Have You Ever?

IMG_4458IMG_4463IMG_4464IMG_4465IMG_4456

Have you ever felt pressure from friends, family, society or your job? Have you ever felt that you were always running someone else race and working on a timeline that was not created by you? Have you ever wondered why, who, when, what and where? Have you answered any of these questions and still felt lost?

YES! I have wondered all of this and have often felt stuck and needed to jump off this roller coaster. The truth is you have to learn yourself. Learn who you are from the inside out.. From what you like to eat, what colors, smells, you favorite, movie, time to sleep, shop, travel, read, you desires, the list goes on and on. I didn’t learn myself until i found God. God was with me all along but it took me time to grow up, learn, stumble and except somethings. I learned that everyone has to run their own race, and running that race mean that you finish line may not be until 1 day, 6 months, 1 year 15 years.. You goals aren’t determined by the person next to you.

How do you determine success? What makes you feel complete and whole? I have struggled with these questions. Success to me used to equal me being some high powered executive at a top fortune 500 company.. Just wait until you get into corporate America… your success goals just may change! However success to me today is, being able to wake up, call on God, have a roof over my head, food in my belly, an income, family and good friends..and of course being able to shop!

There will always be pressure and what I love to call noise in your life. However remember you determine what noise effects and dictates your life. You can’t live according to what someone else what’s now for you, but according to what makes you happy. Make everyday count, live for today and tomorrow because there will always be NOW!

Let’s get into this simple outfit.  This simple stripe coral button up from TJMaxx is so perfect for a almost Friday vibes look. It buttons all the way down, and it’s light weight and as cuffed sleeves.  I paired this top with a simple light denim wash jeggings from NY&Co of course. For my shoe work, these simple sling back espadrilles pulled the look together with the pop of color the flower print has to offer.

I challenge you to start cluttering the noise, pressures in your life and regain a healthy mindset.

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?

IMG_4079IMG_4081IMG_4083IMG_4078IMG_4077IMG_4082

 

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.

How do you wear your joggers?

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!

FullSizeRenderIMG_1219IMG_1236IMG_1226IMG_1214

What are you wearing for New years? Jean’s and a cute top? A long formal dress? Skirt with a lace body suit? There are endless options for news years to satisfy your fashion buds. First off let me say that this year has been crazy, exciting, emotional all wrapped up in one year! My head swimming with new ideas for 2018 and I have been trying to figure out which one to execute first! This will be my last post of 2017. thank you to my followers and even if you have stopped by to say hi and to snag some inspiration. I really appreciate you.

Among the many blessings from this year, my favorite clothing store New York and Company re-posted my photo for Black Friday. From there they granted me with any fashion bloggers wish! A $200 to purchase clothes form their store! They sent me this cute holiday card that said thank you for being a loyal customer and fashion blogger xo happy holidays (this is summed up) I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to share my entire haul with you all! So just a heads up the next posts are sponsored!

This gorgeous sparkling sequined velvet body-con mock neck dress is from NY&company. the material is has stretch to it, it is lined and will hug your curves or make the illusion of curves! This dress is perfect for the holidays as it’s just even pop and sexy all in one. Once I purchased this dress I knew exactly what shoes to pair with this dress. I hit up my bff JustFab for these gorgeous strappy velvet heels. Ladies these shoes come in a variety of colors. I opted for the wide with since pointed heels often hurt my “wide” feet. the heel height is 3 1/2 which is the perfect height for a party. This cute little cross body bag is big enough to carry everything you need for new years.

Since it’s so cold here in Georgia my two toned fur coat is the perfect match! Faux fur coats are such a hit this winter… well let’s just say they never go out of style.

So what are you wearing to bring in 2018? Happy Fashion Divas.

HAPPY NEW YEAR’s and may God continue blessing you in 2018.

Black Studs & Screen Sweatshirt

FullSizeRenderFullSizeRender_5228B5FBBE-C800-44AE-BF22-7EB8529DCCD8FullSizeRender_4FullSizeRender_3FullSizeRender_1

 

I’ve been in this graphic tee, sweatshirt mood for fall and winter.. I usually and constantly in “dress up” clothes as many people love to tell me. So I have been on a search to add chill looking pieces to my wardrobe. I found this Screen sweatshirt  that has the words “Brilliant” tagged on the front with black studs. It hits perfectly against the grey color. the selves of this sweatshirt has a balloon effect which provides great detailing to this look.

My black pants are lined with studs down the side. These jeans are more stiff not legging material.. which helps keep me a bit warmer in fall and winter. I topped this look off with my black stud and lace heels. This outfit is pretty grungy, as I think it works since we are getting more into the colder months.

It’s October! I felt the first fall air yesterday.. and you know I was not ready. This month is very significant as we honor Breast Cancer survivors and any loved ones that have passed away.  Today’s blog, I am giving you an alternative look to being a survivor! Maybe more like Destiny Child vibe!

Starting from head to toe, I found this quilted bright orange Lands End vest form my favorite upscale consignment store! It is so warm of course lined and even has a pocket on the inside. I just love orange or pink with Camouflage so I knew I would be pairing this skinny stretch camouflage pants from NY&Co. These pants are so comfortable and provide you with enough stretch move around all day in. I told you I am all about comfort these days.  I love combining prints with prints and what other great way to pairs the camo print with a screen T-sweat shirt! I found this sweatshirt years ago at Burlington to represent my Californian roots..

To complete this look I opted for these high heels timberland looking boots.. of course they are form JustFab! Ladies when I tell you this boot is so comfortable.. girl.. you see m eyes… This bootie is 4 inches but feels more like 3.. this is because they put a nice platform that creates comfort for your feet. For my accessories I wore my favorite JustFab tote bag and a pair of NY&Co shades..

Maybe you have plans for the holiday and you will be in need of a classy look.. or perhaps Church.. you can even wear this look to work! I am in love with this layered fringe dress with mesh and sparkle detailing. This dress comes from Ny&Co and it is not cheap! However theres a great sale going gone right now and you can catch this beauty for $38!

I paired this Eva Mendes dress with a pair of khaki basket weave heels. JustFab sent me this beautiful slate blue (named: Darin Satchel) bag to review. I must say it has become my new favorite bag. It is sturdy, comes with a detachable strap, very spacious and can actually fit my 15′ laptop! This sis a must have bag in your wardrobe.

Feel flirty and classy on these summer days! Happy Fashion Divas.

What do you wear on those lazy days? A good pair of jeans, relaxed off the shoulder top and some comfortable espadrilles. Yes that sounds about right! Ladies this affordable look will have you cute and comfortable for those lazy days. I paired these distressed JustFab jeans with this off the shoulder vibrant red top from NY&CO and my favorite striped emoji espadrilles from DSW.

The secret to shopping at all these boutiques is to wait for a GOOD SALE and or a coupon! did you know that DSW is always having a sale..? Did you know they always have a clearance rack with shoes on sale up to 70% off? go check it out and let me know what you find!

Be lazy and cute at the same time! xo Happy Fashion Divas.

Floral & Fringe Date Night

I like to prepare my date night looks way in advance if possible! A simple slip dress, floral and fringe will always win! This simple but elegant slip dress is from NY&CO. I am sure you could have guessed that! the straps tie as bows and the lace hem line give it the extra touch. You could wear just about any color with this dress but I chose my purple stiletto fringe suede heels… I decided to top this look off with a lavender purple clutch. Don’t worry if your colors or hues don’t match! Adding contrasting colors to any neutral color such s black and white will never clash!
