TGIF!

A Spring blazer is quite essential as the weather is fickle and is always hard to tell if you need a jacket or not. So I thought I’d share one of my fav blazers from Zara from last year. This is a great example of a spring blazer because the color exudes the season. Unfortunately, this blazer is no longer available, but I rounded up some amazing spring blazer options I think you would love.

Linen would be my fabric of choice for a spring blazer as it is lightweight and breathable. So majority of my selections are linen! Yes, they may wrinkle a bit but if you can find a linen blend blazer, that could be a great option to avoid heavy wrinkles as well.

My high waisted denim jeans are amazing don’t you agree? I shared these Charlotte Russe jeans a few months ago on my Instagram and everyone fell in love with them. Unfortunately, Charlotte Russe is out of business, although they are supposed to return under new management from my understanding. In the meantime, I did find some dupes for you. My denim is more of a skinny jean and has a lot of stretch. The dupes I found are not a skinny fit, so keep that in mind when you are shopping.

I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend if you are a mom! Thank you so much for the kind words of love I received on my last blog post. It means the world to me to receive encouragement from such a great community of women.

I usually encourage every year for Mother’s Day for those of you who are blessed to still have your mother here to show them and tell them how much you love and appreciate them! I know some may not have a great relationship with their mother due to whatever issues or what have you. But, don’t take their being here and alive for granted. Those of us like myself who do not have the pleasure of having their mother living and breathing on Earth would love to share one more Mother’s Day, one more hug and one more kiss. It is my prayer that you share in this day in joy, laughter and smiles!

Motherhood is one of the best things that has ever happened to me in my life. I am so blessed to be the mother to Camille and Xavier. They are my world. I don’t take the gift of motherhood lightly at all. But, can I be free to share the part of motherhood that has been eye opening and emotional for me? Let’s chat about it shall we?

Xavier won’t eat. He only wants to be breast fed. He’s also very clingy towards me. Its hard sometimes to even put him down to take a shower or eat a meal without him bursting into tears. These things have made it challenging and a little stressful for me. We have consulted the doctor on what to do to get him to eat and it appears he may need a little therapy or see a GI specialist to determine the underlying cause. I’m hoping to find an answer to this soon!

As a mom, I am definitely concerned and want a solution to the problem immediately. Its said that breast milk or formula as the sole source of nutrition is fine for babies under a year. Which I am ok with, however, he is not gaining weight as he should. So the pressure to ensure he gains weight at this point is kind of on me since he is exclusively breastfed and refuses to take a bottle. I know this will probably resolve itself overtime. But, with him being so attached to me, it can become a little draining and exhausting to basically be your child sole source of comfort when a toy or daddy just wont do.

Sometimes you just have to cry!

The other day he was so fussy and crying so hard; just me trying to jump in the shower for a few minutes caused a major melt down for him. He’s usually happy to be in his walker in the bathroom while I shower, but that day, he wasn’t having it. The last few weeks he also hasn’t been sleeping well and waking up a good 3-4 times during the night to eat. I am assuming he’s either teething or a growth spurt. So of course, I am very much tired.

It was a rough day and I had reached my max. I text’d my husband to please come home while tears welled up in my eyes. I felt sorry for myself and sorry for my baby because he wasn’t happy unless I held him all day long. Thankfully my husband came to the rescue and had him while I took Camille to ballet. It gave me a chance to take a deep breath and find some peace, even in just the drive to her ballet class.

Once I got home and we got the kids to bed, I talked, well cried to my husband about just feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Of course, he told me I was a great mom and validated me in what I do daily for our family. But, it was hard to even let those words come out of my mouth because as a mom, I feel like I shouldn’t complain. There are other moms out there with kids who “appear” to be managing it all with a smile on their face. But, I know that they have those days too where they just want to scream, cry and find some sort of calm in the craziness of the day.

Its okay to ask for help!

Motherhood is such a gift, how dare I complain about it? This is where I have to tell myself its ok to let all of “this” out: to cry and just reset my mind and feelings. My husband is very much supportive and will help if I need him. But, I have to learn or allow myself to say, “hey can you please… a lot more often then I do now.

I think because I am a stay at home mom, (SAHM) I try to take care of household things and the kids so that my husband can relax when he gets home from a busy day at work. But, that may not be our season right now. Right now, I may need him to help out a little more just so I can not feel so overwhelmed and stressed. Sometimes a spa day or a lunch date alone just isn’t enough. Sometimes you just need HELP!

You will have good days and you will have bad days..

I wrote all of this as a reminder to myself to not try and do it all, ALL THE TIME! Its okay to cry some tears, scream at being frustrated and take some deep breaths to get through the remainder of the day. Its okay to feel this way and still be a great mom at the same time.

The following day after I had my cry session with my husband was a great one. I took Camille to swim class and watched her have so much fun. The kids and I went to lunch and I just felt more free and peaceful. I enjoyed my day with them! When my husband came home, he gave Xavier his bath and got Camille started with hers. I felt more calm, not anxious to get everything done or rushed. Xavier only woke up once last night too! It was a good night. It was a better day!

Talk to fellow moms about their experiences!

