Hey Loves!!

 

I don’t know about you, but I am enjoying this closet remix series. Its giving me a new perspective on how to re work a few pieces in my closet. About a month or two ago, I featured this ruffle sleeve blouse on the blog (Click HERE) with a pair of jeans and flats. This time, I remixed it with my new favorite pair of denim shorts and my Valentino, look for less, studded pumps. I like the juxtaposition of a classic white shirt vamped up with the ruffle sleeve and ripped denim shorts together. Its like two different people coming together and vibin’ just the same!

 

Speaking of, I had brunch this weekend with my blogger boo, Renae, of The Ultimate Style Diary. Renae and I “met” on Instagram! She has followed my blog and I hers. She is a native of New Orleans and is one of the sweetest and realest people I know. I wanted to share her blog with you today because I feel its important to spread love in this blogging community. Sometimes, it can be very competitive and challenging. But, I always believe we can all make it together. It should never be a “You Cant’ Sit With Us” mentality (although some folks are like that). Renae has a unique sense of style that I love (I mean, check out that watermelon clutch) and feel that you will too!

 

Meeting Insta-friends on the ‘gram?

You know, its funny, but I have met a few people that I follow or follow me on Instagram and now we do brunch or hang out. Believe it or not, Instagram is like a new way of meeting people. Its great to meet new people who you share a common bond with and can get to know over lunch or coffee. I use to say no new friends, but blogging has changed that for me. I enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them. It makes blogging more personable and allows me to connect with others. Instead of feeling like a girl behind a computer wondering, is anyone even reading this? Lol.

 

So please be sure to check out my girl Renae blog and her Instagram. We had so much fun chit chatting over brunch and taking pics of each other. That blog life is real honey!

white shirt dress, closet remix, j crew factory shirt dress

Original look from 2 years ago!

 

Hey loves!

 

So here is part 2 of the closet remix series. I love this J. Crew Factory white shirt dress that I wore on the blog about two years ago (see original post HERE). Shirt dresses have a way of being super casual or nicely dressed up. So I decided to show both versions of a casual, every day vibe vs. a dressed up version with heels and a statement bag. You can not go wrong with either look. When I wore this dress for my photo shoot, it was sooo comfortable. I could have worn it the entire day. But, mommy duty called and that typically means wearing white is a disaster waiting to happen lol.

 

White shirt dresses offers a really clean, crisp spring look. But, any color shirt dress will give you just the same vibe. The one I am wearing is, as I stated, is about two years old. But, shirt dresses don’t go out of style. You can jazz them up with a corset belt or a colorful scarf. The options are endless. Most importantly, they are a tried and true staple piece and I am definitely picking up a few other colors and prints for the summer.

 

What are your weekend plans?

I cannot wait for the weekend, its filled with plans for one of my favorite things to do. Eat! lol. I am not sure if I mentioned this here, but I will be in Las Vegas next week for our annual girls trip. Oh the fun that will be had! So I’ll be gearing up with last minute purchases and trying to get my house in order before I leave. My mom always said to make sure your house is in order before you leave town. So a little grocery shopping is in order and preparing a few meals so the hubby can throw them in the microwave. A wife and mother’s job is never done I tell you!

 

Also, I plan to share with you some of the clothing pieces I got in for my trip, once they’ve all arrived. So stay tuned to my Instagram to find out more!

 

Have a great weekend!

closet remix, shein geometric print maxi dress

Original Look!

 

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have to make a little something happen with my wardrobe and do a little refresh. I think we all have those moments of feeling that we have nothing to wear (which is basically truth, but hey). So sometimes it is necessary to do a little closet remix to some looks of the past and make old things new again. Enter this dress! You all LOVED this SheIn geometric print maxi dress last summer (Click HERE for the original post). I think this dress is my most popular blog post and I am here for it! This dress is gorgeous for any occassion and is UNDER $40! Yes, ITS STILL AVAILABLE!!

 

So I wanted to give you all a little closet remix featuring this dress so you can see multiple ways of styling it. What better way to feature the dramatic split up front by pairing it with a little distressed denim. I think it adds a whole new vibe to this dress along with the sexy, fringe sandal and navy clutch. In my original look, I kept it simple with brown sandals and a handbag. But, in this closet remix version, I edged it up with the denim, fabulous right? This dress is an “attention getter”, so if you want to feel amazing… WEAR THIS!

