The White Button Up

A must have closet essential is a white button up one size up to give it a "boyfriend" feel. I'm currently in love with baggy clothes paired with loafers or a pair of heels. I've also been loving things that doesn't necessarily "go together" -i.e strap back hats and heels.

Where Fitness & Fashion Collide

Gym shorts and smoking loafers? Yes! Back in 2009 I started wearing sweat pants and a pair of heels and it just worked. I think a dressed up sporty vibe can work if done properly. Here I wanted to style a pair of gym shorts with a blazer for a lazy Sunday brunch look.

Done with the right shorts and a tailored blazer this look is a piece of cake piece of pie! 

How do you feel about styling gym wear?!

Knock It Off!

There was a time where I would never wear a knock off purse -never say never right? I found myself in the store purchasing this Chanel inspired bag, making the decision that I was over it and was buying it anyway. There's tons of people who wear designer inspired clothes all the time, but the main point here is - I do what I want. Lol! 

Would you ever wear knock off?! Why?

Wishlist For Him - ASOS

Wanted to switch it up a bit and do a Wish List for him. Depending on the store the men section has a lot of cool finds. So for that special "him" whether brother, boyfriend, family member, or friend these pieces should narrow down the perfect gift.

NYX Liquid Suede -review

I've had my eye on the NYX Suede Lipsticks for a while now and I finally remembered to take a trip to my favorite beauty store -Ulta to grab a few. 

So far I have zero CONS but where do I begin with the PROS?! OK, straight to the point -long lasting (does not come off when you eat/drink), moisturizing, super pigmented, smooth finish! 

They're $6.99 at Ulta -what are you waiting for?! Go! 

What are some of your favorite NYX lipsticks?

To Mix Stripes & Leopard

I love solid colors with a print or in this case prints. I picked up this leopard print bandanna from Walmart and these printed loafers from H&M. It has been in the 90's lately so thin shorts and a sleeveless button down was perfect for a day of shopping.

What look do you go to while staying cool during the Summer?!

Currently Reading

I'm currently reading 'You Are A Badass' by Jen Sincero and so far so good. If you're stuck in a "where do I go from here?" mood this book is what you need. She is honest, raw and really does not care about your feelings (love it!). We all need that one friend that will be blatantly honest with us, tell us what we need to stop doing and what we need to start doing -Jen Sincero is that friend. In need of some straight to the point motivation? This is what you need!

What motivational books have you read?!

Black & Red

So today I went on a hunt for a smaller vlogging camera - and it was a fail! So I'm just going to go with my first thought -Sears! Today was a gloomy humid day with a bit of rain, now I love the rain but this muggy weather has to go! Just went with a crop top, trousers and a pair of converse for today's look.
