What, like its hard?

I never thought in a million years I would wear a Barbie/Elle Woods pink suit, but I gotta say thank goodness for evolving. I would have missed out on this fabulous piece. Suits are most definitely my favorite for work, they are easy to put together, look professional, and are mostly very flattering. I purchased this suit from Target, -their new line, A New Day. I cannot rave about Target lines enough, they are affordable and best of all the quality is so amazing for the price point!

This linen blend is perfect for the hot weather that is already here in North Carolina. I love that I can make this look causal if I wear the pants with a white or black tee and maybe some comfy sneakers. I can also wear the blazer over a black camisole and pair it with dark denim and heels – so versatile! Definitely see my self living in this for the next couple of months!

Pants (they are a relaxed fit so size down – I did small!)

Blazer

I wore a bodysuit under my blazer, which I purchased from h&m years ago. Bag is ElizebethandJames, heels are Valentino.

How would you wear this suit?

and of course have to mention my amazing photographer/friend! Who truly makes photoshoots so much fun. PorshiaHernandezPhotography

goodbye summer, hello fall.

To dress for the summer season is extremely difficult, for me anyways. I find that it is just too sticky in the south, so being cute is out of the question. Your makeup doesn’t last – no matter how many amazing setting powders or sprays you own, your hair (or MY hair in this case) never wants to stay put and WILL forever just want to curl and get frizzy. Welcome to Carolina heat. The weather is still rather warm, but we are finally gearing up for Fall with the chilly breeze in the mornings and cool nights- my absolute favorite!

But the way I stayed cool (pun intended) this summer was living in easy breezy dresses or jumpsuits. It made life SO easy and the thing about jumpsuits- they transition right into fall- all you have to do is add a cardigan for a causal look or a blazer for a more sophisticated one.

boho chic.

I swear, I was meant for a different era. My mother calls me a hippie all the time… and sometimes even a gypsy. If I could be in a headband all day, I probably would. I know the cooler temps are getting everyone excited for Fall, but it has been rainy and icky all week in NC. Luckily, the sun decides to come out and play mid-day, so I still get to incorporate some summer looks. I’ll take this post to also talk about my obsession with white. Whether it be eastern wear or tops, I constantly gravitate to white. There is something about a white shirt, especially white shalwar kameez, that makes me weak in the knees. I can’t explain the obsession but to me, everything looks better in white. It’s angelic yes, but it also feels brand new and I love that feeling.

So, here’s a look I put together last week. When it gets cooler, you can throw an oversized cardigan, pleather jacket, or a vest over this kind of top, and it will look great. These over-pieces are three completely different looks to style the outfit. I never go into American Eagle- not that there is anything wrong with AEO, I just feel too old for it, but I went in there to purchase a present earlier in the summer, and got this top for literally four dollars! It was meant to be. You will notice my jeans are AGAIN acid wash. I’m telling you, different era. I kept the look relatively simple, my headband is my focal point, obvi.

jumping for joy.

Is it just me, or has this summer been extremely hot?  When I went to Canada earlier this month, I realized how hot it is here in the South in comparison. I needed a cardigan there at all times, because the winds were that breezy. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. I love summer, I do, but Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons, and sadly North Carolina only gets to experience it for a short while. I have to get really creative in the summer, since shorts and tank tops are not my cup of tea. Maxi dresses and maxi skirts are usually my go to, because of the humidity here in NC. I try not to even mess with denim, it’s SUCH a hassle. Recently, I found something even more breathable. I have been jumping for joy over jumpsuits! Ever since it got warm, I have been obsessed! I found a linen one a couple of months ago and it has been my go to piece! It’s easy to style, very minimal, and it is SO comfortable. I am not a floral print girl, but I really liked this jumper. I wore it to a birthday party prior to wearing it in Canada, and I love that I was able to dress it up and dress it down. Just depends on your accessories. I wore this jumper to the zoo in Canada and kept my look very simple, side braid and all. I used the cardigan for a pop of color- and for warmth!

Oh, and my beautiful cousin makes an appearance in my post! =)
