1 Camisole Worn 3 Ways

TGIF Beautiful People!

I made it through my first week at work, whew! (wipes brow).  Next week the real work begins, the students come back but today I’m happy it’s Friday!

Camisoles have fast become a closet staple, even when dressed with more casual pieces they always keep your look very chic. They range in price from $10 and up and can be found pretty much anywhere you shop. I’ve newly developed a love for them, thanks to seeing some of my favorite bloggers such as Rachelle, Charnele and Gina rock them.  I only have a few in my closet right now but wanted to share with you 3 simple ways you can rock them with some other items in your closet and get the most bang for your buck. What woman doesn’t love a piece that she can remix like new over and over with just a tweak of an accessory, shoes and bottoms?

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Pink + White Denim

Happy Mid Week!

Today’s look is simple and chic with a button down pink blouse and white denim. I’ve got to admit that white denim has really become one of my favorites for this time of year. I don’t know who came up with the ban of wearing white after Labor Day but I”m so happy the ban has been lifted, from winter whites to spring whites and summer whites..it’s really ALL GOOD! I’m still on the hunt for a pair of white overalls and I also want a sexy white dress. S. Fl is famous for it’s all white parties. White denim looks so good against so many colors. Ladies just head to your nearest Express and pick ANY portofino shirt and cami and a pair of white denim jeans and you’ve got yourself a great rotation of hot looks. We’re almost at the end of the week and even closer to the end of this month. I hope time slows down a bit when my summer vacation starts 🙂

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

For the Fanatic in You!

Hi Friends,

Thanks for stopping by! Today features a couple of rockin’ hats from Fanatics , an online shop for everything sports, specializing in apparel. Here in South Florida we are huge sports fans both men and women. As much as I love to support the Miami Heat , I can never forget my hometown teams back in Boston where I’m from (Go Pats! , Go Celtics! , Go Bruins! , Go Red Sox!).  In undergrad my college was in walking distance from Fenway Park, so I’ve been to plenty of  Red Sox games as well as hung out at the billiards and clubs on Lansdowne Street.  Of course we fashionistas will rock sports apparel, but we still have to put our stylish flair and spin on things. So, I’ve created a couple of sets around some cool hats from Fanatics. Keeping in mind that you can show your team spirit at a multitude of spots in your city outside of the actual stadium/arena I’ve added a couple of shoe options for the occasion 🙂 Are you or any of your loved ones sports Fanatics? Then you have to check them out!  Represent your teams in the comment section below! Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Happy Tuesday!

Today is my last official day of work ‘whooo-sah!!!’   Very recently, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and got to thinking that it would be cool to highlight a few of my FB friends and family members who have a great sense of style.  I guess you can call this post my version of street style! It’s always interesting to see how one’s personality plays a part in shaping a sense of style that is uniquely theirs.  What I love about each person I featured here is that they all effortlessly stylish. Over the time that I’ve known them, no matter what they are wearing, they have all worn it with such a healthy dose of confidence that it had no choice but to look good!   Aside from graciously providing me with a look and the details on each look, they were asked a question about what inspires their sense of fashion. I hope you enjoy these fashion forward individuals as much as I do! Until next time loves. Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Happy Monday dolls!

Today, I want to share some work place fashion inspiration. These looks are based off of my closet staples that I’ve worn on the blog. Let’s begin with the first look, which features a  peplum top and pencil skirt, two things I wear quite often. I love peplum tops, they come in a variety of styles and textures, so even if you own a few of them, they don’t all look the same. The second look is a tunic dress with a pop of color.  If you’ve noticed, I love to insert a pop of color into my outfits.  Whether it’s a monochromatic look or one that could simply use an accent color; bright colors add a touch of needed flavor to almost anything you wear. You can’t beat a midi skirt with stripes as shown in the third look! Stripes are great paired with other patterns and are also another trick for breaking up monochromatic looks.   I always have a lot of files and books on me, so I typically have to carry at least one large tote bag. So for those days when I want to wear a clutch to work, it has to double as my wallet. I will use my Coach briefcase bag seen here for my big items and put the clutch inside of it, pulling it out for those moments I want to give my work place look a transition to after 5 attire.  Happy hours & professional mixers are perfect for this!  The great thing about each of these items is that you can remix them in many ways! For example, the windowpane tunic can be remixed as a top under a pleated or leather midi skirt. What are some of your work place closet staples? Until next time! Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
