Hello everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you my favorite go to outfit for a casual day. We all know jeans are super versatile and fun, my favorite are these from Cotton On. They are extremely comfortable and form fitting, with  various kinds of styles. I combined them with this cute top from Forever 21 and a pair of white Stan Smiths. I love this outfit because I can still look put together and comfortable while running errands with minimum effort.

Don’t Be Afraid, Be Bold

 When I saw this fiery, floral crop top I just knew I had to have it. Bold and beautiful, this shirt is the perfect statement piece. Worn together with a pair of my favorite jeans and my Sam Edelman sandals I feel chic with a touch of bohemian vibes.

The jeans I am currently wearing are from the store Cotton On. I am obsessed with their bottoms because they are very form fitting. Sometimes it is hard find a pair of jeans that flatter my shape. (Jean shopping is definitely a bit stressful sometimes ;)).

My shoes are a pair of dark orange Sam Edelman sandals which I purchased at Nordstrom Rack. I love detailing, whether it is on shoes or clothes and the diamond-shaped silver pins immediately drew my attention. The fact that they are super soft and comfortable to walk in sealed the deal. They were mine for the taking.  On my wrist I am wearing an assortment of multi-colored bangles. I purchased these at Forever 21. The choker around my neck is a dark brown and was purchased at h&m.

I added a thin gold chain around my waist to give my waist a bit of glitz. 

I would love to hear some of your outfit ideas, comment below and tell me what you think.

Why Every Woman Should Own a Bodysuit

Bodysuits have become a necessity. A versatile item that can be mixed and matched, dressed up or down. 

Here are 3 reasons bodysuits are worth the investment. 

  1. Convenience: A bodysuit can dressed up or down. Wear with a pair of jeans and sandals when going out for lunch as I am here or dress it up with a skirt and pumps for a night out on the town.

2. Sleek and Classy Look: Isn’t it frustrating when you try to maintain a sleek look but your shirt bulges at the waist giving your outfit an unflattering bulky appearance. I love not having to pull my shirt down every five minutes. Put it on, secure the bottom and you are done for the rest of the evening. No need to adjust anything.

3. They aren’t going anywhere anytime soon: Face it, A-line figure looks are always in.  This look is versatile enough to wear anywhere, whether in your home town or if you go traveling out of the country. The best part is, bodysuits do not take much room in your suitcase, because it is so easy to roll them up without the fear of wrinkles.

Oh My, Lace

This season has definitely been on the wet side, and although I love rain, I have been missing the warm sunny days characteristic of California. Somehow I feel most productive when the sun is shining and the birds are singing. Amid that, I miss wearing summer dresses. Having purchased this particular dress (Crisscross-Back Hollow Out Lace Up Dress) a few months ago, I have been dying to wear it out. And finally the day came. It was in the high seventies and I told myself, today is the day.

I purchased this dress on a website called Romwe.com and although I am usually very skeptical about buying clothing online, (I like to try it on first and make sure it fits), I decided to give it a go. To my delight, all the items I purchased were perfect. Not only were they inexpensive, this dress was only US $16.41, but they arrived fairly quickly, within a month. This dress is on the shorter side, but very comfortable with a back zipper and halter spaghetti straps that tie together mid back. The fabric is made out of cotton blends, therefore perfect for warm, summer days.

What caught my attention about this dress was the detailing. The section at the waist is embroidered with pink flowers circling the waist. Along the front and the back of the dress the flowers are intricately woven on, portraying a very soft and feminine look. The dress is a pastel pink and I wasn’t sure if it would stay warm for the duration of the day, so I layered it with my washed out YMI denim jacket. For shoes, I wore a pair of grey suede Via Spiga sandals (www.viaspiga.com).  I decided to keep it simple with accessories, wearing a pair of golden hoop earrings with pastel beads attached to them, and a light-colored bracelet, both of which I purchased at Claire’s (www.claires.com), an accessory store usually found in shopping malls here in California.

I highly recommend Romwe.com for cute, well made pieces. Let me know what favorite online stores you have in the comments below! I would love to chat. Have a lovely weekend! XOXOXOXOXOXO
