FREE SPIRIT

August 24, 2015


Up until recently, I could not have imagined a day when going out was no longer about highest heels possible, and yet, this day has arrived. Flats have officially became my footwear of choice! 

I suppose this sudden change of heart is in large due to this Summer's soaring temperatures. Don't know about you guys, but comfort is pretty much my one and only concern in 100-degree weather! Or at least being as comfortable as I can possibly be:) 

Yet, what may have started as a simple nod to practicality, with time turned into a complete and utter commitment to the way flats complete outfits in a very free-spirited, nonchalant kind of way. And sure, I am a little late to the "I LOVE FLATS" party! But I think considering what a huge high-heel addict I truly am, better late than never!:) 


BASICALLY BLACK & WHITE

August 21, 2015

As much as I gush about my love of new things, the truth is, I really enjoy being in a committed relationship with more than a few things in my closet. Take this IRO blazer or Stuart Weitzman loafers for example, I've had them for about a year and a year and a half respectively and haven't looked back! Thinking about what it is that makes an item a time-tested favorite for me, I believe it's actually the combination of two things, i.e. looks and substance. Obviously when it comes to clothing or accessories they way they look is important, yet I find that how you feel when you wear that certain item plays an equally important part. If something doesn't feel good on, no matter how beautiful it is, it will inevitably end up in the back of your closet forgotten in favor of something a bit more comfortable. Well, at least that's how it is for me:) And so, when I find something that's beautiful inside and out ( and also possibly happens to work with 80-90% of everything I have in my closet ) I tend to hold on!:) 

SAN DIEGO BOAT TRIPPIN'

August 19, 2015


After spending the day sailing in San Diego recently, I realized two things. First, sail boat and I were made for each other and I could sail all day every day. In fact, I should probably make a sail boat my permanent home and wake up every morning to the sounds of waves and the smell of the ocean... Realistic? Probably not, but a girl can dream:)! Second, it is very difficult to achieve any degree of gracefulness ( since full on gingham skirt & top combo evokes exactly such a feeling ) while your husband is singing "I'm on the boat..." from Saturday Night Live. Yeah! That's my boy! Always serious:)! Despite his best efforts, we did manage to shoot a few presentable ones. So, I hope you enjoy:)!


GRAPHIC HEART

August 17, 2015


After wearing blazers and low-rise skinny jeans for what seems like an eternity, I felt like I was finally ready for a new uniform. While playing around with a few different jean styles I very quickly realized, nothing feels quite as right as a tucked in boxy tee and mid-rise skinnys! So good with pretty much any shoe style imaginable, from boots to stilettos, I also love the fact that you can easily dress this combo up or down. Worn with heels and a clutch, this combo feels very chic and fresh for night, but add a pair of flats and a cross-body bag and you got yourself a cute daytime look:) Basically, the possibilities are endless, and of course you know how much I enjoy that!:)


JUST JEWELS

Good morning and happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is going great so far! I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of some sparkly things making me very happy currently:) Hope you enjoy!

FAVORITE MAKE UP LOOK: BRONZED SKIN & CORAL LIPS

August 12, 2015

Since I've been getting quite a bit of emails asking about my make up, I thought it'd be a good idea to do a step-by-step instructional on how to re-create one of my favorite make up looks. The beauty of this particular look is that it's really simple to do and you can use your favorite products. 

I always recommend using really good brushes, like EcoTools ones for example. When it comes to make up, blending is everything, and good brushes really get the job done!:) Though I've used quite a few different brushes in the past, lately I've made a switch to EcoTools ones. Aside from the fact that they are made from eco conscious materials and are animal cruelty-free, something that's really important to me, they also  perform absolutely beautifully! Finally, and I am sure this will come as no surprise if you read my blog on regular basis, the reason why this is my go-to make up look is because it's super versatile. A great day-time look, you can wear it pretty much anywhere from work to school and everything in between:)
