I'm Black Coffee...No Sugar, No Cream.

...Black coffee, the African queen
Part of  the Afro-American dream
Enough respect
I'm diggin' intellect
Appreciate the fact that you never miss a step
The backbone of the black bone here's to ya
As long as I'm around believe me no one could ever do ya
You warm, considerate, and far from a softy
And that's why I love ya, you're my black coffee

Black coffee, no sugar, no cream
That's the kind of girl I need down with my team

~Heavy D

Hey my fellow bloggies...see what you all didn't know is, Dwight wrote that song for/about me.  Yep...yours truly was the inspiration for that song!  OK...OK...Heavy didn't know me. So! I tried to make it sound all official by using his gubment  He was a great friend in my head though.  Heavy and I (along with Patti LaBelle) share the same birthday so I felt a connection *sigh*.  
One of the greatest of all time!

Today, I am a little mixed up!  As I stated before, doing this blog has me really stepping out of my fashion comfort zone and I love it!  Today's outfit is just a baby step though. Stripes and Polka dots. Silks and Cable knits. I am mixing prints and textures y'all! 
Can I get a whoop whoop!?!

 *side note*  Ha! While proofing this post..I just noticed my youngest son in the reflection of the window in the first picture.  My 13 year old takes my pictures and my 9 year old tags along and in between shots, the two of them toss the football around, rough house and just be the boys that they are.  It is crazy...but I love it all the same.

The Mixed up Medley:

Stripped Blouse: Thrifted
Polka Dot Dress (worn as a skirt): Thrifted
Cable Knit Sweater Vest: Walmart (aprox. 7 years ago)
Wedge Slingbacks: Jessica Simpson
Belt: Ashley Stewart ?
Purse: Kenneth Cole Reaction
Random Accessories
Watch: Hubby's Fossil

Before I go I want to leave you with some funny words from another recently lost great.

 Nothin' wrong with an ass whuppin' every now and then. You take away the ass whuppin's and what do you get? You get people wearin' pants below their belly buttons. I'm tellin' you, you go out these days and see the crack of a young lady's butt. It's crazy, man. They should be locked up for indecent exposure. Look here. See? Suspenders! And a belt! I ain't takin' no chances.

R.I.P. Smokin' Joe!
