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!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend. My weekend was spent cleaning the house and attending an Alvin Ailey Dance Company performance. Which by the way was simply amazing!! Such a great opportunity for some culture and to get dressed up. Speaking of which, I dont always get the opportunity to put on a pretty dress and hit the town. Especially as a mommy, the days of getting dressed up sometimes feel few and far in between.

So, what is my mommy style?

I wanted to discuss mommy style today on the blog. I learned quickly when Camille came home from the hospital, that getting time to take care of myself would be rare. If I wanted to take care of me, it would require effort on my part to not let go of what made me feel good as a woman. After all, who wants to lose their mojo?

 

Those of you who are moms understand the typical “mom uniform” of yoga pants or sweats can get pretty boring. And dare I say, not always stylish?!

 

I find it important to look for comfortable pieces that also has style and allows you to look well put together. For me, some days that is boyfriend jeans and a tee or most recently, this combination I am wearing here. Printed leggings and this super soft velvet/velour hoodie. Which is probably the most comfortable and simple outfit in my closet!

 

You guys, I have worn this outfit OUT! From dropping Camille off at daycare, meeting a friend for breakfast or hitting the grocery store, this outfit has kept me all the way together. Not to mention I usually end up petting this sweatshirt because its so darn soft and comfy. I definitely cannot exclude these polka dot mesh leggings. Seriously, how cute are they?!

 

I hope this outfit idea shows you that not even a fashion blogger is ALWAYS in heels or dry clean only pieces. There is a time and a place for everything. And most times, comfort does win. But, sacrificing style is never an option!

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!

This maxi dress right here?! This right here?! Yes, its my most favorite maxi dress this summer and possibly my most favorite ever.  I can sing its praises all day long. I love how it flows and flares out as I walk. Even the slightest turn and it spins beautifully around my legs. It also has a drawstring waist to cinch and accentuate curves. But, you know why I really love it right? Yes, the off shoulder detail gives me all of the feels! It takes this dress up a notch and I am here for it. Since I have gotten the dress, I have worn it countless times. I’ve worn it to run errands, shopping and dressed it up for a brunch event with lace up heels. I always receive SOOOOO many compliments when I wear this dress. You MUST BUY THIS DRESS! ASAP!

 

I am so excited because next week I am going on a girls trip for some much needed fun!! Its always good to have some fun with your friends and unwind. Its time to start packing and I am working on a quick post on what I like to pack in my carry on bag. I always like to get ideas of what people like to pack when traveling. So I hope to be able to do this for you and share  a few of my travel necessities. So stay tuned!

 

Oh, and GRAB THIS DRESS!

Its another installment of “What to Wear to Work On Monday featuring White House Black Market! This time I have a little something for my corporate world ladies who have a bit of a stricter dress code, but still like to slay. There is something you must know about me when it comes to fall wear. I LOVE leather! Leather on any and everything, I am all about it. This gorgeous dress by White House Black Market has the leather detailing that makes me happy. The v neck back, stripes and leather trim has all the makings of   a great “go-to” dress.  Although this dress is perfect piece for work, the low cut back with leather trim gives it a bit of personality and sass. Who doesn’t love that?

 

Thanks so much for your sweet comments regarding my last post on first YouTube video! If you haven’t checked it out, I gave a tutorial on how to wand curl your hair and achieve my favorite loose wave look! So please make sure you head to YouTube and SUBSCRIBE. I plan to post more videos for you soon. Tell me what you would like to see and I will do my best to get it done for you!

 

See you soon, Tanika!

Hey Loves!

A jumpsuit is something every girl should have in her closet. It’s so super simple to throw on! You can wear a jumpsuit with heels, flats, layered with jackets or blazers. So many possibilities and ways to extend your wardrobe. Not only that, but it just provides a sleek, chic look that every fashionista needs! I love this one from “Love Verity,” it has a linen feel to it and is super light weight and under $60!! I paired it with these bright, red fringe beauties that pulled the look together perfectly. You can even wear this to work as it provides an office appropriate vibe. Gotta love that right??!!

 

I hope you are having a fabulous Labor Day weekend. I plan to sit back and try to relax lol. We are, however, taking pictures for Camille’s Second Birthday this weekend. Yes, her birthday was a few weeks ago. But, when we tried to schedule the shoot we had to cancel due to the rain. Hey, better late than never right! I am looking forward to how they turn out. Camille has two super cute outfits that we are hoping she will allow us to take her pics in lol. But, the real problem is mommy has no clue as to what I am wearing! I was just at the mall today! Now why didn’t I think about that. I hope I can come up with something nice!

 

How are you celebrating Labor Day weekend?

More off shoulder goodness is on the blog! I hope you aren’t growing tired of it. This time I paired this plaid, off shoulder top with my favorite distressed boyfriend shorts! I love the casual vibe of this outfit and how its comfortable as well. Its nothing like an outfit that can go from shopping, brunch, movies, grocery store and everything else that”adulting” makes us do! I also am obsessed with my gold espadrille sandals. They are the perfect finishing touch to making this outfit “summer ready” Don’t you agree?

