Tomboy X

It’s been forever, I know I know! It was my Spring break this past week, and all I did was stress about 1 more mid term coming Tuesday- haha

James and I go to always go to Florida every year for our Anniversary, and Avynn’s birthday as well. This year we decided to skip the vacation and reach some bigger goals.

With being on-the-go (always) I promised myself I’d do more than just “throw myself together”, but Menswear has been my go-to since pregnancy!

I teamed up about a month ago with a brand called TomboyX . I love what their brand stands for, they embrace all shapes and sizes-they sell bras and underwear. I decided to wear my 9″ briefs in a menswear look that was so so comfy!

I loved the color of these boxers, and how soft they are. These are from their Micromodal collection! I have another pair I’ll be capturing soon. James is already fighting me for these.

Hopefully we will be seeing more of a glimpse of Spring soon-I love taking basic shoes and a basic top, and having shorts/skirt as the highlight!


Back in all black

Yikes, embarrassing how long it’s been since I’ve logged in here. I won’t lie, this year I’ve done so much reflecting. Reflecting pushes me away from opening up over social media ( this world is scary, people are too judgmental). Also, if this wasn’t a full time job for me (blogging), I don’t even think I’d want to “exist” on social media. But let me just say, social media for sure is so powerful. I’ve been networking with thousands of people this past year, and I can not wait to dive into 2018 with open arms. I have a ton to share and even more to experience!

With the semester ending, I’ve never felt more proud of myself to finally accomplish something great to show my girls! I’m finally one step closer to my degree-what’s even better than that? Being able to tap into my Creative outlets and continue to work on some amazing projects at home while the girls run around like crazy!

With a fresh start, of course I chopped my hair, and wanted to jump back into my blog with all-black-everything ….well aside from these white booties that I’ve been obsessing over for awhile now!

As always I’ll keep this short and sweet after saying-never ever let anyone over power your energy. Nothing for you will pass you. There’s never a “perfect time” for anything. Never put more effort lighting someone else’s flame, before first lighting yours! Actually, no : be the light, be the flame.

I allowed way too much to over power my thoughts, emotions, and energy. Then I realized wait: I’m a strong mother of two beautiful, smart, little girls. I’m in love with the most amazing best friend god could bless me with, and now I’m married to him for life. Not to ever boast, but just to remind myself; I already won. I have everything! Anything that comes next is just accomplished bonuses! Always aim for more, but never be dissatisfied with what you already hold close.

No white after Labor Day?!

Hey! As always, I’ve taken a huge step back from this. I just pushed through mid terms, got super sick, then came my birthday and Halloween! I just turned 26 and I feel like a grandma….seriously I was in bed by 11 that night haha 

Overall though, I’ve been so proud of myself to be able to balance. I’ve balanced two crazy girls at home, 5 classes, weddings, other events, and still finding time for workouts and blogs! 

I received this outfit that was completely out-of-my-element, I originally wore it on my birthday, and totally felt like a nun. The usual me would take the shirt and pair it with a different bottom, or vice versa, buttttt I took the leap and went all out with all-white-everything.

I’ll keep this short and sweet! You can find this set at Style We 



Triple threat 

Happy Wednesday! Happy October! I say this every time but it’s seriously been forever. I’m a busy bee, 5 classes is no joke, with 2 girls is even more hilarious: but needless to say I’m killin it! 

I’m working for an amazing brand right now (from home which is ideal), so I promised myself I would blog more and have the girls involved. I’ve gotten so many requests for the girls to be in the spotlight again and honestly how could I resist?! 

Avynn loves her photo taken, but Ivory was a whole different story haha- James was a trooper he kept chasing her then putting her in her “spot” and running out of the frame quickly

Cheetah/leopard made its way back on shelves and I’m not mad. I feel a sense of power wearing it, it’s so bold. The girls are animals so this was perfect for them 

I’ve had this top for years, and also I’m loving how faux leather is back! 

I tried to dress down my look with these slippers from Simply Vera Wang

Also, I love that I can dress this skirt up or down, with a blouse or a loose tee! 

Ave was in such a good mood she kept saying “Mama remember we used to blog when Ivory was in your belly?” Haha

I used to do anything to keep us out of the house while I was still pregnant  but having 2 girls is like having 20, I swear 

We grabbed some pretty cute shots, and how cute are their matching skirts from Old Navy?!You guys will also see a lot more of this bag! I’ve teamed up with Lily Jade-this is the chic-est diaper bag I’ve ever seen- obsessed! I’ll be posting on Instagram some amazing features it has!  

