Are Cape Dresses Still A Thing?

Are cape dresses still a thing? Cape dresses were all the rage a few years ago and now it seems like its just a part of history. It’s previous popularity came at no surprise as cape dresses fit a variety of body types. While some people only wear trending styles while they’re trending, I’m quite the opposite. I tend to wait till a trend dies down before I dabble in it and I only dabble in styles that I love. With that being said, I’ve always loved cape dresses. Because…

A Crochet Bikini Turned Crop Top

Does this count as a crop top? I began crocheting this pink bikini top before last spring and I learned that bikinis should be made from softer yarns.

Because I love the style of this bikini, I’ll definitely recreate it with the proper yarn so in the meantime, I’m wearing this bikini as a regular top (although it’s technically not…

Its Still Bikini Season

Yes I know its December and its cold in many places but I just wanted to share this bikini that I finally got the chance to wear. I caught an epic Matte Swim Sale last year and didn’t get the chance to wear the bikini until this fall. It was absolutely worth the wait! Pairing this bikini with the Befitting Style Dashing Earring was a no-brainer. I’ve always loved how neutral tones like light brown accents different shades of orange.. especially burnt orange. I’ve also preferred wearing tassel earrings with…

The More Texture The Better

I just realized that I’d love to invest (a cool way for me to say buy LOL) in more clothes that feature bold textures. This orange dress is a simple halter top mini dress and I fell in love with it simply because of it’s texture. I paired this Zara dress with Tory Burch Sandals and the Dashing Earrings from the Befitting Style Holiday Collection. The Holiday Collection is filled with so much texture and really makes me proud of the woman I’m becoming. It was actually hard to decide…

My 3 Step Skincare Routine

My skincare routine is only 3 steps. I stayed away from sharing my skin care routine for so long because it’s pretty basic. I don’t do much and when it comes to skin, I believe less is more. Sharing my skincare routine has become necessary as I previously shared that I tried Fenty Skin. Now that I no longer use Fenty Skin, I feel inclined to share what works for me. Take a peak at the video below to watch me discuss why I no longer use Fenty Skin. Skin…
