Finding and Embracing My Personal Style!!

Hey Everyone!!

It's been a while since I've posted. I'm having a few issues with my MacBook, sorry for the delay!
Today's post will be all about finding and embracing my personal style. As we all know, having on the perfect outfit will make you feel amazing! I think we should feel like that everyday!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: IF YOU LIKE IT WEAR IT! 


Personal style was a touchy subject for me, because for so long I couldn't figure it out & I felt like I didn't have a personal style! It's like, I know what I like but conveying the message didn't always come across clear. (in my own opinion)  I don't necessarily feel as though my style should fit into one box but I want my #OOTD to make sense, and of course look AMAZING! I think one issue was comparison. I had to learn that the looks that I put together will not look the same as they did when it was just an inspirational outfit... Learning that making the look "my own" is what made it work! I just had to say STOP COMPARING KELZ, this is YOUR LOOK!!

I've always had items that I gravitated toward and I tend to pick up pieces that vibe. When I sat down and thought about it, I decided to really learn about myself and figure our my signature style.

  MY STYLE: MODERN DAY BOHO CHIC


For starters, I'm someone who loves to be comfortable!!! I dress comfortably 85% of the time. the other 15% I'm not completely uncomfortable... but I deal! Learning to dress for my body type is essential for comfort and aesthetics. Highlighting my best features is also extremely important!
When thinking of enhancing my personal style I though of the colors that work well with my skin tone... this for me is key! This brought me to to my second realization: I ALWAYS wear black. I have it on right now! LOL there's nothing wrong with that, but a few weeks ago I went to a fashion show and decided to step away from my normal black attire... I wore different shades of  blush and nude with a splash of black...(pictures below) I got tons of compliments on the outfit. When my friend jasmine saw me she went WOW Kelz, you look completely different without black on!! Thinking back on it, I loved the color, and it encouraged me to do this more often. So this spring and summer, I will be colorful!

  

#FunFact I have a ton of clothes, yet I still have a hard time pulling an outfit together!!


My Staple Pieces:

  • I love a great kimono or super long cardigan (preferably with pockets) to complete my look. 
  • I ALWAYS wear leggings!! I just cant stay away from them. 
  • Hoops, I love Hoops!! 
  • Just accessories in general 
  • A great bag


I created this look on Polyvore as an example of my ideal everyday style.

This App Is Great!!
Hey guys!! 

Today I want to talk about a great way to save cash without even noticing it! We all want to save money and here's a great way to do it! I KNOW I'm the absolute worst when it comes to saving money, and I'm always looking for a great way for me to get my funds in order! After having a conversation with my best friend a few months ago, we came across the topic of apps that help you save & how we weren't too fond of trusting that kind of thing with our personal info. She mentioned that she uses this app called Digit. Let me tell you a little about it... 




What is Digit? 

Digit is an app that records your income and spending patterns, and automatically dips into your checking account and puts a few bucks aside in your Digit savings account! Typically $2-$17 every 2-3 days.  

The app is super user friendly and you can withdraw at any time. Whenever you withdraw funds, they will be available in your checking the following day. What's really cool is that you can increase or decrease the amount thats taken from your checking and put into your savings. You're also in control of the frequency that the app takes money.


#FunFact I've been a member since Jan 2017 and I've saved $91.94





Why Download Digit?

Soooo no matter what you're saving for, you can do it without really noticing it. You can also earn money by inviting your friends join. You can also create goals to save for... for instance, I'm currently saving to improve my blog! 


How Much is The App?

Digit is completely free, and can be downloaded to iPhones and androids! The app can be found in the app store or the google play store. 


  • Additional Perks: After 3 months of using the app, you get a savings bonus! The rate is currently .20% annually.
  • I'd rate the digit app 10 out of 10! I haven't experienced any issues with it and I'm saving money. 
I've added a link inviting everyone to join! It's completely free and you save instantly! Follow the link for more info and to start! 

Join The Party & Start Saving Now! 


I hope you guys enjoyed the read! Please comment and follow my blog for new posts. I post new content weekly! 

Disclaimer: I have not been asked to review this app. My review is based on an app that a friend suggested because I mentioned that I needed to start a new budget. My experience is completely honest and I have not been compensated.

So, I wore the booties! I was getting dropped off to school. It was horrible out. A real Michigan winter! Im talking like snow, ice, sleet , slush SMH... We pulled up directly in front of the school where about 75 kids are standing around waiting to go in. As soon as I get both of my feet out of the car and on the ground, I was under the car! It all happened so fast! I hopped back in the car soaking wet from the slushy snow, and begged her to drive me around the corner and pull back up...as if the kids would forget I just bust my butt in front of them just moments earlier. My mom yelled at me about me making her late and kicked me out of the car. I took the longest walk up to the front doors, and listened to all kinds of laughing on the way there. This was by far my most embarrassing moment in high school! All because...I didn't listen to my mom... smh
