Never Let Them Ride your Wave





Hey y'all I know I've been MIA lately but I'm finally back to blogging! As y'all saw in my last post I was studying abroad this summer from May to June. Shortly after I came back I had started summer school, which I was attending everyday, and on top of that I was working nearly 40 hours a week. My schedule has finally cleared up a bit and now I am back to blogging and I'm gonna try and start consistently vlogging too! So once I got back into the states one of the first few things I did was order some new summer must haves. Some of these summer must haves include these new 2 pieces that I ordered from swimclassy.com The first swimsuit is the "Beauty" one piece swimsuit in red. This is a cheeky one piece with a side boob cut out and cheeky cut bottoms. I love this one piece as it is cute, comfortable, and well made. I ordered this swimsuit in a medium. My second swimsuit that I ordered is the "A-class" swimsuit in white. I already have this one in black and I liked it so much that I had to order it in another color. White and black are actually the only colors that this swimsuit comes in. I think I actually like the white swimsuit better as it has adjustable straps that allow me to change how it fits. I ordered this swimsuit in a medium. This swimsuit also shows off your side boob, has a low back, and cheeky cut bottoms. For those of you who want to shop with Swim Classy don't forget to use my discount code "JANAI" when you checkout!

Swim Classy







    Recently the swim suit and loungewear brand, Swim Classy, reached out to me about promoting for them. Now I am officially an ambassador their brand. Swim Classy is a brand that promotes body positivity by using unedited photos of the promoters wearing their products. Swim Classy has a lot of cute stuff for women of any body type. This "A Class" swimsuit is the first thing I have gotten from Swim Classy. This swimsuit comes in both black and white. I love the floral packaging that my swimsuit came in and how it was neatly packaged inside with pink tissue paper and faux flower petals. I ordered the swimsuit in a size medium and it fits perfectly. The swimsuit is cheeky, is cut out on the sides to show off your side boob, and has your whole back out.  If you want to shop with Swim Classy you can use my code "JANAI" for a 25% discount. While supplies last Swim Classy is also doing a BOGO special. Check out all of their great products they have on their website here

Chocolate Thing


    This was my outfit for the second night of A-day weekend. I went to a probate and then the after party. My dress is from Fashion Nova, my necklace is from Windsor, and my heels are from Ego. My lipstick is the color Chocoholic by Maybelline.



Blossoming



    This is what I wore on A-day to tailgate in. I ordered this two piece online from Knowstyle. This is the first time that I've actually ordered from them and I will definitely order from them again. This brand is very similar to Fashion Nova and even carries some of the same outfits. So if you're a fan of Fashion Nova then you'll love this brand as well. I paired this floral set with some tan platform sandals that I bought from my store. I paired it with a tan choker that I bought from Target, my Kate Spade studs, and my mirrored cat eye sunglasses that I also got from my store. Honestly I was a bit over dressed for tailgating but they say its always better to be over dressed than under. I was worried about being too hot in this outfit but fortunately the fabric is thin and the sleeves have slits and it was windy so I was pretty comfortable. 

    

Shimmering Star



    This was outfit for the first night of A-day weekend. I wore this two piece that I got from Fashion Nova which I paired with my gold Janai necklace, gold dangly earrings that I bought fom H&M a while back, and my clear heels from Ego. 



Issa Look


    I wore this outfit last week to class and then I wore it to work afterwards. My gold chain was my mom's, I got my glasses from my job, my flannel is thrifted, my dress is from Missguided and my shoes are converse.

Living in Color


This is what I wore to Church on Easter. My dress is from Pacsun, which I wore because I wanted to wear some color. My purse and bracelet are from Forever 21, which I wore to match my shoes and cross necklace. My kimono and platforms I actually just recently bought from my job. I wore my platforms so my feet would be comfortable and white is also a pretty popular color to wear on Easter and I wanted to make sure I was dressed conservatively for church.

Neutrals



I went to a probate on Saturday and this is what I wore. Usually when people go to a probate they'll wear going out clothes but this one was held in a church so I dressed more conservatively. I paired this snake skin jacket that belonged to mom with my nude clutch and Michael Kors heels that my roommate gave to me. My white dress shirt is from JCPenney by their brand By & By and my jeans are from the Macy's brand Celebrity Pink. To top the whole look off I wore my Kim K choker from Fashion Nova. 

