American Girl

10 Jul

Hello there Jewels,

I hope you are all off to an excellent Tuesday.

It used to be that I would wake up to an 8-5 dressing up in a pencil skirts, polo shirts, dresses, slacks, etc., now a days I am enjoying what we Americans do best wear jeans. Yes, we know we Americans love to wear jeans, why not, we make the best ones. I have had these jeans for seven years and they get better with time my friends.

Chambray: grand & greene, everyone should have one of these in their wardrobe.

I am such a fan of gold cuffs and pearls: essentjewels, and I especially like to wear them combined, this is actually a two strand pearl bracelet, and I added my vintage wire Gucci watch in between. I guess you are all getting the hint that my style is very classic, but don’t be surprised if you see me in a post wearing something very modern, and by modern I mean futuristic especially when it comes to shoes, the edgier the better.


Awe, just saw one of my favorite persons over the weekend my hair dresser, not only does he do an excellent job with my hair, he entertains, and makes me laugh. I absolutely cannot live without him. I don’t know what I would do if I moved. I have been seeing him for six years now since I moved to Michigan. He knows exactly what I want every time I see him, which doesn’t change, but if it works for me why break it right? Loafers: Coach


My polish for the 4th red, white, blue, I did my part of being patriotic.


Jeans: AG, super comfy and I love the fit, they are feeling a little snug on me lately I better watch it, us petite people have to really watch what we eat, a couple of pounds is like 20 pounds for the average person.

And a dainty necklace is all I needed to complete this classic look: sweet essentjewels, and of course I had to wear this with my aviator Ray-bans.

I hope you are all off to a fanatic week, and thank you for visiting us.

With love,
Monica

Keeping it Chic With The Other Boyfriend and Middle Eastern Pastries

29 May

Hello Jewels,

For my date with the other boyfriend I wanted to keep it simple and chic, because I did not want him to think I was trying too hard.

The other boyfriend: Boyfriend Blazer in navy blue Banana Republic, belt J.Crew, shorts, H&M.

Aviators: Ray-Bans, moccasins Coach, these are almost as comfortable as my Cole Haan with Nike Air.

The date with the other boyfriend consisted of over indulging with Middle Eastern Pastries at my favorite Middle Eastern pastry shop Shatila and of course I always get overwhelmed about their selection because I want everything!

But we always get the usual: The Egyptian Nabulseya Coarse because it is warm, drizzled with crumbled pistachios and oozing  melting cheese (I could so have some now)!!!


Middle Eastern pastries are all about pistachios, which means we never pass up the pistachio ice-cream.

I  am a big fan of Cannolis and I had been tempted before to try the Middle Eastern version of the Cannoli. I was so curious that I didn’t use the fork or knife, (please don’t be disappointed) it was not bad, but I will stick to my usual: Nabulseya Coarse.

And that was my date with the other boyfriend, shhh please don’t tell my husband.

Necklace: chic, by essentjewels.

Until next time my friends,

Monica

Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini

10 May


The temperature was in the near 90s here in Michigan and all I had on my mind was the “Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” and drinks at the beach.

So I tried my best to make it happen. I put on my yellow polka-dotted blouse by Do & Be, aviators: Ray-Bans, 7 for all man kind dark navy blue jeans, and shoes Joan David rose ring: essentjewels.


And I met one of my best friends for drinks who greeted me with a warm smile wearing our glimmer earrings.

I can’t explain the joy it brings to see my friends supporting our work.

Jewels, what are the simple pleasures of life that bring you joy, we want to know?

Until next time,

Monica
