The Floral Maxi Dress You Can’t Have Without

Taking a short break from posting my wedding series. 

In the market for a wonderful maxi dress to go to a special event? I highly recommend this floral maxi dress from Uptown American. I recently just discovered them and they have some really cute dresses! But this particular floral maxi is a winner in my book. You can wear it to a wedding or any special occasion this summer.  It’s so flowy, it makes you wanna twirl! As you can see in one of the photos, I actually twirled! 

And if you’re thinking that it’s summer and it’s gonna too hot to wear a long sleeves maxi, then think again. This maxi dress has sheer sleeves and sheer material (with lining) so it’s not going to be too hot, even if you wear it to a beach or a destination wedding. It’s going to be perfect!

Although you certainly can dress this down by simply wearing a pair of sandals, this isn’t your everyday maxi. I see it as more of a long dress to wear to a special occasion, like I previously mentioned above. It’s gorgeous! In fact, while shooting it, I got a ton of compliments from passers by. … View Post

Festival Look by Altar’d State

It’s festival season and Coachella is just around the corner! If you’ve ever been to a festival, you know that it’s fun looking at other people’s outfits. They can go from anywhere casual to totally outrageous! I’ve only been to one music festival all my life and that was a few years ago.

I decided to be true to my style and wear something comfortable. If you’ve never been to one, there’s definitely lots of walking, standing, and dancing so something comfortable is a MUST. 

As always, I like to go in between. I like comfy and stylish. I’m just not the type to be boldly outrageous anywhere but I can go with trendy. Speaking of trendy, the off-the-shoulder trend is the perfect style to wear at a festival. It’s getting warmer and warmer and showing off your shoulders will help you cool down while in style!… View Post

The Ultimate Seersucker Dress

This girl is too attracted to shades of blues lately. If you can only see the clothing items that are coming to our doorstep lately, you will see that I am, indeed, a little too obsessed, with any shades of blue. This seersucker dress is no exception. Tea length dresses aren’t usually my style but absolutely love this one. It’s so modest but not old-fashioned. 

Has anyone heard of eShakti? They are an online store that specializes in modest clothing. Although they do have some that are above the knee as well. You can pretty much customize the size, length, sleeve, and neck options as you want. What I love about their dresses is that they have pockets! You girls know how pockets can be so valuable! Not all dresses out there have pockets and it’s thrilling that you can have that option with eShakti’s dresses.

Girls’ Night Out: Flower Power

Nothing says more sexy and feminine for a date night or a girls’ night out this spring than a cute floral romper like this one from Altar’d State. 

Are you guys familiar with Altar’d State? If not, I highly recommend you checking them out. I love their core values and I absolutely love that they don’t hide their faith in the way they do business. In a society where perversion is being celebrated and extorted in some industry, it’s refreshing to see that there’s a business such as Altar’d State that stands up for what they believe in. 

Also, I must note that as of the time of this writing, we are making funeral arrangements for my father-in-law who just passed away, and I wanted to get this post out to you guys, but Altar’d State sent me a message saying it’s okay to put my family first. I know that there aren’t too many brands out there that are like that these days and that just made me want to support the brand even more and I’m so glad to be an ambassador for them.… View Post

Back With This Big Trend + Another HUGE Giveaway

Happy Spring guys! If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that Spring and Summer are actually my favorite season. Fall, Winter and I just don’t work very well with each other. In the past, I still normally do a lot of outfit posts, no matter how cold it got. However, this past winter, I had a wonderful excuse to take a little bit of a break from blogging due to planning my wedding so I really wasn’t able to do a lot of outfit posts.

And speaking of which, I will definitely be sharing a few pictures from our wedding and sharing with you some of the details.

For the meantime, spring is here and so are the trends that came with it the last time. If you remember, the off-the-shoulder trend was so huge last year. Everyone and their mothers on this planet and maybe Mars, wore this trend and it was great! This season, it’s back and I shared a few more choices below for you to check-out. 

There are so many out there, it’s so hard to choose! But this pink one on this post is definitely a favorite. The material is a bit wrinkly but if you iron it with starch, it should be good to go. … View Post

A Little Reflection on 2016 and Some New Year’s Eve Party Outfit Ideas

And just like that my friends…2016 is almost over and in a few days, we’re about to welcome a new year! 2016 has truly been a wonderful year for me. So many challenges and oppositions yet so many blessings and wonderful opportunities have come my way as well. 

A wise woman once told me…”When you see conflict, don’t see it as a breaking point. See it as a growth point.” This statement has truly opened my heart and mind. Because I’ve faced too many hardships in life, I thought I was already strong enough. But in 2016, there have been times when I felt like I was about to break down and give up on some people and in life in general. But just a couple of weeks ago, this statement came to me and it has lifted my spirit and has enabled me to see every obstacle that come my way as an opportunity to grow as a person and to become even stronger.

I may not be completely prepared for what 2017 has to offer and what good and bad things a married life can offer but I now know to have the right mindset for it. I’m entirely depending on God and His grace to carry me through this new season. One thing I know though…the best is yet to come in 2017.… View Post

Cape Town H-Town

Belated Merry Christmas! Hope you, lovelies, had a wonderful, wonderful Christmas weekend with your loved ones. The holiday just went by so fast. 

This Christmas was a bittersweet one for me – it’s my last Christmas as Miss Gabriel and in 3.5 weeks, I will be Mrs. Lynne Gabriel-Caine. I may have a little bit of a separation anxiety with my last name (hahaha!) but I’m excited to be a wife and start a new Christmas tradition with my husband and our future family.

Anyway, on to the outfit…the holiday weekend in Houston felt like summer! But it’s not surprising. We have an erratic weather in Houston and it’s always evident during “winter” time. It may be snowing like crazy across the United States and it’s ridiculously warm in Houston.… View Post
