THE GIFT OF ORGANIZATION

Hey everybody, hey hey hey hey everybody!!!
I’M BACK and better than ever!!!!! Make sure to read the whole blog post , you don’t want to miss the amazing giveaway I’m doing with OTG|247

You guys!!! It’s been so long, but I’m back and what better way to celebrate than to do a giveaway!!!

First things first, I know it’s last minute and we are all trying to figure out what to gift our loved ones this holiday season! I have one answer, the gift of organization!

OTG bags are perfect for anyone, I mean anyone! From the on-the-go mom, to the booked makeup artist, and of course the busy blogger!

Before we get started I have to share two new products from OTG that I am obsessed with! First is the card case, I love that it holds cards and cash, it’s so cute, lightweight and the quality is amazing! Second is the flare strap, it’s unlike any other guitar strap because it is completely wipeable, just like OTG bags! This strap is perfect for switching up any look and pairing with your fave OTG bags!

ON-THE-GO MOM

I recommend all OTG bags but #5 is a favorite of mine because it’s the perfect size! It can be used as a smaller pouch in your diaper bag or tote, that carries all of your mommy things, or it can be used alone and worn as a clutch! So chic, so stylish, so practical! I typically put my card holder, lip gloss, a hair tie, mascara, and a mirror in this bag, but of course there’s room for so much more!

MAKEUP ARTIST

Again, OTG bags can me used any way you would like, but #6 is perfect for the makeup artist in your life because of its size and the fact that it comes with a strap that can be worn crossbody or on the shoulder! OTG Bags have wipeable interiors which means the leftover makeup on the brushes can easily be wiped clean from the bag!

BUSY BLOGGER

Lastly, we have to talk about how OTG is perfect for bloggers! All OTG bags are stylish which means not only can you use the bags to organize the content and various looks you need to shoot, but you can also use the bags as props in your photos! A win-win scenario! The top three bags I recommend for bloggers would be #1, #5, and #8!

#1 is perfect because it can hold your phone, cards, keys, and of course lip gloss! The necessities!

#5 is perfect because you put any accessories or even smaller bags in it! And of course you guys already know I love to use it as a clutch!!! It’s beautiful!

#8 is perfect because you can fit an entire look in this bag! That means shoes, accessories, tops and bottoms, already organized into one bag! How easy is that?!

MAKE SURE to use code ERISLANE to save at OTG|247

THE GIVEAWAY

Make sure to check out my Instagram Post because OTG|247 and I are coming together to give one lucky winner the card case, a flare strap, and 3 of my fave OTG bags!

~ Special thanks to OTG for sponsoring this post!

Happy Holidays beautiful people!! Cheers to the New Year!

    Out of my Comfort Zone Haul!

    This post is sponsored by Asoph.

    Hey everybody! You guys know I absolutely love Asoph, I always play it safe, but this time around I decided to go completely out of my comfort zone! Let’s see what happened!

    Don’t forget to use code: eri25 to save!

    I absolutely love this off the shoulder maxi dress it is so comfortable and just gives me Chic/ luxe vibes! This beautiful dress is the statement so I would keep the accessories gold and dainty, or you could even go without a necklace and just wear studs or thin gold hoop earrings! Comfy sandals or espadrilles wedges would look so amazing!

    Omg we have to talk about this black denim jacket because I’m obsessed!! I love the distressing detail throughout! This piece is perfect for fall because even if you don’t live somewhere where it gets cold, this is a nice layering piece without getting too hot! I love the button details, and this piece can go so well with so many different outfits!!

    When I first saw this beautiful white top I had to have it! You guys know I love white tops, but the crochet detailing at the bottom takes it to a whole different level, it was out of my comfort zone and I loved it! This piece would go great with boho flared pants, jeans, and even a jean skirt! Ahhh just so cute!!

    Okay so I wanted a more “work friendly” piece of clothing and when I came across this yellow striped top I knew this was the piece I needed! You guys!!! I love the lightweight material and the sleeve details are everything! This mustard color is amazing for Fall and you really can dress this piece up or down! For a more dressed up/ work appropriate look I would pair it with black dress pants, a blazer, heels, and a longer necklace! For a more casual look I think this top would look amazing with white jeans or a lighter denim, and sandals!

