Graphic Pullover + Boyfriend Jeans

My summer vacation as a teacher has officially ended. I had my first day back to school and I am so tired. I always say, “There is no tired like the first day of school tired.” As I prepared this blog post all I can think about is how often we ask our children to be “nice” to each other. At school and at home it is a word that I used generously.

I find that as adults we tend to forget about being nice to ourselves! We do things we don’t like, each foods that make us feel bad sometimes and wear clothes that our bodies find restricting. We should all take a moment or two to think about how we can be nice to ourselves and try to remember to do that often.

For me, dressing comfortably especially when I’m with my son is one way that I’m nice to myself. Old Navy sponsored this look that allows me to run and play with my son while I look stylish. There is nothing worse than pulling and tugging on your clothing while you’re trying to focus on having a good time with your babies. A colorful comfortable pull over with boyfriend jeans and sandals that stay on you feet if just right for a day of fun and play. Find ways to be kind to yourself and do it daily! Enjoy!

Orange Halter Bikini

This is a flash blog post!! (Meaning that I wrote it past midnight and I have work in the morning!)

I just got back from my vacation and I couldn’t hold on to this a amazing deal any longer! I found this AMAZING orange halter top two piece swimsuit with amazing details on Amazon for $8! You read that right, I said $8 y’all!!!

I always browse Amazon for good deals but when I stumbled upon this one I couldn’t believe it. I was fumbling over the keyboard of my computer trying to order it as fast as I could. The swim material is great and the construction is sound. I wasn’t worried about loosing my top as I had fun and that’s a big deal. When you have a full chest like I do, that is on the top of your list of concerns. Lol

Let me know what you think of this deal and if you’d like to see more great Amazon deals like this! Enjoy!

Shop in Your Man’s Closet for a Sporty Look


The sporty athleisure look has been around for quite awhile now but if you haven’t tried it yet, I have a brilliant way to  get you started! Go looking through your man’s closet and you will find just what you need to get that oversized slouchy look without putting to much effort into it.

Start by looking through your guy’s side of the closet. Look for baseball jerseys and anything that has at least a few buttons going down the front.  Once you find that section of the closet look for your favorite colors, patterns, and prints. Now that you have one that you like, put it on and undo the first two or three buttons. At this point, arrange the shirt so that it hangs off of one shoulder or you can have it hang completely off both shoulders.

That was the hard part. Now, you get to spice up this slouchy oversized look with some other items to to make this look feel more pulled together. Think shoes, purses, earrings, and jeans. To make my styling more feminine, I matched a fitted deconstructed jean with high heels that are colorful and funky. Feel free to play around with this because the possibilities are endless.

Now you are all set to go out and have fun plus, you will be comfortable doing  it! Enjoy!

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!

Retro Floral | Outfit of the Day

Sometimes when I thrift shop I find nothing. Other times it is obvious that the thrift gods are on my side. I was able to get this beautiful print for less than $5 from a resale shop. To make things even better, I got these wide leg high rise jeans from Target for about $9. I’ve had these wedge sandals for about three years (but they came from target) and my friends over at Charming Charlie hooked me up with the accessories. My necklace, sunglasses and tote was sponsored by Charming Charlie.

Not only is this look super comfortable, the retro vibes feel really good.
