Flower Power Shorts

Hey y’all! Finally hoping on to share these shorts with you guys! HOW CUTE ARE THEY?! Pink + floral!? = perfection!! They are also $17 so that makes them even better!

These photos were taken a little earlier last month so at the time I paired them with a white body suit, a jean jacket, some white sneakers and this adorable hair tie! Of course at this moment in Louisiana the heat is already full on and I would not pair with a jean jacket πŸ˜‚

Either way a cute casual white top tucked in or out would be cute! I sized up in the shorts (because y’all know I’m all weird about having shorts/pants cut into your waist) but definitely didn’t need to! I’d say they run true to size!

Floral Short | $17

I’m also going to take a moment to talk about the yummiest place to get a shake ever in life!!! Shake therapy!! okay, I am not one that gets to have sweets every night of the week, so when I get them I want it to be exactly what I want! Y’all, this place lets you literally build your own shake! You get to pick your ice cream base, things you want to add in it, what you want on the rim & what you want as toppings! Ummm a Nutella rim?! YES! I know I’m being a little dramatic, like hello Chelsey it’s just desert. But, it was that good, so I’ll own it!

I also get a lot of questions about my sneakers, I am sharing them below! They are around $80 and I absolutely love & get a lot of wear out of them! They are perfect to dress down an outfit or keep it casual and they are actually very easy to keep clean! Anytime I get stuff on them Ryan throws them in the wash machine for me and they are good as new!

Superga | $80

I’ll link the rest of my outfit down below & I’ll pray for you all that you get to go to shake therapy soon! lol, trust me! It’s worth it!

Tuesday Shoe Day

Totally aware it’s Wednesday, butttt just go with it! Today’s Tuesday shoe day is dedicated to a more causal pair of kicks! They are a tad on the more pricey side too but they feel like heaven on your feet & the color is the most perfect color ever! – so, they are worth the splurge!

I would also recommend sizing up a full size because they are a more fabric type of shoe and it makes them fit a little tighter! I normally wear an 8, ordered an 8 1/2, and could have deff gone for the 9. I don’t actually go running in running shoes so this isn’t too big of a problem that they are a little snug πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ.

Linking them down below!

Nike | $150

Happy Wednesday people! Half way there!

ruffle pants & the perfect crop top!!

Happy Tuesday guys! I’m finally back in the swing of things after my vacay and am ready to hit the ground running with some blog posts! I have some caaaauteeee stuff I’ve been holding out on, so … let’s dive right in!

Today I am sharing the cutest pants that I came across and just had to have!! They have a flowy girlie look to them and I love that! They can definitely be worn dressed up or down for different occasions! I love where they are hitting at the ankle and the way they split (p.s. this whole split pants thing is very in for summer, I’m sure there’s a real term for them but we’ll just roll with it)!

Ruffle Wrap Pants | $38

I paired them with the most PERFECT tuckable crop top! The feel, fit, & color of this crop top are going to make it very versatile for summer. It can be worn with anything high waisted in any color! Since I’m a little bustier in the chest I tend to like a tighter fitting shirt with a pair of flowy pants.

Off the Shoulder Crop |$8.90

I would have rather wore these pants with a one strap ankle heel. However I left them at Krista’s House when we went to shoot. Sooo, my feet are cropped out of most of the pictures! I had to throw on whatever shoes I had in the car pahaha!!! I would wear a shoe just like what is pictured on the model!

I think this outfit is so cute for a summer function where you have to be a little more dressy casual! The pants are made pretty well and for the price I think they are a steal! I’m also linking some similar pants options below in the shop the post slider so be sure to check if you want some other options!

I also sized up in the pants because they have an elastic band & that’s always one of my little tricks. If I’m wearing a tight tucked in top I want the waist band to be looser that way it’s not creating indent in my side. I also size up on most crop tops because ummmm, they are already small and I’m not 18 anymore so yea πŸ˜‚ also my pants were supposed to be tied a little bit more and hide the elastic band but, ya can’t win them all right?! They also deff need to be steamed or ironed!

