Here are a few more pics of my outfit specifically, and if you go to each of these bloggers websites they break down their outfits further as well!

On a side note, sorry it’s been a hot second since I posted last, my really good excuse though is adjusting to life with baby #2! I will definitely be doing a post on her birth story and figuring out life as a mamma of two, so keep an eye out for that!

Also who can believe it’s almost Christmas!? How did this year go by so fast?! But good news is this outfit is PERFECT for any holiday event you have because it’s both comfy, casual, but also chic!

The velvet shirt I’m wearing is AMAZING and is from a lovely place called My Sister’s Closet Boutique, and let me tell you, you need it in your life!

It’s such a great piece to dress up or down, and one that you can have for man years and use in many different ways!

IMG_8293

These velvet leggings are also super amazing and are so comfy yet so flattering! When I was looking at them I knew I needed them but i was a little worried they might show off some of my lovely lady lumps, but that wasn’t the case at all! Modcloth did a awesome job making sure these are high quality and thick.

And last, but certainly not least, are my leopard booties from Target. They are from their new brand A New Day, and I have already worn them so many times! I thought it was a fun pop of print, plus these lovelies are velvet too!

I’m going to try to squeeze in one more post before Christmas but if it doesn’t happen I will be for sure posting in January! So I will see you in 2018! Crazy!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

4th of July outfit inspo

Leave a reply

Hello beautiful people!

Sorry its been a hot second since I posted last, but alas, here I am!

I hope you have all been able to enjoy the sunshine and beauty that is summertime wherever you are, because I have to say summer is when I come alive again!

I love that summer is a time to go outside and play, and it also happens to be a time to celebrate two of my favorite holidays.

IMG_1733

You may be asking yourself, “What two holidays are in summer?!” and I’m here to tell you, my birthday (of course) and the 4th of July!

My birthday happens to be the longest day of the year and the first official day of summer, so I consider that something to celebrate!

This year for my birthday, which was June 21st btw, we kept it pretty low key, but that is exactly what this exhausted, pregnant mommy needed. I celebrated with good food and good friends, and what more could a girl ask for!

But now we are already upon my second favorite summer holiday, and this one called for some fun outfit inpo!

jul4

4th of July is a very patriotic holiday, so of course red, white and blue is a must. But for me I like to put that into my outfits in a more low-key kind of way, as you will see in these outfits.

If you like to go full out star-spangles-banner please, be my guest and do so! As always, fashion is about doing you and what you love. But of you are like me and like a touch of the patriotic, I hope these outfits will give you some ideas on what to wear!

jul7

I have to add that these outfits are more geared toward the night time when you will be heading wherever to watch fireworks, because I know if most of you are like me you will probably spend most of the day in a bathing suit at a lake, river, or beach somewhere.

IMG_1721

Dress: Maurices Shoes: Target Headscarf: Down East Lipstick: Lip Sense (Blue-red)

IMG_1726

For this first outfit I went pretty girly, but I just had to incorporate this gorgeous white dress from Maurices into one of my outfits.

I also CAN’T do 4th of July without some red lipstick somewhere.

jul9

IMG_1727

I find a great and subtle way to add some red, white or blue to your outfit is through some kind of accessory, like this headscarf, or through your makeup, like the lipstick I’m wearing.

For this second outfit I went a bit more casual, and also added a jacket for those of you that are going to be in places where it will get chilly at night.

IMG_1736

Shirt: Clad and Cloth Skirt: Old Navy Shoes: Steve Madden  Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters   Jacket: h&m

jul16

This red-embroidered short is one of my favorite purchases I have made this year, and I thought it would be good to incorporate into a 4th of July look.

The great thing about a shirt like this is if you wanted to make it even more casual and easy, just throw it over your bathing suit with some jean shorts and white sneakers of sandals and bam! Cute outfit to go.

jul12

jul15

This third outfit is the most covered up an subtle, but it can also be adjusted for whatever event or activity you are going to.

Also if you wanted to add more of the red, you could switch out the navy scarf for a red one, or add some red lipstick.

IMG_1694

Shirt: Luca and Grey Jeans: Simply Be Shoes: Poppy and Dot Scarf: Luca and Grey

IMG_1679

My red came from the subtle red-ombre I have on my hair!

Also the shoes below are SO COMFORTABLE, I highly recommend them!

IMG_1695

Well I hope you enjoyed these outfits and got something from it, and I hope that you all have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Tootles till next time!

Pretty layers & life updates

Leave a reply

pt2

Hello everyone!

Sorry its been WAAAY too long since I’ve posted, but man 2017 has been crazy town banana pants!

I obviously wanted to make this post about clothing and fun pieces for spring/summer, but I also thought you all might enjoy a little life update especially after my two month hiatus.

pt1

pt3

Starting last September I was having a lot of stomach issues, and beginning in December it took a turn for the worse.

It seemed that everything I ate put me in so much pain, and I couldn’t keep anything down. With a lively little 9 month old it was hard to keep the energy up to take care of him and my poor husband was so busy with school and work that it was stressing us all out.

Finally I went to the doctors and found out I had an infected gallbladder and gall stones, but that wasn’t all. To make things even crazier, we found out I was PREGNANT!!

It was a crazy whirlwind of events but it was also nice to finally know what was wrong with me and to find out that we were going to have another baby!

pt6

Fast forward a couple months and I was able to have my gallbladder removed, and we found out we are having a baby girl!!

Also in the process my little brother got married to a good friend and former roommate of mine, and our precious little boy turned 1!

So that is what our little family has been up to lately, and I hope that helps you all understand why I had to take a break for a bit.

But I’m back again and ready as ever to share some styling ideas especially for Spring/Summer! Well more like just summer, because it’s already May, holy cow!

pt4

 

pt5

So here it an outfit that I wore that I think encompasses one of my favorite aspects of this time of year, pretty, light layers!

That goes for clothing as well as jewelry. This kimono is a great example of that, and I love this trend because not only can you throw it over a dress or a t-shirt and jeans, but it’s also a great and cute bathing suit cover-up!

Who doesn’t love multi-functional clothing?!

pt8

pt9

Here are some options I found in case you were looking for a pretty kimono for yourself, as well as the one I’m styling in these photos.

I also included some similar shoes and necklaces that you can layer.

Also, isn’t this purse soooo cute? It was a great ASOS find and I just love the embroidery and blush color!

A simple little Valentine

Leave a reply

vdayh

Hello everyone, and happy February!

I am so happy its February because a) January is over, which means we are that much closer to spring, b) It’s my husband’s, who’s last name is Valentine, birthday on Valentine’s Day, and c) just Valentine’s day itself!

v1

v2

Even though in my single years I wasn’t always one to have a consistent valentine, my mom was ahead of her time and would do Galentine’s day before it was even a thing, and would always give my brothers and I a Valentine’s Day card and treat.

