Guess who’s back…

I’m finally back from a month long hiatus.  My family and I went on our annual vacation to Florida and had a wonderful time visiting our families and friends.  Unfortunately, our trip wasn’t without a bit of sadness as my maternal grandfather passed away the day before we were to begin our road trip down to Florida. It has been a very difficult time for me and my family, but I know he was a man of God and lived a prosperous life.  

Thankfully, I was able to celebrate the life of my grandfather and be with my family in Miami for the first several days of our trip.  For the second half of our trip, we traveled up to Orlando and stayed with the hubs’ family. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip.

Stripes and Polka Dots

Since I own similar pieces, I immediately fell in love with this outfit inspiration on Pinterest.  The weather has been crazy hot here so I decided to make this an easy summer look.  Stripes, polka dots, and navy are a match made in heaven. 

On another note, my family and I are headed on our annual Florida vacation to spend time with our familia and also have some much needed R&R.  Unfortunately, with this trip comes a lot of sadness. My maternal grandfather has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed away.  I plan on sharing some of our family experiences on Instagram so hopefully the happy moments fill up my heart.

Summer Love… Mint and Coral

I paired mint and coral for the first time last summer and was immediately in love with the combination. Since then, I’ve become obsessed with the color mint.  Finding new ways to wear it is always so much fun and never disappointing.

Summer Print Mixing


I’m a fan of mixing prints and patterns.  This time, I decided to pair my floral pencil skirt with a white and pink gingham button down for a fresh summer look.  I completed my look with my first pair of shoes from Sole Society.  I love the neutral color of the shoes and the bow gives it a distinctive look.

Black, White and Green...

I purchased this geometric black and white top during the winter season on major clearance at JCPenney. I was so excited to wear it once the weather warmed up, but I couldn’t decide the best way to style it.  After seeing ladies on Pinterest pairing blacks, whites, and greens together, I knew right away the top would go perfectly with one of my favorite colored pencil skirts.

Pastel Green and Lilac

It’s great when unexpected things come together, like this color combination. I personally would have never thought of pairing pastel green with lilac, but then again I’ve never owned anything pastel or light green until a few weeks back when my friend and I put together a garage sale.  She had a table full of items from a coworker and I was able to find some great things like this beautiful JCrew sweater for only $2.00.
