SHOP 'TIL YOU DROP - MEMORIAL DAY 2018 SALES

2ac5989a22718bde45ff091872fcd12e.jpg

Firstly, we can't forget why we celebrate Memorial Day. Yes, it is a nice long weekend for relaxing by the pool while enjoying BBQ but we should still pay our respects by saying a quick prayer for families who have lost their loved ones while serving our country. I have military in my family (none of them have lost their lives while serving - thankfully) so I have a great respect for our veterans. 

Since Summer is quickly approaching, I have been shopping so much. Lord help me....and my wallet. In my previous post I mentioned that I have been buying so many dresses, skirts and tops with tortoise buttons. Don't ask why - it just happened that way and I am in love with everything that I Have purchased/ordered. I literally had like 8 packages delivered (no exaggeration) in the past week. Not sure how I avoided my fiancè asking me what the hell I have been buying  but I finessed my way through. Hahaha. 

Take a peek below at what's been in my carts + what's on my Summer wardrobe inspirations list and take advantage of these too-good-to-pass-up sales!

MAY MOOD

MAYMOODcopy2.jpg

Thanks for stopping by again! I am back with another mood board post. It seems like a lot of you liked reading my first April Mood post so I am happy to have started this monthly series. If this is your first time reading my mood board post - I decided to create a collage of images that inspire me by my mood, style, and what I'm feeling or getting into that month.

Gosh, where did time go? How are we already almost half-way through the year? That being said, you have 7 months to figure that sh*t out. What are we waiting on? The question that we must all be real about. In real life we all have road blocks that delay us and our plans but that's okay, just as long as you keep going. We all go through different seasons at different times, and if you don't feel like your "time" is now, then it is certainly coming.  If you look at the bottom left quote in the collage, it says "A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms."  I am not going to sit around and complain about where I am, I'm just going to do me and grow along the way. With where I'm headed, I have no tolerance for negativity and I want to surround myself with like-minded individuals who are on the same page. I have come across some amazing women on Instagram who inspire each other to keep killing it! I love that. 

On another note, Houston has been having some gorgeous weather lately and we can already feel that Summer heat coming! I have started doing a little shopping for the Spring/Summer and everything that I am loving now is either linen, or has a tortoise button down detail (or both.) I recently bought two dresses, two skirts, and a top that I cannot wait to wear. Take a guess? They all have tortoise buttons. Now, I'm thinking that I need some tortoise earrings to go along with my tortoise mood. haha. I can't wait to share these new Spring looks with y'all pretty soon. My style is becoming more and more simple  and I am starting to gravitate more towards elevated basics that work well with versatility. What are you looking forward to wearing this season? Can't forget that staple basket bag! Now, you can find them in lots of different styles! Below, I linked a few of my favorite ones. Also, please check out my new "Shop" page at the top menu of my blog! This Summer style list will make you want to spend it all before your vacation.

Hey y'all! Here's the second look for my Topshop denim campaign with Stylinity. Even though I'm wearing denim, this look is still all about Spring. What's better than pairing comfortable jeans with comfortable sneakers for a comfortable look? See what I did there? If you haven't had the chance to read my first post explaining the details about the diversity of Topshop denim, you can check it out by clicking here. Also, If you love denim like I do you should be open to looking for brands that not only offer great prices for good quality, but also most importantly look for brands that have a wide variety of sizes and fits for all body types. Topshop is that brand. 

I'll be wearing these Dree Cropped Kick Flare Jeans all Summer and throughout the year. Seriously a new favorite pair of mine. If you have checked out my previous post on Topshop denim, have you tried them out? If so, what are your thoughts? Favorite pairs?

APRIL MOOD

rsz_1aprilmood.jpg

I decided to do something a little different here on the blog. I had this "idea" in mind for a monthly mood board blog post for a while now, and I am finally putting it in motion! Can we say YASSS for ideas = action? My new monthly mood board series will just consist of an array of images that reflect my mood, thoughts, feelings, and overall inspirations for that specific month. Most of these images I find on Pinterest (you should follow me on Pinterest here!and some of them might consist of my own personal photos. But mainly Pinterest because that's where I get most of my visual inspiration from. I am so pleased with how my first mood board for this month of April came out because all of the images I can relate to in some sort of way, and I made this myself in Photoshop. Just by looking at the collage, it just makes me feel....alluring. Certainly a direct reflect of my current emotions. 

Life update: My fiancè and I just relocated back to Houston from Austin so that whole process has been long and busy. It's so exciting to be back closer to family and friends! We also didn't realize how much we had (that we didn't need to take with us) until it was time to pack up and move. With having some time off from work, that gave me the chance to donate a bunch of clothing and things to Goodwill and start fresh. I have also been using my time off to focus my time and energy on wedding planning, spending time with my parents, my two dogs, exercising, figuring out money moves with Des (ha) and lots of self care. April has been great so far, and we're already almost half way through it. I also just picked up Gary Vee's new book Crushing It because I've heard so many good things about it! He's a pretty smart and tenacious guy who knows what the hell he's talking about. So I'd definitely take his advice. New month, new goals. Happy April, friends!

Denim has always been one of my main my go-to wardrobe pieces for any type of occasion. Yep, I love to wear denim when I want to be casual/comfortable, and even when I want to wear a dressy top with denim. You just can't go wrong with denim jeans! I don't know about you all, but when I find a really good pair of jeans that I love, I literally hold on to them for years. I still wear a pair of jeans that I got about 7 years ago. Not all jeans will last a long time though. You have to find the right fit, and the right quality - if you care. I recently got rid of a few pairs of old jeans because lately, I've been investing in higher quality pairs. Thanking myself now. On another note - I've always had an issue with finding the perfect fit because of my small waist and slightly curvy lil' bum. Thanks, Mom! But I love it. So when Topshop x Stylinity reached out for a denim collaboration, I was super excited because not only was it was right up my alley, but it was time to try out a different brand for denim that I hadn't tried before. 

