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!
I went shopping this weekend, but didn’t get too much as I’ve been shopping a lot lately! Pictured above are some of my latest buys, from the last few weeks, that I really love! These are my favorite because most can be worn now and later, so I like the flexibility! After talking about this bag here, I finally bought the Michael Kors Hamilton tote. I ordered it from zappos.com and literally received it the next day (free overnight shipping :-)) and have been wearing it ever since. I also check out Mango all the time and purchased these leopard wedge boots from there last week. You all know by now, how much I love my leopard and while I am mostly conservative…these boots challenge me to push the style envelope. The chunky bead necklace from my recent trip to H&M stood out to me and I bought the black and white striped nautical top to go with it. I think It would actually work well with my black cropped pants from Urban Outfitters and the H&M flats. I also purchased a similar pair of wayfarer glasses from Urban Outfitters this weekend, but it wasn’t the Ray-Ban brand and only costs me about $14. What do you think of my buys? I still want a few more things but want to fall back on spending for the next few weeks. It is hard as ever though, since I work on 34th Street and I literally have to walk past these stores everyday. Pray for me guys..lol! Have a great Wednesday everyone!!
