Hi Loves! I hope 2017 has been treating you all well so far. I'm back with another style post! This is look is one of my absolute favorites that I've put together on this blog. It's affordable, stylish, and sophisticated with a hint of sexy. In other words, it's so me! I've always admired the cape look on other woman but I didn't quite know how it would look on me. I have pretty board shoulders and the cape look draws attention to your shoulders. However, I'm so glad that I decided to purchase this cape blazer on Forever21.com.
I paired this blazer with a slip dress that is also from Fovever21.com. I'm slightly obsessed with Forever21 but it is for a good reason. I also get outfits that are great quality for an affordable price. Shopping for makeup and clothes while making sure I cover all of my bills every month is tough. Not mention the fact that I'd like to save more this year. #thestruggleisreal If you look expensive, no one has to know that you mainly shop the sales. Except for you guys of course! ;)
I'm loving this slip press just as much as I love the blazer. Although the dress isn't black, it is a solid dark color so it doesn't clash with the strips. The dress hugs my curves but the length and material make the dress appropriate for business or play. My black closed toe heels are from shoedazzle.com. They are simple but really tie in the black stripes on the blazer.
I realize that many people look at my style posts and feel these styles aren't for their body types. I say find your fit and show off those curves! Though I'm working towards my fitness goals, I think it's important to be body positive at any size. I love my curves and it doesn't matter what I weigh. Health is the most important.
Much love always! <3

Hi loves! So I recently received this beautiful and stylish wooden watch from JORD. I have the Reece Series Golden Camphor & Khaki wood watch, which is pictured throughout this blog. Who knew that a wooden watch could be so modern? As someone who doesn't own many watches, I really love the style and feel of this watch. It's lightweight and goes with majority of my outfits. Furthermore, it's just such a unique watch.
Even the wooden box the watch came in is beautifully crafted. JORD really seems to take pride in their watches. It's refreshing to say the least. My Reece Series Golden Camphor & Khaki wood watch really fits my style. I prefer a square face over a circle face which is one reason I chose this particular watch. I'm also loving the dark wood band with the light wooden detail. I find neutral shades to be very modern and chic. You can find your perfect JORD women's watch here: Women's Shop.

HAPPY NEW YEAR LOVES!!! I have been M.I.A for a couple months but I can explain. I quit my job back in March of 2016 so that I can do my photography full time. I had no idea just how much time goes into being your own boss. I had a lot to work through and learn. My blog and my YouTube channel took a backseat. I know some of my followers totally gave up on me during that time and I understand. However, I'm so thankful for those who have continued to look for my posts/uploads.
The biggest thing I learned from last year was to roll with the punches. All I can do is move forward and continue to work at the things I'm passionate about. At certain times one may take me away from the other but overall I want to produce quality and meaningful content. So I'm back with my first style post of this 2017!!
This year I really want to elevate my style with different patterns, textures and styles. I've already started to add different pieces to my wardrobe. This camo bomber jacket I picked up at Forever21 really caught my eye. I really love the edge that bomber jackets add to any outfit. I really like the words "Rise Above" is displayed on the back. It's up for personal interpretation but to rise above for me means to be your best regardless of the situation.
For this post, I decided to pair this jacket with a fitted one shoulder black dress from H&M online. There's something about a curve hugging dress or jeans paired with a bomber jacket. I absolutely recommend shopping the sales on H&M.com. This black dress was an affordable and quality find. I paired this outfit with nude heels but a pair of combat boots would work if you were going for even more edge.
Leave your thoughts on this outfit below and or say hello! I love to hear from you guys!
