Something Old, Something New

Floral Shorts

In this post, I would like to share another thrift find from my Chicago trip.  My BBF took me to her favorite thrift store in the city, Unique Thrift, and it was our lucky day.  Unique has HALF OFF everything on Mondays.  So my Chicago readers definitely take advantage of that.

I was able to score these amazing vintage shorts for about $4.00 (they were marked down half of $7.99).  The bright, bold floral print caught my eyes immediately as I was perusing the aisle of clothing.

Top It Off - Crop Tops

Well guys, I hope that you all are well.  I am in a really sweet place right now, and it's for more reasons than one.  For starters, I've finally had the opportunity to visit my best friend and her newborn son in Chicago.  Holding that little fellow was a happiness that I have never experienced.  He is such a perfect human, and he will have my heart forever.

Now let's get into this crop top situation.  I purchased this amazing crop top at a store named Windsor while in Chicago.  Of course it was purchased on discount, so that made it super awesome.   This little store was having a mega sale, I also purchased my sandals here.

Weekend Recap - Off Duty Style

This post is a synopsis of the outfits I wear for my weekend workout regimen.  You know the usual exercises of  Saturday shopping, and looking fly at Sunday brunch.

For shopping, comfort is key.  I wore a fun print cotton shirt that I scored at the thrift store for a few dollars.  I especially love the 90s vibe of the shirt.  Shorts are good solution for shopping because they are so easy to slide in and out of when shopping, and lastly -flat shoes.  

.....and I'm off.  The shopping ensues.

My favorite day of the week is Sunday.  That's the day we celebrate Jesus, and it's Brunch day.  Brunch is my favorite meal of the week.  Nothing makes me happier than sweet and savory dishes topped off with a round of mimosas.  Brunches and beautiful seem to go together hand and hand.  This day was particularly beautiful, and although the sun was shining the wind was blowing catching my high low skirt.

Muted Statement

The faces that I am making in this post pics are priceless.  Those of you who follow me on other social media outlets may know that I reside in Jackson, MS part-time, so let me tell you about the heat wave here.  The heat is just down-right RUDE.  It's sweltering.  But I can honestly say that I love it here - 115 degree heat index and all.

On this particular day in Jackson, I wore an oldie but goodie.  I got this romper on clearance (as I  do all my clothes) at Express many years ago.  I couldn't have been more happy that this thing still fit after owning it so long, and actually not wearing it for almost 3 years...I had lost it (yikes).  Another thing I love about this romper is it's versatility.  This outfit can easily go from day to night with a simple shoe and accessory swap.  Here I was out about to catch dinner with my babes, so I wore heeled sandals, a red lip, and a statement necklace.  He thought I looked fancy.

Night Out

A few nights ago we celebrated my love's birthday.  He wanted a night of libations, great food, and chill vibes; and that is definitely my type of night.

Once the location for the night is established, it's time for the outfit planning.  Lately, I have been getting dressed from my feet up...meaning this chick dress for comfy feet.  So these cute little sneakers have been my go-to for some while now.  Although I was being practical with my footwear, I had to remain sexy so I wore a slip skirt (I mean, it was my boo's birthday!!)