So for some this may be a tough holiday because they don’t have a significant other or believe this is a holiday made up by a card company, but I have always viewed it as a time to celebrate love, in all it’s forms.

So that can be with your best friend, brother, sister, father, mother, co-worker, whatever!

v3

img_1518

img_1521

Also being the girly-girl that I am, I love pink and red and always love a chance to wear the colors, and Valentine’s day gives me a perfect opportunity to do so.

Because my husband and I live in a very small town that is currently covered in snow, our Valentine’s plans are usually pretty low key, so that’s the kind of outfits that I decided to put together.

These are outfits that are just a tad bit fancier than just plain casual, but have casual elements within them.

Also I wanted to make it easy for you guys to re-create them for yourselves, whether you are going out with your SO or just celebrating with friends.

For the first outfit I decide to go a little edgy-romantic,with this fun blush-colored moto jacket along with this really cute dark floral and lace blouse.

blush

<br/>

For this second outfit I wanted to keep it really simple, but have a standout element like this red pea coat.

The great thing about the color red is that it really pops, so by having the red jacket you can keep everything else pretty simple.

v11

v14

v16

Simple doesn’t have to mean boring or plain however, and that’s why I decided to wear this beautiful high-necked blouse from Target, because it goes with everything but has gorgeous and intricate details to it.

I highly recommend adding a top like this to your wardrobe, because it’s a great versatile staple.

I provided some affordable but adorable options below!

Weekly roundup/Dressing for the frigid

Leave a reply

Wheeew!!!

That’s all I have to say about making it through this week!

It was quite a doosy, and I am just glad it’s over.

Sorry about the complaining, but losing your internet for a couple days can really send your world into a tailspin.

cold6.jpg

cold2.jpg

To tell you the truth that wasn’t the main reason this week was hard, but it definitely contributed to its overall awfulness.

A little life update: My husband is back at school and work which means that amazing, hard-working man is working his patooty off and we don’t see much of him around here (sadly).

Also little baby J is starting to teeth/having a growth spurt which means this mommy hasn’t been getting a lot of sleep (if any).

Luckily at the end of the day we make it work because we just love our cute little family and my two men make me the happiest girl in the world!

cold7.jpg

cold3.jpg

cold8.jpg

cold9.jpg

Also cute clothes really help. A LOT.

Also as I have mentioned SEVERAL times I am not a huge fan of winter, let alone when it’s horribly freezing outside.

The constant dumping of snow does not give me a lot of motivation to go outside, but when I do force myself to go out there I usually instantly regret it (LOL).

cold1.jpg

cold4.jpg

But it’s a new year and a time to try to be better and try new things, so I’m trying to suck it up as much as possible.

This cold has also given me the opportunity to try to be creative when it comes to clothing, because it’s very tempting/practical to just throw on the puffiest and warmest jacket, thick pants, and some snow boots and call it done.

cold10.jpg

Jacket: Thrift store/DIY here Collar: Old Navy Sweater: Thrifted Jeans: Aeropostale Shoes: Forever 21 Hat: Lulu Bella Boutique

But it is possible to look cute even in the coldest weather, and I tried to demonstrate that with the outfits above and below.

One of the most important aspects of dressing in the cold is LOTS of layers, so as long as you follow that rule you can still rock some super cute clothing.

cold13.jpg

Jacket: Forever 21 Sweater: Old Navy Leggings: Kohls Boots: Forever 21 Hat: Target

cold14.jpg

If you haven’t noticed I was a little obsessed with my cheetah jacket, probably because it’s super warm and a nice change from my black or other plain colored jackets.

Also a fun little add-on to my jean jacket to make it winter appropriate was a removable fleece collar, which also happens to be a big trend right now.

cold11.jpg

Jacket: Forever 21 Shirt: Forever 21 Jeans: ASOS Boots: Forever 21 Choker: Wet Seal Hat and Scarf: Target

But I hope you are all surviving this winter weather, and if it’s a lot warmer where you are soak it up for us who have to endure a couple more months of snow.

Have a great week!

A little NYE sparkle

Leave a reply

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, we had so much fun in California other than the fact that I had a nasty flu. But being with my family and friends and the proximity to the beach still made me feel so much better than if I was in -5 degree weather (sorry Idaho).

Anyways, it’s crazy to think in just a couple hours 2016 will be done and we will be on to a whole new year!

spark5.jpg

IMG_1338.JPG

I know for some NYE means staying cozy and warm and watching the ball drop from the comfort of your own home, and for others it means party time.

For me I’ve done both, but I think I prefer to ring in the new year getting my groove on at a party, dance, or some kind of large gathering.

The outfit I put together can actually be worn for both, it’s comfy enough to stay home but chic enough to be worn out and about.

IMG_1341.JPG

spark6.jpg

The thing I also love about this outfit is that it’s super simple, just a sparkly top, faux leather leggings, cute shoes, and some fun accessories and you are ready to go!

NYE sparkle

And with NYE I feel you can’t go overboard with the sequins/sparkle, so I made sure to have plenty on my eyes, face, nails, etc.

img_1370

spark8

2016 was definitely a year filled with lots of really highs (my son being born) and really lows (you-know-who being elected, celebrity deaths, etc.) but I am really looking forward to the new year and what it has to bring!

One thing I am very grateful for that happened in 2016 was the return of this blog and for those of you who read and support it! I hope it has helped you to be happier, even in the smallest way possible.

See you all in 2017!

Christmas party favorites

Leave a reply

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all having a great December filled with Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) goodness!

It’s getting mighty close to the big day, and we are excited because we are headed to California!

Sometimes I just need a break from the winter wonderland and need to spend some time in the sun. Plus I admit I am a complete wimp when it comes to the snow!

Anyways, I decided to do a little outfit inspo for all the holiday parties you are bound to attend leading up to Christmas day, from casual to dressy.

The great thing about the pieces of these outfits is that they are pretty timeless but also very on trend, and with any of them you can dress it up or dress it down.

velv1

Dress: Forever 21 Boots: H&M Choker: Wet Seal

 

velv3.jpg

vaelv4

Velvet is a HUGE tend this season, so I wanted to incorporate that into one of my outfits, and this dress was a very good find for that.

Also, its was only $12, so I had to snag it!

velv5.jpg

velv6

Unfortunately it is sold out, but below I gave you a few similar dresses as well as some accessory ideas.

velv7

velv10.jpg

velv8.jpg

velv12

The next outfit is a lot more casual but still involves a trendy item, and that’s this big comfy velvety/fuzzy sweater.

