One of the good things about working in corporate retail is the infamous sample sale a.k.a grab and bag, where you basically get clothes and shoes and accessories for FREE. I normally just go for the scarves, but this time I actually lucked up on some good clothing items including this super soft knit skirt! 

My bag on the other hand is not from a sample sale. It's Dooney & Bourke and I highly recommend it. The color is to die! Get yours HERE

I'm not going to say I was dying for this Prabal Gurung for Target skirt like so many other bloggers. In fact, the only reason I bought it is because it was on clearance for $8 and my weakness is a good deal. But I like bright colors and I am all about the pattern mix, so I'm happy I got. Not mention, it also works perfectly with my Diesel heels, BUT I'm just not sure how else I would wear it. Suggestions?

By the way, if FELA hasn't been to your area yet, please go see it! It is visually stunning and the music, my God the music. You will not be able to sit still in your seat. I promise

I am officially the coolest aunt. I let my nephews photobomb me while I'm trying to be serious and take blog pics, and then I turn around and shoot hoops with them...IN HEELS. Anything for my boys, anything :) 

P.S. This is the outfit that landed me a spot in ESSENCE nearly 2.5 years ago!

wearing: zara blazer & heels, urban outfitters zebra blouse (SIMILAR), topshop pants, (LOVE THESE) cynthia rowley sunnies

Yikes! I'm not totally sure where my camera is. I have a good idea, but until I can get to it, I thought I'd share some shoe snaps via my INSTAGRAM. Are you following me? 

And speaking of followers, thanks to everyone who entered the iPod giveaway! The lucky winner is SING OF SING'ATURE STYLE! As I told her, it could not be going to a more loyal follower. She reads and comments on nearly every single one of my posts. Thanks girlie!
