Last Summer Hot Day

Image
The last Summer Hot Days......
I have so many dresses that sometimes is hard to pick one to wear or I just keep grabbing the same ones.  This one is particular is one of my favorites, it is perfect for those hot days and also good for layering when the temperature starts to go down.  I also have to say these sandals have been on heavy rotation.  I just love how comfortable they are and how they go with pretty much everything.
By the way, today starts Hispanic Heritage Month!!
Celebrate with me :)

Summer Time Sadness

Image
Hello September!!!
My birthday month and a whole of bunch of other people I know LOL

 Today we closed out Summer and I already feel sad.  I feel down because we were robbed, yes robbed.  Summer is my favorite season and this virus just took all the fun away.  I am not saying my Summer was uneventful, but all my international travel plans got canceled.  I tried to make the best of it by going to explore new places, new town and some beach days and that at least satisfied me.
I gave the head scarf a try and I loved it! it made me feel like I belong in France in the 60's, I have no idea why it gave that vibe haha I have been behind posting on here that I can't remember where I wore this to, but it is definitely a style I will repeat again with jeans and a sweater.

Fall Ready

Image
Good bye August....
Welcome pumpkin spice everything and the start of my favorite month September!! I can't hide the fact that I am excited for Fall.  I can't wait to do all my favorite Fall activities and eat my first apple cider donut (The first bite is always the best!).  And the most important transition from dresses to sweaters, sandals to boots and dust out all those light jackets.
Happy Week!

Give Me All The Comfortable Shorts

Image
When you find the most comfortable shorts....
This Summer and pretty much most of Spring I lived in lounge wear.  But it was a nice upgrade to find comfortable shorts to wear anytime I got a chance to get out of the house.  These pair from Mango have been in heavy rotation and I plan to wear them until the end of Summer.  
When the "stay at home" orders were put in place, I swear my clothes knew lol Nobody really dresses up anymore, but for me it was a big disappointment.  I still have some clothes I didn't get to wear, but I am happy that orders were lifted and I got to go out and take my poor sad clothes for a spin.

Clothes Hoarder

Image
Shopping my closet has been so fun!!
I do two closet clean outs a year one where I get rid of stuff and the other one I rotate items that have been hanging there for a while and I don't usually wear. This dress is one of those items.   It was very humid the day I decided to take it for a spin, and the material is not the most breathable, but I love it!  Before this time I only wore it on a cruise in 2012, I guess you can call me a clothing hoarder LOL

Deep Cut Gardens

Image
The charm of Deep Cut Gardens...
In an effort to keep busy and not let quarantine get to me , I have been planning little trips and discovering new things around me.  That is how I found this beautiful gardens only an hour away from my house.  The landscape was amazing, the whole place is well kept and welcoming. It was a perfect activity to put on a floral dress and pretend I was somewhere else.
I recently discover Shein and I am in love with all the dresses and tops they have.  I got this dress for a very reasonable price and it fits like a glove.  With a lot of "cheaper" clothes, you never know what you are getting, but I can honestly, say I have not had any problems with any item i ordered. Everything fits true to size and I have washed a couple of pieces and they do not shrink or anything.
Here are a few snaps of the gardens and if you live in the New Jersey area make sure to pay it a visit.

How is it the middle of August?
2020 has been the craziest year ever and it is hard to process that is almost coming to its end.  I have so many fun things plan for this week (surprisingly) but I have decided to enjoy the rest of the Summer.  This was taken a few weeks ago, when we took a ride down  to Happy Day Farm.  I went looking for lavender, but I was too late (like most of the things in my life lol) but we still managed to have a great time.  I wore this dress I got from Shein and this beautiful beaded bag I found in Etsy.  After we walked the farm we had homemade ice cream and headed to the local farmers market.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

In The Jungle

How is it August already?!
I have been in a cleaning mode and so happy I have found so many old items that still fit.  Like this blouse for example.  I got this like 2 years ago and never worn it, I call it it my jungle shirt LOL I feel so much more organized and lighter after all the things I git rid of.   Why do we hang on to things and never even wear them?  Crazy thing, right?

Happy August friends!

