SUMMER 16

With summer coming to a close, I had to end it right by spending a day at Virginia Beach. It was my first time at this beach and besides it getting really crowded, its a great beach with lots of surrounding places. Walking along the boardwalk you can find cute shops and restaurants while looking out to the ocean.

CASUAL ARMY GREEN

Happy Saturday everyone! In this look I decided to put together an army inspired outfit with more feminine touches. My Moschino bag that is featured is my favorite at the moment because of its shape and versatility! I'm so in love with it and my new sunglasses by Derek Lam is definitely going in my next monthly favorites!

SUMMER LAKE




I spent the other day at Burke Lake, had a picnic and rented a motor boat for the afternoon. It was so much fun and great way to relax and wind down.

WHAT'S IN MY BAG




I always find it interesting to know what people carry around in their bags so here is what is currently in my handbag. I sometimes like to carry a granola bar or something to snack on if I'm out for a longer time and will add whatever lip product I'm wearing that day.

SUMMER HAUL


As the weather gets hotter, I was in need of more summer pieces to add to my closet and although I didn'g get anything of color, I can always add accessories to add more color! I'm always leaning towards black and white clothing but I definitely need to break out of that habit and wear more color!

These tank tops are from Zara and are perfect for layering or simply wearing with a pair of shorts. 




This black kimono is from Heavenly Couture and I was wearing it in my last post 
White lace sleeved shirt from H&M. I absolutely love this shirt, its versatile, lightweight and a beautifully delicate piece to style during the warm weather. 


I've been on the hunt for a large hat like this and when I found it at H&M for only $12 I was extremely happy! It fits really well and its a great item to have during vacation, days to the beach or when you just want to accessorize an outfit.

H&M Sale!

H&M right now is having a great sale on already reduced items! I went to three different locations to get all the deals and clothes they had to offer. I was so surprised to see how cheap their clothes are right now and I just wanted to buy everything! Here are all the clothes I picked up. 




Left to Right: Green Lace Shirt $3
White Collar Blouse $7
Brown Blouse: $7
Black Sleeveless Vest $5


White Leather Vest Jacket $10
This was my favorite purchase of all because I had been wanting this jacket for a while now and when I saw it for only $10 I knew I had to get it!

All these pants were $10 and fit very comfortably. I love the prints and colors for the summer and the fabric is super lightweight and great for hot weather. 

Colors of Summer



Temperatures are increasing, plants are greener, people are louder and this is all because Summer is finally here! Its the second day of summer and I was realizing that fashion is becoming more exotic and fun. I've been seeing vibrant colors such as different shades of red, orange and blues. Red is very feminine and gives you the right amount of "hey look at me!" But it can be worn to be casual or play it up a bit to go out at night. The different citrus oranges and deep coral tones gives you that burst and freshness that looks great in the summer time and can make you feel bright and unexpected. Blue is a color that is always seen in the summer because it reminds us of the ocean and the aqua waters of far away islands. Its a relaxing and refreshing color that is a staple to my summer closet. Tones of blues are being seen everywhere from maxi skirts to eye shadows and even to wedges and sandals. I love playing with colors and seeing how I can incorporate these colors into my wardrobe this season. Give these colors a try this season and see how many compliments you'll get when you step out of your comfort zone and make this summer exotic!
