Once Upon a Time…

There was a sweet little blush tee with teeny tiny sparkles and I simply felt in love….that was about 12 years ago, when I arrived to the States! I was completely broke and that little tee was a total splurge. For starters it was from Express and I could only afford Old Navy and Fashion Cents, well regardless I can honestly say it was a major hit, at least for me. The tee still exists and I still rock it, it’s neutral and basic yet adds that much charm to my outfits! Here are two looks I wore recently wearing this cutie :)

This week is been a bit crazy, we have friends from Brazil staying with us so most likely I won’t be hanging around here this week! I hope you enjoy the post and see you soon :)

Bananas for Stripes!

Oh goodness this was one of those outfits that are so obvious yet so unexpected. I went out for a sushi lunch with my BFF on Saturday and somehow we ended up at TJMaxx and Home Goods, oh my Lordy you can probably imagine the outcome of this adventure…lots of goodies! Hehehehe

photo 5 (1)Starting with this cute Rebecca Minkoff yellow neon rounded baggie, Kris kept on saying I needed this bag for my looks and I bought into it (they also had a Valentino wallet that looks Ah-Mazing but I couldn’t go there…anyway I loved the way this look turned out and I think the bag was the cherry on top! What do you think?!

Birthday Special: OOTD + Makeup & Hair Tutorial

One more year is gone or one new year is starting, I like the latest! July was an incredible month for me (lucky 7 strikes again!), so much happening and so many amazing news. From our growing relationship with God, to kiddos, to hubs, to my job and my passions, everything seems to be finally falling into place, the right place that is. And I couldn’t ask for a better birthday gift!

Soooo, I gathered my #ootd photos along with the videos on the makeup and hair I wore for my big day and have them all here for you in one sweet post, enjoy :)

Lean, Mean, Boyfriend Shorts Machine!

It might be lean but certainly not mean and as far as a boyfriend shorts machine…yeah I guess we can say that! I love and wear them all the time but I like to spice up the look with a fancy looking piece here and there, this is the latest look I put together with my BF shorts and what I’m most excited about is the structured little Black & White Blazer from my most fave designer Rachel Roy!

photo 4photo 2 This look is really based on the basics of a white tank top and a pair of cut off shorts, these happen to be slouchy (which I love to add a bit of “I don’t care” attitude!). You know me, I like to dress up but I don’t like to look like I’m trying too hard,  and any time you throw a pair of BF shorts to the mix it’s like getting an automatic cool and edgy vibe to your outfit. So, I’m using and abusing of the shorts while it’s nice out and for the cooler days, nothing like a nice little blazer, sweater, cardi and even a sweet leather jacket to pair up with your shorts, take your pick and rock those babies!

Missoni Baby, Missoni

It had been a long time since I last wore my Missoni for Target little knit dress so I thought going to brunch to see my friend Karin who’s pregnant and came from NYC to spend a few days here in Indy was the perfect occasion to wear that again, I was surprisingly pleased with the look especially wearing it with the oh-so-pretty Kate Spade blue bag (that goes perfectly with the blue from the dress). My BFF’s also tagged along for the brunch and were equally stylish, so here’s a few shots for you!

Making a Splash Pin Up Style + Giveaway!

Going through Fashion school I had a friend name Danisha, think of a bubbly little lady who giggled pretty much all throughout class and was always jamming to a popular song. That’s Danisha, no wonder why I was automatically drawn to seat by her and obviously had endless belly laughs and more often than not it was hard to concentrate in some of the classes we had together. Long story short  Danisha partnered up with another classmate Krista and founded Poppy Seeds – fashions that pop! Danisha is the Owner and Head Designer and Krista was the Assistant Designer and Patternmaker for a while, as of now Danisha runs the company by herself. What I love about her bathing suit brand is the retro style, I feel like the market is saturated with either teeny weeny bikinis or rather old-fashioned and dated looking suits for the more curvy ladies, Poppy Seeds suits are classy and fit all body types, making the skinny or the more plump ladies feel good about themselves with no need to bare it all!

PoppySeeds6 PoppySeeds5

I’m wearing the Lena Yellow Polka Dot gathered high waist bikini, it’s a style that is flattering if you have a bit of a tummy sticking out too ladies, just classy and timeless :)

PoppySeeds4 PoppySeeds7
I love to wear styles like these to lounge, have a glass of wine at the end of a summer afternoon while admiring the view…yes I’m here dreaming! Hahahaha hey it’s good to dream! I honestly was thinking about having a full on makeup and hair pin up style but the suit already spoke for all of it and at the end I just felt like being as natural as possible to let this baby shine, so how do you like this guys?!

PoppySeeds2 PoppySeeds1
So now, what’s in for you?! We’ll be running a giveaway that will stay open for one week, the winner will be chosen next Monday and the suit will be made for that person’s size to order!

The prize: The Perry High Waist suit, click here to see this guy from many angles! A follow on Instagram and a like on facebook Poppy Seeds page is required! A comment on this post will earn you extra points!

Good luck and wishes of a fab week!
