Style It Saturday With Michael Kors: Lazy Day

Sticky

January has always been my chill month. My time to relax after a hectic holiday season.

Basically, 31 lazy days.

But just because I’m taking it easy, that’s not an excuse to not be fashionable.

It’s Hoodie Season!!!

I practically live in hoodies three seasons out of the year.

This zippered Logo hoodie is perfect.

Sometimes you want to go out with no makeup on.

The oversized Berkshires are big enough to get by without mascara as well as carrying on the Logo theme.

The Georgie trainers with the Wedge heel give a touch of lux to the sporty look.

This pairing is a perfect example of balancing comfort and style.

Style It Saturday With Michael Kors: Easter at Home

Standard

This year there will be no Easter Services to dress up for, no egg hunts, no big family dinners.

But I believe we should still celebrate. Honor the true meaning of Easter. Aka Resurrection Sunday.

Because we WILL come back from all this madness.

I think we should put on our Easter outfits, goto our living rooms and watch an online Easter Service.

Video Chat with your extended family and friends.

Decorate your dinner table and go all out with a feast!

This Sequined Floral Lace Dress is perfect for Spring.

Once again the Keke Pump makes an appearance. This time in a Toffee Patent leather. It picks up the taupe slip underneath the dress.

When we can finally leave the house again I would add this Monogram Small Woven Clutch.

Staying at home doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable. Celebrate anyway!!

Since I ran out of pictures for my blogs my favorite Sweet Sales Associate Kristin loaned me a few she had taken. She has great taste and put together some great outfits!!

Style It Saturday With Michael Kors: Brighter Days Ahead

Standard

I know it’s hard to believe at the moment, but there’s always a rainbow after the storm. Always a light at the end of the tunnel. And brighter days ahead.

Fashion is my security blanket and I need it more than ever right now.

This outfit is the perfect one to focus on. It’s carefree, spring vibe give me hope.

The Crinkled Leather Moto Jacket was my inspiration, after seeing it on Kristen, my super sweet, stylish sales associate at the SouthPark Mall Michael Kors.

The Lavender Mist color is perfect for Spring and those cool summer nights.

Logo Mania is still trending and the bold Unisex Logo Tee was the perfect choice to go underneath.

I added the Flounce Denim Skirt for a fun, flirty look.

The Pebbled Leather Convertible Crossbody bag in the same Lavender Mist shade completes the look.

I own this bag in gold. It’s roomier than it appears and can be worn so many ways. This color will be next on my list.

Don’t lose hope right now. We WILL come out of the darkness. Brighter and more fashionable than ever!!!

Style It Saturday With Michael Kors: The Silver Lining

Standard

They say every cloud has a silver lining. That means we should keep hope alive and look for the positive things around us.

Fashion has always been my escape from reality so I figured I can’t be the only one to feel that way. So I decided to keep posting. Someone out there may need it.

I chose this weeks outfits weeks ago, not knowing what was in store for us.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love the CeCe Bag.

I’m attracted to bright shiny objects, much like my spirit animal, the Magpie.

So this version caught my eye and I decided to build on it.

The tweed of the Plaid Jacquard dress is a nice contrast to the metallic bag. I gave this classic design a bit of a twist.

Another favorite Michael Kors style, the Keke Pump, adds a ladylike elegance while tying in the pop of silver with the trim.

This too shall pass. And I hope everyone comes out of it healthy and fashionable.

Style It Saturday With Michael Kors: It’s Not A Bag, It’s A Baguette

Standard

Ever since Carrie uttered those words while being mugged in Sex and The City, I’ve loved the baguette bag style.

Last week I walked into the Michael Kors Store at SouthPark and there was my dream bag…

The Carmen Baguette.

She was exactly what I wanted. The 10.25 strap drop is the perfect length. The woven leather strap and the new logo clasp give a luxe feel to the bag.

I knew I had to style her.

Carmen works nicely dressed up or dressed down.

With that in mind I added the Logo Tape Mesh Joggers.

Throw on a pair of Palermo sunnies and you have the perfect errand running ensemble.

Whether you’re in Stilettos or Sneakers, Carmen will complete any outfit.

Style It Saturday With Michael Kors: Bye Bye Winter Blues

Standard

Denim is the perfect transition piece between any season.

