Those Hats!! #NYFW

So this New York Fashion Week was all about the baked hats… didn’t know they were really in style until I saw pretty much every body wearing them! When I bought mine I bought them because during this time of year New York is super hot and humid and my hair goes crazy! Kind of as an emergency on-the-go accessory …. just in case and I ended up wearing them almost every day!…. I think all of you can relate to me when I say ALL bloggers and models were wearing these cuties, they were all over my explore page and I kept on loving them even more.

I am literally in a coffee shop expressing myself how much I am obsessed with these hats and even wearing one right now haha… I have added a shopping link where you can purchase them in different styles and colors 🙂 Hope you enjoy your happy hat shopping!

Hi loves,

Before I head over to New York this week and start the mayhem of what will be fashion week, I want to share a recent trip I took with 6 other lady bloggers as myself to Napa Valley in California. We were invited by Girl Talk Network which is a non-profit organization bringing together women to empower other women to become their best self. At first, I did not know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. The trip was not only about brand exposure, but also a way to connect and make new friendships in the blogger world, open up new doors to different collaborations opportunities, and most of all enjoy a beautiful scenery that was cohesive with the free and beautiful vibe that all these women were giving off. It was an amazing trip especially given the bonds that were created. I definitely got a sense of what Girl Talk is all about and I want to encourage my followers to at least head over to their page and become educated about their program because it is a strong and beautiful concept.

In addition, we had the chance to work with brands as well, which I absolutely love! As many of you know I adore Patricia Nash. She is a designer that I have been wearing  since the beginning of my blog. I have a few of her handbags, but none of them compare to this tooled turquoise bag. It is a definite head turner and extremely comfortable for travel. Patricia Nash Designs have a unique embroidery, silhouette, and design to each style which makes all their products special.

We also had on board one of my favorite online shopping sites JustFab . As many of you know my blog is centered around budget friendly and fashionable pieces. This is exactly what JustFab promotes. The have cute and stylish pieces still being amazingly affordable. They were kind enough to outfit us while we were in Napa, but check out their comfy sweaters and showstopping sneaks ! JustFab recently expanded from selling just shoes to selling all kinds of on trend pieces and you all have access to that on their webpage.

Plus have you seen their new shoes just in for boot season? Not to worry, you can check out their new Fall styles here!

SUMMER SUNNIES

As many of you know I absolutely adore sunglasses! So, in honor of that,  today I’m sharing my top favorite summer sunnie trends. Currently I am going crazy for yellow hued shades. They have a transparency to them that adds a slightly edgy yet chic touch to an outfit. Some of my favorite shapes include aviators and round ! It might be an odd trend to get used and it may not be for everyone, but try them out! You might fall in love with them just like I did.

Another top trend that I gave into recently is oversized pop-art sunnies. Yes, I’m talking colorful and almost cartoonish sunglasses. I love them because they are a statement piece that, when outfitted correctly, ties in a whole look. I wear oversized sunnies a lot, but I definitely needed some time to get used to these ones ! That’s normal with new trends so remember not to shy away from something that you are not comfortable with !

 

Lastly, I can’t get enough of mirrored sunglasses. A couple of summers back, I also got very attached to the trend, but I think this summer I dig more of the metallic rose-gold and silver colors. Below are some of my favorites, and to be honest these sunnies can be found at low-cost priced stores such as Forever21, CottonOn, and H&M.

SHOP THE SUNNIES !

HAIR ACCESSORIES

I am loving hair accessories right now! From headbands to hats to flower crowns, you name it!! Wanted to share this special post so all can tell how much I wear them on a daily basis and one can mix and match with a casual outfit.

I usually wear headbands when I am at the beach but this time I decided to wear them for a night out in the town, I love the pop o red it brings to the outfit and the best part is I bought it at a vintage shop brand being Carolina Herrera (I love when I find these things)…

There are more looks down below and don forget you can shop the look in the link below.

SILVER LAYER

So today’s post is all about my favorite short jeans since the weather has still been hot and as much as I would like to wear skinny jeans it’s not possible. I tend to wear a lot of vintage stuff now and then and these shorts I ended up cutting them myself from a pair of vintage Levi’s denim men jeans. I love the baggy feel to them, which makes it easier to wear them with tees or oversized vnecks (which is my favorite look of the season).

Hope you guys enjoyed it and as you can tell I usually wear them with white shirts and sneakers (per usual)… for Summer I end up wearing more casual looks since it is easy to accessorize with headbands or cute sunglasses… I guess accessories for me a pop of something is always a must 🙂
