Summer Trend: Lace Top

IMG_1076

Lace is such a huge trend for this Summer. When it comes to lace, you can either be daring by wearing lace items see through or you can be a bit more conservative. The most popular way I’ve been seeing is wearing a lace top or dress with a t-shirt underneath. When I saw this top, I fell in love with it and had to buy it. My favorite part about this lace tank top is, it came with the white cami tee but it’s not attached to each other, it’s two separate pieces.

IMG_1079

You can wear this lace combo in so many ways. With ripped crop jeans, black jeans, high waisted shorts, a maxi skirt.

This top is currently on clearance for $13.99. It comes in either Black/White and White/Gray in sizes XXS-XXL. If you’re interested in purchasing this cute top, click here.

From Kids Sizing to Adult Styling

If you don’t know, I am 4’10 on a good and weigh about 90 pounds, depending on what I eat and if I have been exercising. Because I am so petite I tend to buy a lot of my clothing from the kid’s section. I usually shop in Dillards or JC Pennys. If you haven’t been shopping in the children’s section, oh my has it changed since I was a kid. Children’s clothing is very fashionable now.

I purchased these dress within the past couple of years. When it comes to making kid’s size clothing more “adult” and stylish it all comes down to accessories. Whether it’s a belt, highly suggestion because children’s clothing tends to be straight and shapeless. Jewelry – a statement necklace or earrings, a nice watch, and Sunglasses. A hat if you choose to wear one, your purse and the shoes you choose to wear makes all the difference as well.

The first outfit, this is where the belt came in. The belt helps shape the dress and me. I went for a leopard belt to add some fun and separation of the dress. I also decided to carry my medium size snake print cross body bag to add character. I went for nude heels to complete the look, they make me look taller and are neutral with the bright orange dress and printed accessories.

IMG_1007IMG_1009IMG_1005

The Second outfit, again I added a belt to give me body. I this belt came with the dress. Since the belt is brown, I paired brown/tan accessories with the dress. That where the hat, sunglasses, and sandals come in. I decided on these wedge sandals instead of heels because of the chevron print. I feel like this is an outfit you would wear if you plan on being outside for a long period of time.

IMG_1012IMG_1017IMG_1019

The third outfit, I use to wear to work all the time. Even though the dress is color, you can still make it work/corporate appropriated.  I threw on with my blazer and pumps to give the dress a more professional look.

IMG_1023IMG_1026

The fourth outfit, I decided to keep it young and playful by adding sandals. I think this blue crossbody bag goes well with this peachy pink dress.

IMG_1031IMG_1027

 

Do you still shop in the children’s department as an adult? How would you wear these dresses?

Pants Life: What I Wear to Work

I work part time at an Art Museum and its freezing in there. So unfortunately for me, I have to dress warm even though it feels like 95 degrees outside. I typically wear pants 1) to keep warm and 2) I wait to the last minute to get ready and I need a quick and easy outfit.

So all of the pants are from Old Navy Petite besides the Olive pair. I ordered them back in November during all the holiday sales. These pants are not only chic but comfortable. These pants are versatile, you can dress them up or go for a casual look, you can wear flats or heels with them as well.

IMG_0686IMG_0703

IMG_0726

IMG_0750

The first outfit are these Relaxed Mid-Rise Harper Trousers in Black Leopard and a maroon sweater and lace-up flats. The leopard print and maroon pair well together. This outfit is for those casual days in the office or for those days when you are on your feet.

These flats are on clearance for $12 from American Eagle. These are all sold out in petite but, are still available in maternity. Click here if interested.

IMG_0670IMG_0693IMG_0678IMG_0682

The second outfit is more professional. I wore this to a luncheon meeting. The outfit still has the black and white professional element, but the polka dots in the pants and the red lace up heels adds vibrancy and fun to it.

IMG_0706IMG_0705

IMG_0717

IMG_0709

The third outfit is bold and by far my favorite. I put two of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer together and made it work appropriate (depending on your dress code). The material on the yellow pants was not what I expected. They are a bit thick and heavy, but once you have them on, you won’t notice.

