BFSC / Summer Sweater

It's summertime... I know.  It's my favorite time of year!  I always look forward to busting out the maxi dresses and cute sandals but this year in LA, the weather has been a bit.. well.. gloomy!  Some days are super sunny while other days are cloudy and grey.  Either way, you gotta stay fab so I decided to wear this lightweight cropped sweater given to me by my good friend. 

Sweater: Gifted || Jeans: Macy's || Shoes: Cathy Jean || Jewelry: GTG

Bracelets available at my store

Gold link necklace coming soon to GTG!

BFSC Checklist is winding down!  I'm wearing something cropped and Hi Lo..

Do you ever rock sweaters in the summer?

BFSC: Sexy in flats...

What a weekend!!!  I hosted a wine party with my wine club, had an unexpected girls night IN and did a shopping day with my mom.. All of this fun and of course absolutely NO homework was completed this weekend! Bad Ari *slaps hand* Oh well, what can I say.. sometimes you gotta live a little!

For my shopping day with Mommie, I decided since the clock is ticking on my BFSC challenge outfits, I better get crackin and knock out two of them this weekend.  I wore this cute bodycon midi-length skirt from F21+ and paired it with a cute, sparkly top and jewelled flats.  Even though I wasn't rocking heels, I still felt unexpectedly sexy in this skirt.  Hey now! A little va-va-voom never hurt anybody ;-)

Top: HM || Skirt: F21+ || Sandals: Old || Bag: Chanel

Silver Circle Earrings $14 via my online store!

Casual doesn't always mean Jeans and a T-shirt.  Have some fun with it!

 And just like that two more things off the list - I wore a high waisted bottom and something bodycon! #POW

It still isnt too late to get it in.  Head over to Ms. Jasifer's blog and get in on the action!  Also check out the other lovely ladies submissions from last week here.

BFSC / Adara's First Family Reunion

This year was my daughter's first Family Reunion.  She was definitely the "Belle of the Ball"

I think she had just as much fun as the adults!

For the Meet and Greet on the first night, I chose this beautiful maxi dress I got from a boutique back home in LA...

 Adara wore a Carter's romper with the cutest little sandals.  Her hair bows are from F21.

 I accented my dress with Gold Accessories.   

 Ever just feel like being quiet?  Well that's me today.. Not many words but tons of stuff running through my head..

 Golden Ball Earrings from

Red Jeans

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU all for following my blog and leaving me nice comments every now and then.  I really appreciate your support.  Blogging has really added so much to my life and taught me so many things about shopping, saving and style in general...

Nothing major here, just me rocking my red jeans.  It was a beautiful, sunny California day and I was visiting my mother and decided to snap a few quick pictures.  Enjoy!

Top: Thirfted || Jeans: F21+ || Shoes: Lola || Bag: Gucci

One of my first Gucci bags.  I got this in 2005 and it's still going strong!

Don't you love those cool, casual days?
So I realized that I only have 21 days to complete the Jasifer Lions Club Big Fat Summer Challenge !  I need to get on it!  It ends on my birthday - July 31st which makes me even more game to get on board!

Stay fabulous guys!

Turquoise and Coral

Hey dolls!

Miss me yet?  I just got back from my family reunion in New Orleans and I have tons of cute pics to share!  There is just something about New Orleans... The food, the people.. the DRINKS!  I had a blast and look forward to going back next year!

Before I left, I had my brother's graduation and my friend's wedding all in one day.  I need an outfit that could go from day to night with no fuss.  Here's what I wore...

Blazer: Thrifted || Dress: Nordstroms || Shoes: Guess || Bag: Chanel || Necklace: GTG

In case you haven't noticed, I LOVE purses.  Always have, always will!  It's my only true guilty pleasure.
