Some days I like to be as simple as possible. This day was no different. I wore a very plain plum dress, a black cardigan, and black wedges. I wanted to spruce it up just a tad, so I paired this outfit with patterned tights and a thick black belt around the waist. This particular pair of tights is my absolute favorite. I pray nothing ever happens to them because I’m not sure if I’d be able to buy the same pair again. I also wanted to add a bit of color to my face. Below I’m wearing my favorite lipstick, Covergirl’s Euphoria.
As you can see I don’t have any jewelry on, and it’s not because I don’t want to wear it. My earring holes have been damaged due to the heavy earrings I’ve been wearing. So, I’m giving my poor ears a break. Ladies, as much of a fashion trend it is to wear big heavy earrings, please take care of your earring holes by giving them a break from time to time. 🙂

Here’s the Fit of the Week! Pairing leggings with dresses really make for an awesome outfit. I wasn’t feeling very bright. So, I just wore dark colors. Not to mention it was raining, which made it one of those days. I was going to wear a pair of Ugg-style boots, but decided to go with the combat boots. I think the boots added a bit of flair to the outfit. I like combing different styles to complete an outfit. Although I didn’t want to wear any bright colors, I added color through my makeup. I think this is another way to add color to a dark/dull colored outfit.
Leopard Dress: Target
Combat Boots: Traffic
Skinny Belt: Unsure
I prefer sneakers over heels any day. With this outfit, I combined one of my favorite screened tees with my favorite type of sneakers thus creating a very comfortable, but trendy look.

Hey Tyla Times Fans! Here is the Fit of the Week.
I wore this outfit while in Atlanta for an early birthday celebration. I chose to accent with pink because of an outfit worn by Rasheeda on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. I like this outfit because it’s an old-school look, with a modern twist. I was completely comfortable, something that seems to be given up when dressing up for a night on the town (A bigger picture can be seen at Alltheparties.com).
