New Look, Most Complimented Item, and a Word of Advice

Is there one item in your closet that seems to get an outstanding amount of compliments? I know there has to be at least one piece that does every time you wear it!
For me, that’s this blouse that I purchased in South Korea over 3 years ago. Its lightweight, sleeveless, sheer and the collar is accented with gold triangles to give it an
elegant touch.

I paired this blouse, with pink joggers, and black lace TOMS. Overall, I would consider this more of a dress down look for me, simple and chic, with a dash of sportiness. Also, in case you haven’t noticed from the pictures, I have another new hairstyle!

This style is called feed-in braids, because the hairstylist “feeds-in” or blends my natural hair with the fake hair to create this gorgeous look. What do you think about it and would you try this look out?

Now, this post isn’t to brag about my shirt or hairstyle, it simply came to fruition based on a thought I had yesterday when I wore this shirt to work and everyone seemed to ask where I got it from, how much it cost, etc. It is one of my favorite pieces because it is one of the few items I have in my closet that I purchased overseas.

The important information I would love for you to grasp from this post is don’t let your clothes be the only definition of what makes you you. Don’t hide behind fancy clothes or an outlandish style in order to hide your true self.

Having an unique sense of style isn’t a problem, I love my eclectic style. But I also know that when I dress down in a t shirt and leggings, I am still beautiful, strong, and I should still feel like myself.

Don’t let your clothing mask your true self; let your clothing speak volumes and add to the beauty and great personality that is already there. Hope that this encouraged you on this lovely Hump Day. Enjoy the rest of your week lovelies!

Kehlani SweetSexySavage Tour Concert & Outfit Details!!

If I could describe last night’s concert in one word it would be unforgettable.

Kehlani is as beautiful on the inside as she is gorgeous on the outside. Her energy is so down to earth, relatable, and positive that you can’t help but be in a great mood at her concert.
She wore a sheer, white sweatshirt with the word “SPLASH” on it, black bra underneath, white cutoff shorts, nude tights, and black combat boots. Effortlessy stylish in my opinion.
I got to hear my favorite songs from her album sung live which blew me away. Her vocals were stunning.

She gave advice on taking care of yourself, not having self-doubt, and giving to back to the community. The aura of a Kehlani concert is really something you can’t put into words.
And I was so close to the stage as well which made the experience feel even more real and personal. Big shoutout to my boyfriend Shawn for going with me, who said he also had a great time as well.

Outfit details:
Topshop Tokyo Romper- $45 from Nordstrom
Sandals- $15 from American Eagle
The romper was a perfect concert peice because it kept me cool and was easy to dance and jump around in.

90’s Baby Style

Hope July is treating everyone well so far!

July has been full of excitement so far for me. I recently just got back from a wonderful resort in Virgina called Massanutten.20170705_174657

There I went go-karting, played mini golf, spent the 4th of July at a waterpark, and even ziplined for the first time!

This post is about one of the outfits I wore on the trip. I called this look 90’s baby style, hence the title!

20170705_174707

I wore a low cut back bodysuit with characters from one of my favorite series growing up, Rugrats! I paired the bodysuit with blue shorts which came with an adorable brown woven  belt.

To finish the look off, I wore a pair of black lace Toms.

As a 90’s kid, we are all at the time in our lives where we are getting established in our careers, building and maintaining relationships, and striving to achieve our biggest dreams and goals.

20170705_174710

I’m going to achieve a big goal this year that has been in the works for over a year. This goal will be revealed to you in a post within the next few months 🙂

To achieve that goal I can’t just sit and hope for the best, having faith that things will work out is great, but you must also put action behind your faith.

Remember that your dreams and goals are achievable. I believe in you and never stop believing in yourself.

Have a great week! ❤

#SummerStyle

It’s Summertime!

Happy 3rd day of Summer everyone. I am sure that already you’ve overheard the phrase, “is it hot enough for ya?”

20170621_102211

It’s been in the high 80s and up in Baltimore these past few days so of course it was time to break out the sunglasses and breezy summer dresses.

To bring in summer the right way I chose a floral bodycon dress, my neutral shades, and lace Toms. The dress is comfortable and very flattering similar shape to dress I wore in my last post.

20170621_102401

And Toms are great shoes especially for heavy walking or standing during the day. And the money used to purchase them gives a child in need a pair of shoes as well.

Remember to stay hydrated in this extreme heat, wear the proper sun protection, and stay as cool as possible with airy, comfy clothes.

Enjoy your weekend!

Stripes and Curves

Last weekend, I wore a striped bodycon dress to my little brother’s graduation. It was an exciting event!

I paired my bodycon dress with rust orange sandals. I love this dress because the colors are great year round and the pattern makes it unique.

Not only are those factors true, but I think the dress is quite flattering. Bodycon dresses are meant to be fitted and show off your curves.

Don’t be ashamed to wear fitted dresses and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t wear one because of your body shape!

We all have body insecurities and parts of us we may not like as much as others. Embrace your curves, love your body, and stay stylish!

Daya by Zendaya Bomber

Hello lovelies!

I apologize for the delay on this look, it was suppose to be up on my blog way sooner but here it is.

I have to say this is one of my favorite looks ever and its super simple to put together and comfortable.

daya 1

I purchased the blush bomber  from Daya by Zendaya. A clothing line started by the outspoken, inspirational, and beautiful Zendaya Coleman.

Not only did I want to support her because she is an amazing role model and a black business owner, but also because I never saw a bomber as chic as this one. Her prices are also affordable!

daya 2

The color is gorgeous and it is long! Leave it zipped for a chic look in itself or if you leave it open its a perfect jacket to throw over almost anything…dresses, a top and skirt/pants, or how I wore it.

I paired the bomber with a black crop top from Charlotte Russe, black leggings from Forever 21, and black boots from Nordstrom.

Head over to dayabyzendaya.com to check out this bomber and other stylish gear!

Wonder Woman – Empowering, Emotional, and Inspirational

Last night, I had the pleasure of seeing an early showing of Wonder Woman with my boyfriend Shawn.

This movie gets a 10/10 for more! It was truly amazing. Superhero films may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this wasn’t just a film about a superheroine.

Wonder Woman touched on women’s rights, the truth about war, racism, sexism, and so much more. Gal Gadot stunned in costume and as an actress. She played a truly believable, kick-butt, strong and determined Wonder Woman. In short, she was a BOSS!

ww

The soundtrack was engaging and aesthetically pleasing, never a dull moment in the plot, and of course had it’s fair share of twists and turns. I just wanted to give a shoutout to this movie here on Coral Buttons to motivate you to go out and see it!

If you need some inspiration, a kick in the butt to get you going with some goals or situations you are facing, go see this movie! You will be able to see parts of Wonder Woman displayed in your own life ❤

Have a lovely weekend everyone and go see the movie, you won’t regret it!
