What’s In My Bag / Givenchy Antigona Mini

Hi all! I’m so excited to make this blog post about what’s in my bag. You can learn a lot about a gal by rummaging through her handbag. Whether she’s a neat freak or a hoarder of receipts – unzipping a purse is as revealing as entering someone’s bedroom. With a quick glance into mine you will uncover my love for coconut / vanilla scents , that I eat cough drops like candy ( What exactly is in Ricola that makes it so yummy?! ) , and I also have an issue with collecting bobby pins ( I misplaced those little guys everywhere ). All in all, you get the jest that a purse holds a mixture of miscellaneous knick-knacks to our sacred wallets that we wouldn’t dare leave the house without. So here’s a glimpse into my bag, what’s in yours?

P.S. I would also like to note that this was my first stop motion video. It was a tedious process but I love the quirky effect of the final product. Despite having to re-shoot some scenes and having photo quality issues, I enjoyed being creative on the project. In the future, I plan on making a what’s in my travel bag. ~b

Dinner Date Outfit

Hi guys! Long time, no post (sorry , sorry). I just got back from a mini trip with my boyfriend and brother. We traveled out west to Portland, Seattle, and Colorado for a few days. It was a lot of fun but very tiresome as well. I did finished my YouTube video that I was planning on making before I left though (check it out on my channel – What’s In My Bag) .

Anyways, here’s an outfit that I put together for a romantic dinner date with my boyfriend.  We went to a restaurant in uptown with a breathtaking view of the city skyline. We had a lovely time watching the sun set and I got semi-dressed up  for the occasion. The lace blue high neck / halter top is from the Lauren Conrad lines at Kohl’s. I think it’s perfect for a classy night out because it’s conservative and elegant. I wore a pair of white skinny jeans with my Givenchy Antigona mini cross-body bag to finish off the look. Hope y’all like this outfit inspo. for future date-nights! ~bBeInspireful - Dinner Date Outfit5

Girly Blush Pink Outfit

If you are following my insta feed and blog then it should come to no surprise now that I have a very feminine/girly sense of style. I love chiffon, satin, and lace – all in pastel shades of course! Blush pink is probably one of my favorite shades to wear year round. It’s a soft color that can transition with the ever changing season – depending on how you dress it up or down. In this outfit I just paired it with plain white jeans, a matching blush satchel, and a pair of neutral sandals. A very basic but super easy look that complements well together. A lot of times , keeping it simple is the best way to go! Anywho – that’s all for this look.

Also sorry for the lack of posts lately. I had to prep for an interview last week and haven’t made time to edit new content. I do have a video planned for YouTube though , but i’m not sure how to approach it just yet. Stay tuned and I’ll keep y’all updated and as always thanks for reading, I really appreciate it. 🙂 ~b

Easy Breezy Park Outfit

Hi guys! This is my casual out-for-a-stroll park outfit. It’s an easy effortless look that makes you stylish in a breeze. Here in the South, the temperature is starting to get a bit cooler but definitely not cold enough for a jacket. That’s why I have been opting for long sleeve tops these days. This shirt, in particular, is one of my favorites for a variety of reasons. I absolutely adore the chic peek-a-boo shoulder detailing and the floral/vine like pattern. I’m also a fan of the material as well.  I have this thing for flowy chiffon fabrics and wear it regularly throughout the year (I just layer a lot more in the winter). To finish off the whole breezy look – I paired it with light washed skinny jeans,  a perforated cross body bag, and some strappy sandals.  Anyways, hope y’all enjoyed this outfit inspiration for the day. I’ll be sure to add some fall fashion soon when the leaves start changing here! ~bBeInspireful - Cute Park Outfit 4BeInspireful - Cute Park Outfit 6.jpg

End of Summer Maxi Dress

Dress – American Eagle / Sandals – Steve Madden

Where does the time go? I can’t believe summer is coming to an end! I am dreading it…colder weather and I just don’t get along (although we have tried in the past). I’m just a flip-flop-all-year-long type of gal. But I have to admit , fall fashion and all the festivities is something I am looking forward to. For now though, I’m just going to enjoy the last rays of sunshine in this flowy maxi dress. It is more muted with earthy tones and the rustic/burnt floral pattern gives off a vintage boho vibe. These elements combined make it a transitional piece from summer to fall. I purchased the “dress” from American Eagle but it’s actually a maxi skirt that happens to fit me as an ankle length dress (#shortgirlprobs). I love the elegance of long dresses but have a hard time finding ones that do not swallow my petite frame. That’s why this skirt works as a dress, it comes in more size options and you can always belt it like I did to make it smaller. Hope this tip helps one of you shorties out there! Talk to you soon! ~b

Flower Crowns + Hippie Fashion

Tank Top – Charlotte Russe / Shorts – Garage / Sandals – DSW

Summer is the season of musical festivals! It’s the perfect place to dress like a hippie and wear flower crowns. Here’s a simple outfit idea for these fun social gatherings. I went for the girl next door kind-of-look. Instead of wearing a white tee and jeans – I went with a sheer white tank top and distressed demin shorts. I dressed the simple look up with a few accessories. Overall, I think this a great easy look to replicate for hot summer concerts. It’s something you probably own in your own closet – making it super inexpensive.  I also just crafted the flower crown myself (watched a youtube tutorial) . Anyhow thanks for reading this post! Till next time. ~bBeInspireful - Hippie10BeInspireful - Hippie11.jpg

 

Crop Top + High Waisted Shorts

Correct me if I’m wrong…but the unofficial summer time uniform consists of crop tops & high waisted shorts. It’s really no surprise that demin shorts are the staples of summer fashion. The right pair can accentuate your legs and also make your butt look good as well (which is always a plus). The one I am wearing are actually from Abercrombie’s kid section (petite people problems). They are great because they hide my tummy. With more coverage around the waist, pairing it with a crop top seems like the natural fit. My colorful crop top has a floral print detail. Together this combo is perfect for the effortlessly cool gal. It’s a laid-back kind of outfit that beats the summer heat in style! ~bBeInspireful - Highwaisted Shorts10BeInspireful - Highwaisted Shorts12
