THE BELL SLEEVE TOP

Happy 11th day into the New Year babes!I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday as much as I did.I have to say I stepped away from the site slightly to revamp my approach and I am so excited to show you guys what I have been brewing.

As one who love fashion and styling, you sometimes have to step out of the box. As you follow my blogging journey you will witness that stepping out of the box is not a problem for me. I actually enjoy being in my own lane when it comes to styling. I love being different and staying away from what is trending. There is so much fun in creating a look no one thought of. 

Let's get into this look and the inspiration behind it!!!! If you follow my Instagram (@inposh_weslay) then you know that besides blogging, I also run my own online boutique. Making the decision to open a store was a huge decision for me. I stepped out on faith and the journey has been nothing short of amazing. I will blog about that at a later date. Speaking of my boutique this gorgeous and fun Bell Sleeve Top is from my line. I absolutely love this blouse of course because it is from my store ;-) but, mostly because it is so diverse and a really awesome add to any look. Though, I paired it with a leather skirt there are so many endless pieces you can pair this top with whether it be jeans, a skater skirt, or some Bermuda shorts. This top alone is just breathtakingly chic! I like this look because it is so fun and so different. It is not something that most would immediately think of wearing.You know when you go shopping and an item catches your eye, but you're just not sure about getting it, and you think to yourself " Hmm, I like that BUT I need to see it on someone or styled" This is that "she made me buy it " type of top. A secret behind styling sometimes that top or bottom that seems risky or a bit much, might just be the best purchase you'll ever make. I promise you, I have bought things that were so far from my usual taste and have gotten the most compliments due to how I chose to style it and ROCK it!!

Style TIP:  The look is not about who will like it, it is about how you ROCK IT! When you have an once of doubt just add a pop of color and GO!!! You make the look, the look don't make you!

So, we are officially in the last few weeks of the year. It seems like the year went so quickly. How many of you are excited about the holidays ahead and starting a new year with new goals set? I am!! Though I encourage each of you to set a goal every month, it doesn't have to be for the new year. DO IT NOW!!

Sometimes you have to take a step back from the familiar things, and do something extraordinary. I am such a fan and supporter of those that step out from the crowd! In order to be, you must first step out. Throughout my blogging journey I will share some things with you that some may have known and some didn't know. Believe me when I say It is amazing where Faith and Love can take you from and to.  

Quite a few years ago, I was involved in a relationship that at the time I thought was perfect and amazing. Let me say this sometimes, you get so caught up in the potential, that you ignore what is reality.Sometimes you think you have it all because you are hearing and getting what you want, rather than what you need. When you tap into your purpose and focus on what God's plans are for your life, you start to do things differently in which is called Maturity and Growth.

When I realized what was more important, I started changing and God started revealing.This guy had been abusing me emotionally and it got to a point of obsession. Know that Satan will try to take advantage of you in your most vulnerable state.I started seeing things I had been ignoring throughout the entire situation.My self esteem was low, I didn't have the confidence I now have, he tried to convince me that no one would ever want me, he tried to make it seem as he made me who I was, and etc. When someone is blocking your vision, you become lost. I was honestly lost at the time but, when I allowed God to break that chain from my life, I started becoming whom he wanted me to be.I am so THANKFUL and beyond GRATEFUL that I can share this to help someone else. It is never ok for anyone to make you feel as though you are nothing without them, it is never ok to feel like you are beneath anyone. But, it is ok to walk away from those things that doesn't promote us into being and doing better!  We are all precious in his image. 

"But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. 2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." -Isaiah 43:1-2

BLAZER AND BOOTS

Today, I am just taking it all in that Thanksgiving is in less than a week. Wow! This year seem to have passed really quick. Who else feels the same? During the holidays is when I see most of my family and I honestly, enjoy it. There is nothing that can take the place of those whom support you, and love you unconditionally. Make sure you take this time this holiday season and really make it a thankful one. No matter whom you have surrounding you, be thankful for those people. Spread love in whatever way you can.

