The Perfect LBD

I did this photoshoot when my eye was messed up from the great rubbing alcohol incident of 2017 (post here). Luckily, my shades hid my scary eye. So real talk, are you guys sick of the Nordstrom sale? I am, I honestly am so sick of hearing about it. I may be the worst blogger ever because I didn’t plan a Nordstrom post. Sorry about that, I just figured everyone else posted enough. *shoulder shrug*. I’m not really a “sell you” kind of person. of course I post about products I’m using, but aggressively trying to sell just isn’t me.…

Summer Casual

So funny story for you. Actually, this is more of a gross funny story. If you’re squeamish stop reading now. Ok so here goes. a few weeks ago I was getting dressed in the dark. I don’t turn the light on sometimes because my husband is still in bed and I think flipping the light on is rude. Strange what marriage does to people. Anyway, I was fresh out of the shower and standing at my dresser putting my contacts in. I picked up what looked like my contact lenses solution, filled my contact lens up, and stuck it in my…

Confidence and Off the Shoulder Looks

This is about as close as I’ve come to embracing the off-the-shoulder trend. Well, except for the maxi dress I wore a few posts back. I really like the look of off-the-shoulder tops and dresses on other people but not so much for me. That is until recently. I just recently started wearing sleeveless tops and dresses, it’s been baby steps on exposing my arms and shoulders. Want to know the silly reason why? Here goes. I used to think my arms were oddly small. Over the years many people have commented on how small my arms are. They are…

Summer Loving

So you know I’ve been on this huge “I don’t want to be only surface deep” kick lately. Which isn’t really a kick, real is a lifestyle folks. All of that was meant to be sorta funny. Seriously though, I feel so much better emotionally for saying something so simple as – I’m going to be me on my blog. I don’t want to be superficial, share only the good, and I don’t want to be fake. I just want to be myself – Regina. My last few posts have been fun to write and fun to post because I…

For the Love of Resale

So let’s real talk for a bit. I’ve been working a ton lately but I’m still sticking to my plan of slowing down. I’m working to relax more and give my mind a break. I love work but we all need a break sometimes. I’m learning to enjoy my weekends, my family, and taking the time to relax. Basically, I’m learning to chill. Another thing I’ve been working on is my closet and the struggle is very real. I have a hard time parting with my clothes and especially shoes. I’ve got a few things I feel I can’t live…

It’s All in the Details

Even though I’m adding color to my wardrobe these days I still love (and I mean LOVE) a solid color outfit. My favorite being, an all black outfit. I feel like I can take over the world when I’m wearing an outfit I feel great in. Doesn’t everyone? Give me a great outfit and I’m ready to conquer the day. I love an all black look because I feel sleek, polished, sexy, and confident all at once. I try not use language on my blog but I would go ahead and insert bad a** in that list as well. Simple…

I Don’t Want to be Only Surface Deep

After a little over a year and a half of blogging, I realized I haven’t shared many details on who I am as a person. Yeah, I’m sharing my personal style, blog tips, and some motivation from time to time but I haven’t gone very deep. Blogging for me isn’t only happy topics and personal style. This is entirely a personal choice for me. Sharing my life experiences is one of the main reasons I started blogging. I had and still have a desire to create and share with others, but I don’t want to be surface deep. Surface deep,…

Maxi Dresses with Romwe

I hope everyone is having an awesome Monday. Monday’s can be awesome right? I’ve said this a ton lately, but it has been beautiful outside. I feel like I can’t get enough sun! I guess that is about to change though because apparently the rest of the week will be nothing but rain and storms. Sounds fun huh?  Today, I have a style post that is a bit different from my regular stye in collaboration with Romwe. This fun site has become my go-to for good deals when I want to try something new or different (previous post here). If…

Pocket Tee Dresses and OTK Boots

It has been absolutely gorgeous outside for the past few days. Bright blue skies and perfect temps have me loving being outdoors. I’ve been been craving easy outfits on these gorgeous days. Specifically, dresses that are easy to wear. One thing I love almost as much as my OTK boots are lightweight and easy dresses. Dresses that can be worn basically any way you chose. If you want to get dressed up – add some boots or heels. If you want to dress down – throw on sneakers or sandals. Yeah, those kind of dresses. Light summer dresses and sneakers…

The Little Black Dress Meets Spring

I hope everyone had an awesome weekend and spent time with loved ones. I’m not going to lie, my house avoided family events and laid low all weekend. We used the time to catch up on work then crashed for two straight days. Monday was spent more like a Sunday. We binge watched Catfish then The Blues Brothers Movie (true story). I think it’s safe to say we are living the life. Anyway, I’m so in love with the beauty of the season right now. Lately, I’ve had this revived sense of being alive. Springtime brings out this amazing sense…

Blue Jean Baby

Blue Jean Baby, that is the best title I could come up with? Have I lost my creative touch? Just kidding! I actually like it! So, for weeks I have been on the hunt for the perfect vintage denim jacket. I knew it had to be the one, and I would feel instant love when I found it. I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of denim jackets. I’ve owned a few over the years but I didn’t wear them. I’m not sure what sparked my want for a denim jacket this season but I knew I wanted a…

Ordering Glasses Online Made Easy with Coastal

This post is sponsored by Coastal and they’re changing the way you order eyeglasses. In fourth grade, my mom took me to the eye doctor and I picked out my first pair of giant glasses. The best part of it all – I could see clearly! I had no idea I needed glasses until I could finally see clearly. I wish I could rewind time and see my little kid face light up! Flash forward and guess what? I still love a great pair of giant frames! What to know what I don’t like? Sure you do! I don’t like choosing…

Short Skirts and Long Jackets

I want a girl in a short skirt and a long jacket. Come on, you remember that Cake song, right? When I see these photos I want to sing that song. It was a great song! Just like the song, I do love pairing short dresses and skirts with long jackets (previous looks here and here). I’ve been doing it every season and it feels so glam! I love no fuss looks but sometimes I want to glam things up a bit! Instant glam is easy to create if you have the right pieces. In my opinion, a longline coat…

Mix things up with ROMWE

How beautiful is it outside lately! If you don’t live in my area I’ll go ahead and tell you – It’s fantastic! Spring is in full bloom and I’m loving it. I have such a love for Springtime (check out why I love Spring here). Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different wardrobe textures, colors, and looks. I love to mix lux and more affordable pieces into my daily work looks. Some of the most simple yet polished outfits can be made by pairing a simple wardrobe piece with a lux item. For this look, I paired this cardi with a…

Spring Style with Jane

Spring has arrived and I’ve been wearing tons of colors. I can’t help it though, I always love simple and polished looks I can wear on Monday or Saturday (previous looks here and here). My eyes are always drawn to pieces that will last awhile. I don’t typically hop onboard trends. Sometimes it happens though. Occasionally, I spot a trend and I’m like oh yeah, gotta try that. Those are my exact thoughts about loafers and slides.  I’ve always loved loafers, it must be something about my love of vintage style. Probably because I love to create looks that are…
