Trina Turk + Authentically B| Style Editorial

I’m super excited to finally share this with everyone! This was a fashion editorial published by Mud Magazine. There’s beautiful video as well as photos for this story so feel free to share. The inspiration behind it is that of a young woman who seeks the freedom of her existing life to transform into a alternate reality of fun, pleasure, and independence. She escapes to a motel where she can let loose and be liberated. Leave a comment and tell me what you think. Enjoy!

High Waisted Push Up Bikini | Outfit Of The Day

If you’re looking for a high waisted push up bikini for this swim season I’ve found two that I think you’ll love from Zaful.com . You may remember my high waisted push up bikini from last swim season that came from Old Navy. I’ve remixed that same swimsuit  this year by simply adding a fun summer bananas graphic t-shirt over it to give it a new look.

Sometimes when you head out to the pool you can feel a bit exposed. You’re basically in your underwear so layering a cool t-shirt on top of your swim top could be the answer to feeling more clothed at the pool this summer. Leave me a comment about your favorite swim looks and ways to not feel so naked at the pool. Enjoy!

Bold Spring Prints | OOTD

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 sponored 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!

Easter Inspiration | OOTD

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!

Spring Bomber & Strappy Cami | OOTD

This OOTD is all about transitioning to Spring! I’m so ready for it and I know you are too! You’ve seen this floral bomber styled in another OOTD but I love it so much that I decided to remix it again. You’ll being see this piece a lot this season since it’s so fun, bold, and versatile.

I love looks that  are bold and or edgy  with the option to dress it up or down easily. This one is just perfect! The bomber is bold and the maxi skirt has a double split giving it some pizazz. My v-neck cami creates a perfect shape for layered necklaces while opening up a very “covered up” outfit. You could obviously put on a wedge or heel with this look but the other option is a sneaker (my Chuck’s duh!)

Leave me a comment about which shoe YOU would put on with this look, enjoy!

Floral Bomber | OOTD

We’re about to “fall” into “spring” “weather” we want to or not. (See what I did there?!?! Lol) I’ve taken a proactive step by getting my hands on this floral bomber before it’s too late. I love this because it says spring, but is not too bright. The black back ground color helps to keep that in check. I took it a step further by adding in a floral top that isn’t quite a busy as the bomber.

An OOTD would not be the same from me if I didn’t touch on the bold/edgy element of a look. In this look, it’s the color block pleated skirt and converse combo. If it were not for the black background in the bomber and shirt, I’m not completely sure that this would still gel as well. The cherry on top is my round retro mirrored sunglasses. They will take you right through spring into summer.

Plaid Off The Shoulder Dress | OOTD

This plaid off the shoulder dress makes me feel like a complete bad ass! I feel like I’m draped in something bold which is what I live for. At first glance, this plaid off the shoulder dress just looks like it’s just, well, um, plaid! Ha ha! However, the details make this dress. Unlike most off the shoulder dresses I’ve seen, there are cool buttons down the center of the front. There is also separation of the draped fabric in the front, allowing for more movement in the dress. Now when I wear this dress I feel like I’m moving fluidly through out my day.

Last but most definitely not least is adding in the shoes and accessories. Like many of my style decisions, I ended up pair my absolute favorite pair of sneakers with this dress. You can never go wrong with Chuck Taylor’s. A faux leather jacket, sunnies, and a faux leather cross body purse and your’e unstoppable.

Plaid and Yellow | OOTD

Happy Friday yall!

I am all about bold styling so this look is apart of my happy place 🙂 I will keep this short because this look speaks for it’s self but a fun pair of sunglasses can go a long way. The color blocking design of my sunnies and the plaid on my pants are on the same page but my sleeveless coat is the bold pop of color we all love. The overall look is a bit edgy and bold but there is also something classic about it too. The classic element is in the coat. While the collar in pretty broad, the crossover & tie closure will be done again and again until the end of time.

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think about this look, enjoy! 🙂

Bold Holiday Look | OOTD

We are well into the holiday season which means there are a few more holiday parties to hit. Why not step outside of the box a bit more for your holiday party look? One of my favorite quotes is, “People will stare, make it worth their while” , and this look matches that idea. The cool thing about this look is that I didn’t really have to purchase anything new. All of these pieces were already living in my closet with the exception of my fun new purse.

I like things that are a little unexpected so I went ALL IN with my head wrap. I see women wear head wraps often but how many times have you seen one fabulously styled with a sequins dress at a holiday party? !? I can’t say that I have. Lol

I wore this sequins dress to my blog anniversary party back in October. The great thing about this black and white sequins dress is that it translates to so many occasions. That’s the beauty of classic colors. I thrifted this red 3/4 sleeve  coat nearly a year ago and I’ve finally been about to break it out. The details on this coat are amazing and its the perfect pop of color.This pop of color/contrast can be in any color and it would have the same effect. 

This look could easily be overwhelming and “too much” but because everything is black & white except for the coat, everything fits right into place. The only thing left to do is put on a red lip and grab a fun purse.

Leave me a comment about your favorite bold look for the holidays. Enjoy!
