Sunkissed: Crop Top and Midi Skirt

Hello loves,
      I have to admit there is a certain thrill I get from purchasing a cute  item for next to nothing. I think that feeling is quite comparable to the excitement I would get from purchasing a trendy expensive Label. Personally speaking, one of the numerous reasons I love fashion and why I blog is because of the challenge of finding that great deal. You would be surprised at the amount I have paid for some of the items in my closest. For example the purse in this post was a whooping $10 from DSW. I was laughing my way out of the store. I think smart shopping and spending within your means is so important. Do you?

 Today's post features a midi skirt and the ever so popular crop top. I've had reservations in the past about wearing a midi skirt since I am so petite, but I have decided to embrace this trend.
  • Midi skirts look superb with heels - Always!
  •  If you are shortie like me, a hem line that hits just below the knee is very flattering. If you are taller,   you can rock almost any length. Almost!
  •  Streamline your look, pair the midi skirt with a fitted top to emphasize your waist line.

  • Top off with a leather Jacket for some edge and to toughen the look or a blazer for a classic clean look!
  • Mix different textures.
  • Most importantly, have Fun with it!

Simplicity in Floral

Florals, florals, florals. I am totally loving this trend. This is funny to those who really know me because there was actually a time when I would never be caught in bright colors or even in dresses. I will save that story for another time.
      Since the floral trend made its comeback last Spring I have been intrigued and pleasantly surprised that it can be styled in different ways from casual looks to boohoo chic to office chic without looking gaudy.
      This look is simple yet clsssy. I let the floral dress take center stage yet perfectly complimented by the gorgeous delicate nude shoes. These artfully created shoes are a shoe lover's dream. The fact that they are so comfortable is merely the icing on the cake.
I also kept my jewelry to a minimum and opted for a structured bag for the extra chic vibe.
When unsure about how to style a floral piece- "keep it simple".

Lacy Details:: Lace Maxi and Orange Blazer

Hello Darlings,
             I had the pleasure of going to my adorable nephew's Christening a few days ago and it was really great to spend time with the family.  It was a windy day, perfect for a maxi dress. The sheer lace details are definitely my favorite elements of this dress. It adds a little something special to what would have been a plain maxi dress.

Sheer Lace details always manage to add a touch of sensuality and femininity to an outfit. The trick is knowing how much and what part of the body is been exposed. Lets not forget to keep it classy =)

 The Lace trend is not going anywhere soon and I can't get enough of it. I will be indulging in this trend all season long. To add some feeling of Spring and cheerfulness, I opted for a pop of color with an orange blazer and Pumps...Let me know what you think.
