My Fashion Soul

How are my sweets doing? 
Hope your all having a wonderful hump day!  Black for summer?  Why not!  I got these jeggings at Mandee and I LOVE them!  I didn't think I would love these as much as I do, but they are so comfy.  Already planning how I'll wear them in the fall.  Zara is having their super sale and I got this tee for like $8 bucks....SCORE!  I LOVE me some Zara!    I'm not a fan of black in the summer.  Maybe for evening but for day I like to keep it bright!  The weather has been pretty perfect and not too hot so I thought, why not?

No rules right????? 

Sunnies: Franco Sarto
All Jewelry: Tiffany & Co.
Soul Tee: Zara
Jeggings: Mandee (Swore I'd never wear jeggings....but I LOVE these!)
Sandals: Prabal Gurung

Peace out!

Ditch your mini! GO MAXI!

Heyyyyyyyy!  What's up my sweets!  I missed you!  Hope your all enjoying your summer! 
Mine has been super chill!  Hubby and I are taking a few days off in August, soooooo looking forward to that!  We are on a tight budget this year so no vaca, but we still need a few days to unwind. 

Who doesn't love a good maxi in the summer!  I have a few and actually they are all kind of dressy.  I'm on the hunt for a casual everyday maxi.  I went to Forever 21 and couldn't find any I liked.  I ordered this via Hautelook and it's so soft, and I love the print!  So go ahead and ditch your mini! 

Channeling my inner goddess.... ;)

Dress: Hautelook
Sandals: Prabal Gurung

FYI - don't let these silly poses fool you!  I hate taking blog pics, and my hubby knows it so he makes me do silly things!  Gotta love him! 

Have a fab day!

Heat Wave SUCK!
After a nice long weekend here we are back on the grind!  Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and long weekend!  What do you wear when it's been 90 degrees and humid for over a week now?  NOTHING!  No's been so f'n HOT!  When it's this hot out, I LOVE a good cotton summer dress!  Not too fussy but still cute!

Dress: Xhiliration (Target)
Clutch: Loop
Sandals: H & M
Sunnies: XSRE

Too much jewelry is no bueno on hot days, I kept it simple with my diamond necklace and a few bracelets.  As you can see, I lightened my hair for summer.  I like it, but I haven't been this light in soooo long!  It's definitely going to take some getting usto!

How are you fashionistas staying cool?

Just add BLING!

Happy hump day sweets! 

I can't believe tomorrow is the 4th of July!  Pretty soon it will be Christmas....UGH!  I work on Friday, so I don't have major plans for tomorrow but I'm sure fireworks are in the plans.  Over the weekend right before I went to take pics, it down poured!  Of course the rain aggravated me as well as my hubby screaming.  I can't take the pic that way, oh wait...I'm getting wet.  I'm getting the camera wet!  Hay dios mio!  #bloggerlife.  I could have killed him!  With that said......I only have 1 picture to share with you.


White button up: Zara
Belt: Gifted
Jeans: Lauren Conrad (Kohl's)
Glitter flats: Zara
Necklace: Charming Charlie

I didn't kill him, if your all!  I'm just happy to have at least one pic to share with you all.  This white button up is so light weight, as you can see it's very sheer.  Wish I had a closer pic.....grrrrrr!

Anyway, this button up is perfect for summer!  It has to be one of my favorite staple pieces in my closet.  A white button up is definitely a must in everyone's closet.  It's perfect alone or even layered with a blazer, vest, moto jacket or anything really.  I of course being the diva that I am, paired my top with rhinestone accessories.  Obvi!  :)
