Purpose & Passion

Purpose and Passion is the theme for March. My hopes are to dig deep this month and finding your purpose which equals your passion. I have talked about this before lightly. However I think it’s a good time to revisit this. Not only for you all to be motivated but me as well. I tend to have atones of ideas, thoughts, passions and goals and some i never execute. However I am so exited that I have my girl tribe. IF you haven’t read my blog post about why you need a girl tribe check it out here.

Anyways let’s dive into this Faith In fashion motivation. “Great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind; you reward each person according to their conduct and as their deeds deserve.” Jeremiah 32:19. This month I tend to explore some of my goals and my purpose. Truly write and define and try to execute the ones that truly reflect my purpose. I want you all to write a goal, define and execute. let’s see how far we get this month! It will be interesting, well for me anyways. Are you ready to Conquer March ladies? Remember the theme is Purpose and Passion. Let’s rock your purpose in style.

For this outfit, I wanted to a do a super classy and chic look. I mixed a little bit of old with new! You all know I love New York and Company, and I just had to snag this Gabrielle Union overalls that were on super clearance! No longer available however they have something similar! I love the cute adjustable buckles that snap in the back. This skinny pant leg overalls will set you apart especially in the office! I paired it with this roaring blue leopard blouse form JcPenny.. cough cough years ago. But the way I switch out my clothes you would think it was new! Topping this look off with a sequin beret and stank heel faux suede booties did the trick. And let’s not forget my blue floral and leather moto jacket. this was a major find and steal from TjMaxx a few years ago. Don’t sleep on the steals.

Whether it’s a favorite color, print/pattern, ruffles, high collar blouse, bell sleeves, flare legs, maxi skirts, skinny leg pants, find it! Once you find what you love you will begin to develop your sense of style! Like I said I feel like I tend to overdo it thats why most of my family calls me the Diva! And that fine I welcome it!

 

Start mixing and matching you favorite pieces

img_0400

Start mixing neutrals with a pop of color. Once you have spiced up your outfit with color then throw in a print. Complimentary prints will add a sense of character to your outfit. If I’m unable to find the perfect print to match with my solid I tend to jazz it up with my accessories  Fun shows, purses and head wear can also do the trick.

 

If it’s wrong then it’s right

Remember there is no wrong to fashion.. well there are a few rules when mixing prints. Im sure I wrote a blog on this if I find it I will link it here! Colors often can be your best friend  In this case take my outfit I have mixed snake print with cheetah print? Yes 2 different animals but it works. How? Well they are both in the same color family.. Did you even notice the 2 different prints. It’s subtle things like this that will make you the ultimate fashionista!

So how did you do? I seriously want to see how you styled some of your closet treasures! I have talked about this before on my blog that your clothing is a form of expression, your identity and your creativity.

Now for the details on my look. Let’s start off with these radical boots. They are from Ericdress. They sent me a bunch of items and these boots were the only thing that actually checked out! Yay cause they are hot fire! I paired these mixed media snack print faux suede boots with my  purple suede jump or what we call midi dress. This dress is so comfortable, thick and lined. This was a Dillards find from a few years ago! I honestly had no idea how to add the orange let alone if I was going to wear orange with this look. To be honest I thought ti was so far out there and had to convince myself that this was bomb.. and it is! This chunky knit sweater is from H&M, I picked this beauty up for $15. I topped my look off with a Leopard print belt and bag.. and of course some old fashioned sunnies.

What Is Your Fashion Inspiration?

Sometimes we don’t realize where we find our inspiration from and other times we just follow the trends. Each year as I get older I count my blessings and realize how much I am becoming more like my mother. Not just by the way I look, but how I pair my outfits.

I am keeping it simple on today’s blog with this eyelet white maxi dress. I bought this last season from New York & Company for my honeymoon. I didn’t have the chance to wear it as it was extremely hot in St. Lucia. This maxi dress is delicately made as it has eyelet laces, crochet and comes with a lining! Awesomely made. I decided to pair this dress with my blue and white nautical stripe wedges from Justfab. Let’s not forget I love a good sun Hat. Keeping along with the fresh nautical theme this blue and white strip hat is the perfect match! Don’t like hats? throw on a cute pair of sunnies. Basket weave purses are trending right now and I just so happen to have one in blue from TJmaxx.

As I was looking through some family photos, I came across this picture of my mom in this white maxi dress. I couldn’t help but laugh because here I am in the same type of dress. Thanks mom!

Where do you find inspiration from?

Flats or Heels? Spring Accessories

IMG_4442IMG_4451IMG_4448IMG_4447IMG_4452IMG_4450

Divas I have been asked so many times if I prefer heels or flats. Honestly I prefer comfort. I secretly have feet problem and hate to be in pain.. Don’t get me wrong I have a plethora of heels but when it comes to looking good I make sure I have extra cushioning, a block heel or flats. Although I love to get into my stellitoes I make sure I have a change of shoes to still be fashionable!

In today’s look I am giving you 1 outfit with 2 different pairs of shoes, same color and style just different heel heights. This outfit is super chill, comfortable and oh so cute! Kimonos are a spring and summer must have. As these can make any simple outfit look chic. I love long kimonos over a pair of jeans, jumpsuits or crop pants. I opted for this simple red orange blouse. Both of these tops are form Ross and snagged both for only $8.99! wow what a bargain.

I am new but old to this rip jean trend, as my mom had bought me a pair when I was a teenager and I was afraid of looking 18 again.. Which is not a bad thing but I am forever being told I look under age.. Yes I still get carded till this day. Anyways these jeans are form New York and Company and they are actually on sale. They are great jean material and offer a nice stretch to them. I love the distressing on these as off an edgy look tho this outfit.

