Distressed White Denim: Weekend Style

Hey guys,

I’ve been away on vacation for the last two weeks and I swear upon coming back, I instantly felt like I needed a vacation from my vacation (insert tired emoji face here). I had an absolutely amazing time with my family in Atlanta and then at Martha’s Vineyard so the fatigue is totally worth it!

Today I’m wearing this distressed white denim look. I don’t know who decided to call off the ban of wearing white after the Labor Day holiday but I surely appreciate it. White is one of those colors that always look fantastic on, is a great baseline for any and every other pop of color and looks absolutely stunning against any complexion.  Might be something to the reason why a lot of men enjoy wearing a crisp white tee with their denim and sneakers. These fringe heels seem to be getting a lot of wear over the summer as well, I definitely need to get the flats but haven’t decided on what color I should get…decisions, decisions! The summer seems to be passing me by pretty quickly! I walked into Walmart yesterday and they had the nerve to already have Back to School supplies up. WTF! Can they let me live! LOL  I hope you guys have an amazing week!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Floral Skirt + Barcelona Cami : Weekend Style

Hey guys,

It’s crazy how poised bloggers look no matter what kind of weather they are taking pics in; from winter snow to the hottest of hot! On the day I shot this look, the weather was particular hot and steamy.  The only good thing is that it wasn’t humid. This beautiful floral midi skirt and barcelona cami is the perfect look for attendance to a summer wedding, a mid day date or lunch at a trendy restaurant with your friends. I got the skirt from Asos some time back and it’s been a while since I wore it. This oversized Zara clutch is a fun option, but can easily be replaced by something smaller and in a neutral tone as well.

The weekend was filled with good vibes. I attended a date night event at this is extravagant residence in SouthWest Ranches.  It was super fun and a chance to be around some friends I haven’t hung out with in a while. The event ended early enough for us to come home, freshen up and change clothes and head out to a night club for drinks and dancing. We crashed and burned around 3 a.m. woke up the next day and had brunch at Latitudes, a nice beach front restaurant. I couldn’t ask for more, except for my second job to kind of do itself so I can relax instead on Sunday evening. This is the first weekend of my summer vacation, and it definitely got off to a great start! Hope your weekend was amazing. Have an awesome week guys!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Off Shoulder Dress : Weekend Style Inspo

Hey guys,

The off shoulder trend is HOT for this season, but really when have we ever stopped wearing it? On those unbearably hot days, we often reach for the pieces that show some skin and this trend does just that, while keeping it classy. This season I’ve seen a lot of off shoulder tops and dresses with a twist, be it bowed or cap sleeves, the floral or striped designs, or bold and beautiful colors..it seems to me that this trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! What do you think?  This cotton white number from Asos is perfect for the summer time which is rapidly approaching. Something about white, it’s such a beautiful neutral that transitions across seasons. Totally in love with this look! Thanks to Jewel for being gracious enough to take these shots while on her mini vacay to FL. Then again, we all know how it goes down when bloggers get together! LOL

This was a low-key weekend for me, I barely budged after coming home from work Friday. Except for Mother’s Day, I had to pay my Queen homage! Hope you queens who are also moms enjoyed your day, and that your loved ones put a smile on your face and hearts. Enjoy your week friends!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Floral Romper + Fringe : Spring Style

Hi Friends,

This floral romper I found at Forever 21 is the BUSINESS! I absolutely love it. My obsession with rompers are so real. Are they not the cutest things you can wear for the spring and summer? Literally no fuss. Just throw on your favorite pair of shoes and accessories and go. It’s just that simple. You can throw a blazer over them if you like or wear them with a maxi cardi and they still look ridiculously chic. You can throw a skirt of any length over them and make them a top, or rock your favorite pair of distressed denim jeans over them as well. There aren’t too many pieces in your closet that is as versatile as a romper. Who ever thought wearing a one piece adult onesie would be so POSH 🙂

This weekend was filled with good times. Our California squad was back together once again with Jewel in town. My taste buds are still singing from all the wonderful food we have eaten and I’m sure I’m left with a nice pre summer glow from the beach. Now it’s back to the work week. Only 25 days left until my summer vacation officially begins. Have a great week!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
