Don’t Quit, Your Dreams Need You!

I usually start my blog post with a quote from an article I’ve read, or person that inspires me. This time I pulled out one of my favorite t-shirts by Eloquii, Don’t Quit Your Day Dream and paired it with this dreamy blue suit from Asos Curve.  The puffed sleeves even remind me of dreamy clouds.…

Is My Happy Yellow?

Lately I’ve been struggling with the question, “How can I find my Happy”?  Now I’m not encourageing you to find your happy on a rack at Macys, but when I came across this yellow moto jacket started singing “Happy Feelings” (in my Frankie Beverly voice).

Sweatshirt Dress? Yes Please!

When I saw this midi sweatshirt dress on the fashion designer Ashley Nell Tipton, I was smitten! A dress as comfy as a sweat shirt and no spanx necessary… sign me up.   I quickly found out midi on her meant almost mini on me #tallgirl.   Either way this  fashionova dress is still adorable and…
