No joke I’m so irritated because I want my hair braided so bad, I want to rock a baiting suit 24/7 and drink pina colads, eat fresh fruit, seafood and fruit all day lol. I know random request but maybe that my #hotgirlsummer. Let’s get into this outfit

Look 1: 70’s Flashback

I just love a cute blouse that can be worn as multiple ways and this one is perfect. First up this lovely pink snake print blouse can be worn on or off the shoulder like I am here. It’s from New York & Company and it’s a very light weight material that can be easily transitioned into the fall. I paired this blouse with these high waisted flare legged Eva Mendes jeans. ladies these jeans fit me like whoa, however although they are true to size they are very long. So if your short like me either wear heels or have them altered! Since I’m not back into my heels yet i opted for these blushing pink Michael Kors tennies that I snatched from TJMaxx. Did you peep my matching little belt bag that’s also MK. that was a super find at TjMaxx as well. DOn’t forget my cute sun hat that’s from Walmart. You all know I love a good sun hat especially on these extremely hot summer days.

Look 2: Cali Vibes

I call this my cali vibes only because I am wearing pink shorts ha! Pink shorts for some reason remind me of my birth place cali. Maybe because my mom always had pink.. always talked about pink shorts or maybe just because! Anyways This year I made it a point to get me some pink shorts and these matched perfectly with my blouse. These shorts are high waisted which make them perfect for crop top and for tucking in cute tops like this. I wanted a chill look so I keep my same accessories!

It that’s simple. Remember don’t be afraid to mix and match one article of clothing you have to create different looks. This is how you achieve the look of having more than what you actually have in your closet. Trust me I have gone years with mixing and matching and I always get your closet must be huge.. do you spend your entire paycheck on clothes.. No No No, I’m just good at faking it till you make it and in my eyes I have made it.. maybe not to the tip top but I am exactly where i’m supposed to be. Okay divas until next time stay sweet!

Why Sweaters are Perfect For “Sweater Weather”

Yes divas it’s officially sweater weather. that’s right, pull out your chunky, knit, turtle neck, hi lo, and all color sweaters out of your closet! I sure am.. If you didn’t know I love sweaters…all types! I don’t discriminate. (lol) anyways, today’s blog is about sweaters.. well obviously! I love mixing a long cardigan with a good sweater.

Why A Cardigan?

Cardigans are my go to in the fall and winter! why? because they add an extra layer of warmth, style and can easily jazz up or dress down an outfit. I stay cold so have a funky layer piece always says i thought about this outfit instead of “I’m cold.” I usually flock towards long cardigans so that it makes wearing leggings, skinny cans, crop tops, or any sweater that hits right at your waist look more professional.. especially if you are int eh work place. Let’s get this right, I don’t wear crop tops to work that’s so not appropriate.

  1. V-neck
  2. Crewneck
  3. Chunky
  4. long line

Why A Sweater?

Because it keeps your warm! Thats so obvious however Sweaters can also be dressed up or down! styled with jeans, slacks, shorts, skirts you name it! I feel like I should have said greens, beans, potatoes.. you name it!! There are so many different styles that at least having the basics are necessary.

  1. V-neck sweaters are great for a business casual look, where you can easily pair a button up collard blouse underneath.
  2. Crew neck, which is also the round neck.
  3. Cowl neck sweater is for someone who like the “thought” of a turtleneck but possibly doesn’t like the “i’m being choked” feeling.
  4. Turtleneck 
  5. Mock neck
  6. Oversized, one of my favs to wear with leggings or skinny jeans.
  7. Cropped
  8. Hi Lo

All of these types of sweaters come in, slim knit, chunky, oversized, cropped, hi lo you name it there’s a sweater that will fit your style.

Now for my look! I went for an all white underneath this crazy english scene print cardigan. True story, my boss thought I was excited about thanksgiving, she thought it was turkey and cranberries on my cardigan. However it’s actually a women in a store selling fruit to a man at a counter. anyway this cardigan coat is super warm, long and has every pop of color your heart desires! I pair it with my chunky cable knit white turtleneck, a pair of skinny Michael Kors jeans and my high hell lace up booties! It’s so simple.

How do you wear your sweaters and cardigans?

xo happy fashion divas!

Some hot pieces include, long maxi shirt dresses that can be used as a dress or a disputed over jeans. Also, printed leggings, long coats, and just about anything with sequins. Let’s not for get the booties. Booties have been reinvented from heel height, colors and prints. With this being said let’s dive into these outfit details.

Who doesn’t love denim on denim with a pop of leopard print. Well that’s exactly what I did with this look. When I saw this denim button down, bow tie midi dress I had to have it.

Be A Girl Boss in Style

Many of my followers have requested I do a work wear blog. So that’s exactly what I’ll do! My question for you is… are you a girl boss? What makes you a boss, what goals have you set for yourself and how do you plan to execute your goals. Well while you think about that in order to be a boss you have to dress like one.

To be honest I have always liked classy, professional clothing the majority of my. Loathing was made up of it. I have finically mastered sizing and fit that’s perfect for me. Here’s a helpful tip try to shop at department stores even the “pricey” stores you can always find coupons, discounts and sales. I recommend this because the fit for this type of clothing will ultimately fit better than the cheaper stores. I recommend checking out New York & Company, The Loft Outlet, Express and Macys.

Let’s get into this outfit. So the mall near me just opened up a new Loft Outlet and I was so excited!! Since we are headed into fall I totally bypassed all of the sweet summer discounts…. well maybe for now. I first found these tailored straight leg off blue almost grey pants. Ladies I got these in a size 0 and they fit perfectly.

I found this matching white blouse also on clearance but offered a pop of yellow and mint green that goes great with the pants. To top this look off I found a matching cardigan. I am forever old especially in the office. I swear I need to go cardigan shopping! I paired this outfit with my teal Coach bag and white heels.

How will you be stepping into work? This outfit says hi I am here ready to work with some class.

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.

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.

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!

Denim and Headwraps

I truly am a grandma at heart. I have always been called an old soul, or the little old lady from Pasadena-that my sister calls me. But this outfit truly take me to my inner old lady. why because this is something my mom or grandma would wear. My mom isn’t an old lady but she’s a grandma so she fits into that category!

IMG_5054

This outfit is not made for old women but just embraces that old ole 70’s vibes mixed with modern flare. Eva Mendes does a great job with embracing her culture, heritage and inspirations form her loved ones. I absolutely love this denim chambray ruffle skirt. It comes with a denim belt, and lime green and purple buttons down the front. I can’t get enough of this carmel colored crochet sleeveless top. It is so light weight and just goes perfectly with this skirt.

IMG_5068

I topped this look off with my colorful head wrap from Bold looks and headwraps, a crochet side satchel and matching brown block heels.

This look is so simple and cute and can be worn anywhere.. I just may wear this to work this week :)!

I love the little button detailing on the front along with the sweetheart neckline.Now that’s a bargain.
