i happen to be a big kardashian fan. what i like most about them are their outfits. they know how to dress for their curves and they always manage to look sexy, yet classy. so its no surprise that i'm often inspired by them.
the outfit below was completely inspired by kim, down to the nail color. i had to improvise with the hat and belt, of course, but i think it may have come close enough.  
jeans: express
shirt: express
shoes: bakers
watch: target
bag: mulberryfor target
necklace: t&co
belt: target
fedora: store in miami

happy friday!

be blessed,

pineapple and mint.

it was so hot today i decided i thought it was good idea to finally use up the deliciously ripe pineapple sitting on our counter. my sister usually makes a pineapple and mint drink whenever we visit. i thought it was my turn to try. it was quite easy to make and quite refreshing. perfectly suiting for the weather.

a little neon in my life.

so here's another outfit post this week. i wanted to post a different kind of post today to keep things more interesting but as i said here, i won't put any pressure on my self. so this is what i got, and it is what it is.
now about this dress which i just love love love. i specifically love the racer back and the neon with grey. i added a colorful sports bra because i just happened to have one that matched. i think i loved this dress because it reminded me of  this dress when i saw it hanging at the zara sales rack. except it's a more summery, relaxed version. which is perfect for the hot weather we've been suffering! as my friend brooke says: bah hambug at this nasty weather. but yay for this adorable dress i scored at zara.

dress: zara (S)
sandals: bakers (S)
jewelery: tiffany (SSS)
sunnies: ray-bans (SS)
sportsbra: target (S)
bag: louis vuitton neverful gm ($$$$)
cute puppy: priceless (SSSSS...SS?)

thanks for stopping by,

i had a great weekend. after traveling with the hubs for two weeks i was ready to settle down at home and spend some qt with the family. we went to my parents house sunday for a bbq during the day, and when the sun went down we all went for a walk. there were so many laughs. it was such wonderful time spent with the best people in the world. i love home. i love family.

blazer: h&m
dress: ross (very very old)
belt: from a target dress
shoes: zara
bag: target (old)
jewelery: tiffany & co

well, hello again.

i've taken a small vacation from my blog. and i've contemplated coming back many times and have talked myself out of it, because of lack of time or a camera. but i realized i keep making excuses because the reality is, it's a lot of work! it requires a good amount of time and sometimes i just don't have it. but i've realized that there are no rules when it comes to my blog. its my voice, my ideas and i won't put pressure on myself because of it. so here i go again venturing into this blog sphere. let me catch you up on what's been going on.
