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.
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!
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.
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! ❤
Happy 3rd day of Summer everyone. I am sure that already you’ve overheard the phrase, “is it hot enough for ya?”
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.
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!
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!
Dress & Sandals: Forever 21 ❤
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
Hello lovelies. Hope all is well 🙂
Can you believe that June is one day away! Wasn’t it New Year’s Day like a few days ago??
As I mentioned before, I consider 2017 the year of change because I have a few big goals I am achieving this year.
So with me focusing on change this year I decided to switch up my hairstyle and try out a wig. Not only is it a cute look to try, but also gives my real hair a much needed break.
The first tip when it comes to wig shopping is deciding which hairstyle you think will fit your face. I went with a shoulder length bob with a bang. It’s simple and easy to upkeep and when I had relaxed hair, bobs were my go-to style so I knew it would look okay!
The second tip is wig maintenance. Making sure the hair is clean, straightened or curled (depending on your hairstyle), and washed when necessary.
The third tip is braid up your hair underneath the wig so that your hair lies flat. The fourth tip and most important tip in my opinion is making sure your natural hair under the wig is properly taken care of.
Don’t neglect your natural hair because you have a wig on!!!
Make sure your hair is moisturized, braided up, and, in short, properly protected. Still wash your hair as often as you did before wearing the wig.
The fifth tip is to enjoy every moment with your new look and love the fact that you can take it off and go back to your usual hairstyle whenever you want to.
Hope this post peaked your wig interest! Enjoy the rest of your week!
