Happy Friday eve!!

I don’t know about you but the kimono trend is here and I am feeling it. Kimonos can sometimes be a bit tricky to pull off. They can be too long and drag to the floor, too big to where you feel like you’re wearing a bath robe or even the fabric can be too flimsy or silky. Basically, you have to find one that works for you in terms of fit, use of wear and how you plan to rock it!

 

It was Zara (one of my fav places to shop) who had some super cute kimonos this season and I fell in love. I wanted them all! Fortunately, the Zara sale came thru and your girl got two to cure my craving. I particularly love how this kimono has buttons so it draws you in a bit and creates a shape. This eliminates the problem of feeling like you’re drowning in fabric. I wore it to brunch with a fellow blogger this past weekend. So of course we took to the streets and took some pics afterwards. I got soon many compliments and it made me think to round up some kimonos for you to try as well!

But, before we get into that, lets discuss a few things to look for when buying a kimono and styling it.

 

First, fit is everything! Kimonos typically come with a belt which is helpful to cinch you in and create a shape. But, if the belt is a bit too thin or give you bath robe vibes, consider wearing a wider belt with your kimono instead. Sometimes just because a belt comes with an item, doesn’t mean you should wear it. Switching out the belt gives you an opportunity to give the kimono some extra flair. Not to mention, make it your own unique piece!

 

Second, wear fitted clothes underneath the kimono such as a dress, skinny jeans or pants, pencil skirt or shorts like I am wearing here. For me, I don’t feel I would look good with loose clothes under an already flowy kimono. As you see in the pic, I chose to wear a cami and shorts which are more fitted to my body versus being baggy. I have seen some style the kimono with loose fitted pants and it looks amazing on them. But, I’m 5’3 so I want at least one piece to be fitted to my body so that I am now drowning in material.

 

Thirdly, determine what length is best for you. Kimonos come in various lengths which I love. That means if you are on the shorter side, maybe a kimono that hits at the thigh is best for you. You can also go midi length with the kimono which would be a great layering piece with a fitted dress. Ankle length kimonos also look great with pants or skinny jeans. The one I am wearing is a bit in between midi and ankle. So it worked perfectly styling it with shorts.

I hope these tips were a bit helpful in finding the perfect kimono. I’ve linked 21 for you to shop all under $50!! I already have a few of these on my wish list!

 

Which one is your favorite? Are you here for the kimono trend or nah??

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!

Friday is upon us loves! I think every person in the world loves Friday. Its when the work week comes to an end and the promise of relaxation, sleeping in, happy hours and brunches are on the horizon. Its also the day when most companies allow for that most wonderful day called Casual Friday. Let me tell you, the struggle to put on office appropriate clothes was a difficult one for me. I would grab whatever had the least wrinkles and wore it with pride. I’m a girl who loves her jeans so for me, Casual Friday’s is where its at!

 

Today’s look is perfect for Casual Friday. The flare sleeve blouse works so well with the flare jeans! When I saw this blouse, I immediately had to have it. The ruffles, stripes and the ties on the sleeves all plays so well together. Its blouses like these you are happy to have in your closet. It pairs well with jeans, skirts, pants, culottes. Its just a perfect piece. Not to mention, this flare sleeve blouse is ONLY $23!! Girllll, yall know I love affordable fashion. We ball on a budget over here. This is a steal too good to miss. So get you one soon!

 

What do you have up for the weekend? Me? I’ll probably put off cleaning and find something fun to do 🙂

 

See you Sunday for my 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!!

Scoliosis. A word I have dealt with since the age of 12. I hated that word, HATED it! Hated to say it, hated to see it, hated to deal with it!! Scoliosis is defined as “a lateral curvature of the spine.” Basically, your spine is not 100% straight. You may have an upper curvature or a lower curvature. For me, it was upper and my curvature was over 50 “degrees,” as they call it. Essentially, I have a hump on the right side of my shoulder, which caused one shoulder to be higher than the other. You could also tell by how I walked, as it looked like I was leading with the right side of my body. I wasn’t bent over like a hobbit or anything, but you could definitely notice. Talk about not starting off so good with self-confidence as a pre-teen! Not great!

