Trend Alert: The Updated Fanny Pack

Back in the 80’s and 90’s, there was this big trend called the fanny pack.  It was mostly worn by moms who didn’t have the luxury of carrying around a big bag while they were out and about looking after their little ones.  It was considered “old-fashioned” from what I remember.  But, as a mom living in the 21st century, I can see the convenience of having one nowadays.

Today, fanny packs are popping back up on a lot of runways and style blogs.  Only, this time around, they’re very sleek and extremely fashionable.  My favorite ones are of faux leather material with gold hardware.

Initially, I wasn’t drawn to the trend.  But, when I saw this little bag at Zara, I thought why not give it a try.  The fanny pack that I’m wearing is very simple, so it fit’s very well with my personal style.

Though, I bought this one a while ago, and I loved it, I still couldn’t figure out how to style it.  I tried it many ways, but what worked was just keeping it very simple.  Simplicity always works!

I found a few more that I love (10 to be exact).  Some are very simple, others have a little more detail to them.  But, they’re all very lovely!!!  Check them out below!

My Winter Uniform for 2018

Happy Monday!!! And Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!!! Currently trying to keep warm in this 30 degree weather here in Atlanta.  Thick sweaters are a must-have around this time of the year, and I have been stocking up on them.  They’re the perfect style staple along with a great pair of jeans and boots.  I try to add a couple layers under my sweater to keep warm as well.  As you can see in this post, I have a few of these oversized-sweaters in multiple colors.  So, this look will be my winter uniform for the rest of the season.

I love the mint green color of this sweater, as well as it’s cropped style.  I tucked it in a little because for some reason, it’s just more flattering that way.  And I finished off my winter uniform with my favorite over-the-knee boots.  Legs for days, I tell ya!!! What’s your winter uniform for the season?!?!

My $17 Little Black Dress From ASOS

Today I’m wearing a double split maxi dress from one of my favorite online stores, ASOS. The little black dress is always a win in my book. And in this case, this little black dress is only $17. Need I say more? Most of us love black dresses because they’re simple, versatile, and they also make a statement. They can be worn with multiple accessories or minimal accessories as I have done today.

I’ve already spoken about my love of all things patent leather right now; So, of course I had to throw on my patent leather booties and my black patent leather bag from JustFab.  I’ve had this bag for years and it’s a best seller on the JustFab and Shoedazzle website!  Plus, it comes in multiple colors!

Also, y’all know I have your back; So, I have to let y’all know about the big sale that’s happening at ASOS.  Items are up to 70% off.  I hope the sale is still going on when I’m done with my financial detox.

My Favorite Combination: Black + Plaid

I think it’s safe to say that I love black.  I mean, it’s the color that makes me feel the most comfortable, the sexiest, and the most stylish.  If ever I have no idea what to wear to an event or any other occasion, I go with black because I know without a doubt, I’m going to look great in it.

F536987C-6495-48EA-9B9B-7B980FDAE732

Recently, I’ve gained a new love for another big trend: Plaid. Or check print, as some may call it.  I think it stems from that blazer that I purchased from Target a few months ago.  Since then, every time I see plaid pieces, whether it’s a pair of pants, a pair of shorts, or a coat, I want it.

469002F5-540E-419B-B3F4-F3AE17B51DC8

In my opinion, plaid makes an outfit look just a little more put together and sophisticated.  I’ve worn it to the office with a pair of dress pants, and also with a pair jeans!  And both ways have looked equally chic.

6B154D0C-9706-45DB-BA12-011E28B05205

As you can see here, I found this adorable cropped romper in that exact print.  I actually purchased this romper during the summer.  But, I didn’t like how the top portion of the romper fit.  So I just tossed it in the back of my closet.

38E2167C-B10C-4762-9648-7B83E6FB791EBut, I pulled it out the other day and decided to add this black long sleeved bodysuit (my black turtleneck would have worked better though) and these black Steve Madden booties.  Now, it’s more winter appropriate.

Lastly, I threw on this bag from Pocketbok Envy (Use discount code CHIC for 15% off your purchase).  It was the perfect added touch to this look!  So, yes my new favorite outfit combination is black and plaid.

10 Essentials To Elevate Your 2018 Looks

I know that I shouldn’t even be mentioning 2017 anymore since we’ve started a new year.  But, after checking out some of my posts from last year, I realized that there were certain pieces of which I could not get enough. Because I shop way too much, my closet is full of clothes, shoes, and bags.  However, if I’m being honest, I usually reach for the same pieces in my closet over and over again.  They’re my faves!!!  And for the most part, none of these pieces were expensive purchases.  I decided to do this post as a guide to closet essentials that I purchased in 2017 that didn’t break the bank.  Hopefully, this will give you some ideas of what to add to your closet in 2018 to up your style game!!!

Black Block Heel Sandals – Target

C75D5174-C0F1-4EF6-9704-24AF3542FA14

The black single heel sandal is a classic.   And as you can see, it can be dressed up or down.  I lived in these sandals this year; especially during the summer.  They were only $29.99 when I purchased them, but they’re now on clearance for $25.48!!!

Plaid Boyfriend Blazer – Target

34EEF007-3169-4C98-88ED-E23EF832400E

Another classic piece that I will be wearing year after year (if possible)!  This blazer is perfect for the office and easy to style with a pair of jeans.  And the quality is amazing!  It’s also on clearance at Target right now!

