Black & White: Summer Look


My 2 favorite colors, can you tell? I still feel very daring wearing white pants, as a clumsy person can you blame me? I am waiting for the moment where I sit in something and walk 5 blocks before someone says something. A fear any one would have wearing white pants but never the less I still love them dearly. Previously I mentioned this top in another post where I had it in white… honestly I am glad I purchased both. I can mix and match these looks as much as I want. These jeans are mid rise, normally I prefer a high rise jean with this type of top but I am glad I went outside of my comfort zone. Pairing it with my favorite accessories – the Celine sunglasses and my new Rebecca Minkoff bag. Wearing these items as much as I can for 2 reasons: I love them both and I want to get my moneys worth.

As much I try to add my color to my wardrobe I can’t help but going back to these 2 colors.. what are you favorites for the summer?

Reversible Florals


Florals for spring? So ground breaking! Any one else sick of hearing/reading that phrase? Yeah me too. As true as it may be, the weather lately has not been matching the “April showers brings May flowers” phrase. May had plenty of up and down weather, now that it is June I am waiting for consistent sunshine. Without sunshine I get rather depressed, vitamin D is a very strong vitamin lemme tell ya!

When I first spotted this top at Dynamite it made me excited for the warmer weather and the reversible feature. At first I didn’t notice the large sign that said “REVERSIBLE TOP” on the rack, after trying it on I knew this would be something I could wear at work and on the weekends – bang for you buck. After walking out of the dressing room it finally hit me that I could turn the shirt around and quickly have a day to night look. This is what happens when you are constantly on the go!!


This top incorporates a few different trends here. We have the cold shoulders which has continued from the fall/winter into spring/summer trends and the lace up trend as well. I adore both of them! The lace up can be part of the front or the back… much like a mullet you can be business in the front and party in the back 🙂

Quick belated OOTD: Dynamite jumpsuit


Recently I had my little cousin’s Christening – I saw this jumpsuit in Dynamite and fell in love. Not only was the color something new (well at least this shade of blue) but I LOVED the slits in the front! It was the perfect in between of pants and the flow of a dress. Anything with wide legs also is a favorite of mine. It gives my body shape a straighter look when the focus becomes on my waist rather than the curves of the lower half of my body. What are you favorite styled jumpsuits?


Can’t forget about the necklace… another find in Dynamite 😘

Saturday style

Family is everything to me. The past few weekends have been filled with plenty of family fun, and some not so great weather. The weather kept postponing any kind of days I wanted to take some pictures. So here I am posting some pictures I quickly took at my little cousins dance recital. These 3 little girls have a special place in my heart, there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for them… give them candy, unnecessary gifts, letting them play with my expensive makeup… no matter what I can’t seem to say no to these cute faces. Their mom asked me to do their makeup for the big day since every time I see them they scream “COUSIN SARAH DO MY MAKEUP!” They sat perfectly for me and looked absolutely beautiful!! I may be bias on this but they really are pretty damn cute 🙂 Before the show started I was able to snap some photos of my look for the day…


My outfit for the day I wanted to be comfortable but also stylish.. it was a dance show I was seeing after all. The top I got from Dynamite which I really loved. Ruffles are very much trending right now and I loved the look of this top! They only had a medium in the white and a small would’ve fit me a little bit better but I couldn’t pass up this purchase. The jeans from Zara are very stretchy, when I am sitting they feel a little bit tighter.. the more I wear them the more comfortable I feel. 


This watch. It has a story. I have been coveting this and waiting for it to be back in stock… I am not a watch person or into a ton of crazy accessories, simplicity is my main focus. The watch is just a quick simple accessory to my look, loving the all black look of the watch with the hint of gold. Forever wearing black and gold and white together. My bracelet was purchased at the Create & Cultivate conference after I had my aura “read.” Onyx is a form of protection from negativity… anything that will help deflect any negative vibes. Positive vibes only are allowed in my world!

In Between Weather: Layers


Layers. Its key to almost every in between season. Layers are great to wear because if it gets warmer you can take the bulkier layers off and still be comfortable. Or if it gets a little colder you can add the layers on to stay a little warmer. I’ve been seeing so many bloggers layer looks especially with slip dresses and slip tops. Although I only have a slip dress, I didn’t want to waste money by purchasing another top that would just be in my closet for one specific look. Converting my slip dress into a slip top was easy.. I just tucked it into my jeans. The material is thin enough where it wouldn’t bulk up and look funny which made life so much easier. I recently got this simple top from Zara, of course I have it in black too. I am trying my best to stay clear of buying black clothing items since I have SO MANY already. This was a compromise since gray is in the same color family of my favorite color to wear.

I wanted to keep with the trends of the fishnets under the jeans look, it was some what strange to wear. Despite the fishnets being thin, it is still another layer… underneath your jeans. My jeans are ripped at the knee so its a cute little pop that you’d see when I’m walking or sitting down. Its a fun little surprise to my outfit that most might not see immediately. Wearing my trusty leather jacket draped over my shoulders has been my go to look for the past 2 seasons (I’m counting winter as almost over with that quick warm weather we got). This changes the entire look and I highly recommend trying it out… just not walking around on a cold winter day. It looks cute, but doesn’t feel so cute as your getting a blast of cold winter air in your face and chest.


Accessorizing this was rather easy and I wanted to keep things simple. My velvet choker added another fabric style to the mix and my Dynamite layered necklace. Of course I had to wear my Quay Australia Vivenne glasses. I love them dearly. Also because it was so windy out my eyes were tearing… it was so bad that my liquid liner was smudging terribly and my makeup was making its way onto my contact lenses! Not sure if this has ever happened to any one else before but it has happened to me way too often that I know what to do. And that was to cut my photoshoot short and fix my lenses haha!
