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!

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!

Breaking Fashion Rules!

Good morning everyone and happy almost weekend! Today I want to focus on a topic that I am really passionate about: breaking fashion rules.

I am sure that you’ve heard one, some, or all of these rules listed below:

1) Dont wear white after labor day
2) Don’t mix prints or patterns
3) Sequins or sparkle is only for nighttime
4) Everyone should have *insert item here* in their wardrobe

If I had a way to delete these fashion rules and others from our society I would! I recently wore the outfit pictured in this post which “broke” one of the rules: mixing prints.

Both my top and skirt were tribal print but different variations of it. Some people would literally freak out over that, but I don’t.

Fashion is all about creating your own style and being original. So when I wear a black and white crop top with a seafoam green skirt, both with patterns on them, I should feel stylish and chic and not have to worry about breaking rules.

I paired this look with black heels because of the black in my top, and I felt that it truly tied the look together. I want to encourage you to break these fashion rules and others on a daily basis.

If you want to wear white after labor day, do so, white is a great color to wear as jeans, tops, shoes and even accessories. Sequins and sparkle are perfectly fine any time of the day whether you are just going out for a walk in the park, to work, or out to party.

Also, don’t worry about that one item everyone should have in their wardrobe because you don’t want to dress like everyone else. Have items in your closet that you love.

I hope this post motivated you to break these rules and do fashion your way; have fun with it!

Enjoy your weekend lovelies!

2017 is coming…Are you ready?

The weather is getting colder, we are actually expecting snow this weekend in Baltimore!

Christmas is 12 days away, the new year is 19 days away…this year has flown by.

2017 will be here before you know it, but are you ready for it?

Are you ready to reach your dreams and goals in 2017? What are some of the major changes you are looking forward to next year?

Here is a list of 5 of my own goals for the new year:

1) Submit articles to online magazines and maybe become a blogger or regular contributor for them

2) Reach out to more stylists, fashion bloggers, and people who run their own fashion related companies on social media and look into collaborating with them and/or becoming a brand ambassador

3) Redo/improve my blog and post weekly

4) Buy a new laptop and video camera to start working on my own youtube channel

5) Look into more fashion related events I can attend in Baltimore

There is a #1 goal that will also take place next year that I will announce early in the new year with all of the details in another blog post.

Stay positive as Christmas and New Year rolls around. You can achieve all of your wildest dreams and aspirations, just work hard at it!

Love Tati  ❤

Hello Fall, Goodbye Summer!

Yesterday was the first day of fall for 2016 ! Fall is my second favorite season after spring. I get to wear over-sized sweaters, warm patterned leggings, and break out the cute boots I haven’t seen since last winter.

Instead of an outfit shot today, I put together a little fall mood board. This is just a few things that gets me excited and inspired for the fall.

fall-moodboard

Fall trees: the red and orange trees signify change is coming and change is a positive and neceesary thing. I am welcoming change this fall.

Lipstick: you have to pamper yourself every once in a while. I don’t wear makeup often but when I do, gorgeous lipstick is a must. And this color is perfect for fall.

Sweater and booties: helps you stay warm and walk through all of the storms and chilly weather fall brings. And look stylish while doing it!

Cookies and a warm drink: makes me think about being cozy and comfortable. Every once in a while you have to take a step back from your busy life and enjoy the little things.

I hope my moodboard is as motivational and inspirational to you as it is to me. Try creating one of your own and let me know how it goes! ❤

Be Inspired <3

Some quotes are serious, others are sad, and some are truly hilarious. Sometimes quotes can be motivational and inspirational. Celebrities are always talking and they give a lot of advice, but sometimes that advice is overlooked or misunderstood. Here are a few uplifting celebrity quotes and how you can apply them to your daily life.

1) “If you are feeling low, don’t despair. The sun has a sinking spell every night, but it comes back up every morning.” – Dolly Parton

What Ms. Parton is saying here is that it is okay to be sad for a season because that depression or sadness shall past. Brighter days are in your future and you may not see them right now, but they are surely coming soon.

2) “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” – CoCo Chanel

Why would you want to be like everybody else? You should strive to be different and unique and be the best you you can be. Coco is telling you that you will leave your mark on this Earth by standing out and above the crowd. If you do that, you can’t be beat!

3) “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” – Audrey Hepburn

What Audrey Hepburn is telling you is to follow your dreams no matter what. Don’t let any dream seem to big or too small. If a dream seems impossible, remember that it actually is possible. Work hard at it and don’t let anything or anyone stop you from reaching your goals and dreams.

4) “Smile and let everyone know that today, you’re a lot stronger than you were yesterday.” – Drake

Believe it or not, smiling helps you feel happier and more confident. Whether you are having the worst day or the best day, try to smile through the struggle. Who knows, your smile might bring joy to someone else who is struggling as well. Drake believes that you are stronger than you were yesterday and so should you!

5) “I don’t know what my path is yet. I’m just walking on it.” – Olivia Newton-John

I think that this is a perfect quote for college students or college grads. It’s terrifying and stressful figuring out what you want to do with your life, but sometimes a path is laid out in front of you. All you have to do is walk the path, hope for the best, stay motivated, and truly believe that you will reach that final destination at the end of the path.
