CUSTOM RESORT WEAR WITH BEAUTIQUE STYLES

And while in Costa Rica we bring out the big guns and wear the brightest outfit possible on the beach in a sea full of people wearing your basic black and whites, LOL. Yes, I said it and yes I did it. Costa Rica wasn’t ready for me, or were they?

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Out here super busy trying to graduate and all, so photos from Costa Rica have been on delay while I get my life together. Legit wrote a 50 page capstone paper in less than two weeks. Yes, ladies and gentleman, I’m an avid, but professional procrastinator. Too much time to think about things means I overthink, so I often wait until there is a little pressure before I delivery the best work of my life. This explains the mounting patch of gray hairs making a home front and center at the top of my head, LOL. Yup, #thestruggleisreal but only because I refuse to do better, LOL.

On another note, if you’re in need of some custom beachwear/resortwear you should definitely check out my girl Shalonda Walker of Beautique Styles. She made this fun green and orange number I was rocking at Jaco Beach in Costa Rica a few weeks back. She does custom designs for all shapes and sizes and she is so professional and quick too. I’m a forever customer, that’s for sure. You can check her out on Instagram at: @beautiquestyles. DM her for inquires.

Welp, that’s all for now everyone, I’ll be back with the first set of travel photos from my trip to CR. If you absolutely can’t wait, feel free to check out a few on our photography page on Instagram or Facebook, @craigspick.

Till next time.

A FALL LOOK WITH BLOWFISH MALIBU

Me and my fave blogger friends hit the road last week and headed to DJ’s Berry Patch in Cary, NC to snap some shots that showcase some of our fave fall looks because why not! It’s fall yall! Anywho, I’m so thankful to have teamed up with Blowfish Malibu again to bring you the cutest little fall green booties. I was a bit reluctant to wear them as I was unsure how to style these boots. You all know me, I’m all about the bright colors and this color was certainly a new look for me, but what do you think? Think I pulled off an effortless fall look or nah? LOL 😂

My Blowfish Malibu booties are now a staple in my fall looks for this season. I realize that just because they are not the brightest color in the crayon box, doesn’t mean they don’t get or deserve the same love. With that being said, aside from the look I’m featuring in this post, I plan to challenge myself this fall season and share a few more fall looks with these booties because lets face it, I need to be better about mixing the dark fall pieces with my own colorful flair in my outfits. In this case, I’ve added some fun plaid pants to complete the look and I did some layering. I know, I know, I just can’t help myself when it comes to the colors and prints. Nothing in my closet is practical. Well, nothing in my closet was practical until these booties hit my closet. It’s definitely a game changer now.

So what boots or shoes are you wracking up on or styling this fall?

Till next time.

Sincerely,

PURTY GIRL CASUAL CHIC

All the Purty things on the blog today. Sometimes I keep it casual and other times I do it dressy casual or what I like to call casual chic. One thing I pride myself on is making casual look cool and really freaking put together. Saturdays are usually the days I try to make my tee’s look super fashionable since I have more time to really think about my look and the vibe I’m feeling for the day. I have a formula to this: SUNNIES+EARRINGS+BOLD LIP+METALLIC SHOES+COOL DENIM=Casual Chic.

Ya see, it’s not rocket science. I strongly believe that with this formula you can’t go wrong. All a good tee needs is some love from their good ole friends accessories and bam, you have something that can take you from day to night just like that. I’m currently digging the new tee’s from Purty and they have some of the best new accessories inventory to take your tee to the next level, I’m purty sure of it, LOL 😂

Loving my very Purty pieces? Well you can Shop my Purty tee here and if you’re so loving my dangly printed earrings, you can shop those babies here or here in another color.

Here’s to making casual the new chic.

Till next time good people.

Sincerely,

Deidra Marie
