All That Glitters

Top: Handmade (coming soon) | Skirt: Rachel Roy | Shoes: Steve Madden | Wristlet: Nine West

I don't know what it is, but I need a great cardigan in just about every color. I actually got this one on a thrift trip to Good Will during one of my Thursday Thrifting posts. This one is designed by Maria Gabrielle in the color mauve (my favorite color this Spring/Summer). If you'd like to recreate my look, with the pieces displayed below, you can pair it with this cardigan to bring out the rich red tones in this lace skirt. This day, it was one of the hottest days this summer, so I was overly excited to remove my cardigan to show off my backless top. This top was supposed to be something else, but I ended up wearing it like this and to be honest, I love wearing it this way (I get tons of compliments). To lighten up the outfit, I decided on my taupe fringed heels. I could've went darker, but I believe it would've looked more stunning in the evening, matched with a pair of black or even dark violet shoes. Quite honestly, that decision is totally up to you when it comes to accessories and how cool/warm you'd like to go. Naturally, I love warmer colors because it compliments my skin tone.

Solid or Stripes: What's Your Favorite?

Blush Sleeveless High Low with Flats Blush Snap Front Sleeveless Tank Kate Spade Walta Leather Ballerina Flats J. Crew Striped Flats

And I chose...

I adore wearing flats when I'm wearing tunics or high-low top. It kind of reminds me of the babydoll look. I had the decision of choosing whether to wear heels or flats. Being that I haven't featured flats yet... well, here goes. Out of the two, I decided to go with my Walta Kate Spade Ballerina Flats in black, for a more classic look.

Look inside my makeup bag...

Come on... admit it. You can't think of anything better than to know what's inside my makeup bag, lmao. You know it!
On a seriously note, I decided that I wanted to open my swag bag and let you all inside to see what it is that a have. Because I am asked on the regular, my usual look is natural. From time to time, I love going glam and "doing the most" like any other girl. It's a girl thing. Oh and if you are interested in my bag, I purchased this gold one from Ulta about 4mnths ago. It looks like the only available color it black.
Play the video already, lmao...

lace + summer looks

While I was creating my personal wishlist on Wednesday, I totally remembered how I was going on and on about Spring looks... that I forgot that Summer is officially here. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by. Before we know it, we'll be picking out our New Years Eve party wear. While doing some window shopping over at Lenox Square and multitasking on my iPad, I came across some really great ideas for some summer looks that are pretty popular. I am really enjoying the swimsuits that are out at the moment that look like lingerie, from soft floral prints to intricate lace detailing. The season is all about soft patterns, delicate fabrics like chambray, satin and soft knits.

If you are also interested, H&M has some really cute swimwear starting at $4.99. I decided to pick up a couple of pairs for the summer. Here are a few you may love. I will also attach some cover-ups for the ladies who are looking for an additional look. When it comes to cover-ups, I usually tell clients who are either going on vacation or on a cruise...
"The perfect thing about swimsuit cover-ups is that they can be worn as a cover-up and later turned into a tunic. If you slip a white, beige or black tank or bandeau under your cover-up and wear them with a pair of denims, tailored shorts, or even jeggings... you have just turned your look into something casual that you can worn to lunch or even dinner."

My clients usually loved this idea and would request 3 or 4 depending on their vacation time. I'm telling you, it's the smartest idea out yet.

Well, I'm am off to enjoy this morning swim. Have a great and safe week!
