No suit is made equal! Finding the perfect suit can be annoying and frustrating, yep I get it. After many trial and errors in finding the right suit I finally came across this Ebay beauty. Shoutout to Ebay because who doesn’t love a good deal. Now the time is right to pair your suit with just about whatever you feel comfortable rocking. I decided to pair mine with a cropped blush pink turtleneck. I needed a suit like jelly need peanut butter! lol! Now the time has come and I feel good about this one! The turtleneck crop is courtesy of my impulsive fashion design decision to make something boring that much more interesting. So this shirt was indeed the “thing” caught in the crossfire. Anyways I’ve scoured the inter web for more suits in fun different colors so if you’d like to see a post about all the ones I’ve purchased lately. Lmk?! It’s Monday morning and raining profusely and while I’d like to say I’m being productive, I’m simply not! I’m having an almond latte from my fave cafe and people watching! Haha Happy Monday Folks :-)
I've been inspired a lot lately by prints and I was especially inspired by Beyoncé Vogue September issue. And I wanted to create a no fussy summer outfit centered around mixing prints, glam and comfort. The printed bomber from BEBE is perfect for the awkward weather we've been having here in NYC. It's incredibly light weight and great for moving about your day comfortably.
I wanted to glam this look up by going for my black sequin midi skirt. I love that the two pieces did not compete with one another. I whore platform shoes to add comfort and edge. My cow print handbag worked well with my look and I predict a resurgence of cow print everything coming out this Fall/Winter. I'm a true Texan girl so western wear is a no brainer.
Adding anything extra to this look would have been an over kill so I finished my look off with my square gold earrings which has worked well with everything!

I've found that pairing gold with everything is not only chic but a great way to elevate your style game. Things took a turn when all of my favorite silver accessories begin to pop out at me too.
The original formula for this look started with my gold blouse. Although I still wanted to remain casual I went for my color block denim skirt that never fails to pull everything together.
My bag from Ebay had just arrived and I was more then anxious to test drive it. My studded strappy sandals gave the outfit an extra embellishment.
After shimmying around in this blouse I decided it was time to test drive the look and what I discovered was that it's still too hot to wear this blouse. Can we say "HOT BOX"! This blouse left me wallowing in my own fashion sweat. I want lie I rushed home to take it off immediately. Such a rookie mistake to challenge the sun to a match. It won fair and square. lol! My next post however will be #ootd number two. A more subtle and less fussy look compared to the topper on this.
As summer sketches to an end I'll be sure to rework this blouse on a much cooler day. After all the shirt had me at first sight. :-)

Rainbows make me happy! I'll also bet they make you happy too. I've seen rainbows everywhere trending from bags, shoes, jewelry and I'm loving it. I found these cool pair in a random discount store but I've searched the internet to find a similar pair and other rainbow items I'm loving.
Watermelon is my favorite summer fruit. I've seriously eaten it everyday this summer and can't get enough.
My outfit was quite simple this time around. I wore my black high waist trouser with a striped button up. I tied my button up to make it more interesting. By adding lots of accessories like my tortoise sunglasses, some arm candy, and a few rings it definitely gave my look the amp it needed
I know I talk a lot about adding accessories to every look but it's the best way to pull an outfit together and look instantly chic. I call it the "I woke up like this" affect! Yes you did and your outfit is badass too. Ha!
These earrings are so neat and I love how interesting they make my outfit. I styled them again in this post here.
I've linked a few more pairs I'm loving. Comment below and have a great day! :-)

It's not every day when I reach for a bodysuit but I've recently discovered the geniuses and functionality about them again and I'm wondering why I've never took to them the first time.
Let's face it, a great bodysuit has to be comfortable and stylish. Putting together this look was one and done. I love the fact that it's one shoulder, all the better for showing off your décolletage right? Right! ;-)
Besides the fact that this bodysuit is a quick solution to getting dressed, I'm also excited that it's color block which makes pairing any bottom with it a dream. Because the suit is sporty chic I decided to contrast the sporty feel of it with a chartreuse wrap midi skirt for a chic approach. Chartreuse is a great summer color and pairs well with just about anything.
I was gifted with this bag from a good friend. It is actually a camera lens case but I decided I liked it better as a cool mini bag because of it's unusual shape.
I spent the day in my all time favorite area, Dumbo!
Hope you all are enjoying your day. Comment below other great shops for bodysuits! :-)
