Summer

Spring Is Here!

It’s officially spring!  I wanted to share a quick post of this fabulous dress I purchased from H&M.  It was such a great find for only $30 and the perfect look for brunch with your girlfriends.  The ruffles at the bottom added a little something special to it!

I paired the dress with a satin headband (which I love a good headband!) from H&M and white pumps from Zara.  I added a little jacket from Zara as a little touch.  It matched perfectly with my headband.  🙂

Labor Day…No More White? 🤔🙄

I’ve always asked myself, why did my mom always say as a kid…”you couldn’t wear white after Labor Day?” I’m thinking summer isn’t officially over and depending on your location…it’s very much still hot! ( like Florida). 
I’m a firm believer that fashion rules are made to broken and in my opinion this is one of them. So ladies – break out your winter white! 

After all, CoCo Chanel wore white all year around as one of her staples. 

Check out a few photos of my all white look below. 

Outfit Details: 

Bathing suite: Asos (as seen in a previous post) 

White shirt: Urban Outfitters 

Shoes: NineWest

Not only does Labor Day means no white attire but it also means…sales, sales, and more sales. I’m definitely going to take advantage of these and will post later all of my great finds. 

Take a look a below for some of my favorite stores currently having Labor Day sales: 

1. Aldo shoes – 30% discount 

2. The Limited – 60% discount on sale items

My Take: Rompers! 🤗

So there’s been this crazy trend with Rompers this season. They are definitely a casual look for the summer. Simple but yet chic!  To be honest, I only own one! Haha. I think sometimes as women we feel that certain looks won’t look great on us and that was definitely the case with Rompers with me. 

However with that said, I shared in a previous post a recent purchase of one from Asos. Check out below and a few others I discovered on the Nordstrom.com website. All under $70

If you were a flower, which one would you be? 🌹

I would be a rose – love pink roses. There’s something that’s so elegant and romantic about them. Hmmm but not so much on my clothing however the floral print trend has been booming this spring/summer. 

I wasn’t a big fan of floral prints because the clothing looks a little busy but it’s growing on me for sure.  Floral prints can look great on a dress or a top! I recently purchased a floral print dress from Asos and absolutely loved it! 😍 Check out a quick bathroom pic below. Gotta love bathroom selfies! 

This dress is currently on the website for $23, originally priced at $57! Great find. 

I added a belt just to get a little shape to it. 

Dress: Asos

Belt: Forever21

Shoes: Target 

Total outfit purchase: Approx $60

Friday’s Favorites! 👏🏽😍

It’s Friday! 🙌🏾 Almost time for the weekend ladies and I wanted to share a few of my favorites.  Check them out below! 

1. Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes 

Sooooo I have fell in love with these makeup removal wipes by clean & clear. They are absolutely amazing. I know sometimes we get home after a long day and we don’t feel like doing our “normal” facial cleanse. I use these suckers to remove the makeup right away and its oil free. Works perfect! Usually have them stashed at the office as well as home.  😊



2.  Asos Bathing Suit 

We all search for that perfect bathing suit that fits and compliments our body type. I think I’ve found it! 🙌🏾 I fell head over heels with this Asos deep plung bathing suit. It fits me perfect and I feel so confident wearing it! It comes in so many colors (which I will be ordering soon 😁) and it only retails at $33.  Asos has tons of other styles at affordable prices but this one is just for me. 👏🏽😎😍



AB, xoxo
