Let's Get One Thing Straight

Outfit Of The Day 
Selfie Time! Today's outfit of the day is one funky little number. This outfit is stylish, trendy, a bit sexy and just the right amount of fun for summer. I paired a striped crop top with a jersey skirt for a slick monochrome look. The sporty trim is an extra cute touch. Throw in a modern heel and an eye-catching clutch and it is a winning combination.

Okay, I am going to do something a little different today. Yesterday I found out that I was nominated by Toi Thomas the blogger and self-published author of The ToiBox of Words for the Creative Blogger Award. Thank you, Toi for the nomination! It was really cool to scroll over to her page to see what was new and to my surprise, I was mentioned. It made my day so please make sure to check out her blog and discover what she has to offer. 

1) Thank and post the link to the person who nominated you. 
2) Share five facts about yourself to your readers. 
3) Nominate 10-20 blogs and notify them. ( I will only nominate one, otherwise, it can be misconstrued as spam or chain mail. Which I am not cool with.)
4) Pass on the rules.

1) I am a proud Leo, and I am an August baby (Yay party next month)!
2) I'm an introvert.
3) I am extremely passionate and enjoy lively debates (Not screaming matches). 
4) I have an addictive sweet tooth.
5) My favorite vacation spot is Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.


The Complete Works of TGR Worzel . I nominated Ray Turner the blogger behind The Complete Works of TGR Worzel because I admire his hard work and dedication to his blogging career. He has several blogs and I can never understand how he manages them all when I can barely get my main blog together. He is a consistent and an opinionated blogger. He lets you know where he stands but in a respectful and humorous manner. He has supported me and my blog for a couple of years and always manages to leave a comment on almost all of my post even if he doesn't always agree with my fashion sense.


  1. Thank you for the nomination LaToya. I completely agree with you on chain emails, spam etc. I will nominate somebody and shall give careful thought to the question of who it should be.

    Anyway, as for the outfit, this is one that I like enormously. It is very elegant. I love the way stripes have been used here.

    1. You're welcome Ray! You totally deserve it.

  2. Congrats on your award nomination, it always feels good to be recognized! About the outfit, I'm very into high waisted bottoms and crop tops. I think you can look so chic in so many types of bottoms. Love!


    1. I agree that if you are going to rock a crop top you should most definitely pair it high waisted shorts. It makes so much more chic than the alternative.

    1. Thank you and I added your blog hop as well!

  4. I'm so glad to see that you decided to pass this along. I really do enjoy your posts. I can't wait to see what special things you share next month come birthday time.

    1. Thank you Toinette for the nomination, and I'm planning my birthday posts as we speak. It will be a little something to celebrate my fellow Leo's!

  5. congrats for creative award...love that outfit proposal you put together!
