What day is it, ladies and gentlemen? Yup, that's right! It's Wednesday and what do we do on Wednesdays? We wear pink! This time it's this neon pink romper from Blink Boutique! I think my favorite thing about this romper, other than its vibrant color is that crochet details. It's hard not to even be enticed by it. It's also not too short.

Going minimal with jewelries (meaning, I didn't have earrings and bracelets) is a bit new to me but with all the polka dots happening, I figured, I'll let them steal the show. This polka dot turban headband from Miss Giggle Buns is adorable and although it's very summery, she has other prints and styles that will be just great for fall. The statement necklace is enough to make a statement too because it's just beautiful. Unfortunately, it's sold out. But do contact her to see if she will have it re-stocked soon.

And guess what? The navy and white polka dots wedges I was wearing here are still available and on sale too for $19.99. Gotta love summer-end sales, right? Click on the direct link at the Outfit Recap section above.

Floral Maxi Dress

1. Nicollette Dress via Nouveau Fabrics | 2. Madeleine Heels | 3. AMI Clubwear Handbag  | 4. Kendra Scott Earrings | 5. Christy Alexa Pearl Necklace | 6. Tanus Designs Bracelet (All c/o)

I thought I had already found the perfect maxi dress for me until I received this floral off-the-shoulder one from Nouveau Fabrics. They aren't necessarily a retailer but a fabric supplier. They supply fabrics to brands like Nicollette, Wet Seal, Charlotte Russe, and Forever21. It is pretty sad that I won't be enjoying this dress for long but it sure will stay in my closet for the next few spring and summers to come. The material is very lightweight (it is chiffon) and thin but it has lining. I think it is awesome to know where those famous name brands get their fabric supply, isn't it? I'm sure that they would have not dealt business with Noveau Fabrics if they aren't reputable. If you like DIY or have your own clothing company, perhaps they are a good resource to check out.

As elegant as this dress is, I just gotta pair it with another pearl necklace. Now this time, these pearls are just faux pearls but they still look great with this dress and any dress. I got them from Christy Alexa Boutique. I don't think it's still available though.

Hope you like today's outfit as much as I do! xo

Simple White Dress Outfit

1. CLUNY Dress | 2. Galian Boston Handbag (Also available in black, blue, tan, and taupe) | 3. JustFab Pumps | 4. Lolly Ella Gem Drop Earrings | 5. Pearl Lang Pearl Exotic Baroque Freshwater Pearl Necklace | 6. Pearl Lang Baroque Freshwater Pearl Bracelet  (All c/o)

I realized I really haven't worn any whites all spring and summer long so I'm going to redeem myself! Thankfully, there came an opportunity to style this white dress from CLUNY. I have also come to realize that there are absolutely two things a woman must have in her closet: A simple white dress and some pearls!

This CLUNY structured white dress has some details in front which you can hardly see from the photos. It looks pretty basic and simple but that's the beauty of it – you can pretty much wear it for both work and play. Think blazer and pump for work while a denim vest or jean jacket and wedges for play.  You can even wear it to a wedding occasion. I was thinking of church when I put this together. I wanted to look like a fine, elegant woman. I mean why not?

I decided to accessorize with pops of radiant orchid and lavander. This Fall 2014 handbag from Galian in radiant orchid, which is the pantone color of 2014 in case you forgot, is the most gorgeous radiant orchid handbag you will ever have. It is classy and it's not over the top.

And nothing is more elegant than a set of real exotic baroque freshwater pearls from Pearl Lang. I tell you, they carry the most beautiful freshwater, Tahitian, akoya, and south sea water pearls. Now I'm not at all familiar with each of this type of pearls but the one I'm wearing in this outfit are freshwaters. It has gorgeous natural lavander color and it has high luster. When buying real pearls, you have to make sure you're buying from a trusted resource, especially online. I highly recommend Pearl Lang. Of course, I must admit that they are my sponsors but I wouldn't have dealt with them in the first place if I know they can't be trusted. If you're already shopping for Chrismas gifts, hit them up. You will also love their packaging. It's very classy.

summary

Red is such a sexy, lovely, and alluring color isn't it? Put that in a haltered skater dress and it's even sexier!  This red dress from Khromato, though a skater skirt, is very flattering. It could be the sheer halter cut or the full circle bottom that makes it flattering or even both. Whatever it is, it will just make you feel sexier than you already are. It comes with a ribbon belt with a rhinestone buckle but I honestly don't feel the buckle so I removed it.

Going red on red isn't such a bad thing either. Normally, for most women, they'd go nude, black, or gold in shoes but a moderate matchy-matchy is totally acceptable in fashion. Of course, it only makes perfect sense not to go all the way red when it comes to jewelries too or you might look like you're going to a Halloween costume party. Right?

If a special occasion is anywhere near in your calendar of events, think of this sexy red dress from Khromato. You can always change the belt to a gold skinny belt if you'd like.

This girl has been living in slip dresses lately. I think I'm lovin' it more than maxis and skater dresses. That's not to say that I won't be wearing any of those anymore though.

