Blue Stripes & Plaid

So, let me tell you...

Looking back at these pictures, I'm crushing on this monochromatic blue outfit combination. The mix of stripes and plaid print coupled with the light wash denim gave this look the right amount of edge. I've said it before, but I'm a sucker for stripes so when I saw this limited edition asymmetrical band top from Banana Republic, my heart skipped a beat. I love the off the shoulder band detail. You may start to soon notice (and currently on my Instagram), that I have a slight obsession with off the shoulder things. Even if it's not meant to be worn off the shoulder, at some point I might make it be just that. Especially now that it's getting warmer, I'm keeping an eye out for the trend. So the fact that this top incorporates my favorite detail in a unique way, I'm totally loving it. I decided to pair the striped top with BR's menswear inspired plaid trousers. I love the versatility of this pant. You can dress them up for the office, or you can dress them down (mid-way) like I did with this look. Now that I'm getting older I appreciate having variety in my pant selection, I always love a good pair of jeans, but having a nice trouser to wear makes me feel a bit more sophisticated. Sometimes I want to just put on my big girl pants and roll. And I can totally do that with these trousers from BR.

Here For The Pizza.

Marquise C Brown - Honey In My Heels
So, let me telll you...

A little fun fact about me. I'm typically always craving pizza, pasta, burger and fries, you know, all of the unhealthy stuff. So during the week, I like to eat really healthy (and workout) so that on the weekends I can eat all of my junk food, guilt free! It's one of my favorite weekend things to do. Another one of my favorite things to do is DIY's, like these jeans that I did in January. I haven't had much time lately to do anymore (most of my DIYs are impromptu) but wearing these jeans again this past week makes me want another pair. (Maybe in a darker wash this time?) Although I loved this light wash with this graphic t, those two coupled with a pair of my grandmother's old earrings, I was really into this look.

 Happy Friday, I hope you have a great weekend! I know I will. In case you didn't get it from my shirt, I'm only here for the pizza. Pepperoni - pineapple, please! Also if you're going to Coachella, dance one out for me! :P

BR Spring

So, let me tell you...

Continuing on the same note from my last post. Here's another spring gingham print from Banana Republic, this time in the classic sheath dress style! Not only because of the bold print, (which I'm starting to think that my closet needs more of) but also because of the fit, I'm really into this gingham print dress! The fabric has a nice amount of stretch to it which I really appreciate in any form fitting dress. It makes the dress comfortable, moveable and more flattering because it can hug your curves in all the right places. This print and style is one that can be worn on various occasions: work, date night, Easter Sunday... I styled it here with an old long scarf that I had, but it also looks really cute with a denim or leather jacket. Minor detail, but a notable one for me, the shoulders come equipped with a little holster for your bra straps so they're not popping out when you're leaning in to take those Easter Sunday pictures. (not just specifically Easter pictures, but you know what I mean) I don't know about you, but it's the little things like that that I appreciate in hindsight. Also, it's currently on sale!

Gingham Style

So, let me tell you...

Growing up in a relatively conservative home with a mother who wears a lot of suits, I've grown to accumulate a few myself. Yet, nothing quite as notable and as exciting as this gingham print suit from Banana Republic's spring collection. This blazer and pant puts a few of my existing suits to a boring shame. There is something vivacious about a gingham print suit for that women on the go - which speaks volumes to who she is. With a style so bold it's nothing short of an eye-catching ensemble. Slide over traditional black and blue suit sets, something a little more fun is moving in this season.

P.s. This pant is the same Avery cut as the pants from the last post. Also, I did a mix match styling with this blazer for another look, so stay tuned for that!

Until next time!

Avery, Mid-Rise & Cropped

Marquise C Brown - Honey In My Heels-001.jpg

So, let me tell you...

I had the opportunity to partner with Banana Republic styling a few of their spring styles. I love a nice mid-rise cropped pant not just for spring, but all year around. Having long legs and finding the perfect pair of cropped pants to my liking has proven to be a bit of a challenge for me - with the exception of Banana Republic's Avery pant. They are my ideal cropped pant length. They aren't too short, they aren't too long, they're juuust right. (Goldilocks and Three Bears anyone?) The straight fit and the mid-rise length makes them easy to wear with a pair of booties, flats, or sneakers. One of the factors that I appreciate about the fit of BR's pants in general, including this one, is the comfortability. I've been on the go a lot more lately and comfort is always key. I styled this look for brunch, pairing the pants with a plain white t-shirt and my white BR blazer from last spring. To add a little pop I put on my go-to leopard print sandals a patent leather belt and my rose gold crossbody bag.

P.s this look is one of many in collaboration with Banana Republic, so keep an eye out here and on my Insta for more!

Ring My Bell... Sleeves

So, let me tell you...

Last month was such a blur and here we are well into March. I could tell you all the things that I've been doing that have kept this busy bee from updating the site, but I won't now - I'll save that for another time. But, if you aren't already, you should follow me on Insta for daily updates. :)

With that said, onto this multicolored bell sleeve top from SheIn. I didn't want to take off. I was looking for things to do this day, just to keep it on. haha. Have you ever done that? This top is just so fun! A lively intro to spring with the mix of bright colors. I love the contrasting multicolored sections. And the bell sleeves are everything. I could have gotten a small which would have been a little more fitted, but I went with a medium instead so that the sleeves would hang a bit more on me. For a bit of edge, I paired the top with these faux leather bermuda shorts that I got on sale way back when. This was actually my first time wearing them. When I got them, I thought they were a great idea, but until this top, I couldn't figure out what to wear them with. I finished the look with a pair of white pumps for an extra splash of color. A somewhat unexpected pairing for myself, but I've been feeling particularly bold these days Why the heck not. Right!? 

I hope you have a great weekend!

Men's Camo Print Jacket

So, let me tell you...

Another bomber jacket added to the collection, except this one is straight out of the men's section. Truth be told I wasn't even looking for a jacket when I snagged this camo print number from Forever 21. But, it just so happened to be on sale at the time, plus I've been wanted a camo jacket for a bit. (SCORE!) I love the embroidery on the back as well as the fit. When buying from the men's section, depending on the item, I typically purchase the smallest size so that the fit is likened to my actual size in womenswear. However, I didn't do that with this jacket - instead of getting a small, I got a medium so that the jacket would hang a bit more. I've been really into oversized jackets as of late, and this one fits right in.
