Hey divas! Can you believe that July is almost over? Thats right and one of my favorite months is coming up.. Cough Ouch August.. Why? Because it’s the month I was married. This year will make 2 years.. whoot whoot! Not only will I be celebrating my anniversary but my sister will be getting married this coming Sunday. We making magic in August. So with that being said you know i will be blogging the fun road trip form Atlanta to Virginia.. and all of the wedding madness.. you know all the good stuff.
Since it’s Monday it’s time for a little bit of Faith & Fashion.
“Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.” John 15: 20 KJV
Do you remember the day when you could stay up late, party hard and wake up early? Don’t get me wrong I’m not that old yet, however I definitely have no desire to do any of that anymore lol. SO my routine looked a little bit like this… IN COLLEGE!
- Wake up early
- eat breakfast
- go to class/or work depending on the day
- have study sessions in between classes/ or tutoring sessions on weekends
- attend praise dance practice on Wednesdays..
- THURSDAY-SUNDAY….. is now a blur ahhaha
- okay seriously thought I still had class but sometimes the party would start on Thursday’s and wouldn’t end till Sunday.. not that same party of course but there was always a party.. either a campus party. your bff’s dorm room party.. a Frat/Sorority party… you know the party that homeboy that his ex girlfriends grandmas house which is right around the corner house party.. The all white party.. the shorty short party.. okay okay you get the picture.. So what can I say I had fun. Well to be honest my sister and I and Bff were always the designated driver because we had a car so we were known as the sober girls.. lol
- Stayed up till 2 studying went to IHOP with the L7’s (a nickname for my crew back in the day)
- Monday=Do it all over again
So this horrible college routine only lasted 1 year and half.. I am proud of that cause that life is rough.. Not healthy and definitely not what my momma was supporting me for. However It didn’t take me too long to realize that there’s more to life, college, and me than this type of lifestyle. Thats when I decided to take hold of my actions and buckle down and let the noise go! Meaning the parties, the people that were toxic, and anything that was spiritually unhealthy!
When I made this ultimate shift in my life I that’s when I could see me against the world. I was no longer friends with friends I thought were my girls.. unnecessary drama broke out because I chose not to party or entertain anything less of my new morals and values. I decided to to take a stand for me and for what God had for me.. Honestly at that time I had no idea what God has for me but i knew it wasn’t this or these people.. So today I can honestly say that when you are not of the world .. the world will be against you and you will always have God standing with you. Yes I can look back and laugh on my wayward college days and nights but I look at it a testament to myself that I couldn’t have come this far without my faith and God! Often to many times we get tangled in the trends, society and what we think we should be doing.. This is clearly called being a follower. We are called to lead and be the light not to live in darkness.
My linen jumpsuit can be found at Fab’rik along with these oh so comfortable black slides. I love a cute kimono it’s perfect for summer days or to throw something over you arms if there’s a cool breeze! Kimonos can be found just about anywhere including Walmart.. yep don’t sleep on Walmart. Head on over to Fab’rik now as these items are still on sale. Are you moving forward in style this year? Today take a stand for you!

That sweet heat, summer weather is is in full swing. With the random rain storms I equate this to some like it hot! I know I do. So what is a diva to wear during weather like this? Well of course my favorite clothing store and brand has you covered! Should I even ask if you can guess who and where?
New York and Company of course! They have the perfect transiitoning pieces from spring to summer. I typically stay cold inside the office or anywhere where theres AC on full blast. This lovely knit wrap blouse and skirt are perfect. It keeps me warm enough inside and cool enough on the outside. The top knit material is heavy enough but light enough for a full breeze to tickle your skin. However don’t be mistaken its not see through! The lovely knit material dances down to the skirt and it’s fully lined.
I love how the purple and pink play with the neutral in this piece. The skirt can be found in this lovely creme or blushing pink. I opted for the cream since I can wear it with other pieces in my closet! I topped this look off with my fringe purple peep toe sandals from JustFab. UGHH I need JustFab to bring things hotties back.. I swear I want them in every color. Grab some sunnies and a cute bag and you are ready for work or play!
Guess what you’re in luck! If you shop now both pieces are on sale!

Hi Divas and Happy first Monday of June! It’s been a long while since I have kicked a blog into full swing. However I have the perfect outfit and motivation for you. So let’s dive right tin the goodies.
Let’s talk Fear, Faith and Fashion! So I was reading a devotional the other day and it was so perfect for my current situation. You can’t leave in fear without having a strong rooted faith in God. Your fears can easily overcome your daily tasks, making it hard to function mentally and physically. However this is relation to anything that we do, how? Because we must always have a healthy balance. Our lives must be balanced, whether it’s work life.. healthy food to junk food… working out to not working out..of course to no fashion to fashion.. the list goes on.
Meditate on this.. I can do all things with a balanced lifestyle and not succumbing to fear. Be balanced also means that you are powerful and can overcome anything that you set yourself too. So why not do this in style.
This lovely coral and cream outfit is from New York and Company..of course! and it’s from the Eva Mendes collection. This outfit was actually a gift for my birthday.. I know I know super late but guess what it’s still available. This lovely coral knot top is perfect, sexy and light weight for spring and summer. This stripe matching skirt gives the perfect balance with the button and bow tie back in the front or back. Eva always makes outfits super easy to put together. I paired this outfit with my gladiator zip back block heels from JustFab.
That’s all you are now fearless.. confident and have your power outfit on.. You are now ready to conquer the week!
Stay Confident and as always xo Happy Fashion Divas.

It’s Friyay, I am starting to learn not to live for Friday or the weekend but to live for each day and make it count. Life can be so much more enjoyable that way. Because I am living in color this summer I thought this super chill but colorful outfit is perfect for a Friday or weekend look.
I found this cotton grey tassel dress form Versona. Versona is a women’s boutique store that has trendy pieces, accessories, shoes, and much much more. If there is not one in your area they have an online store. Tassels and embroidery are trending right now and I couldn’t pass up this cute little number. It’s thick which is great for all seasons. I scored this dress for $24. Oh and let’s not forget it has pockets. Don’t you just love a dress with pockets? I sure do.
This piece didn’t need much jazzing up but you know me, I just had too. I used my Victoria secret tote bag as my purse along with these neon yellow booties from GoJane. To top this look off off I wore my white cat eye sunnies form Ross.
That’s it super easy and cute. What are your weekend plans?
Find this dress in stores and other cute dresses on at Versona.
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. 🙂
With that being said let’s keep this simple and sweet. You know I love a good jumpsuit, and this will not be the last one you see on my blog. Polka dots are truly trending right now so if you don’t have anything polka dot in your wardrobe please make your closet happy and snag a blouse, dress, skirt or even some shoe to jazz up your outfit.
This black and white polka dot ruffle jumpsuit is so perfect for any day. This one can easily be dressed up or down. You can go from work to play in an outfit like this. It is made of a polyester chiffon blend material, which is light and great for those hot summer days. there is no lining but you will not need one since it’s black.
I decided to had some color to this outfit with my shoes and clutch. These mixed colored kitten heels are old from JustFab. Actually this shoe was one of my first purchases and they still look knew. My clutch is from an exhibitor at one of the tradeshows I work for. I absolutely love the color swatches, so fun and cute.
How to do you mix color and prints for an easy everyday look?
