It’s been a minute. I have taken some time to unplug, rest, and recharge. I have spent a lot of time practicing self-care, and binge watching movies and TV shows on Netflix.
It’s hard to believe that this week, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving here in the States. It feels like November was here just yesterday. The last quarter of the year is so fast approaching; and even though 2020 has come with its share of trials and tribulations for our entire race, I’m grateful to be here, well and alive! I’m certainly looking forward to what 2021 has in store for us.
This casual chic look will keep you cozy, warm, and comfortable. Lounge set or monochromatic workout gears are perfect for quick errands or casual outings. Throw on a nice coat or a jacket to dress it up if you wish, and you have a stylish outfit. You might even get a thanksgiving dinner outfit out of it. what do you think of this casual look? Would you wear it?
As always, thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
I’m finally sharing with you guys the other way I styled this black floral print lapel-collar button-front blazer dress. If you haven’t seen Part One, you can check it out here! This floral print blazer dress is a great statement piece; and I know I will get a lot of use out of it. I fell in love with the prints, (Check out the top HERE) and I didn’t really know what to expect when it comes to the fit, but I have to say that I didn’t regret the purchase!
While I felt sassy – Sexy yet classy – while wearing the blazer dress on its own, I definitely also loved the classy and chic look when I paired with satin pants (previously shown here). I find the blazer dress to be versatile and you can’t really go wrong with either styling. It can also be dressed down with a pair of jeans or flats. These are just a few ideas that I’m throwing out there. If you are on a shorter side, it maybe a little too long styled as a blazer, but it’s definitely not impossible to pull off. It all depends on how you style it and the vibe you’re going for. 😉
As you can see in these pictures, I have shown both the option of a tailored look, where I cinched the waist with a belt, and the loose fit, a more relaxed vibe, without the belt.
I have to admit that I have felt more confident and sexier when I added the belt, and more comfortable without the belt. I think both ways are cute and, again, it depends on the vibe you’re going for.
What’s your preference? and if you’ve checked part one of how I styled this blazer dress, which one actually got your vote? Do share! And speaking of vote, how are you keeping centered with everything going on with the presidential elections? I have shared some words of wisdom with my Facebook friends that I’d like to share with you guys…
“When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is.”
I hope you have a great day and cheers to a fabulous weekend.
Gone with the old, in with the new… Bring it on, November! Just like that 2020 is heading to its end! All I can say is that I’m grateful, and I intend to finish the year stronger, and I’m also looking forward to the holiday season.
This gorgeous maxi dress had been a favorite during the warmer months, but can also be worn as a transitional piece during Fall. This is one of those dresses you would like to keep for years to come because of the timeless style and the amazing feel and quality! Light enough for the warmer days, easy to layered up in cooler days. It’s playfully gorgeous and elegant.
These pictures have been taken in the streets of Omaha a few months back, and I have been stopped by complete strangers who thought the dress was beautiful; and I couldn’t agree more.
I styled the dress here with a camisole underneath for less cleavage, but you wouldn’t need to if you want to show a little more skin.
What do you think of this look? would you wear it?
As always, thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!
I’ve heard a few states in the Midwest got their first flurries… some, like my lovely Minnne-snow-ta, got quite a bit more than just flurries! As we speak, most roofs all look the same 😊 matching the crisp white color that covers what used to be, just a couple days ago, green grass sprinkled with yellow and light brown leaves! Yeah, it’s safe to say Fall is in full effect!
Now that I’ve got over the shock of seeing snow plowers all over the city, trying to get to areas where cars are devilishly spinning their tires in the hope of getting unstuck from this thick white snow, I would like to share a great experience I had over my birthday weekend. – Yes it’s still my birthday day month, and I get to talk about it one more time. 🙂
A couple weekends ago, I got the opportunity to partner up with Intercontinental Hotel – Airport, here in the Twin Cities. This partnership couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! Covid, putting a screeching halt to any plans of “big” birthday party, got us leaning toward going on a birthday trip with the family instead. About a week prior to our trip, the destination city recorded some spikes in their Covid cases, which forced us, for the sake of safety, to cancel our trip… No worries, it’s not all bad.
My wonderful hubby, in complicity with his partners in crime, A.K.A. my daughters decided to take things into their own hands and give me the best bday staycation weekend I’ve ever had! The partnership with Intercontinental Hotel – Minneapolis Airport allowed me the weekend stay Friday to Sunday accommodating us with a executive suite for hubs and I with an adjoining junior suite for the girls… Yeah, the bday weekend was looking better already! 😉
With still some collaboration work to be turned in and hubby also needing to get some work done before the d-day, we both got to experience the new WFH: Working From Hotel! The girls, in their own room, with allocated room service, a big screen TV with hundreds of channels… and, most importantly, their phones and iPads, were busy enough right next door to allow us to get some work done!
With a spacious desk at which hubby was quick to set up shop (shotgun style 😂) and a huge sectional sofa where I was more than happy to relax and plug away at my work, the accommodation was more than perfect for Work From Hotel!
That part of the weekend concluded early in the evening and we got to join the girls to take in the spectacular view right from our suite. We also enjoyed planes taking off and landing for – I would say – about an hour or so. Believe it or not, it was quite fascinating to see hundreds of planes taking off and landing in an almost robotic fashion. Of course, we were quick to turn the whole thing into a game as we tried to guess how many people were aboard, where they were going and/or coming from… 😂Yeah, that’s my family!
😅Some in-room massage was ordered in for yours truly – compliments of hubby – followed by room service dinner.
I would like to mention here that Intercontinental Hotel has 3 awesome locations here in the Twin Cities. One of my reasons for partnering up with them is the tremendous role they play in raising awareness for breast cancer. And we all know – especially you, ladies – that we cannot close the month of October without focusing one more time on this serious affliction that lures over us all! – Yeah, this is a subject that, as a woman, particularly hits close to the heart… ok, let’s go back to the bday weekend. –
Then comes Saturday, my birthday. Hubby and the girls woke up super early, and very quietly, lightly decorated our suite and arranged the many gifts and balloons they got for me, and waited for me to wake up.
I will spare you the details of how eventful my special day was, as this post is to emphasis on my stay at the Intercontinental Hotel – Airport. For my birthday dinner we got to experience the French-inspired cuisine of the hotel restaurant… drumroll… La Voya!
The ambiance of the place was very relaxing and quite inviting. Their staff, very welcoming and pleasant… yes, we could see those smiles through their face covering! They were quick and very helpful in recommending beverages for us the adults and meals for the girls. Dinner was to die for and their tiramisu, OMG!
The Hotel is definitely on our repeat list for staycations or friends and family coming in town. I love the fact that they put in place many precautionary measures for Covid-19. It was a safe stay and an awesome experience altogether, but don’t take my word for it. Why don’t you come find out for yourself?
My Minneapolis friends, want to get away without going away? Out of towners, want the only thing separating your Hotel from the airport to be a skyway? There you have it: Intercontinental Hotel Minneapolis – Airport! 😉

This camouflage Jumpsuit has become my new uniform over the last few weeks. If you’ve seen me in town repeatedly wearing it, don’t act surprise, because I have warned you 🙂 . Seriously though, this jumpsuit is super comfortable and flattering. The stretchy material makes it form-hugging yet comfortable and very soft to the feel. It’s been a favorite during Summer and transitioned easily into Fall and beyond. I would totally style this jumpsuit with some boots and a nice coat to make it a one of a kind fall style.
What do you think of this look? Would you wear this jumpsuit?
