SLEEK SHADES WITH SOJOS VISION

Happy Monday friends. I’m seeing a little brighter these days with my new Sojos Vision sunglasses, also sporting the another color blocked look. So, let’s talk Amazon. I’d ask who loves Amazon, but I’m almost 100% positive everyone basically loves Amazon seeing as the malls are looking a bit empty these days. I literally order everything we need for the house and beyond from Amazon, no lie, but honestly, have never ordered much apparel or accessories till now. I’m excited to share that I’ve partnered with Sojos Vision, an online fashion sunglasses store hosted through Amazon. They have some of the cutest sunnies EVER. This is one of two pairs I received for this particular collaboration. I know, they look like regular glasses, but they are actually sunglasses and definitely a pair I’ll be sporting for the rest of the summer and possibly into fall. I love the look of these, they are sleek with a little bit of nerd chic. I also love that when I wear these I can show off my eye makeup but their still sunglasses too; granted I have zero eye make-up on in these shots it’s still a plus in my book when I do decide to one day stop being lazy and wear a full face, LOL. I like the way the glasses look on my face. Now you all know all sunglasses aren’t created equal, therefore every frame doesn’t look good on me but without a doubt these fit perfectly and aren’t too small for my face which is typically the issue I have when hunting for new shades.

Now we all know the best way to protect your eyes from the harsh UV rays and still look cute is with a pair of sunglasses. 😎  This was literally my excuse for visiting their website for like the 1 millionth time seeking another pair of cute sunnies I don’t actually need. I just keep saying UV rays are bad for my eyes while I add things to my Amazon cart, LOL. FYI, this is a no judge zone if I didn’t already mention it at the beginning of my post, LOL. Anyway, this is just one of two pairs of sunnies I received so I’ll be showing you how I styled the others in a later post. I can’t wait, I’m so excited.

What sunnies are you rocking this summer? Aviators? Ray Bans? Mirrored sunglasses? Round frames? Let me know in the comments below.

WEDGE LOVE WITH BLOWFISH MALIBU

This is how I’m bringing in August, with a brand new pair of Blowfish Malibu wedges and lots of color of course. My my how summer has flown by. This means I have to get as much wear out these cute shoes as possible before fall sweeps in and crushes all my open toe shoe dreams. There’s nothing like a pair of wedges, but more than that, there is nothing like a pair of comfortable wedges that match EVERYTHING. I’ve literally been wearing these shoes with every outfit, on every day of the week. I think everyone should get  a pair of nude wedges. Honestly, it almost makes me think I’m neglecting my other shoes in my closet because I’ve been wearing these so much. I think what I like most about these shoes is the comfort and the velcro straps. The straps aren’t complicated and I literally just slip my foot in them and go. Not to mention, I can walk around in them all day and not feel like my feet are going to fall off from pain. I’ve had wedges in the past that do that, but these are definitely all-day-wear type of shoes. Cute and comfortable, I’ll take it.

I’m digging my new Blowfish shoes so much I’ve picked a few of my other faves on their site that I think you may like. In case you’re curious, here are Dee’s Blowfish Malibu shoe picks; I’m loving these, these and these.  You should head on over to their site and check out the dope summer styles they have available. From the looks of my shoes picks I guess you now know I love prints, more specifically prints on my shoes. I’m no stranger to prints and colors, but you knew that already, LOL. 😂

I bet you’re wondering how I’ve been styling my new shoes. Well, lately, I’ve been wearing my wedges with a good ole pair of denim. Nothing feels sassier than pairing it with some denim jeans like I’ve styled here for this post. It’s cute, comfortable, it’s stylish and great for a night out. So, how do you rock your wedges? Drop your fave summer shoe finds in the comment box. Would love to know what your styling and profiling this summer.

Till next time…

THE BLAZER CODE: 5 BLAZER MUST HAVES

Now you know the blazer is the ultimate staple in my wardrobe. It’s one of my signature style pieces and I wear one just about everyday. I think every fashionista should own a few. Why? Because they pair well with any outfit, are easy, and make even your most boring looks stylish and so put together. Today I’m dropping a list of the 5 must have blazers, enjoy!

PRINTED BLAZER

You must have a blazer with a funky print. I have several and pair them with an all white or all black look. Sometimes, when I’m feeling extra extra, I pair my printed blazer with printed bottoms. As you know, I’m no stranger to mixing prints and colors. My advice to you would be to step out of your comfort zone and just go for it. Try different pattern mixes till something floats your boat. You’ll be surprised how much you stand out and shine.

ALL BLACK BLAZER

A black blazer is a must! No doubts or questions about it, having one of these in your closet is great for interviews, toning down a crazy look and it’s great for work and church events too. It’s simple, it’s sleek, its conservative, sophisticated and screams all grown up. Get you one of these and keep it for the days you have to slay the work place with style and grace.

COLORFUL BLAZER

Like the printed blazer, having one or 2 fun bright, bold colorful blazers is a MUST. If you’ve been following along for sometime now, you know I’m famous for mixing and matching my colorful blazers with other colorful pieces in my wardrobe. This is a great way to restyle a look and play to the seasons of the year. I often pair a bright, colorful blazer with a more toned down look like all black or all white and when I’m feeling extra extra, I color block and add some bright, bold colors on the bottom to compliment my blazer. However you rock it, just know one or two colorful pieces (specifically a blazer) will help elevate your wardrobe and take your color game to the next level.

LINEN BLAZER

Okay, I know I complain so much about linen being wrinkly and just by far the most annoying fabric on earth, but I’m not going lie when I say I LOVE LOVE LOVE a good linen blazer. Right now it’s scorching hot in NC and a linen blazer allows me to be chic and still stay cool in this crazy heatwave. You can still be comfortable and chic, and a linen blazer offers the best of both worlds. Just be sure to iron real well before use. Just a warning, also just personal experience. Literally walked around looking like a road map one day. #lessonlearned LOL. 😂

CROPPED BLAZER

Not sure this look is actually trending right now, but you know me, I don’t care. Trend or no trend, if it looks good and makes me feel good, I’m for it honey. I love a good cropped blazer because they are just short enough not to steal the attention of an eye grabbing bottom such as a tulle skirt or bright colored pants or distressed denim. Cropped blazers are a great layering piece for elevating a look, but still leaving time for people to really focus on the other pieces you’re wearing. I have 1 or 2 shorter blazers that I wear frequently when I really want to show off my cute skirts and printed pants.

Speaking of blazers, I nabbed this pretty teal and purple one while in VA a few weeks back. Check this, I paid $3 for it. No lie. I love thrifting, I always feel like I’m winning and so is the thrift store. One more thing before I go, I mixed my OuiFresh lippies for this post and you can shop both amazing lippies here and here. Enjoy!
