Chapter 5: May Plan and Goals

The time is literally flying by. Sheesh I am trying to hold on to all my edges. LOL  This time around last year I was dreading May because I had to get my wisdom teeth extraction. Well now I got so much to look forward to this month. The month of April was a total roller coaster. It was up and down, but I ended up right where I needed to be.  God really was working on me overtime,  and that I am so humble and grateful for.  Yes ladies, let get this month started on the right foot. Fashion Note I don’t have a lot of new trends, fashion alerts to post this month. As a Detroiter, we are still stuck in that in between weather. Not really knowing what to do, or how to be stylish when the weather is bipolar. One minute it is super cold, then not so warm, or then it too hot to handle. LOL  If you want to see a post on how to style yourself during the in between seasons, let me know in the comment section below. FASHION REPORT: According to May’s issue of InStyle Magazine a few style trends and …

Yellow is my ish.  It captures everyone’s attention…. and if you know me then you know I love little attention. Yellow is luminous and it loves my complexion. I always get a lot of compliments when I wear yellow. “Yellow looks so good on you.” So, this yellow wrap dress from Target was put in my cart with the upmost quickness!  Yes, this dress is from brand called, A New Day that exclusively sold at Target.  The brand focus it attention on everyday wear.

A few weeks ago, I came across this summer infused wrap dress from A New Day.  The yellow hue alone had …

Taste of Summer| Hawaiian Shirt from Not Sorry Apparel

This shirt was given in collaboration with Not Sorry Apparel. All opinions are my own. Festival season is in full swing. If I was at Coachella right now I would be wearing this Hawaiian shirt, representing my city, and being unapologetic about. I love to look at all the fun outfits and colorful look that are inspired from Coachella and all the other festivals to come. Now when I initially went to the Not Sorry Apparel’s shop, a festival inspired look was not on my mind. I was clueless… I had not the slightest idea on what I wanted to do. So I started flipping through the racks and there it was.  I stop right at this Hawaiian, tropical print shirt. The light went off in my head and my inspirational juices started to flow. PARADISE! “Find paradise wherever I go” -Unknown So with this look  I decided to skip over spring and jumping straight into to warm summer vibes. This over sized Hawaiian shirt from Not Sorry Apparel is just want I need to put me back in my fun-loving spirit.  Definitely having a tropical state of mind!! Yo So this weekend my mom and I went downtown to …

For the Love of Gold featuring Trinkets and Such

This post was done in collaboration with Trinkets and Such – but trust, all opinions are my own. #trinketsandsuch™ #sponsored Do you love jewelry? Lately, I have had my eyes focused on jewelry and accessories. Those little dainty pieces alone can add so much class and flavor to a look.  Did you know I am a big fan of gold jewelry?!  I was exposed to gold jewelry at a young age. I was once allergic to costume jewelry so the only thing I could wear was 14kt gold. Since then I have grown out of my allergy and I can wear whatever I want. However, my love of gold jewelry never went anywhere.  It increased over the years because the selection has expanded.  Anklets, bracelets, earrings, and chains. So I almost lost my mind when I was given a chance to collaborate with Trinkets and Such, that has so many beautiful GOLD pieces and more that I admire. Trinkets and Such is a gift shop for taste makers based in the city of Detroit! Curated by Daisha, a Detroit native, prides her brand on giving shoppers quality collections, and effortless essentials. What really make them stand out from the rest …

OOTD| Neutral Denim Set x Tie Dye Shirt |Missguided

Finally, I got a chance to show off  my legs with a denim mini skirt and a matching cropped jacket from Missguided. Spring has sprung in the city and I do not know how to act.  The forecast hit the city with 68 degrees and sunny weather. The sun definitely boosted my energy and put me in a good mood all weekend. I finally felt comfortable to stripped off some of my layers and hit the city. If you know anything about Michigan weather, it can be very wishy-washy during the transitional season. When we get beautiful weather we hit the streets and have a good time. FashionLayn Outfit Deets… So one day I was at my desk and I was watching a video of Youtuber having a try on haul of all the clothing she bought from Missguided. Well I felt compel to check it out myself and they also had a plus size section. Missguided is online based retailer, located in the United Kingdom. Price points ranging from $10-$70 dollars. I was finishing up on website when I came across this super cute cream denim set both pieces featuring silver metal details and contrast stitching. I just love …

Chapter 4: April Plan and Goals

Seriously, the month of March left me completely zapped out. I was working crazy hours at work. Like full on 12 hours days of work. On top of that finding time to take pictures. Post content. Doing so many things at once will have anyone completely drained. Also to mention I got into a minor car accident. Now this post was supposed to go up yesterday but my feelings were still hurt from the accident I had.  I was just not feeling it and it was so important for me to reflect and just relax. Well the March Madness contest at work is over and now I can get a bit of my “normal” back. My head is back in the game and I ready to tackle April on the second day. Fashion Note No new fashion trends to report this month. However, I am came across an interesting article in April’s issue of InStyle Magazine. It is titled “Does My Closet Make Me Look Fat?” by Eric Wilson. Now the title alone is interesting to me. I was looking at my closet yesterday and I came to the conclusion that I need to go on a “shopping diet”. The …

OOTD | How To Wear Neon Colors?

Over the weekend I decided to make a statement by exploring my fun side using neon colors. According to the NYFW and varies magazines, neon colors are on trend for spring 2019.  I was so excited to hear that neons were making a comeback. As a fashion blogger is was super important to me to play around with this trend. So I took to the street of Downtown Detroit and strut my stuff.  Bright bold orange was certainly my muse this weekend. Can you tell a sis was feeling herself ? Orange is the happiest color!  -Frank Sinatra Now before you go “the brighter the better” there is a few questions you need to ask yourself before tackling neon.  Ask yourself how big you want to go? Are you a more subtle or bold? Are you a risk taker when it comes to fashion? Let me tell you I am more of a “subtle sis” when it comes to neons. Less is more.  When I wear clothes I like to make a statement however I don’t want to over do it.  I like for my outfit to be versatile. I want to be able to wear this wherever. So I …
