Holiday Shopping Made Easy With Westfield Montgomery Mall

This holiday season I’m spending my time shopping at Westfield Montgomery Mall! I have partnered up with them to show you some of my favorite stores and best holiday items to give.  Scroll below and let me help you find the perfect item for yourself or a loved one.

My first stop at the mall was ALDO, their sales for the holidays are great and you can’t beat their normal prices either. Their handbags are one of my favorite things about them. You can find a dupe handbag for an amazing price. I found one! Below you will see mine and how I styled it. I purchased for under $50!

Isn’t it gorgeous? I’m obsessed. Thanks Aldo for a great find!

Next stop was Stuart Weitzman – I’m in LOVE with some of their new designs. Below you’ll find my top picks I found at Westfield Montgomery!

These Overcoat Booties are to DIE for, make a true statement right?!? These are on my wish list. Dear Santa, I promise I’ve been good this year. Size 9 please and thank you.

The Decor Sneaker below comes in 4 different colors and they are SO cute. An easy way to jazz up a simple pair of jeans and t-shirt. Who needs accessories when you can have them on your sneakers!!

My third stop was at Nordstrom! It’s like heaven right now. So many gift options and they go above and beyond to help you find the perfect item. In their beauty section you can find endless possibilities. Below are some of my favorites!

The MAC counter — display is not only on point but makes you wanna buy everything!

I had to pick up this case from Sonix for my iPhone X that will be arriving soon. 

Rebecca Minkoff bags!!!! Can we talk about these details?! To die for. Their selection of handbags are unreal and stunning. A great way to add to your collection or someones.

Need Dry Bar at home?! Nordstrom has it covered!!! Whether it’s a blow dryer or an entire gift set. Bring that blowout home.

One of my favorite beauty brands has the cutest and greatest gift sets. Clinque is killing it! Nordstrom has a huge selection of their items as well as their beauty counter. 

Victoria Secret was having a killer sale and I had to make sure I stopped someone for Carl, right? haha. They also had the cutest gift sets as well. I think I’m truly a sucker for a good gift set. Their matching PJ sets are also a good idea for your girlfriends. You can have a fun sleepover and all relax in your new pjs, at least that’s something I find fun!!

My next stop was to Michael Kors! I love how Westfield has all types of stores, everything from household stores, high end department stores, to budget friendly stores as well. It’s a great one-stop shop for everything you need for Holiday shopping.

I walked into Michael Kors and was blown away by their presentation of everything. Not only was everything stunning, I wanted to try on each piece of clothing. If you’re looking for a Holiday dress, outfit or jacket, you HAVE to head to Michael Kors. Below I’ll show you what I walked away with….

This dress is GORGEOUS. I saw it, and had to bring it home. I’m wearing a size small! I’ve linked the dress HERE incase you don’t have a store near you!

I wanted to hit up every store but my last stop for the day was Kiehl’s!

They have some of my favorite lotion and skin care products. I had to make a stop to see what great gift giving ideas they had. I found the cutest Mickey Mouse themed items which also teamed up with Feed America. What’s better than buying a great gift for someone but also giving back to a great cause at the same time!

If you’re local to the DMV area – You need to stop by Westfield Montgomery Mall for all your Holiday shopping needs. You can even bring the kids by to see Santa!! One stop shop.

How to transition your favorite skirt from Summer into Fall.

You can easily take your favorite skirt from an earlier season, pair with some tights and you can rock it all year ’round! It’s a great way to not only be able to enjoy one of your favorite pieces of your wardrobe but to even save from having to buy another item! Don’t get me wrong, I am all about finding great deals and adding new staple pieces in your closet, but also re-using items. Don’t forget how much we waste and throw out, re-use or even donate. What item you might be over, someone else might be looking for! Just my 2-cents for the day!!

With that being said! I found this skirt at Macy’s Backstage — it’s part of Macy’s but a separate sections where they discount items to move them out of the store. If you haven’t checked if they have one at your local Macy’s you can click HERE to find out. It’s an amazing way to find a great deal.