Jacket: Amazon Sweater: Aeropostale Jeans: Aeropostale Shoes: Forever 21 Choker: Wet Seal

Aeropostale is having an amazing sale right now, and this sweater is still available for only $13!!! I made sure to link it down below so make sure to snag it if you want to be comfy and cute at your next Christmas party.

The third outfit has one of my favorite elements of the holiday season; sparkles!

They technically are sequins, but you catch my drift.

spark1.jpg

Sweater: Old Navy Skirt: Abercrombie and Fitch Shoes: Forever 21 Choker: Forever 21

spark3.jpg

A sparkly or sequin skirt is actually really versatile and can quickly dress up an outfit.

This one I got a couple years ago from Abercrombie and Fitch (surprising, I know) but I gave you some very affordable options below as well as including a pleat metallic skirt, which is also a huge trend this season!

spark4.jpg

Sorry I don’t have more pictures with this magical skirt because on the day we took pictures is was suuuuuper cold and my camera decided it didn’t want to take pictures (eye roll emoji).

IMG_1301.JPG

I hope you all enjoyed this post and got some fun inspiration, and I hope you continue to have a merry Christmas and happy holidays!

The next post will be a fun get to know my family post featuring a few of our Christmas pictures.

Shop your closet: Christmas addition

Leave a reply

Hello, and happy December everyone!

Can you believe it’s only 19 days until Christmas???!

I feel like November flew by and December is about the same, and there is so much to do!

It’s already snowing sooo much here, but we are headed to Cali for our Christmas vacation and let me tell you, it could not come sooner because I’m already over the snow!

Also since baby J is a lot bigger than the last time we went to California, I’m hoping he will enjoy the beach a little more, I can already foresee me trying to prevent him from eating fistfuls of sand…lol

fur1.jpg

 

But in the spirit of post-black Friday and pre-gift giving, I wanted to do a little shop your closet post for those (or all) of us who are spending most of our money on other people rather than ourselves, because after all, that’s the best part of this holiday!

fur3

fur4

Sometimes I think we will be surprised to find that you probably already own a lot of cute winter clothes because let’s face it, sweaters really never go out of style!

One way to make some old clothes more current is to throw some trendy items with some classic, like I did with this fur coat and hat!

Luckily I already owned these, but the good thing about trends is usually you don’t have to spend as much on them, especially with all the holiday sales going on.

There is nothing wrong with treating yourself just a little (or a lot)!

Here are a couple suggestions for those of you who want to re-create this look and are currently missing some of these items from your closet!

Like I also mentioned before, a classic look never goes out of style, and you can never go wrong with throwing on a bog chunky sweater, jeans, and boots, especially in the winter.

This sweater just happens to be in a more trendy color, which is a great way to update the look!

yel6.jpg

Here is some of the items I am wearing, as well as other look-a likes that you can find to create your own version of the look.

Hello everyone and happy thanksgiving!

I just wanted to give you guys a short post giving you two outfit inspirations just in case your still trying to figure out what to wear on Turkey day!

fancy6.jpg

I find that some families tend to go a little more formal for their dinner, while others are casual, and some are somewhere in between.

My family tended to be more in the middle, like a little formal but not like super formal, but my husbands family is a wear what the heck you want, kind of family.

fancy1.jpg

Dress: JC Penny Shoes: Forver 21 Choker: Forever 21

The first outfit is definitely a formal one, but the good thing is that depending on the accessories you can make it more or less formal-looking.

fancy7.jpg

fancy9

fancy5

fancy2.jpg

fancy8

The second outfit, as you can tell, is very casual. But casual can still mean cute and trendy.

cas3.jpg

I love this varsity jacket, which you’ve seen me wear a couple times, because it really takes outfits to the next level.

cas1.jpg

The most important aspect of both of these outfits is that they are extremely comfortable. The plaid dress I wore is super flowy and ideal for stuffing yourself silly.

Hello beautiful people!

Today I’m coming to you from the 1960’s, at least that how I felt in this bell-sleeved dress that I’m wearing!

I actually had my eye on dresses like this for a while, and I decided to take the plunge with this little Forever 21 number.

bell6

 

bell5.jpg

I honestly really like it, and it makes me feel like I need to go twirl in a field somewhere while listening to the Beatles.

I was also really feeling this mauve color, especially with my red hair.

bell7.jpg

Also these boots that I have are a trend I’ve been dying to try, no thanks to the Kardashians, and let me tell you they do not disappoint!

I was so happy to find some affordable ones, once again thanks to Forever 21. They always seem to have my back.

They are also super comfy, and I think they give outfits a little bit of a trendy-sexy vibe. I don’t usually use that word, but hey, nothing is wrong with being sexy!

If you wanted to dip a little into these trends as well, I’ve included my exact outfit as well as some other very cute options!

What’s up y’all?!

Sorry, I never really know what to say at first, LOL. But I hope everyone is hanging in there after the mess of this election, and I promised that is the last I will mention it because I know we all need a break from that for a while!

This week I decided to put together this fun and short post about remixing clothing items you already own.

jack8

img_4641

Jacket: Walmart Dress: Forever 21 Leggings: Target Boots: Forever 21 Hat: Target 

jack5

Sweater: H&M Skirt: Forever 21 Choker: Can’t remember (LOL)

I personally feel that items in your wardrobe should be multi-functional and work with other clothing in your closet.

jack3

That’s something I try to remember when I’m buying clothes; I like to think to myself, “What else does this go with? Is it more than one thing? Can I dress it up or down??!”

If the answer is yes to all of these questions I will usually not hesitate in getting it, but if it seems to be no then I’ll probably put it back and think about it some more.

jack7

img_4673

jack4

That’s what motivated me to buy this black denim jacket, I knew that it would go with multiple things in my closet and be a great staple for the winter that I could dress up or down.

jack1

Here I am wearing it two ways; one is a little bot more casual and grunge inspired, the next is a little more formal and church/office appropriate.

So next time you see something you really want, I invite you to ask yourself these questions and see if what you want is really worth it.

Hope you have a great rest of the week and keep an eye out for the next post!

Double denim and a comfy sweater

Leave a reply
dd2.jpg

Sweater: DI Pants: Forever 21 (old) Shoes: Rue 21 Jacket: DI

Hello lovlies!

Hope everyone has had a great week and is as excited as I am about it being Friday!!!

As a stay at home mom I’m not excited about Friday because it means I get a break, because the truth is moms never get breaks, but because it means the end of a week and the start of a new one.

As odd as that sounds, I always look forward to starting new weeks because it means I can do things that I didn’t accomplish the week before; a time to actually accomplish goals that probably had to get pushed aside the previous week.

This has been especially true with a teething baby, and a total of 15 hours of sleep for the entire week.

