Little Red Dress

Hey everyone--

Wearing red always makes me feel like a million bucks. It's very glam and makes a fierce statemement. Everyone needs a little red dress in their closet. This Deb Shops dress is the perfect dress for feeling fabulous. It's also a great transition look for your summer to fall wardrobe. I chose to dress it down by wearing strappy flats and a black tote. 

To accessorize, I paired the look with a flashy cocktal ring, a chunky statement necklace, black cat-eye sunnies and a black hair wrap.. you know just the essentials. When wearing a hair wrap, I feel like a vintage maven. It really adds a touch of glamour to an everyday look.

Happy Sunday!

Baydian Collaboration (Summer 2014)

Hey everyone--

Today, I am featuring Baydian Scarves! Baydian is a company that sells gorgeous, statement making scarves. My friend Tamara Holder is the designer and owner of Baydian, LLC. She is from the beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados and she moved to Columbus, Ohio in 2006. Her mission is to provide a selection of items that express her Carribean heritage and allow you to make your own peraonal fashion statement.

I had so much fun working with Tamara and showing off these vibrant scarves. She is so creative, I never knew there were so many ways to wear a scarf. Check out the Baydian website and blog to learn how to tie your scarf in a unique way. The bow head wrap is my absolute favorite! 

These two looks are really great for transitioning into fall. Tamara and me love bright colors and I've been trying to wear my brights before fall officially arrives.

Be sure to check out the rest of her scarves and stay tuned for my fall collaboration with Baydian! Coming in the next couple of weeks!

Happy shopping all!

Pineapple Under The Sea

Hey everyone--

I apologize in advance for the quality of these photos. I'm not sure why they turned out so fuzzy. It was a stormy day at the beach and my camera lens is not used to the salty, sandy air. 

However, I think a dress this cute makes up for the picture quality. The fruit print trend, has possibly been my favorite trend this summer and I find pineapple prints to be the most adorable of all! If you are pineapple obsessed, this dress is a must-have for you.  This +Deb Shops pineapple print dress is a steal. I paired it with a black bandeau, a black tote bag, brown weave flats and a black banded hat. 

Feed your fruit obsession.

Happy Monday!

Parrot Paradise

Hey everyone--

+Deb Shops came down south with me to the beautiful Florida beaches.  I stayed in an absolutely gorgeous resort and I was pampered for a week, thanks to my sister! The only bad thing about the trip was that it didn't last nearly long enough. I will write more about my trip later, because tonight I have a paper to write! 

I love love love the tropical print trend this year! I had been searching for a fun bird print for quite some time and this Deb Shops bikini has the absolute cutest parrot print. It's a bright and flirty and the perfect bikini for summer traveling! I paired it with a pretty, feminine crochet vest cover-up and high-waisted denim shorts. I accessorized with these fabulous royal blue sandals, gold bangles and colorful statement earrings!

I hope you're all soaking up the sun! Happy Thursday!

This tank has an adorable open back cut out that is perfect for showing off a cute bandeau or sports bra.

Dot Your Eyes

Hey everyone--

I am a bow person.  I always have been and I'm pretty sure that I always will be. I'm also a sucker for the element of surprise. These are two of the many reasons why I have fallen in love with this striped maxi from Deb Shops. If you are looking for a classic maxi with a twist, this is the dress for you. Pair it with a black bandeau and some amazing taupe wedges. This look is so fun to accessorize. You can add a few bold accessories to really pull it all together.  I chose a color block tote, a chunky bracelet, and polka dot sunglasses. These polka dot sunnies are a gorgeous shade of pink and they are so flirty! You cannot go wrong putting these sunglasses in your life, they are ONLY $4 right now!!

Happy Monday!
