Fall must have.

One thing to remember when shopping for fall items: socks, stockings & tights are a must have. If you are like me who still prefers wearing cute clothes such as dresses, shorts, skirts etc, these must have items are essential for my outfits. I say shop for them now since many of these winter pieces are on sale from last fall.
I just got these four items for under $20 dollars at Laila Rose. Get yours and be ready for fall!

Shopping for my fall must have's :)

One skirt, Two ways

One skirt, Two ways: Jersey maxi skirt

Any outfit pieces can be versatile. Take this maxi dress for example that I purchased last fall. I pared it with a button up, gray heels and a thin gray belt so that it can still look professional. I also kept my accessories to the minimal. Later, I switched to a more casual shirt and wedges to go out and about.

White button up top, $19.00 h&m stores
Navy & beige jersey cotton skirt, $14.95
Thin gray belt, $6.90

Lust for JC Laced

Oh my oh my... This is a must have for fall!
I am not a big fan of  the JC Lita shape but this.. this is just beautiful. I think it could  be because of all the details on the shoes or even the color but I must have it. Thanks to my wonderful sister for getting it for me as a b-day gift. Love you, Maxi!

 Get yours and be ready for Fall.
Laced in Gray by Jeffrey Campbell $160-170 price range

Flats with dresses... yes please!

I love my heels but sometimes a break from them is a good thing. So once in a while, I will rock my flats with my dresses ( and not as back to change into;). I may not feel as sexy but it sure is comfy! and sometimes being comfortable is priority over looking sexy.

We added a new addition to the fam this weekend. His name is Titan. He is a teacup pomerania and his hair is just unruly but we love him. I wore this dress to meet the breeder and to pick up our new son, Titan. Wearing flats helped since we had to walk around a lot  get his goodies from petsmart and petco. Running around the whole day is tiring and I am so glad I went with my choice of flats.

On me:

Asos color block cut out dress, $35.00
Woven fedora hat, $6.90
Turquoise stone necklace, $ 7.80
love bracelet, $8.70
Canvas beige flats, $19.00
Damier Azur canvas speedy, $750.00

meet Titan Elliott, our cutey pie monkey face puppy.

Spotted: Orange and Rust for Fall

I know I know... summer barely started and we are already talking about fall but with fashion if you don't keep up with the trends... you will fall behind.

They are everywhere; on stars, runways and magazines. Get your orange and rust color pieces and be ready to be a show stopper for fall season.

I think it's ok to start rocking my orange and rust pieces right now. lol

Life is beautiful

Live Laugh and Love…Life is beautiful

Taupe bag deal

I have been on a hunt for cute taupe color bag. And I finally found one the other day at Aldo store. It's big enough to fit all my necessity and still have extra room for my other misc items  that I carry such as my dslr, extra flats for my my feet get tired of wearing heels, etc.  For the price of $50, it's definitely deal. The texture is very leather like that you can't tell that it's inexpensive. I am a very happy shopper:)

p.s I once wore this as a dress... just because I love it so much.. i wore it again as a top:)

Lime garden and Harry Potter

Yup, my blog title is a little odd. lol. I titled it lime garden because-Yes I am a HARRY POTTER fanatic and also because my outfit for our Harry Potter movie date night was in theme of garden and lime. 

Lime is really not my go-to color. It's a hard color to pull off (partly because like my hubby says it reminds him of puke. lol) but I saw this cute sweetheart mesh dress in forever21 and thought why not. I added a touch of floral head piece I got from h&m for $5 ( hell yeah, a deal! ) to add a bit more girlish feel to it. 

When it comes to finding your own style and developing fashion, you have to take your risk on some colors or styles even if it may not look as good as what you see in the runaway or magazines. 

 I follow a quote that goes to say "You have to be a fashion risk-taker and be a person who tries everything and loves it."  

On me:
floral head piece, $5.95 h&m stores
Silver leaf earrings, $12.00
Heart tiffany pendant,
Lime sweetheart tulip dress, $22.90 forever21 stores
Off white Pink Duchess wedges, $42.00
Tan vintage clutch, $5.00
Damier Azur Canvas Speedy 35, $750.00

Pf. Changs for din din. yummmm
