Showing Up and Showing Out On An Everyday Basis2:38 PM
Since I was a little kid, my mom always had this saying that became our family's mantra:
"We show up and we show out."
And show up and show out, we did! Mom always made sure my brother and I looked put together, polished and stood out. I think I got my love for fashion from her. She prided herself on how great her kids looked because to her that reflected on how she was as a mother. She made sure she was the best in everything... we always had a meal on the table, we always were clean, we were hard working, polite, kind and respectful. And we always looked on point when it came to our outfits.

I love dresses, skirts, graphic tees, prints, jeans, lace, leather, sneakers... I have days where I live in a graphic tee and jeans and then there are those days I want to dress up and feel pretty. It depends on my mood. But throughout all those moods, one thing remains constant. I am always looking to be chic, pulled together, comfortable and had a little edge to my look. I tend to be on the move a lot, especially doing everyday things like going to the supermarket, spending time with my nieces, etc. So I like things simple but polished.
So I guess my everyday style is about doing just that. You only live once, right? Might as well make a statement and show the world who you are with style.
What is your everyday style? What do you love to wear?