IMG_0723IMG_0737

IMG_0740IMG_0727

IMG_0738

If the yellow on yellow is too much for you, but you still want to play with color, I paired this Who What Wear Target top with dark olive green high waisted pants. The yellow in the top pops more with the dark pants. If you’re not up for wearing heels at work, I’ve worn sandal with this outfit during an outside event. Flats will work as well.

April Bless Box Unboxing

I don’t want to be a negative Nancy, but April’s box was a huge disappointment for me. I was truly excited about one product. It’s not that the products aren’t great, it’s just that some of the products, I know I’m not going to use and other products I’ve gotten before. The boxes are starting to get a little repetitive. Also, shipping for this box was awful. I hate waiting on shipping! And paying for shipping, to be honest. I know there is a process, but I feel like it shouldn’t take that long for packages to ship. Anyways, I got my shipping confirmation on the 22nd and I didn’t receive my box until the 29th. I mean, what’s the point of it being April’s box, if we are getting it in May? To top it off, my Colourpop eyeshadow was shattered 😩😭😭 I think I was expected to be blown away and I just wasn’t. I know they are still new and trying to work out the kinks, but they should let customers know when there is a problem or a delay. With the delayed box, I was expected to be blown away and I just wasn’t.

Colours of World! ​

IMG_0634

“Colours of the world (Spice up your life) Every boy and girl (Spice up your life) People of the world (Spice up your life) Aaahh!!!” Spice Up Your Life is my favorite Spice Girl song! Spice Girls is one of my favorite girl groups EVER! When thinking of the Spice Girls, it reminds me of S Club 7. (Ain’t no party like a, S Club party!) Does anyone remember them?

When I heard Victoria Beckham was coming out with a line at Target, I was excited. She has such great style and designs. The Victoria Beckham for Target collection has some great pieces. I originally wanted this pattern in the skirt set but it was sold out. I wish I would have brought more items from this collection when I purchased this romper, the items that I really want are sold out.

I really love this Retro Floral Romper. I like the vibrant bold pattern and colors. I’m glad it has a tie waist and belt to match. However, because of my height and size, the romper is a little big and make me look straight. So I pull the bottom up to make the top more flow, to give my body some shape.

IMG_0642

IMG_0640IMG_0652

You can dress this romper up with a blazer and heels or dress it down with sandals or sneakers.  You can also play with color in your accessories with this romper like I did. But make sure its minimum accessories otherwise, your outfit would be too busy. Fashion blogger Color Me Courtney paired her romper with orange heels. Check out her Instagram account here.

The VB for Target Retro Floral Romper is on sale for $21. Click the photo above for the link.

Which is your favorite Spice Girl song? Do you remember the Spice Girl movie? Did you purchase anything from the VB for Target collection? Leave me a comment below.

IMG_0615

    IMG_0622
  • Bonus- Coupon codes

IMG_0609IMG_0610IMG_0611

March Bless Box is estimated $200+

I have used every makeup/skin product in this box beside the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. I’ve been blessed to have great skin, which means I’m the worst when it comes to using skincare. I only use skincare products when I need it. I am working on getting better at this. Anyways, I’ve been using everything else nonstop! The Kopari Coconut Body Glow, I use on my face under my foundation for that EXTRA DEWY GLOW. I love how my makeup looks when I use this. The Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid is so great for that subtle glow for a natural makeup look. The only negative for me is that when applying it with my fingers (which is suggested) my foundation is rubbing off. So I’m going to try using a brush next time.

Have you tried the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence? If you have, let me know how you use it? Do you use alone or with other products?

Pop of Color

IMG_0551

Hey y’all! How was your Easter weekend?!

