Hi Divas, what are some of your favorite summer colors? I love bright, vibrant, bold, loud colors for the summer. I mean who doesn’t? I barely wear black and when I do it has some sort of print mixed in. This year I am totally into yellow, aqua, orange, red and pink.. I may throw the whole color wheel in there in a minute!
I will be doing a series on mixing different colors together to bring together a cohesive looks. Today I am serving you yellow and aqua… lemons of course! have you all realized I have a fetish for fruit let alone lemon print clothing! I first discovered how well these colors pop together 2 years ago with my frist Eva Mendes Lemon dress.
This dress is $16 at TJMaxx. Don’t sleep on the max you will find great designer deals! This dress has a little ruffle flair that i love along with a thin lining. perfect little summer dress. My heels are old from JustFab, however they have a similar color and style online now. Use my referral code below to get a similar beauty. Oh and this lovely lemon purse.. I just had to have it.

Do you remember making fresh lemonade and setting up shop on the corner street? Ok I didn’t! However I remember picking lemons in my granny’s backyard. The only thing abut my granny’s lemons is that they were sweet. How do lemons become sweet? Well the neighboring orange tree crossbreed with the lemon tree making an lemorange or an orangemon. Whichever way you these lemons made the best lemonade. You could eat them raw and not once have to pucker your face.
This outfit giving me summer breeze on grandmas porch drinking that good ole sweet lemonade. This 2 piece outfit is from SteinMart, it is very vesatile as it comes with high waisted pants that are lined. So no peek a boos. The top can be cropped or you can pull it down to meet the pants at your waist. It’s off the shoulder with straps. This shirt is a plus because it’s bra friendly.
The red option is if you are feeling bold. I felt that this already vibrant outfit needed a contrasting color so why not red? I added this red floppy hat that is old from Walmart, my JustFab tie up heels and a red Kenneth Cole tote bag.
For the white an denim option. Now this was easy and safe. Since denim goes with just about anything, this was a no brainier to pair these basket weaved denim heels with this outfit. Toss on some darling cat eye shades and there you have it.
Two complete looks in one. Which is your favorite look?
xo Happy Fashion Divas!

Sometimes do you ever envision an outfit in your head and are apprehensive of about wearing it? Well thats exactly what I did with this outfit. I love this bow tie button cuff blouse that has grey polka dots. This blouse believe it or not is year around. I picked this beauty up from Forever 21 years ago and it still looks brand new!
I opted to pair this blouse with a grey waist tie jumpsuit that is fitted and taped on the leg from Charming Charlie. This jumpsuit comes with a waist tie however adding this corset belt makes my bust and hips look bigger than what they are! Ultimately I was not sure how this would look but it works! Because the grey an black in this outfit is muted colors I added my fringe purple lace up heels to give it a pop of color!
If you think it looks good and it works then wear it! Happy fashion Divas.
Who’s Happy it’s Friday?? Me Me me!!! I wanted to give you ladies an edgy chill look.. Okay so let’s jump right into the goodness. Starting with this fun graphic razor back tank top, I just love the softness of the crochet and the pastel colors. I paired it with a basic pair of light blue skinny jeans. To mix up this look I decided to wear these multi-color snack print heels. Added these retro pink glasses and my purple clutch purse. Mixing prints and colors is something I love to do.. Don’t be afraid to “dress” on the edge. Have a wonderful weekend xo Happy Fashion Divas.

I am so excited about this summer-hat ‘look book’ I have put together. I absolutely love the summer weather. Floppy hats are great for a day in the park, lunch date and just for jazzing up a summer look. Most hats are going to start off at $20.00, however since I am bargain shopper all of my hats were purchased under $10.00. So let’s grab a hat and add some sass to your outfit!
Citrus orange with a touch of pink
Selma Villa Sun Hat
This orange, pink and tan hat was purchased from Charming Charlie for only $4.99. The brim of this hat is stiff, but can be folded to your liking. The pink and orange is a bit of an odd combination, though it adds just enough pop to any solid outfit. I love this hat because it gives my head and shoulders good cover from the sun, but not my view of the summer fun!
Bright Stripes in White
Calvin Klein Blue & White Striped Metallic Sun Hat (Sold Out)
Ladies this hat is more of a classic fitted squared sun hat. It is perfectly tailored. There is a wire that is seamlessly inserted around the brim so that you can fold and bend the hat to your style. The royal blue can easily be mistaken for black, however the silver threading and white crisp lines at a touch of pop to this hat. I love to pair this hat with solids or other stripes to give it some flare.
Fierce Red Hat
I’m not ashamed to say it “If it’s a bargain, it’s a steal!” This fierce red hat hails from Wal-Mart! Am I serious? Indeed I am! Walmart has an assortment of summer hats and thanks to my friend Lani, she convinced me to purchase this hat. I am so glad I listened to her! This is a classic floppy hat. The brim is big and tends to flop on the sides leaving room for you to look out at the hot summer skies. The hat was purchased for only $7.99. This was a great find!
Busy Bumble Bee
If you are looking for a classy but sexy summer look, Ladies this is the look for you.
Barbados Sun Hat
So, the story behind this hat is that I had to have it!! It’s absolutely gorgeous. But I wasn’t willing to pay $20.00 for it, so I waited until it hit the clearance rack and bam there it was for $4.99. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I purchased this black and yellow stripped hat from Charming Charlie that just happened to go great with my black and white stripped skirt! This hat is a traditional floppy hat that is stiff enough to bend and fold to your liking. The yellow band adds just enough jazz to this classic hat.
Happy Hat Shopping Divas!

This shoes are absolutly stunning for the summer! Sued material, ankle cage and the up in the back, with a sling back look. If you have small ankles like me you will need to take them to a shoe repair because 2 of the front straps where way to big for my foot. The heel height is 4” which is just perfect for me. I would suggest paring this shoe with an all white sun dress or any solid color shirt and nude crop pants to show off the color and cage the up.
$39.95 (Purchased for $19.95)
Emmey! If you love a pop of color and the the up look this shoe is for you! This shoes is very comfortable and zips up in the back. Making it easy to put on and take off. It is open toe with suede material. The heel height is 4’ making it easy to walk in. This shoe is offered in Teal, Hot pink and Black. I rate this shoe a 10 for summer.
$39.95 (Purchased for $19.95)
All girls just want to have fun! And this is the shoe for it. The Cynthia shoe is great for adding pizzazz to any solid outfit! I love this shoe because it has so many different colors and you can practically wear it with anything. The material is canvas with a 4” heel height. It comes with an ankle strap that is adjustable. This shoe does fit me a little big so I would either get a size smaller or your normal size!
$29.95 ($Purchased for $9.99)
Every lady needs a black purse! So I so badly needed a black purse and I found just that! JUST FAB was having a $14.95 clothing sale and they also added a couple purses to the sale! I found this beautiful black leather wipe off tote. This bag is deep and comes with a full cross zipper and even a body strap to turn it into a satchel. It also comes with gold detailing on each corner allowing the purse to stand upright. I love when purses don’t slouch over its almost as if the purse has feet on it.
I caught these Blazers on sale for $14.95 each marked down form $44.95 each. With that being said I couldn’t resist and had to get this blazer in both colors. These are great transitioning pieces from fall to winter. They are rayon material with a faux sueded inside lining. It had a asymmetrical look that draws over the chest and comes to a point my your waist. This is a great jacket for work or even with a pair of jeans!
$44.95 (Purchased for $14.95 each)
Thats all Divas! I hope you have enjoyed this JUST FAB HAUL!
