Fashionista: Not Some Basic Bitch

I have no problem saying I like to look good. Is there very many women alive who don’t? And I’m certainly not some basic bitch. With this being said, I’d never base my whole life around being a fashionista either! And believe me, some women do.

Now, let the record show, I haven’t always been so up on my fashion game! As a young, struggling Mom trying to support my two daughters, I simply didn’t have the means. Frankly, I didn’t have the interest to keep up with it all back then, either. I certainly am far from being wealthy now, as well. But I can better manage my life just in general, these days. God help me, if I were to have the endless funds to indulge!

What I have come to understand though, is how to stretch a dollar and still look über cute. It’s funny..once you start inching towards the 40 year mark, you kinda just automatically begin having the desire to hold onto the days of having the freedom to play around a little with your beauty routine – which, for me, includes fashion!

Fashionista Junior

My oldest daughter has come into a style all her own. She has kept up with her workout routine and really been developing that booty of hers. Her style includes a little bit of different things, but the high-waist pants and short little crop tops fall into the categories of what she’ll typically wear. Even when I was 22 like she is now, I was always too self-conscious about my figure to wear anything that might come off as being a little promiscuous. Well, there was a couple things…

Anyway when I saw this hippie crochet top that has a kind of sexy vibe, my first thought was of my daughter! I really like the breathable material to it, since the knit fabric should make it really soft.

Love the Graphics

I’m a fan of graphic shirts. I like to just throw one on with my favorite pair of jeans or some leggings. This “Pop the Champagne” sweatshirt is super cute to do exactly that! It looks super comfy, with a slouchy effect. Perfect for a trendy fashionista!

These Booties Were Made For Walking

Y’all, us women need at least one pair of sky-high stilettos. But then you add in that they’re Christian Louboutin booties, AND they’re black leather?! Oh, heck yes. I particularly love the details of the three bows going up from the peep-toe to the ankle! The inner ankle has a zipper and, of course, the signature red lacquer is on the soles. Be still, my heart!


Bringing Sexy Back

There’s something about a sexy backless dress that just screams “Let’s go out dancing!” Unfortunately, this mama with the big chest doesn’t really do backless. The girls need support, my friends. But I do think these tank dresses are cute as hell! I’d totally buy it for my oldest.

I love an adorable pair of sandals that make me feel like a fashionista stepping off the runway! Don’t you? And these simple chic flip flops are always a must for the beach. With a lovely pedicure, they give such a dainty appearance!


All About The Accessories

These days, I’m really into scarves. Particularly when it’s ridiculously cold outside, WHICH us Texans aren’t the best at embracing! But a beautiful scarf draping from my neck, well it at least brings a little positivity to the situation. This soft floral pattern is very feminine as well, and a fabulous accessory for a matching outfit! I actually bought my mom a bunch of them for her birthday this past week. She can be a bit of a fashionista herself!

Tote Around Town

Of course we have to make sure and have a fashionable bag to carry, to complete any look. And for the girl always on the go, this gym bag is pretty spot on! They can just smile, crush life and repeat daily. It stores everything you need in it, and get this..the bottom zips open to even fit an extra pair of shoes! That just brings me life right there! I love the camo on this Stella and Dot one.


Support The Ta-Tas

I don’t know about any other fashionista, but me? I need a bra for the girls, like I was saying earlier. First of all, it just prevents sagging and when you’re a DD like me, that’s always something you think about! Plus, there’s days where I have a ton of errands to run and I want to do them in comfort. So I throw on a sports bra and a cute open-back shirt, and get down to business! This is such a pretty one to do it in, too.

What An Animal

Sequins and zebra print..need I say anymore, girls? I imagine throwing this on with some black leather pants and a strappy pair of sandals. However I’m also living in the past, because I no longer own any leather pants! Ah, but it’s good to digress once in awhile, isn’t it? Either way, this top is lit. I’d totally still rock it out!

Just a Girl

Always a classy touch, you have to add the delicate feminine touch with a soft looking necklace. What I especially love about this one is the minty color, but also the clear glass crystals! With an eye-catching button down blouse, this would be the ultimate finisher.

Fashionista Extravaganza

Sometimes, we simply have to make it up as we go. This long-sleeve wrap top lets you do just that! It’s easy to wear and it has an adjustable waist tie. Another thing that’s perfect about it, it’s a great top for any bust size! Plus, it works well with a bra which I think I’ve made clear is a must for this girl. I also just love a versatile piece of clothing that I can wear whether I’m showing a client a house, or going out to eat with my husband!