And before I forget I wanted to wish all the mommas reading a happy late Mother’s Day! I’m laughing to myself because I know a bunch of you have actually got my blog info from my fabulous momma! My mom is the best & I am so thankful for her constant love, support, & selflessness. She’s always been the person telling me I can make anything happen & I know if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be half of what I am today. So, to the rest of my family, friends, clients and blog readers that are mommas – I certainly hope y’all all had a great day yesterday because lawd knows y’all deserve it!

Dry Shampoo Favorite

Okay, so I’m kinda sure I have maybe already done a blog post on this … however, I have had a margarita and am super into this product so I’m sharing again. Since I’m traveling and it’s a must bring, I feel like it’s necessary!

PAUL MITCHELL INVISIBLEWEAR DRY SHAMPOO. Y’all, I’m so obsessed & it’s only $18. I have never used anything that I instantly LOVED for my hair like this product. This whole new invisiblewear line Paul Mitchell has created is hands down my favorite line they have done so far (I plan on getting more into the line in a later post but for this moment we’ll just stick with the dry shampoo)!

They make a invisiblewear BLONDE & BRUNETTE dry shampoo. They have colors because if you take a normal dry shampoo and spray it all over a darker head of hair you will find that there is a light powdery residue that it leaves on the crown of the head (or wherever it has been sprayed). Paul Mitchell fixed this problem by creating a brown tinted powder, as well as a blonde tinted powder.

You would have never thought but this dry shampoo is working well to conceal grays in between color appointments too! Since this is doubling as a root touch up, I hear everyone that is using it raving about that aspect of it!!

I’d like to touch on one other thing about it that I love & then we’ll wrap it up! I also use this as a texture spray after I have just washed my hair. I know that sounds crazy?! I’m using a dry shampoo after I’ve washed my hair … BUT, since this is a powder like spray it give your hair crazy texture and volume! If you hate freshly washed hair lots of dry shampoos will give this affect, howeverrrrr, this dry shampoo in particular has proven to create MAJOR volume in hair!

Since I’m sure y’all are tired of me rambling I’m linking products below, click the pink & it will bring you directly to the products page!

BLONDE | $18

BRUNETTE | $18

so, in a nutshell, my main points for loving this product are 1) the formulation really works well for my hair. 2) the light color of the spray is actually nice because it lightens up my darker root in a very subtle way. 3) it gives crazy texture and volume.

Baker Boy Hat


Hey y’all! Blogging’ from Boston over here! I’ve sooo been waiting to share this hat with y’all from the second I got it! Okay, I’ve also been waiting to share the shirt too because I love it and it’s so comfy!

I couldn’t seem to get a good picture that I lovedddd enough to Instagram so y’all are just getting the picture on the blog lol! I think I am officially screwed because I am spoiled by Krista’s pictures! She is the freakin bestttt & now when I take a iPhone picture of a outfit I’m like…ew! Why does this look so crappy?! Obviously because it’s not taken on an professional camera. First world problems. I know! But just keeping it real!

Anyway, back to why we’re here! So, I paired my pink hat with a grayish white tie-up sweater tank & some white jeans! The top is supposed to be tight and kinda show your tummy & I didn’t want that walking around Boston so, I sized up! It ended up having a good relaxed fit! I threw on a jean jacket, because Boston is crazy and it’s 60 degrees here (aka freezing).

Baker Boy Hat | $14

Lace-Up Tank | $12

For shoes I went with my coolway espadrilles. YALL, I wore these ALL DAY walking around & they were SO COMFY! I am 110% a fan of these. I literally had no blisters anywhere and at no point did my feet hurt. I want them in every color now. I am officially obsessed with these because of their comfort level, their simplicity & their ability to work with a casual outfit or a dressy casual outfit! For the price of these I’m saying they are a must have shoe! I also think they are age appropriate for everyone!!!

