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! ❤

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! ❤

From Dayclub to Happy Hour With Tobi.com

Anyone getting ready for a spring break beachy vacay? Or perhaps your next Vegas trip with the girls? No matter where you are headed to, packing can be daunting, especially if you’re going to a new place. If you are like me and you like to travel light instead of overpacking, keep reading!

I’ve always been a huge fan of items that I can wear multiple ways. Here I’m wearing this cute cold shoulder shift dress from Tobi.com that I can easily turn from a summer cover-up to a night-time outfit. The cotton material isn’t pretentious, so it’s easy to wear with pretty much any accessories or shoes you like. The color is neutral, which makes the dress very versatile. Last but not least, the cold shoulder gives you that sexy/flirty look that you need either for the beach or a night out! Whether you throw in a scarf, hat or a belt, you can give it a unique look. You can get it here for under $30 along with other great items for your vacation.

Tobi.com has pretty bodysuits as well. I can’t wait to show you the other outfits that I got. Stay tuned for more summer looks…

Until next time! ❤

Chinese Flare And a Pop of Color

Hello world!

I know it’s been a while since my last blog post, but I hope you really enjoy this one.

If you follow my posts regularly, you have probably noticed that I’m all about the right accessories. Most of my outfits are really not that special, but it’s the styling that complements them. I got these Chinese earrings as a gift, and I think they make the perfect statement jewelry piece while adding a pop of color. I am also obsessed with shoes, especially heels! I scored this L.A.M.B. pair on Ebay a couple years ago for around $30. If you are a L.A.M.B. fan, you realize this is a total steal! I know they may look painful but I must say that these and another L.A.M.B. heels are the most comfortable ones I’ve ever worn. Now that doesn’t mean I would pay full price for them. 🙂

Finally, this Mango chain leather bag is on sale here. The velvet slip-on dress is also on sale on Mango here.

What is the most important accessory in your closet that you love wearing over and over?

‘Blushing’ in Velvet With AMI Clubwear

Velvet is here to stay, and, so are lace-up pieces!

I have always been a big fan of versatile outfits – anything I could wear day to night is a winner in my closet. This cute outfit by AMI Clubwear fits the description perfectly. This lace-up sweater goes a long way. Styled with a pencil skirt and a pair of nice heels would make a great office look, while a patterned pair of tights will give it the sass for a night out. Regardless of your style, AMI Clubwear has plenty of other similar options available at very affordable prices. Classic little black dress, sparkly sequins, and current trends – you name it. Whether you prefer long or short, light or dark, I’m sure you’ll find the right look for you.

I have been absolutely obsessed with the velvet trend since this past fall. These velvet booties are to die for, not to mention they are only $32.50. The color and the shape of the heel are what makes them unique and different than most brands out there.

I hope this look gives you some inspiration for your day to night looks! Cheers ❤

Holiday Ready

Going short just in time for the holidays! I haven’t rocked short hair in a few years, but now that I finally found an awesome hairstylist in Las Vegas (@hairbypinkie), I’m ready to experiment again. I’m excited to have an easier styling process at home and get my hair ready much faster than before.

On another note, I’ve been obsessed with these cute mirror sunglasses I found on FlashFrames. In fact, you can find similar styles here. FlashFrames will let you upload a photo of your dream glasses, and find you a similar frame just for a fraction of the price. You know I’m all about saving and finding a good deal on my outfits and accessories, so I couldn’t pass it up. You should definitely try it and see for yourself.

In the meantime, wishing you all a bright and joyful holiday season!

Xoxo ❤
