So I’n sure everybody is familiar with POP and Donna Goudeau. Well Anthony Hamilton decided to do a wonderful melody of the song! Not only is the song catchy but I couldn’t take my eyes off of Anthony’s top half! I was inspired to put this outfit together and sang “Ohhh Mama I love you.”

The Deets:
Head wrap: local Beauty Supply Store Scarf. ( I think it was a 1.00 I bought it in 2009)
Blazer: Local Thrift Store: .50 Talbot’s kid brand
Shirt: Goodwill: .50 Not sure of the brand ( I cut the lace collar off. People thought that I was lying when I told them it was a “grandma shirt”)
Shorts: Goodys : 9.99 Not sure of the brand
Shoes: TJ Maxx: 29.99 Report brand

So my sister had her baby shower at her old job, Wild Wings, on a Sunday. My outfit choice was last minute. I saw the shirt that I had thrifted and my black shorts just hanging around so I felt it was destined to be paired together. The blazer was just my signature touch.

What To Wear To A Surprise Party

parent family fashion, What She Wore/ OOTD

So my best friend Lauren is having a party Saturday. I can’t say where because she reads this blog but I can tell you she’s having a party. ( she knows this but doesn’t know where)

I’m stumped on what to wear! I have a few outfits in mind but I honestly don’t know!

Here’s some things I do know:

1.) I don’t want to be off beat with the place and atmosphere. By this I mean I don’t want to be over nor under dressed.
2.) I want to wear flats. I hate partying in heels! My feet hurts really easily these days so heels are out for this event.
3.) I want to be comfortable. Nothing too loose but nothing too tight.

Here some of the pieces I’m thinking of. Some I actually own already.


I’m also on this gladiator high! Ask anybody who knows me and they will tell you I’m the gladiator queen! I love those shoes! With the thigh high being all the rave, I want to incorporate a pair into my outfit Saturday. My problem is will I be able to find a pair before Saturday???

I’m loving these but I know there’s no way I will have them by Saturday ( but I will be purchasing them!)


These are perfect! They are the Haus Von Lila Dogma inspired sandal! I love them. These babies will give me the sex appeal that I crave without the pain I don’t need.

Well what would you guys suggest? I’m going to Instagram and my other social media outlets for feedback.

So I’m totally late with this post but it’s my ootd from Independence Day! I was going to style the Lauren James “shorties” featured in my ” First Look” but I ended up straying away from the whole “red, white and blue” theme. I went to a Independence Fun Day style cookout hosted by my friend Lauren. ( photos will be included below) I met some great people and I’m now a card trick master.

So what did you guys do for the holiday? What did you all wear? I hope it was a safe and fun one.
