Haha.. not really. But I like to pretend to be one in t-shirts that say I am. This is one of the graphic T’s I got from Old Navy last week and featured in my last post. I have basically lived in it since. I wanted to show how I paired that cool kimono from TJMaxx with it, as well as a more feminine way I styled it another day.
Annnnnnd a lil more fun & flirty… *I tied it on the side because I went a size up and it doesn’t sit very well when it hangs normally.
Until next time!
Black is a color. Black is everything. It produces an instant level of chic. Like you’ve just stepped out of the Yves Saint Laurent (yes, I still count the “Yves”.. ain’t no YSL without the Y) flagship store in Paris, where you were just casually shopping with the Olsen twins.
I just got back from a week in New York where there is some seriously a-mah-zing shopping. This top was the one thing I walked out of Zara with, and it was on sale for less than $10. Really alerted the bank with that purchase. It has a higher neckline and wide arm holes. Super easy, super black, and super covered in cat hair at the moment.

I’ve got a work vs. play look here again.. I feel like this might become routine. Both tops I’m wearing in this post were recent Target finds. My love for Target is never-failing. I ended up getting about four tops and a pair of yoga pants (because.. yoga pants, duh) all from the clearance rack! The new merchandise on the floor consisted of bikinis, cover ups, and shorts – and it’s been about eight degrees over here so that was not too appealing. They had a massive clearance section though so I spent waaay too much time scanning through it all, naturally.
(Sneaky work outfit selfies!) This top is actually really nice quality & I would have bought it full price at $29, but I was definitely happy to find it at $12.50. It’s sleeveless and is a pretty blush color with black color blocking on the sides.
Also got my hair did finally! I feel so much better not hauling around so much dead weight anymore.

Sometimes (all the time) I wish I could wear whatever I felt like wearing to work. I’m not talking like ‘pajamas and ratty T-shirt’ wear anything, but just based on whatever my style mood was of the day. Style mood is a thing.. it is reflected upon the weather, current musical interests, etc. Both above outfits were worn the past week when it was particularly rainy and nasty out, and sometimes all you feel like wearing in that sort of weather is a cuddly sweater, perfectly fitted pants, and some wedge booties to protect your toes from puddles.

I honestly didn’t mean to dress in more than 50% of the same shade, but.. it is what it is. I guess something about cognac is real appealing to me. The color that is, not the drink.
I think I was channeling my girl Kendi of www.kendieveryday.com
