Beautiful Trendy Jewelry from Tara Lynn’s Boutique!

Happy Summer!  Hope your 4th of July was poppin!

If you’re anything like me, then you LOVE finding beautifully, unique jewelry pieces.  I stumbled upon a STUNNING necklace and I wanted to share some information with you guys about it.

Do you remember when we looked at some super cute clothes from Tara Lynn’s Boutique in a previous post?  This place is one of my favorites, because you see a lot of clothing that appears to be one-of-a-kind (you don’t see it on everyone else)!  The price point is a bit on the higher-end (not crazy expensive though), and honestly, good quality, unique clothing is SO worth it, right?

Now, back to their jewelry–I had the honor of receiving this complimentary in exchange for my honest review.  What do you think?

TL necklace 2

 

The picture just simply does not do it justice!    It’s well-constructed, and I love the versatility of it!  It’s one of those pieces that seriously anyone could wear…young or old, edgy or not!  It’s heavy enough so that you know it’s made with good quality materials, but not so heavy that it’s uncomfortable to wear.  I had most fun sporting it with a plain tank, but you could most certainly wear this with your Sunday’s finest!

Additionally, they have fantastic customer service!  This place is a win-win in my book…great fashion, cool jewelry….

So, have you heard of Tara Lynn’s Boutique?  What did you see on their website that you love for summer 2016?

***I’ll let you in on a little secret, I have more super cute things to share with you from this company!  Stay-tuned!***

Outside the Box: Hoochie-Mama Wedding Wear

married

It’s spring and lovvvvvvvvve is in the air!  Two of my friends have upcoming nuptials this year and it got me to daydreaming and thinking…what if I was getting married on a beach somewhere?  Or somewhere casual where it’s hot and sunny and shorts would be the bizness?  Yes, yes, I’m already married.  My wedding was faboo and I wore a traditional gown which I loved!  But originally we wanted to get married in Florida on the beach…

 

Do any of you girls daydream like this and play the what if game? Oh, you don’t?  Well, you’re in luck–since I do, I’m going to share with you some of my recent findings!  Let’s play…Let’s Get Married (thank you Jagged Edge), spring, 2016!!!!

 

The Behind Bars Romper is super cute and casual!  Not too skanky for the faint at heart, but just the right amount of sexy pizzaz!

  • Draped Back with Caged Insert
  • Embroidered Armhole Detailing
  • Fully Lined
  • 100% Polyester

 

 

 

Oh, so you’re not a virgin you say?  No worries.  You don’t have to wear white.  Here’s a sexy little Ivory number entitled Summer Romance Romper for your viewing pleasure!  I like how this one tricks the eye into believing that it’s a skirt!  But low and behold, it’s shorts.  Werk!

Also available in Black and Yellow

  • V Neckline
  • Lace Top
  • Line Bottom
  • Crossed Back
  • 100% Nylon

 

 

Very simple, but with a sexy peek-a-boo midriff, the Dove-Like Romper would make a landing to remember!  Jazz it up with some strapy heels or if it’s beachy, flat, sparkly silver sandals.

  • Crochet Contrast
  • Zipper Back
  • Lined
  • 100% Polyester

 

 

You a member of the “I hate my legs crew” but still got a hot bod and like to flaunt it?  Then maybe the Neck Deep Jumpsuit is your choice of poison.  This sucker is unforgiving though, and you better make sure you’ve got some lineless undies!  Ijs!

Staying Fashionable with Tara Lynn’s Boutique

 

Have you heard of Tara Lynn’s Boutique?  I first became aware of them on Instagram.  They have some amazing, unique pieces, some of which I want to share with you today!  One must always have bomb clothes to go with cute makeup, right? I received the opportunity to wear these in exchange for my honest review, so be looking for that post in the upcoming months!  However, because it’s currently cold as heck in Missouri, I can’t sport the clothing now…waaaa!

So here’s a little backstory on them:

It all started with a little too much online shopping and a love for fashion.  Growing up in the great state of Louisiana, I was raised with Southern values which are prominent in my everyday life.

