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!!!

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?

Spring and summer are all about being colorful. With this outfit I know I mastered just that. I love mixing colors, prints and textures. It allows my creativity to be free and unique.

IMG_4763IMG_4764

With this outfit I went all in with the colors. Here are a few helpful tips to achieve a multicolor outfit with a print.

  1. Choose either a shirt, skirt, pants or shorts with a bold and big print. weather it’s on top or bottom that doesn’t make a difference
  2. Pick a sold color shirt or bottom or a complimentary print that is either small or large in size.
  3. When this i done correctly your print and solid or print on print should even out. Where one does not look heavy on the top or bottom.
  4. As far as my accessories, I chose one of the colors from the skirt, and chose an opposite color for my shoes.

This skirt offers a bold multi-colored abstract print, that I absolutely adore. Only $13 from Shein official, I couldn’t help myself but to snag it. Please note that this skirt comes in one size fit all I am very small and petite and it fit me just right. however it does have an elastic stretch band in the back.  The fringe in my purse provides the texture and my shoes provide simplicity. This outfit is super easy and I love the slogan Yas Curl! why? because my curls are popping. Check out hello tee for fun sayings that support natural hair and black culture.

Hey Divas how is your week going thus far? I can’t complain, however I am so not in the right mindset with my wedding being 24 days away.. So forgive me if my blogs are short, sweet or even delayed 🙂

As you all know I love color and prints and I just could not pass up this tribal print sheath dress. The mixture of geometric shapes and the different vibrant colors just scream… Yes! To give this outfit a more rugged look I opted for my open lace booties and this basket weave purse.. Since this dress does not hug the little” shape I do have I went ahead and added a belt to give it a shape. Don’t be afraid to take a leap with your fashion!

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.

This jacquard tribal print jumpsuit from TJMaxx is perfect for a weekend look. I love the sweetheart neckline, with the straps and of course it has pockets!! I paired this look with a black straw sun hat hauls from H&M. To top this look off I decided to bedazzle the foot work with these lace up tribal inspired sandals… can you guess from where..JustFab!

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!

Floral Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits have truly came back into style for the past few years now.. and I am so loving this trend! Floral print as we know is a must this season and why not rock it on a culotte jumpsuit! Let’s not forget I picked this beauty up from T.J.Maxx, I just love a good bargain.

I am a sucker for good materials and this one is made out of chiffon and comes with a shorts lining underneath. It is light enough to feel a cool breeze on a hot summer day. I would wear this look to work or even out for a drink with the girls!

I decided to pair this look with my favorite yellow JustFab pumps and my yellow Charming Charlie bag. Are you summer work ready?

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!
