Boho Chic

Happy Monday Divas! it’s time for some Fish in Fashion motivation for this Monday! I am so tickled right now as I told one of my best friends that I was doing a Boho inspired look for the blog.. the response was what’s boho? Of course I was talking to a man so I had to not be so judgmental. Well If you didn’t know what boho is.. keep on reading!

img_1721

Today’s motivation strictly is coming form when I was little girl and I had..well my mom had sold all this candy and gift wrap for a school fundraiser. Do yaull remember those fundraisers? and the more you sell you can get those cool neon light up glasses.. some random bike, a walkman or a off brand gameboy.. Okay okay so the prizes were cool and my mom made it a point to try to get me the coolest thing on the list.. a “Camera” well after weeks of selling gift wrap and candy my sells totaled up for me to win the camera.

img_1717

It was finally the day when we would receive everything that was purchased so we could distribute the items to the buyer and for me to receive all fo my prizes. My grandmother Momma Doris picked me up from.. cough cough elementary school and i was so excited to get to her house and start playing with my new camera.. So bottom line the camera was not in my bag.. My momma Doris called the school.. called the company who as supposed to distribute the camera.. and she called the school again.. everyone kept saying I didn’t sell enough.. My Momma Doris was no push over and if yawl know anything about a black grandmother they will get to the bottom of any issue! Thats exactly what she did. Meanwhile I was to busy crying my eyes out and I’ll never forget so looked at me.. well she snatched me up looked at em dead in my eyes and said stop that crying.. Don’t you ever cry over anything or anyone of this magnitude in life”

img_1722

Long story short I ended up getting my camera and to this day.. If I have ever cried it was behind closed doors. I’ve been through a lot and it’s only been by the grace of God and those words my grandmother spoke to me as a kid that I have been able to overcome many obstacles. Small or little obstacles come in many different ways. Take this with you today, don’t cry over the smaller stuff there’s always a bigger reward in the end.

Have you ever heard of the 70’s? Coachella..Hippie..free spirited or what I like to say earthy.. Erykah Badu look. Boho is a sale that is looks fitting.. earth tones- with pops of color, peasant like wear, florals to modest prints, lots of embroidery pretty much throwback!

img_1763

Okay let’s get into this outfit! This Boho 100% cotton dress is from Fab’rik. Yes lately I’ve been loving their stuff. Super cute and chic. This dress is perfect for the hot summer days. Why? because it’s light weight with a small lining underneath, long enough to not get a sun-burn.. and yesssss black people do get sun-burns lol.. Anyways, I paired this lovely long maxi dress with some simple gladiator sandals and this basket earth tone sun hat. My belt bag comes from JustFab and I thought the yellow would be the perfect match for this outfit.. hello whoever brought back the fannie pack definitely knew to bring it back with style!

Happy Monday’s love remember don’t let the small things get you down! Stay in the fight and always push forward!

Two 4th of July Outfits

It’s that time of year when family, friends, cookouts and pool parties take place. Let’s not forget legs and cute outfits come out! Today on the blog I’m getting right to it we are talking about 2 cute outfits to wear this 4th of July.

img_1754

Flashback honestly I have always shared the 4th with my family. Enjoy the day off with good food. What do yaull typically do? I guess planning something never sparked an interest as it would look like this…. stuck in an amusement park line wearing out my cute outfit. Stuck in traffic with the ac blasting and eating Bojangles… or being uncomfortable because it’s so hot and so many people everywhere. However if I were to truly plan something of course it would be detailed with a bunch of food, water, legs and cute outfits and of course my husband lol.

img_1730

Encouraging Blazer

Okay okay enough with the plans. First outfit up is this darling super cute, sexy semi professional look. This encouragement blazer from New York & Company will sure to get the heads turning. The blazer spread positivity throughout with words such as: Queen, Love, Courage, All we need is Love. This is so awesome since the world that we live in today can be so negative.