I was gifted a few items from my local store and this suede skirt and these booties were two of the items I could leave without!! This skirt is out of stock but I have linked some great trendy skirts below. You could wear them to work with tights or skip the tights for date night or a night out with the girls!

I always buy 4-5 pair of tights for the Fall/Winter season and wear them out! I’ve linked some great affordable ones below. Black is usually my go-to color but this season I think I might add a red, grey and olive pair to my collection. I’ve been leaning towards the bolder side these last few months. (As if you couldn’t tell with some of my #ootds – haha)

I hit the jackpot when I found these booties by GUESS at Macy’s Backstage. They were marked down from $135 to under $30!!!!! I was like “Yep, coming home with mama!” – Also they have great support. I was shocked to be honest. Didn’t know how painful it would be to break them in. I’ve noticed with all the GUESS shoes I’ve purchased, they have all been conformable. Good job Guess, high five to you for not killing my feet. Below I’ve linked some similar styles that I love and they are actually on sale as well. Click any of the photos below to shop and find out the sale price!

Can’t go wrong with a good classic GUCCI. Linked below are some of my favorites including the one I’m wearing. Different colors can be seen by clicking the photos below.

Sunnies — for me, it’s a way for myself not to get busted for rolling my eyes. lol Anyone else? Can’t be just me. Linked below are some great pairs for a reasonable price! (First two pairs use TONYA15 for 15% off)

Last but not least is this gorgeous top! I love when I can get away without having to accessorize as much, I know total excuse but it’s true. This top seals the deal for me! A peek-a-boo cut out in the neck which makes a choker. Thank you and you’re welcome. haha Direct link is below, also comes in 4 colors and I’m wearing a small! I also linked some of my favorite others from their “top” section!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you got an idea how to turn one of your earlier seasoned pieces into something you can rock for Fall or Winter! xx, Tonya Michelle

Bell Sleeves, Studs and Must Have Denim!

One thing I love about fashion, being able to do whatever you want . Maybe you’ll wake up today wanting to only wear yoga pants, or maybe you’ll rock out that new hand bag with those studded heels — feeling like a rockstar either way.

These studded heels are marked down to $41 from $119!!! They come in grey and black. 

Also linked some similar for less, Shop Below!

This bag is a deal! I just got it in the mail last week from them. Comes in this light grey  or olive color. I personally love the grey, goes with everything! It’s under $40.

Also linked some other bags that I currently adore!

Tassel earrings, an easy way to make a statement!

Last but not least let’s talk about this bell sleeve sweater and these jeans!!

I linked this sweater and similar ones for all under $30! 

I’ve gotten so many questions on these jeans and I know a few of your picked them up when I first posted about them, they do run true to size and they also hold their shape all day long. I’m a fan! You’ll find them linked below!

Hope I helped you find some great Fall additions! It’s right around the corner.

Get My Curls with Sexy Hair. Hair tutorial video included!!

Hey Ya’ll,

I can’t tell you how many messages I get about how I curl my hair and which products I love to use in my routine. This post has been long over due!! Today I have partnered up with Sexy Hair to show you how to prep and curl your hair to get some gorgeous curls.

As much as you want to get right down to how to achieve these curls that will last you all day, it’s important to first go over how to care and prep your hair for the styling! I used to not “prep” for my styling and sadly didn’t have the shine I wanted and I even had really bad split ends, I highly recommend using the products below.

Also, don’t forget to view the video below,

you’ll see how easy it is to achieve these curls!

LONG SEXY HAIR – LUXURIOUS SHAMPOO
Click HERE for the direct link.
This shampoo will do the cleaning you need, removing any of the left over product you might have in your hair as well as providing that soft shine everyone wants!  This is good for even extensions.
 
