Wearing Summer Colors While I Still Can

Our days of summer are counted, soon we’ll start seeing the leaves falling of the trees, the grass turning brown, and the weather cooling down. I love seeing the change in seasons, but I love the heat, I like dressing with bright vibrant colors, thin fabrics, and being outside without freezing my butt off! Make sure you embrace what’s left of the summer and bring out all those beautiful summer clothing pieces out, flaunt those colors like a peacock, rock the summer hats, and eat out in the patio or terrace. As you know, I love easy one-piece outfits like dresses, rompers, and jumpsuits during the summer. I think they are super easy to throw on, look super fun, and are very comfortable. What’s your go to clothing item or accessory for the summer that you’ll miss once the cool weather hits?

Perfect for Summer

Living in Texas and suffering from crazy heat waves, I consider thin flowy dresses an essential part f my wardrobe. They are super easy to throw on, the air flows right through and you don’t die of a heat stroke. For my latest day stroll/brunch date/shopping day at Legacy West here in the DFW area (make sure to check it out if in town), I decided to throw on this beautiful, super comfy, and easy to dress up cotton button-up dress with a beautiful blue pattern. I paired it with my fave pale pink MK shoes, which are incredibly comfortable to walk around, and (SHOUTOUT) with my amazingly beautiful, hand chiseled leather tote purse by my very own company Erandi. If you love the purse as much as I do, go to www.erandifashion.com and order your own. Use the code PURSUIT to obtain 15% off + free shipping nationwide. Now tell me, what is your must have clothing item for the summer season?   

I think I just saw something delicious in that patio!

Dress to Impress… Yourself

I am not going to lie, I don’t always dress up to go to work. After five years of working at a pretty laid-back company, one becomes more and more comfortable dressing down instead of dressing up to play the part. I do have my moments though, meetings, lunches, after work events, etc. I do believe that an outfit can completely change your mood, the way you handle yourself with others and can even make you feel empowered. For a business environment, you don’t have to play it safe with plain/dull colors, have some fun, wear bold shades, don’t be afraid to wear skirts, cool tights (not pantyhose :/), play with patterns, accessories, and blazers. It is comfortable to stick to darker colors, but a bit of a brightness makes a huge difference, giving a boring outfit the WOW factor. Start by wearing brighter/bolder colors here and there, maybe in accessories or scarves until you feel more comfortable and rock it sister! Feel awesome and love what you see in the mirror… BTW who doesn’t love a pair of bright-colored shoes? I know I do.

Happy Monday everyone!

Rocking the Poncho!

Ponchos and I don’t have the best relationship. Almost every time I try one on, no matter how beautiful I think it looks on a hanger, I just feel super bulky, shapeless, and not attractive at all. It is super important to understand your body shape to realize what looks good and what doesn’t, but most of all, you have to love yourself in whatever you are wearing so you can reflect that self-love and confidence. This poncho is one of the few that I have been able to feel confident in by pairing it with a fitted top to contrast the looseness of the oversized poncho and adding a wide belt. One super important rule to remember… since the poncho is big and loose, you need to pair it with slim fitted bottoms. DO NOT make the mistake to pair it with a wide skirt or bulky pants, that will make you look larger and curveless…Don’t look like a piñata, nobody wants that! For this look, I played it safe with neutral colors (I know, I do this a lot), but you can be as bold as you want, add a nice fedora hat, colorful belt, or oversized accessories. I finished this look with my high heel ankle booties for a casual and comfortable style.

Do you have a favorite poncho look? Please do share!
