Target “Chic” Tee 

Who What Wear Satin Midi Slip Skirt in “Spice”

Zara Velvet Lace Up Heel

 

 

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!

Target “Universal Trend” White Sandal

 

The contrast stitch trend this summer is one that I am loving. From dresses, pants, skirts and jackets everyone can easily participate in this trend. I think what I love about it is the black and white stitching. It really makes a statement and adds interest to a classic color combo.

 

I first happened across this trend on Zara’s website and fell in love with the skirt I have on. I loved that it was a wrap, midi skirt and the white stitching against the black. Of course, I loved it even more when it went on major sale at Zara! Its no longer available, but I linked another contrast stitch skirt dupe for you to pick up as well! There are a few other contrast stitch pieces I would love to add to my closet such as a wide leg pant. If I am able to find a good pair, I will be sure to let you know. It would be perfect to carry into the fall season.

 

Let’s talk about these sandals. They are a Hermes “Oran” dupe without the $750 price tag! I’ve been loving the Hermes version, but its so out of my price range. I happened to be in Target one day and found these sandals. They definitely fit my price range and are super comfy as well. I loved the white as its perfect for summer. It also comes in tan too which I am thinking about picking up as well. Target is such a dangerous place to shop. I am always finding things I don’t need. But, I simply refuse to leave behind for such a good price. Who else is a Target fan?

 

What do you think about the contrast stitch trend?

 

I think the contrast stitch is not a super trendy look. You can definitely make it a staple piece in your wardrobe. There are so many ways to wear it. You can keep the black and white look throughout the outfit or add a pop of color like I did here with the orange/rust top. Also, another Zara sale find too! Zara holds the key to my heart you guys!!

 

So are you here for the contrast stitch trend?

We all know the power of a good blazer right? Well if you didn’t, let me enlighten you. Blazers have a way of ticking off that missing piece when you need to pull a look together. It adds clean lines, gives a polished look and make you look like a BOSS! Who doesn’t want that? I always been a blazer girl, but quite honestly I’ve been slacking in building my wardrobe of this transitional and functional piece. I think I have one or two blazers now as I have given quite a few away. So when I saw this blazer was a part of the huge Zara summer sale, I knew I had to have it. Its lightweight, a gorgeous color and at an incredible price. Add to cart please!!

 

I know you may think that blazers are only for Fall and Winter. But that is not so my dear! Dependent on the fabric, you can wear a blazer year ’round. Its a great layering piece to have in your closet, so be sure to look out for a good one year around.

 

Where are your favorite places to shop for blazers?

 

 

Zara offers some gorgeous blazers at good prices. H&M and ASOS usually have some good ones too. Also,  check out thrift and consignment shops too for more affordable options! I’ve rounded up tons of blazers I’m sure you would love for a great price! I am excited for Fall to arrive in Dallas so I can pair my blazers with jeans, dresses and skirts. So many possibilities my friends!

Happy Weekend!

 

The clear handbag has been all the rage this summer. You may have seen it as a tote bag, clutch and everyday bag. I absolutely love the clear handbag. But, I’ve seen it cost as much as $500!! I don’t know about you, but I am not paying $500 for a piece of vinyl. Of course, I found a look for less option! Guess what, its only $12!!! Yes girl, $12! Now you can participate in clear handbag trend without breaking the bank. Ball on a budget!!

 

This white shirtdress has been on the blog quite a few times (HERE) and (HERE).. Its such a great piece to have in your closet that you can layer with come Spring and beginning of Fall. This is an oldie from J. Crew Factory. I’ve linked some similar options for you as well. I say every girl needs a good white shirtdress in her closet. You can rock it with a denim jacket, layer it with a v neck sweater or put a tube top over it for a totally different look.

 

These white lace up sandals are from this Summer Zara sale. I had my eye on these babies all summer long, but wasn’t sure if I wanted another white shoe in my closet. When I saw it was apart of the Zara sale, I knew it was meant to be. I’ve gotten non stop compliments on these shoes. They are so cute on! They are no longer available at Zara, but keep your eye out for white sandals as the Summer sales are wrapping up. You may find a cute pair for next Summer or to wear now! Why not?!

 

How do you feel about the clear handbag trend?

 

Are you here for it or nah? I love that this one comes with a smaller, detachable clutch inside so you can’t see the items in the bag!

Well you guys, the time has come! I have to give up my Shoe Room with baby #2 on the way. Camille is going to move into my shoe room and baby #2 will take Camille’s nursery. I knew when I designed my shoe room that this was going to happen once we were pregnant again. I’ve had the shoe room for a little over 3 years now. It was a nice run, but its time!

