Lemonade Lady

Happy Friday Lo'Catters! Let me start off by saying that after the marvelous work of art that was Lemonade, I didn't think Beyonce could make me love yellow anymore than I already did. But then...Beychella happened. 

After seeing the Queen, that is Beyonce, twirl around in that yellow bodysuit and cropped sweatshirt I knew what I had to do. Therefore, today's post will be dedicated to everything yellow. 

As the sun returns and its beautiful beams begin to shine down and warm our skin again, it's time that we embrace all that the color yellow has to offer. With that being said, I have prepared three different looks for you all. Let's get right into it!

Look 1: Urban Chic

Rainy Day Looks

Happy Saturday Lo'Catters! A little couture birdy told me April showers bring May flowers... and I felt that. The rain can be a little less than delightful but look on the bright side! Warm weather is upon us and I am so happy about that.

As the weather warms up and the rain falls I know it can be hard to put looks together but don't fret. I'm here to help. 

 JACKETS FOR A RAINY DAY:

A stylish jacket is the key way to look bomb but also stay protected from the rain on a gloomy day. Whether you're rocking a bright trench coat or an iridescent raincoat make sure to cover up.

 Clear Vinyl Trench Coat

Red Trench Coat

Checkered Trench Coat

 

T-SHIRTS:

A rainy day look wouldn't be whole without a too-die-for tee.

Say Yes to Saturation!

Happy Thursday Lo'Catters! I hope you are all as excited about this shining sun as I am! Spring is upon us, forreal this time! As the warm weather begins to creep up on us I think there's something you should now. Saturated colors are an ABSOLUTE must this season. When I say saturated, I mean colors that are very high in intensity. So a saturated red skirt would be very very red. Does that make sense? If not don't fret because I have prepared three different saturated spring time looks for you lovely and oh-so-loyal Lo'Catters. 

Let me know what you think! --xoxo

 

 

 

The Return Of The Fanny Pack

Happy Friday Lo'Catters! If you follow me on any of my social media platforms you know it's been Friday for me all week! I've been in Aruba living my best life, pics coming to a screen near you soon! I usually try to stay off of my electronics, unless it involves taking pics, when I'm on vacation. However, something has come up.. or back should I say. Sooo with that being said guess what?? The fanny pack is back sis! And better than ever I might add. 

The fanny pack/belt bag has popped back up on the scene and I couldn't be happier. Now don't get me wrong, I love a nice bag but sometimes a girl just needs to be hands-free. The cool thing about fanny packs is that they are so versatile. You can wear a fanny pack with a tracksuit, jeans or a dress. Versatility is key in all aspects of life, especially fashion.

With that being said, I have prepared three different fanny pack looks for you below. Enjoy and Happy FRI-YAY ladies!--xoxo

 

 

 

 

Weekend Finds: The Chill Edition

Happy Sunday loves. Sunday wouldn't be Sunday without a little online shopping. I've been on the hunt for some good deals all morning and I've found quite a few for you lovely Lo'Catters! So lets get right to it.

 If you haven't noticed already...faux fur is sort of my staple. Lo would't be Lo without some type of plush or stand-outish jacket. A statement jacket is something everyone should have in their wardrobe.  I'm also a lover of all things cute and comfy. So this grey crewneck was a must. Having a nice simple crewneck in your closet is crucial because you can pair it with almost anything.   You can never go wrong with a pair of distressed skinny jeans. They fit like a dream and they add a bit of sass and edge to your look.  Last but not least are the shoes. I think pairing heels with a chill outfit adds a little "umph" to the look.   Now lets shop this look!   Misguided  is having a sale!  These  Light Blue Distressed Jeans  are must! Plus...they are 50% with the use of a special code!  This bright orange 80's style  faux fur  from  ASOS  will not only make a statement but its always so cute!  This grey  Friends Logo Crew-Neck  from  Urban Outfitters  not only looks comfy but cute as well...cute and comfy...name a better duo!  These  I Spy Lace-Up boots  from  Nasty Gal  will tie this entire look together...not to mention Nasty Gal is STILL having a site wide sale!

Sneaker SZN!!

Happy Wednesday Lo'Catters! Today I want to talk about shoes...sneakers to be exact. Now... anyone who knows me knows about my long and sometimes draining love affair with shoes. I am a shoe addict through and through. Heels are usually my go to shoe. However, I always have, and always will, have a special affinity for sneakers. Sneakers are great because you can wear them with almost anything and I think this is often times forgotten! I don't think a lot of people know how much sass and spunk a sneaker can add to a look. BUT I'm here to help with that!

Today I have prepared three different sneakers looks for you all. I think it's important to have a versatile sense of style... so try one, or all, of these looks out ladies! Happy Wednesday loves...enjoy!

Weekday Date Night.. YES PLEASE!

Happy Thursday Lo'Catters! I hope all is well with you lovely ladies. It's Thursday which means the weekend is upon us! But before we start planning and prepping for the weekend... I have a quick question.

Am I the only one who enjoys weekday date nights? Going on date night on a Wednesday or Thursday is so fun to me. There isn't as much going and it's easy to find some really chill and trendy places to go because people don't usually go out on dates during the week. 

You can beat the crowd and go ice-skating at Maggie Daley Park. You could go on a hot cocoa date...if you do this you HAVE to go to Mindy's Hot Chocolate. You could also embrace your inner- kid and go to an arcade! There are so many places you can go to on weekday date.

