Trending For Fall

Hey guys can you believe that Fall is will be here on Friday. Even though it may not feel like Fall in the south, there's nothing wrong with being prepared. I've been doing my research by looking at Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, and magazines to figure out the upcoming trends. I found a few that I really love and to my surprise, some pieces were already in my closet. Here are a few wardrobe items that are trending for Fall.



What I Wore To My Loft Event

If you didn't know on Friday I hosted my first in-store event. I know big deal right!? My local Loft finally received their plus size collection and they gave me a chance to host an event to show my friends and readers.

In a previous blog post, I mentioned my love for wrap dresses. They're essential for my wardrobe and I think every woman should have at least one in their closet. It could be a short, midi or maxi wrap dress. There are so many options to choose from. LOFT   has a thing for wrap dresses and I found one that I really loved. I admit when I saw this dress I knew I would love it. This dress was perfect to wear to my event on Friday. I'm hoping to host more events with my new found friends at Loft on King Street.



Loft Try-On Pieces

Last week Friday I got a chance to get a sneak peek of LOFT's latest Fall Collection at my local location. If you didn't know Loft released their plus size collection back in February nationwide. Sadly not all stores picked up the selection at the same time. But starting tomorrow Loft on King Street will be carrying the plus size.  I'm super excited because that will be another place to shop for clothes being that we don't have many options locally.

On Friday I'll be hosting my first in-store event and I'm beyond excited. Hopefully, I'll be able to see some of you there.

But today on the blog I wanted to share with you some of the pieces that you'll be able to pick up if you attend the event.  You can also check out some of the pieces that I tried on. Head over to my IGTV Channel for more details.

Until Next Time,



SCOUT Bags| Perfect for Any Ocassion

I've fallen in love with SCOUT Bags after attending their Spring Event back in 2017. Scout Bags offer bags from totes bags, lunch bags, weekenders, coolers,pool bags, wine bags and more.  I love to carry my bags to the beach, on trips and even for my photoshoots for my blog.  With so many designs and bag options to choose from you can have SCOUT Bags for any occasion


Are you planning a wedding or are you in charge of the Bachelorette Fetistives? I have a few options that would be perfect to gift to the bride, yourself or anyone who will be attending the wedding. Each one of these bags can play a special part during the wedding weekend and beyond.

Spirit  Liftah
This would be perfect to lift some spirits and raise a couple of glasses for the wedding party. Also a  gift to the bride, bridesmaids or even to carry the wine to the beach on your honeymoon. I love the design on this Spirit Liftah and shop here to find your favorite design.

Crown Jewels

This the perfect name for this bag because it can be used for your jewelry for the wedding or even your makeup.  It's the perfect size to put in your weekender tote or even your purse.

Weekender Bag

Last but not least let's talk about this weekender bag that I love so much. This bag would be perfect for the bride who will pack her bags and head to her honeymoon right after the wedding.  NO honeymoon? Then pack your bags for the perfect weekend getaway as newlyweds.  Don't forget your crown jewels bag and spring liftah.

Thank you so much to SCOUT Bags for gifting me these amazing pieces that I can add to my collection. Maybe a wedding will be in my future and I'll be able to put these items to good use. But believe me I won't be waiting until then to use my bags. I already have my crown jewel bag in my work tote since school started.

Until Next Time,



Building My Work Wardrobe : Basics

Hey, ya'll well I'm headed back to work in a few days! That means Summer Vacation will officially be over (Alexa play Mariah Carey You Will Always Be My Baby)! Yes, I'm a little sad but I'm looking forward to a brand new school year and what's to come. With that being said let's talk fashion and what I'll be wearing to work.

Over the school year, some of my items go through wear and tear. Some items I can no longer fit or just need to be found in my closet.  Over the past two weeks, I've been slowly but surely re-building my wardrobe for work. I'm not talking about purchasing a whole new wardrobe but slowly building a foundation so I can add pieces throughout the school year each season. So today I'm sharing tips on how I re-build my wardrobe for a new school year.

1. Take An Inventory
This time I did things a little different, I knew exactly what I needed when I shopped for a few things. But after picking up a few things I was able to clean out my closet and throw away things I didn't need. By that time I was able to check and see what I already have and I still need to complete the basics of my wardrobe.

2. Create A Checklist

Now that I've taken and Inventory of what I have  I'm able to create a checklist of what I still need. I would hate to go shopping and purchase items that I already have in my closet.

3. Purchase Basics
When I say basics I mean items that I can pair with different items throughout the school.  No matter the season I want to be able to create different looks with each item for example.

4. Where Do I Shop?

When I'm shopping  I tend to find plenty of good deals. I head straight to the clearance rack and from there I find so many pieces. then I will find my way to the full priced rack.  Here are a few of my favorite places to shop for my clothes.

  • TjMaxx
  • Marshalls
  • Target
  • Wal-Mart
  • Belk
  • Lane Bryant
