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!

Hey Loves!

 

If you’re on Instagram like I am and follow a lot of fashion bloggers, you will see the plaid blazer appears to be the “IT” item of the fall season. Its not hard to see why not: clean classic lines, a great layering option and a simple, sophisticated look. I cant wait to  pair my $35 Target blazer with wide leg pants, jeans or long, flowy skirts!

 

Ok, I know your eyes grew big when you read that this blazer is only $35 and from Target! I saw this piece online and on one of my many, weekly trips to Target. I knew I had to have it! It has a deep purple line if you look closely, which makes it so fun to add contrasting colors to make the purple show even more. I went all jewel tones with this oldie but goodie handbag, my trusty Zara bandana scarf and gold, satin mules!

 

Graphic tees are always popular and a go to for when I want to make a plain outfit more fun. I went home to Detroit a month ago and had to get another Detroit Vs Everybody tee in white and black. Be prepared to see me in this bad boy all the time. Y’all know I love my city and I represent Detroit whenever I can.

 

So how do you like the plaid blazer trend?

Do you see yourself participating? I’d say its a definite staple that you may be surprised how often you reach for it! Especially with the crazy, changing temps we’ve all been experiencing lately over the U.S.  I’m already seeing myself pairing this blazer, belted with some palazzo pants!!

 

See you Sunday for a special travel post! I’ll be sharing a travel diary of our family road trip to Traverse City, Michigan!

Hey Loves!

 

Happy Sunday! I receive so many emails, DMs or what have you from those of you who are interested in blogging. The blog life can be A LOT!! I haven’t gotten to where I want to be with blogging. It is my hope to do it full time with the income to match. I got a ways to go before I get there. But, let me tell you, the journey has still been quite rewarding.

 

Blogging requires time, money, and passion! If you plan to only blog once a month or barely that, you need to re evaluate your goal. You MUST be consistent. Blogging is an oversaturated industry. I always tell those who are interested in starting a blog, that you have to treat your blog like it’s your best friend. You don’t go months without saying hi to your bestie do you? If you did, your relationship may suffer a bit and you may not be as close as you once were. Thats why consistency is important! If you followers don’t see you or hear from you, they move on to the next blog. You have to remain in front of the faces of those who support your blog. Otherwise, they will forget you and move on! You want to grow your audience, in order to do that, you must remain present!

 

I have been blogging for about 2.5 years. Majority of that time I was working a full time job. Well, I was laid off several months ago. I am actually looking into a new career in the field of Social Media. I am hoping to work with a brand or company as a Social Media Specialist or Strategist using what I have learned in blogging. During this time of being laid off, I had to be more mindful of my spending habits, which also meant not shooting with my photographer every two weeks. Insert tears here! lol. It’s not too bad, as its hot here in Dallas, so the thought of doing a shoot in this heat drains me. So I have to look for other ways to get pictures done and keep the blog going.

 

Queue the title of this post, work with what you have!! My husband blessed me with a DSLR camera for Christmas and honey it’s the best gift ever! I’ve used this baby constantly!! I am yet learning how to use this camera to the best of its capability. I took online workshops on photography, looked on Pinterest for tips and just practiced on how to use my camera.  Today I had the day to myself with Camille in school. I had to get this top and beach blanket photographed for the blog. So I pulled out my tripod, my handheld timer and headed to my back yard. I just wanna say that I appreciate my neighbors for their gorgeous pink tree in the background. It was just what I needed for a pop of color lol.

 

So even though this photo isn’t filled with a bright wall, or a downtown backdrop, its still a pretty picture. Sometimes we get caught up in to the look of things, that we don’t admire whats around us. The trees, the sunshine and the breeze that blessed me this morning. Now, the mosquito bites I received on the other hand, I can’t do anything about that! lol.

 

I encourage you to make the best with what you have in this blogging adventure. People are looking to see you for who you are. Who is the girl behind the lens? What is her personality? What makes her laugh, what makes her dance?! Embrace that and enjoy the ride!

Want to know more about this Blog Life?

If you enjoyed this post, PLEASE let me know. I have more to come! Especially behind the scene tips and the like!

Hey loves!

 

So I was contacted by Chrystal, the owner and designer of Fifteen and Fifteen, a handbag and accessories company, to check out her handbag line for review. As soon as I clicked on her site, I was immediately drawn to the fanny pack and knew I had to have it. This Fifteen and Fifteen fanny pack is leather, big enough to hold my iPhone 7plus (because thats important) and you can also wear it as a cross body or clutch. I love when I can get a versatile handbag that I can style multiple ways. It also comes in burgundy and black. Absolutely perfect for fall season, am I right?!

 

Its so funny, I remember back in the day (late 80s, early 90s) rocking a fanny pack a time or two. My mom had one too. It was the age of convenience over fashion. If we were headed to a theme park or field trip, the fanny packs came out to play. Too bad they were not as cute as this one. Clearly we committed a few fashion dont’s back then! Lord, bless us!