Tie Dye

Tie dye anyone?
I am obsessed with this dress and pretty much anything tie dye.  It brings me back to the 80's and also reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw lol  I don't know why we stopped wearing it, I am so glad is back and hopefully for a long time. I got this dress from St. Cole a shop I discover on Instagram.  They have amazing stuff from dresses to hats to sets it is just amazing!  Be sure to check them out.
Now on to trying to stay cool it will be another hot day.

The More You Know

Image
Three Things that Covid19 quarantine has taught me.
I have not have a lot of time to think about all that's happening,  thankful to God, I am still busy with work and when I am not busy doing that, I try to stay distracted as much as I can.  But these three things I learned early on, specially when the stay at home orders were put into place.
One
People will not make time for you.  
This one hit me the hardest.  As busy as I was, I made time to check on pretty much everyone I know.  A text or call even a Facebook message.  Some did come back and reciprocate, but not everyone will act the same towards you.  I read this somewhere and it has been replaying in my head ever since "make time for people who make time for you, not people who only talk to you when they have time".  Specially now that all stay at home orders have been lifted.
Two
Your family is important.
I knew this of course, but unfortunately for me all mine is far away.  Things are not 100% stable for me to jump o…

Uniform

You know when you find a dress you will love forever!!
I got this dress on the sales rack at one of my favorite stores in town and I could not wait to wear it.  At the same time I received this beautiful beaded bag I had ordered from Etsy.  How lucky am I?    I knew right away they went well together and they sure did.  As you know (from my previous post) I love a maxi dress or skirt.  I can't express enough how comfortable this style is for the humidity and heat Summer brings.
I am sure I will be wearing this dress again and again!

Balloon Pants

When you go to a balloon festival and buy pants :)
Needles to say I also enjoyed the balloons, but I think I spent lots of time walking around all of the vendors and I am so glad I found these pair and they have a pocket!  What is it about women and pockets? LOL I am a woman and I don't have the answer to that, but I do admit in having a bit of excitement every-time a piece of clothing has them.
I added a hat to this outfit one that went well with the bag and sandals I chose.  I am definitely enjoying this bag this year not that is the most practical, but it sure is one of the cutest bags I own.

Maxi Skirts For The Win

Image
Maxi skirts and statement earrings!!
Wearing a maxi skirt has become my all time Summer uniform.  With the heat and humidity it makes for a very comfortable yet chic outfit.  I chose to wear this black one because  I have not worn it in like five years.  I can't believe I forgot about such a gorgeous piece.
I styled it with statement earrings and these pair are definitely a statement.  Earrings are my go to accessory, specially in the warmer months because they don't get stuck on the scarf or coat collar LOL
Also, check out the linkup at the bottom of this post!!

Denim Shorts Forever

Happy Monday!!!
The Monday after returning from a few days off is always the longest day.  I don't remember that when I was a kid.  I was off last week and I rested, not that I have not been resting since March 14th to be exact, but at least I didn't have to work from home and didn't have to get up early everyday.
On to these amazing shorts I got from Mango last month, they fit great! high waisted and so comfortable.  They are the perfect pair to style with crop tops and easy to dress up with a blazer and heels.  I am sure I will be wearing more and more this season.

Picnic Anyone?

Image
Backyard picnic anyone?
I have been trying to make the best of this quarantine situation and have been loving getting a little bit more creative.  It took me a while to get to this point and in a way I am happy quarantine has forced me to come out of my comfort zone, when it comes to taking photos for the blog.   This is Ryan's backyard where I have been spending most of my time, so I decided to pay it tribute and photograph some of it.  He takes pride on his grass, look how green it is!!  I also decided to wear this flowy, comfortable dress I got from Shein.  They have so many cute Summer dresses that it was very hard to choose which ones to buy.  This one specially is one I will probably be wearing more.  
Happy Tuesday friends!

Weekend

Image
Friday is here!!
I have never been a fan of celebrating Fridays because I love celebrating all days (even Mondays) but lately the weekend brings joy.  It could very well be the fact that towns are opening up and I can finally go get that drink I have been dreaming about.  Not to say I didn't have any while in quarantine, but it just sounds better when someone else is making it and serving it.   I wore this a couple of Saturdays ago when we had a little picnic at the park.  That was a fun day!  Staying home these past months really taught me to appreciate the little things.  Maybe I will put my feelings down on a post about it soon, but for now lets cheer to Friday.
