What Would Derria Wear?: On Her Birthday!

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!

Backstage Pass.

My goal this summer is to attend a few concerts. I have not been to a concert since maybe 2011-2012. I saw my auntie Erykah Badu in Greensboro during GHOE. Great show, but that was so long ago.

So sad I wasn’t able to do blog photos this past weekend but I still had one look in the chamber for y’all so I had to pull it out! Now you may remember this Tulle nude dress from my NYFW look. You can do so much with these tulle pieces I suggest you make your way to your nearest F21.

It was love at first sight when I laid eyes on this metallic pencil skirt. I immediately knew how I wanted to style it and it all came together with the other pieces.

Admit One: Band Tee Style Series Part Three

Last but certainly not least Part Three to my Band Tee Style Series is my favorite look of the week. I’ve been sitting on this look for couple weeks and I couldn’t wait for the opportunity to shoot it. My metallic skirt is the TRUTH..okay! Even though I did pay more than I wanted for it ($70), I quickly gave ASOS my coins when it was restocked. Paired with a Forever 21 Men’s band tee and some leopard printed booties made for perfect Band Tee Style! I honestly want to know how you style your band tees, let me know and tag #BandTeeStyleSeries on IG! Outfit details below:

Admit One: Band Tee Style Series Part Two


You’d never believe me if i told you that I’ve been sitting on the items worn in this post for a few months now… but its the honest truth. I have a habit of buying really cute items and waiting sometimes weeks and months for the right time to wear or blog it. First things first you need at least one pair of thigh high boots in your wardrobe, you can wear them any season just about. Grab a open-toe pair for the Summer and a closed toe pair for the Fall/Winter months. I randomly snagged mine from Windsor¬†online late this summer for really reasonable price.

Band Tees have been one of the most purchased items in my wardrobe within the past few months.

This is part one of my three part Band Tee Series showing how I like to style my tees.
