IMG_4653IMG_4660

Many of you know that I struggled with showing my legs, or wearing a bikini. However it has taken me 32 years to dare to show my belly. I know get over yourself? Sometimes confidence comes in all forms, any showing skin wasn’t mine. However After trying this outfit on.. I didn’t look so bad after all.

Whelp it’s Friday and I am letting it..just  a bit hang out..It’s warm and it’s time to welcome that melanin glow! This 2 pieces is from TJMaxx and is giving me super bohemian vibes. I love loose fitting pants like this. One they are perfect for the air to flow through on a hot day and two they make me look like I have a booty (lol). The matching off the shoulder top is a no brainier as it’s the perfect length to almost hit the high waisted pants. I paired this look with a weaved color block purse that I found at the Goodwill for $5. Sun hat? why not I love hats, this was actually a gift form years ago. Did I tell you that I am totally loving espadrilles right now? Well I have always had a love for them, however DSW has been getting me right with these deals! These back lace tie up espadrilles and are by Nanette Lepore. They are no longer available online as they were on the clearance rack. So check your local DSW for these beauties.

Hi divas, if you have been following 2018 spring fashion trends then you would know that polka dots are a must have! Well polka dots aren’t new to the game, however this year they are truly making a statement. This post if for your budget friendly divas on a dime… like me! I never buy anything for full price and if I do I better need it in my wardrobe! Many women feel as if they can never keep up with trends or may just not have the money to constantly buy new pieces. That’s totally okay.

This outfit is straight out of my closet and is not new. My bow tie white and black polka dot blouse is from H&M years ago… got it for $4! H&M always has super steals on spring and summer blouses. My skinny ankle pants are from New York and Company a few years ago as well. NY&CO always has this style as they like to call it the Audrey ankle pant., can you tell why? These lovely polka dot shoes, however up close they are actually cheetah print heels are from JustFab. I snagged these beauties for $12 on a super sale years ago! I enjoyed playing with one print but in different colors. I encourage you to pull out pieces that are already in your closet and having fun pairing them together!

Do you experiment with prints and colors? if so how?

  2. a crop top of your choice
  3. A blouse of your choice – this can be sleeveless, off the shoulder, bell sleeve what every your fashion sense is tell you to do!
  4. Because I am short I usually wear heels with mine, however this is optional.
  5. Try sneakers for a more casual look or even a low wedge sandal.
  6. Don’t for get to add an accessory of your choice. This can be a hat, sunglasses, purse or any jewelry.

Let’s get this week started right. Bright colors always make me feel fresh and ready to conquer the day. I am totally loving this hot pink body-con dress from New York and Company. The lace detailing.. the stretch of the material and the length make a perfect match! This dress can easily be dressed up or down. I decided to dress it down and pair it with my Coach printed sneakers along with this paint swatch print clutch. The clutch was given to me by one of the vendors I work with.. If you can find other items like this let me know! Ladies have fun this week and simply express yourself!  Xo Happy Fashion Divas.

 

Bow Tie Blouse & Jumpsuit

IMG_0706IMG_0727IMG_0782IMG_0707IMG_0779.JPGIMG_0785

Sometimes do you ever envision an outfit in your head and are apprehensive of about wearing it? Well thats exactly what I did with this outfit. I love this bow tie button cuff blouse that has grey polka dots. This blouse believe it or not is year around. I picked this beauty up from Forever 21 years ago and it still looks brand new!

I opted to pair this blouse with a grey waist tie jumpsuit that is fitted and taped on the leg from Charming Charlie. This jumpsuit comes with a waist tie however adding this corset belt makes my bust and hips look bigger than what they are!  Ultimately I was not sure how this would look but it works! Because the grey an black in this outfit is muted colors I added my fringe purple lace up heels to give it a pop of color!

If you think it looks good and it works then wear it! Happy fashion Divas.
