Summer is officially here, and so are shorts! If I have to be honest, these are the comfiest shorts I’ve ever owned, and probably one of the shortest. 😊 Styling them has been a little bit of a challenge. I wanted a relax yet chic and age-appropriate look without sacrificing style.

Stripes are big trends; and mixing different types of stripes is becoming very popular. I have to say, it’s a little bit out of my comfort zone, but I love how the whole look turned out. Stepping out of your comfort zone sometimes may just be what you needed!

Red is one of this season’s trending colors; and it works just fine for me, because I love Red. I think this is a chic and fun combination and I’m glad I chose to wear these comfy and cute slip-on sneakers. They are very comfortable and so much prettier in real life.

Black-beautiful-bloggerI’m not a sneakers kind of girl, but when I see super cute ones, I just can’t resist. They’re perfect for those casual days when you need to give your feet a break from the heels.  Whoever said fashion is worth the pain is either lying or has never worn uncomfortable shoes! So what do you think of this look?

Off I go! 🙂

Beautiful-top-fashion-bloggerThis weekend was fun yet relax. We spent yesterday celebrating the amazing dads in our life; and my daughters couldn’t be more blessed to have such an amazing father. It’s amazing to see the love they have for each other, and the bond between them; it just melts my heart and makes me so happy. To all the super dads and father figures out there, we salute you!

I put together this simple look for a quick run in town. This short sleeve crew neck blouse is so versatile and comfortable, and goes well with everything: Shorts, jeans and skirt etc… For this look, I chose to play it up a little bit with this striped asymmetrical ruffle skirt, for a simple yet feminine feel. A corsage pin like the one I styled with my top, can add a three-dimensional fashion element to your outfit. A quick and easy way to give little bit of interest to an otherwise plain look. 

Beautiful-top-fashion-bloggerWell, that’s all for today, friends! Would you wear this? I hope you have a fantastic day and make this new week an amazing one!

Hello June!

Today is the 1st Monday of June; and I can’t believe that we’re already half way through the year. Let’s all claim the new month to be our best one yet, shall we!

Isn’t it this dress fabulous and perfect for the warm weather!? Lightweight dresses such as this one are closet must-haves in this hot and humid weather. The team at Just Fab online really outdid themselves with these fashionable style they’ve being offering this past couple of years. I love every detail about the dress and the tie dye blue really pop against my skin and the yellow tassel earrings.I The dress is flattering and provides just the right amount of stretch. The Wrap front high-low is another classy detail that I love. I kept all other accessories simple and I Iove how this look turned out. – I think this one will be on repeat a lot this season! 😉

What are your go-to pieces in the Spring-Summer time?