 

I am so ready for the weekend. Work has been a little nuts with changes soon on the way. Being a mommy to a toddler is becoming more work as she’s learning more and discovering how to take off her diaper when she goes to bed lol. Blogging seems to be taking off, but requires a lot of work!!! It makes me happy though, so I am so excited about the possibilities its opening up. Life is just becoming…. more! I went over the “schedule” with the husband tonight, as we must do with a child. Can you believe we have something scheduled EVERY weekend this month??? I am already tired just thinking about it. Pray for me!!

 

How do you balance craziness with family, work and life itself?? I’d love to hear!!

Hello again!

When my eyes spied these floral pants online at Zara, I knew I had to have them. I was a little leary of the bold, floral print. But, thought it could be a fun piece to add to my summer wardrobe. I’ve had these babies for about two months now and I wore them for the first time when we shot this look a few weeks back. I always adored floral print, but I would usually lean toward the smaller, less statement making print. Well, it was high time I tried something bold and fun! I am so happy I did. Once I pieced this look together, I loved the simple, casual vibe it exudes! Don’t you?

I wasn’t sure what top to wear with these floral pants. Until I walked into H&M and found the cutest, open back tee for only $5!! It was such a great deal, I grabbed it in white as well! Unfortunately, I cannot find the t-shirt online, but I did link similar tops!! Its a really cute, unexpected detail that adds a little excitement to a regular t-shirt. Head to your local H&M and see if you can score this tee too!!

How do you wear floral print? Does the floral pattern scare you a bit?  I’d love your thoughts on more ideas on how to style these pants.

What to wear to work on Monday is a question many of you ask on Sunday night, am I right?  I know tomorrow is July 4th, but you know what I mean! Lol. Many of you have asked me to incorporate some office ready looks on my blog. To tell you the truth, I literally just wake up and throw on clothes for work. Camille takes up most of my time in the morning, so I just do a quick ten minute face to “make up” for the tragedy of what I am wearing that day.  For a long time, I was seriously lacking inspiration on wear to work items when it came to my closet. But, when I came across these culottes from Ann Taylor?! Honey, all kinds of inspiration sparked! One being this totally wearable outfit for the office!

 

So here is the start to a new series on my blog called “What to Wear to Work on Monday!”  Once a month, I will feature office appropriate looks that are stylish and of course, affordable!! I know these culottes may not be acceptable in all workplace environments, but for those of you who work in a business casual office, these are totally doable! You can style these with a tie neck blouse come fall with a cute blazer, v neck sweaters layered over a white shirt, denim shirts or plain tees with dainty jewelry. I’ve linked some options for you below. The possibilities are endless! These culottes will also carry you into Happy Hour or dinner out after work. So grab these babies NOW!

 

See you Thursday for my next post!

Happy Thursday!

 

How do you like this off shoulder tunic? This blouse is from SheIn and is only $12!!!!  I know lots of you had questions on my last SheIn blog post (here) about ordering from their site. So I figure this would be more of a review post to give you peace of mind about the site and what you should expect. So lets hop to it!!

 

Thoughts on this top:

  1. Its long! Its tunic length, so it hit me mid thigh. I was expecting it to hit at the waist which would make it easier to throw on with anything like jeans, pencil skirt or maxi skirt.  So it makes it a bit awkward styling wise on choosing how to wear it. I just decided to tuck it in and keep it moving.
  2. Its lightweight material, but would still be hot during the summer. I wore this on a humid day and I was hot! The material is not cotton, so it doesn’t breathe very well. I would suggest wearing this on cool,breezy days so you’re not hot as heck 🙂 With 90 degree days hitting us in Texas, I may have to tuck this baby in the closet until cooler days.
  3. The sleeves are gathered so it has that elastic at the end. Some folks may not like that, I don’t really have a problem with it.
  4. Do I like it? Would I order it again?? Yes!!! I mean its only $12!! Again, its not a piece to wear in the dead heat of summer. Those of you who live in cooler climates would benefit the most out of this piece right now. But, come fall it will be getting a lot of wear!!

 

Thoughts on ordering from SheIn:

  1. I know everyone is a little skeptical with ordering from a company overseas. I don’t blame you with some of the horror stories and pics I’ve seen on Facebook of people ordering one thing and getting a hot mess.  I have not experienced that with SheIn! Everything I have received looks just like the picture! So no worries there!
  2. READ THE REVIEWS!!!- I cannot stress this enough. I encourage you to do so because thats what I do before  proceeding to order. The reviews give me peace of mind and also some feedback that I can apply to whether or not it will work for me. I haven’t ordered anything  that doesn’t have a review. With that being said, I have only returned 2 pieces so far due to the fit/ material or I just didn’t like it on me. I think this is typical when you order online, so its to be expected!
  3. It may take you a while to receive your items- It typically takes me a week or week and a half to receive my order. So plan accordingly!
  4. Pay close attention to the “Description” section- this will tell you what type of material the product is made of, if there is stretch and sizing info. This will be very helpful in determining how the product will hang or drape on you, the fabric type, what size to order etc. I always make sure to review the size chart before selecting. So make sure to do that. Also, I find most pieces from SheIn to have thin material. So check out the description box to determine what its made of. If you equate quality with heaviness of the fabric, you may not get that with SheIn.

 

I hope this honest review helps. I know so many of you had reservations on what to expect and was unsure if you should order. So this should put some of those fears to rest. If you have any questions, please comment below or even email me. I’ll be happy to give you my two cents!

 

See you Sunday for my next post!!
