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 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!

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!

I’ am over summer! Over it! But, my off shoulder dresses?? I’m here for it!

Why is it still super HOT in Dallas? Today with the humidity it was 104. 104 folks! In the words of one my favorite comedians, Tyree Elaine, “I just wanna walk in my purpose”…. and wear my fall clothes! I am ready for my leather leggings, leather jackets and down vest, over the knee boots and deep wine colored lipsticks and vampy nails. Sorry, I just had a moment lol. Fall fashion is my jam! Its what my closet is all about. But, even though I am hoping, wishing and praying for cooler days, the off shoulder trend is still going strong. I cant wait to start rocking a few knitted off shoulder dresses with knee boots and a floppy hat. Fall vibes, I am feeling them. Are you?!

 

So since we still have some hot days in Dallas, its not out of the norm for me to wear this summer style off shoulder dress from SheIn. If you are still experiencing some heat where you live, then this dress may be for you. Its super comfy and easy to throw on. Now, it is very see thru, so a slip or thong may be something to consider. But, even so this cutie is definitely one to wear before the cool weather is upon us.

 

Are you ready for fall weather where you are? If you already experiencing fall where you are, I AM JEALOUS!

 

See you soon for another post!!

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?

Hello There!!

“What to Wear to Work On Monday” Part 2 is here!! This series is a work in progress for me because I struggle every morning wondering what to wear to work. I’ve fell off in that area and need to get it together. I really need to start focusing more on work appropriate pieces so stay tuned for more. This series will not only be helpful for you, but for me too! Yes, I am back again in these stunning culottes from Ann Taylor!! I wore them on the blog a while ago in navy and I am wearing the stripe pair here (now 40% off). They are simply amazing and I love the flare and structure on these pants. These are perfect for a business casual office environment. I added my trusty denim shirt and tan sandals and called it a day!!

 

This week has been really long for me as I am starting a new work schedule and new process at my job. My days are a bit longer and I am in traffic coming and going home. It is definitely an adjustment for me because my time at home with Camille is already limited before she heads off to bed. Being a working mom is hard! I feel that I don’t get enough time with my little one and they grow so fast! I often look at her and I swear she grew from the day before. There’s simply not enough hours in the day. I wish I was a millionaire,  then I would not have these #adulting work place/home life struggles. LOL.

 

Enough venting:) I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

A “Date Night” outfit is always a must-have around these parts! My husband and I don’t get many date nights since having Camille. But, when we do, I always have a good date night outfit on hand so I can slay lol. We decided to up our game on date nights this summer and have one coming up soon. This casual, but dressed up outfit is PERFECT for date night if you ask me! Especially, this gorgeous top from SheIn! Its EVER-YTHING!!! As soon as I tried it on, I got super excited because it’s so stylish, unique and comfortable!!  When I think of what to wear on date nights, my go to is a cute, flirty top, jeans and heels. So putting this ensemble together was easy!! The ripped jeans, statement clutch and bold red lips makes me feel sexy and ready to hit the streets with my boo!!

 

Oh and this lemonade that you see in all of my pictures was so necessary! LOL. It had to be 100 degrees out when we were shooting in Downtown, Mckinney, Texas. It was scorching hot!! So when I saw a frozen lemonade sign, I ran in and IMMEDIATELY asked for the largest one they had!!  It was absolutely delicious and made the shoot a lot cooler. I absolutely refused to put it down while taking these pics lol. The struggle is so real with these blog shoots people! I may write a post on what to pack for a blog shoot if any of you future bloggers out there are interested! Let me know!

 

See you soon for my next post!!

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.

A floral off shoulder top, say what? Yes, loves! This one is a keeper in my book. Even in high, sweltering 90 degree heat, the swing and movement of this light weight piece kept me easy breezy! I purchased this beauty from ILY Couture during their Memorial Day sale. ILY Couture had my heart a few years ago when I saw this gorgeous sweatshirt on Instagram and I had to have it! They always have stylish, but wearable pieces that you can wear years from now and still look in style. Don’t you love when that happens? This floral off shoulder top mixed with the fringe sandals and leopard clutch makes me smile. Mixing different prints and textures, such as the fringe in these gorgeous shoes,  adds unexpected details to your outfit that simply works!

 

I loved this floral off shoulder number so much, I also purchased it in the blush pink version too! I cant wait to pair it with a simple white pencil skirt or white jeans. Its going to make such a simple, but sophisticated look. Which I am all about by the way! Or you can pair it with gray tones as well to add a bit of luxe to your look!

 

How would you wear this flirty piece?
