    Happy Friday my lovelies,

    It's finally the weekend, yay! I generally like to keep it pretty simple during the day on weekends by opting for comfortable pairings that will have me looking and feeling stylish, while comfortable at the same time; I mean the weekends are for relaxing, right?! This means that sometimes, especially during the summer, I like to give my feet a break from heels. As much as I love them, I must admit it's always more comfy to throw on a nice pair of flats or boat shoes! 

    Nothing says weekend casual like a white tank and blue jeans! The key, I feel, to creating a comfy-chic look without putting too much effort, while looking like you did, is to add some statement pieces and print and/or color into the mix. These three things can make a world of a difference between boring casual and chic casual and it'll look like you tried much harder than you did; again, it's the weekend, sometimes you just want to get dressed and get going with the fun plans you've made! 

    Hopefully you found this post helpful and that it gave you an idea on what to wear this weekend, which I hope you all enjoy! As always, thanks so much for stopping by :)

  • Now, This Isn't Good-bye Just Yet!

    08. 27. 15.

    Happy Thursday beauties,

    As we slowly begin to walk away from summer and into fall, which is always bitter-sweet, we can begin to feel a little bummed about the thought of not being able to wear some of our favorite summer pieces. You know, the one's we threw on when it was too hot to conceptualize an outfit?! Well, I have some good news, you don't have to part with your favorites just yet! There are some ways that we can really extend the use out of those pieces into fall, by expanding our imaginations when it comes to layering, a word synonymous to fall fashion. This post will hopefully give you some ideas on how you could wear that summer fave a tad longer :) Oh, and do let me know in the comment's section what's YOUR most worn summer item!

    Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful day :)


    XxO,

  • Chip of the Old (Color) Block

    BLOUSE: Marshalls (similar style on sale here )  // JEGGINGS: Express (similar style on sale here)  // FRINGE BRACELET: c/o Kendra Scott (on sale here)  // HEELS: Ralph Lauren from Marshalls (similar style here


    Happy Hump Day!

    There's nothing like a color block mid-week pick me up! Well, as you know, I love wearing tons of color any day of the week, but it's even better when I wear it mid-week, since it amps me up for the weekend. I love to cherish the moments and take advantage of 'real time', but I really do look forward to the weekends, since that's when Eddie and I do more things together, so there's a lot to look forward to :) I challenge you to wear a hint of color or if you're feeling more daring, color block, on days that you're feeling down, it's raining or it's Wednesday, haha! I'm certain you'll feel enthused and as though you can conquer the world, well, at least your day ;)

    PS: This specific color combination would look amazing on every skin-tone, so please don't feel as though you can't pull it off. I assure YOU CAN! If the three punches of color are a little intimidating for you, try combining two of them (it doesn't matter which of the two, they all look fantastic together) and add in a neutral (I'd suggest leopard or nude) to help tone down the look, while still embracing some color!

    As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is as fabulous as YOU!

  • Clutches I'm Craving & Loving, Literally!

    08. 25. 15.

    SHOP THE SET

    Happy Tuesday beauties,

    I wanted to share some clutches that I've been loving and craving (literally) with all of you! If there's one thing I love when it comes to purses, is the funkier the better! I really love clutches that offer punches of color, print and that are just overall interesting and fun and these are all of the above! What sparked this post was that a few days ago, I spotted a really, really, cute chocolate bar clutch by Kate Spade at Nordstrom Rack on sale, but was bummed because it had some tears on the chocolate rapper on the front of the purse and it was the last one! So the wish list begins now, haha! Which is your fave?! 

    Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is awesome!

     

    XxO,

  • Teal & Beige

    BLOUSE: Express (similar style here)  //  SKIRT: H&M (similar style on sale here)  //  NECKLACE: c/o Anitanja (similar style from her collection here)  //  BELT: Thrifted (similar style here)  //  SUNGLASSES: Salvatore Ferragamo (similar style here)  //  PURSE: Tory Burch (similar style here// SUEDE HEELS: Nine West (similar style here)


    Happy Monday beautiful friends!

    One of my favorite color combinations as we begin to slowly transition to fall is teal and beige. I feel that the darker shade of green, with its rich, jewel-like tone exudes fall, while the beige keeps things neutral and softer, allowing summer to linger a little longer in the pairing. I wanted to throw in a little print, so I opted for the sophisticated leopard, in my belt and reached for gold jewelry, which created a nice exuberant feel to the overall look. Plus, I absolutely loved how the cocoa inspired details on the necklace mimicked the leopard spots on the belt, giving the outfit a nice, clean and stylish cohesive flow. 

    I just wanted to quickly mention how much rich colors, such as teal, look phenomenal on neutral and cool skin tones (and if you're a red-head, whoa!). If you are either of these two, I highly suggest you add them to your wardrobe or pull them out of your closets more often; they give the skin a nice sun-kissed glow ;)

    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and have a beautiful day :)


    XxO,

    Jalisa
