Trend: Over the Knee Boots

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I was intimidated until I tried these boots on. Found them randomly at Marshall’s for $59 (no sales tax in NYC; praise break!) and I am so glad I bought them.

It was cold today, so I had to layer up. I figured by wearing the boots, I would look more put together than just with jeans and a hoodie 😉 it is all about balance and adding your own twist to the items you purchase.

How would you style these boots? I can’t wait to play around more and wear them more often.

Trend: The Pleated Skirt

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

When it comes to style, I am not much of a “girly-girl.” I love things with edge, that display that I don’t play–lol yet I love to throw slight hints of me being delicate and kind. Feminine pieces are great but I love to mix such items with unexpected hints of…ME.

I have seen a lot of my favorite bloggers and magazines displaying the pleated skirt in such lady-like ways that I decided to wear one in slightly two different ways. Of course I am a lady, but I have to express this femininity in my uniqueness.

Pleats and Sneaks

The first way I wore the pleated skirt is with sneakers. (I found this skirt at my local Salvation Army Thrift Store.) I paired it with an old cargo bomber I had traded in at Urban Cheapskate and a white camisole to keep things neutral and airy, since it was hot as ever that afternoon.

I serve at my awesome local church (Transformation Church) in our media department, so being behind the scenes of photography and social media always has me on the move. This means that comfort, especially on my feet, matters. I tried the outfit on to make sure I did not look like a complete mess the previous night, even though 95% of the time I do not ever plan my outfits (I just wing them). Needless to day, I really enjoyed this look and plan on wearing my sneakers with another thrifted skirt I got for colder days. 😉

Pleats and Studs

The second way I wore this skirt, in which I think is my favorite, is with my studded heels. I purchased these online at Forever21, and yes they are heavy and can be uncomfortable after wearing them over 5 hours BUT cmon, they are dope!

Can we talk about slayage? LOL. Lowkey when I saw these pictures, I took a second look because my hair was unplanned, I was sweating, and my feet were throbbing after such a long day. Shoutout to my beautiful photographer that happens to be one of my best friends, Ryanne G.

Los 70s | Fall Trend 2015

Fall is around the corner but the 70s are even closer. This trend has gotten stronger and stronger in the last months, meaning I finally caved into trying it. Here is my modern take on what this seventies fashion revival looks like 🙂

I have to admit, I did not really think I would like this trend because I do not like bell bottoms. They look terrible on me, since I am shorter than the average woman and curvy–so the flared effect would make me look even shorter. OR maybe I am exaggerating and need to try some on soon. lol

 Can I also share my excitement on how long my hair has progressed over the years!?! YESSSS! In college, my hair was fried and just below my shoulder. But now it is healthy and down to my waist! Hallelujah!

I hope you all are as stoked as I am about this fall and winter season. I will be posting more outfits of the day, devotionals, and even feature some people who are rising in Tulsa’s Fashion Industry!
