Affordable Summer Fashion Finds

Happy Tuesday Beauties!

Let’s talk about this maxi skirt! It’s definitely dress season and the maxis are in full effect! I can remember when I was younger how much I hated wearing dresses now I can’t get away from dresses and skirts, especially maxi styles.

This skirt from Burlington was purchased in the store for $14.99! Normally, in maxi style skirts I can wear an XL or 1x but this skirt has plenty of stretch in the waist. I purchased a large and it’s a very comfortable fit.

To complete this look, I paired this skirt with a crop off the shoulder top from Charlotte Russe for $11.99. Of course, I also paired this full-length skirt with a pair of heels(although you can’t see them). I’m a shorty so most of the time I have to pair full-length clothing with a pair of heels or get alterations done. This entire look is under $30! Another plus, this basic crop shirt can be paired with many other looks!

Whenever I’m shopping, I like to shop for basic pieces, so that I can maximize my wardrobe. Basic pieces are essential to building a trendy wardrobe!

On Trend: Florals and Maxis

Summer has quickly approached and once again florals are on trend for summer 18, along with many other fab fashions. Click here to see the summer trend report from Marie Claire. I couldn’t imagine a summer without wearing maxis. You can dress them up or dress them down for any occasion.

This dress is everything! It’s super comfortable, off the shoulder(which I love so much), super affordable, and of course, floral print! The pockets on this dress are an added bonus as well. If you’ve followed my blog posts and Instagram for awhile, then you know I’m not one to shy away from the florals. This dress is a size XL and will definitely be in the rotation to wear again. Floral prints look great on any body type, from small print florals to big print florals. The key to wearing prints is to try on different types of the print you love and then determine which print you love the most before saying it won’t look great on your body type.

Stripes on Stripes

Happy Monday Beauties!

Today is all about the stripes! I must admit I am overly obsessed with stripes, especially black and white. It’s just something about those classic black and white stripes, with a bold, red lip that makes my heart melt.

Normally, I’m not the one to mix and match prints or wear a bold print on the top and bottom, unless it’s a one piece. For this look, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and go for it! And I’ll let you in on a little secret. This entire look was under $15! Yes, you read right under $15.

This entire look was thrifted! It’s been awhile since I’ve done some thrifting and even longer since I’ve done a thrift post. I’m not an expert or frequent thrifter but when I do thrift I always find some great pieces!

Horizontal and vertical stripes will definitely be on trend for spring/summer 2018. Both stripes have been seen in many fashion weeks, so expect to see more in store. Don’t be afraid to mix and match stripes, or pair stripes with solid, bold colors for spring/summer. To make your look pop, even more, go for a bolder lipstick with a neutral tone eyeshadow.

Styling Like A Boss, Girl Boss That Is…

Every girl boss has their own signature work style. Some tend to think of a CEO, manager or any high power position when the words are said. However, you can be a girl boss in many ways, regardless of your work title.

My work style is fun but yet, business casual. While the majority of my time is spent at work during the week; I still like to have those transitional pieces that can go from the office to the weekend. This fun, flirty skirt gives me the business casual look I desire along with the fun.

There are two items every working woman should have in their closet and that’s a white button-down shirt and a great pair of heels. Now, let me be honest with you. I love my heels but by 1:30 pm, you’ll probably find me in a pair of cute flats. Unless it’s a chunky heel, now I can strut all day in a chunky heel.

A classic white button-down is a must-have wardrobe item. I would even go as far as to say, buy multiple! This staple piece is so easy to become a routine, so finding creative ways to reinvent the look is best to keep the look fresh. Pair the shirt with trousers, layer the look with a duster or vest, just to name a few.

I snagged this white button down shirt during an online bogo Forever21 sale. I purchased the shirt and a floral skirt, which I showed in my YouTube haul here, for $22.00. Not bad at all, right? You may also remember the skirt and shoes from my haul as well. All the items were on sale! The skirt is from Ashley Stewart and the shoes are from Charlotte Russe.

So, how do you conquer the day in your girl boss work style? I would love to hear how you slay your work attire. Clothing can easily affect the confidence level. Let your fashions communicate confidence in every way!
