I saw an image on Pinterest of a pair of snakeskin knee boots and I have been obsessed ever since. Snakeskin knee boots have been trending this past fall and have been on my radar for a minute. However, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend a lot of money on a snakeskin knee boot. I wondered if the print would be a little overwhelming on me and I wasn’t sure if I’d still be in love with it after the popularity died down. But, I finally found a pair of snakeskin knee boots under $70 and it sealed the deal for me. Aren’t these super cute?

This pair is by Pretty Little Thing, a UK brand that sells what is called “fast fashion” or trendy fashion items for an affordable price in my opinion. I selected the beige shade knee boot, but they also carry a pair in brown that is super cute as well. I shared these boots on my Instagram and was asked were they comfortable. My suggestion is to add a nice padded insole inside for some cushion and padding. But, otherwise the heel height works for me and the fit was spot on. So I would suggest this boot if you were interested in an affordable option knee boot.

I REALLY wanted this snakeskin pair by Schutz. But, I couldn’t justify the price right now so I had to pass. They are absolutely gorgeous though and I will keep my eye on them in case they go on major sale.

Do you like snakeskin boots?

Which version do you like? The “look for less” Pretty Little Thing boot or the Schutz pair?

Hey loves!

This Zara slip dress was simply love at first sight! The mustard, yellow shade is so rich and luxe that I had to buy it. Unfortunately, I no longer see it on Zara’s website. But, I did link some dupes for you! If I were you, I’d get this Zara slip dress ASAP if you find it in store. I’ve already seen it worn a lot on the internet, so you already know its a popular item. Zara also has some super cute slip dresses on their site. So check there as well for other colors or prints. But, let’s chat about how I styled this dress two ways shall we?

You can already see, this slip dress is such a versatile piece, even in this winter season. I’ve worn it under a cable knit cardigan and over a striped turtleneck. But, obviously you can wear it alone when it gets warmer or with a cute tee underneath. The possibilities are endless when styling this dress. I think my favorite way that I’ve worn it is pairing it with the turtleneck. Its unexpected and the black and white pops under the golden yellow! I do suggest wearing a slip underneath so that the turtleneck doesn’t show through as I did here. I also linked a striped bodysuit above, so that may help with keeping it nice and smooth under your dress as well.

Slip dresses are very much trending this year and I believe it will be here to stay, especially as we approach Spring and Summer. I’ve linked some other pretty ones that I currently have my eye on in soft pinks and turquoise. But, honestly don’t be surprised if you see me in this one again and again. Its just that good!

How do you feel about the slip dress trend? How would you style it?

Hey Loves!

Let’s talk denim shall we? I don’t know about you but jeans are kind of my staple for most of my day to day life. They transition so well from day to night, I have quite a few pairs in my closet. So if I am going to wear them often, they better fit great and look good too! I purchase most of my denim from Nordstrom Rack and when I see the brand, “KUT from the KLOTH,” there’s no surprise that I end up buying a pair. Because I am a fan of the brand, I already know that the fit will be great and the price point pretty reasonable so that’s why KUT from the KLOTH is one of my go to brands for denim!

In today’s look I am wearing KUT from the KLOTH “Diana” High Rise Relaxed fit Skinny” jeans and I love them! The jeans has a nice stretch to them and feels great on too. Oh, let me proudly announce that I’m now obsessed with high rise jeans! I mean look how good they look on my body? No gaps at the waist and no belt needed. Looks like I will definitely be purchasing more high rise denim from KUT in a few more rinses and colors for sure!

I hope you have an amazing week. Daylight Savings Time is hitting me hard already. I am not a fan of springing forward. I have two kids I have to get adjusted to being a hour ahead and we’re only two days in and its not been fun at all lol.

How have you adjusted to springing forward? Have you tried KUT from the KLOTH denim? I’m a fan and I am sure you will be one as well!

Hey Loves!

One thing I have learned since having Xavier is that I need more “mom on the go” pieces or AKA “yoga pants” in my life lol. I’m sorry, but most times jeans are the last thing I want to throw on these days. So I started purchasing yoga pants or workout leggings like a mad woman the past few months. They are much more comfortable and I can move around easily and freely in them too. I’m usually carrying around a car seat or lifting a stroller so leggings fit the bill when comfort is key.

Now just because I am wearing leggings on most days doesn’t mean I am sacrificing my style. This is where the term “athleisure” comes into play. Athleisure basically means “clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as at the workplace, at school, or at other casual or social occasions,” as defined by Wikipedia lol. I love to style my athleisure wear with cool layering pieces like a leather or denim jacket, super cute sneakers or slides and puffer vests. Yes, you can look stylish in chic in yoga pants people. Who knew?

Forever 21 has some amazing leggings that I fell in love with recently. In fact, the leggings you see here are Forever 21. Also, check out Marshall’s and TJ Maxx too!! I’ve scored some super cute yoga pants on clearance for about $12. And when I say they are comfortable, I mean it!

