Liberti Love Lariat Necklace and Coordinate Ring

I’m a firm believer that fashion is a powerful tool. It can not only make you look like a million bucks, but also make you feel great and empower you to take on the world. But my favorite kind of fashion are the ones that take it a step further and bring on a positive change not just to yourself, but to the world around you as well.
Enter: Liberti. Their jewelry collection is beautiful, that’s for sure. But what makes them extra special is their company’s mission as represented by their Less Than One Percent campaign.
Not so fun fact: did you know that there are 14.4 million refugees of concern around the world. Of this vast number, less than one percent are submitted and processed for resettlement to a new country. Their mission is to elevate awareness for the less than one percent of refugees fortunate enough to escape the brutality of camps.

It’s been awhile since we’ve had Giveaway Friday, so I thought we should have a very special one today featuring Liberti. One lucky reader will win themselves a set of the very lovely love lariat necklace and coordinate ring. Read on to see more photos and find out how you can win.

Classically Denim

The Limited Button Front Denim Pencil Skirt

I don’t know about you guys, but most of my go-to outfits usually involve some kind of denim. Plain denim is like the tofu of the fashion world. On their own, they might be a bit boring and flavorless. But they serve as a great palate for dressing up and take on the flavor of everything else you pair it with. This means the same piece can be worn super casual or dressed it up as much as you want.
Of course the most obvious denim go-to are jeans (or short shorts in the case of crazy hot weather like we’ve been having lately). To vary it up a bit, I’ve been adding the button front denim pencil skirt from The Limited to my denim repertoire. The skirt is so versatile and matches with literally every top I own. Pair it with a simple tee for a great casual wear. Or add a blazer and heels to that combo, and you’ll look polished enough for a client meeting at work. But from my most recent blog posts, you can probably guess what my favorite pairing for this skirt is: off-shoulder tops.

Off Shoulder In Pink

Kimchi Blue Smocked Off-The-Shoulder Top

See I told you I was obessesed with the off-shoulder trend, because here comes another blog post featuring one.
After all my foray with off-shoulder tops and rompers, I found that they’re not all created equal. My favorite ones are the one that comes with a separate elastic band for your arm. Or, alternatively one that has very stretchy and forgiving elastic band around the top. Why does this matter so much? Well if you plan on keeping your arms and hands below shoulder level at all times, it wouldn’t be such a big deal. But if you want to move your arms around like a regular human being, the “inferior” off-shoulder items would easily ride up (or even worse give you a wedgie if it’s an off-shoulder romper). So this might be one of those items you want to try on at a brick and mortar store rather than buying online — or you can buy those that have been vetted by yours truly.

After finding your fave off-shoulder top, all you gotta do is find a matching wall so you can take that perfect instagram photo😉.

Poms and Choker

August 2, 2016

Romwe Yellow Pom Pom Trim Ruffle Off The Shoulder Top

I have been a bit obsessed with the off-shoulder and poms trend lately. I love them both separately, so then I thought: why not combine it? To do this, I literally just googled “off shoulder poms” and this Romwe crop top is what I found. Not long after purchasing the top, as if it was fated, Ettika jewelry contacted me to see if I wanted to try out their stacked choker. Who knew the combo would be one of those match made in fashion heaven. Chokers are very much the perfect accompaniment for crop-tops.

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).

Zara plaid dress

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. I snagged two dresses at the Zara sale, one of them is this tartan beauty (the last piece: SCORE).

4th of July Sale Roundup

You know what is a crazy realization for a self professed shop-a-holic like me? I seriously cannot remember the last time I had myself a big shopping spree. It’s kind of good, I guess, to have self control and all that (LOL). But then it got me thinking that I’m overdue for some purchases. Thankfully 4th of July long weekend is here along with a bevy of Independence Day sales. And with it, comes my very good excuse to go shopping. Even better, I’ve also partnered with some fabulous bloggers to bring you guys a $600 giveaway. Because the only thing better than a shopping spree is one that comes free of charge.