I’ll keep it short and sweet today- but I wanted to throw red into this blog set to symbolize the strength and power of family. Vegas is still in my thoughts and prayers, and it’s been so hard for me to shake. Hold your family and friends extra tight, all we need to spread is love more than anything.

Growing up whenever I would hear the word power/powerful I always thought it meant how strong someone was, and that to me was always physical. Years later power to me doesn’t just boil down to muscles, haha

I went through a huge funk this past year, and it allowed me to get back in touch with me. My passions, who I am, and what I love. Growing up I loved to read and write. I was super late in the game reading Girl Boss about 8 months ago, but let me tell you I’ve re-read it a thousand times; even just small excerpts to remind myself to never give up during those times when my overthinking brain screamed louder than my open heart.

Luckily I’ve been anything but negative lately, something has come over me and it feels so amazing! I picked up “Power of Broke” by Daymond John ( for those of you who don’t know Daymond he is the “people’s shark” from ABC’s Shark Tank).

To me, Daymond isn’t just the “people’s shark.” I remember growing up my older sister would rock FUBU and whenever she’d sleep out at a friends house I would steal her clothes and wear them…growing up with sisters man haha

So Daymond has always been a HUGE inspiration for me, mostly because of the fact that I could relate to him 100%. I remember years ago I was reading an article about him and his journey, and the one point that’s always stuck with me was his ability to build a brand out of his house-sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor right nearby some clothes he had to ship out.

This image never left my head. I’ve received handfuls of advice about entrepreneurship from plenty of experienced people, bitter people, and helpful ones; but I’ve always felt they’ve never been delt my cards, felt my footsteps. And man when I tell you, Daymonds book is speaking levels. I’ve screamed YASSSS outloud so many times, and smiled twice as much.
I am the Power of Broke. Since day 1 nothing, ever has been handed to me. This is 100% the reason why success never came easy. I’ve always been lazy with excuses and doubts; telling myself nothing could ever happen for me. I’ve never felt things were in reach, or even at the end of the tunnel for that matter. This was until I became a mom. At first I let life beat me up a little, then I grabbed the gloves. Now I am hungry.

Never in my life have I ever felt so powerful, and a huge reason for this is because of the push. I’ve been pushing out of my comfort zone, and having faith in prayer. But guys, prayer is only so powerful ’til backed with action.

I’m on my way to a meeting that will push something I’ve been working on, and I can’t wait to share with you all. Reading to me, alters reality for me, well actually it puts reality back into perspective. Hearing multiple success stories has overwhelmed me with faith.

I want to thank you Daymond for your down-to-earth real advice. It’s such a breath of fresh air to hear reassuring words from someone who never let money change him. Just know you pulled me out of a depression-you gave no false hope, just reality. So I thank you. You hit it right on the head when you described the power I hold as an individual in my circumstances. The power of positivity is really what this generation needs.

If you guys haven’t had the chance to read, and you’re one of those who have been in a rut lately; he got you!

And in honor of power, you all know Red is the perfect symbolic color! I chose to mix pink and powerful. Pink was a huge theme of my first collection I dropped; then I snatched it back. I wasn’t ready, but now more than ever I feel so powerful. Ladies don’t be scared to colorblock-although James wasn’t feelin’ this look at first, he came around haha


Saturday Blues 

It’s been a long summer for me. I’m just now hitting 7.5 weeks post-op from my hernia surgery and lawddddd what a recovery. As always recommended please do your research before you agree to procedures! No complaints here-but I thought I’d bounce-back quicker!

And summertime is all about feeling comfortable, cooling down, and making memories. So I finally decided to throw on a bathing suit I’ve had for months
I love the denim-on-denim, since childhood so let me tell you-it will always be my go-to!

It took a lot for me to post these photos of my stomach, because I’m not fully healed, and I never expose it! But hey, beauty is skin deep guys, better to be natural and embrace your flaws then to be like the rest of ’em- photoshopped.  My goal is to actually get to the beach before I start classes! I hope you’re all enjoying the last of your summer, I’ll keep this short and sweet! 

Love who you are, fix things you want to improve, but realize you’re more than what you look like. It’s hard to feel comfortable with my stomach showing because it’s been my biggest weakness for years. But I’m working on it, and for now I realize I’ve held two huge and beautiful baby girls in this body, and I have the best man who loves me for me. I’m happy and healthy and that’s what counts. I remind myself of all of these blessings every single day, and this has helped me move past my looks and towards my goals! 



So Necessary

Hello again, Ave and I are on a roll here!

