Casual Black Outfit With a Twist

Good Monday morning!! Who watched the Super Bowl?? I was watching the ID Channel while everyone else was watching the game. I usually make my “famous” taco dip but decided to fix a normal meal instead. Barry was not amused that I ripped away the appetizers for the game LOL!

Do you girls fix a lot of snacks and dips for the Super Bowl? I’m curious what you guys do. I’m good with a bag of chips and some dip, but these boys in this house want the full enchilada! They were really upset when they realized all they were getting was BBQ Chicken and a couple of sides. Better luck next time HA!

I decided to go really casual and comfy today, but try to put a twist on my outfit to make it appear dressier. I work in an office and we really don’t have a dress code, but I do try to wear our clothes as much as possible. Today I am styling two pieces from our Boutique that were big sellers and flew off the racks.

Let’s talk about these jeans first. These are Black KanCan Distressed Stretch Ankle Jeans, they have some raw cutting (ripped look) in them as you can see. I don’t mind wearing these around the house or running errands, but if I were going out to eat, I can easily slide black Cuddle Duds underneath so I don’t show skin, or to keep my legs warmer, browse them HERE. I bought these jeans in size 11 so they wouldn’t be skin tight when I wear them. I don’t know how you girls are, but I can’t take skin tight anymore. The more give in the pants the better I like them. These jeans have A LOT of give in the material, more than I thought they would – so they are comfortable like leggings! If you don’t like looser pants, get your regular size. You can check them out HERE.

The top I have on is a basic comfy T-shirt from The Loft, called the Refined Tee. This is a must-have in your wardrobe! You can utilize a good Tee in so many ways. Under a cardigan, a blazer, denim jacket or by itself. You can even wear this one with a skirt and a cute scarf to transition into Spring. It’s a dressier, sleeker material with some spandex in it, so it holds its shape. I don’t suggest drying these types of t-shirts. I hang mine to dry and they hold up great! Get the Tee HERE.

The cardigan…this cardigan was featured in a Fashion Show our local Women’s Club held back in the Fall and it was a total HIT with the women. Women loved this cardigan from 18 to 80, they all were asking about it. We featured it with jeans, but we also featured it with a knee length pencil skirt with booties and that look blew them all away.

This cardigan is by HELLO MELLO SIGNATURE SOFT CAREFREE THREADS LONG CARDIGAN that comes with MATCHING DRAWSTRING TOTE BAG. It has pockets too! Mine is a mint green, but it has speckles of black in it. This comes in a light gray and a charcoal/black also. It runs $29.99, fits true to size and has a 5-star rating on Amazon! It is a thinner cardigan, which is great for the workplace or transitioning into warmer weather. This will look cute with shorts and sandals too! I will do a post on that type of outfit a little later. I am pulling together some cute outfits for the Spring push!

The shoes I have on are the blush loafers from Sole Society, these have been featured in a previous post, to shop or browse these, click HERE

I chose minimal jewelry since it’s MONDAY! Mondays are so hard for me LOL! I loved this necklace for a few reasons, I love the bead color and I especially love that I can personalize my pieces! This is the Faceted Slate Necklace, it comes with a charm that you can personalize, I put a “B” on mine. BUT…I added another charm called the Gold Framed Medium Coin, I had it personalized with Mom – Wife – Boss on it. These charms can be added to other necklaces or bracelets if you choose. The possibilities are endless. If you decide to check out the site, make sure you shop from the party with my name on it. The Site is HERE.

I also wanted to add if you are browsing the website, let me know if there are pieces you’d like to see on me. A huge order is going in this month and I will have them in a few weeks. And I’d love to show you ladies what you really want to see.

I have to share one more thing, Lash Boost! I’ve been using this for about 3 months now and LOVE it! When I started going through the change of life, I literally had NO eyelashes. I didn’t have one tube of mascara in my bathroom – there was no use! No lashes – no need for mascara LOL! I used false eyelashes when I was going somewhere important, other than that – zilch! Check out my results below! Top picture, I do have mascara on.

I will never post something on my blog that I don’t stand 100% behind and I love showing you guys the results on me – the good, the bad, and the ugly!

Bottom pictiure was taken in AUgust of 2018, top picture was traken this month.

    Oh I can’t wait to see how you style this long cardigan with a pencil skirt! I would never have thought to put it with a skirt shorter then the cardigan. Anxious to see this style. Does the lash boost make your eyelashes “grow”? they look beautiful. My eyebrows are that way…getting to be nothing there. And yes…100% chance of coffee here too…everyday for that matter 🙂

      I busted out laughing at the coffee comment!!! Ha!!!! Yes, the lash boost makes them grow and your eyebrows!!! Mine are getting long and really full. My husband and me were in Lowes the other day and he was looking down at me while we were talking and said—WOW your lashes are long!! Score!!!! If he noticed-it’s truly working. And the pencil skirt with the long cardigan is cute as a button!! I will do that this week for you girls!!
