The new year is right around the corner and it is time to start hunting for those evening outfits. I have created some outfit options from the DailyLook website using their Little Black Dresses options as my inspiration. One thing I love about bringing in the new year is making resolutions to be the best version of yourself that you can be. So why not start with a great new outfit? New Years Eve (NYE) does not always mean you have to wear sparkles and sequins. Personally, I love slim fitted simple and sexy dresses that I can dress up with flashy accessories. I have linked each item with the DailyLook.com link beside the product so that you can be directed to the exact item.
I am absolutely obsessed with this T-Strap Black Open Back Dress from DailyLook.com. This option is slim fitting but sexy enough to bring in the new year. I paired this intriguing red Feather Jacket from DailyLook.com to add some color and warmth to the look. The clutch and heels can also be found on DailyLook.com. I decided not to pair jewelry with this outfit because I personally like to be more simplistic. Although if you like more accessories, a nice cocktail ring or a pair of stud earrings would also pull the outfit together.
For the second look I chose this Black Bodycon Dress from DailyLook.com. This dress is so different and will definitely stand out on NYE. Not only does it accentuate your curves but it also shows enough leg to keep the look desirable. I am such a fan of luscious faux fur jackets and this Faux Fur from DailyLook.com is really a standout. Throwing a faux fur coat on with any outfit can instantly make your look glamorous and this coat does just that. I decided to add a pair of chandelier earrings from DailyLook.com and sequin high heels from DailyLook.com to pull together this look giving it a little extra glam. For the final accessory, I chose to add a sparkly clutch from DailyLook.com. This outfit adds the perfect amount of sexy to your NYE.
I found that DailyLook.com offers several options to meet each persons individual style. There are so many diverse options that this website offers which makes it a lot more fun to shop. I personally like to stick to a sexy simple look but add glamorous accessories to play up my outfit. I hope that you find DailyLook.com just as helpful as I did while planning your NYE outfit. Please know that I would never promote anything that I do not personally love myself. Thanks for reading and please leave me any feedback that you may have.
Hope you all have a safe and happy New Years!

I finally found a great pair of knee high gladiator sandals.. and guess what! They were only $24.99 from Off Broadway. I decided to go with gold because in the summer I like to get a little bit of a tan and I feel like they just accent everything so much better. I’ve literally worn these sandals like 10 times and I just bought them a week ago. They are also comfortable too. I will say, it may be harder for some people to find the right sizes in these because everyone’s calf size is different. Luckily, these fit me just fine. The floral crop top I am wearing is from Forever 21 and I think it cost me around $9.00. My high waist shorts are from Urban Outfitters and my pale pink kimono is by Julies Boutique which I purchased for $25.00. I really love how these sandals just pulled this outfit together. Please let me know what you think in the comments. Thanks again for viewing!

