Everyday Bag
This is going to be the bag that you carry with you every day! It’s super casual, comes in a neutral color to match with any outfit, and carries your life! I prefer satchel bags as my everyday bag because they are very fashionable, and is just big enough to carry all my personal belongings!

List of Everyday Bag Suggestions
Crossbody Bags
Crossbody bags are great for when you are on the go, or if you are traveling! This is a great choice
for keeping all your items close to you so that it doesn’t get stolen! I have so many of these bags because I take a lot of Ubers and public transportation. I want to keep all of my items secure, and this is the best way to do it!

Overnight Bag
A bag like this is great for when you are just going someplace for the night or weekend. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, and will hold just enough stuff for a couple of days. It also can double as a carry on back for vacation!

Clutch
A clutch or evening bag is just the right addition to your formal wear! They can be solid, printed, or blinged out! This is supposed to small so that it doesn’t take attention from your beautiful outfit! It doesn’t hold a lot of items, so you just need the essentials!

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!

Behind the Scenes: Air

Hello, All My Darling Divas!

Happy Friday! I hope you are all ready for the weekend! The first lookbook in the element series dropped this Monday, and I hope you all enjoyed it! If you have no idea what I am talking about, click here to get the scoop!  I, of course, had to come to you with some fun behind the scenes footage! So every Friday for this month you are going to see the making of the Element series you just saw. So since you just witnessed the lookbook for Air, here is the official makings of it! I explain a lot more in the video, so let’s hop in!

Did you enjoy?? I hope so! This series hits home for me because I  love fashion, and this series definitely shows that! I hope you are all excited to see more! So as promised, I am breaking down each look and giving you ideas on what scenario to rock the look, and how to transform it to make it more wearable for everyone if the outfits are a bit too bold.

This fabulous white hot jumpsuit is one of my fave pieces in my wardrobe! I rocked this baby at my college graduation this past May, and I am so thrilled that I get to wear it again!

Scenario: 
An outfit like this can be worn for white party’s in the summer, or a celebration such as a birthday or graduation. White is timeless, and don’t be afraid to break the white after labor day rule. I promise serial mom won’t come after you! 
How to transform:
Since white is a neutral color, you can build more colors on top, or match it with other natural colors to keep it low key. You can make this white jumpsuit more grown and sexy by replacing the chain belt with a skinny black belt, swapping the pointed heels for pumps, and layering a blazer on top to elevate this look into a classy look! The pink clutch adds a pop of color and is perfect for after work drinks! Just proceed with caution because you are rocking white!
This look was honestly my fave from this lookbook! It makes me feel super sexy, and my hips definitely don’t lie in this skirt! I love anything that shows off my curves and makes me look amazing! 

Scenario:
This look is perfect for a club outing. It’s super sexy, comfortable, and will have everybody rushing to buy you a drink! 
How to Transform:
With a bold print like this skirt you want to make it with the star of your look, so I paired it with solid colors. Style it with a beautiful blue peplum, tie up flats, and a clutch for a comfortable dressy look which is perfect for attending a lounge, or an event. If you want to rock it for your weekends, pair it with an oversized black sweater, tights, and some cute booties! 
I am all about comfort, so any chance that  I get to break out my tie up flats I am a happy fashionista! Printed pants can sometimes be a bit scary, but I highly encourage everybody to have a pair in their closet. They are so fun! 
Senario:
A look like this is perfect for a night out with friends, or a date night! They are super comfortable, and great for the office fashionista if your job is buisness casaul. 
How to Transform:
Printed pants can add some spice to your work wardrobe. Pair them with a blue blouse, flats, and grab your briefcase for a chic office look that will keep you comfortable, but trendy, all day. If you have a girls night out, or a hot date, pair it with a flowy purple top for some color, a pair of black strappy heels, and an amazing black envelope clutch!
I love printed pants because they are so comfortable, and versatile! You can dress them up, or dress them down and still look amazing! I don’t really have dress down looks, but I am learning to be more casual, and this is a step in the right direction. 
Senario:
This is a cute look that you can wear to class, or to hang out with friends! Its super laid back, and my opinion a very wearable look! 
How to transform:
If you wanted to add some color you can swap ou the black sneakers for some cute pink ones, a casual oversized tee, and an amazing backpack for a trendy and street look. For my fashionistas out there joggers look great with a tee, denim jacket, and some sexy strappy heels!
 So ladies I hope you have enjoyed the behind the scenes footage, and styling lessons for the Air lookbook. Be sure to come back here on Monday for the second element, and next friday for the next behind the scenes footage! Are you following me on social media?? You should be!

I love ya lots like tater tots, and I will see you all on Monday!

                                   Chetta B. – Tinsley Dress – $98.00

Size-16

Keeping? No

You can never really go wrong with a skater dress! I love the fit and color of this dress. I automatically thought to pair this with a pattern or another pop of color. If you not as bold you can simply pair it with some black accessories and pumps. For this styling I decided to pair it with some yellow. The belt is going to bring my waist in, and yellow and pink are honestly a pretty pairing. 

 

Lysse- Nela Tunic Top $54.00

Size: XL

Keeping?: No

 

This top I couldn’t fit, but I decided to style it anyway. This a very casual top that I would just pair with a simple pair of jeans and sandals. A perfect summer casual outfit.


                                      Tua – Jessie Top – $42.00

Size-1X

Keeping- No

 This simple top can easily be a summer staple. The stripes scream summertime. For this styling I decided to pair it with white shorts and stripped espadrilles for a monochromatic look. I also paired it with some polka dot shorts and red espadrilles for some color and flare. 

Fashion to Figure – Marina Jersey Maxi Skirt – $32.90

Size- 2x

Keeping-No

 This skirt is a basic summer staple. I can be paired with a simple croptop and sandals for a casual summertime look. I paired it here with a couple different croptops and some comfortable sandals. It’s all about keeping cool and being comfortable. 

 

Madison Leigh – Claire Dress – $65.00

Size- 16

Keeping?-Yes

 This dress I just had to keep! Its the perfect fit and I love the mixed pattern. I actually going to wear this dress for an event, so I decided to pair it with some colors that I actually want to wear with it. I decided to match it with some accessories from colors that are found in the dress.