    Lastly we have this gorgeous belted maxi dress it screams vacay vibes to me!!! Remember ladies it doesn’t have to be summer to take a vacay and spend quality time with the ones you love! This beautiful dress would be perfect for a self-care day or simply going out to dinner with the family! I absolutely love the material! So stretchy and comfy! The added belt detail is perfection.

    So, what do you guys think?! This haul was out of my comfort zone and so fun!

    Asoph has some really amazing pieces, and I really believe they have something for everyone!

    Happy Saturday! Enjoy your weekend!

    Use code: eri25 to save.

    Hey everybody! You guys know that I have been loving bodysuits lately and this off the shoulder bodysuit is everything! I love the off the shoulder ruffle detail, it adds a flirty yet innocent vibe to the bodysuit! I would pair this with jeans or even flared boho pants for a effortlessly chic look! I love how comfortable and stretchy this bodysuit is, and I can definitely see myself wearing it all day!

    This beautiful maxi dress is a favorite of mine because it is so figure flattering and so so comfortable! I absolutely love the length and I thought it would be fun to show you guys how to make a maxi dress versatile for Fall! There are so many ways you could wear this dress, but pulling the sleeves up and layering it with a light jacket would give a more “fall inspired look!” You could even take it one step further and knot the bottom of the front of the dress and wear some boots or plain sneakers with it!

    How gorgeous is this top?! Omg the lace detailing and The bell sleeves just give me boho chic vibes! This top would pair perfectly with shorts, flared pants, jeans, and yes leggings of course! This is another great transitioning piece from summer to fall because it is a neutral color, lightweight, and it has sleeves!

    This asymmetrical dress is a must- have! From the color to the length, it is perfection! This is the perfect “goodbye summer, hello Fall” dress! This beautiful piece can be dressed up with heels and statement earrings, or dressed down with nude colored sandals and a light weight jean jacket! I love the quality of this dress and it’s the perfect around the house lounging piece! Please add this to your cart, ASAP! Haha.

    Lastly we have these leopard print palazzo pants and sis! You need them! Leopard print, well animal print in general is so trendy right now and these pants fit right in! I love that they have pockets, and the tie waist adds a chic touch! Pair these pants with a basic top or bodysuit and sandals and you have a WHOLE look girl! Yes!

    So, you know I have to ask, which was your fave?! Don’t forget to tag Asoph in your photos so they can see how you slay sis! Happy Friday!

    Happy Thursday everyone!!! This week is really flying by, honestly this year is flying by!! Asoph sent over some amazing pieces for me to share with you all and per usual I’m obsessed! Let’s dig in!

    I wanted to go outside of my comfort zone with this gorgeous two piece set and I am so happy that I did because it is everything!!! I love how stretchy it is, and this set could be whatever you make it for! Even though it’s yellow and striped, it really gives off neutral vibes for me!! If this is too matchy for you, you could wear them as separates and really express your style in creative ways!! If you wanted to wear it as a set, you could pair it with wedges and statement earrings. If you wanted to wear it separately I would pair the top with a jean jacket (black or white) and jeans or leggings! As far as the bottoms you could wear them with a solid color top, or even a nude colored bodysuit!

    Ahhh you guys I love this pink sweater it’s so soft and cozy, and it would pair well with leggings, jeans, a skirt, omg everything! The puffed detail makes this sweater unique and honestly we all need a unique piece in our wardrobe! Have fun with this piece, I would wear it with white jeans or even black leggings! You can wear it with low cut thick boots or even a to the knee leather boot! Everything about this sweater just gives me chic vibes!

    How cute is this Sweater party dress?! The color is perfect for this time of year, it’s the perfect holiday dress and I love that you can dress it up with heels or dress it down with boots! Gold or silver accessories would really make this dress pop! I love how simple yet elegant it is! The sleeve details and the high neck just gives me all the vibes! Perfect, perfect, perfect!