So I have just partnered up with Julie’s Boutique as a stylist and intern. Julie’s Boutique is located in the North Carolina area. They have several locations including Gastonia, up town Charlotte, Park Road Shopping Center, and Huntersville. I suggest you check them out if you live near the Charlotte area. Julie’s also owns a sister store called Ivy and Leo which also has many locations such as Columbia SC, Myrtle Beach SC, South Park NC, Wilmington NC, and Raleigh NC.
Julie’s offers super cute clothing options for great prices. The unique thing about this store is that they are a boutique so they offer unique pieces that chain stores are not able to accommodate and the price of their clothing is beyond affordable! I have been shopping at Julie’s as long as I can remember (it’s been around for about 40 years) and it is definitely a shop that I recommend. I would never advertise or talk up a company that I do not believe in myself.
Ivy and Leo (the sister store) also offers a great amount of cute affordable clothing. This cute shop has been taking over all across Charlotte and has definitely made a name for itself. If you are ever visiting the Charlotte area, definitely consider stopping into one of the locations that I listed above.
I will link below the online stores for both of the companies. Please also note that with any type of specialty boutique the websites are not nearly as stocked as the actual store is. Since I am now interning for the company, I will be taking many pictures for my blog and my other social media accounts. I plan to be able to upload pictures of outfits that I style from the clothing in the stores and give you my honest feedback. I hope that you enjoy this post and thank you for viewing! Please leave comments below or feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hello again! Sorry for the delayed post. I thought I was going to have more time to post while I was on vacation but it turns out I did not have hardly any time at all. I just returned from visiting my boyfriend (he lives in Georgia) and a lovely beach trip that we took together. I captured some photos throughout the trip of what I wore. Above are a pair of sandals that I am in love with this summer. I have literally worn them for like two weeks straight. I purchased these shoes from Versona Accessories for only $15.00. I will link everything below. If you are wondering the brand of these shoes they are by a company called Bamboo who makes super affordable but stylish shoes. I think I’ve actually posted another pair of shoes by the same brand before. Anyway, they have a variety of colors and they are so comfortable. I have a hard time trying to wear heels and wedges all of the time so to keep my life realistic I like to purchase comfortable shoes that are easy to walk in. These were definitely my must have shoes for my beach trip!
I also purchased some new swimsuits for my trip as well. I decided to venture out of my comfort zone this season and try some new swim suit styles.
I bought this top from Forever21 for $10.00. I actually bought this one on sale so I am not sure if they have this same style in stock anymore. I’m sure there are others that are similar. This top was really fun to wear except the only problem with this top is that it does not give much support. My sunglasses are from Forever21 as well.
Another amazing piece that I bought from one of my favorite stores. The top is from Victoria’s Secret along with the bottoms. I am also wearing the same sandals as shown above (Bamboo). The top cost me around $35.00 with a discount I had received and the bottoms were $18.00 in stores.
Here is a shot from behind of the bottoms purchased from Victoria’s Secret. Now I know that these do not appeal to everyone but I am really loving this style of bathing suit bottoms at the moment. They definitely keep the booty looking nice, that is for sure… but hey, you are only young once and if you work hard to get yourself in shape, why not show it off!
Saving the best for last! I am OBSESSED with this bathing suit top. I purchased this from Amazon for only $16.00! I typed in Victoria’s Secret swim suits to search for a new top to wear and came across this one. However, this is not by Victoria’s Secret. This is just a similar style to the current one that they have out now. Victoria’s Secret can be a little pricey on swim suits sometimes so I am glad I came across this beauty. I am wearing the same bottoms as posted above. My cover up is from Forever21.
I had such a great time and cannot wait for my next beach trip. I just want it to be summer all year long! I hope that everyone is having a great week and I appreciate all of the feedback I have received so far. Thank you for viewing!

So this is much different compared to my usual posts. A good friend of mine owns a clothing company called Apex Apparel. Apex is based in Charlotte, North Carolina (where I am from). These pictures are just a few of the unedited shots from behind the scenes at the shoot. I encourage you to check out his brand. Apex is becoming quite a name here in Charlotte. I would describe his company as a lifestyle brand with a mix of street wear. Apex offers many opportunities for discounts and other sales on their website. I have modeled for his company now for two years off and on and it is only getting better. Street wear is not something that I usually go for but it is always good to change up your style every once in a while. Plus, who doesn’t love an awesome t-shirt?! Definitely check out the Apex website for many other great opportunities.
Please let me know if you like the change up in posts and if you would like to see the actual photos from the shoot. Thanks for viewing

As summer is approaching, I find myself more and more excited for the endless amounts of outfits I can put together for nights out in the warm weather. Above, I am wearing a sheer top in turquoise from Target that I bought for only $15.00 and I paired a black lace bra underneath to give it a little more edge. My leather shorts are from Bebe and I think they cost me about $35.00 (on sale). The shoes that I am wearing are from Charlotte Russe and they have a snakeskin print on them that is so beautiful. They are actually very comfortable too. I want to purchase them in more colors and I know that Charlotte Russe carries them in a black color too (those would be fun to pair with outfits). Anyway, I hope that you are all having a wonderful mothers day and if not that then just a wonderful day in general Please let me know what you think in the comments! I love feedback! Thanks for visiting.

One of my favorite things to wear in the summer time is loose fitting clothes or crop tops. I love skirts because they are easy and comfortable. Like this skater skirt above, for instance, that I purchased from Forever21 for $12.00 which is simple, flowy and comfortable all in one. The crop top that I paired with the skirt is from Forever 21 as well. I think the top was around $11.00. Nothing like finding two budget friendly pieces and creating an outfit out of them! The shoes that I am wearing are by the brand called Bamboo which I purchased from a boutique in New Orleans called Frock Candy. The pink bow wedges cost me around $15.00. This outfit will definitely be in my suitcase for a trip to the beach soon! I plan on wearing it to a nice lunch or out shopping. Please comment if you have any questions. I love feedback! Thanks for viewing.

My obsession with pleather shorts will never end. I feel like they are so easy to dress up or down and can make any outfit look stylish. I paired this look with a retro off the shoulder top and a pop of color on my lips. The lipstick that I am wearing is by Mac and it is called Candy Yum Yum. If you are further interested in my lip color you can check out the beauty page where I listed some other great pink colors for summer. I am also loving the ankle strap heels and I am seeing them everywhere. They are so classy and timeless. Thanks for visiting
