A Day at Butler’s Orchard

A couple of weeks ago, the girls and I visited Butler’s Orchard in Maryland. I was excited to visit the farm because I had been researching photos on the farm to find inspiration for our shoot. Although I am definitely a city girl, I had a great time playing around on the farm and the tractors. Dress – Amazon | Boots – Similar | Hat – Similar The best thing about this dress is that it’s under $20 and it has pockets. It also comes in 17 different colors and will definitely be a dress I will order again. Amazon for the win! A little flowers to brighten this dreary day… Wine is clearly going to be a color that I wear a lot of this winter. Everything I seem to buy lately is wine colored. I can’t seem to get enough of it. What colors are you feeling this season?

Sex in the City for the Career Girl

I love statement necklace to make a basic outfit pop. Since I am still learning to step outside of my comfort zone, I went to Eloquii to get a few statement pieces for my workwear. When I first saw this Ruffle Sleeve dress, I wanted to grab it in black first. However, the lovely Kristen at Eloquii’s Pentagon City store convinced me to try on this dress in yellow. Once I threw the cape on with this dress, I knew it was a winner. Dress – Eloquii | Below the Knee Cape – Eloquii I bought these heels years ago from Payless Shoes actually and they are some of my favorite heels because they are comfortable. Bag – Similiar | Heels – Similar As you can see, Eloquii is great if you’re looking for a simple dress with a popping color or patterned pants paired with a simple blazer. Eloquii is my favorite…

In a Queen State of Mind

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw my announcement a couple months ago announcing a collaboration with three other bloggers. If you missed the announcement, meet the District Queens.. The District Queens is made up of (from left to right) Yasmine – darkerberrie, Tiffany – @policyandfashion, Myself @YoSoyYayaR and Joy – @enjoycurves. We’re all bloggers growing our brands and trying to make our mark, who have decided to create a movement together that celebrates love for our curves, cultivating friendships, as well as collaboration and empowerment for women. Here are some of my shots from our first shoot. I am usually my BIGGEST critic because I hate being in front of the camera, but our photographer Kevin did his THANG! Dress: Old Navy (circa ‘2015), Similar /Shoes: JustFab You can follow the District Queens on Instagram and Facebook to catch more of our looks from this shoot.

My Personal Style

Around October of last year, I started thinking about what I wanted to do differently for the blog in 2016. I knew I wanted to dabble in the style and fashion side of blogging, but being the shy person that I am, I hate drawing attention to myself. I also hate being in front of the camera, unless I’m taking selfies. However, since 2017 is all about stepping outside of my comfort zone, I decided to proceed with the idea. I’ll be sharing my first style post this week, but before I do, I wanted to give you a little info about my personal style and taste. HOW WOULD I CLASSIFY MY STYLE? My style honestly depends on my mood or the occasion. One day I will wake up ready to slay the day and be super fashionable. Other days (like today), I am so tired, I throw on anything…
