OC Challenge – Day 1 – Rocker Chic

Day 1 of the 10 x 10 x 10 Officially Chic Challenge brings you this chic rock star look!!!  The hero piece in this look is definitely the black leather jacket.  The black leather jacket is a classic staple piece that everyone should have in their wardrobe.  It can be used to add a casual vibe to a dressed up look, and it can be used to elevate a look.  The outfit that I’m wearing today is a very good example of how the black leather jacket elevated my t-shirt and jeans combo.  I added my rock-stud cross body bag for that rocker chic vibe, and threw on a pop of red (lipstick).

Back to the Basics: 10 Basics + 10 Outfits + 10 Days

Good Morning! So, I’ve been overdoing it with my shopping habits lately.  And with the holidays coming up (and Elijah’s birthday), I’m focusing my shopping on others.  Therefore, I’m taking a short break from personal shopping and I’m going to do a better job of dressing the items that are already in my closet.

This led me to an idea…Why not create a cute capsule wardrobe?!?!  I’ve seen so many amazing bloggers create these capsule wardrobes and come up with some great outfits.  So, I decided to give it a try.  I went to the “authority” on capsule wardrobes, Caroline Rector of Unfancy.  She has done many capsule collection challenges, so I wanted to make sure that I got it right through her guidance (her blog).  This led me to try out the 10 x 10 Fall Wardrobe Challenge.  What is this concept?  Well, you choose ten versatile basics from your closet, and create ten outfits that you will wear for the next ten days.

So, yes I will be doing something different with my blog for the next few days. I’m going back to the basics.  And of course, I had to take you along for the journey.  This will be a learning experience for all of us!!!  See all of the pieces that I will be including in my capsule wardrobe below:

1. Plain White T-Shirt, H&M, $12.99

Basic White Tee

2. Classic Leather Jacket, H&M, $49.99

Black Leather Moto Jacket

3. Dark-Wash Jeans, H&M, $24.99

Basic Blue Jeans

4. Black Heeled Boots, Steve Madden, $99.99

Black Boots

5. Leopard Print Blouse, H&M, $14.99

Leopard Print Top

6. Black Turtleneck, H&M, $17.99

Black Turtleneck

7. Camel Coat/Cardigan, H&M, $79.99

Camel Coat

8. Black Jeans/Pants, H&M, $19.99

Basic Black Skinny Jeans

9. Plaid Blazer, H&M, $34.99

blazer

10. Black Midi Dress, H&M, $49.99

Black Midi Dress

If you would like to join in on the challenge, comment below!!! Let me know your thoughts and advice (if you have any).  And check back for the next few days to see what looks I come up with from these 10 pieces!!!

Speak to you soon!

JORD Wood Watches: A Watch for Everyone

When JORD (pronounced Yode) offered to send me one of their wooden watches to try out and review, I was excited.  I was already pretty familiar with the brand and I knew that their watches were beautiful.

7BC30BAC-A285-464B-A39A-0B4BFC409F14

If you don’t know JORD, they design creative and unique wooden watches that are widely appealing to everyone’s style; which is why I jumped at the chance to try out their watches.

1681670C-B9AA-46FE-BDD5-DBC5C2301485

So, I went to their website to choose one that I thought would fit my personal style.   Now, y’all already know that my personal style consists of simple, minimal, sleek, and chic pieces.  It only makes sense that I would look for those same qualities in my timepiece.  I wanted a piece that I could wear every day and with about ninety percent of the items in my closet.

FB86C05B-9C0A-4C53-B09F-3596AA083AC6

I perused JORD’s amazing collection of watches and found so many that I loved.  There were thick bands, thin bands, square faces, rectangular faces, and multiple colors. You can imagine that it was very hard to narrow it down to just one.  Well, as you can see, I chose one that was very befitting!

F6201862-E246-4889-BABC-5B42BABDAD68

My package came quickly! I opened it to find a beautiful cedar box that contained an even more beautiful watch, as well as a cleaning cloth, and a 6 month supply of JORD Preserve: a custom-formulated wood treatment gel with applicator pen.  JORD does not skimp on presentation.

