So we all heard of the old saying that you cannot wear white after Labor Day. I use to follow that rule years ago, but I know better now. And when you know better, you do better, right? Let’s say yes to wearing white after Labor Day! I am sure you may wonder how to wear white in the fall. Its actually really easy! I love pairing white with camel brown shades. Its the best color combo to transition white into Fall season.  Don’t you think?

 

I scored this camel satin bodysuit at Forever 21 recently. Its a good piece! I strongly recommend picking this up for Fall. Bodysuits are a great wardrobe piece because they fit and lay so well under jeans or pants. No worrying about tucking in your top or having lumps and wrinkles showing underneath your clothing. No ma’am! Nobody has time for that. I am actually thinking of doing a post of some great body suits we could all use for our Fall/Winter wardrobe. Let me know if you’re interested!

 

Well, this post isn’t really a how to per se’. But, more so giving you a visual on how to wear white in the fall. These jeans are an oldie and goodie from Nordstrom Rack. They fit amazingly! Every time I put them on I am so glad I bought them. I definitely need to wear them more! My plan to do that is to pair them with more camel, reds, burgundy and navy colors for Fall and Winter. What do y’all think?

 

Do you wear white after Labor Day?

 

Sometimes we gotta throw away those old rules. As long as you feel fabulous, who really cares?!

Love, love, love this Who What Wear Collection jumpsuit y’all! I kept seeing this jumpsuit all over Instagram and didn’t think much of it until I saw it at my local Target. The material has a nice feel to it and the details on the jumpsuit are really nice. Its utility style so you get the rolled sleeve look and the cute pocket detail as well. I was a little nervous about the fit because even though I’m only 5’3, I’m all legs. But, the moment I slipped it on it fit perfectly! Don’t you love when that happens?

 

This Who What Wear jumpsuit is perfect for Fall! You could definitely pair it with sneakers or a bootie. I pulled out my favorite leopard studded heels to elevate this look. I love me some scarves you guys! My love for scarves come from my mother. She had a drawer full of beautiful scarves and like mother, like daughter. I have a drawer full too! So I thought it would be cute to wear my leopard bandana-style scarf as an unexpected accessory. My friend Renae who took these pics said I was giving her Carmen San Diego vibes. I’m here for that because I adored that show as a child. Perhaps that is why I love this jumpsuit so much?

 

Will you be picking up this jumpsuit? Let me tell you, do not wait to get it. Its selling like hotcakes! I picked up a small and I say it runs true to size.

 

So tell me, how would you rock this Who What Wear jumpsuit? I’d love to read your thoughts!

I love a good skirt! Thats why I am so excited about this super cute satin midi skirt by Who What Collection for Target. Its so good y’all! The rust color is gorgeous, the material is really nice and the tiered detail of the skirt is just on point. This skirt also comes in two other prints: a floral and a leopard. Oh, guess what? Its only $29.99. Darn you Target! You get me every time!

 

This skirt can go from work to play. Pair it with a nice blouse or blazer for a more work appropriate look. Also, you can make this look a little more playful by pairing it with a graphic tee and fun shoes as I did. I love it when a look comes together! Its so simple and easy. Effortless I tell you!

 

This graphic tee is also from Target! I’m so glad I stumbled across this tee as it was hanging on a rack filled with various graphic tees. The material is so soft you guys. I know I will be getting a lot of use with this tee. Even though it is short sleeve and light weight, its perfect for layering with denim, a camo jacket or a plaid blazer. Graphic tees are always so fun to style. Check out how I styled a few others in my collection HERE and HERE!

 

Lastly, are these shoes. I’m sorry but if you didn’t participate in the Zara sale this summer, you did yourself a disservice. These shoes were marked down to about $45 and I had to have them. They of course pair so well with this skirt and everyone will ask you “where did you get those shoes?” I haven’t stumbled across any dupes unfortunately (I found one pair on eBay which I linked!) I always tell people don’t sleep on Zara. Pay attention to their inventory and when they announce sales. Because they are epic I tell you, EPIC!!

