Forever 21

(G)OLD & The Beautiful!

Gold isn’t the easiest color to wear!  Sometimes the color can be flattering in evening wear, accessories, pair of heels and other times just a little tacky.

I came across these shimmery gold “genie” style pants from Zara for only $20 and didn’t exactly know how to style them.  They actually sat in my closet for months before I gained enough “courage” to wear these cuties. LoL.

I decided to pair them with a pair of cute gold heels from Zara (click link to view).  Gold heels can definitely add a little pop to any outfit!  These are a great deal, only $49.90!  The shirt is from Forever21 – my go to for simple cute shirts.

What’s the Perfect Working Bag?

Like most women, I’m constantly balancing work, gym, hobbies and so many other things we have going.  I always find myself looking for the perfect go to bag to help balance everything.

Black leather bags have always been my favorite and I see most many women carry them as well. I started to think why leather? Well, it’s durable, timeless and most importantly can be carried on a day to day without ruining the quality!  With so many styles and variations, a nice leather bag can complete your outfit and give so much confidence.  My personal favorite is the classic tote.

For the past month, I’ve carried this black  Women’s Work Tote Handbag by Merona from Target which I absolutely love.  It’s big enough to fit my laptop which is my favorite but I can also carry my makeup case and a pair of flats for those long days!  🙂

Any suggestions Ladies?  What are the Best Tote Bags for work?

Fashion Statements! 

One of the great things about fashion is that you’re able to express yourself! I love clothing or brands that actually make a statement – literally or figuratively. 

I came across this shirt below at Zara that I absolutely love because it spoke to me when I immediately saw it.  Inspiring others is so important!

OTK! 👍🏾 or 👎🏾? 

Over the knee boots! Yes, that’s OTK abbreviated which I recently learned. 😉 During the massive post Thanksgiving sale, I came across these lovely pair of boots from Aldo’s shoes.   Ladies, don’t be afraid to pull this look off!  I wanted to share a quick review on these babies. 

Pros: super comfy, heel is not too high (for me), can be worn with multiple outfits and easy to slip on and off.  They will definitely keep you warm! 

Cons:  Boots are a bit tight around the calf  area but manageable. 

Overall, these boots were a steal. They are currently on the website at 50% discount. I opted to go with a black boot because it goes with so many things and most certainly makes me look a little bit longer. 
Here’s the link to take a look at the boots!

One Top >>Two Looks 

I’m a firm believer in getting the best value from the clothing I purchase. So sometimes I like to purchase tops that I can wear to the office but also can wear to happy hour, dinner date etc…. 

It’s very simple to turn a work outfit to a date night outfit. You can simple change to jeans or maybe put on a different pair of heels. 

This top is by one of my favorites from Zara I purchased about a year ago. It’s definitely more for the fall/winter because of the wool material.  The details I just love! 

Take a look below on how I turned the work outfit to a happy hour/date night outfit. 

Top | Zara – Under $40 

Jeans  | Zara – Under $30 

Oversized clutch  | Forever21 – $20
