    Hey Babes!

    I love to wear ponchos every season, they're comfy and add interest and dimension to any outfit, making it a fun piece to work with. This look features my summer poncho which is one of my favorite summer pieces because of the color and print combination. It also has small perforated holes all throughout, making it breathable and more comfortable to wear this time of year. I decided to pair it with a pair of white color blocked shorts, which tied in with the black and white found within the print. For the shoes, I selected a purple pair to pull out the color found within the poncho, since the dominant color of the piece is pink. 

    As I mentioned earlier, ponchos are a favorite of mine because the provides physical comfort, but emotional as well! With a poncho, it's easier to conceal the aftermath of a hefty meal, while remaining chic and secure, hehe! 

    Thank so much for stopping by and I hope your day is amazing!

    Happy Monday!

    I hope you all had an awesome weekend! To start of your week, I'm sharing this look that features an extremely versatile piece, a fitted lace dress. I've worn this dress twice on the blog and this is the casual option (the other styles can be found here here). I'm all in favor for pieces that can help make my life easier by providing more outfit options and I'm sure you are too! If you have a favorite lace dress in your closet, even if it's in a more formal color like black, try pairing it with a denim vest or jacket and wedges or even mules; it will instantly dress down the lace, while adding texture and interest to a simple look. 

    I hope this post gave you some ideas for working with your favorite lace dress. You can also use these tips when working with a lace skirt as well. To maintain that dress down feel, I'd suggest wearing a simple tank or white tee for a causal chic vibe ;)

    Happy Friday!

    It's finally the weekend, woohoo! I'm so ready to relax tomorrow and perhaps lounge at the beach because this week has been a whirlwind to say the least! Anyway, this look is perfect for a relaxed weekend. It's simple and bold at the same time. I love when my accessories and printed pieces work together to create a cohesive flow that gives the perception of me really trying, when in reality I didn't, haha! That's the fun part of boho and Indie inspired outfits; the prints and accessories do the talking. With that said, printed pants are not to be avoided because they create interest and make the whole process of finishing the look that much easier, since you can simply pull colors out of the print for your top and call it a day OR opt for white, which is always safe. Add a necklace to balance out the print on the bottom, essentially creating interest from top to bottom, which is more eye appealing. Then, layer on those treasured arm candies and voilà, you're look is done!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend and feel free to share your plans in the comment's section!

  • The BEST Colors to Wear for Your Skin Color on the Beach!

    07. 30. 15.

     

    Hey Babes, 

    I've been really taking advantage of these dog days of summer by going to the beach; I love being by the ocean and feeling the sand in between my toes! I also love wearing different bathing suits and watching what others are wearing for some inspiration. With watching, I've come to discover that many girls are either shying away from colors all together, which would look phenomenal on them or wearing shades that don't necessarily flatter their beautiful complexions best. Now of course I can't grab each girl and share my thoughts, but I could certainly do that here! Above are some ideas of what I'd suggest and know would look great on you while you lounge at the beach or pool, I hope you like!

    PS: For bathing suit styles that would look best on your body shape, watch my video on selecting the best bathing suits for your body shape here

    As always, thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

  • Touches of Chambray

    07. 29. 15.

     

    SHOP THE POST

    TANK: Cynthia Rowley from Marshalls (similar style on sale here) // PANTS: From Marshalls (similar style on sale here) // PURSE: Marc Jacobs from Nordstrom Rack (similar style on sale here) // SHOES: LuLu*s (here)


    Hey Beauties,

    Today's look is a perfect summer outfit, since it's light and minimal in style, a perfect no fuss option! I love this tank because it has a touch of chambray on the shoulders and neckline, adding a little texture and print to a simple and casual look. I've worn it in so many ways, with jeans, leggings, and shorts, but this time around, I wanted to wear it with a pair of white pants and these chambray heels for a nice fresh summery pairing. I love how the chambray is featured on both the top of my outfit and the bottom, creating a bit of cohesiveness and maintaining interest to the overall look. I added a bubblegum pink purse to pull out the pink in my heels and to of course add some color. 

    One thing to keep in mind when wearing white is that it highlights the area in which it's worn. So, if you're insecure about a certain area of your body, I wouldn't advise to wear it there, as it will then become the focal point. I do suggest wearing it in a place that you feel most confident! Another thing to consider is that just as black makes us look thinner, white tends to make us appear heavier, since it reflects light. This doesn't mean that you can't wear it on your fuller areas which you love, it just means that you may want to consider the fit of the piece and balance out your entire outfit with other pieces that will also captivate the eye ;) 

    So what do you think of this look? Are you loving white this summer, too?!
