Work Style: Simplicity

work style, trendlee fendi 2jours,
What I Am Wearing:
Zara pants (old, similar here, here & here) // Sleeveless coat (old, try these here or here) // White shirt (here or here) // Shoes (here, more options here, budget friendly here) // Fendi bag via Trendlee (c/o here), Get 5% off at with code JADOREFASHION  

Designer bags such as classic and cross body bags always last long but that does not mean they should be priced exorbitantly. At Trendlee, you can shop for preowned luxury bags for a fraction of the cost. The bags at Trendlee are authentic and in great condition…very trustworthy. I love this Fendi bag…perfect for work. In addition, you will not believe it is preowned as it came in a good condition. If you are trying to invest in a great quality/designer bag, check out Trendlee. I am currently eyeing their crossbody Saint Laurent bag.

Wedding Season

wedding guest style,
What I Am Wearing:
Asos dress (c/o here, blue pair here and here on sale & here, crème pair here, more options here) //Aquazzura shoes (on sale here, try this here here & here)

Wedding season is in full gear and as a guest, finding the appropriate outfit could be tricky. What to wear to weddings depend on factors such as location and theme i.e. formal, black or white tie. An outdoor wedding celebration will require a different outfit than indoor location or banquet hall. To avoid last minute stress, it is a great idea to plan ahead.

Today's outfit can be worn to an outdoor wedding. The dress is elegant and simple with feminine silhouette characteristics. The soft pink color and cut makes it a great wedding outfit

Where we stayed: We stayed at the Barceló Bavaro Palace Deluxe; an all-inclusive resort with an amazing customer service, picturesque beach and great food selection.

Activities: We spent time relaxing on the beach, by the pool area and taking long walks around the resort. Nolan enjoyed taking the train ride around the resort and checking out the kids’ activities such as the pirate wall park.  I had a session at the spa, which was awesome (definitely a must visit)

Eating:  We ate mainly at the buffet restaurant and for my birthday dinner, we went to the Japanese restaurant called Kyoto (in the resort). Kyoto is one of our favorite restaurants in the resort and there are four others with great food too.

Summer Time

What I am Wearing:
AE Shorts (old, similar here, here or here) // MLM top (similar herehere, love this here & thinking of getting this here) // Converse (here)

On hot and humid summer days, I love to wear denim shorts or one teaspoon Bandit shorts paired Converse, Keds or adidas shoes and on such days, frozen yogurt always comes to mind. I have a weakness for frozen yogurt and now, Nolan and hubby have developed taste buds for frozen yogurt. I often go on frozen yogurt dates with Nolan which is always fun and exciting (not just for him).

Summer Work Style

work style, jcrew gingham skirt,
What I Am Wearing:
JCrew skirt (here, also got this skirt here & here ) // Top (here, also love this herehere) // Christian Louboutin pumps (here, budget friendly here, here & more here)

At times, it is difficult to decide what to wear on hot and humid summer days. On such days, I prefer light fabric midi skirts, pencil skirts, ankle pants, dresses and tops.

The gingham fabric midi skirt on this post has a length that fits a summer work day and at the same time, adds fun to the outfit in terms of the prints and color. Work styles are no longer boring or limited to monotone feels since color and fun patterns can update looks. For this look, I mixed two patterns and colors but maintained a common color scheme i.e. pink. I completed the look with neutral pumps to tie everything together.

What I Am Wearing

Happy first day of summer and hope you all had a great weekend. It was an amazing weekend of celebration with Nolan's birthday on Friday and Father's day on Sunday. Nolan received so many trucks and dump trucks; thanks to all the aunties and uncles. He was overwhelmed with so much love which I captured on my Snapchat (@Jadore-Fashion). Talking about Snapchat, I did a fun Q&A session, check it out before it's gone.

I am kicking off summer in this bell sleeve from Chicwish at a colorful location. The dramatic sleeves and gentle feel of the material makes it great for hot and humid summer days. You can also pair it with a short or a skirt for brunch or a day out.

Wow… Nolan is three years old today and I am still amazed; it feels like yesterday when he turned one, two and now he is three. God is definitely amazing; I remember vividly when I announced my pregnancy here and my nervousness on becoming a first time mum. This journey as a mum has been wonderful and Nolan has brought nothing but joy and happiness to our family.
The joy of knowing that this 'little man' belongs to me is priceless and words can't explain how much I love him. 

I mentioned on my Instagram two days ago asking him what he wanted for his birthday. While I was not expecting him to say much, my smart cookie responds by saying, "I want cake, balloon and a dump truck". I have no idea where he got the idea of a dump truck but I am sure he will be receiving lots of dump trucks today. ;)

Fun Facts About Nolan

One of the first off-shoulder pieces I acquired is this Chicwish frilling outfit. The cascading sleeve detail is so unique and different that it can be dressed up or casually. I paired the off shoulder top with denim shorts casually over the weekend and for this post, I took a formal approach by pairing it with wide-leg pants for the all-white look - definitely a fun and versatile piece.

Is that season when everyone is gearing up for their summer vacations. In case you are wondering what type of swimsuit to purchase, I have come of with must-have swimsuits this summer. Some of the must-have swimsuits on trend are one pieces swimsuits, two piece swimsuit with high-neck top, high-waisted swimsuit bottoms and swimsuit with cut-outs.

During my stay in Barcelo Bavaro Palace in Punta Cana, I wore mainly one piece swimsuits. The first swimsuit that I wore is this Salinas' cut-out one piece with vibrant colors. I also wore this gingham one piece swimsuit with an open back details.

There is a growing trend of “off the shoulder tops and dresses” and this Rebecca Taylor dress feels much more.

These pictures make me relive the wonderful memories of our trip to the Dominican Republic and our stay at the gorgeous Barceló Bavaro Resort.

Most of the items I packed for the trip were light and fun to complement the location. I wore this 'Lovers & Friends' top and shorts to lunch and after lunch we hung out around the beach volleyball area while Nolan played on the beach.

I incorporated a statement necklace to the deep cut neck line of the top and the front tie closure creates a fun feel. I completed the look with my Melissa flats (not pictured).

Vacation Style: Overall + Off Shoulder top

madewell overall, Punta cana, dominican republic, barcelo bavaro deluxe,
What I Am Wearing:
Madewell overall (here or here) // Top (here, similar here & here) // Hat (similar here or here) // Lipstick 'Lady Danger' (here)
// Nolan's overall (similar here  here & here) // Nolan's top (here)

This is another look from my trip to Punta Cana, DR. During our stay at the Barceló Bavaro Palace, we spent a lot of time on the beach and at the pool. I love the resort and the scenery especially, the picturesque view of the ocean. I often lay on the beach enjoying my magazines while Nolan had a blast playing with the white sand with daddy.

I love to travel with rompers or playsuits (click here to see my prior post on shopping for vacation) and when I packed my white overall, I thought it will be fun and cute to pack Nolan's and have a 'twin' moment. You should have seen his face when he saw me wearing a similar overall...priceless! I paired my overall with a stripe off the shoulder top and I love the exaggerated sleeves. For Nolan, I paired his overall with a white tee with a neon green graphic print.
