If you look up ‘summertime’ in the dictionary, you will see ‘daisy dukes,’ ‘tank tops’ and ‘sandals’ as the definition. And while the less the better is my motto when I’m out in the Texas heat, sometimes, I want to dress it down and opt for comfort instead.

I’m big on joggers – I love wearing them at any time and anywhere, including in the middle of July! While it might be hot,
joggers work in any high degreed temperature and I’m sharing 3 ways that I wear mine in the summertime!

A Night Out

One thing I’m good for is pulling out some sweats and pairing it with a cute bodysuit and heels for a chilled night out look. One way to step out is by pairing your sweats with a denim chambray top and low heeled mules.

I finished my look with gold accessories that complimented the gold embellished hardware on my purse.

Day Time Hype

Summertime heat means you have to be ready for a dip in the pool at any time! I paired my sweats with an orange bikini top and wrapped my chambray denim top around the waist.

To complement the orange with a slight metallic contrast, I opted for my Rose Gold Nike Air Max’s.

Ms. 9-5

If you’ve never tried wearing sweatpants to work, then I’m here to help you! Lol. Depending on the fit, sweats can be perfect for the work place keeping you stylish and comfy. For this fit, I opted for these rich, burgundy sweats and paired it with a white button down top, finishing it with nude pumps.

Valentines Day is around the corner and whether you’re going to be boo’d up or sexy and single, like me, you still need to look good!

For some reason, finding something to wear for Valentine’s Day is the hardest thing ever! With so many options, it’s hard to narrow down the outfit for this big day! We’ll I’m here to help you out!

I’ve rounded up three things you can wear for Valentine’s Day. As long as you put your spin on it and exude confidence like the bad bihhh you are, then you’ll be beyond good!

Pearls For the Girls

Pearls aren’t just worn as jewelry anymore! For this special day, step out of the box and wear your pearls on your dress, blouse, jeans, or shoes. There’s no right or wrong way to rock pearls! If you want to keep it classic, stick with a string of pearls. If you’re aiming for a more romantic look, maybe opt for a pearl-adorned blouse and match it with fitted jeans and heels. Here a few of my favorite styles:

Hello Red

Red is obviously the color of love and if you want to match the theme, then opting for red is a way to go. The beauty of red is that any shade you go with will be perfect for this special day. You can rock your red in whatever way makes you feel bold and sexy. If you want to drop jaws, then maybe select a form-fitting midi or maxi dress. Want a more cute and flirty vibe? Lean towards a ruffled A-line or open back dress! Either way, you go, you’ll be sure to steal hearts all night!

Black to the Basics

Black is one of my all-time favorite colors! It screams class, power, and sex, three ultimate moods to exude for Lovers Day. A little black dress will always be a timeless option for a night out. You can keep it simple with a clean neckline, or spice it up a notch with sequins, mesh inserts pearls, or even feathers. If you plan on having a fun night out, show out with a pop of color in your heels, handbags, or jewelry to really stand out from the crowd.

Okay, snake print is officially my new favorite accent print. I have to admit, I didn’t really appreciate the beauty of snake print until I copped my own pair of booties not too long ago. I was looking for the perfect place to wear them and luckily, an invitation opened up!

I was able to go to an early screening of If Beale Street Could Talk, which was a completely beautifully written masterpiece. I love movies that are adapted from books because I love reading the book and comparing it to the film [yeah, I’m that person]! Since I haven’t read the book yet, I have nothing to compare the film too, but from what I saw, it definitely deserves all the awards and I hope they get them too!

Since Houston weather is so wishy-washy, I wanted to make sure that I wore something that would keep me warm, but something I could easily take off if I got too warm! I opted for My shirt, which is actually a dress, kept me pretty warm and comfortable throughout the movie. I paired it with fitted jeans and a cute monochromatic purse for a touch of color.

Any event that allows me to wear joggers out, I’m with it! What I love the most about joggers is that they can either be worn dressed up or dressed down and paired with a simple top, call for an instant outfit. I was able to rock my joggers at the Drake and Migos concert this past weekend. I knew I wanted to be comfortable, but I also wanted to be cute of course and appropriately dressed for the turn up I was going to be a part of.

I rocked some heather gray jogger sweats from Forever 21. F21 is one of my go-to shop spots because they offer a wide and pretty decent curvy selection for all of us thick queens out here. I usually am able to fit a 1x in F21 plus bottoms, but since I wanted a more relaxed fit for the concert, I went up a size!

I love monochromatic colors and usually opt for a white or black top, but this time, I wanted a pop of color so I rocked a baby pink brallette. The exact one I bought is sold out, but this one is a close second to mine. To complete the look, I wore an over-sized denim jacket and a blinged out choker. What I love about this outfit, is that it looks great with both sneakers, which my Fenty Puma’s looked bomb with this, or a cute pair of black open-toe heeled sandals.