 

Anyways, its hot as heck here in Dallas. So I kept this look simple and wore it with t-shirt and jeans. Oh, and this Zara bandana scarf? I happened to find myself there the other week (oops). I had to have it for only $12! Sometimes, you just need a little “something” to pull an outfit all together and I believe this scarf did just that. I’ll be wearing it all season long with blazers, jackets, wrapped around my handbag and even a bracelet. I can’t wait!

 

Where can you purchase this Fifteen and Fifteen fanny pack?

 

Head to Chrystals site or check out the ones I linked below. Everyone will be asking you where can they find this unique piece. Best part, its very affordable too. Trust me, you won’t be sorry!

Hey Loves!

 

So I was in Target the other day (what else is new?) and saw this color block leather skirt beauty on the rack. Of course, I had to pick it up and try it on. This color block leather skirt is a new piece from the Who What Wear collection at Target. If you are not familiar, Who What Wear is a clothing line that features on trend, affordable clothing options exclusively at Target. I am a sucker for anything leather, so add in a bit of color blocking and all for $32?! I’m here for it!

 

I typically don’t shoot fall looks so early considering its about 90 degrees here in Texas. But, I wanted to get this look out to you guys before it sells out. Its such a great piece that you can wear with blazers, sweaters, blouses. Shall I go on? So I sacrificed myself a bit (and my edges lol) to bring you this look even in the heat. I do it for my followers!

 

I kept this look simple by pairing it with a black bodysuit and black heeled sandals. The skirt makes such a statement on its own. There’s really no need to do anything else. Don’t you love those pieces in your closet that just speak for themselves?

 

Have you checked out the Who What Wear fall collection at Target?

 

What new items had you at hello?? I linked a few of my picks for you to check out as well.

 

 

Happy shopping!

Relationship goals, closet goals, hair goals, shoe goals, life goals! Y’all I am about wore out from all of these “goals.” Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen a many a picture where closet, hair and shoe goals have been met! But, relationship goals?! Let’s think about it. Most times when we say or refer to relationship goals its due to a picture or a video we’ve seen on the web. The internet has a funny way of making everyone lives looks so easy breezy. Its mainly because we allow people to see what we want them to see. But, we all know that we are only seeing a snippet of someone’s life, right?

 

Now, I know Eric and I are serving up all kinds of fierceness in these pictures.  This dress by Rent the Runway, LIFE! And yes, many will look at them and say, #relationshipgoals. And its nothing truly wrong with saying that. I know its a little bit of a compliment. But, I think its important that people have a true understanding about what relationships are and the work it actually takes before we start hash tagging and what not. Relationships aren’t always easy! I don’t always feel rainbows and butterflies when I see my husband. I am more so giving him side eye about the lightbulb that needs to be changed or how he doesn’t put my lotion back after he uses it. Yes, that really irritates the life out of me lol. But, real talk, thats just some petty stuff that he does that irks me. I am sure he has his list of things that I do that works his nerves too. Eric, if you are reading this, don’t come on here listing stuff I do that get on your nerves! Don’t try me! Lol.

 

I think its so important for todays generation to fully understand the importance of healthy relationships. I see so much in the news and social media that troubles me about people getting involved with the wrong person. I know I will teach Camille that she is a beautiful, intelligent and fierce woman who deserves to find a husband to treat her as such. Its important for us as adults, to really inform today’s generation about what healthy relationships really are. They should know that healthy relationships are when you are loved, treated with respect and kindness. Also, that relationships may have its ups and downs too. I mean nobody is perfect! Am I telling the truth?

 

Relationships come in all forms and everyones experience is different. Its nothing wrong with that! So long as its REAL!!! Some of y’all are married or with your boo thang and you’ve never had an argument, you’re so deep in love and can’t spend a second away from your bae. He’s the best thing since sliced bread and your relationship is so easy. Ok, then great! But, over this way, thats not how OUR relationship roll. Eric and I like our alone time to chill and do our own thing or watch our own tv shows, we roll our eyes at each other more so than giving each other the dreamy eyes. I get on his nerve and he gets on my last. We fuss and get into arguments! There has been a few times where Eric could catch these hands lol. We’ve gone days without speaking to each other (that was wayyyy back when, the Lord has brought us a mighty long way lol). But, we also love each other very much and he supports me as if I can do anything in the world. So now that you know this, does it mean we are not considered “relationship goals??” Of course not!

 

I like to roll with this hashtag I found on Instagram that I find more fitting and just makes more darn sense, #relationshipsbelike. Yes, thats more like it! I think that helps to broaden and round out what relationships truly are. Relationships be like love, respect, honor, fussing, fighting, making up, laughter, joy, pain and support etc. Yep, this is one that I can get down with! Now trust, I am not spilling our business to the world in this blog post. But, I like to keep it real honey and if I can’t do that on my own blog, then where can I do that at?!

 

Let me know your thoughts on the matter! I would love to have some dialogue and hear your opinions!

