Square-Printed In Color


Birthdays seem to come faster the older you get or maybe you're too busy living to count-down like we did when we were kids. Today I turn 32...and a lot of women are afraid to tell their age like it's a huge secret but for me I'm proud of it. Every year I've survived made me the woman I am today.

I've seen many friends and family leave this Earth long before me and everyday I wake to see another day I consider it a blessing. I have had triumphs and I've had my share of tragedy but in spite of it all I made it through. I love that saying broken crayons still color. I've found that you will never know where life will take you or what to expect, but I will face everything that comes my way with a smile and a burst of color because color makes me happy.  All I want to do on this day is enjoy my Husband and my family, eat something delicious, and just have an intimate dinner with the ones I love the most.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!!!


Style-Note and Review: This dress was gifted c/o Chic and Curvy boutique. It is every bit as vibrant in person and the material is made a slinky, soft fabric that doesn't wrinkle nor does it cling to your problem areas. I love how it skim my tummy area and slims my curves. I also love the length of the sleeves for women who are not confident in baring their arms.The dress also features a split for the more daring divas that want to show some leg and for women like me that don't care to expose the leg you can adjust it so that the split is not visible. If you are short you may want to get it hemmed. I like how it falls tho. If you are tall and tired of too short maxis this would be perfect for you. I am 5'2 for reference.

The Look For Less: The Black and White Pussy-bow Blouse




I know it's still hot but Fall will be fast approaching and I'm already looking at Fall Styles. I saw this amazing pussy-bow blouse on Asos but I know some of you wouldn't be feeling 54.00 price tag.

So I decided to give you guys a more budget friendly option. 


The second option is SO similar and only a fraction of the cost at 24.90 Click Here To Purchase.

I hope you guys find this helpful. I think this top would look great with black dress pants, tucked into a pencil skirt or tucked into a skater skirt.

Until Next Time,

Off Day Denim


Lately, the struggle to keep blogging has been SO real.  It is so hot and humid in my City all I want to do is stay under the air conditioning, read, and relax. I have been keeping my Summer style easy breezy but still fashionable.

One thing I am starting to love for Summer is the color White. It's so cool looking and can go with just about anything. I love this flowy white top because it's so easy to throw on. I'm short so it's a little too long for me to wear with shorts but I paired it with my favorite denim jeans, a printed clutch, and some pointy toe blue flats. Perfect look for running around handling errands but still keeping it fashionable.

I can nver have too many statement clutches and this look is the reason way. Any basic look can be taken up a notch or two by just wearing the right accessories. I'll be back soon with more looks as I have a Birthday coming up in two weeks. Until then stay cool!!!

The Asymmetrical Peplum

One of this Summer's hottest trends is the asymmetrical peplum top. I love it because in my wardrobe the peplum is fast becoming  a work wardrobe staple for me so the cut of this peplum is more dressy for a night on the town or date-night.

This peplum top that I'm wearing c/o Chic and Curvy is now my favorite. I love the super thick scuba material it's made of. It's thick and stretchy and has a slight sheen to it. It comes in several colors but to keep from going on pink overload I decided to go with the black. I felt like I can pair with more things in the black and you guys know I am all about remixing my items to get the most wear out of them in my wardrobe.

Speaking of remixing, I decided to pull back out my leopard skirt I last wore on the blog with a pink blazer. This is my favorite leopard skirt and when I want to make a statement it's one of first things I always consider. To me, you can never go wrong with leopard print. I kept everything simple and decided to add a thin metal belt for that little something extra.

Make sure you check out Chic and Curvy if you want some head turning night on the town looks. They have a sale going on right now for 15 percent off with the code July0415. You could get this in Blue for your patriotic 4th of July looks!

One Shoulder Glam

The heat is continuing to rise and the more the temps rise, the more ways I will find to dress cool and still stay classy and stylish. At the start of Summer, I was a little hesitant to show my arms off but now it's so hot I honestly am completely over it.

I love a one shoulder top or dress so when I saw this top I knew it was perfect for me. It's made from a light material that keeps you cool, but it covers enough that you can wear it to just about any function outside of work (if you work in a strict corporate environment). The top flows so that it is forgiving to a not so flat midsection and the tie on it really defines your waist. And did I mention that my wedding colors were fuchsia and orange so the fact that these colors were in the top solidified my decision to add to cart lol.

I decided to pair it with a fitted pencil skirt so my curves didn't get lost and I kept the rest simple with some black pumps and a black clutch.  I love this top so much I have an event to attend this weekend and I will wear it again to that more than likely with a different bottom. What have you been rocking to stay cool?

ColorBlocked


Hey guys,

How are you? As you know before and awhile after Mother's Day I had been in an emotional rut. I felt like I was going through the motions with everything from work to blogging but now I am getting back to feeling like myself again. When I feel my best I tend to gravitate towards brighter colors....I guess because I'm a Summer baby the sun just makes me happy.

My Husband knew I had been feeling this way so he took a surprise day off work on this day and we both got all dressed up and painted the town. I was feeling so good when we were passing by this location, we decided to stop and shoot en route to our destination and the pictures really captured how happy I felt this day.

I shopped my closet for this look and pulled this colorblock peplum top I've had at least 4 or 5 years out and wore it tucked into this gorgeous maxi skirt. I love this skirt so much I have it in two colors and want it in one more but I think I'm just being excessive. To keep the brights theme going I wore an orange lipstick with my makeup look.

This skirt is 40 percent off today on the site so hit that link and grab you one!
