This past Friday I did my sisterly duties by accompanying my sister to her University for a day trip. In the middle of their campus they have a grassy area I loved, and with a slight overcast it was perfect for a style shoot! I read once that if you have more skin covered (despite commons beliefs) then you can actually stay cooler. I decided to try this out by wearing one of my thinner cotton shirts over a little black dress. Tie it up in the front and voila! Its summer time which means I can bring out my handbags without worrying about lugging around school supplies. I love this roomy orange bag I got a few Christmas seasons ago. It's perfect for carrying all my mini gadgets for a shoot!

So I finally got to bust out my favorite Steve Madden heels this past Sunday! This outfit actually came together all of sudden due to me trying on various dress options and being too lazy to change out of my flow white maxi. After throwing on jewelry and my trusty jean jacket I actually ended up liking the look more than I thought I would. The shoes brought it together of course! Building looks from the shoes up can be a great way to breakthrough styling block, and to finding an outfit you'll enjoy your day in!

Thanks the lord for hand-me-downs! This Sunday I decided to wear a pair of palazzo pants that I've had for like two years but never styled them until today. I took a day off from my heels today but I have short legs so I could've easily worn any of my pumps to give me a boost! I'm wearing one of my jean shirts which is a definite go-to of mine whenever I want to cover up my shoulders for the day. My favorite aspect of this outfit was how effortlessly elegant it looked. The pants carried some great movement which dressed up my shirt a little. I wore gold accessories today which is a huge change for me bracelet wise. I want to embrace gold more so I will be looking for some gold pieces to implement in my jewelry rotation.
