Sexy Summer Maxi Dress

This striped maxi dress is a little more amped up than your regular maxi dress. This one took me a little more to get used to just because I couldn’t wear a bra with it, you will have to wear nipple tape or some sort of backless and strapless bra. A sticky bra will probably be best if you need or want to wear a bra with this dress because there is major side boob, lol. I do love the fact that the dress is long. So wearing heels is a great option if you’re shorter because it will still run long. It’s flowy yet form fitted, has slits on both sides and has cute string detailing in the back. It’s great for a lunch date with friends or a date with bae. You can dress it down for daytime with sandals like I did and dress it up with heels and jewelry for nightlife.

I also love that you can wear this all summer long and then throw a leather or jean jacket on for fall weather so its versatile as well. With an under $20 price tag it’s no wonder this sells out quick. The stripes are a medium size and are Navy in color, perfect for that nautical feel and the fabric is a nice breathable, stretch material.

I’ve said before that I love Laura’s Boutique because they’re so affordable and also have sales or a coupon code quite often so you can save even more. I’ve ordered from them multiple times and I’m still never disappointed.

The Romper You Need This Summer

I’ve been loving striped clothing lately. Such a nautical and summery style. This off the shoulder romper gives such a cute and flirty style while still being casual enough for day to day errands. You’ll notice on my blog I go for not only functionality and comfort but how well my outfits work while wrangling kids all day, lol.

I’m always a little skeptical when ordering online or even buying rompers in-store because I don’t know how they will fit since I am tall. I’ve had some rompers that were literal underwear on me, lol. (So disappointing for us tall girls) but this romper fit so well I was surprised. It’s not too short in the bottoms so it covers my butt. I don’t feel uncomfortable or like everything is hanging out. The material has a little stretch but still fits nicely.

You can wear it with so many options, sneakers for a casual vide, sandals for a little more casual cute or heels for a night out. I’m currently on the hunt for the perfect black heel that goes with everything. But I paired this one with 2 sneaker options for a more casual feel.

Best Summer Dress 2018

I love off the shoulder dresses. I love even more when the color makes my complexion pop. So it was a no brainer that I ordered this when I saw it on Lauras Boutique website. This mustard yellow Aria dress is perfect for that fresh deep tan. I love mustard and gold tones on a deeper skin tones. It’s rich color and ruffle top make it much more dressed up and flirty without even trying. It’s a flowy material which is perfect if you’re out in the Florida sun like I am on a daily. It’s loose, slight stretch fit makes it comfortable to wear, it just falls over your body effortlessly.

What makes this dress even better is its price. Only $17! I styled mine with my white and gold Chuck Taylors to add a more casual vibe. My tan faux leather crossbody bag is the cutest thing and fits my essentials when I don’t want to carry a backpack or large purse for the day. My clear lens frames are adorable and ONLY $5!

Is It Fall Yet? Fall Outfit Inspiration!

I know, I know it’s still summer and I live in Florida. But I was born during a blizzard in Iceland and then lived up north for some years before landing in Florida and I’ve experienced all the seasons. My favorite seasons are Spring and Fall because you literally only need a light jacket or cute fall outfit and you’re good to go, it’s not too hot and not too cold. (Name that movie line reference, lol) Literally perfect weather.

With all the Nordstrom sale fun I decided to change things up a bit and style a fall outfit to shoot. (I took one for the team because OMG it was hot outside, lol.) But I’m in love with this oversized sweater dress from Pretty Little Thing it’s not too heavy in material so it can be layered or worn alone for a light fall look. You can also mix it up and wear it with sneakers instead of boots but I was in a fall mood so I had to wear my knee high boots.

My boots are so comfortable and versatile. They can be worn with dresses, skirts, shorts and even over jeans. I’ve had them for years and they still look and feel great. My bag is the perfect fall tote and I love its oversized style. Perfect for all my snacks I’ll need while I’m running around like crazy this school year. I can even fit a bottle of wine in there. That’s right I checked, you’re welcome. 😉

Brigitte Brianna Baseball Dress

What’s better than a dress? A dress with pockets, lol. I love dresses in the summer time. I really like them all year round but especially in the Florida summer heat a dress can be a life saver. Less clothing to put on and your outfit is complete with just one piece. I’m always nervous to try a new online site especially when I don’t know any other long limbed ladies to base size and length off of. But on Sexy Modest there’s size references for the models so it helps a ton when shopping. This fun dress is the baseball dress and it sells out quick. I was trying to order the grey one too and it was sold out (cry face emoji, lol).

