Life is all about balance and finding yours. Specifically, work-life balance. We live in the anti-9-to-5 age, but let's just say what that really means. From the moment we wake up in the morning to the minute we close our eyes, we're working. And while setting yourself up to have the best future possible is great, it's also important to live in the moment and not take life so seriously.
Coco Note: Still working on that last part.
I don't know about you, but after an 8-14 hour work day, the last think I want to do is go home just to change my clothes and head out again. Segue into my point, mastering day-to-night styling is a major key.
It's Friday, and you know what that means. It's Jumpsuit Friday! This particular jumpsuit is NOT office-appropriate, which made styling this look an especially challenging task. It is, however, perfect for a Friday night out on the town. The deep v-neck halter top is super sexy, and the wide, flowy legs of the trousers really elongate the leg.
Coco Note: I could use a little help in the leg department, anyway.
The pinstripe pattern of this ultra-sexy jumpsuit is really what makes it an appropriate day-to-night piece. It has a professional, bawsy feel....just with a not-so-professional cut. Enter, button up. This jumpsuit was practically begging for a white collared shirt. Pinstripe is a classic, especially in black and white, so why not pair it with another classic?
To go with the unconventional cut of the jumpsuit, I wore a slightly large button up, rolled up the sleeves and gave it a more relaxed feel. It's Friday, after all! Since we're still transitioning into Fall, white mules seemed very appropriate.

I've always been a fan of both Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'oir, so I'm definitely in favor of this union. While I would die before I let a guest wear a drop of white on my wedding day, I admire Keyshia for taking the Knowles-route (both Beyonce and Solange had attendees dress in all-white). I live to see people of chocolate in all-white.
Can you imagine being in that room? I can, and here's what I would be wearing if I was.
Welcome to the 4th Quarter. Apply pressure.
There's something about the 4th Quarter, the last 3 months of the year, that applies, and forces me to apply, an undeniable pressure. It might be the changing seasons, the fact that I was born right in the middle of it or the impending end of the year. Regardless of your motivation, the 4th Quarter is where the game is won. Get in, and apply pressure.
That's exactly what we're doing right hurr.
"I don't Playboy, I ain't Hugh Hefner..."
Hugh Hefner is dead and I feel a way.
So, what better way to remember the real-life Casanova than with a sexy, fall date night look? I'm talking robes, sheer, fur, sparkle... come on!
Y'all, I've been really obsessed with green lately. And I do mean that in every sense of the word.
"You was in La Marina all summer"
That's not quite the case, but I did finally make it to Loso's favorite NYC hotspot this summer! I've been meaning to hit up Dyckman's infamous beach lounge for a few years, and this summer presented me with the perfect excuse.
Which became the perfect reason to wear this outfit. Duh.
I'm seriously all about ultra-feminine and flirty looks this season. Summer '17 is giving me serious modern-day A Midsummer Night's Dream vibes.
Before I get all Shakespearian on you, let me put it in layman's terms: give me all the whites, ruffles and florals.
I was never a huge fan of floral print (put the torches and pitchforks down), until I figured out the trick to choosing a print that works for me.
Everyone's always showing love to the ever-popular LBD, but when it comes to key wardrobe pieces for the summer, our go-to just doesn't cut it.
With all the boat parties and All-White events (thanks a lot, Puff Daddy) I get invited to in the summer, I'm always on the hunt for the perfect LWD; that's Little White Dress to you.
I have a saying that I pretty much live by. It's my go-to response when people tell me that I seem to be "living the life," but also a reminder to myself.
*cue Kendrick Lamar, Humble*
It isn't a new concept, but in today's era of Social Media and doing what I do, putting it this way really makes the overall message relatable.
I thought I'd do another video-style OOTD and give you guys the one word of advice that saves me from turning it down when I feel like I may be doing too much...
I thought we'd try something different and do this post in video form! If you like this style, make sure you head to my YouTube channel and give it a thumbs up! Feel free to subscribe while you're at it!
I was never a huge fan of a traditional white-collared shirt. Something about it made me feel like I was going on an interview, no matter what I paired it with. As trends have evolved and fashion has gotten more daring, however, I've find new and alternative styles that have shifted my perspective on this classic, wardrobe staple.