    YES YES YES!!! I am living for this biker short set as you guys know I love biker shorts and so this set is a must have! I love the black color because it is so versatile!! I mean literally you guys, you can pair this set with sneakers, wedges, heels etc! One of my favorite looks is pairing the biker set with a cute bag and vans ahhh obsessed!!! I’m telling you this set is Instagram worthy haha!

    I have been obsessed with Cami tops lately and this one is no exception! I love the Tie front detail, and the material of this top is everything! I would pair this with white jeans for a more chic look and for a more causal look you can pair it with leggings! I highly recommend everything, but girl you need this top!

    All of these pieces were amazing right?!! Which ones are you adding to your cart?!

    A Mattress for Bigger Figures?!

    This post is sponsored by Big Fig but as always I am sharing my honest opinions and a detailed review of our new mattress!

    Hey everybody! Yes you read the title right, a mattress specifically made for bigger figures, but everyone can sleep on it of course, my husband (who is not plus size) absolutely loves our Big Fig!

    Okay let’s start with a little back story. Myles and I both are hard workers, he serves in the Military, and I am Wife, Mommy of two beautiful girls, and a blogger! With our old mattress we would wake up with back pain, neck aches, and even headaches! Yikes! We would try to blame it on everything else except the fact that plain and simple our mattress that we spent nearly $1,000 sucked.

    Our old mattress had so much sag, no support, and it was way too soft, low, and just plain horrible. One day we said enough is enough, sleep is so important and we weren’t getting any so we knew it was time to take the plunge… again and get a new mattress even though we had the current one at the time for less than a year!

    I somehow came across Big Fig and saw all the amazing reviews, and photos, and basically I became obsessed! Long story short, Big Fig was kind enough to send us our new mattress, box spring, and foundation! We are now sleeping better than ever and yes all because of Big Fig!

    Let’s get into the details because you guys are going to be so amazed!!!

    The Shipping

    Okay so the shipping was crazy fast! We got everything delivered within a few days via FedEx and we were so surprised that a King sized bed fit into a box!

    The setup of the foundation and frame was quick and easy, the instructions were clear and detailed!

    Once we finished assembling the frame and foundation, we opened the bag which contained our new King sized Big Fig Mattress and it instantly expanded and was ready to lay on!

    The Review

    Myles and I love our Big Fig so much! We weren’t sure how it would work for the both of us since he is tall and slender and I am curvy and shorter but it totally works for those who are not plus size! I can confidently say this mattress works for all sizes! We were pleasantly surprised with the height of the mattress, it makes getting out of bed so much easier!

    The mattress is on the firmer side which is new for us but we totally loved it because we felt more supported! We learned from our last mattress that soft mattresses are a no-go and basically equal back pain, and honestly, nobody has time for that!

    I know a lot of times we as people don’t want to invest in the things we actually need but I’m telling you, you need Big Fig in your life! After all, we all know that a great nights rest changes everything!

    At the end of a long day My husband and I are so excited to get into our bed, it literally feels like we are staying in a hotel on vacation 24/7! We have Big Fig to thank for that!

    Invest in your sleep, invest in yourself, you deserve the best rest!

    Check out Big Fig and all their amazingness here.

    Thank you Big Fig for this opportunity and thank you all for chatting! I can’t wait to hear all about how Big Fig has changed your life! Have a great day!

This is a perfect piece to wear while we transition to fall because even though it’s a heavier material, it is still lightweight and the slit gives it versatility!

    Girl!!!! I was so excited when I got these jeans because these are literally my dream jeans, and I love love love the ankle detailing! I love the light distressing throughout the jeans, and the medium wash adds a touch of chic but street vibes! So me! You need these jeans in your life, they are so comfy, so stretchy, and the perfect bottoms to go with any top!

    Can we talk boho chic for a second?!! Ahh I’m obsessed with this dress, I now have four of these dresses, all in a different pattern/color! That’s how much I love it! This dress in another great summer/ fall transitioning piece because it is lightweight and airy but the long sleeves and the length add coverage and warmth! Ahhh stop reading this and just RUN to get yours haha!

