Faux fur is one of my favorite things to wear. Whether it’s on boots, jacket or even my handbag. I’m a huge fan to be honest. I have “way too much” even though I truly don’t think you can ever have enough.
If there is a certain look you’re going for, a simple or “extra” faux fur jacket can really seal the outfit.

One shoe trend that I just can’t get enough of this summer are slides! Caroline and I have both been obsessed with slide sandals and mules this summer and they are the perfect staple to add to your wardrobe and an easy transition into fall!
Here are some of my favorites:
Also some others:
Kendall & Kylie Shiloh Chain Leather Slide Sandal
Nordstrom Rack is always my go-to for shoes and when I saw these chain leather slides on sale a few months ago, I knew I just had to get them! I have these in white and I am obsessed and get so many compliments on them. PLUS they’re on sale for 70% off right now!
For a sportier look, I got these Adidas slides in white and love them. They’re so comfortable and look sleek for coming from the gym or taking the dogs on a walk. Plus they’re on sale at Journey’s right now!
Another pair of slides that I love that Caroline purchased recently from Journey’s are these slides from Not Rated! They come in black, white and nude and they’re SO cute. I love the floral detail on them and they’re dressier than wearing flip-flops!
I have partnered up with Macy’s today to let you know about these heels that I couldn’t pass up from Blue by Betsey Johnson I personally love a shoe that I can wear when I’m going to a romantic dinner with my man, yet also out on the town with my girls to grab drinks!
They are PERFECT for the clear/plastic trend that is super hot right now. Honestly, they are comfortable and don’t need “broken in” — which is a huge plus. There is nothing worse than buying the hottest shoes that you can’t wait to wear and then they kill your feet. I know when I first got a pair of “clear” shoes I thought they wouldn’t be comfortable.
So, ladies — do yourself a favor and buy the shoes! haha. You can wear these heels with anything. Jeans, a dress, work attire, wedding attire, girls night out… You name it!!
They also have a few other options and styles in this style.
Wearing a pair of jeans and tank — you can easily add these heels and you have an outfit. These shoes will be the only thing people notice. I had 4 people ask me where I got these shoes during this shoot. Macy’s!! These also come in a flat sandal form – super cute, same style just flat.
They also make a smaller heal version with rhinestones. The heel is 1-1 1/2 inches. Super cute for Summer and day to day! These would go perfectly with jeans and a white t-shirt or a dress.Adding some sparkle to your outfit is always a good thing. I know for me, I can’t ever be in a bad mood when I love my outfit and rhinestones are included.
Whether you’re looking for some sparkle or a simple pair of sneakers — Macy’s is where you should head to get a new pair of shoes and a deal. Nothing better than saving money on something you’re looking to add to your wardrobe. If you have any questions on these shoes in general or how to style them, let me know and I can try to help!
I’m a sucker for a beautiful embroidered dress! Maybe it’s because I grew up around my grandma always making clothes, or something that was embroidered beautifully. It has a soft spot in my heart. I wanted to show you guys some of my favorites that I have purchased and those that I still have in my cart. I love how you can have fun with how you style these. I added a hat and went with a pair of heels. You can add a belt, wear flats, even go total boho and do your hair in braids.
I found this white dress online last week and had to purchase. It’s currently 50% off with their code from the website (it changes so when you click just look for the new code that appears)
Also linked some of my favorite plus size embroidered options as well:
Have fun getting dressed everyday! Wether it’s sweat pants or a dress, embrace your style and what you love. Being able to express myself different everyday is amazing.
As you may know, I recently hired a personal assistant! Caroline is a recent graduate from James Madison University and has a fresh perspective on entering the working world. Check out her recommendations on work attire that’s not only affordable, but cute too!
Hi! I’m Caroline and Tonya’s personal assistant. Recently, I did a major closet haul, ditching my party clothes from the past four years and swapping them for work clothes since I’m an adult and all now. I went on a mission to find cute clothes that are office appropriate yet affordable on a recent-grad budget and these were my finds!
Ann Taylor Loft
Inspired by my Mom’s business casual outfits, I decided to stop at Ann Taylor Loft first. Loft is known for their work attire that fits every body type. You can’t go wrong with work pants, and Loft has some great capri-length work pants that are perfect for hot summer temps but comfy for cold office environments! I got this pair in black and khaki.
I also got another work-wardrobe staple that every working girl should have, a jean jacket! I love a good jean jacket, and wanted one to wear exclusively to work and this one is perfect. I bring it along with me since the office can get pretty chilly.
Express is by far my favorite store. Their clothes are quality, they always have a sale, and they have a great student discount if you’re still in college! (or still use your student ID for discounts like me). I got another pair of work pants, but these are ones that are high-waisted and tie into a cute little bow! I got these in black, but I love this striped pair! This is great for going to work and hitting a happy hour later!
Some of the other tops I got from Express were also inspired by the work-to-play idea I had in mind, such as this super cute piped Hudson tank that comes in a lot of different colors! I got this one in ivory.
My next spot was Forever 21. I love this store because you can get away with not spending too much money but walk away with more than one piece of clothing. My office environment is pretty casual, so I try to opt for a t-shirt dress like this one and pair it with some cute sandals. This dress also goes perfectly with the jean jacket I bought from LOFT!
Last but not least, I headed to Nordstrom Rack to wrap-up my shopping. If you’re more of a high-end brand kind of girl, this one’s for you. I needed another work shoe and maybe another top, so I headed here.
