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 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!

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!

OTS Embroidered Dress | OOTD

It’s so awesome when you have a piece that you can quickly change to give it a new look. Today, it’s this fabulous velvet off the shoulder dress. This dress is stretchy in all of the right places and the placement of the embroidery is ultra feminine.

By now, you know that I styled this look with my converse. I literally couldn’t live without them. They are a daily part of my life just like family. Lol This dress could easily be dressed up for a fancy night out with your bae or a girls night. For a day look, I kept it super casual with chucks and a denim jacket.

If you get this dress, I’d love to see how you style it so send me pictures, comments, or an email to let me know! Enjoy!

Metallic skirt

If you don’t have a metallic piece in your closet yet, your’e missing out on a lot of fun! This metallic skirt is versatile and can go casual or dressy. This skirt goes to work, holiday parties, and out for a night on the town. You can find them is many tones and different colors to match your style. Gold happens to be my metal so I fell in love with this one instantly.

When styling this OOTD I chose a casual look and paired it with one of my tried and true sweatshirts that I’ve had for over three years. The truth is any cool graphic sweatshirt will work.  Next, I added in my trusty comfortable black converse and my old faux leather jacket. As you can see this OOTD is super simple to put together but makes a big impact. It also helps you to remember how important it is to have staple pieces in your closet. I’ve created a completely new look with only one new pleated metallic skirt. I call that a victory yall!

Leave me a comment about the new piece your’e mixing with old items from your closet. Enjoy!

Green with Travel Envy | OOTD

Holiday season means travel season too! Most of us will be doing traveling of some sort over the next few months so why not look fashion forward at the same time? The good news is you can, EASILY!

My peeps over at Zaful.com sponsored this beautiful matching sweater and skirt set that will make traveling in style a breeze. When it comes to travel, having a matching set takes the guess work out of the age old question, “what do I wear?” The “ripped” look of this set adds a lot of interest for my folks that refuse to wear boring clothes. I layered a thin tan blazer sponsored by Rosegal.com  over this set to compliment the green color and keep the airport/airplane chill away. Comfy shoes are a must for running to your gate so my Chucks were an easy choice. Grab your carry on bag and you’re ready to look like a true fashionista while hitting the road.

Leave me a comment and tell me about you favorite travel attire. Enjoy!

Rosy Knit | OOTD

The first thing you MUST know is that I thrifted this rosy knit dress for around $3. I KNOW!!!! The second this you should know is…this is the perfect way to “do” Fall in Houston. It’s still warm but it is finally cooling off so having a loosely knit sweater is the way to go. I know you must be wondering what I’m wearing underneath. I took a walk on the bold side so I opted for a sleeveless body suit/leotard. Of course if you’d like this look to be more modest you could wear a slip dress for more coverage.

You know I can’t live with out my seasoned converse. They really help keep this look casual and effortless. I styled my trusty denim jacket with this look just in case the wind blows and I catch a chill on my barely covered backside. Lol A nice stand out pair of sunnies to complete this look and you are good to go. Enjoy!

Spice Up Your T-Shirt

Most of us have what seems like thousands of basic t-shirts. They function as is but sometimes you may feel the urge to do a little bit more with them. When the feeling hits you, go for easy layering. It will give your basic tee new life and give you several new looks.

Most of you know I practically live in Old Navy so this ENTIRE look is from there. I chose a thin olive green button down shirt to layer underneath my relaxed fit striped tee. Add in a pair of black rockstar jeans and chucks and now my tee looks #neverbasic.

This is also perfect for people like me who get cold very easily. I’ll be layering up as soon as Houston cools down. How would you layer a basic tee to give it new life? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear. Enjoy!

Brunch Squad | OOTD

The weekend is near and with that come everyones favorite weekend activity, brunch!  Who doesn’t want to be apart of the brunch squad? It’s delicious food, day drinking and good company. I have the ideal outfit that will leave extra rom for all the food you’ll eat. Lol

I love a good graphic sweatshirt so this one is absolutely perfect for the weekends. Since weekends are all about being cute yet comfortable, casual is the way to go. For this OOTD, I took a cool graphic sweatshirt that I loved (cute tank underneath just in case I get warm), paired it with thrifted  denim shorts and topped it off with the best thing fall has to offer (a moto jacket)! On my feet are my converse because duh, they go with everything. A nice pair of sunnies for the morning drive and sitting outside and I was all set. The best thing about this look is after brunch, I can take off my shorts and crawl right into bed to sleep off all the food. Enjoy!

Victoria Dashiki | OOTD

I wore this victorian inspired dashiki in NewYork during NYFW 2016 and it made me feel like a ball of fire:untouchable and hot. The rich variations of reds, oranges and yellows give that blaze effect. It was as though I left a trail of flames in my every step. When you’re wearing the right clothing, it should make you feel invincible. I can’t tell you how many strangers loved this top and stopped me to ask about it. Every now and then, you must make a statement and on this day, I did it in this fabulously ruffled top. Enjoy!
