I rocked this romantic and very feminine outfit for my friends bridal shower over the weekend. I do have to admit though, I was NOT diggin the pantyhose at all. I felt like a grandma. What do you think? The knot collar top and skirt are both from Zara’s spring/summer 12 collection. The pumps are by BCBGeneration and they are so damn comfortable. I love the cap toe! Hope you all have been having a kick ass week! The weather has been friggin’ beyouooteefullll here in NYC! xx
Zara makes getting dressed for work oh so exciting! I always find the best pieces like this embellished collar blouse. There is nothing I love more than details. The leather trim on my slacks (also from Zara) make me way too happy. This yellow croco leather Lodis bag was a TJ Maxx find for the win. Luuurrvveee these nail polish strips that I bought at Target. They really catch your eye and look super metallic. The shade is Lust-Rous #470. If you haven’t checked out the Zara Spring Collection yet I highly recommend! I am obsessed with everything from the edgy pieces to the gorgeous pastel and neon colors to the structured pieces. Do you shop at Zara? Where is your favorite place to shop for work clothes? xx
I will pretty much use any day as an excuse to dress up and stuff my face with delicious food, so naturally I went out for Valentine’s Day. Dessert from Candela Candela in the east village of NYC. Coconut flan & Chocolate Coco Pralines. Yum. Mint Green accessories to compliment my polka dots! Gaga is saying mint green will be a big color this year. How do you feel about it? I hope you all had a fabulous Valentine’s Day and got mad LOVE! XX
Be (B)eautiful: Color blocking is a HUGE trend right now. The easiest way to copy this trend without looking crazy is to match your colors up. Find different colors that complement one another. I stumbled upon this blogger, Hallie, and got so inspired by her outfit. Be (A)uthentic: You ever get that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you are trying to make a decision about something? That gut feeling? How many of you follow it? Be (D)etermined: Whatever you want in life, start today. Do it now, not tomorrow . Let it be a small beginning – a tiny beginning. Your happiness depends on starting today, every day. “Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” – Conrad Hilton
The moment I laid eyes on these coral flats at H&M I had to have them. Coral is a BIG color trend for this Spring season so you better act like you know and get chu some! I have been obsessing over this color for some time now and even rocked the color HERE over the winter. I started a great new job in the fashion industry this week and I am so grateful. I stayed positive throughout my time at my last hello hole job and the universe repaid me with the perfect opportunity. So seriously, if you want something stay positive and work for it! This outfit was what I wore yesterday. Its market week at work, which means buyer meetings galore. So slacks are a must. I copped these skinny slacks from H&M and paired it with pops of color! I am on a mission for the perfect coral colored blush too. Any suggestions? p.s Special Thanks to my sista for taking my photo!
