A Quick Recap of the tips mentioned in this video

Red, Yellow, and Blue compliment polka dots so well! It’s something about this classic combo that just goes so perfect togerher!

If you are the type of girl who always likes to be casual, then definitely pair your polka dot with denim! It will give you an instant chic look that’s perfect for weekends!

Summer is right around the corner, but who said you cant keep those Pastels out to play! They give this print such a vibrant but soft pop of color!
With Lace it can be super edgy and sexy or soft and feminine. Which ever route you decide to go be sure to take polka dots with you on the ride!

OOTD Re-Do!

TGIF Darling Divas!
I am so excited about today’s video! I was deep in the NoMinusPlus Archives and noticed all these amazing fashion posts from a couple of years ago! I had this fabulous idea to re-create 4 looks that are my favorite! So enough of the talk lets get into the video!!

How fun was that blast from the past! I didn’t notice until after the video that all the looks were from 2012, so I must have been pretty stylish that year! (lol) It was super fun for me to recreate each look and see how my style has evolved and stayed the same! 
Look 1 Bleach and Distressed
Click here to check out the original blog post
Even though I almost killed myself making these jeans, I just love how creative and innovative I used to be! I wanted a pair of distressed and bleached jeans, but at the time couldn’t afford them, so I transformed an old pair into the ones I wanted! That just goes to show you that I will risk it all for fashion! Even though I have a couple more coins in the bank now, I still have been known to bust out a D.I.Y. project every now and again! 
Look 2 Cheetahlicous! 
Click here to check out the original blog post 
As you can see this dress still hits me in the same place! It’s so interesting how back in the day I could care less, but now I’m like umm I need something under this! The ripped leggings under it are so me at this moment, but I love how the aesthetic of this look is still the same! 
Look 1 Aztec Inspired
Click here to check out original blog post
Although I no longer have this fabulous skirt, I still think this look is pretty close! I must have really loved being bold with my hemlines cause honey that’s a short skirt! If I do skirts now, I prefer them right above the knee like you see in the picture on the right. Funny how times change! 
Look 4 Lazy Turban
Click here to check out the original blog post! 
This look is personal one of my all time favorite looks! I love this look because is so laid-back but still glam! I would still totally wear this look exactly the same today! Just still wish I had those awesome peter pan boots! 
I hope you ladies have enjoyed this trip down memory lane! If you have any throwback OOTD’s share them down below! Be sure to also include if you would wear them the exact same, or switch it up differently! Although this wraps up our blog post for the week remember that 2 new ones are coming next week, and and you can follow me on all my social media if you want to keep up with me! The links are at the top of the page! I love you lots like tater tots, I hope you have a safe and amazing Memorial Day weekend, and I will see you all next Wednesday!

Pencil Skirt Pusher

Hello All My Darling Divas,

Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I am so excited for the weekend! Before you go off to do all your fabulous activities, I wanted to stop up here to talk about my latest obsession: pencil skirts! They come in all different types, all different colors, and today I will proving to you why you need a pencil skirt in your wardrobe! So sit back, enjoy the video, and be prepared to be convinced why you need once in your life!

Did you enjoy the video? Are you running out to get a pencil skirt yet? If this essential piece is not in your closet yet, I hope I have convinced you why you need a couple in your life! Let’s recap what you saw in the video!

Types of Pencil Skirts
Peplum Pencil Skirt
This style is great for hourglass figures, or for ladies who loveee to show off and define their waist. I personally am one of those ladies, so I always love when I get the chance to wear this skirt! It looks great with a top tucked in to show off the peplum design!

Stretch

If you have a little more lovin’ going on in your tummy area, pick a pencil skirt that has some stretch! Fabrics such a cotton, ponte, and jersey are great fabrics that are comfortable and flattering on the tummy!

Midi
The midi length pencil skirt is great for if you don’t want to show as much leg and are a bit conservative,  or/and if you are a tall lady such as myself! It will make your legs look amazing, and you can adjust how short or long you want it! Just wear it just above your waist to make it longer, or wear it high waisted to make it shorter.
 


The Looks
Night Out
 Top, Skirt, and belt from Fashion to Figure
I would pair this look with pumps or pencil flats for a night out with my girls!
Casual
Jacket: Rachel Roy ( Via Dia&Co)
Top- Amazon
Skirt- Fashion to Figure ( Via Dia&Co)
 100% of my life is casual, so I would wear this to work( which is a casual setting), or on weekends with friends!

 Work

Blazer-Target
Top-Torrid
Skirt-LoveLianca
 If your job is business casual, then this look is great for you! Pair it with flats or sensible heels!
So have I done it? Have I made you want a pencil skirt?? I hope I have! Try this very versatile piece of clothing this year if you have always been too afraid to try it! Let’s push those boundaries in 2017! Are you following me on social media? You should be because I am planning on being a lot more active on the blog’s IG page! Follow today by checking out my social media handles which are linked at the top of the page! Make sure to bring your booty right back here on Monday for another week of blog post!

Fashion Trends I loved in High School

Hello, All My Darling Divas!

