Summer means a lot of outdoor fun and activities for everybody and one of them are picnics. A visit to the park with family and friends for a get together. This romper would be a nice outfit for picnics. It is easy to wear, one and done and can be paired with any type of summer shoes like slides, sandals and the likes.

I wore this simple but chic romper and paired it with my favorite cute slides and it was easy to move around the park. It is another comfort and style look to achieve this season. Rompers are the best bet if you don’t feel like wearing a dress and conscious that when its breezy you might have a Marilyn Monroe effect. With this outfit you can play with the kids specially if you have freesbies and other outdoor games.

Are you planning to go for a picnic this weekend? Make sure to bring the best drinks for everybody to enjoy. Thank you for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.

Top of the morning to all of you from Maryland!! How was your weekend? Mine was busy as usual, we attended a birthday party and a going away party. Speaking of parties… we are just a week away from 4th of July. I know everybody has a lot of things in store on what to do on that day. This is an outfit inspiration with patriotic color scheme for that day which doesn’t scream like it is the 4th of July. I am wearing this easy dress from Karina (my favorite!!) just paired it with these shoes and straw bag. Very summery feel for this outfit combo. Plus, It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon so we took a stroll here the the marina. It was a little breezy too and this dress was really going with the flow with its softness. The micro polka dots also got me to love this dress so much, brings me some vintage feel.

Anyway, this look is best for cookout parties, family reunions and just hanging out with friends during day time kinda gatherings. This look is perfect for the weather and the holiday that is coming up.

How about you? What are your plans this 4th of July weekend? Are you heading somewhere? As for me, I haven’t booked anything yet but we are definitely heading somewhere and will be long driving. Our favorite thing to do as a family.  Let me know your thoughts from your comments below.

Thank you for stopping by and may you have a blessed week ahead.

TGIF!! What are your plans this weekend? I know I will be busy as I will be working then will be going to my friends birthday party on tomorrow and another going away party for my other friends mom. Now back to my mustard yellow dress which I was talking about on this post hereI wanted a dress version of the mustard yellow as it really is the color I have been eyeing lately and is on trend now. I just paired it with my brown sandals and bag which completed the color more. As you have noticed earthy colors are in just as what I wore on Monday from this post here.

I just wanted something different and a little break from the blue and the pinks that I have been wearing the most. What are you thoughts about the earth colors this summer? Are you embracing it too like I do? What are your favorite colors this summer?

Thank you for stopping by and have a nice weekend.

This can be worn to a simple casual backyard parties too. I paired it with the straw bag and the comfy sandals you last seen me worn in Greece.

How is everybody doing on this hump day? I finally was able to upload these photos from the look I had when I attended my friend’s daughter’s 18th birthday. It was a special event for us Filipinos (just like sweet 16). I was also one of the performers in this birthday together with my husband as the lead guitarist of our band. I chose to wear this dress as I have love the mesh design and the details which is perfect for the event. The birthday theme was also a fairy tale land so wearing this was really appropriate.

I paired it with the block heeled sandals which was perfect because I lasted long without changing into flat shoes. You all know what I mean…. I was thinking of pairing it with a red shoe but I just want to add contrast to the red detail of the dress so I did not pursue. This dress is another fab find under $100 which I talked about on my previous post here.

I hope I was able to give some inspiration to you if you are thinking of what to wear in an event like a special birthday celebration.  Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by. Sorry for the late post, I usually post early in the morning but the past few nights I was giving all my time with the family on movie nights, sixflags and a lot of outdoor stuff.

Happy Monday! I can’t believe it is the Monday grind again. How did you spend your weekend? I had a very busy one. If you follow me on instagram and watched my instastories you knew we went to two events. I had to sing in the band for both, the day event was a teacher’s reunion party so it was a casual one and the night event was 18th birthday of my friends daughter (just like sweet 16 here in the US).

That being said, I will talk about Dresses for special occasion and if you have a lot lined up for this season. I have come up with dresses under $100 to stretch the everyday girls budget. Be it summer wedding, cocktail party, hangout with friends party…

These dresses should be able to give you some inspiration to get excited to attend those special occasions. It can be paired with metallic accessories like gold, another trend to add on your summer trend alert list. It will be a perfect combination for most of the fabulous dresses on this list.

Have a beautiful week ahead! Thank you for stopping by.

O BAG SUMMER BAG

We are literally few weeks away until summer. When I think of it, it gives me a vision of chambray. We all see chambray everywhere and so I tried to find another variation of it. And this chicwish top has the floral embroidery that made it distinctively simply and chic to add a twist to the regular chambray style. I want to create a simple look so I just wore it with the white jeans and and slide sandals to make a chic and comfy look for the weekend. I wore this last weekend by the way if you were checking out my instastories.

I also would like to introduce the O bag!! I am so glad to have known this brand. I bough this in Italy and it is not that expensive I must say. It is perfect for summer and the best part is it is that you can customize it!!! You can add what ever lining, handles you like. There are different shapes of the bag too. I found out they have a few stores here in the US. So if in case I got bored with the 2 styles of handles I bought. I can order some more and get more colors.

I hope I was able to give you some inspiration and new items for you to check out.

Happy hump day and Thank you for stopping and hope to see you again on my next post.

Simply,
