Christmas Fly!

 

It’s that time of year again! Everyone is preparing for their annual Holiday Parties and you, ironically, have absolutely NOTHING to wear! You can’t just show up in any old rages because you have to match everyone’d Christmas Fly.

In this post, I have compiled 3 different outfits for 3 different types of holiday parties.

We all go to them and someone hosts an ugly Christmas sweater party at least once in their life but this outfit is a little different. We still keep the ugly sweater theme BUT we’re making it cute too!

The casual holiday attire is exactly what it means…CASUAL! Unlike the ugly sweater outfit it’s casual but not too causal that you just lounge around the house. This outfit is prefect for the office holiday party.

Now I don’t know who exactly hosts formal holiday parties but someone out there does and if you’re invited to one you must come prepared to slay! So dress up in white and pair it with your baddest red heels, bag, and lips! The gold earrings make the outfit pop by adding a bright element to the outfit.

I think you’re ready! You are officially ready to head to the party and make heads turn! No one will be able to tell that you had nothing to wear and hey it can be our little secret. I won’t tell if you won’t!

2017 Christmas Wishlist!!

IMG_3050

 

The Christmas holiday is near and like everyone else I have created my very own wishlist! Now what’s the likelihood that I’ll actually receive any of these as gifts? Well there’s a super small chance that I’ll actually receive any of them and I’ll have to buy them for myself but hey that’s why it’s called a wishlist right?

Lately I’ve been doing some window shopping and these items sparked my interest.

This item was on my list last year as well but I just absolutely love this James Avery Renaissance Key Pendant. Something I’ve said for the past few years is that I want that special someone who has the ONLY key to my heart. I know it’s cliche but that’s something I want for Christmas at some point in life.

Something warm and cozy is also on my list and what better way to stay warm than with my favorite character Mickey Mouse! I noticed this cute Mickey Mouse Silhouette Sweatshirt in the Disney Store a few days ago and it’s been on my mind ever since. This sweatshirt is cute and simple which is what I love and it’s timeless.

Now I love what my next wishlist item stands for. The Kay Jewelers Personalized Color Stone Claddagh Ring.  The two hands represent FRIENDSHIP, the heart represents LOVE,  and the crown represents LOYALTY. This ring can also be worn in different ways to determine you relationship status. I just love this ring and I do believe it would be something neat to pass down to my kids someday.

I am a photogenic person an love taking pictures but getting them printed seems like a hassle sometimes! This item is fairly new and I want to give it a try. Having a portable printer, when using it correctly, can be a time saver and I can print my pictures right then and there. This HP Sprocket Photo Printer  is not only cute but it’s convenient and stylish.

Last but not least I am finally embracing the traveler in me! This year has been one for traveling and I want to be able to document my travels and where I’ve been. This is why I decided to put the Personalized Scratchable World Map. I want to be able to remember where I’ve been and I think this is a fun way to do it.

That’s it! That’s my Christmas Wishlist! Is there anything on your Christmas Wishlist? Something you can’t keep your eyes off of? Please share it with me in a a comment below! Happy Wishing!

Couples Wedding Attire Guide

We are still in wedding season and there are couples out there who need help! The real question is…“What do you wear to a wedding?” Now the answer to that question varies. Firstly, what kind of wedding are you and your Love Bug attending? Is it a beach wedding or is it a traditional wedding? You have to know where you’re going before you know how to dress!

I have compiled 5 different outfits for 5 different types of weddings for you and your significant other that will make everyone’s head turn!

 

Casual Wedding

We all go to the traditional casual wedding which is great but some of us an get a tad bit too comfortable and too casual! You don’t have to go all out but don’t go as if you’re going to the grocery store. Simple dresses or skirts with a natural look for the Mrs. and simple dress pants with a simple button down for the Mr.!

Semi-Formal Wedding

Now if the wedding you’re attending isn’t casual BUT it isn’t too formal you need to dress SEMI-FORMAL! This includes your cute dark cocktail dresses and suits!

 

Beach Wedding.jpeg

It’s my dream to attend a beach wedding AND to have a beach wedding of my own but people think it’s hard to dress for the beach but in all reality it’s very simple! Firstly, high heels of ANY sort is a NO-NO! Keep is simple and keep it cute with sandals so you won’t sink in the sand! You should think breezy, comfortable, and weather appropriate which means you need to think about where you live exactly!

Drk & Sophisticated Wedding

You receive your wedding invitation and you have to get all sexy and sophisticated! It’s important to go DARK because dark is not only sexy but it’s also sophisticated and mysterious. Black is the go-to and should be paired with colors such as red or red-orange to give the look a pop of color and your Mr. will be in a traditional tuxedo!

Black Tie Wedding

Dark and Sophisticated is completely different than Black Tie! Black Tie is toned down versus Dark and Sophisticated. The dress is a simple black cocktail dress but your Mr. will still be wearing his classic black tuxedo!

White Tie Wedding

The ULTIMATE type of formal…the kind of wedding that can be considered A ROYAL WEDDING…the WHITE TIE WEDDING! With this type of wedding it’s a MUST that you come looking like you’re related to the Queen of England! For the ladies you’ll arrive in full length ball gowns, in brown or black, and glamorous hair and makeup. The gentleman shall arrive in a tuxedo with a tail, a bow tie, formal shoes, and white gloves for dancing if you feel the need for them! “If you are looking for inspiration then check out this wedding suit and tuxedo page for some fashionable ideas.You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into the Great Gatsby at this wedding!

Also here is a wedding guest style guide for an extra boost!

Now you and you’re Love Bug will be the HOTTEST couple at the wedding well next to the bride and groom of course! Just remember that it’s not your spotlight to steal! Happy wedding season to you all!

