3 Mix & Matchable Outfits For Europe

Hey B*tches!

I am so excited to be sharing three of the outfits I am taking to Europe with me in a few weeks, I love putting together travel looks and these three from Apricot Lane are definitely some of my favourites! Building outfits for traveling is such a struggle because you want them to look cute but be comfy enough to explore in and also be able to pack easily. Thankfully these three outfits hit all those criteria so lets just jump into it!

This first travel look is one of my favourites! I am a huge fan of jumpsuits and I love the versatility of this one. As you can see I styled it with and without the leopard kimono. The kimono is also a great piece because I can use that with other outfits on the trip, for example, a black tee and shorts so it is definitely a good piece to travel with. The white jumpsuit can also be paired with different coverups and you could pair it with sandals to dress it down a bit more than the wedges.

For accessories I went with these freaking adorable strawberry earrings just to add a fun pop of colour, they also have a little sparkle to them and I mean they’re literal STRAWBERRIES how could I not!?

I used this fun little scrunchie in some of the shots sans kimono just to add that little leopard pop, I love how scrunchies are making a comeback! They are such a fun way to add a little fun to your look. Also how CUTE is the back detailing on this jumpsuit!?

I also paired this outfit, as well as the upcoming two, with these QUAY shades( for EVERYONE wondering its pronounced “key” I didn't know either lol) they are just so versatile and cute. They literally pair well with every outfit which makes them perfect for traveling and peek that leopard case though!

For shoes I went with these black wedges. I am a sucker for wedges when I’m traveling because I really don’t want to miss out on the height that heels bring little 5’2 me but I also want to be comfy so enter wedges. I chose black because they will be easiest to mix and match with the other outfits I pack but white would be super cute too just not with this white jumpsuit!

Now onto this super cute pink halter top dress! I absolutely love to wear dresses when I’m traveling because like jumpsuits they are also a complete outfit. They are usually thin fabric making them hella easy to pack and save space. I really like that this particular dress has some ruching at the front so it can hide my food babies on the trip ;)

I paired this dress with these matching beaded earrings. Seriously though can we take a moment to admire HOW WELL they match!?! Also they are actually really light despite all the beading!

For shoes I went with these cute Corky sandals. If you haven’t tried Corky you DEFINITELY need to especially if you have a trip coming coming up. They are some of the most comfy sandals you will ever wear, trust me! And look adorbs while being comfy which is a rare find.

Last but not least is another jumpsuit and this one might just be my favourite you guys. I mean look at that pattern? I am a walking tropical paradise lol! I paired this look with and without the suede jacket because depending on where I am and the weather, I would be wearing it accordingly. I do like that I can just throw on the jacket if I get a bit chilly in the evenings so I would 100% recommend carrying something to layer up with.

I decided to pair both looks with this super fun “Low Key” straw fedora. I also carrying a hat of some kind with me when I am traveling because if you didn’t have time to do your hair or wash it you can always throw on a hat an look completely put together. It has saved me soooo many times!

I paired these bright blue shag earrings with both looks as well as the Quay sunnies and fedora. With all the colours in this jumpsuit you could honestly pair it with so many different earrings because there are so many colours to choose from. I just liked the pop of blue!

Too Glam To Give A Damn

Hey, Hey B*tches

Happy Monday Babes! I hope your week is starting off as great as you ;) I am currently recovering from my trip to Houston where I hosted Basic Blogger Brunch Saturday! It was so great getting to meet and mingle with some old and new Houston Blogger Babes. ANYWAY this post is all about my new fave accessory, Statement Bobby Pins so lets focus on those LOL!

Facetune_30-07-2019-18-46-24.JPG

KITSCH sent me a few of their statement bobby pins to try and I wasn’t sure how I was feeling about them until I styled them and got them shot. After seeing the pics I was IN LOVE with them. They can literally work with almost any outfit, dressy or casual, and add such a fun pop to them. I went from “ IDK about these things???” to “I NEED ALL THE STATEMENT PINS!!” in one shoot!

I chose the Glam & Damn pins because Too Glam To Give A Damn is literally one of my all time favourite sayings. Plus I already had this vision of styling them with a super fancy dress set in a casual setting and that just fits the whole TGTGAD vibe am I right or am I right!?

If you are looking for something to spice up your outfits with and give your hair a little more attention I 10/10 recommend getting some statement bobby pins. If you want the exact ones shown in my pics here are the links for Glam & Damn. Once you start using these you will be hooked trust me!!

DFWomen Expo Recap

Heyyyy B*tches!

I hope you are all having a FAB week so far! Today is one of my first days off, well sort of I still have some at home work but NOTHING ELSE, in foreverrrr! Nothing is better than getting to look homeless at home while I edit :P

I’m ready to get this DFWomen Expo Recap rolling but first, for those of you who don’t know about DFWomen let me give you a little background.

DFWomen is a community that was created by Lilly Montana( pictured above) to help support and uplift DFW women. I first found it when I moved to Dallas and they were so supportive of my blogging journey. They have an Instagram page that is all about featuring awesome DFW boss babes as well as helping them grow and connect. You know how much I LOVE women who support other women and are genuine about it so that is why I support DFWomen in any way I can. Now on to the event!

The DFWomen Expo is a yearly event that DFWomen puts on where they showcase a ton of local businesses run by DFW boss women. They have fun giveaways, live performances, DJs, photo ops. etc. It is such a fun event filled with women supporting women and I freaking LOVE it!

I had such a great time browsing through all the adorable products that were being sold, supporting local business women is always a good idea. I also ran into a bunch of my favourite local boss babes and got to catch up with them. It was honestly just a great day filled with awesome boss women vibes.

If you are in DFW and haven’t followed DFWomen on Insta and FB WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??? You won’t find a better, more genuine group of ladies anywhere in DFW. I am so glad that I was lucky enough to find them when I moved here and I have loved watching them grow.
