Let me just say the chill is starting to set in these Fresno neck  of the woods. I still find some ways to have my legs and get as much sunshine as I possibly can. I hope your week is off to an amazing start. As for me well you know. My mission is to leave my fingerprint on the world. If you are thinking of ways to leave your fingerprint always remember to be Fearless, Brave and Phenomenal. I am a firm believer of slaying what you already have and take it to the next level. Fashion is not about brands it about the style you present to the world. Let’s break this down shall we.

I told myself what if I took all the love that I give to everyone else and give myself the same effort what would happen. This should be easy right ? To be honest it started out really hard to do . It was hard because it forced me to be vulnerable, forgiving and patient with myself .

The love I want to give myself is going to require some real hard work and I was ready to put In the work. The more I started to pour into myself the more it started out pour into the world which started to make my skin glow. I was finding me , most importantly I was loving me the same way I would love everyone around me. I want to show you how to slay anything at any given time . Whatever you put on no matter what always own the room .

So, the outfit I have on is thrifted. Yes, my who outfit cost 26.56, Yes that includes my shoes which I got my Target. LET’S BREAK THIS DOWN SHALL WE.

SHIRT

Now me and white are not best friends and never on the same page, with that said I try to avoid it at all cost.  This shirt was a love at first sight so I could not leave it behind. I got this shirt from Team Amvest which is a local thrift store in Fresno.  This shirt is from Rock & Republic and I got it for 5.95, a steal, right? It is a classic white and black sleeveless blouse great for any occasion and it has a black collar with studs on it. It’s also has a long tail but I tucked it in for this look.

PANTS

Now you know I love to live in color and mixing prints is in my DNA. I decided to wear printed draw string pants by Rewind that I got thrifted for 3.95 cents. Yes 3.95 cents , I love the details on these pants they also have the cargo style at the bottom and they feel great.

SHOES

Now everyone should own a pair of cream heels. I got these baby’s from Target for 10.87cents. The shoes are Massimo style Kylea in the color Tarped. If you love Target just as much as I do, you know that orange tag is everything. For the most part they are comfortable, but not made for long walking well at least not for me lol.

JACKET

When I think about Pink two things comes to my mind. First it is fierce as hell and number two it is the new black . This pink pea coat is everything. I got this jacket while thrifting, the coat is by Philippe Adec which I got for 5.79 cents. Just like my favorite Green Blazer, I had to hurry and get it to the car because that was an amazing #SHEEFIND. I also added my royal blue bag which was the cherry on top, which I got from Forever21. So, my exact total for my outfit is 26.56 …  Fabulous, right? Always remember fashion is temporary style is forever.

IMG_0258 (1).jpg

Who does not love a nice blazer? Can I share a secret with you? yes you. Guess how much I paid for this blazer? ok since you are twisting my hand three dollars and 25 cents. GIRL… That’s what I said ,as I hurried up and took it to my car before someone would notice. This was one of my fabulous finds while As the temperature  begins to settle in I wanted to show you 3 ways to wear a green blazer for any occasion.

.

1.       Pair it with a skirt

More fringe please…. I love this color combo. Because I  live in color I always look for ways to mix textures and prints  which takes the outfit to the next level . I decided to wear an all-black mesh top that I got from forever 21 and paired it with a burnt orange fringe skirt. Once I added the green blazer it took it to the next level . Because it still warm in  Fresno  I knew my favorite platform would tie it all together. I got my shoes from target also on sale .

Pair it with some slacks

Who said business casual could not be fabulous . I wanted the blazer to speak for itself . So, I paired it with my mesh top and added some black slacks which was also thrifted from the Goodwill. I believe I paid two dollars for them . I added some black heals . This allowed me Live in color even in a professional setting .

     Pair it with Jeans

Who doesn’t love some hot grey jeans. I really loved this combination. This was my first time wearing it together . To be honest I do not know why. There is something about black, green and grey. I decided to add some rips to my jeans to take them to the next level . I absolutely   love the way it came out . I wore my black mesh top , grey jeans and the green blazer sealed the deal . The heels gave it that edge .
