Go For A Rainbow Bright Top

This top is giving me total 90’s vibes.  So, I continued the trend with my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans and these sharp block heels from Aldo.  A simple way to add color to your wardrobe is to try a splash of vibrant color with one piece of clothing.  Keep the rest of your wardrobe neutral.

Wear A Brightly Colored Blazer

I am a huge fan of blazers because they add instant polish to a casual ensemble.  They’re perfect for the workday as well as nighttime shenanigans!  Most stick to black, grey, navy, or some other neutral color.  But for the summer, I decided to add a brightly colored blazer to my wardrobe.  Yellow is one of my favorite summer colors and I feel that it looks good against most skin tones. This one can be worn over anything because it’s a solid color.  So, you better believe that I will be rocking this one all summer long.

Step Out In A Bright Skirt

If you really want to make an impactful statement this summer, choose a bold and vibrant skirt!!!   I am in love with this beautiful, flowy skirt from New York & Company!  The multicolored stripes make for such a brilliant complement to my simple black top and it adds intensity to an otherwise basic outfit.

What are some ways that you add color to your wardrobe during the summer months?

A few weeks ago while doing my usual Target run, I saw this cute jumpsuit and decided to purchase it (without trying it on).  I had no clue how it would fit, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got home and put it on!  It looked amazing!!!

In a shade of earthy olive, this tie-waist jumpsuit gives me the perfect palette to create personalized looks. As you can see, I paired it with my simple black accessories.  However, I can’t wait to wear it with a cute pair of sandals or wedges.  It’s super versatile and it makes for an on-trend look with its wide leg detail and utility silhouette.  From casual days in the office to hanging out with friends, I could see myself styling this statement piece again and again!  Have you purchase any cute jumpsuits or rompers for the summer?  Let me know in the comments below!!!

The Perfect Summer Dress from Target

When I first spotted this dress, I thought “Meghan Markle”! I remember her wearing a very similar dress earlier this year, and she looked amazing as usual! Now if y’all don’t know, I’ve recently become obsessed with The Dutchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s style; So I’m sure you can guess that I snatched this dress right on up when I saw it, and I haven’t looked back since!

B92DE03B-9A56-4CFA-8439-4E974C7F3A9C8F11AB78-824D-4F43-A07F-9FE719212305

Even though this dress is definitely a dupe of the one that Meghan Markle wore, it’s way more affordable!  I purchased it at Target for $33!  In case you didn’t know, I am a huge fan of Target’s clothing collections, and I’m an even bigger fan of the Who What Wear™ Collection available at Target.  I love that their pieces are trendy, yet classic staples.  And the prices are right where I need them to be.

Another thing that I love about the Who What Wear Collection is that they cater to all body shapes and sizes.  Their size range is very inclusive and their pieces are universally flattering!  You can’t beat that.

Aside from Meghan Markle, I’ve seen others rock a similar version of this dress all season long!  And I can tell you why; it’s because it is a sleek and polished dress that still offers comfortable wear. Plus the cascading statement buttons are a huge trend right now.  Also, the vertical stripes elongates your body for a slimmed down look!!!

9B1C58AC-F87D-4742-A489-82A492FBC842

Today, I paired the dress with my favorite black block heels from Target.  I think these heels make the look more fun and dressy.  And I’m still in love with this little bag from Shein, so I had to add it to this look!  Isn’t it the cutest!  And it was less than $20!

34EA5070-027C-4D41-AE56-88CF9C293798

This is the Saturday brunch dress you’ve been looking for!  I definitely plan on wearing this dress multiple times over the summer with a cute, vibrant statement necklace or colorful lace-up sandals to complete my ensemble.

As much as I love a good bodycon dress, I feel just as sexy in pieces that are less form fitting and more comfy. This dress is both comfy and sexy all in one! It’s also very trendy and super affordable (always a plus)!  What do you think?  Have you tried any pieces from the Who What Wear™ Collection at Target?  Let me know in the comments below!

I hope you loved this week’s looks!  Make sure you come back Tuesday!  I hope you have an amazing rest of the week!

