My Fashion Favorites {April 2014}♥

Hello my little mushrooms! ^_- As I was looking back on my older posts, I realized that I forgot to show you my may favorites last month! What is my problem? Anyways I hope you guys enjoy this months favorites, and as always make sure and let me know in the comment section what YOU think. Enjoy!


Mr. Chester wanted to be in sissy's posts so as I always say, the little diva got what he wanted. Anyways I've really loved this lacy tank top because it makes any outfit appear more feminine and girly, with a touch of vintage.


Judge me if you will, but when a home girl has a bad hair day she will always run back to her favorite hat.


This is a lovely bracelet I got from my sister a couple years ago. I love how unique it is, with different little charms. It makes me smile every time I wear it because I think of her and what a caring heart she has.


For those who are old subscribers, you know by now my love for pandas. When I saw these pants I didn't think twice about purchasing, or try them on for that matter!


If you remember my shoe collection I posted a while back (Part 1 & 2 will be linked at the bottom), you know that these bad boys are one of my favorites. They are from Buckle and are definitely the most comfortable pair of heals in my closet.


Although the lighting may portray something different, this is a rose gold bracelet. I wish I could tell you all where I bought it, but I can't because it is a little boutique around where I live. (My stalkers have gotten out of control, I hope you understand!) Anyways I love this because it adds a touch of sparkle to any outfit, as well as goes with just about everything.


This last piece I am showing you guys today is a long over sized cardigan by Billabong. I love the print and different colors, very bohemian hippie looking.

Stay Beautiful

What To Wear: Summer 2014♥

A lot of you may think me crazy, but I am already more than excited for this summer. It's already heating up where I live so I've recently been thinking about getting some new summer clothes and thought hey, maybe me making a post about this will help some of you guys out as well. 

Today I will be sharing with you some outfits as well as ideas I think are great for the warmer weather - Both casual and dressy. As always make sure and let me know you're thoughts in the comment section below! ^_-


One of my favorite ways to make any outfit pop during the summer is to try rocking printed jeans. Their fun and put a unique twist on the average pant. (Just don't too crazy friends...I know they are great but you must restraining from buying twenty. Not that I've done that or anything.) 


For a casual day out, try rocking a comfortable and maybe baggy top, a pair of cute shorts, and any shoe of your choice. (Tip: If you're wanting to dress this look up a bit, try rocking a funky wedge!) 


If you're wanting to try something a little more spontaneous, I think this is an adorable idea. Any casual tank, printed ballooned pants, and some sort of heal. Beautiful, no?


Ladies, I think we all know how amazing maxi skirts and dresses are by now. They look more dressy and yet are one of the most comfortable things in the world. I think that they are fabulous for many events such as hanging out with friends, a semi-formal event, or a date. Another nice thing about them is the fact that accessorizing can change the look of them - Meaning depending on what you wear and add to a maxi dress will change how formal it will be. A very nice bonus if I do say so myself! 


This last look is the most formal I've chosen to write about today. The little black dress is in fact something that every women should have in her closet for that special night or event. I remember reading a Tim Gunn book long ago that talked about this and I never realized how truly right he was. This is a classic dress that if chosen correctly, will change your life. Or your style life, at least.

CRY ME A RIVER.



Hello my little mushrooms! ^_- This is an outfit I wore to a funeral I attended over the weekend. I still don't understand why the lighting made my face look 10 times darker than the rest of me...haha oh well! Here I went with an edgier look, wearing a chunky grey necklace, black dress, black tights, and grey booties. As always make sure and let me know what you think of my outfit in the comment section below!

March Rock-It Edit {Featuring Abbi Jordan}

A: Okay editors, you'll have to bare with me because I'm in the middle of wedding planning and it's taken over my life worse than when me and the sweetheart got hooked on Prison Break on Netflix. (Great show, you must watch it!) 

Moving on, since life for me is a whirlwind of white and all things bridal, I thought I'd just go with it and take this time to talk about the perfect LWD {The Little White Dress}

Nothing says rock my world like a girl that's not afraid to rock stark white - especially with a tan.


My friend Natalie wore one last summer for for a gig and it was one of my favorite looks ever. (Sorry couldn't find a picture of it!) 

You may think I'm nuts. I mean black is basically the bible when it comes to rock n' roll but done right it can not only work, but sizzle.

The most important thing with white (anything) is weight of fabric and fit. It must fit your body type (anything there is a fit for everyone if you look hard enough) because anything amiss is going to stand out. 


I say weight of fabric too because there isn't anything worse than a beautiful white shirt or dress that as soon as you step into the right light - shows the entire world everything you've got. Major buzz kill. Unless your Miley Cyrus,  in which case...nope not even going there.

Pair your white hot number with killer shoes and a few simple (but edgy) accessories and you've got the cool girl look on lock. 


Hope your life isn't has hectic as it is on my end, have have a lovely weekend!

M: Hey guys! I'm totally with Abbi this week - Working lots of overtime and have barely been home so this edit is going to be short, sweet, and to the point! Please forgive us and make sure to expect an awesome edit over on her blog next month! I've decided to go along with Abbi's idea that white truly can be quite edgy contrary to popular belief. 


Like black, using as your base color is you're best bet when trying to make it more edgy and rocker. This example above is perfect - You have your white v neck tee, white blazer with gold accents, and white jeans. 


This is another great example. This dress is edgy with just a touch of feminine and looks lovely against her olive skin tone.


One of my favorite ways to wear white is to add accents of black and gold. I feel like this makes any outfit look more statement as well as more put together.

THE KIDS ARE BACK.



Hey guys! It has officially been far too long since I've done one of these. Hoping to keep up with them from now on. Anyways today I thought I'd show you a casual outfit I wore, with a simple blue sweater, ripped jeans, and Steve Madden heals. Also I recently dyed my hair, definitely a change no? As always make sure and let me know what YOU think of my outfit.

Stay Beautiful,