Welcome to another week here on the blog! I hope that you had an amazing Thanksgiving, and spent lots of time eating and loving on your family and friends! I am back today with your Monday blog post! Today we are going back in time. I am going to sharing with you some of my favorite trends from High School. Although it wasn’t that long ago that I graduated from High School( S/O to the Class of 2010), but my style has definitely evolved since then! So let’s get into this flashback video!

Did you enjoy?? I hope so! What year did you graduate High School, and what were your fave fashions to wear? Comment them down below!

Trend Then Printed Leggings 
So I wasn’t able to find a picture of me rocking my leggings from back in the day, but I was able to find two of my fave pairs of leggings from back in the day! I can’t tell you guys how much I loved wearing these! I actually was pretty sad the day I had to throw them out. 
Update: I was able to find a picture of me wearing the leggings! 
Trend Now Printed Pants 
I have since then traded my printed leggings for printed pants! They are a fun way to spice up any look, and I honestly feel like a true Diva whenever I wear them! You have seen me rock printed pants here on the blog, and you will continue to see them here!
Trend Then Accessories Overload
 I loveedd accessories so much back in high school I was always wearing some type of oversized glasses, a billion bracelets, or big earrings. My outfit wouldn’t be complete without at least three accessories, and my 16yr old self would be so upset with me because I barely wear any at all! 

 Trend Now Simple Jewelry
Every once in awhile I break out my jewelry. This may seem like a lot, but this is not as much as I used to wear! I wouldn’t wear all of this on the same day, but I would probably pick one out of these two styles to add some bling to my look! 
Trend Then Major Layering
First of all, let’s talk about how much of a throwback this picture is first of all! Taking photos like this were so popular back in the day! I am located on the top right and as you can see my layering game is strong! My best friend is to the left of me, and her outfit is also another look that I used to rock! Layering short sleeved shirts, over long sleeved ones was everything! 
Trend Now Simple Layering
 All of these outfits are the product of layering! Simple layering can come together to create the best outfits. I did a whole blog post on layering last year. You can click here to check it out if you want! I pretty much use layering now to create illusions of one whole outfit. Before you could clearly see I was layering, but now the way I layer you can’t tell!

 Trend Then: Vest Go with Everything
It was very common that I would be wearing a vest with my outfit. I swore up and down that they went with everything! They kinda do, b
ut then again they don’t 

Trend Now- A Vest Every Once In a While 
I don’t really wear a lot of vests now, but if I do I usually go for a longer one. It fits my shape well, and they add drama to my look. I don’t add then to all my looks like back in the day, but everyone once in a while, for me, is ok! 

 So, ladies, that’s all for today’s blog post! I hope you have enjoyed going down this trip to memory lane with me! Are you following me on social media yet? You should be! Stay connected with me and the blog by clicking the links above! Be sure to check back here Friday at 5 for your next blogpost! I love you lots like tater tots, and I will see you on Friday!

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Hello, All My Darling Divas!
Welcome to another week here on the blog! With turkey day coming up I decided to put together this quick little video giving you some Thanksgiving outfit ideas. I hope they will give you some inspiration on what to wear on Gobble Day! Let’s get into the video!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope so! Which look do you see yourself wearing for Thanksgiving? Comment down below! Let’s get into the breakdown for each look!

Pass the Gravy
 Top: Junarose
Denim Shirt: Fashion to Figure 
Leggings- Lysse ( Via Dia&Co)
Sorry that this picture is so terrible! I actually forgot to take a picture of this look, so I had to grab a snapshot from the video. (Terrible I know) But this look is perfect for your casual dinner table. It’s comfortable, easy to move in! If leggings aren’t, you can swap them out for jeans!
Formal With The Fam 
Top: Burlington Coat Factory
Cardigan: Forever21
Pants: Old Navy 
 This look is great formal look for dinner. It’s a great balance between formal and casual. The pop of print makes you fashion forward but still comfortable. If printed pants aren’t your thing, you can always swap them out for a solid colored pant.
Hostess With The Mostess
Dress: Target 
A form fitting bodycon dress is a great choice for meeing your boo’s family! If you pick one that is made of a jersey material, then it will be easy to move in. If you pick a dress that is a bit too short, you can always add leggings and boots with it to make it more appropriate. If body con dresses aren’t your thing, you can go with another style of dress that is similar, or you can wear an outfit like the Formal with the Fam look! 
Hostess with the Mostess
Top: Fashion to Figure (Via Dia.Co)
 Skirt: Eloquii ( Via Dia.Co)
This look just screams welcome to my home! After you get done prepping your home to welcome to your Thanksgiving guest, you have to also get ready! Grab a skirt and a blouse to get ready in a flash! This bright, vibrant outfit welcomes people into your home, and you are going to look fabulous! If skirts aren’t your thing, then swap it out for pants! 
So ladies I hope that this video has inspired you and helped you out with your Thanksgiving outfits! The outfits you see here won’t be on Pinterest, but I will be putting together four different outfit ideas based off the looks you see here. If you’re interested in that, then click here to check it out! Happy Thanksgiving Darling Divas! I am truly thankful for you all, and I hope you have a wonderful holiday! I love you lots like tater tots, and I will see you all on Friday with a new blogpost!
