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.

Combat Boots: Traffic
Skinny Belt: Unsure
There are some days that I just don’t feel like getting all fancy, so I don’t. However, I don’t dress down, I just accessorize things that I feel more comfortable rather than flashy in. This is what I did here. A jean jacket can spruce up an otherwise dull outfit. Since I’m not wearing a flashy outfit, I wanted my accessories to be in the spotlight. I wore a multi-green statement necklace, an olive-green ring, gold-colored earrings, and I rocked sandals that are the same color as a set of beads in my necklace. There will be days that you don’t feel like doing too much as far as your wardrobe. On those days, try to spruce up your outfit with loud speaking jewelry. It can make all the difference.

Let me start off by saying that I am no fashion guru. I am familiar with different brands, fabrics and trends, but I am no expert. For the past few years, I’ve been putting more effort into my wardrobe and how I dress myself. Some may not be aware of this, but what you decide to put on every morning, speaks volumes. When people look at me, I want them to know that I take pride in my appearance. I haven’t always been so keen on my appearance. It has been a progression. Nowadays, I try to embrace my own personal style without falling victim to too many trends.
With that said, I want to share an outfit a week with my readers. I hope that my wardrobe will provide some inspiration to those who need it. There was a time that I was looking to others for a fashion sense, but eventually, I found my own.
I have to add this disclaimer before I talk about my outfit below. I am in no way a baller; I recycle my closet often, sale shop and go thrifting. However, I found that since I lost weight, I’ve had to shop a little more. With that said, you’re able to dress well with minimal money and with the things you already own.
