I need a tropical vacation ASAP, but since that is not happening I can at least pretend and dress like I am on an island, right?? How do you dress on vacay? My look is usually simple and relaxed with with pops of color and unique accessories, like I did with this outfit here. A black tank goes well with almost anything and white jeans most definitely stand out, particularly during the summer’s lush landscape. I added some color with these coral tassel earrings which I am in love with and will be wearing all summer. Then can we talk about these shoes? They are perfect since I am pretty much the Plant Lady of Louisville! Lol! Did you know the floral meaning of Cactus is longevity and endurance. Something we all need right?!?
It’s officially 2018, which potentially could be the best year yet. Who has their goals set and their whole year worked out? Me, I have a lot of planning to do this year. This includes a wedding, building my many businesses, and planning the future with Mr. Yates 🙂
A lover of lace and bold colors, this outfit is perfect to start the new year. If you are dressed well and feel good from the start, I feel that it sends good vibes that will carry on throughout the new year! What will your signature style this year? Shop one of my signature pieces, lace, below.
It has been awhile since I have done an Insta Roundup, so I thought it was time. Today on the blog I am sharing some of my favorite fall outfits from the blog and Instagram. Many of them easy to recreate with items in your closet. What has been your favorite fall trends? Mine are peep toe booties and I am always a fan of leopard. Fringe is the trend on my list next to style. Shop my recent outfits and accessories below.
It’s holiday time! So what are you going to wear? Let me help. From now until the holidays I will be doing holiday looks on the blog that are easy to recreate. Some casual, some dressy and some in-between.
My first holiday look starts with a simple black skinny jean or a skinny pant, something that we all have in our closet. I paired it with a cranberry or merlot colored silk blouse that has sheer cape sleeves. This statement piece is too die for and will be on heavy rotation this season. I’m pretty sure this color is the color of the holidays. I added leopard print heels for texture and flair. So if you are looking for a holiday outfit you can wear to work as well as attend a social function, after hitting the grind, this is my outfit of choice.

There comes a time in life when you are so busy that you have to find outfits that carry you through the day. This outfit here is one of those. I go straight from work to meetings and sometime after that to social function, so this means I have to be prepared to look the part. I do this by wearing layers. Adding a cardigan to an outfit makes it perfect for work. As the day progresses you can lose the sweater which gives your outfit a whole new look. Also wearing a shoe that is appropriate for work as well as cute enough for social outings is key. Since it is bootie season I opted for a open toe bootie, which is comfy but stylish.

Sometimes you just have to stop and take it all in. We are all too busy and never really have time to enjoy life and the people who are in it. Everyone should just take a minute, sit down and take in their surroundings. Like I am doing here, people watching and pondering the moment.
While doing this. There is no need for you not to look your best! I am loving this dress and matching jacket, which I got from the Chris Yates Shop in Mount Eliza, Victoria, Australia. If you are ever in Melbourne you should definitely head to Mt. Eliza and visit the Chris Yates Shop. I paired this outfit with bright suede booties to give it a pop of color. I accessorized it with a leopard belt, gold jewelry and my favorite tassel clutch.
This outfit is great for day and night. Wear it to work with the jacket during the day, then shed it at night to go out with the girls for a glass of wine. Whatever you have going on or if you are just pondering the moments this outfit is perfect. Shop it below.
Happy Friday! What’s on your weekend agenda? I hope something fun. Mine? Playing catch up as usual. But I won’t let a busy weekend cause me not to be stylish. And you shouldn’t either! It is easy to plan out an outfit that can carry you though the weekend. Like this one I styled below.
Take a simple pair of skinny jeans that almost everyone has in their wardrobe, pair it with a shirt that has a patterned or flattering design to give it some flair. I love this leopard print button down from the IHXDay curated collection (found here). It is a staple in my closet, because like I always say leopard is a neutral and can go with almost any solid color.
I accessorized with a black cross body that had gold accents, a pair of hoop earrings and basic black heels. This outfit is simple and easy to create. It can take you from day to night throughout the weekend. During the day throw on some flats to run errands or go to a game. At night rock the heels for date night or girls night out.
What is your favorite pattern? Obviously mine is leopard! Shop this outfit below.
What is your favorite fall color? Mine is this mustard yellow color. It reminds me of the changing of the leaves. So when I saw this cape inspired dress from Shop Nic and Kat I knew I had to have it. How amazing is it? I love the fact that it has a cape and that you can put your arms through it for a whole new look, so it is almost like getting two looks with one outfit. This dress is great for a fall wedding. You will definitely make a statement with it. I paired it with gold jewelry, a snake skin cross body to give it some texture and a pair of dark teal heels. As the temperatures get cooler you can wear it with a pair of booties and even a knee boot,

Street style is the best style, whether it is comfy casual or all out fancy! My street style for today is more of street chic. This maxi skirt is my favorite you can dress it up with heels and a fancy shirt like I did here or you can make it more casual with a graphic tee and your most comfy sneaks. I accessorized the outfit with a cross body, trendy gold jewelry and stylish sunnies.
What does your street style look like? Shop mine below.
