Twist and Shout with SheIn

Twist and shout! Don’t you just love a dress you feel like you can move and sway in? There’s something about a good dress that makes you feel your girlyest.

This slight high low dress from SheIn.com makes me feel like a pretty little dancing doll. I stumbled across SheIn when I saw another blogger post about the website. Always looking for new places to shop, I knew I HAD to place an order when I saw the incredible prices. My first purchase was this dress and white flowy cold shoulder blouse. My second purchase was a bubble gum pink one piece bathing suit. Although the items are low, low priced – we’re talking the most expensive piece on the site is about $29 low, I was a little weary of the quality. But I was pleasantly surprised to know everything fits perfectly and is of high quality!


The only downside to SheIn is the time it takes for items to arrive, considering it took about 3-4 weeks to get both packages. I fully recommend the website, but suggest ordering a month in advance if you know you’re going to need some key pieces for a trip or event. Also, items fit true to size!

Now dance away to SheIn.com and see what you can find.

Dad Hats are all the Rage

Dad hats. A fashion trend and a marketing tool for brands and independent retailers are topping the heads of everyone! Made popular decades ago by dads who wore baseball caps to support their favorite sports team, paired with ill-fitting jeans and a belt (you know exactly what I’m talking about!) these hats are popping up everywhere with catchy slogans, graphics, and branding.

My explication for the dad hat comes from a conversation with a friend. “That’s a nice Detroit vs Everybody hat,” he said. ” Oh, my dad hat? Thanks,” I said! His reply? “What’s a dad hat?” He proceeded to Google search “Dad Hats” and realized in fact, dad hats are a thing!

I own a few dad hats, but this Detroit vs Everybody dad hat has to be my favorite. Though tan, it actually compliments a lot, it’s adjustable and comfortable and totally in style. Whether you’re having a bad hair day, or just want to channel your inner dad, throw on a dad hat and hit the road!

My look is simplistic, allowing the Detroit vs Everybody hat to be the main focus. I added a chocker and red Chucks for a mild pop.

Have fun in your dad hats, kids!

Chunky Heels are the Best Heels

Today I saw a Facebook post that read, “10 Sundays until Autumn.” This automatically sent me into panic mode, making me realize there’s only a small window left to wear warm weather fashions like peep toes and sandals!

Fall is great for fashion, but I’m just not ready to put my little tootsies away. Bring on the bright colors, and chunky sandals. Speaking of chunky, if you haven’t nabbed a pair of chunky heels, do yourself a favor and get you some.

Chunky heels are far more comfortable than regular heels, they’re perfect for a day to night look, and can do wonders for your legs.

My two favorite pair of chunky sandal heels are actually from Forever 21. Both impulse purchases that have been some of the best buys this season.

This black pair are great for a day at work and can put the icing on the cake for a weekend brunch look.

This tan pair work best for a night out on the town, and the lace up look gives a sexy vibe.

The best part though? Both pair can be comfortably worn for hours and hours with no aches and pains.

Do you love chunky heels?

Prelude to Summer Outfit Inspo

We’re almost there. Just one month and…que summer! Summer calls for sunshine, tan lines, and bright colors. Oh, and white. Like Selena Gomez sings, “Tan skin looks damn good in white.” She’s not lying. 😉


Before summer officially hits, now is the perfect time to prep your wardrobe for scorching days and sassy nights. Pre-summer wardrobes can consist of monochrome ensembles and pops of color. It’s like giving just a little tease before you go all out in hot pants and lace up sandals.

For a fun girl’s night out, me and my girl Tina went with subtle hints of summer just so ya know it’s coming! It’s also the perfect time to splurge on pieces that will carry you throughout summer. You may also be able to catch a few pre-season sales.

Find ways to hint at the upcoming season before the weather officially changes. Cold shoulder tops and off the shoulder tops are the perfect prelude to summer. Pair the right shoes and accessories, and you have a great pre-summer look.

How Do You Define Your Style?

