Easy Outfit For The Everyday Fashionista

 

Hey divas, sometimes it’s hard to get up and go and always look good. Work, life, kids, daily tasks can take a toll on us. However just because you are tired, lazy or not in the mood doesn’t mean you have to throw on sweats flip flops and a wrap.. Don’t be that lady that everyone points at and think you woke up on the wrong side of the bed. INstead give them some Sasha fierce and say “I woke up like this..”

When I am feeling lazy or in a rut I always pick my go to jumpsuit. I absolutely love jumpsuits. Why?

  1. You are all thing fab!
  2. jumpsuits can be dressed up or down depending on the style. I like to have a variety of casual, and dressy jumpsuits
  3. One stop outfit. it’s a complete look in one
  4. You are never under or over dressed for any occasion
  5. Try to find the loose fitting or the wide leg jumpsuits you will be able to be more versatile with this style. A tapered leg is fine to just be careful for what look you are going for!
  6. Helpful tip for your body type: If you are curvy, try to find jumpsuit that have a waist band, or tie. Something that will pull you in and show your figure. If you are petite like me with not many curves, I try to go for the same look, it gives me the illusion that I have something! Most jumpsuits accentuate the waist area which is awesome because most women want to create the hour glass shape!

The jumpsuit I am wearing is from Shein official. You have heard me mention this online boutique before. SOme items can be hit or miss so pay attention to sizing, and since it is an asian based boutique sizing does run small. I choose this white light weight jumpsuit, because of the beautiful lace crochet detailing on the bust area. It has a cut out band around the midriff area just giving you enough peekaboo to be sexy. this jumpsuit comes with a shorts lining underneath which is great for those hot summer days. I paired this with my eyelet white wedges from JCPenney (these are so old but look new) and an all white clutch from Charming Charlie. Outfit made simple!

Jumpsuits are so not new, more like reinvented from the past. They come in a variety of colors, prints, and styles. I recommend that everyone at least has to in their wardrobe. this is a must have spring essential.

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?

This look is giving my China Doll. I feel in love with this dress instantly. From the  bold metallic yellow the perfectly placed embroidered cranes with the dabs of orange red.. This dress give me life. I feel like it’s such a statement without it being to much. I picked this Gorgeous dress up from Dillards during the New Years sale. I paired it with my lace up red JustFab  heels along with this Green scallop purse from Charming Charlie. Try letting your clothes speak for themselves. Happy Fashion Divas!

A Hint of Yellow

Being out and about doesn’t mean you have to run around in sneakers and leggings. I wanted to give a pop of color to the grey day! My sweater has pops of yell teal and blues that are sprinkled throughout.. Unfortunately this jazzy chic sweater hails from The Limited that recently went out of business. So Sad no worries you can find sweaters that look just like this one.. I paired it with one of my favorite JustFab flared jeans. To stay warm in this minimal look I added my favorite grey faux fur leather grey Moto jacket.

To top off this look I wore my  vibrant yellow “granny” boots and a mini yellow purse. This look is fun and ket me warm on this cold grey day.. xox Happy Fashion Divas

Knee High Boots

img_1777-jpgimg_1785-jpgimg_1788-jpgimg_1789-jpgimg_1790-jpg-1img_1793-jpg-1img_1795-jpg

I am petite, thin, skinny however you want to say it, I choose to embrace the skin I am in! It’s hard for me to follow the “new” trends since my body type doesn’t fit into everything. However I have had these knee high Shoedazzle boots for 2 years now and have never worn them.. particularly because the calf part was too big for my leg.. so I made it work.. Since 2 years ago I have gained a couple pounds and I used my handy leg warms to help fill up the empty space 🙂 hey a girl has to learn how to work it!

I paired these burgundy mixed media boots with a simple skinny soho jean from New York & Company and of couple a complimentary matching Eva Mendes turtle neck. To top off this look I added a neutral with my camel pea-coat that I thrifted and my favorite plaid blanket scarf!

This outfit was simple cute and sexy all at the same time! Xox Happy Fashion Divas!

U-2-Cantu: My Wash Day Hair Products

Hey Divas,

There are a few staple hair products that every Divas needs in their closet to keep your hair looking Diva-Licious! I have natural hair so I like to use natural products. Natural hair products are products that are free of sulfates and that have organic ingredients that treat and moisturize your hair. Ladies if you have relaxed or color treated hair you can use these products as well! The products that I use come form the Cantu she Butter: for natural hair. This line also has products for relaxed and color treated hair. But be mindful those products do have sulfates which can be harmful to your hair. Below is a brief list of each products that I use on wash day!

  • Cantu Shea Butter: Sulfate-Free Cleansing cream shampoo

This product gently removes heavy buildup, leaves hair health and clean, and is made with 100% she butter.

  • Cantu Shea Butter: Sulfate-Free Hydrating Cream Conditioner

The Cantu conditioner helps retain natural oils, leaves hair moisturized and hydrated and also is made with %100 shea butter. Divas let me tell you this product is the bomb. It is great for detangling you hair, it leaves my hair very soft and shinny.

  • Cantu Argon Oil: Leave in Conditioning Repair Cream

So every diva needs a leave in conditioner and by far this is the best product I have ever used. It smells great doesn’t leave any messy build up! I have also tried the shea butter leave in, it works just as great. This leave in conditioner can also be used for twist out, braid out, wash-n-go and everyday styling. if you want a tutorial leave comment below. This product deeply moisturizes hair and helps repair dry damaged hair from over heated and formulated styled hair.

  • Cantu Shea Butter: Thermal Shield Heat Protectant

This heat protectant protects your hair up to 425F degrees. it smells great its light, not oily and is infused with she butter to soften your hair.

***You can find these products at Wal-Mart, Sally’s, Target and at your local beauty supply. Note that prices may vary. I find that Wal-Mart carries these product the cheapest but it is always sold out. Sally has recently added this product to their shelves, however if you do not see it on the shelf ask for it! They have it in the back. These product normally retails at $4-$6 depending on where it is purchased.

These products are amazing! they leave my hair smelling good, moisturized, silky and shinny. I give these products a 10+

Divas If you would like to see a tutorial on any of these products leave me a comment!

Happy Hair Divas
