Hey there sugars,
Confidence is a pretty elusive thing, ey? The one thing I know for sure is that its not everyday I wake up feeling all bubbly and happy ready to take on the world.There are days when all I want to do is stay in bed and wear my blanket all day and unfortunately the way this life is set up you need to get up,dress up and show up no matter how you feel. You have to face the world guns blazing and these are some of the things that do the trick for me when I need that extra boost of confidence.

However ,when I saw this dungaree dress I was in love I don’t know if it’s because I completely ignored the upper part due to how well the bottom part fit me because what are scissors for right? Or, for the slightly cooler and more feminine vibe to it.
If I had to pick only a few wardrobe staples that every girl should have, a good chambray shirt would be at the top of the list. They are super versatile,cute and comfy especially if it’s made with soft denim. I have been trying to find a loose fit chambray shirt for a minute now to no avail.

Good Afternoon and happy almost weekend loves!
There are so many positive attributes about the pencil skirt that it is almost impossible not to have at least one hanging in your closet. I love pencil skirts I think they are classical pieces that never go out of style and can easily be styled to achieve different looks for either day or night.
