Hi Everyone!!!! Yes I know, I know. I’ve been gone for way too long, but I’m back! Can I just tell you how much I’ve missed blogging! So later on, I will be writing a blog post about why I’ve been gone. But for those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram (@cheapbutchic) or any of my social media sites, I’ll tell you that I have been extremely busy launching my business. But again, that’s a different blog post. For now, I will be supporting my dear friend, Yetunde Sarumi.
Yetunde aka Ye is a fellow DIY fashion blogger and one of my business partners in our growing company, Pretty Girls Sew. Ye launched her clothing line a few months ago and I cannot say enough good things about it. The prints are beautiful, it’s beautifully made, and it’s affordable. When she launched her pieces for the Summer, I went crazy over her Summer jacket and knew I had to have it. There are so many ways you can style this jacket which I am beyond excited about, but today, I decided to style it as my Sunday’s Best. I styled my Yetunde Sarumi jacket with a basic trumpet dress I made recently. I decided to pair my jacket with a black dress because I wanted my jacket to be the center of attention.
You can shop this jacket as well as all other fashionably trendy items on Ye’s online store. Link is below.
So every other month or so my husband and I take a trip to DC to visit our best friends. Every time we go, we always have the best time. For this particular trip, we wanted to basically relax and get our minds off of the stresses in our busy lives. So what did I wear? Remember, when I’m outside of my blogger mindset, I incorporate black in every outfit. I either wear black from head to toe or I will incorporate it into what I’m wearing. Now that I think about it, I do sprinkle a few black pieces here on my blog but not as much as I usually wear it in real life. (I’ll go into detail with why I wear color on my blog but not as much in real life at a later time.) Because we were doing a lot of walking, I decided that I was going to be as comfortable as possible. I decided that I was going to play up my makeup as my fashion statement in my outfits.

So I started using a new foundation and my skin has improved 110%! I used to have small bumps all over my face (irritation from several different foundations) and dry patches (eczema) on my cheeks. I’ll do a separate post on that though. I filmed a “Get Ready with Me” so that will be posted soon.

So while in DC, my fellow Pretty Girls Sew co-founder told me she was going to be in the same location I was (the National Harbor) so we decided that we were going to meet for the first time. I was beyond excited!!! It was like meeting your long lost sister who you were separated from at birth. I could have hugged her all day! I’m so happy to have met you Ye.
I went on the brand new Ferris Wheel. I’m extremely terrified of heights and I never usually get on any rides. I only got on this thing for my husband. LOL! I will never do it again. Thanks for stopping by!