I received a package from Necessary Clothing and as you all know I’ve loved them for years! I actually had purchased some items when I was pregnant with Avynn! Anyways, I was in a rush to blog this outfit, mainly because once I tried the skirt on, I realized my belly stretched out the fabric wayyyyy too much, making it a tad-sheer. This skirt has the perfect casual-to-dressy idea, and I know I’ll be wearing this post-baby! I’ve  owned a million black skirts before, and I have to say I’m most obsessed with the length of this one.

Although the photos don’t show it (because as I moved the skirt rose up), this skirt actually goes right to the ankles! Ankle length almost always screams dressy, so I wanted to play-down that vibe.

James bought me some (Mother’s Day) classic Reebok sneakers which I’m pretty sure I had the same exact pair in middle school (but in pink-of course). And one of my favorite 90’s style trends aside from the skirts + skorts with sneakers, were the chokers! And man are they coming back! P.S.-James totally hated it, and told me Ave + I looked “gothic,”-how rude haha


As I talked about in my previous post, I’ve been the Queen of DIY! This black distressed tee was also sent from Necessary, and for me it just wasn’t “destroyed” enough! I decided to pull at the holes that it came with, and also take clippers to create more holes! I love love love the way it came out, and it’s been my go-to black tee lately! I will definitely be checking out their site for more colors. Also….ladies, Although this shirt only runs for around $12, you can achieve this look so easily with tops you already have! – I did a few of my old shirts as well this week 😉

Avynn’s outfit was a complete- DIY! Her skirt is actually an old small tank-top that no longer fits, so I pinned it near her back, and gave it the “90’s tie-up” just as I did to my tee! Her shirt was a long sleeve that shrunk, so since the sleeves were already too short, we chopped them!


With the sleeves we chopped from Ave’s skirt, we cut, rolled, and pinned those into chokers! And per usual, she has my look from head-to-toe (even looking down to copy my pose)



Again, I am wearing my new watch seen here –> JWW from JORD!

A SunKissed Sunday w/Kenzo

Today is gorgeous! I hope all of my Rhode Island readers got to enjoy today! I’ve been on the road today on the travels to pick up the perfect bassinet for baby Ivory! I will have to share with you all once the nursery is nice + set up! It’s amazing because we had the same exact one in our family for years and unfortunately it was given to a family baby years ago! But we found the same exact one + it brings back so many memories of my childhood! 

Before we jumped on the road we picked up my favorite iced coffee- Felecia’s! I absolutely cannot stand driving, so I gave into my caffeine craving + got a small iced piece of heaven! 

This morning it was chilly so I decided to throw on my favorite sweatshirt before my big belly can’t fit into it! I’m 90% positive this KENZO sweatshirt isn’t authentic because I thrifted it in the city for a pretty decent price! Regardless I was inspired by the Kenzo + skirt look that I saw Beyoncé in a few years ago!

 Bey paired hers with a pencil skirt as well, I just have a baby in my mid-drift haha!


 I was so excited to see the sun today because I could finally whip out my bottomless sunnies from Mirina Collections they have such unique pieces for a great price, right out of NY! Also follow them on Instagram ➡️ MCollections


I almost got rid of all of my tube skirts months back because it almost gave me “clubby” vibes, and I’m so glad I was able to transition these into pregnancy pieces! So so easy to throw on! This one was only around $11 at Forever 21
I’m off to enjoy the rest of this sunny Sunday!




Hues of Blues!

So I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been dyinnnggg for jean jacket season! I went through this entire summer without buying one, especially because here in Rhode Island the rain has held off until right about now…hurricane season!

I thrifted this jean jacket a few weeks ago and decided to wear it before I bleach it! I’ve always been a fan of denim on denim, however I used to pair the denims as close to the shade as possible. For this outfit I decided to dress in different hues of blues!

I’ve been waiting to pull out these suede blue heels especially because Royal Blue is super trendy right now.  I also chose to start pulling out all of my sheer blouses! These are so perfect to layer with, and I think I grew the biggest selection of these while I was pregnant. I purchased so many throughout my pregnancy because of the ability to buy bigger sizes, yet still pull off the baggy-comfy look when my maternity was over!

For all of my pregnant readers/new mommies remember: pregnancy does not mean you need to embrace maternity clothing, or get rid/re-do your wardrobe! Purchasing bigger sizes will work for you, especially when transforming your wardrobe back- after baby! The sheer top collection I have is ridiculous, there are so many colors and prints that can help you turn your comfy jean day outfits up a notch! Here I decided to go with a basic cream sheer blouse from H&M. I love the collared look.

In last weeks Circuit-talk, I introduced a comfy look with sneakers and my favorite hat! I purchased this black faux-leather hat about a year ago at a LIDS in Florida. Now I’m seeing these hats in every color! I wanted to embrace a comfy-chic combo today.
