I would say that the amount of blue and white which can currently be found in my closet is excessive, but that would be a lie because, trust me when I tell you that you can never have enough of this color combo this Spring/Summer! This color combination screams Summer, and the Grecian hues make me want to book a flight to Greece like yesterday! Can you tell I'm in desperate need of a vacay?

Embroidery is all the rage this season. I just bought another off the shoulder denim, embroidered dress the other day that I can not wait to share with you guys. This French Connection bell-sleeved number is actually from last summer, but I have rounded up some of my favorite embroidered dresses for under $50 below! Also, can we please talk about how cute these peep-toe white espadrilles are? So cute,comfy and perfect for any Spring/Summer look!

There is nothing more easy than workwear that translates to be comfortable as well as chic. I live for basic minimalistic pieces which will surpass decades of trends, and are simple yet makes a huge statement. That is exactly how I feel about this TopShop t-shirt dress from Nordstrom Rack. It combines my love for simplicity with basic, soft Spring colors. I edged up my look a bit with these metallic Steve Madden mules, which I'm obsessed with! They are so 90's meets 2017. Mirrored sunnies are all the rage this Spring/Summer and are the perfect accessory to top off any look. What is your workwear style?

#Accessorize









Shoes: Steve Madden similar found here. Bag: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack. Skirt: Forever 21 found here. Chambray Top: Loft found here. Sunnies: Francesca's similar here

Happy Sunday! I cannot believe that the weekend is already coming to a close- don't they always go by so fast?! I had a pretty eventful weekend, and it started off just the way I like it...a trip to the mall for a little bit errr maybe a lot a bit of shopping! I've partnered with Concord Mills to bring you the cutest case of the blues! I mean, isn't everything about this fit to die for? Concord Mills has some of the best shopping right here in the Charlotte area- there are ton of different retailers to choose from and they all offer this year's Spring trends of Metallics, Florals, Stripes and Cobalt for affordable prices! Now through May 31st, Concord Mills will hold their first Accessorize Your Spring sale month long event where you can shop for this springs trends and save up to 70% off! If you guys have been following me for some time, then you know that I love a good deal. 

Chambray is such classic staple piece and is so worth the investment. It can be dressed up, dressed down or even paired with your favorite pair of denim to create a chic Canadian Tuxedo- which bee tee dubs, that's just fancy terms for denim on denim ;) I decided to pair my soft, chambray top with this stripped midi skirt from Forever 21. The material is lightweight, which will be perfect for the humid, North Carolina temps headed our way soon. I finished my look with a pop of metallic. These Steve Madden Rose Gold platforms give the whole outfit a little bit of edge, not to mention they're super comfortable and under $60. This Spring, metallics are the perfect neutral to give your outfit a pop of uniqueness. These shoes literally go with everything, so I'm warning you now that I'll be a repeat shoe offender for the months to come. Lastly, these nude rounded sunnies are the perfect touch of 70s flare.

If you're in or from the Charlotte area, make your way to Concord Mills before it's too late to save BIG on all of my favorite spring trends!

Happy Shopping :)

Natural










The natural scenery during spring and summer has to be one of my favorite things about the warmer months. That, and eating watermelon on the porch while reading a good book! Spring and Summer in North Carolina are the absolute best...the southerly breeze and clear blue skies during the day and the warm summer, star-filled nights are pure perfection. 

As the days warm up, I have the freedom to get back into my wash n go natural hair routine without risking getting a cold! This is my go-to hairstyle on the weekends when the humidity is unbearable, and when I don't want to spend hours straightening my hair just for it to poof back up. This past weekend was cloudy and rainy, and it was super quick to do my normal wash routine, add some of the products I love and just go. My favorite products are from the Shea Moisture line. I've  been natural for almost 3 years now and, have over my natural hair journey become more and more confident in my curls and have learned to feel beautiful in my natural skin. I'll be doing a blog post about the products I use in the future so stay tuned! 

This outfit is perfect for both work, church and play. Mustard yellow is one of my favorite natural hues- there is just nothing like it! And chambray is a basic staple that will be sure to go with any and every piece you own in your closet. I've been wearing these Marc Fischer lace up heels with all of my spring outfits and felt like my dollars were well spent adding them to my wardrobe. I promise you'll feel the same way! What are some of your favorite things about the spring/summer season?