 

I hope this post gave you a little inspiration on how to rework pieces in your closet. I know sometimes it seems I am always wearing new stuff (ok, in some ways I am) so I wanted to take a key piece and remix it for a fresh look. This look is Part I in my  “CLOSET REMIX” series and I hope you follow along.

Which look is your favorite?

 

So tell me, which look is your favorite, the original or the remix??

 

And are you feeling the overhead shot in the pathway? For some reason, I think of a scene from one of the music videos in Solange’s new album lol. Isnt she EVERYTHING? Love her!

Hey there!

So let’s talk about SheIn or SheInside clothing for a minute today, Ok? I get tons of questions from followers, friends, family, aunties, cousins, everybody and their mama about SheIn. Lol. Is it safe to order? Will I order one thing and get another? Will it be five sizes too small? Does it look the same as the picture? How long will it take to order? I totally get it. To tell you the truth I would have those same questions and reservations about ordering from an online retailer overseas. For me, I need to feel safe about using my credit card and really just getting what I paid for. So let’s address some of the questions I receive about SheIn and why I feel its totally fine for you to order.

 

Oh and this sweatshirt AND leggings are from SheIn by the way!

 

Does it fit correctly? Will I order a small and get something a newborn can fit?

Ok, so thats not really the question I get about the newborn, but you know what I mean. I’ve seen the horror stories online about overseas retailers, where customers get the tiniest little dress or top when they order. That’s a hot mess for sure! In my experience with SheIn, I have never ordered anything where the size was significantly smaller then what I ordered. Now, there was ONE piece I ordered, a shirt, that was way too big on me. In this case, I feel that they mis-marked the size. What I stress to everyone who is interested in ordering is to READ THE REVIEWS!!! If the item I am interested in does not have reviews, I will more than likely not order it. The reviews are so helpful to me in determining what size to wear, quality and fit.

Take for instance the leggings I am wearing in the above pics. All of the reviews noted to SIZE UP! So thats what I did. I definitely agree that the leggings run small. So again, read the reviews and make a decision before ordering. This will  help you to feel more at ease about the fit. I almost always tell you in my blog post if an item is true to size or to size up/down when I am wearing SheIn. So be sure to look for that information as well!

 

Does It Look the Same In the Picture?

Yes it does. Simply put huh?

 

How is the quality??

Ok everyone, huddle around so you can hear this loud and clear. Lol. The quality to me is no different than Forever 21 and SOMETIMES H&M. I have received one or two things where I felt that the fabric should of been a little heavier in weight or the fabric felt a bit thin/see thru to me. I have washed and worn all of my pieces quite a few times. This is where I say, if you take care of your clothes, it will last. This has been the case with all of my orders. I have had no issues with the item falling a part on me or losing shape in the wash. So just wash them carefully and take care of them!!

 

My suggestion: check out the product details and see what the fabric is made of. That will give you an indication of what to expect such as if it would look cheap, see thru or too thin.

 

How long does it take to receive it?

 

I typically receive my order in about 2 weeks. So don’t order it today expecting to get it Friday. No ma’am!

 

Is it safe to use my credit card?

Ok, so here’s the deal. I have not “purchased” anything from SheIn. Since I am a blogger, they allow me to pick a few pieces to feature on the blog. But, I have close friends who have ordered and I have not heard of any issues. Plus, lots of you have already ordered from them as well. So I have not received any emails from my followers stating there was ever an issue with their credit card. But of course, always be cautious when using your credit card online by monitoring your account for any funky activity. Safe to say that I have not heard of any issues.

 

Have I ever returned anything because of the fit/quality?

Yes, about three things I returned. Compare that to all of the items I have from SheIn (probably about 20) and its no different then purchasing an item at the mall or heck, Nordstrom’s.

 

Do I get paid to promote SheIn?

 

Girl I wish! I do earn commission from what you buy thru my Reward Style affiliate program. I kind of chatted about that in my last post. Did you read it? Read more about my Like to Know It post!

 

I hope this post has helped with answering any questions you may have regarding SheIn. Also, it appears they are having a little Pre-Summer sale for up to $40 off! How timely?!

Hey Loves!

