Stripes + Denim : The Spring Edition

Hey guys,

Today (Sunday)  I woke up to the most beautiful weather here in South Florida, whereas back home in Boston it’s snowing!  Days like this reassure me that this move I made 18 years ago was a good one.  I had an amazing weekend. Spent several hours at the beach with the girls, made a pit stop to Margaritaville that evening, which has only been open for about a year . Finally on Sunday, breakfast at Cracker Barrel and a stroll through the park finished off my weekend. Once I got home it was back to work mode 🙁

It’s Spring, it’s April and we are 40 odd days away from summer vacation here at school. These last days tend to be my favorite. Testing is over and although we are still nervous about how our students fair these are still the best days of the school year..we do a lot of fun project based activities, we have our science fair and our 30 day countdown where each day we have a fun celebratory activity leading towards the last day. Well enough about that…

You never have to look very further than your own closet when transitioning from one season to another. Portofino shirts are a great transition piece as they can be dressed up or down and pair well with several other pieces of clothing no matter the season. The convertible sleeves help on the warmer days and it’s a light weight material. I totally love this casual chic vibe paired with a straw fedora, distressed boyfriend shorts and my trusty white chucks. Have a great work week dolls!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Stripes & Tassels: Meetup Style

Hey guys,

Today’s post is the stripes & tassels look I wore to our blogger meet up in California. You have probably seen the group shot on all of our blogs and social media by now. I gave you tidbits of this meetup in one of my first post back from  vacation. On this day the weather started off gorgeous but the temperature did drop a bit by the end of the evening. Even still, it was such a fun time and we were all in the parking lot afterwards taking outfit pics for our perspective blogs. Here I’m wearing a fairly new addition to my ever-growing portofino collection in stripes. Paired with my now favorite pair of distressed denim and these uber hot heels from Steve Madden. Finally the look is polished with the addition of this moto jacket I found on sale at Express. Moto jackets are both edgy and sexy, I wish it were cool enough weather wise to wear them more here. Sigh.  I hope you guys have an amazing week, see you around the web!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
