Don’t you just love chic clothing at affordable prices? I’ve always loved a good deal, and so I am excited to partner with AMI Clubwear  to  show you three weekend looks. The site provides a number of versatile pieces so there’s an outfit for you, no matter the occasion. Come with me while I take you through one weekend in three outfits.

  1. The Gym

I make it a priority to hit the gym at least three times a week. When I don’t complete my three days during the work week, I’ll go on a Saturday morning before running my weekend errands or pursuing any other weekend plans. Thanks to the Youtube fitness community, I now have “a thing” for high-waisted leggings. They’re flattering and stylish, and these red attention grabbing pair from AMI Clubwear instantly upgrades my workout wardrobe.

2. Date Night

Given our busy work schedules and lives, I usually spend time with my beau on the weekends. I would totally wear this dress for a Saturday night dinner date or other event. It’s both sexy and classy and the shoulder-baring cut is one of my favorite fashion trends.

3. Brunch

I enjoy intimate conversations peppered by laughter and shared secrets, and brunch provides the perfect opportunity for those. Give me a glass of mimosa, a tasty meal and great company and I am in my element. I like that this duster upgrades the look of an otherwise simple black dress.

The Power of Consistency

 

Power of Consistency

 

 

I love the start of a new year – the freshness, the promise of new beginnings, the excitement of great possibilities and turning a new leaf. Like a lot of people, I made a few goals for this year. For me, goals are more real when you write them down, so they have been written and available for me to review periodically  in order  to monitor my progress . For as long as I can remember, I created goals. Its how I tracked my progress and my personal growth.  Combining the faith to create goals + the power of consistency almost always resulted in a goal achieved.

Since I already created the goals, this year I’m focusing on consistency.  Experience taught me that it’s powerful, and without consistent actions goals are simply dreams. Consistent actions (or a lack thereof) can mean the difference between a deposit toward meeting our goals or a withdrawal that can lead to us missing the mark. Whether it’s fitness, work, relationships or any other area in our lives,  consistency breeds results.  Not being consistent means that I am not committed, and for me, I aim to live a life where I’m fully committed to my dreams.

Here’s to using consistent actions to achieve our goals and dreams!

Weekend Winter Wonderland: Accessorizing Your Winter Outfit

Accessorizing Your Winter Outfit

 

Although I don’t necessarily love frigid winter weather, I love Fall and Winter fashion, especially in New York, a city that I believe encourages and celebrates individual style expression. In the colder months, I love to express my personal style through layering, I can have fun with different textures, colors, and  patterns, which is exactly what I did with this look. The outfit is a recent find from Zara. They are having an amaaaazing sale right now , check it out if you can. Since I’m getting a lot more intentional with my purchases, I bought the  blouse because it was fun and feminine and easy to pair with a pencil skirt or jeans.

During the winter months, the key to a chic look comes by from accessorizing our winter outfit. Boots, scarves, hats and coats pull a look together. Since most of the time, my outfits are covered  under a coat, accessories are key to expressing my style in the colder months. As a result. I always choose accessories I love, after all it’s usually the only part of  my look that most people see.
