Out and About: Casual Chic

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! It's just one more day till...Christmas!  Thank you all so much for the comments on my previous post!  The day went well, thanks to God.

 On arriving home, I was trying to take some chairs out of the car, and it landed on my right foot. Yes,  I dropped a chair (fold-able) on my foot! Remember earlier this year, I made mentioned that I injured my left foot/ankle and I had to stop wearing heels for a while? Well, that left foot hasn't completely healed, and now I have another injury on my right foot. I really don't know what to do anymore. It sucks having injury on both feet. Even trying to turn my feet from one side to another hurts and it makes cracking sounds. I'm sure you don't want to hear that...haha! :)  I had the audacity to wear heels to church yesterday, and trust me, it sorta made things worse. Anyways, keep me in your prayers! :)

Today's post features an OOTD I wore to school sometime last week, during final exams week in school. That day, I wanted to 'dress up', I guess I did that, but no, the outfit doesn't include any heels. The last time I wore some sort of heel (wedges) to school, I became very tired after a few hours. Walking from a building to another, does that to me, especially in heels.

Dear Plaid

Good Morning everyone!

The look below was what I wore to church on Sunday; it was my first time 'dressing up' a plaid shirt. I think the outfit turned out okay. I can't wait to try a different look with it! :)

Enjoy the pictures.

Winter Brights

Happy Friday! I hope your week was good! 

Thanks so much for all the sweet comments you leave on my posts, it's appreciated! 

A few weeks ago, Stephanie of Chocolate Laced published this look on her blog. It was an OOTD she had worn to school. After viewing the pictures, I was inspired and on Sunday, I decided to re-create the look.

Check out my interpretation of her look below:

Out and About: Dressed in Plaid

Good day, Expressionistas (my new word, check my followers column on the left to confirm)! Happy December 12, 2012! :)

The look below, is similar to this one, because they're both a 'layered' look. Underneath the plaid dress, I'm wearing a beige long sleeves t-shirt. I completed the look with long sleeves brown sweater and cinched in my waist with a brown skinny belt. The belt and boots are of the same color; which ties the look together!  And, yeah I'm wearing purple tights (matches the purple on the plaid dress).

Out and About: Leopard and Polka-dot (100th post)

Happy Friday! I hope your week went well. I guess this is my 100th post! :D
I started this blog on February 13, 2012. I talked more about the reasons I started this blog in this post (it's been updated).

Do you remember the outfit I shown here? I did plan on wearing that outfit to school the next day, but after trying it on, it just didn't 'feel' or 'look' right. I changed up the look a bit, although I wasn't entirely satisfied with the outcome (haha). I would have worn the scarf a different way and added a skinny black belt, to cinch in my waist and emphasize the black in the scarf. Oh well, there always a next time (experimenting with one's style is the key!) I'll try to style the red vest and distressed jeans in another OOTD post!

 'Yay' to chubby cheeks (you'll notice what I mean in the pictures below). LOL. I actually think chubby cheeks makes me look younger! ;)
Anyways, check out the look below:

Out and About: Burgundy Print

Good day! I'm so grateful for my newest followers. I'm glad you took interest in my blog and what I have to offer. I hope you enjoy your stay here! :)

Two weeks ago, on a Saturday, I attended a surprise get-together for my mom's aunt. It was a 60th birthday celebration and was quite fun. I shared my look (below) on Instagram, but I wasn't sure I would post it on my blog, because of the quality. Since, I wasn't able to take pictures outside (it was a late/dark night), I took pictures inside instead.

Check out the look, below:

I'm wearing my new printed pants from Target, paired with a burgundy top.
