Monochromatic Looks For Summer!

Image
The great thing about Summer as a fashionista and style enthusiast is that Summer just doesn't have to be about bold patterns and colors!  Summer is also about wearing you favorite neutrals!  I've had some favorite all white looks and off white looks!

Monochromatic looks are effortless, chic, and can be pulled off in the Summer!  I personally love wearing off white denim later in the Summer when the temps aren't so scorching hot!  Remember guys, I am in Texas, and our Summers are brutal!  Shades of nude from head to toe are also a favorite of mine!  From the accessories to the shoes, all nude pieces give me all the Summer feels!

Pulling off these monochromatic looks isn't easy!  You have to make sure all the tones are within the same neutral shades!  In other words, don't get that brightest white blouse and ivory pants or skirt!  They all have to blend together for that perfect monochromatic look!

Below are two outfits that I recently styled so you can see how thes…

Taking Looks From Night to Day!

Image
Looks can be taken from day to night with simple classic pieces! Whether you have a dinner date, girl's night out, or just a movie matinee or brunch, you don't have to buy an outfit for each occasion!  Okay, you could, but remember, I show you how to restyle the same pieces in your closet without having to spend all your money!

The cotton bodycon dress is the perfect example!  This LBD is from Charlotte Russe and was on their clearance racks two weeks ago for just $8!  I had been hunting one down to wear on days I am on the go with the kids and I could style with my Keds white tennis shoes!  But one that I could also easily pair with heels and a cute clutch for a date night!

Why spend money for outfits to each occasion when you can shop your own closet!  I mean, it is hard to pass up good deals and great clearance mark downs, but I bet you have something in your closet that you can re-style more than once!




































One dress, styled two different ways!  That's what I love about sty…

Do You Resale Shop?! Reasons Why I Love It!

Image
Happy Sunday Babes!

I don't know how many of you can honestly say you are okay with resale shopping or actually be comfortable saying you do!  Well, let me tell you all, I love it and don't mind it at all!  Coming from a family of five, my mother was the biggest thrift store, yard sale, and hand-me-down Queen!  She believes in saving money and getting deals on the number one thing we all use and dispose of on the regular, clothes!

And I am being brutally honest when I say, I was never embarrassed or ashamed to say where my clothing came from or how my mother got them!  I even remember shopping garage sales on my own in high school and being proud of finding pretty and gently used clothing, even designer and name brands!

Today as a mother of four, you will still find me shopping resale stores for my kids!  Yes, you will find me at my local Kid To Kid, Plato's Closet, and Uptown Cheapskate!  Even Goodwill stores for vintage items for myself!  I can't say I shop resale st…

Keeping Shorts Chic, Street Style, and Classy in My Late 30's!

Image
Hello again my faithful readers!  How y'all doing?! This week's blog post is inspired by 1) This Summer heat Texas is enduring and 2) Shorts become the best option for triple digit heat!  I also kick the that old saying in fashion once upon a time, that women after 30 years of age shouldn't wear short shorts or cutoffs!  Mind you all, I am 37, and I still wear cutoff's and short dress shorts!  They key for me is to give them a chic and street style look.  Styling them with pretty blouses, light blazers in the midst of Summer, and accessories to draw away from the shorts themselves! 

Of course, I not where I once was physically, but this mom of four still has the courage and confidence to pull these types of shorts off!  So don't be shy ladies, especially my ladies over 30!  Remember, you rock the outfit, don't let the outfit wear you!
Dress Shorts:  Dress shorts are my favorite in the Summer because you can pull off a chic look by adding pretty blouses, blouses…

Celeb Looks For Less: The JLo Spin-Off Look!

Image
As you all can see, I am the biggest Jennifer Lopez fan there is!  I especially love how her style has evolved throughout her career and life!  I can identify with her style so much because her Latina roots just make it work every time for her!  She has a style that goes from athleisure, street style. street chic, glam, and Goddess like!  When I first started blogging I would do a lot of JLo looks for less!  I've recently started back up again and I want to continue doing JLo looks and many other celebrity style icons that have made their style known to the world!  And who's style has also caught my eye!

Now when I say looks for less, I mean this stay-at-home mom's budget!  And not necessarily copying the exact look from head to toe either, because I also try and make it my own with minimal changes!  But you get the overall picture of what I am doing!

Today's looks is inspired by Jennifer Lopez's outfit while in NYC back on July 1, 2018 with her daughter and ARod&#…

Re-Styling What Is Already In Your Closet!

Image
Hello ladies and gents!  My faithful readers! For those that don't know, I have been watching my younger little sister's baby boy since she went back to work 6 weeks postpartum!  Since I am already a stay-at-home mother of four, I chose to help her out so my nephew wouldn't be in the hands of strangers!  Well let me just say, after having two independent school aged kiddos (my two youngest), this new journey is like me starting all over again!  So now I am juggling my kiddos, my nephew, all the duties that come with a household, husband, and kids, plus the blog!  All while still studying to re-take the law school entrance exam!  Don't ask me how, but I am managing somehow!

In learning how to juggle a newborn infant into my already chaotic life, I have drifted a bit away from my goals blogging for you guys, and for that I am so sorry!  Sometimes life happens and we have to handle it and juggle everything else we want to accomplish in life!  It has been a so-so transitio…

The Fab Five Fashionista's: Fourth of July Edition!

Image
Every fashion blogger's dream!  To share outfits and give outfit ideas for major holidays like this one!  What I love about July 4th outfit inspo is that you can dress up or dress down, depending on where you will be!  There are looks for formal parties as well as casual looks for that outdoor barbecue!

And this time, my fashion blogger sister's and I bring you looks that are chic, casual, stylish, and ones you can easily afford!  Let me begin with showing you three looks I put together and where I found them!

My first look is casual and easy!  The red tube top under the button-up, the polka-dot button up, and the denim mini skirt are all from my local TJMaxx.  The tube top was $4.99, the polka-dot button up was on clearance for $8.00, and the denim mini was $14.99!  I kept it casual with all white Keds which I scored at my local Ross under $25.00 and the red tassel earrings are an older purchase from my local Forever21!




The next look was so much fun because it is perfect for …
