Spring Time In The City

Spring time is by far my favorite season with Fall coming in at a hard second!! There’s something about the colors and the newness of spring that makes me feel rejuvenated. Its like God is speaking through his beautiful creations….Nature. Its also a great time for fashion! I love expressing the Spring season through my outfits. Some of my favorite colors are yellows and pinks. I have even taken a liking to lavenders. I would love to share with you guys how I pair items together to create the perfect Spring look. I will also be shouting out some boutiques for you to check out as well.

Flaunt Your Season!!

During Spring (or any season), I love to wear colors that compliment the season. Makes it more alive! As you know, yellow is one of my favorite seasonal colors, so when I saw these amazing yellow flare pants, I had to snag them!! Flare has made such a huge comeback and should be in every girls wardrobe. These comfortable flair pants paired with this cute simple crop top made for the perfect Spring outfit. To add a little pizazz, as I did, throw on a cute hat. A super easy way to dress up a causal outfit.

Another great seasonal color that I love is blue. Powder and baby blues are such soft cozy colors and such suitable colors for the season. This maxi dress from Subtle & Sass Boutique (@subtle_and_sass) is perfect for the everyday woman. I love clothing that can be used in a variety of settings. This dress is that. Great for church or brunch, this dress wont disappoint. To be a little extra as I usually am, I adorned my head with a flower headband. What types of accessories do you like?

I love a nice pair of jeans! I found my perfect jean shopping at Fashion Nova. Skinny, bootcut or flare, their jeans provide the best stretch and accentuates my assets in the perfect way! I love a good dark wash because it makes colors pop. Paired with this tropical off the shoulder top and wedged sandals, this outfit screams HAPPY HOUR!

Jumpsuits will forever remain a staple in my wardrobe because its easy..its literally a whole outfit in one! A little hack for those who are fashion challenged. Jumpsuits come in a variety of styles and colors and even range from really casual to super dressy! You cant go wrong with one.

Strolling Downtown in this rusty orange number with white accessories. The white really brightens everything up to create a clean look. Finding colors that can be easily matched with other colors is a good rule of thumb because you can essentially create many looks using the same base. Work smarter, not harder.

Its Fashion. Have Fun!!

Looking your best doesn’t have to be hard. Find your comfort zone and work from there. Fashion is suppose to be fun and a way for people to express themselves. Don’t make it harder than it has to be. Experiment with colors and styles. Get dressed up and take fun pictures. Life in itself already comes with challenges and trial. Your closet doesn’t have to.

I hope you guys enjoyed this content and have found new ways to style and add to your wardrobe. Thank you so much for the continued love and support. Stay safe amidst this crisis and a always God Bless. xoxo

Farewell August, Hello September!

August has come to an end and September is quickly approaching!! It is insane how quickly time is flying. It makes you think about how short life really is. With that in mind, stop putting off those plans, dreams and ideas and do them NOW!! There’s no better time than right now! Go for it! I believe in you.. 🙂

August Highlights

August was such a great month! Full of celebration and new beginnings. I celebrated my 30th birthday and had an amazing time with a group of friends.

We had dinner at Eli’s Table located on Meeting Street. This was my first time eating there and I was extremely satisfied. The customer service was AMAZING!! I was given a complimentary glass of champagne as the birthday girl and our server was gracious enough to play cameraman for us.

To some it may have seemed like a pretty lame way to celebrate 30 years, but it was perfect for me. I wasn’t interested in doing anything too crazy.

A New Path

I started a new position at work which was pretty exciting. For the entirety of my career I spent my time on Patrol and for the first time I am in a new enviroment entirely; the SCHOOLS!! We are about 3 weeks in and I am starting to see how my purpose can be fulfilled here. Our children spend the majority of their day in school. For some children, school is the only positive atmosphere in their life. With that being said, it is very important for teachers, and myself, to make a positive impact in their lives.

Being an SRO, you have choices. You can chose to sit in your office all day and do nothing, or you can choose to go out and interact with the students and staff. Get to know your school. Attend meetings. Open the doors for the car riders. I love talking to the students. I love walking down the hallways and giving high fives as the kids walk from class to class. Its those little gestures that makes huge impacts.

Another thing I learned after Week 1 of being in the schools. Vitamin C!!!!! I am currently getting over a cold after spending time in one of my favorite 5th grade classes. Thank goodness it wasn’t Strep!

I must admit, I am happy to see Summer come to a close. I am ready for the beautiful Fall decor, those beautiful oranges and greens and those cozy comfy over-sized sweaters!! Are you ready for Fall?
