Striped Sleeveless Top: Three Ways to Wear it

Finally an outfit post. I just can't explain why the pictures I've taken in the past few weeks have not made it to the blog. 
Below is an outfit from Saturday; I'm also showing three ways to wear the black and white sleeveless top. As you can see, it's a great summer staple and can be layered for fall. I would also wear it with shorts and probably tucked into a skirt. I realize that all three looks are black and white combinations. The top would also look great with green cropped pants. Which look is your favorite?

A Taste of Orlando, Florida

Hello, I 'm back! I mentioned in the last post that I was on vacation and also went for a training in Orlando. I've actually been back for a while but outfit posts just not working out lately. 
Here are a few pictures form the trip. We operated on a very busy schedule as we had to hit Universal Studios, Sea World, Aquatica and Downtown Disney. We even rushed to the airport from one of the parks.

Nothing spectacular about this outfit. My comfy look from last week for running around and choir rehearsal. I'm currently on vacation after a three day training with John Maxwell, so enjoy some of my old posts. Will be back soon.
Keep on loving life and keep moving in the direction of your dreams one step at a time.

Happy Friday! Still loving this versatile baseball tee. I'm not sure if denim skirts are still a thing but this one is oh so comfy and great for casual friday. I wore the top here with a black pencil skirt for a more dressed up look.
Well, this is another blog in a hurry kinda post. Have a great weekend!

Peter Pan, Dots and Surviving in 5 Inch Heels

It was a black and white Sunday again this week. I opted for this polka dot blouse to change things up. I'm already running out of black and white combination options for our choir uniform. The sandals were a last minute choice. I bought them because they were $10 and have been scared to wear them since, after wearing them once, but I survived wearing them again on stage during praise and worship at church. Thank God for heels with platforms. Everything I'm wearing, expect the bag is from Target.

Have a happy week and please be sure to check out my new class starting on August 24th.

Favorite Shoe store

I love shoes and I love getting most of my shoes from Nine West. I wear my pumps mostly on Sundays for church and since I'm on my feet for almost an hour on stage, comfort is key. Nine West shoes are comfortable and they offer great service: Free and fast shipping and a reward program that keeps me going back to get more shoes.  

Here are some of my picks for you in case you are looking for shoe shopping ideas. I own the silver version of the leopard pumps and the burgundy version of the grey pumps is what I have on in the picture below. (I knew this photo would come in handy one day. The rest of the shoot didn't come out right but I saved this picture just in case).
You cannot go wrong with leopard and grey both of which are hard to find. The grey goes with anything and the leopard pumps adds a pop to any outfit.  I also love Nine West hand bags. The satchel is another favorite of mine and I have it in hot pink/radiant orchid as shown in this post from last month.
