DAMSEL IN DISTRESSED

After a few hectic weeks at my new job, there's nothing I appreciated more than to come home, change out of my heels and into pjs while watching a movie with my family. Don't get me wrong, I love new role and my big office even more, but learning the ropes can really exhaust the mental. I managed to squeeze in a much needed date night in one of my favorite casual styles, denim on denim.

So, how amazing is this skirt?!  What's even better is that I purchased it from Rainbows. Ive been telling you ladies that Rainbow is a great retailer for on-trend inexpensive items.  The distressed skirt is an updated rendition on an otherwise basic denim skirt. Paired with my old navy chambery top and rockstuds, it goes to show that an outfit can be inexpensive and not necessarily look it. It's all about the arrangement. If you're afraid that a shredded skirt may be too sexy, simply add a pair ankle booties, sneakers, or a neutral colored shoe along with a sweater.

With a distressed denim pencil skirt, try…

  • A tailored denim shirt or white silk blouse
  • A pointy-toed nude shoe or bootie (to tone it down)
  • Patent pumps or embellished flats 
  • Oversized sweatshirt or chunky sweater
  • A cross body bag

All White Day Party




We are truly in the dog days of summer. With Labor day but a week or so away, I'm soaking up as much fun in the sun that I can schedule in my hectic life these days. I was able to enlist a few girlfriends for a outdoors day party where I decided to wear all white and added my bikini cage top for some contrast. My distressed white jeans have been my ultimate go-to on non-scorcher days, not to mention my Schutz mules.  


What are your plans for the end of summer?

That 70s Show

Hope you guys had a great and restful weekend. My apologies for the lack of posts, still getting over vacation mode and getting my new work and blog schedule together. Nonetheless, I have a few end of summer posts for you guys coming up. If you're like me, many of you are anxiously awaiting the fall season. One thing for sure, just walking through your favorite store or surfing your favorite clothing site, you'll see a plethora of 70's fashion. Yes, that's right, 70s fashion has made a comeback. Bell bottoms, flare pants, fringe jackets, vest, and anything suede can be seen this fall. True to this aesthetic, indie brand Living Doll L.A. has a firm foot in the door with their fall line of 70's throwback pieces including this rad shirt Im wearing below.

You can tie it in a knot, wear it with bootcut jeans, high waisted tops, denim or suede skirt (very on-trend) for that mellow laid-back Thats so 70s look. I have my eye on a few pieces from Living Doll L.A. that may work in both my work and weekend fall wardrobe like this jacket, bottoms and dress.

FRILLS IN HAWAII

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my family and I recently came home from vacationing in Hawaii for two weeks. We began our trip on the island of Oahu and stayed on Waikiki beach for the first week and flew to the Big Island for the last week. I will have more in depth pictures and reviews of restaurants and the hotels we stayed at along with our nature hikes to the volcanos and waterfall on another post. Today though, I'm sharing a really inexpensive and cute dress I wore while at the Mauna Lani resort.

TARGET DENIM DARE

Thanks to Target for sponsoring this post

Up until last year, I've never been big on wearing jeans. I opted for skirts and dresses due to the amount of versatility they provided me. Not to mention, there weren't really a lot of options for plus sizes. Fast forward to now, the denim options available to us are so vast so much so that you own it to yourself to test them out. Generally, I go for a dark wash in skinny leg and most recently, have become obsessed with bootcut and flare leg from Target's Denizen line. The combination of the two gives me an illusion of length and defintely elongates my frame-score! Not to mention, a darker wash definitely works in most work places paired with a blazer and/or blouse.




Target dared me to come out my comfort zone and test out a pair of denim I would traditionally not go for. So, I did. I went with denim overalls. I could've gone with denim joggers or acid wash which scare me to know avail and so not my style, but with the help of my daughter, I chose denim overalls. I'm still quite iffy on them but I cannot deny the comfort factor of this pair. I love that the leg is more tapered which allows me to add a pair of heels to it to jazz it up, but it looks equally as cute with my Target brand gold sandals.

In this look, I wore them while sight seeing in San Francisco's Mission Disctrict-the perfect background to the bold and daring street art from Mission's Balmy alley.
