Happy Monday, my friends!

Are weekends ever not busy? Mine was busy as usual but thankfully it was mostly fun. The best part was the beautiful sunny weather we had until it was abruptly interrupted by a major thunderstorm, a dramatic finale to a beautiful weekend.

The important thing is that I got to squeeze in this photo shoot because I couldn’t wait for you to see this beautiful bag that was sent to me by Jordana Paige. As soon as I set my eyes on this Cora bag, I fell in love with the serenely understated shade of lavender. I also immediately thought of the perfect summer dress to wear with it. Continue reading

Outfit Highlight: Beach Dreaming + GIVEAWAY

Happy Monday, my friends!

It was a hot and humid weekend but I’m not complaining. I’ve been waiting for this kind of weather for too long. When it feels sticky outside, there is only one place I want to be…at the beach. When you can’t take the heat anymore, you can just take a refreshing plunge into the ocean water. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in Rio enjoying the white sand beaches of Brazil, but the beach always feels like home to me, peaceful, relaxing and carefree. Continue reading

Outfit Highlight: How to Wear a Skirt Set

Banana Republic skirt set, Forever 21 pink moto jacket, pastels, spring colors, spring trends, mint

Happy Monday, my friends!

We finally reached temps in the 70s a couple of days ago and I feel alive again! And of course I had to take advantage of the weather and squeeze in a photo shoot. So I’ve never been a huge fan of matching sets whether they’d be pant suits, skirt suits or a skirt set. Depending on the silhouette and style, they can look a little too matchy matchy or a bit like a uniform. I’ve been seeing a surge of skirt sets lately in all shapes and styles and I don’t know if it’s because of the variety of prints, textures or silhouettes, but I find myself paying more attention to them as I have with this Banana Republic skirt set. I love the silhouette of this skirt set and the comfort factor sealed the deal. If you’ve been following me, you know comfort is high on my priority list. Continue reading

Hope your week is off to a good start. I wish I could say the same about my photo shoot yesterday. Have you ever had one of those days where the elements just didn’t seem to be working with you? Well, I had such a day yesterday where everything from the wind to the sun just refused to cooperate. I don’t even know how I was able to come up with a few decent photos to share with you.

I’m obsessed with these Forever 21 loafers. Continue reading

Outfit Highlight: Lovely in Lilac

Club Monaco Blouse, Search for Sanity midi skirt, lilac, lavender, spring colors, Easter outfit, statement necklace, cobalt blue, bow pumps
Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good Easter.

Unlike past Easters, I was actually able to wear the outfit that I had planned to wear. I purchased this lilac circle skirt a while back at Nordstrom because I loved the way it fit. I was also intrigued by the color because I had never purchased a skirt in lilac, aka as violet, lavender, mauve, or light purple. Unfortunately, it just didn’t seem to pair well with any of the tops that I had in mind. I tried neutrals like black and white and I also tried to stay within the same hue but it just didn’t seem to work, so I just tucked it away in my closet for another day. Then I spotted the color lilac featured in different magazines and blogs and it was being paired with all sorts of different colors. Continue reading
