How to Rock a Slip Dress!

Hey Babes!

So it’s been such a weird time trying to figure out what day it is most days lol! However, I have been trying to keep busy by still trying out Spring trends, making my own etc! I have decided to show you how to style a slip dress for day!

To wear a piece like this and not have it look like you’re walking  a Victoria’s Secret runway is by pairing it with chic accessories and structured pieces!

I paired this vintage slip with pumps and an oversized pink jacket, I added a baseball hat to finish off the look!

Dress Your Best!

Hey Babes!

So I hope you are all hanging in there! I’ve decided to continue my theme of Wear The Dress! I love wearing dresses, I’m super girly at heart so when I go to my closet it’s usually the first thing I’ll reach for. With that being said I have a ton of dresses and some super fancy ones too, which leads me to beg the question of when do I wear it?!

The dress I decided to wear just because is one that has been sitting in my closet since before Thanksgiving. I was originally going to wear it for Thanksgiving and then I decided to wear something completely different. I love the flow and light weight feel! It’s a maxi that is definitely best suited for warm weather!

I purchased this dress on sale for $150 from Free People. It’s by Jen’s Pirate Booty

And it’s currently still for sale on their site! However, it’s gone back to its original price of $198.

Wear The Dress!

Hey dolls!

Today, I decided to wear one of my favorite dresses! I know the dress is a bit “extra” for a casual outing but I love it! I have had this dress for probably 8 years sitting in my closet brand new for all that time! I wore it for the first time for my latest round of maternity pics and have been trying to find the “perfect” time to wear it again ever since. However, now that we have to all be at home and there aren’t any restaurants or malls, etc open there isn’t anywhere “special” to wear it to! That’s when I decided special is any day and every day!

Stop waiting for the perfect time to wear something. The perfect time doesn’t exist! The perfect time is anytime. You are special so that’s reason enough to wear your favorite outfit! This quarantine has taught me to appreciate the little things even more so than I already did and to not take things like wearing my favorite outfit for granted.

So today I’m here to tell you wear the dress, blazer, shoes or whatever special thing you’ve been waiting to wear! There’s usually always a way to make it work for day!

For example, on its own my dress is pretty fancy, however, paired with this plaid top and flats it makes it a bit more approachable for day!

Layers Like a Cake! 🎂

One of my fave things to do is layer my clothing! When I think of layering I think of it like baking a delicious layered cake. To make a  layered cake the pieces have to come together in harmony and the flavors have to mesh well. The same thing is the case with layering clothing. You have to put together layers that are cohesive that have depth and character.

For this Spring layered look I took light pieces that had depth yet would still not be overpowering or that would not get too hot!

8A9B043F-0812-46CE-98BD-FAD822AA5D56

The layers are:

 a light dress-Zara

A lace see-through dress- Free People

And a long Spring Jacket-Vintage

I picked fun colors that are light and exude a sense of light and Spring time sophistication!

When layering for Spring and Summer make sure the pieces are light in fabrics for color to give off the correct vibe!

Have a Fabulous Day Dolls!!

Florals, Florals, Florals!

Florals, Florals, Florals!

Nothing says Spring like sporting Florals! It’s timeless and fresh and just screams Spring.

Florals feel like a renewal of fresh and bright things to come! 

As you all should know by now, I’m in love with all things vintage, from furniture to clothing, vintage is for me! It’s a great way to reuse what we have and be chic at the same time!

I’ve paired my vintage floral dress with my signature red pumps and a baseball hat to make this fancy dress more casual! 

Usually I have my vintage finds for sale in my boutique, however this time I fell in love and kept the dress!

Here is a similar style!

Literally Borrowed From The Boys: Men’s Blazer!

Hey dolls!

How are you all doing? I hope well. I hope you are finding things to occupy your time while social distancing. I am definitely sad about not being able to do certain things, however I know how important it is to keep social distancing so that we can protect people, especially those that are high risk! I myself am high risk- I have asthma.

Now on to the fashion! I am on a vintage kick and I’m loving all things vintage. I found this super chic men’s blazer that I knew would look great worn oversized! I am styling this two ways: Casual and Dressy!

Pastel Pants!

Hello Babes!

I hope you all are doing well and staying safe! I know it’s an incredibly difficult time now but I hope you all are keeping positive. I am in the vulnerable category because of my asthma so I’ve been inside for a week. I thought I might as well Blog and inspire you all with some Spring Fashion!

While it is technically Spring, it still is on the chillier side but pastel colored pants bring the Spring time Vibes no matter the weather!

I have paired these pants a few different ways to show you how to embrace Spring in the midst of the cooler weather!

Valentine’s Day- I’m Seeing Red!

Hey dolls!

As I’m sure you’re well aware Valentine’s Day is next Friday! Which for one thing, how exciting is it to have all the major holidays on the weekend! I know some people aren’t on a traditional schedule. However , I’m super excited to have Valentine’s Day on a Friday! It’s just something about having it on the weekend that makes it better! I have put together a couple of outfits that would be awesome for the day of love! Remember you don’t have to have a significant other to celebrate love! You can celebrate with your kids by showering them with parental affection or celebrate with your best friend at your favorite restaurant or by seeing a movie with your tribe!

As you’ll see I choose to add my touch of Red by wearing Red pumps! I however am all for wearing a red dress on Valentine’s Day as well!
