The Monochromatic Option for Valentines Day

What are you wearing for Valentines Day?  Valentines is 2 days away, lol you have some time to get on board ladies.  If you know me I am keeping this look budget friendly for the girls that are conscious about their coins. So I have this cute inexpensive monochromatic look.   When it comes to creating a “one color” look, simply keep to one color and add different textures, and gradients. I decided on blush pink, one of my favorite colors for the season. To be honest, I have been quite obsessed with monochromatic fashion. So I decided to experiment with it this time around. My look is clean, casual, chic, but still bringing a little wow-factor to the table. Guaranteed it will have your love interest trying to shoot their shot.. So if you want the tea on how I put together this  look… keep reading. FashionLayn’s Outfit Deets… I decided to branch outside of my quirky street theme and come with a monochromatic, feminine look. Creating a outfit based on one color can be a bit boring, to some. If you incorporate the right elements, and understand a bit of depth and dimension, I guarantee you will pull …

Event Recap: Forever 21 Collaboration X Girls Inc

Last Wednesday, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Forever 21 at the Somerset Collection Mall to help with a really cool charity event.  Forever 21 partnered up with Girls Inc, a non-profit organization that helps underprivileged girls through different programming. Any PINK item that the customer purchases, Forever 21 donate $1 to the organization. On top of shopping for cause, F21 was also providing  beauty touch ups, F21 $10 gift cards for the first 25 attendees, and $100 gift card raffles, and styling tips for you know who, ME and so many other great influencers. This event was so much fun! I had a good time networking with other influencers and helping the customer navigate through their items. On Wednesday We Wear Pink!! I would not be me if I did not tell you all how excited I was when I got the email to work with Forever 21.  As a budget friendly blogger I take pride in how I look. I also feel like you do not have to break the bank to look good in what you where. Before I got in fashion hard, Forever 21 was my place to keep me on trend and fashionable without …

70’s Inspired Look From Forever 21

Lately what has been on trend are things from the 70’s have been showing up in the stores. In the “Its October” post I was telling y’all that in Forever 21 they had a big section dedicated to 70’s prints, and style.  Bell Bottoms, Patches, Geometric prints, and corduroy, etc. I think 70’s were super unique and powerful time in our history. FashionLayn Outfit Deets… Lets get right into the fashion details. In this weeks outfit I am giving y’all a bit of the 70’s in this look.  The mini skirt with the zip panel, a cozy mustard sweater with thigh high boots. Instead of going for the A-line skirt I decided to show up my curves this look a little update and wear a skirt that is more form-fitting. Both pieces I am featuring in this picture both come from Forever 21.  This mini skirt is super cute for the fall months. You can pair this with colorful stocking and booties or over the knee boots like I did.  The mini skirt is corduroy texture skirt with a front zipper with a pull ring. Definitely giving me 70’s vibes. This mini skirt is true to size and fits nicely on any …

Of course I can not leave y’all hanging.

Now this jacket is on the smaller side of the spectrum. Anyway …

Nailed the Summer Trend.. Button Down Dress from Forever21

Man this heat wave this week … OMG it was super hot! When it is hot like this outside I do not want any extra clothes making me even more hot. You know that irritating sticky feel you get, or that feeling you feel dirty as soon as you step outside. Yeah that kinda of hot.  Less clothes… gotta pull out a sun dress.  With that being said I found a cute little button down sundress.  I guess you can say I am trying to knock some of the last few trends of the summer before we get fully geared up for fall attire in the store. The heat index is somewhere between OMG and WTH  Any who I got this striped button down dress from Forever21.  The shell of the dress is made out of cotton with full rayon lining,  so I believe the material will help keep you cool. This dress is definitely outside my comfort zone. If you know me, I am body con dress lover. I love anything that hugs my curves. So having a dress that does not  hug me was different, but in a good way.  I normally do not do dresses like this …

My Body Image Gives Me The Blues Sometimes! How to deal ?

Dealing with body struggles is a tough thing to swallow. It something that everybody has dealt with throughout or some point of their lives. I can really be tough on my body at times. Wishing my stomach was flatter, I wish I didn’t have dimples on my butt, or stretch marks. Wishing my skin was more clearer or my teeth brighter.  All those things that keep me obsessing. Here come the school stories. I was called “butter ball” in middle school. Also I was the thick girl in high school. Yeah some guys actually called me big mama! Really ! You already know that having meat on your bones was rarely celebrate or in style.  Then I had a bad love triangle thing in college… all the way wrong! So yes the anxiety set in and your trying to do anything and everything to fit in what the world says is normal. Little do you know your now on the road of body image struggles. Over time I learn to love my body but I don’t love it all time. I can be somewhat critical of myself, and that really gives me the blues something.  How do I deal with …
