Paris Takes Miami: Wearing Classic Stripes.

Just a few pictures in Miami wearing a classic fashion trend; stripes. The lace/stripe dress was captured on stage at the Snoop Dogg concert and the stripe shorts pics were after club Cameo.
I also wore a multi-color stripe swimsuit…Check out my beaches & swimsuits post!

Shopping In Miami!!

As many of you should know, shopping is one of my favorite things to do and Forever21 is one of my favorite stores. I found a lot of great fall and winter pieces such as shoes, handbags, and accessories. I can honestly say after thoroughly checking out each section and going into the fitting room a bunch of times; I purchased everything I wanted. Thank God for one of my friends helping me carry my bags around because I wasn’t done with Miami Mall.

♥ I had one of those “Throw it in the bag moments” 😉 😉

 

Beaches & Swimsuits!! :)

This summer I purchased all new swimsuits from Victoria Secret she had all the answers (as my friends and I would say). These pictures are captured in Destin & Miami, Florida. I had FUN in both cities and wish I could relive it all again! 😉 While swimsuit shopping I normally decide based on color, style, and fit. I love to play around with colors! Bright pinks, lime greens, and yellows are my favs. Since it’s the summer time your swimsuits should always reflect summer colors but you can never go wrong with the two classic colors, black and white. The style is also very important when deciding on swimsuits. I like both monokinis and bikinis but my preference would be a bikini, just because of the versatility with tops and bottoms. The fit is the most important one of them all, because without the right fit, well…you might as well stay in the hotel room.lol… While ordering online, I was afraid I would have to send them back because I thought the small (bottom) would be too small, but it worked out well! Summer is my favorite part of the season and I would hate to see her leave but until we meet again DEUCES HONEY! My winter plan is to hit the gym! (seriously). I wish I could say I workout often but I really don’t and I don’t watch what I eat. Bad I know but I’ll do better. Also, shout out to everyone who has complimented me on Facebook and Twitter about my swimsuit profile pic and how awesome my body is. You all are going to make me maintain and hit the gym hard! 😉

Make Good Decisions.

Sometimes in life situations come your way, and when it does, you just have to make good decisions. With that being said, I’ll be moving back to New Orleans soon. It’s kind of a bittersweet moment for me because from here I wanted to move to California. One of the first things I thought about was changing the introduction on my blog as if it was never in the plans, but I’m a human first and for most so there’s no need to cover up my plans when they don’t transpire AT THAT TIME. I have a lot I would like to accomplish in life and at this moment moving back home would be the SMARTEST option for me. This is a sweet moment for me as well because I’m moving back in with my parents and that means FREE RENT! HOME COOKED MEALS! DVR! & MORE CLOSET SPACE…LOL! *Just joking* moving home gives me the clear mindset and freedom that I need to study for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Becoming a lawyer has ALWAYS been a dream of mine. I can still remember being a little girl and people asking “What would you like to become when you grow up” and me responding “A Lawyer.” Since this was my first and only goal for a while, I’m going to do the best I can by turning my dream and something that I’m most passionate about into reality. I’ve learned that life is all about choices and the direction of our lives come down to the choices we choose. Therefore, whatever that choice may be, balance it out so that it works for you! I was thinking about giving up on my blog since I’m not moving to Cali but this has been something I’ve always wanted to do before I decided I wanted to move, so giving up on it is a NO, NO! As people down south would say, “One monkey doesn’t stop a show.” I hope I’ve inspired someone to go after their dreams and realize that it’s okay to have a plan B and C. You only live once so live it by doing what YOU’VE always wanted to do! Take risks, Step out on faith, Laugh, Learn, Be creative, Follow your heart, Fall in love, Make mistakes, Take every opportunity that comes your way, Pray, Plan, Take your time, Invest, Speak up & speak out, Make your own footprints, Respect others, Motivate others, Believe in yourself, Let go, Feed the homeless, Dream, Go after what you want, Say yes & say no, Do what is right, & Volunteer. Whatever you choose to do, do it because you want to, regardless of what others may think or say about you, your happiness is what matters most, and all other things are secondary!!! 😉

♥ I’m home now and loving life!! I arrived on Tuesday, had an interview on Wednesday and was offered the job on the spot. God is good!! 😉

*Update: In 2016 I moved to Cali for a 1 and 6 months and 6 days. 😉 The best times of my life. I grew mentally + spiritually.

Paris Takes Chicago Wearing A Ruffle Shouler Cardigan , Booties, & The Perfect Jeans!

       I went to Chicago for the very first time!! I’ve heard so much about this wonderful city and was really anxious to visit. It’s also often called the “windy city” and believe me, it lives up to its name. I wanted to dress weather appropriate and classy, so along with a short sleeve shirt, I made sure I packed a sweater. This is one of my favorite sweaters. You can wear it with just about anything; unbutton with a fitted dress or tights and flip-flops. It’s easy going and the balloon sleeves give it that fun feel. Also, these booties are my favorite as well. The heels add about 5 inches to my 4’10 frame and make me feel really sexy! Oh yea! these pants are the PERFECT fit(it’s really hard to find jeans that fit my waist and my butt) so I had to purchase these, and check out where from @ the bottom!!! The material is cotton and spandex but they give you the spandex look but with a jean style (which is now called jeggings) leggings and jeans together…had to buy more than one pair! 😉

The three L’s every girl should have in her closet are; Lace, Leather, and Leopard. With these items, it’s easy to mix and match with other great styles.