 

I’ll never forget the day. My mother was getting on me for a while about not standing up straight when I walked and stand. As a 12 year old, this was the least of my concerns. One day we were in the basement and my mom told me to come here. She turned me around and looked down the back of my shirt and said, “Oh my God.” I didn’t understand what was happening, what did she see? “Nikki, (my nickname) you have a big hump on the right side of your shoulder.” What was she talking about? My mom immediately called my pediatrician and booked an appointment for me to come in. We saw my doctor that week. He leaned me over and measured my spine. Thats when he said the word, “Scoliosis.” I was scared, I didn’t know what it meant and if it was something very bad.

 

He referred me to many doctors: Orthopedic surgeons, Scoliosis specialists and any other doctor necessary. They all confirmed his diagnosis. Again, my curve was over 50 degrees. Quite noticeable! Imagine a scale being at “0.” Now think of that scale tipping 50 degrees to the right. Quite a significant difference don’t you think?? My mom and I asked, where did this come from? Its no real answer, its a bit common actually. Some people develop a curvature and some don’t. So how do you treat it? I had to wear a HARD, UNCOMFORTABLE, HOT, plastic brace that went from under my breast to right below my hips. It made me walk straighter, but very stiff. It was so hard to even breathe in that thing. The brace prevents the curve from going further but thats about it. To fix this issue, I would have to have spinal surgery.

 

See that long scar down my back in this picture? That is my “battle scar” as my husband calls it. I stopped wearing the brace not long after I got it because it was so uncomfortable and I hated it. I resolved someday to get the surgery and call it a day.  Fast forward to college, I was coming to the age (21) where I would no longer be covered under my parents insurance. So my parents and I discussed getting the surgery before that happened. We saw many doctors and they reviewed with me what to expect, potential outcomes and I even watched a little video describing the surgery. Whats funny is that my surgeon was a Children’s Orthopedic Surgeon. So there I was, my grown self in the waiting room with kids running around. LOL. But, it had to happen. I couldn’t go on with this ugly curve!

The day of my surgery was very scary. We went to the hospital at 5am for pre op fun! I say that with so much sarcasm. I was scared. Scared, scared, scared! My back was basically going to be cut open and my spine held in place by rods and screws. I was so nervous that I cried and sat shaking in the hospital bed. My parents prayed over me. Thank God for praying parents!! They administered meds to knock me out for this 8 HOUR SURGERY!! Yes, 8 HOURS!! Can you understand why I was basically terrified?? Could you imagine the fear my parents had about what could potentially go wrong?? As a parent now, I cant imagine! They were so strong for me and showed no fear. God bless them!!

 

I’ll never forget feeling woozy as the meds kicked in. I kissed my parents and they wheeled me down the hall. My eyes closed and I was out of there. I woke up to the sound of my name and laying on my stomach. It took me a moment to realize where I was and what happened. Then the pain HIT ME!! There are no words to describe it. NONE AT ALL!! I screamed! There was so much pressure on my back and felt like I couldn’t breathe. I wanted my mom. I screamed for her. When she came in the room I felt better having her there. But, the pain was unbearable. I asked them to turn me over to my back. I felt like that would help. They did and it didn’t help at all! Thats all I really remember.

 

I was at the Children’s Hospital of Detroit for a week. They were AMAZING!! They took such good care of me and the food was DELISH!! Lol. My parents took shifts staying with me. One during the night, one during the day. What amazing parents! My church family came to visit me as well. I felt so loved and taken care of. Each day it got better, seriously! I had pain, but SO much better than the day of surgery. I was restricted to being home for a month along with no heavy lifting or excessive movement. Although my mom and I did make a trip to the mall. LOL. I saw my doctor a few times to make sure my back was healing properly. Things got better!

 

From what I recall, I went from an over 50 degree curvature to just under 20 degree!! A HUGE difference. You can still see the side of my shoulder that has a very slight hump. I’m ok with it!! This surgery changed my life!! My self confidence about what I wore and how I felt went through the roof. So even with my “battle scar,” I have no problem showing it. None AT ALL!! Its a small price to pay for something that was such a huge part of my life. That part of my back is still a bit numb from the surgery, even over 10 years later. Sometimes it feels a bit stiff, so I get massages to help with that. And who doesn’t like massages?!

 

Would I do the surgery again? YES, ABSOLUTELY!! The pain was a very small price to pay to not have that curvature anymore. Scoliosis impacted my life at a young age. Scoliosis is a very serious condition and shouldn’t be taken lightly. There is no cure for it either. As a parent, I will be checking Camille early to ensure she doesn’t have it too. I encourage any of you that may have Scoliosis or children who may have it, to see your doctor and discuss the best options. Surgery was the best option for me and I have no regrets!!

