Eva Mendes Collection Polka Dot Jumpsuit

10D1B32A-594D-46AE-A208-6FADA3954209

Y’all already know that I love a good jumpsuit.  So when I tried this one on a few weeks ago, I knew I had to have it.  It’s from the exclusive Eva Mendes Collection at New York and Company.

This lovely jumpsuit is the perfect outfit to wear to work on my more casual days and even for a night out with the girls.  I wore it to work Monday and received compliments the entire day.  It was definitely a hit!

I love the wide leg of the pants too and the cinch at the waist that the drawstring gives.  It gave me that hourglass shape while also concealing my flaws (the pudge).

My favorite thing about this jumpsuit is the length though.  I think New York & Company is finally considering us tall girls when it comes to their jumpsuits and palazzo pants because the length on this jumpsuit is perfection!

I also have a new bag that I will be carrying a lot this summer.  It’s very similar to the Louis Vuitton Epi Monceau BB but a lot less expensive.  The clean lines and structure gives it a classic, everyday chic look that I love.  Plus, it also has a crossbody strap that I can wear if I don’t want to carry it using the top handle.  The bag is from another one of my favorite shops, Target!!! It’s a part of the A New Day™ brand.

I just love an easy breezy look!!! And this jumpsuit is just that.  With Spring finally getting here, I think we’re all excited about the fun and flowy pieces that we get to wear during this time of the year.  Now we just have to get past the cold weather!  Thanks for visiting with me today.  I hope you have an amazing day!

Target’s A New Day Floral Blazer

0C3FE78B-A33A-4EEE-9706-2DCCE415A4C5

Spring is here which means plenty of pastels and floral prints.  I’m totally into both this year so I’ve been picking up a lot of powder pink and floral pieces; like this blazer, this clutch, and my heels in both of these looks I’m rocking today.

One of my new rules for shopping is that whatever piece I buy, I must be able to wear it multiple ways and multiple times.  I’m talking versatility y’all!  And this floral blazer is just that.  So, today I will be showing you a couple ways that I styled it.

The thing that I love about both looks is that each can be worn to the office.  One is a little dressy, while the other gives a nice casual, yet dressed up look.

Monday’s Office Look

This floral blazer is from the A New Day™ brand at Target.  This brand has not disappointed me yet and this season, I’m loving all the fun, bright colors in their collection.

The matchy, matchy look of this blazer and  floral cropped pant is so on trend right now.  The bright and vibrant flowers in the pieces set against a rich navy background is so fresh and will definitely get you noticed (if that’s what you’re going for).

I love the matching set because it make for a quick and easy morning when I’m getting dressed for work.  It’s an office-friendly look that I will be sporting during the weekend as well! Win, Win for me!

Friday’s Office Look

I also paired this blazer with a pair of jeans and a button down shirt for a casual day at the office.  It made for the perfect polished outfit that could be worn straight from the office – to date night or dinner with friends.

The great thing about blazers will always be their versatility.  So, if ever you’re trying to decide on a staple piece to add to your closet that you will get the most wear out of, you will never lose when you choose to purchase a blazer.

What are some other Spring pieces that you’re dying to add to your wardrobe?  Let me know in the comments below!

The Perfect Spring Pants + Catch Up

4FBE01D0-282E-46B9-9328-00EBA0667FB9

Let’s Catch Up

Hello, my Officially Chic Family!!! I know it’s been awhile since I last posted on here but I’m back and better than ever. The last couple of months have been very good to me, and I’m here to tell you all about it.

Well, if you guys go back to my January posts, then you know that I talked about my multiple goals for the year 2018.  One of the top goals on my list was and is paying off a large portion of my debt.  I was very serious about this goal and extremely determined to stay on track.  So, I dove deep into getting it accomplished.  I started doing some part-time work (driving Uber), created a real budget, and came up with a detailed plan of how this debt payoff would go down.  I even completed a month-long financial detox during the month of January.

321701B3-E282-4FCE-B73D-7FA3BA80EE66

The Financial Detox

The financial detox required me to give up any unnecessary spending.  Unnecessary spending included clothes shopping, eating out, any form of entertainment that cost, etc.  Basically, I could only spend money on groceries, gas, housing, and bills.  Though the detox was hard in some areas, for the most part, I enjoyed it.  It made my life very simple during that month.

Developing New Habits

After spending an entire month on a very restricted budget, it was hard going back to shopping as recklessly as I once had.  I decided that there were certain aspects of the financial detox that I would continue to adopt.  So, for most of February, I continued with some of the new habits I had developed in January.

Blogging Took a Back Seat

To be honest, I became so wrapped up in the process that I couldn’t focus on anything but becoming DEBT FREE!!!  And because I was working nonstop, along with taking care of my child, I didn’t really have time to do anything else, including blogging.  Plus, I hadn’t figured out a way to continue as a style blogger, who mostly blogs about shopping, and stay on the fast track to becoming debt free.  The two concepts (style blogger and debt free) just didn’t go together.  This is why I decided to take a break from blogging.  I needed to figure out how I would continue as a blogger and still accomplish a very important goal of mine.

What I Learned During My Hiatus

During my break, I did a lot of reading and reflecting. And I came to the realization that I can do both.  I can be a style blogger without going shopping every weekend.  And I can continue being smart with my money.  Style is not about new and expensive clothes, it’s about expressing the best version of yourself with what you have at that moment.  Don’t get me wrong, shopping is a passion of mine.  It’s second nature for me to just buy stuff.  But, my point is that it is not necessary to continuously buy new clothes every other day to be considered fashionable.  It’s actually very irresponsible.  I have bigger goals and I can’t mess them up by being irresponsible with my money.  So, I’ve decided that I must be smarter and more mature about my spending.  This will be reflected on my blog, of course.

What You Can Expect from Officially Chic

I will continue to take you on my journey as I grow into my best self.  You will notice more posts about shopping on a budget.  I think most of us want to be our best and look our best, but sometimes our budget doesn’t call for us to take a shopping trip every other week.  And if we can afford that shopping trip, we still need to get the most for our money.  I want to ensure that I  am doing that and I want to show you how to do just that.

So expect more talk about finances, budgeting, shopping, and motherhood.  Because that’s what my life is all about right now!!!!  I’m so happy to be back.  And I’m very thankful that you all have stuck around with me on this journey of mine!!!

Speak to you soon!

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.

108CC604-5338-4A0F-9AB3-ED56B236386D

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.

C5C6FB2B-2F8B-4076-8996-6AAFA9ED8C41

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.

BB88E10E-4A36-4E44-85DA-882A4C4DF5F9

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.

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.
