The best thing about spring and summer is the vibrant prints and colors that come along with it. The dresses, skirts, and shorts get shorter and the patterns get busier. When I received this dress sponsored by Tobi, I was so happy to see the vivid colors and contrast provided by the prints.
What I like most about this dress is the casual vibes that automatically come to mind when I put it on. I immediately felt like I was going on vacation. The ties at the shoulders are so adorable and you could even go braless if you wanted to really relax. To keep it casual and comfortable, I paired my trusty white converse with this look.
To add in yet another bold element I looked for one of the most fabulous accessories I could find. Milan Blocks sponsored this amazing acrylic clutch that has a detachable chain that allows you to use it as a cross body purse too! It’s a beautiful bright aqua blue with sparkly red lips on it. It is literally a show stopper! Purses like this run for $500+ or more and I was lucky enough to have found this one in Houston for under $100. I get to support a local female business owner and look so dang fabulous at the same time. Now that’s winning, enjoy!
Playsuits are not just for kids and this OOTD will prove it to you. We all know how adorable little kids look in “all in ones” and adults look just as cute. Lol My playsuit sponsored by Tobi is basically a romper that provides you all of the freedom to move around and get frisky as you see fit.
This one is so much fun because of the vibrant color and the fun front tie. You don’t always expect to see an orange playsuit but when you do you can’t look away. It’s loose enough to catch the breeze and fitted enough to make you feel like an adult. I dressed this look up by putting on a bold heel but you can easily dress it down with a cool sneaker.
As usual, I am always looking for ways to make my looks bold and the color of this playsuit combined with the cobalt blue wristlet, and denim fringe shoes is the perfect combination. Enjoy!
This OOTD is in honor of transitioning between seasons. We are in the midst of spring with summer around the corner. All I can think about is getting my hands on cute spring pieces that will take me well into summer. Things that will keep me cool and dry along with bright bold colors. This Only Girl Strapless Shift Dress sponsored by Tobi is on Sale for $13 bucks and is too dang cute to pass up. It has mesh paneling at the midriff area and hem. How often have you seen that? Seems perfect for the beach huh?
The color is stunning and it moves so well. Being in Houston makes me appreciate a garments that flows and has great ventilation. (Ha ha) This dress has both and is uber stylish. Anytime I’m wearing something that is a solid color I love to spice it up with even more color or prints. The glasses I’m wearing in this look adds contrast and color that I look for in my styling. A simple gold necklace from Charm Envy, a pair of gold shoes from Ippo, and an Elaine Turner bag completed this look.
As Mother’s Day quickly approaches I’m beginning to think about what I can get the woman that isn’t easily impressed (my mom.) She’s a decisive woman who knows exactly what she likes. L’Occitane sponsored a Terre De Lumiere set for me that includes the perfume, shower gel and body lotion and my mom noticed right away! She loves the way it smells and of course she asked me where I got it from. With out answering her question, I rambled on about the amazing inspiration behind the scent. The creators took a special moment, “the golden hour”, and found a way to bottle it and make it last forever. Delicate aromas of lavender, honey and almond from the South of France make it subtle yet unforgettable.

This look was all about what some people fear. Not everyone enjoys being in the spot light or easily spotted. It’s no secret that when you wear a color explosion it makes people stop and look. This is a really easy way to incorporate color into your wardrobe with out thinking too much. A fabulous graphic tee combined with a bright pant to give you the maximum fashion chills. Last but not least, metallic oxford lace up shoes. This is a fashion statement that leaves people wanting jump off the edge into color explosions themselves.
A colorful, vibrant purse and wallet are easy ways to have a constant pop of color in your life. It’s no myth that color effects our moods so having a daily pick me up incorporated into you wardrobe seems like a no brainer to me. As always, leave me a comment and tell me what you think about this look. Enjoy!
With the holiday of renewal and life (Easter) coming up this is the best time to find something short, sweet and casual to wear after church. Maybe I should have just started with “this dress has two pockets” but it is pretty dang cute. Its cool pink,yellow, and gray color blocked arrangement with a slimming design is all you’ll need. It has a loose fit so eat all you want. Ha ha! Grab a big purse to stuff your kids eggs in and some comfy sneakers and have fun with your family. Enjoy!
I’ll keep the words to a minimum because honestly, this dress speaks for itself. It passes the mom test (bending over & chasing little ones) and does double duty as a duster. You can layer it over another dress or top and jeans just to name a few. I have a direct link to the website where you can get this fabulous piece. I’m done talking, leave me a comment and tell me what you think of this gem!