Eyelet



Pants: H&M found here. Top: Marshalls. Shoes: Old- Steve Madden via Belk. Bag: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack.












One of the things I look forward to about each week is casual Friday. I love waking up on Friday knowing it's the weekend and knowing I don't have to give my outfit any extra thought because it's usually just dark denim and a cute top. But then there's Thursday, you know...Friday eve! By Wednesday, my fancy schmancy workwear is all tapped out, and all I want is to be comfortable but cute. These H&M printed slim fit pants are everything!! They are comfortable, cute and the pattern is unique and playful. Not to mention, the price I got them for is *emoji praise hands* - they were only $15. I mean, how could I not buy these in every color/pattern! The ones I'm wearing are sold out, but I've linked the same pant in different patterns up top. They are lightweight and definitely corporate friendly. I paired them with this gorgeous eyelet white top from...you guessed it! Marshalls. I love how crisp, and summer fresh it is and that I'll be able to pair it with a number of skirts and shorts during the upcoming summer season.

Chambray + Aztec



Chambray Shift Dress: Old Navy. Earrings: H&M. Shoes: Marc Fisher via Belk found here. Bag: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack. Watch:  Guess. Bangles: Old Navy.




Much like classic black and white style (if you missed Wednesday's post check it out here) I don't think chambray is anywhere close to leaving the runways this Spring or going out of style any time soon. Chambray, a lighter version of denim with the same type of look is a great piece to have whether it be a button down top, a romper, or a shift dress like the one I scooped up from Old Navy a couple of weeks ago. Not to mention that I got it for a major steal...try $9. Yep, pretty much makes my life when I'm willing to take on the jungle of clothes that blew up in the clearance section of Old Navy and find pieces like this . It's worth it ladies I'm telling you! It just takes a little bit of patience and the will to walk out of the store with a great deal! There is nothing quite like the feeling of knowing you saved tons of money on a piece you'll be sure to wear over and over again for the next couple of months to a year.

So MOD



Shift Dress: Marshalls. Shoes: Sam Edelman via Belk. Crossbody: Marshalls. Sunnies: Old Navy.

The weather has been absolutely glorious in Charlotte these past couple of days. I'm loving every bit of it. Quick, easy and chic are the three words I always keep in mind when shopping for my spring/summer work wardrobe. As much as I wish I was, I'm not a morning person at all so I like be able to think of cute outfits that require minimal effort :) Which is the reason I love the shift dress so much. Super comfortable and classy for work and play. During the summer, I'm always making plans to go out and enjoy the weather after work which is why I am very fond of outfits which make the transition for fun, summer evenings. This look is the perfect combo of mod and chic. What are some of your favorite staple pieces for spring/summer?

Emerald




Maxi Dress: Target. Blush Pink Motto Jacket: Thrift Find. Emerald Green Heels: Jessica Simpson 

I can always count on Jessica Simpson for the cutest, most stylish and colorful pair of heels anytime of the year! These Emeraldish green heels were a New Years Eve outfit purchase, and I've been rocking them ever since then. They are the perfect shade for spring, so I'm sure I'll be getting my wear out of them and you'll be seeing them a lot on the blog! lol Although some mornings have still been chilly, the weather is finally starting to consistently warm up. Maxi dresses are my go to for spring/summer outings with friends or perfect for a day in corporate America. Me and funky patterns are best friends. I love them. Of course, this cute little number is from Target! This dress is one of many pieces that I've snatched up from their Spring line. This blush pink motto jacket, which I also styled here is perfect for those chilly mornings, and completes the look with a little bit of a flirtatious edge. How do you guys feel about patterned maxi's?

Shine On





Dress: Marshalls. Simliar- Here. Necklace: The Loft. Shoes: Off Broadway Jessica Simpson Julez

Instead of sticking to spring pastels this Easter, I decided to go with something a little bit more bolder and brighter! I spotted this metallic number in Marshalls (surprise, surprise!) and had to give it a try. It fits like a glove, and the length is absolutely perfect. Picking out the perfect Easter dress is a tradition that I'll continue for myself and my children, when I have them, a long long time from now! lol I can't seem to keep my eyes off all things metallic and chrome, everywhere I turn I see a new piece that I want to add to my wardrobe. Like these bronze strappy sandals with turquoise accent from Aldo shoes and these pretty pink pumps from JustFab shoes. I just can't get enough! What do you guys think of the spring metallic trend? How would you rock metallic pieces?
