I’ve been waiting on consistent cold weather, like a kid waits for Christmas. We’ve had a few cool days, but two days later it’s back in the high 60’s or low 70’s. I’m not really complaining , but it would be great to experience winter like weather for at least a month. Because this weather changes like the wind, I haven’t put away some of my summer clothes. I haven’t technically unloaded my cold weather items either. Not to mention, figuring out what to wear is a headache. I’m talking drama-filled, especially when it comes to work. Continue Reading »

It was almost two weeks ago, but I’m still reliving Tuskegee University’s Homecoming.  I celebrated my 10 year class reunion. It was such an awesome experience to go back to a place I called home for many years. Mother Tuskegee is so dear to my heart. The memories are unforgettable , the experience is invaluable , and the education is unmatched.  My time at Tuskegee really laid the foundation of my adult life and I’m grateful for every bit of it. Check out some of the new memories I created on my recent trip to Tuskegee, AL as I celebrated Tuskegee University’s 2016  Homecoming. #TUHC16 Continue Reading »

It’s Wednesday and I’m still in recovery mode after experiencing the best homecoming ever. I celebrated by 10 year class reunion at Tuskegee University over the weekend and I’m still paying for it.  I plan to give a complete recap really soon. In the meantime let’s talk work wear as I’m holding on by a thread this work week. Typically I stay away from all black looks because the color doesn’t show well on television, but from time to time I’ll inject the dark hue into my newsroom look. Here are two recent occasions where I slayed in all black at the work place.  Continue Reading »

It’s no secret, I love a sale. I really love deals and discounts. It excites me on a level that should probably be questioned. So imagine the foolery that went down when I walked into Sears, YES SEAR’S . The department store was having the largest sale ever. I literally lost my mind and almost all of my money. The deals were too sweet to walk away from. I’m talking dresses for as low as $3.99. I ended up trying on two baskets full of pieces, but I only walked out with five dresses on my first trip (yes, there was a 2nd trip). The best part is each dress is work-ready and office approved. I’ve already worn three of my fab finds so let’s take a look at each one starting with my favorite .

It’s starting to feel like a fall. Not the Rochester fall weather I’ve gotten used to, but more of the southern version of fall. I’m experiencing warm days and crisp cool nights. Dressing for the two variations of weather can be tricky. You refuse to wear longer sleeves in the day in fear of getting too hot, but a tank top at night might have you on the cold side. Tricky, right? The best way to win in this weather game is by layering! Here’s how I layered my chic summer pieces with my new fall favorites: Continue Reading »

It’s fall but it feels like summer in Alabama. I’m ready for boots, moto, jackets , and more importantly cooler temperatures. After spending the last few years in ‘Snowmagedon’ you would think I would be rejoicing in the warmer weather, but I’m over it. I’m ready for the REAL fall weather to kick it in, darn it!!!! So this weekend I started to gear up for fall and showcased some of my fall fashion. And in true Jamiese Monét fashion, this look was on trend and on budget. Take a peek. Continue Reading »

Style Files: Five Times I Wore All White to Work and Managed to Stay Clean

I’ve never worn white as much as I have this year and now I think I’m hooked. This applies to my weekend wear and my work wardrobe. I’ve probably worn white the most to the office and that’s pretty strange since my work day isn’t spent behind a desk. I spend most of my day around town meeting new people and telling stories that matter to the community. Sometimes that may take me to some strange places and let’s just say my all white look wouldn’t last long. Seriously, I could be a dirt ball before I make it back to the car. For instance , I spent al day Wednesday chasing house fires along side the fire department (arson). Glad I didn’t wear white. But this summer, I went against my better judgement several times and wore all white to work. Check out the five times I dressed in all white everything and managed to stay stain free.