So I thought I would start sharing some behind the scenes posts regarding the blog world. I get tons of questions regarding blogging and its high time I answer them. Today, I am  going to chat about Reward Style or “Like to Know It.” What is Like to Know It? Well, if you follow me on the Instagram, you may have seen the term, “sign up for Like to Know It” or “shop my looks with ‘Like to Know It’.” So lets discuss what it means to me as a blogger and to you as a consumer.

So what is it exactly?

Like to Know It is an app or web tool for bloggers to link products they are wearing on Instagram and their personal blogs. I go into the app, select the picture I want to post and link all the products using the tool from the app. Then the image is posted to Instagram. Once posted, the caption includes the url to shop the products and hash tag #likeit as well. As a consumer, this allows you to shop the products from that picture straight from your email. But, you have to be signed up for it FIRST!!

Once you are signed up, all you have to do is “LIKE” my pic on Instagram. Within minutes, the product information is sent directly to your email. This allows you to see where I purchased the item and buy. Its super easy and if you love what I wear, something you should definitely sign up for. They also created an app (FREE) for the consumer.  All you do is screenshot the post of me and shop it from the app. To be honest, I haven’t signed up for that service yet. I am just fine with tapping a pic on IG and calling it a day. I don’t need another app taking away more space on my Iphone, ok?!

Why do you use it as a consumer?

As a person who also uses this as a consumer, I use it constantly. I love using it when I want to know if a product I “liked,” should even be on my radar (how much is it?). Also, I don’t have to wait for a blogger to respond or find it myself. I just wait for the email to pop up and have at it. If you are concerned about getting too many emails, don’t! You can easily log in to your account and select how often you want to receive the emails or none at all.

Why do you use it as a blogger?

Ok, so this is a two fold question. 1) I use it so that my followers can easily shop what I am wearing. Lets face it, life gets busy and I am not always on Instagram readily available to answer questions and comments. So its great that all my followers have to do is sign up and go to their emails to find out the tea on what I am wearing. 2) I earn commission from the products you purchase via the links. I am not shamed at all for saying this pays me some coins!! Now I am not over here getting broke off, the commission is small. But, its definitely nice to see a few of those payments hit my account. #truthtea lol

Conclusion

So there you have it. I hope this has helped some of you who 1) want to become bloggers and want to know what services or tools you can use to monetize. 2)have been seeing this on my Instagram of Facebook and was wondering what the heck it is lol. If you are a blogger and are interested in applying for this program, feel free to email me. But, I will say they are selective on who they accept. And girl, that’s a whole other blog post on that one! Lol.

How do I sign Up?

Sign up for Like to Know It HERE and start shopping!! If you are not interested in signing up, no worries. Just click on the link in my Instagram profile and you can shop the products there! I got you boo!!

 

Stay tuned for more “behind the scenes” blog life info! Feel free to share with me what you would like me to chat about next!

High waisted pants can be a bit tricky to wear. It can sometimes cut you off and not elongate you. For me, my problem area is my stomach and sometimes high waisted pants may accentuate my belly. Trust me, I don’t want that accentuated AT ALL. But, these high waisted paper bag pants that I found at H&M??? In love!! I like how they are a little loose around the stomach area so that you can’t see my pooch. However, they hit my waistline perfectly and the length of the pants are da bomb. I saw my blogger boo, Marche Robinson from Robinson Style, rock a pair similar to these. I knew I had to go buy the ones she had or find something similar. H&M came thru in the clutch and all for $50 baby. Sold!!

 

Let me tell you, you guys are probably gonna get sick of me with my orange shoes and orange Michael Kors bag. But, I love pops of orange in the summer. It just refreshes a look, like wearing it with the army green top and khaki pants. It takes it up a notch!

 

These sunglasses tho’?!

Ok, so I happened to be in Nordstrom Rack the other week (um more like once a week) and I found these GORGEOUS pair of sunnies. I’ve been wanting a nude/ pink pair of sunglasses for a minute. But, most of the ones I found either washed me out or it was too big of a contrast against my skin tone. So when I put these babies on, I was shocked. The color of the sunnies were pure perfection on my complexion and the shape is amazing. These are by BOBBI BROWN  (the makeup artist, not Bobby Brown the King of R&B lol). I didn’t even know she had an eye wear collection!  The style name is “The Reagans” and I purchased them for $40. I could not find them on The Rack’s website. I could only find it for the original price on another website. So try to check your local Nordstrom Rack first to get it on the low, before paying the original price. I wore another Bobbi Brown style in my previous post (click here). So definitely check out her collection and fall in love with a pair or two like I did.

