Victoria Dashiki | OOTD

I wore this victorian inspired dashiki in NewYork during NYFW 2016 and it made me feel like a ball of fire:untouchable and hot. The rich variations of reds, oranges and yellows give that blaze effect. It was as though I left a trail of flames in my every step. When you’re wearing the right clothing, it should make you feel invincible. I can’t tell you how many strangers loved this top and stopped me to ask about it. Every now and then, you must make a statement and on this day, I did it in this fabulously ruffled top. Enjoy!

Never Basic Tees | OOTD

I am beyond happy to bring you an OOTD sponsored by one of my absolute favorite places to shop. I have partnered with Old Navy to help you style tees  in a way that will make you feel like casual royalty.

Sometimes t-shirts can get a bad reputation because they seem so basic in nature. I have news for you. A great fitting, well made t-shirt in the right color and style is never basic! This OOTD shows you how bold and versatile a t-shirt can be with the right style tips.

For starters, take a #NeverBasic  Old Navy Tee that you love and build your look around it. To spice up a graphic tee like I did, go for something a little bit unexpected. I gave my relaxed fit Shine Bright tee a dressier look by layering it on top of a button down shirt in a contrasting  green color. The collar on my button down takes my tee to the next level, yet lets my tee do all of the talking. I paired my black denim jeans with this look because it provides even more contrast from what I have going on above the waist but it also ties into the color of the text on my tee. Lastly, in cooler weather one last layer does the trick. I’ve topped of the entire look with my medium length trench coat. One of the main reasons this look works so well is because of all the neutral tones. Keep that in mind as you pull together your look.

This is just ONE awesome way to style the heck out of a tee. Leave me a comment about how you can take your tee to level #NeverBasic , Enjoy!

Chain Mail Knit | OOTD

When the calendar says September, it’s fall to me! If only Houston agreed and cooled down by at least 10 degrees. Lol I can’t let these warm temperatures stop my preparation for true fall weather.

This OOTD is a casual knit sweater that reminds me of medival chain mail because of its weight. It’s from Banana Republic and it feels so good on. My trusty black denim jeans from Old Navy and black converse always do the trick to help bring together a casual look. Leave me a comment about how you’re preparing your closet for fall. Enjoy!
