Picnic Blankets and Pina Coladas

Fashion & Beauty

Fall is in the air and new styles are trending. Shopping for chic but modest outfits that don’t break that bank is like searching for a needle in a haystack. It’s vexing to scour heaps of clothes only to find one embroidered long sleeve top that ends up costing $50.

So I have resorted to online shopping and I don’t mean on the sites of mainstream retail stores. I’ve recently been introduced to Boohoo and Shein which, to be honest, I was a little skeptical about. Online stores don’t give me the option of returning clothes at the physical store and quickly picking out an alternative.

I recently received my first Shein package, and so far, every single item has been a perfect fit. I haven’t washed any of them yet so I’ll save the reviews for another post.

This past Friday, I went to my sister’s birthday dinner where I ordered a virgin pina colada. I can honestly say it was a much needed refreshment after a long day at the county fair. I donned one of my Shein favorites, a cute bell-sleeved, gingham top adorned with floral embroidery paired with black skinny jeggings and silver oxfords. Yes, it’s an entire look with every trend listed above. I basically look like a picnic blanket placed on a bed of roses. If that’s the look you’re going for, here’s where you can get it.
