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

Versatile Black Floral Shorts

Hello!

Our first date night since baby Luke was great. Questions like: “was he thinking about us?” and “what was he doing?” crossed my mind. Granted, he was with my mother so there wasn’t a need to worry but I had never been away from him. My husband and I went to one of our favorite burger spots and listened to live music. It was a short outing but needed! If you’re a new mom or know new parents I highly suggest investing in date night or offering to watch their little one so they can enjoy a night out.

It’s close to fall but the humid Carolina summer isn’t showing signs of letting up. I wanted to be very comfortable but of course fashionable. I love these black shorts from Queen Styles Boutique. They’re perfect for all seasons. During the warm month I can wear them with just about any style shirt for a cute look and I can’t wait to pair them with a pair of tights when the weather cools down. For date night, I paired them with a white t-shirt and sandals.

How to: Shop a Summer Sale

Hello,

It’s that time of year for: Summer Sale’s. Stores are getting ready for their fall inventory and one of the ways to do that is to have a sale. When you’re about to shop a Summer Sale, do your research. Are all items on sale? Is the sale happening in waves or all at once? Research the discounts. Do you see the term “up to” or do you have to spend a certain amount to qualify for a discount? The answers to these questions can make a huge difference in the amount of money you spend. Queen Styles Boutique is having a Summer Sale right now. Here’s what you can expect: 25% off at checkout….on everything. That’s right, everything. Here are a few of their pieces:

This Pink Ruffled Dress

Curvy Queens Off-the-Shoulder Top

Champagne Metallic Skirt

Summer Sale’s can be fun so enjoy them!

Black and White Floral Pants

Hello!

It’s hard to believe that our baby boy will be here in less than 4 weeks! We’re so excited to meet him. We’re busy making sure everything is ready for him and I’m busy trying to stay cool and comfortable. I’ve been sticking to light fabrics as best as I can. Here’s a look I out together recently. It’s pretty casual but I can’t wait to dress these pants up with a cute pair of heels or wear them with a crop top. Wearing black and white really allows you to play with different colors in your accessories. I chose to pair this look with metallic accessories but the next time, I’ll probably pair these paints with a little more color.

Throw Away the Mold

Hello,

This spring, I’m having a lot more fun with fashion. I’m pushing myself to wear different color combinations and I love it. My number one rule with fashion is: have fun! Fashion is supposed to be about expression. Whatever you decide to wear for the day, it should express how you feel. Never feel compelled to wear something to please someone else. Never dress a certain way because you’re afraid of what others might think. At the end of the day, you need to be happy with yourself. If you don’t fit into a box or a certain mold, own it. Stand out. When God created you, He threw away the mold. Be proud that there’s no one else like you.

This particular day, I was feeling bold and flirty. This off the shoulder ruffled dress helped me bring out the flirty side. I paired it with my metallic loafers to bring an unexpected element to this look and I loved the result.

How to Wear a Dress with Sneakers

Hello!

I’m all about comfort nowadays. We’re almost in our third trimester so I’m all about comfort! This sweater dress from Queen Styles Boutique is comfortable and can be paired with boots during the fall and winter and a pair of sneakers during the spring. I love wearing a dress and sneakers together. I opted for a sweater dress but you can try this look with a shorter cotton dress or a collared dress( think t-shirt dresses). Don’t overthink it. One of the best benefits about this look is that it’s simplistic, so use that to your advantage.

How to: Have Fun with Spring Fashion

Hello,

It’s official, spring is finally here! Spring represents a new beginning. The flowers are blooming, daylight lasts longer, and the temperatures are rising. It’s truly a beautiful time of year and it’s a perfect time to reflect the season in your wardrobe! Go ahead, experiment with bright colors. Want to wear bright print? Do it! If you’re not used to wearing bright colors or prints, start small. For example, try pairing a bright colored shirt with denim pants. Another option to brighten up your wardrobe is to wear pastel colors. This time of year, there are plenty of pastel colored dresses in stores, try one on! Fashion isn’t about looking perfect. Fashion is all about having fun with your look.

I wore this pink pastel dress to bring in the new season. To mix up my look, I paired this dress with a grey hat and black boots.

Wearing Bright Colors During Winter

Hello!

So it’s been a busy week for me. I recently posted that we’re having a baby boy on my Instagram and we’ve been busy getting his nursery together! Now more than ever, I’ve been dressing in layers especially when we’re out running errands. It’s been pretty cold in North Carolina but I’m so ready for spring. Wearing this shirt was the perfect solution for me. It’s lightweight so I won’t get overheated plus the bright color makes me feel like spring is here! Wearing bright colors during the winter is all about balance. I love pairing this bright shirt with pants that are a neutral color, like these jeans.
