Shades of Grey: The Faux Fur

Between packing for an upcoming move and avoiding the unusual cold weather we had for awhile,  I haven't been really motivated to take blog pics lately but when our temps got back to normal this weekend I decided to come out of hibernation. Sometimes bloggers just have to take a step back and take a break....and going into the New Year I will be less focused on sticking to a certain schedule and learn to take time off from blogging when I feel that it is necessary. It can be very time consuming especially when you are balancing a career, a marriage, and life in general.  I don't talk a lot about my personal life on any social media platforms but for those of you who faithfully read my blog and take the time to comment I am going to try to let you guys get to know more of me.

On to my look, I have really been falling in love with the color gray this Fall. In the past I always liked it but didn't buy much of it. As my style continues to evolve, I have been buying more functional basics and I just happened this day to pair this gray faux fur vest with my gray pencil skirt that is one of my workweek basics. To break up the gray I wore a basic 3/4 sleeve black top and paired it with basic black pumps and my favorite everyday black bag.

Holiday Glam: One Dress Two Ways

I know a lot of you are looking for fab Holiday attire and right now I'm in the midst of moving so shooting OOTDS is kind of tough so I decided to find looks and put them together for you to give you some inspiration. I found a super cute sequin dress for you guys that comes in red and black and I love that it's not the almost typical bodycon's a sheath dress. I think sheath dresses are classier and more versatile then the bodycon dresses.

For this look I created two looks with a red sequin dress. I only have the link to a similar dress but hopefully you guys can find similar accessories that are inspired by these sets.

This dress is from Ashley Stewart and also comes in black

WorkWear Wednesdays :Leather and Burgundy

Hi guys,

Today I'm coming with a look for those of you who work in a less traditional office. At my place of employment we have a strict dress something like this would be totally out of the question. I put together yet another look featuring black and white with a touch of burgundy.

I think the leather skirt adds some additional interest to this look as well as the burgundy pumps and bag. Click below for similar items

Check out the look and the pieces I found below:

Leather, Kimonos, and Blue Suede Shoes

I'm still in love with Kimonos. I started wearing them this Summer and have taken them well into this Indian Summer  Fall, I have been buying them in everything from solid colors to prints and textures and all different lengths. I have come to realize that I am in love with the longer length Kimonos for Fall and prefer the shorter lengths for warmer weather.

I was playing around with texture this time around and decided to pair it with leather leggings...Since the look was all black I decided to add stripes and some blue. For whatever reason my shoes photographed lighter but they are actually the same shade of blue as my scarf...either way I'm still pleased with this look.

It can be very easy to get sucked into all dark colors during the colder Months but injecting even the tiniest but of color can do wonders for any look.

The Look For Less: Aminah Abdul Jillil Pumps for Less

I know a lot of you are getting ready for the Holidays and looking for fabulous shoes to complete your outfits. The Aminah Abdul Jillil pumps have been one of the Internet's most lust-worthy pumps especially after they were featured on the Fashion Bomb Daily. For a designer shoe the price was low compared to other designer price points, but I've found an even better steal on an inspired pump.

The Hadley pump from Justfab is only 40.00 and looks very similar to the Aminah Jillil pump. I've heard that the designer pump was very painful to walk in so I'd rather spend 40 than 200 and be uncomfortable if I had to choose. Are you feeling the inspired pump? It also comes in black.

WorkWear Wednesday: The Structured White Shirt ft Foxcroft

Hi guys,

I'm back with part two of my Foxcroft review. Today I'm talking about the importance of a structured white top. Every woman needs a staple white top with structure in her wardrobe..they can be worn to the office, with distressed jeans, and the list goes on. The thing I love about this Foxcroft top is that it is high quality fabric, structured yet it has some stretch and makes it comfortable for it to wear and not tight or binding. On me it looks better belted than it does not belted but that's my personal opinion. I also love the sleeve length...for some reason long sleeve collar shirts feel uncomfortable to me but this one with the 3/4 sleeve length is perfect for me and doesn't feel constricting.

If you want to spice up your work attire a bit, add embellishments or animal print to your look. For this look I added a belt with embellishments, a structured bag, and incorporated a subtle animal print with my shoes. I kept my makeup very fresh with neutal colored lips. I love colored lips but when I'm at work I tend to stick with nudes lipsticks and glosses for everyday wear.