Spring Fever





On Friday before we opened at work my coworker and I made a social media post for the store. I picked out this outfit from the store, which the inspiration behind it was Spring and Easter.  I chose a pastel pink dress from LuLu's and paired it with a rose colored necklace and a matching leather clutch. I also added whit cat eye sunglasses which gave the look a more 1950's vintage vibe. I then matched the sunglasses with this pair of chunky white heels from Charlotte Russe.


3 stripes Part II



I wore this outfit to work a few weeks ago. I just wanted to be cute and comfortable that day and I also wanted to wear my new jacket. I paired my jacket with a plain black tank, light blue skinny jeans from Celebrity Pink, a Macy's brand, and my Adidas Sambas.

Just Do It


I wore this outfit to class and then to work a few weeks ago. I actually got this shirt from my job. I really liked this pattern on this shirt and it was big enough to wear as a dress which is why I got it. I paired this shirt with my black jelly choker and my white Air Force 1's.

3 Stripes



I wore this outfit last week to class. Unfortunately it was really windy that day so I had to tie my jacket around my waist to keep my dress from flying up. My t-shirt dress is from Missguided and my jacket is Adidas that I bought from job and my sneakers are Adidas Sambas. 






Sunnies


I've really been in need of some new sunglasses and my job just got these in a few weeks ago and I had to get them. Mirrored, cat eye, and clear glasses, and aviators are all styles that are very popular right now. You'll be sure to these in some of my outfit posts in the near future. 

Birthday Slay





On the night of my 20th Birthday I hosted a get together in my apartment. My friends got me those big number balloons that every girl takes pictures with for her birthday which I was excited about since they are the perfect photo prop. I also decorated part of the wall in my apartment as a photo back drop. My outfit for the night consisted of the Kim Choker from Fashion Nova,  the Don't Go There Dress also from Fashion Nova, and the Ariana Heels from Ego. The night was a lot of fun and I can't wait to see what I'm gonna do for my 21st.

Pinstripe Romper and Celebrity Night Booties


On the 25th I went to a probate and wore this romper from Forever 21 and paired it with my booties from Windsor and a black velvet choker that I bought from Plato's Closet. As you can see I love an all black outfit. I went with closed toed shoes for the night since it was raining. I am still in the process of breaking in these shoes and I hope I break them in soon!

Ariana Strappy Heel


I finally got myself a pair of clear heels from Ego! This style of shoe is called the Ariana heel. After trying these on I can tell that these shoes are very comfortable. The clear strap is fitted, but also stretchy to allow comfort. Ego is a great store to shop from as they have all the trending styles and also often have sales and even giveaways on their social media accounts. The only thing about Ego is if you're a customer in the U.S. you should make your order about two weeks before you would need the shoe since this is a UK based company so shipping will take a while. Overall I'm very happy with my shopping experience with Ego and will definitely purchase from them again. I'm gonna wear these shoes during my birthday weekend with my birthday dress so stay tuned for that outfit!

Hump Day






On Wednesday I had work and I decided that I need to start looking nicer for my shifts so I got a little dressed up and did my makeup. My sweater is one that my grandad gave to me, my shirt is from By & By a JCPenney brand, my shorts are from the Target brand Mossimo, and my sandals are from Forever 21.  For my makeup I used the Juvia's Place nubian palette on my eyes and a Colourpop highlighter in the color "Wisp".

Seeing Stripes








The other day one of the school organizations that I'm in had a bonding event at the basketball game so I dressed up in order to show my school support. I wore an oversized Nike windbreaker that used to be my uncle's, a turtle neck striped crop top, a black body con skirt, and black booties from Charlotte Russe. For my makeup I went for a natural look using my Morphe "Fall into Frost" palette on my eyes, Colourpop highlighter in the color "Wisp", and blush from the E.l.f. blush palette in dark.

Work Flow



On Saturday I covered the end of a coworkers shift for about 3 hours. Since it was such a short shift, I decided to get cute for work. When I do get cute for work, I also like to be comfortable so I went with a t-shirt dress from Missguided. While working I frequently get either cold or hot so I tied a thrifted flannel around my waist in case I needed an extra layer. I wanted my feet to be comfortable too, so I wore my Dr. Marten's especially since they made the outfit more grunge when paired with my flannel. I decided to do a full face of makeup as well. My eyeshadow look was created by the Morphe "Fall Into Frost" palette. My highlighter is the color "Wisp" by Colourpop. For my lips I just put on lip gloss by Rimmel London. Since I was just going to work I tried to keep the look as neutral as possible.
