Little Black Maxi

As you guys know I love fashion and dresses! I came across this solid black maxi dress at Original Piece Boutique in Jacksonville, Florida. As soon as I saw it I fell in love! I love the neckline and the side slit! It’s perfect for date nights or for a night out with the girls!

I decided to try it on and it fits amazing! I love the accented top because I can do a simple necklace and a pair of my favorite heels or flats to dress this look up or down!
This maxi is a new favorite… let’s be honest can you ever have too many little black dresses? I took a selfie in the dress so you guys could see what it looks like on!

Find Your Paradise

I had an awesome time during this photoshoot and I love this photo. It reminds me to ‘Find Your Paradise,’ with this dress and with the whole atmosphere of the photo.

This dress I wore I got as soon as the shoot was finished. It’s from Original Piece and I love the vintage style and the paradise print on this dress. I love that it’s a midi length (because it’s a perfect length for me) and I love that it’s a wrap style so I can adjust how it fits.
In the shoot I was barefoot when I wore it, but you can pair this dress with sandals too for a fun flirty fit. When I wore this look out at night I paired it with these new gladiator themed sandals from Target, and for a daytime casual look I paired it with Jack Roger sandals.

Live in Color

Spring is in the air and that means it’s time to live in color. I love bright colors and I love making a statement wherever I go. As the saying goes: ‘why blend in when you were born to stand out?’ I definitely love that quote because it’s so true.

It’s time to embrace your style in a bold fun way. I absolutely LOVE this photo from Ralphi’s Photography and I LOVE this bold dress from Original Piece. The colors of this dress are bold and fun and make me think of the tropical whether. It’s the perfect dress for spring and summer.
I also love the shoulder cutouts and the adjustable straps on this shift dress. The added tassels give it a fun trendy twist that is a definite favorite of mine.

Capture your own originality and express this week in color through your fashion choice. I love this dress from Original Piece and I love the tassel additions. It gives this dress a trendy twist I love. Plus, I’m a huge fan of the new off-the-shoulder trend and this dress had all of that. You can pair this dress with sandals or wedges and dress it up for a fun date night or for a fun girls’ night in.

Just A Camo Girl, Living in A Camo World

So I officially joined the camo trend and I have to say I LOVE the camo trend! It has an edgy, yet fun twist that I love.

The edgy twist is just what my wardrobe has been missing! Today I paired by camo top from Original Piece with simply denim leggings and my Steve Madden combat boots. The spirit top I’m wearing is so comfortable and I love the length of it! My Steve Madden combats are so comfortable too and are definitely ones that I will be wearing a lot more.
I have to say I can’t wait to get more camo in my wardrobe! I know there are tons of camo colors out there but the traditional color mix is just what I’ve been waiting for! Are you loving the camo trend? Comment below and let me know!
