God I love a puff sleeve. When putting this outfit on I thought to myself, I have a ruffle skirt but I also have this puff sleeve. Is this too much? Then I decided no, it's not and just like that walked out my house. haha! I think it helps that I wore clear heels with it and the entire look is black and white. Also, do you love my new little wig situation? I got bored of mine so I threw this little number on and I may or may not call it Sasha.

“There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” –Nelson Mandela

Wow. Ive always been a huge fan of LaQuan Smith and also a huge fan of ASOS. Them combining forces is EVERYTHING. Both this dress and thigh high boots are from their collection. Oh and it also comes in plus size. I love how they shot this lookbook. Can we discuss how I did my own make up and wig for this? I'm sooo proud of myself because I'm forever impatient with make up and hair and I finally took the time to watch a Youtube video on how to properly put foundation on and do a wing eye. I used tape. That was the secret incase any of you don't want to watch a full make up tutorial haha. Also, my I have on e.l.f. teal tease eyeliner.

"Your future is found in your daily routine. Successful people do daily what others do occasionally." -Paula White

Every family member or friend knows if they want to get me a gift but aren't really sure what I want, it's a pair of chenille socks. My best friend got me these ones I'm wearing for my birthday. I loooove love love a good fuzzy sock. I think my sock obsession started when I was 17-ish. I would buy regular cute socks with clouds and whatever was cute printed on them and then it became fuzzy socks. Now that the holidays are coming up, I can't stop. Someone save me. Jr's Rudolph nose came off of his set that I bought him last year so I'm going to buy him a new pair this year. Maybe this time I'll buy the socks with Rudolph printed on, like these ones from the GAP. He never reads my blog so he'll never know I'm planning on it. haha

Oh just you know another casual day waiting for my Little Caesars pizza. haha. They remind me of when I use to live in NY. We had one on the block I use to live at and when I'd almost be out of money, I'd eat nothing but their $5 pizza for the day to hold me over. On another note, can you tell I love camo?

"A good idea can become a great idea when it is given focus time." -John C. Maxwell

I think that quote is so important. Most of my career, especially in the beginning, I was all over the place wearing multiple hats and doing so many tasks. I felt like I HAD to to get where I wanted to be. I later realized when I hone in on ONE thing I really want to accomplish and focus the majority of my energy on it, it would be more successful than if I were to half ass it. This past Summer I finally decided I wanted to get back to basics and hone in on what I enjoy. On another note, how great is this wig? 9I5A0267

"People who see the big picture expand their experience because they expand their world. As a result, they accomplish more than narrow-minded people." - John C. Maxwell

We stopped at a chocolate factory in Interlaken, Switzerland. Of course I picked like 6 different flavors and ended up really only obsessing over the caramel filled one. Swiss chocolates are everything you'd imagine plus more. Do you see my cute nails? Can you believe they're press ons bitch! YES! For this trip I was like I don't feel like getting acrylics, I'm just going to get some press ons and call it a day. So every time I changed outfits, I changed my nails. Don't judge me, aesthetic. LMAO. How gorgeous is this scenery? This was the same day we rode the mountain coaster.

Right after taking this picture in the middle of Switzerland, my boyfriend attempted to teach me how to drive stick shift. First, we started driving on a military only road and had no idea until a military jeep came up to us and told us we couldn't be there. Then, we attempted again on a road where the were lots of cow and obviously for me, this was very difficult as I constantly get distracted by cute animals. I pushed through though and I actually did better than I thought I would. The first time he tried to teach me was in Iceland a few years back, at night time, in a slanted parking lot. That didn't go so well. lmao. Anyways, I'm excited to move back to NY only because of the in-between, semi-cool weather. You know there weather where it's not scorching hot and humid but also not freezing with snowfall. Photo Sep 27, 12 33 25 PM

“For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.” -Anthony Robbins

Oh hi thigh high boots. The Cut recently did an article with me featured in it including this look. This look is probably one of my favorites so far. I paired this belted shift dress with some knee high snake print boots and I'm getting a 60's 70's vibe from it. Oh, and this dress also comes in black. I'm excited for all the thigh high and knee high boots I'm going to be wearing this Fall. I should probably do a round up of my favorites for you guys.

