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 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 Monday my beautiful friends!

You all know how much I love graphic tees, I've talked about them quite often here on the blog and wore them a lot when I was pregnant especially. I noticed that I often talk about dressing them up with blazers (see examples here & here), but there are definitely other ways you can dress them up, such as with a pencil skirt, as I've done today.  The one I'm wearing is faux leather, so it's not heavy for the summer months, making it a great option for a summer night out when you know it'll be a bit cooler.

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!
As many of you know, if you've been reading the blog for the past couple of months, then you'd know that I've been going through a rough season. I don't want to harp on it, but at the same time, I feel that sometimes it's necessary to get a little real and be open and honest about life. With social media and its perfect looking and carefully curated photos, it can be easy to give the appearance of having a perfect, well put together life either intentionally or unintentionally. As creatives, many of us do so unintentionally because we use the blogosphere as a creative outlet, but sometimes it's necessary to share what we're going through, so that our readers are reminded that we, too, are human and experience hard, trying times as well.

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

Today I'm styling a top I received courtesy of MY Fashion Crate this past weekend. If you watched my unboxing video this past weekend, it's the piece I wasn't sure was a top or dress. Though I loved the print when I first saw it in the package, I honestly wasn't expecting the beautiful ruffle details on the arms, which makes it that much more beautiful! I absolutely love it and might wear it to a baby shower I'll be attending this upcoming weekend.

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

First, I'd like to thank all of you for your incredibly kind words on last week's Mother's Day post. I loved reading how some of you other mamas could relate to what I've experienced so far and the support all of you in general showed. I also want to briefly mention that I'm trying to get pack on track with my regular posting schedule starting next week. I mentioned in this post that we found out my mother-in-law has stage 3 stomach cancer. Since that post, she's been in and out of the hospital (mostly in) and has undergone quite a few surgeries. We've all been taking turns in spending time with her in the hospital, which has of course effected my availability in scheduling content for the blog. Things seem to be somewhat improving, which will enable me to work on content and interact with you all once again.

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

I have to say that for the past few seasons, I've been pretty content with the practicality of the most popular trends we've been seeing. From colors, such as red, yellow and purple dominating the scene, along with transparent clothing/accessories, basket bags and ankle socks, these trends are bold as they are doable for the everyday woman like you and me.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

Since I've been taking the time to spend with loved ones, I haven't had the chance to take outfit photos, but thought it would be a great idea to share some red outfits from the archives in hopes of inspiring you in wearing the trending color. Though purple is the color of year, red is still going strong as a trending color this spring and summer. It's a color that looks great on everyone, as it comes in various shades and hues that are sure to flatter any skin tone, cool, warm or in between. I actually touched upon that exact topic in this blog post back when I was pregnant and rediscovering my love for the color. I'm sure you'll find the tips I've shared in the post helpful!

Happy Friday my lovely friends!

As you all know, red has been one of the hottest color trends since the start of fall and it's still going strong! It's a color that I've reignited my passion for, as a result, and have been seeking out new pieces, since I didn't have much in my wardrobe. I actually styled an outfit almost identical to this one (see here) during the winter, but in that outfit, I styled these houndstooth pants with an oversized red balloon sleeve sweater

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

How was everyone's Easter weekend? We went to church and then for brunch afterwards. I typically make Easter brunch myself, but I needed a break from cooking for a holiday, since I did it for nearly all the ones during the holiday season and it's so much harder to do when you have a little one! I didn't wear this exact outfit, though I did wear the blouse. It may look familiar, if you remember the post I did a few months back, My Recent Purchases and Wish-List. The blouse is, unfortunately, sold out in the blush color, but there's one size left in the black. Perhaps you'd be able to find it stores, if you're interested. It's absolutely beautiful and looks great paired with denim, trousers, and suede, as I've done today.
