Doublehighfive Bk Recycled Plastic Bag Bracelet

I took this photo about a month ago in Texas, and booooooy was the weather HOT. When the temperature get’s that crazy and humid, I don’t even feel like fussing around with dressing up fancy. In this kind of heat, I go for the tried and true: jeans and plain tee. Then I pair it up with a couple of complimentary accessories, like this set of recycled plastic bracelet from Doublehighfive Bk.

Zara Dress

This dress is another acquisition from the Zara sale a couple weeks ago. just like my tartan dress, this floral beauty was a last chance grab. I just love when I find that the last dress available is exactly my size — it’s like a sign from the universe that I need to get it. Plus, not only is the print and flowy material perfect for summer, it’s also the perfect maxi length for me. No adjustments needed! Now that’s almost as rare as finding long jumpers that will fit my shorty stature without alterations.

American Apparel Printed Rayon Mid-Length Tie-Up Blouse

As a blogger, and a photo taking addict, I love finding quirky walls that serves as great backdrops for my snapshots. I especially love it when the background happens to also match my outfit. I mean what are the chances that I’ll find a wall as wacky as my pink printed shirt. Times like this makes me think that I should make a database of all the cool locales to take photos in (I wonder if there’s an app for that).

Hope everyone had an awesome long Fourth of July weekend. If you’re like me, the weekend fun doesn’t include just grilling and fireworks, but also partaking in the Independence Day sale. I gotta say that I’m pretty proud of myself for keeping a semblance of control and not going too crazy.

Heio cube mitjana small crossbody

This lucky girl is fortunate enough to enjoy a fairly sizable closet for New York standards. Even then, my modest walk-in closet is almost at the breaking point where I need to take stuff out in order to bring something in. So when I’m considering whether to add a piece to my collection, whether it be clothing or accessories, I think long and hard about how it’s going to fit with the rest of the things I already own. Nevertheless, every so often I find one of those items that I just instantaneously fall in love with that makes me throw all caution to the wind.

I’m not sure why, but white eyelet dresses are just so quintessentialy summer. It definitely has been a favorite go-to dress for me lately. Pair it up with a flea market embroidered bag, and I’ve got myself a stylish boho look that can withstand the summer heat.

Tiger Shorts

Topshop MOTO badge mom shorts

This tiger shorts is one of those piece of clothing that immediately struck me as I walked into the store. As most of my Topshop shopping stories goes: I came in looking for one thing, got distracted by all the pretty shiny things, and leave with much more than what was on my shopping list. But the shorts is too cute to pass up — plus you know I’m a sucker for all things feline related.

Desirelist Staycation Essentials

About a year or so ago, I was in a cab when I heard the NYC tourism tagline “for the world, it’s the trip of a lifetime. For you, it’s a subway ride away.” This really struck a chord with me. Why let the tourist have all the fun, right? I’ve been in the big apple for a few years now, and I don’t think I have even scratched the surface in hitting all of the attraction of the city — but not for lack of trying. To assist me in my NY exploration mission, there’s a few essentials that I can’t do without.
