Live To Sparkle

Live to Sparkle...what does this mean to you? To me this saying means live to be yourself because being yourself brings out your own unique sparkle. I love this saying and living by it, literally! These jeans are life. I can't get over the sequin design. I love that with every step I take I literally, sparkle.

Boyfriend jeans are a wardrobe essential. Something about the fit creates that chill and chic look. Now add a little sequin and they're show stoppers. These dazzling denims are from 2020 Ave's new plus size collection. The fit is great. They sit right above my belly button, comfy, and stretchy.

You can never own to many white tees. They're versatile and come in different styles. This one has the cutest eyelashes and knot detail. A knot is a great style hack because it helps accentuate the waist. Making you go from boxy to curvy.

A pair of clear frames added a fun and edgy finish to the overall look.

3 Looks 1 Mesh Dress

Lately, I've seen this mesh dress everywhere. I first saw it on Kim Kardashian at the MTV VMA's and now in stores. I've seen in red, white and my personal favorite black. I thought it would be a great idea to show you how versatile this piece can be. I put together 3 looks styled completely differently.

Since its still summer, I thought a swimsuit look would be ideal. A mesh dress is one of my favorite layer pieces for a fun poolside outfit. You get the coverage you want but still get a little sneak to what's underneath.

A dress doesn't necessarily need to be worn as a dress. I paired this little number with a pair of distressed shorts. I accessorized this outfit with a double buckle belt, a wide fedora hat, and super tall platform heels. With these accessories and shorts this dress has a fun boho vibe.

Be a little daring and wear just your bra and high waited panties under the mesh dress. Layer a floral print duster to elevate the look. The little black dress never looked so edgy and sexy.

With or Without a Bra?

As a busty girl, it can be difficult to wear those cute tops that are meant for you to go bra-less or wear with a strapless bra. I myself can't do both. Let's just say gravity is not my best friend... haha. 

Fashion Nova sent over this cute top and comfy pair of white jeans from their new Summer ‘17 Collection. I love the ruffle detail and off the shoulder design of the top. This is a top that you might want to go bra-less or wear with a strapless bra. Because that's not an option for me I wore my bra and layered a vest to hide the straps. Just by layering a little bit we don't have to avoid those strapless little numbers.

I love how this outfit turned out. I threw on a pair of single strap heels and rolled up the jeans. A pair of clear frame sunglasses gave this look and edgy touch and completed the outfit.

A Top with Style

Save the drama for your blouse. Nothing can elevate an outfit like a top with a little style. Flowy tops, bell sleeves, and lace details add that stylish and chic element to you outfit. Wear them for a casual lunch with friends or date night.

My personal favorites are bell sleeves. I love that they have so much movement and add drama to an outfit.  Let the sleeves do all the talking and keep the rest of your outfit simple. Like, I did here. I paired the top with faux leather pants and black single strap heels. This makes a perfect night out outfit. 

​I bought this top last year at ZARA and it's not available anymore. You don't necessarily need this top to add a little style to your wardrobe. I put together 5 options below that will add that WOW factor to your look.

As I opened my first Fix, I right away was captivated with the jacket and tee. I love the draped design on the jacket and the distressed details on the t-shirt. I instantly knew these would be great with a pair of cuffed jeans. You can never go wrong with this combo. It always looks chic and edgy.

I love to throw on a statement necklace when I wear a tee and jean outfit. It elevates the look and dresses up the assemble. I completed my outfit with over-sized sunnies and a pair of black single strap heels.
