ZARA BELL SLEEVE TOP, HOW TO WEAR BELL SLEEVE TOP, BRUNCH ATTIRE

 

Hey Loves!

 

Don’t you just adore the sleeve on this top? Bell sleeves are definitely another 2016 trend! Its a cute, flirty but dramatic look that I love so much. I will  definitely wear this top with shorts, skirts and of course my favorite: boyfriend jeans! I also pulled out one my favorite bags! My dad bought this for me as my graduation present for college a few years ago. So its near and dear to my heart. Anyways, its no longer available, but I linked a few similar cross body bags I am sure you will love!

 

I am sorry I have been a little quiet lately. I’ve been a little busy! Not only do I work full time job, have a toddler, am a wife and fashion blogger, but I also decided to start working out too. LOL. There are NOT enough hours in the day people! All I want to do after I work out or cook dinner is lay in the bed and watch tv! My husband side of the family and I have all started a weight loss challenge this past week. For six weeks we are to get our lives together and lose some weight!!  So we must work out at least 3 times a week- texting proof of our workouts and of course shed some pounds!! At the end, whoever loses the most weight and maintains their workouts will win some cash! Mama needs a new purse! So I am not playing any games, ok!

 

I know you’re thinking, girl please you don’t need to lose anything! Oh yes I do friends, this stomach fat is no joke! I don’t know where it came from, but I want it to get thee behind me Satan (Martin anyone?) lol. If you want to follow my journey to getting fit, follow me on Snapchat (ALWAYZFASHLATE)!! My focus: no caffeine, sweets, cut down on meat, eat more fruits and veggies and drink lots of water! I’ve lost 2.5 pounds so far and one inch off the waist. My goal is to lose 5 pounds which I think will help with the tummy section. If I can get this stomach back flat, I will be one happy lady!

 

Do you have any tips or work out routines that has helped with the tummy area? Please share!

Hi There!

 

I’m letting you know now there will be lots and lots of off shoulder pieces on the blog! I am super obsessed with this trend and rightly so! I love how it’s a little flirty, but yet an understated look that can translate from day to night.

Hey Loves!

If you are following me on Instagram (you are following me, right?), you know that I was on vacation to San Francisco a few weeks ago. My family and I went to San Francisco to visit my brother in law and his girlfriend. It was my first time in Cali as an adult (going at 5 years old doesn’t count, right?). We had so much fun exploring the city!

Hey loves!

I’m back at it with another off shoulder piece! This time its the off shoulder denim dress thats receiving my love and affection. I’ve been scouring the internet looking for an off shoulder denim dress and could not find one that I loved. I purchased one at Express, but I wasn’t completely feeling it. So, I decided to check out Zara and they did NOT disappoint me! As soon as I slipped it on, it was love at first sight! The small details in this dress is what makes it so unique and stylish. A few reasons why I fell in love with this dress.. Number one: pockets! Hello–shouldn’t every dress have pockets? I think so! Number 2: it has a short sleeve which allows it to lay nicely when wearing it off OR on your shoulders. Number 3: You can also wear it on the shoulder (which is how I am wearing it), which leads back to point number 2. Its nothing like getting two different looks from one piece!  Lastly, number 4: its super lightweight and comfortable, perfect for spring/ summer weather!

Do you know about My Other Bag? Its an amazing shop that carries recycled, designer inspired tote bags! I stumbled across My Other Bag on Instagram and fell in love with this style called “London- Kiss.” The bags are so cute and multi functional. I can’t wait to use them for travel, shopping and maybe the gym… whenever that will be. I gotta do better 🙂

Guess what, I have another GIVEAWAY for you!! I am so excited to host another giveaway for my amazing readers (that means YOU)! Simply complete the entry form below for all of your chances to win.

Hi again! So you want to know how to wear bright colors for spring?  You’ve come to the right place! Now, I’m not the girl that wear super bright colors from head to toe.  I admire those girls who can do that, but its just not my thing. However, I surely love pops of color to bring a colorful vibe to my wardrobe. Its the safe route, but I’m here for it! I think this outfit is a great example on how a sprinkle of color can definitely be a game changer to an otherwise plain outfit. My bold, blue plaid shirt and the vibrant orange of these GORGEOUS mules are pretty much everything! Its just enough color to balance out the crisp white pants too. So here are a few simple tips on how to wear bright colors for spring. Are you ready? Let’s go!