Hey loves!

Dallas weather is so unpredictable. One day its 80 degrees in November and the next the high is 50! I like transitional pieces for this reason, to stay covered up! I’m a Midwest girl and I just believe in always having a little jacket to keep covered when the weather can’t make up its mind. I don’t have to catch the pneumonia just because Dallas can’t get it together! No ma’am! So I am totally loving this lightweight olive trench from Pink Blush Maternity! Pink Blush is a fabulous online boutique that offers versatile pieces that all of you stylish mommies can wear from pregnancy to motherhood! Now isn’t that nice?! Lord knows I wish I knew about this store when I was pregnant with Camille. This olive trench would have given me so much life!

 

Now no, your girl isn’t pregnant. Although we are hoping to try next year! But, anyways I find the concept of PINK BLUSH to be so on point. When I was pregnant with Camille, I only had about 5 pieces of maternity wear because I just couldn’t find anything stylish and didn’t want to waste money. I mean I know I was pregnant and all but I still believe in slaying even still! lol. Imagine finding cute pieces you can wear from pregnancy into motherhood, so easy right?! Right! As soon as I pulled this olive trench out of the packaging I knew it was meant to be! The fit and comfort of this thing is just perfect! I even wore it for a night out with my girls. I was cute y’all, cute!!

 

What transitional pieces are your favorite? Are you feeling this olive trench coat? I know I am!

 

I am going to try to post Thursday but y’all know its Thanksgiving and what not! I’ll be busy cooking in the kitchen. If you don’t hear from me before then, have a fabulous Thanksgiving! I am SOOOO thankful for you all!!

What to wear to the airport? The night before my trip, I ask myself this question because its quite important. Comfort is key  and it’s especially important if I am traveling with Camille. The days of wearing heels to the airport are long gone for me. I tried that a few times and regretted it immediately. Since then I would reach for flats, but now that I have a child, sneakers it is! I am not a sneakers kind of girl, so thats saying something if they are a must-have for me when traveling. I need to be able to move about comfortably, have great foot support, be able to quickly put my shoes on and ready to carry my child in the event the stroller is just not her jam that day. Thats that mom life for you!

 

Anyhoo, this look is perfect for travel! This sweater is super soft and great for layering. I realize its now fall/winter for some of you where you life. But, you can easily layer with a leather or suede jacket, a thin long sleeve or thermal underneath this sweater, a scarf and you are good to go. My leather leggings are super comfortable too. The back of them are fabric so it gives me great mobility and stretch. These are old Forever 21 leggings, I have linked a few for you below as well.

 

For those mommies out there who are nursing (boy I know all about that, I nursed for a year) this top is perfect to wear when traveling with your baby. You can wear your nursing bra or tank underneath and easily reach under to unsnap. The neck is also wide enough to where you can peep inside to see baby! I know how those nursing capes are, Camille hated being under one. But, with this one being an actual sweater, that makes it near impossible to do unless your little has super strength. Who am I kidding? Most of them do lol.

 

Most importantly, you need a good tote bag to carry all of your gear. The St. Anne tote from Barrington Gifts is a great travel companion. I carried it on our trip to New York and loved it. Its very roomy! I stuffed lots of things inside and still had room.  For me, its always important to have pockets in a tote bag. This one does not disappoint, there are side pockets that held my phone, cell phone charger, card case and a few more things. Most importantly, I loved that I was able to customize my tote bag! I chose the print, color of the leather straps, monogram style and color of the stripe too!! I am all for making pieces my own!! Don’t you? Barrington Gifts also has great diaper bag options as well in case you are interested! So check them out!

 

I hope this post has given you style inspiration on what to wear to the airport. Traveling is fun, but we want to be at our most comfortable as well. Who knows how far away your gate is from security or how long you are standing in the security line right? But, you can still look pulled together and comfortable at the same time! Thats how I like to travel. In style!!

 

What are some of your go to looks on what to wear to the airport? Please share!!

I swear I cant have too many leather jackets. Each year I look for another leather jacket that I will fall in love with. A great leather jacket makes it so easy to look well put together. They are one of my favorite fall fashion staples! I picked this one up at a local consignment shop here in Dallas called Refinery Consignment for a steal!! As soon as I saw this BCBG jacket I snatched it off the rack and ran to try it on. Oh and the shoes too, I know you are salivating over these beauties! They are by L.A.M.B. and are another Refinery Consignment steal. If you are in town, definitely check this store out for great designer pieces at affordable prices! I need to stop in soon myself to see what other goodies I can find!

 

Jackets and coats are some of my favorite wardrobe pieces to buy actually. Why? It could be because I am a Midwest girl.  I remember every fall my mom and I would go shopping for a new coat. I would always get so excited for a new winter coat and I still do! I’ve linked a few great leather jackets for you below as my jacket I cannot find online. These jackets are on my wish list and that hunter green one is calling my name!!!

 

Is a leather jacket a fall staple for you? Let me know!
