Hey loves!

Instagram has been a little source of contention for me lately. Instagram six/seven years ago was fun. There wasn’t the pressure of getting a ton of likes, followers or anything. I was inspired and intrigued by the images posted and the people themselves behind the camera. But now?? I find myself rolling my eyes at the things people do for likes and follows. I started to wonder why I was becoming so annoyed with my beloved Instagram. Then it came to me, it’s not the images themselves that were starting to annoy me, but the person behind the lens. Yes, thats right the Influencer or blogger that is “getting on my nerves.” Hear me out!

 

Now this post isn’t to bash anyone or hold anyone responsible for not keeping my interest on Instagram. But, I am sure we all at the age where we can tell someone is not their “cup of tea” or hey, we just do not have anything in common! Thats mainly why my unfollow game became so strong. I started to notice people personalities (maybe lack there of) and their overall vibe which forced me to question, “who the heck am I following?”

 

I’m not asking for you to entertain me or meet a certain level of expectation. But really, who are you?  Most of the accounts I follow on Instagram are fashion bloggers or influencers. So yes, it can get a bit repetitive in seeing similar styles and looks because it seems no one is an individual anymore. I digress, thats a whole other blog post! But, I’m just getting to the point where I want to know who you are behind all the pretty pictures. Feel me?

So who do I unfollow on Instagram?!

There are some bloggers who basically just sell their outfits of the day or promote their blog posts ALL THE DARN TIME.  You are pretty much the sales person I walk around to avoid at the store because I am not in the mood to be bothered. Every caption on Instagram is about the top you’re wearing, your Instagram stories is about telling people you have a new blog post up and to sign up for LiketoKnow.It. just about every week. Meanwhile, I don’t even know if you have a dog, cat or a goldfish. Isn’t there anything else about you besides you trying to earn likes, follows and commission sales?  This is why I unfollow on Instagram! I’ve had to hit the unfollow button on these Influencers so many times. I just simply cannot!

 

Let’s discuss those bloggers who will not respond to any questions in their comments or DMs. I also know quite a few bloggers who literally have said in their stories, “do not DM me about what I am wearing, head to my blog and go to my “SHOP” page to find out.” What?! This is such a huge, missed opportunity to properly engage with your audience. I do understand that some bloggers have a tremendous following, so they may not be able to respond to every DM about a pair of shoes they have on. But, I was taught, “its not what you say, its HOW you say it!” Its your followers that are helping you to pay for that Chanel bag or your rent and car payment each month. Treat us with a little decency. Actually, don’t even worry about it. Let me hit that unfollow button! Bye!

 

Here’s a quick one that I just had to understand and move on from. Influencers who only wear high end designers that I’ll never be able to afford (cause, you know I got daycare bills the amount of a mortgage payment over here).  Who wears a lace cami or satin top for $600 with a pair of jeans or a summer dress thats $900 that literally has me at “hello!” I’m sure I could find a look for less, but obviously your brand is not catering for my high-low, I’ll wear a Target piece with a quickness self. So why am I here? Let me move on and unfollow on Instagram! Its been real girl!

 

Ok, here’s a hard one that I gotta keep it real about. The ones who captions beg for sympathy and empathy basically all the darn time. I mean, whats really going on over there girl? Are you just going through a bad season in life or is this you every single day? Because I can keep you lifted in prayer, but are you popping up on my feed with signs of depression or some issues you need to let go and let God…. Y’all don’t come for me on this one. I honestly question if people are doing this to increase likes and get engagement on an Instagram post. Again, I’ve had to unfollow on Instagram. I can’t have this kind of negativity and bad energy come up every time I log into Instagram. I told you my unfollow game is strong. I’m not playing!

 

How do you feel about my thoughts on Instagram?

I know this blog post is unexpected. But, I feel by now you guys know I try to switch it up on the blog and discuss some topics that have been on my mind. My friend always laugh at me when I tell her “oh I unfollowed them” because she know I don’t play with entertaining the foolery lol. I just think its important to show people different facets of who you are. What makes you laugh? What’s important to you? Are you a foodie? Whats your favorite cocktail? What do you do to unwind or what you cooked for dinner? Something, anything to let us know that you have other interests other than what you present on Instagram. You know–in the perfect lighting, with the perfect filter and telling me to buy your shirt and it comes in five different colors. Insert eye roll here.