    You guys know how much I love off the shoulder tops, and you know how much I love bodysuits so it is no surprise that I had to get this beautiful white, off the shoulder bodysuit! I love how stretchy, versatile, and comfy it is! Pair this bodysuit with the jeans and I’m telling you sis, it’s a look!

    Lastly we have what I like to call the “booty popping pants” hehe! I love these flared pants because they are a staple for everyday cuteness and comfort! You could easily pair these pants with the off the shoulder white bodysuit or even a light cardigan for a more comfy fall look!

    The Bundle Attack!

    Hey everybody!

    Happy Monday! Today’s post is all about my new hair! I have had this hair from the The Bundle Attack for a while now and I’m really loving it!

    Let’s get into the details! I made this beautiful unit using the Body Wave Bundles! I used three bundles and a frontal and I am so in love with the quality!

    First off, I want to talk about the packaging. I love how neat, organized and clean the packaging was, everything came bundled up and nothing was damaged or missing! The shipping was so fast, and the owner had great communication skills!

    Now onto the hair! Girl this body wave is everything! Straight out of the package there was no weird smell, no tangling and no shedding! I was able to run my fingers straight through the hair like butter and I love how thick each bundle was!

    I was so happy to see that the body wave frontal was the exact same texture, color, and quality as the bundles! A lot of times when ordering bundles and frontals, the quality and color don’t match up! Not with The Bundle Attack, they got you covered!

    Lastly I want to talk about how amazing this hair looks when it’s blow dried and straightened! Omg girl! You need this hair from The Bundle Attack! I love how thick this hair looks even when straightened, I am so impressed! My unit is so soft, so smooth, and so silky!

    Another plus to mention is that even after blow drying and straightening this beautiful hair and even after washing, and conditioning, this beautiful unit went back to its original wave pattern with no problem!

    Thank you so much to The Bundle Attack for sending over this amazing quality hair for me to make a forever unit out of! I can’t wait to try more styles and slay! Hehe!

    First up we have the beautiful Hawaii Maxi Dress! I absolutely love the color and the print! You guys know I live for off the shoulder and this beautiful dress is everything. I am wearing a size 2x and it’s so figure flattering, so comfy and so so soft! I love how this maxi is to the floor length so it gives it a more dressed up, chic vibe! I would keep the accessories simple with this beauty and let the dress be the focal point!

    This beautiful Flower Bloom Dress gives me boho chic vibes! I love every single thing about it!!! The flutter sleeve detail, the colors, the curved hem, the off the shoulder touch! Everything! One thing that I really love about this piece is that because of the colors, and because of the long sleeves, it can easily be a transitional piece for fall! Again, I would keep the accessories simple because the dress itself is phenomenal!

    Girl!!! This Tie Front Flared Cami Top is a must-have for sure!! Omg I love it so much, it’s just so effortlessly beautiful! For a more dressed up/ luxe vibe I paired it with white jeans and my rockstud sandals but you can easily dress it down with blue jeans and sneakers! This beautiful cami is very versatile and I love the camel color!

    How cute is this Strawberry swirl dress?! I love the color scheme and how relaxed but so girly it is! The back ties up and has pink tassels hanging from it and I think that’s the perfect touch! This dress is perfect for the beach, a picnic, a day with the girls and a more dressed up errand type of look! I love this one so much and every time I wear it I don’t want you I take it off!

    Lastly we have the beautiful Belted Floral Print Tunic Dress! This dress is a work of art. Period. I absolutely love every single detail from the very top to the very bottom!

    Hey everybody! I decided to do a more minimal campaign with Asoph this time around and I am obsessed! I also have the cutest pair of heels to share with y’all! Yes girl Asoph has more than women’s clothes, they also have shoes, accessories, and even men’s clothing!

    Let’s Dive in!