 

While I am a little sad about this, I am actually ok with having to make this transition. We plan to move some of the things from my shoe room to the guest bedroom. It will basically be a shoe room/guest bedroom. In order to make this happen, I have to downsize and get rid of a lot of stuff. I don’t know if its nesting kicking in, but I am so ready to downsize and let go of a lot of my shoes. Honestly, I haven’t worn many of them in years. So its just taking up precious space and its time for it to go.

 

One of my followers suggested I sell my shoes on Poshmark, so I created an account. There are over 40 pairs of shoes are listed there! I wanted to share with you all my Postmark closet so you can take a look and shop my closet. My shoe size is a  6.5/7 and I will also be listing handbags, Camille’s old clothes and shoes and whatever else I decide to sell. So stay tuned and be sure to follow me there! I rather these things go to someone else who will wear and enjoy them, rather then sitting on my shelf. It got a little emotional going thru Camille’s old baby clothes. Time has flown so quickly. My little tiny baby is now a fiery, sweet little 3 year old. Pass me a tissue please!

What is Poshmark?

Poshmark is a great online platform used to buy and sell clothing/shoe etc items online. Its super easy to set up and get started rather you are buying or selling. So here is the link to my Poshmark closet (CLICK HERE)!  Take a look around and see what you like! I am willing to negotiate prices, so don’t be afraid to ask!

 

Do you need to do a closet clean out? Let me tell you, I am so excited to let go of some of these things and just keep what I truly love and use. After this closet clean out, it will be time to get started on redoing Camille’s room! Let me know if you want me to share that process with you too if you’re interested!

Ohhh girl, let me tell you. The struggle has been REAL trying to be comfortable in my clothes over the past few weeks. Since this is my second pregnancy, I am showing a lot faster than I did with Camille. I’m only 16 weeks and I don’t think I was this size with Camille until I was about 20 weeks. Therefore, I had to find some comfy bottoms to work into my wardrobe. I think there is a limitation as to when one should have on sweats or track pants seven days a week as a wardrobe option lol. I’m just saying!

 

I had some old maternity jeans that I kept from my last pregnancy. When I tried them on,  the jeans offered little relief, the fit was not flattering AT ALL and they lacked style. They were bootcut, no distressing and my butt looked less than impressive lol.  Y’all know I love distressed, ripped jeans and really wanted a pair this go around to work into my wardrobe. Thank goodness PinkBlush has a few options in various colors that fit perfectly and still allows me to be all stylish and what not.

 

Listen, when I got these in the mail and put them on, I literally exhaled. Lol, they are so comfy, my butt looks good in them and the distressing on them is perfection. I can’t wait to order a few other colors such as grey and black. Now I have a pair of go to jeans that I can go from running errands with Camille to date night! I enjoyed pairing it with my faux fur jacket and booties. It was nice to look stylish the day we shot this look … never mind that I’ve been in pjs or sweat pants all weekend long lol.

 

PinkBlush also offers NON-MATERNITY options. So if you aren’t preggers, you do not need to feel left out. Definitely check out their regular clothing line for great, affordable pieces as well. There is something for everyone!

Ok so let me start off by saying this Zara sequin sleeve jacket is no longer available. I purchased it at Zara’s last sale which was during the summer. Its one of those jackets that you know will cause attention. You will get compliments all day long from fashionistas alike! I wore this to brunch before the shoot and couldn’t take it off, I loved it so much. So before I posted this jacket, I made sure to go to google and search to find similar sequin sleeve jackets like mine. Fortunately I found a few! So don’t be too mad at me, ok?!

 

I’m a sucker for army green, especially in a jacket. It compliments my skin tone and I am all for it! So I typically always reach for one when I am out shopping. But, what I liked about this one, was that it was not the same as my other 3 olive green jackets lol. This sequin sleeve jacket makes such a statement and uplifts a plain outfit. I mean all I am rocking is my “Boss So Hard” tee (get you one y’all!) and some ripped jeans. You can easily see how this jacket transforms this simple outfit and makes it stand out.

 

I know I’ve been MIA lately. But, the holiday season has me so busy with preparing for guests, shopping for gifts and trying to get everything in order. But, I do have some looks for you guys coming up soon. So stay tuned!!

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?

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!

Hey Loves!

 

So today I am coming to you with a little coffee talk, chit chat or what have you. This has been on my mind a little bit and I thought I’d share with you all. I often share little tidbits on blogging and how to make it work for you. But, I haven’t shared the down side to it. There are quite a few areas that I can dive in to regarding that. But, lets talk about what makes blogging what it is. The people behind the blog who you follow. The actual bloggers themselves!

 

Now I am not gonna give any names or try to call people out. But, some of these bloggers out here are a trip. Some are in it for the money, recognition and yes the likes. I live in Dallas and there are a TON of bloggers here. Its almost like the darn mecca for bloggers. Because of that, I have met many at social events, blog conferences or meet ups. The great thing about living in a city with tons of bloggers is that you get to meet others who do what you do and  get what the blog life is all about. Most importantly, bloggers with whom you can chat, collaborate or become friends and grab dinner together! I am fortunate to know quite a few of bloggers who I enjoy hanging with and are happy to call my tribe.