 

Ok, I’ve ranted long enough! Let me know your thoughts!

Happy belated Mother’s Day to all of you mommy’s out there!

 

Mother’s Day is usually a weekend of reflection for me. Mainly because my mother passed away several years ago, so its always a difficult time to take in, accept even. For some of us, we don’t have the gift of taking our mom’s out for brunch, or snapping pictures showing how much we love and appreciate our mothers. We only have the memories that we hold on tight to daily and try to push through the day as much as we can. I always encourage anyone as often as I can to tell their mother they love them. It’s the absolute worst thing in life to lose your mom. What you don’t want is there to be any words left unsaid. I know that sometimes there is strife or wrong doing that some folks have suffered from their mother or you may have to love them from afar. But, if you can just drop those three little words in when you can, you’re giving yourself a gift!! Just in knowing that your mom knew how much you loved her, no matter what!

 

What has saved me from most of the pain of no longer having my mother here on earth, is having Camille. Being a mother is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Period! Its saved me in a lot of ways! I often doubted why God would take my mother away, why me? When Eric and I was trying for a child, it was not easy! We went through some difficulty and I questioned my faith in God. I grew up in church all my life and I knew that I had to hold on to my faith as tight as I could. Because if I let go…….!!! That little bit of mustard seed faith I had in wanting a child was just enough.  I became pregnant and was blessed with Camille! It showed me that God was listening! He heard my cries and my prayers!! Going forward, I saw that He never left me alone. He was right by my side and saw the desires of my heart! You guys can clearly see that she is my greatest gift from God, I’ll never take it for granted!!

 

Motherhood can be amazing, exhausting, scary and thrilling all wrapped up into one. Often times I wonder, am I a good mother? Did I lose my temper too quick? Am I not patient enough? Did I scold her instead of talking to her about what she did wrong? Am I spoiling her too much? We have a lot of fears as mothers, after all we don’t want to screw up the most important job in the world!

 

In today’s world filled so full of beauty standards, social media and just straight out racism, I wonder how can I empower my child to stay true to herself? To understand that she is beautiful, strong, intelligent and worthy of everything else she desires? My mom always said, “the world is getting wiser and weaker.” Y’all the “weaker” part scares me! We see it daily! So how do we ensure we impart wisdom and knowledge to our children so they don’t get caught up in the foolishness? I know I am not alone in these thoughts, right?

 

In a few weeks, my son will make his presence on this earth. My son! Those words are a little scary to me, because I feel like I’m such a girl mom. But, this is another layer of motherhood I will have to experience that I am nervous about. Raising a strong, black man in today’s America is scary! As an African American, its scary times right now! I don’t want my son to be seen as a threat, I want him to be seen as the child of God that he is! My prayer is that God truly gives me the wisdom and knowledge to raise my kids. I want them to break barriers, be educated individuals, make sound and wise decisions. I want them to do better than mommy and daddy. After all, that is the goal for each generation to succeed the prior one right?

 

What are your thoughts on Motherhood in today’s society?

I know this is not my usual fashion blog post. But, these thoughts have been on my heart for a while. You know how it is, sometimes we just don’t know how to say it or express it. I would love to hear any encouraging words you have regarding motherhood today. As they say it takes a village to raise a child. That’s the kind of positive, strong community we all need to make it through this thing called motherhood!

Hey loves!

 

Can you believe March is basically over with? My little one is due June 30th and I need to get cracking’ on soooo many things. I need to move Camille to her new room and redecorated as well as get his nursery painted and start decorating his room too. It’s a bit overwhelming to think of my things to do list. Its long y’all, long! Send help!

 

This cute sweatshirt dress by Who What Wear was a Target find on one of my many Target runs! I had to get this sweatshirt dress because my clothing selection these days is running low lol. I paired it with sneakers, what woman am I becoming? Lol. You guys know I love a little heel or a flat, but I fell in love with these rose gold Reeboks I found at DSW. They are so comfortable and I’ve been wearing them a lot lately with just about everything. Do you have any comfortable, but stylish sneakers you love? Let me know, I wouldn’t mind getting another pair… or two!

 

So back to this pregnancy, I have 16 weeks to go! It’s unreal. I take my second glucose test tomorrow and I am praying I pass it. I didn’t do so hot on the first one, so it’s making me a bit nervous. This pregnancy has been very exhausting and full of morning (noon, afternoon, whenever) sickness. So as you can imagine, I just want the rest of my second and third trimester to go as smoothly as possible. I want to avoid any issues where I can. Although, that seems a bit hard to do considering I want to eat ice cream in bed whenever I can?? Don’t judge me y’all!

