Summer-casual-look

Happy Wednesday, beauties.

I’m taking on the last days of summer in super casual looks like this one. These denim shorts are the most comfortable I’ve own this Summer; and they go well with every top in my closet! Though the pictures did not do justice to this sleeveless off-white top, I can assure you that it’s gives you this comfy and relaxed look and vibe you go for when the time calls for casual chic. Such a cute and very forgiving piece! This pom-pom straw bag is a summer favorite…  Straw or bamboo bag and Pom-Pom are a big hit this season. Check out how I styled this fun summer look with my Pom-Pom sandals and beach bag here.

Well, I hope you like this casual denim look; Off I go! 🙂

The quote above by Susan Falls-Hilles reminds me of how most of us are grappled by fear of the uncertain and sometimes, really prefer being in the phase of “status quo” that becomes our comfort zone. 

Summer-casual-top-and-capri
The situation may well differ from one person to another but it comes down to the point where we sacrifice something for the sake of one other thing. Perhaps, it’s an unfulfilling job that we don’t like, yet we don’t want to leave because it pays the bills; or maybe it’s an abusive and unhealthy relationship that you have a hard time getting out of, because your financial freedom depends on it…
 
Summer-casual-top-and-capri
 
 
Whatever the case may be, when your gut tells you to move on, move right on and don’t be afraid of the uncertainty. In most cases, they say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” or “Don’t rock the boat”, but like the author of this quote suggested, when it’s starting feeling too comfortable, especially when your life depends on it, it’s time to move on!
 
Summer-casual-top-and-capriThe fact is in most cases, while you may feel at ease in your comfort zone, it may actually be unhealthy to just stick with what has become the norm for you simply because it’s comfortable or familiar.
 
Summer-casual-top-and-capri

At the end of the day, we have only one life to live; and you risk going through it missing your purpose and not realizing your dreams.

Summer-casual-top-and-capri

While the uncertainty may seem frightening, you will never know what’s on the other side of the door, unless you muster up the courage to open it.

Summer-casual-top-and-capri

Some people may find this analogy to be flawed because they strongly believe in the statement: “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it”.  For others, however, it’s rather the continued setbacks and failures in their everyday life that have created a sentiment of fear or desperation disguised in the feeling of comfortability.

Reality is, at one point in our life, we all have experiment setbacks and failures. Eventually we get tired, drained, unmotivated or uninspired to keep trying or keep going. – Life has happened so much that we believe that because we haven’t been successful in the past, our chances of being successful at a new venture is nearly impossible.

Summer-casual-top-and-capriWe believe that there’s no reason to do more, to become more or be better. We continually see a barrier that separates us from our dreams, and we get so familiar with it that it becomes our reality.

Summer-casual-top-and-capri

Unfortunately, as a result, we become our own barrier… our worse enemy. We are too afraid of the uncertainty and we become too comfortable in our mediocrity.

Cute-summer-top-capri-pants

So, If you’re reading this today, I hope you already know that there’s no real barrier that separates us from our dreams and that it’s okay to dream big and expect more. We are created in the image of greatness; and it is in our right to want to be great. There’s nothing wrong with that.

She-believed-could-so-she-did-shirt

Hello guys,

If you know me well, or follow me on Instagram or any social media for that matter, you probably know that I’m a huge inspirational quotes person.

Sharing inspirational quotes with family and friends, for me doesn’t mean that my life is perfect and that my posts necessary always reflect  what I’m doing or how I’m feeling at the moment.

On the other hand, while some people believe that those who share inspirational quotes or portray a positive attitude in their social media feeds may be subject to loneliness or depression, I don’t believe that statement is necessary true.

customized-girl-shirt

I can’t speak for everybody, but what I can tell you is that my life isn’t perfect but it’s far from being boring; I strive and try to live a positive life to the best of my ability and I wouldn’t preach anything I’m not doing or trying to do myself.

If anything, my inspirational words are self-motivation at times, and just one of the few actions towards my aspiration to inspire or motivate others to have a positive attitude and live their best life.

customized-girl-shirtThere are so many awesome quotes out there, and for me to decide on a favorite one has to be one of the hardest decisions I would have to make. However, there’s no doubt that the quote “She Believed She Could, So She did!” is one of them.

customized-girl

customized-girls-You guys know It’s not everyday that you get to design your own shirts; and I could barely contain my excitement when I had the opportunity to choose a couple T-shirts from the customized girl website that I can customize to my liking.

customized-girl-shirt

However, little did I know I would have a hard time choosing the graphics that I wanted, but I just knew “She Believed She Could, So She Did” would be one of them.

The customizing experience with Customized Girl was so easy and the T-shirts were shipped to me as fast as possible. I received them just a few days after customizing them and they were just as expected and I know I will get a lot of wears out of these shirts. I love them and they look like they will hold up to a lot of wears.

Back-to-school season is in full swing and this is the perfect timing to pack on some pretty shirts and if you like them customized, now you know where to look 🙂

There were a lot of things I believed I could do and I went on and did them; and I hope to continue surprising and impressing myself with all the greatnesses in me.

CUSTOMized-girl-shirts

… And I hope you don’t let other people or the negative voice in your head deter you from the greatness within you.

customized-girl-shirtWhat’s your thoughts on inspirational quotes and what’s your favorite one?

Thank you for reading and cheers to fabulous Weekend.

victoria-beckham-floral-romperHey guys,
 
You’ve probably never seen me in a romper on the blog before; and that’s because I have always had a hard time finding the right one, and I even stopped looking. I’ve seen and tried some pretty ones with fun prints and cute details, but I would end up not buying them, because they were too short and revealing.
Maybe I wasn’t looking at the right place, or maybe I’m being a little too picky and worrying too much about the rompers being too short… What I know for sure is that, no classy lady likes to have her butt hanging out of her shorts/rompers; and I think it’s safe to say that this retro prints romper in the Victoria Beckham for Target collections was a great find. Plus, it was on a major sale and I thought it was worth a try. I must admit I thought it was still a little short to my taste; and being a little over the average height and being blessed with some curves doesn’t help either. Lol
Overall, I like the fit and the whole 70’s vibe look. I wore it to a fun baseball game/barbecue; and it was a hit. I completed the look with my cute pom pom flats and straw handbag, my favorite summer hat for a summery and trendy look.
What do you think? Did I make this retro floral romper work ? I think it gives me hope that I can rock short rompers too.

Victoria-secret-for-target-pink-dressHappy Wednesday beauties

I wore this bright pink dress to my Godson’s birthday party a few weeks ago. You can’t go wrong with a cute little bright dress in Summer; and I’m surely enjoying my little Summer dresses. This dress is one of my “Victoria Beckham for Target” dresses’ haul, (check this one out) and I love that it gives me an instant effortless chic vibe. This chic multilayered beads necklace is a nice pop against the pink dress, and it’s even prettier in person!  I hope you’re not getting too tired of seeing these striped heels on the blog. I love them, and they pair really well with my cute little dresses. I wish I could promise you that you will not be seeing more of them on the blog, but that will be a lie… 🙂  Hey don’t judge me! Well, off I go!
