Seeing Red

Shop: Dress (one, two) | Wedges | Handbag | Lipstick | Earrings | Bracelet

Happy Independence Day America!! I thought this red dress was fitting for the holiday. What are your plans on this patriot day? Mine going to a pool party and cleaning, blah to the cleaning but it has to be done.

Front tie dresses have been very popular this summer and this one for me didn’t disappoint. The color,  the fit and the movement are perfect. It is light and flowy, great for a hot summer’s day. I paired it with large gold chandelier earrings, wedges, a red lip and a straw handbag. And how cute is this hammered copper cuff? Accessories can definitely help make an outfit.

Shop this look below and have a wonderful 4th of July.

Summer, Summer, Summertime

Happy Saturday and Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Who is already for it to officially be summer? Not that it doesn’t already feel like it. In the summer wearing dresses is my thing because they are so simple and easy, especially when it is extremely hot and humid outside. I am a fan of dresses that are airy and light, like this one dress in the post. It is super comfy and great for many occasions, such as work, date night and a get together with friends. I mean it is even appropriate to wear to church, it’s that versatile. Another reason I love this dress is because of the colors, pastels and neutrals. My summer accessories are a simple necklace, some hoops and sunglasses are a must. What is your favorite thing to wear this summer?

Home is the Key: Chico’s Basic Essential Slub Tee

My last blog post explain what the Home is the Key Campaign is all about (read that post here). It is a wonderful campaign with an amazing cause that works towards combating the affordable housing crisis here in the US. I have chosen to collaborating with them by showing off my style in this Chico’s Basic Essential Slub Tee. Chico’s and Chico’s FAS brand stores have partnered with Habitat for Humanity by allow their customers to donate in store and online to help with this cause. Each Chico’s FAS brand stores (White House Black MarketChico’s, and Soma Intimates) have chosen a product to donate all proceeds when purchased to Habitat from April 23-May 31. For Chico’s that item is their Basic Essential Slub Tee, which I am wearing in this post. It is truly the perfect tee because of its high low design that allows it to be longer in the back and shorter in the front, which is great for leggings or that half tucked look. The shirt is super comfortable and works well with jeans, liked I paired it here. I added some cute accessories, such as my legacy belt, beaded earrings and a clutch that showcases one of my favorite fruits, pineapple (which means hospitality and friendship). Style yours anyway you like, considering the tee can go with almost anything.

There are many ways to get involved with Home is the Key. Check out their website (here) for more information.

Not Yet Spring

Shop: Jacket | Leggings | Blouse | Purse | Shoes 

What is this weather doing? One day snow and freezing, the next day it feels like summer. When this happens it is hard to know how to dress. My suggestions is layers upon layers, it is the only way to get through the day. This transitional weather is just right for a thin leather jacket (which I like to call my going out jacket), paired with the right outfit its perfect. These faux leather leggings are my favorite and have been on heavy rotation during these colder weather days. With this layered look, I added a lot of textures, solids and patterns to the mix. When I pattern mix I like to stick to the same color or colors that compliment each other so it looks like a cohesive outfit. All in all this outfit is great to take from day to night. Whats your favorite all day outfit? Shop mine below.

Having A Staycation at the New Omni Louisville

A week ago I had the privilege of venturing around and staying at the new Omni Louisville (as a early birthday gift). The hotel did not disappoint. The interior design and architecture is definitely top notch. Not only are the rooms impeccable the restaurants, market, boutique, and speakeasy are a must even if you do not stay for the night. The hotel is complete with two dine-in restaurants, Neighborhood Services and Bob’s Steak and Chop House, both are well worth your time and money.  If you are just in the mood for a drink try The Library; a bar designed to look like a public library, or Pin + Proof; a speakeasy with a bowling alley (which is a lot of fun).
 Lets talk about the Fall City Market….I’m in love with this concept. It’s perfect…Heine Bros. (coffee shop for the non-locals), a wine shop, a flower shop, an actual grocery, and a couple different dining spaces to choose from. I mean you could quite easily spend a couple hours just in this space.
The Omni also has all the upscale amenities such as Mokara Spa, a state of the art gym, and a rooftop pool with a bar called The Water Company. It really has everything you need to enjoy a couple days off from the real world or host a big event, such as a wedding or conference. I am totally ready to move in. This is a possibility since they have luxury apartments (details here).
What do you wear for a staycation? Comfy casual, of course! As I did here. I took black leggings paired them with a bell sleeved sweatshirt (which are really the trend right now), and my favorite leopard print flats. What is your favorite staycation outfit? shop mine below.

It’s All About the Floral

Spring is always about the flowers, right?  Who is gearing up for the warm weather to come? This girl right here, I cannot wait! What is more perfect then a floral maxi for this time of year? It is so fitting because the blooms will be coming soon. This dress is from Agnes and Dora, it is super comfortable, as all their clothing are. I would size down in many of their pieces because they run big. I paired it with a belt to give myself more of a waist, which I think compliments it well. The belt buckle is an A for Alli of course! I accessorized wth a matching clutch, which I love. It is one of my favorites, and the taupe color goes with almost everything. Finished the look with gold bangles, a red lip and peep toe sandals.

What is going to be your favorite spring look? Shop mine below.

Pink is My Color

When you know your color, you know your color! I have always been a lover of hot pink and thought that it looked great on my skin tone, so that is why I had to embrace this super comfy and causal dress by Agnes & Dora. Pairing it with this navy vest made the bright pink color pop and these two colors together compliment each so well. During transition seasons and weather being unpredictable, over the knee boots are a must; which go great with this outfit. I always finish my outfits with some accessories: a pom pom necklace and a suede cross body pull it all together.
