Pure Luxury | OOTD

Sometimes luxury is a crazy comfortable graphic tee, a pair of thrifted Levi’s, your most comfortable pair of heels, and your tried and true moto jacket. I mean seriously, when you need to look like you “tried” to pull yourself together but you really just feel like “jeans and a t-shirt” a look like this will work every time.

My friends over at Richly Clad have some of the best graphic t-shirts around. All of my favorites come from there and they’re so soft you could sleep in them. This one is no different. My “Pure Luxury” athletic gray t-shirt is everything I need and more. It dresses up a bit, dressing way down, and has all of the comfort you could ever want. As for my jeans, I thrifted a pair of vintage mom Levi’s a while ago and they’re so awesome, I could sleep in those too! Curse the people who starting the low rise denim trends. I like my jeans high with deep pockets. Lol

The sweetest thing about this look is the necklace. My dad got it for me for Christmas this year and said, I know you don’t need anything but this is what I thought a classy lady would wear. I was so impressed and happy to know that he wants to be apart of my fashion adventures. As for the hat and heels, they are totally optional. This looks works well even wit out them but I’m kind of in love with this hat!

Leave me a comment about your “jeans and t-shirt” look. Enjoy!

Keeping It Casual | OOTD

Happy Fri-Yay! Today’s OOTD is quite simple and what I’d call, the epitome of casual style. Thanks to this Zaful.com for sponsoring this sweet shirt and Shein.com for sponsoring this ultra cool hat!

It means throwing on a comfy pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, a loose button down with cute details, adding in your favorite pair of sneakers, and topping it off with a cool fedora hat. If I could wake up every morning and wear this same exact outfit, I would. It’s safe to say this will be one of my new go to looks for all things casual.

Color Blocked + Beauty Secrets| OOTD 

Before I talk about more of my beauty regimens, let’s talk fashion! I’m a busy mom and elementary school teacher with a million things to do. There are mornings when I encourage my three year old to grab his own snacks (pre-washed fruit) from the refrigerator because I can’t peel myself off of the sofa. Lol This color blocked OOTD if for these moments.

OOTD

We will always have those events that creep up on us or have days when we don’t have the energy to put a lot of thought into an outfit. When those days arise it is great to have a “matching set” to throw on and run out of the door. This black and white color blocked set sponsored by DressLily.com is perfect for those moments. The diagonal color blocking design adds some interest to an otherwise basic look. The pockets on the pants have a white insert to help them pop a bit more too. I always like to have a bold element in all of my looks so I went for a fuzzy red purse this time. Don’t  be surprised if people start petting your purse! Lol

Beauty

Hair– I know, you must be thinking I don’t need much when it come to the hair department and your’e right. I don’t need a lot of product but I don’t need the right stuff! I’m finding so much success Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk line. It leaves my hair soft and shiny and my scalp moisturized. That’s all I need in my life right now. Lol

Skincare– I went to a bloggers brunch to learn more about Japanese skincare line Decorte. The science behind these product is freaking amazing (It uses Onsen LIVING WATER) and it smells divine. I honestly dragged my feet on starting this regimen because I knew I would fall in love with it quickly, yet the thought of replacing it once I ran out was troubling. Lol

I took the leap, and I freaking love it! I leaves my skin so soft, plump and smooth. That’s not east for my acne prone skin so I was super surprised at the results. I guess I’m hooked 🙂 You can find Decorte exclusively at Saks!

NYE with Inclan + Hungry’s | OOTD

What if you showed up in this fun navy fuzzy dress and wine colored hooded coat from Inclan, to Hungry’s grand opening to Upstairs on New Year’s Eve?!? Sounds like a slam dunk to me, plus you’d be supporting two Houston based businesses at the same time 🙂

The new Upstairs is having its grand opening on a very special day. Join the wonderful staff at Hungry’s Upstairs for a fun New Year’s Eve celebration. I’ve already previewed the space and sampled the food for you so trust me when I say you won’t be disappointed. The entire space is new and beautiful but you will especially enjoy the views Upstairs. If your’e still looking for something fun to do for NYE, reserve your spot at Upstairs! 

When you walk into Hungry’s Upstairs go in true style with Inclan. This textured dress is making a statement as you enter the new year. It says , “I’m bold, confident, and ready to take on the world.” To top it all off, the rich wine color of their hooded coat will keep you cozy on the Upstairs balcony.