I found this textured ruffled blouse in olive green and fell in love. It’s so cute and very work appropriate. It looked so cute with the khaki capri dress pants I got from LOFT!
Lastly, I wanted a work sandal that I could also use for other occasions like a summer party. I found these thong sandals from Franco Sarto in black that I love. They’re so comfy and sleek and I can dress them up or down.
Some other favorites from Nordstrom Rack that are affordable:
Tonya also told me about some great online boutiques that are perfect for finding some other items that you could wear to work! Vici Dolls – she has a discount code that is: TONYA20, for 20% off anything on their site. The photo below is a great jumpsuit you can add a cardigan or blazer with!
Have a favorite store to shop for work clothes? Comment below!
If you missed my Insta-story take over at @lolashoetiquedolls its ok! I still have you covered. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite Summer must haves and you can also get 30% until tomorrow using code: TONYA at checkout. After Monday 5/28, you can use the code and receive 20% off.
**Please note, their items sell out QUICK.
First up I want to talk about getting yourself a MUST have two piece – not swimwear, but outfit! Whether it’s a dress or blazer / short suit. They are a great way to look like you have it all together and still feel sexy, haha. Anyone else agree?
I’m wearing a size Medium in the shorts and blazer.
Direct link to purchase the Blazer HERE and the Shorts HERE.
Don’t forget to use the discount code: TONYA for a % off!
Paired this look with one of my favorite heels; Naturalist! These have a thicker heel which to me, gives more support and they didn’t need to be broken in. Win-Win if you ask me. They are under $30 and even a bigger discount when using code TONYA. They come in three colors and directly linked below.
This dress sold out SO fast but I was able to snag one in a size Medium. I was SO happy. Like I said above, if you see something you love, you need to purchase. Don’t wait. I’ve learned my lesson this way….haha. I will link some other similar styles that I adore below.
I first saw these heels and was like “YAS GIRL” – haha needed them instantly. They run true to size, didn’t leave me with blisters and didn’t need to be broken in. Again, a must! They are selling out quickly after the Insta-story take over today, two sizes left: shop them HERE.
I wanted to round up some of my favorite Spring and Summer dresses from Bobeau and they also have a 30% off discount code currently running — it’s ” GETAWAY ” Below you’ll find a few of my favorites. I know they are selling out of their sizes since this sale started so I recommend jumping on it!
This cotton dress comes in two different colors; white and denim. I personally love a good white dress for this season. It’s easy to add a denim or leather jacket on. I pair with my current favorite cut out booties which are currently $20 off but only left in a few sizes. I linked some others below for you as well.
A new pair of sunnies is a must, the styles are always changing but it’s great to be able to find a company who produces the newest styles without breaking the bank. Below I’ve picked out some of my favorites and if you use my discount code it will make them under $50! Use code: tonyamichelle
I’ll be showing you more from this shoot and this brand shortly! Keep your eye out. In the meantime, enjoy shopping for some new Spring/Summer items!

April went by so fast and I can’t believe May is going to be this week! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite MVMT watches and sunnies for you today all in this post. All the different ways I’ve styled them and also simply wanted to give y’all a RAD discount code too!
First up some of their newest sunnies:
I rocked these on the beach, with a red dress and even with some black flares. They come in three different colors and are $45 when you use my code!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hair Food. The opinions and text are all mine.
I recently discovered Hair Food – I decided to end my evening last night with a good read and pampering myself and my new hair extensions to some extra love! I’m excited to share my review below and thank you Hair Food for partnering with me on this review.
Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner Infused with Honey Apricot Fragrance is the set I decided try. My hair tends to need extra moisture with all the products and heat I have been using recently.
I’m such a product junkie so I’ve been super excited to give these a try. My hair was SO happy – always remember, we take care of our bodies and skin…don’t forget your hair! I also love how the Shampoo products are Sulfate, Silicone, Paraben and Mineral oil free! That is a huge check mark in my book and the way I take care of my hair and my extensions.
I always make my shower or bath experience all about pampering myself and taking time to relax – a good 20 mins of peace is always needed. I love how Hair Food is based around pampering and hydrating your hair!
Let’s dive into the Key Benefits of the Shampoo:
Uniquely infused with honey and apricot fragrance
Moisture Shampoo is designed for system use with the Moisture Conditioner. Use together for luxurious moisture and nourishment for healthy looking hair
Mineral Oil Free
Key benefits of the Conditioner:
Cleansing Conditioner Infused with Honey & Apricot Fragrance
Lightweight Cleanser that leaves hair smooth and soft
A conditioning recipe that gently smoothes the hair cuticle and helps protect hair against future damage
Mineral Oil Free
The conditioner didn’t weigh my hair down — which I’m a fan of and personally NEED. I only use conditions half way down my hair to my ends. I don’t apply conditioner on my scalp, only shampoo!
For under $10 each, this is a great way to try a new product and give your hair the love it deserves. They also have some other great products in the line….a few I’m going to be trying in the future as well. Here are a few to keep your eye out for:
Hair Food Root Cleansing Shampoo Infused With Strawberry Ginger Fragrance
Hair Food Renew Shampoo Infused with Apple Berry Fragrance
Hair Food Volume Shampoo Infused With Kiwi Fragrance
Hair Food Gluten Free Color Care Shampoo Infused with Mandarin & Guava Fragrance
