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!!

Hey loves!

Spring is here in Dallas! As a Michigander all of my life, Spring usually doesn’t hit Michigan until about May. So to have warm spring weather in Dallas in March always amazes me. But, I’m here for it because I can start transitioning winter pieces in my closet and remix them for spring! Like this velvet midi skirt I got a few weeks ago. I have been in love with it since I pulled it out of the package and the luxe velvet touched my fingertips. Was that too much? Sorry, but this skirt is just simply LOVELY and I want you to buy it!

 

If you are wondering how to wear velvet in Spring, the answer is pretty simple. You want to find a lightweight velvet piece that you can easily layer to go with the ever changing temps. The idea with extending velvet from Winter to Spring, is to make it more of a transitional piece that you can layer with multiple items in your closet. When I bought the skirt, my initial plan was to wear it with a sleek turtleneck and knee boots with a nice, streamlined coat and vampy lips. Well, I never got around to wearing that look since Spring got here so quickly. So I made some easy changes to make it spring ready! When I styled this look, it was one of those moments where I was desperate to make it happen. I was deep in my closet, searching on what to wear with this skirt. Nothing really stood out to me and I was close to giving up lol. Can I be honest with you for a sec? When I post looks on the blog, there is a little pressure there to get the look right. So I really go through it when I am creating an outfit because I don’t want y’all side eyeing me like “ummm girl, no!” lol.

 

Anyhoo, I am certainly pleased with this look. It has my name written all over it! I was glad that I was able to pair this velvet midi skirt with a few other spring transitional pieces such as the bomber jacket and the open toe booties (old Zara sale goody). I see myself wearing this look to events, church and brunch too!

 

I hope this post on how to wear velvet in spring gave you a few ideas. Do you have any velvet pieces in your closet that you want to carry in to spring? Let me know, I’d love to know how you plan to wear it!

Hey loves!

As you know, I was in New York a few weeks back for my very first New York Fashion Week (read about it here)! As you can imagine, packing for New York during the winter time is quite a feat. Not only do I need to be stylish, but stay warm as well. I mean, I’m all for fashion, but what I am not gonna do is freeze my butt off! So it was absolutely crucial to have pieces to layer and keep warm in, while enduring the cold while in NYC. Rent The Runway to the rescue!!

 

Rent The Runway is truly a great travel hack because you seriously save so much space in your luggage.  You can rent dresses, accessories, coats, pants and handbags too!! Which to me, is quite important as I am a pro- carry on kind of girl.  I love using packing cubes to save space in my luggage! Whats great about RTR is that you can go online, select your pieces and the date you need them and have them delivered your home, hotel or wherever. When I was in NYC last October, I rented a few dresses for our anniversary shoot and had them delivered to the hotel (see the shoot here and here). After my rental period was up, I simply returned them to the RTR store in NYC. If you are not in New York, don’t worry! You can totally return them via UPS as well. Seriously, how easy is that?!

 

Rent The Runway also has an Unlimited program where you can rent up to three pieces and keep them as long as you like for $139 a month. If you didn’t know, RTR has tons of designer items such as Marissa Webb, Derek Lamb, DVF, Zac Posen and lots more! Free shipping, dry cleaning and you can cancel at any time! So the next time you are planning your vacay and wondering what to wear, just head to RTR and have your selections delivered to you. I linked a few vacay ready pieces from Rent The Runway below.  What a great hack right? Saving luggage space and still slay? You are winning!

 

 

Have you rented from RTR before? I’d love to hear what you rented and how you liked the service!

 

Please share!

Hey loves!

So we all know we need a classic white shirt in our closet, but sometimes you need to jazz things up! When I found this ASOS ruffle sleeve shirt I immediately fell in love. The best part is that it’s only $52!  Thats quite a steal for such a unique  shirt! Its perfect for jeans, skirts, culottes and anything else. I love those pieces in your closet that makes a statement. It makes getting dressed a little bit easier because you don’t need much to make your outfit stand out. You just put on this shirt and make it do what it do! I’m here for that!

