Fall In Love With Polka Dots…

0BD6A816-6177-4231-9F7A-E9F9B180CF33

Hello friends,
The weather was perfect yesterday here in Houston. When the weather cooperates, it’s the best time to pull out the cutest OTS dress I’ve purchased this year. Polka dots are so in right now, are you a fan? Mix polka dots and OTS and I’m sold. When I saw this gorgeous dress online from Charlotte Russe, I knew she was definitely going in my cart. What I didn’t know was, how much I would love the rich and bold mustard color…

The ruffle details on the dress was a bonus. I couldn’t wait to style her. I decided to keep my accessories neutral, keeping the focus on this darling number. I’m so happy brands are venturing away from the standard black and white polka dots. This dress represented me to the fullest, “Fun and Flirty.” However, I do have sad news to share, as she is sold out online, but try your local store, because you need this dress in your life. I’m linking a few polka dot dresses that I thought you would love though.

Until next time,

Gabrielle Union Inspired Look… Featuring The Five Fashionistas

C9A6E4F3-F6AA-4340-847E-64BA1D001DBB

 

Happy Tuesday Friends,

I come to you with another collaboration with my  beautiful friends. We each are sharing our styles from the new Gabrielle Union collection exclusively sold at New York and Company. I would be lying if I didn’t say this collab was awesome! Each one of these ladies holds a very special place in my heart. Let’s talk true Girl Boss… and I’m so here for it. Remember when we work together, we can’t be stopped. #alltogethernow

Well, let’s talk about what I’m wearing. When I initially saw the dress in the store, I was blown away. The only downfall would be, having to get it altered, as they didn’t have petite. So, I rushed home and ordered her online.
What more can I say, the blue and white stripes were giving me bold and sexy. I love the fit of the dress, very flattering. I knew pairing it with my red tassel earrings, and red purse was the only way to go. Red makes everything POP… To complete my look, I went with the “IT” bag of the season. It’s a dupe for the Cult Gaia bag Here.

I purchased mine Here

I’m so bummed, that this dress is sold out online, however visit your nearest New York and Company and she might be waiting for you.

Lydia, Style is always on point. She can truly wear anything and look great. The kimono and shorts were no exception. The shorts with the BOLD pink color were the perfect addition to add with the kimono. I love how she took one of the colors in the kimono, and made it all come together. Now, let’s talk about mixing prints, she nailed it! Lydia, has made me think twice about how to mix prints, as she did it so effortlessly. She completed her look with a staple black heel, and black bag. Check out more of Lydia’s look here.

I just started following Ayesha, and I asked myself where have I been. Her style is everything. Well… nonetheless I’m glad to be in such great company. She is such a sweet person, and truly believes in girl power. I look forward to getting to know her better, as we share our love for New York and Company. Jumpsuits are so in right now, and Ayesha made me want to go out and buy this one. The coral color was so vibrant! She completed her look, with the cutest espadrilles, and blue straw bag.

The Four Fashionista’s Spring Edition…

Happy Tuesday, I’m so excited about this post, because I’ve collaborated with three of my absolute favorite fashionistas. We all met on IG, and our love for Fashion brought us all together. None of us have actually met in person, but I feel a connection with them and look forward to many more collaborations with these beauties. Our theme was Spring dresses, and each lady nailed it.

Now, when I was thinking about the dress I wanted to showcase, I went with this super cute floral dress from SheIn. The dress hadn’t received any reviews yet (I was a little worried), but I knew it would be perfect for me, so I took a chance. When she arrived, I was left speechless, something that doesn’t happen often. THOSE SLEEVES THOUGH… Can you see all the details on her? So, you tell me what’s not to love! I added my black block heels, and to bring out one of the colors in the dress, I went with white tassel earrings. And to complete the look, I went with a black bag.

Mary Byrd aka Curlybyrdie

I’ve followed this beauty, almost as long as I’ve been on IG. She never disappoints with her fashions. I instantly felt a connection with her, maybe it’s our love for New York and Company, or that we both have curly in our name, but nonetheless I look forward to finally meeting her in person. Mary, is here to bring Polka dots to life… as polka dots are classic and never go out of style. And what girl doesn’t love polka dots. I especially adored the knot front on the dress, as it added a bit of sass. Mary completed her look with the cutest accessories, red sandals, gorgeous embroidered handbag and statement earrings. Looking fabulous my friend!

Lydia is the epitome of class. I fell in love with her fabulous style, and I knew we were destined to be friends. Lydia, cold shoulder maxi dress left me wanting more, as I’m obsessed with cold shoulder dresses. Now, how can you look at this dress and not have Spring vibes! The flowers on the dress brought it all together, don’t you think? I love how she kept her accessories with a neutral color. This fab find, was beyond gorgeous and most importantly screamed femininity. Looking stunning my friend!