When I first saw this AEO Ahh-mazingly Soft Boyfriend Shirt, I fell in love with it. However, I didn’t buy it because I didn’t want to spend $45 on a shirt, that I was just going to wrap around my waist. Not sure why I never wear my plaid shirts as a shirt (unless I get cold) but I should try wearing them more often. Anyways, when I saw the shirt on clearance, it was mine! When they named it Ahh-mazingly Soft, they were not joking, it’s so soft. I love the colors, it makes it perfect to take your outfit from blah to fun and colorful. This boyfriend shirt is great is for spring.

IMG_0570IMG_0558 IMG_0548

These cute Flatforms are from payless. They are a little bit too big for me but they are in my correct size and the smallest size, a 5. They do hurt the back of my heel but other than that, the shoes are comfortable. These also come in a Silver Metallic. I really wanted these but my size is sold out.

IMG_0559If you are interested in these cute shoes, click the photo above for the link.

Keep it Casual

IMG_0517

Hey guys!! Omg, I can’t believe it’s already April! Where has the time gone? April is an exciting month because my birthday is soon. Who else’s birthday is in April?! Happy birthday!

IMG_0529

This outfit is very casual. I would wear this running errands, somewhere that I would do a lot of walking such as Downtown Disney, going to the movies or dinner. I tend to wear jeans all the time. Even when it’s 90 degrees outside, I will still have on jeans. A way to make your casual outfit “pop” is to wear a bright or colorful tee. Adding a cool jacket will also bring style to your outfit. This could be a leather jacket, bomber jacket, or a denim jacket.

Have a great weekend!

February​ Bless Box Unboxing

February’s Bless Box them is (drumroll…) the month of LOVE. Shocking, right? In the box, Sazan chose items to make us look and feel our best. And I have to agree.

Now to the good stuff, here is what came in the Bless Box:

 IMG_0489

  • Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides $25 – If you were wondering like me, what are collagen peptides. “Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is a key constituent of all connective tissues. Collagen provides the infrastructure of the musculoskeletal system, essential for mobility. Peptides are short-chain amino acids naturally derived from collagen protein.” Benefits of Collagen Peptides are: it promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails; increase skin’s hydration; helps keep your bones healthy and strong; helps healthy digestion. This was just a few of the benefits of using this protein. The Collagen Peptide is unflavored. You can use this protein in hot or cold beverages such as water or almond milk. I’ve been wanting to try a protein powder in my smoothies. I’m interested to see if it adds a taste or chalkiness to my smoothie, and for the results of the benefits.

IMG_0427

  • Tone It Up: My Perfect Fit Protein Sample $3 – Tone It Up uses ingredients that are plant-based, non-GMO, kosher, gluten free, dairy free, organic and vegan.Tone It Up Protein’s motto is designed for women, by women. My Perfect Fit has 3 different flavors; the flavor I have is vanilla and it has 15g in protein and it’s 100 calories. They recommended adding the protein to smoothies, almond milk or water. You can cook with it as well. Again, I’m going to try this in my smoothie.  I can’t wait to try this.

IMG_0435IMG_0438

  • Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter $10 – The body butter is made with Shea butter and coconut oil making it super hydrating.

IMG_0431

  • Amika Nourishing Mask $12- Is a deep conditioner and repair for all hair types. Free of parabens, sulfates and artificial colors. The directions say you can use it as a weekly treatment or an everyday conditioner. Benefits of using the Nourishing Mask is the results of long lasting shine, softness, hair growth, strengthens from the inside out, elasticity and manageability.

IMG_0464

  • Amika Haute Mess Texture Gel $10- Amika Haute Mess Texture Gel is for all hair types to texturize, volumize, and hold the hair with a dry finish.The gel uses Obliphica Oil, Grapefruit, and Honey that helps create your look, as well as, add benefits to your hair. Some of the benefits from the ingredients are nutrients, healthier hair, moisture, and softness. This is free of artificial colors, parabens, sodium chloride, and sulfates.

IMG_0478

  • Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray $10- Protects, texturizes, volumizes, repairs, and adds body to any hair type for that flawless blowout. Use the spray before blow drying to get extra texture and lift while adding a weightless layer of heat protection. This is free of sulfates and sodium chloride. Also, is safe for color-treated, Brazilian-treated and Keratin-treated hair. So are the other two products.

