LuLu’s Olive Denim Overall Dress

Overalls. When was the last time you wore them? For me, it was when I was in grammar school and it was that in-between stage of life. Where you still dressed like a kid but were on the brink of becoming a teenager. Since then I never looked back at wanting to wear them again. Until I saw this look on Pinterest.

Never did I think that I wanted to own a piece of clothing that was anywhere near overalls. I mean honestly the last time I wore them it was my mother’s khaki overalls that I wore with a baby blue shirt. Talk about a sign of the times! This olive green overall dress completely changed my mind. It was a bit different compared to the denim overalls that I associate with that “pre-teen” style memory.

Express High Waisted Flared Pants

The flared pant trend comes and goes every few seasons, I’ve never cared if they were in style or not they always flattered my body shape. My very first “real job” outfit was from Express, slowly thereafter my entire work wardrobe was from Express. The work pants come in various shapes and lengths, once you find a style you like it is worth buying it in a few different colors. 

Of course, my thyroid decided it no longer wanted to work properly and my weight began to fluctuate. Since then I have worked in industries where the dress code was more casual and there was no need for my favorite Express dress pants. Fast forward to early 2020 and I’m looking for flared pants once again because I am beyond over the straight leg trend.

Wrapped in Leather

Ask me if I’d rather wear sneakers or heels? The answer is always sneakers. But not all outfits look great with sneakers and I will be the first to admit that.

This wrapped leather skirt from Zara was a purchase from last season, I have been trying to find an excuse to wear it with sneakers or at least kitten heels and no such luck. Now while I still search for the perfect small heel to go with this look my all time favorite Steve Madden heels will do.

And then I broke the strap.

White Series: Pinterest Recreation

Pinterest is such a source of inspiration for fashion and style. The problem always lies in the fact that it has been shared and circulated throughout Pinterest so much that the source isn’t always clear. So how do I know where to shop the look? 

Luckily for me, I have my master’s in internet searching. I was able to narrow down this to a Zara Pleated Tunic Top (last season) and I’ve been nervous to wear it out. Why you may wonder?

Summer Outfit Ideas

Summer is just around the corner and we may or may not still be in quarantine. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t want to dress nice right? Most of us are focused on when this will all be over and we can begin to transition into a normal phase of life. So why not focus on something we can control? What we wear!

You are going to be in shock but I have a lot of colorful suggestions here and it isn’t the language I’m writing either…

May Wishlist

It didn’t feel right to do a wishlist or favorites recently given the times. And let’s be honest here, we’ve all been wearing sweat pants daily.

So I’ve been slowly adding things to wear for when this is all over (whenever that might be). And they are…

Escaping Anxiety

Feeling engulfed in your anxiety is an experience that not many can explain to others when you are in the depths of it. Everything feels blurred and yet you feel every emotion so strongly. Heart racing, no appetite, and just a constant feeling of fear. 

From roughly April 2016 to August 2016 I was in the pit of hell with my anxiety. To give you all a bit of a background on some of the things that transpired leading up to my mental break of 2016:
