STYLE| BELTED RIBBED JUMPSUIT

Happy Monday ya’ll!!

To think that today is my last day in southern paradise nearly brings tears to my eyes. I’ve had a fabulous time here in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Every time we visit, we discover new activities to partake in  and a plethora of sites to discover. Coming within the next few days, I will run down my top favorite HHI places from boating excursions to restaurants and bars. In the meantime, check out this really cute ode to the 70s jumpsuit I wore few days ago. Leave it to me to wait ’til my 30s to discover the versatility of sneakers! My Adidas Stan Smith kicks have been a go-to during this vacation and they literally go with everything! Goes to show, we never stop evolving.

STYLE| FASHION NOVA JEANS

If you’re on social media, you would have come across celebrities galore wearing their FashionNova Jeans. After years of full figured women like myself deep sighing, FashionNova has now introduced their plus line referred to as FashionNovaCurve. I was contacted by them to test out a few pairs of their denim and today I’m sharing with you the Glistening deconstructed jeans.

I’m currently on vacation down south but made it a mission to bring them with me. I figured between the holes and the slashes, my legs wouldn’t be too hot and I was right. They have a great stretch to them and slightly high-waisted. I’m wearing a 1x. The only alteration I made was to make them a little shorter which is almost always a given. The woes of being short I tell ya. Their pieces are really inexpensive and best part, get 15% off your purchase with my code: SANDEEXO. Let me know how you like them!

STYLE| White Off the Shoulder Dress

Hope you guys enjoyed reading my last post about our trip to Savannah. While there, the temperature was nearly unbearable. Aware of this, I made sure to pack pieces that were no fuss in fabrics that were breathable. This white bardot dress fit the bill. I decided to wear it with the arm straps underneath my armpits and fresh pair of white Stan Smith Adidas sneakers.

While there, I conquered my fear of learning to ride a bike. Our hotel had a large offering of the cutest bicycles to ride around the island. I picked this mint colored 2 wheeler, I think that’s what they’re called, for a spin. I fell about four times before I somewhat picked it up. Next time, I won’t wear a dress…

TRAVEL| Top 5 Places to Eat And Visit In Savannah Georgia

If you’re following me on social media (IG, FB, Twitter), you’d know that I’m currently vacationing down south. We chose Savannah, Georgia as our destination because of it’s charm, history and it’s close proximity to the last leg of our travels, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

Much of Savannah’s charm lies at it’s Historic District. This isn’t our first trip here. You can actually read my in-depth breakdown on what to do in this post from a few years back. Every time we visit, we like to dine at a different restaurant, discover new places and amenities. Below I’ve compiled some of the new places we discovered this year.

1) Zunzis: This place is a must if you’re a foodie or just appreciate a great sandwich. Personally, I’m not big of those but after hearing such great things about their mega sandwiches, I thought it’d be a disservice to not at least try. The flavors are a combination of Swiss, Italian, South African and Dutch influences.

2) Vics on The River: The day we flew in, we had lunch at Vics. Located on the river front, it’s a perfect mix of a great view and appetizing menu. My family and I ordered the Shrimp Po Boy, Blue cheese Calamari, and buttermilk double fried chicken. The service was fast and as warm as you’d expect down south.

3) Leopold’s Ice Cream: At the recommendation of one my readers off instagram, we visited Leopold’s for ice cream.  I can’t begin to explain the burst of flavor that was happening in my mouth. It’s quite pricy for ice cream, but once I had a taste, it pretty much made up for it. I highly recommend a cone especially during a really hot day.

4) The Olde Pink House:  If you don’t visit any of the places in Savannah, you must dine at the Olde Pink House. The house is nearly two hundred years old and goes back to old historic Savannah.  There are several rooms that you can dine at but our favorite is the hall complete with crystal chandeliers throughout and original detailing like crown molding, carvings and portraits.  This time around, I had the apricot flounder with mac and cheese and their signature cocktail drink- the pink lady. I highly recommend this establishment. Just make sure you make reservations.

5) Westin Savannah Harbor Hotel & Resort: Since we’ve started visiting Savannah, we stayed at our fair share of establishments, but by far this hotel is our favorite. It’s located on it’s own little island directly adjacent to the River Walk waterfront of Historic Savannah. There’s a free water ferry that brings you to historic downtown in a matter of 5 mintues or so. Check-in is really easy and they have a late checkout. The pool area is complete with a large pool, __, jacuzzi, and fire pit. It also has in-door restaurant which truthfully I would not recommend. The servers are great but the be prepared to wait a long time (for us, 45minutes for chicken and waffles). There are so many other places where you can eat at. Unfortunately, they get a thumbs down from me in regards to their in-house restaurant.

Move Over Denim Blues, Its about Denim Hues with Old Navy

Special thanks to @OldNavy for sponsoring this post.

This summer, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Old Navy in showing different ways to wear many of their pieces. Last month, it was all about the versatility of their basic t-shirts, which for me weren’t so basic. In case you missed it, you can read my colorful post here. For the month of August, it’s all about their denim. For a full figured woman, finding the right denim can be an insurmountable feat, that I know all too well.  Aside from being reasonably priced, the best part of Old Navy denim is again, the versatility of the different cuts (high-rise, mid-rise, and low-rise) along with the various washes. For this month’s campaign, I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and forgo blue denim.

“Trends come and go but denim always need refreshing”

I can’t agree enough with that statement. Keeping that in mind, I decided to style a pair of blush pink and grey jeans- a first. Because I work in a business casual work environment, jeans are acceptable as long as it’s presentable and not worn during meetings. With that being said, I decided to style a work look that works everyday, not just on casual Fridays.

Although Old Navy carries a versatile line of jeans, my favorite cut is the Rockstar. Named ever so appropriately, these jeans hug every curve of my body, in a good way, while channeling Beyonce down the streets of New York.  Oppose to the traditional, I decided to test out their Pull-on Rockstar Jeggings in grey instead. Ladies, I can’t begin to express how much I love these jeans. I mean, look at them! It literally looks like they were made for me, all 5’4 of me. Not only does it help sculpt the tush, it’s so comfortable and really feels like you’re wearing a pair of leggings. For the office, I paired it with a flowy white detailed blouse from their Modern Bohemian Collection. My office is freezing so while in-doors, I wore this Old Navy blazer with it.

Here are some other washes the Rockstar Jeggings come in:

 

Two words: PINK JEANS. It may not be for everyone but being the uber feminine woman that I am, I immediately was drawn to them at the store. Again, in the Rockstar cut, these beauties come with a lot of stretch and a little destruction. This look works perfect for the office as well as everyday. The Old Navy floral top (same print come in a dress too) in varied shades of pinks and purples, was the perfect pairing with these jeans. I also added a utility vest to the look for a little sporty twist. For the fall months, I already for-see plum and even burgundy tops and sweaters with it.

Get the look below:

Best part of working with Old Navy on this denim post is being able to pick pieces that I ordinarily wouldn’t gravitate towards. I’m so happy I was able to step out of my comfort zone and try something new with these pieces. Even though I will forever love a great pair of denim blues, denim hues at Old Navy is a current obsession. I highly recommend you ladies give it a test run-you won’t be disappointed.

With so many options out there, the pickings are immense. Whether you’re plus, petite or average size, there is a top out there for you. Not to mention, they come at every price point. Below, I wore my maxi off-the-shoulder blouse with wide leg pants last seen here.
