Winter Preview Fashion

Hello,

I’ve been busy with Luke and Queen Styles Boutique! This year’s pop-up shops are different. I need to stop and pump for Luke. Which means I need coverage while I’m away. I’m grateful to have great friends and family who are helping me during this new season. Not to mention a husband who delights in encouraging me.

Here are a few looks from this month. All looks have pieces from Queen Styles

Baby Shower Fun!

How to: Wear Overalls

Hello!

I’ve been busy with Queen Styles Boutique and getting everything ready for when our baby boy arrives. I needed a break! A time to just refocus and recharge my batteries. So we went to a baseball game and tried out a new restaurant. That seems to always do the trick. I’ve always loved overalls because they bring me back to my childhood. I probably had a pair in just about everything color! So this seemed like the perfect time to wear them. I really do believe that what we wear can alter our moods. Our clothing can boost our moods and make us feel different when we need it.

I decided to be really casual and paired my overalls with a stripped shirt and comfy shoes. You can wear overalls with tank tops or a basic tee. You can pair them with sneakers, sandals or a cute pair of wedges.

Celebrating the Small Stuff

Hello,

I hope you all are doing well. This past weekend I went to a wedding that my husband was in. It’s a great thing when you witness family and friends gathering to celebrate something positive. I had to wonder, how many people (including myself) make it a habit to celebrate the “smaller” events with loved ones? Don’t get me wrong. Of course a wedding is an occasion that should be celebrated but have you celebrated the “smaller” events recently? If you just rocked a test after studying really hard, celebrate. Maybe you’ve been trying to make a habit of remaining positive in the midst of adversity, celebrate that. When you do celebrate, make sure your family and friends are there to bask in your victory. Here’s to all of us celebrating the “small” stuff.

How to: Save on Winter Fashion

Hello,

One of the keys to saving on winter clothes is knowing when to shop for winter clothes. Right now, most stores are getting ready for spring and summer, which means they’re marking down the prices on their winter items. What does that mean for you and me? It means we have a great chance to save money. Queen Styles Boutique is having a winter sale that starts today. Here are some of the items you can save on:

On selected items, you’ll find up to 40% off. The sale lasts for a week. It’s a great time to shop and save!

Shopping Small

Hello!

I hope this post finds you well. I’ve been getting ready for Shop Small Saturday. American Express annually holds this event to shine light on small businesses. It was truly an amazing experience! Running Queen Styles Boutique has opened my eyes to the importance of supporting and investing local businesses. Before owning Queen Styles Boutique, it didn’t occur to me that when you and I make the decision to shop in local businesses, we are choosing to invest in our communities. When we shop in local businesses, we are validating dreams. Here’s a picture from yesterday:

You Serve a Greater Purpose 

Hello!

   Did you get a chance to see the solar eclipse yesterday? If you were here in the states, it was a spectacular event. If you didn’t, NASA has some great photos on their website. I’m not sure about you, but when I was watching the eclipse, I felt a lot of worry leave my mind. It was so easy to just focus on what was happening in that moment and realize that I was apart of something greater. The solar eclipse put things into perspective for me. We face a lot of distractions on a daily basis(our jobs, family, finances, politics, and etc) it’s easy to forget that we are apart of a bigger picture. I believe that every single organism serves a purpose, that includes you and me. I’m not sure what you’re facing but always remember that you are here for a reason and serve a greater purpose. 

Don’t forget to check out my online boutique. I’m launching some more fall merchandise next week!

What Inspires You?

Hello!

    I just got back from attending a Bachelorette party in Miami and had an awesome time. I had forgotten how much I miss living in an environment that is so rich with culture. In Miami, the culture is in the food, music, and the way people dress, and talk. I started to realize how inspired I felt and wondered when was the last time I felt that inspired. I really missed having that inspiration. Before I started to go down that negative path of thinking, I started to think about the resources I have now that could inspire me. There are so many times we are waiting for a place or someone to inspire us but we have to realize that instead of waiting, we have the power to inspire ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, I think drawing inspiration from people and places is very important but there are so many other things we can be inspired by. It could be the sunset, sunrise, your loved ones or yourself. Together, lets make a habit of taking control over what inspires us. Feel free to tell me something’s that inspire you in the comments.

We All Have Passions to Follow

Hello,

     I’m going to be a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista.com this summer. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to write articles and share my perspective on fashion. I’ve always enjoyed writing about fashion. Whether I’m giving fashion advice or just sharing what inspired my outfit, it’s always been something I am passionate about. Maybe someone out there has a passion but is feeling discouraged. Maybe you feel like your dream isn’t going to come true. Well, if you would’ve told me a year ago that I would be writing on a platform such as CollegeFashionista.com I wouldn’t have believed you. Hard work pays off. Don’t give up! Stay persistent and continually perfect your craft. Your time is coming.

    My first post will be later this month and I will keep you posted. I photographed my bio pictures today. Here are the details on what I wore:

Shirt: WhoWhatWear for Target

Shorts: H&M

Sandals: Old Navy

Hat: Forever21
