Statement Shoe

Top - HERE // Jeans - Levis (old) // Shoes - HERE

Nothing can take a pretty simple outfit and kick it up a notch like a statement shoe.  When I first saw these shoes on, I did not hesitate buying them on the spot.  Now, ya'll know I love me some boho chic stuff...

This night, the hubs and I were on our way to see Amel Larrieux at City Winery here in ATL.  Great show, by the way.  Anyway, I figured a shoe this "loud" would probably pair better with a fairly simple outfit, and I liked how it all came together.  Off-the-shoulder top, jeans and BAM, the shoes!  I got lots of compliments!

I suggest you go snap up these babies while you can, or any shoe Zara has out right now.  They are all so good!

Have a great Hump Day.


I posted this top picture on my Instagram yesterday, but thought that I should turn it into a blog post, just in case anyone wanted to know where to get these overalls.  They are the cutest and the fit is perfect.  I have a thing for wearing cropped flared pants with ankle booties, so when I saw these overalls on ASOS (which also happened to be on sale), I had to snap them up.  I've also cut an old pair of bootlegged jeans I've been holding onto into a pair of "cropped flares" as well.  You guys should try out the look, it's so chic!

Happy Hump Day!


I have about 6 plaid shirts in my closet, and I always look forward to wearing them in the fall/winter.  Of course, plaid can be worn all year around, but all of my plaid shirts are flannel--so that would be a no-go for the warmer seasons.  Anyway, one of my fave plaid styles is "buffalo plaid".  It's a classic with a bit of edge and makes me feel oh so hipster-ish.  Paired with skinny jeans and ankle boots, makes for a chic casual ensemble. 

By the way, I snagged my buffalo plaid shirt from Old Navy.  They are out of the red buffalo plaid, but have it in cobalt blue and it's on sale for $6.99!  Thank me later!

Oh hey!!

Hey guys!  Yea, know me, so it's been a while.  I know I've gotten so sporadic with my posting, but I'm still here!  I was on a roll for a while, but I blame the colder weather for the slow-down.  I'm less inspired to go outside (where the best lighting is) at just the right time for the best possible photos.  I don't do well with cold.  So I find myself enjoying taking casual pics (like the one above) for Instagram over this blogger grind.  So please, if you don't follow me on Instagram--please do!  I will still be posting here on occasion and sharing things I feel "blog worthy", but I'm starting to think I may be wayyy more interesting on IG. *wink*

Hope all is well!

2 PC Thigh & Leg

2 PC Set - H&M // Boots

Happy Friday, ya'll!!  I decided to throw up a quick blog post of this Aztec print 2 PC set I snagged from H&M almost a year ago.  I'm just now getting around to wearing it.  It's made of a heavy woven material, like that Mexican poncho kind of material, if you know what I mean.  If you didn't know, H&M has been offering up various 2 PC set style outfits here-and-there for a while now, and they are always on point!  I like them because they are "instant outfits", kind of like rompers but with no bathroom difficulties.  *wink*

(By the way, I this set is no longer sold, but I did find a size 8 for sale on eBay, HERE.)

Well, I'm off to prepare for this upcoming camping trip the fam and I are taking with my son's Cub Scouts.  I love being outside and I love nature--but this is my very first time camping (not including 6th grade camp)!  I'm pretty excited, and the weather here in Atlanta is perfect.  Blog post on this camping trip will be coming soon.  Have a great weekend!

Drop it Low

DRESS // SHOES (Zara, old)

...that waist, that is.  Fell in love with this leaf print when I saw it!  I love that the color scheme makes what could be a "summer print" go right along with autumn.  I also don't own any drop waist dresses.  It is surprisingly a flattering style!  Anyway, you can find it in my shop--> HERE.

Anyway, the hubs and I are heading to a Halloween party tonight.  If you've been reading my blog for a while, you should know that Halloween is one of my favorite "holidays"!  Hopefully, I'll have some pictures to share later.

Have a great weekend!



I've always associated blouses with fall/winter.  I'm not sure why, since there are summer blouses.  There's just something about a nice long-sleeved blouse in a rich color.  Oh, and if it has a bow--that's even better!

In these pics, this blouse looks a bit lighter than it actually does in person.  It's actually more of a deeper "ginger" color.  It looks great with jeans or tucked into a pencil skirt!  If interested, you can get it HERE.

Hope the rest of your week is great!

Yay, for Friday!  

The hubs and I have no big plans this weekend.  There are a few things going on here in ATL like Music Midtown.  We're not partaking tho, even though I'd really love to see the band, Twenty One Pilots.  I think we plan to hit up a monthly party that's been going strong here in Atlanta since before I moved here over 8 years ago---Old School Saturdays!  I remember going to this party with my girls back in the day, which we considered as being full of "old fogies", and us being the youngest chicks there stealing the show.  My how the tables turn!  I'm just going to be happy to be hearing some music that I actually know the words to!

Anyway, have a great weekend!

Kimono + Booties

A kimono with booties, such a cute, boho chic combination, don't ya think?

Just thought I'd put up a quick blog post for the week.  I have a busy weekend ahead.  The hubs and I will be attending the highly sought after event "Dîner en Blanc" here in Atlanta.  We are super excited.  There's also One Music Fest, among the other many events that will be going on.  But who's complaining?

Have a great weekend, guys.

Fall is in the air.  Yes, the high temps here in Atlanta are still in the 90's...BUT in the mornings, you can feel Fall trying to creep in.  There's a slight coolness there, that wasn't before.  I hate to admit it (because I'm such a summer time girl), but I welcome it.  This summer has been pretty extreme, and I have to admit that I'm starting to look forward to Fall clothing.

