” We wear short shorts !” does anyone remember that commercial? At the time, I hated it because the girls in the commercial had such long beautiful legs and mine were short and thick. Though I love my legs now, I don’t really wear shorts that much. They usually ride up my legs which make them even shorter so I am constantly pulling them down. However, with the temperature reaching record breaking numbers here in Houston, short shorts are in heavy rotation right now.

Another item I am trying to incorporate more are flats. I have worn heels pretty much my entire adult life. Of course, I wear sneakers when they are required, gym, outdoor activities or when I find a really snazzy pair. Other than that, I am usually in heels. I purchased the ones pictured several years ago because I wanted a pair of white flats after seeing them on someone in a fashion magazine. I was so excited when I found them but never wore them until today. It is very tricky so pull off a white shoe of any kind, which is probably the reason it took me so long to wear them.

I love lace and I really love white (my favorite color) so when you put them both together I am in white lace heaven. The collar and sleeves of this top are the main reasons I purchased it, oh I can not forget the price. Got it at a steal! I will definitely be wearing it again, possibly with a bottom that is a bit more dressy. I finished the look off by adding a snakeskin chain bag I scored from Vince Camuto as I embraced the summer heat while shopping  for NYFW.

I’ve been wearing a lot of blue lately. I do not know why really because it is not a color I usually would choose.I have been finding some really cool pieces in blue so I am starting to appreciate the color more. We are in the midst of the summer and  staying cool has been a challenge but the Fall is coming soon and I simply cannot wait. I am so ready to pull out my box of sweaters, boot and jackets. Until then, I will try my best to appreciate the sunny days here in Houston.

I am a jumpsuit girl for sure, I enjoy wearing them because of the versitlity. I can dressed them up by adding a pair of heels or dress them down by throwing on a pair of casual flats or sneakers. I love this particular jumpsuit because it is so comfortable and stretchy. However, anything with spandex can be a bit tricky to pull off, especially for a curvy girl like myself. This jumpsuit is by Ralph Lauren, who in my opinion knows how to make classic pieces when it comes to women. The white neckline makes the jumpsuit look nautical, like I am ready to go sailing on a nice boat. I added a simple strap heel and color block clutch bag to complete the look.

 Any other jumpsuit lovers out there ?

” Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” MLK

It has been a very rough week for a lot of us in America, very draining to say the least. I am going to keep this post very brief. Love is the answer to all things and hate is a learned behavior. No one should ever be discriminated or wrongfully  treated simply because of their race, religion or sexual orientation. I will not go deep into this topic but I will say one simple thing that many of us learned as children. Treat others the way you want to be treated. The next time you pass judgment on anyone for any reason, think to yourself “Would I want to be treated this way?” “Would I want my family member or friend to be treated this way?”. If the answer is no, then and there you should know the action is wrong.

Sending love to you all,
