This has to be my all time favorite uniform when I am tan.  I know you think I am crazy for being such a curvy girl and loving white so much.  Well I do, my entire apartment is white, I have a white couch for crying out loud.  If that doesn't make me scared, nothing will.  I have always loved white.  Its my favorite color in the coloring box!!
This top though, it does the trick.  I have it in two colors.  You wear it and you feel confident.  It has a little shear panel at the bottom that makes you feel sexy but it is long enough to cover you bum.  Bottom line is I love this top and so will you, pun intended.
Also remember you can wear all white even without a tan.  White pretty much compliments everyone its clean and fresh and can always be bleached.
Also don't forget there is only 4 days left of the big sale!! I threw in a couple of my favorite things for you to check out below!! You really can't beat getting shop fall styles on sale! So shop shop shop because the heat will be gone hopefully soon enough!

Current // ML xx BB + #NSALE














 A couple weeks ago I followed this airstream all the way to Tennessee.  I went to a little party and drink pink lemonade with flamingo straws in them.  Then I went shopping and bought the tons of bangles.  Can I ask you a question?  Do you bangle?  
If the answer is yes than awesome.  If the answer is no, than you need to be!  
Two of my favorite brands have done an amazing collaboration.  Moon & Lola and Bourbon & Boweties have teamed up to bring girls around the world the cutest bracelet collection I ever did see, you can shop it here.  I might have gone a little crazy on that airstream.  
I have posted some pictures of this amazing tour bus they haves decked out with everything a southern or girly girl would want to put her closet in, travel in, shop in, or just hang out in.  These two companies really out did them selves by reinventing themselves over and over again to keep their product fresh and new.  I can't wait to see what they come up with next.  But until then I have been glamping in style this summer with all my beautiful bangles.  Thanks for inspiring women to keep reaching for the stars. 
On a side note, there is only 5 days left to shop the #nsale.  So I have added some of my favorite things to this post for you to shop!! Who doesn't want to shop a sale before a season so you can wear it when it gets to be fall weather?

Outfit Post // Block








Shirt Lilla P c/o // Shorts DL1961 // Purse Kate Spade // Shoes Target // Necklaces here and here // Bracelets here and here // Ring Gorjana c/o Indigeaux Denim Bar // Sunglasses old 

This post is about self discovery! It is about coming to the understanding that we are all differently and wonderfully made.  I was so excited to see that People Style Watch instagram had posted one of my pictures!  It was the perfect ending to a not so good Friday.  When I was that picture with all the likes and kind words written under it, touched my heart and I was filled with happiness and sadness.  
The sadness was that I have always struggled with body image.  I keep most of it inside, but it was always there.  I have always been a thick, curvy, healthy girl.  From the time I was in high school I was self conscience about my body from the waist down.  I am a pear shape and my hips, butt, and legs are very curvy!  It was something I hated about myself.  I wanted to be thin so badly, I would do things not healthy for my body and never really get the results I wanted.  Why? Because that is not the way I am supposed to look.  I am a full figured, pear shape, curvy woman.  My happiness came when I saw the #loveyourshape campaign. I knew I wanted to flag my pictures to show how I love my shape.  I am proud of my curves and know they make up this wonderful, healthy, and beautiful body that God gave me.  
Through this process of blogging and becoming a fashion/lifestyle blogger I have decided not to physically edit any of my pictures.  What you see is what you get with me.  I have said it many times before, I want to inspire women to get dressed with confidence each morning.  Love their bodies the way they should are at any stage of life you may be in.  We are all made differently and thats a good thing.  How boring would it be if we all looked the same.  Don't let social media, the fashion industry, clothes, or yourself get you down.  Clothes are not going to fit everyone perfectly, you have to make them work for you! I wish I would have known that long ago.  
To all the fashionistas and bloggers out there, it takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there for all to see.  Getting dressed for success and inspiring women to do the same.  So thank you for inspiring me to take a risk and put myself out there.  I am so proud to be part of this amazing community where there are no limits to what you can do and who you can be!

Outfit Post // Graffiti









Earrings Kendra Scott c/o // Ring Gorjana c/o  // Necklaces Gorjana here and here c/o // Bracelet Gorjana c/o // Turquoise Bracelet Kendra Scott c/o // Sunglasses old 

My favorite part about getting dressed is accessorizing my look.  Jewelry always fits and always makes me feel good.  It pulls an outfit together and makes you stand out.  I once heard a quote staying " before you leave take off one piece of jewelry".  Well before I leave I add another piece to my look.  My jewelry style has becoming all about layering and building upon an everyday piece.  I wear that bracelet stack almost everyday and just add to it! 
Have fun with your jewelry, you really can't go wrong, there are no rules, mix metals, colors, styles, anything goes these days.

Product // Frizz Control










Hairspray Living Proof c/o // Travel Set Living Proof c/o  // Hair Ties Emi-Jay c/o

Me doing a hair post, this is going to be good.  Well where do I start. . .  I am not the best at hair by any means nor am I a product expert, needed to get that out first.  What I do know is I am in the most humid of areas, the south east, and I am always outside during the hottest times of the day.  So when Living Proof contacted me to try their new no frizz humidity shield products, excited is an understatement.  
So let me begin with the travel kit which is perfect for me since I am either in a plane or a car traveling to some amazing small town in the south!  So I need my products to be small and easily totable!  Now to the good stuff does it work?  YES.  My hair feels clean and healthy in any type of weather or water situation.  The best part is the spray! It keeps my hair looking fresh and frizz free all day long! It has become my favorite part about getting ready in the morning.  I feel like I have had a blowout every day.  So if that doesn't convince you enough just buy the travel set and try it out.  I no longer use cheap, filler hair products that continue to damage and not protect my hair from all types of pollution.  Only the best for these precious locks!
