Candy Cane

IMG_6643

It’s almost summer and I decided to show off my favorite trends of the year in a very quick shoot. Long sleeves, bow ties, and stripes.. I felt so fresh with this pairing, I went with a subtle white knee length skirt for my candy cane shirt.

It is such a spring/summer outfit yet I have to be one to admit it does remind of Christmas and you must have figured out by now how much I love Christmas!

I always want my outfits to represent the playful side of me, I always say it’s an art and representation of what a person is. And with outfits, i tend to play around with different styles because I can always show how i feel and yes most of the time they actually uplift my mood. Maybe it’s just as simple as putting on a shirt and letting it do the magic.

So without further ado, i leave you with my candy cane..

Laced up

IMG_6703

Yet another trend that I’ve instantly fallen in love with are waist belts.
This Citlali lace-up top to be specific was something that stood out to me as soon as I saw it! It’s got like a loose lace up corset belt tied around the waist line of the top transforming it from just a plain shirt to a wild and playful item that catches everyone’s attention.

Because red is already a pop of color I paired it with a simple brown trousers and my nude Louboutin’s. Making the outfit look as simple as I could possibly make it by mixing and matching nude palettes around the red.

So here’s a tip from me to you.. When you have an item that stands out and want to revolve the entire concept around it, tone it down with your pairings. For me I tend to lean on the Nude Color Palettes, always so simple and classy!

Vintage

Fresh out of the 80s, feeling that denim on denim look, it’s a flashback.. no wait! It just never gets old!
I love anything and everything vintage. It’s not just a word to me, vintage is a style, an artistic vision, a creative mind, and a look that’s always on my checklist!

I paired my high waist jeans with a cropped yellow sweater and a denim printed jacket.
Remember the good old days when we put on our hoop earrings and walked around feeling fly?! Well, to me those days never went out of date!
As colorful as this might seem to you, walking around in it made me feel so fresh.

Layering

1

I’m one who is fascinated by things that stand out, and who isn’t really?!
At this point we go through our wardrobe and find so many items and pieces that we’ve only worn once or twice and no longer know what to do with them.

Here I decided to show how you could always make use of your wardrobe. The skirt is something I recently purchased on my last shopping spree and am definitely sure that I will be putting it through everything because I’m obsessed with it! Paired it with this bell sleeve blouse (on trend) and for a unique touch added this cropped top that I loved so much. This way my added bonus is the cropped top, wore it before but still found a way to make use of it again without even it looking like the same top anymore. The plus side is it made the top look unique and one of a kind, lets face it the chances of you running into someone in public wearing the same top are very low!

Finally, adding a touch of sass as per the usual and that is.. RED!

Share your thoughts on layering below, I’d love to know how you feel about it.

Till next time..

My Haven

img_4683

Here’s how it began.. The value of happiness can not be estimated, It can not be described, it can only be felt by you!
When in Maldives, staying in such hotel know from experience that there is such a thing as guaranteed happiness.
The island is like a safe haven where you get to experience blessings and beautiful scenes in their finest of forms. You sit there and have your breath taken away almost instantly!

I was barefooted the entire time dressing up in dresses that made me feel like I belonged. Dresses that represented me and my haven. From different local designers that I sincerely love, as inspiring as each could be in their own way. Starting off with Amira Haroon who quickly became a close friend of mine, designing all of her pieces so adequately and in such details you can’t help but fall in love.

As for Lilli Jahilo her delicate touch in designs are sublime.

This entire trip won’t be the only one I hope, and it taught me to appreciate the things I do in life to get to where I am today. It’s always important to believe that hard work pays off.

A piece of heaven on earth

4

I can now say that I’ve finally had the chance to visit and stand in the midst of heaven on earth.
The best experience I’ve had so far and I would do it all over again with a heartbeat.
The way I decided to explain this to you is with explicit details so that you’d be able to feel like you’ve seen, done, and felt the way I’ve experienced this.

Starting off with the hotel, I stayed at the St. Regis Maldives after rave reviews from across the planet! I booked for four nights to get a long overdue break from work, life, and reality. The room, oh my, do they’re like cabins in the midst of the beautiful Maldives seas. They have this cute bike if you enjoy a ride and they offer a cart which is also just a phone call away to pick you up and take you around!

The view from my bed is astonishing I honestly have never seen anything like it before. Walking around from the pool front in the cabin you can choose to just swim with the fish and the beautiful sea creatures. My favorite area for snorkeling and diving! Ahh what a scene! Another favorite of mine was a feature in the room which basically controlled most amenities (curtains, tv, YouTube, music, lights, etc..) on an iPad.. so a literal click of button and voila!

Moving on, the restaurants. From jungle themed Arabian restaurants to Asian. My favorite start was the breakfast at Alba but saying that doesn’t do the rest justice. Every restaurant I tried was truly delicious and I’m not just saying that! I’m very picky with food and there’s nothing I did not enjoy! There are some activities you could do during your stay like yoga to keep your self feeling fresh.
Oh wow, writing this I found myself suddenly getting carried away.

One last thing, I promise.. because I can’t end this without mentioning the best part of it all. THE SPA! Ah heaven heaven heaven! There’s nothing I’ve experienced in my life that felt better than this.

Yes, I can now say that I’ve waken up in heaven!
