SEMI CASUAL: KIND OF SUMMER OUTFIT

DENIM TOP CAN BE FOR SUMMER TOO!

Hi Loves,

It feels like I am enjoying the summer sunshine in Florida here in the Philippines. The only difference is very hot and humid here compared to South Florida. Of course, we are enjoying swimming in the ocean, sea breeze, sandy feet, salty atmosphere.

@GINATILAN, CEBU PHILIPPINES

This classic denim shirt can be worn for any season. It is under $30. It’s super hot in the Philippines and sunblock isn’t enough to protect your skin from sun damage. When I was packing for this trip, I knew I had to have this top with me. Super love the material and how convenient it is to wear anywhere. I paired it with the front zip pockets mini skirt to elevate the look and a pop of heels. I linked down below other options to choose from since this look is out of stock except the shirt and the sunnies.

Summery Outfit: OTS Palm Leaf Print + Bell Sleeves

Hello Loves,

I have been missing in action for a little while due to traveling internationally with my kids back in the Philippines. It is difficult to get internet connection in my province of Cebu. Fortunately, I get the chance to post.

Let’s talk about this top! Do you know about Shein.com? They have awesome clothing that is so affordable and trendy. This off-the-shoulder palm leaf print top is only $15. Can you believe that? It is flattering though a bit crop top but trust me you will love it. It is super perfect for Summer and even date nights or lunch dates with friends. I have been receiving a lot of compliments about it.

In the warmer temps, there is nothing better than keeping cool, casual, comfy in a fab pair of shorts. I literally live in shorts and flats this seasons. There are varieties of different styles, prints, colors, and the fabric that makes your short outfits more casual yet chic and flirty. These shorts are currently on sale for under $15 and can be dress up or down depending on what occasion and where you are going. They comes in 7 different summer colors. I have them in blue as well. They are absolutely staples in my summer wardrobe! I recommend go up one size for more comfier fit. They run a bit smaller.

I paired with this top . It has jewel neck and I needed some accessories to add a nice compliment to the neckline. I paired with this long tassel necklace (not linkable). I linked down below other tassel necklace that I have eyeing for a long time.

For the shoes or sandal, I decided to wear this flipflop for a casual look. It is easy slip on and off and yes it is perfect for the beach also.

I ended up accessorizing it with this bag and belt. To elevate the look, I added up with this sunglasses to a casual chic look. This becomes my favorite outfit of all time. (insert dancing emojis here)

Happy Saturday Ladies,

This wrap dress caught my attention instantly. The stripes, color, ruffled hem, and the flute sleeves is just super flattering. I needed to have this dress right away. It fits me perfectly!

MIXED STRIPES

Hello Ladies,

HAPPY THURSDAY!

Vertical, horizontal you can’t go wrong with a classic, striped piece in your wardrobe.
This season I am loving stripes. It’s such a great piece to throw on the go. I bought this mixed stripes in New York last year from Vintage Havana. They have the best choices of simple and sophistication pieces perfect for Spring and Summer. I paired it with this denim from Paige. It is super skinny and a dusty faded wash. This is my all time favorites.

This slingback strap and stacked heel is sure to become my go-to Summer shoe. It is super comfy and the heel is for running around.

To finish off this look, I added on this Chanel mini bag and this sunnies from Salvatore Ferragamo. I love the gold silver hardware and I find myself wearing them all the time. Thee match perfectly with my accessories. Even though I love colors, it is always fun to try other colors too and how you style them.

Linked several vertical stripes below that I would love..

This classic elegance pumps make the look more polish. It’s a suede upper and 3″ covered heel which is easy to walk around.