Anyways, enough ramblings, let’s talk about this outfit

As I mentioned on my Instagram (If you don’t follow me you should, @endowedwithfahion) I wanted to incorporate a comfy sweater into this weeks post because we are now knee deep into sweater season, so I know we all need a little inspiration with our favorite fall/winter staple.

dd1

dd6.jpg

One of the easiest/cutest combos that you can just throw together during the cold months is a sweater, some cute jeans, and a nice pair of boots.

dd7.jpg

For this outfit however, I decided to take it to the next level by adding the denim on denim trend with my cute DIY over sized denim jacket.

If you want to see how I got this cute jacket, check out the post here.

dd5.jpg

That’s the great thing about a classic outfit, if you start off with a cute basic you can throw in a trend and it just turns that outfit up a notch.

dd9.jpg

dd4

Oh and I forgot to mention, this adorable sweater cost me a total of $3!!

Gosh, I love a great deal!

So I hope everyone enjoyed this post and that it inspires you to pull out that sweater and throw together this outfit for yourself!

Three personalities

Leave a reply

Hello everyone!!

Sorry I was MIA last week but I’m back, and with one of my favorite posts that I’ve ever done!

It’s probably because it involves a cheta-print fo-fur coat, or because it features three that’s right, THREE, different outfits!

Gotta love options!

I decided since the dreaded winter months are basically upon us (why?!?) I would give you some great outwear ideas, and let’s face it one of the only redeeming qualities of the cold is cute coats.

The first look that I came up with is what I call classic:

classic 2.jpg

Coat: Gap (See similar bellow) Hat: H&M Sweater: Thrifted  Jeans: Simply Be Shoes: Old Navy

The second, preppy:

prep2.jpg

Coat: Old Navy (Similar bellow) Onsie: H&M Skirt: Old Navy Shoes: Walmart

And the third, trendy (my favorite!):

cheeta 2.jpg

Coat: Forever 21 Overalls: Simply Be Shirt: Forever 21 Shoes: Copper and Pot

The first look I called classic, because you can never go wrong with a camel colored trench style.

It’s a look that will never go out of style, and looks good with a lot of different winter looks.

classic 3.jpg

classic4.jpg

classic 5.jpg

The second look I called preppy, because it has more of a girly, vintage vibe with it’s pattern, color, and collar.

prep3.jpg

This is, however, still a very classic look and will look super cute with dresses or skirts as I demonstrated here.

I also really love these combat boots with a sock look, and in the color brown!

It makes them look less tough looking than regular combat boots, but they still have a rugged feel.

I also did some fun milkmaid braids for this look, which is such a cute and east hairstyle to do btw!

OMG isn’t this leopard coat so fun?!

Yep that’s right, 12 bucks. Thanks Forever 21!

Shopping your own closet

Leave a reply

Hello lovely people!

So I said in my previous post that I would be talking about fall coats, but I decided to change things up a bit! (Don’t worry that will be coming next week)

img_0945

Something that I was (thankfully) taught from my mom at a young age was the importance of shopping your own closet.

What does that mean exactly?

Well, coming from someone who owns lots of clothing (and I mean a lot lol) it’s important to not always get caught up on buying the next trend or more clothes but rather to go into your own closet and see what you already have!

IMG_0941.jpg

Sorry about the dirt on my leg, my husband forgot to let me know it was there lol

The best thing about shopping your own closet is you may be surprised to find you already own some of the newest trends, or something very similar. Because let’s face it, in fashion most things come back around!

You definitely have to be careful, because there are times you need to get rid of clothes. Whether it be because you just need the space or the clothes are just past their prime.

IMG_0934.jpg

But if you keep a piece of clothing you really love, or fits really well, or is just a classic piece, chances are you can probably use it again when the season comes around.

Take what I am wearing for example; this was a dress that I found in my cold weather bin, as well as this mustard sweater I got from a clothing swap party.

img_0930

When I paired it with some leggings, dark booties, an adorable hat, and thick velvet choker, I knew I had a great fall outfit!

Plus fall florals are a huge trend this year, so I was able to tap into that.

SO be open to finding the goodies stashed right in your own bedroom!

IMG_0961.jpg

Also, I need to take a second to talk about this beautiful pumpkin patch my husband and I visited with baby J.

IMG_0963.jpg

My husband and baby J!

IMG_0943.jpg

It was a beautiful day and I got some great pictures, and Baby J had so much fun picking out his very first pumpkin!

IMG_0964.jpg

Well I hope you all enjoy saving some money by shopping your closet, and stay tuned for next week’s post!

Oversized denim and DIY

3 comments

To all you mommy bloggers out there….kudos!

It’s hard getting a post out there with a little one squirming around wanting all your attention.

jacket3

Even as I type, I’m trying to breast feed and put the finishing touches on this post (TMI??)!!

Well mommy life aside, I tried something out of my comfort zone for this weeks blog post, and that was a DIY.

Confession, I am not a very crafty person. I try to be, but it always seems to come out totally wrong.

That being said I do love a good bargain, and it seems at times it’s cheaper to go and do something yourself!

jacket2

And that was the motivation behind this DIY, affordability!

I’ve been loving the over-sized, boyfriend/vintage style jean jacket trend, but every time I’ve looked for ones online or in stores they have been pretty pricey.

jacket5

So one day I thought to myself,”I bet there are some great old denim jackets at DI,” and I was right!

The particular one I found was darker than what I wanted, so I decided to bleach it myself to the color I wanted.

Here are the steps I took if you want to customize this trend for yourself for a fraction of the price!

Step 1:

img_4166

Gather your supplies of the jacket of your choice, regular bleach, a stirring tool, gloves, clothes you don’t mind getting stained, and a bucket.

*In my case I used my tub, which also works too

Step 2: 

img_4178

 

Fill your bucket or tub full of water, then mix in about half of the bottle of bleach. The scent will be very strong, so make sure you are outside or in a well ventilated area.

Step 3:

img_4179

Using gloved hands and your stirring tool, soak the entire jacket in the bleach/water mixture, making sure it get’s completely soaked.

Then just let it sit for as long as you want, remembering that the longer you leave it in, the lighter the color.

Step 4:

Ring out the jacket using gloved hands, and throw it in the washing machine, where the excess die will wash out. Then throw it in the dryer, and wa-lah! You’ve got your customized jacket!

Here are the results of my particular bleach wash:

Before:

img_4170

img_4177

After:

img_4328

img_4329

So there it is! I actually really liked how it turned out, and I think it looked great with this outfit!

And btw, the total cost of this was TEN DOLLARS!!

jacket6

This is a mock-turtleneck dress that I love from Target, and it’s a beautiful rust color, although in pictures it reads more red.