 

I posted this shirt on my Instagram last night and everyone fell in love with it. So I figured I would post this look today for those of you who may not have seen it. You might wanna grab this ASOS ruffle sleeve shirt immediately before it sells out. I definitely don’t want you to miss out or FOMO as today’s generation calls it lol.

 

Right now the fam and I are at home in our pjs full from breakfast and enjoying a relaxing day at home. I absolutely adore the weekends! Especially the ones when we make breakfast as a family, curl up on the couch with no real plans but the day ahead of us. I love a little get up and go, but I really enjoy and appreciate these moments even more.

 

What are your plans for today??

Valentine’s Day is around the corner y’all! Do you have any plans? Considering its like, on a Tuesday, we’ll probably be at home. I don’t get why some holidays just don’t fall on a weekend so we can all enjoy it, right? Anyhoo, I have a great Valentine’s Day outfit idea for you! I found this jumpsuit on my number one go to site, ASOS.com! Y’all its ONLY $31!!! So let me tell you, when I ordered this jumpsuit and received the package, my mind was already made to return this jumpsuit. It was one of those moments where I felt like I had spent so much money lately and was willing to return any and every thing to get a piece of coin back. LOL, you know what I’m talking about. But, something told me, girl open up that package and try it on!! Listen, when I slipped this white jumpsuit over these legs and zipped it up, it was love at first sight.

 

This jumpsuit is simply everything: the material,  the wide leg pant, culotte length and shoulder detail??!! It all commands attention and I cant wait to wear it out. After I drop about 5 pounds and get this tummy right that is. I don’t want to be held up in Spanx with this jumpsuit lol. Sometimes being able to breathe in your clothes is an amazing thing! As I type this post, this jumpsuit is only available in two sizes ( ugh!). But, continue to stalk the site for restocks!  In my opinion, jumpsuits are a great Valentine’s Day outfit idea. I mean I wore one for last years blog post (check it out HERE). Surely, this is one you don’t want to miss! I also linked a few other cute options for you below in case your size in this jumpsuit is not stocked.

Hey loves!

 

I know, I know I have been M.I.A!!! But, I am back! 2017 has been weird for me as I don’t feel like it’s a new year. So, I haven’t gotten my life and told myself, “ITS TIME TO CRUSH 2017!” I have basically still been on my 2016 mindset, which, isn’t or has not been bad. But, I know its time to go higher and I can’t do that until I made up my mind to get started right?!

I decided to get a little personal on the blog today and share “Five Things About Myself to Improve in 2017.” Now, I do know that I am quite a fabulous person lol, however, your girl could use some work! Its nothing like evaluating yourself and saying, “Girl, do better!” We all have flaws that we need to improve about ourselves. When you recognize those flaws and don’t take the steps to make positive changes, then what are you really doing? I cannot be the “GIRL BOSS” I dream to be if I am not applying myself and doing “GIRL BOSS” things, am I right??

So I am going to let you in on a few things that I know I need to work on about myself for 2017! I like to be transparent with my followers so you guys can get a sense of who I am.  I am a wife, mom, blogger and everything else I need to be to others. Life can get a bit crazy, so its time to buckle down and get to work! Here are my five things that I plan to hold myself accountable for in 2017. Let’s go!

Five Things About Myself to Improve in 2017

 