Velvety New Year | OOTD

A new year is upon us and we know a fabulous outfit won’t just plan itself. Ha ha! I’m so happy to bring you some New Year Eve inspiration this year! Although what we wear on NYE is important, the focus of this NYE look in how you want to feel.  

While I’m out enjoying my loved ones and bringing in the new year I want to feel carefree and fearless. For me being carefree often equates to being braless. Lol You may be a bit self conscience at first but at least you wont have to spend the hold night readjusting a strapless bra. This greenish black velvet dress is sexy with out showing too much and even a bit mysterious. It has a criss cross strappy back that adds interest to an otherwise simple dress. The dress is one piece so no need to worry about multiple items. All you have left is to add shoes and some simple accessories. Knowing Texas it will either be absolutely freezing or sweltering hot so be prepared to have a jacket of some kind. I actually thrifted the faux fur you see here for about $10. Needless to say I felt so lucky finding a practically new faux fur in black! I couldn’t pass it up.

Lastly, I know it’s tempting to break out a new pair of shoes but for your comfort, choose a tried and true shoe that you’ve broken in already. You won’t want to dance all night if your feet hurt.

Leave me a comment about your favorite New Year Eve Look. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.  Enjoy!

Metallic skirt

If you don’t have a metallic piece in your closet yet, your’e missing out on a lot of fun! This metallic skirt is versatile and can go casual or dressy. This skirt goes to work, holiday parties, and out for a night on the town. You can find them is many tones and different colors to match your style. Gold happens to be my metal so I fell in love with this one instantly.

When styling this OOTD I chose a casual look and paired it with one of my tried and true sweatshirts that I’ve had for over three years. The truth is any cool graphic sweatshirt will work.  Next, I added in my trusty comfortable black converse and my old faux leather jacket. As you can see this OOTD is super simple to put together but makes a big impact. It also helps you to remember how important it is to have staple pieces in your closet. I’ve created a completely new look with only one new pleated metallic skirt. I call that a victory yall!

Statement Earrings + Boyfriend Jeans | OOTD

So you found a pair of ultra fabulous statement earrings, but you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed when it comes to actually wearing them. I know the feeling all too well. It’s the holiday season so I come bearing fashion advice as your early gift.

These unique Teal Fringe earrings are sponsored by E. Turner Couture’s Holiday Collection. They are colorful, big and bold. Not only are they beautifully made but they are the mother of fringe earrings with three full sections of quality material. I will always say that when you want to show off a statement piece keep everything else super simple. That way when people see you, their eyes got to you and your statement. Everything else can be “background” features.

For this look I kept all of the other colors pretty muted to let my earrings shine. My sweater has a lot of interesting features but it doesn’t over power what I want to show off. The perfect pair of boyfriend jeans, simple booties, cute purse, and I’m ready to show off my earrings and cool sweater to the world. Leave me comment about your favorite statement piece. Enjoy!

Powder Pink + Polka dots | OOTD

I’ve fallen in love with this powder pink & polka dot look over and over again because of its subtle yet bold statement. Some folks may think that a bold piece has to be bright, patterned or textured. While those all create bold looks, there are more ways to reach this same goal.

This polka dot top with flared layered sleeves is sponsored by Shein.com and boy is it what this look needs! It’s hard to go wrong with classic black and white polka dots but you can obviously see that this is no ordinary top. The white denim pants and black zip up booties compliment the top while another star shines. This light pink over coat is a real show stopper. I adore that the pink is so light people will have to stare at you to figure out its true color. It has an oversized fit in a classic style. What more can you ask for? Oh yeah, for it to actually get cold enough to wear it!

OOTD |Unique Blazer & Denim Jumper

Any time I get dressed or go shopping the first thing that crosses my mind is “Will this be comfortable?”  This OOTD is not only comfy but it is really versatile.

I adore comfortable jumpers in general but this light denim is just right for spring. It’s on trend with a wide leg opening and has spaghetti straps for a warmer Houston day. I would wear the jumper as is with my converse for running errands and chasing Grant around. If I wanted to take this jumper to a more evening look, I would style it with a unique blazer and a nice high heel (As pictured) .

Let’s give this blazer its own moment! It’s a beautiful navy color, covered in black tassels with black lapels for the accent. This blazer would be a conversation piece any where you go, and especially at a fashion event! This blazer is definitely for the bold woman who has a uncommon fashion style and doesn’t mind standing out. If you are smitten over this click on over to Jaided325 to get this look.

Leave comments and give me your thoughts about this OOTD, Enjoy!
