Ok, so this is the closest that I could get to a "fall transition" look because it is a million degrees in Cali! It is definitely still feeling like summer out here. In fact, this is the hottest it's been all season! So, it's looking like most of my outfits will still have a little bit of summer flair to least for a little while lol. If you have followed me for some time, you know that I absolutely love these type of crop tops with the long tie in the front. I was actually doing make-shift "crop tops" like this from oversized button-up tops before these newer tops started trending. They are so cute and sexy. I just love the style!

Most of them have a pretty low cut in the cleavage area, so I decided to pair this top with a ultra sexy cage bra to give it some extra edge and I am so glad that I did! It gave it that extra umph that I was looking for instead of having a normal bra showing or covering it up with a cami. I finished off the look with a perfect pair of lightly distressed jeans and nude heels.

I hope that you enjoyed this look and have a great Labor Day weekend!

Much love,

I don't know what it is about lime but I absolutely love the color! Even though we are approaching the end of summer it is a fun lively color that I would wear well into Fall and beyond. In today's look I am rocking a sultry dress with tulip draped detailing that is super sexy and very flattering, if I do say so myself. The cut of the dress pulls the waist in while the draping conceals the tummy area. I did not wear any shapewear in this look! Just a good strapless bra :)

You could wear this look for a night on the town or a dinner date. Whatever you choose you will definitely demand the attention of the room!

Mustard has got to be, literally, one of my absolute favorite colors to wear! It's less flashy than classic yellow,  but still definitely adds a punch of color, making it more versitale and chic. In this look, I tied up a gorgeous mustard off-the-shoulder top to create a make-shift crop top and add some edge.

I finished off the look with a perfect pair of distressed jeans that fit just right fit, pink mirrored sunnies and neutral accessories to allow the outfit to be the focal point. This look is perfect for summer as we transition into the fall months.

Tip: Add a printed scarf to your outfit to give your look an extra dose of style and to add some boho flair!

Hey yall! It's back to school season! So, I thought that I would bring you a little outfit inspiration :) Whether you are in high school, undergrad, or grad school..its unanimous that everyone wants to be comfy while in hustling to class. A great sweatsuit or comfy jeans definitely does the trick. I would keep the colors light, like in this blush look, and gradually get darker as I ease into that fall.

A cute pair of shades can mask any perfections when you don't feel like wearing makeup and prove to be a girls best friend on those tired-lazy days.

I hope you like this look and that you week is off to a great start! Happy Tuesday :)

Did I ever think in a million years that I would be going to the Hamptons this summer?! No friggin' way! When my friends at Catherines reached out to me with an opportunity to see the vacation spot to the stars, mansions out of this world and dabble in a little fashion, while I was at it, you know I was on the first plane smoking right??

From the very first day, we were laughing non-stop! My boo's Meaghan from Little Lime Dress and Sarah from Curvily were the absolute sweetest and funnest people to be around! We whipped out the games, cranked out the jokes and ate some ah-mazing food. Ahhhh..the food. Oh-em-ghee when I tell you that we had thee best BBQ ever! I am not joking! I didn't know the Hamptons could throw down like that lol. Fried mac n' cheese and everything!

After eating we went straight to pool. We couldn't help it. It was calling us. Fun floaties and super cute bathing suits? How could we resist? My bathing suit was black and white with a beautiful floral print that added a little depth and contrast. I paired it with a crochet-trimmed cover up that you could tie in the front or keep open to showcase your full look. I loved the way it looked, fit and it was also ultra comfy! #Winning

On day two I got my Titanic on! lol Well kinda. We went fishing! For me, this was an absolute first. I had never been fishing before, let alone what I would consider deep-sea fishing. We were treated like movie stars aboard a private yacht with private fishing lessons and pictures snapping left and right. So Hamptons darling! 

Even though we didn't know that we were going fishing until right before, the look that I put together went perfect for the day. A lightweight white top and super comfy jeans made for a classic nautical look fit for a Hampton-aire!

And what's a night out without a little black dress? I put a spin on the typical LBD with a form fitting top with sleek cut-out detailing and a figure flattering wrap skirt for the perfect alternative!

As we strolled downtown Hamptons on our last day, I strutted my stuff in Catherines Curvy Collection "Hourglass" dress. And it definitely lived up to its name! It hugs your curves just right and is SUPER flattering. I'll let you in on a little secret...I wore absolutely no shape wear with this dress and it STILL had my curves fleeky! So, listen when I tell you that this dress is a must-have!

To say I had fun, would be an absolute understatement. The people, the clothes, the environment, the food - I mean, everything was perfect! Truly. Honestly. I could not have had a better time and feel so blessed to have had this experience to share with you! Thanks Catherines!

Ps. You can shop all of my looks here! And today is a perfect day to do so because almost everything is on sale! Thank me later! Xo