img_1752

I paired this blazer with a pair of 6 inch high waisted flare shorts in red! I can’t remember the last time I bought a pair of shorts this length as anything to long will make me look extra skinny. However these are just right. It to short and not to long. I wore a simple collard chiffon white blouse underneath. This blouse is super old and can be found just about anywhere. I topped this look off with my simple red tie up wedges, tassel earrings and red sunnies.

img_1749

Tye Dye & Sneakers

will have the millennials saying yasss! I’m not even sure if I fit into that category and I’m such an old soul with some spunk. Anyways my momma would probably have a fit seeing me wear sneakers with this gorgeous tye dye maxi dress that’s from Fab’rik. This dress looks better in than off. It’s super light weight no lining but not see through. It ties around the neck and cinch in at the waist. What’s truly gorgeous is the overall tye print of this dress. Have you ever seen ugly tye dye? Well I have…

img_1746

Can we talk about these sneakers…. so as we know crazy fun sneakers have made the come back with a twist. Unfortunately I can’t afford $100 pair of sneakers or maybe I just won’t pay that much lol. Yeah the last time I did that was back when I purchased a pair of light blue timberlands this was like in the year 2000. Anyways. I got these colorful sneakers from ShoeDazzle as. A matter of fact they are 50% off right now! Pairing this fun outfit with my strawberry purse and highlighter pink sunnies did the trick!

img_1729

It’s just as simple as that. So what are you outfit plans and day plans for the 4th? Be safe and have fun. Xo happy Fashion Divas.

Wrapped In Summer Knit

That sweet heat, summer weather is is in full swing. With the random rain storms I equate this to some like it hot! I know I do. So what is a diva to wear during weather like this? Well of course my favorite clothing store and brand has you covered! Should I even ask if you can guess who and where?

img_1372

New York and Company of course! They have the perfect transiitoning pieces from spring to summer. I typically stay cold inside the office or anywhere where theres AC on full blast. This lovely knit wrap blouse and skirt are perfect. It keeps me warm enough inside and cool enough on the outside. The top knit material is heavy enough but light enough for a full breeze to tickle your skin. However don’t be mistaken its not see through! The lovely knit material dances down to the skirt and it’s fully lined.

img_1369

I love how the purple and pink play with the neutral in this piece. The skirt can be found in this lovely creme or blushing pink. I opted for the cream since I can wear it with other pieces in my closet! I topped this look off with my fringe purple peep toe sandals from JustFab. UGHH I need JustFab to bring things hotties back.. I swear I want them in every color. Grab some sunnies and a cute bag and you are ready for work or play!

img_1370

Guess what you’re in luck! If you shop now both pieces are on sale!

Xo Happy Fashion Divas.

June In Bloom

Hi Divas and Happy first Monday of June! It’s been a long while since I have kicked a blog into full swing. However I have the perfect outfit and motivation for you. So let’s dive right tin the goodies.

img_1479

Let’s talk Fear, Faith and Fashion! So I was reading a devotional the other day and it was so perfect for my current situation. You can’t leave in fear without having a strong rooted faith in God.  Your fears can easily overcome your daily tasks, making it hard to function mentally and physically. However this is relation to anything that we do, how? Because we must always have a healthy balance. Our lives must be balanced, whether it’s work life.. healthy food to junk food… working out to not working out..of course to no fashion to fashion.. the list goes on.

img_1481

Meditate on this.. I can do all things with a balanced lifestyle and not succumbing to fear. Be balanced also means that you are powerful and can overcome anything that you set yourself too. So why not do this in style.

This lovely coral and cream outfit is from New York and Company..of course! and it’s from the Eva Mendes collection. This outfit was actually a gift for my birthday.. I know I know super late but guess what it’s still available. This lovely coral knot top is perfect, sexy and light weight for spring and summer. This stripe matching skirt gives the perfect balance with the button and bow tie back in the front or back. Eva always makes outfits super easy to put together. I paired this outfit with my gladiator zip back block heels from JustFab.

img_1475

That’s all you are now fearless.. confident and have your power outfit on.. You are now ready to conquer the week!

