Outfit Inspo for Eid

Dress: Zara (sold out)- similar found on ebay || Heels: Jessica Simpson-similar Aldo || Crystal Bracelet and Glitter Bangle: Charming Charlie

Hello my Lovelies,

Since Eid is approaching and many of you will be celebrating, I decided to put together an Eid outfit inspo for those of you confused on what to wear maybe.

I had my eye on this beautiful Zara maxi/coverup ever since I saw it online back in the winter maybe, I can't even remember.  This maxi was sold out so fast, it was as if I blinked and Zara was out of stock.  Luckily I found this in the sale section a few weeks ago and had to get it!  You all know my love for maxi dresses and skirts.

I paired this up with cropped leggings and my favourite high heels (inspired by Zara's infamous heels that were sold last year or so).  I have a love/hate relationship with these heels; I love everything about them, but these killer beauties gave me a sprained ankled last year. Ouch!  Oh well beauty is pain. hehe

My crystal bracelet and the glitter bangle are by Charming Charlie.  Link down below.

I hope you all have a lovely Eid.

Stripes and Bows- OOTD

Top: Macy's (out of stock)- similar Maison Jules || Blazer: H&M (old)- similar here || Jeans: Forever21|| Bag: Aldo || Wedges: Vince Camuto- similar|| Pavelink Bracelet + Crystal Bracelet: Charming Charlie 

I had this blazer sitting in my closet since last year and never got a chance to wear it.  Got an outfit inspiration from Pinterest and took out this graphic Tee that I bought from Macy's a few months ago and just paired them together.  I think I am obsessed with Graphic Tees, especially those with French writing; J'adore! 
Isn't this bag from Aldo the cutest?! Whenever I look at it, I think of Kate Spade and I'm sure a lot of people have mistook it for one as well.  
If you are eyeing pavelink bracelets (like the silver one I'm wearing) then I would suggest you guys check out Charming Charlie.  They have the cutest trendy jewelry and I always end up spending way too much there! What can I say, I love bling bling. 

How do you style your striped blazer?

Summer Neutrals

Top: Zara-similar MIssguided US || Skirt: Old-similar Dorothy Perkins || Bag: Louis Vuitton || Crystal Bracelet and Glitter Bangle: Charming Charlie || Bow heels: Old Macys-similar here
*note 6pm is a sister store of Zappos

Hello my Lovelies!

Since it is summer and scorching hot sometimes, who wants to wear pants or shorts?! I think skirts and dresses are the solution; nice and breezy as well.  Maxi skirts look so effortlessly chic in my opinion.
White and lace has been so big this summer.  I paired this gorgeous lace sleeved top with a nude/pink maxi skirt for a summery neutral look.

July Wish List

coveting this month

Strappy Sandal: Forever21 || Fuchsia Bag: Rebecca Minkoff || Light Turquoise Bag: Rebecca Minkoff || Perfume: Jo Malone Perfume || Coral Flats: Aldo || Rug: Ikea || Tripod: wherever

Hello my Lovelies! I hope you all had a great weekend.  

I was out to the mall this weekend and decided to test out one of Jo Malone's perfumes and wow is the only word I have for the one I smelled; Peony and Blush Suede.  Why do I always get attracted to expensive perfumes?! On the wish list it goes.  It actually reminds me a little bit of Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb and Zara's black peony; both are in my current collection of perfumes.  

I have been on the hunt for non-neutral/bold handbags.  Unfortunately Kate Spade's recent collection does not have anything that has a wow factor unless you are looking for something that will be a staple/neutral in your wardrobe.  Which is a bit sad since I was sort of saving up for a Kate Spade (or have hubby buy me one hehe).  No worries though, I came across this beautiful Rebecca Minkoff bag called amorous in Nordstrom and loved the structure and color options of this bag; the lining is also very pretty.  Now the problem is I can't decide between the fuchsia or the light turquoise.  Opinions? 

Every season, especially summer, I throw out old beaten sandals, which leaves me with only one or two pairs to repeat until I get tired of them.  So I have been making a shoe wish list.  Aldo is or was having a 30% off flats (I really hope they have another sale and my size does not run out of stock) and I found these cute peep toe flats in a coral color.  The other shoe is this forever21 strappy boho shoe, which I actually like in the black now.  

Now don't laugh at the tripod on my wish list! I really need one since it's a challenge having to get ootd pictures taken.  This will most likely be my next purchase.  On the hunt for a good price, if anyone has any recommendations let me know.  It is for a Nikon camera. 

Lastly, I have been eyeing this furry sheep skin rug from Ikea for years literally! I am so glad they always have it in stock.  

What are you coveting this month?

Beauty Haul

These are some of the recent beauty items that I have purchased and have been gifted.

Naked 3:  I had been eyeing this palette since my friend used it on me at my baby shower back in January.  The rosy/ pink hues are so gorgeous! The palette has a mix of matte, shimmery and glittery eyeshadows.  I think it's a very versatile palette allowing you can create a smokey eye to a neutral eye look.  It's perfect if you are looking for a summer palette that will also be convenient for traveling since it is that season for vacations!
The palette can be purchased here
