Winter Preview Fashion

Hello,

I’ve been busy with Luke and Queen Styles Boutique! This year’s pop-up shops are different. I need to stop and pump for Luke. Which means I need coverage while I’m away. I’m grateful to have great friends and family who are helping me during this new season. Not to mention a husband who delights in encouraging me.

Here are a few looks from this month. All looks have pieces from Queen Styles

Don’t forget! You can follow all of my adventures, family fun, and Queen Styles Boutique fashions on my Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/_lifeisgolden_

Shopping Small

Hello!

I hope this post finds you well. I’ve been getting ready for Shop Small Saturday. American Express annually holds this event to shine light on small businesses. It was truly an amazing experience! Running Queen Styles Boutique has opened my eyes to the importance of supporting and investing local businesses. Before owning Queen Styles Boutique, it didn’t occur to me that when you and I make the decision to shop in local businesses, we are choosing to invest in our communities. When we shop in local businesses, we are validating dreams. Here’s a picture from yesterday:

The First Outfit of 2016

I’ve always loved New Year’s Eve. It’s something about that night that makes me think of the possibilities of a new year. I’m truly excited about 2016! I brought in the new year with my husband. Sometimes we celebrate with our friends but with me getting sick last year, we really wanted to celebrate with just the two of us. I love how this plaid shirt gives a casual feel to these sequined leggings. Here’s what I wore:

Leggings: H&M

Shirt: Forever21

Boots: Old Navy

Blazer: Thrift Store Find

   
    
   

In All Black

I rarely wear all black. I just put the finishing touches on classes and am on a two week break from classes and work so I felt the need to relax a little. One of the great things about wearing all black, is if the fit is correct you don’t have to accessorize as much because it’s already a bold statement. You have to make sure the outfit you’re wearing fits your body correctly, if not you’ll look like the outfit overwhelms you and you’re beautiful shape won’t be defined. 

Hat: Target

Sweater: Target

Jeans: Forever21

Shoes: Old Navy

Jacket: Express

Bag: Target

OOTN 

I’ve been looking for a jacket like this for a long time. I finally found one for a good price in Express! Whenever I feel like my outfit is missing something, I add a third piece to it. It can be a vest or jacket but adding a third piece often completes my look. 

Jacket: Express

Shirt: H&M

Skirt:H&M

Boots: Payless

Friday Night

It’s a little cooler this weekend and I’m loving it. Hopefully the cooler weather is here to stay. Tonight I went out with my husband for his work. I wanted to be comfortable but presentable too. If you haven’t noticed, I like my sweaters to be oversized. Maybe it reminds me of being wrapped in a blanket.

Style Tip: rolling up a pair of skinny jeans right above an ankle boot can add edge to any outfit.

Sweater: Express

Jeans: Marshalls

Boots: Old Navy

Jacket: Express

Hat: Forever21

Necklace: Express

Printed Dress

I’m loving the prints H&M used for this Fall collection. They give off a 60s and 70s vibe that I love. I can’t wait to pair this dress with an opaque pair of tights for Winter but for now, I’m trying to squeeze as much use out of these gladiators. 

Hat: Old Navy

Dress: H&M

Shoes: ShoeDazzle

Necklace: Forever21