LONG SEXY HAIR – LUXURIOUS CONDITIONER
Click HERE for the direct link.
This gentle conditioner is infused with Moringa Oil & Biotin. These ingredients help give you hair smoothness and shine that you want. It will also help hydrate those ends! I use this on my ends, leave on for 2-3 mins and then rinse while I’m still in the shower.
HEALTHY SEXY HAIR – SOY TRI-WHEAT LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER
Click HERE for the direct link.
For those days when your hair needs extra love and hydration you can use this! I use this 2-3 times a week depending on how much I’m blow drying or styling my hair. If you swim a lot, this is a great product to have as well. You simply spray on your damp towel dried hair and brush through! Easy as that and your hair will be thanking you later.
HOT SEXY HAIR – PREP ME 450°F HEAT PROTECTION BLOW DRY PRIMER 
Click HERE for the direct link.
This is the most important part of your hair routine. Prepping your hair for styling is a must, if you don’t you will have major breakage and spit ends. No one wants that, right?! I use a quarter size dab while my hair is damp. I rub in-between both hands and then run my hands through my hair.
Three major key factors:
– Protects up to 450°F
– Reduces breakage by up to 68%!*
– No product feel, ideal for layering with other styling products!
(*Results from Independent Study against untreated hair.)
HEALTHY SEXY HAIR- SOY TOUCHABLE WEIGHTLESS HAIRSPRAY
Click HERE for the direct link.
I use Soy Touchable to achieve and hold my natural curls. It provides just the right amount of hold without the sticky or hard feeling. You’re able to still run your hands through your hair without tangling or stiffness. If you live in an area of any sort of humidity this is also the product for you. It has great humidity-resistance and controlling frizz. This also will help protect your hair when you curl it as well, but also make sure you use that Hair Prep as well!!!
Now the fun part! My hair tutorial is below.

Let me know if you have any questions, I’d love to answer.

Find The Perfect Jumpsuit!

I’m a huge fan of jumpsuits, not only cause they are versatile but super easy when you have no idea what to wear. It’s so simple to wake up, throw on the jumpsuit, accessorize and leave. I found this gorgeous stripe jumper from TJMaxx and it was under $25! Talk about a steal. Below you’ll find the cute jumper I purchased and I also linked some similar styles all under $45!!

I personally found this one to be super flattering. I love the tie around the waist, shows you have a waist and helps add a little something to the jumper! There are also slits on both legs which for this hot, humid weather really helps to stay cool.

Below I found three gorgeous stripe jumpers for all under $30.

You can style these with a pair of old school Adidas, wedges, or even sandals. Throw on a denim or leather jacket to make your look complete. I swear the possibilities are endless. And for under $30 you can beat the price, I think these are timeless. No matter what year it is, these will be in style.

Below I picked out some solid jumpers which are all under $36!

Also wanted to find some cute and affordable sandals that are all under $50. 

I hope you found a great jumper and sandals to add to your closet! There can never be enough.

5 Summer Staple Pieces That You Must Have.

There’s so many “Summer Must Haves” out there but I think you really need 5 good items and you can mix and match these with other staple pieces in your closet and you’ll be set! A good pair of white jeans, a nude pair of open toe heeled booties, a blush blouse, some good sunnies and of course a staple clutch that’s either nude or brown. Below I’ve linked these direct items that I styled and also some others that I found on sale as well! I appreciate you shopping from the links below, it truly helps me succeed as a full time blogger! Happy Shopping! 🙂

For me, I don’t believe in not wearing white after Labor Day, I’ll wear mine whenever I feel like it. haha who’s with me?! I love a good pair of white destroyed skinny jeans that are stretchy!!! This is a must for me, for a girl who loves to eat, I don’t want to be uncomfortable after a meal. What’s also great about these jeans is that they hit perfectly at my ankle, no need to roll them up if you don’t feel the need to. This brand is called Ashley Mason, they are based out of LA & I’ve been a fan ever since they let me try these a few months back. I’ve worn them on repeat if you haven’t noticed. No shame in my game – haha. You can find them at Nordstrom Rack!

Below I’ve linked some of the newest jeans and they are all currently on sale as well. I just bought the black ones for myself! They also run true to size.

Also they have some shorts 40% off!

I got this lace hollowed out peplum top on sale and it’s STILL on sale for under $40! It’s a gorgeous piece that can also be worn in Spring, Summer or Fall. I’ve linked it below as well as some of my other favorites that I found. I’m wearing a size Medium for reference! (I size up on their website)

I’m a huge lover of open toed booties that you can wear in the Summer and then transition into Fall as well. Why not buy something you can wear for more than just one season, it’s a win – win to me!

