I love summer. It means trips to all my favorite street fairs and theme parks. This romper was one of those random finds at Forever 21. I saw this adorable print and I knew I had to pick it up. I just thought how perfect for summer. ‘Island chic’ is my current love in the summer trends.
My husband always says that I am his ‘tropical vacation’ and in this outfit I feel like one. 🙂 Continue reading →

You have seen my love for prints lately. After talking about prints on skirts (here & here), let’s talk about pants. Printed pants are a very cute invention. They are versatile enough for both business and leisure. For a casual look, I pair mine with a simple tee and I am ready for a day of summer fun. I love printed pants. Pick up a pair with an elaborated print on a neutral color for versatility.
Also, check out silk patterned pants for a work-wear look here.
This camo sweater is too cute for words. It’s modern relaxed look gives you an instantly chic outfit. I like to treat camo as a neutral and mix them with trendy colors, boots and statement-making accessories. The key is to not over think the styling. I just let the fun print take over. Here are two of my favorite ways to wear this comfortable sweater. These looks are going to be in heavy rotation this season.
Hello my darlings! I hope you are having the most love-filled Valentine’s weekend. I am keeping things casual and loving this ‘darling’ sweatshirt that I found recently at Nordstrom and at a stellar price! I am also looking forward to dressing it up with a skirt, heels and bright accessories for a night time look.
A casual and cozy way to adopt the trendy crop top is to layer it over a crisp and classic white button-down shirt. It is also a great way to try out this fun trend if you are not keen on showing off your belly. Works great for me especially after all the sweet valentine treats I devoured yesterday. 🙂Continue reading →
Wearing layers is the secret to surviving the mid-west weather. I usually opt for 3 and then top the look with an over coat. It is always a good idea to start with a soft and thin full-sleeve fitted t-shirt to keep you comfortable througout the day. I love the pairing of simple denim shirt under my sweaters to make the outfit look more put-together. Plus adds that extra layer of toasty comfort. Sweaters is the play area. I like to go for prints and patterns here. It is usually the star of the outfit and will be seen the most throughout the day. As you might know by now, I am huge fan of pops of color with my basic look and bright-colored outerwear does the trick. (More examples here and here) Continue reading →
The best part of holiday season is spending a lot of time with family. My family is scattered all over the world. That means a lot of traveling for me. While flying across the country I like to be dressed warm and comfortable. I always get cold and sleepy on planes. While I love jetting off for a vacation, I can’t say that I like the dozens of red-eye flights and security checks that I deal with when flying somewhere. To ease the pain of traveling, I like to keep my look simple and easy. There are so many things you can do to cut down on potential security screenings and make the act of traveling more comfortable.
I love lunch dates with my husband. Our favorite day time date idea is to pack a salad and some desserts – a balanced meal 🙂 and head on to the beach on our bikes, for a picnic. On weekdays, we meet up during lunch time and try to explore the different parks of our beautiful city. I cherish these exciting as well as relaxing times together. We are both super goofy, so I get my mid-day dose of laughter at my lunch time. Luckily we both have the flexibility in our schedules to meet up on most days. I am very grateful for these simple pleasures in my life.
