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.


Striped Off the Shoulder Dress | OOTD

Y’all!! This dress!! (And this colorful home!) When I got ready to go shoot this look, we were driving out of our neighborhood looking for a cool place when we saw our neighbor’s home and thought, “That’s amazing!” Her yellow door and art work on the steps made my DIY heart skip a beat! I went to chat with my neighbor and she was kind enough to let me photograph this look right in front of her beautiful home. Thank you Terri!

Amazon is my go to for nearly everything now. I love to order things and have it show up on my door step 2 days later with my Prime account. It saves me time and trips to the store. My amazon habits are not limited to house hold goods anymore. I find some surprisingly wonderful things at low prices to wear on Amazon nowadays and here is one wonderful off the shoulder dress to prove it to you.

I adore the vertical stripes and the amazing colors in this dress. I think this dress just meshes well with summer themed parties, picnics, festivals and pretty much anything celebratory. The material has a gauze feel that makes it wonderful for airflow on hot Houston days.

Anything that allows me to “throw something” on and run out of the house is absolutely a win in my book. I’m all about being care free in as many ways as humanly possible and this dress does it for me. Leave me a comment about your favorite carefree thing to wear. 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!

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!

Fashion Resolutions | OOTD

It’s nearly February and I am doing well on my new year improvements but I have yet to make any concrete fashion resolutions. I was recently inspired by Bonobos.com to share some of my fashion resolutions for 2017 because they’re focusing on varied textures and the perfect fit for their new collection.

Just like any other improvements, writing things down make it more visible to you and keeps you reminded of your goals. It will be nice to look back on this blog post months from now to see how I’m sticking to my plans as well as how I change through out the year.

My first fashion resolution is to include more textures into my wardrobe. I plan to do this by taking my fuzzy sweater collection to the next level. (Ha ha!) Seriously though, having a piece that is more textured and not just a cotton blend will really help add interest to an entire look. In this OOTD, a mock neck fuzzy sweater with an interesting side slit does it for me.

My second resolution is to experiment more with monochromatic looks. I love this look on others as well as myself, but I find it tough to make sure my “blacks match” Lol Outside of that color, there is a lot of room for styling similar colors together to achieve a monochromatic look with out it matching “perfectly.” I met this goal in this OOTD by choosing a pant that is a few shades darker than my sweater.

My final fashion resolution for 2017 is to consistently add in bold accessories to give my entire look a pulled together feel with flare. The bold gold earrings and rosy sunglasses make this look feel complete with a slightly retro vibe. Most popular sunnies nowadays are super reflective or completely opaque so I’m stepping outside of the box with floral print sunnies.

I’m sure it will be a challenge to consistently incorporate theses elements into my looks but I welcome it!  As always, the details for this look are listed below with links. I’d love it if you left me a comment about your fashion resolutions. Enjoy!