Stay Confident and as always xo Happy Fashion Divas.

Holiday Gift Ideas with Versona

Hey   Divas are you done Christmas shopping? Well I sure am. I like to get it done out of the way. So Now all I am doing is finishing up wrapping all the goodies. But for you last minute shoppers I have some cute ideas that affordable from Versona. I have featured Versona on the blog before however they sent me a gift card to snag some goodies to share with you lovely ladies. If you haven’t been to a Versona near you, you must go they have everything a fashionista can dream of, including accessories and great gifts, such a mugs, coin purses, socks, jewelry, scarfs, notebooks and more.

 

If you know me I love sweaters! and sweaters are the perfect gift for anyone. Currently sweaters are on sale at just about every store. However this lovely stripe sweater  is on sale for only $22. This sweater has quarter length sleeves and it s lightweight knit material. This is perfect for layer under a thick coat like I have paired with it. Theres s o many colors in this sweater that I chose to pair a shearling grey moto jacket, my favorite NY&CO jeans and my Justfab shearling boots. I topped this look off with a cable knit hat from hobby lobby. Thats right hobby lobby even has accessories. Don’t sleep on it.

 

 

Next up Knitted hats! Thats right I go no where without a knitted hat! My ears are sensitive to the cold air, and I often get ear aches which can be super painful. So I tend to always have my ears covered in the winter.. Which to means equals cute head wear! So I was immediately drawn to these super cute metallic knitted hats. let’s be a real when was the first and last time you saw metallic knitted hats? mm never, nada, no lol at least I haven’t.. So I had to snag these and this cute colorful blue knotted knitted hat. Accessories like this make great gift ideas! don’t you think so?

 

 

 

My final purchases consisted of these lovely leather burgundy paper bag high waisted pants. whew what a tongue twister. These beauties are on sale for only $14! Say what yes only $14. These can only be found in store but I have left a link to an alternative style to pair with this look. I paired these pants with a fitted pink sweater and topped it off with this loop ling line vest. Ladies this vest is brand new so find it in stores! But wait I didn’t  stop there I figured the copper knitted hat would at a pop so I decided that my metallic rose gold oxfords would complete this look!

 

 

 

All of these items can be found online or in store.. Add these items to your holiday wish list or start giving from Versona!

Voyage ATL – Featuring Emanee’s Closet 

Why Sweaters are Perfect For “Sweater Weather”

Yes divas it’s officially sweater weather. that’s right, pull out your chunky, knit, turtle neck, hi lo, and all color sweaters out of your closet! I sure am.. If you didn’t know I love sweaters…all types! I don’t discriminate. (lol) anyways, today’s blog is about sweaters.. well obviously! I love mixing a long cardigan with a good sweater.

Why A Cardigan?

Cardigans are my go to in the fall and winter! why? because they add an extra layer of warmth, style and can easily jazz up or dress down an outfit. I stay cold so have a funky layer piece always says i thought about this outfit instead of “I’m cold.” I usually flock towards long cardigans so that it makes wearing leggings, skinny cans, crop tops, or any sweater that hits right at your waist look more professional.. especially if you are int eh work place. Let’s get this right, I don’t wear crop tops to work that’s so not appropriate.

  1. V-neck
  2. Crewneck
  3. Chunky
  4. long line

Why A Sweater?

Because it keeps your warm! Thats so obvious however Sweaters can also be dressed up or down! styled with jeans, slacks, shorts, skirts you name it! I feel like I should have said greens, beans, potatoes.. you name it!! There are so many different styles that at least having the basics are necessary.

