Keeping it Basic

1 Apr

You know the same feeling you get when you buy a new purse, shoes or make-up, that’s goes for kitchen gadgets as well. I have been on a hunt for a silver tea stand and I finally found it at one of my favorite stores sur la table and this is what I wore while hunting for this gem. I also snagged some kitchen towels and the cutest porcelain strawberry basket. Anything to inspire me to keep my refrigerator clean and organized.

Lady in Pink

Four ways to redefine your look by keeping it polished and lady like, but with a contemporary take on it.

1. Smooth hair, whether straight or wavy.
2. Silk blouse or collared button down, preferably white.
3. Simple Black clutch.
4. Stilettos, preferably with little or no platform, or classic round toe like mine.

Black White and Neon Yellow

27 Feb

My intention for my outfit posts on the blog is to keep track of what I have in my wardrobe so that I could get the best use out of it and only invest in essentials that I can wear from season to season which is why you see me styling my garments in different ways, like my favorite leggings which I also wore here.

Biker Girl Meets Girly Girl

25 Feb

I had a busy weekend, ( my kind of weekend- I’ll explain in another post) our photographer took pictures of our jewels, so get ready to see some new designs on the website. We have been preparing non-stop for next weekend’s event but even more exciting we just got accepted to the Sierra Madre Wisteria Lane annual event!!!! This little town is a jewel in it self. Little quaint small towns always whisk me away to where we grew up. I Was feeling inspired by V-Day, but it’s still a bit chilly for this Cali girl hence the colorful pieces and an accent of edge. Take a peek.

How to Walk on Snow or Ice with Heels

20 Feb

Unfortunately the snow does not keep me from wearing heels the key is to “place your foot straight down so you do not slip” which I learned here and it worked!

On another note in order from keeping my green coat and red pumps from looking too holiday like I wore them with all neutrals underneath and my mustard yellow Coach leather cross-body bag.

Happy Hump Day Everyone,

The snow already melted from last week’s blizzard from the 40 degree weather we had over the weekend. I wish the snow would stick around it looks prettier than this gray weather we have had lately. I am sure you have seen this sequins polka-dotted top a lot from other bloggers, only I have seen it in the black with the white polka-dots. I settled for the vintage champagne I figured it would transition well for spring and summer. Who says sequins is only for winter?

Yes, this black and white snake print clutch again! For one, black and white is big this spring, two black and white has always been classic, and three this clutch seems to go well with many of my looks, (and to think I thought about returning it).

Fancy Pants

6 Feb

Hello everyone,

I must say I love fashion, however I have to be careful with the trends due to my age, and although I am loving all the pants with prints, I have to be selective because some can look a little too youthful so I settled for these which I think I will be able to wear for several years, and the best part was that they were on sale!

Sunnies in the white snow are just as essential as in the sun, as the white snow can be very bright on the eyes.

Hi Friends,

Who had a great super bowl weekend?? Not I! I was in bed sick. However, I did get a chance to get dressed and do our usual Sunday brunch and church. It’s the month of love and taking care of your heart. I celebrated with pink pants and like my sister said stripes are sticking around they are classic, no one can go wrong with them. Hope you enjoy my combo. Take a peek

Still in: Stripes

30 Jan

Hello Lovelies,

Stripes are not going anywhere this season and this winter I am wearing them with my brightest garments to get me out of the rut from this gloomy gray winter, although the last couple of days have felt more like spring in the upper 50s-60s not bad for winter in the MI.

I am loving these nude neutral J.Crew ribbed tights they look pretty close to my skin color and what is even better is that they keep me warm.