    First we have this effortlessly chic black dress! Omg I love it so much! I sized up one size because I wanted the more flowly effortless look, but I didn’t have to! This dress runs true to size! I love it so much because it is so versatile, so lightweight and perfect for the summer! I dressed it up by adding hoop earrings, and the beautiful studded heels from Asoph!

    I am obsessed with these heels because they look expensive but are so affordable and I love it! I highly recommend them because I love how comfortable and how chunky the clear heel is!

    I have really been loving off the shoulder dresses lately, and this beautiful white dress is truly a work of art! I love how figure flattering, stretchy and effortlessly romantic this beautiful piece is! I kept the accessories gold and simple but since this is a white dress, the possibilities are endless, you could even wear pop of color accessories to really get the whole summer vibe going!

    Lastly we have the perfect summer dress. I really love this dress and I got so many compliments on it! It gives me picnic vibes and what better thing to do in the summer than go on a picnic?! I sized up one size because I knew the material wouldn’t be that stretchy on bottom for my wider hips! I love that this dress is lined, the material and quality of the material is out of this world amazing! What really sold me on this dress is the tie front and I love that the straps are adjustable so if you have a smaller or wider bust this dress will work for you!

    So, I have to know, what was your favorite of the four pieces? I really loved everything per usual haha! Happy Sunday beautiful people! We will chat soon!

    3 BEAUTY PRODUCTS YOU NEED

    You guys!!!! How are we feeling today?! It’s the middle of the week, yay!!

    Today I am sharing my top 3 “beauty” must-haves; CHUB RUB, FENTY LIP GLOSS, and my TULA Hydrating Day & Night Cream!

    CHUB RUB

    Girl!!!!! This is a must-have for sure! If you have beautiful thick thighs, your thighs will love you for this!!! This product helps stop chafing and lasts for hours! You guys, I was skeptical at first, but girl let me tell you, I do not leave the house without applying it first and having an extra one in my bag for the just in case!

    I love that CHUB RUB is all natural and has organic coconut oil in it! Most importantly though, it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin! I highly recommend!

    A bonus is that CHUB RUB can be used anywhere where your skin rubs together, not just your thighs!

    TULA

    Girrrrrlll! Wow. Period. I have fallen in love with TULA products, I can’t pick a favorite but I wanted to choose one product that I thought would be super beneficial for anyone, and that is the hydrating day and night cream!

    First off I have to say that I love the fragrance of TULA products, not all of the products I have from them have a fragrance but a few of them do and I love love love it!!!

    Whenever I use my TULA cream I instantly start glowing! I put it on before my makeup in the morning and ever since using it I have gotten so many compliments and questions on how I am glowing! The answer is TULA 💙

    FENTY

    I am obsessed with my Fenty gloss! It comes in three shades and I have the rose nude color! It is so universal, and smells amazing and I love the packaging!

    I love how hydrating this gloss is and it’s so versatile, whether you’re wearing a full out glammed make-up look or you’re just wearing mascara and brows, this lip gloss is a must-have!

    That’s all I have for today beautiful!!! Thank you so much for chatting with me! I’ll see you on Friday! I hope you have the best week!

    The Good, The Bad, The Ugly & The Great of Blogging ( what no one talks about)

    Hey everybody!

    Today’s post is a little different… who am I kidding, it’s a lot different but it’s something I need to talk about, it’s something you need to hear!

    Since I like leaving off on good notes let’s start with the ugly and end with the Great.

    The Ugly

    The truth is you can say numbers don’t matter all you want, but at the end of the day, they do.. that’s just the ugly truth. The numbers may not matter to you, but they matter to brands, they matter to companies who want to work with you and who you want to work with!

    With that being said, numbers shouldn’t matter, and you have the ability to remind yourself that deep down they really don’t. Your worth is not determined and will never be determined by how many of those small hearts you get on a small phone.

    You worth is so much more than that. You mean so much more than that.

