You ever see a trend and said, “Oh that’s cute, but it’s not for me.” It happened to me maybe a year ago when culotte jumpsuits came on the scene. I saw a cute jumpsuit on Forever21.com , but when I went to the actual store to try it on, I was over it. I hated the fit on me. The jumpsuit was super cute, but not on me. So I figured this trend wasn’t for me. Now, fast forward to August of this year I’m perusing the clearance rack at Target and the cutest little jumpsuit starts to peek through. Continue Reading »

It’s the unofficial end to summer. Say so long to day parties and sitting pool side. It’s now time for football and everything pumpkin. But it appears the weather gawds didn’t get the message. It’s still hot down here in Alabama and I will not switch into fall mode until the temperatures make a drastic change. Until then, I’m dressing accordingly. So crop tops and cargos it is. .

Matchy- Matchy is typically a fashion no-no, but Co-ords are still trending, big time.  I’ll be honest, I was a little afraid of  taking on this trend because you run the risk of looking like everyone else. Plus, it’s a bold move to wear a head-to-toe print, but some how I convinced myself to take on the trend and I’ve saying yes to matchy-matchy prints ever since. The print I find myself flirting with in a major way is pretty florals.  Continue Reading »

Deciding what to wear is still a daunting task. Can you believe I had this same problem when I wore school uniforms? Pants or skirt? White or blue top? It’s no escaping it for me, but this summer things got a little easier. I developed a go-to- look that featured some of my favorites from the season. I call it my summer uniform. I’ve worn it  HERE, HERE , and kinda sorta HERE.  PLUS, there are countless more times that aren’t pictured.

” Leather  wearing in the summertime “

 

Any time I pull out a leather piece I instantly think of that scene from Waiting to Exhale, where Robin lets Troy have it outside of her apartment balcony.  Troy was wearing leather in the dead of summer out in Arizona.

As that scene replays in my head I always ask myself will I look silly in this leather dress? Will you melt and die of heat exhaustion? And for a quick second I rethink my look, but after seeing just how fabulous I look in my leather dress all of the doubt goes out the window. As a certified fashionista, I’ve  played with the leather  enough times to know that you can still look chic and keep cool in leather during the warmer months. Continue Reading »