I'm savoring the last few days of Summer and Summer fashion. I know that sooner than later, I'm gonna have to layer up. I'm hoping that summer days will be longer, in Houston at least, but we shall see.

This floral slip dress is from Deb Shops and I didn't realize till I got it that it's the white version of the black floral slip dress I wore in my Travel Style series. You can find it here. I also wore the same coral bandeau. Ha! Oh well, it's so comfy and feminine that's why I liked it. Come fall, you can still wear it. Just wear a leather jacket and a pair of booties. Accessorize with scarf and a boho bag. Voila! You got fall style with a summer dress.

When wearing a slip dress, I tend to lean more on using boho-style accessories or long necklaces versus the loud statement ones. Thus, I used my new leaf earrings and necklace from Statement Junkie. They are yet another online jewelry boutique that I suggest checking out. If you like boho jewelries though, I personally recommend the necklace I'm wearing here. Check it out! xo

I guess this is the third part of my unexpected "On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink" series which I am hoping will not go on forever, haha. I started it in the month of August with my pink tulle skirt and if you missed that post, you can check it out here. I think I will have one more for next week and I promise (okay maybe not!) I won't post a pink outfit on wednesdays anymore…just some other day. *Wink*

So colorblocking isn't really a huge trend this season compared to a couple of years ago. But come to think of it, if you're wearing a solid color pair of denim (say black) or even dark washed jeans and you wear a plain solid color shirt…isn't it color-blocking too? We don't think of it that way but in reality, if that's your staple in your closet, you do color blocking whether it's in season or not or whether you'd like to put it that way or not. Corporate outfit is mostly color blocking as well.

This skirt with laser cut hem is hot!  Violet Fringe Boutique still has some in stock and it's currently on sale for $20! This skirt is too adorable. The top is as equally adorable. It actually has crochet hem details and it's perfect for tucked-out casual look with jeans or shorts but for this stylin', I just had to tuck it in. Hope you like this post!

Yay for matchy-matchy outfits! Gotta love it when you have matchy-matchy items in your closet. They come in handy! One of the most adorable color combinations that I like is aqua or mint and cobalt blue so when I saw this dress from Piace Boutique, I just had to have it. Unfortunately though, I believe it's already sold out, but as always, I suggest checking their website out to see if there's something that you might like.

Pretty much all of my accessories here have been featured in the past (except the necklace) but most of them are still available. The mint wedges from Deb Shops are currently on sale for $10! You can't beat that! I've worn those babies quite a few times here on the blog cuz they're one of my favorite wedges to date. Grab 'em while they still have it in stock.

Even though it's still brutally hot here in Houston, I feel that summer is coming to an end very soon (well it is) because it gets dark earlier in the evenings now. Not yet by much but when you use natural light to do a photo shoot, you notice these things. Besides, you also see brick and mortar fashion retailers and online boutiques with some fall items already. Sigh. I must admit (and I have several times) that I don't like fall and winter. I'm just not a cool weather baby. Haha.

Today's look is very casual. I put it together with the intention of slowly transitioning to fall. Although I promise you I still have a lot of cute items to show you and the best part about it is that most of these summer items will be in crazy sale prices.

Obviously, fall colors are darker and a bit more in the dull side which is why I'm also not fond of fall fashion. But the best way to start incorporating fall in your wardrobe while it's still summer is by using scarves, light-layering, and mixing and matching light and dark colors that already exist in your closet.

All of my jewelries in this outfit were from this box subscription company called Wantable. Has any of you ladies tried them? You have the option to choose a beauty intimates or a fashion/jewelries/accessories box. I chose the latter. I got to try out the June box I believe which came with the scarf, the long necklace, the earrings, and the bangle. Basically, you create a style profile and they will pick 4-5 items to send you every month for $36. Box subscription service like Wantable is a great way to discover new products for a more affordable price. I suggest you check them out! 

P.S. Did you notice my eyes were a little sharp in the photos? I'm wearing purple-colored contacts from Spooky Eyes. I hope you didn't get spooked out! xo

Little No More

A special Saturday post…it's been awhile since my 3.5 year old niece made an appearance here on the blog so I thought it's about time. This little girl is little no more. Although she's still everyone's baby in our very small family, Nehrielle is growing up so fast. It's amazing how time flies. She knows a lot of antics now and knows how to say a lot of stuff that will amaze us. She will also be going to school twice a week now. Nehrielle is growing up to be a smart girl. There were some vocabularies that come out of this little girl that is out of this world for a 3.5 years old. How she correlates some  words to a particular situation is pretty neat too.

She's also learning how to work the camera like a pro! Of course, my mom (a.k.a my photographer) still had to run after her…just because she likes my mom to go after her to take her photso. Thankfully, at some point, she stopped and posed for us and those were the photos below. She's wearing her favorite brand, FabKids. We love FabKids outfits for her because they come with a dress and leggings or top, skirt, and leggings and every month there's a new collection that comes out. If you have kids or nieces and nephews, check them out. I think you'll like them!
