MY LATEST STUDIO PHOTOSHOOT

MY LATEST STUDIO PHOTOSHOOT

It’s been a while since I did a lifestyle photoshoot, and even longer since I’ve been inside a studio to sit in front of a camera to be the model!

But when a good photographer friend of mine asked me to pose for a project he was working on (and hopefully one that you’ll see in a museum some day), I had to oblige. After capturing the shots he needed, we had extra studio time to shoot some additional images. I’ve decided to share them on the blog, so here goes…

MONOCHROMATIC WHITE

MONOCHROMATIC WHITE

Late sunsets, rooftop parties, and crisp whites are just a few of my favorite things about Summer. This weekend, I got to experience “the trifecta” as the hubby and I hung out at the Wharf in DC for a much needed date night. I went for a clean monochromatic white look, with accessories that added a smidgen of color.

Check out that view! I’ve rounded up my favorite whites for the season, and I’m sharing them with you. Some are recent purchases that you’ll see me rocking if you follow me on Instagram, and others are still on my wishlist! Go ahead and get your Hot Girl Summer ON!

SUMMER PREP – DO THESE THREE THINGS NOW

SUMMER PREP – DO THESE THREE THINGS NOW

It’s the unofficial start of the Summer. I’m so excited about all the fun the warmer weather brings, but to be honest, I’m also a little nervous. Guess who’s been slacking on those #LevelUp 2019 goals? Me! Like, no motivation to do a thing, except to STOP, BREATHE, and just ENJOY the present.

It’s been therapeutic these last few months just slowing down,and taking the time to enjoy family life with a lot less stress! Now, with Summer fast approaching (I’ve still got a few weeks though till it’s really on), there are three things I plan on doing to help me make the most of the sunny season. Read on to find out…


1. SWITCHING UP MY SKINCARE PRODUCTS
Skin has different needs in cold, dry Winter months than when it’s warm out, and you’re frequently exposed to sweat, humidity, and irritants that can clog the pores. My skin is already telling me it’s time. I’ve lined up some new products I’ll be trying over the next few weeks that hopefully will come with positive reviews!

SHOP THE LOOK


Halter Neck Jumpsuit, Snake Mules, Clear Mini Grab Bag, Pandora Entwined Ring, Mirrored Sunglasses, Strapless Jumpsuit, Zara Transparent Handbag, Circle Drop Earrings

2. GETTING MY SUMMER BODY TIGHT!
Thankfully my inconsistency this year hasn’t set me back too far. I think prepping for an early Spring vacation may have helped to keep me on track! If you missed my posts on my trip to Colombia, catch them here and here. Consistency is key going forward, so I’ll be working hard on keeping those gym dates each week, no matter what!

3. PLAN A SUMMER ITINERARY
Having fun this Summer will NOT break the bank! I won’t allow that to happen because ending the year financially stronger than it started is still THE goal. With a well thought out itinerary, I plan on taking advantage of all the DMV has to offer (DC, Maryland, and Virginia, if you’re not local) . There are usually some pretty cool festivals, outdoor events, and concerts (for free or minimal cost) every Summer. And many are kid friendly too. You just need to find them!

HOW TO WEAR NEON WITHOUT LOOKING LIKE A HIGHLIGHTER

HOW TO WEAR NEON WITHOUT LOOKING LIKE A HIGHLIGHTER



Fashion month is officially behind us, and while it may not feel like it, now’s the time to start prepping for Spring. A wardrobe refresh should be high on your list of things to do so you’ll start the new season fresh and right on trend. Brilliant hues are in for Spring, so you’ll see lots of neon highlighting the streets, literally, as the weather warms.

If you think neon’s too intimidating to pull off it’s not as tough as you think. Start slow with accessories, or one neon piece per outfit. Here’s a roundup of the most impressive eye catching looks from the Fashion Week streetstyle stars to show how effortlessly it can be done.

EVERY SPRING DRESS YOU NEED TO WEAR NOW

EVERY SPRING DRESS YOU NEED TO WEAR NOW



Every couple of weeks or so we seem to be getting little glimpses of Spring. And I’m so here for it! I’m ready to ditch my heavy Winter wear for breezy, Spring dresses in the prettiest prints and blooms. I’ve been checking out my trusty online shopping spots for dresses that’ll give my wardrobe a Spring refresh for the upcoming season, and I’m sharing my faves for you to shop. Just in time to flex that tax refund muscle!

DOTTED DRESSES
The polka dot is my favorite of the spotted prints, and they are making another comeback this season. But no discrimination allowed, all dots are created equal!


