Kicking Off Summer with Femme Luxe

I’m so happy that there’s warmer weather on the horizon. Even though I’m not physically going out, I’m still on the hunt for fun spring/summer pieces. Femme Luxe, a UK based women’s clothing store, reached out to see if I wanted to try some of their pieces. I was hesitant at first because I’m very picky with my style and clothes, but I was excited to try a new brand and share my thoughts with you! Thank you Femme Luxe for partnering with me on this post. The pieces included in the post were gifted to me by Femme Luxe.

Not going to lie, I am not one who tends to show a lot of skin with my clothing choices. I keep my style pretty classic with trendy and practical pieces. I stepped out of my comfort zone with their Black Tie Front Organza Mesh Sleeve Crop Top. This black crop top gives the right amount of coverage without feeling too overexposed. With a tie front design and an organza style mesh sleeve, it pairs perfect with a light pair of high-waisted jeans. It was giving me major 80’s vibes, which is why I think I liked it so much.

The white top I received unfortunately did not fit… which brings me to my thoughts on their sizing. I ordered everything a size up because I had no idea how their UK sizes compared to US sizes. Even with the size chart, I was still very confused, so I ordered everything bigger, hoping it’d fit or I could take it in. The White Ribbed Off The Shoulder Crop Top did not fit at all. I couldn’t get it over my head or on my arms. I would say sizing isn’t very consistent, so I’d recommend going up a size to be safe. I wish the white top worked because it would have been perfect to pair with a comfy pair of sweatpants.

My favorite item by far is their White ‘Beverly Hills 1990’ Oversized T-Shirt. During this time, I love the biker short look, and this oversized t-shirt is the perfect item to pair with it. The fabric is so soft, and I ordered the largest size, so it could hang longer. It’s the perfect shirt to wear working from home or if I am just lounging around the house.

Overall, Femme Luxe’s prices are pretty reasonable and shipping is relatively fast. Since the items were coming from Europe, I was expecting the package to take a few weeks to arrive, but it came in less than a week and a half. The clothes arrived in a cute pink sleeve and everything was packaged nicely.

If you’re on the hunt for some new summer pieces, give Femme Luxe a try! Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe!

Review of ToSave.com

I recently received a package from the website ToSave.com and wanted to review the items I got in the mail! All products featured in this post was gifted by ToSave.com.

ToSave.com offers inexpensive fashion, beauty, and electronic items for any need. The company is based out of China, and the website is set up very similar to Amazon. When I first looked at the items, they all had Pinterest images to represent each piece, which seemed promising. The styles were cute, and I was curious to see how the items looked.

Casual Stripe Off-The-Shoulder Shirt

One Piece Bandage Push-Up

Sexy Women’s Lace Top

A month went by, and I finally received my package! The items looked identical to the pictures on the website, but with some differences. The quality and fabric was slightly less than what I was expecting. The burgundy swimsuit is very thin, and also is not made up of a material that would be waterproof . It also claimed to be push-up, but there is no padding. In addition, I was so sad that none of the pieces fit me properly.  I ordered a large in all the pieces, because of the fit and look, but they ended up not fitting like a normal large usually would. The swimsuit did not go far enough up my torso to cover my chest, and the off the shoulder shirt did not look properly sewn to be an off the shoulder shirt. The white lace top is the one piece that worked out perfectly, and looks perfect with some ripped denim.

I was really excited to try out these items, but wish they worked better for me. Their pieces are adorable, but just beware that some of the sizes are unpredictable and may not fit properly.

An Unusual Pair…

I am always looking for new ways to spice up my wardrobe. Instead of buying new pieces of clothing, I’ve found I can take the pieces I already have and change them up depending on the day. One thing that I’ve tried and absolutely love is the sweater and dress combo. Surprisingly, layering a big comfy sweater over a short dress can add a new look to your closet!

The dress I am wearing is my cranberry shirt dress with 3/4 sleeves, which I wore in my previous boho chic post. I then layered my black and white oversized sweater with zipper shoulder detailing. The reason this particular sweater works with the dress is because it is longer in the back and shorter in the front. This allows the look to blend better when it is on your body! I wore my plain, black opaque tights, chestnut brown riding boots, and threw on a black scarf just to keep warm!

The look is a lot of fun to put together because you can mix and match pretty much any sweater to any dress in your closet and have a put together look for any occasion.

Try it out! Add your own personal touches too! The look will soon be your go to outfit for any day!

Comfy Sunday!

