Hey Loves!

So I thought I would start sharing some behind the scenes posts regarding the blog world. I get tons of questions regarding blogging and its high time I answer them. Today, I am  going to chat about Reward Style or “Like to Know It.” What is Like to Know It? Well, if you follow me on the Instagram, you may have seen the term, “sign up for Like to Know It” or “shop my looks with ‘Like to Know It’.” So lets discuss what it means to me as a blogger and to you as a consumer.

So what is it exactly?

Like to Know It is an app or web tool for bloggers to link products they are wearing on Instagram and their personal blogs. I go into the app, select the picture I want to post and link all the products using the tool from the app. Then the image is posted to Instagram. Once posted, the caption includes the url to shop the products and hash tag #likeit as well. As a consumer, this allows you to shop the products from that picture straight from your email. But, you have to be signed up for it FIRST!!

Once you are signed up, all you have to do is “LIKE” my pic on Instagram. Within minutes, the product information is sent directly to your email. This allows you to see where I purchased the item and buy. Its super easy and if you love what I wear, something you should definitely sign up for. They also created an app (FREE) for the consumer.  All you do is screenshot the post of me and shop it from the app. To be honest, I haven’t signed up for that service yet. I am just fine with tapping a pic on IG and calling it a day. I don’t need another app taking away more space on my Iphone, ok?!

Why do you use it as a consumer?

As a person who also uses this as a consumer, I use it constantly. I love using it when I want to know if a product I “liked,” should even be on my radar (how much is it?). Also, I don’t have to wait for a blogger to respond or find it myself. I just wait for the email to pop up and have at it. If you are concerned about getting too many emails, don’t! You can easily log in to your account and select how often you want to receive the emails or none at all.

Why do you use it as a blogger?

Ok, so this is a two fold question. 1) I use it so that my followers can easily shop what I am wearing. Lets face it, life gets busy and I am not always on Instagram readily available to answer questions and comments. So its great that all my followers have to do is sign up and go to their emails to find out the tea on what I am wearing. 2) I earn commission from the products you purchase via the links. I am not shamed at all for saying this pays me some coins!! Now I am not over here getting broke off, the commission is small. But, its definitely nice to see a few of those payments hit my account. #truthtea lol

Conclusion

So there you have it. I hope this has helped some of you who 1) want to become bloggers and want to know what services or tools you can use to monetize. 2)have been seeing this on my Instagram of Facebook and was wondering what the heck it is lol. If you are a blogger and are interested in applying for this program, feel free to email me. But, I will say they are selective on who they accept. And girl, that’s a whole other blog post on that one! Lol.

How do I sign Up?

Sign up for Like to Know It HERE and start shopping!! If you are not interested in signing up, no worries. Just click on the link in my Instagram profile and you can shop the products there! I got you boo!!

 

Stay tuned for more “behind the scenes” blog life info! Feel free to share with me what you would like me to chat about next!

High waisted pants can be a bit tricky to wear. It can sometimes cut you off and not elongate you. For me, my problem area is my stomach and sometimes high waisted pants may accentuate my belly. Trust me, I don’t want that accentuated AT ALL. But, these high waisted paper bag pants that I found at H&M??? In love!! I like how they are a little loose around the stomach area so that you can’t see my pooch. However, they hit my waistline perfectly and the length of the pants are da bomb. I saw my blogger boo, Marche Robinson from Robinson Style, rock a pair similar to these. I knew I had to go buy the ones she had or find something similar. H&M came thru in the clutch and all for $50 baby. Sold!!

 

Let me tell you, you guys are probably gonna get sick of me with my orange shoes and orange Michael Kors bag. But, I love pops of orange in the summer. It just refreshes a look, like wearing it with the army green top and khaki pants. It takes it up a notch!

 

These sunglasses tho’?!

Ok, so I happened to be in Nordstrom Rack the other week (um more like once a week) and I found these GORGEOUS pair of sunnies. I’ve been wanting a nude/ pink pair of sunglasses for a minute. But, most of the ones I found either washed me out or it was too big of a contrast against my skin tone. So when I put these babies on, I was shocked. The color of the sunnies were pure perfection on my complexion and the shape is amazing. These are by BOBBI BROWN  (the makeup artist, not Bobby Brown the King of R&B lol). I didn’t even know she had an eye wear collection!  The style name is “The Reagans” and I purchased them for $40. I could not find them on The Rack’s website. I could only find it for the original price on another website. So try to check your local Nordstrom Rack first to get it on the low, before paying the original price. I wore another Bobbi Brown style in my previous post (click here). So definitely check out her collection and fall in love with a pair or two like I did.

jumpsuits, asos jumpsuit, denim jumpsuit, spring jumpsuit, dallas blogger, black fashion blogger

Jumpsuits are usually the first thing I look for when wondering what to wear to an event. They are an easy outfit considering its only one piece and tend to make a statement. I was recently inspired by a few jumpsuits that I saw on Pinterest of one of my favorite fashion bloggers, “Wendy’s Lookbook.” So I went to my favorite online store, ASOS, and immediately went to the search button and typed in “jumpsuits.” Well, that led to several pages that I did’nt particularly want to sift through.

