Cali Girl Turned Georgia Peach

Let’s get this straight I may love in the south but my California 619 Taco eating Mexican candy loving loves the beach but can’t swim fashionable tail will never loose her Cali swag 😆. Just had to clear that up!

Now let’s get into this sweet outfit. Ladies do you shop at Dillard’s? Dillard’s is like Nordstrom’s or an upper scale Macys. Prices are high but the clothes are amazing. If you have been following my blog, you know that I usually shop at Dillards once a year for the a,aging New Year sale. Well just a week ago they had An amazing end of the summer season sale, usually this sale is for men. I usually take my husband, which I did but this time I said let me just glance At the women’s section. And boooooooommm amazing deals and clothes to pick from.

This stunning Gianni Bini floral ruffle dress immediately caught my eye. I honestly passed over it thinking that it was unaffordable. My husband said what are you doing at least try it on. Once I had it in that was it. I couldn’t pass it up. I snag this gorgeous dress for $38 regularly $169. Now on sale for $55 which is still a bargain.

I paired this dress with a simple white clutch and these metallic baby blue mikes from JustFab. This dress doesn’t need much as it makes a stat,en ton it’s own. Now all I. Red is my girls and a tea party to attend. Here’s to a new week divas

Xoxo happy fashion.

Trending Kimono & Wide Leg Pants

Hey Divas it’s been a while. I was traveling for work and unfortunately I caught a nasty bug that put me under the weather. I’m still recovering but had to hope back on to give you all some inspiration! First off happy Monday and let’s aim to make this week count!

Just FYI you will be seeing me style these gorgeous black wide leg pants! Because I am very petite and I love to create the illusion of long legs, hip, and a booty and these pants do the trick! I picked up these beauties from TJ Maxx for only $16… now that’s a super bargain. I paired these pants with my crochet Eva Mendes tank from New York & Company. It is true I’m one of those people that gets cold very easily, so I typically carry a sweater of som sort. This longline floral kimono was the perfect match for this outfit. I picked this beauty up from Charming Charlie for $8.

This outfit is truly down me on a budget. I topped this look of with a black wide brim sun hat from H&M and my cream faux suede caged heels from JustFab. This look can be taken from day to night, or work to play. Take your pick.

Coachella Vibes

So the truth is.. I missed the Coachella 2018.. but that doesn’t mean this outfit isn’t giving me hippie, bohemian Coachella vibes! It’s friday and boy am I ready to enjoy some sun! I’m going to keep it short and simple today. I have been featuring clothes from Versona more on the blog as I used to shop there when I lived in Virginia. Versona is the same boutique as Cato Fashion. They have similar styles and great quality, I honestly like Versona a bit better.

This bell sleeve tribal print off the shoulder top is from Versona. I love the colors, the print and it’s one of those blouses that keep your snatch in at the top so you don’t feel exposed. the shorts are of course from… Old Navy! I love their shorts, as they fit me great, they last years, and they are affordable.

IMG_5445

My accessories consist of simple cognac low gladiator sandals from JustFab, this lovely round straw purse with pom poms is from Shein. Let’s just give a moment of silence to this purse.. it’s it the cutest!!! last but not least my shades are my Betsy Johnson. Is there a Coachella part 2 this year.. cause I’m ready to go lol!

The Colorful Giraffe

Hey Divas,

Random question, what is your favorite animal? Mine just so happens to be giraffes. I love how gracefully they walk, how tall they are, their wonderful spotted print and of course their bold eyes with those long eyelashes. I honestly believe that where us human got the idea of elongating mascara from!

IMG_5191

If you guessed that I was drawn to this dress because of the print. You are absolutely right. It looks like a colorful giraffe to me. I have been on the hunt for several maxi dresses and this one satisfied my fashion sweet tooth. This dress is from New York and Company the Eva Mendes line of course!

This maxi dress is great for many reason.

  • It’s long… if it wasn’t it wouldn’t be a maxi dress (duhh)
  • Very light material
  • Thin under lining,
  • Pockets
  • Awesome rope detailing around the waist and acts as straps
  • Multi color print

IMG_5208

You know my theme for this summer is in living color and this tops off this them. I will admit that this dress is extra extra long. I am 5’3 1/2 so I pulled out my 5″ JustFab purple fringe heels with this dress. I will most likely have this tailored so it’s not dragging on the floor. Topping this look off with my orange fringe purse and yellow beaded earring form JcPenny will definitely have heads turning. This dress is great for a hot summer day, week-ending, and of course a hot date. Take you pick!

Maxi Dress Dreamin

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.

IMG_5330

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!

So exciting to recognized by my favorite boutique and designer!

This entire outfit can be found at New York and Company under the Gabrielle Union Collection tab.  Chambray denim.. I used to call this knock off denim but it’s not. It’s perfect for spring and summer as it’s light, soft and will match with almost anything. I love the balloon sleeve detailing as well as the tie front. I will admit that when I first put this shirt on it fit tight and that’s only because I failed to realize that there’s a hidden zipper  on the side.. ( I must have been that excited to get it on)

This skirt is A-Mazing! it’s perforated with a gorgeous tropical multicolored take me to the jungle print lol. It comes with a light under lining just right to keep you cool in the summer.

The truth is, my mind has been going crazy with new ideas.. I just can’t control myself. I am super creative and my mind will often race from A-Z and then from Z-A.  Excuse me if my outfits have been very colorful and different.. I will not apologize for my creativity. 🙂

How to find an outfit under $50

 

Many of you know I am a thrifty shopper and I almost never buy anything at full price. This includes shoes, asseccories, clothes…. I wish I could apply this to food lol cause lord knows I love to eat.

7DD4142B-273C-4D74-A952-8B27D7ED8A61

Althought I love to thrift shop I am always not able to get to the good ones as they are a bit further out from where I live. So instead TJMaxx, Marshall’s, Burlington will do the trick… just to name a few. These stores already have discounted prices. However when shopping at department and boutique stores, I look on the clearance racks and what’s on sale and if any coupons are available.

9F24428E-2E3F-4567-A152-4BFC65E0FE67

I purchased this outfit for $50. That even includes the purse! This soft chambray off th shoulder blouse was only $12. I love how this blouse has bell sleeves the cute cut out detailing and the stone wash that is scattered through the top. The pants were $15. Actually I saw the pants first, as I have been looking for some comfortable loose fitting jeans. Let me just say these pants are more than comfortable super soft and are great for an everyday or weekend look. Both pieces are from TJMaxx.

My coral and tan stitch purse is from Rack Room Shoes a few years ago. They were having a crazy clearance sale on purses which we’re down to $5. My earrings were a gift for my birthday.

I saved the best for last. These lovely Jessica Simpson Espadrilles. The amazing patch work on the soft light blue denim. I love the cream ribbons that lace around the ankle. This finally touch simply completed this outfit. Oh yes these shoes were on clearance for $15. Check in the store as they are no longer available online.
