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!

Jersey Sure!- Integrating Athletic Wear in your Wardrobe

I sure could use a vacation on the shore of somebody’s beach, but until then I’ll envision myself in a bikini with my jersey cover-up.

Better yet lets talk about how Athletic wear is making its way into the wardrobes of many. A few years back I was thrift shopping at my local Goodwill and saw a pair of baseball pants and two random football/basketball jerseys. I didn’t know what I would use them for just yet but I forecasted that they would eventually be a trend. I used the pants for a shoot about two years ago that I paired with a crop top and a vintage Letterman jacket.

SlimShady.

The last few weeks have been such…. they’ve been up and down for me. I have been fasting from sweets, red meat and pork since June 1st. Whew just know.. Sweets are my kryptonite. I love cup cakes, gummy bears, doughnuts… you name it. So you know its been tough. But through all of that God provided me with the clarity I needed on a few situations that had been lingering and I’m grateful. Mini Full disclosure moment… but on to the clothing!

Draped in Stripes.

Vertical stripes definitely are my new thing, I could definitely use more of a taller and slimmer look. The stripes I’ve worn in this post and my previous post have done just that.

Prim&Proper.

Pinstripe & structured tops are my absolute favorites of the season. Every chance I get to buy something unique I jump on it especially if its a good price. I’ve found that stores like Marshall’s, Tj Maxx and & Charlotte Russe carry some of the nicer more affordable tops and bottoms and are somewhat “slept on”. Which is fine with me because those are stores I frequent and leaves more for me!

No Thanks!

Im back! I took a brief hiatus. Its such a struggle working full time and having a passion for other things outside of work. If you have a business or a blog I know you feel where I am coming from.  But I’m not complaining whatsoever, because I love being busy. If I’m not at work then I am shopping for myself or my clients which keeps life interesting.

BackToTheFuture.

It’s 12 am Wednesday morning… and I’m drawing a blank. Have you ever just felt so drained by everything? With work, blogging and keeping up with loved ones, I feel like I’m 5 different women and they are all tired.

In Living Color.

I was so excited that I was able to snag this skirt from the Victoria Beckham x Target collection for $17! Patience is the key! Because the line was very affordable to begin with, my frugal butt wanted it to be even cheaper because I am a Sale rack shopper… nothing wrong with that. So abut two weeks after the launch, Target marked the line down and then they marked it down again a week later. It’s like they want it out the store. So guess what?? Im helping them. I also snagged two other skirts that I can maneuver for work and play.

Adam’s Family.

I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color. There’s never a wrong time to wear all black in my book. Even in 90 degree weather you’ll attract heat but you’ll look damn good doing it. My brother said this look had Adams’s family vibes and I instantly felt that vibe and wanted to serve the attitude to go with it.

Pinky’s Pt 2

Pink is not my favorite color whatsoever. But it seems like this year I’ve turned a new leaf and introduced more and more pink into my wardrobe. I guess that’s exciting considering the fact that the items are dope or just serve as a foundation in wardrobe.
