Ladi Like Style: Summer Color Play

Ladi Like Style

I am a big fan of color blocking. A fun way to incorporate it into your summer style is to pair a bold pair of yellow pants with a fab printed top and a bright green bag just for kicks.  These metallic flat sandals makes this the perfect weekend outfit for a street festival, doing a little shopping, or discovering hidden gems in your town.

My Little Secrets "Soul" Lacefront Wig Review

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I ordered a second wig from My Little Secrets Online and would be posting a review.  I apologize for the delay; at first I was hesitant about how much I wanted to share about this experience but I realized that it is my duty as a blogger to keep it all the way here we go!

When Print Meets Peplum (OOTD)

Not only is this top the perfect of marriage of peplum and a print, it was the first item I ever ordered from Asos so it totally represents the start of a wonderful shopping relationship!

How To Wear A Crop Top

How To Wear A Crop Top

With a High Waist Bottom. A high waist bottom minimizes the amount of skin shown and can provide a level of comfort for those trying a crop top for the first time. The location of the waistline is key to creating a flattering look. By wearing a bottom that starts right at your natural waistline, emphasis is brought to the smallest part of your waist. To camouflage a tummy or create an hourglass look, opt for a skirt with volume (such as an a-line cut or a skater skirt such as the center look above) or even a wide-legged or trouser style pant.

Ladi Like Style: Prim & Ladi Like

Prim & Ladi Like

I know absolutely nothing about flowers and my thumb is anything but green, however I can appreciate a great floral print. Nothing makes me feel more feminine than a floral print, and this outfit based around this lovely yellow floral dress is the true definition of Ladi Like.   From the full skirt to the soft pastel accessories  and classic pumps, this look is giving me all sorts of posh, pretty, and romantic style. I could totally see Charlotte from Sex and the City rocking this!

What do you think of of this look?

Celebrity Style: Looking Like A Bag Of Money?

Source: Splash News; Getty Images

Lately it seems as if celebs have been taking the phrase "looking like a bag of money" quite literally. One of Rihanna's stage looks for her current Diamonds World Tour was a short, holographic money print dress which I can only imagine would have been perfect for a perforance of "Pour It Up" (all I see is dollar signs!). Ciara tore up the BET Awards 2013 stage and danced her heart out in a sheer dollar print blouse and a matching pair of joggers.  Miley Cyrus took a break from twerking and was spotted out at Trader Joe's rocking a two-piece crop top and skirt combo covered in dollars.

Honestly...I'm not a fan. I love a fun print but something about single dollar bills just screams cheap to me. And gaudy. What do you think? Would you rock a money print?

Work It: Neon Lace

It has been a couple of months since I've done a "Work It" post but to be honest, my work wardrobe has been totally uninspired lately. I've been in a rut, just going through the motions, wearing the same few dresses  week after week with no thought.  I picked up this neon lace skirt during an amazing Belk's Red Dot sale (for only $10!!!) and it was just what I needed to get my work style back on track!

Marley Twists

Last week I took a trip to the beauty supply store with the intention of doing something different with my hair. I planned to just try some new products or buy some temporary hair dye for a summer color change for the summer, but somehow I walked out with 3 packs of Marley hair with the idea of doing my own Marley Twists.

Dope Hair Crop Top (OOTD)

I'm a sucker for a cute statement tee. I especially love one that makes a statement about something  I care about. Needless to say, this "Dope Hair" tee is right up my alley! One of my favorite natural hair vloggers (who I credit for me learning how to do a bantu knot-out!) and blogger at Et Cetera Blog Magazine has released a line of natural hair tees and bold accessories. The t-shirt designs are DOPE and affordable! Check them out here.
