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!
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.”
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!
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

My name is Ayesha! Emanee is my middle name, Emanee best fits my inner diva. I am originally from San Diego California, and I love, to eat, shop, sleep and repeat! I am the youngest of 5 and I definitely am and old soul with a whole lot of spunk! I have been known to be the life of the party.
I moved to Virginia when I was 18 and attended Norfolk State University. “Behold the Green and Gold” I earned my bachelors degree in Business Marketing. In college is where I gained my self confidence to love me for me. I also gave my life to Christ which was one of the best decisions I ever made for myself. I graduated and moved on to obtaining my MBA in Business and Technology. I soon landed a job in Atlanta GA and married the love of my life.
My love for fashion came from growing up skinny! I used to sketch long ball gowns and watch my mother shop, and dress as if she was always on stage somewhere. My mother was the one who always taught us to “always look your best no matter where you are going…you never know who you will meet!”
I created this blog to inspire all women to love the inner and outer you. I have many stories from my past and present that shape the way I put together outfits. I hope you enjoy the stories and snap shot of my life while being inspired!
This Blog is dedicated to my mom and you lovely Divas!

What physical trait most defines you? That’s an odd question! I ask this because, being skinny, my long hair and my big ears is what has always defined me. Till this day people can’t believe that my hair is real. To every skinny joke under the sun to being deemed Dumbo for my ears.
However My hair, skinny frame and big ears are actually my best traits! Society wants you to believe that having big boobs, thick hips and a booty will make you feel more like a women. So not true! God gave me exactly what I needed. Lord only knows what women I would be if I had all the other things I just listed. My hair can go form curly to straight.. my small frame allows me to even shop in the kids section (winning) and my ears.. I chalk that up Ms. Tyra banks and calling them FIERCE!
This outfit has me feeling like I am dancing in the sunshine back in the 70’s. From the off the shoulder white blouse, boyfriend painted semi cuffed rips jeans. I added these knotted yellow espadrille wedges to decorate my feet and a simple yellow and pink tulip scarf to ask a headband.
I love simple outfits that look so well put together. How do you embrace your most hated physical traits? Have you grown to love them?
