This post is coming out a little later in the day than I planned.  However, it’s probably for the best that it’s a little late. Now, I can express how grateful I am for all of you who have supported me constantly.  I’m truly overwhelmed by all of the love I’ve been receiving today!  Y’all really made a girl feel special.

As always, I’m looking forward to the future! I’m excited about life, and I can’t wait to see what it has in store! I hope that you will continue along with me on this journey!!! Love y’all!!!

Thank you for stopping by!  Speak to you soon!

The Perfect Power Suit For The Office

F45A630A-B965-41DB-9A17-C60837EE2153

The office that I work in is pretty casual.  A pair a jeans, some cute shoes, and a nice top are considered “dressy” for me when I go to work.  However, I am a believer that you are what you wear.

DEE832AB-F618-4329-ADC7-89719A4C8DAD

So, on those days when I want to feel like a strong, powerful, go-getter, I throw on my cape AKA my “Power Suit” and get to work.  A good suit will have you convinced that you can run the world!  Who doesn’t want that feeling?

Power Suits are trending all over right now.  I think it’s because they provide instant style.

Yea, suits were initially designed for men.  However, there is no denying that us women wear them better.

And now they come in so many different prints and designs.  There is a power suit out there for everyone.

Also, there is something about a matching blazer and pants set that make you excited to head to whatever event you have planned.  It’s probably because getting dressed is as easy as 1-2-3!

This blazer and pants set are from the Who What Wear™ Collection at Target.  The fit of this jacket is perfect and so are the pants.  Both feel like they’ve been tailored just for me. The pants are made of a stretchy fabric which I love.  I need to be able to move in my suit.  If you’re looking for an expensive, awesome fitting power suit, look no further than the Who What Wear™ Collection at Target.  This set is one of the best that I’ve ever purchased.

Do you have a great power suit that you can recommend?  Let me know in the comments below!

I woke up this morning to cool Fall temperatures, and I have to admit that it was very refreshing! In the past, I’ve not been a fan of Fall weather (I probably won’t be this year either), but I’ve actually been looking forward to it. I’m tired of the heat and humidity that have been plaguing us Georgians these last few months.  So, I’m going to enjoy this cool, crisp weather for a moment.

Today, I’m rocking what will probably be my Fall uniform; an over-sized sweater and my favorite skinny jeans.  These boots were on my list of the “5 Boot Trends I’m Excited About This Fall” post here.  Make sure you check that one out. I’m off to enjoy this beautiful weather! I hope you have a great weekend!

Speak to you soon!

It never fails that every time I’ve gone to a clothing store these last few weeks, I’ve been tempted to purchase something plaid.  It could be pants, a skirt, ANOTHER blazer, or even boots; I am totally obsessed with plaid. That’s usually the case around this time of the year though.  Such was the case when I saw these cute pants at H&M.  I knew I had to have them!  And this t-shirt was hanging right beside them.  So, I felt like the universe was telling me that I should buy them both lol!  I obliged!  Per my usual, I kept this look simple with my favorite hat, heels, and belt bag.  This has to be one of my favorite looks to date.  I love when I put together a look without having to think too much about it. I hope y’all enjoy this super easy and simple look!  To see more of my favorite plaid looks, click here, here, here, here, and here.

The Perfect Dress to Transition into Fall

I purchased this dress during Zara’s Summer Sale! It was one of the last five pieces left towards the end of the sale.  For the life of me, I don’t understand why no one snatched it up when the sale first began. Oh well, I loved it. I also loved the price of the dress ($20)! So, I scooped it up without a second thought.  Even though I purchase it during the Summer, I already knew that it would be perfect to rock during the Fall season.  As you can see above, I styled it with a pair of over-the-knee boots.  However, I will definitely throw on a pair of jeans with it as it gets colder outside.  It’s the definition of simple, yet chic!

A Lesson For The Week: Just Do It

As I continue on this journey of blogging, I learn new lessons every week, and sometimes everyday.  This week the lesson that I learned is “JUST DO IT”.

BC3171D3-6A4F-4FE4-B433-3518CF253822

Growing up, we all heard and saw this phrase on television and advertisements everywhere.  It’s Nike’s slogan. However, only recently has it occurred to me that they were telling us to really “Just do it”!  Like, don’t hesitate! Don’t quit! Don’t waist time!  Don’t let fear stop you!  Just do it!

C16CB389-2303-4F5F-A110-DAF3F03E3449

I applied this mantra this week.  I made the decision that I will do as much as I can do to gain exposure for my blog.  So, an opportunity came to mind immediately.  One of my favorite style websites, Fashion Bomb Daily, does a daily feature of style bloggers who they feel are THE BOMB.  Readers can then rate and comment on the bloggers style (the readers can be quite mean sometimes).  This website gets hundreds of views a day and has over 50,000 followers on Instagram.  This week the feature was dedicated to only Atlanta bloggers.

F0AF0208-2181-4B54-BCCE-D710256EAB9D

Because of the exposure that I could gain, I wanted to submit my information in hopes that they would consider me.  Now, I went back and forth about my submission because I was afraid that I would get rejected.  I was also afraid of those negative comments that I would get from the readers.