IMG_0475

  • BLESS Love-Inspired Cards $15 – These Be BLESSED are a special collection of greeting cards, created by Bless Box. The cards are intended to grab the love for ourselves and the people who are most important in our lives. I’m not the type person to send out birthday or Christmas cards, so I’m not sure if I will use these. I may try something out of the box but I wouldn’t even know who to send these to.

IMG_0445

  • Noonday Collection Sofiya Wrap Bracelet $30 – Noonday Collection is a socially responsible business that uses fashion to create significant opportunities around the world. They partner with talented artisan entrepreneurs to help make a difference, in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities that have problems such as poverty, gender violence, human trafficking and HIV/AIDS. Noonday collection currently partners with 29 artisan businesses in 12 countries around the world.

This wrap bracelet is gorgeous and you can layer it with other bracelets. This Sofiya Wrap Bracelet is a beautiful gold and blush bracelet that was made in India.

IMG_0442

  • Alexis Ren x ColourPop Blotted Lip: Deja Vu  $5- This is a deep rosy pink to me but the Colourpop describes it as a pink nude. Deja Vu is a sheer matte finish, that gives you a blotted lipstick look (sheer) but you can build up the pigment. If you’re not sure who Alexis Ren is, she is an Instagram model.

IMG_0452

  •  Alexis Ren x ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip: Bare Necessities $6- Is a peachy pink nude. It reminds of a liquid lipstick but with a satin finish.

IMG_0455

  • Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara $8.49- The Colossal Big Shot Mascara gives you fully loaded volume in one coat. 8 out of 10 people saw root to tip volume instantly. The Big Shot brush features unique, wavy bristles that cradle the lashes, while the collagen formula delivers bold volume. It comes in 3 shades: Very Black, Blackest Black, and Brownish Black. I can’t wait to try this!

IMG_0471

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Maybelline 24k Palette $11.99- The 24k Palette has 12 beautiful shades, being able to create 13 looks. I like that Maybelline created Quads, Trios, and Duos looks for us to recreate or inspire a great makeup look.

IMG_0474

IMG_0486

  • Coupon Codes- We received 2 coupon codes in this box. The first one is 15% off of any $35 purchase from Amika and then 20% off from Vital Proteins.

IMG_0449

February’s Bless Box is estimated over $120.

When I opened the box I was very excited about it, especially compared to last January’s box. This box has so many great products. As I mentioned, I’ve been wanting to try a protein powder, I’m just scared I will spend a lot of money on one and not like it. So I’m glad that this box not only came with one but two protein powders to try. I can’t wait to try them and see if there will be any results.

If you read my last Bless Box unboxing, I mentioned how I don’t venture or use much hair products. I ended up giving the last hair products to 2 of my friends. I probably won’t use the hair products, but I may keep these just for the beautiful packaging. But maybe I can convince myself to try them.

I’m glad that Sazan chose to put in the Noonday Collection bracelet. Not only is their jewelry gorgeous but it has a wonderful meaning and does good in the world. To empower women and help people who are in need is something I find important. Now that I know about this company, I will be purchasing items from them.

I’m ecstatic about the Maybelline products! I’ve heard great things from beauty gurus about the Big Shot Mascara. I  really hope it lives up to its hype, seeing recently I am wearing mascara more. The Alexis Ren x ColourPop Deja Vu Blotted Lipstick gives a natural look to the lips. This is great for the days I don’t want a dark lip. For the Alexis Ren x ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Bare Necessities, it swatches beautifully on the skin but when it came to applying it on my lips, it was a no. The color looks very pale.

If you are interested in any of the products, click the photo for the link(s). Do you have any good smoothie recipes? Which of these products would you like to try?