I also wanted to include some jacket options just in case you wanted to partake of this trend but you don’t have the time/energy/space to find one and bleach it yourself.

Don’t worry I got you girl!

Well I hope you’ve been inspired to save a little mula and try this DIY for yourself!

Also just an FYI, most of the clothes I am wearing are either not available anymore or I got them a while ago, so I won’t be linking them as usual in my last pic of the post, but the suggestions I have above are linked so you can for sure re-create this look!

Hello lovelies!
For today’s post I thought it would be fun to take one item of clothing, in this case a sweater dress, and style it two different ways!
The weather in Idaho has been very bipolar, so I felt a little silly taking these pictures because it was 80 degrees outside.
But hey, fashion over function, ammirite’?
varsity2.jpg
Something isn’t going to go in my closet unless I know I can wear it multiple ways, and that is why I own a sweater dress.
Sweater dresses are super versatile, and a staple for Fall/Winter!
The great thing is that sweater dresses come in multiple styles and colors, so there is something for everyone.
comfy3.jpg
comfy2.jpg
For the first outfit I went more casual, pairing it with this beautiful bomber jacket from Forever 21 and some white tennis shoes.
For the second outfit I went a little dressier, pairing the dress with a dark floral scarf and some wine-colored boots I’ve been loving from Rue 21.
comfy1.jpg
Here are a couple examples of some I found, in case you wanted to find one for yourself.
Cute sweater dress style

The one that I am wearing is from Lauren Conrad Kohl’s collection, and it’s not available anymore or I would have found it for you guys!
But the ones I found above are similar, or in styles that I’ve had an eye on as well.
face1.jpg
Also, if you didn’t notice, I changed my hair again!
I was feeling red for fall, and so I went to get it done but it didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted (aka a dark purple silver??!) But I fixed it, and it came out a little better.
If you want to know the whole story, follow me on Instagram (@endowedwithfashion) and watch my Insta story. Plus you should follow me anyways, because I post fun things daily!
Well I hope you enjoyed this styling session and again please follow me on social media (Twitter: @tamvintage21 Facebook: Endowed with fashion) or comment here for what you would want to see on the blog!

Not so basic basics

Leave a reply
basic2.jpg
Hello beautiful people!
As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy!
Being a mother has brought so many new joys and challenges to my life, ones that have definitely meant a few adjustments here and there.
One of those adjustments is the way I dress, because let’s face it, as a new mom you tend to want to be in comfy and flexible clothing (due to lack of sleep, bending over a TON, and spit up,etc.)
So although there are days when I for sure reside in sweatpants/leggings/yoga pants, I have also come to rely on basics that I know will look cute and put together, but are easy to throw on!
basic1.jpg
Fall is a great season for these aforementioned basics, especially because of sweater weather.
I mean who doesn’t love a comfy, soft, and fuzzy sweater?!
One of those important basics is a jean jacket, and this season jean jackets are very in, meaning there are a variety of shades and styles to choose from.
basic4.jpg
basic5.jpg
I’ve had my eye on a true jean color in a baggy, boyfriend style.
This one I have from H&M I’ve had for a while, and let me tell you, I use this baby so much, and it’s a great way to pull together any look!
Here are some I’ve found that range from a classic style to more trendy, so you can choose what you like!
basics

 

basics by tamsyn-turner featuring chelsea boots
Some other great fall basics that you can easily throw on are a great cropped sweater, a nice and simple bodysuit, and a cozy turtleneck.
I has wanted to try a bodysuit for a while but couldn’t find a style I thought would quite cover enough and be flattering, but I was able to find this great one from H&M and it is so easy and versatile!
Also I know  my boots from Forever 21 will get used  a LOT this season and they were pretty affordable for how cute they are!

Fall of 1999

Leave a reply

fall2.jpg

Hello lovelies!

Sorry it’s been so long, but i’ve been a bit pre-ocupied with certain life events (aka having a baby) but that’s another story for another day!

What I can’t believe is that it’s already fall, especially because it was this time last year that we were announcing we were pregnant with baby J! My how time flies.

If there is one thing that a baby does to you it is appreciating non-maternity clothing.

I am just starting to be able to fit into my pre-baby clothes and boy am I excited!

I’m not 100% where I want to be, but really who is?? So I’ve just decided to rock what I’ve got.

Something I’ve really been into for the past couple months and finally got a hand on, are overalls.

I honestly thought this was one trend I might skip seeing that I rocked them pretty much all the time from ages 2 until 10, but I was able to find a pair that was both flattering and didn’t remind me too much of 1999.

fall5.jpg

fall3.jpg

I found this adorable pair on a wonderful website called Simply Be, which is actually a British company I randomly discovered. (Much to my delight!)

What I like about Simply Be is they are a “plus size” company, but they have a super wide range of sizes and their clothes are made for average sized women, which this curvy girl surely appreciates!

fall6.jpg

fall4.jpg

And I forgot to mention one very important and big difference in my life…I’m a blonde!!

I made the leap to platinum a couple months ago, and I haven’t stopped doing fun things with it since.

I am currently sporting light aqua hair at the moment, which you will see in the next post, so keep an eye out!

fall8.jpg

fall7.jpg

Here are some great options for those of you on the cute overall hunt, especially because overalls are a great item from that transition from warm weather to crisp fall weather.

Overalls for Fall

Either add a cute t-shirt underneath, or as it gets colder, a nice cropped sweater.

Till next time!

Hello lovlies!!

As we are now almost two months into the new year, I wanted to make sure I was at least accomplishing one of my resolutions, which was to get back to this blog!

I honestly have wanted to post many, many, times but it seems that I have let time and life get in the way of that. (Sorry!)

But there have been a lot of VERY BIG things happening in my life lately, including graduating from BYU-Idaho (Yay!), to finding out I was pregnant with our first child (double yay!), and starting a wonderful internship in Salt Lake City.

1005553_1142961712382938_8884177826380677076_n

Plus, tbh, my first trimester of pregnancy was reaaaalll rough so I wasn’t looking my best.(Read about it here) I also was stressed out of my mind because it was my last semester of school.

12109798_10206020211117604_6946059176868113649_o

Here is the fun video of us revealing our babies gender:

 

Even though things are still a little cray-cray I really wanted to back to this blog because even though I don’t know who this is really reaching, this blog inspires me and my life to work harder and better.

Here are some photos from the past couple months, as well as a new outfit post featuring my lovely pregnant belly!

Actually, black is always the new black!

But for this outfit, it was the orange earrings that made a statement.

When I saw these earrings, they immediately caught my eye. But at the same time I hesitated, because I was not sure I really had anything to go with bright orange.

In the end, I was completely wrong!

These earrings are awesome, and really go with so much, especially this black dress.

