Crop Tops & Mom Jeans

Hey My Loves!

It’s been forever I know, so much has been happening in the world-that when I tell you I needed a break I needed a break. I was mentally and physically exhausted -drained to capacity. I’m sure I’m not the only one either, for the most part it seems as if it’s been rough on us all in some way and as an empath oh man did I feel it. Honestly I didn’t know when I would get back to feeling myself again. Would you believe me if I told you I haven’t worn makeup since February and this is my first time actually putting on a pair of jeans since then. I was just happy it fit me lol. Funny story, but when I was getting ready for this shoot I totally forgot a little of my makeup routine gohhhh -I was sitting at my vanity like….umm what comes next lmao needless to say it took me a min. Oh and I didn’t even realize I ran out of foundation smh. But when I was all done and ready I felt amazing and instantly yelled at myself for not getting back to this earlier. Once I was dressed and out the door my anxiety instantly went away I could hardly wait for us to upload and edit these pix.

I decided to keep my look simple I wanted my head wrap nails and shoes to get all the attention hahah. This has to be my fave pair of heels ever- trust me I’m gonna find some way to wear it even when I’m 90 lol. Crop tops and high waist jeans screams summer to me and when I saw this top I had to have it. It’s so chic and the details in the sleeves are my favorite; so extra! I’ve been eying these jeans for a while, I love the cropped look of it-it’s freaking amazing with heels- without- not so much. I literally bought 3 smh don’t tell the hubbz -but I’m a jeans type of gurl even in the Summer I had to stop myself yesterday from buying another pair I saw online- so I wanted to stock up. Plus mom jeans in the fall with a cropped denim or leather jacket I dieeeeeeee.

I almost forgot to mention the star of the show lol my headwrap! It’s def a fave! The colors are so vibrant and fun you can literally wear it with any outfit and I love that. So if you decide to just get one wrap for the summer I’d say don’t go with a nude or black get something bright and fun and playful. although solid colors are good to have on hand too:) But you’ll instantly put everyone in a good mood around you too.

That’s it for now guys, see ya in the next post! Love Uzz.

Thanks for reading guys!

3 Tips to Stop Overspending on Clothes

3 Tips to Stop Overspending on Clothes

Hey My Loves!

So the average person spends just over $160 each month on clothes. Maybe that doesn’t seem like much to you, or maybe it sounds like a lot if you’re on a tight budget. The good news? You don’t have to break the bank in order to buy clothes that you’ll love, or to look fabulous every single day

If you love shopping and love looking and feeling your best, there are ways to get the clothes you want without blowing your budget. Let’s look at a few tips to make it happen so you can slay all day erryday.

1. Take a Better Look at Your Budget

If you don’t already have a budget, one of the best things you can do is to create one, and factor in how much you think you can spend on clothing each month. This will give you a better idea of where you can cut back in order to get the things you actually want. 

Maybe one month you cut back in other areas to afford more high end designer clothing, and next month you cut back on clothes to shift that money somewhere else. The great thing about a budget is that it can help you to see exactly where your money is going, and what you can move around in order to stay within your financial means.

2. Choose Quality Clothing

While it can feel good to have a bag full of new clothes to bring home, it’s a good idea to shift your mindset when you’re going shopping. Choose quality over quantity. This is an important perspective for a few reasons. 

First, when you choose quality clothing over something that may not last very long, you’re truly getting your money’s worth. You can feel good about spending more money because you know you’re getting something that will withstand a little wear and tear. If you buy a cheaper clothing item only for it to fall apart after a few times wearing it, you’re going to have to buy more clothes, and may even end up spending more money. 

Additionally, cheaper clothing that falls apart isn’t good for the environment. Shop sustainably so there is less textile waste around the world. That means buying clothing that will last without having to be thrown out. 

3. Browse Your Closet

Did you know that most people only utilize about 20% of what’s in their closet? You may not even know everything you have in there if you’re constantly buying new clothes. 

