Happy Monday, beauties!

Maxi dresses are perfect for Fall as much as they are for Summer time. This off-shoulder or cold-shoulder maxi has been hanging in my closet for a while now; and I’ve tried to style it this past Summer to only decide to hang onto it a little bit longer.

Truth be told, it was one size bigger than what I would wear, but the number on the prize tag was so good that I couldn’t have passed it up – It’s such a beautiful bohemian maxi dress – so I decided to take her home and arrange a nice spot for her in the closet! In the fall, I like playing with earth tone colors in combination with dark and rich warm tones; and that’s exactly what I created with this look.  – I hope you enjoy it!

Multicultural-fashion-bloggerHappy Monday beauties, 

I’m kicking off this week in this simple denim, stripes, and animal prints combo. Animal prints are so much in-style this season, and you will see anything from leopard to snake skin prints. These cute snake skin pumps are some oldies but definitely goodies. They are very comfortable and perfect for work style or casual chic styling days. Paired with this go-to denim bottom and this cute striped and tie details blouse, I was ready for a casual meeting with a client!

Happy Friday beauties, 

I’m back from my birthday celebration, which, if you care to know, was a great one Lol. The love from family and friends (and even my internet family) was overwhelming! It’s a great feeling! 🙂 

Today’s outfit is about a casual look that you can wear on a weekend errands run, or for a quick out and about in the early days of fall. Fall calls for earthy, warm, and rich tones; and these two combinations are ones that definitely define that untypical fall mood. I love this casual outfit, because it’s very comfortable in every way, yet it’s stylish. The truth is I didn’t even plan to shoot this look for the blog, but in between my errands with the family, I just had to improvise it, because hey, I thought I actually look great! And based on the many compliments, more than a few strangers must have agreed with me on that! Lol. Would you wear this outfit on a typical casual day? What are your favorite colors to sport in  the Fall? XO

mulicultural-lifestyle-bloggerHello friends, 

Well, October is here! Can we all take a minute to reminisce on the fact that October is already here? Which means in a little over 90 days, we will be ushering into a new year. I’m saying all of this to say that time waits for no man! In fact, I can’t believe I will be celebrating another year of life tomorrow.(Well, depending on when you are reading this post, my birthday is on October 3rd. 🙂 ) Time definitely is flying fast. It’s a reminder to us all to use our time wisely and spend most of it doing what we love the most.

Now that I’m done freaking out about time, let’s get to fashion! 🙂 Stripes are a never ending trend; and this striped dress is such a cute number! The ruffle details and the asymmetric hems are such feminine touches; and I love the adjustable spaghetti strap. For an even more feminine feel, I opted for some pretty and bright statement accessories; and the colors contrasted well against the blue striped dress. Tassel and fringe were a big hit this Summer; and I know we will see more of them in the new season of fall as well. To finish off the look, I went for these cute floral sandals! 😉 I hope you like today not-so-fall look. 🙂

Dress-and-sneakers-outfitHappy Monday, beauties.

I’m kicking off this week in a relaxed striped knit dress and my comfy blush sneakers. Sometimes you just have to choose the comfort of kicks or flats over the sexiness of heels. I have been rocking dresses with sneakers lately and I must admit this trend is one I wasn’t expecting to follow, but I’m glad I surprised myself. This is a really simple and minimalist dress to be worn to hang out with the family at the park or to an easy bbq… It could also be dress-up with cute pumps for a girls night out.

I love how casual and comfortable yet fashionable this look is; and as we’re now officially in Fall, we need more than ever a transitional piece close by for those chilly evenings. Personally, I would always have a denim jacket around to throw on when needed. 

Would you wear this? What are your thoughts on wearing sneakers with dresses? Please, do share! 😉