  1. Procrastination: Your girl GOT IT BAD!! In fact, there are a lot of opportunities that I see out there for myself that I pass on because I know my procrastination game is real!! I am easy to push things off until later. Honestly, I don’t even know why I allow myself to do that knowing that I have a 2-year-old toddler. I am always tired by the end of the day and when the couch calls my name, I answer! In 2017, I cannot allow procrastination to hold me back from the things that can allow myself to be great and create the brand I dream of.                                                                   Solution: Create a weekly task list to complete by Sunday. This will allow me time to schedule and plan my week and allow for changes instead of stressing myself to get it done daily.
  2. Healthy Eating: Y’all, since the holidays I have been eating any and everything. My trouble zone is my stomach area and I am not liking what I am seeing. I get bloated very easily to the point I look three to four months preggo. Last summer, my family and I did a weight loss challenge and I actually did really well! I noticed that I wasn’t bloated as usual and that I had more energy. Personally, I learned that I need to cut back on bread and sugar which was the culprit of my bloating. Another problem is, I don’t like working out! I can go strong for about a month or two and then I don’t want to do it anymore. I never really enjoy it.                                                                          Solution: Starting today get back on my healthy eating! No breads or sugar and increase my water intake. Find a workout that I enjoy and commit to attending or completing starting at twice a week.
  3. Spending: Lord, hold my mule! This should really be number one, but whatever. I really need to get better at saving, budgeting and reduce impulse buying. You all know that I LOVE to shop! I am great at finding affordable fashion and look for less deals. Problem is, even though an item may be a great deal, I am purchasing other stuff that’s a great deal too and it all adds up. With blogging, some of my outfits are sponsored, meaning, provided by the brand. But, for the most part its all me swiping that card honey. Not to mention making sure Camille is fly and cute and household expenses as well. I am getting close to 40 y’all, its time to start thinking long-term and retirement! Wow, I’m real grown lol.                                                                                                                                                          Solution: Create a monthly spending budget that allows me to shop, but reduce the amount that I am spending. Also, to use cash for purchases that are not online. Maybe I can actually leave Target without spending hundreds perhaps? #goals
  4. Housekeeping: My house is unorganized y’all and I am not the best housekeeper. It’s really unorganized and the walls are closing in with all of Camille’s toys. We are hoping to move in the next few years since we also want to expand our family with one more little one. So, I have to do better at maintaining my household and reducing the clutter. It really irritates me to come home to the clutter and mess. I can’t take it anymore!                                  Solution: Eliminate furniture that is not regularly used and get more functional storage options. Reduce the clutter by selling or donating to Goodwill or Salvation Army. Also, create a schedule to do a “deep cleaning” once or twice a month and then maintain for the other two weeks.
  5. Blogging/ Business: I want to start my own business in relation to my blog. But, I am not set on exactly what product I want to sell or market. I initially thought t-shirts, but I don’t know if that’s something I am completely sold on. I really don’t want to spend time on something that I am not 100% about. But, I know that in order to turn my blog into a brand, I really need to focus on a product to grow my audience and financially. Solution: Prayer and research! I don’t want to do anything without confirmation from God that this is the right path. But, faith without works is dead. So I need to research to ensure what I really want to do and if its beneficial to this time period or season in my life.

Whew! Ok, those five things I must focus on this year. I really need to make sure I am not deterred and stay focus on accomplishing these goals.

I would love to know what are some things you feel you can improve upon personally and what solutions or tactics you have in place to get it done!!

So please share and let’s make 2017 AMAZING!

I am loving a good pleated midi skirt! Its one of my favorite fashion trends for 2016. I’ve been eyeing this pleated midi skirt from ASOS for a long time. So I finally decided to just hit the button and buy it! Its a gorgeous, subdued gold color that can be worn with just about anything in my closet. When I shop “trendy” pieces, I like to make sure they are pieces I can still rock after its no longer “in style.” How can this pleated midi skirt ever go out of style though, right?

 

I hope you had a very, Merry Christmas! Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love going all out to celebrate it. We did so many fun things this holiday season as a family which made it even better. Having a child who is old enough to get excited about the festivities of the holidays just made it 100 times better. We took Camille to so many Christmas events and she had a blast. I am sad that the build up and anticipation of Christmas is now over because honestly, thats the best part!

 

Well loves, the next time you will hear from me will be in 2017!!! I cannot even believe that 2016 is coming to a close. I have so many things I need to accomplish and goals that I must meet in 2017. This blog life has to go further, you hear me? So be on the look out for more diverse blog posts, great giveaways for my loyal readers and more!

