Down Town

26 Jul

Hello Jewels,

On occasion I head down town Detroit with my husband for lunch with his colleagues which is a privilege for me because one of his colleagues is an art connoisseur with a vast collection in his office and his home. I was eager to speak to him about our tradeshow experience and our market such as bed & breakfasts, wineries and in particular museums and one being the Flint Institute of Art, heading down town for me has recently turned into a dressing up occasion since on most days I dress very casual.

Can you tell I am from Michigan with all the American cars, we Michiganders love to support American cars.

Wayfarer: Ray-Ban, Navy Blue Blazer, Banana Republic, Leather Belt J.Crew, Bird Blouse H&M, Pencil Skirt, J.Crew, Grey Patent Leather Flats Coach, Bag Coach, Jewels essentjewels.

Until next time,
Monica

Our Best Looks

13 Jul

Good morning beautiful pearls,

Hope you all looking forward for the weekend and have some exciting plans. I will be getting together with a friend while my husband and our dog headed to the northern part of the state which is where most Michiganders like to spend their summer, and fall, who can blame them it is a beautiful part of the country with gorgeous scenery and spectacular weather. The only reason I didn’t join him is because it was a boys weekend.

And here are our best looks for spring and summer 2012.


Would you agree?

With love,
the silva sisters

Feeling Like Florida

19 Jun

Hello Jewels,

The weather in the MI (Michigan) has been hot and humid and feeling like I am in Florida. Us Michiganders love to vacation in Florida during the cold grey winters, that is if my husband and I are not in California visiting my family. So what did I do, I faked it like I was in Florida, I put on what I call my Florida attire because it is bright and colorful, only I did not feel like wearing a skirt/dress.


Hair my friends: valcro rulers they are great because I am not adding unnecessary heat to my hair which I do enough of with a blow dryer.


Cross Necklace: Faith (currently what is keeping me living) essentjewels which you can find here.


Coral blouse: Express and Coral Lipstick: Bobbi Brown


Want-to-be Ray Ban Wayfarer: bungalow


Belt: J.Crew, our Carol pearls strand bracelet you can find here: essentjewels, wire watch: Gucci


Floral kitten heel heels: Etienne Aigner (this is probably as floral as it gets for me, everything else I will keep as chic as possible). Nail Polish: O.P.I. (Did it on EM) which I am currently addicted to because I have had it on my toes for a month now and it plays pretty close to a neutral, it is also not a true yellow, it is more in between a yellow/lime which works with my skin tone, a true yellow most likely would have not worked.


White Jeans: Paige


Ring: Sea essentjewels, you can find here, everyone is doing it mixing the gold with the silver, I also added our accountability bracelet you can find here, I think mixing the silver and gold really works well when wearing bright colors, and nail polish: Revlon (Coastal Surf) , I had to put it on because I had Florida on my mind.

And there you have it my Florida attire.

Thank you for visiting me in Florida my friends,
Monica
