Hello Summer!

boho-style

Wow it’s finally here!  I am joining the whole Northern Hemisphere in welcoming Summer with open arms.  The look I have on today will practically be a precursor to my off-duty style all season long as this Summer is predicted to be a ruthless 3-digit one for all of the Western United States.

By the way, I can’t wait to start another awesome collaboration next week with a very promising fitness wear brand AIRABELLA ACTIVE.  That means yours truly will be stripping down to her tank top and yoga pants and will be the bearer of a promo code or possible even a giveaway for their high-quality but easy-on-the-pocket active wear.  So check out my FACEBOOK, TWITTER or INSTAGRAM this week for more details. ♥

Cubicle to Cocktails

transitional-style-ideas

Even before I started blogging four years ago, I have continually challenged myself into injecting a dash of sass and color into my corporate wardrobe – having spent almost half of my lifetime in it.

In a sea of stuffy black, gray and navy –  dainty patterns like ruffles will indeed bridge the gap from cubicle to cocktails with just the right amount of details like a tailored blazer, a bright-colored bag, a pair of color-blocked heels and those pants which I scored at my friendly neighborhood Kohl’s.

Summer Segue

transitional-style-ideas

Hello everyone!  Lest I be called the queen of maxis for my three consecutive maxi-wearing posts, I am just too happy to settle down again in my favorite shorts as a perfect segue to our much-awaited Summer.  Transitioning to another season is always a style challenge for me, so I always turn to a black graphic tee with colored shorts for a little fun night on the town.

Seriously, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for your awesome response to my 3-post collaboration (here, here and here) with Los Angeles-based clothing brand TOBI.  You all have fallen in love with the dresses I wore, I can assure you will fall in love more with the quality that TOBI has to offer.  Plus new customers always get 50% off their first purchase!

Shop Tobi :: Cage the Beast Dress

tobi-cage-the-beast-dress

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  Finally we make it to Summer’s unofficial first day a.k.a. America’s 1st huge shopping weekend for the year.  The suburban outlet I checked out yesterday was packed to the rafters, the sales were tremendous and the desert weather was absolutely gorgeous – makes for one truly memorable weekend!

This statement black dress (interestingly named “Cage the Beast“) completes the trifecta (see the two others here and here) of my latest collaboration with Los Angeles-based brand TOBI.  In as much as words are definitely not enough to describe how this gorgeous dress fit me like a glove beyond measure – I will just let these pictures do the talking.

You are totally missing a lot if you still haven’t checked out TOBI‘s huge online collection of the most to-die-for shoes,  sandals,  tops,  sunglasses,  blazers,  swimsuits,  formal dresses,  black/blue dresses,  maxi skirts,  wrap dresses - the list is endless!  Plus new customers get 50% off their first purchase. ♥

Paisley Panache

tobi-maxi-dress

Versatility (or the desire thereof) will always be the key to my personal style.  That means, after wearing the figure-hugging MELANIA last week (here), it’s time to don the floaty ABRIANNA – another statement piece from Los Angeles-based brand TOBI.

Everything about this dress is surely a winner in my style book – from my favorite paisley prints, to the floaty chiffon material, to the drop waist, to the sleeveless-style which enhances my deltoids, to the deep-V criss-cross back, and last but not the least, those two front slits which ultimately sealed in the sexy factor to this dreamy maxi. ♥

So waste no time checking out TOBI‘s huge online collection of the most to-die-for shoes,  sandals,  tops,  sunglasses,  blazers,  swimsuits,  formal dresses,  black/blue dresses,  maxi skirts,  wrap dresses - the list is endless!  Plus new customers get 50% off their first purchase.
