Balling on a Budget: Comfort and Sass

Balling on a Budget: Comfort and Sass

Hey all! I hope life finds all of you with smiles on your face and money in your pockets, lol! This is a quick Balling on a Budget look I threw on to head out on some errand runs and a night of grabbing a bite to eat with my mom and auntie. I can not get enough of the track pants trend there are all so comfy and chic. They come in so many varieties and can be dressed both up, down and in-between. I would consider this a in between-er. It was easy enough to wear while maneuvering thru the grocery store isles and cute enough to pair with a like leather jacket for a quick bite to ear.

This look is almost entirely from my guilt pleasure retailer, Tar-Jay, or Target if you want to get technical. I swear I try to avoid there clothing and shoes every time I am there shopping for the house, but somehow it drift quietly away from the cleansers, paper towels, and body soap area, and right on over to the Juniors’, Misses, and plus department :). The trousers are in a XXL and can be found, here. This cute little satin coral flouncy bodysuit was a must buy, being that it was such a gorgeous color with so many future outfits in mind, here. I paired it with a silver drop chain necklace from Forever21.com, and some old faux pearls, similar here. The silver clutch is one of me clearance favorites I found at HM for five bucks( so nice, I brought it twice! I got the gold one as well), similar here. My gunmetal mules are my new everyday fave shoe that I found at Off Sak’s Fifth Avenue. I absolutely love that store for shoe shopping. They are French Connection and the most expensive(but still a great deal) item in this look!

So let’s let the number talk now:

Track pants:    $ 22.99

Satin Bodysuit:  $ 17.99

Drop Necklace:    $ 5.90

Faux Pearls:     $ 2.90

Silver Woven Clutch:   $ 5.00

Gunmetal Grey Oxford Mules: $49.99

Total:       $104.77

Yasss, all this sass for a little cash, don’t you just love it!

Peace and blessings, loves,

Humble

Humble

Hey all! I have been a little bit out of it lately when it comes to blogging. So much going on in life, both good and not so good, that I just haven’t been in the moment to chat, or even get all dolled up. But this will change because I have been so blessed and have so many great opportunity. I am so humbled by it all and cannot wait to share the details :).

With saying all that my fashion as of late has been lazy, and of  course my favorite lazy piece is the kimono. They always make nothing look like something, lol. This particular Sunday, I through on a white tank from Target, here, and my favorite fitting skinnies from here, with this super whimsical printed kimono from Forever 21’s CA Love line I found it in store and unfortunetly it is not online, similar here. The wedges are my comfy shoes and are so old but I can wear them all day, I was almost certain I blogged them before, but I guess not. They are by Ralph Lauren and I think I found them at T.J. Maxx, similar here. This is perfect for my Sunday because I am usually going from church, to grocery shopping, and taking care of what ever else needs to be handled. The handbag is from Shoedazzle.com, and old classic, and the choker can be found at chokdaccessories.com.

 

I do missed blogging, time to get back to my regularly scheduled programming 🙂

 

Peace and blessings!

Live LIFE!! I do not consider myself an advocate because I do not have a huge following, nor do I put together events to help women with focused on self-love (yet), however, am do consider myself a woman on a body positive, life positive journey that I must say I am quite proud of. Like many women it is extremely hard to not extra critical of oneself and outer appearance. If any woman is even a little bit like myself, you have been happy, angry, happy again, sad, and even cried yourself to sleep at night about your body image. You’ve dieted, exercised, and damn near(if not fully) starved yourself to try an obtain your “perfect” body. You may have compared yourself to others, critiqued others, compared yourself to others, and just been overly crucial of the way  your body looks. You’ve even at times prevented yourself form enjoying the world, because of what the world may say (let that one sink in, lol). Its sad, but its normal for a woman to be so screwed up, that they do not know how to handle loving and embracing their body as it is. For most of us, women, what we see one the television is not what we see in our mirrors, or better yet in the shower daily.  When I think about it, it damn near has me in tears (yes, I am the overly sensitive crybaby type at times, lol). For years I have never worn my thighs out. They have one of the many parts of my body that I was insecure about. Insecurity about thighs on women are common but mine was not just the normal cellulite complex, it was also my varicose and spider veins. I have had them since I can remember, but more specifically around the eighth grade. Do you know what this did to my life! Completely restricted it. I literally never wore short-shorts until about 20 years old, and would not be caught dead in a swimsuit without board shorts, or a long wrap, crazy right, When I finally purchased a pair I rarely wore them, it may have happened, once or twice that summer, with some heavy coercing from my BFF. It may sound foolish to most, now it even sound foolish to me! You know how they say with age comes wisdom, there also comes that give no fucks attitude. I think that comes from the loss of time, and the realization that much of your time past and what you have left you have to make enjoyable and memorable, and beautiful! And guess what its easy! You just got to live for YOU! Stop hiding, and bottling yourself in a comfort zone because of what society says does not matter. You know that saying “What they eat don’t make you shit.” Live by it, because it is awesome, and guess what it goes both ways, so when you think about those that you fear judgement from you can still apply it 🙂

With all that being said, these pictures were not supposed to be blog post, but I decided I was going to live life, being happy, confident, and comfortable in my skin on Sunday and post them 🙂  The tunic I recently purchased from H&M in-store, similar here. My white folded jeans shorts can be found, here, for just $ now, SUPER STEAL!! My statement necklace and sunglasses, you have already seen on my previous post, here, but can be purchased on Forever21.com, similar sunglasses here (they are no longer on the website but I still see them in the store), and necklace here. I picked this scarf up on my trip to the Orange County Fair, blog post on that adventure coming soon!

Live Life Curvy, and really LIVE!!!

Monday thru Friday, from early A.M, to mid afternoon I am at work, waiting to be off work. With my busy lifestyle I literally have to be ready for whatever when I get off work. I need clothing that can appropriately take me from the office, to the heat, to the store, to the kitchen, and to basketball practice without having to worry about a slip and fall, etc. In order to combat the heat I must say I love a good loose fitting dress. Don’t get me wrong I love a tight fitting dress as well, but they are not very work appropriate all the time. So when I saw this cute little number at Old Navy, and under $35, I had to pick it up. Not only is it a plus size friendly dress, but and it runs from sizes XS to XXL and comes in tall or petite. It is easy to wear with a light blazer, or a cute distressed jean jacket, or no jacket at all when off work.  I went with my absolute favorite pair of leopard flats that I have had for probably like 4 years, lol (and my husband wants to throw them away but that will be over my dead body). These are the actual shoes, and you can see why I adore them, but they are so old that I cannot purchase a new pair, but I have found and alternative, here, they are not my favorites I may just have to scoop these up.  My statement necklace was adorably picked up by my husband, here, he be trying y’all 🙂 My multi -colored clutch purse is another oldie, but goodie purchased from aldoshoes.com. They have great accessories and shoes and they are currently running their end of the season sale, so I will definitely be checking out the deals.

 

Thanks for stopping by,

Peace & Blessing,  Tiffany Chavon
