white dress

 




It seems like summer isn’t complete if one hasn’t donned that staple white dress.  If you have quite a few in your closet, I’m pretty sure you try to wear every single one of them as much as you can while the sun is still beaming and labor day hasn’t come yet, haha.  I’ve been trying to wear mine but couldn’t, for the longest time, find an appropriate occasion to do so. Actually, I take that back, I think a LWD (little or LONG white dress, lol, whichever style you prefer!)  can actually be worn at any anytime during the summer months, depending on how you style it or how it coordinates with your mood. I guess my excuse would be is that I have been craving for more of my fun, colorful outfits but since this one deserves to be taken out on a spin,take pictures of it while I’m at it and share it on the blog and hope that y’all enjoy this post!

Thank you so much for reading and see you on my next post!

colorblocking



 
 

I’ve always been drawn to colorblock pieces but if you take a peek at my closet, all you’ll find are floral/graphic  and plain dresses.  If I am remembering correctly, this dress was an outcome of what was supposed to have been a window-shopping  trip that was incited by my extreme nervousness from my sports team losing in the finals, hence my altogether complete avoidance of being near a TV. Lol. I figured, “just” trying on dresses might be a good distraction. Well, I ended up picking this up over a much desired floral dress because I wanted to try something new and the two teenage girl cousins I was with at that time said so. No regrets ever since! This dress garnered so many compliments that I never want to let go of it! Even when I am old and gray…. And probably will not fit into it. Hahaha! I hope y’all are having a good week!

maxi dress

Who seriously doesn’t love the already-a-classic maxi dress for the summer? I know some of you are probably screaming in protest that noooo, these don’t ever look good on you but trust me when I say that there is a maxi dress out there for all of us… the optimist  in me believes this, hahaha! This hot weather staple has been around for a few summers now and I know that a lot of us felt that this was one hard style to pull off if you didn’t have the height for it but as our summers progressed, I have found (and seen) that the trick is finding THE perfect one for your body type.  I can confidently say that I have seen a maxi dress on almost all shapes and sizes and I am happy to share  that majority of the time, I have not been disappointed.  So believe me when I say that you look good in it!!

orange is the new black

 
 
 

This is the title my husband came up with after I had shown him the pictures for this post. He obviously wasn’t being serious but too much TV (him) and lack of blog post title ideas (me), well….. let us just stick with that.  It might as well be since I seem to have a print-mixing, color-binge theme going on as of late.  Not that this is different from my previous posts, as you’ve probably noticed, I wear a lot of color. and prints. and more color. These are my absolute favorite things to wear during the hot, summer months. They just seem to go with the mood that everybody seems to be in during this time of the year. The colors on this ensemble is no exception. I had worn this to work and love how it is such a pick-me-up especially on humdrum work days. Wait…. Is this even orange? Lol!

tuxedo jacket





Breaking away from all those overly feminine outfits I have been posting recently… way.too.girly ... it's killing me! Hahaha, who am I kidding, I love skirts and dresses so much, they practically make up my entire spring/summer closet. My cousin and I took these photos in the end of spring, hence the jacket.  It wasn’t quite 80 degrees (like it is now!) back then so this was just perfect.  I love the colors on this jacket so much that it needed to make an appearance on a blog post. My outfit preferences on certain days are very mood-dependent, and on some days, my no-brainer outfit is a trusty pair of skinnies and a nice jacket or blazer.  Grab and go as I would like to call it. I'm out of the door in, say, an hour? Hahaha, an hour definitely isn’t the definition of grab and go but you guys get the picture! Have you guys thought of what your go-to outfit is on lazy days?
 To everyone residing in the states, HAVE A HAPPY and SAFE 4th of July!!!
