Summer is all about keeping cool. DRESS for the occassion!

I have this obsession with dresses. I always feel super sexy in one, no matter the style. I’ve always loved dresses. They have been a staple of my wardrobe for years. I think the best thing about dresses is that it is one piece. So easy and simply, find the right shoes and you’re good to go. In the summer it is essential for me to find the easiest things to throw on. My patience with this heat is thin, lol.  The best thing about a dress is the ease of it.

 

Recently I added these two beauties to the list. They are of similar style but different flair. This white dress with the black and white off the shoulder look is so comfortable. I love how easy flowing this dress is. This dress will be in my top 5 dresses for the summer. It is fun, cute and easy to style. you can find it at Amiclubwear.com. 

The shoes can be found at Justfab.com

A similar bag from the same seller can be found Lovecortnie.com Now… the style of these dresses aren’t my everyday go to . So I was a bit nervous, but if you read my last post you will see that, I wanted to take a chance on my fashion this summer. I have been really boring with my fashion choices and I wanted to get back to the old me, The girl that went outside the box a bit. I enjoyed this dress a lot, it has a lot of layers. It is off the shoulder ( of course) , but it also is Asymmetrical on the bottom and is lace. This dress is the perfect LBD it can be found Amiclubwear.com

similar shoes can be found at Shoedazzle.com

The bag can be found http://lovecortnie.com/clutches/

The off the shoulder look is something I rocked years ago but wasn’t quite sure if I could work it now. I paired both of these dresses with bright shoes to accent the style. I must say I was quite happy with the end result.

Fashion Trends?

Fashion is something that’s always revolving and evolving. Seeing trends from the past now being what’s “in” is always pretty nice, especially if you still have items from that time.

Personal style is one of those things that can be a hit with certain people and a miss with others. My personal style is all over the place. In general… I like what I like. One day I can rock a look that is 50’s inspired the next I will rock a pair one distressed jeans (something I’ve been rocking for yearsssss) and a tee for me, my person style has no definition or description.

As I get older, I notice that I’ve become a little “safer” with my choices. This is a big jump from my looks years ago. I felt like I was becoming slightly boring in my style choices. So, I recently decided to take a chance… I wore something that I don’t usually wear but I liked and was excited to try out.

Wearing this low V neck jumper suit was a HUGE chance for me. I was nervous because I am a legs girl. Not only that, but i have recently gained a few pounds and this jumpsuit left almost nothing to the imagination,lol. I of course used double sided tape. I got this in a medium and it fit perfect!

Life in Gwinnett

Many of my readers know I moved to Georgia almost 2 years ago. I live in Gwinnett county which is a mix of city and county. I am a foodie and I am always looking for a great place to eat. Customer service is always important to me. I’ve tried out many places around my area. One of the place I went to is called Wayback burgers. Being from New York, I never heard of this place so I was intrigued to try it. This place was one of those that I not only enjoyed food wise but, the customer service was amazing.

Wayback Burgers is located at 1030 Old Peachtree Rd NW, Lawrenceville, GA 30043

The OWNER and person who served me is named Wayman. He was amazing, nice and really active. It’s rare to see the owner actually working, it was refreshing

I went for a casual look with this denim jacket, jeans and open toe booties on my visit.I decided to get the double bacon and French fries. It was DELICIOUS! I also decided to get a strawberry banana milk shake which was amazingly good.They serves a variety of things, it was so hard for me to choose!If you’re ever in the area stop by this establishment, tell them Myisha sent you!

Spring Fling- My Love For Maxi Dresses

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. As i tell my preschool class, The flowers start to bloom, and the birds start to sing. I Also love the weather, one of my favorite things about spring is maxi dresses. These dresses are so stylish and comfortable. I love the way they flow and how they cover your whole body but is still sexy.  Maxi dresses are always my go to in the crunch. They are very easy to style. It is all depended upon what the occasion is. You can dress them up with heels and accessories or dress them down with flats.My favorite thing to pair a maxi dress with is a denim jacket. on a nice crisp spring day throwing on a denim jacket not only helps with style but with comfort ( from a possible chill). If the day starts out hot, I will throw a jacket in my bag just incase. This denim jacket was purchased here. I like the distressed look. I also love that its cropped. It fits perfect with this dress.

There are a few things about THIS dress I love. This Maxi dress from Shein  Has POCKETS, and that is what sold me. I love a dress with pockets . I also love the stripe on this dress. They are very eye catching. The material of this dress is light weight and it is great quality.

There is one con about me wearing Maxi dresses. I am 5’3 and a quarter ( that quarter counts), Sometimes it is hard for me to find cute maxi’s to wear with flats that are not dragging on the floor. I have ruined many long Maxi’s because they are too long.

What are your thoughts on Maxi dresses? Do you love them or hate them?

Outerwear

I don’t know about you guys but i love outerwear. Thats the ONLY reason i enjoy cooler weather. coats, jackets, shawls, ponchos, you name it, I love it. When it is cold out what you have underneath is barley going to be seen. So why not dress up your outerwear.

