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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

Happy Friday my lovely friends! 

I've spoken about my love for monochromatic looks so many times and the flattering effects they can have in both slimming and elongating the body. I've also shared many tips on how to bring them to life by adding and mixing up the details, since they can easily fall flat on the body. Most of the times when I wear them, I'll throw in a hint of another color or a neutral to break things up a bit.

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

For the past several weeks, I've been seeing so many cute button detailed pieces at some of my favorite stores and on my Instagram feed. It's mostly in a vertical design on tops, dresses and skirts, which makes for such a flattering detail, since it downward, visually slimming and elongating the body. The buttons are also quite notable either in a larger size or a sharp color contrast to the piece itself.

Happy Tuesday friends!

If you follow me on Instagram (you totally should ;) and happened to watch my IG story on my Sephora sale haul, then you'd remember me sharing this Caudalíe Deep Cleansing Exfoliator. I was in need of a new exfoliator because the one I'd been using wasn't doing the job for me. I have combination/oily skin with larger pores, so I need an exfoliator that's gentle, yet still abrasive enough to clean everything out and help minimize my large pores. 

Today I want to share what my experience has been since using it for the past month or so, as promised.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

On Friday, we talked about how lace is a great fabric for summer nights especially. If you missed that post, you can give it a read here!

Today, we'll be discussing yet another fabric that's ideal for the warmer months, particularly when going the more dressy route for either work or to dress up a denim look and that's satin. 

It's a fabric that's been trending for quite a while, mainly since the 90s comeback began, as well as the pajama trend. Many luxe pajamas are done in this fabric pointing to the reason as to why it's great for the summer, it's cool and comfortable. The soft texture brushes the skin in a way that's comfortable, not to mention it looks luxe. I also love the fluid effect it has when worn in a loose, flowy fit, like the shirt I'm wearing.

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

The temperatures are beginning to rise and it's feeling more like summer and I couldn't be happier! I love being outdoors and summer date nights are my favorite; I love dining outside when possible. Though our summer dates will be looking a lot different these days with little miss Aviah, but we don't mind at all! Even though the little one will be tagging along for our evening dates, that doesn't mean that I'll be forgoing my dressed up chic outfits entirely. Since we'll be cutting the nights short, wearing my heels and impractical lace tops is totally doable ;)
