Monochrome Love: Stripes & A Little Bit of Red

Hi loves, this outfit consisted of this black and white striped top from Forever 21 (bought it awhile back and never wore it) and these chiffon wide leg pants that were less than $1 from the thrift store. (Yes....I said $1!) I had gone to this gourmet burger place and it was delish. I wanted to wear something stylish, yet comfy since I was going to eat a lot lol. The belt is probably one of my favorites since it had gold detailing with 2 tassels. Love! And that was a $1! The red pop of color is a White House Black Market handbag that was just shy of $4! The shades have the thick chain on the side and my sandals are from Tory Burch. I love mixing high and low for a very versatile look!

Thrift Finds: Goodwill's 50% Off Haul!!!

Happy Saturday!! I know it's been awhile since I've been posting but I at least wanted to give you guys some thrift haul goodness. Especially, since it was Goodwill's 50% Off Day in Southwest Florida. I'm like a kid in a candy store, since most of their items are already inexpensive and then half off of that?! (*does dougie*). I will try and keep this post short since it will be picture heavy! The funny thing is I didn't even take pictures of everything, just highlights! O_o  Some of the brands featured are from American Eagle, Bebe, Levi, Vince Camuto, Macy's, Ann Taylor and French Connection. Can you say 'Oh Happy Day'?! If you haven't started thrifted or want to, I will be doing an advice/tips/tricks post in the very near future to help! Enjoy!!!!

Fashion For Charity: My Outfit Collaboration featuring Wear The Fund!


Fashion + Charity = This awesome Wear The Fund “Giving Is Beautiful” Tank Top I’m wearing! I first heard about this company through one of my best friends who happened to be working with them. After she initially filled me in on what their vision, I went to the website www.WearTheFund.com and did some research. Their Mission, Vision and Why had me hooked and I was definitely intrigued on how I could get involved, too. When we think of charity it’s helping out at a soup kitchen, walking to raise awareness or donating money. I don’t know about you but as a fashion/style blogger hearing that you can help someone in need AND wear a dope t-shirt at the same time makes it that much sweeter. Sometimes we get this notion in our heads that we have to go all out or spend thousands of dollars to help, when in reality it could be as simple as giving a meal to someone on the street or literally purchasing a tee from Wear The Fund and 20% goes to one of their charity partners! It could be that easy! I do believe the world would be even more beautiful if we spread more love, kindness and respect! A BIG thank you to Jada and the Wear The Fund team, super excited to have had this collaboration happen!!!!

I wanted to keep the outfit simple so the WTF top was the center of attention but add in some dope pieces to spice it up. My Outfit Of The Day details are below!

July 4th Weekend Outfit (Casual Part 3) - Featuring Red Timberlands Boots!

The 4th of July may be over for some but I wanted to keep the theme going. I wanted to debut my red Timberland boots I received as a birthday gift from my boo bear. To keep most of the attention on the shoes, I opted for simpler outfit. I paired it with a navy blue slouchy tee, jean shirts and a studded red bracelet for another pop of color. There you have it, something easy, comfortable and stylish! I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their holiday weekend!! Now it's time for more pie ;)

July 4th Weekend Outfit - Red White and Blue, Part. 2 (Casual)

Happy Independence Day, loves!!! To whoever reads this: I hope you are having a great holiday weekend while relaxing, enjoying family and friends, and food (of course). Who else is full from eating wayyyy too much?! I know I can't be the only one. Your girl was also in the kitchen and the boo was on the grill. Perfect combo if you ask me. Anywho, this is one of the casual options I had for this weekend! Just took some quick pics in between BBQs; and yes, that's plural. (the first of my two options for the casual July 4th look). Enjoy!!! 
Here are the deets: 
Red and white striped tank top - Walmart ($3. That's like a thrift find! I then made it into a crop top).
Love Screw Bracelet
Chanel 'CC' Mini Stud Earrings
DIY High Waisted Boyfriend Jeans - Bleached and Destroyed ($2 Thrift Find! And I might do a pictorial on these in the future).
Plain white sneakers like Keds.
