Happy Saturday! This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but because of the shorter work week, I worked longer hours Tuesday – Friday & did not even make it to the gym! I missed my favorite zumba & boot-camp class! (That will get fixed this week). The entire month of May has been quite busy, my cousins and a few friends flew in from out of town. This is one of the outfits that I wore. To create the look I paired a skirt & a top that I’ve had for a while. I usually wear the skirt with a sheer white sleeveless blouse (for a very delicate look), but I got bored with that so I was trying to brighten the skirt up. Why didn’t I think of this combination before is what I want to know!?! White + Coral + Ivory look fantastic together. To match the soft tone of the outfit I finished the look with nude/gold accesories… What’s not to love about these neutral skirts? Scroll through to see the 16 skirts below, all of them are great options for the summer!!

The White Blazer
Are you looking for a chic & crisp look? White blazers are not only a summer essential, they are a great alternative for work (all year round). Getting dressed for work should not be boring! A white blazer can also polish up an edgy denim to create a chic casual look. For today’s look I paired my white blazer with a textured pencil skirt and shiny gold heels. Simple, minimalistic and elegant! What do you think?
The best part about a white blazer is that it can take you from work, to an event, a happy hour, and the weekend.
How to Wear a White Blazer to Work: (1) match it with any solid color pencil skirt, (2) layer it on top of a sleeveless dress for coverage, (3) layer it on a printed dress or skirt, (4) match it on top of black, navy, grey or beige wide leg trousers (I love this option & do it a lot!)
How to Wear a White Blazer in a casual look: (1) match over a tank top & ripped denim, (2) layer over a lace dress, (3) layer over a solid colored / floral dress, (4) match it on top of a mini skirt, (5) wear over any color skinny jeans, (5) black skinny jeans + a black top
Try any of those options and you will look super fabulous. I have linked eleven different white blazers (from multiple brands and at different prices), check them out!

Happy Monday! What I love about the Nautical Theme is that it is timeless and never goes out of style. Every time that a striped top is paired with red / white / navy colors, a chic outfit with a nautical flair is created. While this is a casual look, you can dress it up with a jacket or a blazer, and pumps. This ladylike nautical look that I am sharing today, I wore over the weekend and recently to work during Casual Friday. I completed my outfit with a sporty blazer & super comfy wedges, for a sporty classic look. Hope you have a wonderful week…
THE BLACK BLAZER
If you work in the professional world, chances are you own at least one basic black blazer. Black blazers can be worn outside of the workplace as well, to make an outfit look more conservative & elegant at the same time. This one has ruffles all around the waist, making the blazer more feminine. I have numerous black blazers that I wear mostly for work, but this is my favorite! I have linked a few different priced ones…
How lovely is this skirt!? The skirt I usually wear at night with a black blouse & high heels, but when paired with a black blazer it becomes a great option to wear for work. And the shoes I found at Macy’s a while back, I loved them because they are a nice change from my usual black or neutral pumps! Have a wonderful week…xox