 

Are satin midi skirts your thing?

 

They are definitely mine. I know I will be adding a few more to my wardrobe in addition to satin midi dresses as well.

 

Stay tuned!

I am beyond ready for Fall! Its my favorite season, especially for fashion. However, its still in the 90s here in Dallas and show no signs of cooling off anytime soon (what else is new?). Even so, I have to get my fix on incorporating some Fall fashion even though its still hot outside. Transitional fall pieces are key to begin incorporating fall fashion into your looks. So lets discuss shall we?

 

Let Fall colors inspire you!

An easy way to begin is to think of how to incorporate transitional fall pieces using fall colors into your wardrobe. As you can see, I paired this army green utility shirt with the rust colored tank top. I am bringing in rich tones which are Fall inspired, but I paired it with denim shorts to suit the current weather. Colors such as greens, oranges, browns and even jewel tones are trending big for Fall this year. I love the rust as it really compliments my skin tone. Find a Fall color you love and make it work with your summer wardrobe. That way, you are welcoming the fall shades but not sweating buckets in a sweater or jacket!

 

Incorporate Fall 2018 prints in lightweight fabrics!

Leopard, snake skin and plaids are also trending for fall. An easy way to incorporate these prints as transitional fall pieces are to find light weight fabrics you can layer that can take you from summer into fall. For instance, a lightweight skirt in a leopard or snakeskin print that you can wear now with sandals and pair with knee boots or tights come fall season. This Who What Wear skirt will be perfect to do just that!

 

Wear pieces you can easily layer!

This utility shirt is one of my new favorite purchases that I have gotten so much use out of recently. I’ve worn it layered  over tanks, paired it with a fun skirt and I can also rock it with jeans or wide leg pants.  Again, I am using the green to bring about a Fall feel into my look. Its also lightweight enough that I can wear if its warm outside or under a cute blazer too!

 

Have fun with accessories!

Fall makes me think of golds, browns, black and wooden accessories. The bag I am carrying is a great transitional fall piece, not only because its black but because of the handle detail as well. So look for cute bags that evoke a Fall feel. Also, break out those thick gold necklaces, cuffs and wooden bracelets too. These are great finishing touches that pairs well under blazers, coats and dresses.

 

What transitional fall pieces are you currently wearing?

I’d love to know. I cannot wait for the temps to drop so I can really wear my boots, sweaters and blazers. Hurry up Texas, get with the program!

Y’all, this Zara dupe bodysuit is a good one! I initially saw this bodysuit on Zara’s website and in store and I adored it. Bodysuits have a way that fits and lays so easily on the body and perfect to wear with jeans or a skirt. This bodysuit retails at Zara for $50! Well, your girl found it on Shein for only $22! Save your coins when you can ladies, save your coins!

 

I kept it simple and paired it with my favorite pair of flared jeans, layered necklaces and these gorgeous shades from The Impeccable Pig. These shades scream 70s vibe and pretty much set the entire look off! This Zara dupe bodysuit looks like the original version and fits just as nice. You could even layer a fur vest on top of this to take it to the next level. It was warm on the day we shot this look, so I didn’t even bother to pull out my heavy fur vest. But, don’t you love it when you can create a variety of looks just off of one piece? I sure do!

 

I linked a few  Zara dupe bodysuit that I thought you might love too. I’m contemplating in grabbing them all because its such an easy way to create a simple, stylish look. These days, with the chaos of the holidays, no one has time to spend on trying to create an outfit. With this Zara dupe bodysuit, just put on cute bottoms and go on your merry way!

 

How do you love this Zara dupe bodysuit?

How would you rock it?