  1. Don’t overthink it: Wearing bright colors can be a little overwhelming for someone who isn’t use to it. So don’t overthink it. Do it to your comfort level so that you can rock your bright colors in confidence!
  2. Check out the color wheel: The color wheel is GREAT tool when you are trying to determine what colors would look great with what. I often times pull it up so that I can get inspired of new color combinations. Its the perfect guide to have on hand when you are uncertain of what can work. I like this one because it gives a variation of shades for each color. USE IT!
  3. Start with shoes and purse: Again, if you are not into all over color, your shoes and handbag is a perfect place to use it! In this outfit, you can see the orange is my pop of color and it works. Your eyes aren’t going all over the place taking in the colors.  Shades like orange, pinks, teals and greens are perfect for a “pop” of color!
  4. Accessorize: There are some gorgeous, bright “spring” accessories out there. I absolutely love using accessories to include color. I’ve made it easy for you and linked some beautiful options for you below. Speaking of , I’m OBSESSED with these!
  5. Makeup and Nail Polish: You probably didn’t consider letting your eyes, lips and nails doing the talking on wearing bright colors. But, you should! I would suggest not going super crazy in this area. But, hey, do you girl! A bold lip, bright eyeliner or colorful mani in pinks, oranges, purples and teals always look amazing and so vibrant for spring. I can’t wait to pull out some teal gel eyeliner and I already have my white mani and pedi (another cute option) right now.

I hope you enjoyed these tips on how to wear bright colors for spring! Are you a fan of bright colors? How do you incorporate it into your wardrobe or look? I’d love to know!

I absolutely love an off the shoulder sweater! But, it doesn’t end there. From off the shoulder tops to dresses, I can’t get enough! Its something about being sexy, but yet understated in letting a little shoulder peep through. With spring finally here, I wanted to get the most wear out of this off the shoulder sweater before it heats up. I simply paired it with my favorite, most comfortable white stretch pants and fringe booties. I am excited to get more wear out of my white pants too. Its like the perfect sign that spring is here! I think this is definitely one of my most favorite looks on the blog. The soft pale tones and my favorite pink lipstick..It’s just something about this look that I just love!

Oh, yes, how do you like my new and improved website?! After a year of blogging, it was time for a fresh new look! I’ve finally moved to an actual website and to WordPress which provides better functionality for myself and my readers. I hope you enjoy the look of the new site. Be sure to tell me what you think!!

I also think this is one of my favorite blog shoots. I fully allowed myself to be silly and have fun with the shoot. And it showed! Its something about doing what you love that shines through. Blogging is not always easy, but when I get my images back from my shoots, I am reminded why I love it so much. Seeing the effort you put into something translate into a photo is really rewarding. I can’t wait to show a fun shoot with you guys I have coming up for my one year Blogiversary.

Are you doing what you love? How do you feel rewarded in your efforts? I’d love to know!!

 

See you Sunday for my next post!

Hello loves! There is always something quite whimsical and dreamy about wearing tulle. This tulle skirt is no exception! I wore this skirt on the blog quite a while ago (click here) during the hot, Texas summer. Well, let me tell you, it is still perfection for this breezy, cool weather. Its even dreamier as the wind catches the tulle and it creates a little bit of movement! My favorite photo from this shoot is the one above. Gorgeous right?! I keep swooning at it. Also, if you’ve been following me for a while, you guys should know by now that I am crazy about leather! I can’t get enough of it. It’s a consistent go to piece in my wardrobe.I recently purchased this gem of a leather jacket the other week. Its no surprise that I have been wearing it constantly. So I had to put my spin on wearing a tulle skirt by edging it up with this textured, leather jacket. I think the whole look is quite perfect for date night, church or any event.
How do you feel about tulle skirts? Do you like them or nah?!

Hello again! Don’t you love stylish, affordable pieces that looks like you paid so much more (raises hand)?? Well, I sure do! I stumbled across this gem of a jacket a month or so ago. A lightweight, BLUSH PINK leather jacket for under $100?! That is a huge steal!! As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. As you can see, I’ve worn it in a previous look on my blog and its perfect for layering. This jacket is very lightweight. So it won’t keep you very warm when there is a brisk chill in the air. It is, however, amazing for the spring! You could wear it with boyfriend jeans, skirts or floral dresses. It creates the perfect finishing piece to whatever outfit you desire. Here, I donned it with a leather pencil skirt and heels for a more dressy occasion.

What have been your style steals so far for spring??
