Classic Girl!

Hello Friends,

I’m back :) as you can all see my posts lately have been very spread out :( no I haven’t quit blogging. I just have such an insane schedule right now, so it’s hard to get on here as much as I want. It’s definitely not the most ideal work schedule but it’s such a small sacrifice to help me get to where I want to be. Now that my time is so limited I really value days off more than I used to and most importantly of all dressing up!

Lately comfort and ease has been a key staple in my looks, I’ve been wearing a lot of dresses, sneakers, and anything that’s lose. Since it’s been a really rainy summer I feel like it’s the only way to go, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Do you have a summer style? Leave a comment below

Love, Chicki

Making Magic Happen: Washington D.C. Getaway

Hello Friends,

What a great couple of weeks I’ve been having I was granted some much-needed vacation time. So the hubby and I decided it would be really cool to visit Washington D.C, since we both have never been there. I’ve always wanted to visit our Nations capital to see the monuments. Wow what an awesome decision that was we went to the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Lincoln Monument, Reflection Pond and did so much more. Our weekend was filled with laughs and yummy food, and best of all we ended it in the beautiful George Town. Where we munched on cup cakes and took in the scenery. D.C you are a sight to see and you have officially stolen our hearts!

Love, chicki

Fourth of July: Island Style!

Hello Friends,

A couple of weeks ago my hubby and I jumped on a plane, and took off for a weekend getaway to Puerto Rico. It was the Fourth of July weekend and we had an amazing time. We spent the majority of the time at the beach and eating way more than we should :)  Below is my outfit of the day in tribute to independence day island style!

Love, chicki

FreshPair: Finding your right fit!

Hello Friends,

Today I want to talk to you ladies about the B- Word! I’m talking about bras of course. We are constantly making sure we have the right colors, support, and most important the right fit. Bras are such a fundamental piece of our wardrobe, yes, they are hidden in our shirts but, did you know that 27% of women say they have decided against buying a clothing item because they didn’t have the right bra to wear under it?

Confession, I have fallen into this category, being a small busted girl has its disadvantages more than advantages, in my case, I remember being so stressed out when I started buying bras on my own. Nothing ever felt right and I would just tear up and ask “why so small?” Over the years finding that perfect push-up has always been challenging. That is the number one criteria for me when I’m looking for a bra. What girl doesn’t want a little more cleavage than they where blessed with :) ? So, after many years of just going through all the wrong bras, I finally went into a bra store and decided to get measured. What a shock I received I was buying the wrong cup for so many years! A lot of you are wondering how could that be? How didn’t you know? plain and simple answer is I was very uneducated about bras. Yes, you think just because you’re a women you can put on any old thing to cover the girls and go, But that’s simply not true we are all different shapes and sizes out there (and constantly growing). Getting measured was the best decision I have ever made now knowing my actual size, bra shopping doesn’t tend to be so stressful.

I teamed up with an amazing company by the name of Freshpair they started in 2000 as an on-campus underwear delivery service at the University of Maryland and shortly moved to an ecommerce retailer, headquartered in New York. Since their jump into ecommerce, they’re  proud to be the largest online retailer of men’s underwear and a leading online retailer of women’s intimates.

They have an amazing selection of great bras (CLICK HERE)  with ultimate support and coverage for every girls need, I love the diversity on their site. Not only do they offer great bras in every size and color, they also provide a perfect guide to get you in your right bra size, as you can see by clicking here.  So are you ready to finally have the perfect bra? look no further.

I would also like to say a big Thank You to freshpair for giving me the opportunity to write this post. For more information on this company check them out http://www.freshpair.com/

How many of you are still trying to find the right bra?

Retro Vibes!

Hello Friends,

I’ve been kinda wearing the same three colors for the past couple of days. I’ve been going for the classic combo of Red, Black and White. The inspiration for my look was just simply retro. I’ve had a pair of high waist jeans for a long time now, nothing better than to pair it with a stripe top, red lip, and cat eye sunnies.  Out the door I went and conquered my day in style of course.

Do you ever channel a certain look for the day? Leave a comment below

Love, chicki

Hello Summer!

Hello Friends,

Summer is officially here!! and wow, it is really sizzling here in the O-town. So the only thing I want to do is hide in the A/C, well, that’s not an option because life must go on :). On Sunday the hubby and I finally had some free time for ourselves for a couple of hours. We decided to hit up the town, and what better way to do it in this blistering heat than with a comfy casual outfit?  I have been gravitating towards dresses lately, there is something about the easiness of them that really attracts me.  I can’t wait to slowly start adding more into my closet and sharing my looks with you. Summer’s never felt so easy. Do you have a Summer go-to style? Leave a comment below

Love, chicki

Summer’s Must-Have Accessories!

Hello Friends,

Welcome June! I can’t believe we are already 6 months into this year. Wow this year has flown, with that being said we are two weeks away from Summer. Everyone knows what that means beach days, hot weather, and most importantly cute style.

Today I want to talk about Summers hottest accessories! ladies lets face it it’s easy to put that outfit together so why not make it better :)

Shoes: There are three shoe styles that you need to buy this summer: espadrilles, gladiator sandals and mules.

The classic espadrille has a canvas top and a jute rope sole. They’re perfect for both a trip to the beach and paired with a summer dress for a night out.

Gladiator sandals were all over the runway, from Valentino to Chloe. If you’re intimidated by this trend, you can always choose a sandal that doesn’t go as high up the leg, or wear a pair with a midi skirt for a more subtle look.

Mules were another runway standout, showing up at Proenza Schouler, Calvin Klein Collection and Tory Burch. They’re easy to slide on, but just as chic in a platform or chunky heel as a stiletto, so you can wear them from the office to after work drinks.

Bags: Summer is all about the mini bag, from the minaudiere to the cross-body to the bucket. Mini bags are great because they help you simplify your life and it’s less to carry around when you’re on the go all summer.

A minaudiere is basically like jewelry in handbag form.  gold clasp. It’s the perfect accessory for a summer wedding. Before you buy one, make sure that it fits your phone, lipgloss and whatever else you might need for a night out.

 Crossbody comes in tons of bright, and poppy hues.

Bucket bags could seem too casual for evening, but there are some out there with gold straps to fancy up that outfit. The best thing about these bags is that they fit everything you need.

Sunglasses: Retro is a big trend this summer, from cat eyes to mod.

Mirrored Glasses: Celebrities love the mirrored sunglasses trend.

Hats: Straw hats are a must for summer. They look super chic and best of all, they help protect your skin from the sun. You can either choose a floppy version or a more structured fedora version to stay cool.

 

With that being said ladies I hope to see you all rocking these hot accessories. Will you be wearing all of these? leave a comment below

Love,

chicki
