New Fashion, New Brand

newfashionnewbrand8 newfashionnewbrand6 So Guys, I am so excited to tell you about a new fashion label that is making its way into the U.S.  It’s called F&F, have you heard of it? F&F is a british-inspired fashion label that has clothing items for the whole family. The prices are very affordable, and they have a wonderful selection of apparel. I had never heard of F&F until I saw it pop-up in  Hyvee. Hy-vee is a midwest grocery store, and they have expanded in many different areas, and many different ways. Some of there new expansions are fresh markets (resturants), gas stations, F&F, and I’m sure there will be more to come.

I haven’t known Hy-vee from the beginning, but I do know they have come a long way with the company growth and expansion on so many levels. I love that Hyvee is starting to become that one stop shop. You can get your groceries, but also go shopping for clothing items for the whole family. What a wonderful concept many will love. There is also a wonderful giveaway at the end of this post that you have to enter! So keep reading.

Velvet and Fishnets

velvetandfishnets

Hello all!! My life has been crazy lately and I have missed posting. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was full of work, holiday party, and relaxation. We officially had our first snow fall on Sunday, but the snow melted right away. I know we will have snow in no time and I’ll be ready. Don’t you guys worry, I’ll be bundled up like Ralphie’s little brother Randy from The Christmas Story. 🙂 I do not mess around with snow or the cold. velvetandfishnets7 velvetandfishnets4

Chic-ing Cute Bomber

chicingcutebomber8 chicingcutebomber0 I seriously couldn’t turn down this ‘Chic-ing Cute Bomber jacket from Zaful. First of all, it is my favorite color. Second of all, the gold zippers and hardware are a great addition, and third there are also two pen holders on the sleeve… haha like why not. You sold me, Zaful.

Zaful is an online shop, and I love shopping with them. This is the second time that I have shopped with them, and the clothes are wonderful. Not once have I received something I didn’t like or didn’t fit me just right. The clothes arrive within a good amount of time, and I feel I can always find something trendy and very affordable. I’m all about affordable cute clothing, because trends are changing all the time. Zaful does a wonderful job with sticking to the current trends we are all loving right now. chicingcutebomber4

Sweater Dress Weather

sweaterdressweather4 sweaterdressweather3

So it’s not up to me or you, but the temperatures are dropping, and you know what that means.  It means that it is sweater dress weather. I can’t complain about it because I love sweater dresses, although I’m not a big fan of the cold. You can style them in so many ways. Sweater dresses look amazing with just the dress or you can add some cute tights to the look to spice it up. I am loving my new boots from Aldo and they go so well with my dress. The color of these boots is just perfect, they will match with so much.

Sweater dresses are an amazing item of clothing that you should have. They are perfect for this cold weather, and, if you haven’t invested in a good sweater dress,  I think you should find a cute one and add it to your wardrobe. The more I look at how I styled this look the more I think I should have added a scarf or a statement necklace. My fashion is at a constant change though, and I’m inspired everyday to wear something new, style something new, and step out of the box. I can’t say step out of my comfort zone because I am totally up for wearing something different. sweaterdressweather9

Business Savvy Girl Boss

When I grow up I want to be a “Business Savvy Girl Boss”. Who’s with me? businesssavvygirlboss8 businesssavvygirlboss6

Even though I am a 20-something-year-old. I still feel that I have a lot more growing up to do. I feel even when I’m in my 30’s, I’ll still have a lot more growing up to do. To say that you are still growing up is not a problem. Since birth we have always had to grow up and learn more, experience more, and explore more. That’s just what us humans have to do.

I think it is wonderful to always want to learn, grow, and achieve new obstacles, and this is why I want to become a business savvy girl boss. There are many things you as an individual can do to become a business savvy girl boss and I want to give you some pointers. businesssavvygirlboss7

Light Pink Delight

lightpinkdelight5 lightpinkdelight9 Hello All. Sorry for being MIA lately. Life has been very busy for me, and I have really been enjoying it, but it can be hard sometimes. My photographer when on vacation to Ireland, and I wish she would  have packed me in her suitcase so I could have gotten some awesome photos and experienced all the pubs in a beautiful part of Ireland. Her trip sounded like a dream, and I know that I have to visit sooner than later. Anyhow, I am here to tell you about this chic-ing fabulous light pink delight sweater I got from Forever21. lightpinkdelight1 Continue Reading

Coffee Brown, Maroon + Pink

So lately I have been obsessing over Forever21 fashion. They have the cutest stuff, best prices, and I think the quality is pretty good. It’s always good to pick and choose wisely at any clothing store. I know how fabrics will hold up so I know what to buy from Forever21.  I learned in school that you can spend $100 on a sweater, but that doesn’t mean it is good quality. Sometimes I think that is hard for some to hear. I have bought super expensive clothing before, and the quality didn’t hold up like I thought it would. Which was extremely disappointing.  coffeebrownmaroonpink coffeebrownmaroonpink0 coffeebrownmaroon_pink10 I always seem to be in the middle of a closet revamp as well, that is never ending. I am obsessed with velvet this year, but next year velvet may not even be in anymore. It is hard to find a happy medium when it comes to filling my closet with the right things, at the right prices, and a reasonable quality that will last for the season. I love splurging on something expensive, but I also know what I should be splurging on. My main act of splurging right now is on luxury handbags. I have my Louis Vuitton that I bought on my own which is my pride and joy, but I am looking into a new handbag. I’m not sure what to get next. Gucci or Burberry?

Stay Healthy x Workout Gear

When working out outside, it is very important to be visible. Why not wear my Pink Slouchy top from The Mint Julep Boutique? Out of all the colors there were to choose from, I picked out this gem. You might be wondering why, and that answer is because pink is my favorite color. I have been wearing this top in a few different ways. I think it is a great top to wear casually with a vest and scarf, and the other way I like to style it is with my workout gear. These days, I love to workout in a long sleeve or a sweatshirt, so this is perfect for working out outside and indoors. stayhealthyxworkoutgear stayhealthyxworkoutgear4 The top is extremely soft and perfect for those chilly days when you just can’t seem to get warm. I can tell you that I’ll be wearing it even more when the snow starts to fall, because I am going to become a little inside nester. I am so not ready of the snow to fall. It won’t stop me from working out though. It might just motivate me more to do more at-home workouts.

Working out is a choice. It is very important to stay health and in shape. Since I was younger, I have been obsessed with sports and always took them seriously. I remember always loving the team aspect of working out. You always had your teammates going through the same pain as you, but you would all support each other at the same time. I think that is what made me really stick with sports. That was the foundation I needed to set me up for over all health and wellness. stayhealthyxworkoutgear0
