Tired of playing dress up.

heels just weren't cutting it.

I can't remember the last time I dressed up sneakers.

First of all, I didn't realize how damn white this look was until looking at the pictures. Ya girl was out here shining bright like a diamond. Secondly, I really can't tell you how good it felt to be cute AND comfortable. My feet didn't hurt for one second and I wasn't worried about my shapewear showing AND I still looked dressed to go somewhere. This was an all-around win and I'm already trying to figure out when I can wear it again.

I'm generally a black, white, and grey girl. They're easy and stylish and they hide all flaws but I've recently gotten into nude. Just like my favorite shades it goes with everything but unlike my other sartorial preferences, it is instantly sexy. I'll definitely be incorporating more nude into my winter closet.

The Queen of Her Own Empire

The empires of the future are the empires of the mind. - Winston Churchill

Inspired by the beautiful Taraji P. Henson

Inspired by the beautiful Taraji P. Henson

I'm generally not one to try and recreate celebrity looks. It's not that I think it's bad or that it lacks originality, I just always want to try to be fully me. That being said, every once in a while, a celebrity look fits perfectly with my style and I just have to go for it. Tara P. Henson's October cover for Glamour magazine was just so beautiful and full of life to me. Luckily for me, I already had the pieces needed to recreate this stunning look. The orange dress was an unexpected find from Marshall's, the belt came from another dress (an orange one coincidentally), and the necklace from Rocksbox (use the code jadorejoelleeeexoxo for a free month).

Until Next Time!

On Being An Adult

The word adult should be categorized as a verb...

Patterned Blazer Over Jersey Dress

I don't understand why no one told me how hard adulthood is. Everyday I feel like I'm running: to the gym, to work, running errands, paying bills.  It's rough and I'd be lying if I said that I never fantasize about the college or even high school days. Point blank: they were much easier. Now, when I hear a younger person lament about how much they can't wait to get on their own, I cringe. Because they don't know how awesome they have it.