No more unwanted baggage; the golden rules of tidying up to de ...

So, don’t be afraid to shop your closet when you’re looking for something to wear. You might have the perfect top to go with your new jeans, or a pair of shoes you’ve never worn before that would be great for a night out. Take stock in the things you already have. You might be surprised as to what really works together without having to spend an extra dime. 

As you can see, you don’t have to give up your passion for fashion in order to stay within a monthly budget. Get creative with your clothes-buying routines, and determine how much you can spend before hitting the stores.

As always, thanks for reading guys!

How To Look Fabulous Every Day Of The Week

How To Look Fabulous Every Day Of The Week

An excellent way to boost your self-confidence is to look your best each day. You want to be able to look in the mirror every morning and love what you see before leaving the house.

I’m here to tell you there are steps you can take that will help you to look fabulous every day of the week. No longer will you have to feel shy or embarrassed about your appearance or as though you don’t deserve any attention. Implement these tips, and you’ll be on your way to walking around with your head held high and having a greater sense of what self-love is and how to ensure you’re practicing it more often.

Get Enough Sleep

You’re not going to be able to look your best when you’re tired and sleepy-eyed. Therefore, commit to getting enough sleep each night of the week. Come up with a relaxing bedtime routine you can follow to help you calm down and relax. For example, take a warm bath or read a good book instead of playing on your electronics. You’ll wake up feeling rejuvenated and ready to seize the day. You won’t have to deal with bags or dark circles under your eyes and will have plenty of energy to focus on getting yourself ready for the day.

Clean out Your Closet

It’s going to be challenging to look fabulous every day of the week if you don’t have the right attire in your closet or it’s messy. Therefore, take the time to clean out your closet and fill it with pieces and garments you love. Don’t be afraid to get rid of or donate what you no longer enjoy wearing or items that are out of style. Make room for new attire that you can purchase at the stores and hang in your closet so that you feel excited to get dressed each day. Have a mix of options so that you have plenty to choose from, whether you’re getting ready for work, a night out on the town, or a casual event.

Focus on Accessories

Accessories can go a long way in helping you to look fabulous each day of the week. A few ideas include having a couple of favorite pieces of jewelry you can throw on with your outfits.Also, if you wear glasses, then consider looking at the web choice before purchasing a trendy pair of round eyeglasses that will make you look smart, sophisticated, and stylish. Be sure to have the right handbag to go with your attire and to use accessories to add fun and a splash of color to your ensemble.

Pick out Your Outfit the Night Before

You’ll save yourself time and headaches when you work ahead and pick out your outfit the night before. You can wake up knowing that you don’t have to waste precious time in the morning figuring out what you’re going to wear. It’ll give you time to try clothes on and pick the perfect attire for the occasion when you start the process early. Otherwise, you risk rushing around in the morning and choosing clothes that may not be right or as flattering because you felt pressure to get out the door.

Do Your Hair & Makeup

You can also look fabulous every day of the week by committing to doing your hair and makeup regularly. Take good care of yourself by getting a cut and color frequently to keep your locks looking healthy and shiny. Find a hairstyle that’s both attractive and easy to care for and do. You want to avoid having it feel like a chore to get ready every day. Also, play around with your makeup so that you have different looks for different occasions and days of the week. You’re going to feel more beautiful when you take time to comb your hair nicely, and you have on makeup that highlights the attractive features on your face.

Paint Your Nails

Another way to look fabulous every day of the week is to attend to your nails. Make sure they’re well-trimmed and polished. Pick out seasonal and trendy colors that will help your nails to stand out for all the right reasons. It’s not a bad idea to head to the nail salon every so often and get a professional manicure to clean up any loose ends. Polished nails are attractive, and you won’t be shy about showing off your hands and fingernails when you’re at work or out and about in public.

