Alice in Wonderland

I've been on an Alice in Wonderland kick lately as I dressed up as the Queen of Hearts for an early Halloween celebration seen on my instagram

Truth is Alice in Wonderland is my least favorite Disney movie and I LOVE Disney, but I'm more of an Ariel, Jasmine and Belle girl. 

Alice was just too boring for me (plus she wasn't a princess), she needed a pinch of spunk to get me to like her some, but this top was too whimsical to pass up!

Super Woman

"I'm Super Girl and I'm here to save the world!"

I try to think I am super woman.

I can do it all; work full-time, blog, be a great aunt, sister, friend and daughter.

Truth is I can't do it all, especially not alone!

I read this quote recently..."Asking for help does not equal weakness. In fact, it is a strength. No person has ever succeeded in isolation. It takes teamwork to accomplish goals. Asking for help is a sign that you have grown as a person."

It has taken me 26 years to come to terms with this concept and it feels so invigorating to actually count on people and have people count on me. 

I still have the confidence to know I can handle anything that gets thrown my way but I am more than happy to share vulnerabilities and own up to the fact I am not perfect which is something that is extremely hard for a Type A personality, like myself to even admit.

But for today I am Super Woman in my super cool blazer cape!

Sweater Vest

Never thought I would ever own a sweater vest, the word alone leaves a bad taste in my mouth but this sweater vest or some like to call it a "sleeveless sweater" is one of the cutest things I've come in contact with in a while.

Have a great weekend!

Effortless

I love classic pieces that just come together effortlessly.

When you have key pieces in your wardrobe like a pencil skirt, black pumps and a white tee (etc) you can literally make endless amount of outfits from key pieces every woman should have in her wardrobe!

Key Pieces are: (in my opinion)

1. classic trench coat

2. white long sleeve button front shirt

3. black pencil skirt

4. black leather skinny pants

5. pair of DARK wash skinny jeans

(nothing bothers me more than a pair of light wash jeans)

6. black classic pumps

7. a structured handbag 

8. white/grey/black tee's (yes, these fall under one category)

9. black or tan leather boots

10. structured blazer

All about the SHOES

"WHEN YOUR LOVE LIFE IS AT A STANDSTILL YOUR SHOE GAME BENEFITS." - Carrie Bradshaw

Who else is an emotional shopper? ME! I'm not saying I shop because I have no love life (which is true) but I shop at all emotional levels of my life. When I'm happy...I shop, when I'm sad...I shop, when I'm bored...I shop, you get the point, I LOVE TO SHOP.

I love to shop especially for shoes because they ALWAYS fit! And when you're lacking in outfit inspiration you can always put on a fabulous pair of shoes and look like a million bucks instantly, this is kind of what I did here, I put on an all black outfit, threw on a cropped blazer and, VOILA these fabulous pair of shoes just took a simple outfit to the next level!

Sixth Sense

I literally hunted this vest down for weeks before I randomly found it online.

I was surfing the web one night when something told me (my fashion sixth sense) to check the Ann Taylor website and when I did I saw this vest at 60% off, in my size, with only one left I quickly put it in my shopping bag and checked out.

Meant to be, I tell ya and I couldn't love it more. It's a heavy knit fabric that can easily be worn layered with a thick sweater underneath on those not so brutally cold days. 

I hope y'all enjoy your weekend, I am spending my day studying for my GMATS as I am taking them tomorrow! Wish me luck.