2. Khaki tones – I like the olive and dark green color. The great thing about khaki tones is that you can pair it with pretty much any other color. Plus khaki and olive green look really good on so many skin tones. These looks are great inspiration for work outfits or casual wear.

3. All Yellow-head to toe, banana. I use to wear color all the time in my high school days and early 20s. I’m not sure what happened but I feel like I never wear color that much anymore. With color being in the Spring Runways, I was in love. My goal is to wear more color (bright colors).

4. All Blue- I’m blue da ba dee da ba daa. This trend is about wearing different shades of blue in your outfit. Or you can wear the same shade of blue in different textures like Zendaya did for her Seventeen Magazine photo shoot. Looking at the other trends for Spring, you will see lots of blue.

5. Bra Top- I’m excited that crop top/bra tops are still trendy. When it’s a 100 degrees outside during the summer and humid, sometimes less clothing is best. But with this trend, you can wear a bra top in many ways. By its self, over a tee shirt, a baggy jacket over it, a sheer top over.

6. Ruffles- To me, ruffles say a great time💃🏾. But it’s also a soft, feminine romantic look. You’re going to see a lot of ruffles in tops; ruffles in the shoulder area, particular one shoulder tops and on the sleeves of the arm(s). You will also see the ruffle trend in asymmetrical dresses and voluminous skirts.

7. Neon- Standout and be bright. If neon scares you, you can add a little bit to your outfit. For example, add a pop of neon to your all black outfit.

8. Single Shoulder Cutout– whether its a single cutout or you pull your shirt to the side for that cool asymmetric look.

9. Patchwork- For sure, we will be seeing this trend on everything such as denim jeans and shorts, denim jackets, bomber jackets, accessories like purses and tote bags. This is just a few examples. What’s cool about patchwork is that you can buy a look or create your own. With the patchwork is about mixing vintage fabrics and mixing prints and fabrics.

10. Flatforms- a way to make you taller without the heels! AHHHHHH. So basically, Flatforms are platforms heels with a flat sole. You can get flatforms in sandals or sneaker style and pretty much in every color. Depending on what style you are looking for you can find them from Public Desire, Urban Outfitters, Asos, even payless (which mine should be in the mail!)

11. PINK- Pink is a big trend this year. Whether it’s a baby bubble gum pink, pastel pink,  bright pink or a dark pink. Your look can be head to toe pink or you can pair it with red, blue, yellow, orange, purple, brown, white, or black.

12. All denim/ Unique denim- All denim, All day. Denim that is different and “untraditional” whether its jeans, jackets, dresses, skirts, tops.

13. Flower Girl-Floral was all over the runways for Spring. You can wear a floral top, skirt, pants, shorts, a maxi dress, blazer, trench coat with a solid piece or head to toe floral, or a two piece. You can also mix and match the floral patterns, as long as they are in the size as floral or color tones. On the runway there were so many different looks, you can do a soft romantic floral pattern, bold, colorful, or for a retro inspired look.

14. Athletic Wear- The cool thing about wearing athletic wear is one you look like you are “fit” or at least you think that you do lol. Think Adidas tracksuit or Juicy Couture sweats. You can wear the track pants and jacket together or dress up the track pants with a button down top. Target has theses really cute track pants, I bought them but I forgot that I’m 4’10 (on a good day) and they were too big and too long.

15. Graphic Tee- graphic tees are always fun. You don’t have to do the normal band tee. I’ve seen some great graphic tees from forever 21 where they are ripped or have the lace tie up. I seen many bloggers at NYFW wear graphic tees with a powerful/inspiring/political message on it. Think graphic tees with an edge to your outfit.

16. White out- all white, oversized dress shirt, flowy, sheer, romantic look. You can complete the look with white, nude, or black shoes or go for a shoe with pop of color such as red, teal, or pink.

17. Sheer- Sheer can be “scandalous”, I mean it’s see through. But its beautiful and can be worn in a classy way, especially sheer lace. You can layer with a bra top, shorts, a leather jacket or if you’re feeling bold, go topless. It’s your prerogative girlfriend!
