Khaki Vest + Jord Watches

1kv363 7 8 4Blouse: TJ Maxx, Vest: Banana Republic, Jeans: American Eagle, Sandals: Target, Watch: c/o Jord Watches, Nails: OPI “Big Apple Red”, Nail Bracelet: c/o Maple Street Boutique, Stacked Rings: Banana Republic

If you haven’t figured out already, Banana Republic is one of my favorite places to shop. I must go into their store about three times a month to see what sales they have going on and to scope out their jewelry section (which I highly recommend). Last week, my best friend and I both picked up this khaki vest and of course I waisted no time to wear it. I styled it with one of my new favorite accessories: my Jord watch!

Jord watches have a very natural look to them because of their wood design. Their watches are very modern and unique, which is what I love about them. I have had multiple people notice my Jord watch and ask “wow, is that made of wood? I have never seen something like it”. It is definitely a talking piece and it is extremely versatile because of the wood coloring. The company uses a variety of natural and sustainable sourced wood that comes from many different parts of the world. Some of their newer series of watches feature bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, zebrawood, and rosewood. The watch I am wearing is their Sydney Series– Cherry and Mother Pearl watch.

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting with me today! I hope you have a great week.

Simple Black Summer Maxi

This summer, I have been playing a lot with my hair styles. I have been testing out a lot of different braids, twists and this one, I call the Ariana Grande. My boyfriend says I look like I am 12 years old, but I received a lot of great feedback from co-workers when I wore my hair like this into work. It is a great style if you want to get your hair out of your face, but still want it down. Also, I like to do this style when my hair is a day old and it starting to get a bit oily. The only issue I had was that my baby hairs were on full display. I am going to need to get some styling cream/gel to paste those babies down the next time.

The summer is all about loose fitting and flowy clothes. The heat in Miami right now is almost unbearable, so I have been wearing all of my maxi dresses that I have had on ice all season. They are coming in handy a lot because I am just accessorizing them differently with new jewelry, hairstyles, sandals and sunglasses.

One thing that I wanted to share with you all this summer is this amazing app that I discovered called Shopular. Once you sign up, you specify your location, and it tells you, via your mobile device, what are the best deals happening close to where you are. You can even select some of your favorite stores to get notifications about. For me, I selected Banana Republic, Loft, Nordstrom, Bloomies, Target and many more! Be sure you go download this app asap! You won’t be disappointed.

Thank you all for stopping by and chatting with me! Talk to you soon.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting the two men behind the company CanvasFab, a Miami based canvas company that’s products are 100% handmade. I can attest to their “100% Handmade With Love” motto, because I was given the grand tour of their office and I was quite fascinated. What I love about CanvasFab is how hands on the owners are in the product making. Everything is done with precise detail from the first to last step.

After visiting CanvasFab, it made me realize what a great gift personalized canvas’s would be. They are perfect for a parents birthday, Mother and Father’s Day, holiday gifts, and even an anniversary gift. Also, their prices are fabulous! They have a special pricing for any 12×12: they are only $12! If that doesn’t make you want to run out and decorate your house with some of your favorite photos, I don’t know what will. For me, CanvasFab created one of my favorite blog photos into a beautiful statement piece and I couldn’t be happier.

If you want add some beautiful personalized pieces to your home or can’t think of a gift for someone special, check out CanvasFab!

How I Wear Leather In The Summer

Bodysuit: M&Co., Shorts: H&M, Heels: BCBG from Stein Mart, Watch: c/o Wristology (Use code “Britt20″ for 20% off), Clutch: J.Crew, Bracelets: c/o Helen’s Jewels, Necklace: c/o Kendra Scott | Photos: Amor Capdevila 

Wearing leather during the summer can be challenging. I love leather so I try to find ways to do it, but still stay cool. These high waisted H&M shorts are the perfect way to incorporate leather into your wardrobe without feeling constricted and hot. For one, I love anything high waisted, so they sold me in that aspect. Two, they are loose around the thigh making them breathable. And three, they can be worn with a crop top during the day and sandals for a daytime look, or worn with something like this body suit and heels for a nighttime look!

Leather to me is so chic so I want to try and wear it year round. Do you wear leather during the summer time? If so, how do you pair your leather items?

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting with me today! Talk to you all soon and have a great weekend!

