Fashion For Monday

Happy Monday Divas! I’m feeling refreshed and revitalized today. I have some goals to work on this week and I plan to accomplish them. I can honestly say that this year has brought me many “mini breakdowns” so I am thriving to do better with controlling my ups and downs and looking at the downs as ups and the ups as UPs!

img_2673

It’s Monday and we often get what we call the Monday Blues.. I don’t know why but everyone praises Friday for the weekend.. However Friday is the end to Monday and Monday allows us to start of fresh. We should praise each day like it’s our last! Today’s motivational quote comes from Charles R. Swindoll. He states that “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”

img_2677

I totally agree! Far too often I have flown off the handle and literally spiraled out of control i my mind with anger, sadness, beating myself up or whatever the situation may be.. my reactions were totally uncalled for. I have even taken it out on the people I love. or just snapped lol.. I am laughing now but it’s not funny in the mist of it because not everything “bad” that happens is truly bad. It can be a warning sign and a blessing from God!

img_2668

Since I have been trying to look at all things positively, it has changed my mindset to feel “stress free.” Instead of living on the edge and living more in line with that God has for you even if that means something doesn’t go your way it’s okay because there’s always a better plan right down the road!

I thought I would do a Monday shot mixed with business and casual. Why because that’s how our minds are! Well at least mine is. We still want to have the comfort of the weekend but with our game face on!

My houndstooth red and black blazer is from my sis Kisha this was a vintage thrifted item I found on her site at Kisharosetreasures.com. Chic out her website as she has awesome apparel and jewelry! By the way this is not an ad just one boss queen supporting another! Of course I had to find a Monday t-shirt.. why not it’s Monday! This t-shirt can be found at Fab’rik along with so many other other cute designs. I decided to put this look with a pair of tuxedo chinos form the express.. These pants were giving to me from a friend! However I have linked some styles down below. My cheetah print sneakers tie this entire look together and yes they are form Fab’rik as well! Don’t see your size there’s tons of inventory in a Fab’rik store near you.

2 Years down and Forever 2 Go

Hey ladies, I’ve been a bit MIA trying to start some new business ventures, trying to dive into some new job opportunities and of course trying o maintain this blog and content for you all. I admit I have been failing at it horribly but I haven’t given up.. Hey sometimes we need a break and then to get back up and try again. This year has been rough but I am trying to plan for the months ahead and hit 2020 with a bang. Yep already projecting out 2020.

img_2579

I just wanted to share with you ladies that over the weekend was my 2 year wedding anniversary with my superhero.. my husband Benjamin. What a joyous milestone to accomplish and it feels so wonderful!

img_2575

I wanted to share with you all my outfit details. I originally bought this 2 piece nautical outfit from Zara unfortunately it’s sold out but don’t worry I found the same outfit on Shein! I like to call this a status print with the nautical rope and chain detail. It’s absolutely stunning and can easily go from day to night.img_2578

You all know I love a good two piece outfit and I am still not ready to get into my high heels since my surgery. The top is actually a sheer tank top with a cape overlay. It adds an elegant touch to this outfit. The pants hit right at the ankle and has a side zipper. the over all material is satin and polyester but feels so silky and comfortable. The best thing about this was that it didn’t make me hot! Perfect for summer and fall.

Are you ready for fall ladies?

1 Blouse 2 Ways

Hey divas, how are you doing out there in this blazing heat? No joke I’m so irritated because I want my hair braided so bad, I want to rock a baiting suit 24/7 and drink pina colads, eat fresh fruit, seafood and fruit all day lol. I know random request but maybe that my #hotgirlsummer. Let’s get into this outfit

Look 1: 70’s Flashback

I just love a cute blouse that can be worn as multiple ways and this one is perfect. First up this lovely pink snake print blouse can be worn on or off the shoulder like I am here. It’s from New York & Company and it’s a very light weight material that can be easily transitioned into the fall. I paired this blouse with these high waisted flare legged Eva Mendes jeans. ladies these jeans fit me like whoa, however although they are true to size they are very long. So if your short like me either wear heels or have them altered! Since I’m not back into my heels yet i opted for these blushing pink Michael Kors tennies that I snatched from TJMaxx. Did you peep my matching little belt bag that’s also MK. that was a super find at TjMaxx as well. DOn’t forget my cute sun hat that’s from Walmart. You all know I love a good sun hat especially on these extremely hot summer days.