The ones I’m wearing above are from FashionJunkee I shop from her online boutique a lot, I love her items, the price points are great and she’s a small business!!! These come in a few different colors, you can click HERE for the Taupe that I’m wearing, HERE for the Tan and HERE for a similar pair in Black. All three pairs are under $40!

I also found some others below that are currently on sale. Click the images to shop!

My clutch is CORK! Amazing right? It’s from Spicer Bags and the direct link is HERE. It’s a little on the expensive side for what I usually buy and shoot but I’ve honestly used it so much this summer that I don’t mind. I feel as long as you’re getting good use out of an item, the price is ok!

I’ve linked some others I found below as well.

Don’t forget to add shades to your face! These sunnies I have on above are Prada and I found them brand new thrifted for $100 VS retail of $300. I was thrilled when I found them! I’ve linked some of my favorites below that are all under $20. Again, I love a good deal!!

Hope you found something you love on this post! I shared my favorites.

Stylish Sneakers; GREAT Relaxed and Chic.

I’ve been a sneaker girl since I can remember. Shockingly for those who didn’t know me while I was little, I grew up such a tom boy. I used to rock basketball shorts, cut off t-shirts and sneakers. It was how I felt most comfortable. Cant lie, even today I rather be in a pair of leggings and sneakers! Haha Who’s with me? The sneakers I styled below are actually Men’s! I love a style that can be also styled by a woman and no one would even know, I bet you wouldn’t of! Below you’ll find the G-Knit by GREATS! I’m wearing a size 7 in mens, I’m a size 9 in womens! I also linked them, scroll down!

GREATS is the first sneaker brand to be born in Brooklyn. They are designed off of the Brooklyn Style you can find all over NYC. 2. All of their designs are inspired by the most iconic silhouettes in the business. They then source the highest quality materials (like Italian calfskin), add their unique design details (like on-trend colors), and sell sneakers directly to the consumer (Us!)  to maximize value. Win – Win if you ask me!!

GREATS wanted to be able to provide luxury sneakers at 60% off the Fifth Ave prices!

The G-Knit comes in three colors; Nero – Cadet – Grey.

I’m sporting the Grey, direct link to shop this sneaker is here.

They are under $90!!

Some of their other designs that I have on my wish list is below:

The Royale in Blush Mono; Direct link here.

The Wooster in Perforated Blanco; Direct link here.

I received the shoes for free but provided my true and honest opinion.

Summer Steals Under $50!!

I rounded up some of my favorite easy Summer looks; you can mix and match these with your everyday other items in your closet. To me, that’s what everyone needs. Items that you can wear with anything and have fun creating your own fashion statement! Below everything is linked, YAY!!

Linked some of my favorite sunnies for under $20!!

What I love about about finding great deals is you can add a great staple piece to your closet without breaking the bank. I’m a firm believer that fashion isn’t about how much you pay for an item but how you’re able to express yourself everyday in a different way. Don’t forget who you are and what makes you feel good when you put on those shoes, whether they cost $100 or $5 from a thrift store.

If I could wear these heels to bed, I would. That’s how much I’m currently obsessed with them. I purchased mine from Macy’s Backstage and I have linked them below for you. They come in three different colors. Black & Tan are currently $99 but the black is half off! If you live near a Macy’s Backstage I scored them for $44.99 in the Tan.

I’m also guilty of wearing these shorts at least 4 days a week, Carl took them away from me and told me to purchase another pair so I have TWO. haha I did just that. They are linked below for an amazing sale price. They have stretch and run true to size.

 Back at it again with my favorite white shorts, I told you I live in them. haha Also this tank is left in a few sizes and colors below. I had to search everywhere for it, Nordstrom sold out so fast. I love this tank because you can wear it casually as well as dress it up as you’d like. I wore mine to a cookout!

 

I’ll be doing weekly fun Summer Deal posts so keep your eye out. If you have any questions on how anything fits feel free to email me TonyaMichelle26@hotmail.com or send me a direct message to instagram and I can help. My instagram handle is @tonyamichelle26