Now for my accessories, This simple cream purse is from H&M snagged this last year for only $4.99 on clearance. I chose these fuchsia heels with fringe to elevate this look. However if you are more into comfort you can have the same look  with the sandal version. I found both of these from JustFab last season. JustFab has been great with offering a shoe is different styles. Below I have similar products to achieve this look.

How do you pair your accessories with your outfits?

A Spring Fashion Must Have

IMG_4384IMG_4386IMG_4389IMG_4395IMG_4390

Bold colors and prints are a must have this spring and summer. Polka dot in particular is hot! Ranging from black, blue, reds the polka dot color options are endless. Polka dot print never goes in or out of style, it’s something that should always be a staple piece in your wardrobe. Prints like this can be dressed up or down. Don’t be afraid to wear sneakers, or t-shirts with statement prints. Try it you just may like it. Le’t get into this outfit.

Just FYI this entire outfit is from New York and Company.. and all items are currently on sale! I am totally loving this Viva La Cuba t shirt from the Eva Mendes collection. I usually would rock this with a pair of jeans or skinny leg trousers. But I had to go bold and pair it with the polka dot skirt.. Well Eva did it best! The circle skirt has pockets with a small side v slit. I decided to make this outfit pop by pairing my orange pumps with this outfit.  bringing out the orange from the top to the bottom is the perfect match! Another color that i tried was hot pink. Play around with colors and prints to find your perfect match.

Don’t let spring slip away with out jazzing it up in bold prints and colors!

5 Tips For A Date Night Outfit

IMG_4333IMG_4331IMG_4327IMG_4330IMG_4335IMG_4328

Divas I’m serving you 5 fab tips for your date night. let’s dive right in.

  1. Location: knowing where you are going is key. If it’s a surprise try to play it safe and pick an outfit that is not to casual and not to dressy. However my family and friends always say I am over the top.. and I must admit, I can be at times but at least I stay true to myself. I always usually dress fancy when going out.
  2. Good under garments: I am flat chested.. that’s no secret.. I am def apart of the itty-bitty-titty committee but that does NOT stop me from wearing a good supportive bra. Yes supportive because I have to fake it till I make it :). Panties matter too. If you are not a thong girl you can always find seamless underwear at Victoria Secret, Macy’s, Dillards or even TJMAXX. I repeat do not..do not wear form fitting clothes and have your pantie line showing. That’s a complete no no.
  3. Dress for your body type: If this is a date with a special someone. you want to put your best foot forward. I say this because we all want to be respected and love for who we are on the inside.. not the outside. treat yourself with respect first by dressing appropriately to your size.
  4. Hair & Makeup:
    1. Hair: Yes this matters. Most women know this. However I allow the clothes to speak to me and dictate weather I wear my  hair up, down, bun, or curly. usually sleek looks like a good body wave or a bun look good for date nights. but you be the one to choose. (Let me know if you would like for me to post date night hairstyles)
    2. Makeup: I am not one to totally speak on makeup as I barely wear any. However I like to believe less is more.. Show your inner beauty and let the makeup accentuate what you already have.
  5. Accessories:
    1. Shoes: I like to find shoes that will add color or a pattern to my outfit. There are so many varieties out to today to fit your specific style and foot needs. Try JustFab who even carry wide width. DSW is my next favorite one stop shop.
    2. Jewelry : Depending if you are dressing fancy or casual, simple hoops, or diamond drop studs are always staple jewelry pieces for me. I always like to have a single solitaire diamond necklace and a bracelet to spice things up. Macy’s, Charming Charlie, or even New York and Company always have great deals on fashion statement jewelry.
    3. Purse: Make sure your purse is big but cute enough to hold these essentials: lipstick or lip balm, tissue, phone, wallet, keys, travel perfume, gum or mint, touch up makeup and some cash.
    4. Cover up: depending on what season it is.. don’t be afraid to carry a light sweater or a cute leather jacket just in case it gets cold.

What are some of your favorite date night tips?

Turn Up The Heat With Color!

IMG_4232IMG_4230IMG_4238IMG_4231IMG_4236

 

As the temperature here in Georgia starts to heat up, my clothes and color choices do too.  I have been so eager to break out into bright colors. One of my favorite work looks are slim leg pants and a printed blouse. This style is not foreign to Emanee’s Closet as I love a good skinny pant and blouse however the paper-bag waist pant is so hot and trending right now. These are the tapered high waisted version of the wide leg pants that you have seen on the blog.

I was instantly drawn to the hot pink pants.. well I have only been searching for like 4 years, for the perfect hot pink pant! And… of course I found them at New York and Company. Pairing this cute trousers with a vibrant printed top only adds a touch personality to this look. This blouse has cuffed sleeves and can be worn tucked in our out with slacks like I have or even jeans. I love pieces that you can inter-change to dress them up or down!

Let’s not forget this cute kitten heel bow tie pump. Of course form JustFab! These lovelies come in black and blush pink. They are a faux suede material and are very comfortable. These shoes are a perfect match for the office or even a weekend look with jeans.

How are your welcoming spring into your closet?

“I have learned that as long as I hold fast to my beliefs and values – and follow my own moral compass – then the only expectations I need to live up to are my own.”
– Michelle Obama.

I am holding onto my beliefs in God, morals, values and my goals. It has been a struggle to push myself to do more. Not that I am not doing enough but I have always been someone with multiple projects going or jobs. Now as a married women I am finding that things are changing.. for the good 🙂 I have ideas that I really would like to explore I just need to take that leap and become that true “Girl Boss” I already am!

This outfit is an representation of me right now. Solid green jumpsuit with a matching green tassel necklace. Shows my strength and stability on the outside. The shoes are funky in print which has always been the inner me. I added the black and white to show the contrast of my ideas form being bright to dark of where I need to step into the light and jump into my dreams and ideas!

What are you inspirations for this week?
