Printed pants


Hi dolls how's it going?

I'm literally back from the dead after suffering from the flu for the past week.  I urge everyone to get your flu shots (I didn't) because the flu is no joke.  It's miserable and I know we don't like feeling miserable...just fashionable.  Today I was finally able to put something on, other than sweats, and I felt GREAT.  Back in my element and ready to put that bad memory behind me.

I headed out to run errands and a few other things so I opted for a more comfortable look (not that I don't always go for comfortable looks).  Let me tell you, I LOVE these printed pants I found at H&M last month.  So much so that I bought them in the two colors available.  They're great for dressing up or down (more down) and i'm obsessed with the way the horizontal lines create an illusion of thicker legs.  I may be the only one seeing this but just let me enjoy my moment...=).  I could have paired this with any of my solid color tops (or even printed ones if I was feeling risky) but decided to go the comfort route with an oversized sweater which i'm obsessed with btw.   It's rare to find stuff in Zara for only 20 bucks so when I do I almost always impulsively go for it.  If I remember correctly it also came in yellow and white.  I really want the white one but i'm sure it'll be gone by now.  Anyway, I threw on my cute and comfortable jeweled tone pumps and a (somewhat) matching bag to complete the look and I was out the door.

Let me know what you think about this look and how you would style these pants.  I'm always happy to read your thoughts. =)

Love always,

Hey loves, i'm back so soon.

I must admit I wasn't aware of the impact of halloween until I moved to the states.  I never really got dressed up but all my college friends would get excited every time halloween was approaching.  I'm guessing to them it was the one night they can go outside themselves and be whoever or whatever they wanted to be.  Or maybe it was just another excuse to party...who knows?!!  I'm ok with it as long as it's good-safe-fun.  However, most of the costumes i've seen have been pretty basic and to be honest a lot of girls wore the same look.  I swear i'm so over the naughty cops and poison ivy costumes.  It wasn't until I joined the blogging world that i've seen costumes that really blew me away.  Khatu from iamkhatu.blogspot.com actually makes her own costumes every year and the craftsmanship is always amazing.  I can't decide whether I loved her peacock costume or her rendition of Lady Gaga's meat dress more.  You guys should check it out!  Now I know not everyone can handle a sewing machine or aren't as creative as Khatu is.  Some of us are really not that patient either.  I know I definitely lack the sewing machine skills but i'm working on it ;-).  Some other bold and creative costumes i've seen were the avatar costumes.  I mean I personally wouldn't leave my house just covered in paint but hey if you got it flaunt it.  I really don't know what I would dress up as but i'm definitely feeling Lady Gaga and all her braveness.  I'm considering these two options from Halloween fancy dress.

I'm really feeling my options but they're definitely not as creative as those I came across while browsing this pinterest page There's a whole bunch of unique and not to mention hilarious costume ideas on here...haha.  My favorites were the swiffer system and mud lady costume and the toilet and plumber.  Now that's freakin creative and not to mention unique because really who else would spend their day being a filthy toilet?  Be sure to check it out, I promise you'll get a good laugh.  Plus there's a lot of cute kiddy costumes. 

What about you guys?  What are you dressing up as?  Let me know, I promise I won't steal your ideas!


I'm backkkkk


Hey loves, how've you been?

Oh how i've missed typing on here with this bright ass white background staring at me as I ramble on and on about nothing really.  I LOVE it!  It's been almost 3 months since I last blogged (boooo) and seriously THAT SUCKS!!!!  Those of you who actually read this knew that I traveled back home to the Caribbean for a few months.  I got so caught up in life and what was happening around me both mentally and physically that I lost track of my blogging.  My family and I have been going through some stressful stuff but don't get me wrong, as you can tell from my last post I had a GREAT trip.  Life is truly a blessing and although you may hit road blocks along the way, there's still a LOT to be grateful for.  I'm not one to open up or seek pity so I try to lead a positive life and keep it moving no matter what.  Leading a positive life to me starts with surrounding myself with things that make me happy.  Maybe that's why I have so many obsessions...LOL.  A girls gotta keep her mind busy.  I highly recommend a book called "The Power" by  Rhonda Byrne to people who are interested in living a more positive life.  Most of you should have heard of this; it's the follow up book to it's successful predecessor "The Secret".  It reads a bit redundant but you have to really think about the message.  Let me know if any of you have read it, i'll love to hear your thoughts.

So let's seeeee....what's happened since i've been gone? **thinking** nothing much has changed with me fashion wise.  I'm still obsessed with just about everything fashion related; still hate fashion rules: still very much attracted to everything colorful; my shoe collection has grown a little (not too much); my wardrobe has expanded (i'm over trying to control this); my favorite basketball team won the championship (GOOOO HEATS); my one year blog anniversary has passed (=( sad I didn't get to post); very much in love and still engaged (the movie 5 year engagement will have nothing on me..haha I kid); still don't have my DSLR (sad face); still living in Florida and the rest i'm sure will come to me some other time.  I know I know, I act like i've been gone for a year...LOL.

About the look: I was feeling like a princess today so I wore my tutu style pleated Jones & Jones skirt and paired it with a black open-back sweater (sorry no pics of the back =(, maybe next time) to give it a more fall feel although the weather here in Florida is super warm.  I personalized the look by adding a baseball cap and my new favorite Zara booties.  I've developed an obsession for gold and anything gold trimmed.  This just in time to keep me in trend since metallics are on the menu this fall.  Black and gold have become one of my favorite color combos and I hope you love it as much as I do.

I REALLY appreciate you sticking around and supporting my blog.  Thanks to the sweet readers who sent me emails while I was gone.  You're the best!



I noticed I squint so much in my pics.  I literally can't see without sunglasses.  Maybe I should have put them on. =)




Look at this beautiful earth God has given us.  Just give me a good book and bottled water and i'll spend hours here.