Black Floral 2PC Set - HERE // Booties - HERE

So, now's the time when I'm shopping, I'm looking for pieces that will easily transition into Fall.  I haven't totally ditched buying summer fashions just yet, because right now the deals are too good.  So I just keep an eye out for those summer wears that are in nice deep, rich colors that can play double-duty for both seasons.

I'm also looking forward to the "all pumpkin everything" phase to hit as well.  I see many Starbucks pumpkin lattes in my future.

Happy Hump Day!

Dusty Rose

TOP // JEANS (Zara, old), similar on sale!// SHOES (old), similar

Hey guys! Did you have a good weekend?  I did.  Saturday, I had an epic workout at the gym and then later that evening, a really nice date night with the hubster.  I wore this "dusty rose" colored embroidered peasant top on our night on the town.  It was so hot and since we were just going to tool around downtown Atlanta, which would include some walking, I knew this air-y top would be perfect.  I actually got a couple compliments from strangers on it.  Make sure to snap one up HERE.

Anyway, the fam and I will be heading to the Bahamas this week.  My husband's maternal grandmother passed away after being sick for quite some time.  We are all sad to see her go, but know that she is no longer suffering. Aside from dealing with that, I will try to get some pictures in of that beautiful place we consider a second home.

Happy Monday!

99 Problems, but...

Shirt: HERE // Hat: HERE

Sometimes we, as people, get overly caught up in stuff that doesn't concern us.  At times it's hard minding your own business especially when others put so much out there in these social media streets... 

When I find myself over analyzing why some people do the idiotic things that they do, I try to remind myself that it's "Nacho Problem", just enjoy the show.

Stay focused, guys!

One Shoulder

She said "Hola, como estas? She said "Konichiwa!"...  Good morning, readers.  That darn song was playing after I'd dropped my kids off at school, and of course it will now stay stuck in my head for the next 4 hours.  Speaking of school, I just have to say....YAY FOR BACK TO SCHOOL!  Here in Atlanta, some of the school districts start school quite a bit earlier, but my kids also get a lot of days off during the year as well.  Makes it great for squeezing in family vacays all throughout the year, instead of having to wait for summer.

So, I'm wearing this "boho chic" one shoulder top that I currently have stocked in my store.  I love the print and how air-y and free it feels.  To snap one up, get it HERE!

Happy Hump Day!


White Tribal Dress


"Rasta Barbie", "Mocha-hontas"--all of the cliché names, I've been referring to myself as since I've put these Marley twists in my hair.  I love them!!  And it only took me 2-3 hours to put them in.  Yea, they are a bit sloppy, in my opinion, but this was my first time, so I'm not to concerned.  I'm just happy to be taking a breather from doing my hair. 

In this post, I'm wearing this white tribal print dress, I currently have stocked in my store.  I wore it on Saturday for a "date day" with the hubs.  We went to one of Atlanta's local breweries, Orpheus Brewing--went on the brewery tour and sampled some beer.  It's also Atlanta Downtown Restaurant Week, so we tried out a new downtown area restaurant, as well.  I will be doing a separate post on that restaurant later in the week.

This dress is one of my favorite dresses in the store.  It's super light and air-y (which is great for this record-breaking heat), without being see-through.  Of course, the strappy back is the cherry on top.  I have limited quantities, so get it while you can!

Happy Monday!

Tie-Dye Tube

DRESS // NECKLACE (w/matching earrings) // SHOES // SUNGLASSES

Hey guys, I'm sitting here trying to find inspiration for this blog post, but I'm just not in a word-y mood.  In light of recent events (#AltonSterling and #PhilandoCastile killings, and now shootings in Dallas), I'm in a somber mood and I'm just going to allow myself to be.  But I still wanted to get these latest outfit pictures up, so...


I will say, that this is another dress that I completely adore.  It gets me feeling all MILF-y.  Also, it is lined from the top to about mid-thigh, which holds everything in quite nicely.  You can snatch this dress up at Belleza Blu!

Hope you guys spread a little love and compassion around this weekend.

Teal Wrap Dress

DRESS // SHOES, similar

I love wrap dresses.  Have I ever told you guys that?  I do...because it's one of the easiest and most flattering style of dress for ALL body types.  They also have this "classy" feel to them....even if it only cost you 20 in this case.

Of course, the fact this is a wrap dress with a "boho" style, Hindi-ish print....I had to have it, and I had to make sure you guys could have it too!!  So I have just a handful of them available at BELLEZA BLU.  Grab them fast! My last wrap dress sold out pretty quickly.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

I'm in love with anything tie-dye.  I can't remember a time when I wasn't automatically drawn to tie-dyed clothing.  I'm not really talking the retro, rainbow tie-dyed t-shirts. That's pretty typical.  I like articles of clothing that "dress up" the casual, hippy vibe of it.

Enter this dress.  I couldn't pass it up.  Not only did it dress-up the tie-dye, it sexified it up too without being too overt with the lil' bit of exposed midriff and hi-lo hem.  I'm all for a little ventilation during these summer temperatures.

This dress is made in India, and is made out of a nice air-y, cotton gauze-like material.  Looking forward to taking it out for a spin for one our date nights.

Oh, and yes, I cut my hair.  I also dyed it back black.  Hair A.D.D.--yea you know me!  I will post a separate blog post talking about the new do.

Happy Friday, guys.  Hope you have amazing weekend!
