Happy Fat Tuesday!
I think I’ve mentioned this before, and pardon me if I have—outwear is my favorite thing about winter. I like having options for keeping warm when the weather permits. So far, I’ve needed every piece of outerwear (and then some), for this F/W.
I love bombers. I own several, with all being different from the next. My newest addition happens to be extremely masculine; it’s associated with a daily mantra one should never forget: You will NEVER LOSE.
Founder and creator, Lemuel Okogbodu, is making strides with his custom-made pieces for both men and women. We spoke briefly about NVRLSE, and this is what he had to say:
Never Lose is a brand that aims to encourage the success of the individual. We believe in the narrative of the winner. This does not mean one will never stumble and fall. It is simply a reminder that when it’s all said and done, you will NEVER LOSE.
It’s so inspiring to be connected to individuals who are in tune with the betterment of not only themselves, but of other people!

I’m obsessed with mules. Growing up, I remember both my mom and grandma wearing them. I thought they were the ugliest shoes on the planet. Now, I can’t get enough of the peculiar-looking shoe. They were definitely a thing last year and this year, too. I had a pair that I swore by, but unfortunately I had to give them up for obvious reasons, like wear and tear. Luckily, I had another pair that I held onto that were practically new.
I’ve teamed up with Tobi to give you inspiration for you to remix as your own. A pair of perfectly tailored trousers + an asymmetrical tank = an ideal ensemble for a mild, fall day! 🍂
What are your thoughts on mules? How do you like to pair them?

Fall is here. *Inserts excitement*
Summer came for a day, packed it’s bags, and left. Fortunately, it left its temps behind. If you know Texas’ weather, you know we won’t experience the cooler temps until mid November. I find that to be a good thing, because you can still get away with wearing certain pieces that are deemed for summer only. Since mid-August, I’ve purchased pieces here and there from my Fall musthaves list (I’ll share with you all later on this month). Nonetheless, one of the items on the list is a fringe skirt. During one of my pinning sessions via Pinterest, I spotted inspiration with exactly what I had in mind. Having said that, I’ve joined forces with Tobi to bring you inspiration that you too can recreate for fall/winter, without breaking the bank!
What piece(s) are you coveting for fall/winter 16?

It really is a happy Tuesday, because it’s TACO TUESDAY!
Let’s talk rompers. I believe rompers are a summer staple. Like jumpsuits, they’re easy to style. With temps being synonymous with fish grease, I really don’t want to take up too much time trying to find something to wear. It’s just too hot!
Not only was it boiling hot on Saturday, it was humid. I swear, the humidity we experienced this past weekend was greater than the humidity you experience in Houston.
Luckily, I didn’t suffer too much, all thanks to light dressing of the Just Like Me Cut-Out Romper. If you glance from afar, it appears that I’m wearing an extremely short dress, but if you look closer, you’ll notice that the shorts are wide-leg. The sweetheart neckline, and the front cut-out is what sold me! To wing myself off wearing darker colors, I opted for gray. 😊
