What do Tigers, Greek keys, zebra print, and gold palm leaves all have in common? Well, they're all featured on this amazing top. I love mixing prints and love it more when it's already done for me. Because the top is the main focal point, I opted for a basic black flirty skirt and fun accessories in bold colors. There's nothing like a little yellow and gold.
No this post is not paying homage to the most amazing show on t.v., Scandal but rather an ode to the most over-the-top, outrageously sexy pair of shoes I've ever owned. As much as I'm obsessed with Harrison, I'm head over heels for these sandals. So much so, the day after receiving them, I wore them to work. One might say it's a bit risque for the office (the rational side of my brain totally agrees) but my daring (sometimes ratchet) side of my brain says ehh! Since, I do work in Academia, I had to tone down the sex appeal a tad with darker colors and a blazer but don't you worry, mama gonna provide L.I.F.E to ya'll real soon.

Its the beginning of memorial day weekend and while many are living it up in Miami, Vegas, Atlantic City and other party destinations, I remained at home with my loved ones. To kick off the weekend, a candy, popcorn and soda fun filled early afternoon at the movies to see Epic (ya know, the animation starring Beyonce). Having come straight from work, my chic water downed rock look worked perfectly as I am thee Rock Mom.

Have a safe and memorable Memorial Weekend loves!!
This has been a week of sorts and boy am I happy it's Friday. Took out my new white pumps out for a spin today. I don't think I've owned a pair of white shoes since I was a kid and the tedious moments spent keeping my church shoes white with the help of some white shoe griffin nonetheless (I KNOW I'm not the only one out there who used white shoe griffin?!).
In the spirit of Casual Friday, I opted for jeans, which I never wear, but in a semi-boyfriend style. Threw on a white blazer and silver top with accessories and I was good to go. Makeup was basic with lashes, neutral eye and my trusty Ruby Woo (speaking of which, please tell me I wasn't the only one on an hour or so wait for that RiriWoo Yesterday? Never again)

Before I begin this fashion post, thank you everyone for all your birthday wishes via IG, Twitter and FB. Truly means a lot. I appreciate everyone of you!!
As I mentioned on a previous post, I recent discovered Kohl's (a department store similar to JcPenny, TJMaxx, etc) and I gotta tell ya, I'm beyond ecstatic that I did. Like Target, Kohl's hosts special edition limited time designer launches and houses several designer lines from Vera Wang, Jennifer Lopez, Lauren Conrad to name a few. On a random Google search for pajama style charmeuse pants (I was obsessed with a pair of ill-fitting Zara ones), I came across the Narciso Rodriquez collaboration that launched during the holidays. The best part about it is, I managed to find several separates from this special line that can easily be pieced together. Further, they were all on clearance which made an epic haul possible.
Today's outfit showcases two pieces that I instantly fell in love with-the medallion charmeuse top and bottom. This ensemble worked perfectly for me since I was going for a sophisticated birthday dinner look.
The pants (sz xl) were too big and I ended up having to tailor it a bit myself but will eventually bring it to a professional. I loved the the silkymaterial which mimicked pajamas in terms of the comfort level and the medallion print with the tuxedo stripe. I was annoyed by the asymmetrical tricky collar from the top, which seemed to catch everything. I speculate this top would have worked best for someone who's less endowed.
Blouse and pants, Kohl's; Blazer thrifted; Sandals, Zara
If you are into saving money and looking chic, don't hesitate and head over to Kohl's NOW. These pants are currently on clearance for $9.60 (originally $49). They also come in a paisley print as well. All in all, don't sleep on Kohl's ladies.
