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.

(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?

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?

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!  🙂

Any suggestions Ladies?  What are the Best Tote Bags for work?

Check out a few other places with great handbags!

Is Wearing All Black in the Summer OK?

Yes ladies, I know it’s hot in the summer!  Black is my favorite color to wear and I tend to gravitate towards items that are black when I’m shopping…black dress is #1!   Wearing black makes me feel confident, it’s sleek and sophisticated.

In my opinion, fashion is about wearing what you want when you want.  I’ve made the decision to wear black in the summer!

IMG_2144blk

I came across the amazing jumpsuit from Zara that I absolutely loved!  I paired it with a white heel from Zara and added a black belt to it as well.  The jumpsuit is VERY flared and almost to the point where I have to watch my step! LoL

IMG_2113blk Ladies, will you be wearing all black this summer?
