HEY + Spring + Shorts
Hey Ya’ll! I hope everyone is doing well! Dang, I almost forgot my password to login to my blog! I KID! No, but it has been a long while since I have posted. Like everyone in the world, my life has been a little bit hectic. Remember, life isn’t always the way it appears of social media. As I always tell y’all social media isn’t real life! HA! In any event, it is my hope to get back into somewhat of a posting schedule. The summer time is going to be a bit busy, but still I want to get back to my baby, my blog! It’s so crazy how I had a regular posting schedule at one time!
SO N-E-WAY, who is ready for shorts and tanks tops! ME! I am dying over all of the cute trends for Spring and Summer. I found some of the cutest rompers and dresses and cannot wait to share! Wedges are going to be my staple this season. They are easy on the feet. I linked some of my favorites below!
I hope everyone is doing well, and thanks for your continued support!
Black + Valentines Day Romper
Hi everyone! I hope everyone is doing well, and had a great weekend. The weather was so nice over the weekend and well into the 80’s. My son and I were able to meet up with my best friend for dinner on Saturday who is more like my sister to celebrate my birthday early. It was nice spending time with my best friend. We don’t see each other that often despite being about 45 minutes apart. I haven’t done much of anything as I have been recovering and dealing with my overall health. Getting out with my friends and family felt great, and was a nice change of pace!
I am so thankful for my blog and my readers. My blog gives me a pause in life. When I’m out taking photos with my son its as if all the bad, sad and wrong doesn’t exist. It’s my son sharing his love of photography and me sharing my love of fashion. What’s your outlet? Or hobby? Everyone has to have one, its the best form of therapy. AND its cheaper! Am I right?
Alright! On to this Valentines day business! Who has plans to get out and enjoy this day with loved ones? I have come across so many different looks. LOTS of red. I figured I would don this black romper with a pop of gold from my heels and a red LIP! My red lip was my flirt of red. This romper is everything! Red can be hard to wear so I opted for something neutral that can be worn over and over. I love this little romper because it appears to be a dress but it’s not. SUPER cute! Rompers are the best, but I have learned to not go crazy with all sorts of patterns of flowers. Don’t get me wrong, I love patterns and flowers. But have learned not to over do it.
Thanks for hanging in there with me as I shuffle through this so called life. I am doing my best to post at least once per week. Please know that my blog isn’t simply a collection of pictures, but a collection of love. I care for my readers and people. The absolute best is hearing how my story helped you or how you gained inspo from one of my outfits! That is what gives me the MOST joy!
Keep shining babes!

Hey, ya’ll hey ! I have decided that I am going to continue to kill the game with the off the shoulder trend. I will simply drap, a moto jacket over my shoulders! I mean….why not! Everyone is loving the sneaker trend! Again, I have had MY classics since DAY one, stay one! LOL! 😉 As well as my Air Force 1’s low’s, and mid’s. I’m not a gangster or anything…LOL! I just know sneakers a little bit. N-E-Way rocking Chambray with classics is always easy, and quick. You can never go wrong. Everyone needs a Chambray off the shoulder dress in their wardrobe! I added a little cross body, that I scored @ 40% off and I was good to go!

A-Line Skirt + Shake Your Shoulders
Hey! I hope everyone is doing well this Friday morning! I woke up with a large amount of weight lifted off of my shoulders! The VA finally approved, and authorized me to see a specialist who is LITERALLY the BEST! If anyone know’s anything about the VA system, getting an authorization to see an outside provider is like death…LOL. No, but seriously it is. I believe in the power of prayer, and God answered mine. More to come on that whole story later, I’m just happy that I am going to get the care that I need! My blog has be my savior! All of your wonderful comments, and words of encouragement mean the WORLD! My life is far from perfect, even though my Instagram feed makes it seem that way! Just keeping it 1000% LOL!!!!!
N-E-Way isn’t this little A-Line skirt the best! I have been holding on to it for a little while, and decided to pull it out, and wear it to brunch with the fam. I have to stop going out to eat, shit, its starting to show. Express had a ton of off the shoulder tops, I grabbed a few of them a while back when they were buy one get one 50% off. You know I’m not paying full price! I have been living in them! LOVE, them! Have a wonderful day babes!

Shorts + Off the Shoulders
Hey! It’s Tuesday! One step closer to the weekend! Not that I’m counting, or anything! So, my first photo is the only running, well I’ll say skipping that I have done is close to two weeks! Oops! LOL! I have had the worst sinus infection! N-E-Way….. I am OBSESSED with American Eagle shorts! Not only are they affordable, but they are super comfy. My best friend, and I were talking yesterday, on sizing, and I’m usually pretty spot on when I tell someone to size up in a brand. If you don’t want these shorts way, way up…then you need to size up! I literally, just made that up! I know, I know I’m good! I am also loving these espadrilles that I purchased from #bloomingdales! They are so comfy! These were as close as I could get to dupes! I am linking my oufit today as an extra #ootd post, as today is usually an accessories, or sale day posting, but will also link my traditional fashion finds below! Have an amazing day babes!

