THE GRADUATE

Jacket and Dress: Luis Aponte; Shoes: TJ Maxx (old); Necklace: Sira&Mara

A few days ago, somebody left a comment on my Instagram account asking me to do a post about graduation dresses, so here I am. I already had this shoot scheduled, and I thought that it would be a great example of a dress that can be worn for the ceremony (with the jacket on) and for the celebration (without the jacket). I have found LOTS of affordable options (I’ve placed the shoes that I’d use with each dress right by the dress) for those of you having a graduation coming up. Congratulations!! And make sure to find a dress you love! Those pictures are forever there to remind you of your great accomplishment!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Monday!

I’d like to share this quote with you all in hopes that, like I have been for the last few days, you need a reminder: ““The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”

Thanks for stopping by.

Tee: Target; Jeans: Zara (old); Shoes: Zara (old and DIY toe cap); Bracelet and belt: Sira&Mara

I have been called a clothes hoarder a time or two (or hundreds), and these jeans are exactly why people are dead wrong. I am fashion preserver. I am fully aware that fashion is cyclical, so I refuse to get rid of any clothing I love if it is in good condition, because I know the trend will come back. While flares may have not made a comeback just yet, I love them, and I am glad that I have kept this pair for 10 years.

Happy Monday, everybody! Thanks for stopping by!

BASICS WITH A TWIST

Top: JCPenney (old); Shorts: Forever 21 (old); Shoes: Victoria’s Secret (old); Necklace: Sira&Mara

I wore this during the weekend and it was one of those totally improvised looks (aka all of mine) that came together beautifully – in my humble opinion. Basis pieces is totally my comfort zone. Adding funky accessories is all I need.

Hope that you are having an awesome week. Thanks for stopping by!

Never say never, my friends. I said I’d never wear crop tops, and then I found this one in my closet (it was a gift many years ago), and decided to wear it this weekend when it was SO HOT in Miami. Since the top is kind of on the revealing side, I decided to go for a more relaxed look for the bottom and wore these sequins joggers that I love.

Hope that you had a lovely weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
