Animal Instinct: Zebra Print

Zebra face by www.jadore-fashion.com

Hi everyone! How was your weekend?

Zebra by www.jadore-fashion

My weekend was very relaxing. On Saturday after work, I stopped by the mall. It has been a while since I went shopping. More often, I have found online shopping easier and fun as I am able to avoid the hassle of crowded stores or the difficulties in finding appropriate sizes. After shopping, I got an ice cream cone before heading home. On Saturday evening, I tried out a new recipe for Pasta, which I posted on my previous post here. My Sunday after church was spent catching up on recorded shows and a trip the gym before calling it a night.

For this outfit, I decided to try out different looks by pairing two jackets. I wore the black blazer to add a more formal look to the outfit and I switched to the jeans jacket for a more casual look.

Which do you prefer?

Dinner: Penne Pasta


Hey guys! It's me, checking in! I hope your weekend it going well.

I decided to do a quick post on tonight's dinner. This is the first time that I have actually tried to make this type of pasta. I usually make my pasta with pasta sauce; but today, I decided to try something different. 

Ingredients: Penne pasta, Vine tomatoes, Parsley, Garlic, Basil, Olive oil, White onions

IMG_1370
  1. Chopped up tomatoes mixed with parsley, basil, thyme, pepper and olive oil and let it marinate
  2. Cooked the pasta in a boiling salted water until it is al dente, then I drained the water
  3. In a separate pan, I heated up the olive oil and then I added chopped white onions 
  4. After sauteing the onions, I added the marinated tomatoes and cooked pasta before letting cook for a few minutes
Here is the final result:

Since I am a pasta lover, this dish is really easy to make. I will definitely be making more of it.
I hope I didn't make your mouth water ;)

Enjoy...see you later,

Leopard Brights

Bright Leopards face short by www.jadore-fashion.com

Hey guys! How has your week been so far?


My week has been pretty good so far. In the past, I occasionally got exhausted after a long day at work; however since I started doing Pilates, I have been more energetic. I love the feeling after a day in Pilates' class, which can be attributed to an awesome instructor. Not only does it help with toning, it helps me a lot with my posture.

Lately, I have been all about suits. I have had this Mango yellow suit for almost 2 years and I get excited each time I wear it. Love the color...well suited for summer. I previously wore it here.

On the other hand, since I got my iPhone, I have been having fun with my Instagram and I am also trying to tweet more often. Therefore, you can tweet me anytime because I enjoy responding and chatting with everyone. It is also a faster way to keep in touch or just to say hello :)

Playing With Prints And Colors

Jcrew & Miu Miu Full by www.jaodre-fashion.com

Hi everyone! How is your week going?

My weekend was fun and went by quickly. I spent some time with friends. Late Saturday, we went to support a friend of mine who threw a big first birthday for her daughter. It is always fun going to kids' birthday parties as I usually end up acting like a kid. Not only were we blowing bubbles with the kids, we also participated in musical dance chair and I was the second person booed off. LOL!

Saturday was a fun night indeed. On Sunday after church service, my husband and I took a drive to Annapolis and later stopped to get dinner at Nandos. I posted a picture on instagram of my favorite Nandos' peri peri sauce. I always get the extra hot sauce. :)

On another note, has anyone noticed the constant change in weather? Here in Maryland, the temperature was between 90-100 degrees last week and suddenly, it started raining over the weekend and it is was cold. It felt like Fall...

With this outfit, I decided to use the pants as my styling focus. Being that the pants is bright fuchsia, I incorporated a darker color (cobalt blue) while bearing in mind the floral blazer. I added the floral blazer to highlight the fuchsia and blue color in the outfit. If you notice, the blazer has both colors in a floral form. Therefore, when it comes to mixing bright colors with prints, make sure there is a common color that tie both together.

I am in love with this pants--very comfortable and chic. I think Jcrew pants stole my heart. I can't get enough of the cut and prints of the cafe capri pants. :)

Floral Dose

Hello beautiful people! Friday is around the corner which means I am super excited :)

Floral00 by www.jadore-fashion.com

How has your week been? I had my second pilates session this week and seriously, who invented those Pilates equipment? They are not as easy as they look and my trainer had my friend Ivelisse & I doing some tough exercises. She is definitely pushing us and this is great. I think I have found a form of exercise that isn't boring.

On the other hand, I am looking forward to the weekend and one of my reasons besides sleeping late is because I am hosting a ladies fun night at my place. Since my graduation celebration, I haven't seen most of them; so this will be a night to catch up on new things, eat, drink and be merry ;)

Corporate World

Work Outfit 1 by www.jadore-fashion.com

Hi everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Work Outfit face by www.jadore-fashion.com

I often receive emails regarding outfits to wear for work as such, today's post features an outfit I wore to work. I accessorized with these bold earrings after work to get some drinks with friends. When it comes to work, I tend to add a little bit of color without going overboard. In this case, I wore the lavender capri pants from JCrew. To prevent the outfit from being over-shadowed by the color of the pants, I added some neutral tone colors i.e. the blouse, blazer and shoes.

Remember, work outfits don't have to be boring or dark. You can always add a little bit of color; whether it is your pants, blouse or scarf. Be careful to avoid being too bright because you don't want to be the walking rainbow at work.

On another note, I have finally started my pilates class. You will not believe how much I love it even though Saturday was my first time ever . The equipment looked scary at first, but I warmed up to it. I tweeted a picture of what the equipment looked like on Saturday. I will definitely tweet another picture of the studio during my next session on Tuesday. Pilates is definitely a great exercise because it works your whole body. I can still feel the tense in my muscles. I love the atmosphere of  INLINE Private Pilates studio and my instructor is awesome.

Has anyone taken Pilates before?
