Five Fashion Faves For Friday

Hello! I love making fashion posts, especially when I get to talk about the trends that I am currently loving. I also love to read fashion posts, because it gives me inspiration to try new things. Here are some cute ones to try!

1. BALLOON SLEEVES.

Ok, so this trend is BIG right now and I LOVE IT. I think these tops are so feminine and flattering. I love how they look flowy and girly. Get the look here.

The first one I have here is a shorter sleeve baby blue balloon sleeve top. I love this color and the fabric is thick, almost like sweatshirt material. So comfy.

This next one is more flowy and long sleeve. I love the blush (my color of life) and how dressy this is.

2. MIXING METALS

The next thing I’ve been doing is mixing metals. My husband got me a new silver watch for Christmas, and even though I don’t wear a lot of silver jewelry, I love this watch. I have just been mixing my gold bracelets along with it, and I think it looks really nice. I’ve also been mixing in gold rings with my silver ones.

3. ROSE GOLD SNEAKERS

I am so NOT a sneaker person, but I’ll make an exception for these. I love to wear these with leggings and a cute top, and they are so comfy and cute. I get so many compliments on these when I wear them…maybe I am a sneaker person now? Get them (on sale!) here.

4. LEATHER LOOK LEGGINGS

These are so hot right now for the winter, and I really like the look of them. They are still comfy leggings, but a little bit more dressy. I especially love these leggings with a faux leather panel on each side. So cute. Get the look here.

5. HIGH WAISTED JEANS WITH ANKLE ZIP

I love high waisted jeans. They are so flattering, and remind me of the 80’s, which I love. These particular ones are a skinny fit and have a zip ankle. Get them here.

That’s it for my fashion faves! Have a good weekend 🙂

Fall Trend | Embroidery

A huge trend in fashion this season is embroidered flowers on clothing and accessories.  I personally really love this trend because I love flowers and this reminds me of the 90’s!  I remember buying  iron on patches at Gadzooks and putting them on things.  Here are some of my favorite embroidered pieces.

Ive talked about this sleeveless teal colored top with floral embroidery a ton recently on this blog, but I just LOVE it.  It comes in other colors, too.


Another top I love is this black cold shoulder tee with embroidered flower patches.  This is a little bit more dressy, and I love the placement of the embroidery.


Of course, these shorts I mentioned in my recent ZARA post.  I have been wearing these a ton, and they go with anything. They’re just a fancy version of denim shorts, but the high waisted distressed look just works with the roses.

For accessories, this little Topshop clutch is so perfect.  I have a full review and a “what’s in it” here. The embroidery is beautiful, and the pink studs give a little bit of edgy-ness. Love to wear this with a plain colored dress, or jeans and a white tee.

I am seeing embroidered shoes everywhere I go!  I have two shoe favorites here,  first are these little black velvet loafer flats with embroidery.  These are so freaking cute and are so perfect for transitioning to fall.  Similar style here.


Also, these denim wedges with the red rose embroidery are my favorite.  These remind me of the 50’s – something Sandy from Grease would wear!  They are so cute and comfy!  Similar styles here and here.

Do you like this floral embroidery trend?

How to Style | Denim Midi Skirt

Hello!  I am back with another How To Style post for you!  Denim skirts are having a major moment right now in fashion, especially the longer “midi” length that hit mid-calf.  I absolutely love denim skirts, and I think this length is really cute and can transition right into fall.

The skirt I am going to be styling today is a midi length, high waisted, has some distressing on the front and fraying at the bottom, and a slit up the middle.  It’s definitely a statement piece.  These skirts are a bit tricky to style, because you don’t want to lose your waist and look shapeless in them.  Here is what I came up with!

Outfit 1


For this outfit, I paired it with an embroidered teal colored tank.  I tucked it into the skirt to show the high waist detail.  If you wear this with a baggier top like this one, tucking it in really defines your waist.

Love the embroidery detail.

I added some flat sandals with a teal and zebra printed detail (similar here), a tote, and finished it off with some large gold hoop earrings.  This outfit was perfect for walking around the mall with my girls.