Have you heard of the saying, time is precious? Well, let me tell you, this year I have truly learned and embraced the meaning of that saying. The value of my time is something that I have become fully aware of this year. I am not sure if its just getting older and wiser, or what! But, I’ve started to examine what or who requires the use of my time and who I am willing to give it to. No, I am not being extra. But, it seems like we give so much our time to people or places we want to go and things we want to do and we burn ourselves out. We are exhausted, drained and in need of a recharge because we are trying to do every darn thing. Do you understand what I mean?

 

I figured out that I sometimes have that fear of missing out. You all know what I am talking about, our days and weekends are packed with all of these activities that we don’t want to miss. I don’t know who I  think I am fooling because half the time I really don’t want to go or be bothered. The day of the event comes around and I am tired from the busy week or just want to hang with my family.

 

As a blogger, I get invited to quite a few events. Most of these events are during the work week and downtown. Which means I have to coordinate with my husband on him getting home in time from work to be home with Camille and then spend over a hour in traffic during rush hour to attend these events. Then I have to be socialize for a few hours while I am there and then trek back home in the evening.  So I’ve spent my time doing all of this just to leave the house for a few hours and basically show my face. Exhausting to say the least!

 

In the past few months, I’ve started to examine the value of my time. I don’t know where it came from. But, I felt the need to really figure out what I am trying to do and accomplish when I stretch myself thin. Ultimately, it is up to me to figure out who or what I am going to give my time to.  God is of course number one and I know He deserves way more time from me then I give Him. Also, the most important of course is my family, everything else is truly secondary. I also feel that friendships are deserving of my time because lets face it, sometimes those friendships help keep us sane.  So once we figure out who deserves our time, its easy to figure out who or what does not right?

 

Not always! This can sometimes be trial and error. Sometimes we don’t realize when we allow people or things to take our precious time away from us. We spend time arguing, hating, comparing and y’all favorite word, being petty with some folk that we should have cut off a long time ago. We put ourselves in situations that often leave us uncomfortable and questioning why did we waste our time here? Girl, this is when the value of your time need to kick in and you start evaluating things a little deeper. We’ve all been there, but I am here to tell you that I am reclaiming my time as Auntie Maxine said!! And guess what, you should too!!

 

So start taking a closer look on who or what you give your time to. If it requires too much, its time to determine if its worth it. I know I am! I don’t always have to attend every single event that stresses me out before I even get there. Or try to make time for people who don’t make time for me. Now I realize the value of my time is worth something. We have to use our time wisely! Once you see there is value in that, you’ll begin not to take it for granted as we all do!

 

How do you give your time?

Do you evaluate it closely or find yourself giving your time to everyone?

I often receive emails and DM’s from my followers asking for help with getting help with blogging, partnering with brands and to check out their blogs to give my thoughts and opinions on improvements.  I guess after almost 3 years in the game, I better know a little sumthin’! Not only that, its also flattering that you trust my opinion. You guys respect what I do and see me as someone you can approach to even ask me!! It truly makes me happy that my followers see me in this light.

 

Today I was working on a “Pitch 101” presentation to go over with a friend of mind who is also a blogger. In the past week or so, I’ve gotten a few emails or messages asking about blogging. It got me to thinking about offering blogger consultation services to those of you who are interested in speaking to me regarding blogging. I truly believe this will be a great benefit for those of you who want to learn more or just go get my feedback.

 

I will offer different packages for the blogger consultations so that there is something for everyone. From the person who  aspires to start a blog but no clue on where to begin, how to pitch and partner with brands, improving your social media presence to performing a blog audit if you’re already in the game. How does that sound??

 

I will be working on getting the blogger consultation packages going over the next few weeks. I believe this is going to be a great way for us to grow together in this blogging world. Its no longer the time to operate in fear, but to achieve the things we feel passionate and strongly about! Am I right?!

 

Are you interested in my blogger consultation service??

 

Click HERE to review my services and pricing and lets get started! If you have any questions before getting started, I  would love to hear from you via email if you’re interested.  If you are not interested in blogging, share this with a friend who is! If you are a business owner and  want some assistance with Social Media, drop me a line too!

