The Oxford

Today we decided to take a walk.
Scarf print top Feline - Pink shorts Lacoste - Silver flats Zara 

Nothing far from home, just a few blocks to 
where the Oxford School is.

Tan bag Carolina Herrera 
It was marvelous as the city was empty because it seems like
everyone left to the beach for the long weekend.

I was quite happy to have stayed in the city for the weekend.

Because, yes I am the type who enjoys a calm, quiet place.
They're just so hard to come by these days !


Almost over

You're gonna think there is something wrong with me...
but, I am actually looking forward for it to begin to rain.
We cannot take this drought much longer.

Jeans Liz Claiborne - MNG Mango top - Teal sunglasses Kenneth Cole - Innovativi wedges 

Summer is almost over... yay!


The Prada top

I've had this Prada top for quite a few years.

Da Moda bermuda shorts - Prada white top -
Innovativi wedges - Kenneth Cole teal sunglasses
It's light, comfortable and can be dressed
up or down, depending on the need.

Today, it went with me to work.
I think I need to wear it more.


Elle inspired

Last night while I did some organizing I came across
some magazine clippings of Elle.

Brown jeans Style & Co. - Personal Identity Top - Brown flats Franco Sarto
I had saved these so I could use them for inspiration,
which is exactly what I did today.

And in my book, these colors worked.


Because of the brand

I plead guilty to buying something just because of the brand.
Mint skirt Worthitngton - Scarf print top Feline - Blue wedges BCBG - Pink bag Tommy Hilfiger 
I have been infatuated by the name brand on the label 
and have purchased the item just for that.

Have totally disregarded fit, paid little attention to the fabric and cut
and have been fully convinced by just the name of the brand.

However when you actually wear the item, the name tag is no
longer visible and then those important things begin to show.

Are you like that ?
Get all excited just because of the brand name, 
get carried away, buy it and 
then end up with an ill fitting garment ?



Over the weekend a friend moved to her new house.
Black shorts Worthington - Light turquoise top Septima - Jessica Simpson black flats - Pink bag Tommy Hilfiger
When we called her to see how she was doing, we realised that she
was on the verge of having a panic attack due to the large amount 
of boxes sitting in there living room.
So we drove over, helped unpack, find a place for things, 
drilled a few holes…

A few hours later, the place looked like a home.


Ace of Hearts

Out of my nail inspiration folder in Pinterest come these 
two fabulous manicure images.

 I headed out to the salon thinking which one I would get, 
because I couldn't make up my mind.

 I kind of mixed a few elements.

The results remind me of the Ace of Hearts.