Do you have a specific style that defines you, or do you switch it up a little based on season or event? I find in my group of friends, while we all dress a little different, our individual styles are pretty defined. We’ll be out shopping, find an article of clothing and go “Hey, this is so you!”

A few weeks ago, me and a few of my lady friends decided to take a mini tour of Detroit after a fun Birthday brunch (mimosas anyone?!) to show off our defined weekend/event styles. Check out some outfit inspiration from me and my fab friends!

Krystina – Defined Style: Southern Chic
Tina is super into cold shoulder tops, booties, and simple accessories to channel the dainty, easy feel of the south. Her favorite store? Francesca’s and a Henri Bendel bag will usually complete her daily style. Shop her style.

Reese – Defined Style: Urban Goddess
As the birthday girl, Reese went for a fabulous goddess vibe in all white showing off her bod in the most classy way. On the daily, you may find Reese in super cute, form-fitting dresses and tops to hug her fit curves just right. Shop her style.

Taryn – Defined Style: Urban Mod
Taryn loves to be flirty with a little edge. Combat boots paired with a 60s-inspired dress perfectly captures her mod look with a twist. If she’s not showing off a mod look, you can find Taryn rocking a bohemian style, and a flower crown if it’s really special occasion! Shop her style.

Jessica – Defined Style: Cali Chic
Lately I’ve channeled my inner Kardashian with chokers and high ponys. I love a good west coast inspired look with some good denim, graphics, and a classic black piece. I’m so excited for warmer weather to come around so I can wear my legs bare. Dresses and rompers are my jam. Shop my style.

What’s your go-to style?

Thanks to my ladies for such a fun, fashionable, and fabulous day! ❤️👠

Dress For Less, and Still Impress

Every woman loves to look and feel her best. Fashion plays a hugely important role to maximizing those positive feelings. And this is just one of the many reasons that clothes shopping is one of our greatest hobbies. But if there’s only one thing that puts a smile on our face more than finding the perfect style, it’s finding the perfect style without breaking the bank.

 If you’re not careful, that passion for fashion can end up burning a very big hole in your pocket. Thankfully, these five tips for the modern woman will help you overcome those issues to promote greater success than ever before. What are you waiting for? Let’s get started.

 Don’t feel pressured into buying. This is especially true when looking at outfits for special occasions. Prom dresses are a perfect example of an item that you’ll only wear once, and there are plenty of others to consider too. You’ll probably end up selling the purchased outfit after a year or two of collecting dust anyway. Renting is cheaper and efficient in many scenarios. While it might not always be the best solution, appreciating this option is key.

 Embrace cheaper garments too. It’s always nice to buy the designer brand, particularly when you get it on a cheap deal. However, there is more to life than clothes. Rocking simple options like crop tops can allow you to master daily styles on a minimal budget. That’ll leave you more money for the standout styles while offering added comfort in day-to-day life. Moreover, it’ll feel far less annoying if you ruin an outfit.

 Always search for the best deals. Searching for the best options on the market is important in many fields, but this is especially true when it comes to fashion. The internet has changed everything, and you can learn how to save money at Old Navy for premium items at modest costs. If it allows you the opportunity to gain the joys of owning quality clothes without the guilt of spending big, you’d be a fool to miss out. On a similar note, if you are placing an order with a retailer, placing a bulk order with a friend may generate an added discount.

Opt for versatile options. Of course, one of the best ways to fill your wardrobe for less is to choose items that work with various outfits. Accessories should be top of your agenda, and these bags can be used to complement various outfits for multiple occasions. Couple this with a keen eye for practical footwear choices. You should find that you can look your best time and time again without the need for investing in dozens of options.

 Create your own style. Upcycling has become increasingly popular in recent times, especially with regards to fashion. This can be a great way to breathe new life into your wardrobe at a fraction of the costs. Moreover, it’s the ideal option for anyone looking to embrace their creativity and maintain their unique vibe. Use these simple guides for inspiration, and you will not go far wrong. It has to be better than throwing those items in the trash.