Are you into the athleisure wear trend? I am definitely here for it. In fact, being a mom on the go with a baby and toddler is opening my mind to expanding my wardrobe. I’ve even purchased more gym shoes or sneakers as some like to call it lately. Could I, lover of heels and a good flat, turn into a sneaker head? Stay tuned!

Hey Loves!

I hope all is well with you! I’ve been busy up to mom life and trying to survive lol. Also, to be honest with you I haven’t felt up to writing any blog posts lately. I have just not been inspired with any topics or things on my mind I would like to discuss. Its hard to write a blog post with nothing in mind. I hate to just talk about the outfit I’m wearing as a way to just have “something” up on my page. It just seems a bit boring and uninspired.

So, I need your help! Tell me a topic you would like for me to discuss or cover and I’ll be happy to oblige. This will help me to get some creative juices flowing and of course, have something to talk about. However, I have been posting lots of outfit looks on my Instagram, so please follow me there to see me more frequently. I look forward to your suggestions!

Hi Loves!

I have a new found love for satin slip dresses! Not only are they very feminine and smooth to the touch, they evoke a special touch to your outfit. I didnt know I even had a love for them until recent, when I started following Karen BritChick on Youtube. Karen is an amazing fashion blogger who pairs unique vintage finds with current trends in the most amazing way. I admire her unique style so much and she can do no wrong in my book. If you have not, please follow her NOW! She posted over the summer a beautiful satin slip dress and I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect one ever since.

So when I popped in Zara a while ago and saw this gorgeous yellow one, I picked it up and immediately purchased without trying it on lol. I knew it just had to work and boy was I right. I love the fit of this satin slip dress so much. Its cold as bricks here in Dallas for the past few months, so wearing this alone was not going to happen. Thats the beauty with slip dresses, you can pair them with blazers, leather jackets, sweaters or a cardigan like I did here. I love the juxtaposition of the fabrics and edging up the dress with the knit of the cardigan and the boots too. I’m giving just a little shoulder action by wearing the cardigan a little off the shoulders with one of my favorite belts as well.

So how do you feel about satin slip dresses? Will you give them a try or nah? I linked a few options in many colors for you to check out. Let me know if you pick one up!!

Hi Everyone!

Happy 2019!!

I cant believe how fast 2018 came and went. But, its a new year and I am thankful to see all that it has to offer. I have been posting my looks more so on Instagram than here on the blog. With the business of the holidays, I just didnt want to bother drafting a blog post. But, I am back!

I’m not going to write a post about my 2019 goals. This year, my husband and I decided to focus on a theme for our family which is, “JUST DO IT!!” Often times him and I will talk about things we plan on doing and dont do anything to get it done or crossed off the list. I think him and I are ready to move on to bigger and better things in our lives like buying a new home and getting some financial goals set. So we decided to challenge ourselves and focus in 2019 of getting this done. Does that ever happen to you, where you are just tired of talking about it and you are ready to be about it? Yeah, thats us right now!

Anyhoo, this plaid “dress” is actually a trench coat. I don’t understand how because nothing about it says its heavy enough to be just that. So I decided to wear it as a dress! I paired some cute tights with it and a bold ankle bootie. Which I am obsessed with the look and comfort of this boot. Definitely pick up a pair…. or two!

What is your focus for 2019?

Hey Loves!

 

Let’s talk quickly about this Zara snakeskin dress dupe before Xavier wakes up from his nap! This dupe is by Shein and its only $22!! The Zara original is about $70, so obviously this is a good steal. There are a few differences in comparison to the Zara original, so lets discuss!

 

What are the differences between the Zara & Shein version?

The Shein version of this snakeskin dress is about ankle length in comparison to the Zara midi, mid knee length. It also only buttons to about mid thigh, so this is a dress you’d want to pair with leggings or jeans as I did, unless you want to wear a slip or get more buttons added to wear it as an actual dress. Another difference is that the belt on the Shein version does not come with a buckle. Its just a fabric belt. Lastly, the lining on the inside of this dress is white which you can see face forward (see 3rd pic down), as the dress doesn’t button all the way down. I wish the inside of the dress was the same snakeskin print so that its more cohesive.

 

Not all dupes are created equal, this dress is great but those differences may matter to those of you who want an exact dupe.  Again, my only qualm is with the white material on the inside shows since its not buttoned all the way down.

 

Anyhoo, Xavier just woke up so I gotta go, lol. Mom life!

Its the most wonderful time of the year…. for Fashion in my opinion anyway. I adore wearing beautiful coats and boots during this season. Dallas does get cold during the winter, it may not be consistent or last as long as it does up north. So please understand how excited I get to break out my coats and knee boots. I was so into the over the knee boot craze for the past few years, that I believe I’m over it. Especially when I laid eyes on these Nine West beauties a few weeks back!!

