Cranberry Corduroy Look

Happy Friday Everyone!

Sorry I’ve missed you the last two Wednesdays! Last Wednesday we were on our cruise and this Wednesday was Halloween, so I’m catching you up with another fall look that I’ve been loving! I’m really enjoying this cranberry corduroy skirt from Forever 21+ the fit is perfect as well as the length! I’m especially excited to pair this with tights for the cooler months. The top y’all have seen before, this Loft top is a great staple for your wardrobe! It can be dressed up or down and the color and fabric are perfection! Paired with a LC Lauren Conrad bag from last season and Halogen studded flats from Nordstrom Rack! These accessories are some of my favorites for Fall and they are the perfect finishing touch on a look!

I’m currently working on gathering some fun holiday pieces to share with you guys! Please let me know if you are interested in gift guides or certain looks for the holidays! Whether it’s glitz and glam or my top picks for gifts just let me know what you would like to see!

This weekend I’m working on taking down the Halloween decorations and maybe pulling out some holiday decor! :) my favorite time of year! I’m so excited!

Classic Fall Style with Loft

Happy Wednesday lovelies!

I have another fall look for y’all! This one reminds me of horse back riding with the high neck and tie detail on the top and the blazer with chic elbow pads this look has all the details! This entire look is from Loft minus the shoes! These leggings are amazing, super comfy but also look more like pants than leggings, a big plus for the office! Again the top has fabulous details and can be worn with jeans for a more casual look. The blazer is a staple piece to have in your closet and this one is perfect especially for this Florida weather! It’s more of a sweater material but has the structure of a heavier jacket along with great details again would be great with jeans or even a skirt.

These pieces are great investment pieces and great mix and match items which are worth every penny. For me personally I tend to sway more towards classic timeless pieces and only purchase a few trendy pieces because the classic pieces will always be in style and a better idea to invest in.

Fall Inspiration with Forever 21+

Happy Wednesday babes!

As promised I shot some fall looks for y’all even though it is still summer here in FL. I picked out some pieces that are super easy to wear and all interchangeable, plus very affordable for the most part!

The first fall look I have for you is this super comfy and easy to wear suede dress from Forever 21 Plus, this is cute with this basic white t-shirt underneath from Old Navy and and booties and bag from Kohl’s. This look is very fall and still possible here in the sunshine state without getting to hot! However, if you live somewhere where it’s already getting cooler out this look would be super cute paired with tights and close-toed booties! This whole look is under $75 is perfect to transition into the fall season!

Love Loft - Try On Session

Hey everyone!

Hope you’re having a great week thus far! Last week I shared a little bit about my experience with Loft at the Altamonte Mall but I wanted to go a little more in depth and share some looks from my try on session!

Again I had the pleasure of working with some amazing girls at Loft and we all tag teamed and picked out some looks for me to try. First off best part about this is when others pick your clothes, they choose something you might not ever try and might love if you did try them on! These girls chose several pieces I would never try and I loved every look I tried on at my try on session! I love Loft as a whole, the quality of the clothes, and especially how their clothing is for the everyday woman! I can take all my Loft pieces from day to night, dress up, dress down, that is what I love to have in my closet!

Another thing I really love about Loft is they just started carrying plus sizes so everyone can find the size best for them and not sacrifice style, so important! Another plus Loft almost always has a sale, I always score major deals at Loft and these are pieces I constantly wear!

Definitley check out Loft for some fun new fall pieces that have a ton of great things right now! A few looks from my try on session are below for y’all to check out along with the girls that put together those looks for me! Make sure to check them out!



Fall Collab with KRZA by Krystle Dawn

If you have been with me since the beginning of my blog you have definitely seen KRZA around! I'm so excited to be collaborating with Krystle from KRZA by Krystle Dawn! She gave me one of my first brand rep opportunities and it meant the world to me when I was first starting out that someone would take me on as a brand rep! After being a brand rep for several seasons I'm so excited that we are finally collaborating on Lifestyle with Laramie! Below you will find a Q & A with Krystle on being a business owner and girl boss extraordinaire! She's such a sweet person and I hope you all love learning more about her, as well as check out some of her current pieces! Keep scrolling there might be a surprise for you towards the end!


What made you want to make headbands?

When I was in my last semester of design school I would take scraps of fabric and my instructor said I looked great in what I was creating and that I should sell headbands. I started my business about a month later and never looked back.

How do you balance your business and personal life?

I don't think I've found the answer to this question yet. I think my idea of balance wouldn't really work for anyone else. I feel the most balanced when I'm creating or at my sewing machine. So I guess my personal life is my business. Of course I love a good comedy show every now and then. And I take Sunday's off for football. That's my balance lol!

How do you go about choosing the colors and prints for your pieces?

I create about 90% of my prints. I found an artist who speaks to my brand. When I have a print idea I text her and we work on the prints until it's what I envisioned and then I have it printed for my shop. As far as colors I took color theory and textiles in college so I get to put all of that knowledge to use every season when choosing solids.

What advice would you give fellow girl bosses and creatives?

Work hard. Don't compare yourself to anyone else. Always just focus on your shop and you'll come out on top. I'm not suggesting to be mean or selfish, but sometimes there's a lot of drama in the small shop community and some people can let it bring them down and nothing good can come of that.

What is your favorite style and print personally?

I wear the faux turban the most. I have a big head so it really narrows my head. My favorite print ever is my Quartz print. I'm really into crystals, the moon, and space so I went to my artist and asked if she could paint me some crystals and she did such an amazing job. I don't think I'll ever not carry the Quartz print. My logo is also a crystal which is a play on my name. So it fits my shop perfectly.

What is the most rewarding part of your business?

Meeting awesome customers. Being a small shop owner is stressful. You're usually doing everything alone. So sometimes it can feel like you're not doing enough or you are failing, but then you get a message from a customer saying your item made their day or they feel confident wearing it and it really is the best feeling in the world.

What is the meaning behind your brand name?

KRZA doesn't stand for anything. It's not an acronym. It's actually my nickname from when I was younger. I love hip hop and Wu-Tang so my cousin nick named me KRZA since there were cousins in the group named RZA and GZA. My shop name is so close to my heart and it helps me stand behind every item I create. It's a piece of me.

Summer Round Up

I finally got together my favorite summer looks for you all! We are currently preparing/going through hurricane Irma as this post probably won't go up until mid week. Hurricane season is normal for me as I've lived in Florida my whole life, but this girl (Irma) is no joke, she's a massive storm! Never-mind that though let's get back to talking about this summer round up! This summer has been so amazing, between the amazing trips we've taken and places we've gone I couldn't have asked for a better summer! We ventured to St. Pete, Daytona Beach, and Miami just to name a few with our favorite people! I couldn't be more grateful for the wonderful friends we have in Chris and Mer, they have been true blessings to Travis and myself! So this summer has a special place in my heart and my closet as I love so my looks I sported this season! As for things coming up, there are some fun collaborations on the horizon that I'm super excited about! I'm excited for fall (or what little fall we have here) and a little sad to leave summer behind. With that, below are my favorite looks from this summer! Let me know what your favorite was in the comments below!

Winter is Coming!

The slightest bit of climate change that remains for days straight is so exciting here in FL. It has been so so nice here in the early mornings and evening as the air gets cooler and there is a need for a sweater, it puts an instant smile on my face. Below is one of my favorite looks for fall and winter. A sweater with jeans paired with a pair of fun boots and sunnies, topped off with a deep colored lip. This is a great look for day paired with shorter boots or flats and neutral gloss and then take it to evening with a heel or tall boot and deep colored lips!
