If you know me well, you know that I am not afraid to wear colorful makeup, clothing, accessories or shoes. I love to accent chic looks with a pop of color and today I’m bringing you the dress that y’all have been loving and I adore it! So, here’s why color is great for the summer months. Depending upon your skins undertones, there are certain colors that make your skin look vibrant, dewy and youthful. I recently had a chance to collaborate with Mint Julep Boutique again and when I saw this dress, I knew I had to share it. This maxi dress compliments a variety of skin tones and hair colors. I paired my dress with a cute pair of sandals and yellow fringe earrings. When the dress is already a statement piece, simple but fun accessories are all you need. So, you may be wondering how you can purchase both items, well here’s the link:

This isn’t a fashion post, it’s a real life post. Social media is a blessing and it’s a curse at times. In reality, there are way too many people doubting themselves and striving to obtain things they see other people with on the internet. Everyone wants to be flawless, have the biggest house, finest car and nicest wardrobe. But, what do all of those things matter if you’re empty inside? The truth is, I’m not flawless and I don’t strive to be. I have physical scars and my skin isn’t perfect. I live my truth. I love who I am.
There are some people who always define others by what they do for a living and then the other half of people constantly try to minimize what people do. You know, the ones who never pay attention when you tell them what you do? So, if you listen to society, you’ll never measure up. I know that I am not solely who I spent many years in undergraduate and graduate school to become(a therapist). I am much more. Degrees are avenues to help us reach more people, but they should never define us. At the end of the day, I want to be an woman that is known for being real.
Whether I have 1 follower or 30k followers, I want to be someone who reminds people they don’t have to fit into a mold to be beautiful. We live in a world that constantly wants us to scream who we are and what we do for a living, but at the end of the day it’s who we are on the inside that matters. I challenge you, if you’re reading this…
Look in the mirror every morning and know you are worthy of love and worthy of all the things God has for you simply because you are His precious prize. Don’t allow the world to determine who you are. Keep your eyes set on the one who matters most. Our worth is found in our Father whose love never changes. You, my friend are loved, treasured and set apart… You are beautiful the way God made you and never let anyone tell you otherwise.
Happy Friday, loves! I’m sure many of you have wondered when I was going to wear my hair down, lol. Well, the southern humidity doesn’t always cooperate and quite frankly, your girl loves herself a pretty top knot! So, tomorrow my hair will be back up again, lol.
Wardrobe Details: I am in love with this cute @freepeople blouse from @macys! Dress it up or dress it down and you’re sure to be the chicest lady on the block! And, yes! I’m still rocking my fur mules! 😊What are your Friday evening plans?
Whether you’re traveling, heading to work or going to the gym, staying hydrated is always important. Contigo reached out to me and sent me their Contigo AutoSeal Chill. I have a lot of stainless steal cups from other brands, but I have to admit, I was so impressed when I used it. First, it’s Olympic blue! I mean.. How much better can you get? We’ve all been watching the Olympics and seeing all of the hard work the amazing athletes put into training and competing. So, it’s important to support Team USA. Second, staying hydrated is important in order to be healthy, but drinking plenty of water also helps keep your skin glowing. And, last but not least, who doesn’t love cold drinks? The design of the Contigo chill allows drinks to stay cold for 28 hours. It also had an auto sealing cap which keeps spills from happening, and it keeps germs out! We are still in the midst of cold and flu season, so this is definitely a huge positive. Its also lightweight and compact. It’s not bulky. I carried my Contigo Chill this weekend as I was moving about at the airport. It fits nicely in my handbag and it’s also not too bulky to carry alone. Overall, I would rate the Contingo Chill high on a scale of 1-10. I’d say the Contigo Chill is in the compares to other stainless steel chills and it’s cost efficient. So, if your looking for a chill that fits your lifestyle, be sure to head on over to Contigo and check out their line of chills. There are various designs and price points that fit into every budget. Thanks so much for the gift, Contigo!
The cutest dress with the prettiest sleeves is featured on the blog today! I can’t say that I’ve pulled out my spring clothes just yet, but I have started incorporating brighter colors into my winter wardrobe. I’m not someone that pulls out my sandals and shorts until I know the weather is going to stay warm. Until then, I’m the one that’s having fun mixing winter and spring pieces in my wardrobe! 👌🏾I hope you had the best day, loves! Come talk to me in the comments. Happy Thursday! ❤️
Raise your hand if you love wearing festive Christmas colors! ♥️ Well, you’re in luck because today on the blog, I’m showing you how to style one of our favorite holiday colors.. Red! The holidays are filled with so many events in which we have to dress up for, but don’t forget to wear your bright colors. Red is a vibrant color that looks good on any skin tone. I’ve paired both looks with red booties. I love these shoes…Theyre not only comfy, but they’re so stylish and fashion forward. Happy Styling, loves!
This dress from JCrew is amazing! I paired it with my Gabriel Union jacket from NY&Company and my slouch booties for a fun Sunday look. I love stripes, but you know I had to add a little pop of color.. So, red earrings it is! Don’t be afraid to add random pops of color to a striped outfit. Red looks fabulous with almost any color stripes. Own your personal style because you are beautiful.. Just the way you are.
I hope you had a wonderful day!