Camille loved it, she ate the whole thing!

Mothers Day gifts are something that should feel thoughtful and special to the one you love. I remember my first Mother’s Day a little after Camille was born about two years ago. Her father bought me a sweet charm bracelet and held Camille in his arms as she held the bag. It was the sweetest thing ever and of course I cried. Thoughtful gifts always come from the heart and thats the best feeling ever!

 

Mother’s Day is around the corner. Have you thought of Mothers Day gifts yet? Well, I have a great gift idea to share with you today. As you can see, my little and I are in the kitchen in this post cooking breakfast. Stuffed French Toast to be exact (click HERE for the Recipe)! Camille loves to help mommy in the kitchen. Every weekend we typically cook pancakes together, well we used to as she was on a pancake kick for a minute! Its always a pleasure to have my little helper in the kitchen and get a little messy with I must say. Which really made me think about getting us aprons, so we could get messy in the kitchen and not on ourselves for once!

 

So I was super excited to partner with Belle Eve Clothing on making us “Mommy and Me” aprons! They have quite a few options for “mommy and me” aprons or just Mommy or whoever! Our aprons came out perfect! The aprons are made out of cotton canvas and has a detachable bow (Camille’s came with one too, but I discovered it in her toy box after the shoot lol). When I showed the aprons to Camille she got VERY excited. One of her favorite books, “Billie B. Brown Bakery Adventure” shows the character and her friends at school, baking in the “bakery.” As soon as she saw the apron, she called it “my bakery” and put it on immediately. Lol. I had to plead with her to take it off. Toddlers I tell ya!

 

Belle Eve Clothing is a great Mothers Day gift option!

 

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this post and check out the Stuffed French Toast recipe. I found it on Pinterest. It was very easy to make and tasted delish! You can use any fruit you like and really make it your own. They are perfect to just grab and go, you dont even need syrup. They are sweet enough on their own!

 

Shout out to all the food bloggers out there, I was exhausted after this shoot. I don’t know how you guys do it cooking and taking pics at the same darn time. Well, I did have a toddler that I had to keep interested, but still. Hats off to you! Oh and thanks to my hubby who became Instagram husband for this shoot and putting up with my critiques of his picture taking abilities lol.

 

Be sure to check out Belle Eve’s line of aprons. I am sure you will find a perfect Mothers Day gift for the special lady in your life!

Jumpsuits are usually the first thing I look for when wondering what to wear to an event. They are an easy outfit considering its only one piece and tend to make a statement. I was recently inspired by a few jumpsuits that I saw on Pinterest of one of my favorite fashion bloggers, “Wendy’s Lookbook.” So I went to my favorite online store, ASOS, and immediately went to the search button and typed in “jumpsuits.” Well, that led to several pages that I did’nt particularly want to sift through.

 

Until I thought… I wonder if they have any cute denim jumpsuits?!

 

So when this off shoulder (yall know I love an off shoulder anything), ruffled, wide- legged beauty popped up. GIRL, I added it to my cart so fast. I am signed up with ASOS two day shipping service and I STILL could not wait for it to arrive!! Its seriously the most perfect, statement making jumpsuit for spring. Brunches, date nights, vacations! It will get so much love I cannot wait to wear it out again.

 

Ok, so how does this jumpsuit fit?

This fits true to size in my opinion, I ordered the size 4 and size 6 and kept the 6. My waistline like to act funny sometimes and I don’t always have time to play games. So I didnt want anything holding me back from wearing this jumpsuit. So the six fit me perfectly without being as snug in the tummy as the size four. Other than that, the fit gets a two thumbs up in my book!

 

Guess what, its now been marked down to $38!! Won’t He do it?!

 

I hope you have a great Easter weekend ahead. I will be attending church on Sunday and cooking dinner at home with my family. Easter always makes me so emotional. When I think of the sacrifice of a man who died for my sins, just so I could be me??

Its AMAZING!!