    The Bad

    People can spot crap. You shouldn’t be a blogger for the money, because let me tell you, if you are, you are setting yourself up for failure and disappointment. Blogging can be a emotional rollercoaster. It’s filled with other bloggers and influencers, content creators, and overall so many amazing people, that sometimes we catch ourselves comparing, doubting and questioning ourselves. It can be difficult to produce the ‘perfect’ content for your followers all while remaining true to yourself and being happy with what you are putting out in order to get these sponsorships… You wonder why someone with less following is getting campaigns that you aren’t , you wonder why someone has more following than you, you wonder and wonder and wonder. But this is why it’s important to be authentic and stay true to yourself, that way you won’t have to please others and lose yourself! You must always remember where you come from and remember why you are doing this. I find this to be very helpful when creating my content. Sometimes we simply overthink the simpliest things.

    The Good

    My best advice is to stay true to yourself and constantly remind yourself why you are doing what you’re doing.

    That being said if your main goal is to grow and make blogging a full time job, the best tips I’ve learned are to be consistent (keep in mind this doesn’t mean you need to post everyday of every second. Remember to be present outside of social media). Next, be engaged and honest! Don’t collab with brands for the money, collab with them because you believe in their product, you believe in their mission, you believe in their purpose.

    Your supporters will respect you a lot more when you genuinely promote brands and companies that you would purchase product from with your own money. I know that starting off it’s so exciting to have any and every brand send you free goodies to promote, but just remember that they are a whole company. You are one person, your brand is YOUR face, your reputation, your image. Choose wisely.

    The Great

    Always remind yourself why you are doing this, I cannot stress this enough! Blogging is supposed to be fun.

    Blogging is fun.

    It sounds so simple but you would be surprised at how many people get so caught up with producing the perfect content that they forget the most important thing, having fun. It is supposed to be fun, don’t let it stress you out!

    The Great news is you are doing amazing, you are living your best life all while encouraging and inspiring others to live their best lives as well!

    You have the power to change the world. Speak positive things into existence. Focus on what is important, re-prioritize. Life is way too short to get so caught up in something that really isn’t real!

    The great news is that you are making a difference. You are more than sales, you are more than a swipe up feature, you are more than a comment, you are more than a like.

    Your greatest power is you. Don’t ever forget it!

    Now, let’s have a great week!

    MY MISS LOLA OBSESSION

    Hey everybody!!! You guys requested a in-depth Blog on Miss Lola, so here it is! Yay!!

    I recently found out about Miss Lola and I am obsessed! This post is not sponsored but they were so kind to give me my very own code ERIXOXO so you all can save some money!

    Where do I begin?! Miss Lola has everything from shoes, bags, clothing, and accessories! I am going to talk about each of the items that were gifted to me and why I love them so much!

    Espadrille Galore

    I have three espadrilles and they ALL are amazing quality, I have been wearing them constantly since receiving them and have had no problems! The comfort of all their shoes is out of this world girl! Highly recommend!

    First up we have these designer inspired wedge espadrilles! I LOVE them! I did size up on all three of these shoes because espadrilles run small for me no matter what brand or store I get them from!

    The plastic is stretchy and soft, so it makes these shoes wide foot friendly! Yaaaas!! I love these so much and I have been reaching for them way more than my Steve Madden ones, and y’all know I love my Steve Madden haha!

    While we are at it, I want to mention this beautiful snakeskin clutch from Miss Lola! Girrrllll, the quality and weight of this beauty is out of this world!!! I love carrying it because it feels so luxurious! You can add the chain on like I did in the picture above, and wear it cross body or on your shoulder. Or, you can carry it like a clutch for a more casual chic vibe! I love the gold knob, honestly I love everything about this clutch!

    Next we have these gorgeous scalloped espadrilles! If I was a shoe, I would be these shoes! I love the nude shade of brown that they are, I love that they are platform espadrilles and I love love love the scalloped trim!

    These are probably my favorite of the three, honestly I can go on and on but just go go go RUN and go buy these! They are so versatile and so comfy!

    Tie Dye Live

    First up we have this gorgeous tye dye maxi dress! It is seriously so comfortable, so stretchy, and so buttery soft! I love how versatile this piece is, you can wear it to the beach, the pool and of course shopping with the girls! So figure flattering and so chic! I get so many compliments when wearing this piece and the color alone is everything!