 

Please have a SAFE, BLESSED and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR my loves!!

So basically New Year Eve is like, around the corner if you can believe it or not! We don’t have any plans to go anywhere, but that didn’t stop me looking for a New Year’s Eve outfit and getting this GORGEOUS velvet dress for $35!! Uh huh, you read right girl! Thats why I IMMEDIATELY bought this sucker. I was a little nervous about the fit because of the low cut and the slits. Plus, I’ve been eating sweets like there is no tomorrow. Spanx on deck! Lol. But, anyways honey this dress slid on my body so good! I felt like those bottles of shimmer lotion where you shake it up and a bunch of sparkly glitter slowly slides down the bottle! If you don’t understand what I am saying, just roll with me boo. I basically felt luxurious honey and I love that feeling!

 

I was happy that I received a few pieces from Sherrod Sisters Jewelry to finish this look. I wanted very simple, gold pieces to match this dress. So the pave ear jacket and the gold double bar cuff was the perfect combination! I have been wanting to try ear jacket’s too. I am always in hoops, they are my “go-to” earring but, these pave ear jackets are the perfect touch for any New Year’s Eve outfit or parties! I also liked the simple gold cuff too. Sometimes you just want simple pieces so that everything stands out on its own. You get what I’m saying?!

 

Oh, Sherrod Sisters Jewelry is kind enough to offer a discount code thats only good until Friday!!! So hurry up and check them out! Coupon code is “HOHOHO20.” CLICK HERE to head to their site and have some fun shopping!

 

I hope this look inspired some of you who have plans for NYE. We will probably stay at home with Camille and countdown with glasses of champagne. Better yet, maybe I’ll slip this dress on and act like I’m going somewhere! Anything to put this baby on one more time!!

 

Have a blessed and safe Christmas my loves!

See you soon for my next post!

Are the days where we send out Christmas cards to our friends and loved ones no more?  Times have changed and receiving a card or a letter in the mail is so rare! I am so guilty of failing at this each year. But, this year I was determined to send out Christmas cards! It is so important to me to bring back this tradition to my home. This tradition brings back fond memories of my mom and I. That which I am grateful for! I remember each year helping my mom pick out Christmas cards. We would pull out her address book, sit down at the kitchen table, sign the cards and address the envelopes. When we would receive our cards in the mail, I would line them up on our fireplace mantel or tape them in the arch way of our living room. Giving and receiving Christmas cards just made me feel connected with everyone who shared in wishing each other well during this special time. Also, it served as a constant reminder of the reason for Christmas. Jesus is the Reason for the Season indeed!

 

Well, this year I got it together, booked our family photos and now our Christmas cards are done thanks to Tiny Prints! I knew I wanted personalized Christmas cards, but man I got way more than just that! Not only can you select from tons of different Christmas or Holiday card designs, but you can take an extra step with personalizing it by selecting the message in the card, choosing a liner for the envelopes (I used a picture featuring Camille of course), and select different styles and colors of envelopes too. Not only that, you can input all of your loved ones addresses into Tiny Prints and they will print out the address on the envelopes for you. As well as printing yours for the return address!!! For the FREE! All I had to do is seal the envelopes and put a stamp on it. Beyond easy! You can even have them print your cards and mail them out for you (this requires a few weeks). Tiny Prints is doing the absolute most and I am here for it!

 

I realize Christmas is in a matter of days. But, you still have time to receive your cards by December 23rd if you order your cards TODAY!! Or you can also send out cards for “New Year” if you think its too late to try for sending Christmas. Tiny Prints also offer birth announcements, invitations and other types of stationary too! But, I know you really want to know is if there is a coupon code. Yes, there is! CLICK HERE for their latest promo codes and offers!

 

Well, thats one thing off my list of things to do. Maybe now I should start buying gifts! Better late than never 🙂

 

See you Sunday for the next post!
