I have been on the hunt for summer maxi dresses. Lately I haven’t seen any that I truly fell in love with. However you know my girl Eva Mendes (collection) – from New York and Company always comes through! Every since I did my closet clear out I only have a few maxi dresses in my wardrobe. Adding this beauty was a must.
Maxi dresses are like jumpsuits to me! Super classy easy outfit all in an instant. you can easily dress them up or down once again depending on the material. This dress is super light weight and I encourage you to wear a slip or shorts underneath as it’s a bit see-thru. There wasn’t much for me to add to this dress as it speaks for itself.
I topped this look off with these dazzling blue beaded earrings from JCPenney, my purple fringe heels and bam. Sexy and cool outfit!

Yes it’s true I have a jumpsuit, dress, 2 piece polka dot outfit the only thing i’m missing now is a black and white polka dot skirt.. Ha I just might go and snag one. Today how would you style this two piece outfit from New York and Company. I have 2 options, however the options are endless!
Option 1: Red, black and white is always a classic look especially with polka dots! I simply paired my red Justfab lace up wedges along with this Kenneth Cole statement bag. Simple easy classic look. You can wear this to work, out on a date or simply out with the girls.
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. I pulled the hot pink from the shoes I am wearing exclusively from Justfab. I love 2 tone shoes that offer pops of color and prints. I thought this was a perfect match with this outfit.
What I love most about this 2 piece outfit is that you can always pair the top with a different pair of bottoms or the bottoms with a different top. you honestly can obtain so many great looks with this one outfit.

I’m every women it’s all in you!!!! I am giving you true girl power on today’s blog! I am truly honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with 4 beautiful women. We all came together as the “Fab 5 Fashionistas” to style different pieces from the Gabrielle Union collection exclusively at New York & Company. We truly are representing Gab Unions theme: #ALLTOGETHERNOW. Each of us have very unique backgrounds stories of how and why we became fashion bloggers. This couldn’t be more fitting to share I and how each of styled a piece form this line. So let’s get right into it.
My outfit selection is very special as today is my 32nd Birthday! Whoot Whoot so happy and thankful to God for allowing me to see another year. I chose the puckering pink jumpsuit. As I’m such a girly girl and can’t stay away from pink. This jumpsuit looks like a 2 piece as it gives a high waisted pant look with the functional buttons down the middle. Wide leg culottes are trending right now and are a must have for this spring and summer! I decided to keep this cool and simple as I paired it with one of my favorite Sam Edleman espadrilles from DSW. All of the vibrant colors make this outfit just pop even more. Staying along with this easy look I chose my blue straw side satchel and my white sunnies from Ross. Bam outfit made easy!

Divas I have been asked so many times if I prefer heels or flats. Honestly I prefer comfort. I secretly have feet problem and hate to be in pain.. Don’t get me wrong I have a plethora of heels but when it comes to looking good I make sure I have extra cushioning, a block heel or flats. Although I love to get into my stellitoes I make sure I have a change of shoes to still be fashionable!
In today’s look I am giving you 1 outfit with 2 different pairs of shoes, same color and style just different heel heights. This outfit is super chill, comfortable and oh so cute! Kimonos are a spring and summer must have. As these can make any simple outfit look chic. I love long kimonos over a pair of jeans, jumpsuits or crop pants. I opted for this simple red orange blouse. Both of these tops are form Ross and snagged both for only $8.99! wow what a bargain.
I am new but old to this rip jean trend, as my mom had bought me a pair when I was a teenager and I was afraid of looking 18 again.. Which is not a bad thing but I am forever being told I look under age.. Yes I still get carded till this day. Anyways these jeans are form New York and Company and they are actually on sale. They are great jean material and offer a nice stretch to them. I love the distressing on these as off an edgy look tho this outfit.
Now for my accessories, This simple cream purse is from H&M snagged this last year for only $4.99 on clearance. I chose these fuchsia heels with fringe to elevate this look. However if you are more into comfort you can have the same look with the sandal version. I found both of these from JustFab last season. JustFab has been great with offering a shoe is different styles. Below I have similar products to achieve this look.

What physical trait most defines you? That’s an odd question! I ask this because, being skinny, my long hair and my big ears is what has always defined me. Till this day people can’t believe that my hair is real. To every skinny joke under the sun to being deemed Dumbo for my ears.
However My hair, skinny frame and big ears are actually my best traits! Society wants you to believe that having big boobs, thick hips and a booty will make you feel more like a women. So not true! God gave me exactly what I needed. Lord only knows what women I would be if I had all the other things I just listed. My hair can go form curly to straight.. my small frame allows me to even shop in the kids section (winning) and my ears.. I chalk that up Ms. Tyra banks and calling them FIERCE!
This outfit has me feeling like I am dancing in the sunshine back in the 70’s. From the off the shoulder white blouse, boyfriend painted semi cuffed rips jeans. I added these knotted yellow espadrille wedges to decorate my feet and a simple yellow and pink tulip scarf to ask a headband.
I love simple outfits that look so well put together. How do you embrace your most hated physical traits? Have you grown to love them?

“I have learned that as long as I hold fast to my beliefs and values – and follow my own moral compass – then the only expectations I need to live up to are my own.”
– Michelle Obama.
I am holding onto my beliefs in God, morals, values and my goals. It has been a struggle to push myself to do more. Not that I am not doing enough but I have always been someone with multiple projects going or jobs. Now as a married women I am finding that things are changing.. for the good 🙂 I have ideas that I really would like to explore I just need to take that leap and become that true “Girl Boss” I already am!
This outfit is an representation of me right now. Solid green jumpsuit with a matching green tassel necklace. Shows my strength and stability on the outside. The shoes are funky in print which has always been the inner me. I added the black and white to show the contrast of my ideas form being bright to dark of where I need to step into the light and jump into my dreams and ideas!

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.
What’s on your outfit agenda this week?

Come through Spring! It is heating up here in Georgia. Although it’s a nasty rainy Monday.. it’s heating up to the upper 60’s.. This weekend was gorgeous as I was able to pull out some of my spring wardrobe to share with you all.
You all know I love Eva Mendes collection! I actually purchased this shirt a while ago when I met her! Yes I totally met her.. how awesome is that! This screen-T is so fun and cute.. it even features fun sparkles on the lip print and even her beauty mark. I decided to pair this shirt with some good old Joggers.. however these have a flower print and skinny ankle. These joggers are made for spring and summer as they are a light satin material, but not shinny. I topped this look off with my ultra red lace up heels form JustFab and the coordinating Eva Mendes tote! Did I forget to mention all items can be found at NY & Company ? Bam this is a easy look.

I know I know it’s been so long.. but the weather here in Georgia has been crap and every time I try to get a good photo shoot it gets rained out. I have several transitional spring inspired outfits that will be on the blog.
First up is this lovely hot pink floral, Carmen Miranda inspired outfit. Yes it’s all that! First these pants are A-mazing, if you are short like me you will have to get these pants hymned. NY & Company usually offers their wide leg in petite but not these, which is totally fine. However the floral print on these pants are piping hot and lets not forget the corset detailing on the front. I paired these pants with a hot pink ruffle top. I wanted something basic for the top and for the bottom. My shoes are of course Justfab and ladies these heels are high not going to lie but I needed a high heel to accentuate these wide leg pants. Roaring in hot pink with it’s 3 straps and a zipper back, these heels will the perfect match. I decided to throw in my yellow purse and a light pink head wrap to pull out some of the other colors in the pants. Ladies this outfit is perfect for spring and transitioning into spring. You can easily throw on a light jacket and will be ready to conquer the day!
How are you transitioning into spring?
