Sweeties,

September has kept me on my toes . This has been one busy month and we’re only half way through. I’ve been so busy I’ve neglected important things like “Manicure Mondays” and fall boot shopping. It’s time I put my sandals away and start looking for fall boots.

Yup , fun things have fallen by the waist side, while I’ve taken care of business. Hopefully greatness awaits me on the other half of September.

While I’ve been on the move so has the beauty and fashion world. Here’s the latest:

Sweeties,

Can I be honest? Okay, here goes….. I was never a fan of maxi dress until maybe two years ago.Even after buying this beautiful printed Maxi from Forever 21 several years ago I still wasn’t quite sold.

I don’t know why I wasn’t an instant fan of maxi dresses. They’re easy, breezy, and tend to work for most occasions, so what was the problem. I wish I could tell you, but whatever it was I’m glad its over. I love them now and I own at least six. I’ve even found a cool way to maximize the maxi. Continue Reading »

Happy Hump Day Sweeties! This week is off to a great start. The weather has been amazing. For a second I thought I was back in Alabama. It was so warm I even laid out on the beach. I also enjoyed my second week of kick boxing. I swear I’m picking up a new hobby every week to keep me busy. And I don’t know about you guys, but I’m still recovering from Beyoncé’s MTV Video Music Awards shut down. Insane right,? How about the adorable Blue Ivy? I’m still gushing. But there’s more going on in the beauty, entertainment and fashion world. Here’s the latest. Continue Reading »

Sweeties,
Next to stripes, polka dots may be my favorite print. It’s fun and whimsical. Any time I wear this print I’m always smiling. It’s something about  polka dots that bring a positive energy. Usually if its polka dots and stylish, I’m grabbing it. So imagine how excited I was to spot this MERONA polka dot blouse on Target’s clearance rack. The blouse is simple, and although polka dots are considered fun, this blouse didn’t skimp on the sophistication.

Because of the button down style of the blouse, I knew without a shadow of a doubt I could rock it with just about anything in my closet. So I put it to the test. Check out how I styled my blouse three different ways.

Sweeties,

I hate to force a look. You have a bomb piece that you can’t wait to wear and instead of holing out until you have the other pieces to compliment the look in the best way you go ahead and wear it anyway. I feel like its a waste of a good outfit . Sweeties, don’t force the look.I’ve been here before. Too many times. I tried to force a look with this beautiful KENAR crochet skirt, but thank goodness I waited to give this look its full potential. Continue Reading »

I’ve already picked out a room, scoped out some hot spots , and have a few looks in mind. Continue Reading »
