#WIW ON MOTHER’S DAY AND IN THE NAME OF #WCW

styling animal prints Happy woman crush Wednesday, beauties! In the name of #wcw, I am crushing on myself in this outfit and for the woman that I am. A woman who isn’t perfect, but trying her best in every aspect of life. Trying her best to get her ish together and be the best single mother she can be while killin it stylishly on budget. Ha! My days of over thinking and driving myself to depression because of things I can’t do anything about has changed tremendously.

So in the name of #wcw, share one thing you’re crushing about yourself.

In the style department, this is what I wore to church on mother’s day. These are old pieces from my closet. I am really enjoying discovering my closet all over again. I can’t believe the gems hidden there – Pieces that didn’t fit, but now fit miraculously. Shopping my closet has definitely helped my excessive shopping habit. I’ve always been a sucker ofΒ animal prints and full skirts. The leopard print shirt is everything. It is the star of this look for sure. An item I’ll be cherishing for a long time. These two together screams sophistication. So many shoes, but I always find myself gravitating towards this black one.

Is there an item in your closet that you find yourself wearing all the time?

    I adore the color of your top next to unexpected white of your skirt! Fabulous and chic! I am always amazed when I dig in the back of my closet and what I come up with. Often I think I want something and realize I have something very similar in my closet.

    I raised my two sons on my own and they turned out amazing! My greatest piece of work and one thing I am extremely proud of! My oldest is a Business Analyst and my youngest is a Doctor of Neuropsychology. They are in their late 30s and my best friends!
    Peace!

    I just adore this outfit! That skirt is so pretty how it flairs out a bit and the soft color of it against the brighter top. I tend to overthink myself to death, too and I’ve been trying to work on that, too.

    Yaaay for WCW! We should all woman crush on ourselves sometimes. If we can’t love ourselves, we can’t let others love us, right? I do love this styling. You look gorgeous girl! That skirt is so pretty and I simply adore that leopard print blouse. These two make for a perfect pairing and the heels are simply the perfect finishing touch to this outfit. Simply divine look. Shopping our closet is the best, I love to do it too!..and yes I do have some items in my closet that I wear all the time, for example I have this really comfy pair of biker boots I wear all year around.
