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.

Men’s Style Monday: Holiday Outfits

Hello everyone!

18 more days until Christmas!!!!!! Whoohoo!

In my last post I talked about different Holiday outfits for women. In this post I figured I would give some men some ideas for upcoming events that they may be attending. Since I will be hosting my Holiday party soon, I should give my husband some ideas 🙂

I loved all of these outfits and my husband did as well.

The Casual Look:



Cute Sweaters:



My favorite is the first one (with the plaid pants). I don’t know why, but I’m loving the pants. My hubby thought the last photo (the sweater) was nice. I can see him wearing that on a day to day basis at his job. This is more of his style and his students are always complimenting him on his outfits.

So do you have a favorite? Are you and your significant other doing anything special that requires you to dress up?

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.

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!
