Henley + My Favorite Pair of Jeans
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and is off to a great Monday! Who loves Mondays? Kidding! The weather was really nice in the San Antonio area. It was well into the 70’s, and one day 80’s. Current events have been so crazy lately. Yesterday there was a shooting at a mall that my son and I frequent, about 10 minutes or less from my house. In many instances I have allowed my son to go to Rolling Oaks Mall with his friend to shop etc. My heart sunk as one of his friends sent him a text message saying that they were physically there at the time of the shooting. I am still horrified. One person was killed, and seven were injured. Two individuals were attempting to rob a jewelry store. I am still in disbelief. Why would someone do such a thing? Public shootings have really become a norm in our country and its VERY scary. My kiddo immediately said he never wanted to go to that mall again. I am so sad that he has to live his life in fear. I didn’t live my child or teen years in fear of mass or public shootings. It’s disheartening. Praying for peace in our country.
Alright! Sorry for the moment of sadness! Finding clothes during this up and down weather has proven to be a task! I REFUSE to bust out shorts. Its not that type of party. Besides the extreme paleness of my legs would SCARE everyone. I appreciate that I can wear sandals in the “colder” months, LOL, so I pulled out my Animal Print Steven Madden Carson’s. Ya’ll, I SEARCHED high, and low and cannot find these anywhere. Steve Madden usually repeats shoes over multiple seasons, and I though for sure these would be repeats! NOPE! Don’t worry, I linked similar! As the season progresses into Spring I will post all of my Spring favorites. White t-shirts are always a staple in my wardrobe…LADIES please don’t allow your bra to show. I’ll leave it there. My jeans are EVERYTHING! Ya’ll grab these! I was able to squeeze these thighs of mine into a size 2, they must run BIG! LOL! I would say they run large. This particular pair of destroyed denim is VERY popular. They had them in like 2 stores in SA. I bought two pair, jeans are not forgiving on me at all! Anywho- Have an AMAZING DAY babes!
Denim + Denim
I’m back on the blog with a denim on denim look! I’m always afraid of denim on denim until I put it on! It’s such a classic, and you can legit make it work with any shade of denim. I added a nude heel which is always my go too! I hope everyone is off to a great start in 2017! I’m too thrilled that 2016 is behind me. Last year was no doubt one of the worst! I am writing a series of blog posts specifically about why last year was the worst….stay tuned! Until then here is DENIM + DENIM! PS: My top is mens! I simply sized down!
Destroyed + Off the Shoulder (trend to stay)
It’s Labor Day…and I hope everyone has off today! If you don’t, wonk, wonk! I hope everyone had a great weekend! The weather has been so up, and down lately! One thing has remained the same…IT IS STILL HOT! N-E-Way, the off the shoulder trend seems to be in full force! I am a fan! It is extremely simple to throw on one of these tops and be on your way! You can find my exact top HERE! It was literally $11.99!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously a STEAL! I have never had any issues with this company. It does take about 10 days to get your stuff, but for the price I cannot complain!
Jean Jacket + BlacK
Hey! Happy Friday! This week seems like a blur! So glad it is Friday, this has been a long week! I have been MIA like crazy in every aspect of my life. Sometimes I have to knock on my own head and ask if anyone is home! LOL! My little mini human is back in school so we have been getting back into the swing of things with school. Let me stop! DEAR LESLEY, stop being a lazy ass, and post your blog post! Sincerely, GET OVER YOURSELF!!! LOL!
N-E-way! How cute is this little jean jacket?! I am dying over it! I can’t wait to style it in future post.I wore it with a little swing dress with all of the rain we were having, and it was perfect! Not to heavy at all! Def. a staple! Can we talk about this little handbag from BR for a second?!!! First you know I am the cheapest blogger on the planet right? I believe in choosing what you spend on fashion pieces wisely. Shoes are my favorite…probably because I spent a lot of time being overweight, and shoes always fit no matter what. I grabbed this little handbag when BR had an additional 40% off, and I had reward $$$ so it was a MAJOR win! This little beauty goes with everything! Someone asked in a IG post if this is really what I wear? ummmmmmmmm Yes? What do you mean? I wear all of my jewelry, and my makeup and heels when I get ready for the day. I think getting ready, and fully dressed helps a persons overall wellbeing. I think everyone judges people by their appearance. I would be lying if I said I never have. Do I skim past a person and don’t care about them at all, sure. I judge my Doctors in every since. If they are overweight, how can they give me advice about losing weight? Or advise me to lose weight. If they smell of cigarette smoke, F-O-R-G-E-T IT!!! Nothing they say has VALUE!!!!!
As always…I am rambling…
Happiness Boutique + Plaid
Good Mornining everyone! I apologize for not being MIA! My laptop crashed so it has been CRAZY! N-E-Way, I want to talk about a few of the amazing pieces that I have received from Happiness Boutique!

