You’ve got to own at least one maxi cardigan!

Dolan Gray Left Coast Open Maxi Cardigan from Anthropologie

I bought this Left Coast maxi cardigan last year from Anthropologie and it has become one of my favorite cardigans. It’s extremely comfortable with a lot of stretch. It’s truly a great piece. When I walk it floats so smoothly. I have to admit I feel pretty amazing when I put it on.

While getting dressed I started with the maxi cardigan. That led me to the tank, then the skirt, scarf, socks, shoes, and finally necklace. I basically played off of each item’s color. This look is about comfort and texture.

You can dress it up or dress it down. If I’m not heading out it becomes the perfect lounge cardigan for days of pure relaxation. It’s a must have cardigan in my book.

Mustard Cable Knit Sweater & Polka Dots!

 I was only supposed to buy a new planner at Target but as soon as I walked in, I headed straight to the women’s clothing section. It didn’t take long before I spotted this mustard cable knit sweater. Mustard is one of my favorite colors to wear. I managed to scoop this bad boy for $6! This justifies not sticking to my shopping list right?

 After a few days of fun in the sun, Charlotte, NC quickly reminded us that it was not quite time to break out our shorts and tank tops. Cold weather makes me want to put on a chunky sweater. I decided to wear my most recent purchase from Target. I chose to layer the mustard sweater with my polka dot chiffon top paired with my favorite distressed jeans and wingtip flats. I accessorized with a green cross-body bag, pearls, a few bracelets, and a red lip. To control the fro’ I tied my hair with an animal print scarf.

Dear bloggers, Why do you blog?

Walk in clothes with clothes and shoes

While browsing through a few WordPress articles the other day I stumbled across one titled, “First Steps with WordPress.” The article did a good job familiarizing beginners with WordPress functions and layouts. As I read further in the article I came across a set of questions. It made me think about heranyx.com. My focus and purpose behind creating this blog in the first place. It inspired me to write this post. I want to share my thoughts with you so, here are the  questions along with my answers. Read and enjoy them!

1. What am I going to do with this? 

I’m going to use this blog to shake things up in the fashion world

2. Who is going to read this?

You, because you’re willing to listen and you’re intrigued by things past the surface

3. What kind of information will I be posting?

It’s fashion from my point of view. My passion, my journey, my thoughts & my visions

4. Why am I doing this?

I view things differently so, I want you to see where I’m coming from. Fashion is my outlet to express myself. It’s not just about the clothes. It’s about creative freedom. It’s about the visions in my head and finding ways to bring them to you. And sometimes I can’t find the words to help you understand. So, I paint pictures through my clothes, through my camera, and through other people. I’m doing this because this is who I am. There’s a story to tell and there’s a new light to share with the world.

5. Who am I doing this for?

I’m doing this for me and for you… the passionate, ambitious, & creative souls

6. How often am I going to be posting and adding information?

I promise not to force a post.  I believe in quality over quantity. I write when I’m inspired, I take pictures when I have a vision, and I post when I have something to share with the world.

***

Now, it’s your turn. Leave a comment below introducing yourself and your blog, then answer the questions above. Feel free to answer all the questions or just a few. It’s still early in the New Year of 2013 and this is a great exercise for you & your blog! I look forward to hearing your thoughts & checking out your blog!

Floral Denim Shirt & Aztec Oxfords

It was a beautiful Thursday. Not that any day isn’t beautiful but to have the sun shine after a few days of cold winds and gloomy skies… Thursday was a beautiful day. So, before heading in to work, I decided to take a few pictures of my outfit of the day (OOTD).

Before I get dressed I tend to stand in my closet looking back and forth at my clothes until I get a vision. Floral Denim shirt, yellow cardigan, distressed jeans, and Aztec oxfords. That was the vision.

It’s always fun to wear something bright with denim shirts especially if you’re bottom is denim. You can wear a scarf or a statement necklace, a t-shirt underneath with a few buttons open, or you can layer with a sweater or cardigan.

The next time your pulling an outfit play around with colors and prints. Black & white prints are easy to pair with colors so, start with that if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Be inspired by the pieces in your closet and feel good about what you put on. Confidence will always complete your look!

My New Job Promotion!

You know that job promotion I told you about a few posts ago? Well, let’s talk specifics. I began working at Gap in July and in September I got promoted. I am now the Women’s Stylist for Gap at SouthPark Mall in Charlotte, North Carolina! As exciting as that is, there’s more. I manage the Gap SouthPark Instagram (@Gap_SouthPark) and I am currently creating a blog for my store. I am beyond excited for this opportunity. Everything is new and it couldn’t have been at a more perfect time. The blog will be launching soon and I’m very anxious but patience is a very important part of this process.

Gap SouthPark Blog Shoot

Since I’m being specific, I might as well tell you that I was on Good Morning Charlotte (WBTV) in October. They were doing a segment on the Simon Fashion Show, a fashion show that takes place at SouthPark Mall, and I got a chance to showcase a look from our store. It was my first time on the news and it so happened to be a live segment. I’m glad I did pretty well because it was no room for a second take.

Hand to Heart Center for NYE!

I have to enter the NEW YEAR harnessing good energy and a positive attitude. This year I wanted to participate in something peaceful and mentally stimulating. I told my friend that I would be hand to heart center for New Year’s Eve (a prayer position in yoga). He probably thought I was joking, but I was too serious. I started attending yoga classes a few months ago and was thrilled to find out that there was a special New Year’s Eve class at 8th Street Studio in Charlotte (talk about speaking it into existence). It was everything in one… meditation, chanting, asanas, self-reflection, and more.

Of course I attended and I have to admit it was pretty amazing! 10pm to midnight. A solid two hours of good energy. It was a great way to start 2013.During the session we were instructed to participate in two writing activities. One, was a letter that we wrote to ourselves about what 2013 would be like. The plan was that the instructors would mail our letters back to us some time in the new year of 2013. The second activity consisted of us writing down a list of things that we wanted leave behind in 2012. Five minutes shy of midnight everyone set their list to flames… literally. It was a good feeling watching those pieces of paper burn.

We can’t undo the things in our past, but we can learn from them and move forward. Everyday that you’re given is a new day. To see a NEW YEAR is a blessing! I felt good as I left the studio. I felt it in my spirit. It was a similar feeling that I felt last year, but much more profound. I’m thankful for the year 2012. It revealed another level of who I am. Now, I look forward to the year 2013!

peace, love, & prosperity!

 

How did you spend your New Year’s Eve? What do you plan on leaving behind in the year 2012? What are you looking forward to in the year 2013?

Colorblock Socks!

I AM A SOCK FANATIC! Growing up I bought different kind of funky socks. From ankle socks, to knee high socks, to toe socks. I had almost every pattern and color you could imagine. Anyway, I was getting dressed for work and I decided to wear my newest purchase. Navy and white stripe colorblock socks.

 

My socks were the inspiration for my look. It was the first thing I knew I wanted to wear so; I built my outfit from that. I wanted the hot pink blocking to show so, I pulled my socks over my jeans. From that point everything else just fell into place. I grabbed my wedges to add height, oxford shirt to layer, and my nubby terry hoodie for texture. Oh, and my hair played right along with my relaxed yet edgy ensemble. Done deal!

 

I have a thing for elbow patches!
