Green Goes With Everything


This smile + my love for green runs deep, very deep, into my core. I can sit and say I am happy without any if ands or buts, and no everything isn’t perfect but I am happy! My moods change from day-to-day, but lately the smile has remained. This outfit though- easy and clean mix of green, highs, lows- along with the fact I got called the Boosie of Blogging. I thought it was the funniest thing ever and I am claiming it- I love me some Boosie so Im going to coin this from here on out.

Plaid Blouse and Jeans


Hello Ladies! Happy Tuesday to you all, and I hope you are killing this work week if it is one for you. To start the week I wore this very basic plaid blouse and dark denim jeans look that I really enjoyed. I’m the biggest believer in fashion+style being 100% percent authentic and each outfit you see featured has indeed been worn that day.

Sunday Lounge


So if you have not wondered over to the about me page here is a quick briefing on my blog name. I was looking for a name that could describe my style and could also become its own brand. As I was thinking of what describes my style I just kept thinking ‘ i just do whatever’ and its true, I pick one item and the rest gets added along the way. The me always just doing is the ‘effortless’ and the putting together of different pieces until a complete product is made is the ‘composition’. A prime example of this in action is my outfit today. It started out as a regular romper I was lounging around in.  Since it was cold outside figured I didn’t want to face the chill sleeveless so I through on this white tee over it. Then came the pops- the plaid, the sandals, the fringe, and bag till I was layered up.

Grey: DIY Shirt Dress


For work today I wore this DIY shirt dress, my favorite boyfriend jeans, and my favorite booties. For a while now I have been wanting a blouse similar to this one, but all the ones I see are ridiculously overpriced or just not my style. Last night it hit me as I was thinking of what I could wear that could both address this heat and be work appropriate. I looked in my closet and saw this dress when my light bulb came on. Check out how I did it below.
