Mother celebration month is officially here! When I think of the woman balancing motherhood alongside all her other responsibilities the first word that comes to mind is:
Bam!!! Here are the long lasting blooms and the thrifted Kaftan that better last a lifetime!
Hanging flowers upside down helps them to open up and last longer !
It’s simply an extra AF pose that will cause others to laugh hysterically and question your sanity! & if you’re lucky they may ask you where you snagged your shoes from!
I promise this is not an ad – these clorox white sneakers are Nike and were snatched off the DSW clearance rack. I tip toe around town trying to stay clear from all signs of dirt 😉 .
Do you know what kind of flower this is?
This is the ” Lily of the Incas”.
The scientific name is “Alstroemeria” & they come in a plethora of colors.
The detailed print on this Kaftan needs proper acknowledgement.
Let’s stare and admire the wardrobe art.
Originally I thought I’d only wear this $4 gem at home, but it makes me feel like royalty – so I’ve ventured out of my palace and into the supermarket with it on!
My new fashion motto is to: Standout & Wear Whatever I Want!
If someone has something to say – I am prepared to slide them my Reseller Stylist business card and offer to hook them up with some royal threads 😀 .
Alstroemeria “Lily of the Incas” has lasted as long as 3 weeks for me! I typically pick up 2 different colored bouquets for $8. Once I get them home, I sit down at the kitchen and let my mind drift while I prep them for the vase. The ends get cut and the leaves on the lower portion of the stem get snipped. I also clip off any leaves that look beat up. Then – in the vase they go.
As time goes on – the water will obviously need to be changed and I just keep cutting the stems down.
These flowers are so easy to take care of and truly have a
“long lasting beauty”.

I spent $20 dollars on the featured thrift finds and cannot wait to uniquely pair them with other wardrobe items! I’m pretty sure I’m going to change my name to Daylight Golden Sunshine – color is an obsession!
Don’t be afraid to be a glorious walking ray of sunshine this Spring! Are you stepping out into the light looking bright? Do tell! 🙂
Wear color confidently and don’t be afraid to stand out!
Football season brings flashbacks to my childhood – the traveling, tape watching, and all the fancy perks of being immersed in the world of the National Football League.
Now, as an adult, there are three triggers that bring out my inner football fan :
To celebrate the big game I pulled out some official NFL swag – the leather jacket that my Queenie Mommaz used to rock! 🙂
I absolutely loved wearing this memory jacket and pairing it with my thrift finds. The items pictured below cost me a total of $10 and they are designer brands!!!
I saw the polka dot top and then saw the Michael Kors brand! Instant snatch up! Long live the polka dot and the pinterest board dedicated to it’s greatness!!!
The purse was buried in a clutch pile, I tried it on, and knew it was something of quality. I did a quick google search right in the store and confirmed that Halston Heritage was a designer brand! I bought the bag for $4 dollars and have no plans of letting it go soon! That chain was made into a heart for good reason – plus it’s love month ! 🙂
These two classy chic finds and the jacket made for the perfect combo!
To be honest the jacket is a combo all by itself. The combination of the simple truths that make me proud of both my parents.
To the one whose name is written in this jacket – thank you for being the ultimate pro. & for doing it with style & grace. 🙂
Peace & Blessings,
