Do you remember making fresh lemonade and setting up shop on the corner street? Ok I didn’t! However I remember picking lemons in my granny’s backyard. The only thing abut my granny’s lemons is that they were sweet. How do lemons become sweet? Well the neighboring orange tree crossbreed with the lemon tree making an lemorange or an orangemon. Whichever way you these lemons made the best lemonade. You could eat them raw and not once have to pucker your face.
This outfit giving me summer breeze on grandmas porch drinking that good ole sweet lemonade. This 2 piece outfit is from SteinMart, it is very vesatile as it comes with high waisted pants that are lined. So no peek a boos. The top can be cropped or you can pull it down to meet the pants at your waist. It’s off the shoulder with straps. This shirt is a plus because it’s bra friendly.
The red option is if you are feeling bold. I felt that this already vibrant outfit needed a contrasting color so why not red? I added this red floppy hat that is old from Walmart, my JustFab tie up heels and a red Kenneth Cole tote bag.
For the white an denim option. Now this was easy and safe. Since denim goes with just about anything, this was a no brainier to pair these basket weaved denim heels with this outfit. Toss on some darling cat eye shades and there you have it.
Two complete looks in one. Which is your favorite look?
Friday Vibes.. You have no idea how happy I am that it’s Friday! Ant this all stripe and pop of silver outfit is setting my fashion sense free. Matching sets have been in trend for the past 2 years. I think it’s funny that people find this trend to be knew.. it’s not it’s just been revamped from the 70’s and 80’s.
This entire outfit is from… can you guess??? NY & Company.. I can’t help but to shop there they always get me right! This outfit is no long online but can be found in stores. I love the ankle pants that NY & Company has to offer. As the cut and fit are just right.. They also have a good amount of stretch. The top is made out of a chiffon material with a cotton underlay! perfect for those spring and summer days!
I paired this look with my silver JustFab oxfords.. just to give this look some added flare.
On this rainy day I thought it would be great to post this spring transitional inspired outfit. I’m over here struggling as we have had some beautiful spring days within the past few days.. and now it’s back to cold and raining. yuck! Come through Spring come through.
This is such a simple outfit for those on the go days. I took my simple all white zip Express blouse, topped it with a simple soft pink sweater kimono from Dress up. I had to jazz up this outfit with my distressed paint splattered jeans from NY & CO. I absolutely love these jeans, very fun and playful for spring and summer. I decided to stick with the soft pink for my shoes as these JustFab open toed lace up’s did the trick.
It’s finally Friday Jr.! Have you ever looked on Pintrest and you see these glamorous bloggers in their cute skinny pants, simple blouse and heels? have you ever tried a look that and couldn’t master it? Well here is a simple way to do just that!
First you need to figure out what color you are in the mood for.. and if you do not have a wide range of color selections your closet, no worries pull out your best pair of jeans! In this case I chose my black skinny stretch jeans from NY & Company. The next step is to pick out a blouse or even a sweater, whichever is more appropriate for your climate. Since Georgia is currently transitioning to spring early I opted for my favorite animal print blouse. I love to be warm and since I work in an office I wanted to drape this look with royalty shall I say.. I fell like a million buck in this green velvet blazer that hails from Dillard’s! Now you already know what are the odds of finding green velvet? Very odd! But JustFab came through on these lovely velvet green pumps. Depending on your style you can wear heels, flats or boots depending on what best fits your personality for that day. It’s as simple as that. outfits made easy!
Didn’t I tell you ladies that NY&CO has been killing it with the jeans? These are another pair I picked up form them.. Online the lace looks black however it’s actually blue. No worries black blue..both are neutral colors! These jeans are apart of the boyfriend soho line and let me tell you, they are more than comfortable has stretch and they don’t shrink. I have been wearing a size 0 for the past 2 years however 0’s are starting to “fit” me way to snug so I bumped up to a size 2.. YAYAYAY I am gaining weight lol.. ladies this has been a struggle of mine all my life. I am probably the only person you will know that is happy about putting on a little weight..
