Casual Dress






There is something so lovely about a simple, everyday dress, don’t you agree? I am currently crushing on this super casual day dress from Boohoo which is under $30 y’all!

I needed something easy since 99% of time I am always running around, for instance: Getting Kingston, my son ready for school, heading to work, pick Kingston up from school, go grocery shopping…oh, and I blog and currently pursue jewelry making. So, you get the picture. I live a very busy life. This being said, every now and then I just crave something easy – hence I purchased this casual dress.

What do you think?! Do tell, by commenting below & don’t forget to ask me some questions! If you follow me on Instagram, you may or may not know that I have decided to spill some beans about blogging and myself. Either shoot me an email, comment below or comment on this picture HERE, and ask me any question(s) you may have! I will answer all questions on Friday’s blog post!

As always, thanks much for stopping by & have a lovely Wednesday!

Scalloped Romper







I must confess: I love a cute romper. I might even consider it a girl’s best friend especially on days where you just want to slip into something and be ready to go. I found this flirty romper last year at Marshalls. It has adorable scalloped edges and a beautiful buttoned back. Seriously, this little number is so perfect for summer! I found two similar ones HERE and HERE  (my romper is no longer available at Marshalls) and they are just as cute! Just add heels and a bright red lip, and you’re ready to go!

PS: I’m wearing my new VWear Collection Bracelets which are available August 10. It is a limited edition collection so, don’t forget to mark your calendars!

As always, thanks much for stopping by & have a lovely Monday!

Much love.

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.”

Martha Washington

Almost a year ago (my official blog anniversary is April 7! – stay tuned for an exciting post!) an enthusiastic Chicago girl hit the “publish” button, and I’m so grateful that I did just that. Ever since that day my little space of mine has taken me to such wonderful places, from meeting new and exciting people to fashion shows and networking opportunities that I will never forget! I’m beyond grateful for all of YOU because you have not only encouraged me to strive for more, but you have encouraged me to start my own business as well. My jewelry designs have been so successful because of YOU, and I simply cannot THANK YOU all enough! Hence today’s post is about YOU and the pure joy of happiness you all bring to me. Happiness, which I’ve learned, does not come from how many followers you have on Instagram, or how many likes you get on a picture but moreover it is a spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. I’ve made it a habit of mine to try and make at least one person happy every day. I’m all about encouraging one another, and this being said: I truly hope that my little space of mine – aka my blog – is a place of encouragement and happiness for you all. Where you are not only inspired by my outfit posts but you find a reason to smile and be happy.

As always, thanks again for your support!

I love you all.

Black & White







Woohoo, it’s Friday, and S H O C K E R! No bold colors today!

Today I felt like wearing a simple & classic look (and yes, this might be weather related!). Sometimes, wearing black and white just feels necessary. Every time I wear black I instantly feel ‘clean’, and – call me crazy one this one – ‘uncluttered’. Effortlessly chic. Well put together.

Always the overdresser, my sense of minimalism here actually isn’t so minimal — since it includes some leopard print (I just wanted to add some extra contrast). And guess what?! I wore this ensemble to the office, and let me tell you: This maxi skirt is perfect for long stretches at your desk.

As always, thanks for reading & have a relaxing weekend! See you back here on Monday!