It fits perfect and has a drawstring waist so you can adjust it to fit your length and waist. It’s a soft breathable material and the pockets are pretty deep. I’ve fit keys, phone, lipstick, toys. You name it the pockets have held it. No need for a purse with this one, lol. The best part is it’s under $40, machine washable and fits either just below or just above the knee depending on how you tie the drawstring. I wear it tied above the waist so it looks like a top and skirt.

Flirty Off The Shoulder Style

 

I love black. Half my wardrobe consists of black tops and bottoms. Maybe it’s the cosmetologist in me or just the fact that black looks good on anyone. I find it so easy to pair black with anything but sometimes you don’t want it to look like you’re in mourning or depressed so I like to find black tops that can be flirty as well. This top from Sirens did that perfectly. From the cute detail of the top and the fact that it’s a bodysuit so it won’t bunch up in your pants or skirt. It just adds an extra flair to the outfit. I love the design of the bow slides as well because it brings a cute and fun detail to the outfit. My jeans from Fashion Nova are distressed boyfriend jeans, they’re so comfortable and have a nice loose fit without being too baggy and they were under $40. I wore this to a casual dinner with the family and got so many compliments on such a simple outfit. What are your favorite colors? Do you have a more neutral palette? I hope you beauties are having a lovely day.

Flirty Blush Pink Style

It’s hot in Florida and I do mean HOT! Yesterday my car read 102 degrees outside temperature (insert gasps for air, lol). I love blush pink. Pink in general has been one of my favorite colors forever. But when I saw this top at Sirens I had to grab it. It’s blush pink and off the shoulder so 2 things I adore, lol. The shorts are from the Time and Tru line at Walmart and they’re so cute and comfy. A mid rise fit with slight distressing in the detail. They have different colors to choose from so you have different options for multiple outfit choices. The best thing out of the whole outfit is how affordable everything was. All together the entire outfit with top, shorts and sneakers included was under $50. I am always here for a bargain especially when I have three kids to chase after and buy for, so when I see a cute outfit for myself that’s both affordable and cute I’ll grab it.

Adventures in Camo

I love a good sale. But like an actual one not like just 10% off because unless it’s a large priced item 10% is really like the tax off on your item to me, lol. But Sirens was having an awesome sale of 40% off the entire store so I had to jump in. Being a mom of 3 if I do actually get myself something it’s rare because I always end up getting things for my kids instead (which I ended up getting some things for my oldest daughter too, lol) and completely forget about myself. But I’ve been trying to revamp my wardrobe and be a little more comfortable in my mom bod until I can get back in the gym. So I wanted to get a few cute things to wear.

I got this outfit because it’s stylist but still comfy. I love dresses, especially in spring and summer time because they’re easy to put on and you don’t have to worry about putting an outfit together. It’s one piece and you just get dressed and go. I could throw a jacket, cardigan or duster on over it and style it how I want. This cropped and distressed camo jacket is so cute and it’s stretchy material made it comfortable to wear.

My bag is from avenue and it’s so cute and easy to carry. I can put the things I need in it but don’t have a big bag I have to carry around with me. My sneakers from Sirens are so comfy and cute. I actually picked them up in 3 different colors. But black sneakers are a must for me because they go with literally everything. I think the gold detailing adds a trendy touch to them as well.

What are some sales you couldn’t pass up this past month? Where’s your favorite trendy and affordable places to shop? I hope you loves have an awesome Monday.

I love a good makeup day. Especially when you get new makeup and you just want to play all day. The products I used are my most used products lately. I just keep

    Live In Jeans 

    I could literally live in a comfy pair of jeans. Easy to style, comfy and they fit well. It’s like a dream. Especially for me because I have long legs and a little bubble butt so it’s hard to find jeans that have a good fit at the top and bottom, lol. 
      

    So when I discovered Fashion Nova  after many, many other people kept talking about them. I decided why not try them out, lol. These boyfriend jeans are literally everything. I’m pretty sure I’m going to purchase another pair because they are just so awesome. They fit well. They are loose but not baggy and they are the soft lived in distressed denim that I love. 
      

    My sneakers are awesome too. I got these from Just Fab and I love them. They are just my style and they come in white too. My bodysuit is from Forever 21 and I’m loving bodysuits right now because it’s just like having a tucked in shirt without having it ride up or pop out. 

       
       

    What’s your favorite comfy style to wear? Do you prefer heels or sneakers with it? For me it all depends on the outfit and where I’m going. But for hump day, these boyfriend jeans, sneakers and a plain black top work just fine for me. I hope you are having an awesome Wednesday. We are halfway through the week. WOO HOO!!