This lightweight coated denim Cargo Jacket caught my eye as soon as I waked into the Michael Kors Store at SouthPark Mall. It’s perfect for layering and lightweight enough for cool summer nights.

I added the Delancey Medium Two Tone Logo Canteen Crossbody bag in Pale Blue and Navy.

I love the round bag trend. Michael Kors took it up a level with the braided chain trim.

I added my favorite shoe style, the Keke, in Washed Denim to complete the look.

Say goodbye to the winter blues with this denim on denim look from Michael Kors!

Style It Saturday With Michael Kors: Peaches and Cream

Standard

Coral is one of my favorite colors popping up in Spring Fashion this year. And Michael Kors is Blooming with this rich, peachy color.

I made a beeline toward this ’90s style hooded windbreaker. Lightweight and stylish, it’s perfect for Spring and can transition nicely for those cooler Summer nights.

I paired it with the Mercer Color Block crossbody bucket bag.

This bag is so trendy and versatile. Carry it by the handle, over your shoulder or crossbody.

I tied in the tan color from the bag with the Granger trek sneaker that’s made appearances in previous blogs. This shoe comes in several colors and adds a bit of ‘oomph’ with its platform sole and gold hardware.

Make your entrance into Spring stylish with these Michael Kors pieces!

Third Rock From The Sun

Standard
This past weekend we held our Third Annual Black Fathers Rock Awards Celebration. Each year has been bigger and better than the one before. The star studded afternoon was sold out over a week before the event and was filled with local celebrities and regular people, like me. I’ve graduated from mere blogger observing the event to being on the Committee and working behind the scenes. After a year of hard work, it was finally here. Eight awards were presented that afternoon. DAPPER DAD OF THE YEAR: The public was asked to vote on this award and the winner was announced during the event. Comedian Tone-X and Antwaun Cook both came through Dripping. It was a close vote with Cook taking home the award.

ACTIVIST OF THE YEAR:

Toussaint Romain, Esq came full circle that day. From presenting the same award to his friend Braxton Winston three years ago to receiving his own. This Civil Rights Advocate was recognized for his dedication and hard work in the community.

ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR:

Bless Spencer, founder of Way Up Basketball and Club Performance Charlotte, shares his Pro Ball skills with the community, building endurance and self esteem in the city’s youth.

PEOPLES CHOICE AWARD:

Rashamod Torrance, founder of Active Dad was overwhelmingly nominated for his work with changing the narrative of Black Fatherhood.

SURROGATE FATHER OF THE YEAR:

Watching Dennis Reed Jr receive this award brought joy to my heart. Especially seeing his face when he realized former Panther Jonathan Stewart was presenting it.

Dennis is one of my most treasured friends. I’ve seen first hand how much his ‘kids’ look up to him.

He has hundreds of children. Yet none of them are biological. They’re all part of his Community Program ‘Inspire The Fire’.

Jonathan Stewart is one of their biggest supporters. He knows how much Dennis means to them.

I’ve spent a lot of time with him and his kids. Dennis proves that a Father is not always blood related.

COMEBACK FATHER OF THE YEAR:

After being presented the award by his close friend Sport E. Odie, Charles Whitfield told the story of his fight to come back after a horrific accident. A fight fueled by his desire to continue being a father to his daughter.

SENIOR FATHER OF THE YEAR:

Willie Ratchford proved that Senior doesn’t mean old. Distinguished, knowledgeable, experienced… these are all words that can easily take the place of the title Senior.

FATHER OF THE YEAR:

Dr. Stacy Lemay is well deserving of this. Hearing his children speak about him as they presented him with his award just confirmed what the community already knows. The Pastor is passionate about family and believes being a good father starts with loving the child’s mother.

I believe a Ninth award is needed to bestow up on our beloved founder Ryan Jor El.

Without his vision none of this would have taken place.

Seeing men grateful for the recognition that no one has ever given them is heartwarming. Ryan has given them much more than an award to place upon their shelf. He’s given them validation.

To Ryan, the award winners, and black fathers around the world…you ROCK!!!

A special thank you to Fin & Fino for providing the venue, our host for the event, the sponsors and my fellow committee members who made this event outshine the Sun!
