Sunday Style: Purple Rain

Image
Happy Sunday! Today’s post is a special one! I’m loving all things purple right now and it’s even perfect for the holidays or everyday! 
Purple is often known as the color of royalty. Prince loved the color purple as he said he felt more “Princely” when he was wearing it. Did you know it wasn’t his favorite color though?! 
Purple is a combination of red and blue. Purple is the color most often associated with rareness, royalty, magic, mystery and piety. When combined with pink, it is associated with eroticism, femininity and seduction. 
Purple goes way back in history. Did you know that they used to get the dye from snails to dye their clothes? They used to take the snails from their shells and then a gland had juices that were extracted and put in the sun until they became the right color! I don’t know about you all but I love reading about the history of things so this was right up my alley! 
Prince wrote the album Purple Rain as a soundtrack to the movie. Many analyze the term “purple …

This or That Thursday: Floral Debbie

Image
Hey friends! I got back later last night than I anticipated so no blog post for yesterday. Don’t worry though I’ll make it up to you all! 
I love showing you all multiple ways to wear clothes and especially a dress that you can wear is fantastic! I love the Debbie dress from Lularoe as it accentuates my curves and makes me feel pretty when I wear it. I have a lot of this dress style and I’m not ashamed of it! It’s super comfortable and easy to mix and match with things! 
This one is a teal background and florals and I felt it looked somewhat festive for the holiday season! In one look, I paired a mustard Sarah sweater and flats with the dress for a more casual look. In the other look, I took the sweater off and added some fun red booties for a different look! 
Which one is your favorite? 






Flats are from Target - Universal Thread brand 
Booties are from Shoe Dazzle- last year 
Dress and sweater are from Lularoe 

Hey! I’m also having a huge giveaway over on my Instagram! I’m giving away 15 pie…

Sunday Style: Green and Pink

Image
Why do green and pink go together so well? I don’t really care about the reason but I just love the combo so much! 
I have to tell you all that I had a photo shoot last week and this dress was one of the outfits that we photographed. Green and pink played so well together in front of this wall but also in the cafe where we shot. I had a great time meeting Celsey and Marc and they were so fun to work with! They had a great energy and were very creative and thorough in their work. They are currently in Kansas City but are open for Dallas shoots when they come into town. I would highly recommend them and I’m looking forward to hopefully January when they’ll visit again! 
Now on to this floral beauty that I know you all want to know more about. This dress is from Navabi and it is so fun and flirty. I love the colors and florals and the design is just so good! The tie neck in the front and the ruffles in the back make this dress one of my faves! You can also use my code sandaexnavabi for an …

WhatUp Wednesday #44

Hi friends! WhatUp Wednesday was delayed a day because I was tired and didn’t feel like writing last night! Sometimes I’m just tired and there isn’t any reason other than that! I seriously fell asleep on my bed at the wrong end of it no less while looking at my phone. (Insert shrug emoji here lol) 
So who went shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday? Anyone get any good deals? I’ve been working a part time job and have been so busy doing that and looking for a new full time job that I just didn’t make it out! I bought one thing on Cyber Monday which was a pair of sequin joggers- I mean, the most practical purchase ever! 
I’ll be starting to post some holiday looks before too long here and on Instagram! Be sure to let me know if there is anything that you want to see specifically! 
So here’s a super cute outfit that I want to show you in today’s post and it’s activewear from Fabletics! I am loving this combo! It’s perfect for working out or wearing out to shop or a casual brunch! Click h…

Sunday Style: Feeling Flirty in Floral

Image
This post is in collaboration with Macy’s and City Chic. All opinions are my own. 
It’s that time again! The time when a lot of places in the country start to get cooler temps, college football is on the television, the leaves begin to change colors and the pumpkin spice aroma is strong. Here in Texas, we have somewhat cooler temps if you count the 80’s instead of the 90’s…But anyways, it’s fall! One of my favorite times of the year!  Disclaimer: this was written when it was warmer outside! One of the things with fall that can be hard is knowing what to wear and how to dress for the current temps. I am loving items from City Chic at Macy’s because they have taken the guessing out of it for you! City Chic embodies a bold, sexy, glam and chic lifestyle; designing for the confident curvy woman who has a passion for fashion and style. City Chic also has fabulous mix and match pieces or dresses like the one I am showing you today.Now this faux-wrap dress is really something special. I love …

WhatUp Wednesday #43

Hi friends! I bet a lot of you are getting your turkeys defrosted and side dishes started tonight in preparation for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving holiday! My son and I will be going to eat at a friend’s house tomorrow and I’m super excited to be sharing the day with her and her family! 
In case if you were wondering, I really won’t be sharing gift guides or tons of sales on the blog. I might actually visit a store here and there and maybe show you a few things, but other than that, that will be about it. I’m still looking for work and personally can’t spend money but I’m all about helping others if I see something while I’m browsing online or if I’m out and about. 
So this last week has not been super exciting. I haven’t been feeling the greatest and I really think it’s this weather getting me down a little. I’m grateful that I’m not back up north in the cold and snow but the early darkness might have me in a little funk. I did do one thing this last week that was sooo cool but I’ll write ab…
