Week after week most of us are doing the same thing .. wake up, commute an hour or more, work for someone else for 8 or 9 hours, go home and do it all over again. Five days a week .. Sounds depressing right!? Guess what, do something about it. Turn those boring days up a notch 💃🏽

If ima do it, Ima look good doing it. I’m out here snatching goals and slaying at the same damn time💥💥💥 Here’s a recap of my last three Corporate Chic Styles:

Wednesday Friday Monday

“Corporate Chic”

i. for business meetings where you’re the only (black) woman in the room

ii. business breakfasts/luncheons

iii. afterwork networking events

iv. because I feel like it! 😜

More often than not, it’s the first 3 … but I do it all because I feeeel like it. I Dress For Me. You know that dance you do when an outfit comes together perfectly and it took minimal effort … yasss hunnie🔥😍 …

Let’s breakdown each ensemble:

Wednesday: Business Lunch

Open Blazer in Sunny Yellow from H&M

All Black, Soft V-Neck Dress from NY&C

All Black Suede Stilettos Pumps from Aldo

Friday – Business Lunch

Hunter Green, Diamond Print Set from NY&C

Black and White Snake Print Belt

All Black Suede Stiletto Pumps

Monday – Business Meeting

Mint Green Bodysuit from Eva Mendes’ Collection at NY&C

Grey Suit from H&M

Nude, Patent Leather Mary Janes

Yess to all of this 😍🔥👑. Didn’t it get you excited?! What excitement are you bringing into your week?

You’ll notice every style is accessorized with a simple ‘diamond’ post and necklace; natural makeup and hair pulled back. Simple. Chic. Ready to go.

Bring It, Own It, Wear It. I’ll say it again, you make the clothes!! ::snap snap::

 

Now that’s Motivational Monday!💚📸💋

These posts are flowing through my fingertips like nothing! I have so many thoughts I want to share; but we’ll ease into that 😉

I’ll keep you up-to-date with topics that I hope peek your interest as much as mine. You might agree, you may disagree. In either case, just keep it respectful. There will be no tolerance for negativity .. A simple block, and you’re out of sight, out of mind!

So let’s begin. Here’s a good one that’s been on my mind lately, “how many of us are keeping it REAL”🙋🏽‍♀️? If you aren’t, is there any harm in being yourself? Take some time and understand “Who You Are”. You’ll likely recognize that you might not have it all together, and that’s OK! But let’s at least recognize who we are as individuals, and if there’s work to do, work on it! And make sure the rest of the world knows you’re trying. No one can be mad at anyone for trying to do better. Be your true self.

But let’s talk about those select few people who drive you batshit crazy but you can’t avoid seeing them .. the ones that try to steal your joy away .. TUH! 🙄 … yea them! When all you wanna do is tell them what you’re really thinking, but if you say something you’ll look like the bad one, while they’re innocent .. TUH! 🙄 Smile (optional!) and keep it movin’ folks. I choose to ignore fake people, because they aren’t worth the attention.

But watch your step, because in this “real” world, the ones wanting change, the ones offering the solutions for people to be better, get over-looked because the decision makers think the “cost” is too high 🎤drop … I’m offering change, but you turn it down. Funny how that works! How much is change really worth to you?

But this is the game we have to play with fake people. My suggestion, play better. Someone is going to get check-mate, and let it be YOU! Because when you’re keeping it real, there’s no time for games. Let’s Get This Work Done Queens and Kings!
