barbie girl

obviously I have a serious love of all things leopard, I don't think i've ever met a print I didn't like, and these snow leopard trousers are no exception.  beyond the fact that they're my favorite color, they're insanely comfortable, like never want to take them off comfortable!  and incredibly cute!  I guess i've been in a bit of a black and white mood lately. Per Mondays post, and I'm currently wearing the combo again today. I do love the clean look the 2 provide, but you know I gotta break it up with a pop or 2 of color, so pink was my poison for this look. I love these graphics from forever, and being the blondie that I am, I couldn't pass up this Barbie print. I added a bit more pink with my sunnies and clutch and slung my 2 tone leather over my shoulders.

ok, so initially when I saw this tank I thought it would be ironic for me to wear.  I mean, lets face it, my style is far from simplistic, but I do enjoy simplicity in life.  I did try so very hard to take note from my tank and keep my outfit simple and understated, but still very me.  I went with a black and white canvas, pairing my absolute favorite pair of jeans with this fab tuxedo vest.  I know some of you may be thinking, white denim, really??  yes really!!  white jeans are an absolute must have for fall, just make sure they're a thicker denim, and this pair has these killer zippers (reason numero uno why they are my fave) which makes them a bit more rocker and totally seasonless.  my sunnies kept with the black + white vibe and I added some primary pops of color with my blue clutch and red pumps.  I actually DID go for simplicity with my baubles and wore this classic chain necklace and my everyday watch.  plus a few rings, or 4 or 5, but they don't really count.
hope y'all have a fabulous Monday!!

 I must start by apologizing, because I feel like i've been phoning it in lately and focusing more on getting a post live than actually putting the time in to talking about my looks.  as I said on Monday, so much has happened over the last few months, and its been hard to juggle.  I do so much appreciate all your support and patience.  with that said, lets talk fashion!!
as women, it is a daily struggle to love ourselves and embrace our bodies.  I know for myself, looking good makes me feel good, so putting in the extra effort to fix my hair and put on some lipstick can make all the difference.  but I still have my days where nothing looks good, I feel bloated, my skin is broken out, etc etc.  you see how we beat ourselves up??  we will always have bad days, but i try to remind myself, this is the body God gave me, it is able, it is strong, it has given me 2 of the most gorgeous boys i could ever dream of calling my own and my flaws are what makes me unique.  there is no other you, you are irreplaceable and you are beautiful!!  remember that ladies!! 
so todays look is all about embracing myself and my body.  i love my rocker persona, but underneath the sunnies and bold lips, i am just a girl.
 i love a good midi skirt, i feel like they suck you in and keep you classy while still showing off your feminine physique.  this high-waisted style is the perfect shade of blush and i just love the front slit.  i paired it with this pearl embellished blouse for a monochromatic look and strapped on my faux studs.  this is my nude.  every girl has their shade and most fall in the tan family, but i myself am extremely pale, and even with the help of a spray tan (which i always have!  so yes, this is me tan!) my natural complexion is that of a pinky hue. 
i challenge you, to embrace the body you were given!  find styles that flatter and make you feel like the best possible you!!

happy Monday beauties!!!
I apologize for the sporadic postings over the past month, so much has been happening, and I will fill you all in soon, but I promise to get back to my regular schedule and in the meantime, thank you so much for bearing with me. 
todays look is an easy go-to fall combo for me.  when I want to dress my fave combo of a rocker tee and mini or midi skirt, I switch out the tee for a blouse and leave off the topper.  this blouse is so cute and fun and makes me feel a bit British, or maybe that's just this cute little step up behind me, but either way, I embraced the mod appeal and paired it with this asymmetrical leather mini and cap toe booties.  I added a few gold accessories and a red lip.
I hope y'all have a fabulous week!  and if your local, be sure to swing by the mount pleasant towne centre this Thursday!!  I will be hosting a men's styling event at the new Men's Belk Store!
more dets tomorrow, hope to see you all there!!
