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?

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! ❤️👠

Superhero Chic

When you think of a cape, do you think of Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman? Capes are for superheros, so why not be a hero of fashion? It’s fashion cape season!

Cape - Happy

I found this very chic and British-inspired cape from Merchant 31, an affordable online boutique discovered via Instagram. Merchant 31 is dedicated to offering the latest fashion and accessories to women worldwide at affordable prices. Staying true to their roots, Merchant 31 has taken its small-town, family-owned business philosophy online, treating each customer like family and offering a one-of-a kind selection of women’s clothing and accessories.

Capes give you the warmth and coverage of a coat, but allow for a little fashion freedom.  For this particular look, I decided to pair my Merchant 31 cape with jeans and booties, but added a statement necklace and a hat for a little drama.

Leopard Print Pumas

I originally purchased these fabulous Pumas because I figured once they arrived, I would lace them up and immediately feel the need to go running. Unfortunately things didn’t go as planned. But that’s OK!
Leopard Print Pumas

These leopard print Pumas may be the most comfortable shoes I own. However, I have come to terms with the fact that the act of working out gives me anxiety and I just straight up don’t want to do it. So, until that day comes when I am inspired to work out on a regular basis (I do have my moments when I get on a workout kick a few weeks at a time) these will be my fun shoes.

The great thing about athletic shoes is that they can double as causal shoes. You know those outfits you wear when you just want to be completely comfortable, or when you want something easy but still want to be cute? This style of shoe is perfect for those types of outfits.

Other than being cute and casual, these shoes are perfect for a good workout as a result of their comfort level and support. One day I’ll slip into these Pumas and go for a run!