8054D30A-D1F8-426D-B6CC-D0FD4792F8CF

The watch that I’m wearing is from the Cassia Series.  The Cassia Series gave me that exact luxurious, minimal, and classic look that I was searching for.  There were four options to choose from in this series.  And me being me, I chose the black (Ebony and Sable) version.  Can I just say that I absolutely love this watch!

DAC779BF-1717-4875-8693-E6E649B60627

It’s very feminine and it fits my wrist perfectly.  And because it’s black and extremely versatile, I’ve paired it with every outfit I’ve worn this week!

C686C7E0-928D-4975-879D-3BA24CDD2F85

Now, let’s just talk about some of the features of this piece.  As far as durability is concerned, I can tell by the thickness and amazing craftsmanship that this piece will definitely stand the test of time.  And though I don’t swim in jewelry or accessories, I must note that this watch is not waterproof. So, please beware. Another great feature that I noticed is that there is no ticking sound to annoy the heck out of you.  It’s a quiet piece.

316EFB47-D8D7-4CBB-B464-890E1585744D

This watch can be styled with most casual, everyday looks which is why I love it.  No, I wouldn’t wear it to a gala. Yes, I have worn and will wear it to work with my favorite pair of jeans and cozy sweater to create the perfect Fall outfit.

Trend Alert: The Scarf Print Blouse

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but lately I’ve been mixing a lot more trendy pieces into my wardrobe.  I never steer too far away from my comfort zone that is simple, minimal, sleek, and chic.  But, I’m really just having fun with my personal style and trying some new things.

BCE67870-2BB1-46FD-B6B3-B8D566598ED6

So, when a new trend emerges, and I actually like the trend, I try to see how I can incorporate that trend into my own personal style.  It usually works out because I keep my outfits as basic as possible; which is what I did with this trendy blouse from Zara.

D2A705EA-EFA5-4EC8-B50E-B13707D1DD6F

With all of the animal print that we’ve been seeing lately, you probably haven’t noticed the scarf print trend.

A3286338-6346-4AC1-BA87-3BD1324ADFCE

Well, that’s why I’m here; to keep you updated on the “new-new”!  The silky scarves have always been reserved for our necks, heads, or even bags.  But, now the “powers that be” of fashion have decided that we need scarves all over our entire bodies with the help of scarf print dresses, pants, and tops.  And to be honest, I’m not mad about it.

DC2A10CF-C3C5-4214-96E7-228BDF3807A2

Scarf print tops, particularly the ones that drape your body, are very forgiving.  And y’all know I talk about my “mom pudge” all the time.  So, I will always reach for pieces that distract from my mid-section.

764FE774-4561-4C0A-A9F2-6B5E05FEE35F

Another reason I’m feeling this trend is because it looks very chic and expensive, yet there are a few stores like Zara, Forever 21, and ASOS that have them for great prices.

And finally, I love this trend because the styling options are endless. Of course, I’m rocking this silky scarf print top.  But, this print is available in dresses, pants, headbands, skirts, etc.  So, I’m here to tell you that you should definitely try it out!  Have I convinced you lol?!?! If so, let me know in the comments below!

Thank you for stopping by!  Speak to you soon!

This Sweater Dress is a Fall Staple

5BB54EE9-C881-46C5-A2D9-16EE970B7FFD996A7A5C-CDF8-4E71-8B13-D46B466C1E1C85895E44-94F7-4C1E-9DA3-D72B01D0668C907454E8-C71A-4814-8F41-9A1843B9F2A03674963F-F501-4C3C-A5FB-0F4E58F239898CE87137-03BC-4968-9668-DDD5D5C8B1822839F80B-4601-49B9-AED4-96A06F79E2FA3973310C-99BF-4740-8671-7A78D9F2074B

I had to share this dress with you since it was such a hit on my Instagram.  Sweater dresses are a Fall staple for sure, and this one is perfect!  It’s this orange/rust color that is very trendy right now.  Plus, it fits like a glove while also smoothing out my imperfections.  I loved it as soon as I saw it.  Everyone has been asking me where I got it from; I purchased it in-store out of God and Goals Boutique.  They don’t have an online store right now.  However, I was able to find the link to a dress that’s pretty much a dupe of the one I’m wearing.  And it’s a third of the price.  Clink the link above to purchase this beauty!  I’m wearing a size Small.  Also, look out for my next post later today where I will link more sweater dresses that I’m loving right now!