Flowy V-Neck, Red Polka Dot Mini, Spotted Midi, Belted Midi, Pink Polka Printed, Ruched Polka Dot Maxi

SPRING NEUTRALS
Earth tones, from cream to khaki, are essential for lighting up your look for Spring. This time, why not consider updated neutrals in animal print?


Belted Utility Dress, Pleated Snake Skin Print, Pointelle Dress, Zebra Printed Midi, Ruched Snake Print, Linen Blend Dress, Cowl Slipdress


SHOP MY LOOK


Ruched Mini Dress, Circle Drop Earrings, Biker Jacket, Mini Faux Fur Shopper Tote, Over The Knee Suede Boots

I found this pretty floral printed number last month while shopping for an outfit for a blogger event. There’s so much to love about it! The pastel blue and ruching detail throughout just screamed “hello Spring” to me.


TIERED DRESSES
Flowy ruffles and voluminous tiers allow you to be as fancy (or playful) as you wanna be.


One Shoulder Tiered Midi, Tiered Trapeze Mini, Spot Tiered Dress, Floral Print Dress, Asymmetrical Ruffle Midi

MELLOW YELLOW TO NEON BRIGHT
There really isn’t anything mellow about this hue that captured my attention (and heart) last Summer. My favorite silhouettes are flowy and mid to floor length. Neon is in this Spring/Summer too. You’ll be seeing it everywhere, I promise!


Wrap Front Snake Print, Plunge Satin Midi, Scarf Neck Maxi, Cami Sweater Maxi, Bardot Wrap Midi, Satin Slip Dress

PRETTY PRINTS
My fave prints this season are skewing animal, but I love a good petal print for Spring. Check these out!


Ruched Satin Midi, Collared Leopard Midi, Calf Length Leopard, Burgundy Floral, Neon Printed Slip Dress, Giraffe Print Shirtdress

I’m sure these pretty dresses have got you all excited for the sunny season! Temps are still a little chilly on my side of the country, so layering is key to stay warm and cute until Summer. Try these layering tips:

1. Add a turtleneck or long sleeve bodysuit underneath your dress for added warmth.
2. Tights keep your legs warm while wearing dresses in thinner fabrics. Try ditching over-the-knee boots for mules or chunky heeled sandals.
3. Double duty your biker shorts to act as thermals under midi or knee length dresses.
4. Blazers are appropriate for Spring too. Try one in a pastel hue, or go for bold in neon.

TOP TEN 2018

TOP TEN 2018



2018’s almost a wrap! Whatever your plans/goals/resolutions were, I hope you were able to crush them in fearless style! This was a big year for me. I started this blog, my family settled into our new home, I saw my twin babies (now four year old boys, ahhh!) reach many milestones, AND I still managed to grow my online accessories shop! Of course, there were challenges; many high highs, and low lows. Wanna know the best part? It’s my personal growth from trusting my gut, taking a leap, and committing to doing the thing I’m passionate about, especially in those moments that didn’t feel quite so ‘sexy’.



I already have big plans for 2019. “Level Up” is the theme I’ve chosen for the year. I’m putting it out in the universe to force myself to be accountable. I think I’ll check this post in six months to gauge my progress!

I’ve been taking a look back at some of the most memorable moments in 2018 (the ones that gave me goosebumps), and I’m sharing my top ten:

1. Boo’d Up by Ella Mai. It’s arguably the official song of 2018, and the one that got the most play in my iTunes library.

2. The Royal Wedding of Meghan and Prince Harry was a fairytale come true! Their union bucked centuries old traditions, and The Duchess became the first woman of color in the British royal family. I wrote all about it here.

3. A Savage runway. Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty runway show celebrated all women like none I have ever seen. Her muse, Slick Woods, literally left the runway to give birth!

4. Speaking of fashion, the industry made strides this year to be more inclusive/diverse (Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton, Dapper Dan x Gucci, Edward Enninful/British Vogue) , but there’s still more work to be done.

5. Just Do It! Nike showed us what modern corporate social activism looks like by doing an ad campaign starring Colin Kaepernick. It paid off!

6. The Me Too Movement became a force to be reckoned with. Women started speaking up against sexual assault and harassment, and powerful men are paying for their misconduct.

7. Christine Blasey Ford.

8. We rocked the vote! The 2018 midterm election was a historical one with record voter turnout. 49% of eligible voters (113 million) showed up at the polls to let our voices be heard.

9. The Black Panther was more than just the best selling movie of 2018, it was a movement! And it’s the only film I’ve gone to see twice at the theater!

10. Hollywood creative geniuses like Ava Duvernay, Ryan Coogler, Jordan Peele, and Issa Rae continued to show the world what we already knew…our stories are marketable, and black and brown acting leads can (and do) sell out box offices.

May this holiday season fill your home with joy, your heart with love, and your life with laughter. Cheers!
