PUFF SLEEVES

I don’t know about you, but puff sleeves always put me in a better mood in addition to elevating a look. They are playful but also add a bold touch to a simple outfit. Wear with shorts or jeans, pair with a skirt or trousers for the office, even get sassy by pairing with biker shorts and sneakers on the weekend. No matter what your personal style is, you can incorporate puff sleeves in to your wardrobe and make them your own. 

This top is Prologue from Target like a year ago, and I thrifted these shorts from Goodwill a year ago as well. All of my accessories are from Amazon {per usual these days – such great finds} and I’m wearing my go to mules that I have in two colors, also from Amazon. You can shop my exact accessories and shoes, plus some really cute and similar puff sleeve tops and denim shorts on the LIKEtoKNOW.it shopping app {super easy to download if you don’t have it already}! I’m @stylingbyerica on the app. Check out all of my LTK posts here

BLACK OWNED BRANDS ON AMAZON

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Hi Friends!

If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen in my stories or feed that I am highlighting black owned businesses/brands and working on more collaborations and partnerships with black owned brands {especially female owned}. This is one way that I can show my support and put action behind my words. I’ve been making purchases from different shops that I follow and sharing in my stories {more to come in my feed} and encouraging followers to try the products as well.

As most of you know, I am an Amazon Influencer. Me and my husband have been shopping on Amazon for years so it made sense. I mainly share fashion and beauty finds on Instagram, but my idea lists on my Amazon Page go far beyond that. I have lists you can shop for Men, Kids, Kitchen, Grocery, Home and more. That said, I am on a mission to find black owned brands that sell their products on Amazon. I’ve already started adding products to my lists {by category} and I will continue to search and add. I have also created a new idea list titled ‘Black Owned Brands’ where I will add one product from each black owned brand I find to make it easy for you to search {in addition to adding them to the specific category lists}. Shop it here.

Below are 20 black owned brands you can shop on Amazon now! 🙂

Side note: If you are new to shopping Amazon Fashion…when you see an image on one of my Idea Lists, don’t assume that’s the only style/color/print of the item. When you click on the image there are usually multiple colors/prints/versions of the style that you can shop. 

FLORAL COVER UP

It’s already full on Summer in Arizona with temps in the triple digits. I’m starting to stock up on swimsuits and cover ups since you can’t have too many living here! That said, I want to keep it budget friendly as well since I like to have options. 🙂 

I love this neutral floral print kimono cover up I found on Amazon Prime for $16.99 and its finally back in stock! I got this suit from Lulu’s last year but its still available and I found a very similar style on Amazon as well. I’ve linked everything I’m wearing at the bottom of this post. 

If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my post this morning about presets. I used the ‘Fashion Lady’ preset from @nickypresets for these images. You can browse and shop the preset collections HERE and use code ‘erica20’ for 20% off!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

DATE NIGHT JEANS

Hi Friends!

I LOVE bodysuits and you guys have been loving the orange and denim I’ve been showing lately; so I wanted to give you the links for this look here as well since LTK doesn’t link Zara pieces. I want one of every bodysuit from Zara in every color, for real! I’m wearing a medium in both of mine for reference. This style fits larger than the one in my previous post, but they are both stretchy.

I have a hard time with jeans and generally prefer dresses, so when I find a pair I love I wear them on repeat. Josiah also likes me in jeans, so it’s fun to put together date night looks with denim. 🙂 I was sold on the wash of these jeans, then I tried them on and they were so comfortable! Wash + fit/comfort + under $50 price tag = WIN! I think a bodysuit always pairs well with denim and its fuss free since there no tucking, bunching, etc. Make it sexier with a plunging neckline or open back. For date night I always add heels to complete my look, but this look would also be cute with sandals or sneakers. These Old Navy jeans are currently 30% off! They are seriously comfy and have just enough stretch to be bearable during the hot desert months. Outfit links at the bottom of this post!

SEDONA

Happy Weekend Friends!

Our family took a little day trip to Sedona yesterday and we had the best day! Sedona is absolutely beautiful and the weather was gorgeous. It was pretty windy but felt amazing. There is so much to see and do in Sedona so we barely scratched the surface! If you have never been for sure add it to your list if you are ever in Arizona. 