Shoulder Trend Alert!
Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Thursday morning! Soooo, how do you feel about all of the off the shoulder top, and dress trend? I am loving some of them, ALOT! As with any trend, be careful with your selections, and don’t go and buy out the store! You will be stuck with a ton of off the shoulder tops, and dresses in the fall! I think one in a few different colors offers a good amount of variety for Spring, and Summer! N-E-Way, I did a round up of a ton of my favorites, and linked them all below! Guess which 3 I bought? I found a few that were under $10.00! CRAZY!
Have a great day babes!
Fiesta + Spring Dress
Happy Friday! I know everyone is ready for the weekend! Festival weekend right! Well, I hope everyone’s morning is off to a fantastic start! So, about this little dress! Some like to call it a party dress, I like to call it, a dress up or down wardrobe staple! You can wear this dress with flats, or add some flare to it with a pair of heels! I love gold jewelry, so I add that in for the win every time!
I want to add a little side note because I get a lot of email, especially from younger ladies about skin issues, or weight loss struggles. Please, please remember that no one has a picture perfect life. I don’t care how a person’s Instagram, or blog portray’s their life, it’s not all Pitch Perfect. I have struggles to ladies, we all do. Keep your head up in the clouds, and not down in the ground!
Have a FAB weekend!

Prints + Destroyed Denim
Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! On Monday night we drove to Austin to help my best-friend Vanessa celebrate her son’s birthday! Vanessa, and I have known one another since the 4th GRADE! CRAZY right! I keep telling everyone, that I am the #1 friend to have…LOL!
We had dinner, and grabbed a few snaps while downtown in Austin. I am so annoying ya’ll, whenever I can take a snap, I do. Contrary to what most people think, I don’t walk around dressed to the 9’s 24/7. Fashion, and make-up have always been a passion, and a hobby of mine. I personally feel that having a hobby, and passion is healthy. Like playing a sport, or knitting etc.
N-E-Way, we are both obsessed with handbags and shoes! Her more than me! LOL! Sike! its about the same, but we like different kinds of bags. We both love CLB’s. My family live’s in Austin, and my mom lives about an hour outside of Austin. I don’t get as excited about Austin as some people do..LOL! When people post about SXSW, I’m thinking, how far can I stay away from Austin, so I don’t get caught in traffic! Austin traffic is the WORST! Seriously, I have NEVER! I have done the Austin SXSW thing since I was 18 years old, and don’t get too too excited anymore. Ya’ll understand, Right? Call it old age….LOL!
I am loving prints, lately…and this TANK is a FAV! #musthave
High Slits + Long Dresses
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! We took these snaps on the way to lunch over the weekend. I am still recovering from a bit of craziness, and sticking to a super bland diet as of late. I am hoping to get some answers today! I always find that smiling, throwing on a pretty dress, and heel, helps my spirit! Lipstick, and Heels LADIES! Works every time! Smiling is also so good for the soul! I try to smile as often as possible, no matter the circumstances!
So…N-E-Way….This dress is the cutest RIGHT! At first, I was kinda like maybe and then, maybe not, and then I just went for it! I added my Stuarts for some flare…and #boom! If you ever make an investment in a pair of heels, this should be the one! I have had these for a few years, and they never disappoint! They can be dressed up, or dressed down!
As for this dress! AMAZE! SIZE down! I am wearing a size small, and wish I would have bought the extra small. I will link dupes for the my Stuarts, as Steve Madden makes amazing dupes of every shoe on the market! Love ya’ll!
Hey! Really quick before I dive in, I was asked on insta why I never do quick mirror snaps, etc. I really have no excuse! LOL! My only excuse is that I’m LAZY! LOL! I will do my best going forward to get quick snaps of my lipstick, nail polish, bedroom furniture, living room etc. My lifestyle, per say. I’m not the biggest fan of mirror snaps, and would just rather do all my #ootd’s with an digi, but I know that’s unfair and not realistic. I always eat my food before thinking of a photo, so that’s out the window!
So, I am always on the look out for a good deal, or a sale! I mean, I blog about fashion….LOL! A human can never too many pairs of shoes, or jeans! Anyway, Express is having a an amazing SALE, it’s basically 20% off of all of their clearance merchandise! I linked a few of my fav’s, as well as a few of my fav’s from Forever 21 that are all under $20! My Forever 21 picks all under $20! Snatch them up!
The shoes I linked from Express are a STEAL! I bought the red heeled fringed pair, YES I already have a pair from BR. I bought this pair because they are a little different, and a red heel can add that instant pop to any outfit! Everyone needs a red heel! For the PRICE, its A WIN!
