As much as I love to mix prints, I am also quite fond of a good monochromatic look. Olive khaki can be found in pretty much every silhouette available--from bombers, sweatshirts, dresses, chinos, shoes, hats, overcoats and the list goes on . I love olive as well as summer country nights so I meshed the to together for this fashion fete. Coastal Couture boutique in Leland , NC sells this amazingly tailor-fitted Olive Jumpsuit for only $39.99. With split sleeves, gold grommet details at the neckline and waist, pockets, and a darted waist you will catch glances from everywhere and everyone! The jumpsuit has a lot of stretch which hugs where needed and the material is thick enough to camouflage and smooth all imperfections. My clear box bag was a steal for only $17 from Romwe.com. I also got my earrings from there last year, but they are currently sold out (sorry). I kept the khaki theme strong by pairing my jumpsuit with my barely there strappy sandals from Missguided.I got them last year as well (I know, boo! ), so these are sold out.You can shop a similar look here for $24.00.They also have free shipping for a limited time so don't miss out.

This post is coming to you courtesy of the fab stylings of Black Russian Label. Located in Arizona, this couture label is lit!! Word of caution : this is not your everyday style! From funky prints to asymmetrical cuts they are serving fierce. Olive (I love) a good challenge and a great fun piece so this styling their Parisian Nights dress was a dream. When I shot this look it was still a bit chilly so I layered a white button down underneath. For a touch of mod , I stepped into my black Public Desire Perspex boots ($50).Accessories were kept minimal, but that was because they were bold, like me.My gold , which I stole from my mom complimented my wonderful rope statement necklace courtesy of Chanelsyles.com .I have been in a hat mood lately so my straw pom pom hat from BCBG.com last year on sale for $32(sold out).That is the most I ever spent on a hat.I am a cheapskate, by trade yet I do not regret this purchase. When I tell you I love this dress, I mean I Loooove this dress!! This is no ordinary fly by night brand. Their pieces are made with quality materials as tailoring. Did I mention this dress has pockets!!! Pockets just make everything better, whether for use or aesthetics pockets on a dress is always top on my list.If you are a lover of risqué fashion head over to www.blackrussianlabel.com and check out all they have to offer!
I know I hadn't posted in a while , I was sooooo overwhelmed with shooting so many looks and enjoying my birthday (4/15) that I just didn't have time.I also had to register my sweet 5 year- old baby for Kindergarten today *insert tsunami of tears.So let's just say I had a lot of adulating going on.If adulting doesn't consume me again I'll be posting again Friday.Stay fab!
Olive Khaki(and khaki in general) has been trending all year! I totally obessessed with it too! This post just serves as fall inspiration on how you can incorporate this color into style staples. Sleeveless coats, maxi skirts, and barely there sandals are pretty much staples on every fashionista's closet.Today's looks showcase the minimalist's perspective on the fall fave hue.Enjoy :)

Fall is officially here in the Carolinas! Any temperature lower that 69 degrees warrants a light jacket and ''you betta make sure you have on an undershirt before you get sick!" (pretty much the typical southern black mommma ).I know I promised this post by Friday, but I had computer issues. Changing leaves, warm autumn colors ,and holding mugs with two hands while I say "MMMmmmm" are all the things I love about this time of the year.... oh yea did I mention jackets? Olive Khaki has appeared in almost every silhouette this summer and still goes strong into cooler weather. Wine, Bordeaux, Maroon, or formally known as "Burgundy" is definitely the "it" color of the season. The rich hue can pull together many fall looks as either a complimentary color or even in a monochrome look for a bold statement. I just took my braids out and managed to barely get through wash day (natural hair probs), so a hat was definitely not a option more like a requirement. To compliment my olive khaki waterfall jacket, wine colored flats, and chestnut croc-embossed bag I decided to go with a grey kitten ear bowler. As gray can be a neutral, I think it pulled together my look and also makes a statement. I threw on my cat eye glasses just for the "cute and smart factor"....don't judge me.lol
