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!

Coffee Graphic T-Shirt | Outfit of the Day

Most Mondays make you wish it was Sunday again. If you wear the right shirt on Monday morning, no one will approach you unless they see your coffee cup in your hand. (Lol) This OOTD is based around a fun graphic t-shirt sponsored by ToSave.com. A good graphic t-shirt never goes out of style and here’s why. If you love or connect with something enough to wear it on your chest all day then it’s your “thing”, so you should feel comfortable going for it! Graphic t-shirts are can also be a fun light hearted way to show your interest to the would and possibly connect silently with others who read it. Want an easy way to make new friends? Start by wearing a cool graphic t-shirt to attract your tribe. Enjoy!

Spring Playsuits | OOTD

Playsuits are not just for kids and this OOTD will prove it to you. We all know how adorable little kids look in “all in ones” and adults look just as cute. Lol My playsuit sponsored by Tobi is basically a romper that provides you all of the freedom to move around and get frisky as you see fit.

This one is so much fun because of the vibrant color and the fun front tie. You don’t always expect to see an orange playsuit but when you do you can’t look away. It’s loose enough to catch the breeze and fitted enough to make you feel like an adult. I dressed this look up by putting on a bold heel but you can easily dress it down with a cool  sneaker.

As usual, I am always looking for ways to make my looks bold and the color of this playsuit combined with the cobalt blue wristlet, and denim fringe shoes is the perfect combination. 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!

Maximizer Halter Dress | OOTD

I’ll keep the words to a minimum because honestly, this dress speaks for itself. It passes the mom test (bending over & chasing little ones) and does double duty as a duster. You can layer it over another dress or top and jeans just to name a few. I have a direct link to the website where you can get this fabulous piece. I’m done talking, leave me a comment and tell me what you think of this gem! 

Dress- A Leap of Style

Extreme Bell Sleeves and Dr. Denim OOTD

The only place I love drama is in my wardrobe so these extreme bell sleeves are just perfect. The bright burnt orange is exactly how you start spring. Even better is that this top is actually a dress! It does double duty for you so you get the most wear out of you spring wardrobe. I’ve also threw in some unconventional denim to bring even more interest to this look.  The denim is by Dr. Denim and is a new cut dedicated to the “carrot” shape. It has all of the comfort of a mom jean plus the style. Its high rise and loose fit make it great to wear almost anywhere.  An easy heel helps to make this look a bit more polished. It’s such a fab look for all of my care free girls. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think about 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.

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think about this look. I want to know what you think will work for you. 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!

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.