Y’all, Girlfriends was one of my absolute favorite shows back in the day. Joan, Toni, Maya and Lynn were the Girlfriends I wanted in life. Stylish, fun, supportive and always giving the best one liners you could ask for. So when I came across this Girlfriends tee on Instagram, I had to have it!! I know you want one too!!

 

Toni was my favorite character. My bad, Toni Childs Garret! She was full of one liners, fashions and bomb hair! Yes, we knew she was always doing the most. But, I loved her regardless! Joan was a close second. The one friend thats always there for Toni’s antics, however, her own life was just of a mess too. Her fashion was always on point. I dreamt of one day wearing bad (fierce) suits and clutch bags into the office just like Joan. I always hoped she would find love, even though she always played herself in relationships.

 

Maya and Lynn were those hilarious friends that told it like it was and had zero filter. Maya, especially!! I thought her tv husband, Darnell, was so fine! But, I was legit happy when they got back together after their divorce. That scene at the church was everything!

 

Lynn! This child right here was the free spirit we all want to be, but too scared to commit to in life. Yes, she was pretty much a free loader with her fifty degrees. But, we loved her anyway and sometimes you have to love your friends through their craziness.

 

Next Shipment date is November 7th, order your Girlfriends Tee ASAP!

If you don’t do anything today, make sure you order this graphic tee to add to your collection. Oh, and this pink, midi skirt too!! With the Girlfriends tee and midi skirt combined, you are letting everyone know where your style genius came from!

Hi There!

 

My girl Melody of Blingaholic88.com had an awesome idea of doing a fall inspired, Dallas blogger shoot entitled “Slaying In The Country!” Fall glam in a country setting is the perfect juxtapose if you ask me. Fall is my absolute favorite season, especially for fashion. So of course, I was so on board to meet with a few local Dallas bloggers to make this happen.

 

Its hilarious that we all showed up to the shoot in warm wine tones and black. It was not planned at all, trust me! But, isn’t our back drop amazing?! I plan to return back and take a few holiday pictures with the family. We really had a good time at this shoot. I mean, I think us jumping in heels is pretty hilarious in itself. Am I right?

Go Follow these Dallas Bloggers!!

Well, let me introduce you to the lovely ladies in this shoot. Kenya Denise of KenyaDenise.com, Melody of Blingaholic88.com, Brittany of BriDezel.com and Ashly of FoxyVeggies.wordpress.com. Be sure to head to each of these ladies blogs to see their individual pictures from this shoot as well. They are truly the sweetest and I know you will like their content.

 

Do you have any plans to gather up your best girlfriends and slay in a photo shoot?

Y’all when I tell you I was so excited when I saw this denim dress at Anthropologie the other week. This dress hugs the curves, has a corset top, heavy denim material perfect for layering for the fall season but was also under $50!! It didn’t take me long at all to take it straight to the register to bring it home! I mean who can beat that deal right?

 

I grew up in the church. Church of God in Christ (C.O.G.I.C) to be exact! I’m talking all day Sunday, Tuesday night, Wednesday Night and back again on Sundays. We could not wear pants period. So I always had a slew of skirts and dresses on hand. A denim dress was a constant go to for me to wear to church during the week. So when I saw this piece, it gave me all the feels. Yes, it was annoying to only wear skirts and dresses, but to this day I cannot go to church in pants lol. I guess old habits die hard.

 

Anyways, this dress has the options of being worn so many ways. You could layer a tie knot blouse underneath, a turtleneck or even top it with a blazer. The denim is a nice, heavy, weight so its perfect for fall. I already see myself wearing this dress with a blazer and some baaaad knee boots. I seriously cannot wait for it to get cold hear in Dallas. My boots and fall clothes are so ready to come out and play! Dallas weather, whats good?!

 

Question of the day?

Tell me, when it comes to going to church, do you wear pants or ONLY a skirt/ dress? I would love to know!

 

Check out this dress and a few other cute denim dress options that I have linked below!
