How To Style a Sexy Polka Dot Dress

I love where my body is currently and I am fitting into things that I hadn't be able to or fit super snug before but I still have some midsection and a bit of my arm area that I would love to tone a bit more.  So spending a lot on dresses from Nordstroms or items that I may not fit in a couple of months isn't really ideal for me, Boohoo has pretty affordable items that I can style a couple of different ways and still keep it classic and chic.

Weekly Wardrobe

Hey babes!

Today I am going to document my weekly wardrobe this week, I pretty much keep it simple during the week because I have to mostly chase J around. I love clothing like way too much and sometimes a lot of the outfits I wear during the week donโ€™t actually make it over to the blog.

So I wanted to put up a post that would give you guys some insight on what I wear weekly. =] if this is something you guys like, please let me know.

Soft Nude Summer Midi Dress

I recently picked up a couple of items from Forever 21 because I needed a couple of things for our cruise later this year.  I feel like I am constantly talking about this cruise here on the blog but I really feel like this will be the beginning of a lot of traveling for us.

I have been proactively planning for the trip so last minute I am not running around frantically like a crazy person, I am sure that I will still be going a bit crazy since this is our first trip as a family of 3 and the longest trip E and I have also taken together as well. 

I am just so ready to go.  I will be highlighting a couple of the things I picked out from a few "hauls" I have done soon.  I have been strategically planning new outfits as I need to.  

I also love this dress because while it will be absolutely great for the cruise, it is also the perfect thing to throw on for an easy sunday funday with the family or to brunch with your girls. 

Apparently, Football is starting back up and my husband is going to have to deal with J while he watches it and I can get things I need to do done, by myself.  A girl can dream right, lol.

Ruffled Waist Belted Shorts

If you follow me on my insta-stories you know that behind the scenes I have been trying my best to get a little space in my house to photograph outfits.  I don't really have a ton of time away from the house or someone to take all of my photos either.

I don't currently make any money off of my blog so I am trying my best to build up my content in hopes to one day make some sort of living off of it but until then I can't really afford to hire a photographer so I do the job myself.

My set up is pretty basic, I have a few studio lights, a tripod and my sony A6000.  I have a remote timer and I use my phone to see if I am in focus it takes a few tries before I get it in focus and I don't look like a complete weirdo. 

I have been looking for some shorts with this ruffle waist because I feel like they are really in style this summer and look perfect for a vacation or a weekend out with the boys.  

I picked up this olive green color because it is one of my favorite colors and it also goes great with my skin tone. 

I paired it with this white Guess body suit because it makes tucking is look more seamless and is also comfortable and chic.  I will do a post on how and why to wear body suits.

Showing Off-The-Shoulder for Summer

Whew! This week is flying my loves and I can't believe the weekend is almost here.  

I wanted to share with you guys this new top I picked up from Old Navy.  It is absolutely perfect for the summer.  With the weather being so up and down here in all of the states {northern friends I feel for you} wearing clothing out of the house can be unpredictable to say the least. 

But we are in Houston and Texas heat can be no joke.  I love this top because it is perfect for taking J to the park and then transforming into the perfect evening outfit with just a change of shoes, or pants.  

I haven't showed shoulder in quite a while and with all of the off-the-shoulders cute tops I have seen all over instagram, I couldn't wait to get my hands on one.

I wasn't sure this color was going to suit me, but I really love it.  I have absolutely no green in my wardrobe besides camo and with the bright colors arriving for summer, I felt like this one was perfect. 

It is bright and colorful enough to wear all summer long, I am also super excited to pack it for our cruise later this year.  

I paired my off-the-shoulder with a pair of distressed denim and some sandals but I can see this with shorts and some vans or even some jeggings with pointy toed flat.  I can totally do some more insta-stories with how to pair outfits with shoes if that is what you guys are looking for. 

Details:
Top: Old Navy
Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes: Target

The Perfect Traveling Flats

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with a couple of girl boss friends, we went to Galveston and ate dinner and walked around a bit afterward.

When we walked around my friend Stacy helped me out with some photos, and I desperately need to find a good photographer because y'all I have been trying to get some photos done at the house and it is not happening.

I found these cute flats at Target when I was doing some shoe shopping and I just had to have them because they would go perfectly with a simple dress, jeans or even shorts. I don't have a ton of black shoes because I got rid of a bunch of things recently and I was in need of something to use on the days that tan/brown wasn't going to work. 

Shoes: Target
Shirt: Target
Distressed Jeans: American Eagle
Lipstick: Milani Matte Naked

You guys I am so excited to share this post with y'all today!
  
I finally got myself a remote trigger and have been able to take my own photos.  E is always so busy and I would get so mad that I don't have one of those IG husbands that every one talks about. 

I knew I had to do something because I was ready to take my blog photography to the next level and I kept promising my loyal readers that I would.  So it was definitely time to actually work on it. 

J and I had so much fun - OKAY, I am lying here.

He had fun picking up rocks and running from mom while I tried desperately to get good photos of him.  I just had fun editing these.  

I lucked out by having a big girl camera because of wedding and portrait photography so I have to use it to my advantage.

This is a really old dress that has been hanging in my closet for years, my weight was the worst before J and I wasn't ever able to drop the weight Ill chalk it up to happiness. But this beauty was just hanging in my closet and I am so glad to finally wear it.  

I love to pair things with a simple pump, these are Steve Madden Daisie Classic Pumps and they are one of my favorite pairs of shoes. 

I didn't add any accessories because if you know anything about having a little one less is more.  Your earrings will have to come out, and your necklace will have to come off.

If you do want to pair this with a cute earring I suggest these from Shop Morning Lavender 
If you want a simple make up look like mine, then check out my 7 Product Make Up Look.  It is my normal every day make up with a red lip.

What is that, Velvet?

If you have ever watched "Coming to America" you can appreciate the title of this post, and my humor for that matter ๐Ÿ˜‚. I was raised with boys forgive me.  

I recently saw a blogger post wearing a velvet jumpsuit and I absolutely loved it. I know it isn't really mommy like to wear velvet but we all still get to do date night once in a while right?  And if not you can always spruce up your mommy wardrobe while accessorizing or accentuating with velvet.  

I found a couple of items that I fell in love with to add a little velvet to your life this fall. 

Please for the sake of all things mommy, don't go out wearing all things velvet and then say I told you it would look amazing, that's not what I am saying.

So let me break it down, if you wear velvet pants DO NOT, I repeat do not wear a velvet top.  A basic tee will work, wear leather loafers or pumps and put your hair up in a bun.  Piece velvet items together with none velvet items, the days are over where you should be wearing all velvet. 

A little sometimes can go a long way especially with the velvet trend, that is why I added in the shirt with a velvet pocket and a clutch these are items that will accent your outfit, and keep you on trend while potentially be your statement piece.  

Oh and don't forget you can totally detail your house with velvet items like dining room chairs. My tip would be to only use them at the head and end of the table, all velvet may be a bit much unless you are going for the 70's vibe then it would totally work in your favor.