Platform Espadrille | $54

So, if the hat is a little too much out of your comfort zone and this post was pointless at leastttt I brought you good shoe reviews right?! πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

App Favorite

Hey y’all! Happy Friday! TGIF for everyone else but me haha!! Today I wanted to hop on and share one of my favorite shopping apps with y’all! I’ve used this app for years and am always very happy with ANY purchases I make, be it clothes, furniture or beauty related products!

The app is called HAUTELOOK. It is a members only shopping app/website that does short sales with all kinds of brands. For instance they will have free people one day, Gucci the next and everything is marked down to about 50/75% off. (P.S. members only just means you need to be logged in to shop, anyone can join!)

I love this because it’s a good way to get DIFFERENT fashion finds for a less expensive price! So it’s not like your at the mall buying a shirt from Macy’s that 373673 other people in the New Orleans area have! HauteLook is owned by Nordstrom so you are getting very high quality pieces that you aren’t normally seeing!

I don’t just use them for clothes either. I have bought numerous items of furniture/decor for my house on this app! A huge discount on furniture or a nice new bed set is always a win win to me! They also have short sales on makeup/skin products too, I love this because I always stock up when they do!!

Plus for all my mommas, wifeys or just sweet girls that like to give gifts they have sections for men and kids/baby’s! I loveeee the baby finds on here for my best friends baby because again, they are different items that not everyone has!

I’ll upload some pictures below just so y’all can see what the app is like! First to chow you how they categorize things and second so you can see the price drop!

The catch here is that these sales will last for about 3 days, so you gotta snag stuff when you see it! I’m pre warning y’all that it’s a addictive shopping app lol! But I am telling you I get some awesome stuff from here!

Happy downloading!

These can be worn with jeans, a dress, a romper, shorts … I mean let’s be honest they can be worn with anything! Things like this are good staples to add to your closet since they can be worn multiple times, multiple different ways & are super versatile!

Happy Tuesday Shoe Day People!

Let’s Bell Bottom!

Y’all, I cannnn nottttt deal with how great these bell bottoms are! & who doesn’t love a good wide legged jean? I saw them and snagged them in both white and blue!

I’m also here to tell you that these have an AMAZZZZINGGGG price point! Like these are $78 dollars y’all! For a good pair of jeans that’s a steal!

These would be so cute with any type of top!! I really love them with a crop top because they are high waisted, making them not show your belly and it’s a good balance because it creates a short top with a wide bottom! This creates a flattering look!

The shirt that I am pairing the flares with here was perfect to me! It is meant to be a crop top & I loved that it had flare sleeves as well! The material of this shirt is light weight making it perfect for summer. It also will be so cute paired with jean shorts and some cute flats!!

These jeans come in tons of different washes, I’d pick by making them easy to go with something that would match the vibe of your closet or colors you most commonly wear!

Linking both my shirt & jeans below!

Flare Jeans | $78

Ruffle Sleeve Top | $32

Sizing in both of these items were normal to me! The only reason I may size up on the jean (or any jean) is to have a little extra movement in the band (so you don’t get a muffin top)!

Bottom line of this post, bell bottoms never go out of style!

Gingham Pink Shorts

Happy Friday y’all!! Bringing all the gloriousness (is that a word?) of these adorable pink gingham ruffle shorts to y’all today.

These can’t get any cuter, especially because they are $8.90 … helllooooo, run – don’t walk, to add these to your cart!! Pair these with a cute white top and you are set!

I’m thinking of even pairing them with a white tank and jean jacket for my next trip to Boston!

My off the shoulder button down is from MIA BOUTIQUE on Metairie road. I’m pretty sure she still had some but I’m listing some options below as well!

shorts | $8.90

– TOP OPTIONS –

Button Down | $14

Knotted Top | $20

Both of these tops would match these shorts paired with either a wedge to dress it up or even a white sneaker type shoe to give it a more relaxed vibe! The shorts are more flowy so I definitely think they need to be paired with a top that can be tied/knotted or with a tighter tucked in top!

