Bring on the Birthday’s!

You’re only as old as you feel, right? So this year, I turned 25 for the fourth time and I think I’ll just keep it going for at least five more years. Im pretty confident I can pull it off. As much as I hate to admit it, I can feel 30 creeping up on me at an accelerated rate and I just want to stop time. If only that was my super power! Anyone know any fountains of youth in the area?

Whelp I guess if you can’t stop it, you have to embrace it! I get the whole experience comes  with age and blah blah blah, but why couldn’t I just be 18 and know what I know now? I mean how easy would that have made my life!? Anyways, Ive decided that 25 ( ahemmmm 29) is gonna be the best year yet!  I have a good hold on my goals and how I can move to make them a reality. With a constant positive outlook and sense of determination, I say bring on the birthday’s I can only go up from here.

To commemorate this, my twenty ninth year, I grabbed some confetti (of course) and balloons and shot this end of summer look. Wearing basically head to toe Kit and Ace, this white kimono and romper are both made of our stretch silk material, which is so light and perfect to get through the last of these hot summer days. I added a fun pastel colored silk neck scarf and my go-to nude nine west lace up sandals. Happy Birthday to me!















Swim Miami RECAP!

So I know Im a bit late on this post but I wanted to share my experience at Swim Miami this year. It was a bit different than my usual swim week experience since this year was not sponsored by Mercedez Benz. I attended shows at several different hotel’s on Miami Beach like One hotel and the W South Beach, which were absolutely amazing! I really enjoyed the fact that many of the shows were inside the hotel. Usually the shows would be held at the Raleigh hotel in several cabanas in Miami’s blistering heat, so this was a nice change. I am excited to see what is in store for next year. For this particular post I thought I would do more of a photo based entry to give you a visual experience of my Swim Miami shenanigans! Enjoy!

Mercedes Benz Fashion week swim includes days of consecutive events and fashion shows. One of the biggest challenges can be putting together so many different outfits.

How to Style your Graphic Tee: Part 2!

My last post featured a casual but oh so fashionable way of styling your graphic tee. In today’s post, using the same graphic tee I’m showing a few quick change tips to have you going from casual to cocktail ready in a flash. In this look, I switched from boyfriend jeans to a fabulous floral print skirt and corresponding accessories of course. Mixing prints by keeping the leopard pumps adds a fun and flirty feel. The days of wearing graphic tees to just run errands or stay comfy at home are a thing of the past. Check out how I styled my Celfie Graphic Tee for the second time around.

An ongoing trend that I cant get enough of, are graphic tees! They have become such a staple in my summer wardrobe. I love finding creative ways to style them for any occasion.

I think it also adds a certain edge to your outfit, proving you’re not afraid to take fashion risks. Here’s the first installment of how I styled my Celfie Graphic Tee for a more casual look.
