Tuxedo

Hey guys,

I feel like I’ve been away for months! Thanks so much to all of you who have left messages of condolences here on the blog and via IG. I truly appreciate your words of support and encouragement. These last few weeks have been very tough on my family and I. My dad has been laid to rest in his beloved country of Haiti and he is surely at peace.  I am trying to get back to somewhat of a normal pattern again but it’s taking me some time so please bear with me if I disappear every now and again. This healing process is something else 🙂

I had this post ready some time ago and since then the dresses I linked have sold out. My apologies, but the look pretty much works with any LBD you have in your closet. Can I tell you how much I love this vest!! It can be worn with so many other pieces, and I really like the touch of dressiness it can add to any look, be it a tee and jeans with heels, a dress or a pair of shorts..heck even some tights. The lapel gives it a tuxedo appeal and I added a couple of brooches to dress it up further. I look forward to visiting my friends out in blog land this week. Take care everyone 🙂

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Never Naked Boutique

Happy Friday friends,

I recently stumbled upon the cutest little online boutique headquartered in Orlando, Florida.   It’s always great to support local entrepreneurs especially when they are women (girl power!). Never Naked Boutique is owned and operated by two sisters, Jocelyn and Chelsea, who actually if you can believe it, have regular corporate America jobs during the week. They both have an eye and passion for fashion so they decided to put their taste and talents into this lovely boutique, ensuring that no matter what we are Never Naked and always stylish and sophisticated 🙂 The site carries everything from clothing to accessories at great prices. Check them out or follow them on social media at:

White with a splash

Hey  guys,

I’ve worn my blazers ( loving this striped one!) quite a bit lately trying to get them out of rotation before the summer; given that it gets so hot and humid from about late May to the end of November and they will no longer be a logical style option.  Today, I paired a white blazer with a polka dot midi skirt and yellow cami to break up the white a bit. I love the crisp look of white! I’m so glad it’s no longer taboo to wear white after labor day, it really has become a year round color option and no matter what you pair it with, it always stands out beautifully. I recently purchased my first pair of white heels and I’m in love! Now I’m on the hunt for a pair of white overalls..let me know if you come across any 🙂

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
