Good evening loves! Living in Florida its all about layers & transitioning your wardrobe. In this post I show you how to layer your summer favs during this fickle fall weather.
There’s only two weeks left before Christmas! It’s been pretty hard to get into the Holiday spirit due to the weather here in Florida. For example, today it was 80 degrees and tomorrow it will be 59. Thank God I love layering in the Fall/Winter! You’ll see a lot of layered looks on the blog if the weather keeps this up.
I’m a sucker when it comes to jackets -any outerwear really. I’m not a stranger to thrifting, but here lately I’ve been finding some gems! Maybe because it’s the end of the year and everyone is purging their closets. Either way, when I saw this zipper front tweed jacket at Goodwill I immediately threw it in my cart!
Being a single mom I tend to be a frugal fashionista. I will do anything to save my coins and I definitely wasn’t mad at snagging this cute jacket for $5.00. For five bucks I can wear the jacket with jeans like I did here, or throw on some slacks, blouse and pumps and wear this to work. Versatility is everything for me! Thou shall stretch thy coinT! 🙌🏽😂
I love the black trim and zipper closure – gives it a edgy feel. Most tweed jackets I find have button closures so I thought this one was unique. Paired with the tweed jacket, I wore a black ribbed bodysuit, black distressed skinny jeans, and black lace up sandals. If your interested in purchasing anything I’m wearing all the details are below. Unfortunately I don’t have the link for the jacket but I found a cute similar option.

In 2018, I definitely want to travel more. Although in these pictures I’m in Jacksonville, its give me all kind of vacation vibes! In the New Year, what’s one thing you plan on doing for YOU? Let me know in the comments below.
Hey loves! Hope you enjoyed your Holiday Weekend. Living far away from home, the Holiday’s can be a bit rough for me. I tend to get a little home sick. However, I’m thankful for good friends here in Jacksonville. My friends always invite me over during the Holiday’s, and treat my daughter and I like family.
Monday’s are normally a drag for me, but today I’m excited because it’s a three day work week! Over the weekend I finalized my Thanksgiving menu, took photo’s for the blog, had lunch with my girls, did some shopping, and stalked all the black Friday ads. Somewhat productive, right? (more…)
Florida is finally getting cooler, but this Michigan native is NOT complaining. However, living in Florida, dressing for Fall can be tricky. One moment its cold and the next its hot. That’s why I love wearing layers! It’s perfect because like pictured here, in the mornings I can wear a turtle neck with a button down or jacket. But in the afternoon, I can wrap the button down around my waist to stay cool and it gives me a edgy look. (more…)
This Fall I’ve been loving adding beautiful bold colors (especially jewel tones) to my wardrobe. This cute little clutch, platform pumps, and comfy pair of boyfriend jeans was a perfect contrast with my mustard color top. (more…)
Happy Halloween! Can you believe tomorrow is November 1st?! Only 61 days left in 2017. Jacksonville is finally feeling like Fall with temps in the 50’s. NOW I’m getting all the Fall feels. I’ve been craving pumpkin spice and maple everything! With the family being super busy this past weekend, I had to stop at the pumpkin patch alone to grab a pumpkin for Kyleah to carve. I also grabbed one for myself to cook with. Recipe coming soon! Here’s an affordable fall outfit that’s comfortable and chic. (more…)
Sunday I had the opportunity to attended Crème of Nature’s Naturals Night Out here in Jacksonville! This was my first time attending this event and my friend Amerika B and I had a great time. Naturals Night Out was held at the Aloft boutique hotel in Tapestry Park. (more…)
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. I know I did! Friday I hung out with my blogger boo’s. We took some pictures of course and grabbed food at M Shack (who has the BEST old bay fries EVER!). (more…)
I was invited out to Nordstrom Beauty Bash this weekend and had a chance to hang with my blogger boo’s Amerika from Amerika B Style Me and Trice from High Heels & Good Meals. The Anniversay sale is where Norstrom lets you shop new arrivals at a Super Sale Price. I had so much fun at the event! From a band and dance team opening the event, a FABULOUS Drag Queen by the name of Dee Ranged sashaying in a sexy gold sequin dress as our host, to free beauty products; waking up at 8:00am was definitely worth it!