How Motherhood Changed My Relationship With Shoes

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a “shoe girl” (specifically, a “heel girl”)!  I remember as a kid, going to one of my childhood friends’ house and playing in her mom’s heels.  Her mom had the best shoes and I just knew that one day, my shoe collection would be just as amazing as hers.  Well, as I got older, my love for heels only grew and every chance that I had to buy new shoes, I bought them.

E6037554-0820-4277-94B1-BEE6C8AC8FA2

That all changed once I got pregnant.  Around the time I was about 5 months pregnant, my feet started to swell every evening.   And eventually, they were swollen ALL. THE. TIME.  So, I spent most of my pregnancy wearing the same old ugly, COMFORTABLE shoes.  They weren’t cute at all you guys.

2EF316A3-7277-4577-B473-AA83034A7C26

After having Elijah, I just knew that my feet would go back down to my 9.5/10 shoe size.  I was so excited to be able to wear my heels again!  And I couldn’t wait to get my regular clothes back on too.

53517D8B-50BA-4529-855B-21742E9C90E4

If you’ve ever given birth, then you know that once you have a baby, your body will never be the same.  Now, some women’s bodies change more than others.  Some “snapback”, some take a little more time, and some are just permanently transformed.  In my case, there was no snap back.  My body did not snap back and my feet did not snap back y’all!

F8CA8881-EDFC-441E-9797-780B277C8418

First of all, it took weeks for the swelling in my legs, ankles, and feet to go down.  And even thought the swelling went down, none of my shoes fit the same.  They were too freaking tight!  Basically, my feet had gotten wider.  I’d heard the sayings that your feet go up a size when you have a baby, but I didn’t really believe it.  And I definitely didn’t think it would happen to me.

2855B88A-B45B-48C5-9F70-4D24A02BF544

It did. And for the past couple years, it has been a struggle for me to find cute shoes that actually fit.  And though I love shopping for clothes, shoe shopping is not fun for me at all.  So when I find a heel that I like, I will wear it until the heel falls off literally! So, if you see me recommend a shoe, boot, heel, or sandal, know that they come highly recommended because I do not like buying shoes!

F20E2DEE-4456-4F21-B0CB-135734943B4C

TopASOS  Trousers – Target  HeelsSteve Madden  BagTarget  NecklaceForever 21

About this Look: I have had this bodysuit since forever.  Bodysuits are definitely a must have in your wardrobe because they can be styled so many ways.  They’re a staple for sure.  And as you all can probably tell, I’m really feeling wide leg trousers right now (see my favorite pair here)!  The pair that I’m wearing is from Target’s Who What Wear Collection.  They fit perfectly and they’re another closet staple for the summer, in my opinion.  To break the monotony, I threw on my new fave heels “straight from Steve Madden”!  I literally waited for these to go on sale and clearance so that I could purchase them.  You can never go wrong with a little animal print.  These babies were the perfect addition to my wardrobe and the perfect complement to this look.

By the way, I’m doing a quick shoe haul of some of my recent summer sandal purchases.  So, check out my Instastories on IG at around 7pm EST today.  I know you’re going to enjoy this one.

A Chic Summer Look Inspired By Meghan Markle

2E050E95-D34C-4793-BE43-BC58DC3AA6D1

The hype surrounding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding has yet to die down! So, here I am along for the ride!  Honestly, I didn’t know much about Meghan Markle before the engagement.  Actually, I didn’t even know who she was.  Since the royal wedding, however, her name has been all over the internet and magazine pages.  I even “googled” Meghan  a few times just to see what would come up.  I didn’t discover much other than the fact that, I. LOVE. HER. STYLE.  I’m so serious y’all!  It is the epitome of simple, yet classic; which, of course, is what I’m always drawn to.

What I noticed about her style is that she doesn’t do much print and she usually sticks to neutrals and solid colors.  It’s just very easy and practical.  Though her style is very simple and chic, she always manages to exude a little sex appeal.  And there is nothing wrong with that.  I love the idea of exuding sexiness without having to show all of your “lady-parts” lol!