Classic Glasgow Lady

A nautical style is one of my favorite styles to wear during the summer time. The color combination of navy and white is just perfect together, and it is a great color palette for the summer time.

This was the first time I tried a Daniel Wellington watch. Recently, a coworker (and friend) of mine told me about their watches because she was planning on purchasing one for her fiance. When I saw them, I absolutely loved the look of them. The one I am wearing is the Classic Glasgow in Silver. It also comes in gold. I actually liked mixing the metals. As you can see, I paired it with my favorite Banana Republic bangle.

I hope you all have a great Friday and beautiful weekend! Thanks for stopping by.

Summer Cardigan

IMG_9476IMG_9526IMG_9494IMG_9520 IMG_9500 IMG_9482 IMG_9477IMG_9473IMG_9525 IMG_9468IMG_9529 (1) IMG_9510IMG_9418Sweater: Banana Republic, Blouse: Imagining Voyage from TJ Maxx, Jeans: H&M, Sandals: Target, Sunglasses: BCBGeneration

Pretty much every single day, I bring a cardigan into work. It can be 90 degrees outside, but inside my office, it is always arctic temperature. I have even resorted to bringing in a throw blanket to my job, which I keep tucked away in a drawer. More and more, I take out my blanket to wrap myself up for the cold office weather (all my coworkers get a kick out of my blanket-chic look).

I wore this look to work recently, which kept me perfectly warm all day long. This cardigan is definitely a favorite of mine, because when you roll up the sleeves, there is a baby blue lining that I love. I bought it a long time ago from Banana Republic, which if you didn’t know, is one of my favorite stores. I love going in when they have a sale, because I score some of the best items; especially their jewelry! I recently purchased a few great pieces from BR (which you can see on my Instagram- @bisousbrittany).

I hope you all are having a great week so far! Thanks for stopping by.

Flawless Summer Skin

This post is sponsored by Veet.
IMG_9676IMG_9689IMG_9681veet 1IMG_9674Skincare is extremely important to me. I tend to battle with acne on occasion, so it has taken me some time to figure out what is right for my skin and what works best for it. I am constantly trying new products to keep my skin looking and feeling fresh. With summer here in Miami, it is even more important to keep my skin looking flawless. For my face, I make sure to visit the dermatologist monthly, where I get all of the impurities removed, as well as a light chemical peel. In conjunction with visiting the dermatologist, I only use fragrance free products, such as Cetaphil and CeraVe. Since I have sensitive skin, it is important to not use anything that will irritate my skin. Along with my skincare routine, I have to make sure to remove any fine hairs on my face. Hair can clog pores, which creates a whole other issue. So every two weeks, I will get my eyebrows threaded, and I love using my Veet wax stripes for my upper lip area. These two things keep my skin looking flawless and help me feel confident and beautiful at all times! What I love most about the Veet wax stripes is that the results last for so long, leaving me hair free for a couple of weeks. What girl wouldn’t love that? I would love to hear about how you keep your skin looking impeccable during the summertime! Let me know.

HERMESSICO

One of my favorite go to looks is a simple tee, jeans and a pair of strappy heels. When in doubt of what to wear to a lunch, dinner date or a girls night out, this outfit is perfect! I topped off my look with a pair of mirrored Ray Bans and my favorite leather jacket. This is a “cool” and chic look, if I do say so myself and is great for every body type.

This weekend was quite a hectic weekend for me. I am finishing up two classes for my MBA right now, we had my aunts birthday, my sisters graduation, and a slight apartment issue late last night. It has been a crazy weekend, so I am hoping this week isn’t too chaotic.

Have a great Monday all!

Classic & Old Fashion

712161 1551411 1069 8   3 213Top: H&M, Skirt: Zara, Bracelet & Necklace: Banana Republic, Wedges: Steve Madden

Shooting this look reminded me of a 1950’s style because of the a-line Zara skirt. It is funny how fashion always repeats itself, but comes back more a little more improved the next time around. I love channeling other era’s and adding a modern twist to it, and that is exactly what I did with this look. I paired my a-line skirt with a pair of wedges for the perfect summer outfit.

Soon on the blog, I will be sharing with you all some photos from my best friends wedding this past weekend. If you are interested in a sneak peak, head over to my Instagram: @bisousbrittany, for some of the photos I already posted!

I hope you all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by.
