Speak faith, Speak hope and Speak love. I’ve come to learn that the key to staying uplifted is speaking positivity over your life and the lives of others.
It’s my 28th Birthday and I’m so blessed and thankful for how far I’ve come!
If you asked what I would be doing this year for my 28th birthday back in December I would have probably said that I was going to be out of the country with my friends. But… instead I’m moving across the country by myself with no friends or family. Talk about a leap of faith. This is the second biggest milestone of my life so I am trying to stay positive and not be too nervous about this HUGE move.
So much to prepare for… looking for a new job, buying new furniture and also finding new restaurants to try and new places to explore. New memories to create in the Year of 28. This is my year of INCREASE. Increase in wealth, health, happiness and love.
In the midst of going through this huge move I was able to do more outfit shoots. This look is one of my favorites. The Who What Wear Collection is definitely one of my favorite collections in Target. There are always some really cute items that would be perfect in any woman’s wardrobe so don’t sleep on them.
The bulk of my look is from the new Who What Wear Collection, jacket and skirt. Cute right!? Both were priced under $40. Paired with a grommet cut off band t-shirt and one of my favorite and most comfortable pairs of Steve Madden heels. Check out more outfit details below!

Have you ever come across a swimsuit that you loved but didn’t want it to just be worn on pool day?
It’s important to be flexible in your wardrobe and keep an open mind. Even the trend of pajamas being worn as casual wear is a pretty dope concept especially with the prints I’ve seen and also mixing with other types of clothing. One thing that I am definitely sold on is wearing a swimsuit as a top or bodysuit within your everyday wardrobe.
There’s been plenty of times that I have come across a really cute swimsuit automatically thought about wearing it as a cute bodysuit instead. Check out my post on Frugal Shopaholics where I talk more about Swimsuit Turing Bodysuits and also so frugal and chic choices for options.
In this outfit post I’m wearing a color bar swimsuit that I absolutely love. I have a Longchamp bag that is the same print so I instantly fell in love with it, and it was under $10! Paired my new found bodysuit with a patent leather skirt from Forever 21 that was only $15. I don’t think anyone can compete with me when it comes to shopping for frugal clothing or anything frugal. My bag is one of three that was purchased from Tj Maxx a few years ago. I got one in Pink, Blue and Black. Such a convenient clutch bag.
Let’s get into these Nike Prestos, they are my favorite sneakers and they make me feel like I’m walking on air, Perfect right? Mint, Yellow, Nude and Black are all the colors I’ve purchased in the last few months. Mostly from Nordstrom online and the Nike Factory Outlet here in Charlotte, NC.
A lot of people sleep on Forever 21 but I have found some of the cutest pieces there that when people ask they don’t believe that I got them from there. My oversized denim jacket is from Forever 21 and it’s really good quality denim. It was only $35! Not too bad. Check out more outfit details below!

Why is it that year after year we get to June and we reflect on where we are in life and either freak out that the year is almost over and we feel like we haven’t accomplished everything we planned or we look at how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown. Both are normal reactions but I find myself doing a lot of freaking out sometimes when I should really just be thinking about how much I’ve grown and learned in the last few months. All in all, enjoying the moment in Denim. I’ve learned more about blogging, styling and myself and my ability to overcome things that could’ve taken me out but I persevered. I owe all of that to God and family! Continue reading “Enjoying the moment in Denim.”
Vertical stripes definitely are my new thing, I could definitely use more of a taller and slimmer look. The stripes I’ve worn in this post and my previous post have done just that.
Pinstripe & structured tops are my absolute favorites of the season. Every chance I get to buy something unique I jump on it especially if its a good price. I’ve found that stores like Marshall’s, Tj Maxx and & Charlotte Russe carry some of the nicer more affordable tops and bottoms and are somewhat “slept on”. Which is fine with me because those are stores I frequent and leaves more for me!
Im back! I took a brief hiatus. Its such a struggle working full time and having a passion for other things outside of work. If you have a business or a blog I know you feel where I am coming from. But I’m not complaining whatsoever, because I love being busy. If I’m not at work then I am shopping for myself or my clients which keeps life interesting.
It’s 12 am Wednesday morning… and I’m drawing a blank. Have you ever just felt so drained by everything? With work, blogging and keeping up with loved ones, I feel like I’m 5 different women and they are all tired.
