Sunny winter days


           "Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots"

Heyyyy dolls, how's it going?

Ok I know i've been MIA for a while but with good reason.  LIFE!!! Sometimes it throws you loop holes and you have no choice but to keep going and be grateful.  I'm grateful!  Anyway, what better way to enjoy an 85 degree winter day than pulling on a mini skirt, a sleeveless tee and some chic sunglasses.  There's no better way!  We've been having such beautiful weather here in FL and i've been spending lots of time outdoors enjoying it with my lil man.  Wherever there's a body of water with beautiful scenery, that's where you'll usually find me just chilling.  It's like therapy for my soul, it calms my nerves.  Anyone else like that?  What calms you?

About the outfit:  I bought this skirt about 8 months ago while I was in the Caribbean and believe it or not this is my first time wearing it.  It baffles me as to why because i'm definitely in lust with it.  The petal hem and soft material is perfect for a spring or summer day.  Lucky me I get to wear it in winter.  Ok ok I know some of you are freezing so i'll quit rubbing it in.  I paired it with a no fuss tank top that I got on sale for $5 in the mens section at Macy's.  I adore it and I adore printed tank tops in general.  They're perfect for displaying your personality through clothing.  Finished off my look with a pair of comfortable heels and my go to sunglasses.  I threw on the trench to keep it classy not trashy because the skirt is a tad bit see through.  Uh-ha so it just hit me why I hadn't worn it before...LOL.  Hope you dolls enjoy my look.  Leave your links in the comments and i'll be sure to check out your sites.  I'm so ready to get back into my blogging after this world wind of a few months i've had.

Polka dot pants


Hey dolls, how's it going?

This is my first look for the new year and definitely one of my faves.  All thanks to these amazing shoes.  I typically don't get very excited about H&M's designer collabs (except the Anna Dello Russo collab...I was devastated when I found out the H&M nearest me wouldn't carry the collection).  In my opinion it's just a bunch of overpriced items that doesn't appeal to the masses which was clearly the case with their latest collab with Maison Martin Margiela.  To this day, almost 2 months after its release, my local store still has a considerably large amount of stock available.  Now this means the black friday shoppers passed up on them....the after christmas shoppers...the coupon holders and all the end of year shoppers.  SMH!  Avant-garde in a store like H&M was never a good business decision.  The decision makers at H&M must be REALLY good at selling their brand to get this designer to agree to a collaboration.

Discounted to prices below $30 and shoppers still aren't buying these items.  I think they should just donate the pieces to homeless shelters, at least that way they'll be of great use.  I personally wasn't attracted to the clothing items with the exception of the mirrored leggings which sold out pretty quickly.  The shoes on the other hand, I LOVED.  They offered me the type of uniqueness I typically look for in a shoe.  It was like rocket science for me deciding between those worn here and the black bootie with the same heel.  As you see these won but just because the booties were a size too small for me..HAHA!  I was sooo willing to squeeze my little toes in there.  Now it's important to note that I do LOVE these shoes but there was NO WAY I was forking over the initial $199 price tag they came with.  I, of course, waited until they went on sale which I was positive they would.  The day after christmas most of the items were discounted down to $30 including these shoes.  YAY!!!!  However, I do feel sorry for the people who stood in line and paid full price for these items.  In an economy like this I don't care how much money you have.  Shopping smart is a MUST.  Sooner or later everything (ok maybe not everything) goes on sale.  Wishing everyone a productive week! =)
