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!

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!

The Golden Hour with L’occitane

As Mother’s Day quickly approaches I’m beginning to think about what I can get the woman that isn’t easily impressed (my mom.) She’s a decisive woman who knows exactly what she likes. L’Occitane sponsored a Terre De Lumiere set for me that includes the perfume, shower gel and body lotion and my mom noticed right away! She loves the way it smells and of course she asked me where I got it from. With out answering her question, I rambled on about the amazing inspiration behind the scent. The creators took a special moment, “the golden hour”, and found a way to bottle it and make it last forever. Delicate aromas of lavender, honey and almond from the South of France make it subtle yet unforgettable.

It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted to give her a bottle of Terre De Lumiere from L’Occitane. On top of the perfume, I plan to add in the gentle shower gel and the beautifying body lotion.  All three of these amazing things are conveniently put together in a cool gift set to make shopping easy for a busy girl like myself.

As always, let me know what you think when you order your own Terre De Lumiere set, I know you’ll love it! 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!

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.

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think about this look, enjoy! 🙂

Happy Fri-Yay! Today’s OOTD is quite simple and what I’d call, the epitome of casual style. Thanks to this Zaful.com for sponsoring this sweet shirt and Shein.com for sponsoring this ultra cool hat!

It means throwing on a comfy pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, a loose button down with cute details, adding in your favorite pair of sneakers, and topping it off with a cool fedora hat. If I could wake up every morning and wear this same exact outfit, I would. It’s safe to say this will be one of my new go to looks for all things casual.

Ombré Faux Fur + Trouser Pant| OOTD

It went from hot to freezing in Houston and I’m happy about it because I can legitimately break out ALL of my faux furs!! This look is sooooo much fun all because of its unexpected elements.

First, lets talk about the elephant in the room, this ombre faux fur sponsored by SammyDress.com! I can’t lie, when I got this jacket in the mail I immediately opened it and petted it for 10 minutes. Lol It is so cozy and eye catching. This coat is for the bold, fearless, edgy woman. Just get one and think about it later! You wont regret it. Ha Ha!

I found this shameless “So Damn Magical” graphic tee at Beehive Houston. I went to a shopping event there not long ago. Not only did I have a great time, I found these cool pieces and got to hang out with amazing people. A simply worded tee with a loose fit but feminine light pink lettering is so perfect for my life. I’m not huge into pink but the symbolism in these words written in this color just did something for me.

As soon as I put my first leg into these pants I knew they’d be a perfect fit. The have a high rise, cool slits on either leg, and beautiful front seam details. What more could a girl ask for?

If you haven’t gotten a chance to visit the store in Rice Village go check it out. It is such a cute place to shop with pretty great prices. If I can afford it on a teachers salary than anyone can. Lol

Casual NYE | OOTD

If your’e doing something a little less formal this New Year Eve and you just want to feel like a total bass ass this look will work for you. What I love about it is the unexpected details with the comfort of a t-shirt and shorts.

This mock neck top is soft and basically no frills…until you get to the faux fur on the sleeve then its EVERYTHING! Three bands to be exact and it’s just enough interest to raise a few eyebrows. The skirt is actually a skort (skirt & short combo) so you can totally rock a “short skirt” with out worrying about showing to much. Again, the skirt is simple until you lay your eyes on the lace up details on the left side. A comfortable wedge shoe a caged look and a small bag and I’m good to go.

Velvety New Year | OOTD

A new year is upon us and we know a fabulous outfit won’t just plan itself. Ha ha! I’m so happy to bring you some New Year Eve inspiration this year! Although what we wear on NYE is important, the focus of this NYE look in how you want to feel.  

While I’m out enjoying my loved ones and bringing in the new year I want to feel carefree and fearless. For me being carefree often equates to being braless. Lol You may be a bit self conscience at first but at least you wont have to spend the hold night readjusting a strapless bra. This greenish black velvet dress is sexy with out showing too much and even a bit mysterious. It has a criss cross strappy back that adds interest to an otherwise simple dress. The dress is one piece so no need to worry about multiple items. All you have left is to add shoes and some simple accessories. Knowing Texas it will either be absolutely freezing or sweltering hot so be prepared to have a jacket of some kind. I actually thrifted the faux fur you see here for about $10. Needless to say I felt so lucky finding a practically new faux fur in black! I couldn’t pass it up.

Lastly, I know it’s tempting to break out a new pair of shoes but for your comfort, choose a tried and true shoe that you’ve broken in already. You won’t want to dance all night if your feet hurt.

Leave me a comment about your favorite New Year Eve Look. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.  Enjoy!

Natural Hair | Pompadour

I get a lot of questions about how long my hair is right now and if I feel like I have enough versatility with this haircut. Although I am somewhat limited in my style choices I am being forced to be more creative with styling my hair lately.

Honestly, this length is a tiny bit awkward because it’s long enough to flop down when curly and wet, but it doesn’t look cute. Ha Ha! I’ve had success with pin & tuck styles, braids, and twist outs. Now I’m adding this pompadour to the mix. This style is even easier than the pin and tuck style I posted last week.

  1. First, I used a blow dryer to stretch my hair out. As you can see I didn’t focus on the ends very much because the roots were more important.
  2. Second, I took a small section out of the front and put the rest in a ponytail toward the front of my head.
  3. Next, I took the hair that I left out in the front, placed it over the ends on my ponytail and smoothed it out.
  4. Lastly, I tucked and pinned the ends and Viola! The pompadour is complete.

I hope you like this style and I will be adding more styles to the blog as i make them up. Let me know if you have questions about this this or any other natural hair style and I’ll get them answered quickly. Enjoy!
