Checking out swimwear this weekend and came across some really great deals at H&M! The style and the pricing is great! Most are priced separately, but I saw bikini bottom options for as low as $4.95 with matching tops as low as $9.95, including pieces in the new Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in HM line . See below for my fave looks and here for more styles. Love the top print the most...but the other styles are very flattering for curvy shapes like mine. H&M is also carrying limited styles in the plus category…see them here! Have a great day :-)!
Happy Monday all!! I hope your weekend was pleasant :-)! I was busy this weekend on a few projects that I'm working on, as well as, starting the packing process for my birthday trip next week. I pretty much have everything needed, but do want to get a few more things, e.g. these mirrored sunglasses I keep seeing.
I first saw these a while back on bloggers like Aimee Song from Song of Style (see 2nd pic) and Andy Torres from Style Scrapbook (see 3rd pic). My faves are the red, blue and black versions but there are also other color options like orange, pink, green and yellow to choose from. I would definitley pick a color that works with your skin tone. Also, if you're not sure which color to get you can always opt for the classic black or even a look for less style in the colored versions. I never invest too much into trends, they come and go, and my investments are usually saved for classics. However, I personally love these options as an update to shapes and styles we've seen over and over, so will try this trend out! Below, I posted some style inspirations found on pinterest today!
Check them out and let me know what you think :-)!!
***See here for low to high end style options***
Pretty much everything I've purchased these past few months have been in the coral and turq family. With the exception of some items in yellow, red and cobalt...I'm literally overloaded with this color palette right now. I can't complain though, cause it's been working for me! Adding color where I normally would have went for a white, black or tan. Today for example, I'm wearing a lightweight coral tunic from Mango, with black skinnies, short khaki trench with black faux leather sleeves and leopard print loafers. I'm a minimalist when it comes to getting dressed, nothing too over the top for me...so I have to up the ante with colors and prints. Old me would have worn all black with the leopard print shoes and left it at that....lol! I'm loving the options above, you can always add color with denim, accessories and jewelry. I'm especially loving the Samantha Wills jewelry...she has an amazing collection and the Bohemian Bardot ring is my fave piece. Its comes in all these really cute sorbet colors, like the pink and yellow that you normally wouldn't find in jewelry.
I don't think I even need to tell you why I’m in love with this designer collection! I first heard about Stella Jean while checking out fellow blogger Tiger Tem's site and immediately fell in love. Stella Jean is an Italian based designer of Italian and Haitian descent and her diverse background has inspired this seamless collaboration of cultures. This collection is prints galore and the styling is AMAZING! I would have never thought to style and match some of these prints together but I’m so glad someone did and opened me to a whole new world!! Of course, this is my inspiration for this summer. I’m looking for dresses, cropped pants and tops in amazing prints like these. Wish me luck and enjoy your day everyone :-)!!

Happy Monday all! It's getting down to the wire for me as far as getting ready for this trip and I need to get started!I went to Mango last week on my lunch break and found a lot of inspiration on what to wear in PR. Im not going to go overboard with the shopping, so a huge money saving tactic for me is to instead incorporate a few key trends with pieces I already have.

I'll start packing what I have and then fill in what I still need; I rather spend that extra money on things to do. The only things I really need for this trip is 2 more swimsuits and 2 dresses for when I go out. One outfit idea, I posted from Topshop the other day, is a definite dress option. As far as my wants, the easiest and most affordable way to add in is with accessories. I love these options from Mango, especially the jewelry and studded sandals! Now its just a matter of narrowing down my choices:-)....enjoy your day everyone!
Hope your weekend is going well everyone...I just spotted these really cute T- Strap heels on Sole Sociey's website and had to share! I love all the colors and trying to decide which one to get, so need your help here. I tried pairing the heels with some bags on the site to help make my decision easier but now want all! These are honestly great for the season but can easily move forward to the next....decisions, decisions! Which one's your fave? Comment below and let me know :-)!

It’s been a while since I posted on here. In the past few months, I’ve been extremely busy with work, working on a new business venture AND helping plan for my brother’s wedding later this year. I also have been contemplating how to move forward with this blog, if I should continue, etc…. because I haven’t had the mental time to actually sit and write.
I did a bit of spring cleaning on some posts this week though, changed my layout and that has helped me feel inspired again. My main concern being that I wanted to make sure whatever I did put out on this blogsphere platform was relevant to both me and you.
In the next few weeks, I’m heading to Puerto Rico with friends to celebrate my 35th. I’ve been in an island state of mind since I booked this trip and am super excited, but haven't started shopping yet!! I've been more focused on working out and eating right but lately with all the new patterns and colors I see online and in stores, I'm ready to finally shop. Plus, I lost some weight so that's always a good reason to buy something new :-)!!
A year ago wearing bright colors was a stretch for me...now, I’m constantly on the hunt for prints in everything! I am really loving this top and skirt from TopShop and would definitely wear it together just like this! And these Coach sandals are another fave for me as I can see myself wearing these pretty much everywhere! This particular look might just be my b-day dinner look as I’m still not sure if I’m hitting a club on my actual birthday.
My main goal for any island trip is just hitting the beach everyday, laying in the sun and just having fun! I'll keep you guys posted on what my picks for this trip will be in the next week! Enjoy your day :-)!
One of the many sites I've been visiting the past few weeks is SoleSociety.com. I'm especially loving the fact that there are some really great finds here and great pricing. None of my picks here are over $69.95! These are some of my faves from the site that would be perfect for now and later. Check em out!

I've been shopping around the past few weeks and noticed tons of bold black and white graphics from designers like Marc Jacobs to retailers like H&M. Image inspiration from above is from the Marc Jacobs Spring/summer 2013 collection, which was full of dramatic black and white graphics! I loved every bit of the show and am not surprised to see stripes everywhere for spring! (If you haven't seen the show..see link above to view the whole collection)
I found tons of styles that are reminiscent of the collection at great price points. Perfect for the upcoming spring season, you can pair any of the styles here with basic blacks and white or bold hues like reds, oranges and bluesl! What do you think of my picks??
