Patchwork

Hi Lovies,

I love when fashion trends or styles of the past make their way back around again. This year alone we've seen so many styles that brought me back to my youth like bomber jackets. shoulder pad and customized denim jackets. One trend that I've been seeing around the fashion scene as of late is patchwork jeans. This pair from Roaman's is totally giving me nostalgia and transporting me back to the 80's. I love the mixture of the light wash and white denim that are so spring like along with the semi boyfriend fit giving off a relaxed fit. You get great versatility with them as they can easily be worn dressed up or down. These are definitely a pair of stylish  jeans that you need in your collection that can be worn all year round.

On Wednesday We Wear Pink

Hi Lovies,

As I've gotten older, I noticed that my style has definitely changed. There are days where I want to be super comfortable and wear a pair of jeans with some sneakers. But then I have my days where I want to be ladylike AF lol. Actually in all honesty this happens more than I want to admit. I love getting dressed up and being as girly as possible. For me wearing pink is synonymous with being a girl and while some might think its cliche, I'm all about it. This Jacquard Drop Waist Dress from the Victoria Beckham x Target collection was the perfect sophisticated lady like dress. If you read my previous post on this collection, then you know that out of all the pieces I bought only 2 worked for me, and this was one of them. This dress was giving me all types of Jackie O vibes, the perfect combo of classic and fashion forward. The drop waist gave the dress a flirty vibe along with the front patch pocket that added such character. The fuchsia color was so bold and vibrant, making this dress such a statement. As a working woman I need clothes that can pull double duty and this is definitely a versatile piece. I can easily wear this from day to night with a quick switch of my accessories and shoes and I'm good to go.

 

When Life Gives You Lemons

Hi Lovies,

Yesterday was Mother's Day and while I am a mother, this day isn't the same for me anymore. This will be my third Mother's Day without my beautiful Mom who was called to Heaven almost 3 years ago. You would think it would get easier but unfortunately for me is hasn't. Losing my Mom was one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal and continue to deal with everyday. So while I am super sad on Mother's Day, I continue to celebrate her memory and thank god for all the wonderful women in my life. Whether their mothers or not, I am thankful for the special role they play in my life. My mom always told me not to live in the past but to embrace what the future has to hold for us, and that's what I do now. I will always continue to miss my mother, that's never going to change, but I will celebrate the now and all the blessings that I have. My heart will remain heavy on this day but it's good to know that I have friends and family to help lighten the weight. 

 

Casual Dressing with Dress Barn

Hi Lovies,

I live for those days where you don't have to put any effort into a look but still want to look cute. Who what of thought that I could find that type of clothing in Dress Barn? When I think of DB, I think of a place I would go to get clothes for work, but it has evolved into so much more. Their DB Sunday line is all about causal, comfy lounge wear pieces that are fashionable as well as functional. This Space-Dye Hoodie was one of my favorite pieces, incredible soft and comfortable. The space-dye print along with the soft peachy coral is so spring. The hood and kangaroo pouch pockets gave this top such an athleisure feel and the short sleeves made it easy to wear for this season. This has easily become one of my favorite tops to grab for the weekend.

Calla Lily

Hi Lovies,

By now I'm sure most of you have seen the Victoria Beckham for Target collection. When I saw a preview of the collection back in February, I fell in love with everything. I couldn't be more happier that the collection came in plus size as well. Not mention the pricing was super reasonable for this kind of collab.  I was drawn to the 60's Mod style, the silhouettes, prints and bold colors that were perfect for the spring. I was one of those folks up super early to grab some of these amazing pieces. Unfortunately none of the Target stores in my area carried the plus sizes so I took a chance with sizing and ordered a bunch of dresses all in size 3X. Surprisingly, my packages arrived within 2 days which never happens when I order from Target. I immediately opened the package and was so happy with the amazing quality of the pieces. But sadly out of six dresses I ordered I only kept two, one being this gorgeous Calla Lily Satin Ruffle Hem Dress

 

Solving My Shapewear Problems With Kohl's

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included shapewear as compensation.


Hey Lovies,

One of the most daunting task for a woman, next to finding a swimsuit, is finding the right shapewear. This can also be a touchy subject for some people, shapewear isn't for everyone and I can totally understand. But this girl here is all about having the proper foundation so that the clothes I wear look amazing on. Now in a perfect world, there would be one shapewear that works with everything. Unfortunately that is not the case, certain articles of clothing require a different type of foundation. Well thank goodness for Kohl's, they had such a great variety of shapewear for all my needs. 

Floral Love

Hi Lovies,

It's hard to believe that this past Saturday was in the upper 80's here in NYC. I could actually pull out my sandals and let me tootsies be free. Not to mention grabbing something floral from my closet that will make a statement as well. You already know my love of bold prints, bright colors and fun florals for the spring/summer seasons. Finding a fun floral is not always easy but when you do, definitely take advantage especially when you can find in one of your fav silhouettes. The Kate Dress from Roaman's was the perfect addition to my wardrobe for the season. The shirt dress design along with the beautiful blue floral print made this such a lively dress. I love the structure feel of it and how easy it was to wear with the flattering trapeze style fit. The versatility of this dress makes it easy to wear in so many ways. Whether you wear it for work or play, this dress will definitely be a head turner.
