Happy Fashion Friday, Sweets!
We have approximately 11 days until summer ‘17. Are you ready? If so, good! If not, me neither! LMAO
I think I’ve discussed in previous posts that I don’t buy a bunch of threads when a new season is on the horizon. For starters, my disposable income won’t allow it, and that just seems like a daunting task.
Therefore, I purchase pieces at a time — good for both my wallet and sanity. Speaking of which, Beehive Boutique is my favorite! Their website AND stores are oozing with the trendiest pieces. It’s like shopping at a retail oasis, especially their location in Fort Worth!
Keep your eyes peeled for these summer ’17 trends:
- Shirting – One of my favorite trends; I don’t see us tiring of it anytime soon.
- Gingham – I own a fabulous gingham skirt. I personally approve of gingham on gingham.
- Basket Bags – I’m STILL trying to snag Cult Gaia’s Ark bag, it’s seriously a best seller.
- Retro Swimsuits – Don’t be afraid to opt for a nostalgic one piece or high waist bikini.
- Slides – Another one of my favorite trends! I’ve accumulated quite a few from Zara.
- Bold Florals – Start with an easy maxi if you’re reluctant to try this trend.
- Wrap Dresses – DVF.com!

Do you remember those ensemble sets, or for the sake of familiarity, short sets your mother picked out for your daily summer adventures? My fondest memories of summer fashion were those (sometimes ridiculous) short sets. I had a lavender and lime duo that I considered a staple; I chuckle just thinking about it.
Thirty years later, and I STILL love a good set. They’re perfect for both spring and summer; and honestly, less time is spent with finding something to wear. Whether it’s a matching set or mix and match number, you have the luxury to throw on and go.
The sassy, yet quirky set I’m wearing isn’t a set, but to the untrained eye, it appears to be. 😌
My tips for nailing said look:
- Don’t be afraid to experiment with different patterns and/or prints. For example: gingham, polka dots, floral, stripes, etc.
- Choose your shorts, first.
- Seek out pieces that can be remixed with existing threads you already own!
- Have fun with your look!
I want to hear from you! What’s your style protocol for scoring the perfect summer set?

I’m always researching fashion trends for the coming season. Hence, the reason why I’m wearing polka dot trousers in one photo, and blush cords in another. It’s a habit; in case anyone wants to peruse through the site and find out, it’s all here.
Polka dots, pink hues, and shades of yellow are showing up this spring. If you’ve never been to Dallas, our weather is pretty unpredictable. We’ve already experienced spring-like weather — highs in the 80’s last week.
Beehive Boutique in Fort Worth is the chicest. The inside is so picturesque, and the store is oozing with trendy merch for the fashion gal on a budget!
Heres’s a list of trends for Spring 2017:
- Seaside Stripes
- Polka Dots
- 50 Shades of Yellow
- Banker Stripes
- Statement Stripes
- Single Shoulder Cut-Off
- Flashdance Shoulder
- Sleeve Slits
- White Shirt Dresses
- Waist Cinchers
- The New Trench Coat
- Shocking Pink
- Flower Power
What trends are you coveting for spring?
Also, I’m wearing the Crayola x Clinique’s Mango Tango and Tickle Me Pink on my lips. They showed up as a slight tint on my lips, but they’re extremely moisturizing nonetheless!

This post is long overdue. I envisioned this MONTHS ago! Nonetheless, this is probably my most favorable post. The joyful expression on my face in these photographs are priceless. Honestly, I think I enjoyed riding the bike more than anything. I hadn’t been on one since I was in grade school. I’ve been dying to check out one of the bikes and familiarize myself with the Fort Worth Medical District.
Furthermore, those of you who are wondering if I purchased the shirt like how it’s pictured in this post — absolutely not! Pinterest is to blame! I spotted a blogger with a man’s buttoned shirt, transformed into a dainty, off-the-shoulder blouse. You can easily take one of your own and button the middle section; depending how much skin you’re comfortable revealing. Secure the bottom half by tying the part of the shirt that’s not buttoned and there you have it!
What are your thoughts on my look? Would you consider wearing a buttoned shirt similar to the one below?

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!
