Fall Collaboration

Fall is here , What better way to celebrate my favorite season than to do it with fashion. I’ve teamed up with a few ladies to showcase our similar and different ways of being fashionable for the fall. Fall for me is all about layers, I love layers, you can build up and break it down as  the day goes on.

The thing I love about fashion is that we can interpret it in the way we think, feel and enjoy. I am far from an artist, but  fashion is my way of showing my artistic eye.Sometimes I enjoy the basics and sometimes I can be a bit over the top. I also love that people are at time brought together by the things they they love and enjoy.  

 

Here are the ladies, their handles and their blogs.

First we have the lovely @thedazzlebomb (on IG),I love this sexy fall inspired look. Those Fabulous booties are from goody2shoes.com, blazer from justfab.com and her shorts are thrifted. Follow her blog at Thedazzlebomb.com

My latest appreciation for flats.

Many that know me know how much I live in heels. For a while one could not find me outside of the house in flats. As I’ve gotten older and more practical (lol) I realize that flats are a must in some instances.  

I often though flats were ugly and did nothing for an outfit, but as I’ve begun my search of finding flats that suit me, I realized that my thinking was flawed. I began to find some flats that were not only cute but that fit my personal style.

Don’t get me wrong I am still a heels type of girl but instead of wearing heels 99% of the time, I wear them more like 89% of the time. Lol

Here’s a look I wore styles with flat sandals.

I paired my sandals with one of my $5 finds from none only than dollar general.

I purchased these cute blue flats from Here. Justfab and Shoedazzle are my go to places for most of my shoes.

Palmers Coconut Oil formula Review.

This review is an unsolicited review. Now that that’s out of the way… here’s my review.

Ok, let me start by saying I am an ex product junkie. I had almost every product on the counters when I first went natural. Now I’m a minimalist when it comes to products. They are not only expensive at times (it adds up) but often a waste of money for me and my hair type. These days it’s hard for me to commit to buying a product. I decided to give this particular product a try. With my kinky hair it’s usually hit or miss so I wasn’t expecting too much.

I used these products on my wash day along with my usual wash day items. I did not use all the products pictured.

I tried the  conditioning shampoo which did not dry out my hair like usual shampoos do. I will add this to my list of shampoos. It lathered pretty well and as I stated my hair was not hard or dry. The smell was good which was a plus.

I added the repairing conditioner to my deep conditioner and it was a good add but not a necessity for me. I will try this product again alone when I wash my hair again.

I also used The curling styler on both my hair and my sons hair and it left my hair so soft. I absolutely love it and will definitely continue to use it and restock when I run out. It helps that it smells pretty good. 

I also used the edge control which did not justice to my kinky hair. I won’t be adding this to my rebuy list. I didn’t have high expectations of this since most edge control products don’t work for me, but it was worth a try.

All and all, I think the product is pretty good and would suggest it as a purchase.

Thanks for reading!

High Waisted!

I have a love hate relationship with high waist jeans. It’s hit or miss sometimes.  These jeans right here from Shoedazzle are amazing! Unfortunately they no longer have them but they do have ones similar. I paired them with These yellow heels from @justfab.com and they paired perfect.

I purchased this grey onsie while I was in Cali last year, I wore it for the first time… Here is a similar one. As for my jacket it is one of my favorite and was apart of my boutique about 2 years ago.

Some days you wake up, throw on some makeup, toss your hair, put on some clothing, look in the mirror and completely love yourself… this was one of those days for me. Everything seem to have fallen into place just how I wanted it.

Mom and Fashion

Last week my son came home to visit for spring break. His last break we did not get to spend much time together, but this time around we made sure to pick a day to hang out. Being a mom of a young man picking out what you wear can be stressful. While I enjoy fashion I didn’t want to over do it, but I also wanted to be comfortable. Of course before leaving the house I had to get his stamp of approval. He didn’t like my shirt but gave me the OK. Our day out was enjoyable. We went see the movie Race ( it was amazing I suggest everyone go see it), after the movie we went to catch a bite to each. At this moment we caught up on what was going on in both of our lives.

Here is what I wore:FullSizeRender 2