Since we went with the kids I knew I needed to be comfortable but I really didn’t want to wear athletic wear. A bodysuit is always my first choice since it stays in place and allows me to really move with the kids. These my favorite denim shorts I’ve ever owned and worth every penny! I bought them as a birthday gift for myself three years ago and I’ve worn them on repeat all Summer long since and they are still going strong. True denim will last, but it does give so size down. This style truly looks good on everyone and if you want to invest and have that one pair of shorts you can grab, throw on and feel good in every day these are it. Always wash in cold water and flat or hang dry {I rarely wash mine}. I received lots of messages and comments about these shorts and this look so I’ve linked everything at the bottom of this post. 🙂 

Have you been to Sedona? If so I would love to know what your favorite place or trail there is. We plan on going back often and next time we want to visit different spots. Here are the few spots we went to and highly recommend!

  1. Little Horse Trail {fun for kiking, biking, views}
  2. Grasshopper Point {have $9 cash for parking, wear a swimsuit if you want to go in the water, wear water shoes with grips for walking on the rocks to get to the water}
  3. Oaxaca Restaurant {amazing Mexican food with gorgeous views from the patio}
  4. Chapel of the Holy Cross {beautiful views}

I hope everyone is having a fun and safe holiday weekend!

Hi Friends!

I’ve showed this suit a lot on Instagram and that’s because its one I always reach for. I love a suit with detachable straps, especially when it stays up without them {a must for moms}. 😉 Anyone who knows me knows I rarely meet a stripe I don’t like, so combine that with the bit of frills and its the perfect blend of sporty and girly. This suit is always good for days when I don’t feel my best or my wax isn’t perfect. The bit of frill detail adds a little extra coverage. I actually have this suit in the rusty brown as well! It’s $29.99 on Amazon Prime but sizing is very limited right now for all color options. I’m sure they will restock, but you never know so if you’re a medium grab it now! 

You already know I’m obsessed with these sunglasses and all of my Amazon Fashion accessories. I’ve been living in jewelry finds from Amazon! The price is right and I’ve been really happy with the quality. Shop my look at the bottom of this post, including the visor that I’ve been sporting on repeat. Also remember you can always find all of my Amazon favorites for the family {+Follow me} on my personal Amazon page

DATE NIGHT

Happy Saturday!

I put this look here because this slip dress is my absolute favorite and LIKEtoKNOWit doesn’t let you link ZARA items. I bought this dress a few months ago and I seriously might need to buy a back up. It’s amazing for $40! I wore it last night for date night and I always feel fab in a slip style dress. They are super versatile and can be dressed up or down, plus easy to layer. 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday Friends!

So you guys, I’m not usually a sarong person at all but I loved the color of this one so I decided to order it. I mean, for $13 I had to at least try it! I immediately loved the fabric and ease of it tied around my waist…but when I realized I could wear it 14 others ways I got totally hooked. Now I need a few more! It’s also perfect to have in my bag if I need a blanket when I take a walk with the kids. I like to get coffee and sit with them by the lake and that sort of thing. Someone always wants a blanket to sit on, or Emma is cold, etc. 

Here are just three simple ways I tried and I’ll show you more later. Don’t worry! When you order the sarong it comes with a little instruction booklet that makes it super easy. 

If you try it let me know what you think, what color you ordered, and your favorite way to wear it! Post of photo or story wearing it on Instagram, tag me @stylingbyerica, and I’ll feature you in my stories. 

You can shop my head to toe look from Amazon Fashion! I’ve linked my personal Amazon page and the individual links at the bottom of this post. You can also find this look on LIKEtoKNOW.it {you can easily download the app if you don’t have it already}!

Happy almost Friday! 

I’ve talked about this dress a fair amount on Instagram and sharing it again here to show it with a pop color pair of shoes + bringing in additional print with the handbag. This dress can be styled very neutral, or jazzed up. 🙂 I just got these shoes for my birthday and I am obsessed {we know I love a good mule}. Loving all things orange right now! Is there a color you are super in to right now??

Also, who has tried self tanning? I’ve used Jergens Natural Glow lotion for years {I’m old school like that}, but recently tried a new oil by Golden Star Beauty on Amazon. I got the coordinating face serum and I’ve been really happy. I didn’t even use a mitt! The color in these photos is from using it and it lasts about a week. They have a tan extender lotion I want to try as well. It’s organic, gluten free, vegan, paraben free, cruelty free, and made in the USA. Yes, please! I linked the products with my outfit details below, but make sure to use my code ‘GSBXERICA’ for 15% off! 

You can shop my look from the links at the bottom of this post or from the LIKEtoKNOWit app & find me STYLINGBYERICA. The best way to purchase my Amazon favorites is from my direct provided links at the bottom of a blog post, or my Amazon page. I would love for you to follow me there as well!