"Do you love what you see when you look in the mirror? Because I bet that if you love it authentically, everybody else around you will. They won't even have a chance to see anything else, because you will have a shield of confidence around you." - Jada Pinkett Smith

Ahhhh this was on mine and Jr's 3rd year anniversary. We were in Italy drinking red wine (when I say we, I mean him) haha and just having dinner. We went and got gelatos and took a cute picture for the gram. I'm going to put out a vlog soon with our trip to Italy/Switzerland and in the video it shows how difficult it really is to eat those cone gelatos. I should've gotten mine in a cup and called it a day but noooo, I had to have one of these cute tourist pics.

Anyways, theese are my go-to pants when I want to look like I dressed up, but also don't want to wear jeans, but want to be comfortable like sweatpants except not as hot. I actually found them inside JCPenny in the Queens Mall one day when Jr and I were shopping with his mom. I found a link for them at Zappos, they're black taper zip pants. I'm wearing Nike prestos with an adidas top. I'm lawless.

"Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did." --Newt Gingrich

I've always been a huge fan of biker shorts. 1.) They're stylish but more importantly 2.) Comfortable and it feels like you're wearing nothing 3.) You never have to worry about your legs rubbing up against each other but still get to show them off. I wore these cute DimePiece biker shorts back in 2014 when they weren't as popular and people kind of made fun of me but ohhh well haha. You can check out that post here. Now they're somewhat cool and I'm all for it. Oh and also, Who What Wear featured me with this look on their site for Spring 2019 trends. So yeeeee!

I also never knew how much I needed a fanny pack. When we were in Switzerland, it literally held everything I needed (wallet, chapstick, handheld camera, JR's wallet, the keys). It's better than carrying a purse just because my hips are always carrying a lot of weight, so what's an extra pound or two? I'll do a round up soon with some of my favorite fanny packs which in the UK they call bum bags.

The biker shorts I'm wearing are from Pretty Little things and they come in a TON of colors. Their sizing goes up to a 12 so I found some similar plus size biker shorts from Torrid and some similar blue biker shorts ones from Charlotte Russe. Also, my new favorite around the way sneakers are these New Balances. They're SO comfy.

On the last day of our trip to Italy, we drove to Cinque Terre. Junior actually suggested this place. It wasn't even on my itinerary. I'm dumb, I know. haha I'm glad he had us stop because the view alone was STUNNING. Every corner you turned was picturesque. I wore this blue wrap dress, which to be honest, I don't even remember where I got it from because it's been hanging in my closet for 2 years without me touching it. I did gather a few of my favorite wrap dresses at the moment below. ASOS has a really cute plus size denim dress and PLT has this white wrap dress with red hearts printed all over it. I may get it now just to wear on Valentines Day. Every place I went in Italy and Switzerland, I ordered a desert because I'm on vacation and why not? I have to say that EVERY restaurant we went to, they had a chocolate cake with melted chocolate. I really appreciate how universal a chocolate lava cake is no matter where you travel.

“The road to power is in taking responsibility. Your heart, your life, and your happiness are your responsibility and your responsibility alone.” -Will Smith

A while back I saw Kourtney Kardashian wearing pants sort of like these that cut off around the ankle, fit nice around the hips, but then flare somewhat out and I was like yesssss girl! Although we have entirely different types, I know she's short like me and if I set my mind to it, could make it work. Anyways, I wore this look on our drive from Switzerland to Lake Como. For this trip, I literally packed only 3 pairs of shoes. I usually always bring my all white vans along with me just because they pair with everything so easily and also show off my ankles, which I love doing lol. I was taking a look at Target and saw they had the cutest plus size utility pants like I'm wearing but in a dark black finish. Do you see this pizza we ate? Phenomenal. Someone please take me back to Italy.
