We all know skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple for men and women alike. If we’re going to have them in heavy rotation in our closets, shouldn’t they be the best? By the best I mean the perfect wash, uber comfortable AND holds their shape ALL DAY! Ann Taylor gave us some major upgrades in their skinny fit and it is beyond amazing.
We have all started our morning in the perfect pair of skinnies only to find by noon that we have baggy knee syndrome. With maximum stretch and recovery your skinnies from Ann Taylor will look fresh all day long.
For this Ann Taylor look I wanted a fun brunch look. Skinny denim is a no brainer but my double V knit top is the icing on the cake. It’s an amazing pop of orange color and the sliver of pink on the hem and sleeves is just so sweet.
I’m always looking for ways to add in textures, prints, and patterns and I was able to do that with my accessories. Ann Taylor’s floral statement earrings have so much dimension and texture. They help take my classic look to another level. To take this look up another notch, I added in a leopard fold over clutch. Lastly, a pair of multi colored striped wedge shoes sealed the deal.
When ever you feel like taking your classic look to new heights be sure that you have on your best Ann Taylor denim and spice it up with unique accessories. Enjoy!
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.
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!
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.

I have had my box braids out for a while now and because of the length of my hair I have had to become very creative with my hair styles. It is sort of an awkward stage when it’s not long enough for some things and not short enough to just leave it alone and wear it as is.
I would classify this look as a tuck & pin style. Tuck & pins are great for any hair length and every hair stays put because of all of the bobby pins you’ll use. To begin, I blew my hair out with my blowdryer. After it was stretched, I began at the very front in the center of my hair with a light braid/twist. Once each braid/twist is done, secure it with a bobby pin. Start on the right, twist and pin to the opposite side. Then move to the opposite side of your head and repeat. Continue this pattern until you reach the desired place you’d like to stop. Then use the same left to right pattern to braid out the remaining hair. Tuck it under and secure it with a bobby pin. It takes less than five minutes to do and people won’t believe that you did it yourself.
Leave me a comment about your favorite tuck & pin style. Enjoy!
