Floral tulle lace dress + Straw Clutch





Hi everyone, happy Friday 😀 I hope the week has been going great for you. This is a very quick post here showing this tulle dress I wore for Mother's Day this year and also to my friend's 40th birthday celebration a couple of weeks ago. I wore a similar dress last year to a different birthday party and I blogged about it here This dress here along with the blue color piece are the only tulle dresses I own. Remember when tulle skirts and dresses was a huge trend in 2015 and 2016? I loved the trend so much and looked out for a grown-up way to wear it since it was more popular with the millennial and twenty-somethings 😂 I got my wish in this dress; very chic and fun in my opinion. I accessorized the dress with a straw clutch from J. Crew Factory which has since sold out and this lovely pair of wine colored sandals from Go Jane. The sandals are so comfy, chic and affordable that I purchased them in the champagne and purple color. What plans do you have for the weekend? 'like I mentioned in my previous post, Ill be busy organizing my fall and winter closet for myself and other members of my family. Thank you so much for stopping by here; have a blessed weekend.

Plaid Dress + Satin Slides



                                           

Happy Thursday Beauties; I hope the weather is beautiful wherever you are because it's been raining steady for over two days in my neck of the woods. The forecast says the rain would end tomorrow and behind the rain comes low temperatures. This weekend the temperature is going to dip to the 40s and that's cold even for this early in fall. This weekend is also the official start of fall so, I can say that fall is definitely here now. It's time to get out all the outer wears; sweaters, jackets, boots, scarves, gloves...you name it 😌 Although I'm excited for fall fashion, I'm not too excited about all the work I have to do in re-organizing my closet. If you do not see any new post on here in the next few days, just know that I am busy somewhere in my closet 😂

Fall bag trend: The Crochet Bag






The Bag is the number one lady accessory that has evolved a lot over the years. There are so many designs and creations of it that it is hard to keep up sometimes. In previous years, the popular bag designs were the purse, the tote, the handbag and a few other variations. These days, we have the bucket bags, the saddle bags, the cross body bags, the straw bags, basket bags, belt bags...just to name a few. All kinds of women bags are now in the mainstream of fashion. This fall, the straw bag would still be a huge trend in all its variations but mostly in the bucket form and in dark hues as well. However, the bag that is set to take over the straw bag for fall is the "Crochet bag." This is the handwoven crochet or knitted style of  bags. The famous bag designer Cult Gaia who designed the popular summer Ark bag has designed this beautiful woven master piece here. There are so many variations of the crochet bag in the store as has been over the last seasons; it is just that they will become more popular this fall in my humble prediction. Etsy also has a wide selection of crochet bags from very talented artisans. Styling these bags would be very easy as they go with knits and warm sweaters and clothing that is already associated with the fall season. Happy styling.

Big dots, small dots + Bermuda Shorts






Hi Friends, happy Tuesday; this is a quick post here showing one of the polka dots outfits I wore during the summer. This is a very casual look and it is a mix of old and new items from my closet. The polka dots blouse is an old purchase from T. J. Maxx and the bermuda shorts is an old closet staple. I mixed the old items with my new pair of white kitten mules from Target and this pvc bucket bag from Shein. White shoes are now the new neutrals and white mules worn in the summer would transition to white ankle boots in the fall and winter. This big and small polka dots on this blouse that look like some kind of splatter is a twist on the polka dots trend. Again, I look forward to wearing this trend into fall and I'm loving this sweater here. I wish you a blessed rest of the week and thanks so much for stopping by here.