Anyways back to this outfit. I paired these jeans with a lace detailed sweater also from NY&CO. This sweater can be dressed up or down. It also comes in white with black lace and grey with black lace. so gorgeous I want them all. I added the yellow hooded puffer vest for some color. I love jackets and vest with hoods. I have a hard time finding outerwear like this so I had to snag it. I paired this entire outfit with my JustFab booties. This entire look can be found online shop this look now!
Don’t you just love a good outfit that satisfies your fashion taste! Truth be told this outfit gave me life. I am so excited that the Georgia cold front is coming through. I can finally wear all my winter collections.. I talk as if my closet is a showroom. Anyways, let’s start off with this gorgeous olive green parka.
I was immediately draw to the faux fur. The mixture of purples with the olive green is so pretty. Of course it’s from NY&CO. this jacket is no longer available however they have stocked a new faux fur parka line for this season. I will leave links below, also they have more selections in store!
I did some Black Friday shopping and picked up this $9 long line sweater in this purple color from JCPenny. I figured black matches well with anything so I hit this sweater with my black studded legging from NY&Co. I usually like prints when I have solid pieces, my cheetah print Michael Kors blouse worked perfectly underneath this sweater. Topping this look off with my suede low heel tie up booties form JustFab made this entire look come together. Such a simple outfit that looks pow pow pow!

Do you ladies ever go thrifting? Well I must say thrifting for me is therapeutic.. it’s almost like a hunt or what great items will I find.. I have 2 hot spots I love to thrift and consign at. one is the GoodWill and another is a black owned thrift shop called Best Kept Secret. I have actually posted a few other items from BKS on the blog. BKS is actually black owned and if anyone knows I love supporting black owned businesses!
So lest get right into this furry outfit. Stating form head to toe, I purchased this fabulous fur vest from BKS. It’s originally from Chicos and it still have the $150 price tag on it! I love how the faux fur offers different neutral tones that is pared with a cream knit back and a leather belt. I placed a simple cream sweater underneath. my skirt is thirfted from the GoodWill. I love the grey wool blend with the gold sailor buttons. As it gets colder I will definitely wear tights with this but I thought my legs look good enough to wear with they extra high heel booties! I kept my accessories simple with a gold wrist-lit.
Don’t be afraid to go thrifting you never know what goodies you just may find.
And I’m ready to sing
Pick up my girls and hit the party scene
Tonight, oh it’s alright”
Now let me here you say “Back, back forth and forth” Aye Aye.. I am having my own party it’s FRIDAY!!!
I am such in a chill mood right now that’s why this outfit is perfect for the first day of Fall! Red, black and white are always in style especially worn as sweats. Lace detailing and sweatshirts are a must have in your wardrobe this fall and winter! This popping red sweatshirt matches perfectly with the black joggers accented with a red and white stripe down the side. The sweatshirt is not originally cropped but this is giving me more of that 90’s Aaliyah vibe. This entire outfit is from NY&Co. For accessories, I decided to jazz this outfit with these leopard print Cole Haan slip on sneakers along with this leopard print clutch. The clutch was a bargain find at Hobby Lobby for $2!
Enjoy the first day of Fall and your weekend! Xo happy Fashion Divas.
First of all I would like to take a minute and let everyone know that my prayers and thoughts are with the islands, countries, cities that have been hit with deviation by the hurricanes and earthquakes. Whats sad is that I grew up in California and I do not fear earthquakes but just seeing the videos of what happened in mexico it literally turned my stomach! My husband and I we very fortunate that hurricane Irma was north of us so we only lost one beach day on our honeymoon. Thank you to everyone that reached out to us during that time.
Just a few weeks ago me and my husband sat beach side on the gorgeous island of St. Lucia. The amazing sites, food and the most friendliest people that this place has to offer it almost felt like paradise on earth. the Island of St. Lucia is rich with history culture and ultimately a great place to honeymoon!
Just about everyday we either took a dip in the ocean or we relaxed in one of the many pools that the Sandals Grande St. Lucia had to offer. Since this was my honeymoon I looked high and low for an affordable white bathing suit. But of course I reluctantly found one at JustFab. I love the lace detailing on this 2 piece tankini. To me I felt sexy without showing everything. It also came with adjustable/removable straps. this swimsuit comes in black or white and it’s actually still available.