Black Handbag – H&M

F367553A-B411-4AE2-8D4C-452927E5FBFE

I discovered this bag on Youtube while watching one of my favorite bloggers do a clothing haul.  I knew I had to have it!  She was right when she said that the structure is so nice and mature.  It’s very well made and It’s currently $29.99!  It’s SOLD OUT online, but I’ve seen plenty more of these in the H&M store!

Black Jersey Turtleneck – H&M

F79EDD3A-FB03-4C7B-BEAD-893E15430B65

The turtleneck can be both a fashion statement and a wardrobe hero.  And as you can see, it was both for me!!!! You can’t go wrong with a black turtleneck and a tan one as well!

Mini Satchel Bag – New York & Company

827529EE-8C10-441C-82F7-0EEA469368E5

I loved this Gramercy Mini Satchel bag so much that I bought it in three colors (I also have it in navy blue)!  It’s the perfect little accessory to complement a bold look; big enough to fit all of my essentials, but small enough to carry and not be a burden.

Girlfriend Denim Jeans – Banana Republic

DDE1A920-360C-4CDE-9DC1-C553F61B3FC5

Y’all know I love my skinny jeans for sure.  But, it’s nice to have a pair that fit a little looser.  The fit of these jeans is perfection.  And not only do they fit good, they feel good too!

Black Skinny Jeans – H&M

432FB657-09CE-4B39-B670-E0DD370E46EB

Another great piece that goes so well from day to night.  I’ve worn these jeans over and over again.  They’ve managed to keep their shape despite being on repeat.  I think it’s safe to say, I won with these!

Over-The-Knee Boots – Macy’s

F9A95587-A1BF-497E-8433-89D2C08C95ED

My tip for over-the-knee boots is to let the boots do the talking and keep the rest of your look very modest and simple.  That’s how I do it, at least.  I try to be mostly covered up when I wear these boots.  It creates a chic, sophisticated, and slightly edgy look.

Pitch Black Sunglasses – Old Navy

5BE862D6-79E6-4559-AD5D-E2FEA27DBE6C

I discovered these sunglasses on another one of my favorite bloggers’ website Girl With Curves.  They’re the perfect dupe for the Celine Audrey sunglasses, only I paid less the $2.00 for them!  They’re currently $10.00 on the Old Navy website.  That’s still a great price!

Red Lipstick – Sephora

C190AE5E-4774-4FFD-8D30-AC8C2BB217E8

I have loads of red lipsticks, lipstains, liquid lipsticks, etc.  But the one that I wore the most in 2017 was the Sephora Lipstain Liquid Lipstick – Always Red.  This lipstain is the perfect bold red tone and it applies smoothly!!! There is also no need for me to reapply throughout the day because its very long lasting.

There are a lot more items that could be added to this list, but I’ll save them for another day. I hope this list was helpful for you!!! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!!!

A Super Stylish Way to Rock a Camo Jacket

Y’all I’ve had this camouflage jacket for about three or four years now.  I usually throw it on with a T-shirt and some leggings on a casual day to go run errands.  I barely ever consider it to be a stylish piece. But after checking out one of my favorite bloggers’ website (Girl With Curves), and seeing how she dressed up her green utility jacket, I decided to give it a try myself.  All it really took was my black turtleneck and this black waist belt to add some “chicness” to this look. And, of course, a cute pair of high heel booties and the perfect structured bag.  Lastly, I threw on my favorite sunglasses from Old Navy! Good to go!!!

It’s amazing how sometimes I have to think long and hard about how I’m going to put an outfit together.  I have to decide on the perfect bag, the right shoes, the prettiest jewelry, etc.  Other times, I can throw an outfit together without even thinking twice about it.  This was one of those instances.  It’s chic, casual, and totally me!!!

The Perfect Accessory for a Chic Look

281267A0-DB30-47AA-8822-3AC9ECC42B70

2018 is here and it is freezing in Atlanta!  This makes it very hard to be stylish and warm at the same time.  As a matter of fact, most of the time, I’m not even thinking about style because I’m just trying to stay warm.  I’ve pretty much resorted to oversized sweaters, skinny jeans, and cute boots to accomplish both goals (style and warmth).  In addition to that, I try to incorporate cute accessories (because most of us know that accessories are what sometimes make an outfit).

AA7469F6-20A7-4B26-BE04-8B28BE64F14D

Which brings me to this lovely crossbody that was sent to me by the Pocketbook Envy team. I love this “Jewel” bag because its very similar to the Chanel Boy Chanel handbag without the hefty price tag.  Normally, crossbody bags tend to be very small and compact, but this bag is the total opposite.  It’s perfect and spacious.  I can fit many of my  important items in it, as well as my extras such as my lipstick, small notebook, cell phone, hand sanitizer, lotion, etc.

DDD0C37A-ABC7-4C1D-B42E-DFA2E7F5F5CA

I’ve seen this type of bag styled by many bloggers and celebrities. So,  I knew exactly how I would style it when I received it. Today, I’m wearing this cute grey H&M sweater, my favorite black H&M skinny jeans, and my Jessica Simpson patent leather booties.

5D71B8AD-787F-4DBA-8C19-AD6DCD401CBF

I wanted something to add to the simplicity of this outfit but still give it a bit of “chicness”.  So I added this crossbody.  I’m a simple girl and I love simple pieces.  Another reason I love this bag.

8F715BBE-5442-420F-9C16-0E7AE93CEE3B

It’s the perfect price (less than $50) and I will be styling it with many pieces in my closet.