 With the ever growing expenses of raising children, I wanted to do something to help out.  Laying in bed one night, I came up with what I thought was the perfect solution.  With lots of prayers, I suggested the idea to my husband.  To my surprise he agreed to indulge my “crazy idea” of an online boutique.

 Within months the boutique became a huge success and continues to grow by leaps and bounds.  Now my friends shop at my site, instead of my closet.

 Tara Lynn’s offers quality clothing at affordable prices.  We strive to be the place that every woman thinks to check for the latest trends.  We are always designing new items for the ever changing fashion trends. 

Now to the good stuff! Let’s take a look.  I want to spotlight skirts/dresses because I’m obsessed with them and hope it makes spring and summer come even faster!  🙂

black and white striped skirt 1black and white striped skirt 2 I love this striped skirt, and it looks great paired with this denim shirt.  I find this skirt so versatile, you could dress it up with heals or wear it casually with some flats and a red tee!  It would even be cute with some ankle boots and tights for winter.

 

tulle midiHave you tried a tulle midi yet?  I have not, I tried on a tulle skirt a while back and I didn’t think it was flattering on my figure.  However, I may revisit one, and I do love the look of them!  This one comes in navy, red and black–so cute!  And reasonably priced!  I’d like to pair this with a tank and a cropped jean jacket!

 

unique skirt 2unique skirt I wanted to share this for the sheer uniqueness of this piece.  I love!  I like the way this Pops of Color skirt looks with this striped top and I would probably wear it with a simple tight hot pink V-neck and maybe some gladiator sandals?  What do you think, are you bold enough to wear this?

 

bohemian maxibohemian maxi 2  Another unique piece, this Bohemian Maxi has such a pretty color combination.  It also comes in an additional shade, but this one is my favorite.  I think the wide-cut neck makes this a sexy number, without showing too much!  I haven’t worn anything like this personally, and it would be stepping outside of my comfort zone due to the pattern and length. But it’s SO pretty and sophisticated, at least it is on the model! Ha!  And, it’s currently sold-out, so it must be pretty popular.  What do you think?

 

chevronchevron 2This Chevron Maxi is more my speed.  The pockets look great and  I love the way that it’s cinched in the waist–flattering and makes for a good ole hour-glass shape!  The mint is my favorite color, but it comes in coral (shown) as well as black, gray/mint, which is also SUPER cute as well as gray.

Do you think you’ll be trying anything from this company?  Some of the clothing is on the pricey side, but it’s good quality and they also have some items on the lower-end of the spectrum.  Do you like what you see?

Fashionably,

Meek

Fashion: Shirt Dresses! Great for all Body Types!

Have you copped a shirt dress by now?  By George, I sure hope so!!!  Shirt dresses are the business in fashion!  Eat too much recently?  Forgiving!  In the best shape of your life…show your gams! A shirt dress doesn’t discriminate!  No matter what shape you are…pear, apple, orange, mango (okay, I think I made up mango in regards to body shape) or the time of year, a shirt dress will work for you!

celebrities-and-shirt-dresses

winter shirt dress

Here is a great example of a shirt dress that’s been “winterized.”  Yeah, it’s short, but if you’re a chicken, or live in the Midwest like myself, you can always add some leggings or some super cute, sexy tights.  The material of this one is very thin, but I love clothing pieces that serve dual seasons–snatch off the boots and put on some sandals and voila!

 

A member of team thickems?  A shirt dress is for you too, boo!  I love the look of a belt with this to give it some added pizzazz!

 

shirt dress and sandals One of my favorite summer looks is a shirt dress with gladiator sandals.  The sandals really stand out!  And it’s very flattering on this skinny Minnie!

Simple tennis shoes and a hat really gives this one some flair!

 

 

shirt dress and jacket

You can even wear one with clunky boots and a jacket!  Cute!

