Midi Skirt & Zippered Denim

Happy Hump Day,

The hustle and bustle of the Thanksgiving travel, and shopping season are upon us. Folks are everywhere on our S. Florida streets. I was just happy to head straight home from work and even had the chance to relax a bit and catch up on some of my shows. So today, I’m sharing two more looks whose pics I overall wasn’t feeling. As you can see I’m having one of those weeks picture wise. LOL! I’m feeling what I’m wearing, but I’m not feeling the camera being in my face and posing LOL.

In the first look, I’m wearing a tee I purchased in support of a Natural Hair company. I love rocking tees with quirky or clever sayings as well as anything focused on natural hair. The second look is my favorite of the two because I really like how pulled together monochromatic looks are. The zippered denim is one of my favorites of the several pairs of black denim I own.  I think I”ll rock this look next time with some leopard heels and matching clutch. For the fall I can also see wearing these jeans with a cute poncho and booties. The possibilities are endless when you are trying to pair black denim.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your week friends!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Happy Wednesday!

Just like that it’s July 1st! Can someone please tell summer to slow down, please and thank you! You may remember this skirt from the time I wore it to my friends baby shower here. I got the opportunity to wear it to work as well by pairing it with a white button down.  I really love the fit of this pencil skirt and how you can decide on the amount of leg you want to show by adjusting the zipper. I’m sad it has sold out!  I wish it came in other colors as well. I’d love it in a white or yellow 🙂

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Happy Midweek!

I can’t tell you how many times I put items in my virtual shopping cart in the last couple of days only to hit the X on the tab and log off. LOL. Either  I just wasn’t feeling that passionate about any one item or I was just being cheap, who knows! *Shrugs*  🙂

Today I’m rocking another pair of ankle pants this time from J.Crew. I absolutely love this pair because green is one of my favorite colors. I really love the way it pops against my complexion. This green portofino is literally my first one from Express. I have since added a second one to my wardrobe but I will never be able to compete with a few of you lovelies (namely Rachelle, Gina, Denise and Caryl <3 )!  You ladies do however inspire me tremendously so I do hope you like this choice of color!  Have a great hump day friends!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Pumps & Push-Ups Boutique

Happy Hump Day Friends!

I love Erica & Brooke of Pumps & Push Ups, and have been following their blog for a pretty long time. I can totally relate to the fashion and healthy lifestyle aspects of it so you can imagine how excited I was when they presented me with the opportunity to style something from their Pumps & Push Ups: The Collection online boutique. I chose the gorgeous Everly: Made For You Midi Skirt, and I must say, it is as beautiful in person as it was on the site. The material was just the right amount of heavy so that you can’t see through the skirt but had enough flow and movement for the upcoming spring months. The pleated front caught my eye and definitely added a touch of chic to this piece.  I can certainly pair it with a variety of tops from camis, box tops, to sweaters and everything in between.  Today I decided to rock it with a pin stripe button down shirt and chunky necklace. I undid all but two buttons on the shirt so I can sport a tank underneath. I really like the finished product! What do you think? Until next time dolls…Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

A Floral Chambray Arrangement

Hey Dolls!

Glad you’re paying me a visit today. I’m a bit peeved because I took a bunch of my heels to the cobbler to get the bottoms of the heels recapped and this fool took one my favorite pair of heels and ruined them. It was a gorgeous studded pair I got from Zara and now they are trash. So as a result, I’m on the hunt for another fantastic pair of studded heels. I’m saddened ..may they R.I.P in shoe heaven 🙁

On a positive note, I am totally loving this skirt I got from Asos some time ago. This is the first time I’m wearing it. As usual my chambray top has not failed me! I am absolutely in love with the finished look. The skirt is made of a  material that is pretty thick, yet has enough sway and is perfect for the cool Florida weather we’ve had lately.  There is a fashion mixer going on this Sunday and I’m debating whether I’ll go, I feel like I only have one day off as it is, so I’m a little reluctant to give that up.  If I do go, I’ll have to get off my shopping ban to find something fantastic to rock. Oddly enough, that is yet another reason to stay home. I totally don’t feel like shopping. *stops to take temperature and pat forehead * So whether you make it out this weekend or decide to stay home and kick your feet up, here’s looking forward to the weekend! We’re half-way there 🙂 Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

The Life You Want w/ Oprah

Hi Loves!

The Life You Want Weekend Tour with Oprah was as amazing as I thought it would be. The energy in the American Airlines Area was enough to light up  Times Square. Like I said, I am FANatical about Oprah so the moment she came out on the stage, tears came to my eyes. She just makes me so proud! LOL Her presence is all-consuming, we hung on her every word and fed  on her wisdom, knowledge and life experiences until we emerged full yet hungry for more! She handpicked her Trailblazers and they each delivered equally  awe-inspiring workshops. My take away from the weekend is that I need to be the captain of my fate and control where my ship is going. I cannot let fear of failure or even sometimes fear of success keep me from taking the steps necessary to see my vision to the end. Life leaves no room for us to stand by idly and be spectators rather than active participants. We are all co-creators of our lives! Aside from the all of the outdoor activities in “O-Town” from vendors, to live performances and giveaways, inside the arena we were given workshops, a meditation session with Deepak Chopra and a great 15 minute workout in our seats with Soul Cycle. Here are some of my favorite quotes, and moments from the weekend. It doesn’t do the experience justice but I hope you enjoy all the same. Until next time! Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

This second slide show  features pics of Lady O herself, her best friend CBS morning co-achor Gayle King and her Trailblazers :  Dr. Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Gilbert   (Author of Eat, Pray, Love),  Iyanla Vanzant  (Fix My Life) , and Pastor Rob Bell  (Author of The ZimZum of Love).   I also wanted to show you some audience pics. There were over 10,000 of us! A 10,000 points of lights buzzing with energy and emotion.  Oprah really connected with the audience, you can see her walking through the aisles, simply touching people to show encouragement and actually stopping to read what we wrote when she charged us with something in our workbooks.

This next slide show are just some pics of the area around the arena, in case you’ve never had the pleasure of visiting the home of the Miami Heat and downtown Miami 🙂

Finally, this last slide show features myself, the group of friends that attended with me and a glimpse of the workbook we were given. I wrote all over that thing!
