Personal Style Doesn’t Have To Be Hard

When we were little, we played “dress-up.” We ran around in clothes that made us feel amazing. We could care less about what other people thought of us. We were young, free-spirited, and had an imagination that ran wild. As we got older things changed. We are now self-conscious, confined by society’s views of what is considered beautiful, and we realize we are not the little kids we once were. The minute we became adults our personal style instantly became questionable and judging eyes were upon us. Read more

Love is in the Air

A few months ago, when I attended the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Super Saturday event, I was really happy to see that Rachel Pally was there supporting the cause. I was even more excited when I saw that she was selling pieces from her White Label Collection—Rachel Pally plus size line. I was immediately drawn to this dress. I thought, “this would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.” And I was right, this dress was perfect for my sister-in-laws beach-themed wedding.  Read more

Sunday’s Best (OOTD)

Ever since I was a little girl, choosing a dress to wear on Easter Sunday was kind of a big deal. Whether it was frilly and floral or simply chic, my mom always set aside some money for a my dress. Now, that I’m all grown up, I still make sure I have something special to wear on this day. This year, I set aside a dress that Lane Bryant sent me from their Lane Collection. Read more

Island Style in City Chic Resort (OOTD)

Can I just live on an island forever? Please? OK maybe just on the beach? Before I get too deep into dreams of taking naps on hammocks and enjoying slushy drinks, I’ll take the time to gush about City Chic sending me a few pieces from their Resort Collection. I mentioned I was headed to the Dominican Republic and they wanted me to live in that true island style. Read more

Floral Dress Flashback (OOTD)

Guess who cleaned out and rearranged her closet? Me! And while I was in there, I ran across this floral number from 2011! Now, let me be clear. I don’t normally wear short dresses. It’s just a personal preference. I will rarely wear anything above the knee. But, hey…why not change things up with a flirty floral dress? Read more

A Night with L’Oreal Paris (OOTD)

Let’s be honest, awards season has been pretty good so far. But, we still have the SAG Awards and the Academy Awards to look forward to. Don’t you just love the anticipation of the red carpet? Who is wearing what designer? And what will their hair and makeup look like. This past week, I actually got the inside scoop to a few Golden Globes celebrity looks thanks to L’Oreal Paris. Read more

Basically Comfortable (OOTD)

When it comes to my personal style, I never put comfort on the back burner. I just can’t. No matter where I’m going, my outfit has to be comfortable. That’s just how it has to be. It’s something that took me a long time to learn, unfortunately. It comes with age I guess. And that’s perfectly fine with me. Being comfortable equals happiness. And I love being happy with my fashion choices.  Read more

Date Night (OOTD)

Seven years seems like a long time, but is it really? That’s how long I’ve been married. Yup, the hubby and I celebrated our seven year wedding anniversary on November 25th. First of all, I can believe he’s lasted with me that long! Ha! Actually, we’ve been together for 12 years, that must be a record? No? Anyways…I wanted to quickly share my date night look with you.

Day at the Ranch (OOTD)

I love days that are all about comfort. Yesterday was one of those days. I had a last minute change of plans and headed out of the city for a day with my hubby and our family. We were headed to “the ranch” for the day and I just wanted to relax with my loved ones. You know I had to make sure my outfit was comfortable.  Read more

Striped Just Right (OOTD)

Always remember that stripes are our friends. Wearing them (proudly) can be fun and not scary! These are the words I tell myself when I reach for something with stripes. And yes, I said it when I found this striped sheer top at JC Penney. I immediately fell in love and made it my own. Can you imagine the number of ways I can wear this? Read more

In a Black and White Kind of Mood (OOTD)

I will be the first to admit that I’ve been wearing a lot of black and white lately. I don’t know what it is. Sometimes, I just get in a fashion phase, where I want to wear the same color or styles. Eh…it happens. I was looking for a chic, but comfy look and this is what I came up with. Read more
