Back from vacation, feeling very relaxed and looking sun-kissed …

Thursday’s are usually the days when I’m most in thought: What am I doing this weekend? Why isn’t it Friday yet? Is it time to go home yet? You know things like that while on my morning commute 😂

Still day dreaming about laying on the beach and that oh so awesome time I was Captain Kim aboard the Non-such Bay Antigua sailboat 😍😍 One week before taking these pictures I was smooth sailing on the beautiful waters of Antigua … take a look

Wow, just wow is all I have to say! I was so happy

You wouldn’t normally see me wearing pants for a whole week but I wasn’t in the mood for dresses. And according to my bi-weekly IG poll, Thursday’s nautical casual chic outfit was the best. Still given off captain vibes:

“Casual Chic”

i. Make your main statement with 1item

ii. A casual/relaxed look

iii. “Dress it up” with heels

Paired with navy blue ankle length pants, white short sleeved-shirt and patent leather loafers, this jacket makes the outfit because of its navy blue sateen lining 😍😍

You may have heard me mention this before, but stripes aren’t usually my favorite. So when I find an item where the stripes look simplistic, it’s a must have!

Chloe was the right choice for this look, with modest makeup and accessories. Topped off with a high-bun to keep it classy.

I purchased this jacket from NY&C last year (or the year before 🤷🏽‍♀️ I just popped the tag😄), but I wasn’t ready to wear it until this today. One thing you’ll get to know about me is I LOVE to shop; but I have to be ready to wear certain items. I don’t buy to just wear, I buy to style. Thought and purpose go into what I wear – and the execution amazes me every time!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll for “best outfit of the week”. Follow my Instagram and Facebook to be notified of the next one.

StayChic 💚📸💋

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🔥😍 …