This black and white jacket is not only warm but also pretty stylish. Romwe.com has this and other coats and jackets to wear during this crazy weather. I mean lets face it, the weather currently sucks, just when we thought it was getting better BAM cold weather and snow in some places started up all over again.

Leather and/or fur

Hey everyone, so i am back with another collaboration. I love collaborations because they are fun and they allow you to see other peoples interpretations of the theme. For this collaboration we decided on leather and/ or fur. it s the perfect collaboration for winter. Winter can be so devastating on fashion. Sometimes people are un inspired because the weather can be stifling and draining. Dressing up can change your feelings even if the weather still sucks!

You could choose to style leather, fur or both. I am extra ( lol) so i decided to stye both. Here are the looks that we came up with.

Sara (Her IG) did her thing with this beautiful fur vest and leather pants. I love the red it makes everything POP.

Robin (Her IG)looks cute as usual with her fur jacket!

Carryn (Her IG) looks adorable with her leather skirt and fur vest.

Steph ( Her IG is killing it with this look. I am loving her fur jack and leather pants.

Monica is ROCKING those leather pants. I love this look.

And then there is me. I actually threw this look together at the last minute when i was shooting a few look. My son took this oic and I love it!

Animal print

Ok. I must admit, I consider leopard a color, and one of my favorite colors. Lol the amount of leopard I have should be illegal. I absolutely love it.

I have shoes, shirts, pants (yes pants), scarfs, you name it. I’ve heard that it was tacky (think of Peggy Bundy), but it’s my kind of tacky, Lol . If I am to be completely honest I love all types of animal print but leopard is on the top of my list.

So what better than to get together with other women to show our love for animal print. Now I know you’re asking… why animal print if you’re all wearing the same print… Well Great minds think alike… That’s all I can say.

Check out the ladies and their handles.

The Struggles Of Blogging

This post may have some sponsored links, but all opinions are that of my own.If you’re like me and you have a demanding job ( preschool Teacher), blogging often takes a back seat. With the ever so demanding world of blogging/vlogging it can get discouraging. It has taken me quite a while to take my blogging seriously. A part of me is happy for slowly dipping my toes in one by one before jumping in.

I have been going through a lot in life and blogging/vlogging had been my outfit. It has been therapeutic. My love for fashion and education has been revived and having an outlet to share it has been great. I have finally figured out some sort of schedule ( i think, lol) and finally found a consistent photographer ( i hope, lol), which means i don’t have to take my own pics anymore.

I absolutely give it to those people who blog/vlog daily or on a very consistent basis. One day i have hopes one getting there. For those who think blogging/vlogging is easy… you’re absolutely WRONG! I have taken series of photos and when it was all said and done, after all the hard work none were suitable, either my face was off, my body was off, the light was off, something was off. Ive taken a but of pics and a shot videos to fine my SD won’t read… It has been frustrating but that’s a part of life.I still have more work to to and more material to get to continue to improve, but slow and steady progress.

Take a chance

My love for fashion is deeper than the simple items put together. As I’ve mentioned before in previous post, fashion is an art from. It’s a way to express yourself without saying a word.

Generally speaking I’m very shy. People tend to mix that up for me being mean, standoff is or stuck up. I am none of the above. It’s rare that I will start a conversation (although in my older years I have done so more and more).

My awkward shyness has often been a down fall. Even when my business was up and running and I would get complimented on things that could be found in my boutique I wouldn’t self promote. While my business was doing well it could have been doing much better (I closed due to my move and will be reopening very soon).

My bold statements usually comes in the form of fashion. Fashion speaks for me. It gives me a voice. I take time to carefully think about what I want to put together. No thought goes into what others will think as I am picking it out, but after I wonder how ppl will take it in. Most times it’s hit but I have had my misses.

This is one of my favorite looks, it’s bold, it’s daring, it’s me. When I put this look on I laughed think. People are going to think I’m crazy. Black girl, white thigh highs??? I didn’t care because as I slowly put it together I loved it. I mean fashion is all about taking chances. So put on the outfit you love but your not sure if everyone else will. You may be surprised.

I don’t really have many outfit deets.

I purchased these thigh high stockings from walmart.com

My shoes are from shoedazzle.com

Skirt was from Target.com years ago when Peter Pilotto had a line there.

Olive Fashion

I have come to the conclusion that I am OBSESSED with Olive for the fall. One day I was looking in my closet and I came upon a bunch of olive items. It was not only my clothing but shoes as well. After seeing this i decided to do a series on my love for olive. I picked FIVE yes five looks that I loved and will be blogging about them. All these looks are super inexpensive and easy to put together (even with other colors). I start this series off  With this sweater dress.

This item can be worn as a dress or a sweater. I paired it with some pattern stocking and black sorts ( underneath). I added some lace up boots to bring this look together. This look can be easily done with an over sized sweater, some leggings and tall boots.

To add some of my on personal style i threw on this leopard belt and an off color ( off being that it doesn’t “match”) purse.This is one of my favorite comfortable fall looks.
