Pretty Wednesday

I am not a fashionista. 

Let me just say that first so no one gets the wrong idea here. I am however a girl  woman who wears all black to work (retail probs), has a closet full of things that either don't fit or don't inspire and has never really felt comfortable with the idea of fashion. Thinking about it honestly gives me mild anxiety. 

Dramatic? Yes. Good thing I'm only kind of kidding :]
I guess my point is that I've never felt like my clothes match my spirit. So I decided to change that. I decided to take control of my closet. And even though I had no clue what I was doing when this idea first came about, thankfully I had some help. That help came in the form of bloggers I've never met and sisters that mean more to me than they know.

Following so many bloggers, each with a unique sense of style, gives me tons of outfit inspo on days when I find myself uninspired. Plus my sorority sisters (Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated) are always dressed to impress, and that motivated me too. I'm talking "you better bring your A game because they show out everywhere they go" dressing to impress. It's not a game. 
Their flawlessness inspired my pledge to "discover my personal style" and that pledge inspired this series. Pretty Wednesday. Every hump day I will document my fashion journey and the rebuilding of my wardrobe. For better or worse, I'm putting it allllllllllll out there for ya'll. Here we go....

Today we're kicking things off with this faux fur vest I scored a few weeks back at Forever 21. What I love the most about this piece is how soft and versatile it is. Perfect for dressing up a casual look.

To off set the neutrals and denim, I added the most perfect clutch from the store that has become my guilty pleasure, Francesca's. 

Have a very pretty Wednesday ya'll.