944BD41A-1D16-4319-9E58-D25D93A79DE89D2272E6-7EA9-43ED-900C-BB0C76D8C6D4

Anyway, there was one particular look Meghan rocked that was super fitting for Summer.  She had on a matching blazer and short set with a with t-shirt underneath, a pair of nude heels, and a huge black statement bag.  See that look here.

276E16F0-AF1F-4BBB-8E3D-5797ED24F73A0B5CFC08-C7E5-46CA-A280-1B306F40FECD

Of course, your girl had to see how I would remix this look!  I stumbled across this jacket on a fashion blog and the skirt was recommended as a piece to wear with it.  It was really that simple.  I paired my nude sandals with the outfit and added a pop of color with my bag from New York & Company.

81B7F259-A87F-4C26-8563-840D9B24F0703DC3AAB0-C353-4DB9-9969-F8B8B8259930

The coordinated shorts and blazer combination with a simple white T-shirt is perfect for that laid-back feel as well.  This look could easily be dressed down with a pair of white sneakers, yet it would still be fun and classic!

55784630-98A2-4A42-9FF2-4E315944D06A

And as you can see, I followed Meghan’s suit by adding a “pale pink” lippie and kept my makeup minimal, per usual.  And there you have it!

Blazer H&M  SkirtH&M  Heels ASOS  BagNY & Company  NecklaceForever 21

I definitely plan to remix a few more of her looks that I loved!  Her style is perfect for us moms-on-the-go that need simple, stylish, and practical pieces to wear during the day.  Look forward to more style inspiration from the Meghan Markle in the future!

What do think of the outfit?  Let me know in the comments below!

A Cool Way to Style the Paperbag Waist Trousers

Good morning family! I hope you’re having an amazing morning after all of the holiday festivities! I’m back to work myself, and I’m trying to get back into the normal workflow.  This past weekend, I had the opportunity to shoot a few of my favorite looks for the blog.  This was one of them.

22FD7075-BC32-495B-B0A9-06F65BB5F443

This look was actually inspired by someone else’s style who I love.  A couple weeks ago, while doing my typical Instagram scroll, I discovered Erin Foster on Rachel Zoe’s IG page.  I so loved the outfit she was rocking that I knew I had to create my own version of it.

24220E1A-8A4A-4B76-8A6F-B04C88496055

I love khaki pants, but I’ve never seen any like the pair that I’m wearing.  They are extremely wide-legged and they’re cropped at the perfect length.  And not to mention, they’re high waist.  I fell in love with them as soon as I put them on.

0105AC7E-ECE3-44FC-A1F2-D52229C07549

So, typically when I wear khaki pants, I pair them with a white, beige, tan, or off-white top.  But what I really loved about Erin’s look is that she added some pops of color.  She wore this lovely multi colored striped top and a pair of bold yellow pumps!!!

79F86172-610F-451D-A36A-31B00A798EE2

I had to find a multi-colored striped top of my own, so I searched those exact words on Google.  I found this super cute and fun off-the-shoulder crop top from Fashion Nova.  Once again, I loved it!

B3EF244F-515E-41AD-B1E0-55FFCE02716E

I tried to find a pair of yellow heels, but the one’s I ordered turned out to be too small.  No worries – I threw on my favorite nude heels from ASOS (you will be seeing these a lot) and my little mustard yellow bag that I bought from Marshall’s a few months ago.

D877F29F-C0F7-44DE-B97A-F0CF53B9506C

TopFashion Nova  PantsASOS  HeelsASOS  BagMarshall’s  NecklaceForever 21

My heart was fully satisfied with the outcome of these pieces pulled together.  What’s even better is that I can bet you that Erin’s outfit was at least five times the cost of mine!  You can look great without spending a bunch of money people!

Y’all, I get so much enjoyment out of putting different looks together.  Especially when they’re a little different from my norm.  This look is definitely one of my favorites.  Probably because of the pops of colors.  I hope you love it too!!!