Look 2: Cali Vibes

I call this my cali vibes only because I am wearing pink shorts ha! Pink shorts for some reason remind me of my birth place cali. Maybe because my mom always had pink.. always talked about pink shorts or maybe just because! Anyways This year I made it a point to get me some pink shorts and these matched perfectly with my blouse. These shorts are high waisted which make them perfect for crop top and for tucking in cute tops like this. I wanted a chill look so I keep my same accessories!

img_1967

 

It that’s simple. Remember don’t be afraid to mix and match one article of clothing you have to create different looks. This is how you achieve the look of having more than what you actually have in your closet. Trust me I have gone years with mixing and matching and I always get your closet must be huge.. do you spend your entire paycheck on clothes.. No No No, I’m just good at faking it till you make it and in my eyes I have made it.. maybe not to the tip top but I am exactly where i’m supposed to be. Okay divas until next time stay sweet!

June In Bloom

Hi Divas and Happy first Monday of June! It’s been a long while since I have kicked a blog into full swing. However I have the perfect outfit and motivation for you. So let’s dive right tin the goodies.

img_1479

Let’s talk Fear, Faith and Fashion! So I was reading a devotional the other day and it was so perfect for my current situation. You can’t leave in fear without having a strong rooted faith in God.  Your fears can easily overcome your daily tasks, making it hard to function mentally and physically. However this is relation to anything that we do, how? Because we must always have a healthy balance. Our lives must be balanced, whether it’s work life.. healthy food to junk food… working out to not working out..of course to no fashion to fashion.. the list goes on.

img_1481

Meditate on this.. I can do all things with a balanced lifestyle and not succumbing to fear. Be balanced also means that you are powerful and can overcome anything that you set yourself too. So why not do this in style.

This lovely coral and cream outfit is from New York and Company..of course! and it’s from the Eva Mendes collection. This outfit was actually a gift for my birthday.. I know I know super late but guess what it’s still available. This lovely coral knot top is perfect, sexy and light weight for spring and summer. This stripe matching skirt gives the perfect balance with the button and bow tie back in the front or back. Eva always makes outfits super easy to put together. I paired this outfit with my gladiator zip back block heels from JustFab.

img_1475

That’s all you are now fearless.. confident and have your power outfit on.. You are now ready to conquer the week!

Stay Confident and as always xo Happy Fashion Divas.

More Than A Conqueror

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Romans 8:37

I stumbled upon this passage right when I needed it the most. As many of you know my godmother passed last month and it did take me by storm. When I returned home from her funeral my husband had the house clean bed made.. and this devotional sitting on my night stand by my side of the bed. I looked at it and smiled.. but looked closer and this scripture was right on the front cover. I knew this would be our spiritual premise for the month of February.

img_0488

I have faced many challenges and obstacles in my life and boy do I know there’s more to come. I just try to position myself where I am prepared for whatever is to come. I try to learn from what I have already gone through and apply it to the next situation.

So what is a conqueror? What does this word mean to you and how are you allowing God to conqueror your life?

  • To be honest I didn’t know what it meant to conqueror anything. I had never thought about my struggles as accomplishments and conquering them. Whenever a problem or a tasks arise something inside of me would kick into go mode, and to find a solution and execute! Well that all changed as I grew older, wiser and closer to God.
  • Conquering to me means achieving
  • I allow God to conqueror my life by listening to him daily. I have found that I have to be spiritually fed in order to maneuver through life. Daily I must subject myself to him. Because lord knows if I operate in myself I can do some serious damage, make unnecessary mistake etc.

Let’s conqueror this month divas! Be bold, be you and say true!

img_0492

Mali Music- More Than A Conqueror is the perfect song to meditate to this month. I once praised danced too this song and let’s just say.. Amen! To this day it still gives me that energy that I need when feeling low!

Are you ready for these outfit details? You can pare black with anything, it’s a neutral! Since it has warmed up a bit here in Georgia i decided to keep my layers light but still warm enough for that cool breeze that bites yeah in the butt! My all black is from New York And Company. You have seen both the Gabrielle Union bow front sweater and my trusty black leggings… that I need to replace soon! I’m in love with crochet bishop sleeve cardigans.. can’t you tell? It’s from another one of my favorite online boutiques “Shein“! I have this cardigan in grey and red. It comes in several colors ranging from a charcoal grey, sage green and duty pink! My booties.. sorry ladies are so sold out.. I know they sold out within one week but I will leave you a similar pare down below.. To top this look off I added mr crown, from Bold Looks and Head Wraps! Mrs. Juanita hand makes each wrap and I am totally in love with them!

