So basically…this winter is no joke. The constant freezing temperatures and completely white terrain has ceased any opportunity of taking new style shots. An #OOTD was an obvious must in Sunday’s sunshine despite its 18 degree temperature but if there’s blue skies rather than grey clouds, I’ll take it!

I love a big, cozy, slouchy cardigan. What I love more is that they are so versatile! A week ago I came to work with this cardy, a plain high-low black dress, black tights, and floral Dr. Martens-ish boots. If I recall, “grunge princess” was a term coined. Six days later, replace the dress with a skirt, add some heels and a statement necklace, and boom! Grunge whaat?

Here are a few of my favorite outerwear blankets cardigans. Dress it up or down, either way goes!
Psssst- the best ones come from the thrift store. No lie. Just sayin’!

Cardies!

Hello, weekend!

Second day in Cali and I attended a business conference. What? On vacation? Surprisingly, this unexpected meeting was very interesting!

This event called for business attire, obviously. When one packs for a sunny state such as CA you don’t typically think to bring a blazer and a pencil skirt. Thankfully I borrowed this Jessica Simpson dress and had accessories to go with it. Look what over packing can do!

Hope you all had a great week and a wonderful 4th of July! 🙂

Let’s stay connected on Twitter, shall we? @Just_Jireh

OOTD from the wedding. Let me just say that if you’re on a tight budget and need to get your hair/makeup done, all you need is YouTube. However, I would suggest practicing before the event rather than learning and doing on the actual day.

My hair doesn’t hold teasing, so I used a Bump-It for the first time. For the doubters, I was a doubter too, but now I love it!
