I just might be turning into a skirt obsessed fashion blogger. I love the way fitted skirts hug my curves and give my body structure. They are perfect for lazy days and busy Saturdays when you don't want to wear jeans.

I paired this denim skirt with a simple cropped tee to keep the look casual. You can dress this look up or down by change your shoes and accessories.

Sweater dress: H&M // Blazer: H&M // Shoes: Off Broadway

The best way to style a pink Zara blazer is with a pink H&M sweater dress and black oxfords. Pink is my color and I must admit that I'm a sucker for monochrome outfits. I snapped these pics while visiting NYC for a Twitter and WWP event for my job.

I fall in love with the big Apple a little more each trip. What's your favorite thing to do in New York City? You can check out my latest #NYFW post here.

Would you believe it was raining during this shoot and my leaveout disrespected me? Ha, I am telling you no lies. Humidity is the devil for naturals. Lol

Now back to fashion... This look is perfect for a quick day at the office or running errands on a busy Saturday. Thanks for checking out the best way to style a pink zara blazer.

Welcome to the first edition of Female Bosses 101 featuring fashion designer and stylist, ZaMar Lewis. Her style is second to none. I always find myself double tapping her Instagram pictures so when I wanted to start doing interviews again, I had to reach out via DM. I’ve never seen someone create such eye-catching looks with bold colors and prints consistently. She literally nails every single look. Keep scrolling to learn more about the stylish and super talented, ZaMar Lewis.

Girl! Everything you want is literally at your fingertips!  All those “crazy” ideas you have, make them happen. Ask question like your life depends on it. No fear! Don’t allow anybody to discourage you or make you feel like a career in fashion is impossible. You already know what you want, so give it 100% and ignore every naysayer! I love you! Now go take over the world mama!

Describe the pivotal moment in your career where you knew you had something special.

I honestly can’t think of a pivotal moment. What I can say is when I show up on set and make something out of nothing every time, it me makes me feel like the very first time. I surprise myself.

What does being a boss look like to you?

A boss is somebody that helps others. Someone who is just as willing to be a learner as they are a teacher. Someone doing exactly what they love to and getting paid for it.

If you could meet with your business icon, living or dead, who would it be? What would you like to discuss with them?

My business icon is June Ambrose. If I could meet her I would probably pass out. lol... no really. I’m obsessed! She’s the epitome of everything that I want to be. A mother, wife, fashion god, and a business women. I would ask her how she balances it all so gracefully.

I’d also ask her what are 3 things she would tell me to be successful in the business. And then I’d ask her to be my fashion fairy glam-mother!

Describe a typical day in your life.

The moment I open my eyes, I say a prayer. Then say my affirmations for the day. I work out for an hour grab some breakfast and get down to work. Checking emails, checking my website to see if we have any new orders. I get on my sewing machine and bring my creations to life. Prepare my head for a shoot (if I have one that day).

Before and/or after, I take an hour to meditate, I’m a true introvert, so I must prepare myself to be around people. I may read for an hour ow two, then I’m online, either for leisure or to find what’s new and hot in the fashion world. Once I’ve done all these things, I say my prayer of thankfulness and I’m off to bed.

Thank you for sharing your story and looks with the Jasmine Diane audience. It was a pleasure working with you and I can’t wait to see more of your style on the gram.

I hope you are making 2018 your best year yet. January is coming to a close and I'm on a major high from my first branding workshop this past weekend. But let's get into this look. I'm obsessed with this custom red robe from Coco and Ilia. It's perfect for layering and slayage. I felt like a queen walking up and down Troost to nail these shots. Happy Wednesday!
