Ruffled Shorts + White Button Down Shirt

Happy Memorial Day!

I took a trip to Key West this holiday weekend and these ruffled shorts from Zara paired with a crisp white button down shirt was perfect for the occasion.  Key West is such a picturesque and quaint place with the most chill and welcoming population of people, it truly is a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of big city living here in Miami et al.  When we first arrived, the streets seemed to be pretty quiet and sparse with people. We quickly learned from our bartender at Margaritaville that everyone was at the beach, but the moment the sun started to set, they’d be out in full swing. He was so correct! Out of no where it seemed like the streets started to spill over with people, the whole atmosphere changed and became charged with energy, and excitement. It was a bit contagious. I swear I never tire of Key West, no matter how many times I go, simply because of the good vibes.  It was a very relaxing stay and that’s exactly what the doctor ordered!

I did get my party fun in on Friday evening when we went to Happy Hour in Pembroke Pines. The DJ was amazing and the drinks were flowing. I’m a light weight, so by the time I got to the bottom of drink #1 I was already feeling pretty good! LOL. Sunday was BBQ time with several friends. Not a bad three-day weekend at all. Now I’m ready to go back into bum mode. Only 8 more days to go! Have a great week dolls!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

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 by..it 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!
