That’s it peeps!! This is officially my last summer post; hence, the title. I went with an all white look since Labor day already passed haha. What saying or rule has ever stopped anyone from wearing what they wanna wear, anyway? This top is my new obsession … like for real, for real, it’s perfect in so many ways. Not only can I wear it again with a skirt but I can pair it with jeans and denim shorts. Come on people, what more can you ask for from a top?! I recently wore this top to brunch with my bestie and got caught up on her Euro trip. I went with this Ella top from Peace Love World. The top is truly amazing and to give a little bit more information for the ladies – I don’t have to wear a bra! Sorry but for those of you who know me know I’m recently obsessed with not wearing bras – yuck gross! Just the word “bra” kills me!

I went with a white mini skirt because I wanted to show the dressier side to this top. I purchased the skirt in Marshalls, and by the way people, this is my store. I know you ladies hate looking through those racks but trust me, it pays off when you come out paying $10 for a skirt that another store is selling for triple the price. I wanted to keep it neutral and classy so I stuck to nude Steve Madden heels. Omg, you would think Steve Madden pays me for advertising his shoes so much but they don’t trust me!! I just find them so comfy and so effing cute, my god! I added a rose gold envelope clutch from Rack to Closet which is so fabulous and fits everything and of course with anything white, I like to layer on necklaces and see how long it takes me to get annoyed by them choking me by the end of the night. I just find layering necklaces really gives a outfit that extra “humf” and touch. Now, farewell summer you were awesome to me but way too hot! I’m ready for it to cool down so I can start layering and wearing all my olives and fall colors.

This top is from the new summer collection of Peace Love World and it’s to die for. Alina Villasante and the design team did an awesome job with this Ann pullover top, it can be worn so many ways with shorts and wedges or how I paired it above. My favorite part of the shirt has to be the sleeves which feature a textured knit pattern from shoulder to cuff. Also, the two gold zippers add that cool effect – you can also lift the zippers as high as you want or as low as you want. Yes, the shirt is white and arms are a off-white giving it that unique look because everyone knows Peace Love World loves making unique yet fashionable pieces. I paired this top with Free People bf jeans which I live in (lol). I decided to dress up the look and add these fabulous shoes from Justfab.com which are so comfy and affordable!!! For accessories, I went with gold layering necklaces and the double pearl choker because layering a bunch of necklaces is so in and I believe, pulls a look together. Don’t let this heat in Miami prevent you from dressing up, I usually wear this top on days I know I’m going to spend my entire time in an air conditioned building, or even to dinner (inside of course). Hopefully you girls take a risk and buy the shirt because once you buy it, it’s love at first sight!

Fall in Line

Hello love bugs it’s been a while again and I’m so sorry I’m always late on posting but my life just gets crazier and crazier by the second seriously. So while rummaging through my “shopping mall” which my friends just so happen to call my closet that lol, I found this hot little number! This look is so me, you can rock this on a dinner date, bar hopping night, basically anything that has the words night life written all over it.

Surprisingly so these jeans are from Forever21, and though it did take a little getting used to. I just feel they don’t flatter my assets the way my favorite jeans would, but the jeans are an awesome accessory to any outfit, they get the job done. The striped crop top is also from Forever21, the top can be paired with practically anything a skater skirt, leather shorts, you name it and for the price $10.00 who wouldn’t buy that? The military inspired vest I got as a birthday gift from my sissy in law and it’s so me. I love that it has mesh in the back and you can see the striped shirt too, doesn’t hide the shirt how any regular old vest usually would. So brownie points for the sissy in law, she knows me oh so well already lmao.

On to the details, the shoes another Forever21 item. Merely enough they are high yet comfortable, and not to mention the same material as the back of the vest. In my opinion they add the sexiness to the outfit along with the lipstick; I like to call it fate, what I’m I saying? Of course it’s fate duhhh. On to Lipstick talk! Heroin, from Mac. I’ve heard so many things about this lipstick and the first time I saw it I was like wow bright but who better to try it then me haha 😀 I believe it added just the right amount of pop to the outfit and the matte finish is my favorite. The bag, oh this bag that had me on a man hunt to find a bag that would liven up this outfit just give it that wow factor, and Jesus did I hit the nail on the head with it. I went everywhere looking for a purple bag, but just not any purple the right purple and low and behold Target of all places. The bag was right there as I walked in bam in your face sitting there waiting for me to scoop it up and debit please to the cashier!!!!

I hope this inspired you to not be afraid to throw in a little pop of color to any black and white outfit you may be wearing. Toddle loves until next time.
