I didn't realize until the other day how many women are stil fearful of wearing stripes because they claim they make them look fat. I say when worn correctly it lengthens instead of widens.
I have multiple stripe dresses and tops but we're going to focus on this one for now. The off the shoulder tighter fit stripe top. I chose to wear it with high waisted shorts. Why?
When wearing stripes and feeling self-conscious go with a higher waisted pant. This helps his the area where you feel most insecure about the stripes on the shirt. Also, this shirt is wide neck or off the shoulder so showing some skin elsewhere draws the eyes upward.
Lastly, an accessory like a bandana as a scarf or even a wrap scarf to also give another visual for the eyes to wander!

As promised, I remixed the floral shorts that I only wear in the summertime to now fall attire!
I added sheer black nylons or you can do tights. You can even do a different color or patterned tights, but I would suggest a solid color top so it doesn't get too busy.
I wanted to throw in some different elements like the stripe turtleneck with the print shorts, giving it a funky edge than going with a solid turtleneck.

I know most of you are getting ready for colder weather and I'm still over here on a tropical island in 80 degrees. Darn. Jk
I will show you how to take floral or decorative shorts from daily beach wear to fall wear.
For now I'm wearing them with a loose cotton v-neck, fedora beach hat, and wedges, with a fun tassel necklace. Giving the shorts an effortless day look or if I were going to the beach it could be a cover up and just wear sandals.

Stay tuned for next post, I will remix these shorts into a fall look!

Hey you! I found a product you'll love! Exfoliate your skin to keep it glowing and smooth with Le'edge. Use it in the shower, bath, or like I did, just washed my face then exfoliated! It's super easy!
Le'edge is an all natural, stainless steel exfoliator for your skin. There's no chemicals or expensive creams, lotions etc. Just the tool and you can use any moisturizer you want after using it.
This was my first time using it and I started with my (what I think) worst part of my skin that holds dirt and dead skin is my nose. You need to apply a controlled pressure to scrape the blackheads/dead skin. You'll start to see a little bit on the exfoliator, but the main thing is to move in a motion most comfortable to you.
It kind of feels like you're shaving and looks like it but you can move all around. After I did my face and added a moisturizer, I felt refreshed, clean, and rejuvenated ! My skin was so smooth! I can't wait to try in the shower with my legs and arms!
I'm going to try it again with mineral salts to remove excess dead skin from my feet and see how it works! Right now I am loving it and can't believe how smooth my skin on my face feels!
* I received thisproduct free of charge.

My last post I wore this top tucked into boot cut jeans, brown belt, and mule. Today I mixed it up by leaving it untucked, added a black and gold belt, black shorts, and my favorite floral heels.
I love playing on colors like the reddish flowers in the heels really pop with the same color top.
Now you have 2 different looks to play with for a day put or a night on the town!

It certainly doesn't feel like fall here in Okinawa, but I'm told it will get colder. However, I needed a change up from black and white and get into the fall colors. At least I can dress like the leaves are changing even if there's 🌴 all around and I live in a jungle.
Simple red or burnt orange (depends on light) blouse tucked into jeans added a belt and clogs. If you have a V-neck and want the look of not wearing a bra but your shirt is see through, try Bralettes. My normal bras have to much umph if you know what I mean? and in low cut tops it can just be a bit much. Bralettes or nylon strapless is perfect for the easy breezy look 😉

If you remember my last outfit post I was wearing these Palazzo pants. I remixed them with a pop of color crop top and a jean jacket.
I like to wear crop tops with high waisted pants because it accentuates the wide leg of the pants.
Dont be afraid to add a little color to simply change up an outfit!

My product pick of the week
If you follow me on Snapchat or insta stories you know the hubs and I are trying out the ketogenic diet. If you're not familiar it's basically high fat, medium protein, and low carbs. Essentially fat is burning fat. Well if you're in the mood to give it a try, I found an awesome ebook to help with my sweet cravings and stay on track!!! Ketogenic Diet: Fat Bombs! It sounds the complete opposite of every diet I've ever tried which is why I love it! This book provides so many delicious and easy recipes for when you need that sugary carb fix without straying from keto.
I couldn't wait to get started on a dessert so I made a quick and easy one, took me 10 min. and oh so good!!!
I'm not going to give you the recipe, you'll have to purchase the ebook for that! Here's the link!
I received this ebook free of charge.
It was too good not to lick!
We all know who the actual chef is in this house! He made dinner, I made dessert ?
My Love's weekly picks:
In Okinawa it's still very hot and palazzo pants are perfect to wear when I'm sick of shorts. However, these seem to only give me the option of a black or white top to wear with them.
The next post I will show you how I remix these pants with some color and not look like a clown doing it.

Remember the last post of the mesh cut off tank I wore under the vest? If you don't, just scroll down!
As you can see the back is all mesh. So the vest in the last post disguised some of the mesh this way it doesn't look just like a workout top when you don't want to wear it as one.