Bold and Fabulous Floral Dress…

 

6AD98E7B-849B-4C0C-8CE6-55F98002949E

 

Hello friends,

Stopping in to share this floral print dress, as floral prints are a must have for Spring and Summer. I couldn’t wait until the weather got a bit warmer here in Houston. Because what girl doesn’t adore flowers and dresses. Put those two together, and it’s a WIN-WIN. What would have really been great if the dress had pockets, but nonetheless it was love at first sight. But, remember when choosing one, the key is to pick one that is flattering and complimentary to your body and style. For me, the bigger the flowers are the better. Now, always keep the accessories to a minimum.

I opted to not wear a necklace with this dress, as I wanted the focus to be on the dress. With so many colors in the dress, it wasn’t a hard choice when I decided to wear my red tassel earrings, and red mules. Any color earrings would have enhanced the dress, but red has been my go to color when I’m looking for a little spice. What are some of your go to colors? I finished the look with my super cute black bow bag. I had a bow thing going on… So, tell me how do you feel about flower dresses? Would you be bold enough to wear one?

Until next time,

Red and white Gingham Top…

7068BEEB-9D9D-429E-BCEF-84E24FDD05A1

Hello friends,
We need to talk! This gingham red top is a must have for Spring and Summer. Like I’ve shared in my previous post, you will see me in so much gingham print. This is one trend I am extremely excited about. What about you, is this a print you can see yourself wearing. When you think about gingham print, remember it was started in France. Now how can you deny the print now.

I purchased this top, drumroll please… from Target. I decided to pair it with my red pants. These red pants were super long, so guess what. I got the scissors and started cutting. I wasn’t finished just yet, I wanted a frayed hem look, so me and the tweezers became one. Finally, I completed the pants with sandpaper to add a little distressed look. I’m sure you can hear the excitement in my voice, when I say I was ecstatic with the outcome.

The only thing I needed now was shoes, and my bag. I completed the look with my cognac sandals, and cognac purse. I fell in love with this cognac bag, because of the shape of it. I had never ordered from this company before, but to my surprise the purse was EVERYTHING… Now this girl was ready for a fun filled day of shopping.

 

Until next time,

Gingham Palazzo Pants…

Hello friends,
Just stopping in to share my love for these super cute Gingham Palazzo Pants. Because when I think of Spring, the first thing that comes to mind is Gingham. What about you? The print is so timeless. Yeah… I know what you may be thinking, Gingham kinda reminds you of a picnic tablecloth. Well, this Spring you will see me in quite a bit of gingham. What are some of your favorite prints?

These fabulous pants are from my favorite store, New York and Company. I decided to pair the pants with a green top to add a bit of color. Now being a petite woman, I should have gotten the pants hemmed, but I was anxious to wear them. I ordered them in petite, but they were still very long. And finally, the pink bag brought the entire look together.

 

Until next time,

White Button Down Shirt…

98B8633C-9EF3-412E-9A4D-700B93FC7848

Hello friends… After a long hiatus I’m back. I’ve missed you all so much. February is the month of love, but I tell you it was not a very good month for me. Work got the best of me, and I had absolutely no time for anything else. I’m so happy that’s over, and I can get back to what I love. The connection I have with my readers, is so important to me. Well… enough of that. Just know I really appreciate you all.

Now, let’s talk about this outfit! If it’s one thing I know, every woman should have a white button down shirt. It’s a must have, as it can be styled so many ways. I decided to style mine with this super cute pair of jeans, and I loved the end result. I purchased this shirt sometime last year while shopping for my vacation clothes. This is my second time wearing it, and I have fallen in love with it again. I think it’s because of the party in the back that really sold me.

But, what about these jeans. When I saw them online, I knew I had to have them. The tulip hem gave me a 70’s vibe, and I was so here for it. Sometime being a short woman have some perks, these jeans were actually ankle length, but on me they were full length. I always run into that, and it’s okay. So, to my petite woman, the look may not be the same as it is on the mannequin, but like Tim Gunn says “make it work”.

To complete my look, I went with a black pump. This shorty, needed a lift in the height category. Added my black bag that I scored on amazon, but something was missing. I needed a bit of color to really complete my overall look, and opted for a pair of red tassel drop earrings. Now, I was ready for a day of fun. What exciting things did you do Saturday? On another note, my white button down isn’t available online, so I’m sharing a few that I know you will love.

Until next time,
