Feeling Sexy in Chunky Knits! - Outfit Inspiration

"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home." ~ Twyla Tharp
Hey sweetie pies it is HUMP DAAYY! I hope this Wednesday is treating you well. For today's post I am back with my fave black pencil skirt (similar here and here). For this look, I opted for this open knit cable sweater for a more revealing look. I would wear something like this while going out in the daytime or on the weekend with my girlfriends. Pair with a beautiful bralette to peep through the sweater and you get that juxtaposition if you opt for a lace bralette. 

This particular sweater is slightly cropped so it stops right above the waistline. Since my skirt is high waist, it went together perfectly! I don't like showing a lot of skin at one time so the sliver of my waist with the additional peep through was just enough! I feel super sexy in this look without exposing much and let me just tell you that I love that!
I definitely wanted to keep this look as casual and make something different f…

My Top Tips for Boosting your Creativity!

"It is important to express oneself...provided the feelings are real and are taken from your own experience." ~ Berthe Morisot
Happy Monday sweetie pies! For all of my creatives out there, whether you're a writer, painter, singer, musician, dancer etc. all at one time or another struggled with staying creative. While some believe one never runs out of creativity, others may believe that creativity has it's moments. That creativity has an ebb and flow to it. I rather believe the latter. I definitely get writer's block and dancer's block alike. There are times when I struggle with something creatively speaking and it drives me crazy! I think often times we creatives are perfectionists who see the world in a perfect way and like to make that our reality by creating it ourselves. Or perhaps we feel that the world ignores the things that are wrong and chooses to exploit those things, bringing those things center stage. (Literally and figuratively)  Whether you fa…

2 Day to Night Looks for the Modern Woman on the Go! | Collab

"The principles of true art is not to portray, but to evoke." ~ Jerzy Kosinski
This post is in collaboration with Thinking Boutique. While some of the products were gifted to me all opinions are my own. 
Hey hey sweetie pies! I am excited to bring you today's post! I had the luxury of shopping at Thinking Boutique and it was so much fun! Not only do they awesome clothing but they also offer other services and classes but more on that later. :) From seeing all of the beautiful clothes to the unique Houston based jewelry lines (that is often handmade) there is something to fit your style needs. The ladies were so resourceful and helpful in helping me select clothing items. It was hard to narrow it down but I was able to take home 3 pieces that I loved. I wanted to share 2 day and night looks for the Modern Woman on the Go. Check it out below!

This first look is perfect for the girl boss who means business and is all about getting the job done. The first piece I styled is t…

Feeling Feminine with Chunky Knits! - Outfit Inspiration

"Every artist was first an amateur." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hey sweetie pies happy Monday! For today's post I wanted to bring out the knit wear. I am talking chunky sweaters and chunky scarfs. When it comes to chunky knits, they are usually thought to be warm and comfortable. While this statement is true, I wanted to find a way to make a chunky knit sweater fit my style. I definitely like pairing unexpected pieces together often with a feminine or edgy touch. 

I decided to pair this knit sweater that I got last season from Target (similar options listed below) with my tried and true pencil skirt. I opted for an oversized fit for the sweater picking it up in an XL. This kind of skirt is perfect because of its fit which creates contrast for the loose oversized sweater. So that my waist line wouldn't get lost in the look, I decided to do a half tuck in the front. This allows the peplum, which adds feminine flair, to show and draws attention to my waist. If you ever have…

My Faves for September!

"Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, 'What's in it for me?'" ~ Brian Tracy
Hey there sweetie pies. We are already in October! September kind of just flew by huh? Well you know with a new month comes new monthly favorites. With my busy schedule I haven't had much time this month to try out new products or get into many products for that matter. If you haven't checked out my life update post yet, check it out to read all about what I have been up to. Even though I don't have many faves this month, these products I swear by!

Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation
This has definitely become one of my favorite drugstore foundations. It is lightweight while providing medium to full coverage. I use the shade 340 or cappuccino. It is available pretty much anywhere but I linked it here for your convenience.

So Fabulously...Random? - Life Update and Blog Announcement

"The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible." ~ Arthur C. Clarke
Hey hey sweetie pies! Did you check out part 1 of my Fall Style Lookbook? If not, make sure to go give it a look. Part 2 will definitely be coming soon! For today's look I wanted to provide some outfit inspiration with a tribute to mod style. One thing about me and my style, I wear exactly what I want. Please note that the white button down is actually a shirt that I got from my boyfriend that I often wear as a dress. I have styled this oversized top in a number of ways such as here and here. When I tell you guys where I got this black and white checkered dress from you won't believe me.
I got it from Wal-Mart for $3!!! It is actually a tunic that I got in a larger size to fit like a dress! Pretty groovy huh? (That's a reference from one of my favorite 90s movies, can you guess what it is? Leave me a comment below of just the movie title)
I decide…
