Hi Dolls! 

Hope you fabulous ladies are enjoying this beautiful weather! Summer has finally arrived and if you could not tell by the weather, you most definitely could from all the floral prints fluttering the streets! The typical floral look can get repetitive but with these new floral patterns, you can rock the trend as if it is brand new! Let us get to it, shall we? 

Floral patterns will always be a statement in the summer, whether it be on dresses, shorts, tops or even handbags! As the wise Miranda Priestly once said, "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking." This year, the floral patterns are different from what we have previously seen year after year. The patterns have become more wild and bright and contrast off dark colors.

This dress I found at American Eagle and I absolutely love it! Not only was it a good price but it is also the perfect dress for summer! It has the floral pattern but it is more quiet and reserved. The dress is dark which helps the florals pop more. I love the way it flows and is not tight fitting so you will not have to worry about sweating in the summer heat! This is definitely a dress you can wear to lunch with the girls, on a casual date by the water, or even spice it up with some wedges like I did and wear it to a special event! 

Now I know what you are thinking, “florals, how original”. Check out the newest patterns and you will find that there are so many ways to spice up the original floral look. Contrast it with a dark colored dress like mine or make it pop with some fun, bright colors but whichever style you choose, make sure to work it girl (:

Take the Plunge with a Bodysuit

Hello, beautiful! Happy Friday! Are you looking forward to the nice weather this weekend as much as I am?! Literally I feel like it has been raining for 40 days and 40 nights. At my day full time gig as an assistant buyer for Chadwicks of Boston we have been busy planning for spring/summer 2018 while wrapping up winter/holiday 2017 photo shoots. Anyway, let's get to this week's look.

This plunging top is actually a bodysuit! That's right it is one piece, every time I put it on it brings me back to ballet class. This bodysuit is from Tobi featuring a plunging v-neckline and a dolman sleeve. I love this piece because it is versatile, you could dress it up or dress it down. For this post I chose to dress it up with this skirt by Tribal. When I managed the boutique we sold this line, they have great quality items. The shoes (from DSW) sport a snake print giving this look a little pattern play.

This summer I plan on pairing this bodysuit with jean shorts for a more casual look. This is my first bodysuit since ballet in high school but I love it. This one even features snaps so it's easier to use the restroom. When wearing a plunging v-neckline I suggest wearing sticky boobs, like cups so the girls will stay in place.

Bodysuits are a trend worth getting into. Check more out on Tobi and get 50% off your first order! Well fash dolls, till next time.

Stay Sassy & God Bless!

 

Oshkosh Called, They want their Overalls Back

Hello, beautiful! Happy Friday! I hope this week has treated you well. I have one of my bestie's weddings this weekend & I can't wait to be able to stand next to her on her big day. The same friend inspired my to buy my first pair of overalls since my childhood. My second job in high school was as a sales associate at Oshkosh B'Gosh, you know the kids clothing store? Overalls were in high demand during my time there. Now they are one of the hottest trends for adults coming in overall skirts, pants, or shorts (pictured). Keep scrolling to see more details.

I love the overall shorts. I think they are a fun spring/summer trend. Easy for the weekend or to throw on over your bathing suit when you hit the beach for the day. This particular one piece I got from Macy's online, they literally only had once size left. My friend got hers from the GAP outlet. 

For a fun yet casual look I have outfitted my overalls with a crop top, espadrille wedges, & a choker. No weekend warrior outfit is complete without a coffee in hand. In this outfit I feel like 90's grundge meets a hint of girl next door. 

Maybe this trend isn't for you or maybe you want to give it a shot but are hesitant. If that is you I would suggest maybe starting out with the overall skirt. I feel like that is a smoother transition. Like dresses or jumpsuits overalls are a great throw & go instant outfit. Life can be crazy so simplicity is our friend.

Well fash dolls that concludes today's post. I hope my overall look has given you some outfit inspo. I find that it is always refreshing to go outside our outfit comfort zone. I definitely stepped out of mine with this look. Have a great weekend.

Stay Sassy & God Bless!

 

Giving Fall the Cold Shoulder

Hello fash dolls! Giving fall the cold shoulder but, not really. A major trend that has been on the fashion scene is the cold shoulder. This can be seen on sweaters, tops, & dresses. Who would have thought a top with no shoulders could be so hot? Women everywhere are falling for the cold shoulder because no matter your size or age your shoulders will always be a smooth. Not to mention it is a subtly sexy way to show a little skin.

This specific cold shoulder sweater is from K Posh Boutique. I paired it with my new fav lucky brand jeans & black perfed booties. This sweater is cozy yet fabulous. Not only is it showcasing the cold shoulder trend but has this awesome sheer blouse detail in the back.

Try this trend for yourself! Fash dolls I wish you a fabulous long weekend. Till next time!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Give your Boyfriend's Closet a Try

If you are single, fear not! Sometimes taking a style note from the guys isn't a bad thing. The boyfriend trend has been around for some time. Now  I am not saying to go shopping in the men's department (but I am not going to stop you either). What is the boyfriend look? It is a bit more of a relaxed, looser, boxier fit.

Shown is a longer more boxier boyfriend blazer with a feminine twist which is the animal print roll cuff. The jeans are also a more relaxed boyfriend fit feminized with heels. The key to pulling off the "boyfriend" look is to always add a hint of feminism. I balanced this look with this awesome bow bag.

Boyfriend + Feminine Twist = One chic look

This is a really simple way to put together a chic outfit. Give it a try for yourself, you won't regret it! Happy Styling!

Stay Sassy + God Bless xo
