(outfit details here)
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I just got back from my trip to Chicago. Traveling solo, hanging with my girlfriend, eating good food, and seeing the sites was just what the doctor ordered. Although it was hard to leave my family, it always feels good to spending QT with myself. This isn’t only beneficial to me but to my family as well. Taking time out out for myself is how I show myself love. Practicing self love is so important because when I’m feeling good about me, I’m at my best for them. Here are 5 ways I practice self love and make sure I’m operating at a high frequency. (more…)
Bae and I try to take time out of our crazy week to spend some quality time. No matter how long you’ve been together, don’t EVER stop doing the things that made you fall in love in the first place.
When you think about dates, most people think of date nights, but what about daytime dates? This look is perfect daytime dates! Sexy yet sophisticated. During the Spring/Summer time the key is to dress in layers and keep your heels low and comfortable. If you choose to wear shorts, pairing them with a blazer will keep you warm in air conditioned environments. If where you live is as humid as Florida, try to keep the fabrics light and airy. Lets get into the details and daytime date ideas below.
Happy Sunday! Hope you a great weekend. This weekend was so relaxing. Which I deserved after a crazy month end at work. Saturday, I got a much needed hour massage with my bestie and ended the day relaxing by the pool with my family.
I dont think there is one person under the age of 40 who hasn’t heard the buzz around Kylie Jenners lip kit’s. I’ll admit that when the lip kits first came out, I didn’t want to purchase them. Even if I did, the day it dropped the site crashed and sold out immediately. With the Kardashian/Jenner clan all over tv and social media, I just knew it was all hype and per usual, everyone was eating out the palm of their hands. That was until I kept seeing girls around town with this vibrant red lipstick on. You know I love me some red lipstick, so I had to ask what they were wearing. Every time the answer was, “Mary Jo K lipkit by Kylie Jenner”. I don’t know about you, but if I hear about something three times I have to try it out.
I am sooooo geeked!!! I Absolutely love Victoria Beckham! Wife, mother, businesswoman, fashion designer, model, and singer. She wears many hats and does it with class. What’s not to love? I’ve been a fan of the style icon since her Posh Spice days. Yes, she was in the late 90’s British pop supergroup Spice Girl’s. If I wasn’t Scary Spice, I was definitely Posh Spice lol (comment below which Spice Girl was your favoirte). Other than being obsessed with the Spice Girls as a kid, I love the name she has made for herself in the fashion industry. She launched her fashion line in 2008. In 2011 she was named UK designer brand of the year. Major Boss. She has done countless collaborations with high profile brands and I’m excited that she is doing an affordable line with Target.
The collection features pieces inspired by the experiences she’s had with her daughter. and features fashion for women, girls, toddlers and babies. The collection screams Spring, featuring beautiful pastels, florals, bold pop’s of color. I cannot wait to get some mommy and daughter looks for Kyleah and I. Here are a few of my favorite items from the women’s and girls section. Lets get into it…
Something about clothes that make you feel like your wearing pj’s all day long. Throw on some cute sandals… LIFE! When I fist saw this jumpsuit on the wrack I was on the fence. But as soon as I put that cotton blend on my skin, I was sold! So comfortable and versatile.
Off the shoulder tops seem to be my new obsession! I picked this one up from Forever 21 for $ 10.43. I love that that the top is ribbed and has a comfy t-shirt type of feel. Also love that it’s neutral and can be worn different ways. You can keep it simple like I did here with jeans and sandals or something fun like layering it with a sleeveless long vest a mini skirt and high boots. So many options! How would you wear this top?

Its Monday and I’m dreading getting out of this bed. I can’t believe its the last weekend of February and I’m desperately in need of a vacation. Bae and I went to a my friend/coworkers birthday party which was mardi gras themed. If you follow me on Snapchat, you know it was pretty lit. Other than that I ran errands and the normal mommy duties. This year I hit the ground running towards my goals. Only thing with that is that you can get burned out quickly. Sorry for no post last week but I just had to press the pause button and get my entire life in order. Hope you understand. <3

My good friend moved back to North East Florida and we went shopping for her new snatched body. While I was picking out looks for her wardrobe, I managed to snag me a few pieces as well. This belled sleeve top from Charlotte Russe was my favorite find. It was only $19.99! The pairing options with this top is endless! But for this look I kept it clean and simple with a tan cotton blend pencil skirt. What I loved about this look is you look dressed up but the fabrics were actually comfortable.
