Resurrection Sunday is quickly approaching and being that this is the holiest day for those of the Christian faith that believe in the Resurrection of Christ, you want to go rocking your Sunday’s best. Church is NOT about what you wear, definitely come as you are, but I have a few suggestions that could help you put your best foot forward to thank Jesus for making the ultimate sacrifice.

It is hard finding “church appropriate” pieces these days. I know many of you would say, “But you just said come as you are??” Yes I did, but when it comes to church I’m hold somewhat of a conservative view about attire. If you would wear it to a club, then most likely you shouldn’t wear it to work. I hold this same sentiment for the workplace. It is hard finding the right dress for many occasions because many designers and brands are opting for very form fitting dresses, pants, and skirts. Therese nothing wrong with showing off your curves, but there is a time and a place for everything.

Ok, now back to the post…….

Would you rock the Riley skirt or Daphne dress?

I love maxi dresses and skirts for the spring and summer. They are low maintenance and very comfortable. The best part about them is that you can get them in a variety of colors, prints, and fabrics. Now I think I’m getting a little too old for crop tops. I know some people may say there isn’t an age limit on croptops, but I would have to respectfully disagree. I actually own a few crop tops but I either wear them with a pair of high-waisted jeans or shorts, or a high-waisted skirt, unless I’m at the beach. Sometimes I may put on a cute cami and people are like what’s the point. As you get older your fashion focus starts to change. I try not to buy crop tops that are too cropped if you know what I mean. If it looks like it could be a bra or that my bra shows underneath, I don’t buy it. I still love the look, but I try to make it fit my style.

What to Wear: Maxi and Crop Tops

Take a look at a few maxi skirts and crop tops that I wouldn’t mind adding to my wardrobe for the warmer weather.

Hey my loves! Let’s start the year off right with some of my top picks in fashion, hair, and beauty for the month of January!

Pictures129Many stores are releasing their spring clothes, but we all know that it doesn’t get warm until the end of April/May. March feels like winter to me so I will still be wearing my sweaters and riding boots which is why these are my picks for January. I love the print on the Fair Isle Sweater from Forever 21 and I was sold on these riding boots with the chain detail and mixed textures. You can never go wrong with a satchel bag, and this Rachel Zoe bag is sleek and chic! A statement necklace can glam up any look this can even be paired with the pink cable knit sweater. Lastly, the CoverGirl Blast FlipStick Duo in Flashy is one of my favorite lipsticks. It’s a highly pigmented purple and I use the pink for a little ombre look. It is long lasting and even acts as a lipstain!
