The Summer Maxi Dresses I am Loving and Why!

Image
This week's blog focuses on the maxi dress!  A style that I love for its sexy, bold, and romantic style!  This Summer I am especially loving maxi dresses that are bold in patterns and colors, off the shoulder, halter top, and tank top style!  Now, remember, I am only 5'3 and so I have to be careful that I purchase dresses that I can wear with heels or flats, and I won't trip over them!
This Season I have come to love stripes, bold colors, and off the shoulder a lot!  But I have also purchased some halter top styles and floral printed styles that have given me LIFE and made me feel like a Goddess!
The two dresses I styled below, I purchased from New York and Company during their BOGO half off sale!  I paid full price for one dress and half off the second!  The off the shoulder striped Tatiana Maxi dress was $89.95 and the Ariella halter maxi dress was $49.97!  I love that both dresses made me feel sexy, confident, and like a Latina Goddess! The accessories were easy to pair…

Jumpsuit Favorites Styled Easy and Affordable!

The Spring and Summer trend you've been seeing a lot lately are jumpsuits!  Jumpsuits in every color, pattern, style, long, mid-length, and prints of every kind!  I love jumpsuits, but they aren't as practical as they seem, so if you are going to wear one or are thinking of buying some, make sure you are aware of the extra work you will have when having to take bathroom breaks!  Some jumpsuits have back zippers and those require extra hands to help you zip up! 

Here are some tips I've learned throughout the years when wearing jumpsuits:

1) Always buy easy to pull off and on materials and styles;

2) Choose light fabrics for late Spring into Summer; and

3)  Affordable jumpsuits have to be easy to take off and put on!  You don't want to get stuck trying to call for help while in the ladies room!!

Also, for those ladies that are petite like me (5'3) make sure that if a long length jumpsuit is too long, will it be worth it to take it for alterations!  Very rarely do I h…

The Skirt Edition: How to Style Skirts for Summer!

Image
Summer is right around the corner fashionista friends, followers, and fellow blogger's!  And I know you all know that I say it all the time, Texas heat is bad!  Yes, we get the triple digits, dry heat, some Summer's we go with hardly any rain!  So how am I going to slay looks in triple digit heat?  I am keeping the fabrics light, flowy, and easy!

Skirts are always a favorite of mine for Summer, and I love styles like pencil skirts, short skirts, maxi skirts, ruffled skirts, and high hem/low hem skirts!  And this Summer I will be styling them with pretty tops, crop tops, off the shoulder tops, and tank tops!  All while keeping the fabrics as light as possible so I don't over heat!
The first look below is fun and flirty!  The top was under $10.00 at Forever21, the A.New.Day skirt was under $25 at Target, and the round straw bag I purchased a few months ago on the Wish App also under $25!  The heels I've had and they matched perfectly!  Then I completed the look with tass…

Texas Heat Before Summer Calls For Summer Shorts!

Image
The first official day of Summer this year if not until June 21, 2018, but yet in the South (Texas) that is, it sure feels like Summer already!!!! So, the question then is, how do we stay stylish and fashionable in triple digit heat, how do we style our wardrobe so we don't over heat, and most importantly for me, how does my style stay on point, especially when photographing my outfits?!  Well, I will tell you how I plan on staying stylish yet cool for Summer, I will most likely live in shorts, light pretty tops, and hair-buns and top knots!  Recently, I blogged about making shorts chic and street style for Spring into Summer, and today's blog post continues to show how to style them and I've also stressed the importance of keeping the fabrics as light weight as possible!

Now, most of you know I am 37 years old, mom of four kids, and wife to a wonderful supportive husband.  And with that said, I want to also share that in my late 30's, I still wear shorts, despite what…
