Crop Top & Tulle Skirt : Weekend Style

Hey friends,

Today’s look is a fun one, it’s been particularly scorching here in South Florida, every day having been in the 90s and it even as high as 95 this weekend. I went for something light and chic in this cute striped crop top and black tulle skirt. My pop of color comes from the Kylie Jenner lip kit shade in 22. I am absolutely in love with this crop top and am sure this one will be making an appearance on the blog a few more times before the year is done. Crop tops  paired with high waist pieces are a God send guys! They allow you to show just a hint of skin without baring too much, not to mention the high waist helps to hide the dreaded bloat! Ugh.

This weekend was a pretty quiet one. I started off having plans but when it came down to it, I just couldn’t seem to part with the comfort of home. I did manage to attend a Natural Hair event with Rachelle but we left not too long after getting there LOL. I got caught up on a few of my TV shows, namely Containment, The Real World and Empire.  It just felt really good to not have an obligation to leave the house. Alas, like every weekend before it, this one zoomed was still Saturday when I started feeling the anxiety of Monday! I swear even though the end of the school year is around the corner, I feel like a giddy kid awaiting Christmas morning to tear open the gifts! All I want to do is start my summer vacation 😉  Hope you guys have an awesome week, only 11 more days of school left for me! Whoo! Hoo!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

****July 14,2015 10:16 p.m. Guys, my dad passed suddenly yesterday. As you can imagine I am trying my best to cope with this tremendous loss along with my family,  so I will be offline for several days. Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you. ****

Hey guys,

Happy Monday friends! Glad you are stopping by 🙂  Hope you had a quiet weekend. Mine was pretty quiet. I returned to the gym after two weeks off due to vacationing and I have to say it took some getting used to.  My trainer kicked my butt and I didn’t miss it at all! As I always say vanity keeps me coming back for more LOL.  I sort of low-key envy folk who are die-hard gym fanatics and love going in. For me, it’s a necessary evil.

So about today’s look, I’ve found myself shopping at Gap and Abecrombie & Fitch lately.  Believe or not, I’ve just recently figure out what size I wear in denim, I’m so used to buying jeans that have sizes 0,2 and 4 on them that I never knew what that translated to when I’m looking at those in the double digits. There’s nothing like a great pair of well-fitting jeans, so now I’m a bit addicted to Gap Jeans, as well as the many cute items they sell online at A&F.  The high waist and crop combo works so well in a lot of different looks. Whether you are talking pants and crops or skirts with crops.  For those of us uncomfortable with baring our tummy’s or just a tad bit conservative, this works pretty well and a flash of tummy is just as sexy! 😉

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
