    Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

    I hope you all had a great weekend and are off to a wonderful start to your week so far! 

    It's been rather hot, humid and muggy, so I've been reaching for pieces that are easy to work with and are comfortable for the weather. Dresses and jumpsuits have been on heavy rotations and those in linen and silk fabrics have been my favorite especially. This silk shift dress I'm wearing has been my summer go-to for years now. You may remember it from my How to Wear a Dress as a Blouse With Pantpost from a few years ago. It's one of these timeless classics, even though it's in a bold color. 

  • Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale: Early Access Picks 2018!

    Happy Friday my sweet friends! 

    So, as many of you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (also known as the #Nsale) early access opened to card holders yesterday. I personally don't have the credit card, but have the rewards card, which grants you the same access. If you shop at Nordstrom frequently or even quarterly, I think it's worth considering, especially during this time of year because the most popular items sell out fast! I can't tell you how many times I've kicked myself for not purchasing something I had been eyeing when it was available and ended up hunting it down and refreshing my browser countless times for it to be restocked. Don't go through this! If you love it, know you'll wear it, and it's within your set budget, get it!

  • The Ultimate Denim Guide: Everything You Need to Know from Finding the Best Fit to the Best Details

    Jul 11, 2018

     

    Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends! 

    Denim. Probably the most worn fabric, aside from cotton. It's durable, it can be comfortable and certainly is fashionable and timeless. My most popular blog posts are nearly all on the topic of denim and so, I figured it would be only fitting (you see what I did there?) to compile those posts into one to serve as a denim guide.

    Happy Monday my sweet friends!

    I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine is, thankfully, still going on, since Eddie took the last few days off. We've been together for 13 years, married 9 and he's been off on a Saturday maybe 4 or 5 times. His industry is quite demanding, so whenever he catches a break, I like to take full advantage and annoy him; yes, I'm clingy, haha. We've also been talking advantage of the extra time spent by putting together some of Aviah's birthday gifts that I get to enjoy with her, like this convertible tricycle my cousin gifted her with. How cute?!

    I took much of the week off from the blog, since Aviah's official first birthday was on Monday and the 4th of July was on Wednesday. So today, I want to recap, as promised, how her party went Sunday!

    Happy Friday my sweet friends! 

    How many of you own a LWD (little white dress)? It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I added one to my wardrobe and ever since then, I've been wanting to add in various styles. The only one I had up until this point was an eyelet shift dress, which I absolutely love, but now that I'm a mom, it's not as practical as I'd like it to be. So, I felt it was the best time to search for a new addition and I came across this one that's ticked off all the boxes, making it the perfect summer dress. 

     

  • Details to Look for to Flatter Your Upper Body

    Jun 27, 2018






    Happy Wednesday, my sweet friends!

    Don't you love it when you shop your closet and create an outfit out of pieces you've had forever, but at the same time think, "why didn't I think of this sooner?" Well, that's exactly what happened when creating today's outfit. Would you believe that the top is actually a romper? I styled it a couple of years ago in this post. The shorts I'm wearing today are a little longer and looser than the romper, so I was able to layer comfortably. 

  • A Fool Proof Way to Wear 2018's Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

    Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

    As I'm sure many of you know, ultra violet was declared 2018's color of the year. Now, I must say that I have a love-hate relationship with the color purple. It's not a color I'm particularly fond of, therefore, I'm quite particular with the shades and pieces I choose to add to my wardrobe, which is why I own about a handful, only one of which is in the shade ultra violet...the one I'm wearing today. 

  • Bold Lips for Summer: The Best Shades of Pink & Red for Your Skin Tone

    Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

    I mentioned in a recent blog post how I love what a bold lip can do to the most simple outfit. It can dress it up and make you look more put together without much effort. Not only do I love it for that reason, but I also think it's a great way to add that summer flare to an outfit as well. We often embrace color much more this time of year, so why not smear some color on our lips? It allows for us to go rather simple with the rest of the makeup look as well. What I've been doing lately is skipping the liner and piling on the mascara. It's one less step you have to worry about and we all know that it can take near to forever to try and match each eye when it comes to that wing. Add some blush, a little bit of highlight and you're good to go. 

    Keep reading for my guide on the perfect shades I suggest for you...

  • 9 Straw Bags That Will Instantly Elevate Your Summer Outfit

    Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

    I've really been loving the trends that we've been seeing these past few seasons. I feel, for the most part, they're all pretty practical to wear for the everyday, one of which is the straw bag trend. It's not new to this season though, we first saw it take off last season with the cult favorite (literally) Ark Bag from Cult Gaia. I've said this time and time again that what I love about when a trend takes off, is that we begin seeing different variations of it surface. This essentially allows for everyone to embrace the idea of the trend in a way that reflects or merges well with one's personal style or at least inspires us to think a bit outside of the box with a unique piece that still feels very much like ourselves.
