Spring Is Here!

It’s officially spring!  I wanted to share a quick post of this fabulous dress I purchased from H&M.  It was such a great find for only $30 and the perfect look for brunch with your girlfriends.  The ruffles at the bottom added a little something special to it!

I paired the dress with a satin headband (which I love a good headband!) from H&M and white pumps from Zara.  I added a little jacket from Zara as a little touch.  It matched perfectly with my headband.  🙂

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.

Count the ways…

Oversized shirts are so in style now! I recently purchased an oversized shirt form Zara and I loved it. I wasn’t sure how to wear it and played around with a few different ways.

 I think a common problem with oversized shirts is their “oversized” and sometimes not the most flattering.  I tried the off the shoulder look which I don’t think is practical for me if I’m out and about. 

My favorite was actually rolling up the sleeves which made it a little puffy but I liked it. How are you wearing this trend?!?

Ruffles and Frills

Ruffles and frills is not something new to the fashion world.  This trend has been around since the 16th century but it continues to make a major comeback!

IMG_2841

I’m here for this trend  and these amazing statement pieces.   I decided to pair a striped ruffled shirt from Zara with these distressed jeans also from Zara.   I LOVE these jeans from Zara, amazing details!

I felt the shirt was a little too big although it was a small (no x-small were available) but I tried to make it work. As it gets a little cooler (currently in 90 degree Fl ) , I will try to mix and match with other items.

I’m always looking for the best deal!  This shirt was under $30 and the jeans were $40.

Ladies, how are you rocking this ruffle and frills trend?

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!  🙂

Splurge Alert! Gucci Espadrilles

From time to time ladies we like to splurge on ourselves.  For some that maybe a new outfit, others that may be a trip to the spa or for some that maybe a pair of shoes.  Needless to say, we all work hard and feel like we deserve the items we’ve always wanted.

Earlier this year, I received these Gucci espadrilles as a gift because personally I could never see myself paying retail $450 for a pair of shoes.  For me, that’s just not in the budget!  LoL.

However, I will say this.  These shoes are awesome!  They are super comfortable and casual.  I love the color, it stands out!  They also come in different styles – click here to view additional styles and colors!  I think these are a great alternative to wearing sneakers when you want to be just casual.

Valentines Day is only a few days away ladies!  *Wink Wink*

Check out how I styled these Gucci Espadrilles.

Outfit Details: 

Shirt | Zara – Under $30 (Love this shirt – My absolute favorite! )

Jeans | Zara – Under $40

Shoes | Gucci – $450
