Rule The World in the New Gab Union Collection

Hey divas is your wardrobe fall ready? Yes, no, maybe. Well if you are looking to elevate your wardrobe this fall and winter the Gabrielle Union Collection exclusively at New York & Company is a great starting point.

I’m kicking it off with this royal blue and black knit striped dress. Ladies let me first off by saying the quality is amazing and so is the fit. This dress will definitely hug every curve on your body.

I love dresses like this as they are easy and always make you look like you put effort into your outfit. I decided to pair this dress with pops of color such as red and white. I added these red vibrant earrings, red shades and a color block chevron print bag. My shoes are old from JustFab but are such a classic as they give the stripe effect to my feet!!!

Be A Girl Boss in Style

Many of my followers have requested I do a work wear blog. So that’s exactly what I’ll do! My question for you is… are you a girl boss? What makes you a boss, what goals have you set for yourself and how do you plan to execute your goals. Well while you think about that in order to be a boss you have to dress like one.

To be honest I have always liked classy, professional clothing the majority of my. Loathing was made up of it. I have finically mastered sizing and fit that’s perfect for me. Here’s a helpful tip try to shop at department stores even the “pricey” stores you can always find coupons, discounts and sales. I recommend this because the fit for this type of clothing will ultimately fit better than the cheaper stores. I recommend checking out New York & Company, The Loft Outlet, Express and Macys.

Let’s get into this outfit. So the mall near me just opened up a new Loft Outlet and I was so excited!! Since we are headed into fall I totally bypassed all of the sweet summer discounts…. well maybe for now. I first found these tailored straight leg off blue almost grey pants. Ladies I got these in a size 0 and they fit perfectly.

I found this matching white blouse also on clearance but offered a pop of yellow and mint green that goes great with the pants. To top this look off I found a matching cardigan. I am forever old especially in the office. I swear I need to go cardigan shopping! I paired this outfit with my teal Coach bag and white heels.

How will you be stepping into work? This outfit says hi I am here ready to work with some class.

Cali Girl Turned Georgia Peach

Let’s get this straight I may love in the south but my California 619 Taco eating Mexican candy loving loves the beach but can’t swim fashionable tail will never loose her Cali swag 😆. Just had to clear that up!

Now let’s get into this sweet outfit. Ladies do you shop at Dillard’s? Dillard’s is like Nordstrom’s or an upper scale Macys. Prices are high but the clothes are amazing. If you have been following my blog, you know that I usually shop at Dillards once a year for the a,aging New Year sale. Well just a week ago they had An amazing end of the summer season sale, usually this sale is for men. I usually take my husband, which I did but this time I said let me just glance At the women’s section. And boooooooommm amazing deals and clothes to pick from.

This stunning Gianni Bini floral ruffle dress immediately caught my eye. I honestly passed over it thinking that it was unaffordable. My husband said what are you doing at least try it on. Once I had it in that was it. I couldn’t pass it up. I snag this gorgeous dress for $38 regularly $169. Now on sale for $55 which is still a bargain.

I paired this dress with a simple white clutch and these metallic baby blue mikes from JustFab. This dress doesn’t need much as it makes a stat,en ton it’s own. Now all I. Red is my girls and a tea party to attend. Here’s to a new week divas

Xoxo happy fashion.

Trending Kimono & Wide Leg Pants

Hey Divas it’s been a while. I was traveling for work and unfortunately I caught a nasty bug that put me under the weather. I’m still recovering but had to hope back on to give you all some inspiration! First off happy Monday and let’s aim to make this week count!

Just FYI you will be seeing me style these gorgeous black wide leg pants! Because I am very petite and I love to create the illusion of long legs, hip, and a booty and these pants do the trick! I picked up these beauties from TJ Maxx for only $16… now that’s a super bargain. I paired these pants with my crochet Eva Mendes tank from New York & Company. It is true I’m one of those people that gets cold very easily, so I typically carry a sweater of som sort. This longline floral kimono was the perfect match for this outfit. I picked this beauty up from Charming Charlie for $8.

This outfit is truly down me on a budget. I topped this look of with a black wide brim sun hat from H&M and my cream faux suede caged heels from JustFab. This look can be taken from day to night, or work to play. Take your pick.

How do you style wide leg pants? Xo happy fashion divas.

Blush Pink and Stripes!

We all draw inspiration from somewhere or someone. I remember growing up getting my first job at Seaworld with one of my best friends and earning our very first paycheck! We were so excited and all we could think about was going shopping! That’s exactly what we did. My mom took us to the San Ysidro Outlet is San Diego, CA. We shopped at Papaya the Nike outlet, Forever 21 and a few other stores. I saw this because we were totally bestie to the point we bought matching outfits. I am going to try my hardest to find some pictures of us matching! okay So I couldn’t find it.. Vanessa if you got it send it over lol!!

Today I don’t find myself matching with any women but gaining inspiration from my blogger sisters. Today I took some classy and fashionable inspo from my blogger sister Danni Howard the Modern.Day.Classic. She’s super fun, has a great classy style but makes it modern for the everyday women! I totally love it and her.

With that being said dive into this classic look.

I love stripes, from pants, jackets, blouses purses. Stripes can add pop to a classic look or make you look bold and edgy! In this case. I found these crop wide leg split ankle paperbag pants… (whew that was a lot) from TJMAXX. These light weight pants serve for a blend between going to work and or a weekend vibe. I paired these pants with a simple chiffon tank blouse also from TJMAXX for only $7.99!

Keeping this look simple and classy, I chose to pair this outfit with complimentary blush pink block heels. My odd shape shiny pink bag is a perfect match. Both heels and purse are from Justfab.

I’m in love with this look and if I had pink espadrilles I would have wore them just like Danni did!Let me know if you style an outfit like this or how would you style your stripe pants?

I’m going to keep it short and simple today. I have been featuring clothes from Versona more on the blog as I used to shop there when I lived in Virginia.

Option 2: Hot pink always looks good with black and white.  Since we are living in color this summer why not go bright and bold.

How to find an outfit under $50

 

Many of you know I am a thrifty shopper and I almost never buy anything at full price. This includes shoes, asseccories, clothes…. I wish I could apply this to food lol cause lord knows I love to eat.

7DD4142B-273C-4D74-A952-8B27D7ED8A61

Althought I love to thrift shop I am always not able to get to the good ones as they are a bit further out from where I live. So instead TJMaxx, Marshall’s, Burlington will do the trick… just to name a few. These stores already have discounted prices. However when shopping at department and boutique stores, I look on the clearance racks and what’s on sale and if any coupons are available.

9F24428E-2E3F-4567-A152-4BFC65E0FE67

I purchased this outfit for $50. That even includes the purse! This soft chambray off th shoulder blouse was only $12. I love how this blouse has bell sleeves the cute cut out detailing and the stone wash that is scattered through the top. The pants were $15. Actually I saw the pants first, as I have been looking for some comfortable loose fitting jeans. Let me just say these pants are more than comfortable super soft and are great for an everyday or weekend look. Both pieces are from TJMaxx.
