Do you Inspire or Influence?!

Happy Monday Loves!  I know, it has been a while since a Monday blog post!  But over the weekend, I had some much needed rest being down with migraines, lack of sleep, and among that my dear mother fell and suffered a concussion which was the scariest moment, making my migraines worsen!  After a much needed relaxed weekend, I had some thoughts and those thoughts I began to jot down on a notebook so I wouldn't forget!

So, let's get right into this topic, this is slightly different from my normal fashion look posts, but it is something that was on my mind and I felt needed to be read and heard, because I am sure I am not the only one who feels this way, has had these thoughts, or thought about it!  Social media over the last ten years has become the go to source for EVERYTHING, and by that I mean EVERYTHING!  From advertising, lifestyle, social life, places to eat, places to entertain, places to take your kids, places for self-care, etc...

And that is okay with me, I am okay wit…

My Favorite Basket-Weave Block Heel Mules and Slides!

Image
Happy Friday Loves!  Here we are with yet another week gone by!  Summer is almost officially here!  What are your favorite styles of sandals and heels for Summer?!  I love block heels, block heel slides, and block heel mules!  They can be styled chic and street, casual, beach ready, and even dressed up!

Lately, I have been crushing on basket-weave styled bags, mules, and slides!  They are the perfect Summer accessory to give you that chic to street style look!  I've styled these Steve Madden dupes with a denim skirt, double buckle belt, and of course, a statement sleeve off the shoulder top!  I found the top and block heel mules at my local DD's Discount Store, the top was just $5.99 and the basket-weave mule block heels were $12.99!  The denim skirt was a clearance find for just $3 at my local Wal-Mart!  I love shopping looks for less, way way less!  And sometimes people don't even notice they are the dupes!  So, I have linked some similar styles that I found on the baske…

Blazer Sets to Love Spring into Summer!

Happy Hump Day once again!  I hope everyone enjoyed their three day weekend in observance of Memorial Day!  Did anyone catch any sales?!  I haven't really been shopping because I am getting ready for vacation and have been shopping more for the family outfits, family shoes, and family bathing suits!

But right now, lets talk about the affordable and cute blazer skirt and blazer short sets I am loving for Spring into Summer!  How do you prefer styling them?  Block heels, flat sandals, slides, or sneakers?  Now you all know that I prefer heels!  I just can't imagine life with no heels!  I guess my body is used to it, because when I do decide to opt for slides or sneakers, my back hurts!

So, lets get into the cutest sets and where to shop them!  I'll post links as well as photos of item!  I've linked the exact blazer I wore below, but the skirt is currently sold out!  The blazer and skirt are from Forever21 and were affordable!  Linen always tends to be best in Spring to e…

My Favorite Striped Midi Dresses!

Image
Happy Wednesday!  I hope you all are having another fabulous week!  The Season for pretty dresses is here!  And right now I am obsessed with striped midi length dresses!  The easiest piece of clothing you can style is a dress!  All you need is a hat, cute bag, and statement earrings!  You can wear them with ankle strap heels, espadrille wedge sandals, and sneakers!  I have been seeing a lot of the sneaker dress trend and I am here for it!  One of the dresses below, I styled with simple clean and classic guess tennis shoes!  I hardly wear sneakers or tennis shoes out, usually just when I work out, but one of my local style influencer's on Instagram @aylinnmendiola has been killing the dresses and sneaker trend and so she gave me some inspo for one of my looks!  She styles dresses and skirts so well with classic white sneakers, dad sneakers, and even espadrille sneakers!

Pant Set Favorites!

Image
Spring has sprung and I am all for pant sets with crop tops and sleeveless blazers!  I love that I can style them with chunky platform heels, block heels, and even kitten heels for a more casual look!  I know, I know, most say 38 and still buying crop tops?!  Why, yes, I sure am!  I've earned this body, I've had four kiddos and three other major abdominal surgeries, and my confidence is so awesome, that yes, I am all for crop tops and pretty crop blouses!

I used to hate sleeveless anything because well, most my life has been all about cardio! So toned arms hasn't been a priority until recently!  I am slowly working at it and I will take the progress in baby steps!  But for now, I will just embrace the "salt shaker" arms!!!

I have linked the cutest and most affordable two piece sets from several different stores and brands!  I have also included some plus sizes for my gals!  I want to stress that two piece sets aren't just for small slim body types, all women,…
