Boyfriend Jeans and Long Coats

So when you gain a little weight and don't really fit into your old jeans, it's all about the boyfriend jeans. They are baggy, typically destroyed, low-rise jeans which are comfy and look so effortless. They can be dressed up or down, and that's what I love about them. When I don't feel like wearing my skinny jeans, but still want something denim, then these are my go to. I paired them with a navy blue long coat, a simple loose white t-shirt and my favorite fringe heels of the moment. In this case, the shoes really make or break the outfit, it just wouldn't have the same effect with flats or sneakers. I decided to do a casual yet chic look and topped it off with the latest accessory trend, a choker.


Destroyed Denim Pencil Skirt

Now let me tell you something, Forever 21 has definitely been stepping up their game from when I use to work there during my college years. I mean they have always been good but now there are some really great finds! Like this distressed denim skirt I am wearing. It's a chic retro piece featuring ripped and threadbare destruction. I remember rockin' mini jean skirts in middle school and can't believe they are back in style. Looks like fashion is always going to repeat itself.


Lilac Summer Fashion Dress

For some reason, the lilac color to me just says mature and sophisticated, and I believe this dress is exactly that. I have teamed up with Banana Republic to showcase their petite collection. I am 5'5" and don't consider myself short but I am kind of slim and noticed their regular sizes run a little big. For example the size 2 was too tiny and the size 4 was not form fitting so when I tried on the 4P, it was perfect!

Let me start off by saying I feel so honored to be a part of such an amazing collaboration. Le Motto reached out to me to be one of the featured bloggers participating in the #ActuallySheCan campaign sponsored by Allergan and featuring the beautiful supermodel, Jourdan Dunn! The campaign is all about spreading motivation and positivity in a fashionable manner. With three different tanks featuring empowering quotes, we can now aim to empower others: "Less hesitation. More meditation."; "Less regret. More sweat." or "Less drama. More karma."


Summer Hair Trend: A Side Fishtail Braid

I have done a previous post showcasing a fun spring hairstyle of soft waves and short hair. Today I partner up again with Hair Cuttery to try out a fun hair trend for the summer season. Last time I focused on embracing short hair and this time around I show you a style for long hair featuring a side fishtail braid. To achieve this look I used clipin wavy hair extensions from my brand, Bella Kurls, to go from shoulder hair length to long locks in a matter of minutes!