 

Sorry for this LONG post, but I felt it important to share my story. I cried typing this up. I thought of the day my mom saw the curve, the trips to see multiple doctors and the day of my surgery. But, it made me reflect and be SO thankful or my amazing parents. They were my strength during this time!! Oh, I cant forget to mention that my then “friend,” now husband, was on the phone with my parents while I was in surgery. Checking in for updates and making sure I was ok. LOL I guess I found out how much my “friend” cared, which was pretty amazing too!

 

Do you have scoliosis or know someone that does? I’d love to hear your story. If you have ANY questions, please comment below or email me. I have no problem sharing as you can see!

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!

Hey lovelies! I have another color combination for you today. Camel and gray looks so good together don’t you agree? Its nothing like a great pair of camel boots and off the shoulder sweater to build a casual but sophisticated look. You guys see me wear these gray jeans ALL the time. Unfortunately, they are no longer sold. I hate that because they are my absolute favorite pair of jeans. I did link a few similar for you below, I hope that helps. The sweater can also be worn as a dress, but I prefer it as a sweater. It’s surprisingly warm considering we shot this look in 30 degree weather… Brrr!!
If you follow me on Instagram, you would know my birthday was on Friday!! I am celebrating 34 years of life on this earth and I am so blessed. Honestly, it feels like the older you get, your birthday becomes “just another day.” But, I don’t take it for granted! As my mom would say, I thank God for life, health and strength! And its so true!! Count your blessings!!
Have you worn any of the color combo’s I posted lately? If so, please tag me on Insta or comment below so I can check you out!! I’d love to see it. See you soon!!

Wearing white in the winter time is considered a faux pas to some. I use to be one of those people who would never wear white in the winter. I can be old school in some ways, but not anymore when it comes to fashion! I’ve learned through my Pinterest and Instagram addiction that white can easily be worn during the colder months. So I scoped out my closet to see what look I could come up with and I think I did pretty well, don’t you agree? This beautiful coat and taupe accents worked well together with the contrast of the white pants. My gorgeous, leather driving gloves were a Christmas gift from my Mother – in – law. To say she did a fabulous job is an understatement!! She also gifted me this shawl coat a few Christmas’s ago and I love it so much. Olivia Pope anyone?
Do you wear white after Labor Day? How do you like to wear it in colder months?
Chat with you Sunday in my next outfit post!!

Merry Christmas Eve!! Today’s look is another New York Street Style shot from my weekend stay in New York! It was so hard for me to pack for this trip because I had to consider the weather, outfits for my blog shoot ,as well as what I would wear there day and night. I had to be very smart about what I was packing so that I could wear my blog shoot outfits while I was there. Thats why I love this look so much. It’s easy, simple and can go day to night. I wore this to see The Lion King on Broadway (AH-MAZING by the way)! These Tory Burch Over the Knee boots made it so easy for walking the streets of New York while keeping warm and comfy. The poncho cape is an Ann Taylor find from last year and is super warm, which was perfect for night time! If I could share a piece of my wardrobe to my readers it would be the cape for sure! The cross body bag I wore in my last post was so functional and perfect for traveling as well. It’s definitely the cutest little bag out there right now.
I wish you all a fabulous and safe Christmas! I wish you and your family all the blessings in the world!!

Hi There! I call this look: EASY!!! A weather appropriate jacket, tailored shirt, ripped jeans and a nice boot and you’re done. The bag is an oldie, but definite goodie. Its from Target’s collaboration with Philip Lim from a few years ago. If you missed this collaboration, I’m definitely sorry for you. I came out of it with this bag, the last one in the store I found at 12 noon! A pure shopping miracle I tell you!!
The last few days my dad was in town for his birthday. He mainly came to visit my little girl, Camille lol. It was such a great time with him here. Camille was 9 months since he last saw her and she’s grown so much. They had the best time hanging out together. We visited our local pumpkin patch, went shopping and just enjoyed each others company. My mom passed away five years ago, so any moment I can spend with my dad is priceless. He returned back home today and we miss him dearly.
Tell me, how did you spend your weekend? Are you ready for the holidays? I’m a Christmas fanatic so I can’t wait to get in the full holiday spirit!!
See you Sunday for my next post!!