It is my prayer that me sharing this vulnerable moment with you helps in some way. I am very thankful too for the mommy Facebook groups that I am a part of that are non- judgmental and a safe place to chat with other moms who may be experiencing tough days. Please let me encourage you to chat with fellow mommies too if you feel stressed. Community is so important in this phase in motherhood. There are plenty of moms who can raise their hands and say, “hey me too!”

I am sure my pretty pictures on the blog give the appearance that I am easy breezy and care free. But let me tell you something! The power of a good outfit, a poppin’ lip and a little photo editing never hurt nobody!

Zara Hot Pink Satin Slip Dress

Target “A New Day” Striped Blazer, old (linked similar HERE)

Zara Metallic Mule (no longer avail, linked silver metallic mule HERE and pink metallic mule HERE)

Urban Expressions Mint Clear Square Tote Bag (sold out, linked white version HERE)

This slip dress with a blazer look is a whole vibe for me. It can translate to the office, well maybe not the bright pink, but totally a more subtle color with a nice tailored blazer would be so chic! What you have to understand with a slip dress is that it can be worn so many ways!! You can’t really get bored, as its such a good staple piece if you ask me.

I happened to stumble across this striped blazer I bought last summer at Target somewhere deep in my closet. I was actually going to sell it since I had not worn it in almost a year. But, once I pulled it out I immediately thought of my new pink satin slip dress I got from Zara. It gave me an idea of doing a slip dress with a blazer look and I really like it! I think the blazer helps to tone down the bright pink slip dress just a bit. What do you think?

I have one more slip dress look under my sleeve coming to you soon. In this particular look I am just wearing the slip dress itself, no layers or anything! Its a really cute look and I believe you will like it as much as I do.

If you haven’t been following along, I’ve been styling a few slip dress looks for the past few months. Be sure to check out those posts here and here!

How do you like the slip dress trend?

Do you think slip dresses are reminiscent of a nightgown? I believe it depends on the print, color and quality. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Its another amazing spring dress!

I’m back at it again with another spring dress find. This striped wrap front dress is such a steal right now as its only $10!! Its no longer available online, but I am sure if you go into the store you will be able to find it. Wrap dresses are one of my favorite dress styles, so when I saw this striped wrap dress I knew I had to have it! The fit is amazing and the price point is even better. Don’t you love when that happens?

This stripe wrap dress reminds me of a men’s dress shirt and I think that’s another reason I fell in love with it. I love how it translates from a menswear type vibe to a feminine one because of the wrap style and how it fits the body. Oh and we cannot forget how you get a little leg action too! I like to call this dress sexy classy. Which is a pretty good killer duo if you ask me!

Do you have your Easter dress yet? I can’t believe Easter is already upon us. I just picked up Camille’s and Xavier’s Easter outfits yesterday. But, I have no idea what I am wearing just yet. Its a little more challenging for me because since I am still breastfeeding, I can not wear just any style dress. I have to wear something that is “easy access” for Xavier which makes things a little more challenging. The joys of breastfeeding I tell you!

Anyways, I wish you a wonderful Easter weekend with your family. In the midst of all the Easter bunny and egg hunts, let us not forget the real reason of Easter! That Jesus Christ died upon the cross for our sins so that you and I can live this life! Its truly something to reflect upon and be thankful for!

Happy Easter!

Its Spring Dress Season Y’all!

Well, in most parts of the country it is! Anyways, lets chat about spring dresses shall we? I don’t know about you, but when the first big break in the weather hits, I’m on the hunt for great spring dresses. Spring dresses I feel are always necessary. We’ve covered our legs all winter season and its time to break free! Am I right? So this gorgeous floral pink and orange dress was just what the doctor ordered…. or what I ordered actually; to get my spring dress game ready for the season!

So I purchased this dress a few weeks back and shared it on my Instagram stories as a sneak peak. Unfortunately, its sold out! This is the downside about blogging, trying to get content and products up before they sell out or most sizes are gone. I strongly suggest you save this dress as a favorite on the website so you can check to see when its been restocked. Please make sure you are following me on Instagram so if I see this restocked, I’ll be sure to share with you there!

Anyways, this dress is beautiful! The pink and orange floral print are colorful yet chic. The dress has three cut outs! One on each side of the waist and one across the waist. I pulled it up a bit on me because I’m not that bold to share my pre summer stomach with you all ūüôā It also has side slits and is made with the prettiest satin fabric. So be careful, it is prone to snagging!

I’ll be sharing with you more pretty spring/summer dresses in my next few upcoming posts very soon, so stay tuned!

Sooo I am a fan of the belt bag trend. I know, I know! The term “belt bag” is a prettier way of saying fanny pack lol. I remember my fanny pack from my childhood back in the late 80s. It was red and yellow fabric that I wore when we went to the theme park. Needless to say, that fanny pack was no where near stylish. But, my snakeskin belt bag most certainly is!

