Featured My Style

Outfit Post: Chiffon and Lace

This past weekend, I spoke not once but twice at two different events. It was probably one of my best days this year because I tackled one of my biggest fears…public speaking! Now don’t get me wrong, I  speak in front of crowds all the time but this was my largest crowd to date. I spoke at the Most Powerful Voice Concert featuring Marvin Sapp, almost 4000 people were in attendance; I’ll tell you more about that in my next post. I decided since I was speaking to a group of professional women and later at a church that I would go with something easy and simple since I wouldn’t have a lot of time in between both events. I decided to wear a little back dress and to add some color, I added my cranberry and pink pumps!


I don’t know why I didn’t take a picture without my award but such is life…lol IMG_8633

Here I am being interviewed, about the conference  I’m doing 2 things I loved to do: talk and laugh! There is no better feel than the feeling you get when you inspire someone else. It truly was a powerful day and one that I won’t forget for a long time!IMG_8656Dress: ASOS, Bag: Furla, Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Hoisery: Brown Sugar by Leggs (My new favorite brand, you can barely tell I have anything on).

All in all, it was a great day!!