This was also something that I hesitated to buy, because the slip that came with it was really short.

But we endowed girls know that where there is a will there is a way, and I found a way!

I am not usually a fan of the shirt-under-the-dress look (a little too 90s/2000’s for me) but for this dress I made an exception and I think it worked out!

I also wore a knee length black slip, and wa-lah! Cute and modest dress!

I know what you might be thinking, “black and orange, so halloween!” but in reality if paired right, orange and black really do go well together.

Black is just one of those colors that is always classy and always will be fashionable. Even in the summertime!

This dress is an example of that, with its sheer lace and flowy fabric.

So for you endowed girls out there, don’t be afraid to get creative in making something G-appropriate, it can be done!

Also, if you are feeling adventurous, try a black and orange combo! I promise you will walk away fashionably satisfied.

Hope you got some inspiration, and keep your eyes peeled for some more endowed fashion ideas!

Until next time, bye darlings!

Surprise!!!

Yes, here is the big reveal….I have red hair!

Now I know what you might be thinking, “Did she really change her hair color just to be red, white, and blue?” and the answer is most definitely no, it was just a happy coincidence!

So yeah that is the new change that is going on in my life right now, and I have to say it has got me fired up! Literally.

This flaming hot red has been pretty fun, and I feel as if my personality is just a bit more feisty. It could be because I’m already that way, or the hair. Let us just say a little bit of both.

So the eve before the 4th of July is when I made the big change, and I have to say it did really go well with all my combos that day.

I don’t know about you guys, but I love celebrating the 4th of July!

For me it always meant sun, fun, family, and fireworks, all things I thoroughly enjoy!

And this year was no different!

This was the outfit I wore to watch the fireworks show that they put on by the Snake River in Idaho Falls, along with my hubby and some friends.

We even got to light off some sparklers!! I was like a little kid, and it was great!

This dress kept me cool and comfy, and all the walking around for food and a good spot to look at the fireworks was easy in my cute white tennies!

This was also the first time I used this adorable purse, which was given to my by my best friend and her family at my bridal shower. (Shout out to you Kimmy!)

So overall it was a great day with a great outfit!

I hope all of you had a great Independence Day, and I hope you enjoyed my big reveal and flash back.

Come check back for my next post featuring my Sunday best.

Till next time!

Bye bye!

Hello Darlings!

Sorry for being MIA, it is the end of the semester and the last weeks of school are super crazy-town-banana-pants! (My way of saying super crazy.)

With everything that has been going on, it is safe to say not all my outfits have been exactly on point, but hey, it is finals week so what can you expect right!?

Just kidding, finals are no excuse to drop the ball fashion wise, and this blog is definitely motivation for me!

Luckily the best thing about summer fashion is that it is easy breezy, meaning you can throw on a cute dress, some wedges, and you are good to go!

That is definately what I was going for in this weeks outfit, and I think it worked pretty well!

This lovely peach dress is super comfy, and the color is very flattering.

I added the flower crown and the backpack for a little flirty and fun twist.

After all, fashion is about being creative and fun!

The best part of this backpack is that it looks super polished but makes carrying the essentials super easy.

I love that these type of bags are back!

Functional fashion is a yes in my book!

Well I hope for the rest of you that are dealing with finals that all goes well, and that you look your best as the school year comes to an end!

And for those of you out of school already, play in the water for me!

Check back for my next post because big changes are coming, and it is both fun and fiery.

Till next time, adios!

“I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want…”

I’ll tell you what I want, some modified 90’s fashion!

Which is kind of what I got with this outfit, especially the platforms that I was wearing.

I was feeling especially Spice Girl-ish in my ensemble, and that is why I have called this outfit “Posh Spice”.

Let us face it, Posh was the best dressed Spice Girl and I think she would have approved of this outfit, crop-top and all.

Shirt: Pac Sun Skirt: Forever 21: Shoes: Rue21 Necklace: Kohls

I know what you are thinking, “An endowed girl wearing a crop-top?!” but I am here to tell you that is possible, you just need to make sure to follow a few necessary steps to make sure not to look like you are wearing some weird white shirt underneath your shirt.

First, I always buy my crop-top a size larger than I normally would. This is so the length will be just a tid bit longer.

Second, make sure to wear a nude-colored shirt under your crop-top. This is so if your top creeps up a bit you will avoid revealing your religion and that odd white undershirt thing I was talking about before.

Third, I find for us endowed girls this style is best worn with a pencil skirt or high waisted jeans because then you can layer your crop-top slightly over the jeans or skirt. It looks really flattering and compliments both those looks perfectly!

Hope this helps all you endowed girls out there to get your 90’s on and try out a crop top!

After all, it is important to “Spice up you life” every once in a while!

Here are also a couple other of my inspirations for wearing a crop top, and not from 1995.

Until next time!

Au revoir!

After the wedding chop

Leave a reply

Sooooo……I chopped my hair off!!!

I am calling it the after-the-wedding-chop.

Because, let’s face it, most girls want long hair for their wedding!

For me I had about 8 months to grow out my hair before the big day (I know forever in mormon time) but my hair grows UBER slowly so it only got barely past my shoulders.

But it still worked out ok, and I was happy to have that length on my wedding.

At the same time, I am a person that get’s super complacent with my hair, and I was itching for a change.

Most of you have probably noticed the trend that has been going on for the last couple months of celebrities chopping their hair, whether it be a pixie, bob, or the infamous lob.

lucy-hale-short-hair

laurenchop

This has especially occurred amongst celebs who are newlyweds, and decided to do the after-the-wedding-chop.

These beautiful ladies were the inspiration for my new do, as well as Julianne Hough’s beautiful short haircut.

Julianne-Hough-proves-smoky-eyes-bold-brows-classic-pair

So for all of you out there who are thinking about cutting your hair….DO IT!

Especially now that it is hot outside, it is nice to not have heavy hair lying on your neck.

Also, it will always grow back!

Hope this inspires a little change in your lives, and until next time!

Toodleloo!

Dress: Old Navy Shoes: Forever 21 Necklace: Target

Hello everyone!

It has definitely been an eventful weekend, but hey those are my favorite kind!

This weekend was the perfect blend of work, friends, fun and sun, but that is why I am sad it is over!

I was just discussing with my husband the concept of Sunday blues, and we both agreed that we have a raging case of them. Why must the weekend end?!?

Alas, it is OK because I know that the week is the time to be productive and get things done to be able to look forward to the end of the week and the time to relax.

I wonder if we would appreciate the weekends as much if we didn’t have the weekdays in between?

My theory is still a resounding YES!

Well enough on my weekend rant, let’s talk about one of my favorite clothing staples: the polkadot dress.

