October in White

Hello, October! 🍂 Yes, it’s cooling down but for Vegas this means going from triple digits to mid-80s. So, here I am in my white ASOS dress and open-toe booties. I found this ruffle bell-sleeved dress on ASOS not long ago and thought it was cute and unique. Yet, I’m not sure how I feel about the fit or where I would wear it. It is still available here if you’d like to check it out.

On another note, can you tell my Palm Eyewear sunnies match my new hair color? I didn’t plan it, perhaps it’s the light. 😎

Have a lovely week, everyone! Let the sunshine be with you. ❤

Walking in Gingham

Florals, gingham print, ruffles – this Nasty Gal jumpsuit has all the current trends I’m loving this summer, and can’t get enough of it. I prefer the dressy look, and it makes a great date night outfit. If you throw on a white T-shirt underneath you could make it work even for the office. The material is so light and it fits to perfection, just like any Nasty Gal piece I’ve worn. Did I mention the best part yet? Use GET50 for 50% off and get it for only $30! If you want to take advantage of the sale while it lasts, check out more cute jumpsuits and rompers here.

How do you like to style one pieces?

Styling a Vintage Shirt

The vintage shirt – a trend that is perhaps here to stay for a while. I feel late jumping in on this trend, but I finally found a shirt that I love! My husband got this one for me from the Zappos.com gift shop, so unfortunately it’s not available online. When I saw it at first, I loved the design but it was a bit baggy and not flattering at all. Of course, I had to make it my own, and it only took two easy steps. Cutting the sleeves and tying a knot on the back (or the front) and voila.

Here I am styling this vintage shirt with one of my favorite Guess denim skirts. Most of the time I wear it with denim shorts as well for a more casual look.

How do you like to style your vintage tops?

P.S. My younger son, aka my mini me had to get in one of my photos below. He’s excited to start kindergarten tomorrow. ❤

Purple Hues

After nearly two months without posting, I’m making a comeback in one of my favorite finds from the Zara sale. My work travel and family summer adventures have kept me busy, but you can find all about it on my Instagram here.

If you are short like me, you know the struggle of finding a great fit, especially for jumpsuits. When I tried this romper on, I knew it was a winner. I loved the colors too, and I have been wearing it as a casual outfit most of all. Here, I decided to dress it up with a pair of caged heels and add a pop of purple.

The amethyst leather bracelet is handmade by Desert Daisy Jewelry, and you can find it here along with other unique crafted jewelry items including the hairsticks that I frequently wear. The tassel earrings I’m wearing below are also handmade. I found them in a boutique in Sydney, Australia during one of my latest trips.

I can’t wait to share more Australian finds with all of you, so stay tuned! ❤

Dressy & Casual With Driven Boutique

Hi all. I hope everyone had a fun long weekend!

The windy weather we experienced in Vegas a couple weeks ago was not fun to shoot in. So glad it’s finally nice and warm.

I couldn’t wait to share with all of you this outfit, or I should say outfits. Yes, I’m styling one piece in two different ways again. This strappy top I found at Driven Boutique is the perfect casual everyday top that you can dress up if you wanted to. It’s still available here for less than $25.

The first look is perfect for a night out. I love wearing palazzo pants during the summer, especially colorful flower prints. You can easily turn an office outfit to a happy hour look. I found this pair at Forever 21 a couple years ago, and I’m so glad they are still on point.

Of course, I had to feature a casual style as well. I paired the top with denim shorts, but you could try a denim mini or even jeans. Finally, if you are investing in a pair of shoes this summer – a pair of mules is a must. I love these black mules from Parque because they are just the perfect height to fit either a casual or dressy look. Not to mention how comfortable they are.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Tell me which look you like best in the comments below. ❤

Donald J Pliner Fall Collection Preview

Can we talk about fall trends? I know you would say summer is barely here, how can we focus on fall. I promise once you see what I mean, you will be saying fall can’t come soon enough!

This weekend I had the privilege to hang out at Donald J Pliner‘s boutique at The Forum Shops in Las Vegas and preview his fall shoe collection. From flats to heels, nudes to brights, there is a pair for every taste. Personally, I always go for the statement shoe – you can see my favorites from the new collection below. The colors scream fall yet the styles are so fun, especially the embellishments and fur accents.

Everything from the fall collection is available for pre-order only. If you can’t wait, there are plenty of summer styles to choose from. Better yet, take advantage of the 30% extra off of sales items. Don’t even get me started on the men’s styles – this deserves a post of its own.

And remember, “Life is too short to wear boring shoes.”

Brunching to Bar Hopping in One Dress

Hi all!

I wanted to share another versatile look I wore this weekend. The title already gave it away, but you can see below how I styled this light cut-out dress from Driven Boutique both ways. For daytime, I paired it with flat mules (scored these in Mexico). I love this trend although I’m quite short, and I don’t find them very flattering. Since it’s summer in Vegas already, I wore a denim vest. If you live somewhere cooler, you can opt for a moto jacket instead.

Heels are a must for my evening looks. The corset trend is new to me – this one comes with the dress already, and it’s velvet! I kept seeing similar corsets online for a while, but I wasn’t sure about this trend until I finally tried it on. It does give you a feminine and sophisticated look, so I have a feeling I’ll be wearing it more this season.

I hope you enjoy both looks. If you’re looking for versatile pieces at affordable prices, you can find tons of cute stuff at Driven Boutique you can wear different ways. I personally love the fact that the store only carries a few sizes of each item, so it makes your outfits pretty unique. I’m working on more day to night stories, so stay tuned!

Cheers to a productive week ahead! ❤
