Love River Island <3

River Isalnd is definitely my favorite brand out there. I enjoy how they mix the different patterns and come up with a brilliant piece. I own a few of their pieces, and I would like to add these babies to my closet. The print T’s are so in now. They would look great paired with a blazer, some skinny jeans, and a wedge. The peplum top is everywhere these days. I love how it is sleeveless. That dress.. Oh that dress is beautiful. It combines my two favorite prints: leopard & houndstooth. I l Love River Island &lt;3
I own a similar dress; however it is sleeveles, and let me tell you, it hugs the body in the right spots and accentuates your curves. The perfect fit for me!

I recently bought 3 amazing items from Zara. Oh Em Gee, I cannot get over my neon blazer!
I am sure this particular piece will be worn to death. Oh, and those heels I got, I cannot get over them either. They are very feminine, yet edgy. They are very sexy!

Take an advice from me, and run to Zara. They have the most amazing pieces for this summer!

It will be available in around 140 stores worldwide and online on October 4, 2012. The collection features jewelry, sunglasses, shoes, and bags!

Mid Way Through Outfit of the Day

It is Wednesday everybody! What that means? The weekend is two days away 🙂

Since these posts seem to be the most popular, I decided to share my outfit with you for the second day in the row. Disclaimer: the skirt might be too short for such a “conservative” environment, but I am still in my twenties and eventually, one day, the co-workers around me will either get used to it, or even retire! Having a huge age gap, between co-workers, creates such a difficulty especially when it comes to fashion. Anyways, here is what I wore to work today:

Image

Bag from Asos.com, Bracelets from H&M, Blanc Bomb Ring by JewelMint, Chain from my Etsy Store, Coat from a small Boutique, Cardigan from Forever21, Top from UrbanOutfitters, Skirt from UrbanOutfitters, Flats from TJMaxx.

Happy Wednesday!

2012 Spring Trends

We all can feel the spring approaching. As I was driving to work this morning, I noticed how it wasn’t as dark anymore. The sun actually came out earlier than what it had been doing for the past few months. This observation instantly drew a smile on my face and lifted my mood (I am sure we all can agree that driving to work, at 6am in the morning, is not the ideal thing to do!).

Spring is my favorite season of all, especially when you live in Virginia. Virginia has one of the worst winters (well not this year, at least we haven’t seen anything yet), and it has one of those nasty hot and sticky humid summers; therefore, spring and fall are the best seasons in this state. However, spring always wins!

Spring = bright sunny skies + a nice breeze + Easter + Blooms + Cherry Blossom in DC + My Birthday! On top of all that, this year Spring 2012 means Pastel colors + Neon colors+ A-symmetrical skirts + Spikes and studs + Chunky Chain Accessories + tiny jewelry pieces + Brogue shoes + loafers + and another trend that is going to help us transition from winter to Spring and stick with us for a while is the Ankle Boot!

Here are a few ankles boots that you can put your hands on. I have 1, 2, 3 as my favorites. I think they would look extra cute with a bodycon mini neon skirt, a flowy pastel sheer shirt, a couple layers of chain necklaces, a stackable rings, and finally a subtle eye look with a bold lip color!

Happy Spring!

Cruise Outfit

In about a month from now, I will be on a cruise to the Bahamas!

This would be our second cruise trip (Our = the Hubby and I). Our first cruise was last year in May for our Honey Moon. It was such a wonderful experience. It was a treat after a whole year of stressful and frustrating at time wedding planning. Cruising is wonderful as you get to see new ports and cities stress free. You do not need to plan or worry about a place to stay, a place to eat, or a spot to visit. Everything is planned and done for you, all you have to do is pick what appeals to you, your taste, and your interests.

Though, one thing you have to plan is your outfits. I am one of those people who always over-packs! Well, I believe over packing is better than under-packing, especially when you are “stuck” on a ship. Therefore, this is the time where I start thinking of the outfits I will be taking with me. There will be a mixture of formal nights, and other casual nights. Therefore, I have to plan accordingly. This will be my first outfit I am thinking of taking.I will be posting the different outfits I am taking on the cruise as I plan them.

Enjoy this for now. Click on the image to find more about each piece.

Go Green!

I know we haven’t gotten one single decent snow storm yet, but I like to keep thinking how Spring is approaching. I am looking forward to that. Spring has got to be my favorite season!

In spring everything turns green, flowers and trees blossom, life returns to the nature, our mood gets lifted, and our days become brighter!

I always associate Spring with pastel colors, my birthday, Easter, and finally the color Green! What a better color to symbolize the Spring season than Green?

Green is definitely a cheerful lively color that symbolizes life and nature. It has this positive energy when looking at it, and it brings this sense of relaxation to your mind as well. I love Green! It has been one of my top favorite colors.

Now, let’s talk fashion. Green color is big in fashion trends this year/spring. Especially, lime green shades and neon greens. They are quite fabulous colors! I have so many favorite pieces I am planning on purchasing soon. Seriously, what a better color to welcome the spring?

Enjoy the little inspiration board I put together. You can click on it to direct you to the individual pieces.

Valentine’s Pink

Usually we associate red color with Valentine’s day. Well, not this year!

This year has been the year for bright neon colors, and the Hot Pink color has definitely proven to be the color of choice for many clothing articles and accessories out there. I am not a pink girl (shocking!), but I am definitely a Hot Pink fan. It makes everything look sophisticated, glamorous, pretty, yet edgy!

Hot Pink is definitely one of my favorite colors. It is such a beautiful color and it brings glow to my skin. It definitely suits my olive skin tone. If you are not brave enough to rock a Hot Pink outfit, well, this Valentine’s day should be your excuse! Everything out there is in that Hot Neon Pink color, go grab a piece and rock out wearing it on February the 14th.

Happy Hot Pink Day!

I cannot help it but..

I cannot help it, but keep looking and searching for vibrant color clothing items. I guess its how they say, you wont know the meaning of something until you lose it. Same here, I think because its the winter season, you start to see less and less of those vibrant colors, you start noticing browns, blacks, and greys all around and surrounding you. Well I miss Color, I miss it so much and want it back in my life! Image
