{Outfit of the Day} Showing a Lil’ Leg with Jean Shorts

My husband’s birthday was yesterday and we spent it doing what the children wanted to do. They truly believed he wanted to bowl on his birthday.

I kept it what I like to call “chic casual”.  My tummy and love handles need a bit of… we’ll say attention, so I don’t care to just throw them out there with a fitted tee without a little camouflaging.

{Outfit of the Day} Pink and Green Tunic

June 20, 2014
IMG_3001

I’ve been spending the majority of my days in jeans and tank tops. Nothing glamorous to see here.

Yesterday I photographed a friend of mine that will be welcoming her first child in August. This was the first time I made it out of the house with a purpose this week so  I stole the opportunity as a chance to put some clothes on..not in the literal sense of course.

I promise, there is nothing like a good tunic. Quick, easy and stylish.

This particular tunic has a story. I purchased it at an off season sale in 2009. When I got it home and hung it up, it dawned on me that it was pink and green and rekindled my desire to become an AKA.

I put it in my closet and let it hang there for 4 years. I never wore it. I used it as motivation, when I wanted to give up. Almost 5 years later, it sure feels good to put it on as an AKA.

I’ve been rocking and rolling with these white flower flip flops from Kohl’s. I probably wear them everyday!!

{Outfit of the Day} Farmer’s Market Fresh

June 3, 2014
IMG_2186

Going into the weekend, the refrigerator and cabinets were bare. There were pickings but they were slim and required some imagination to concoct a meal.

Saturday I got busy and by Sunday we were practically eating air so I had to make a trek to the Farmer’s Market.

I threw on what I felt comfortable in. I am slowly realizing in my old age that I really like classic styles and looks. I get the trends but unless they are marked down I probably won’t buy them. Give me an oxford and some shorts and I’m good.

{Outfit of the Day} Go Big or Go Home

I love an oversized flowy top. My obsession has me with a few XL and XXL tops in my closet.

I slipped and fell into this obsession when I went to look for a shirt that wasn’t in my size but there was an XXL available. I said to self, ” Mimi you can belt this and be okay.”

Sometimes the shirt falls a little longer than my shorts but I’m sure people know I have pants on. I hope so.

If you are going to wear an over-sized shirt, I suggest either belting in the waist or adding a longer length necklace.

Mary Mac’s Tea Room + {OOTD}

April 24, 2014

I have sufficiently informed y’all that I intend to spend the remainder of this year chilling with the homies every chance I get. I’ve had enough of “making” myself too busy to spend time with the people I love. I am at my best laughing , eating and having a cocktail or three with the people who know, get and support me. I’m telling you it’s good for the soul and I implore you to make a few adjustments in your life to make room for these special moments. Life is short.

I digress.

Tuesday morning one  of my best friends called  and asked if I wanted to grab something to eat. Two short hours later we were sitting at Mary Mac’s Tea Room,  a renowned restaurant here in Atlanta. While I’m not a true born ATLien I’ve been here long enough to be quite shamed that I had never been to this iconic restaurant. I found the food to be delicious. You know it can be hit or miss with southern/soul food. Mary Mac’s Tea Room was a hit indeed.

Since we only had a short time we quickly put our orders in, not an easy task. I settled on the highly recommended fried chicken and added sweet potato souffle and macaroni as my sides.

So. D&*n. Good.

I’m not a big eater but if it’s good and in front of me…come on now.

Peter Som for Kohl’s Must Have Staples + $100 Giveaway

Peter Som for Kohls

* I have been provided compensation to facilitate this post via the Kohl’s Ambassador Campaign. All opinions are mine. You already know!!*

Sadly this is my last post for the  Kohl’s /Peter Som ambassador campaign. I hope you’ve enjoyed my outfit pictures and gotten a good idea of the amazing fashion at affordable pricing that Kohl’s has to offer.

This week I picked up two last items and while I could’ve gone crazy I stuck with the basics. Basics should never be underestimated, as they are the blank canvas that gives our accessories and statement pieces the arena to shine.

I couldn’t leave without picking up the white Moto jacket. It is everything on. I’ll admit on the hanger I wasn’t impressed but I’m sure glad I tried it on. The fabric is perfect to cover your arms at the movies or for a walk on the beach at night. I thought it had a lot of potential and I’ve dressed it three different ways.

With the whole talk that it is okay to wear white year round, while not totally on board with this new fashion rule in the event I feel the need to run full speed to catch that train this jacket is my ticket.

I think the gold accents on the jacket are just enough to subtlety add a  little bling for people like me who like to keep it classic and simple.

Shop the entire collection online and if you didn’t have any luck winning the contest last week you’re in for a treat. I’m hosting another giveaway this week for another $100 Kohl’s  Gift Card!!
