Flattering Forever (21)

forever 21 dress

Although it’s August and fall is quickly approaching, this month never fails to bring on the highest temperatures that make summer seem like it will last forever. Unfortunately since that’s not the case in Michigan, we make do of what we can before the days of frigid cold, icy roads, and entrapped in snow come to be. That means taking the boat out a few more times, throwing one more family barbecue, or simply wearing your favorite summer dress. Continue reading “Flattering Forever (21)”

On the Go, Go, Go

Ladies, you know those days where you have a million plus one errands to do and all you want to do is be comfortable yet not resort to sweats and sneakers? Yeah, we all have those days- myself included!

I’ll tell ya, an easy and comfy shift dress is one of the easiest pieces to work with. For example, I wore some Adidas shell tops with some silver hoops and a messy bun for a more sporty and casual look. Or, opt for the more chic-er version with flats and an on-the-go cross body!

But there’s something different about them; maybe it’s the cross between grandma flats and my old black patent tap shoes that also had a buckle go across- I don’t know! But I figured these would be perfect for a day I don’t feel like wearing heels to the office 🙂

Not a major fan of designer purses, tbh. My aunt actually gifted this to me a few years ago and this is the first time I’m wearing it out. But you can’t go wrong with a cross body purse when you’re running around! Who’s with me??

I hope you’re all having an amazing day so far! Can you do me a favor? Place your hand over your heart, breathe in and out, and verbally say, “I’m alive, I’m breathing, and living. I’m grateful.” This world’s not perfect, but we can always make the best of it. Live on!

A ’90s Dress in the 90’s

At last, we are finally seeing full weeks of beautiful sunshine without the surprise of snow in the forecast (knock on wood). Bikers accessorized with leather, convertibles with their tops down, grills are dusted off, and a slew of grad parties, picnics, outdoor concerts, and road trips are already scheduled in for the coming months. Yep, summer is a’comin’! And ladies, what’s a summer without a good ol’ summer dress?

I love, love, love dresses with a basic silhouette like this because it’s so easy to get up and go with especially when its fabric is convenient and you don’t have to iron it. And while this dress clearly looks like it’s from the ’90s, bright colors with floral NEVER ceases to get me all giddy inside. Whether you’re a heels or sandals kinda girl or hair down or twisted in a quick bun, it’s so simple to look like you actually put in the effort, and let’s be honest, with this kind of weather, all we want is to be outside, right?!

Remember, summer does not have to equal immodesty! It’s humid and we get sweaty. I get it. But it is possible to still look hot when it’s HOT (hah). Take a look at Liz’s post from her blog Downtown Demure. She and 12 other modest fashion bloggers give their tips on how to look cool while staying cool when it’s the temperatures are anything but.

Reasons why I love these pants: 1) they basically have every color of the rainbow so it’s easy to pair with just about any solid-colored top, 2). they are incredibly comfy and light, perfect for the spring and summer, 3) they’re a great alternative to leggings and yoga pants that we’ve been hoarding all fall and winter long, and 4) they are from the Philippines from my beloved Lola for only PHP 50 or $1!

It honestly doesn’t get any better when your entire look is less than $30, am I right girlfriends? Which in this case this outfit was a whole whopping $26! You don’t have to break the bank to achieve a fashionable wardrobe. Just a little patience at the thrift stores and sifting through sale racks can go a long way.