No matter where you go you have to dress the part. And that's where I come in sis. Below are three different weekday date night looks! One for ice-skating. One for a hot cocoa date and one for an arcade date. Enjoy!--xoxo

Look 1:

Red Turtleneck Sweater

Red Fur

 Jeans

Satur-YAY: Weekend Deals

Happy Saturday ladies! As you all know, on Saturdays we shop. I've been on the hunt for some good deals all morning and I have found quite a few for you lovely Lo'Catters.

LO.JPG

In case you haven't noticed faux fur is my fav. Whether you're going on a romanic date, hanging out with your girls or just out doing a little retail therapy-by your lonesome- you can always wear a faux fur. There's literally so many different ways to style it.

I'm also a denim lover. Light wash, dark wash, skinny, boyfriend, ripped or not..I don't care. I just love a nice pair of jeans.

You can never go wrong with a statement tee. Pair it with jeans, cigarette pants or a skirt. Either way they always bring a look together!

Lastly, I wholeheartedly believe every woman should have pair of black sleek  booties in her closet.

With that being said i'm here to help you ladies shop this look!

Nasty gal is still having an 80% off site-wide sale.

These Black Booties are not only on sale but they the can also be worn on multiple occasions

Girls Night...I think so!

Happy Thursday Lo'Catters! It's almost Fri-YaY and I'm beyond excited. This week has really been one for the books. Meetings on meetings on meeting but as the week winds down I have decided that a date night with my girls is much needed. I love going out with girls on Thursdays because it's never too much going on yet you can still feel the weekend energy in the air and you can see it in everyone's eyes. 

Thursday girl nights are always chill. You and yours can go for a drink, get dinner or head on over to the Art Institute, it's free on Thursdays. Either way one thing is for sure, dress for the occasion!

When going for dinner I usually pair some jeans with a basic tee and nice fur jacket! When it comes to going for a drink I add a little more sass to my outfit. Trips to the art museum are my favorite, I usually try to unleash the Parisain princess from within when looking at art. So I'd probably grab a cute little beret to complete my outfit. I've created some looks for you lovely Lo'Catters to try out-the next time you go on Thursday date night with your girls- below. Enjoy! --xoxo

Weekend Finds

Happy Saturday Lo'Catter's, I hope everyone's day is off to a fantastic start! I'm not sure about you all but Saturdays are all about retail therapy for this girl over here. Yes hunny, I have an entire day dedicated to retail therapy. Shopping is form of therapy for all fashionistas so I know I'm not alone in this.

I'm always so busy with meetings, events and work during the week that I never have time to do the one of the few thing that calms me, shop! However, Saturdays are all about shopping! There are always so many deals on the weekends. The only thing I love more than shopping is discount shopping!

After looking around I found some to-die-for pieces with even more to-die-for prices. Check it out below.

 

 

 Shop the Deals:  I've really been feeling the  trench coat  vibe lately. It's not only cute but its a staple piece as well, especially if you get a bright colored one.   The camo craze has really caught my eye. So when I saw these  camo pant s on Misguided I had to add them to my bag, there's also a 40% off everything sale in the site!  Black is back, this edgy  sheer black top  is super easy to style and its only $19!  Hi, my name is Lo and I'm a shoe-addict. When I saw these soft pink studded  heel booties  on Asos I nearly lost it.  Everyone should have at least ONE eccentric bag in their closet.This  cassette tape clutch  is truly one a kind and it's only $40!

LoYonce....A Guide to Gown Shopping

Lo all on the mouth like liquor.... lol! Ok let's get down to business! 

This past weekend I attended the Black Creativity Gala in Chicago. Finding a dress for this gala by luck was EASY! But, I know it isn't always that way so I'm giving my tips on easy gown shopping and making sure it fits to a T. 

Avoid going last minute

Even though I know that isn't always the case but if you can avoid it do so! It's nothing like being able to take your time when finding the perfect gown. Annndddd you never know if you have to get it altered. 

Look for inspiration 

Check your favorite women to watch. For me I always look at women with a similar skin tone and sometimes darker. Also, I look at women with similar body shapes. It really helps with trying to find what can work for you vs what can't...especially if its crunch time! 

Do Not AVOID THE SALE SECTION

LISTEN LINDA do not avoid the sale section! Simple! That is always the section with hidden gems with the best price. Who can avoid a dress for $360 originally priced at $1,400? 

Sis, keep a tailor in your back pocket

At the end of the day, we all need someone to alter a dress. Your best bet if your dress doesn't fit just right someone can fix it. Trust me! I took a dress from a size 8 to a 00 because I had to have it. You do not want to be caught on any camera with a dress that does not fit right. After all you might find your husband while you're out! 

Stretch and Breathable Fabric...Is your BFF

I have had my fair share of gowns I can't breathe in. But, I have a new found love for scuba fabric( at least that's what they call it)!  It stretches and...... I can move and yes that means breathing. 

 

Cozy Girl

Hey there Lo'Catters! I've been thinking of you all a little extra this week and I have something to say. I'm beyond here for this cozy girl wave! When I say cozy girl I mean COZY GIRL. You know the, hair tied chilling with no makeup on cozy...well maybe a little makeup. 

I'm always here for being comfy but I'm even more into looking fly and cozy at the same time. Whether you're going on a movie date, doing a little retail therapy or just on your rooftop doing some work being cute and cozy is IN!

Nike, Adidas and Champion have some super cute sweatsuits but don't limit yourself to these specific brands! Pair some cute red joggers, with a nike shirt, a puffer jacket and some all white, yes I'm feeling GODLY,  Air Force Ones! I've put a look together for you below! I also linked where you can find the specific piece or one very similar to it below! It's cozy girl season girl, get in tune!