Outfit 2


This outfit is very casual – I paired it with a little red and white striped cropped tee.  I love the tie waist on this top.



I added some slip on sneakers and a little crocheted backpack (similar style here).  I kept the jewelry minimal, and grabbed my black aviators.   Really good for running errands or going to the park.

Outfit 3


This outfit is definitely the dressiest, but still very comfortable.  I am wearing the skirt with a mauve colored bodysuit (similar here) – so it’s really fitted and I love the strappy detail at the top.




I have some black wedge heels (similar here) on, and a cute little embroidered clutch.  I added a gold watch, and of course, my gold hoops.

Do you like denim skirts?  Which outfit was your favorite?

Five Fashion Faves For Friday

Hello!  Today I am sharing some accessories that I have been loving lately!  It’s still pretty hot here in Texas, so it’s not QUITE fall fashion time yet, but I have a few things that can work for fall too 🙂

First off – this navy blue sun hat that I picked up from the Nordstrom during the sale.  I think that navy blue is such a flattering color for dark hair, and this hat isn’t too floppy or too stiff- it’s just right.  Being outside so much with the kids, it’s important to protect my face from the sun.  I wear this pretty much every time I go outside!

I couldn’t find the exact one, but I linked a similar style here

The next thing aren’t really new, because hoop earrings have always been my favorite thing and type of earring to wear.  I especially love gold ones- these in particular, because they are so thin.  I also picked these up during the sale.

I love how they look peeking out from my hair, and they go with absolutely everything.  The bigger the hoop, the better!

The next thing are Fanny packs.  Yes, they’re baaaack and they’re totally cute.  You can just call them “belt bags” if you want!  I have one that I wear with workout clothes, and one that I wear with regular clothes.  This one fits my phone just perfect, and even has little reflective trim on it.  I picked it up from F21!

They’re so convenient and hands free!  Similar style here.

Next are loafers.  These are totally in for the upcoming fall season and I am loving them!  They dress up any outfit and look stylish while still being comfy.


I love the embroidery on the black ones, and the gold hardware on the leopard ones!  So CUTE.  Similar loafer styles here.

Lastly are these phone cases.  I recently got a new phone and I got a few cases for it.  The first one here is cork with gold throughout, and the other is clear with pink floating glitter inside. 


 I just love to have a cute phone case, and it’s fun to switch them up.

That’s it for the accessories I’ve been loving!  I’m looking forward to fall fashion posts coming up soon!

I Went to ZARA 

Zara has always been one of my favorite shops.  They always have the latest trends, and literally everything in there calls to me.  It’s just really my style.  Kind of casual, but with a dressy type of flair to it.  I don’t get to go to the actual store very often because it’s about 45 min away…as is pretty much every store except Walmart, but I do get a chance to go every now and then.

I recently picked up a few thangs.

These are their High Waist Floral Bermuda Shorts.


As soon as I saw these, I knew I needed them!  The embroidered flowers are totally 80’s- they remind me of Guns N Roses!  I love that they are distressed and high waisted.  I’m totally into the “mom shorts” trend.

Next, I picked up this skirt.  This is the Frilled Miniskirt.


First off, I love the color.  They call it khaki, but I think it’s more of an army green.  I feel like this color really flatters my skin tone and I just love the soft material.  It has a nice thick waistband and it’s tiered.  It’s a short skirt, but not too short.  I also love this with a plain white tank.

Then I saw this Frilled Floral Print Dress.


If you can’t tell by now, I LOVE FLORAL.  I also love ruffles and “frills”, so when the two are combined, it is heaven!  I love how girly and swingy this dress is.  It’s a light material, and I feel like you could really dress this up or down.  I could also throw a jacket on it and it could take me into fall.

The last thing I have here is this T-shirt with Pleated Sash Belt.

I love black and white stripes, and these flowy sleeves are just everything!  This is so comfy, but still a casual t-shirt.  It could be dressed up or down, too.

Do you guys like ZARA?
