SUMMER EASE

Summer is absolutely everything to me!! I am engulf in everything that it has to offer.
 You will rarely hear me complaining about how hot it is outside or wanting to stay in because of the heat index. Yes, I am that girl who prefers to eat outside on the patio in 90 degrees temps rather than sitting inside in a freezing restaurant :))
I also prefer to walk rather than taking a cab, car or the train.Walking allows you to see everything while burning calories!! Which is oh so important to me! Haha... That’s why cities like: Chicago, NYC, DC, SF, Portland and a few others are near and dear to my heart!:) Which brings me to my summer fashions choices. Being at ease during the summer months is imperative for me. I refuse to wear hot and heavy clothing in 90 degree weather. So, I always opt for easy pieces that are cute, simple, sometimes edgy and easy to maneuver in!:))

I purchased this set from F21 while shopping at The Pentagon Mall earlier this summer.
Handbag: Chloe | Sandals: Zara
When visiting DC be sure to stop by Tonic in Foggy Bottom: the tater tots do not 
disappoint!!

A total Paradox!!!
Fun with my girl!:))

I picked this lace Romper up from Urban Outfitters last summer. 
It’s super comfy!

Earlier in day Dacia and I went to Tavern On The Green for Lunch!
The scallops were delishio!!

I met up with my friend Susan to do a little shopping in the West Village.
I was so happy to spend some time with her!! She’s always SUPER CHIC!!!

A yogurt party is always a great idea!:)

TIED UP


 


Can’t believe that summer will be coming to an end for many very soon! 
It seems like just yesterday that we got out of school for summer break! Time flies so fast!!
Here are some photos that I took on my phone during my second trip to DC this summer.
I ordered these floral swing shorts with the sash last summer from Forever 21.
They can be tied many ways. 
I usually shop online unless I am traveling. I think it’s easier don’t you agree?1:)
How cute is the back of my crop top from Urban Outfitters?!
I love how it ties up!:) 
My shades are also Forever 21. I love my high-end sunnies but 
I’m all for mixing low-end with high-end especially on carefree trips like this one.

My striped handbag is Marc Jacobs .

Sandals: You guys have seen them a lot this summer are by Diesel.

One of my favorite foods is Mexican: I like anything with a lot fresh non-starchy veggies and very little carbs! My meat of choice is always seafood or none at all. I will eat chicken or turkey from time to time but I try to keep it to a minimum. Lunch date with my daughter at the #DistrictTaco

BEACH PLEASE

Traveling during the holidays has been on my trajectory for quite sometime. I’m a true free spirit and being in carefree environments with easy going individuals is so important at this age. I told my husband some time ago that I desire to travel during the holidays every single year. Especially, since my daughter is getting older and practically lives in another city.  Remaining present in her life is huge for me. My goal is to continue the traditions that I’ve always had with her and my husband, even though she is miles away. Making a point to travel and create new memories is so dear to me. We took a short drive further down south to the beach for the The 4th of July and we had such a good time. Although my husband couldn’t make this trip because of his many projects; he was there with us in spirit. We did enjoy watching  fireworks the Thursday before the holiday with my husband in Bartlett. Then we saw fireworks the day before the holiday at Destin Commons  and on the actual holiday on Panama City Beach. Needless to say this was the year of the Fireworks for me!!:))) I hope you enjoy seeing a peak into our holiday trip. Tell me what you think by commenting at the end of the post!:))

P.S.
I’m so enjoying my braids, although they add two pounds to my head. I feel the pain especially during my runs and various exercises (insert emoji here):))!!!