Choose the Right Shoes

The right pair of shoes can go a long way to helping improve your posture and how you carry yourself. You can look fabulous every day of the week by choosing shoes that are both stylish and comfortable. Be glad to know there are plenty of fashionable options when it comes to flats and shoes that won’t hurt your feet. In addition to comfort, have a variety of options in your closet so that you have an assortment of colors and styles to match any outfit you choose. If you want to wear heels at work then maybe have a nice pair of tennis shoes you can throw on to get you to and from the office and then change once you arrive at your job.

Exercise & Manage Your Stress Regularly

You may feel too tired to care about your looks and take care of yourself if you’re always stressed out. Therefore, find healthy ways to manage and deal with your worries and anxieties. When you do so, you’ll be able to function to the best of your ability each day. You’ll look more fabulous when you practice self-care and are attending to your mental health properly. One way to manage your stress and feel more confident in your clothes is to exercise daily. Exercise is an excellent way to release any negative feelings or emotions and clear your head. You’ll not only have more natural energy and be in a better mood most days, but you’ll also be toning your body and getting into better physical shape at the same time.

This is How To Let Your Personality Shine Through Your Style!

This is How To Let Your Personality Shine Through Your Style!

Your style is the essence of who you are distilled into the way you dress and present yourself. That is why it’s so crucial that you find ways to let your true personality and light shine through in the way that you dress. It’s also pretty fun to see fashion that way too, so with that in mind, check out my guide on how to make sure the way you dress reflects who you are. 


Color 

One of the most straightforward ways that you can let your personality shine through in what you wear is with color. In fact, as you can see from my other posts, I’m not shy about letting bright and bold colors speak for themselves. 

Of course, the easiest way to work colour into your wardrobe is to choose an accessory in a popping vibrant shade that will compliment your outfit. Bags and head wraps work particularly well, but statement necklaces, scarves, and even shoes can do the trick too.  

Design 

Of course, if you want to go all out on the customized front, you can invest in getting some pieces designed and made especially for you. A subject you can find more about at https://www.buzzfeed.com/kristinchirico/i-got-clothes-made-for-my-body-from-three-different-stores. In fact, there are several advantages to getting custom pieces of clothing or jewelry. 

The first is that they will be guaranteed to fit you like a glove because they will be made with your measurements rather than just to standard sizing. Something that can be a real pain as discussed at https://time.com/how-to-fix-vanity-sizing/.Additionally, by getting a custom piece made for you, you will have something that no one else in the world does. 

Obviously, when it comes to getting custom fashion pieces created, you will need to work with a designer, or at least a tailor or seamstress. While for jewelry, you can use a site like 

www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/search/ to find the loose stone that you want. Then you will be able to take this to a designer or maker and ask them to set it for you. Something that ones you will end up with a real one of a kind, and there is nothing that will let your personality shine through quite like that!  

DIY Customization 

It’s also helpful to note there are other ways if customizing pieces to reflect your personality apart from getting items made from scratch. In fact, making small alterations and customizations yourself is entirely possible. Something that can leave you with some seriously awesome clothes with which to express yourself too. 

Of course, one of the most on-trend and straightforward ways of doing this right now is to apply patches to your denim or leather items. Something you can read about doing at https://www.weavabel.com/apply-big-embroidered-patch-badges-garments/. You can even get an excellent selection for sites like ebay and amazon. 

Alternatively, how about attempting some more complex customizations such as fraying, ripping, or even a rework of a current piece like you can see in the video below? 


In fact, by doing the customization yourself, you get the fun of challenging yourself to do a new thing. You will also be left with a one-off piece that encapsulates your style that you can keep in your wardrobe (and wear, of course) for years to come! 

My Love for Statement Coats And Color*

My Love for Statement Coats And Color*

Hey My Loves!

Are you gushing over this coat as much as I am…I’m so so so in love. The color is perfect, so bright and vivid I mean you’d be able to spot me from a mile away honestly lol. I knew I wanted the outfit to be minimal so the coat can do all the work. I mentioned this in my last post as well; in the Winter all you need is an amazing statement coat and perfect accessories to go with it!

