Hello Everyone, Happy Monday! 
Today I realized that this Owl Sweater I'm wearing is so on trend this fall!! I got it about 2 years ago from Madewell. It is the Animal motif sweater trend where its all about foxes, horses and others. I know since when do I follow trends especially the trends that are in season. I have always valued personal style over being fashion forward, or trendy but it only works when I actually like the trend and it fits seamlessly into my current wardrobe for fall. My personal style seems to have shifted to a lot of neutrals, like grey, white and black which I find myself gravitating toward each morning as I look at my closet.  I have now pulled all my sweaters and fall weather clothing out of storage and into the forefront!  This is the sweater that came stepped forward and gave me the inspiration to style it for this blog post. It's interesting how things come together when you least expect and it flows naturally into exactly what you want to do and wear for the day! 

What are some of the fall trends that you will incorporate into your fall wardrobe this season?

Hello, Happy Monday Everyone!

I loved the feeling it gave me, this other side of my personality came out and it surprised me in a good way! I have also realized that when you try something new you discover something new about you and it challenges you to a whole another level. As they say its something worth exploring! Cheers to new discoveries and to always trying something new.

Hello Everyone, Happy Tuesday! 
Have you noticed something different? If you figured it out, No Sunglasses were needed in the photo shooting of these blog photos! It was a cloudy day and I decided that I wanted to wear this very fall plaid/tartan midi skirt on the blog! Can you believe I found it at a local thrift store. I guess when you find a plaid midi skirt that fits just right you buy it most definitely!! I also just realized that the plaid/tartan midi skirt is so on trend this fall. What are the odds? Well, its like the styling of this outfit it came to me naturally in a vision/dream and came as a perfectly styled with the leather jacket and coral cay necklace from Stella & Dot complement the outfit.

Life Lately + Fall Fashion Lookbook

Hello Everyone, Happy Monday!
 As promised in the last outfit blog post. Life has been really busy in a good way! The last few weeks have been a whirlwind! I made a decision that it was time to step up to the challenge and take a leap of faith to the next level for this style blogging journey. I want to constantly learn and grow to become a better me. It started with being a fashion designer assistant for a private fashion showcase. It was so much fun, styling and working with models and seeing the behind the scenes of the inner workings of a fashion production. It helped me realize that there is so much more I could do within the fashion industry that I initially thought. My world has expanded and grown to new levels and I'm excited to experience it all. Another event  I attended was with CAPFABB(the Capitol area of fashion and beauty bloggers) and it was  the very first #CapFABBACACEMY  located at CityCenter DC, where we learned how to turn your blog into a business! It was very informative  and realistic by a blogger panel from the DC area. My new friend Erin from the Bagladies radio website has a great summary of what we talked about. Check it out here: 5 Branding/Blogger Lessons from CapFABBAcademy So I have also networked at Blogger brunch with Fashion Blogger United, collaborated with a travel YouTuber Gloria Powell, styled a fall casual Lookbook in old town Alexandria, planned and decorated a Welcome Fall Dinner Party for my close friends. This weekend we celebrated my friend's milestone birthday with a surprise completely unknown to her. It was a successful surprise!  Now, I'm currently planning and styling a holiday style challenge for November. I have learned that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.It is important that in order to see our wildest dreams come true, we must be realistic, objective and set goals and timelines, otherwise it will never happen. 
Last night I went to a women's event called "Embrace Her" at my church and I was really struck by the quote, I'm too busy working on my own grass to notice yours is greener"  I learned that God gives us one life and I should spend time focusing on living the life that He gave me. So I should spend less time comparing, following the lives of others and spend time building my own. Making my grass greener is now my primary focus after experiencing all the fun activities that I had these past few weeks. I also collaborated with Gloria Powell to create a FALL Fashion Lookbook. It was a  lot of  fun styling and filming in old town Alexandria to order to create this fashion masterpiece. Watch it here below. 



What are some ways you stay focused "working on your own grass"? Do you have good ways you stay productive?