    Golden Romance

    You guys! This yellow dress is everything! If you recall, last time I had this same dress but in red, it did not disappoint and neither did this color!!! If you don’t get any other piece, please get this one!!! I LOVE the lace sleeve detail, the shape of the dress overall is so figure flattering, and it looks more expensive than it actually is! This dress is definitely one of the most comfiest yet sexiest dresses I own!

    Peek-a-boo Romper

    All I can say to this beautiful piece is YES, YES, YES!! So casual, yet so chic and so comfy!!! This is another versatile piece and you can really dress it up or down depending on the occasion! I love the ruffle detail and the peek-a-boo cut out in the back! (Make sure to watch my YouTube video to see it in action!) To dress this romper down I would wear sandals and a simple clutch with a cute pair of sunnies! To dress it up you can wear a pair of chunky heels or even wedge espadrilles and a pop of color clutch! The possibilities are endless!

    The Vacay Essential

    Lastly we have this beautiful palm and floral romper! It is so lightweight and honestly a summer staple! Can we just take a minute to appreciate that this romper has pockets!! Yesssss! Oh and I love the color it just pops! Just like the Peek-a-boo romper, this one can be dressed up or down! This piece is the statement so whichever way you choose to style it, I would pair it with gold accessories to really bring the color out!

    This post is sponsored by Asoph.

    Hey Everybody! I have some really beautiful pieces to share with you from Asoph! Don’t forget to use my code: eri25 to save!

    I would like to start off by telling you guys how much this particular campaign meant to me. It reminded me of self-love, it reminded me why I started Eri’s Lane in the first place.

    When all these beautiful pieces were delivered I was so excited, I dug right in and tried them all on with no makeup on. When I looked in the mirror I felt EXTRA beautiful. I didn’t feel the need and didn’t have the want to put on my hair extensions or put any makeup on.

    These pieces just felt right on my body, they complimented me perfectly. Thank you Asoph for reminding me that beauty comes from within! Thank you Asoph for creating clothes for us curvy girls to rock, because yes we are curvy, yes we are beautiful, and yes we deserve to look and feel like Queens!

    With that being said, Asoph came through (per usual) so let’s dig in!

    This off the shoulder white dress was simply perfection!! I love the elegant, causal, but chic vibes it gives off! The off the shoulder detail gives it a bit of sass, and flirty look, while the button down detail and the white color gives it a more innocent, natural vibe!

    I kept it so simple with all of these looks because I really wanted the focus to be on natural beauty and I love how the dresses complimented and brought out my natural beauty so well!

    This mixed print leopard and floral romper is everything! It is so lightweight, comfy and has a little bit of stretch!

    I love that you can dress it up by adding heels, or you can dress it down by adding a cute pair of neutral sandals!

    The romper is the statement piece so I would keep hair, accessories and jewelry simple but cute!

    Omg!!! This coral colored off the shoulder sun dress is everything!!! I love the curved hem, I love the color, I love the bell sleeves! So chic and so stunning! This dress is so breathable and effortlessly beautiful!

    You can use it as a swimsuit cover up, or even to go out with your spouse or friends and family!

    I kept it simple by adding a pair of gold sandals, put my hair in a bun and I was ready to go!!

    Lastly we have this beautiful red flared hem dress! PLEASE do yourself the favor and get this dress! I love the lace sleeves you guys!!! Seriously I am obsessed! This dress is out of this world comfortable, has amazing stretch and is so figure flattering!

    You could wear this beauty to a wedding, to your wedding reception, downtown, and yes on a date and to dinner of course!

    I loved all of these pieces, I really cannot pick a favorite!!! Which one was your favorite?! Don’t forget to tag me in your beautiful pictures! I can’t wait to see you rock them!

    Going Outside of My Comfort Zone

    UnitedFront

    Hey Everybody! How are we feeling today?! This is an extra special post for me so even though it’s a long one, hang in there with me!

