SOOOOOOOO, I have completely neglected Birth of a Fashion Blogger for the last week now, I feel so ashamed! We all know life happens and the last week or so, life has been happening, lol! Well, at least I can come back to you guys with an exciting giveaway, right? This one is pretty special because of how much I've fallen in LOVE with this company! Come on in and see what's going on!
This post is going to be short and sweet since as I type this, I truly have one eye half open! I'm just flat out TIRED guys! This is the kids last week of school, but I feel like we've been in summer vacation mode for at least the last 3. What does that mean, Chanda? Well my son stays pretty busy in the summer from band, track and basketball (which is putting us at our energy max), but now the little one is starting with volleyball and possibly fast pitch and I'm on straight "E"! So forgive me, but this paragraph is all I have to give (in my Amerie voice)! Today, I'm remixing this gorgeous striped top from my BLACK + WHITE post in February!
Summer dresses are definitely a staple in Summer style! Since I'm still not too comfortable with wearing anything too short, I tend to gravitate toward maxis! This gorgeous olive colored maxi from F21 is perfect for the upcoming warmer temps and still has a little bit of sexiness to it! I can't remember if hubby picked this one up or if I did, but regardless of who, I'm glad it's in my closet! This week, I'm teaming up with Candy from The Style Cake as we showed up and are showing out with our fits! Come on in and see our finished styles and learn a little more about Candy!
Yes, I am a superfan of Justfab and I am not ashamed to admit it! Over the years, I've acquired a LOT to help stock my closet from Justfab, ranging from shoes (Alexandra was my first shoe from April 2010 that I had to exchange for Quinn because they were too small and the next size was sold out!) to handbags (the Sweetheart bag was my first bag purchase in February 2011 but returned because I didn't like the style, so Ballet was my first (REAL) bag purchase in June 2011 and I still have it to this day) and to round it out, jewelry (The Real Thing bracelet set and Heart Wired earrings were first purchased in September 2013) and apparel (Martha Back Seam leggings were the first pair of jeans purchased October 2011). There's so much in between and after including my latest purchases which you see here!
Athleisure is as a trend in fashion in which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as during work, casual or social occasions according to Wikipedia. I'm not gonna lie, up until a few years ago, I LOATHED seeing women wearing workout gear grocery shopping or running errands in general. It wasn't until I started working out where I appreciated the convenience and comfort of donning workout gear outside of the gym! Come on in and see how Ana Luiza, Michelle and I pegged Athleisure style!
How crazy is it that we have 17 days until the first official day of Summer? You guys know my love for warmer weather and longer days, so I decided to kick off a new series called Summer Style! Every Friday, I'll be sharing with you how I rock a certain garment. Super stoked to have Louisa from La Passion Voutee along for the 1st ride! Come in and see how we both styled our denim and learn a little bit more about Louisa!
