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.

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.

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.

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.

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

How to Reach Your Goals!

IMG_0802

Hey, ya’ll! How are you? It’s so crazy that it is already JUNE! I can’t believe it, where has the time gone! I know everyone says that, but seriously, I’m failing at my yearly goals. How are you doing at your goals? Leave me a comment to let me know. We only have 6 months to get it together 😩

Here are a few of my New Years ResSome of my goals I want to achieve are:

  • Be healthier – I feel like I am doing so/so with this. I haven’t been eating pizza as much.
  • Save money- FAILING! My name is Joniamac and I’m a shopaholic.
  • Learn a foreign language – I really want to learn ASL. I use to know quite a bit when I was younger, and I want to learn how to sign.
  • Blogging goals: each month I set goals of what I want to achieve, my main goal is to blog more.

These are just a few of my goals. The next 6 months I’m going to work hard for them and for the next year.

So how are we going to achieve our goals? Here are some tips I find helpful:

  • Set Goals that MOTIVATES you! – You have got to want it. If your goals motivate you, it means it’s important to you.
  • Make sure your goals are REALISTIC. If you make goals that are impossible (so to speak) then you will feel defeated.
  • Make sure your goals are CLEAR. For example, say your goal is to learn a foreign language. It’s a good goal but it’s not clear because there are so many languages to learn and it doesn’t help you move in the direction you want to go in. Maybe you want to learn Japanese because you plan on doing an internship in Japan, or French because you plan on moving to Paris.
  • Have an ACTION PLAN– How are you going to achieve your goals. Most goals take work. Take them step by step!
  • SEE IT! Write down your goals, make it a checklist. Make sure you put it somewhere you can see it. I put my goals on my vision board, it helps me see and keep track of what I am trying to achieve (when I’m not being lazy) To help me keep up with my daily/weekly goals, I use an app called Clear. Clear is great because 1) My to-do list is on my phone. I don’t have to worry about writing it down on a sticky note and miss placing it. 2) You can create multiple organized, categorized list (whatever you want to name your list) 3) You can set a reminder for your task. 4) You can personalize the list with a theme.

  • TELL PEOPLE your goals. It can be your best friend(s), your family, someone that you have a connection with. If you tell someone your goal, you are more likely to accomplish your goals. I finally told my friends that I was going to start blogging, tell them held me accountable.
  • Have a DEADLINE- Set a time on when you want to accomplish your goal(s).
