Make a Statement in a Floral Shift Dress

Happy Monday! Today I’m featuring this steal from New York & Company!  This beautiful shift dress has a relaxed fit and is still perfect for the office.


I didn’t think that I would love this dress when I first picked it up off the rack but, because it was only $16, I tried it on.


Girl when I put this dress on, I was like “YES”!!! I loved it! It’s a simple shift dress but it’s just so cute.


The floral colors and details are beautiful.  And it’s the perfect length also.  It’s not too long and not too short which is perfect for the office, church, backyard parties, happy hour and everywhere in between.


And let me mention again that it was listed at $16! However, when I got to the register and the sales associate rung it up, it ended up being $10!!!! Yes, girl! TEN DOLLARS!!!


So at that moment, I knew it was meant to be.  I mean a dress this cute for only $10; you can’t beat that!


I went to New York & Company’s website to find it for you and it is now $16.99! This is still a deal though because this dress is gorgeous.


Furthermore, they have it in multiple colors.  So yes you can get more than one.  Or, if you don’t like this black one, you can get it in another color!

Weekend Adventure’s With Officially Chic 2

I can’t believe we’re already at another weekend.  Time sure does fly by.  Well, this past weekend was another busy one for me.  Once again, I was able to do some work and some play. I spent time with family and friends, laughed a lot, and did a little work too.  It was very entertaining to say the least.  I like doing this segment on my blog because it allows me to show you that smiling and having fun is just as important as working hard. I do my best to have a good mix of both.  Lets get out there and enjoy life people!

1. “All Eyes on Me” Movie Outing


So Friday the “Tupac Movie” finally came out.  My sister and I went to Applebee’s for appetizers and drinks and then we headed to the theater.  I don’t really get to hang out with my sis as much as I used to so this was a treat.  We laughed and reminisced the entire time.  I have mixed opinions about the movie, “All Eyez on Me”, but I will say that it was nice reliving those moments in history and learning a few things about Tupac that I didn’t know.  I would still suggest that you check it out just because it’s Pac.

2. Volunteer for Lift Up Atlanta Summer Fun Festival


I’m always trying to spend more time volunteering and helping those in need.  So Saturday morning, I got up early to volunteer for the Lift Up Atlanta Annual Summer Fun Festival.  Lift Up Atlanta is non profit organization that is committed to helping the homeless and feeding the hungry in the metro Atlanta area by providing everything from basic needs to computer training/job skills.

The Summer Fun Festival is an annual event held by Lift Up Atlanta to raise donations and school supplies for needy children.  I always feel great knowing that I’m doing the work to help others.  I really hope that they children received everything that they needed from this event.  I will also be donated supplies for back to school as well.  If you’re interested in helping Lift Up Atlanta, check out their website hyperlinked all throughout this paragraph!

3. Networking with Black Bloggers United


Next I attended the monthly Power Hour event with Black Bloggers United.  There was so much good information exchanged between myself and the other bloggers.  I love networking with like-minded individuals because they always teach you some new things and they inspire you to do more.  We were able to express our frustrations with blogging as well as our love for blogging.  I left feeling very inspired and motivated!  If you’re a blogger looking to connect with other bloggers, check out the Black Bloggers United website!

4. Paparazzi Jewelry Party


Okay so next, I left my networking event and headed to my best friend’s Paparazzi jewelry party.  She had so many great pieces; it was hard to choose which ones to get. But nonetheless, I settled on a nice matching set which I will feature on my blog later.  I hadn’t seen my BFF in a while so after the party, we opened up a bottle of wine and did some catching up! It’s so nice spending time with my girlfriends!  They make life a little easier.

5. Photoshoot for my Blog


Sunday, it was time to shoot a few photos for my blog.  I shot these in downtown Duluth, GA. Because I waited until later in the day to shoot, it was hard to find good lighting outside.  I made it work though.  This is one of my favorite pictures!

Even though we’re at another weekend, I still wanted to share this with you.  I hope you have had a wonderful week and I hope you have an even better weekend!

Casual Friday: Khaki Pants + Bodysuit


Bodysuit ASOS  PantsH&M  Heels – Levity  WristletCoach  ChokerNY & Company

Happy Friday! I posted this look on my Instagram a couple weeks ago but I wanted to feature it on my blog as well.  These pants are amazing!  They’re very loose fitting in the hips which I love and they’re perfect for a “Casual Friday” look.  I just added a few pieces to dress them up.  My Levity heels were purchased a few years ago from DSW.  So they’re not available any more but I linked a pair that I found at Poshmark that are the exact same.  My brown Coach bag is also an old purchase; as well as this choker.  But I added links to where you can find similar pieces.  This was a simple yet cute look.  What do you think of it?

3 Tips for Wearing a Jumpsuit


JumpsuitASOS  HeelsTarget  ClutchMacy’s  WatchNew York & Company

I’ve mentioned on multiple occasions how much I love jumpsuits.  I feel my sexiest in them because they flatter my figure so perfectly.  And they’re like the easiest outfit to put together because there’s just one piece.  Even though they are an easy outfit, you still want to make sure you’re stylish and dressed to the “T” when you put one on.  Here are a few of my tips for looking extra stylish in a jumpsuit:

  1. Make sure the jumpsuit is the right length.  You don’t want to be walking around in a jumpsuit that is too short for your legs or so long that you’re walking over them.  Also, when you’re buying one, take into consideration whether or not you will be wearing heels with it.  This will make a big difference in the length of course.
  2. Accessorize! Accessorize! ACCESSORIZE!  One thing that can turn a simple daytime jumpsuit into an amazing night out outfit, is the accessories.  I’m talking about statement necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and handbags.  Add some accessories to your look to ensure that you take it up a notch.
  3. The perfect pair of heels.  Most times that I wear a jumpsuit, I usually have on a pair of heels with it.  Heels will completely transform your look.  You can always go with a simple pair of heels like the ones I’m wearing in this picture.  But depending on where you’re going in this jumpsuit, you may want to throw on a pair with a little more glam and flair.

I hope these tips will make it a little easier for you to style your jumpsuit.  Do you have any tips to add?  Let me know what you do to step up you jumpsuit style game in the comments below?

Make a Statement in Palazzo Pants


TopNY & Co  PantsNY & Co  BagNY & Co WatchNY & Co  HeelsTarget

These pants are everything and quite similar to this skirt that I wore a few weeks ago (see here).  Palazzo pants are great because they usually have a nice print and they also fit so comfortably.  The only thing is that sometimes it’s hard finding ones that are the right length for my long legs.  These turned out to be the perfect length though!  What I also like about these pants is that they can easily be combined with any blouse for a chic look.  I chose this navy blue mock neck bodysuit which I think was a great match.  What do you think of this look?

Happy Monday! Today I’m featuring this jumpsuit that I purchased from ASOS a few weeks ago! I have a few conferences coming up that I will be attending and this is one of the looks that I plan on wearing.  As business women we’re always attending events where we have to dress up and look nice.  I decided that a nice jumpsuit is the perfect option for these events.  It’s an easy outfit because it’s just one piece so you don’t have to worry about putting together an entire outfit.  All you have to do is find the right heels (which are usually already in your closet) and some cute pieces of jewelry and you’re set!  ASOS is my go-to when I’m looking for a nice, sexy, and sophisticated jumpsuit!  Check out this other one from a previous post (LOVE).  Later on today I will feature a few more of my favorite jumpsuits from ASOS.  Stay tuned!  Don’t you just love this jumpsuit!
