Multicolor Blazer + Skinny Leopard belt + Black Jumpsuit

Hello Friends, Happy Monday!
Its a special day, its the extra day of this leap year! That means its extra special. Its an extra day to go for your dreams, be present, enjoy life and be inspired and motivated. Its a great day to get the week started and be productive. Its a day you can certainly leap into your future.  Finding inspiration can come from anywhere and everywhere. I am always looking for different ways to wear my clothing and when I found this sophisticated way to wear a jumpsuit for work I knew I had to style it as well. This is my version of a jumpsuit for work. This outfit is for a work place that is not as strict on their work attire. As a creative professional I can wear this to a job interview, work meeting or a presentation. I really like how it gives me a chic vibe and speaks to my inner confidence and stylish instincts. With this look I can conquer any task for the week ahead like I am a superhero. What do you think? Where would you wear this? Are you motivated yet? Its Monday after all.

Blue Blazer + Pink Petal Pattern Skirt

Hello Friends, Happy Monday! 
Have you been outside today? Have you soaked in a little of the sun this afternoon? This is what I call a spring preview. Every season I feel like God gives us a taste of whats to come in the new season. It's a peek into the future. That's what this weather makes me think. It gets me excited for new adventures, new opportunities and new times. It gets me thinking that I need to get ready, get prepared, be prepared because those spring showers are about to pour me down a blessing from the heavens and I cant wait! By the way when we took these photos it must have been one of the coldest days of the winter. I hope you cant see me shivering! LOL! I really don't know how models do it. I give them all the respect they deserve it. This work wear outfit is a great way to start the week with a little of spring inspiration to give you all the Monday motivation you need.

Black/White Pattern Shift Dress + Two Tone Crop Jacket


Hello Friends, Happy Wednesday! 
Whenever I think of Wednesdays, I always think of the GEICO commercial  with the two camels strolling through the office asking its employees " what day it is? LOL! It cracks me up every single time! Seeing that  gives me the boost I need to get through the day and the week. If you look closely I have layered this dress with the best winter wardrobe essential the Turtleneck. I was so grateful for it last week when we had the cold freeze. Its something that is necessary to any winter wardrobe. I definitely need to write a blog post of 5 reasons why you need a turtleneck and 5 ways to wear it.  This outfit is so workwear appropriate I know you can be motivated and productive to the fullest with the two more days of work. In the meantime check out this outfit which spoke louder than words

Maroon Cotton Dress + Black Flower Print Open Front Jacket

Hello Friends, Happy Monday! 
 If you have not noticed! I love the color maroon. Its by far my favorite color this fall/winter season. I have bought so many maroon pieces that I can definitely wear it all together, layer it, style it with other pieces and extend my obsession until next fall. Its such a rich dark sophisticated color that can be worn at work to a casual weekend out. I wore this look to the mall and then my evening college class. Its one of those looks that is so simple to wear and style. The secret is to wear different hues, variations and textures so it does not look like a uniform. Pairing it with pastel colors will make the outfit stand out all on its own. See here for another way I styled maroon with this Sweater Dress + Skinny Leopard Belt   

What was your favorite color of the Fall/Winter Season?
