City Fun

TGIF fashionistas!!! 
Any plans for this holiday weekend? I'm going to keep this post short and simple because I'm leaving to Washington DC for the holiday weekend with my husband and I need to finish packing (eek!) but I wanted to get this post up. 










I wore this outfit this past Sunday for some Sunday-funday in NYC. I love hanging out downtown New York, so I made a little NYC trip with my little sisters and husband. We had lots of fun and I knew we were going to do a lot of walking so I wanted to wear something comfy and casual. 

I wore light colored jeans with this pineapple print graphic tee. I knew the most comfortable part of my outfit had to be my foot wear so I wore these cheetah print slip-ons form Target. I am so cheetah obsessed! These will work perfect going into the Fall as well for a casual Fall outfit. To finish the look I wore a orange tote and my aviators. 


Outfit Details:

Tee - Lucky Brand via Burlington Coat Factory 
Jeans - Love Culture 
Slip-ons - Target
Bag - Oliva + Joy
Sunnies - Forever21 




Hop you guys have safe and wonderful holiday weekend!!

Chic on the Go

Happy Tuesday guys!
I've been feeling a little "defeated" lately and felt like I need a little motivation. I guess we all have those days, right?  My lovely husband surprised me over the weekend with the #GirlBoss book; attached to the gift was a note that read "Follow your dreams. You're too good to not make them a reality." This came at the perfect moment for the uplifting inspiration I need.  













Outfit Details:

Blazer - FurorModa (here *on sale*)
Shirt - Lucky Brand via Burlington Coat Factory
Jeans - Forever21
Shoes - Agac'i - (also love these)

Accessories:

Bag  - Forever21
Necklace - Forward Fashionista



There goes my favorite $4 blazer! I finally got wear it over the weekend to the BoWhore fashion show event. I will tell you more about the event at the end the post. Back to the outfit. So, it was a little chilly on Saturday and it felt like Fall came by to say hi. I threw on a blazer and embraced the Fall weather. No sense in fighting it lol #teamsummer. I wanted to dress comfy since the event was in New York but I still wanted to make sure I still looked very trendy and chic. I found this houndstooth print shirt in the summer clearance rack. Shirts like these and tank tops are on summer clearance but they are a great buy because they can be worn underneath a blazer for the Fall. I was going to pair the look with distressed boyfriend jeans but there was just too much going on. Fashion tip of the day: Sometimes less is more. With that said, I went with plain dark denim. 
I wore white mid heels and my white tote bag to fit my camera for the show. To finish the outfit, I added a bold red lip and my hair picked up. I always feel that makes me look very sophisticated. My husband calls me a debutante.


Now on to the event.....


This purple skirt is my FAVORITE!



The Designer, Jewelz


Blogger buddy Marcel from BeautyintheShadows17, and her friend Mel. 

Jewelz aka Bow is an independent designer with a passion and dream. The collection was called #MeetMaryJane. The designs were cute and funky and I love how they go from dressy and girly to street style and grungy. There's a little bit of something for everyone. I love the passion and drive behind the fashionista. Her mission is to provide a trendy style that is comfortable to wear and is, also, representative of her likes.

Remix Post: Graphic Tank

It's remix time!!
You know my motto readers; there is nothing wrong with re-using your wardrobe pieces.




Today's post is all about one item 3 different ways. I'm a big graphic tee lover in case you don't know by now. I purchased this "Love is the new Black" tee at Charlotte Russe for under ten bucks. I've gotten so much use out of it and I've even used it to the beach as a cover up because it's long enough. So here's 3 ways on how to style the same graphic tee. 

Look 1 (left) - This was from my Tropical Vibes post. I wore this outfit on my honeymoon in Antigua and I love bright colors when I'm on vacation. So I dressed up the tee with tropical colors for a girly island look. 

Look 2 (middle) - This look was from one of my more recent post this month, Effortless Chic. I wore the graphic tee this time with all white and black and then gave a color boast with this neon blazer. It gave the outfit an instant chic factor without having to do too much. 

Look 3 (right) - This look is from when I first started blogging in my Love is the New Black post. I paired 3 of my favorite pieces together; blazer, graphic tee and boyfriend jeans. This is like my uniform because it's such a effort less look and still very trendy. This time I added a stripped blazer for a nice and fun mix. 



Which look is your favorite ? Comment below and let me know. 
Have a great day loves!

Simple and Sleek

Happy Tuesday!
Hope everyone survived the Monday blues and has had a great start to their week!









There's nothing too over the top about this outfit. It's very simple and comfortable. I love the detail, material and color of this blouse. My favorite feature of this blouse? The price! I caught a really great sale at Furormoda and you guys won't believe all the stuff I got for $4 each. Don't you just love a sale!?
At first I wasn't sure how I wanted to pair this blouse, since it's very loose and it came without a belt. I honestly thought that had I added a belt around the waist, I would've felt like I was hiding a bun in my oven. However, it needed a belt in order to clinch the middle of my waist. So, I just created a waist line by adding the belt. I love the cute embellishment on the neckline. I finished the look with simple white jeans, a white tote and a rosy pink lip. I kept the accessories to a minimum since it wasn't a over the top look. I finished the look with a simple silver watch and a few silver midi rings.



Outfit Details:

Blouse - Furormoda *sold out* (similar in black here)
Jeans - H&M
Tote - Forever21
Sandals - Charlotte Russe (old)

Accessories:
Watch - GoJane (here)
Rings - H&M



If you want to see one of my favorite $4 purchases from the Furormoda sale, you can do so (here) in my FabFinds section. 
Thanks for reading!
Until next time fashionistas. Live. Laugh. Love.