 

Now that I’ve gotten my second wind and have more energy, I am working on getting some content going for you guys. I want to do a video on my favorite lipsticks, nursery reveal, vacation looks and my summer must haves. So get ready ladies! Get ready!

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!

 

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!

Happy Friday eve!!

I don’t know about you but the kimono trend is here and I am feeling it. Kimonos can sometimes be a bit tricky to pull off. They can be too long and drag to the floor, too big to where you feel like you’re wearing a bath robe or even the fabric can be too flimsy or silky. Basically, you have to find one that works for you in terms of fit, use of wear and how you plan to rock it!

 

It was Zara (one of my fav places to shop) who had some super cute kimonos this season and I fell in love. I wanted them all! Fortunately, the Zara sale came thru and your girl got two to cure my craving. I particularly love how this kimono has buttons so it draws you in a bit and creates a shape. This eliminates the problem of feeling like you’re drowning in fabric. I wore it to brunch with a fellow blogger this past weekend. So of course we took to the streets and took some pics afterwards. I got soon many compliments and it made me think to round up some kimonos for you to try as well!

But, before we get into that, lets discuss a few things to look for when buying a kimono and styling it.

 

First, fit is everything! Kimonos typically come with a belt which is helpful to cinch you in and create a shape. But, if the belt is a bit too thin or give you bath robe vibes, consider wearing a wider belt with your kimono instead. Sometimes just because a belt comes with an item, doesn’t mean you should wear it. Switching out the belt gives you an opportunity to give the kimono some extra flair. Not to mention, make it your own unique piece!

 

Second, wear fitted clothes underneath the kimono such as a dress, skinny jeans or pants, pencil skirt or shorts like I am wearing here. For me, I don’t feel I would look good with loose clothes under an already flowy kimono. As you see in the pic, I chose to wear a cami and shorts which are more fitted to my body versus being baggy. I have seen some style the kimono with loose fitted pants and it looks amazing on them. But, I’m 5’3 so I want at least one piece to be fitted to my body so that I am now drowning in material.

 

Thirdly, determine what length is best for you. Kimonos come in various lengths which I love. That means if you are on the shorter side, maybe a kimono that hits at the thigh is best for you. You can also go midi length with the kimono which would be a great layering piece with a fitted dress. Ankle length kimonos also look great with pants or skinny jeans. The one I am wearing is a bit in between midi and ankle. So it worked perfectly styling it with shorts.

 

I hope these tips were a bit helpful in finding the perfect kimono. I’ve linked 21 for you to shop all under $50!! I already have a few of these on my wish list!

 

Which one is your favorite? Are you here for the kimono trend or nah??

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!

Y’all, I have been so out of order! Since Thanksgiving I have been eating all kinds of mess. I know I am not alone! Cakes, pies, sweets, fried foods and all kinds of foolishness. One thing I have learned since turning 30, my body is NOT the same as it was when I was younger. I’ve always been a thin girl. Matter of fact, in high school I was called “FM 98,” (a radio station in Detroit) because I weighed 98 pounds back then lol. But, when your stomach has turned into a “gut” thats a real problem. I can’t be out here looking preggo when I am not. LOL. Don’t worry though, because 1/2/17 I am gonna get my life back right! Until then, I am gonna enjoy this food!

 

Anyways, I ordered this tie sleeve sweater dress and honey it’s so forgiving! It’s such a throw on and head out the door type dress. Which is just what I need!  The tie sleeve trend has been big lately. But, I loved that I found the trend in a tie sleeve sweater dress. I mean, who doesn’t need more dresses?! Its affordable too! I wore this dress to a holiday party and felt so comfortable!  How are you loving these fishnet/ lace tights? I think I got them from Kohl’s years ago and this was my first time wearing them. I really liked pairing it with this dress and booties for more of a monochromatic look! I am definitely considering buying more tights to spice up my outfits. I’ve linked several cute pairs for you below! So check them out!!

 

I hope you have an amazing weekend ahead. I have dinner plans Friday and brunch plans on Sunday. Yep, more eating! I’m telling you guys, I am gonna pull it together for next year. January is my birthday and I gotta be 35 and fine, ok!

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!
