Black & White, Stripes on Stripes.

Hey Everyone,

Hope you all are doing lovely and feeling great.

I participated in the Blog Trends  chat on twitter last night and I am soooo glad I did. Its a great chat to participate in especially if you are a newbie blogger. You learn so much on how to grow and improve the quality of your blog. I received so much great advice and I'm really excited to put it into action. The chat is at 9pm EST on Mondays. You can read up on the Blog Trends convo from last night, here!

Anywho, this is the outfit that I wore on my actual birthday, February 27th. The banging bumble bee dress (as I like to call it), from this post is what I wore for my bday celebration a couple of days earlier. When I purchased this amazingggg blazer I knew I was going to wear it on my bday. Originally I had planned to wear red jeans with it, but for some reason I opted for a striped dress that day and I'm glad I did because the stripes on stripes look great together! Its a good thing that I decided not to wear the red jeans because I tried to wear them today and they wouldn't go past my thighs lol.  I guess I will be giving them away and back on the search for a pair of red jeans.




 On my bday I had work and class until 9pm, so I wanted to look cute, comfy, and not too overdressed. I received so many complements on this outfit.  The oxfords were a last minute shoe change. I planned on wearing the black wedge booties I wore this post, but I didnt want my feet to be begging for mercy at the end of the day. 






This facebook birthday wish made my day. Very inspirational...God's anointing teaches me all things. And yes my real name is not Cherrie lol. Cherrie is my household nickname (you learn something new everyday huh!).

Earrings: LBS
Necklace: H&M
Watch- Guess (Gifted)
Oxford Booties: Brucco
Striped Dress-F21 (similar here)
Blazer & Black Tights: Conway
Ring: Gifted from my mom
Bracelet: Stolen from my friend Angie lol

Hope you enjoyed this post!
xoxo

    1. Sherry why do you always have to add pressure with your comments lol (for example, give me more work to do). Thank you for the compliments! The person who took my photos, suggested that we take it in the place we did...glad you like them. Its hard to get close up images with my tripod of accessories etc., but I will try to take some. Definitely check out Conway for the blazer. I got mine about a month ago, but they might still have some in stock!
