Work OOTD: Jessica Simpson Tie Dye Maxi Skirt via Gwynnie Bee

Originally, I had a coral tank on, but a few the beads on it fell off, so I made a last minute switch to this color! I have always loved tie dye stuff, and I think part of that is because it makes me think of my childhood in the 90's. So much fun! This is a more grown-up tie dye look I suppose, but I still really enjoyed wearing this!
The skirt is an item I picked out as part of a free trial I am doing with Gwynnie Bee. You can try them for only $10 for your first month!

OOTD: Father's Day/My Birthday Party

Marky and I traveled to my hometown to celebrate Father's Day and to have a late birthday party for me. Had so much fun with my family. I always make them take photos with me every time I'm there. Watching us try to get ready and pose for each picture is more than comical. I think our routine could be it's own reality show lol. Below is a photo of my brother and I with our daddy and some outfit photos. Hope you enjoy! xo

Gwynnie Bee: My Looks and Shopping Experience so far!

Gwynnie Bee is the first subscription service that I've ever tried, so of course, I was a little nervous about what the experience would be like. I had passed on beauty subscription services, movie services, but getting a Netflix style service for my closet...yes, please! Plus it's only $10 for your first month.

I have a habit of buying clothes for special events, wearing them only for that one event, and then they just sit in my closet. Wearing something only once doesn't always work out to be an economical choice. Occasionally, I do find an amazing deal though, love deals! I also like to be able to show a lot of different looks on my blog/vlog.

I thought Gwynnie Bee would be great for me because I can try fabulous new clothes, even clothes that are normally out of my price range, and then just send them back when I'm done and then choose new styles. I can keep them as long as I need to, or I can send items right back if they don't work for me.

The shopping experience has been soooo much fun. I went through all of Gwynnie Bee's clothing options, tops, dresses, skirts, jackets, blazers, etc. They offer things from so many brands and designers that I've always wanted to try. I saw IGIGI, Kiyonna, Calvin Klein, ASOS, eloquii, Land's End, and so many more. A lot of the items were things I've been dreaming of trying, but never had the opportunity to do so. Shopping dream come true, right? I selected my favorite pieces and added them to my virtual closet. After I filled my closet, I was so excited that I kept checking back to see which pieces were going to be sent to me. Soon after, a package with three of my picks were sent to me. Yay! I received a Calvin Klein dress, an IGIGI dress and a dress from One World. All fit perfectly according to the size charts provided, and I loved them!

As I finished wearing those pieces, I sent them back in the prepaid envelopes provided. A few days after sending the first piece back, a new piece arrived. It arrived about 3 days after I notified them that I was returning something. I couldn't believe how fast it was, and I was so thrilled about the next dress I received. It was a beautiful blue Kiyonna dress with a sweetheart neckline and it was absolutely perfect for my birthday dinner. I could not have been any happier!

So far, everything has been totally smooth and I have no complaints. Shipping has been fast, clothing quality has been top notch and I have loved every piece I've received. I've been able to try new brands and try new styles. I branched out a little bit with cuts of dresses, necklines, colors, etc. I am having so much fun playing around with new looks.

If you want to see what all of the fashionable fuss is about and try them for only $10 your first month, just click here.

Check out the styles I've tried  (and loved) so far with the video and photos below. You can enlarge each photo by clicking on it.

 This print/color block Calvin Klein dress was soooo comfortable and I loved how it looked. The fabric was stretchy, which I LOVE! I can wear this all day, feel stylish and still be comfy.

 Wearing a fun, colorful dress from One World was perfect for a sunny afternoon. I wanted to try something different, so I chose this dress. It has unique hi-lo hemline and bright, bold, beautiful colors. The sleeves are roomy, and that's a dream come true for me. This one also has some stretch to it, so it's another stylish, comfy combo.

I fell in love with this dress from IGIGI. It's the first IGIGI dress I've ever worn. I received this just in time to film my wedding guest lookbook video with Mimi on YT. It would be perfect for a summer wedding, work, a date, or just whenever you want to feel fabulous.

For my birthday dinner, I was so excited to be able to wear this beautiful blue Kiyonna dress. It arrived a couple of days before my birthday dinner, and I couldn't have been happier. It was the absolute perfect dress for the occasion and I felt amazing in this dress. It's a blue wrap dress with a gorgeous sweetheart neckline. Simply amazing- that's all I can say for the design of this dress.

Style and comfort are my two main priorities when it comes to fashion. All of these looks have worked out perfectly with my own style and keeping me comfy all day. Can't wait to try more styles. I'll keep you posted!


I have been trying out Gwynnie Bee through a free trial offer as a blogger affiliate. You can also try it for free! All opinions are my own.