 

Until I thought… I wonder if they have any cute denim jumpsuits?!

 

So when this off shoulder (yall know I love an off shoulder anything), ruffled, wide- legged beauty popped up. GIRL, I added it to my cart so fast. I am signed up with ASOS two day shipping service and I STILL could not wait for it to arrive!! Its seriously the most perfect, statement making jumpsuit for spring. Brunches, date nights, vacations! It will get so much love I cannot wait to wear it out again.

 

Ok, so how does this jumpsuit fit?

This fits true to size in my opinion, I ordered the size 4 and size 6 and kept the 6. My waistline like to act funny sometimes and I don’t always have time to play games. So I didnt want anything holding me back from wearing this jumpsuit. So the six fit me perfectly without being as snug in the tummy as the size four. Other than that, the fit gets a two thumbs up in my book!

 

Guess what, its now been marked down to $38!! Won’t He do it?!

 

I hope you have a great Easter weekend ahead. I will be attending church on Sunday and cooking dinner at home with my family. Easter always makes me so emotional. When I think of the sacrifice of a man who died for my sins, just so I could be me??

Its AMAZING!!

Hey Loves!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend. My weekend was spent cleaning the house and attending an Alvin Ailey Dance Company performance. Which by the way was simply amazing!! Such a great opportunity for some culture and to get dressed up. Speaking of which, I dont always get the opportunity to put on a pretty dress and hit the town. Especially as a mommy, the days of getting dressed up sometimes feel few and far in between.

So, what is my mommy style?

I wanted to discuss mommy style today on the blog. I learned quickly when Camille came home from the hospital, that getting time to take care of myself would be rare. If I wanted to take care of me, it would require effort on my part to not let go of what made me feel good as a woman. After all, who wants to lose their mojo?

 

Those of you who are moms understand the typical “mom uniform” of yoga pants or sweats can get pretty boring. And dare I say, not always stylish?!

 

I find it important to look for comfortable pieces that also has style and allows you to look well put together. For me, some days that is boyfriend jeans and a tee or most recently, this combination I am wearing here. Printed leggings and this super soft velvet/velour hoodie. Which is probably the most comfortable and simple outfit in my closet!

 

You guys, I have worn this outfit OUT! From dropping Camille off at daycare, meeting a friend for breakfast or hitting the grocery store, this outfit has kept me all the way together. Not to mention I usually end up petting this sweatshirt because its so darn soft and comfy. I definitely cannot exclude these polka dot mesh leggings. Seriously, how cute are they?!

 

I hope this outfit idea shows you that not even a fashion blogger is ALWAYS in heels or dry clean only pieces. There is a time and a place for everything. And most times, comfort does win. But, sacrificing style is never an option!

Friday is upon us loves! I think every person in the world loves Friday. Its when the work week comes to an end and the promise of relaxation, sleeping in, happy hours and brunches are on the horizon. Its also the day when most companies allow for that most wonderful day called Casual Friday. Let me tell you, the struggle to put on office appropriate clothes was a difficult one for me. I would grab whatever had the least wrinkles and wore it with pride. I’m a girl who loves her jeans so for me, Casual Friday’s is where its at!

 

Today’s look is perfect for Casual Friday. The flare sleeve blouse works so well with the flare jeans! When I saw this blouse, I immediately had to have it. The ruffles, stripes and the ties on the sleeves all plays so well together. Its blouses like these you are happy to have in your closet. It pairs well with jeans, skirts, pants, culottes. Its just a perfect piece. Not to mention, this flare sleeve blouse is ONLY $23!! Girllll, yall know I love affordable fashion. We ball on a budget over here. This is a steal too good to miss. So get you one soon!

 

What do you have up for the weekend? Me? I’ll probably put off cleaning and find something fun to do 🙂

 

See you Sunday for my next post!

Its almost Friday!!

 

Definitely time to celebrate! Soooo about this off shoulder blazer… I’m here for it! So often, it seems like you’re wearing the same thing over and over and nothing stands out on its own. Well, when I saw this blazer, I knew I had to have it. I mean, you all know I love off the shoulder anything, but to see it in a blazer is totally news to me. I had to order it and see if I loved it. And with this look, I most certainly do!!

