The cold temperatures outside can really ruin it for me when it comes to my ideal outfits. In the summer, I can throw on any outfit and be out the door. But when it cold……lawd….. I have to do strategic planning. Probably the only time I ever watch the news, to get a sorta kinda maybe accurate temperature and weather for the next day. I love satin (because its kind of “thing/trend” now) but satin in the cold weather… can be quite chilly. Especially satin shirts for me because I rarely wear bras.
I put together some little one/twos on how I dress in satin in the frigid cold. And frigid cold to me is like anything under 65. What can I say I live in the South.
The Satin Shirt
I freaking love this look! It’s cool. It’s bad ahh. To me, the boots really set it off. I layered the satin shirt with a contrasting leather jacket. The satin shirt looks like a pajama top. The satin shirt also has a white trim on the buttons and sleeves. I paired the shirt with a pair of Calvin Klein white ankle jeans.
The Satin Pants
Helllllo splits! I paired these satin pants with a t-shirt and my favorite black boots. I wear these black boots rain, sleet, snow or sun. You can see in my previous post how much I love them. Also, summer, spring, winter, fall. I have an unhealthy obsession with these boots. Anyways, I wanted to link these satin pants with a graphic tee to contrast from the sophisticated look I could have gone for.
The Satin Dress
Le Satin dress (in my terrible french accent lol). I paired the satin dress with an oversize shirt and my fave boots. I did camo print for the oversize to showcase that I’m being chic but I am kind of hard core as well.
Sooooo lately I have been getting a lot of likes on IG (instagram) when I post my fits. I went from literally 20 likes to over 100 likes. That is a big significant difference for me. I was excited so I continued to post more outfits. Not only did the likes increase but so did my followers. (Tear). I’m moving up in the cyber world. My dream is to be a well renowned fashion blogger. A girl can dream but I know it took baby steps.
I decided to create a blog post of my best fits in April according to IG. This is the first I have created a post like this. I thought it would be interesting plus I have seen other bloggers create monthly post of all of their fits. I will sort my fits based on the likes I got on IG. I will give a little detail about the clothes and where I was going.
First up, the outfit I wore to the Jerry Lewis club on Beale. This is romper I got from Windsor. First time wearing this fit. I thought it looked okkkk but I got a lot of compliments. The shoes are from Zooshoo. I only paid $10 for them!!!!!
Next, the fit I wore to the rooftop. Another romper, of course. I love how my tat just stands out. I got the romper from Windsor. I know what you are thinking I love Windsor. Lol. You can see my F21 body. I thought it added a little sex appeal being that it was mostly adult adults who adult everyday….. you know what I mean. I have no idea where I got the shoes from but they are red.
To me this is my fave outfit. It’s freaking cute! I was downtown on a Sunday with my friends. We suppose to go see a ballet but we forgot the tickets so yeahhh. I got the dress from American Apparel and the shoes for Rue 21.
All denim down. Even my shoes! Except the bra. I love this outfit because it was thrown together and turned out perfect. I was at this bar called Tin Roof on Beale. Nice place btw. The entire outfit is F21 but the jacket. I got that from the thrift.
Last but not least. The white tee outfit. I was going out with selected friends to a bar for my birthday. I had an awesome time besides the guy who was stalking me. Dress from f21, boots papaya, hat from love culture.
Phugitivs are all over the place whether they are causing good or harm in a fashion state. I had the pleasure of meeting such individual whose music and sense of style goes hand and hand. Who is this individual you might ask? Seth D.
Hailing from ATL, his music is dope and so is his style. I’m not just saying this because I featured him on my site and met him but I am telling the truth. I listened to a few of his songs and found myself walking around thinking I was baddest bih in the office. Especially his song Tommy Hilfiger. I was like yassssssss “my skin is so cinnamon”!!!!! He also has a new album out titled Love Made Me Do It. Inspired by love so you already know the Click Here to check out the new album. After listening to his songs, I wanted to meet this slaying artist.
A really good friend of mines just released a book. I cannot remember the date it was released but I do know it was recent. (my memory is horrible. Talk about following your dreams! He had his first book signing on Sunday.The book is called Mosaic Journey: Pieces of Me. The book is an article of creative poems which Stedmond, my friend, put together. I read one poem called Place in the Sun. I felt some type of way because the poem so deep I had to read it twice. The poem made me look into my life and try to discover how can I find my tranquil setting in my place in the sun. I started thinking like OMG I need to get my life together. That poem is my fave.
I think all the poems in the book are relatable to anyone thats what I enjoyed most about the book. When you read any book and you can paint a vivid picture in your mind that is the best. Stedmond accomplished that in his book. The book signing was chill and laid back. I went with my friend Nick. I must say we went on a mosaic journey driving to the book signing. The book signing was in Greenwood, MS. There are alot of small towns in Mississippi. Alot of grass, farm animals, and plains. It was smooth ride though. It took us about 2 hours to get there. I took my dog, Sandy, as well. She did not like being in her kennel most of the drive. She was so well behaved until we got there but thats another story. I did not mind the drive it was only 2 hours and me and Nick got to catch up although we talk everyday. When arrived to Greenwood, we got lost of course because even with GPS I always get lost. We did eventually find it. His family and friends were extremely nice especially his mom. The refreshment were good especially the lemonade. Shout to the person who made the lemonade. The overall event and trip were great! First time I ever been to a book signing so it was good first time experience. Check out the experience below!
P.S. Check out the book on Amazon by clicking the logo below

I had to go to my homie Flowso listening party which was hella chill! The entire album was amazing. Not even over exaggerating. My fave songs were backseat lovers, love my haters, freedom, and I forgot the name of the other one. I really enjoyed everything. The listening party was at club Love which was really nice. That was my first time in Love. The club was nice and I enjoyed the atmosphere…..honestly better than what I expected.
This was me early Tuesday LOL trying to find something to wear. Sad part about it is I did not wear anything on my bed.
I wish I had a Clutch shirt I could worn to the event. Majority of the people had on the shirt. I slick felt left out because everybody had on a shirt. I want a black and white so I can match it with again. The line is dope! Go check out the site www.clutchclothingcollection.com
This is the outfit I ended up wearing. Sheer beige body suit from F21, black satin pants from Urban, Demin pointed toe heels from Akira. I almost did not wear a bra but I still did because you know how people in the south are…. Anyways I wore a bra. The outfit was hella cute to me because that was my first time wearing the bodysuit. I loved pinning my hair up as well to give a sort of professional look.
I brought my friend Brent along with me and he loved it just as much as I did. Our fave song is back seat lovers. I couldnt relate to it but he could. LOL. The song playing in the background is back seat lovers I believe. Flowso voice is so amazing when he sing. I almost said heyyyyy instead of heyy when I saw him if you know what I mean. He is just a friend soooo yeah. LOL.
Of course I had to get a drink. They had 2 for 1 special. I got amaretta sour which is a really good!…..really good although I didnt get drunk but the music made my drinks wayyyy better.
I highly recommend that everyone listen to Flowso because the guy is dope. In my opinion, he has a different sound. He does not rap about the typical drugs and gangbanging like how some Memphis rappers do. Check out his latest single “I Been” featuring Tom Skee Click Here In addition, go take a look at my previous post about Flowso from earlier this year.
