Red Is The New Black...

Monday, July 30, 2012

Happy Monday Loves! (what's left of it anyway lol) I hope you had amazing weekends! I sure did! Babe and I went on a short vacay to one of our fave places; Gatlinburg! We went sightseeing, shopping (I mean, have you met me? lol), ate crazy foods, rode go-karts, played mini golf, and had so much fun! Everyone was so nice and friendly, I just love that little town! We were so carefree and acted like big kids the whole time, I am so thankful that we were able to celebrate his birthday and just really enjoy ourselves and take a break from reality! We really enjoy traveling and I look forward to wherever we visit next! 

Style Guide: When wearing looser pieces on the bottom and top like I have in this look, try wearing a skinny belt over the top to cinch it in. Doing this will add a waistline and add some shape to the outfit.

Leopard & Nude!

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

It's Humpday again loves! I've missed you guys! I had a lot of school work to get done hence the missed post Monday. I hope you all had wonderful weekends! Today's look is super simple and really reflects my style. Do you ever find yourself over complicating your look? You pile on the jewelry, layer several pieces, and though you may end up cute, you're not at your usual level of comfort?  I do that from time to time but for this look, I decided to keep it super simple and wore my maxi skirt you've seen here and my leopard blouse you've also seen here. Both pieces really complemented and balanced each other out and it was super comfortable at that! 
PS. I didn't cut my hair, the intense heat just caused it to shrink like crazy lol. 
Today I am sharing my style over at The Pleated Poppy and Rolled Up Pretty who just had the cutest baby!

Style Guide: When wearing a blouse with a print, such as the one I have on, consider adding a bottom with a color that is in or around the same color family. It will give the entire look balance!

Stay tuned as I will be announcing my FIRST *giveaway* on Friday as a thank you for all of the love and support you have shown both me and my blog! :)

What I Wore: | Blouse: Marshall's | Maxi Skirt: F21 | Sandals: Target (old) | Clutch: Vintage | Accessories: Assortment | Mani: Essie- E-nuf is E-nuf |

Chambray & Another Turban!

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

It's Humpday again loves and I'm back with another post! This one is featuring another of my fave scarves worn as a turban with a really simple outfit! I wore this look to go shopping for with my sisters and I didn't want to fuss with my hair in the crazy humidity so I left my hair in twists and tied this bad-boy on my head! Still working on a tutorial for those of my lovely readers who asked...coming soon! What do you think about this look? Thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post featuring my lovely sissies!

Style Guide: If you're wearing a simple outfit adding a scarf with print or bright colors adds a little spice to the overall look! 

If you're a blogger and you have worn a scarf as a turban, please provide your link in the comments, I'd love to see them! :)

What I Wore: | Scarf: F21 | Tank: H&M | Skirt: Banana Republic | Flats: Target (very very old) | Bag: Vintage Liz Claiborne | Sunnies: Target | Jewelry: Assortment |

Happy late Monday loves! I hope you all had wonderful weekend! We went to go get our baby sis to stay the week with us. We have been having so much fun! I'm excited to have a girls' day and night all week! She will be heading to college as a freshman in a few weeks so I'm happy to get to spend this quality time with her. This post is an ode to my sissies and the title of this post is a line from one of our fave Elle Varner songs So Fly. They are my best friends and they are so beautiful inside and out, so I figured I would feature them and their gorgeous styles! :)
