Sleep Wear + Stripes

Calling all divas! Who would have thought a blue sleep wear top 😱 paired with stripes could look so FIRE!? 🔥😂 These two pieces caught my eye and I thought hey why not pair them up on a date!?

Black and white stripes are definitely my favorite color combo slash print ever. It’s one of those trends that will never go out of style (trust me!) so start stocking up on striped shoes, pants, shirts, dresses and more!

A little pop of color never hurt anyone either. This ‘top’ can totally be worn during the night but also (as you can see!) wear it during the day as a top! You get the point. 😉 LOVE YALL!

Styling Tips: Pleated Maxi

When I think long pleated skirt I think dressy. However, there’s just something so relaxing about pairing a loose-fitted top with a long pleated skirt. The two are total opposites but when styled together – they make the perfect match. Today I’m sharing with you some how to style tips if you’re into this relaxed trend.

YAS Tips

Pleated Maxi Skirt: I prefer a long pleated skirt that is of course – floor length 💁🏾. The pleats are fun, flirty & easy to style up or down and adds more YASSS to your outfit.

Pullover: When shopping for a pullover the possibilities are endless. You can go with textured, fluid or oversized pullover thats either t chunky or thin-material. When it comes to the neckline it’s totally up to your preference. High-low styles (longer in the back, shorter in the front) work best (in my opinion) because they add a little structure to the slouchy effect and make the semi-tucking look more flattering and less bulky.

Shoes: My favorite styles for a look like this are with platform heels pumps or heeled sandal. Tall boots with heels can be great too. This will keep your skirt from dragging. If comfort is key for you, try pairing with cute pointy-toe flats/loafers or a pair of your fav sneakers. Oh, be sure your skirt is hemmed!

Accessories: I’m all for the minimalist look so I say keep the accessories to a minimum. Simply add a cute statement bag, sunglasses and/or piece of dainty jewelry.

Stripes + Bells

It’s Sunday and I’m already wishing to go back to the start of the weekend! Kendell and I have been very busy-he had ALLL his wisdom teeth extracted, I’ve had photo shoots, events and everything else in between. I can’t believe how quickly time has flown by, but I guess so when the weekend is busy! BUT IT’S A GOOD THING 💁🏾. I was going to upload a video on my channel but I haven’t edit…sawweee!

Instead I’m going to share this playful look I wore a few of weeks ago for a casual afternoon with my girls. It’s safe to say, I’m loving the stripes at every moment of every season. I used to think that stripes were boring, but honey was I wrong. Women of all sizes and shapes are rockin’ it and LOOKING GOOD – it’s all about the fit/style. Whether it’s horizontal or vertical, big or small, chevron – you name it, #IssaWin! Y’all have a good one! Love y’all!

PolkaDot + Green

Today I’m sharing my-ready-for-spring outfit I wore a few days ago. I’ve been on the hunt for some polka dot tops and found one that I instantly fell in love with and HAD TO HAVE. I love that it’s something I can wear just about errrrwhere and super comfy. I can see myself styling this top over and over again for the day or night. Since I wasn’t crazy to show off my mummy-tummy – it’s a cropped top -😬, I paired it with a high waisted pant and a cute little green clutch to compliment the look. If you follow and watched my  Instagram LIVE, then you know I told ya to get a pair of VIBRANT high waisted pants to add to your closet! It’s the perfect statement to make an outfit fierce and chic. Hope y’all have a stylish week! 💁🏾
