Off The Shoulder And White Crop Denim

I hope y’all had an amazing week! I sure had a busy one. I’d like to say that’ll take it slow this weekend but who am I kidding? With summer rolling in there is so much to do around the house. I am working on a fun project for the blog and hoping to finish painting the pergola in the backyard. Talking about summer, how cute is this outfit? I think it is the perfect combo for both spring and summer. It features two trends I am loving this season – The cropped pants and off the shoulder. You may think, I am a bit bias because I am the off the shoulder girl, but who wouldn’t want to show a little skin especially when it’s hot outside. Read More »

DIY Cover Up With Pom Poms ( kaftan)

How to make a pom pom cover-up kaftan- Chic Punta Cana all inclusive all adult resort

I few weeks before my trip to Punta Cana With Sunwing vacations, I started looking around for cover ups. I wanted a fun and colorful one that I could wear both in and out of the beach. Sadly, the ones that really caught my eyes did not come in my size. I am sure you know the rest of the story. Frustration and anger started to get the best of me. To think that in 2017 we still can’t find what we love when it comes to clothing is unbelievable. With my minimal sewing skills, I made one for myself and this is the result. It was inspired by this Pom-pom Trim Beach Cover-up that Merrick Art made a few years back. Check out her post for all the instructions on how to make your own cover up. Feel free to also check these stores on Etsy  for some options. Read More »

Spring Wish List Ft Primaala

 

Happy Monday Loves ! I hope you’ve managed to survive another week of extreme cold. I kept myself busy all weekend with house work and I am also in the midst of redoing our guest bedroom (pictured) which will be revealed on the blog soon.

Since I’ve transitioned to a full-time blogger, my days can run anywhere from dropping the kids to school, brand meetings, pulls to events. The less I think about what to wear in the morning the better. That’s why I am adding more classic, timeless and quality pieces to my wardrobe. Read More »

I am recycling this post from last year. Unfortunately I’ve been busy with life this week and did not have time to shoot any of my outfits for the blog. There are so many plus size holiday dresses available right now. It’s always important to buy pieces that would last you beyond the party season. I can’t tell you how much I love this fit and flare Dress. Unfortunately, it only goes up to a size 20. I have linked to Fit and Flare dresses below and also other dresses you can wear now and later.

I’ve always been a fan of the layered look! Layering is the actually the best part of getting dressed around this time of the year. On days when it’s not too cold, my go-to for fall is this beautiful long cardigan. It’s so cozy and soft! I love pairing it with long sleeve tees and jeans or in this case my super cute faux leather skirt. This laid back look is perfect for weekends. I wish you all a beautiful Monday. Read More »

Casual Chic Fall Look Idea

Happy Friday everyone ! I hope had a great week. I spent my week working, attending a few events and of course doing homework with the kids. If you ever want to see what my week looks like behind the scenes, make sure to follow me on Snapchat. That is where all the craziness happens. I am rocking a very casual yet very chic Fall look today.  A long sleeve tee is one of my absolute Fall must haves. I grabbed this same shirt in blue and red stripes during a recent trip to Old Navy. If you wait for a good sale you might be able to them for almost nothing. Oh ! you can also find great Fall look ideas on my Pinterest board. Read More »