 

This is another SheIn purchase! I know some people are a little hesitant to order from SheIn. You may have heard of those crazy stories where people order from those overseas websites and buy a dress and it looks a hot mess. Well, I’ve ordered from SheIn quite a few times (just search my site)  and I have not experienced those horror stories. What I like to do, is read the reviews of the item I am interested in FIRST before purchasing! That way, I have a good idea if I am buying a good piece or not. This off shoulder blazer has a good weight to it and great structure! The only thing that bugs me is that you see the two buttons from the bottom up, except at the top of the blazer, you only see the one. Its made to look like that, but thats a detail I would love changed. Otherwise, this is definitely a stand out piece and guess what? You probably won’t see many people wearing it because its so unique and its just different!

 

What are your thoughts on this off shoulder blazer? You here for it or nah??

Hey loves!

Spring is here in Dallas! As a Michigander all of my life, Spring usually doesn’t hit Michigan until about May. So to have warm spring weather in Dallas in March always amazes me. But, I’m here for it because I can start transitioning winter pieces in my closet and remix them for spring! Like this velvet midi skirt I got a few weeks ago. I have been in love with it since I pulled it out of the package and the luxe velvet touched my fingertips. Was that too much? Sorry, but this skirt is just simply LOVELY and I want you to buy it!

 

If you are wondering how to wear velvet in Spring, the answer is pretty simple. You want to find a lightweight velvet piece that you can easily layer to go with the ever changing temps. The idea with extending velvet from Winter to Spring, is to make it more of a transitional piece that you can layer with multiple items in your closet. When I bought the skirt, my initial plan was to wear it with a sleek turtleneck and knee boots with a nice, streamlined coat and vampy lips. Well, I never got around to wearing that look since Spring got here so quickly. So I made some easy changes to make it spring ready! When I styled this look, it was one of those moments where I was desperate to make it happen. I was deep in my closet, searching on what to wear with this skirt. Nothing really stood out to me and I was close to giving up lol. Can I be honest with you for a sec? When I post looks on the blog, there is a little pressure there to get the look right. So I really go through it when I am creating an outfit because I don’t want y’all side eyeing me like “ummm girl, no!” lol.

 

Anyhoo, I am certainly pleased with this look. It has my name written all over it! I was glad that I was able to pair this velvet midi skirt with a few other spring transitional pieces such as the bomber jacket and the open toe booties (old Zara sale goody). I see myself wearing this look to events, church and brunch too!

 

I hope this post on how to wear velvet in spring gave you a few ideas. Do you have any velvet pieces in your closet that you want to carry in to spring? Let me know, I’d love to know how you plan to wear it!

Hey loves!

So we all know we need a classic white shirt in our closet, but sometimes you need to jazz things up! When I found this ASOS ruffle sleeve shirt I immediately fell in love. The best part is that it’s only $52!  Thats quite a steal for such a unique  shirt! Its perfect for jeans, skirts, culottes and anything else. I love those pieces in your closet that makes a statement. It makes getting dressed a little bit easier because you don’t need much to make your outfit stand out. You just put on this shirt and make it do what it do! I’m here for that!

 

I posted this shirt on my Instagram last night and everyone fell in love with it. So I figured I would post this look today for those of you who may not have seen it. You might wanna grab this ASOS ruffle sleeve shirt immediately before it sells out. I definitely don’t want you to miss out or FOMO as today’s generation calls it lol.

 

Right now the fam and I are at home in our pjs full from breakfast and enjoying a relaxing day at home. I absolutely adore the weekends! Especially the ones when we make breakfast as a family, curl up on the couch with no real plans but the day ahead of us. I love a little get up and go, but I really enjoy and appreciate these moments even more.

 

What are your plans for today??

Hey there!

 

Soooo, I pretty much want all ten of the lace cami’s I have linked below. Why? Because they are an excellent transitional and layering piece to your wardrobe. You can layer them under a suit, blazer, jean jacket or cardigan and look amazingly chic. I’m all about pushing thru and giving a little chic to my wardrobe. I stumbled across this one at Nordstrom Rack and fell in love with how soft it was and the lace detail in the back of the tank. It doesn’t take much to make this cami look gorgeous and work with any outfit.

 

When I put together my outfit looks for the blogs, often times I have NO CLUE on what to wear. Its hilarious to me that as often as I shop or receive certain things for the blog that I still have no clue what to wear. The night before this shoot when I was  pulling looks, I was so tired and over it. I was like girl throw that together and call it a day and go to bed. Well, look how cute it all came together! A lace cami is exactly why you need one or two in your closet for those moments where you want an instant outfit and move on with your life. Pair them with boyfriend jeans, culottes, midi skirts or wide leg pants and you are winning honey, winning!

 

I hope you enjoyed this look. Let me know if you add any of these adorable cami’s to your wardrobe!

Stay tuned for Thursday’s blog post. I have another NYFW look for you to see!
