Francesca’s Fun Floral Display – Embrace the Creativity Around You

Happy May everyone!

I hope that you are having a great week so far. For an assignment for my Parsons x Teen Vogue fashion class, I had to take a shot of  window display at a retail store that I thought was pretty interesting.

I went to my local mall, also the mall I currently work at and looked around at numerous displays. The one shown below at Francesca’s caught my eye because it epitomizes spring.

. The store had beautiful potted plants along the base of the mannequins possibly representing flowers blossoming in the springtime. The colors were varying shades of pinks, blues, and whites.

My favorite outfit displayed was the pink choker top with the blue shorts. In the background you can also see that throughout some of the store the visual merchandising team kept up with the floral and pastel colors and potted plants theme displayed in the window.

I think that this is a great example of a creative and informative window display. Every once in a while I think that you should go to a place you never been or a place you don’t frequent often and just take in your surroundings.

A lot of creative statues, buildings, parks, and people are right in your hometown or neighborhood. Try to meet some of those creative people and visit some of those beautiful places, because you will never know what will inspire you.

Enjoy the rest of your week lovelies, you will be hearing from me again soon! ❤

Sporty Chic at Work

Happy Wonderful Wednesday!

I hope that your week is going great! The weather in Baltimore right now is amazing. It is definitely starting to feel more and more like spring.

Even though I am working inside on this beautiful spring day, that doesn’t mean I can’t look fab and ready for spring!

As you may or may not know, I currently work at Nordstrom. I love being able to wear whatever I want (appropriately of course!) to work. Today, I decided to wear a navy blue tshirt dress.

I literally just purchased this dress yesterday from Forever 21 and it is so comfy, but yet still stylish. The blue is perfect for spring!

I paired the dress with one of my favorite pairs of shoes, floral vans! Floral is, of course a great print for spring because you will be matching all of the gorgeous flowers that are blooming.

I want to encourage you today to step outside of your comfort zone and wear a sporty look if you normally dress more feminine or try a more feminine look if sporty is your normal go to style. Don’t be afraid to push the envelope with your style, you won’t regret it!

Enjoy the rest of your week lovelies!

Jersey Bomber Jacket

At heart, I am a total preppy, dressy, girly-girl, but every once in a while I like to step outside of the box and wear something a little more sporty.

I recently invested in a jersey bomber jacket which I love! It is a gorgeous cream color with white and black stripes on the bottom, collar, and sleeves.

I purchased this lovely jacket from a cute store called Charlotte Russe. I paired the jacket with black Calvin Klein jeans and rainbow converses…those shoes are amazing!

New Hair, Blogoversary, and More!!!

Hello wonderful ladies and gentlemen! I’ve missed you all ❤DSC_0015~2

Sorry I’ve been away for a little while. My last semester of college is very busy and packed with things to do such as my 2 internships, 6 classes, and working!

But I am making it and am almost done college…yay! Sooo much has happened over these past few weeks!

In case you didn’t notice, I don’t know how you couldn’t have 😛 But Coral Buttons got a few lovely changes. I celebrated my one year Blogoversary on September 17th…congrats to Coral Buttons!!! *fireworks, balloons, cake*

outfitSo in honor of my Blogoversary I decided to update my blog a little bit to keep things fresh, new, funky, and chic!

Also, last weekend I got a new hairstyle that I never had before! I got extensions in a style called Marley Twists.

The twists are so lightweight and easy to manage and I think they look super adorable. My hair is up in a bun with half of the twists hanging down in the back.

Recently, I just took out the bun, so pictures of that to come soon! I also got a new clothing item that I would love to show off to my gorgeous readers called a cape.

In the picture you see the light coral colored cape. Literally, you throw the cape over anything and it adds a fancier feel to it.outfit2

For church this past Sunday I wore my cape over a fitted black dress with a colorful flower pattern on it. I paired this outfit with black ankle booties.

Shout out to one of my internships, Velvet Lounge, for showing me about this lovely new clothing item. Another shout out to me little brother who always plays the photographer role for my photos you see here on Coral Buttons 🙂

I will definitely try my best to stay on top of blog posts and comments and get more posts out to all of you!

Thanks again for supporting my blog for over a year now, many more awesome years to come.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Love Tati

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy sunny, beautiful Mother’s Day to all of the natural and spiritual memothers! I hope you all enjoy your day ❤

I want to thank all of my fellow women fashion bloggers who support my still fairly new blog and encourage me everyday to continue writing ^-^

I wanted to show all of you lovely readers my Mother’s Day outfit!

Today I wore a fitted sea foam green dress with a peplum-esque style on the sides. This is one of my favorite dresses and it only comes out on special occasions 🙂

I paired myme 2 dress with a big floppy straw hat with a black band around it. I also wore my newly purchased, black gladiator sandals which I am in love it!

For my accessories, of course, I wore my pearls! I wore a pearl necklace, pearl bracelets, and pearl earrings.

Overall, I think this outfit is very simple and chic, but also has a nice formal and classy touch to it.

Whatever you lovely ladies decide to do on this day, I hope you have a great time!

Prom Season

Prom photos are appearing all over my social media accounts,keep-calm-it-s-prom-season so it is easy to say that it is prom season. I can’t believe that my own prom was just three years ago!

It is surreal to think that three years ago was my senior prom and in just one year I will be graduating college. Life is truly amazing ❤

In this post I wanted to show my lovely readers my chic prom look. It was an adventure finding my prom dress because I looked in at least 5 to 6 different place for my dress.

I didn’t really know what style of dress I wanted, but I knew I wanted it to be blue or teal specifically since that is my favorite color. At one place I found a beautiful high-low, feathery light blue dress but it was wayyyy overpriced ($600 to be exact!).

prom2So I left the lovely feather dress behind and looked elsewhere. I went to a popular mall in my area and stumbled upon a store named Pretty Woman, which had dresses for all occasions.

I went in and found a gorgeous dress, my only problem with it was that it was black! I really didn’t want to wear black on my prom night, so I asked the owner if she could get the same dress in teal and that is how I found the gorgeous dress I wore to prom. (and it was only $80!)

My dress was a teal halter top A-line gown with rhinestones lined down the middle of it. It was ruched at the torso area and was floor length.

I paired the dress with dangling silver studded earrings, a lipromght blue and white corsage, and silver heels. My prom date, who is also my lovely boyfriend, matched me perfectly and I was super worried about matching because he hadn’t seen my dress until the day of prom!

He wore a teal button up shirt with a blue and white tie, a white vest, white dress pants, and sleek white dress shoes. Prom was a lot of fun and all of my classmates looked beautiful and handsome.

Prom was probably one of my most fashionable days ever lol ^-^

Boho Chic

Happy May everyone! The weather is gorgeous here in Maryland!

bohoI can finally lose all of those layers! Next week is final exam week and on Tuesday I am out for my summer break! I am so excited 🙂

It is also supposed to be in the 80’s next week so I am looking forward to that as well ❤

This outfit is inspired by the lovely weather and imagining I am on a lovely tropical beach.

My boho chic outfit comes in many parts. The multicolored pattern skirt I am wearing is actually a dress.

boho chicI rolled the uppermost part of the dress down and tucked it behind my woven brown belt. I then paired my new skirt with a denim and lace button up shirt.

I tucked my shirt in my skirt and viola, a stylish boho chic outfit. I paired this outfit with blue lace TOMS.

I wore my hair in my wavy hairstyle and added a silver studded headband to it for a touch of sparkle!

You all know I love my pearls, so I wore a pearl necklace, pearl bracelets, and pearl earrings with this outfit.
