Polka Dot Dress

I’ve never been a huge fan of polka dots but this trend is not going away anytime soon!  I recently purchased this adorable dress from Zara.   It was such a good find for under $20!  Not only am I fan of the silhouette of the dress but the puffy sleeves adds to it! IMG_0165

I paired the dress with black booties also from Zara for only $29.99!  I fell in love with these ruffled ankle boots.  To add a little color, the red hat was the icing on the cake along with the two necklaces from H&M.

This is my second polka dot item purchased and I would definitely be willing to purchase more.  Will you be wearing polka dots this spring???

Cozy Cardigans & Sweaters

It’s winter time and it is very COLD in most places (outside of Florida)! 🙂

While putting together a few looks from a local boutique in Orland – Stitch and Arrow, I came across a few sweaters and cardigans that would be sure to warm you up this winter.

This cardigan below gives me an “Aztec” feel – full of color and oh so comfortable.  I paired with a basic T-shirt, Jeans and boots.  I love the length of the cardigan, it fits perfect!

Holidays are here and it’s always fun to do something a little different with a cozy sweater!  Don’t be afraid to dress up a sweater with a few accessories.  It’s so easy to be cute yet warm in this adorable sweater.

(G)OLD & The Beautiful!

Gold isn’t the easiest color to wear!  Sometimes the color can be flattering in evening wear, accessories, pair of heels and other times just a little tacky.

I came across these shimmery gold “genie” style pants from Zara for only $20 and didn’t exactly know how to style them.  They actually sat in my closet for months before I gained enough “courage” to wear these cuties. LoL.

I decided to pair them with a pair of cute gold heels from Zara (click link to view).  Gold heels can definitely add a little pop to any outfit!  These are a great deal, only $49.90!  The shirt is from Forever21 – my go to for simple cute shirts.

How would you style these lovely pants?

Leather. Bag. Perfection.

A few months ago, leather bag company Mahi Leather reached out to do a post about one of their leather bags of my choice.  I was really excited because I’ve never heard of the company and I’m always looking for a great “everyday” bag.

With that said, I was impressed by the leather quality of the bag.  I wanted to wear the bag for a few months prior to doing a post to really understand the quality of the tote.  The leather is durable, I carry it almost everyday and it compliments any outfit that I’m wearing.

I personally selected The Classic Tote in vintage brown.  The bag is priced at $131.32 – I think it’s an affordable price for a bag that you will wear everyday but it’s depends on your personal budget.

Overall, I’m extremely satisfied with my beautiful tote. Mahi Leather has so many different bag options – totes, duffles, satchels and more!  Check out the website!

What’s the Perfect Working Bag?

Like most women, I’m constantly balancing work, gym, hobbies and so many other things we have going.  I always find myself looking for the perfect go to bag to help balance everything.

Black leather bags have always been my favorite and I see most many women carry them as well. I started to think why leather? Well, it’s durable, timeless and most importantly can be carried on a day to day without ruining the quality!  With so many styles and variations, a nice leather bag can complete your outfit and give so much confidence.  My personal favorite is the classic tote.

For the past month, I’ve carried this black  Women’s Work Tote Handbag by Merona from Target which I absolutely love.  It’s big enough to fit my laptop which is my favorite but I can also carry my makeup case and a pair of flats for those long days!  🙂

Old Scarf? New Look?

Do you have any old scarves in a drawer somewhere?  Well, I’m certainly about recycling old items and making them useful for new looks!

I was getting ready to go out and couldn’t figure out anything to do with my hair.  It’s summer, humid and rainy here in Florida and my hair was not cooperating.  Do you ladies ever have those days?

I started to go through my “don’t know what do with this” drawer and came across this old scarf that I had from years ago and decided to refurbish into a head band.  I actually loved the way it looked and wanted to share with you!

IMG_2312

Headbands have definitely been a trend for the past few years – dressy, casual and even for working out.  Celebrities are even wearing head bands to award shows!  Festival season is around the corner ladies – don’t be afraid to throw on a cute headband!  🙂
