Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt For Day & Night

February 25, 2016 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

A little black dress is a closet staple but a little black dress that’s also a skirt and minimizes my waist and midriff is just genius!  When I first got the Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt I immediately worried that it was going to be one of those suffocating fabrics – but it’s not.  Sure it’s snug, but just snug enough to slim all the right spots.  The more you play around with it the better it looks and what totally had me hooked was how when I realized that it held up the “little girls” and we all know that’s not an easy task.  I wouldn’t say I would be able to go braless in it BUT any strapless bra would do (unlike other strapless dresses without support where I have to search high and low for maximum support).   I’m obsessed with this dress!  The fabric is a matte black making it super easy to dress up or down.  It stays put which is important for me because I plan on wearing it on the dance floor and it’s machine washable.  I could go son and on!  It’s the perfect dress to pack on any vacation, for a night out on the town or under a blazer for a sexy office look.   For more info on Sassybax’s Convert A Skirt visit www.sassybax.com

The Formula: Denim Jacket

~ The Formula: Denim Jacket ~

Still one of my favorite dresses.

Whenever I want to look pulled together but not too dressy I throw on a denim jacket.  I’ve had this dress from Ross for years and I’ve worn it solo during the summer, with sweaters and tights when it’s cold but my favorite is with denim.  I was originally going to wear my deeper blue Levi’s jacket (seen here) but I thought the distressed one from American Eagle went way better with the boho vibe. Tip:  If you’re lucky enough to get casual Friday’s at work, a denim jacket is an easy replacement for a suit or blazer and you can wear it with any skirt or pants.

Dream Believe Achieve

When summer rolls around down here in Florida it comes with inhuman heat and humidity, which only wreaks havoc on my hair (even after an hour in front of a hairdryer I still end up with frizzy hair)!  So lately I’ve been air drying to camouflage the frizz and although I am not 100 percent sold on it, it’s easy to do. I use the hanna thermal protectant oil and Sally Hershberger Shagg Spray that I found for only $2.99 at Ross to get a piece-y look and it works great.  Along with the big hair that I to call “beachy waves” I like to keep my outfits easy and comfy as well.  I tend to keep my focus on tops because bottoms always consist of cut off shorts, a cotton mini or rolled up jeans.  Every year I get on a new kick: last year I was all about asymmetrical tanks and this year it’s graphic tees.   I got this one from Shopbop and although a little bit more than I usually pay for tee, it’s totally worth it!  It’s got a roomy fit which is perfect for summer; the length makes it look like a perfectly worn-in mens tee and my favorite part is the length of the sleeves – its just long enought to be able to give it a nice roll if I’m in the mood too.

For the past  week or so the temp here in Florida has been in the 90’s, but luckily we got a short break from the heat and humidity and it’s an easy breezy 80 outside.  What does sthat mean for me?  For one, it’s the chance to wear something other than shorts and a tank!  I originally bought this floral high-low top to wear  over a white mini dress, but I pulled out my “skinny” skinny jeans and they actually fit…I was so excited that I threw them on instead.

High-Low Floral Top – $14.99 at Ross

Comfy Tee & White Blazer

I love me a comfy worn in tee!  I snag the unstained ones from my husbands draw and cut off the collar to give it a off the shoulder look.  Normally I switch out of them when I’m going out but my latest tee is sort of a obsession and I wanted to work it into a outfit. I immediately thought of a Chloe Sevigny Copycat I did a few years back and decided to use my white blazer. I love the fresh look the white blazer gives the tee and denim shorts!

What I’m Wearing:

White Blazer – $39 from Tobi.com

Distressed Denim Shorts – $19.99 from American Eagle

Sandals – $24.99 from a local boutique

Purple & Polka Dots

I’m not a huge fan of purple but when I caught a glimpse of the $5 price tag on this dress, I immediately yanked it off the rack.  It was then that I noticed the flecks of sparkle and the POCKETS.  I was in love!  My immediate thought was to pair it with my denim jacket but I thought I’d give it a quirky look by layering it over a polka dot button down and of course a belt (I try to belt just about anything I wear – it’s kinda my thing).   I love the definition and personality the belt gives my outfits.

The Formula: Stripes

The old saying, “if it ain’t broke. don’t fix it,” perfectly describes how I feel about must-have basic pieces in fashion. Trends come and go but basics never go out of style, particularly certain patterns and colors.  To that end I decided to start a series of posts called The Formula to highlight my favorite style “ingredients.”  The most obvious one to start with is stripes and if you follow my posts then it’s obvious by now that I love stripes.  I literally wear the pattern in some shape or form about 3 times a week. Tip: The thinner the stripe the better – keep that in mind when choosing anything with stripes.

“For every two minutes of glamour, there are eight hours of hard work.”  I happened to see this quote by Jessica SavitchIand and it’s so true – especially in what I do as a fashion blogger and stay at home mom.  While I have all the essentials to quickly pull together a quick look, there’s lots of times where I barely make it out of my house in fold over yoga pants (it’s a huge no-no, I know, but it is what is!).  Here’s the thing:  while I don’t always dress very glamorous I refuse to leave the house without lipgloss and mascara.  Weird?  Sure.  But I think it’s perfectly okay to give yourself a break and wear black yoga pants, a black tank, flip flops, fab lipgloss, mascara and still feel beautiful. Last week I was sent  some makeup samples by Roxanne Alaimo-Esdailes and Mark Cohen, who launched an online venture called bffcosmetix.com. First of all I’m a sucker for cute packaging (which it comes in) and a crafty motto ( “b fun, b fresh, b fearless, just b”). The product line includes lipgloss, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, and blush to name a few, and right now they are only charging a $1 promotional price for the lipgloss! I found the colors bold and the quality high.  My favorites were the Red Hottie and Glisten Up but the 7 colors are available for only $6.  Check out the colors below and use coupon code Jblog to receive a free eyeliner with your order.  For more visit www.bffcosmetix.com.