 

But, honey let me tell you about those who do not meet my tribe category. The snobby ones who can’t bother to say hello, shake your hand or even hold a little small chat convo with you. The blogger clique who always appear to be at the same blogger event or photographed brand meeting together. Sometimes I think, were they the only ones offered an opportunity? No girl, they just looking out for their clique. Essentially, they are getting money together and ensure that their clique has “the plug” as y’all like to call it these days.

 

Disclaimer: This post is not meant to bash folks, but just to share what I have experienced and witnessed for myself!

 

So lets begin our coffee chat shall we?

 

I recall attending a store event where myself and a few other bloggers here in the Dallas were invited to attend as featured guests. I specifically recall one blogger, who I won’t give a name, left me with a bad impression. So I walked up to her and introduced myself and told her that I followed her on Instagram. She gave me the driest response and looked as so bothered that I was even near her. I’m like really though? Is this how you treat people in general? Her attitude was just so stank and unwelcoming. I couldn’t believe it!

 

Now, I am not going to make this about race or not, but I did wonder if that played a part in her attitude. Also, I know bloggers, who like myself, are of the melanated nature and have all said the same about her. I made sure to unfollow her that night because guess what? I am not going to contribute to you getting any coin from me. Not a click, like, follow or purchase will come from me to support your blog. First impressions are lasting! Every time I see her at an event, I strongly resist the urge to roll my eyes or give her a severe side eye lol.

 

Not supporting up and coming bloggers!

If you guys follow me on Insta Stories on Instagram, you know I typically do a “Follow Friday” a few times a month. Follow Friday is to share with my followers some of my favorite up and coming bloggers in the game who I feel they should follow. These bloggers generally have a following of under 15k and are deserving of more eyes on their Instagram!

 

I mentioned blogger cliques earlier and I noticed that one of the bloggers I used to follow from that same clique, just so happened to be doing the same thing. Well, her and her clique, were all doing Follow Friday and telling their followers to follow everyone in their clique. What annoyed me, is that these bloggers all have over 150k followers!! I personally thought, how obvious was it that they only support themselves?? Why not share the love with bloggers who are trying to get to those numbers? I get supporting your tribe, but again, to me they do not show tribe behavior. Its clique behavior all up and thru and I cannot get behind it.

 

The constant lack of diversity!

Let’s not even talk about lack of diversity when it comes to blogging. I could write a book on that for sure. As an African-American blogger in the game, I cannot tell you how many times I see only white bloggers at brand luncheons, campaign events and the like when I am on Instagram. I’m sorry, but its ridiculous!

 

Some of these Instagram pages lack any African- American bloggers and when you do see one, you have to scream for joy and shout it to the highest rooftop on their page to please share more. No, I don’t want to be invited so they can meet their quota or to take the heat off of people. But, I just believe your brand reach or target audience has quite a few African-Americans or even Latinas and the like as well. So, where are they??? Why don’t we see them? Were they even invited, reached out to, or asked for an opportunity for collaboration??

 

Why do I feel so strongly about this?

 

I know you may be reading this post thinking, dang girl, who made you mad? Lol. Actually, after blogging for almost 3 years, I am just starting to feel some kind of way about the things I see. I’ve been unfollowing a ton of bloggers I use to love because I just cannot take the fakery anymore.

 

One blogger, I use to absolutely love about five years ago! She was even following me back then when I was just taking outfit of the day pics in my backyard. She would even comment often on my pics. I noticed that she has changed so much over the time that her blog has taken off. She won’t even turn her DM on her Instagram. She tells you to go find everything on her blog. I mean, I get it girl, you probably would get tons of the same questions. But, its not what you say, its how you say it! I had to let unfollow her and a few others who appeared to be a bit beside themselves because of their popularity and growth. It just is what it is!

 

What lesson can you take away from this coffee chat?

I know that personally I am in a period in life where either you are real or fake. There is no in between. At this stage in my life where I am a wife, mother, blogger and everything else under the sun, things have to make sense. How I utilize my time and efforts are of the utmost importance to me. This is why its important to me to surround myself with others who like to encourage, uplift and motivate one another.

 

I enjoy meeting other women who are interested in blogging or just feel like we may have a connection. I enjoy getting emails or DMs from my followers who feel they can relate to me! It means a lot. I guess I am saying no matter how you elevate in life, be it career, ambitions or ventures, be true to yourself and others. Be the person you would be proud of! At the end of the day, the number of followers, likes or your bank account will not be how you are remembered. Am I right, or am I right?

 

Share with me some of your gripes with bloggers! This post is not meant to bash folks, but just to share what I have experienced and witnessed for myself!
