Flowers on vacation

Roberto Cavalli top, GUESS? shorts and shoes

I am back from my vacation in Cabo, it was my first time there and I just loved it! Perfect weather, turquoise ocean water and lots of pina colada's – AMAZING! It was also a great place to finally show off some hot summer trends that are still not very wearable at home and florals were perfect for the occasion!

My whole resort wardrobe was blooming - exotic orchids and stunning lillies blossomed on everything from pants and dresses to tops and even my swimsuit. Colorful and fun, these versatile flowery prints work awesome when space and choices are limited (considering I couldn't pack my whole closet :-). For a charming casual look pair them with denim and a flat sandal. For the evening, pick floral prints on luxurious silky fabrics in classy and elegant silhouettes and add some gold jewelry and a pair of metallic strappy sandals to elevate the look even more. A denim jacket or bright blazer will keep you warm on chilly nights and look chic and stylish at the same time.

Another weekend is almost here! I started it early this week – on Wednesday Carey and I went to Cabo, Mexico and are now enjoying sun, the turquoise ocean and delicious margaritas. But even here I can’t help but to browse through my favorite web-sites in search of a great deal, it’s like in that Aerosmith song “I don’t want to miss a thing”. Check out what I found and I hope you’ll have an awesome weekend full of fun and amazing shopping!

Studded - edgy chic.

BCBG Max Azria studded clutch, MANGO cat-eye sunglasses

Studs and spikes have already been a huge trend for a few seasons. Versace classic, rejuvenated by Burberry Prorsum (do you remember those heavily embellished jackets featured in the Britney Spears “Till the World Ends” video and worn by so many celebrities?) and Christian Louboutin, this trend has gradually been picked up by more and more brands and today studded goods are both widely available and affordable.

MANGO Studded cocktail dress, $89.99
BCBG Max Azria West open-toe bootie, $350
What I like about this trend is that you can go as far as you want with it. Go for an all-over studded dress or boots if you feel like a rock diva, or add a studded clutch or sandals to a more low-key outfit in order to bring that extra edge to your look. No matter how you do it – in a big over-the-top way or just scratching the surface of the studded trend – you will definitely score a bold and stylish look.

BCBG Max Azria Varushka studded raffia sandal, $325

GUESS? by Marciano Carli stud belt, $48
BCBG Max Azria Amare studded T-strap sandal, $165

Very flexible and quite universal, studs will work regardless of your age and style.  Tailor their use according to the occasion and reveal your fearless fashionista spirit.

Melted metal

7 For All Mankind Crop Skinny Metallic Coated in Silver, $198,
GUESS? top, cardigan, shoes

Every season metallics take their sweet spot in the hottest trends lineup; this is a fact and will always be like that. However, this year has brought an interesting twist to the execution and approach in wearing this not-so-new trend.

BCBG Max Azria Harlow metallic envelope clutch, $68

GUESS? Carey pleated knit skirt, $79

GUESS? Sandra short-sleeve foil knit romper, $79

Liquid metallic is the way to go; think dresses, skirts and blouses made of drapey, shiny fabrics. Glistening silk or more high-tech innovative materials with coating or straight forward with metal will be the fabrics to pull off your melted metal look. Pick shoes or handbags with a high-gloss finish that visually create an illusion of flowing fluid.

GUESS? Mipolia pumps, $90

MANGO Snake print dress, $39.99

And don’t save all that glam for a special occasion, in moderation liquid metallics are very 9-to-5 friendly. Glimmer up your simple ensemble with a pair of metallic sandals or a sleek clutch, or go full-on day glamour with a shiny blouse or skirt. Style them with matte finish pieces or different textures (cotton, cashmere, wool); classic prints will also do the trick and tone down the flashiness of the metallic.

I can’t believe the weekend is almost here! These last few weeks have been super busy and at some points very stressful so it will be so nice to get away from the everyday hustle and finally relax and get some rest. For me shopping is fun and most certainly very therapeutic but I am not looking for more problems spending too much money or spending money on something that's not worth it, that’s why sales and promos are definitely the way to go!  Check out the latest DEAL FINDER and get your shopping therapy!

As you know I can’t miss a good deal and this promotion is definitely one that is worth looking into.

Let’s put it this way – my husband who works in the fashion industry is pretty picky and precise with his look and 95% of his shoes (and he has A LOT) are Cole Haan! And the best thing, comfort also comes with their stylish, sleek footwear! Carey says his flat feet feel the best when wearing CH!

Into the wild. Part 2 - Leopard

GUESS? dress, bracelet, earrings,
Christian Louboutin shoes, Forever 21 belt

Leopard is one of the hottest prints the last few seasons but in actuality it never loses its relevance. It's a classic fashion print and will stay that way forever.

7 For All Mankind Shimmer Crop Skinny in New Natural ($189),
Eva Varro top, Banana Republic leopard shoes

GUESS? top, Paige Denim jeans, Bebe faux-leather jacket,
Betsey Johnson shoes

Though leopard shoes or dress won’t be a shocking factor in your look they most certainly will spice it up and add a big chunk of edge and attitude. “Spotty” accessories will breathe life into a very simple ensemble transforming it into a feminine and fashionable look. Bigger, more substantial styles like blouses, pants and even dresses in the "wild cat" pattern require a bit more careful styling; they are the focal point of an outfit and nothing else should compete for attention but should only serve to complement. Pairing them with monochromatic yet strong pieces will take your leopard print to a higher level and together will create a perfectly elegant and sophisticated ensemble.

GUESS? Drew long-sleeve top - Anniversary collection, $79

GUESS? Gold-tone and leopard circle pendant necklace, $35

GUESS? Gold-tone and leopard hinge cuff bracelet, $30

GUESS? Malvana wooden high-heel, $99

GUESS? Tabina slingback high-heel, $110

P.S. I am actually really getting into my new hobby – nail art and of course I had to do a leopard nail design for this post. Check it out! Hope you'll like it!