 

 

Dressing Room Dreams

DREAM DRESSING ROOM 2

 

We all have been inside a dressing room at some point but lets be honest…you don’t really enjoy being inside a boring dressing room that’s the size of a shoe box. A dressing room should be a fun space for you to try on clothes and get ready for your fun filled day or event.

I recently discovered this company called Arhaus and was inspired to create a moodboard of what would be in my dream dressing room. For years I’ve dreamed of building my dream home and of course as a fashion-forward woman and a fashion blogger I have to have my perfect dressing room! Getting ready for your day should be fun and with a little motivation not boring and uninspiring. There are a few must have items I want in my home dressing room to make it a fun functional space.

1. Comfy Circular Couch

I’m all about having my friends help me get ready when I need them to and they should always make themselves comfortable when in my home. Besides a soft king sized bed what else screams comfort? A nice comfy couch! The 4-piece sectional is the perfect center piece for my dressing room where my friends can sit back, relax, and possibly witness a mini fashion show from yours truly.

**Check out other sectional sofa options here!

 

2. A Bookcase or A Shoecase?

Everything has a purpose but some items have multiple purposes! I’ve turned this gorgeous bookcase into the perfect shoecase! I have a high volume of shoes and begin able to see all of my shoes in one place makes me joyous!

 

3. My Room in Crystal LIGHTS!

I’m not a huge fan of chandeliers but this one was screaming my name! The color makes it feel vintage and the crystals bring out it’s extra beauty. It makes the room pop!

 

4. Simple Vanity

All dressing rooms need a vanity!

5. Photobomb & Music

Being a blogger I take pictures to showcase my outfits and what better way to take pictures than with a mounted camera and your favorite music. There would be a designated spot for a mounted camera and a space for a wall speaker with a mounted holder for my iPhone or tablet to listen to my personalized playlist.

 

6. Accessory Island

If you have a space for your clothes and shoes you most definitely need a space for your accessories! This “accessory island” would be closer to the shoecase and would hold my sunglasses, earrings, necklaces, lip sticks, headbands, and anything other accessory that I own.

 

7. 3-Way Mirror

When you’re getting ready you have to know how you look in the outfit to determine if you’re going to “go through with it.” A 3-way mirror should do the trick! You can see yourself in 3 different angles and show off just a tad bit.

8. A Little Culture

I love different cultures along with my own culture but I love the concept of Ganesha that brings good luck and fortune. When I see artwork of Ganesha I become breath taken by the vibrant colors so it’s a definite that I have a beautiful Ganesha piece in my dressing room.

There you have it! My dream home dressing room! A room that matches my style, my comfort, and a space where I can hide whenever I need to do so. Be sure to check out Arhaus for more beautiful furniture pieces for any room in you home!

 

Fashion Road Trip Essentials

Road trips are so much fun! You get to see wonderful sites along the way and you get to see friends, like I did, upon arrival after the long drive. Like many, I want to be comfortable while sitting in the car for such a long period of time. For me I was traveling to Houston,TX to visit friends which is a 4hr and 45min trip.

Before I left I packed 3 essential items that were to go with me inside my car while I was driving to my destination!

1. FLIP FLOPS 

When I drive long distances I love to kick my shoes off just like I’m at home! Flip flops are the easiest shoes, besides flats, that I can kick off and toss to the side.

 

2. SUNGLASSES

Living and driving through Texas during the summer mean the sun is out and shining so bright that it literally blinds you! Within my car alone I have 3 pairs of sunglasses: one in my drivers door, one in my glasses holder, and one in my glove box. I may have to wear my prescription glasses with my sunglasses but at least I can see!

 

3. DUFFEL BAG

You may be wondering, “why a duffel bag?” Well I had 2 duffel bags: one for clothes and one for food. My food duffel remained in my front passenger seat for easy access to snack while on the road. Is it fashion? Not exactly BUT the bag was cute!

 

When you go on your next road trip I hope you think of my 3 essentials! They may come in handy when you plan your next trip!

Throwing 1960s Shade

It’s officially Summer and with summer comes the cute maxi dresses and sassy sandals but here in Texas there is one thing that’s a summer MUST! SHADES!  Warby Parker has some beautiful sunglasses that are 1960s vintage with a modern twist created by a college student. With 49 locations in the United States and 2 locations in Ontario, Canada you can’t be caught with sunglasses that are out of style.

When I first seen this 2017 Summer collection I immediately thought of a 1960s pin-up girl. This collection screams 1960s with the unique shapes and bright colors which is perfect for summer outfits!

Here are my 3 favorite pairs with my outfit recommendations!

 

F_SU17_12_EMAIL_SUN_Laurel_Clementine_013_OA_COMPF_SU17_15_PROMO_Sun_Clementine_Espresso-Tortoise_006_OA_COMPWith these Espresso Tortoise Clementine shades I see bright red lipstick and a cute simple outfit! When I say simple I mean black and white simple. I even see these shades paired with a simple black summer dress. These shades speak for themselves when they say, “I’m here and in the flesh throwing shade!”

I also see these two pairs of sunglasses going great with a vintage outfit! If you are a pro at using the scarf for vintage hairstyles then you should definitely consider purchasing these glasses to complete your outfit.

These Oak colored Stanton shades can be perfectly paired with a bright yellow or pink top with the bottoms of your choice to create a casual summer outfit. They have a rustic vintage feel that you don’t see in sunglasses but this pair is perfect for this collection.

 

 

Now this pair of Jet Black Piper sunglasses with Rose Gold lenses is a MUST & it can go with practically anything! I see these sunglasses being paired with a bright vibrant maxi dress to balance the darkness. They create a mysterious persona about is dark yet sexy!

 

Here are the other sunglasses that are in the Warby Parker Summer 2017 Collection:
