Bump Style: White Dress

pregnancy style, midi white dress,
What I Am Wearing:
Dress (Non-maternity for $43 here or here, love this here/here...more white dress here/here; maternity white dress here) // Earring (here, more here) // Christian Louboutin pumps (here, budget friendly here)

I look for 'stretchy' pieces when styling my bump because they are very comfortable and adjust to the waist line. With such pieces, I have the flexibility of shopping not only from the maternity section but from all clothing sections as such, I can wear the same clothes after my pregnancy .This is why I love this white dress ; I definitely plan on wearing it after my pregnancy and the dress will be a great outfit to a spring/summer event. For a pop of color, I paired with bold blue drop earrings.

What I Am Wearing:
Off shoulder top (here/ more herehere/here) // Jeans (similar here/here/here) // Chloe bag (options here, here)

Happy Easter and Happy Friday! Today’s post is something light and casual for the Easter weekend. First, I want to thank you all for the love shown regarding our pregnancy announcement. You had me tearing up (probably the hormones...LOL!). I sincerely appreciate it all! xoxo

I am enjoying the spring warm weather and I am so excited to style my growing bump. While some outfit pieces might change slightly, my style will remain the same. I will continue to wear outfits that are not limited to expecting mums for example, Off shoulder tops   remain must haves for spring and summer! This stripe off shoulder tunic is on sale for less than $45. The "flowy" feel makes it perfect for my bump. I love the ruffle trimmed elastic shoulder and puffy sleeves. It is light and airy for spring/summer.

White denim is another piece that I am loving right now. It is a great fresh take to the season. The combination of the light blue off shoulder and white jeans adds a fresh start to my Easter weekend.

Have a great Easter weekend! P.S. Last day to shop 25% off at Shopbop.

Personal Shopping Assistant: eBay ShopBot

At times, shopping could be time consuming when it takes a while to find something perfect within my budget or when I am looking for an item I spot online or in a magazine. During these shopping moments, I wish I had a personal shopping assistant or something that will make shopping a lot easier.

My wish came true a few weeks ago when I was introduced to eBay ShopBot...omg! I have been obsessed with it ever since! I always use eBay to search for prior designs of shoes and clothing and if you use eBay, the ShopBot is right at your fingertips and it will make things easier.

I bet you are wondering what eBay ShopBot is all about; eBayShopBot is your own 'personal shopping assistant' right inside Facebook Messenger. It helps simplify your shopping experience. It 's like texting your own personal assistant or friend with what you are looking for or simply taking a picture of an item that you are searching for and it will return a list of items that fit your criteria. All you need is a mobile phone and you will have that personal shopping experience. One of my favorite aspect of the ShopBot is the ability to search using text, photos or by speech. You can also save your clothing sizes and it will always search items within those ranges. It works best using your phone. It is also best to take the picture against a plain background because it can pick up surrounding items which could hinder the search.

How To Use eBay ShopBot
  1. Download the Facebook Messenger app for iOs or Android if you don't have it already Add "ebay ShopBot” as a friend
  2. Click "Start Shopping" above to get a message from ShopBot
  3. In Facebook Messenger, take a picture of the fashion item that you are looking for or type in a word to get started.
  4. You can also customize your search by color, price, and size

My experience with the ShopBot has been a good one. I searched by typing ‘Miu Miu round sunglasses’ into the Messenger and I was amazed at the options returned. I was able to save those I liked and modified the descriptions and price for budget friendly options. I also took a picture of my Chloe shoulder bag to search for similar budget friendly shoulder bags and similar items were returned. 

My blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay.

Monochromatic For Work

work style, grey tones, monochromatic,
What I Am Wearing:
Skirt (here, similar here, more options here/here) // Cami top (here - go down a size for this cami, more tops here) // Zara coat (old, try this herehere or here, more here)

Today is all about a monochromatic work style look. It is fun to dabble in different color spectrums as shown in my previous work style in a yellow toned look here - bold and bright for spring.

Today's look revolves around grey tones and while it is subtle, it still creates a presence. Here are some tips to styling different shades: To comfortably style a monochromatic look, it is best to start with colors you find comfortable or muted ones such as navy, grey or brown. Try incorporating different shades/color tones and texture as this will help create a visible dimension to the look.

For today’s post, I paired a wool pencil skirt and a coat. I applied the 'different shades tip' by mixing different shades of grey with the grey cami. I completed the look with black pumps for emphasis.

Gingham Midi Skirt

What I Am Wearing:
Skirt (here, more skirts here, more gingham pieces here) // Cami top (here - go down a size for this cami, more tops here) // Payless shoes (c/o here, similar here/here)  // Forever 21 trench (here, options here/here)

Happy New Month Friends and Hello April! The days are going by so fast and it is beautiful seeing the spring flowers blossom and the weather is warming up which makes me happy. With spring in the air, it is time to bring out the trench coat since Trench coats and spring go hand in hand - perfect accessories for casual and work looks.

Today's look is a work style inspired look tailored to the spring weather. This gingham midi pencil skirt has an elegant and fun twist to it. The gingham pattern is a must-have for spring. The side slits add a fun feel to the skirt and I paired the skirt with a light grey V-neck cami. The cami complements the gingham colors and the racerback detail adds another fun take to the look. I completed the look with a black trench coat and a yellow block heel for a pop of's spring, so why not add some color!

Khaki Mix

High waist pants, satined jacket, leopard pumps.
What I Am Wearing:
Pants (here, love this here/here, more here) // Tee (here, love this /here/here, more options here) // Jacket ($39 here, more here/here) // Leopard pumps (here/here, similar budget friendly here/)

These khaki pants remain one of my favorites today. Prior to purchasing the one on this post, I was skeptical about the high-rise waist and the fit but to my surprise, it was amazing after I tried it. The belt buckle closure helps with the waist adjustment and it defines the waist area.