So why do I like belt bags? The versatility and comfort are my top two reasons. I like the option of wearing it on the hip or slung over my shoulder, as shown here. I can carry my essentials and be hands free to manage the kiddos. The snakeskin belt bag I have is so my style! When I was considering buying a belt bag, it of course needed to be stylish. I also did not want it to be huge and bulky. I want to be able to wear it under jackets or over a hoodie without a lot of bulk. This belt bag fit the bill for me and its so chic. I am certainly glad I purchased it.

I linked a few other belt bags I have my eye on that would be cute for spring and summer. Its so cool that fashion from past decades are always cycling through and making a come back. It brings back so many good and fond memories for me. What about you?

Hey Loves!

I hope your week is going well! Here in Dallas, Spring has sprung…. sort of! Its warm and beautiful one day, then rainy and humid the next. Not good for a girl with natural hair, the humidity is NOT my friend lately. Anyways, the Spring weather has given me all the spring time feels and wanting to update my wardrobe. I popped in to Forever 21 the other day and found this super cute trench coat duster. I love the light weight of the duster, that it can be worn as an easy layering piece and that it does not require me to button it! Cause girl, I cannot button or zip anything over this bump, ok?!

 

I’ve noticed that the trench coat is a new spring trend as I am seeing it not only in the form of a coat, but in dresses, jumpsuits and duster style like the one I am wearing. I want it all!! Its a good thing ¬†there are many affordable options for the trench coat trend. ¬†We can all go a little crazy and style the trench coat in so many ways. I’m here for it!

 

Are you here for the white boot trend?

Oh and what do you think about these white booties? I wasn’t sure how I felt about the white boot trend, but I found myself falling in love with it when I saw it styled on Instagram and Pinterest. As long as you keep the outfit styled really simple and classic, it will always pop and look good. I wouldnt spend a grip on white booties though, thankfully these were under $40 and I feel thats all I would pay for a white boot!

I linked some great trench coat options and where I got these white booties for the low! Be sure to check it out!!

Hey Loves!!

 

I don’t know about you, but I am enjoying this closet remix series. Its giving me a new perspective on how to re work a few pieces in my closet. About a month or two ago, I featured this ruffle sleeve blouse on the blog (Click HERE) with a pair of jeans and flats. This time, I remixed it with my new favorite pair of denim shorts and my Valentino, look for less, studded pumps. I like the juxtaposition of a classic white shirt vamped up with the ruffle sleeve and ripped denim shorts together. Its like two different people¬†coming together and vibin’ just the same!

 

Speaking of, I had brunch this weekend with my blogger boo, Renae, of The Ultimate Style Diary. Renae and I “met” on Instagram! She has followed my blog and I hers. She is a native of New Orleans and is one of the sweetest and realest people I know. I wanted to share her blog with you today because I feel its important to spread love in this blogging community. Sometimes, it can be very competitive and challenging. But, I always believe we can all make it together. It should never be a “You Cant’ Sit With Us” mentality (although some folks are like that). Renae has a unique sense of style that I love (I mean, check out that watermelon clutch) and feel that you will too!

 

Meeting Insta-friends on the ‘gram?

You know, its funny, but I have met a few people that I follow or follow me on Instagram and now we do brunch or hang out. Believe it or not, Instagram is like a new way of meeting people. Its great to meet new people who you share a common bond with and can get to know over lunch or coffee. I use to say no new friends, but blogging has changed that for me. I enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them. It makes blogging more personable and allows me to connect with others. Instead of feeling like a girl behind a computer wondering, is anyone even reading this? Lol.

 

So please be sure to check out my girl Renae blog and her Instagram. We had so much fun chit chatting over brunch and taking pics of each other. That blog life is real honey!

white shirt dress, closet remix, j crew factory shirt dress

Original look from 2 years ago!

 

Hey loves!

 

So here is part 2 of the closet remix series. I love this J. Crew Factory white shirt dress that I wore on the blog about two years ago (see original post HERE). Shirt dresses have a way of being super casual or nicely dressed up. So I decided to show both versions of a casual, every day vibe vs. a dressed up version with heels and a statement bag. You can not go wrong with either look. When I wore this dress for my photo shoot, it was sooo comfortable. I could have worn it the entire day. But, mommy duty called and that typically means wearing white is a disaster waiting to happen lol.

 

White shirt dresses offers a really clean, crisp spring look. But, any color shirt dress will give you just the same vibe. The one I am wearing is, as I stated, is about two years old. But, shirt dresses don’t go out of style. You can jazz them up with a corset belt or a colorful scarf. The options are endless. Most importantly, they are a tried and true staple piece and I am definitely picking up a few other colors and prints for the summer.

 

What are your weekend plans?

I cannot wait for the weekend, its filled with plans for one of my favorite things to do. Eat! lol. I am not sure if I mentioned this here, but I will be in Las Vegas next week for our annual girls trip. Oh the fun that will be had! So I’ll be gearing up with last minute purchases and trying to get my house in order before I leave. My mom always said to make sure your house is in order before you leave town. So a little grocery shopping is in order and preparing a few meals so the hubby can throw them in the microwave. A wife and mother’s¬†job is never done I tell you!

 

Also, I plan to share with you some of the clothing pieces I got in for my trip, once they’ve all arrived. So stay tuned to my Instagram to find out more!

 

Have a great weekend!

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!