I definitely consider the polka-dot dress a staple for any wardrobe, especially in the summer and especially in navy.

I just think this type of dress has the perfect amount of retro meets classy meets girly. In the navy color it has a little bit of a nautical flare as well which is great to me!

And as a benefit to all you endowed girls out there, I find it is pretty easy to find one that covers all the necessary areas.

For example this dress is from Old Navy and was a whopping $12. Talk about steal!!

It is also super comfy!

So on this past hot and summery Sunday I could not help but throw this baby on, put on a flash of red lipstick, some nude high-heeled sandals, and wa-la! Outfit heaven.

Something to keep in mind with this type of dress is that I like to keep the accessories pretty minimal as not to overwhelm the pattern and look like a creature from a Dr. Seuss book.

For this outfit I chose I pearl statement necklace to kind of go with the retro-vibe, and that was pretty much all I wore.

The shoes are what I like to call my naked shoes, they are these awesome high-heeled sandals with ankle and toe straps from Forever 21. They were a modern twist I decided to throw in there, and i think it worked out.

Well I hope everyone feels a little better about this weekend ending, and I’ll let you all now about some big changes that occurred over this weekend in my next post!

Till next time darlings!

What I’m feeling this week

Leave a reply
Hello everyone!
I don’t know how it is where you live, but here in Idaho temperatures have seemed to skyrocket overnight!
Now, don’t get me wrong I am not complaining, I love the heat and sun.
Usually in hot weather dresses are my go to (see this post here), but I was looking around the internet and Pinterest to find some other warm weather outfit ideas and I stumbled upon white pants.
I have always been a fan of a classic pair of white pants, and I am honestly a believer that white pants are a staple for the summer.
Since white is a neutral, they can really go with anything!
Dress them up, dress them down, preppy, girly, rocker, they are so versatile!
So I’ve provided some inspiration for those of you out there who want to know how to wear your white pants.
I personally love how this year the trend for white pants seems to be a little more of a relaxed fit with some distress on them.
But a traditional skinny pair is always good too, and is the kind I own.
Sorry for the short post, it has been a crazy week!
But I wanted to share what I have been feeling this week, and I hope you all enjoy and are inspired to get a pair of white pants of your own!
Till next time!

Hello everyone!

This was an interesting week, I randomly got what I am going to call a summer cold, which kind of knocked me down for a couple days.

But you know what they say, you can’t keep a good woman down!

Actually I don’t know who says that, and I don’t know about the good woman thing either, but it is true that I did not let the cold keep me down!

I wore this outfit on the day when I actually started to feel like myself again, which also led me to feeling more adventurous and wearing my hat.

I actually love hats, but for some reason I do have to be in a certain mood to feel confident enough to wear one, especially because I feel that sometimes my hat looks makes me look like Indiana Jones.

Not that anything is wrong with that, he did look fabulous and handsome in his hat.

But Indiana Jones aside, this dress is both cute and super comfortable.

It has kind of a loose fit, which I was not sure if I was going to like when I first found the dress, but once I tried it on I totally loved it!

Plus being an endowed girl means that if the dress both covers my garments properly and is still cute I most likely have to buy it. (At least that is what I always tell myself….)

This week I have also been thinking a lot about the temple, and how special that place really is, and that I need to get my endowed but there more often.

That is going to be a goal of mine for the summer, especially once school gets out and my list of excuses for not going gets smaller and smaller.

Well, I hope everyone had a good week, and I think I’ll have my next post be about summer essentials for the endowed girl.

Because as my Summertime Sadness post addressed, when you are endowed summertime fashion involves being both creative and doing your research, and I want to help with that process!

This is after all the reason for this blog!

Till next time darlings!

Hello friends!

So it is Monday.

The bain of the week, beginning of work, school, no fun, etc.

But you know what makes Monday just a little more bearable?

Man crush Monday.

I know that is usually an Instagram/Twitter thing, but I decided for the sake of this post I am carrying it over to this blog.

So obviously my man crush Monday goes out to my handsome hubby, and you all get to witness why!

I also thought it would be good to feature a little Men’s fashion as well.

Now, something to know about my husband is a) He is not as passionate about fashion as I am, and b) He hates getting his picture taken (boys are so silly right?!?)

But he was very kind to me, and went along with my shenanigans, which is one of the many reasons I love him!

So we took these photos while we were visiting his brother and his wife over memorial weekend.

It was actually sunny that weekend, which was nice, hence the sun and sunnier outfits.

Hubby was looking especially patriotic, with his blue and white striped shirt, navy pants, and red tie.

Dapper and adorable!

Like I also mentioned before, since the sun was out I thought it would be a good time to bring out this white dress from DownEast as well as my flower crown.

Nothing feels more like warmer weather than a flower crown!

I also got to wear this awesome new sandals from Old Navy, they were super comfy, had a little heel on them, and were super cute! So all around a great purchase and I was excited to get to wear them.

Well that was my surprise to you guys, to show of my husband a little bit and have him make a small appearance, hopefully this won’t be the last time!

Well I hope you enjoyed my personal Man Crush Monday, and also a man crush of your own!

Tootles!

Blouse: Lauren Conrad collection for Kohls Pants: Jeggings from Walmart Earrings: Forever 21 Shoes: Target Nail Polish: Sky by Hard Candy

Hello everyone!

So after looking over my recent posts I realized something.

I have never posted a casual outfit!

Although I love dresses, and they really do make up most of my wardrobe, I am also fond of pants also!

Let us face it, sometimes wearing garments with pants can be a little tricky (I am talking about that pesky line that appears) but it is possible!

That is why I thought I should feature this outfit, in which I am wearing my elusive pants.

Technically they are jeggings, but I am a believer that jeggings are pants too. (And yes, you can wear jeggings with garments, the secret is ankle length ;D)

Something that I love about this outfit is that it is suuuper comfortable.

I also love the colors, I have always been a fan of light pastels.  And with the warmer weather, it has been a perfect time to wear them.

The nail polish I am wearing in this post, Sky by Hard Candy, goes perfectly with these pastel colors and is the perfect shade of blue! It also came with this adorable sky blue heart ring!

Although it has been pretty warm we have been receiving a ton of rain in Idaho lately, so the day I wore this outfit was one of the few dry days we have had.

I’ll post a couple other casual outfit ideas to inspire everyone for the days you just want to be comfy and cute!

Sorry but for the short post, but don’t worry I have a lengthier post coming and I also may or may not have a special guest featured in it!

Stay tuned to find out!

Till next time my darlings!

Dress: DownEast Shoes: H&M Earrings: Walmart Bracelet: Pac Sun

Happy Memorial day weekend everyone!!

Hope you all got to take a little vacation from life, heaven knows we all need that every once in a while!

