The Ultimate Summer Uniform

Happy Monday!

Summer in Texas is HOT; that’s a fact. Often times, a lot of people (including myself) will avoid activities before 8 pm. That’s just what it is.

Dressing for the scorching temps can definitely be a challenge. Not only do you want to appear stylish and trendy, you also want to stay cool, too. I love dresses. You don’t have to put a ton of thought into a good dress, cute purse, and fun shoes.

Lilly Allen made me fall in love with pairing a dress with sneakers. It’s one of my favorite ensemble combinations. I purchased a long, silk dress from NG a few years ago, and I wear it with low-top converse. It’s a good errand look.

Also, I absolutely love Reformation’s summer dresses, but they’re a bit pricey. Luckily, clothiers like Forever 21, Topshop, and Mango house summer dresses at a fraction of the cost!

What’s your go-to summer look?

Happy Saturday!

I can hardly believe that it’s been three years since I established my blog. It was no easy feat, but here we are!

Last year, I didn’t celebrate, but this year is about reflection. The journey I’ve embarked on as a Fashion/Style Blogger has been both difficult and rewarding. It’s a humbling experience – I would’ve never imagined having the opportunities afforded to me through hard work and perseverance. My mentor, Kimberly O’Neil has been such an amazing supporter since the day we became acquainted. She is the force that really pushed me to establish my blog.

Originally, TSB was a platform that I used to shed light on like-minded individuals. Features, trend reports, and product highlights were a large part of the blog. Building a rapport with individuals not only from DFW, has been imperative to the livelihood of my brand. Luckily, I’ve been fortunate to do just that! I’ve transitioned into offering my readers a glimpse of who I am, in terms of style.

Lastly, I appreciate all of you who lend your time to read my posts in their entirety, offering a kind word in the comment section below, and being a force behind my determination to progress.

Thank you! Xx

P.S. Those cupcakes were really good!
