Falling for Fall

Dress: Forever 21 | Cover: Forever 21 | Shoes: Zara (similar) | Clutch: H&M

Labor day weekend is upon us, and I'm officially falling for fall. 
Will burgundy ever not be a go-to color for the season? I can't imagine...

Have a safe long weekend!

Life Changes & Birthday Celebrations

Just wanted to drop a line here to show my guy some love on his birthday today! We're literally in the middle of a life-changing week  so many exciting things* are happening – so what better week for him to celebrate his birthday?

Dwayne, I love you forever! May this year be your best yet.


*I hope to share more on the blog soon... Stay tuned.

Tee: Forever 21 (similar) | Skirt: H&M | Shoes: Shoemint (similar) | Clutches: Love,Cortnie

I couldn't decide between the black & white clutch and the bright yellow statement clutch. Sometimes I want to go the simple, minimal route; other times I want to stand out. I suppose being indecisive is human nature, 
even when it comes to style. 

Which clutch do you prefer with this look?

Dress: H&M | Shoes: Forever 21 | Clutch: H&M

Dresses are my favorite. Contrary to popular belief (since I love clothes so much), the less I have to think about when putting an outfit together, the better. So, dresses are my go-to. Pair a simple dress with some pointed toe heels and a sleek clutch, and voila!  the perfect (and easiest) ladylike outfit.

Put That On Everything

Dress: H&M | Blazer: H&M | Shoes: Zara | Clutch: Bijuju Boutique

I love a good blazer, but there's something about a white blazer that makes me want to 
put it on with everything.

Even though we don't have the pleasure of experiencing the true seasons in terms of weather where I am, I'm ready for fall and so are the stores. I did a little bit of light shopping over the weekend and picked up some transitional summer-to-fall pieces that I think will mix and match well with items I currently have. I'm looking forward to putting together some new ideas.

Dancing to My Own Beat

Dress: Eliza J (try this) | Blazer: Marshalls (very similar) | Shoes: Zara (similar) | Clutch: Thrifted (similar)

Don't ask me what I was dancing to out there... by myself... at the park... just me, my camera and my tripod.
I don't have the answer, but I think I'll keep dancing.

A Modest Take // Less is More

Less is More

Crisp whites, bold blacks and shades of blues and greys have ruled 2014 summer palettes. 
Sometimes, simple just stands out more. 

Here are some of my picks for a modest take on the "less is more" trend:

Denim x Denim

Shirt: Target (very similar - on sale!) | Skirt: J.Crew (similar) | Shoes: Forever 21

I took an impromptu break from the blog last week as you may or may not have noticed. Between the non-stop rainy, humid, unbearably hot weather and the many new and exciting things happening all at once in my life, I had to take a breather. Did I mention the heat? It's been so disrespectful. Nevertheless I live; yet not I because it has to be the Good Lord causing me to make it through this summer. Whew!

Denim on denim is the name of the game today. I spiced it up with a dash of leopard and red which can make any ensemble interesting. Trust me.

Looking through my plans for posts this month, I'm realizing that simple, "spiced up" outfits are a part of the style evolution I'm going through. Hope you don't mind.
