Fashion Week Minnesota was a total hit this past April. Many shows were sold out and the events were full of amazing local talents. Even though I have watched most shows in the comfort of my Pj’s, because I was under the weather and was nursing myself back to health at the time, I enjoyed every bit of it, thanks to the Fashion Week MN team that made sure to kindly broadcast the shows live on Instagram.
I’m part of the Fashion Week MN class of 2022 ambassadors program, and prior to the shows, I had the honor to attend the Fashion Week Ambassador Mixer Event at the Can Can Wonderland in Saint Paul, MN. It was a beautiful and fun experience altogether, and also a great opportunity to sip and mingle with like-minded fashion enthusiasts, fashionistas, and influencers; and who can say no to some photoshoot sessions? Not me, anyways! 🙂
The event has been sponsored by Can Can Wonderland in Saint Paul, who provided the venue and food; Patron and Press Seltzer made sure we were good on beverages and Buttercream Wedding Cakes came through with the delicious desserts. Everything was great and so much fun; and these beautiful pictures were taken by @LordHamlet73 and @theriot.photo. You can find all these local businesses on Instagram. Go support if you can. 🙂
As far as my outfit goes, I kept it real simple and elegant. The statement piece of my outfit was my Brazilian gold necklace set, that has gotten many compliments. – Message me to order – It was still a chilly night in the Midwest, so this classy soft satin trench coat was the perfect pair to my form-hugging sleeveless mustard midi dress. I think both colors complemented each other nicely; Sometimes even in the world of fashion week, less is more. 🙂 – Enjoy the pictures.
As always, thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!
Love and light,
Styling a blazer with a denim is an easy and quick way to elevate your look for any occasion. In this post, I’m sharing with you an elevate casual chic look that can take you from the office to a casual night with friends, or in my case from a business meeting to running errands in town – A quick swap of shoes from heels to sneakers was all I had to do – ; and since Spring calls for bright and pastel hues, this purple blazer is quite a staple for the season. If you follow me on Instagram you would’ve seen how styled the blazer three different ways with the same shoes. in a recent reel. Blazers are very chic and can be paired with any piece in your closet. All you need to do is have fun with your creative mind, and play with pieces that will compliment the blazer… and don’t be afraid to play with fun colors and patterns too.
What do you think of this outfit? would you wear it? Comment below to let me know 🙂
As always, thank you for visiting and have a great weekend.
Even though Minnesota is pretty good at playing bipolar during this time of the year, I have to admit that it’s starting to feel more and more like Spring here; and I’m loving it!
What have you guys been up to? As you can imagine, I have been quite busy with life and, as much as I would want to be more frequent here, it’s just not that easy these days… With Mother’s around the corner, this weekend I plan to spend some much needed quality time with my family, and hopefully a couple of hours of “Me time” lol.
This baby blue sweater dress is quite a beauty but the picture didn’t really do justice to it. I have styled it differently in the winter with some white boots and white fur coat for a a network event and I got tons of compliments. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to take pictures the first time I styled but this time around I went a more casual and monochromatic route by pairing the dress with these baby blue sandals.
I did have a “what if” moment so in some of the shoots I added this oversized rose hair piece and I loved it. The color contrast was perfect and the hair piece added a nice fashionable touch to the dress.
What do you guys think?

As always, thank you for visiting and have a fabulous day.
Top of the morning to you beautiful people!
How is your week going? I have been extremely busy, booked and blessed; and I can only be grateful for the blessings. April is full of excitement: I have attended Fashion Week Minnesota class of 2022 Ambassador Mixer, and it was a lot of fun. Fashion Week Minnesota is in a few days and I’m looking forward to it. If you live in the Twin Cities and love Fashion, you should come enjoy the many shows they’re producing. The events are selling out really fast, but there are still a few tickets left for some of them. You can grab your ticket on Eventbrite.com or find the link in Fashion Week Minnesota’s bio on Instagram. I will see you there if you make it, otherwise make sure to follow my stories and posts on Instagram to catch all the behind the scenes.
On another note, I have been featured in Voyage Minnesota Magazine, last week and I shared the news on social media. Voyage Minnesota is a local magazine, part of the LA-based voyage group of magazines. Their mission is to promote moms and pops local creatives, artists and small businesses by providing a platform for these hidden gems and talents to share their stories in their own words.
It is such an honor to be featured, so if you are interested in learning a little bit about my story, go check it out and let me know what you think. You can find the link to the article HERE.
This past weekend I have had a chance to do some outdoor shoots – a first in a while and I think I like it. As promised, you will definitely be seeing a lot more Spring outfits. Which colors are you guys enjoying the most this season? This tier floral maxi dress is perfect for the season. It is currently sold out, but I linked a few similar below for you to shop.

As always, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
Love & Light,
Hello there friends.
I know… Spring is here, and here I am sharing another winter outfit with snow on the ground. If you’re in the Midwest, you might be a bit forgiving… Just kidding, I promise you guys that I will be catching up with the Spring train; and you all be seeing Spring Styles sooner than later.
I wore this white on white outfit a few weeks ago for a Sunday outing. “Comfort meets style” has been my kind of vibe and uniform lately; and honestly, it feels good to keep it laid back, especially in the busy life season I’m in now. I won’t lie, sometimes I miss putting together killer outfits for photoshoots, or going to events that call for “must post / must share” attires… but, like they say, there’s a season for everything; and I can’t wait to share what’s in this next season for me with you guys.
As always, thank you for visiting my blog.