Have any of you ever worn Topshop denim? I am now in love. First of all; COST. For as nice as the quality is, Topshop denim is affordable for everyone! Starting at $65+, and with a wide range of fits you can find your perfect pair for sure. Sizes start from 24-36 with options for petite, regular, tall, and maternity. One for all! Literally. Personally, I love a high-waist fit with a cropped ankle. In this first look - my denim style is the MOTO Indigo Clean Rinse Straight. I got them with a longer length just so I can have the option to roll the ankle or wear them longer for a looser fit look. Considering trying Topshop denim? I'd say that you wouldn't be disappointed! If you have a pair of Topshop denim already, what are your favorite fits? I think my next pair that I plan on purchasing will be the Jamie!

Ahhhhh, LA. Y'all probably know by now that it's by favorite place to be. I was there a few weeks ago only for a couple of days after we drove from Las Vegas celebrating Des' birthday weekend. I know I have been sort of M.I.A. but I am moving! Forgive me. You know how busy and stressful moving can be so it has been tying me up along with daily work. (I'm trying to stop making excuses but sheeeesh) it's been hectic! But anyway, hope you guys are well! We only spent 3 days in LA but we certainly made the most of it while we could! Visited with my high school friend Yvette, shopped around the Grove around a bit, strolled Abbot Kinney Blvd, Melrose, Venice Beach, and ate....a lot. New favorite healthy lunch spot - The Butcher's Daughter Venice. They have a spicy kale caesar salad that is off the chaaaaiiiin. Of course I had to squeeze in some time to take a few photos of my outfits that I wore while there. In LA we always walk a lot so I've learned my lesson by bringing comfortable shoes for almost everyday. The weather is just about perfect, so I opted for this gingham dress from Lulu's and paired it with these Gazelle Adidas for a sporty look. It can be kind of chilly during the day so I had a denim jacket on hand when I needed it. What pieces are you looking forward to wearing for Spring/Summer? I'm looking forward to wearing more sneakers with casual-chic outfits!

Happy Monday, y'all! With Valentine's Day being only a couple days away, I guess I'm considering this a "last minute" post for all of your last minute ideas. Wait....I just realized that every time there's a holiday (that we need to shop for) I always always always create a "last minute" post. I promise I'm not always late with everything. Hahaha. I do a lot of things better under pressure and I know that I'm not the only one! Just being realistic. I don't always shop for birthday/Christmas/Valentine's Day gifts months and weeks ahead, I shop the week before..maybe the week of..or a couple days before. *slaps forehead* If you're reading this, you're probably a last minute shopper too (or just reading the blog & I thank you!) so don't worry, I got you.

Although Valentine's Day is not a holiday that I go crazy about, I do still buy a little something for my parents (some sort of couple's thing) and my man. This year, we aren't planning much. I'll be working that day so I'm sure it will be a nice night in with my favorite bottle of Prosecco and I ain't mad at that. Des' birthday is also next week (Lord I still have to buy him a birthday gift) and we will be going on a little fun quick trip so I'm okay with laying low this week/weekend. IF - and that's a strong if we do something for Valentine's Day, I plan on wearing this Tularosa dress because it's so comfortable, casual, yet flirty, which would be perfect for a date night out. And it's on major sale!!!! What are your plans for Valentine's Day? Do you and your significant other normally go all out or just Netflix and chill? If you're still looking for outfit ideas, look no further! You might be cutting it close for ordering + on time delivery but some places have reasonable overnight options, or you can just get your inspiration ideas here and go find them in store. Do your thing, girl!

WHY YOU NEED A LEOPARD COAT NOW

lcoat.JPG

Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe that January is finally over? It seems like I'm not the only one who felt like January took his sweet ol' time. It was the lonnnnnnnngest month everrrrr. Exaggeration much needed there.  I got a lot of things done, and I have a lot of exciting things coming up! Just a random thought: I am so thankful for life. If you are breathing you should be too. Life is too short to take for granted and could be taken away at any moment. So love those around you. 

Okay, about this leopard coat. When I tell you I have been on the hunt for a leopard coat for a YEAR now, I'm not kidding. So, I tried to find a good one that I loved last year, but I never found the right one. Either the print was not too cute, too shiny, or sold out. Story of my life right. Every year, Zara comes out with a leopard coat and they sell out within a few weeks and then you can't find it anywhere. The good thing is, leopard coats never ever ever go out of style! So you can buy one when Winter is over (most likely on sale) and then save it for the following year. Recently this past Fall, I ordered two leopard coats that I had to return because I didn't like the type of leopard print. Does that make sense? I wanted one so bad so I just waited it out until I found another one that I loved. Once again, Zara came out with another one this year which didn't last very long and I got it! I got lucky because it was the last one in store, on SALE. Major score.

So here's why you need a leopard coat in your life: 

A.  Leopard coats can make just about any outfit come alive. You don't have to just wear matchy matchy black outfits. (I did because that's what I wanted to wear that day haha) You can wear different prints like stripes, or graphic print t-shirts for a more casual but well put-together look. 

B.  Again, leopard coats never go out of style. As I mentioned before - they were pretty popular around last year, the year before, and now. Depending on where you live, you can rock a faux fur coat a couple times throughout the year (unless you live in Texas like me.) I just love how versatile you can get with a leopard coat.