D3DBF59A-0629-4AB9-8223-7E3511E36DEF

So, I spoke with one of my close friends about it, and she noted that I had to do it.  There was no good reason not to, other than the fact that they would tell me no.  Heck, I hadn’t even written or submitted anything before I convinced myself that I would be rejected.  That’s no way to think.  I had to do it.

FC98BD67-0900-4CD6-9C93-7A77BD2D956D

I did my write-up, chose my best photos, and emailed my submission to Fashion Bomb Daily.  Two days later, I was on their website as the “Fashion Bombshell of the Day”!!!  And I haven’t gotten any negative comments…yet.

35E916F1-A9A4-49FC-A1DD-04DFAEE9B4EB

I’m so excited y’all, and I’m super proud of myself.  I know this is a small win, and I won’t win all the time.  But, this just goes to show that you should “Just do it”. It won’t hurt to do it (well your feelings may get hurt for a second, but it won’t last).

Opportunities and hurdles will pop up in our lives as long as we’re alive.  We can’t let fear stop us from moving forward and making the most out of this short life we have.  Happy Friday y’all!!!  To read my feature on Fashion Bomb Daily, click here.

5 Reasons Why Bloggers Need a #GirlSquad

I have typically been a girl who is all about doing things on my own and by myself.  But, the more I continue working to make it in this blogging world, the more I learn that I cannot do it alone.  I need help and I need people around me who are trying to do the same thing I’m trying to do: Grow, Learn, and Make an Impact. It just makes the journey a little easier.

F19D931D-945A-49D9-BCB6-D91F0B2FBB8F

This is why I’m so happy to have found my #GirlSquad.  I like to call us “The Isha’s”.  Below, you will see Ayesha (of Emanee’s Closet), myself (Daneisha), and Kisha (of Kisha Rose).  These ladies have been a godsend!!!  I met Ayesha on IG.  We connected because of our love of New York & Company.  I met Kisha at a thrifting event and we instantly connected.  And it’s crazy because these girls already knew each other as well!  So, we decided to have lunch together on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at a taco restaurant.  We literally sat, laughed, and bonded for hours before we had to go our separate ways.  The rest is history!

0F816C64-6055-468D-A4A1-289058400092

We exchange ideas.  We complain.  We laugh.  We turn up.  We bond!  And it all started with our love for fashion and blogging.  Through these ladies, I have learned the importance of having a #GirlSquad in this world of blogging.  Here are 5 reasons you should get yourself a #GirlSquad too!

1. Someone to Attend Events With You

CC78D8A8-26D7-44E2-A165-7802DB6724DE

As bloggers, we learn early how important it is to attend events related to your niche.  So, I try to attend a few events throughout the year so that I can meet other bloggers, photographers, stylists, etc.  I will admit that it’s tough going to these events alone.  Especially, since some people aren’t very “social”.  Having a group of your best girls to call on when it’s time to roll out to these events is the best feeling ever.

2. Someone to Complain to About Blogging Woes

04A0291A-DD6C-4159-A7C7-748DDCBA803D

I always talk about how hard blogging is.  But, I think you have to do it to understand just how tough it is.  And when I complain to these girls about it, they nod their heads in agreement and have plenty to add to the conversation!  They know exactly what I’m talking about.  Plus, they give me solutions to those complaints.

3. Someone to Talk Out New Ideas With

934A208B-72B0-4EA0-B5ED-E4193F200D4F

As I stated earlier, having a #GirlSquad allows you to share and receive all of the knowledge and experiences that you’ve all gained.  So, when I have an idea or if one of my girls has an idea, we share that with each other.  This gives us the chance to think things through and hear the pros and cons of that idea. Of course, it leads to new ideas as well.  Brainstorming with my #GirlSquad helps me to get my creative juices flowing!

4. Someone In Your Corner to Encourage You

D6499DFF-7079-461D-8908-2EDC39621E25

For those moments when you’re doubtful and need that extra push, a #GirlSquad is essential.  Or even when you’re just being lazy, and you need someone to tell you to step it up, having someone in your corner who will be honest with you and not sugarcoat things will prove to be exactly what you need to excel at ANYTHING in life!

5. Someone to Help Celebrate Your Wins

54339C64-5609-46C1-809B-0E7AB68B5EEE

When I tell my mom that a certain brand just “reposted” my photo on their IG, she looks at me like I’m crazy.  She doesn’t get why that is important.  But, if you’re a blogger trying to get as much exposure as possible, you understand.  So, to have girls who not only celebrate your wins, but understand those small wins is a win in itself.  It’s hard to describe how wonderful that is.  Plus, winning and being successful, alone, isn’t much fun.  We all want someone to help us celebrate!

Bonus: Someone to Be Fly With

91C6D45A-3608-4570-A51C-E1899A779B87

Yes, we match each others fly! Anytime we get together, I get excited about the fashions that are about to take place!  I love both of their style!  They never cease to amaze me with the looks they create! My girls!
