Faux Leather Jacket “Restyled”

For this look, I restyled the faux leather jacket and jewel embellished jeans.  The top added a little color for some spring feels.  I chose the leopard print heels to spice things up a bit.  A little leopard goes a long way and I have no problem wearing it for any season!

“Comfort & Style” with Cole Haan

When it comes to my style, I love my heels.  I can also appreciate when designers perfectly blend style and comfort at unparalleled prices!  These Cole Haan stitch oxfords are super comfy and get major style points!  The Genevieve woven tote is definitely my favorite bag at the moment. The shoes and bag were on sale at the outlet store in Houston. We did a little shopping on our last visit. I’m so glad I got to take advantage of some sales.

For this look, I decided to pair a soft, cold-shoulder blouse that just happened to go perfect with the shoes. I added a few accessories and of course I’m carrying my favorite bag. What’s your favorite pair of comfy stylish shoes and your go to bag. Let me know what you guys think about this look.

Love you all,

“Still A Texas Girl”

You can take the girl out of Texas but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.  I’m still a Texas girl at heart but I’m stepping out of my comfort zone with these boots.  These faux snakeskin boots by Cape Robbin were on sale at Nordstrom Rack.

For this look, I decided to keep it simple pairing a black top and blue denim.  These boots didn’t need any help making a statement.  I added a cream faux leather jacket to brighten things up a bit.

Bright Yellow Top

I came to brighten these grey Seattle winter skies!  Could this top be any brighter?  With spring in the air, this bright yellow is the perfect color to bring in the season.

Vibrant, confident, and happy as ever.  One color can evoke so many feelings.  The color yellow brings joy to many because it is associated with happiness and positivity.  It is the color of sunshine and it captures our attention immediately with its luminosity.  Yellow is not my favorite color but it is certainly not last on my list.  I also love the way it looks on me.  What are some of your favorite colors?  What bright colors would you wear or not?  Let me know what you guys think about this look.

Love you all,

“Soft Trench Coat”

I may not have the advantage of the in store shopping experience, but NY&C is still one of my favorite retailers.  Since there are no NY&C stores in the state of Washington, shopping online is my only option for now.  It’s just another one of those things I had to accept after moving from Houston.  I am not a fan of online shopping for everything.  There are those items that I actually prefer to try on before making a purchase.

For this look, I decided to pair this green soft trench coat with one of my little black dresses.  The leopard print heel adds a little flavor to the mix.  This is the perfect look for a dinner or date night out when you want to keep it simple.  Let me know what you guys think about this look.

Love you all,

Alicia

“My Aunties Bracelet”

 

This post is a very special one! For the first time I’m wearing one of the items that belonged to my Aunt Mattie. It was an emotional moment as I opened my package to look through her items that I had chosen. I’m so grateful to have these gifts from her closet. Thank you Sonya!
As a young girl, I often looked forward to visiting my aunt’s house, especially for family gatherings. We would always have the best time. Although I’m certain there were times we got on her last nerve, she never let us know it! ☺
These are just some of the great memories I have of her. My aunt was an absolute classic beauty with such timeless style and effortless grace. More importantly, she was just as beautiful on the inside. She had a heart so loving and spirit so kind. I miss her so much but I’m thankful for the time I had with her.
I’ll always remember how special she was! ❤
In Loving Memory of
🙏🏽

For this look I decided to wear this beautiful bracelet that was hidden away in one of my aunt’s bags that I have. It was a special surprise. What makes it even sweeter, I already have the same bracelet in a different color. 💛🖤

“Lucky Denim Dress”

I’m loving everything about this denim dress from the button front to the frayed hem.  This dress is super comfortable and just the right cut for my full figured thick thighs and everything else!  It was on sale at Lucky Brand for around $60.  I believe the regular price was around $98.  The prices listed are as close as I can remember.  For this look, I decided to add a printed scarf to make it a bit more fun.  Pairing this dress with the red otk boots only felt like the perfect combination.  Let me know what you guys think about how I styled this look.

Love you all,

Alicia