 

These knee boots are even more beautiful in person: they are black, but color block in camel, navy and gray suede. The heel height is about 4 inches and they are comfortable as well. They are only available in size 5 on Nine West site. However, I found them for you on Zappos. So be sure to grab these asap before they sell out!

 

This coat is another stunner! The colors in this coat goes so well with my boots! I will say this coat is not heavy, its more like a car coat or a topper in the sense that the weight of the coat is in comparison to a heavy cardigan. So I wouldn’t wear this in 30 degree temps with the expectation of being kept nice and warm. But, its a great transitional piece to carry into the winter season!!

 

What are your favorite style pieces to wear during the Fall/Winter season? Obviously mine are definitely coats and boots! I always buy a new coat and new boots every year. I can’t get enough!

 

Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see all of my looks! These days with a baby, its getting a little challenging to write up a blog post. So Instagram is much easier for me to stay connected with you. Be sure to follow me HERE!

Hey loves!!

Let’s talk lipsticks! I love a good one and typically reach for one rather than gloss. So I thought it would be fun to share with you today some of my favorite MAC lipsticks! I feel like MAC lipsticks are typically consistent and never fails me. I own about 20 so far. But, these are my top five or six lipsticks that I constantly reach for and love every time I put it on! I think my favorites covers every shade one typically looks for when it comes to lipstick shade: red, nude, browns, mauve and dark. As a woman of color, its so important for me to see how a lipstick shade will translate on my skin tone. Lets face it, not all nude lipsticks are created equal! So I think I have a nude shade a lot of you will love! From matte to satin finish and shade variety, MAC lipsticks typically fit the bill and gets my coin. It is what it is people!!

 

So lets break down each shade and why I love it shall we?

 

MAC lipstick in “Chili”

I know some of you are surprised that I did not say the very popular “Ruby Woo” by MAC. I have “Ruby Woo” and never reach for it. “Ruby Woo” has a blue undertone to it and I like my red lipsticks to have more of an orange base rather than blue.  I feel like orange base reds suits my skin color better and I always love how it looks on me. “Chili” has a matte finish and I usually pair it with any red lip liner I have in my vanity.

MAC lipstick in “FreckleTone”

 

This is like a peachy nude shade and I love it so much. Its like your lips but better! I love it on my skin tone. The peachy tone stands out, but not in a crazy way. Every time I wear it, I’m always so surprised by how good it looks! I usually pair this with “Cork” lipliner by MAC. But, you don’t really need to do a lipliner in my opinion. Freckle tone is a satin finish. Sadly, its discontinued! The nerve (clutches pearls)!! I’ll link a dupe for you below at the end of this post.

MACs lipstick in “Captive”

 

This shade is a pretty mauve tone that I purchased earlier this year. I love mauve lip shades and was in search for the perfect one. This isn’t exactly what I am looking for, but pretty darn close. Its like a deep raspberry shade and I really love how it looks on my lips. I paired this with a neutral color lipliner, so you really don’t need a lipliner to match this exactly. Its a satin finish and just gorgeous on! Grab it ladies!

MAC lipstick in “Verve”

Verve is a hard shade to describe. So I had to go to MAC website to help me out. Its described as a muted brownish plum and they are exactly right. The brown undertones definitely pops against my skin tone. Honestly, I cant pinpoint exactly why I like this shade, but it always looks so good on and stays in my purse! Verve is a satin finish lipstick. I pair this with “Cork” lipliner.

MAC lipstick in “Whirl”

Y’all, I love Whirl! I forgot I had this shade and found it in my bag the other day. Its another brown but not as deep as Verve. It has more of a reddish brown tint to it. Its just so darn pretty! Whirl also has its own lipliner so I pair it with it as well. Whirl is a matte shade and I just checked MAC website and its described as a dirty rose, not a reddish brown like I just did. Ok, whatever its just a darn good one! Give it a go!

MAC lipstick in “Rebel”

Its vampy, its sexy, its perfect for Fall! I recently grabbed this and had to add it to my list. Its so pretty! Its described as a creamy plum and has a satin finish. I paired it with “Nightingale” lipliner and it looked perfect. This is a statement lipstick that I would wear for a night out. But, if you wanna rock it for daytime, go right ahead girl! Everyone will be asking what is that lipstick you’re wearing because its so good!

MAC lipliners in “Cork, Nightingale and Whirl”

Ok, so “Cork” has been around FOR-EVER! I remember having it in high school (1998-2000) and wearing it with “C-thru” lipglass. The combo everybody and they mama was rocking back then. Cork is perfect lipliner to pair with lipstick shades that are too bright or light and you need to transition or blend the shades together. Unfortunately, “Cork” is being discontinued. Why?! I did manage to find one retailer who still has it in stock, which I linked below. So stock up if you can! I have “Chestnut” but its a bit too dark for my skin tone. Nightingale is perfect for your deep vampy shades and Whirl is a good pinky tone neutral liner you can rock too. Out of these three, I’d highly recommend Cork. I wear it so much and can’t be without it! I’ll definitely have to get a few before they are no longer available.