I took a day and volunteered my time to the St.Vincent De Paul dinning room. For those who are not familiar with them, they have multiple locations that help those in need. This particular location feeds those in need. I must say that this was one of the best things I did all year. It touched me in such a way to see that I could give freely and make such an impact on another life by doing something so simple, Volunteering! Such a humbling experience.  If you have a feeding center or a local place near you that offer these types of services, please volunteer and touch a life with time and love. 

Let's mask in the awesomeness of this look!! This blazer is one of my new favs, I paired it with these distressed shorts (on sale!! for $30 + 40% off ) I got a few months ago from Express when they were having a huge sale. If you do not own a pair of olive knee high boots or knee high boots period, Girlfriend what are you waiting for?! Ha I just love OTK boots, there are so many options out there. But,these boots are only ($50). They are fun and a great add to any look,I paired them with this look to bring out a fall vibe. Links to all this hawt-ness and some other options are below loves!

What better way to bring a new blog post by making a huge announcement! If you follow my Instagram page,Then most of you may know I have been blogging for about a month now.However, my passion for fashion has been for years.I always loved dressing up or styling someone,it is something fun for me.But, more importantly I believe I was gifted with such a talent. 

I like being different and taking risk with styling whether it is with others or myself.Sometimes,you have to be uncomfortable in order to achieve somethings one thing form of advice I can give anyone that is interested in starting a blog or starting something that is a gift of theirs,"JUST JUMP".Before starting my blog and my boutique I debated for the longest with myself.I was my own set-back and dilemma, one of your biggest competitions is SELF! The support and push of others was always there,I was the one holding back and talking myself out of making a move. 

Now that I have jumped,I can honestly say this has been a very joyous journey and I am so grateful to share it with each of you.

HOW TO TRANSITION A BLAZER BY CHANGING YOUR SHOES

Anyone looking for that cool weather like me? I reside in South Louisiana and living here, we never know what temperature it will be no matter what season it is Ha. But, it is Fall season and I am ready for it! So, why not take advantage of it still being warm enough for a blazer and some cute shorts.

Adding a blazer to an outfit sets a tone in more ways than one. I paired my blazer with some shorts and showed two different approaches to the look. The first, was with my favorite block heels from Target. This look is great for a quick lunch date or even if you're just going to the mall for a mini shopping trip.

The second look, I paired some cute tennis to show a more relaxed look. These tennis, I got from Fashion Nova a while back and I love them. Same look, just different approaches. When you wear a blazer it does not always have to be paired with heels. Both looks are very comfortable and perfect for the 'lets meet for lunch day' or that 'I just want to look cute and comfortable'.

First, lets take a moment to preserve the cuteness of these embroider jeans! One of my ultimate choices when piecing together a quick outfit, is wearing jeans. I have so many pairs of jeans, I could probably open a denim store. What about you? I have noticed, that embroidered clothing, is making a huge come up in the fashion world from Jackets, to Shirts, and even Shoes. I love it all!

IMG_3420.JPG

These embroidered jeans is on sale for $20, and I love the slit at the knee detail. Paired with this puff sleeve blouse that can be worn on and off the shoulder. Now, even though I pulled out the pink with this blouse, you can pair these jeans with denim, Olive, Navy shirt, or even a colored blazer. Yes, to all pops of color!!! Until our next fashion chat,go slay your day babes!

FLORAL DRESS

Are you saying YES to this dress?! I AM. I tend to browse the internet often in search for something different, when I want something new. In searching for floral lately, I have been very successful with BOOHOO. They have amazing options for floral prints. I must warn, that they have tons of cute looks.

When it comes to floral prints, there is no denying that it is eye catching. When wearing floral,don't be afraid to still add a pop of color. This off shoulder shift dress is perfect for date night, or a night out with the girls. I love the spaghetti straps accent.The length is perfect and the fit is comfortable. I paired it with a waist belt and simple black heels. In South Louisiana the climate changes quite often. So,adding a denim or leather jacket to this look,would be perfect for this Fall weather.
