Peach Mesh Dress |OOTD

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.

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!

Front Split Sweater | OOTD

Sometimes you come across a piece that is so interesting that you just can’t pass it up. That’s  exactly how I felt when I saw this fabulous sweater! It’s a beautiful mix between a long cardigan and a pull over turtle neck sweater. I like to go for bold looks and it’s definitely an eye catching piece. It is casual and has just the right amount of coverage for a skin tight body suit or a fitted pair of leggings.

My skirt is sponsored by A Day N June and has a very retro feel. The light wash of the denim and the front zipper, combined with the high waist not only make it a perfect fit, but gives it so many look options. Of course, my converse seal the deal with many of my looks and today is no different.

I like to describe this look as “monochromatic with interest.” Leave me a comment and tell me what you think about this outfit of the the day, enjoy!

Anne-Joelle Designs | Scarf Styling OOTD

What do you get the woman who has everything? You get them something that has been luxuriously hand crafted with the finest materials by an artist that you actually know! When I met artist Anne-Joelle, I was excited to hear about the processes that she uses to create her one of a kind 100% silk scarves and handbags. I was not disappointed.

What I find so beautiful about these scarves and handbags is that the unique designs are rich and vibrant. Unlike most scarves, the pigment is just as bright on the opposite side. With a beauty like this, you don’t have to constantly worry about adjusting your scarves to the printed side because they BOTH look like the printed side.

These Anne-Joelle scarves are very versatile but stand out even more when paired with the LBD (Little Black Dress) or other simple looks. All eyes with be on your bold scarf. An Anne-Joelle  “foulard” is a classic piece that you can permanently add to your wardrobe. The quality of these scarves made in England and France means it will literally last forever. Lol The finishing work on the hems tell you all you need to know. Each one is hand rolled and finished off with a neat professional hem. Style them as a classic scarf, head wrap, or even to adorn your fedora. The possibilities are endless.

Anne- Joelle‘s handbags include her original artwork as well as the craftsmanship of leathersmith Daniel Biller. The soft grain leather, faux suede finishing on the inside, and 34-in Italian gold chain is a show stopper. These handbags are like nothing you’ve ever seen and you won’t see EVERYONE carrying them.

If you are learning about Anne-Joelle for the first time, do check out the website along with the artist website to learn more. It is so special to know the artist who creates your pieces. Even better is that, she’s right here in Houston, Tx.  When you check out the website use promo code SPRING17 for 20% off your purchase.  Let me know what you think about these beautiful hand made scarves and ways to style them. 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!
