Hot Pink One Shoulder Ruffle Dress


Hi Loves!  
Hi I hope you had a great weekend. 
I spent Saturday at the city park with the kids for the Carousel Festival and Sunday entertaining guests, getting ready for Monday and somehow managed to sneak in a couple hours of rest/nap. 

As long as the temperature feels like  summer, I am going to keep indulging and act as if it is not nearly coat season. Being in the south is a great advantage for that.

This dress was a find during the last Zara sale. It is simple yet unique. Easy to wear and style for a dressy or causal outing.  For this look, I paired it with matching pink shoes and an embellished Clutch.

Have a great week!

Emmanuel :: Eight Months Letter

Hello my beautiful baby boy.

You did a lot of growing in month eight both physically and developmentally.

You sprouted you first teeth and just a couples of week after, the second on came along.

You are the master of crawling now and you can pretty much compete in a crawling race. And, the way you maneuver your way around is beyond me.
 

You started pulling yourself up and love to stand by leaning on furniture's or any object that will support you. E.g. mommy's leg. Unless you're seriously engrossed in your play with your sister, you'll most likely be found standing and not sitting. With that, you're learning / trying to walk around by holding on to said object and walking around it. 


You're even taking it a step further and attempting to climb the staircase. You just haven't quite figured out the arm, leg coordination to make that happen yet.

When you're in your walker, you love the fact that you can "run" in it. And, I think you enjoy bumping into stuff and people. 


You are already a sweet tooth. You love your yogurts and your fruits. But, when it comes to veggies you pretty much act like you're choking to avoid eating it. The first time you gave that reaction, I almost lost it thinking you were allergic or choking, only to find out you don't like greens and do all you can including sticking you tongue out, pushing the food out and having a mini episode. It is truly quite a show you put on when veggies are in roll.
 
  
I can see that your love and admiration for your sister grows each day.

Your attachment to mommy is becoming real, even to the point of you refusing daddy's offer to carry you when you got upset. That was a first and a surprise.


  You went on your first road trip and did amazing. Although, I could clearly tell you would have preferred not to see the inside of a car seat for a few weeks after that. After the trip, as I prepared to put you in your car seat the following work day, you were really fighting me and didn't want to go down. Can't blame you though. Spending that much time in your car seat will not be happening again anytime soon.

You have blossomed and keep developing new personality, which makes watching you grow each day even more exciting.

I don't believe I have said this before, but you are the most calm, easiest and happiest baby ever. 
I thank God for making you just the way you are. You are fearfully and wonderfully made and can't wait to see what the next 3 months has in store before the big One.

Love,
Mommy

One Shoulder Ruffle Sundress & Pom Pom Sliders

Hi loves!

Happy Friday. I hope you had a great week. It was a 4-day work week but with the same workload, hence the excitement it is Friday!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have caught a glimpse of this dress. I wore this over the weekend last week for a family brunch outing. Outings with the kids calls for a fuse free outfit and this dress was just perfect for that occasion. If you've been following me for a while now, then you know I like "simple" pieces but with some details to it to make it stand out. For this dress, it is a combination of the one shoulder and the ruffle details. And, the front pocket is a major plus. You might think it is similar to this dress in this post and that is absolutely right. I'm finding that when I like something or find a new style that I gravitate towards, I don't stop at one, at least in cases where there are options.

Since it was a casual day out, I opted for my pom pom sliders for comfort and finished the look with my orange handbag. 

It seems like I am just beginning to enjoy my summer wardrobe and all of a sudden Fall is around the corner. I guess I'll just have to find ways to incorporate some of my summer pieces into my fall style. 

Enjoy the weekend!

Gingham Cold Shoulder Top

Hi Loves!

I have to be honest, when this cold shoulder trend first started, I was not for it. But now, it seems I can't get enough. This top is just one of many cold shoulder tops and dresses I own. The nice thing about the cold shoulder style is that it comes in variety of style, so even though I have a few cold shoulder items, I don't believe any of them are the same as far as the cut and details.  

Hope you're having a great week so far.

Stripe Button Front Dress

Happy Monday! 
And I mean it this time. Three-day weekends are the best!
I achieve a lot more, have more fun, even get some rest and I'm sure I'll go back to work a happier person on Tuesday. So, why can't all weekends by like this again!?

Starting off this week with this look. Being a stripe lover, the front pockets and off shoulder details of this dress were just an added bonus. I love how simple this dress is, but yet, it stands out. It will be a perfect vacation dress to wear while talking a walk on the beach. 
Off to enjoy the rest of the long weekend.

Floral Ruffle Cold Shoulder


Hi Loves!

Hope your week is off to a great start. Mine is officially starting today.

So over the weekend, we visited Rhode Island for a friend's wedding. We decided to drive down there for one reason or the other, don't ask. Let's just say we won't be embarking on another road trip for a long time. 

We stayed in downtown Providence and ventured into Jamestown for the ceremony and Warwick for the reception so we got to see different parts. From the little we were able to see and experience in our short time there, It is a beautiful place that will definitely be worth making a trip back to explore and relax. Downtown Providence was fun and the area has lots of great food spot. For some nice ocean view and beach experience, Jamestown, which is just a short drive away looked like it had everything. I'm sure there are more cool spot in Rhode Island, so this is definitely a place to return to with or without the kids. 

For the wedding, I opted for this floral dress. Like many others, it has been sitting in my closet waiting for the right occasion. It is easy to see why I love this dress. Most obvious is the unique ruffle sleeves / cold shoulder combination. For comfort, I paired it with my brocade block heels and accessorize with a gold clutch.

The wedding was fun, the kids had a great time and apart from the long drive, it was nice to get away from home for the weekend. 

Hope you had a nice weekend.

Hot Pink & Wild Wedge

  
Hi Loves!

I hope you are having a good week so far.

I decided to stop being lazy and do something new with my hair. So, last friday, I made an impromptu visit to the beauty supply store and gave myself a new hairstyle. 

I know summer days are drawing to an end, and before we start seeing fall colors and fashion, I am sharing the last bit or more like lots of summer outfits I've been wearing lately.

I can actually see this top getting styled for fall just by layering it on top of a black or solid colored t-shirt, a pair of jeans and some thigh high boot. With that said, I might just have to re-style this top as described. 

Lots of love.