As I’m writing this I just realized that this could have been a look for NYFW. Oversized coats are a must during fashion week and oversized blazers are my favorite as well. I literally own every color blazer you can imagine, you can thank my many years in corporate for that. I plan on giving them their debut in the Spring and Summer months paired with short shorts. I’m seriously loving layered looks it just screams effort when in reality you barely tried hehe.

Is there anyone else obsessed with clear heels I can’t seem to get enough they compliment every outfit. I actually stop myself from wearing it as I own alot of shoes but for this look I couldn’t resist I plan on investing in a few more before these die on me…Are you guys loving clear heels as well? If so what brand are you obsessed with?

Can we talk about this headwrap? Yes! ok good:) Well first of all I love this freaking wrap omg, the colors are so bomb and it was the perfect match for my coat. I’m wearing “Glow up 2.0” from my brand WrapQueen.

Hmm what else has been going on in my world. I’m starting to feel a bit overwhelmed with life these days, especially with the news about Kobe Bryant, and I’m forcing myself to actually live, live each day being happy and grateful and being appreciative of the present. I’ve been loving on my kid a lot more too and trying my best to have him do all the things he loves at the moment which is Swimming. Yeap! I’m a swim mom lol. I never knew how to swim growing up, and seeing my son be a beast in the water, I’m beyond proud. I wake up each day listing 5 things I’m grateful for. And one of them is being able to work for myself which allows me to be with my husband and kid, seriously how lucky am I?

Wishing you all a productive week love u all so much!!

Unique Ways To Update Your Look

Unique Ways To Update Your Look

Hey My loves!

So many of us have our own style and thrive on sticking to that, but we all like a little bit of an update to our looks now and then; right? There is no real need to stick to one type of style as life is all about experimenting and having fun; and changing things up occasionally is important. Finding our style can help us with our confidence and ensure that we get a good sense of self. Generally, as teenagers we try all sorts of things out to find what suits us, which is why at that age things can seem a little cray. But as we get older we should still experiment with our looks and try new things. We can evolve, and improve ourselves over time if we try.

Piercings

Piercings are obviously very specific to the person and a personal choice. Having a personal piercing of some kind such as a surface tragus piercing can really help you finish off a certain “look” and this can be exciting and new if it is the first time you have tried them or if you’re into that! But it’s not something to be scared off, all you need to do is make sure that you have the right information about your intended piercer. For example their health and safety information, and whether they value hygiene as you do. This is essential since a piercing going wrong can be devastating to your health. Piercings can be incredible, and whether it’s your nose, a body piercing, or just some extra ones around your ears it certainly makes a statement. i plan on adding a few more to my ears during the Summer.

Next year’s fashion

Getting one step ahead, and doing some research about what next years fashion trends are can make you feel great, being organized, staying in the “know” can keep you ahead of fashion trends, which can help you stand out when the time is right! Although standing out isn’t necessarily the aim of the game, who am I kidding it definitely is! haha,when you’re looking to make a statement then this can be a winner. Ultimately keeping ahead of the fashion game is something that you can do for fun, you can also tell your followers about upcoming trends which they will love!

Hats

Normally, we don’t always tend to see people in hats, it’s not something that we all choose unless it’s a stylish hat in the winter. But being bold and making sure that you have a little bit of a statement hat, can really help you complete a look. Some people tend to choose to put a hat into their wardrobes, to ensure that they have options, or even have a hat as a part of a specific outfit. But whatever you choose to do, do it boldly and don’t worry about what others have to say- be you!

So don’t forget to try things out, experiment with your looks, and feel happy with your choices. At the end of the day you’re the one who has to wear your chosen accessories or outfits, so as long as you are happy when you look in the mirror nothing else matters. After all we are in 2020 and it’s time to live our best lives!