For today’s look, I took a casual approach by styling it with a graphic tee. Graphic tees pair very well with most outfits and I added the “satin” green jacket for a pop of color and a combination of khaki and green is appealing. I completed the look with leopard pumps to complement the khaki while adding a unique feel to the whole ensemble.

What I Am Wearing:
Skirt (here, love this here/here, more here) // Top (here, try this here/here) // Aquazzura pumps (old, try this here/here, more pink options here)

I am starting this week with a fun flamingo ruffle hem skirt that has captivating prints and the style makes it perfect for spring. The tropical print and ruffle volume made me fall in love with the skirt. For today’s post, my goal was to make the skirt the focus and this off-shoulder top complements the black undertone of the skirt perfectly. The pink pumps bring out the pink colors on the skirt and at the same time, add a fun and vibrant element to the look.

Happy Friday! Today, I am featuring a casual and relaxed weekend look consisting of a pair of jeans, a lovely Chicwish balloon sleeve top and flats for running errands. I love the top’s uniqueness and this exaggerated balloon sleeve top  caught my attention. I see myself dressing it up with a pencil skirt or with white wide-leg pants or casually in jeans. It is worth adding to your closet and the blush blue color is just perfect for spring.

What I Am Wearing:
Gingham top (here, love this here/here, more gingham here) // Tee (here) // Bag (here/here) // Mules (here, also love this here/here/here) // Earring (here, more here)

As a big fan of gingham patterns, I am looking forward to the trend this spring and summer. Not only is this gingham ruffled top fun and versatile, the corset feel of the top and the ruffle detail makes it unique.  

It can be worn as an individual piece or layered with a tee or button down shirt as shown in my previous layering style here. For a casual spring look, I paired it with a pair of jeans and my mules. The yellow mules add a pop of color that complements the drop yellow earrings.  Mules remain a trend that is still going strong from last year.

 What I Am Wearing:
 Skirt (old, try here/here/here) // Chicwish top (c/o here in S/M,  yellow version here) //  Shoes (here, budget friendly here/here /here)

I have worn several black pencil skirts in the past and their stretchy nature makes them very comfortable. Not only do I love pencil skirts, the combination of a black pencil skirt and a stripe top is one of my wardrobe essentials making this stripe wrap top from Chicwish irresistible.

It is a unique and an unconventional stripe top and the wrap detail of the cold shoulder top captured my attention and the timeless black and white stripes makes it a versatile top that can be paired with a skirt, with pants or casually with a pair of jeans. As a stripe lover, I plan on getting the yellow version for spring and summer.

Today’s look is styled in preparation for the spring as such, I paired a stripe top  with my bright orange high-waisted wide-leg pants. I have had the pants for a few years and the color and gold button detail makes it standout. 

I wore a beige coat with pumps to create a neutral feel and this will make a great work style this spring. I have a thing with color and the colored pants on today’s post brightens up my day.

Striped tops are must-haves for every wardrobe and they come in handy when mixing prints or styling looks for casual or formal events. I have had the striped top on this post for years and I have styled it in different ways and for a work style too.

For today's look, I paired the striped top with striped sailor pants. The nautical-inspired pants are high-waisted with wide legs.  I love the front button and lace-up back detail... great pants for spring.

Happy International Women's Day! In honor of the day, I am wearing a suit that exudes boldness, brightness and class and I love the structure of the power suit.

Dove DermaCare Shampoo

Dove DermaCare Shampoo,

During the winter I’m constantly battling a flaky scalp and dry skin. Today, I want to share with you my new favorite line in anti-dandruff solutions. Dove Hair recently released their new DermaCare Scalp series and I’ve never been happier. After a few days of washing my hair with the Dove DermaCare Scalp Pure Daily Care 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner, I noticed a huge difference. My scalp has stopped itching and my hair is now flake free. It leaves my hair nourished and smooth, and I love how it smells! It has a fresh rosemary smell that is pleasant but the most important thing is that it stopped the itching. When I am not using the DermaCare Scalp Pure Daily Care 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner, I love to use the Dove DermaCare Scalp Invigorating Mint Shampoo which moisturizes my scalp and leaves my hair with a fresh minty scent. In partnership with Dove Hair!

Work Style: Layering For Spring

Work Style - Layering For Spring,
What I Am Wearing:
Skirt (here, similar here) // Ankara top (custom made, try this here/here) // Shirt (here/here) // JCrew pumps (here, try these here/here/here/here)

I enjoy mixing colors, prints and patterns and this remains true when it comes to work style. I personally believe work style should be fun and a great way to achieve this is by incorporating hints of colors or accessories. Spring and summer makes work style layering easy and fun and at the same time, provides a great way to transition between seasons.

For today’s post, I layered a white button down shirt and an African Ankara print peplum top .The Ankara top adds a unique feel to the whole outfit and I completed the look with my favorite velvet green pumps that complements the skirt and top.

Shirtdress and OTK Boots

Shirtdress and over the knee boots,
What I Am Wearing:
Shirt dress (here, love these here/here/here) // Over The Knee (OTK) boots (here, love this here/here)

Welcome to March 2017 friends! The year is going by so fast and I look forward to warmer days. The 'shirtdress' on this post is an oversized shirt (as described on their website) and I fell in love with the volume, layered fill hem and exaggerated sleeves. When I received it, I instinctively thought about pairing with a set of OTK boots. I have had these Over-the-knee boots for about two years and they are very comfortable and easy to slip on. OTK boots are great ways to style shirtdresses or short dresses during this season. The dress speaks for itself so I kept the styling and accessories at a minimum.
