Clothes before Bros

Hi Lovies!

I love graphic tees, especially when they have cute sayings or phrases on them, I've collected quite a few. You can do so much with them and they can easily be dressed up or down, depending on how you want to wear it. So when I saw this graphic tee on Lacey from The Lacey Perspective I squealed a little and immediately bought it! It was such the perfect phrase cause umm, clothes come before a lot of things in my book lol!

Style Tip: This tee is from the juniors section but I ordered an XL and it fit me fine. The skirt is from ASOS straight sizes, I got a US14. It fits me fine due to the generous elastic waist.

Memorial Day Simple

Hi Lovies!

Having a 3 day weekend is always a good thing, they should definitely happen more often. This weekend was Memorial Day weekend and I have to say mine was pretty low key. I didn't go away for the weekend nor did I attend any BBQ's (insert sad face). But I still enjoy it and got to spend Memorial day with my BCF (best cousin ever) who is an awesome cook. She made sliders, shish kebobs, and of course some rice & beans. So even though we weren't at an actual BBQ, she made it feel like one. Since I was keeping it low key, I also kept my outfit that way. The folks over at Fashion to Figure must have known I was keeping it simple cause they sent me a surprise gift Friday of this adorable outfit. It totally made me want to go sailing on a boat, it was such a nautical ensemble.

My Good Day NY Segment with Eloquii

Hi Lovies!

Back in April, Eloquii reached out to me and 3 other women asking if we wanted to model their clothes for a Good Day NY segment. Of course I said yes, it's Eloquii, my fav plus size brand! After saying yes, I started to get nervous, I have never been on TV before. I pictured myself falling flat on my face as I walked down or just looking like a goofball in general. My blogger boo Georgette was one of the women asked, so we had each other for moral support. Luckily the segment wasn't being aired live so that eased the anxiety lol.

Mother's Day

Hi Lovies,

Most of my friends and family know that I lost my mother last July to Lupus. It was a long and hard struggle for my Mom due to the fact that the Lupus affected her lungs. She was so strong and such a fighter to the very end. This Mother's Day was the first without her and it was a tough one. But I'm very lucky to have such great family and friends that help eased the pain with their kind and thoughtful words. So instead of spending the day at home sad, I decided to get dressed up in some her favorite colors and spend it with my family. My sister had a nice BBQ at her place and it was just what I needed. We ate, shared stories of our mother and just surrounded each other with love. I couldn't have asked for a better day.

Hawaiian Dreams

Hi Lovies!

I am far from a world traveler but there are many places I want to visit before I kick the bucket. My top destination is the UK (I'm obsessed with the British!) and one of my others is Hawaii. Every time I think of Hawaii, I think of the gorgeous beaches, coconuts, grass skirts and palm trees. So when I saw these Lena Printed Crop Pants from Lane Bryant, my mind was immediately carried off to the island. I fell in  love with the vibrant green palm leaves print as well as the crop length which made them such a fun and casual pant. Perfect for a Saturday brunch with my honey or vacationing on any tropical island lol!

I've Got The Blues

Hi Lovies!

If you're a shopaholic like me, then you tend to stock pile on clothes. Even if it's something off season, but it's a great price, you buy it. Well I have a few things in my closet that I stocked piled and this ASOS Curve Longline Blazer was one of them. I remember seeing it last year and lusting over it. so when I saw it on sale for $30 back in February, I jumped on it! I tucked it away in my closet, anxiously waiting for Spring to arrive so that I could wear it. I finally got to wear it this weekend, TWICE! I love the blue and white floral print, it reminds me of oriental porcelain. It's super comfortable and can be dressed up or down, which I did over the weekend.

Nudes and Neutrals

Hey Lovies!

I love the fact that I am truly a girly girl, I adore all things, dainty, delicate, frilly and frou frou. As of late, I've found myself drawn to delicate nudes and neutral colors. I think they are so feminine and classy, making you look so put together. Not to mention the simplicity of the look as well. So when I saw this top and skirt from Fashion to Figure, I knew I wanted to wear them together. The colors paired so well together to create such a simple but sophisticated look.

Black and Florals

Hi Lovies!

Today I'm bringing you another review for the UK brand Yours Clothing. The first review was on one of their dresses (see here), this one is a little different. As you know I am a total dress/skirt girl, I just love them but I do wear pants or jeans, especially at work. I've been looking for the perfect black skinny jeans and these Super Stretch Skinny Jeans from Yours Clothing are just amazing! They are super soft, comfortable and even though it doesn't say high waist, they fit me as such, which is great. They are also skinny from thigh to ankle, I hate those jeans that claim to be "skinny" and they bag out at the knee or ankle area. I would recommend sizing down because they do have plenty of stretch, also please refer to the size chart since it's UK sizing, I ordered mine in a US20.
