Bey Day

Dress: Topshop from Nordstrom //Shoes: Head Over Heals // Jewelry: Dillard’s

I’ve been wanting to do an ode to Queen B ever since Lemonade dropped last year. It took some serious cojones to drop such a heavy visual album like that. And when you think about the body of work she has created all you can do is bow down to a true queen. And then 4:44 drops and I can’t even deal! I mean….LEGACY, LEGACY, LEGACY.

So when one of my co-workers gifted me this bat (which I know what you are thinking, it’s an odd gift but when it comes to gifts I welcome them all) all I had to do was find the dress to lemonade the heck out of a post. Obvi that the dress is not Cavalli like in the video but it is the chicest brand around, Topshop.

I keep telling you guys that I have some sort of fashion ESP when it comes to predicting colors and trends so write this down when I tell you that mustard will be a pretty big deal this fall. Gah’on, take notes.

At any rate I know it’s a sort of a two for one special on September 4th but time is of the essence (cliche; sorry I ain’t sorry).

Happy Bey Day!

Until the next post,

XOXO

Double Oh Romper!

Romper: Express // Earrings: Baublebar // Shoes: Loui et Cie @ Head Over Heals

Facebook went cray a couple of weeks ago with [an epic] pic of Sean Connery in his days of 007 rocking a short romper. And so the question to all males around the world was “would you rock that?” And why not?!

Who doesn’t love a good romp…er… Focus! Clear your mind of those dirty thoughts. I am obsessed with the cold shoulder trend. So it clearly doesn’t get any better to wear a romper with a cold shoulder. Can you say showstopper? I wore this dress to someone’s graduation and it truly is the perfect summer look. Adding a touch of blush with Baublebar’s piñata tassel earrings  perfectly complemented this powder blue ensemble.

So in the heat of the summer stay cool and on trend with a cute cold shoulder anything, or a romper. If you can get both you lucked out because this look is only available online in petite.

I heart you for reading and until the next post,

XOXO

Low Romance

Blouse and Shorts: Aria // Earrings: Baublebar // Necklace: Timewarp // Booties: Head Over Heels (sale)

Happy Mardi Gras!

I had all the ingredients to make this post: green, purple, and gold. In this case the gold was more like a canary yellow, but still you get the point. And always the psychic trendsetter that I would like to think I am, you may want to mark my words when I tell you that all variations of yellow will be quite haute this spring. Write it down and go buy yourself that yellow (or mustard) blazer, dress, or top.

Romantic blouses such as this one which have a little, or in other cases a lot, of ruffles are on trend. You will see quite of few in floral prints in the upcoming weeks.

And last but not least, I absolutely love this vintage coin necklace from Time Warp boutique on Government St., in Baton Rouge.

Until the next post!

XOXO,

Hay girl (or boy) hay it’s Valentines Day!

In past years I have griped of no one wearing red or pinks on this day but this year I find myself being a little hypocritical. Let me explain. We all understand the over commercialization of the holidays. We get it. But it certainly gives bloggers, social media coordinators, and communications professionals something to post.

As I was shopping for others yesterday I found myself telling those helping me find something “I don’t want anything too big, or too expensive. I honestly think this day is a little silly.” I think morally we should always strive (lord knows I am NOT perfect and that my attitude is not always 100) to think of others, offer help when needed, and give without any expectations of the other person giving you something in return. That’s the way it should be. Now, do not get me wrong because the flip slide to this story is that I strongly believe in establishing boundaries and respect among friends. And you know sometimes people tend to over care, over share, and over step. Word to the wise. #stayinyourlane

BUT…. that is not what this post is about. Last year the off the shoulder trend dominated the summer and it is fascinating how strongly it has transgressed through the winter/fall. This winter, still, it is all about the shoulders. Whether it is off the shoulder or a cold shoulder, it is undeniable that this style is a dominant one right now.

I love everything about this topshop top. The style, the powder pink color, and the trumpet sleeves. The opposite of skinny jeans are these high waisted bell bottom jeans, which if worn with a high enough heel elongates your body. And I am obsessed with the tassel trend in jewelry. I find myself in the constant hunt for tassel necklaces and earrings. These hot pink ones just give me life.

Anyways, I have said too much. On the real and for realzies my wish for you is to have a wonderful day filled with love and laughter. And hey, a gift or two here and there would not be so bad, eh?

Until the next post, CIAO CIAO loves. Happy Valentines Day!

XOXO,

P.S. How beautiful was Beyoncé’s performance at the Grammy’s!!! She was a byzantine beauty and a goddess in her own right. And Blue Ivy stole my heart!!!

OBRFW Fashion Show

This past Saturday Baton Rouge fashionistas dressed in black and white to attend the Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week (OBRFW) fashion show hosted by the very talented and charismatic, Chenese Lewis (pictured above) . The show featured the collections from OBRFW founder Brandon Campbell, LSU fashion design alumni, Juju’s boutique, just to name a few.

It was a lively night with the Jupiter downtown parade in full swing outside of the Louisiana State Museum, and the amazing view of our state capitol serving as a back drop for the fashion show.  And I have to admit that everyone there looked beautiful!

Until the next post!

XOXO!

A Target must have

Who doesn’t LOVE Target? Am I right?!!! The prices are comparable to Walmart, no long lines, and an amazing selection of items. I am there at least once a week. The designer collaborations are also amazing, and this year 3.1 Phillip Lim is the designer collaborating with Target. Missoni collaborated with Target last year (I think) and the collection sold out immediately. But this sweater should be on your list! I first saw it on Jessica Alba and it was so adorable, but everything looks great on her right? And a week ago it was on Nikki Hilton. It’s celebrity coveted, and approved, for $29.99. And you need a comfy sweater for winter! I was going to wait and do a post with it on but why should I hold good fashionable information.

The link below the picture should take you directly to the item on target’s website, there is ONE small left in Target on Siegen lane in Baton Rouge. Just FYI. They are going fast!!

Have a fun weekend!!! XO!
