For the last 13 years of my life I have battled cystic acne. 13 Years is an awful long time to not have clear skin and believe me I was on the verge of giving up.
The phrase Welcome To LA has been one of those phrases not only used by folks I’ve encountered over the last 9 days but a phrase that Ive used towards myself after encountering some setbacks the last few days.
I’ve been talking about the Paper Bag Waist Trend for a few months now and I was just finally able to find a pair that I really liked.
It’s my 28th Birthday and I’m so blessed and thankful for how far I’ve come!
If you asked what I would be doing this year for my 28th birthday back in December I would have probably said that I was going to be out of the country with my friends. But… instead I’m moving across the country by myself with no friends or family. Talk about a leap of faith. This is the second biggest milestone of my life so I am trying to stay positive and not be too nervous about this HUGE move.
So much to prepare for… looking for a new job, buying new furniture and also finding new restaurants to try and new places to explore. New memories to create in the Year of 28. This is my year of INCREASE. Increase in wealth, health, happiness and love.
In the midst of going through this huge move I was able to do more outfit shoots. This look is one of my favorites. The Who What Wear Collection is definitely one of my favorite collections in Target. There are always some really cute items that would be perfect in any woman’s wardrobe so don’t sleep on them.
The bulk of my look is from the new Who What Wear Collection, jacket and skirt. Cute right!? Both were priced under $40. Paired with a grommet cut off band t-shirt and one of my favorite and most comfortable pairs of Steve Madden heels. Check out more outfit details below!

When it comes to What Derria Would Wear… I keep it simple… and Chic!
If you haven’t already noticed I love clothes and when it comes to styling my looks for outfit posts there are times I want to put my edgy style out there but there are also times that I keep it simple yet chic. Its really important to me to have a well rounded wardrobe. So even on my chill days I’m still stylishly chic.
As you may know I am relocating from North Carolina to Los Angeles this month and it has been very tough trying to pack up all my clothes in boxes and also in suitcases. It clear I wont have access to my clothes all at one time so I’m currently going through everything and choosing pieces that I can wear multiple ways until I get everything in the mail. Talk about stressed. I know it wont be too bad though.
Below is a look that can be worn Three different ways.
Look #1: As an oversized dress by itself with my Comme Des Garcon x Converse sneakers. (or any neutral sneaker)
Look #2: Pictured below with the dress and denim skirt layered to provide an edginess.
Look #3: Skirt tied up or draped over the denim skirt. Each look can give different vibes.