My husband and I had the opportunity to visit his brother and wife and chillax a little, which was soooo great!

We also got to go to one of my favorite stores on earth, IKEA. There is something about that place that is so magical, almost like a home decor and goods Disneyland.

We were looking for a table, and I am happy to say we found one that will perfectly fit into our cute and tiny newlywed kitchen!

It is kinda fun furnishing a home!

Also when we were in Utah we went on some other fun adventures, which I will post about later this week as well as our Memorial Sunday attire.

Well enough about my shenanigans, let’s talk about this outfit.

I feel that every fashionably endowed girl always has a go to dress, one that is long enough to cover the essentials but still cute and classy. This is definitely one of those dresses!

I am a sucker for dark florals also, which is why I got this dress.

What adds some spice to the life of this dress, and does for any outfit, is the accessories.

A  surprise to everybody might be to find out that those earrings are from Walmart! Hey, sometimes great things are found in obscure places.

It is not one of my most adventurous outfits, but hey I felt great wearing it so that’s really what counts!

Once again I hope everyone had a great memorial day weekend, and I hope you enjoyed my plan jane-ness!

More endowed with fashion inspirations to come!

Yes, it is that time.

The time when I talk about THE DRESS.

Obviously I am talking about that one dress that almost every girl dreams about growing up, wondering if it is going to be as perfect as she imagines it will, as magical, as fairytale like.

And I am here to tell you, it was all of the above!

Now, on the other hand there was soooo much more to my wedding day that the dress, like the fact I was marrying my best friend and the man of my dreams in the holy temple located in my city of San Diego.

My wedding dress was just the icing on top of the cake on that day.

What I loved most about my wedding dress, was the fact that it was exactly how I wanted it, so in turn I felt comfortable and beautiful which is important on the day your are getting married.

I was definitely someone who knew what she wanted in regards to a wedding dresses, and I chalk it up to disney movies, Grace Kelly, Kate Middleton, and Say Yes to the Dress. (Yes, I admit at times I would watch that show religiously.)

I’ve always wanted a kind of vintage flair to my dress, and especially long sleeves.

I wanted sleeves because a) I was already endowed and wanted my dress to be temple appropriate anyways and b) Did you see Kate Middleton’s dress on her wedding day? I literally cried I thought it was so beautiful, and her gorgeous lace sleeves made my resolve to have some like that on my own wedding day more abundantly clear.

So to those of you out there picking a dress, just remember it is a dress of a lifetime, so choose wisely.

Remember that you are the one wearing it, and you need to be comfortable in it.

Also the precious look that your groom will give you when he sees you in it for the first time can’t be beat either.

Hope you enjoyed the pics of my gown, I know anytime I get to stare at that dress again the magic if that special day comes back to me a tiny bit.

Here is a picture of my wedding dress inspirations just in case you need some too.

Au Revoir!

Shirt: Dillards Skirt: H&M Necklace: Walmart (Yep thats right!) Shoes: Amazon Purse: Betsy Johnson

Something I love about Sundays is that fact that no matter what the weather in the morning, by the afternoon the sun seems to come out and make its presence.

And that makes this California girl very happy!

That was definitely the case yesterday. It was raining all week and I’m pretty sure it was raining early Sunday morning, but by the time the afternoon rolled around there was that sun!

This showing of the sun was an inspiration to my outfit yesterday.

I have been kind of happy that yellow is making a comeback, just because when done right it can be such a nice and happy color!

I am definitely more of a fan of the muted yellows, like a buttercup or light-custard.

My skirt is a little on the darker yellow side, but I still love it.

This skirt was actually a hand-me-down from my most fashionable mother, but there always seems a time when I can pull it out and wear it again.

Plus, this skirt is suuuuper comfortable, a reason why I took it with me on my mission. In fact, it is one of the few skirts that I kept from it, which goes to show a) how much I love it, and b) how it has lasted and will last forever.

A trend I have also noticed, and one I wanted to jump on and try,  is combining this wonderfully sunny color with mint.

As you can see from my outfit I decided to try it out, and I have to say I am for sure a fan!

Also it might or might not be the colors I have decided to use in my house….maybe I’ll show you guys sometime.

Well I hope that you enjoyed your Sunday SUN day and until next time!

Tah tah!

Summertime (and Spring) Sadness

1 comment

Don’t let the title of this post fool you, I love Spring and Summer!

In fact, I grew up in sunny southern California only minutes from the beach, so Spring and Summer are the only seasons I’ve lived in my entire life.

So why the sadness then?

Spring and Summer are the time to bear skin, and that can be tough for an endowed woman.

However, this has never stopped me from enjoying the warm weather, and looking cute and classy at the same time! And with no religion showing!

I honestly have one secret for getting through the heat: Dresses.

Dresses are honestly the key!

There are so many cute options out there, and nothing says classy and chic in the summertime like a beautiful and breezy summer dress.

Going to the pool? Throw on a dress. Going to the beach? Throw on a dress. Going on Vaca? Throw on a dress!

Catch my drift?

So here are a couple dresses to inspire you for the next couple months of fun in the sun!

Enjoy!

Dresses Golore!

First things first….

I’m the realest.

Secondly. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a.k.a. a Mormon.

Thirdly, I am endowed.

Now for those of you who are not members of the church you are probably thinking, “Endowed? Does she mean well-endowed? Like does she have a big butt or something?”

Well in a certain truth you would be right, because I am well endowed in the caboose area.  But for members of my faith, being endowed means something completely different.

But, that is an explanation for a different day, and please feel free to comment if you have questions about it now.

If you are a member of my faith, and one who is also endowed, you know that means that the way you dress is slightly effected, and that is what this blog is here to help with.

I love fashion!

Let’s be honest, if you have ever seen my closet you know that clothes are my life.

So I knew from the moment I was endowed that my clothing choices were going to change, and in a sense be limited.

Now let me clarify¬†that I ¬†didn’t mean that I myself, and my creativity, and love of clothes was limited. But the fact that not everyone in the world, and especially the commercial clothing stores/fashion industry, cater to women who are endowed.

But I never let it stop me from being fashionable, and neither should that let you!

This blog will be a guide to all the endowed women out there, and also any other woman who chooses to dress more on the modest side.

I will be your helper in finding things to wear, and from places we are all familiar with.

I have to admit, I prefer to buy clothes that I don’t have to modify to make modest, which requires a little bit of searching. But that search is always worth it!

This blog will show you that you don’t have to look too far, and that being endowed is ALWAYS a blessing.

Looking en vogue is not something that ever needs to be compromised!

After all the Lord always provides the way, am I right?!

So enjoy, comment, and let’s start the journey to being fashionably endowed women!