Beauty post - Lipstick Heaven

Happy Monday guys!
It's been a while since I've done a beauty post and I wanted to talk to you about a few good products I've recently bought. I haven't tried some out, so I wanted to wait to see how I liked them and then share my results. I decided to share this beauty post about my current favorite lipsticks I've bought, since we all know I'm such a lipstick hoarder. lol. 



Lipstick heaven! Here's a little mix of colors from your everyday drug stores. 



NYX - Butter Lipstick
#BLS05 Hunk Beau Gosse
#BLS08 Mary Janes



I always wanted to try the the butter lipsticks from NYX. For some reason I always end up getting their matte ones. This time I went for their butter ones, and they are exactly that; smooth as butter! They feel so moist and have a really rich texture. The Hunk Beau Goose has a very light berry color. It's the perfect light shade for the Fall. The Mary Janes give off more of a maroon color, which I love as well for the Fall. These were purchased at Ulta for $5.99.




Rimmel London - #560 As You Want Victoria
NYC - #405 Blue Rose


I purchased these two in my local CVS. The Rimmel was so confusing for me because when I purchased it in the store it had a reddish tone. However, when I brought it home it looked like a pink tone to me lol. I even asked my sister what shade is this to her and she felt the same way as me. It gave off both red and pink tones at the same time lol. Nonetheless, I still love the richness of it and the pigment and the pretty packaging. 
The NYC one was recommended by a close friend. I loved it on her and she told me it was by NYC and it was only $2. I've used NYC before so I knew I was going to love it. It's such a barbie type of pink, which I love. 



Elf Lip Stain - #22123 Berry Blush
Sona Kashuk - #93 Classic Red
Wet n Wild - #918D Cherry Bomb

I was eyeing the Elf lip stain for a while and decided to finally try it. I'm a little on the fence about it after I tried it. The tip looks and feels like a marker and that's a little weird for me. Not so sure if I'll ever buy more shades of these again. 
I've never tried a Sonia Kashuk lipstick before, and this one was gifted to me. I love the texture and I love that it smells a little like cake. I definitely want to buy more shades of this brand. 
This Wet n Wild was my most recent purchase and it's the perfect shade for the Fall. Burgundy is one of my favorite Fall colors. Wet n Wild is such a good collection because of it's great textures and unbeatable price. 




Here's a swatch of each color. Which one is your favorite?




Hope you guys enjoyed this lippie post! I'll be doing another beauty post soon. 
Have a great day loves!

Paint your Canvas

It's Friday eve guys!
Any plans for the weekend? My little sister, my mini-me, is turning 16! I remember when I used to hold her and take care of her and now she's busy going to teen bashes and wearing crop tops :( LOL




(failed attempt at my girly swirl)


(being silly)




"Life is an empty canvas, and it's up to you how you want to paint it."  
It's one of my favorite quotes and for some reason this outfit reminded me of that. I did a lot of color mixing here. Tulle skirts have been trending this season. I got this one during the Spring and I loved how it fit me. I didn't feel too ballerina-like because it wasn't overly puffy. I had worn this tulle baby during the spring (here) and this time I turned it to a complete summer look by pairing it with this multi color floral crop top. I had only worn this crop top once this summer so I decided to wear it on the blog. I'm trying to wear all of my summer pieces before summer is gone. The floral print mixed with the soft pink of the skirt gave this look a very soft and girly vibe, which I loved. 
I was going to play it safe & wear black heels but decided to "paint my canvas" with a bit more color. I searched in my Kloset for something a little more colorful and paired the outfit with these sea green ankle strap heels. To keep the colorful scheme and finish the look, I added a purple lip. Colored lips are always fun. 


Outfit Details:

Skirt - Windsor (similar here different color)
Top - Forever21
Shoes - similar here *on sale*
Monogram necklace - Prima Donna (here)
Lipstick - Maybelline #1000 Lavender Voltage




Hope everyone has a blessed Thursday and weekend!
Until next time!

Effortless Chic

Happy Tuesday lovelies!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and is having a great start to their week! 










Ladies, have you ever had a pair of heels that made you feel sexy and confident. almost Beyonce-like, when you're walking down the street? Well... these heels do that for me! The minute I saw these? I didn't even blink before I was already clicking checkout on Lolashoetique
I worked my outfit around these shoes because I felt I hadn't worn them in a while. Why not bring them out to play? I created a very simple yet chic summer look. Like Melissa from Melissa's Sweet Style said in her blog post yesterday (here), lots of bloggers are already preparing outfits for the Fall in the blogging world but I'm hanging on to summer as much as I can! lol
I kept the look as effortless as I could by pairing simple white denim with this white graphic tee that's no stranger to the blog. I'm a big graphic tee girl because they give you a chance to rock something easy and still have it look like I did in this post. To give the look the pop of color I wanted, I wore this really bright neon blazer. It's very lightweight and perfect for summer nights. I was undecided between this neon pink or a neon yellow. I have been on the hunt for the perfect yellow blazer but I felt the neon yellow was too bright for my skin. I honestly thought I looked like a yellow BIC hi-lighter. (cue the crying emoji). To finish the look, I added silver accessories (which I rarely wear) and a black clutch. 


Outfit Details:

Tee - Charlotte Russe
Jeans - H&M
Shoes - Lolashoetique 
Blazer - Agac'i

Accesories:
Sunnies & watch - Go Jane
Clutch & midi rings - H&M
Charm bracelet - Pandora



Hope you guys have wonderful day! 
I, also, wanted to say that Mrs. Doubtfire and Jumanji are two of my favorite movies ever, and my prayers are with Robin Williams's family during this difficult time. Thank you Robin, may you sleep in peace! #love