On Sunday’s like these all I want to do is curl up on a couch with my pjs on. Knowing me, that doesn’t last long. So, what’s a girl to do? Put on an outfit that is both comfy and chic!

On this gray day, I decided to wear a pair of my camo, toothpick skinny jeans, which are stretchy and super comfy with a 3/4 sleeve, black sweater. The sweater is long with a V-neck and has a satin back. To spice up the look and add some color, I wore my burgundy, fringed scarf. On my wrist, I am wearing my Alex and Ani charm bangles mixed with some beaded ones and my Tory Burch band. I kept my shoes on the simple side and wore a pair of my chestnut loafers with gold stud detailing.

The reason I love this look is because it is one that I always turn to. I always wear my camo pants because they are extremely versatile. I can throw them on with a comfy sweater and scarf and feel put together. It’s something I will stand by forever!

So when you’re feeling lazy, why not throw on an easy outfit? Curl your hair! Do your makeup! You’ll feel put together and 100% better!

A Rustic Edge…

Sometimes the cutest outfits aren’t necessarily the ones that have to make a statement. I’ve fallen in love with the big sweater and dress combo, especially for the winter time. Add on a pair of riding boots, tights, and curl your locks, and you have a rustic style that is clean and cozy.

Considering the weather was cold and dreary today, this look was the perfect way to make me feel warm and stylish. I paired my floral, three quarter sleeve dress (with open back) with a long, over size sweater. Even though both pieces had a pattern, they worked well together because the floral print was subtle enough to wear with the big pattern on the sweater. My tights were simple, black opaque tights, and I wore my chestnut riding boots with them . To finish off the look, I wore a simple feather necklace and curled my hair to form large waves. The look was so easy to put together and definitely versatile.

I am not much of a rustic gal, but wearing this outfit makes me feel comfy without having to wear sweatpants. It is easy and very girly! Perfect for the girl on the go too!

Change the outfit up, mix and match, but whatever you end up wearing, I hope this inspired you to turn to a more rustic side with your style!

It’s Never Too Late to Change Your Mind or Your Outfit…

Like most girls, I am very indecisive, especially when it comes to what I wear. I’ll pick out an outfit, accessorize it, then completely change my mind. One of my greatest assets is unfortunately also my greatest falt. However, it’s not a big deal! As long as you feel good in what you end up wearing, then that is all that matters!

My outfit shown is another take on a Christmas/holiday look. My black trousers are perfect for any figure. They are high-waisted, have a tie string for the waist, and become slimmer and narrower as they reach the ankle. The fabric is so comfortable and definitely another option if you don’t want to wear a skirt of dress. I paired the pants with a cow neck blouse, which is creme and has no sleeves. (It also shimmers!) I tucked the shirt in, in order to show off my waist and the pants better. For a jacket, I decided to add a little bit of edge and use a black leather jacket, and paired the look with my leopard flats. Because I kept the style to simple and classic with only the flats as a pop out piece, I decided to layer on an orange/coral lipstick and slicked my hair up tight in a sock bun. I recommend the sock bun just in case you may be having a bad hair day. Finally, I kept the look with minimal jewelry, only pearl studs.

The pop of color on the lips and the leopard print flats are definitely a way to keep this look classy and basic. I like how they are unexpected and something that catches people’s eyes! They definitely photograph well too!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday filled with family and friends. And remember, whatever you are wearing, stay confident and fabulous!

A Little Boho Chic…

I always said that if I could live in a specific time period it would definitely be the ’60s. I love hippie/boho. It’s a great style that is not only comfortable with its long, flowy blouses and wide, brim hats, but also extremely chic and versatile. It’s easy to accomplish and definitely something everyone should experiment with.

My look started by pairing a cranberry shirt blouse with a pair of plain opaque black tights. From there I layered an army, green blazer over the look. The blazer has tribal print detailing on the arms and is so warm with its wool sleeves. From there, I wore my wide, brim black hat with chain detailing and some super cute knee high chestnut boots. Accessories were also crucial in this outfit! I wore bangles on bangles of my Alex and Ani bracelets and tied the entire look together with a long necklace (It’s a key :)).

The colors, although seem like complete opposites, actually compliment each other. Because they are deep and neutral, they pair well together and definitely do not clash! Of course my favorite is the deep cranberry/burgundy dress, which I completely recommend purchasing! It is the most versatile piece I have in my closet!

So whatever the occasion may be, just remember that boho chic will also be FABULOUS!
