Hey there! Have you ever shopped for something for so long and just when you are about to give up you find it? Your aggravation turned into excitement instantly!  That was me with trying to find a maxi dress that fit into my casual lifestyle.  I wanted a maxi dress that was cotton, casual, comfortable and had a really cute fit.  I should also mention that my hunt lasted a year!  I found a dress last year at J Crew that I wanted so badly and it sold out before I ever saw it.  Lo and behold the same dress came back in stock this year and was 40% off! I immediately purchased it online and it was soooo perfect! I recently took a trip…

Hey! Have you bought a fun jumpsuit for the spring season yet!?  I found one that was perfect for my style and want to show you how I styled it!  Hopefully this will give you inspiration to style one for yourself!  The jumpsuit I chose is a sporty style because I have been there and done the wide leg dressy one.  This one I can actually wear during the day and its is super casual BUT I can also wear it a little dressy if I wanted to! You know versatility is key for me!  I also want to add that this jumpsuit was shown in my first post about jumpsuits called 6 Reasons You Should Give Jumpsuits a Chance.  I hope you will check…

Hey there!  We are getting so close to spring that I hope you have cleaned out your closet and know exactly what you need to purchase.  If not, check out my post here to get started!  Today I want to talk about a BIG trend for this season that you would enjoy having in your wardrobe.  This trend has been around for a few seasons but has returned in epic proportions for spring 2019! It is the jumpsuit! Jumpsuits may not be for everyone but I am here to give you six reasons why you should give jumpsuits a chance. The style options for jumpsuits this season is seemingly endless. Since there are so many options available you can more than likely find one that…

Hello ladies! I hope you will read this with an open mind! I promise you will be running out to buy shorter tops in no time! The crop top trend is back in a big way and I think there is a tasteful way for all of us, at any age, to style this trend. I will say there are crop tops and then there are CROP tops, if you know what I mean. The wearable version is called an abbreviated length and is a little bit longer than a crop top.  This is what I am going to be talking about today. Years ago we went through a trend of tops getting longer and the rise of pants/jeans getting lower.  You probably remember this…

Hey ladies! I hope you are getting as excited as I am for spring to get here! I don’t get as excited about spring clothing as I do for the fall season but I certainly am ready for warmer weather and sandals! I want to help you find the essentials you will need for a great spring wardrobe. These essentials are just basics that are the “canvas” for your wardrobe. Think of it like a painting.  You start with a canvas and build on it to make your picture from there.  You can not build the picture without the canvas.  Similarly you can not build a functional wardrobe without the basic “canvas” pieces. For your essentials I am going to give you suggestions to create…

Hey there! I hope you had a great start to the new year! I know lots of you, including me, probably have new goals for 2019 and it probably involves exercising and eating better.  One of my goals is to get into better shape and I have actually been working on this for a couple of years. It is a long process and I want to take myself to the next level. I have been taking Barre3 online classes for the past few years now and I finally joined a real barre studio! Yay!  It is called NEIGHBORHOOD barre and is by far the best workout I have ever done!  I have a goal to take 4 to 5 classes a week and each class…

Hey y’all!  I hope you are having a great week! Most of you that know me would be able to name my absolute favorite piece of clothing! Can you take a guess?  A blazer/jacket of course!  I only own a gazillion of them! The thing that I have never been a big fan of is cardigans. I have stepped out of my jacket comfort zone and actually purchased a couple this season! I even purchased a cardigan vest thing, lol!  I have to say they are nice to have when you want something a little more casual and comfy. I wanted to have fun with this Flat Lay to Life-Styled post and bring you two outfits of me in a jacket and two in a…
