I DREAM OF CHRISTIAN





Blouse: Guess (sold out) | Leather Pants: Theory (on sale here) | Trench: Coach | Shoes: Christian Louboutin (similar here) | Clutch: Saint Laurent | Bracelet: Chloe+Isabel

Happy Saturday loves!  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and ready for the New Year!  I can't believe 2013 is almost over!  I am just stopping by to say a quick hello before meeting up with my friend for dinner.

After 6 months of waiting, I finally got my hands on this beautiful pair of Christian Louboutin Pigalle patent pumps.  It's a dream come true.  They are everything I expected and more.  I'm also really into leather pants at the moment so you might see a few more outfits with them in the future.

Thanks for reading and happy New Year!  xoxo

SPRING IN WINTER



Top: Splendid | Jeans: Current/Elliott (limited sizes and other color options here) | Shoes: old (similar here) | Bag: Michael Kors (similar here)

Happy Sunday my loves!  It's the last Sunday before Christmas!  Hope you got all your shopping done and ready to spend some quality time with friends and family.  I know I am!  I've been so busy lately catching up after my vacation that I have not had time to post.  The past two weekends I tried to take pictures but it snowed like crazy.  Today is the first day of winter and it feels like spring.  Temperature in the 70's!  It has been raining but I will take it!  Anything is better than the 20 something and snow we've been getting.

Since it was a beautiful day out, I decided to wear my sandals and t-shirt.  I just kept it simple and casual for a brunch with my friend Walter (who is also the photographer for my blog).  I'm also trying out a new lipstick I got awhile back.  It is a dark wine color but turned out to look more like a raspberry red in the pictures.  Also, I find myself really liking black recently.  I used to really stay away from it when I was younger but all I find myself wearing recently is black.  Isn't it funny how your taste changes over time.

Thanks for reading and have a very merry Christmas!  xoxo

VACATION FUN

Happy Thursday loves!  I'm back and finally caught up after my Bahamas getaway.  Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of food and time with family (and shopping of course).

Here are some pictures from my trip with my mom.  We had such a wonderful time together eating and chatting the week away.  It was such a relaxing time and one of the reasons why I love cruises.

The first port day, we were in Port Canaveral Florida.  We went to Cocoa Beach and the famous Ron Jon surf shop.  It was sunny in the mid 70's.  We walked along time beach for awhile and enjoyed the view.  There were a ton of people getting surf lessons and surfing the waves but we decided to just do some sunbathing.

The second port day we were in Nassau Bahamas.  We also went to the beach this day and then walked around Atlantis and the shops nearby.  The beach was incredible.  The sand was so fine and clean it felt like flour under my feet.  It was uncharacteristically windy and the waves were too large to swim.  We were able to however dip our feet in and the water was surprisingly warm!

While days at sea, the cruise offers formal dining options and two of the nights were "cruise elegant" evenings.  Since I love to dress up, I took full advantage of this.  Below are my two "cruise elegant" outfits.  I'm slightly obsessed with red lipstick at the moment so I decided to keep my outfits more on the neutral side so the red would stand out.

On the last port day, we were in Freeport Bahamas.  We stayed really close to the ship and went around to the local shops.  There were tons of them lined up one right next to the other selling anything from bags to handmade jewelry to wood carved Tiki heads.  There was a guy selling fresh coconuts so I was able to experience fresh coconut water for the first time.  It was quite refreshing and tasty!
