About Me

My photo
Hi! I'm Shanticka. My blog is about any and everything that I want it to be. Me, my family, work, personal style, friends, etc. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy getting to know me. Live, in living color.



Hey peeps!! I hope you're having a great start of the week!! For me, it was a very busy, yet fulfilling day. I am an eMentor (mentor over email) to a high-school student, and I got to meet her today. She came to my office for half the day to participate in a job-shadowing opportunity. While it was an awesome experience for she and I both, I had to basically cram a full day of work into 4 hours once the job-shadowing was over. It was at that moment that the wheels flew off of my day! I finally gained control of everything before it was time for me to leave. Whew! I'm assuming tomorrow will be better.

Anyhoo, on to the OOTD…

So, here's the deal. I can't stop wearing stripes. No matter how hard I try to steer clear of them while shopping, they just keep callin me **insert Pookie voice from New Jack City**!

Chris Rock as Pookie

 This skirt was no exception. I picked it up from the Old Navy Outlet for the lovely price of $8.73 a piece! When I saw that the clearance price was $12.49 + an extra 30% off, I realized that there were 2 other skirts (plus a blazer) that NEEDED to come home with me. Ha!

The black and white striped skirt just begs to be paired with my leopard shoes. I love them together.

I pinned one side of my hair just to see if I would like it… and I do! I think, I'm getting the hang of this whole natural thing. lol I've been browsing Youtube looking for more styles that fit with my length. If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments section, or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook, and now Instagram!!!

Until next time...

  3. You look really cute, I really like that stripe skirt.

    I haven't been to Old Navy in like forever. I used to go all the time, but just don't think to go. Heck I haven't shopped for myself in several months (yeah bad I know) this thing called a budget and things that keep coming up, but that's life!! :-(

  5. LMBO @ that Chris Rock photo, lol. I love this combo. The black and white with the turquoise top look great!!! And the leopard print pumps are a super stylish addition!

  6. LOL @ Pookie. Do you know I watched that movie on cable in the middle of the night last night. I woke up with tummy ache and couldn't go back to sleep. Then I saw this post and just hollered. But girl,I have a thing for stripes too. It is a pure mess how much I love them and Old Navy is the worse place to go because they have lots of stripes.

    Cute fit and you are rocking the natural!
