Striped Front Slit Wiggle Dress

Hi loves!

I hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving for my U.S based readers. I am thankful for my little family that I get to call mine and family and friends both far and near. And, I am thankful for you my readers as well. Thank you for following along on this journey with me.
While still in the spirit of thanksgiving, I feel like I am in a constant food coma, which means my days have been unproductive.  Too tired from eating and taking a nap after each meal.  Let's just say, I can't wait to get back to normal. 

We hosted thanksgiving this year with two of my sisters joining us and it was perfect.The kids  definitely enjoyed having another baby to run around the house with. 

 I don't believe you can go wrong with a good wiggle dress. They are simple yet different enough depending on which style, material and pattern. I have a good number of this dresses and when it's just a matter of time before the next one finds its way to my closet. They are appropriate for work and play and are usually easy to style. Stripe and black and white are some of my favorite combination. The front slit on this one adds an extra flair to it. While it doesn't have pockets like most of my other wiggle dress does, it still holds it own. 
For this look I styled it with a cream colored covered heeled and a matching clutch.

Have a great weekend!

Jacquard Stripe Jumpsuit

Hi loves!
 I think I am coming to a point where I can appreciate a good jumpsuit. I've always loved jumpsuits, they are so easy to wear and style / transition. I do have to say the reality of wearing one hits you in the face when you have to use the ladies room and you find yourself, well, naked from head to toe. But that's only for a moment so it is all worth it. 

It is hard to miss or pass on this particular Asos jumpsuit. You all know I am a stripe lover so that got my attention and then the color! Did I mention I have a thing for burgundy in the fall? Oh yes I did here. While for some reason I have been cautiously trying to stay away from anything with a bandeau neckline, that wasn't enough to keep me away from this piece. And to make matters worse it was sold out in my regular size 4. I knew I could make a size 6 work, it might actually be better for this style not to have it so fitted and body hugging, so I took the leap of faith and bought it in a size 6 and well, let's just say all is well. 
Playing off the burgundy tone in the jumpsuit, I piled on, literally, more burgundy to profess my love for it. Added my burgundy coat and bag. For a chic pulled together look and to define the waistline, I belted the coat. Since there's a lot happening on the top. I opted for a simple black pump to complete the look. 
Another way to easily style this jumpsuit for fall will be adding a crisp white button down shirt underneath. 
Oh, did I mention it is my birthday today!

Entering into my final year in my twenties. So, got to live it up this year…

Top Pick Sweaters :: Under 40

Hi Loves!

It official feels like genuine sweater weather here in North Carolina. Having lived in the Midwest and Northeast for some years, fall and winter in North Carolina is actually something I look forward to, instead of dreading it. The winters are not too harsh here; I know I can expect a little cold but nothing in the negative degrees and having everything shut down for a few inches of snow, in my opinion is just one of the perks as well. As I get ready to bring my sweaters out from hiding and considering the possibility of adding one or two new ones, today I am sharing my top picks for consideration. All under $40 and as low as $12.99. One already made it way home, will see which is next.

Happy Thursday! 

Plaid Check & Long Line Coat

Hi Loves!
Welcome to the new week.
Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was good and productive. With the extra hour gained, I wise I could say I spent it sleeping or something more pleasurable but I spent it in the kitchen cooking.
For a change we had a family movie night. We made it through the movie with two babies without having to step out once. Eliana is pretty good at movies as long as she has something to munch on. Emmanuel did pretty good as well. Was a bit fussy as the beginning but only because he wanted to sleep. As soon as he found his comfort position, he was out; which made the movie more enjoyable. We saw the new THOR movie and I have to say, it might be the best of the THOR series.
Talking about movies, I can not wait to see the Black Panther. Anyone else follow the whole Avengers series?

On to the look. Starting the week off on the blog with this plaid look. The weather is finally having fall temperament here in North Carolina and I am ready for it!
 I love set / co-ord pieces so, when I came across this set, I knew it will be very appropriate for fall and as always will be perfect paired together or separately.  It is fairly easy to style matching pieces, all you need is to add some accessories and you're set. For this look, a pair of black heels and a long line coat  was all I needed to complete the look.
Have a great day!
