Happy Fri-YAY!

It’s time to embrace the wide-leg, cropped pants, y’all! I’m completely smitten by my new culottes (some call them gaucho pants, either work!) because they are the most comfortable pair of pants I’ve ever worn! They hang like a skirt but split like pants – genius, don’t you agree?!

However it’s important to balance proportions while rocking this pant trend. I decided to go with a simple crop top because one thing’s for sure: You don’t want to lose your waistline while prancing around in your super wide leg gauchos.

Looking to dip your toe into the culottes pool (or jump in head-first!)? Check out some of my favorite cropped pants below and start shopping!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous (long) weekend!

Much love!

Swiss Wrist


Happy Wednesday, dolls! Today I’d like to talk about accessories, and my passion for watches. Accessories are so important, and often times a cheaper alternative while you’re upgrading your wardrobe. Lately I’ve been looking at a few Rolex watches and came across an amazing online store called Swiss Wrist. They specialize on buying and selling a variety of used men’s, women’s, vintage and sports Rolex models, each of which are meticulously restored to a pristine, like-new condition. They have tons of beautiful, used men/women Rolex’s – I seriously can’t stop swooning!

And before I forget: They also buy used Rolex watches – hence if you have an unwanted, used Rolex watch you might want to sell/check them out here. As the online authority in purchasing pre-owned Rolex watches, Swiss Wrist pays market price for timepieces, and provides free quotes for all watches of interest.

As always, thanks much for reading and have great day!

Much love!


Thank You Swiss Wrist for sponsoring this post.


Mama in Heels







Today’s post is very special to me because my son is making a guest appearance! Please, welcome my three year old son, Kingston!

“Celebrating motherhood in a chic way” has always been my style mantra hence when the team at Oh Baby Chic asked if I wanted to collaborate with them I literally starting jumping! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Motherly love truly is the best kind of love – it is the purest form of unconditional love. Watching the world through my son’s eyes is truly mesmerizing. His fascination of the world is so beautiful, so pure and innocent. He is my inspiration, he truly is. And let me tell you: Motherhood is by no means a personal style hiatus. In fact, embrace it! We may not have all the time in the world to get ready in the mornings but it certainly shouldn’t hinder us to feel our best. Celebrate mother in a fun, chic way – one beautiful tee at a time!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous day!

Much love!

Bronze Tunic





I love an easy slip-on tunic, and this one from ShopbellaC is so feminine and flattering. Tunic’s are so versatile – from laid back beach styles to dressier versions, the tunic truly is a must have in a fashionista’s closet. The weather here has been somewhat crazy hence this outfit called for a faux fur vest (+ I wanted to add an extra dimension). Not to mention, part of me just feels so luxe being wrapped up in soft, faux fur, and it keeps me warm!

As always, thanks much for reading but don’t leave just yet – because…

Plaid Shirt







Happy Friday, lovelies! So happy you stopped by! Today is all about plaids! I’ve been wanting a plaid shirt for the longest time because when you find a good one, it can stay in your wardrobe for years. But the comfy cozy must-have, doesn’t have to be causal.  Paired with faux leather pants, a blanket scarf (told you I was obsessed!) and some sassy heels – a plaid shirt creates a great look for a fun night out. What do you think of my look? Tell me in the comments.

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous weekend!
