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.

How do you style wide leg pants? Xo happy fashion divas.

Sometimes random songs pop into my head. Happy Monday top of the hour ladies.. how are you feeling? Did you have a good weekend.

Yes I am serving you another jumpsuit.. But I can express enough how easy and comfortable they are for the summer. I picked this beauty up from Shein for under $20! I love the little button detailing on the front along with the sweetheart neckline.Now that’s a bargain. I was going to keep this little number basic with a neutral pallet but decided once again to live in color.

I jazzed this mustard leaf print jumpsuit with green. Not only green but green leaf print! 2 prints in one outfit.. You know I purchased this green tassel necklace from New York and Company on clearance for $4. My bag is from Charming Charlie. I totally love the tassel and scalloped edging on the top. These gorgeous leaf print shoes… can you guess? Of course Justfab. All of my accessories are sold out but similar styles can be found.

Eva has classic pieces that are so easy to mix and match from season to season. I had so much fun collaborating with my girls are we each love Eva. We all chose different styles whether they are old or new, that is the joy of mixing and matching clothes.

For my look I chose a classic shirt dress….as if I need a another dress in my closet.. But you can’t go wrong with a simple cotton shirt dress. What I love most is that it’s lightweight, it buttons midway and has this amazing detail on the back.

I jazzed this lovely lilac shirt dress with a multi colored snake print belt and matching heels. now ladies I purchased these shoes from shoedazzle a few years ago.. there’s no way I ever imagined of finding a matching belt years later. Thanks to ebay, I found this belt for only $9!  If you are not into purple, no worries this dress comes in yellow and white.

Believe it or not when i’m not sure if something will look good on me, Yolanda always seems to me amaze me with different prints and colors. I actually was drawn to the skirt version of this dress. However Yolanda styled this dress perfectly. Sometime less is more. I love this almond colored purse and the simple purple shoes. This allows for the dress to do all the talking and Yolanda to do all the walking. Find out all the details here.

As you all know that I petite and just skinny lol.. I so wish I would look like this in Lydia’s outfit! Eva makes her clothes for all shapes and sizes. let’s just pause, Lydia made this look easy. She too also has the dreamy ruffle white off the shoulder top, which I totally love! She paired this with Eva’s yellow pencil skirt. ILydia pushed the limits of this outfit by adding a black belt with a blue and white stripe heels.. I think I may have flatlined.. Can I say stylish!!! Find out more details to Lydia’s look here.

Did yaull love I love lace and crochet? I have not blogged about this a lot, however Reyni’s look is flashing me back to my wedding. The soft green and crochet that this outfit has to offer is amazing! Eva has done it again with bringing vintage style to new heights. The soft green crop top is a perfect match for the crochet green with a pop of cream underlay. But wait….my girl had the nerve.. yes the nerve to hit this with the rose gold heels. I think I need a glass of water this outfit is so hot!! I would have never thought to pair this together, but if you look closely the green has a hint of gold in it. How awesome is that! Find out all the fab details here.

As I grow through my blog, I find myself finding more and more inspiration from these ladies.. make sure to check out all the fab details on their blog! What are some of your Eva pieces, and if you have never shopped this collection head on over to NY & Company she has a new collection out.

What Is Your Fashion Inspiration?

Sometimes we don’t realize where we find our inspiration from and other times we just follow the trends. Each year as I get older I count my blessings and realize how much I am becoming more like my mother. Not just by the way I look, but how I pair my outfits.

I am keeping it simple on today’s blog with this eyelet white maxi dress. I bought this last season from New York & Company for my honeymoon. I didn’t have the chance to wear it as it was extremely hot in St. Lucia. This maxi dress is delicately made as it has eyelet laces, crochet and comes with a lining! Awesomely made. I decided to pair this dress with my blue and white nautical stripe wedges from Justfab. Let’s not forget I love a good sun Hat. Keeping along with the fresh nautical theme this blue and white strip hat is the perfect match! Don’t like hats? throw on a cute pair of sunnies. Basket weave purses are trending right now and I just so happen to have one in blue from TJmaxx.

As I was looking through some family photos, I came across this picture of my mom in this white maxi dress. I couldn’t help but laugh because here I am in the same type of dress. Thanks mom!

Fashion Is My Voice

IMG_4218IMG_4214IMG_4216IMG_4215IMG_4217

 

Have you ever felt lost in a crowd..not noticeable almost like you are invisible? I have found that many people feel this way, I know I have. Finding your voice is one of many factors to self love.

My twin aka my mom often would say never loose your voice. Coming from a broken family household I often saw my mother’s voice being limited. I didn’t understand her words then, but I often found myself trying to fit in with the latest fashion…that never looked good on me. It wasn’t until I was in undergrad at Norfolk State University when I realized, I can’t run to the store and just buy anything.. There’s an actual science, remedy a method to this. Once I developed my own style, this is when my voice developed.

Since then my style has changed and has become more fashionable but it relates to who I am creatively. To me fashion is art! Your voice is not just the words that you speak but by the way you creatively express yourself. Once I found my voice, I feel alive, bold and I love myself just that much more.

Wicked Teal Vest & Boots

FullSizeRender_1FullSizeRender_3FullSizeRender_2IMG_3220FullSizeRender

Only a couple more hours until my weekend officially starts.. But in the meantime.. I will sit behind my desk and share with you these wicked outfit details.. I am calling this outfit wicked.. because teal is a mean color! Mean because it’s hard to find but it’s such a lovely color! Iv’e been grabbing this color off the rack every time I see it..

Ladies I love to recycle old pieces with new that’s exactly what I did here. I adore this white and black striped sweater dress from JcPenny. It’s far from new but it’s a great neutral piece that pairs well this any color. Vests are great for fall, winter and in this color was a must have. I love the quilted detailing along with the pockets and black trim that outlines the vest! It’s not to heavy nor light. It’ is insulated with a nice lining giving you that extra warmth on a breezy day. Let’s just take a moment of silence for these boots..

IMG_3224

Okay so these boots.. are of course are from JustFab. the heel height is perfect. the faux suede is great quality. very comfortable and the color.. you already know! Surprisingly.. the calf width is not extremely large for my skinny leg.
