Hey, I hope you all have been having a great week so far. Yes? Awesome! No? It’s okay, there, there…It’s Wednesday, the second most exciting day of the week. Why? Because it is a reminder that you are two days closer to the most exciting day of the week, Friday. Okay, okay, now, on to the fun stuff. If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know but for those of you who haven’t yet…I have been holding my tongue for a long, long time before I could tell you all that I am one of the #MirinaGirls. Rachel from Mirina Collections reached out to me about joining their brand ambassador program— and the rest is history…
I’ve always had a liking to the black and white television shows, and old Hollywood glam which is what inspired this ‘coming home’ look. This past weekend, I was returning from a mini-vacation in Florida and was not sure if I should have worn a life jacket, a parka or both with the supposed weather that New York had been having [::Clears throat:: Thunderstorms,(plural) really?]
Taking a modern spin on Hollywood glam, I chose to go for stripes and other shapes while keeping the black and white theme.
Have you ever had an outfit or even article of clothing that you have not worn because you just were not sure where or when you could wear it? If your answer is yes, then, just know that you are not alone. I have had this skirt for more than two years just sitting in my drawer for a ‘special’ event. Honestly, I believe that subconsciously I held onto it until I found something that would complement it. Then, I came across this sweater from A’gaci in an 30 percent ‘after winter blowout’ sale. [Sidebar]: I thought the sale name was funny considering that the weather in this spring season, has been feeling more like a winter. Hence, the title of this post.
Then, as ‘luck’ would have it I had to go to two events — an anniversary / birthday celebration and church (I have missed going for a couple of months and I finally made an effort to go, and I am so glad that I did) As the day went on, it had dawned on me that sometimes you just have to hold on or hold out because something better could possibly come along. I am definitely glad that I reconsidered giving this skirt away and other things.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen the sneak peek of this look but you can check out the full details of my outfit collage below. Interested in my makeup? My beauty mix for this snowy weather is also below.