  1. V-neck sweaters are great for a business casual look, where you can easily pair a button up collard blouse underneath.
  2. Crew neck, which is also the round neck.
  3. Cowl neck sweater is for someone who like the “thought” of a turtleneck but possibly doesn’t like the “i’m being choked” feeling.
  4. Turtleneck 
  5. Mock neck
  6. Oversized, one of my favs to wear with leggings or skinny jeans.
  7. Cropped
  8. Hi Lo

All of these types of sweaters come in, slim knit, chunky, oversized, cropped, hi lo you name it there’s a sweater that will fit your style.

Now for my look! I went for an all white underneath this crazy english scene print cardigan. True story, my boss thought I was excited about thanksgiving, she thought it was turkey and cranberries on my cardigan. However it’s actually a women in a store selling fruit to a man at a counter. anyway this cardigan coat is super warm, long and has every pop of color your heart desires! I pair it with my chunky cable knit white turtleneck, a pair of skinny Michael Kors jeans and my high hell lace up booties! It’s so simple.

How do you wear your sweaters and cardigans?

My First Pair of Dear John Denim Jeans

Hey divas I am so excited about todays blog! First off happy Monday and we are one step closer to Thanksgiving. Get ready because I am gearing up some great blog and gift ideas for you this holiday season. So make sure you check back for all those details. Kicking off my holiday gift guide I thought this would be the perfect gift for any diva.

I have had the opportunity to partner with Dear John Denim to bring you an exclusive look of a pair of their amazing jeans. Let me ask you this..Is your booty happy? Does your jeans make you look fierce. Do your jeans make a statement? If not I have the perfect pair of jeans for you!

So let’s get this straight I maybe skinny but that doesn’t mean everything fits me let alone looks good on me. When Dear John reached out to me, I was excited but then a little apprehensive to even try a pair. Not because their jeans don’t look amazing but I was not sure which size to choose. I ended up choosing the Maverick in a size 24. Maverick is a dark wash skinny jean. Ladies let me tell you these jeans have super stretch and they are long. What i mean by long they don’t stop directly at the ankle. I long longer jeans especially int eh winter. Great for stuffing in your boots and keeping your ankles warm! The denim, fit style and wash are great and they also enhanced my little bum bum..

Dear John offers a variety of jeans from skinny to flare, straight, girlfriend and crop. Take you pick I promise you won’t be disappointed. Dear John Denim has officially been added to my gift guide list! Make sure your booty is happy this holiday season!

I have you 2 looks in one just by switching out my cardigan and jacket. My geometric print cardigan is from Shein. It’s thick and the perfect topper that can be dressed up or down. I wanted to show these jeans off and match of course with my pearl theme so I applied this dark blue pearl jacket also from Shein. I thought my grey pearl sweater would break up all this blue perfectly. This sweater is old from Jcpenny but still int eh good fight! I will leave a link below to a similar look. Let’s not forget my peal beret! I have been feening over berets as you know and this one will definitely be making it’s appearance a lot this winter. My oldie but newly worn boots are from Justfab!

Finding Success In All Things.

Today’s motivational Monday topic is about success I promised I would talk about this subject. Success! How do you measure success? There are so many ways to feel, think, believe that you are successful. Below are a few important key factors in being successful

The truth is success is not determined about the materialistic things you have or what you have gained. It more about being content and at peace at where you are in your current situations. You see we all want the glamorous life, the big house, fancy car, money flowing out the bank, pretty much unlimited resources.

Let’s try to flip that, instead of wanting but instead being grateful for you do have and know that success is. It determined by riches or even how fast you obtain those things. We all are running our own race all at different speeds and times. What God has for you is for you. If it doesn’t come right away that doesn’t means its not coming. Be patient and keep on pushing forward. We are all successful in our own ways.

Now for these sweet outfit details. This lace bell sleeve blouse is from versona off the clearance rack. I paired it with this floral skirt from the loft. I decided to keep my foot or, basic with these knee high taupe boots from JcPenny. This is a perfect day to night or work wear look. Simply but classy.

Make this week count divas. Xo happy fashion.
