Ootn: Weekend Greatness pt.2

Even tho I did go to my assembly, I did have other plans on the side as well. Two birthday functions, one of which was my cousin's, that I literally had no choice but to go (my life was threatened on both, LOL). Had an amazing time and worked the bodycon to the max!  

(So I messed up the picture, I'll just identify the outfits by dress color)

So the burgundy dress was worn on Friday. I cant tell you how long I've been wanting to wear this dress. I bought it last December for my birthday! Yup, that many months ago. Judge me! When my friend invited me I already put in my head that was wearing! When I put it on I loved it, but I wanted it to be a little different. It seemed very plain. Being that my hair wasn't dry, I had no choice to put it in a puff. so everything came to compliment my hair. I also tried to work in my nude lip combo but I didn't think that idea all the way through. (Story for  another day..)

Now the simple black dress, had me on confidence OVERLOAD!! I was too in love with how it all came together. Don't get me wrong I loved my Friday night dress, that Saturday night though...YES! My cousin wanted us to wear all black. Being my somewhat rebellious self , I couldn't do head to toe black. So not Bee! The leopard wedged came in handy times a thousand. Then guess what... MY HAIR WAS DRY!!! The bigger the hair, the better. :) It was all dandy from there. 

... Well minus the fact that I forgot about the time change and didn't get home until 3:45 a.m. and had to be up at 5 :(

xo, my darlings!!

Ootd: Weekend Greatness pt.1

Over the past weekend, I attended an assembly. I've been going to these events for years (possibly before I was even born). I knew I had to be presentable of course but this time I felt different. I felt so grown up! 

It was two days. The outfit on the left was on Saturday. The outfit on the right is from Sunday. I felt amazing in these pieces. I was able to concentrate and my confidence was off the charts. Hair, outfit, accessories, it all came together to make something so great. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!! 

Most of the pieces I already had. The skirt and shirts were the only new items that I bought.

Hey! When you look good, you feel good right?

Saturday's Outfit:  
Skirt and Shirt: H&M
Blazer: BCX (Macy's, old)
Shoes and Jewelry: Love Culture

Sunday's Outfit:
Skirt (red) and Shirt: H&M
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
(blazer and jewelry info is the same)

Mia, Oh Mia: Style Crush

Now this post is a little different than what I usually do. Usually I come on, show an outfit or celeb outfit, say some words and let you read it LOL. BOOM! I'm doing pretty OK with that so far. This post includes part of that as well as recognition, inspiration, and a THANK YOU!

Everyone meet Mia!

Life & Style: Inside My Glam-Aholic Lifestyle Part II

(Now if you know her. Great and you should know. If not, you're going to learn today.)

Mia is the creator of one of my favorite blogs Confessions Of a Glam-Aholic. I even give her credit for Stylish Proportions because she is one of the reasons why this blog is here. I've been following Mia for at least a year (or maybe more) and I have honestly appreciated her so much.

Recently, Mia did a mini series of videos, Inside My Glam-Aholic Lifestyle. Y'all *my country accent*, when I say I felt like I could do ANYTHING (after watching) ... I mean every word. Mia let's you in and gives so much encouragement  to do whatever it is that you want! 

After watching, I felt like I could swim from California to Africa. I just felt that It couldn't have came at a better time. We all need encouraging words. We just need positivity, period!

I usually call her "Auntie Mia"! That's because she's so down to earth, so inspiring, I just feel that she is part of my family! I love those connections; it does the heart so good! To feel it thousands of miles away, I see it as something pretty wonderful. I look up to her.

So Thank you, Auntie Mia, for the push to keep pushing. Thank you for being open and down to earth. Thank you for being MY role model (through style and greatness). Just thank you, I cant say it enough!

xo. "Niece Bee" :)

Hello my darlings!

Yes I have been on a very brief hiatus but hey life happens ...

I wanted to bring you an outfit that I wore a few days ago:

I was feeling myself a whoooooooooooole lot that day LOL. Can you tell? This particular day I was in a great mood and had things handle before as well as after work. I wanted to be comfortable but very stylish and cool. This worked out perfectly.

I'm in denim! Yay! I actually found a pair to fit my legs. That's another exciting thing. My big hair was just the icing on the cake! *thumbs up*
