Summer is definitely here and I love wearing things that reflect the season. I got this dress last summer for vacation from Amazon.com. This dress makes me feel like an island girl even though I’m thousands of miles away.
I styled this look with pink wooden diamond-shaped earrings and gold shimmer sandals. I wore a black midi dress under my chiffon dress because it is sheer. I styled my hair in a puff ponytail and I wore pink lipstick. I like to keep it simple.

Suicide, depression, psychosis, self – mutilation, trauma, abuse, homicidal thoughts are just a few situations that I encounter on a daily basis with children and adolescents. I spend countless hours in emergency rooms, schools, homes, and hospitals responding to crisis. If I am not assessing, I am on the road or doing a lot of paperwork. Over the past few months, I have been adjusting to my new role as a crisis counselor. This is why I haven’t been blogging on a regular basis like I normally do. I want to send a special shout out to a blog sister of mine who actually reached out to me recently because of my hiatus. Thanks Hil for checking on a sister…please go support and follow her https://hilthethrill.wordpress.com.
I wanted to share my look from yesterday. The goal for my crisis style is to be professional and chic. I make sure that I am comfortable so, no heels allowed. So, I rely on cute sandals and flats. My outfit is from Rainbow plus. I recently got my pants for $7. My beaded necklace is from Walmart $3.
I got this tote last spring from TJ Maxx $24.99. I needed something that was professional and efficient for what I have to do. It holds a lot. I found this cute little key chain at a fundraiser. It adds a little flair to tote.
I have been wearing my hair in Havana twist. They are super convenient for my busy schedule. I wore some pink lipstick to add a little life to my face when I don’t have time or energy to add any other makeup.
On Saturday, I chose this look to run errands and go out. Instead of wearing a flirty dress for this warm Tennessee weather. I chose a look that merged masculine and feminine elements. I wore a buttoned down men’s shirt I got from an estate sale for $1 and some old jeans that I have.
I like men’s button down shirts because of the structure and they can be easily converted to women’s wear. You tie the bottom of the shirt into a knot. Wearing high-waisted jeans or a skirt can make the shirt feminine.
I rolled my jeans up and my sleeves some to soften my outfit. I wore brown heeled lace up sandals and ($19.99, Just Fab) and a studded brown handbag ($7, Goodwill). I wore red lipstick and of course big curly hair (a DIY wig I recently made). I made sure I wore a smile! I felt really fabulous and sexy without having “dress up”.

Hey everyone! I wanted to share one of my favorite go to summer looks. This look was about two summers ago but still wear it. So, it’s a throwback. I have had these palazzo pants for several years now and I love how they flow and sway. They are great for summer weather because the are cool, light, and comfortable. I usually pair these pants with a cute tank or a cute top. I love wearing this salmon colored off the shoulder top because it’s goes well with the pants. I like wearing off the shoulder top because they are sexy without being too revealing. I usually wear this belt with these pants.
The pants and belt are from Cato Fashions. The pants were $15 and the belt was $2.99.
I like wearing my hair in braids or twist because I wear high buns quite often because it’s sleek and great for summer to stay cool.
Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think of the throwback!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any personal styles from my closet. It’s been even longer since I did a style post with my sister. On Sunday, Jessica and I wore some thrifted garments mixed with non-thrifted garments.
Here are Jessica’s thrifted pieces:
A thrifted skirt from an estate sale $1.00
earrings were bought from a consignment shop $2
Jessica’s skirt was the statement garment and she accessorized to complement her skirt. I added the the belt to finish the look.
I adore color and yellow is one of my favorite colors. I chose to pair my dress with button down shirt for a bold summer look. I kept my accessories simple with gold and pearls. I chose my leopard prints wedges to add some flair since my dress and shirt are solid colors.
My thrifted piece:
Dress from Goodwill $6
