Trendy Toddler Tuesdays: The Children’s Place

I love shopping,especially for my kiddos. Since they are constantly growing, I have to search for great pieces that are stylish yet affordable. One of my go-to stores for my kids is The Children’s Place.


The Children’s Place….

Has awesome clothes for babies to early elementary school age kids. The clothes are cute and very affordable. Below are a few of my favorite pieces I found on their website:


Baby Girls Short Sleeve Dress

This piece is so cute and would be cute for mommy & me date 🙂


Baby Boy’s Long Sleeve Sleeper

Youngest son Davon had this sleeper. He and my older son Xavier LOVE TMNT.


Girl’s Jean jacket

You can never go wrong with a stylish jean jacket.


Boys Vest and Blazer

These two are adorable! I’m loving the casual look on the boy on the left. The vest works well with this outfit. The suit is great for Church or Easter. Pair the Jacket with some jeans for a more casual look.


I am always a happy customer when I leave The Children’s Place. The store in my city has experienced sales representatives and I can always find what I am looking for.

Trendy Toddler Tuesdays: Puffer Vests

I am starting a new topic for my Tuesday lineup called Trendy Toddler Tuesdays. In these post, I will not only discuss trending pieces for toddlers, but for all ages. I just thought the title was cute 😉

Puffer Vests:

I am currently loving the Puffer Vests. I think they are great for those days that aren’t extremely cold and plus, they can be very stylish. I purchased one for both of my boys and they love them. I paired them with a long buttoned up shirt, jeans, and boots.


This little girl is ready for a hike. Her rain boots go great with her plaid vest. I love how they pared the blue jean shirt with the outfit as well. Her hat is so cute and works well with the outfit.



These two outfits are adorable!  I love how the little boys outfit is more casual . His vest gives the outfit a pop of color , which I love!!!! 🙂


Puffer vests can be purchased just about anywhere. I bought my boys vests at Target for a great price. I would look for one that is with good quality.

Top Pieces That Every Man Should Have In Their Closet

Hey everyone!

In a previous post, I talked about what top pieces that should be in every woman’s closet. Today, I will be focusing on the men and the top pieces that are essential to have in their wardrobe.


A Sports Coat/Blazer. Having one will make you look put together no matter what. A blue blazer is the cornerstone of any casual wardrobe, because you can create numerous outfits with it. Make sure to purchase one that fits well on you. sports coat

Denim Jeans. Jeans are iconic, simple, and are easy to wear throughout the week. You shouldn’t purchase just any pair; make sure you invest in a pair that is made of great quality. Most go for a pair that are straight leg, but if you’re daring, try a pair of Skinny Jeans. For those that are on the heavier side, try to find a pair that are more relaxed or a pair with a slim boot cut.



T-shirts are great for wearing under sweaters or by itself with a pair of jeans. These are essential for everyone’s wardrobe. They are great for days when you are going for a more casual look. You should invest in neutral color t-shirts as well. If you are daring, I suggest purchasing some with cool prints to spice up your wardrobe. Plus, try to invest in some from other brands besides Fruit of the Loom.


Buttoned up Shirts and Polo Shirts.

Polo shirts are classic, all-American, and come in all colors, while buttoned up shirts are timeless and can either dress up or dress down an outfit depending on the event. You simply can’t go wrong with these pieces. I suggest getting a couple in neutral (black, white,gray, etc.) and a couple in fun shades. Just make sure that you purchase these shirts to fit, especially on the arms.

Chinos. Chinos are classic and can be worn  with a sweater or a buttoned up shirt for work. If you are tall, I suggest that you purchase a pair that doesn’t have a visible hemlines. I also suggest having a couple of pairs in different shades of neutral.


Dress shoes & Casual Shoes. For dress shoes, invest in a pair that is black and a pair that is brown. Depending on the outfit, a pair black dress shoes just won’t work. A pair of brown dress shoes will work well with navy, tan, gray, tan, and more.

Having a pair of casual shoes can change to appearance of anyone’s attire. They are becoming more acceptable in places than ever before. Make sure to have a pair that can go well with many outfits and are comfortable.

A Tailored Suit. Every woman loves a man in a suit! It’s unattractive to see a man in a suit that is too big  or too small. They can to be worn to the office, to evening events, weddings, etc. For those who are shorter, make sure to purchase a Jacket that is short. If you are taller, you can get a way with a long one.

Sweaters. Pullovers and cardigans are great layering in the colder months. When purchasing a cardigan, keep in mind about the pockets and how they make your torso look bulky. I suggest getting them to fit, but having room to wear a shirt underneath.

sweaters for men

A Watch. Your watch doesn’t have to be expensive, but should be of great quality. Brown or Black bands or more traditional, but if you are wanting to make a statement, I suggest going for a shiny or matte metal. Just don’t go for a digital watch please!

OOTD: Inspired by Sienna Miller

Hey everyone! Today’s look was inspired by the beautiful actress Sienna Miller. I was reading through the November issue of InStyle and came upon this photo.


This look is stylish and every woman can pull it off. The blazer is tailored to her body and the pumps are classic. The animal print shirt gives the outfit a little bit of edge. Overall, this outfit is amazing so I had to recreate it for myself.

Top Pieces to have in Your Closet

Hello everyone!!!! Here are some pieces that I believe that every woman should have in their closet. These key pieces will take you through all the seasons and can be very affordable. I have all these pieces in my closet as well and I believe that you should invest in them for yourself to wear whenever the occasion calls or for something special 🙂

fp1A Simple White T-shirt can go a long way. You can wear it under sweaters, blazers, or by itself with a cute skirt. Your options are endless and you can purchase one from anywhere.

fp5The  Blazer is classic yet feminine, and will look great on any body type. Pair it with a dress or a pair of jeans with a cute tank for the day. Just make sure that you find one that is fits you well and accentuates your waist.

fp6The Black dress is a must to have in your closet, but it is important to invest in one that is special. You should look for one that has unique embellishment and/or has interesting details. Just remember that finding the right one is important!

fp2A Leopard Scarf  would go great with a tank, jeans, and a pair of heel or flats. This piece is great for completing any look.

fp4 A Statement Necklace will make any outfit standout. It can make an outfit Feminine as well. Use a piece for a pop of color.

fp9A everyday bag is awesome to have, especially for a mom like myself. Great for a business meeting, a conference, happy our with friends, or dinner with the hubby.

fp8A pair of dark wash jeans is a must for your closet. They are slimming and  work for a wider range of events than other washes you may own.

fp3A Pair of flats are a great essential to have. They are comfortable and stylish. Having a wide selection in colors and designs are great to have along with a pair of classic heels

So, now that I told you some of the pieces I feel every woman should have in their closet, is there anything else that you feel should be included? Comment below 🙂

Until next time….
