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.


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!

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!

Keeping It Casual | OOTD

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.

Leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite go to casual look is. Enjoy!

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

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

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.

The other day someone told me that I had a brave haircut. I smiled and on the inside I wished everyone felt like they could do something brave with their hair. You may think having an undercut  would really limit how you can style your hair but for me the possibilities seem endless. I put together a snapshot of ten styles I could create with an undercut and box braids. Hopefully this will give you the push you need to do something “Brave” with your hair. Leave me a comment about which style is your favorite.  Enjoy!


  1. Top Knot

2. Side Braid

3. Side swept & down 

4. Straight back braid 

5. Ponytail 

6. Half up, half down 

7. Low ponytail (hidden under cut)

8. Low twisted side bun

9. Bow up do 

10. Messy bun

Peplum Cami + Nuetrals | OOTD

When your whole life comes from Old Navy!!!! Lol I do have favorite stores where I shop but it’s rare that I have an entire look that comes from one store. Well Old Navy, you’ve done it! From my sunnies to my shoes this complete look comes from Old Navy. 

This OOTD is completely composed of nuetrals. It’s no secret that I love black and white but hunter green and navy are on the top of my favorites list too. These nuetrals are forever in a revolving list of pieces that can be mixed and matched. They came in handy while I was traveling for two weeks with a limited wardrobe. Leave me a comment and tell me what’s your favorite store to get complete looks from, Enjoy! 

How to Style Boyfriend Jeans

For some ladies boyfriend jeans may be a bit scary to tackle because they are the epitome of things that are not feminine. They’re not fitted, and don’t show off any curves. Most girls are concerned about looking like a slouch in them but I’m going to show you a way to style them so that you look and feel great while you’re wearing them.

Try pairing your boyfriend jeans with something super feminine! It’s an automatic way to balance things out. For this look I chose a red and white floral top with a front tie. I mean, whats more girly that flowers! This works so well because it shows just a sliver of mid drift which is another way to feel sexy with out feeling over exposed.

I decided on my converse sneakers because I was going on a walking tour in Riga. I also took along a long sleeve shirt just incase it got cool while we were out. This resulted in a cool and comfy look that was fit for being active yet looking fashion forward. Leave me a comment to tell me about your favorite way to style boyfriend jeans, Enjoy!
