Work Style: Dress On Pants

Weekend is over and we are back to work again.
I decided to wear my DRESS over my PANTS and put on that oversized blazer.

I love wearing dresses, but I prefer most not showing my gams, that they be worn over my leg warmers: leggings and then now, my pants.

Work Style:

What I Wore: 
blazer - Ladies Love /  dress - Lovely Royce  / denim straight cut jeans - Forever 21/bag and necklace - Coach / patent leather pumps - Payless / watch - Guess / sunglasses - G. Country Mall

Trend Alert: Pleated Midi Skirt in Vintage Marsala

The word vintage is hackneyed and overly cliched, do you so agree?
But then again, here I am, using the word as another title for my blog post.

Why use the word "vintage"?  My outfit in this post is a mix of seemingly "vintage" and brand new fashion pieces.  I love mixing and matching vintage (thrifted or hand-me-downs) and contemporary (modern or even futuristic) pieces in one look.

In this post, I am also sharing a HOW-TO-WEAR a certain fashion piece.  Heard of a MIDI-MAXI SKIRT DRESS?  It is actually just a maxi skirt that is worn as a dress.  How is it worn?  By pulling up the garterized waist of the skirt up to the neckline, and there you have a dress, now in midi-length.  You can opt for cinching it with a belt or have it loose.

The PLEATED MIDI SKIRT is one of the trends for Spring 2016. Click HERE for more details of the trends for the season.

What I Wore:
marsala maxi pleat skirt + printed cropped cardigan - unbranded (thrifted) / hat - unbranded @ Goodwill, Woodstock, Georgia, U.S.A /black  stretch belt - G. Country Mall / marsala embellished flats - Steve Madden @ The Outlets in Woodstock, Georgia, U.S.A. / necklace - gifted

Going Bananas and Stripes

I love wearing colorful, printed dresses which reminds me of summer.  The BANANA prints impart that tropical vibes.  But I what I love doing more is wearing these dresses with my trusted black leg warmers underneath.  

Here's me on one of my favorite go-to outfit, out and about the metro doing some errands and some trifling dates in between.

What I Wore:
dress -HM.Luscious / black leggings - G. Fiesta Mall / fuchsia flats - MNG / bag - Kate Spade / sunglasses - G. Country Mall / bracelets - SM Kids Accessories / earrings - gifted by my sister's friend

Another love of mine is discovering new fashion brands.  The dress I am wearing is one creation by HM.LUSCIOUS.  I love the perfect mix of femininity and quirkiness in their designs and that generous selection of saturated hues is a bonus.
