A Fresh Take On Chambray


Spring has finally arrived! It's time to pack away your winter wardrobe and replace those now empty hangers with light-weight, breezy clothes. One of our preferred trends for this season is a refreshing favorite from seasons past, chambray! Checkout Memory Mouro, a junior at the University of Central Florida, to see how she styles her favorite chambray top! The great thing about chambray is its versatility. It can be worn like a denim jacket over a loose fitted top, pair it with your favorite pair of heels and a cute bag and you are ready to go!


We love the effortless look of tying a chambray top around your waist for a casual outing. Memory chose an orange and white striped top and added a pop of teal in her accessories to complete this outfit!


 One of Memory's favorite ways to style a chambray top is over a maxi dress.

Spring is the perfect time to bring new life to your style! So whether you are going for a casual look or something more sophisticated try reinventing your classic chambray top!

Dorm Life: Sharing Closets And Friendships


"A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms." -Source Unknown

. . . and that's the beauty within the friendship of these five ladies.

Barbarah Reynolds, Jennifer Suarez, Nikki Kemp, Lexus Potts, and Alexis Gauthier each come from such different upbringings and have such diverse passions, so it's so unique to see this specific combination of ladies crossing paths.

What's truly amazing is that they each encourage each other to be uniquely themselves.

Enjoy this mini lookbook of outfit details from their Wynwood Walls experience.


Jenny wears a light-weight high-low cotton dress from Forever 21 with a tan Fedora hat.

BarbarahJenny's hat is so versatile, that Barbarah snagged it for her outfit as well!

Barbarah's World Changer shirt was custom made at a T-Shirt Press station at Trinity Church's 2015 Girflriend's Conference.

The principle behind this picture: You don't have to be SEEN to be a world changer.


Alexis has the same World Changer tee that Barbarah does, except the foiling on her design is actually a BOLD GOLD color.

"I wanted to keep the bold theme by adding my $7 leather pants from Plato's Closet."

Lexus &Nikki

Lexus and Nikki have such separate but put-together styles! Lexus' black and white combo is classy, while Nikki's bright colors are boho!

Lexus Necklace

Lexus' oversized striped top is a great canvas for a blue jeweled statement necklace. Similar accessories can be found at Walmart.

Jumping for Joy

Jenny and Alexis are actually college roommates, and they choose to challenge each other in JOY.

This photo captures the very idea of Luke 6:23 "Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven."

Ways to Wear: The Infinity Scarf


The infinity scarf is noted for its never-ending versatility and rightfully so. Infinity scarves can be worn casually or styled to dress up a look. Below are a few ways to wear the original cotton infinity scarf. One Way (stripes)

Most infinity scarves can be worn full length or open, as shown above. This option is perfect for a casual look. If the scarf is a bit lengthy when draped once, double it up as shown below. You want to be careful the scarf does not fall too far past your waist.

Doubled (dots)      Knot (dots)      Tie (stripes)

Left: When doubling over an infinity scarf, your preference will ultimately decide the look. You can pull the scarf tight to taper the scarf (as pictured) or pull the ends of the scarf together, which will even out the scarf to the same length. By doing this, the scarf will appear fuller and there will be no worries with the length getting in the way.

Middle: The knot is always a fun change from the typical layering and doubling. You can achieve 'the knot' by creating a standard knot on one end. Once you put it on you can adjust both the size and placement of the knot.

Far right: For a quirky twist with an infinity scarf, make an incomplete knot and "fluff" the scarf to give the appearance of a tie. For example, begin with a standard knot but do NOT pull it all the way through. Instead, create a tail with the scarf; you can pull it out for a fuller look (as pictured), or tuck in the fabric for a 'skinny' tie.

Styling 101: Weekend Picks


The Summer of long days by the poolside and being school free are coming to an end. Although we are trading our swimwear & fashion forward days for uniforms [some of us business attire] we MUST not give up on our weekends. In other words ladies, we cannot forget that we still have the weekends to dress in remembrance of our carefree days.

So without further ado, we now deem every weekend a reTREAT! Here are two of our favorite -completely different- picks to get your weekend started!

First up is the infamous nautical themed look. We chose to play with the contrasting shades of blue, the lighter hue to brighten the look, and the darker blue to be the root color of the outfit. Add simple studs and fabulous sunnies to complete the head-to-toe style.


Blouse | Skirt | Tote | Flats | Sunnies | Studs 


 For the second look, we are taking it to the streets (or the mall, dinner, really wherever you like). The tank dress is casual, but the pop of yellow in the sandals and the matching crossbody adds pizzazz! Did we forget to mention this eye-catching China Glaze polish in Caribbean Temptation?!

Have a great weekend. Be sure to TREAT yourself!

Get the Best Look for July 4th with Overalls


Today we salute to the red white and blue! We count our blessings and celebrate our freedoms even though our fingers may be dripping with watermelon juice.

Amidst the fireworks, BBQ, and picnics stands a tradition that deserves a little dusting off, the true blue, DENIM. But to stand proud this holiday, we say "Redefine your Independence", and go for the overalls!

far away


Even when the celebration ends, you will surely have other opportunities to showcase your patriotic side in these scarves: plaid stripes floral American flag


The best part about overalls is that they are a top find at local thrift shops!

*Don't forget! Being able to adjust the length of the straps can solve length issues*


If you still are on the fence about overalls, go for an alternative such as a jumpsuit.

Denim Jumpsuit | Sleeveless Denim



Effortless hairdos are made easy with head-wraps (can be found in an array of different colors)!


So what will it be? The Grand Ole Overalls or a Jumpsuit we all Salute to! The choice is ultimately yours!

Happy Fourth of July!
