Hey Chics!

Have you ever woken up not wanting to get dressed up AT ALL? That was me today! I woke up wanting to wear extremely comfy clothes (plus it’s super HOT in Florida). The thing was… I had a business meetup today, so I had to come up with a Comfy Business Casual Blend, or CBCB (I literally just made that up lol).

I looked in my dresser and picked out my favorite shirt, pants, and shoes. I combined three of my favorite articles of clothing together, and it actually created the PERFECT ensemble! After doing a quick natural makeup look, I was ready to take on the day as Operation Comfy was in full effect. Let’s just say I had a great meeting and Operation Comfy was a huge success (and I received several compliments, too)!

Below is my Comfy Business Casual Blend (sounds like a coffee flavor) Outfit of the Day:

  • La Femme Shirt at Cotton On

    This shirt may look familiar because it made it to my 8 Basic Fashion Essentials - Look Book post! This sleeveless shirt is very loose and was the perfect tuck-in shirt for the hot weather I was about to experience!

  • Pinstripe Cigarette Pants at SHEIN

    I have had these pants for over 8 months, and they’re still kickin’! What’s great about these pants is that they are elastic, so they STRETCH! There’s nothing like good stretchy pants to make an outfit!

  • Larisa Pump at ShoeDazzle

    Since I am a #ShoeDazzlePartner, I get complimentary shoes every now and then to review! When you think ‘heels,’ your first thought normally is ‘uncomfortable,’ but these are the contrary. The heel is the perfect height and it is a WEDGE heel, which makes a huge difference when it comes to comfort! These were the perfect pair of heels to complete my entire look (plus they matched my shirt).

I hope you enjoyed my OOTD! Let me know in the comments what your favorite Comfy outfit is!

FOREVER 21 Try-On Haul + Life Update & NEW Wig!

I’m BAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!

It’s been awhile since I posted a YouTube video (or any post at that).

I have some life updates which have kept me so very busy:

  1. I started my Master of Science - Entrepreneurship 1-Yr degree program on top of my Full-Time job, so I literally have NO life.

  2. YOUR GIRL IS ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, George finally popped the question, and of course, I SAID YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am the happiest girl in the universe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will be doing my very best to stay consistent with posting, especially since I have new ideas for the blog in the near future. ;)

As a welcome back, I decided to do a Try-On haul video with FOREVER 21 fashion and accessories. They had a HUGE sale this week where you would get 50%OFF your entire order at checkout if your cart had 5 sale items or more (Of course, I bought like 11 things - teehee).

On top of the fashion haul, I am now rocking this BADASS wig from YouMay on Aliexpress! I’ve had this wig for a month now, and it’s still going strong (I think it’s the one y’all)! All the deets will be provided below.

ENJOY THE HAUL!!!

8 Basic Fashion Essentials - Look Book

Hey Chics!

We all have our OOTDs, but what about those days where you want to just go “Back To Basics”? I have many outfits where I’m constantly thinking:

“What shoes can I match with that?”

“That’s not work-friendly.”

“The only way I can where that is if I put my face on, but I really don’t feel like putting on makeup…”

“I need ‘Roll Out of Bed clothes’.”

Here are just a few items I purchased that are simple and easy to pair with ANYTHING:
