Weekend trips are the best! I love going on mini-getaways for the weekend with my husband and experiencing a new place, new food, and new surroundings. This past weekend, we made our way up to St. Augustine, FL, which is the oldest city in the United States and is known for its Spanish colonial. From Miami, it was about a 4 and a half hour drive away, which isn’t too bad!
Today’s blog post isn’t about fashion, but a more more personal post. It definitely isn’t something that I had intended on sharing, but I figured, it has been on my mind so much, I might as well put it out into the universe and share. I do feel like it is important for me to sometimes vear off into topics that are not just fashion, or beauty related. I want to share with you all some real life issues I have and would love your feedback in return.
I am the kind of girl to wear old t-shirts to bed. But lately, I have had the urge to change up my pajama game and actually wear nice things to sleep or to lounge around the house. It definitely makes me feel nicer and more confident, so why not? These Calvin Klein pieces are extremely comfortable and look super cute! They are perfect for taking on all of my trips (which I have been doing) because they are so light weight and don’t take up too much space in my suitcase.
Two months ago, the hubby and I attended one of my good friend’s wedding. When I asked her what the attire was, she explained to me that she envisioned a “garden party”, which I was so excited about. Tyronne and I decided to somewhat coordinate our looks, and I am so happy we did. I actually love his look way more than mine. I am a sucker for men in floral print lately. I just love the mix of a feminine print on a masculine man. Anyone else like this look?
In the past two years, I have become a bit of a blush lover. I have never been a fan of any color that is in the pink family, but for some reason (I guess I blame social media), I have developed a real love for the color blush. I even had my bridesmaids wear the color blush for my wedding, that is how much I am committed to the color. And what better color to pair blush with than my most favorite neutral: black!
Today I wanted to share with you all an easy, comfortable and casual style that is a go-to of mine. The outfit consists of a bodysuit, my favorite oversized cardigan, my favorite soft jeans, and a fun pair of sandals. This look is great for running errands, grabbing a quick bite to eat, heading out to the movies and simply hanging out with your friends!
Today, I am so excited to share with you our wedding highlight video created by the talented Kevin Borge Films! Words can’t even begin to describe how much fun we had on our wedding day. From getting ready early that morning with my girls, to sharing our first look before all the festivities, then our perfect ceremony and finally, our beautiful reception, we has such an amazing day and wouldn’t change a thing! The best part of our day was celebrating such a huge milestone in our lives with our closest family and friends (who we consider our family).
Just a little back story on our wedding: Tyronne and I got married on February 25, 2017 in Miami, FL. Our ceremony was held at was St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Miami Beach and our reception was held at The Hotel Colonnade in Coral Gables. Both of these locations were perfect for the vision we had for our wedding day. We both loved the idea of a black-tie wedding, where everyone gets all dressed up for a few hours and celebrates with us. It’s not often that people get to wear tuxedo’s or gowns, so we really wanted our guests to attend a fancy affair!
I will share more details with you once I start working on our complete wedding day post with our wedding photos (which I just received last night! Yay!). I can’t wait to share every single detail with you!
A special thank you to our amazing videographer Kevin Borge! You can find more of his work here:

I want to start this post off by saying that I love to shop and have new clothing, shoes, accessories, etc., just like most girls. And since I love to shop, I have come to love the finer things in life. But the finer things in life cost a lot of money, unfortunately. And I am definitely not able to go out and buy the newest and latest designer trends. I have to save up for them. Sometimes for years. Well that is what happened with these beautiful heels!
If you would have asked my 10 year old self if I would have ever worn so much pink, I would have laughed in your face. I used to make fun of my mom for loving it so much and for always wearing pink lipstick. I literally hated pink. Growing up, I loved the color purple. Not necessarily to wear, but just in general. Pink was definitely not a color I would even touch. Well that has definitely changed as of late!
In my defense, I really just love light pink and blush. I still cannot stand hot pink or magenta or any sort of dark pink shade. So that is how I rationalize my hate for pink growing up.
Lately, I have been trying to channel my inner Parisian woman. I just love how effortless and chic their style is and how confident they carry themselves. Parisian women definitely have that “Je ne se quoi” about them, and I absolutely love it! For this look, I was trying to hone in on my Parisian look with my loafers and draping my jacket over my shoulder. Do you all think I am Parisian yet?
