Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #71: Simply Be
Happy #FatshionFriday my loves ūüôā I’ve been hearing wedding bells ever since my fiancee proposed. So today’s title is inspired by an olde wedding providence “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue”. My something blue is this floaty and sheer little dress by Simply Be. Dress features a drop waist and a keyhole cutout at the bust with a tie closure. I can’t seem to escape this cobalt blue color. What can I say it’s infectious? Dress features cap sleeves that flutter as I walk and the hemline brushes right above the knee. I love how easy this dress is too where and style. I paired dress with sparkly silver glitter flats. Flats feature an ankle strap and zipper closure at center back.
I accessorized the look with a large envelope clutch that features a detachable chain link strap. Clutch is printed with diamonds and pearls. My knotted string of pearls and tennis bracelets played off the bag.

You’ll Fall in Love With These Nail Color Trends

Hey Girl Girl ūüôā It’s Manicure Monday and I’m getting you ready for fall with some nail inspiration from Pantone. These colors are directly from their 2016 “Fall Fashion Color Reports“. In efforts to help you all be on trend for the season I compiled this list of polishes. Request these polishes at your local salon or purchase them yourself for a DIY mani & pedi. You can also buy them yourself that way¬† you’ll have them to reuse throughout the season.

FALL 2016: A Unity of Strength, Confidence and Complexity

“The desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism have inspired a Fall 2016 color palette that is led by the Blue family.¬†Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.¬†Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.” – Pantone.Com

It’s Tuesday¬†dolls!!!! One day closer to Fatshion Friday. Today I’m wearing a color combination I like to call hot cocoa with marshmallows. This¬†brown and white tweed crop jacket features¬†a peter pan collar and 3 large button down center front as closure. Snagged this piece during¬†a thrift shopping trip it’s by a brand called COURTENAY. Jacket features 3/4 sleeves and satin lining. I started with this 26W tweed jacket and continued to build on the look.¬†Remember when shopping to always purchase outerwear one size up so that you can comfortably layer your look. Jacket ran a full size smaller than label stated so I went two sizes up.

I paired jacket with white fit and flare dress size 24W by TIANA B. Dress features round neckline, cotton lining, zipper closure at center back. Detachable braided brown¬†belt came with dress and added definition to the waist.¬†Accessorized by with pearl rings, and 6 layer pearl and gold chain necklace. Found this great linen dress on the clearance rack for $3, shout out to those who don’t wear white after Labor Day.