    I absolutely love the owner and what her boutique stands for, just read for yourself! “UnitedFront is the contemporary dress boutique for the socially active woman that’s going places and wants to look her best when she gets there… The dresses the girl on the go adorns her silhouette with should empower her and be worthy of being worn. Her dress often says what she thinks before her voice is ever heard and conveys her strength and individuality.”

    Just reading the mission statement alone just makes you want to shop with them right?!

    Some Background

    As always, I’m going to honest with you guys, this outfit is completely out of my comfort zone… and I. Love. It! This look (denim dress, earrings, and bag) is from UnitedFront, make sure to check them out, you will definitely find yourself buying one two… okay let’s be real multiple items that you will want to add to your closet!

    Today’s post is a little longer than usual because I wanted to dig a little deeper and remind you all of the importance of staying true to yourself, and stepping outside of your comfort zone.

    Growing up my Mom always encouraged me to express my creativity, and for me that was through fashion. She would say, “What are you scared of? Don’t be scared, you look beautiful, you are beautiful.” She was always right of course but for so long I felt like because of my size I couldn’t and I shouldn’t wear certain things.

    Subconsciously I knew I wouldn’t look bad, I just cared about what people would say. What a silly reason right?! Who cares what people think! Who cares what people say! You do what makes you happy, you wear what makes you happy and comfortable!

    I remember when my whole perspective changed… It wasn’t until middle school during spirit week, a week I will never forget. This particular day during spirit week had the theme of the 80’s and of course leg warmers, tights, headbands, and anything I could get my hands on that was neon colored, was on my list!

    I got dressed, got in the car with my Mom and headed to school. Once we got to the “drop off zone” at my school, I froze because in that moment I didn’t feel comfortable, I wanted to go back home and change.

    I don’t remember my Mom’s exact words, but I do remember how she made me feel, she encouraged me to walk with my head high and work my outfit! That is exactly what I did, and guess what?! Everyone loved my outfit…The outfit that was completely out of my comfort zone!

    The moral of this story is whatever you do, go with your heart, don’t allow people and their opinions to hold you back. Your only limit is yourself, wear what you want, dress how you want, live how you want. Life is too short to care about anything and anyone who is not helping you or making you happy!

    The Outfit

    I always see these beautiful dresses on smaller women, but I still decided to put it on my curvy body, I added a belt to define my small waist, brought out my curves and rocked it!

    Now, let’s get into the details! I am wearing a size 2x and I would say it runs true to size! I am very happy to say that this dress IS big arm friendly, YAY, and it has two pockets! How amazing is that?! Love this dress, and it is definitely one of my new faves, so comfy and so chic!

    These beautiful hoop earrings and this trendy basket bag are the perfect accessories for summer! Often it’s not about the clothes you are wearing, but how you wear them, meaning what you choose to accessorize your clothes with generally makes or breaks the look!

    The hoop earrings can and will take a basic white tee and jeans to a whole new level, while this beautiful trendy white bag adds “vacay vibes” to any pair of shorts, a romper or even a beautiful maxi dress!

    All three pieces are definitely must-have essentials to get your closet ready for the summer! So, how will you style these pieces?

    Thank you for joining me today, I really appreciate your love and support, make sure to check out UnitedFront and until next time,

    Bye Beautiful!

    A Fresh Start

    My very first blog post on my new site!!! I must say I’m feeling a whirlwind of emotions, but at least they are all positive ones!

    This is a new start… a fresh start and honestly it’s long overdue and needed!

    I learned so much from creating my last site, and although it was short lived, it taught me so many lessons.

    Although I liked the way my previous blog looked, I didn’t enjoy the way it functioned. It just didn’t work for me. The key to success (for me at least) is not looking good, but actually being good.

    So fast forward to the present day, here I am starting over, and that’s okay, no ones perfect, nothing’s perfect. We live and we learn and that’s the beauty of life!

    So cheers to the new blog! I love it so much already, just working on the look now! Thank you so much for staying patient with me! I appreciate you all so much!
