Must Have Monday – Camo Jeans

Monday, again?! Is it me or did this weekend fly by?! TBH, I was a little nervous for this weekend. This was my first weekend in Colorado alone (kind of). My boyfriend went home to Florida to see his family and I stayed here in Colorado with our pupchild, Myla. Mike is pretty…

How to Shop Affordably

I, like many other fashionistas out there, like to mix affordable pieces with expensive pieces. I think it’s a great way to build an outfit and keep some money in the bank. The tricks to knowing how to shop affordably are knowing being able to choose affordable pieces that add value…

Trendy Thursday – Fishnets and Denim

Last week’s Why Wednesday (which you can check out here) talked about why you don’t need to follow trends to be stylish but it should have included a disclaimer that excluded fishnets. You NEED fishnets. I NEED fishnets. We all NEED fishnets. Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic but I…

The Midi Skirt

Little Black Dress from Day to Night

The Little Black Dress is another piece from my Closet Staples Checklist. I honestly don’t wear an LBD all that often (I have a hard time wearing one black piece of clothing). Although I don’t wear them much, I do have a few LBD’s that really come through in a clutch!

FAQ – Get to Know Me!

I don’t know about you, but I’m nosy. I like to know what they like and don’t like, what they want to eat (mostly because it will help me decide what to eat for dinner), what makes them happy, etc. I thought doing an FAQ might help other’s get to…

Three Reasons You’re Not So Basic

Welcome to She’s Not So Basic. I’m so glad you’re here! I decided to start SNSB for a few reasons: Reason 1: None of us are really ‘Basic’. Today we have this imaginary cult of “basics”. You know what I’m talking about… You’re in your Ugg boots (because it’s cold…
