Black Cutoffs + Sleeveless Duster: Weekend Style

Hey guys,

So let’s talk about cutoff shorts, they seem to be even more popular this season and they’ve gotten even shorter. What we used to call Daisy Dukes has nothing on these denim “panties”.  They do however, have an appeal don’t they?  Not only are they majorly cute but add some rips and shreds and I couldn’t resist stocking a few in my closet.  For those of us who are a bit self conscious of showing too much skin, you can offset this by wearing a long duster, cardigan, blazer, etc. All look just as stunning with a much like these black cutoffs I’m wearing today and some killer heels.   No better way to make us short girls look like we have legs for days!

Happy belated Father’s Day to all the wonderful men in your lives!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

#SeeSummerBetter with Warby Parker

Hey Friends!

Today I am excited to partner with Warby Parker an eyeglass company for their #SEESUMMERBETTER campaign.  Their sunglasses start at just $95 and include free shipping and returns. Your purchase would also be doing something good in the community; as every pair you buy provides a free pair to someone in need. Another great thing about this company is they have a Home Try-On program where you can test wear 5 frames and decide on the ones you want to keep and simply return the rest.  I am taking some shots from my vacation travels this summer and pairing them with some stunning shades from their collection.

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Joplin shades

If you ever find yourself in Paris,  Avenue des Champs-Élysées is the fashionista’s dream location! Who doesn’t enjoy streets lined with all kinds of high-end shops like Tiffany, Gucci and Louis Vuitton to chic and affordable ones like H&M, Gap and Abercrombie & Fitch. It also houses one of the biggest Haagen-Daz restaurants I’ve ever seen in life! The end of the long strip ends at the Arc de Triumph a simply breathtaking view at night. Tourist life requires being chic and comfortable. Here I’m rocking a hot pink dress with a light plaid button down and  gladiator sandals. I love these Joplin shades from Warby Parker, they are a great neutral tone that makes for the perfect accessory to this look. Simple yet never understated!

Notre Dame De Paris in Kincaid Shades

Notre Dame Cathedral was another highlight of my Parisian trip this summer. As a child I dreamed of being an architect and my love for structures with intricate lines and over arching angles has remained the same until this day. This church is magnificent in all it’s glory inside and out! A big floppy hat just wasn’t enough for how bright and sunny it was the day we visited. These Kincaid aviators from Warby Parker are perfect for the occasion in a brushed navy blue tint and shape that differs from your average aviator sunglasses. They definitely caught my eye!

London’s Big Ben in June Moonstone Shades

Sightseeing in London is amazing! The people are friendly, the pubs are filled with great food and music, and an Oyster card gets you a ride on the bus or Underground transit to hang out among the locals who are as diverse as their beautiful city. London to me felt like home away from home. Something about the vibe of this place just immediately put me at ease and I could totally see myself staying forever if it weren’t for the long flight to get back to the states to see my family LOL. The temperature does drop significantly when the sun goes down so travel with a sweater or light jacket during if you are vacationing there during the summer months. Here I’m rocking my chambray head wrap with a denim on denim look and these June Moonstone cat eye shades from Warby Parker provide the added vintage vibe I’m looking for.

Buckingham Palace in Henning Shades

I can just imagine the crowds that surround this place on a daily basis just hoping for a glimpse of royalty. We Americans are so enamored with all things British aren’t we? I would have loved to make it on the inside of this beautiful place. The grounds surrounding it were just as lovely. You cannot make it to London without making your way over to Buckingham Palace and taking a walk through the Princess Diana Memorial Park. My black and white grid cami complete with linen black shorts and gladiator sandals pair well with the Henning shades from Warby Parker in Jet Black with a sleek matte frame.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Hey friends,

It’s almost Valentine’s Day already guys! I seriously feel like we just finished celebrating Christmas. Time flies so quickly at times! So today, I thought I’d share some gift ideas with you for the upcoming holiday that would be ideal for your significant other.  I find that sometimes it’s hard to shop for men during the holidays, I swear sometimes they sell things that are so corny and remind me more of something a sitcom dad would have use for rather than the hot guy I would certainly have in my life if I were dating someone LOL.   Have you already purchased your significant other their V-Day gifts? Share them with me in the comment section below, I promise your secret is safe with me *wink, wink* Have a fantastic weekend dolls! Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