Valentine’s Day Fashion: Ladies in Red

So Valentine’s Day is around the corner–what are your plans?  Sexy dressy date on the town? Expensive dinner, limo, and the tango by candlelight in an upscale fancy building with vaulted ceilings rented out by your honey?  Sweet!

Me?  I’m a homebody mostly.  As long as I’m spending it with my lover and sweet baby then I’m good!  But that doesn’t mean we can’t fantasize about what we WOULD wear should we happenstance upon some sweet fancy night!  And these…ladies and gents…are my Instagram ladies in red!

kylie

King Kylie!  Say what you want about this young girl and her fake pout (which I happen to love by the way), but her fashion game is strong!

 

jlo

J-Lo!   Damn, I’ll have WHATEVER she’s having.  J-Lo is 4,000 b.c. years old and can rock a sexy bondage dress like nobody’s biz!

 

amber rose

Muva, Amber Rose!   And, if you don’t like it, you better not tweet about it, because Muva doesn’t play on twitter!  Ask, Kanye and his…ahem…rump

 

taraji

Taraji P. Henson is almost showing her cookies in this getup, but wouldn’t this be cute with some jeans and heels?

 

alyssa milano

Alyssa Milano is giving me church-life in this dress!  But, I do love this classy beauty and maybe you’re not a natural born, undercover, wannabe hoochie like myself!  Jazz it up with some strappy heels!

 

ashanti.jpg

Ashanti!   Yes, mama!  Just be cute, and don’t sing!  She’s sharing those big gams with us, and I love a wintery, sexy dress!  Although, I’m sure that dress is providing NO warmth.  Who cares!  Yasssss!  Simple and cute!

 

gab union

Gabrielle Union!  I would love this dress more if it were a skanky fitted midi, but it’s got appeal for sure!

 

makeup shayla

And you know how I feel about Slayla!  Thick curvy girls unite!  Makeupshayla doesn’t disappoint in this crop and midi combo! **claps, curtseys and bows***

 

Now, back to the real world, what will you be wearing for Valentine’s Day?

Fashion: What’s on My Christmas List

 

Tis the season to wish I had more money!  LOL!  Isn’t it amazing how the holidays can make you revert to a 7 year old?  “Oooh, I want this.  Ooh, I want that.  Oooh, I wish I had this!”  And while I know that the most important thing about the holiday is family, health and all of those things, that doesn’t stop me from scouring the internet and wishing I had loads of cash to dump everywhere I wanna 😉

These are some of the items from Forever 21 and H&M that I wish Santa would slide down my chimney:

 

H&m jumpsuit

Click Here: H&M Sleeveless Jumpsuit $49.99

When I first looked at this, it struck me as ugly.  But upon further review brainwashing, I think I like this!  The pattern is unique, and it has sort of a 70’s swag.  I’d love to wear this with some fresh-faced makeup and a dark burgundy lip.

 

h&m jumpsuit 2H&m jumpsuit

Click Here: Forever 21 Belted Jumpsuit $39.99

Yes, I obviously have a thing for jumpsuits.  This one here gives me goosebumps…I love the color and I would love to pimp this out with a splash of bright color or continue with muted colors and give a super bold matte lippie Previous Post: Melt Cosmetics Lipstick with a gold chunky statement-piece necklace.

Click Here: Forever 21 Houndstooth Skirt $22.90

I love this skirt!  I am a super fan of Houndstooth and Chevron.  I would personally pair this skirt with a red shirt, and I feel like it would be cute to rock this winter with some black boots.

Click Here: Forever 21 Shirt Dress $29.90

How do you feel about shirt dresses?  I’m always scared that my cheeks will hang out the bottom, but obviously models are taller than my mere 5’2?!  If it’s too short, I’ll pair it with some dark patterned tights, and I would likely wear tights or legging this winter to keep from dying of hyperthermia.  I would also like to throw on my Knit Cuff Hiking Boots that I bought a while back from Rue 21 Previous Post: Boots

What do you ladies think about these?  And what clothes are on your Christmas Wish List?
