Look of the Day: For Real

This outfit is my new favorite! I’ve had this dress for years but kept it out of rotation for a while, but my new favorite vintage handbag plus my chambray shirt and orange platforms have given it new life. Finding a new way to wear an old favorite is as exciting to me as shopping for a new one.
This one I wore to a birthday lunch with friends to the Phoenix Art Museum a few weeks agos, but I highly suspect it will be seeing a lot of sunlight this summer. In fact, I might just wear it again this weekend to celebrate Mother’s Day. How are you guys planning to pamper your mom on their well deserved holiday?
Whatever your plans, I hope you enjoy them!

Look of the Day: Leather + Neon

I am once again on a bus, this time headed back home, and a little sad that a weekend is just not enough time to see and catch up with everyone I would’ve liked to. However, I will be back in my hometown to celebrate New Year’s Eve, and I’ll have a few more days then, so hopefully I can manage to meet up with all my friends & family.
Now, about today’s look, it was a very easy one to put together because it involves several of my favorite trends and classics: leather skirt + turtleneck+ b&w stripes + neon + statement necklace + mary janes with a twist. You pretty much can’t go wrong when involving any of these pieces in an outfit… and putting them all together into one, well, that’s just fabulous in my book.
As you know from previous posts (like this one and this one), I am obsessed with neon yellow, and this necklace is by far my favorite piece of neon I own. I just can’t get enough of it but hadn’t had the chance to show it off here on the blog. It was such a fantastic find, I got it on sale at Dillard’s for just around $12!!
Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend and wishing you an even better week ahead.

Look of the Day: Vest of the 90’s

Today’s look is one that I wore on my trip to Cabo, but since I didn’t really have anyone to take pictures of it over there, I decided to wear it during last weekend’s Looks of the Day photoshoot (and I’ll probably do some more Cabo looks that way, so stay tuned for those).

I am a big fan of vests (I might’ve already mentioned that) because I feel they really add that little extra something to make an outfit special, not to mention they are great layering pieces. I am particularly fond of cropped vests because they highlight one of my best assets, my waist.┬áThis denim vest is a recent adquisition, and I am in love with it, but also a little bit disturbed because it is soooo 90’s.

I’m sure it’s not news to you that 90’s fashion is back and the fact that the 90’s are now retro is exactly what’s bugging me! I mean, I can actually remember 90’s fashion, I lived it, I wore it… when it was brand new… Am I getting old or what?! (Don’t answer that!).

Anyway, regardless of my ‘getting old’ issues, I am fully embracing taking a trip down memory lane thanks to the new old 90’s trends. And I’ll definitely be re-visiting some of my favorite looks and pieces from that era, so stay tuned for that as well.
Do you have any favorite looks from the 90’s? Please share! They might serve as wonderful inspiration for future outfits.