Hope you guys have a fabulous Friday! I have some super cute stuff coming up in my next few posts so stay tuned!

The Guide To Shopping Online

Hey y’all! Here’s a blog post to make your Tuesday work day a little better. Hopefully?! I’ve been working on this post for a long time for you guys! Shopping online is something I find is a “love it” or “hate it” type thing for people. More so “hate it” but the most common answer I get when I ask “why?” Is because they are scared of it! “How do you know what size to order and how it will fit” is one of the biggest responses I get when people ask how I mostly shop online!

Now, I’m not kidding you. I buy 97% of my wardrobe online. I HATE going to the mall. I HATE feeling rushed while I’m shopping & I hate being bothered/pressured when I’m shopping! Online shopping on the other hand is a dreammmm πŸ˜‚ I can do it on my sofa for 6363637 hours, not be rushed, pressured, or bothered! I also tend to think more rationally because I can let stuff sit in my cart while I shop around!

This post is here to help make YOUR online shopping experience just as fabulous!! I’m sharing a few little tips and tricks I use that make 98% of my online buys a win! Since I’m a pro, I’ve learned some things over the years! Let the tips begin …

β€’ Keep your measurements handy

Pull out your tape measure & write your measurements down! I keep them typed in the notes of my phone so they are always there anytime I need them! Now I’m actually surprised by how many people don’t even know how to measure themselves so I’ll post some tips below! I always measure myself with just underwear and either no bra or an unpadded bra to make sure I’m getting the most true measurement!

β€’ Check out their sizing guide

So, THIS is where those measurements come into play! When buying online always check out the website you are ons size chart! By now we all know different stores, run different sizes! Check out the size guide and compare its measurements with yours!

β€’ Compare on the model

Okay – I have gotten really good at this & I find it helps so much! Most websites now a days will tell you what size the model is wearing in the picture details! They will list her height & a small, medium, or large! This is so helpful! If your looking at dress but are wondering where it will hit, check out where it hits the model & compare to where that means it will hit you! If I feel like a top looks short on a model, I know that won’t flatter me, so in situations like these I will size up! Or, if I think it makes a model look more fluffy then she really is, ill size down because I know it will just do the same to me!

β€’ If you have time & are unsure – SIZE UP!

Anytime I have an event coming up, if I’m a few weeks out and am unsure of what size to order, I will size up! I’d rather order a little big and have it fitted by my seamstress then have no outfit at all or to be in a outfit that’s too tight & not flattering!

β€’ Read through those reviews

This is the most helpful thing! Most websites have reviews listed for items of clothing your looking at! I try to read a few good and a few bad to make my choice of wether or not it’s a buy! Most of them have a place where people will fill out their height, weight, & normal size + what size they bought and you can compare yourself to that as well! Sometimes someone your height and weight may say “this was too tight for me” or “loved where this length hit my legs” this all helps when trying to decide what will look good on you!

β€’ know what sizes work where

I also keep a note of this in my phone. If I’m always a medium in dresses at forever 21, a size 4 in loose dresses or a 6 in tight dresses at ASOS, I have it written in my phone! This makes it a no brainer when I go to make other purchases because I already know what did or didn’t work for me!

β€’ size doesn’t matter

Okay this goes for online shopping & real life! We’ve all been there. I’m ordering this 27 in jeans because there’s no way I’m wearing a 28. Whatttt? Then I get home and wonder why I can’t wear a crop top with my jeans because I have fat rolling over the sides! HELLO! This is just making everything look worse! Listen, I’ll order a Small in one shirt and a large in the next because it’s not about the size it’s about how something is going to fit and compliment your body! No one knows you bought a 28 instead of a 27 and it’s probably more flattering because it fits right! Go with the size that fits your body!

That’s pretty much my ordering online spiel! If you guys can think of anything I may have left out or have any other questions about ordering stuff online comment below or email me! But I think I covered them all!

Happy future online shopping! Hope this helps!