Faith in Fashion

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

It’s Monday divas and I’m back with my Motivational Monday’s but I am switching this up to be called Fashion in Faith for 2019! If you’ve been following me on Instagram @emaneescloset you will know that I recently lost my godmother, friend, second mommy all of the above 2 weeks ago. So this Monday I am seeking positivity and rejuvenating my spirit.

img_0393

I decided that I would use this very well know scripture for today’s motivational Monday quote. Sometimes we need to get back tot he basics instead of complicating life and daily tasks. I am a strong believer of keep things simple… except my clothing lol. Sometimes when things become too hard.. so complicated  that when you need to stop and listen to the lord. How do you listen to God? It’s simple.. seriously just stop.. push out all the negative thoughts, your own thoughts.. this if’s ands, and but’s and allow God to live through you.. God speaks to us all differently and you have to learn to listen to him. This is when you allow God to lead in all things you do.

img_0394

No, it’s not always easy as we tend to just get up and do what feels right.. But who says what we are doing is right? Life gets hard and I have way to many testimonies where God seriously has given me the strength to get over many challenges. Everyday I pray with my husband, and before I go into work I pray again. I never know what that day is going to bring but I tell you one thing that prayer helps! I know you can relate, I’m sure you have gotten a call at work about something, a project stressed you out, a coworker was mean to you.. or even your lunch was nasty (okay maybe not) your child was bad at school, you got a flat tire.. The list goes on.. Divas call on him, he will give the strength to get through all things! Amen

img_0395

Have a good week divas I hope this uplifted you.

Need some motivation through music.. I love this song Called God Held me By Zacardi Cortez

Ladies I kept this outfit super simple and I shopped my closet. My jeans are of course form New York and Company. We all need a good boot cut jean and these were perfect and affordable. The honeycomb sweater is from who knows where I can’t remember that’s how long it’s been! But there are tons of these sweaters everywhere. Girls my blazer was gifted to me from a friend from church!! I love the colors and the print and the fabric is bomb! I have left a few of my favorite blazers below. Yawl already know where my booties are front! Shoedazzle of course. These fur babies are super comfortable ant hey have ribbons for laces..

Why Sweaters are Perfect For “Sweater Weather”

Yes divas it’s officially sweater weather. that’s right, pull out your chunky, knit, turtle neck, hi lo, and all color sweaters out of your closet! I sure am.. If you didn’t know I love sweaters…all types! I don’t discriminate. (lol) anyways, today’s blog is about sweaters.. well obviously! I love mixing a long cardigan with a good sweater.

Why A Cardigan?

Cardigans are my go to in the fall and winter! why? because they add an extra layer of warmth, style and can easily jazz up or dress down an outfit. I stay cold so have a funky layer piece always says i thought about this outfit instead of “I’m cold.” I usually flock towards long cardigans so that it makes wearing leggings, skinny cans, crop tops, or any sweater that hits right at your waist look more professional.. especially if you are int eh work place. Let’s get this right, I don’t wear crop tops to work that’s so not appropriate.

  1. V-neck
  2. Crewneck
  3. Chunky
  4. long line

Why A Sweater?

Because it keeps your warm! Thats so obvious however Sweaters can also be dressed up or down! styled with jeans, slacks, shorts, skirts you name it! I feel like I should have said greens, beans, potatoes.. you name it!! There are so many different styles that at least having the basics are necessary.

  1. V-neck sweaters are great for a business casual look, where you can easily pair a button up collard blouse underneath.
  2. Crew neck, which is also the round neck.
  3. Cowl neck sweater is for someone who like the “thought” of a turtleneck but possibly doesn’t like the “i’m being choked” feeling.
  4. Turtleneck 
  5. Mock neck
  6. Oversized, one of my favs to wear with leggings or skinny jeans.
  7. Cropped
  8. Hi Lo

All of these types of sweaters come in, slim knit, chunky, oversized, cropped, hi lo you name it there’s a sweater that will fit your style.

Now for my look! I went for an all white underneath this crazy english scene print cardigan. True story, my boss thought I was excited about thanksgiving, she thought it was turkey and cranberries on my cardigan. However it’s actually a women in a store selling fruit to a man at a counter. anyway this cardigan coat is super warm, long and has every pop of color your heart desires! I pair it with my chunky cable knit white turtleneck, a pair of skinny Michael Kors jeans and my high hell lace up booties! It’s so simple.

How do you wear your sweaters and cardigans?

If you have been following me you will know that this blouse has been featured and styled multiple ways. It’s honestly a staple in my closet. Dillard’s now has the zip up version which I will leave the link to below.

Topping this look off will be my olde but goody brown tweed slacks. I purchased these babies about 4 years ago from my favorite store New York and Company.