LOVE IT! My heels, what can I say besides….they are THE BEST! MY sunnies are linked but they show up in a taupe like color! The should let you select the color red! These sunnies, are LIFE!

So Basic Look + Blue
Hey! I hope everyone is having a good morning so far! I have another #NSALE style for you guys! This stripe tee is a staple, and can be styled in so many different ways.I am sure you have seen this little tee floating around Instagram, but you have not seen me style it! LOL! This tee is not true to size, it runs quite large. I bought the olive color as well. I haven’t listed all of the items I bought from the #NSALE for one reason, I’m LAZY. LOL! I bet you thought I was going to say something else! I have linked a ton of the items that I have bought though. I will continue post practical versatile pieces. If you are looking for long boots, you will not get that from me on my blog at this time. LOL, not happening. See previous post for details.
I call this look my so basic look, and added my blue bag for a pop of color!
Have a fab day babes!
Casual + Heels
Hey! I hope everyone is having great morning so far, and had a great weekend! I didn’t do much at all, the heat is just hard to beat! It doesn’t really matter what you wear at this point, its just hot! My favorite thing to wear is destroyed denim paired with some sort of heel, it seems like it adds a bit of flare to any look!
I am having trouble adding separate links. Please use links above! Have a good one!
Chambray + Denim
Well, it’s Wednesday! Half way through the week! My goodness the summer heat has been something else! It seems like it’s blazing when I wake up, and blazing when go to sleep. I am loving off the shoulder tops as of late! And, it seems like everyone else is loving them as well. They are super simple, and easy to wear! I love American Eagle shorts because my legs are larger than the average female. I have big thighs, and I cannot lie…LOL! I always size up in shorts! This particular chambray top is not true to size. This is a small, and it a tad too big. I linked a few other options below $30.00. I pushed a little with Chambray and denim, but who cares. I thought it was super cute! I have had this top since the beginning of the Spring season, and have walked past it in my closet at least 50 times! LOL! I think I have one similar. I don’t know how I feel about the ties on the sleeves. I will have to wear it again to get a complete assessment. The Steve Madden heels are LIFE! LOVE THEM!

Have an amazing day babes!
Shorts + Booties
Hey! I hope everyone’s Monday is off to a great start! I loved all of the Father’s Day post yesterday! Pretty Amazing! I want to start off by saying that the last few weeks, and days have been filled with so much tragedy and loss. It has been absolutely heart wrenching. It’s hard to watch any kind of news, much less be on social media. I pray God restores peace, and solace in the hearts of those who have suffered the loss of loved ones. I pray for love, in a time in which I feel our country needs it most. And lastly, I pray that no Presidential candidate use tragedy as political gain, and focus only on the needs of the American People.
Every now and again I like to remind everyone about the perception on social media. Social media portrays the best version of ourselves. I know my Instagram does. I have seen some Instagram accounts, especially (weight-loss) that show the real deal. I commend the ladies that show their true before and afters. But, the majority of people do not show their true form. ME! LOL!
My photo’s are taken with a digital camera, which look very different from iPhone photo’s. VERY DIFFERENT! Sometimes I take a selfie and I’m like, NOPE! LOL! j/k. j/k! All of my photos have a filter to fit the theme of my Insta. I don’t wear a full face of make-up everyday. But, when I am going out for the day, I do get dressed and wear make-up. I feel like this is good for me mentally, and physically. Even if I feel the worst, I make myself. My life is not perfect, it’s far from it. We all have personal things that go on in our life, you know? It’s easy to get sucked up into social media, and think that a person is #perfection, and they are not. The snaps we take most likely take 10-15 minutes of our entire day. The editing most likely takes the most time, which I don’t do. My son does my editing! He is so good at anything photography wise, and social media in general. Snaps occur 1-2 times per week out of love for fashion, style or make-up. The same love as someone who may love to run, or bike or swim. I think people forget, that we love fashion what goes into having a blog, and that writing/blogging is out of love. I am extremely selective about the content that I offer. I say no ALOT! Just remember that no one is perfect as you scroll insta, I know I’m not!
