Remix

I'm a sucker for sheer shirts. They can be worn in all seasons. I had been dying to wear my LC Khol's high-waisted shorts again (since our recent encounter). Plus, they are so comfortable! You've seen this shirt here and these shorts originally worn here.


There's nothing wrong with remixing your pieces. No need to shop all the time. Just extend your wardrobe!

Wonderful Weekend

It's so wonderful to see a group of people, come together, from all walks of life, to dedicate their time to spread the word about a disease their family, friends, or someone they don't even know are suffering with. I was overwhelmed with the support and dedication companies, individuals, and on-lookers showed. They supplied great spirit in routing bikers on, who devoted months of training to finally finish the race to advance the knowledge of individuals who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. From Houston to Austin, MS150, a college friend of mine took the challenge to bike three hours to support this cause. I'm so proud of her! Congratulations Courtney!

In addition to this wonderful weekend, I caught word that Lauren Conrad was stopping in Houston for her book tour and release of The Fame Game. So many girls lined up to see her! I've not read any of the previous books but I bought this one just to get a glimpse of her!

Pastel and Neutral

Stepping in Zara lately has been a Dreamland for me. I really wish I could get everything in the store!  These lovely shorts are so comfortable and a great color to brighten up an outfit. The pastel and neutral trend is booming right now and there are many ways of wearing it.

If you follow me on Instagram, (thebrilliantlife) you've seen these shorts but I'm stuck on what top to wear! Didn't want to do the typical white sheer top, so what do you think?

Any ideas?

Irony

Now that I've moved back to the South, I've been suffering severely of seasonal allergies. Sneezing, coughing, nasal congestion is my everyday battle. When I was younger, my allergies were even worse. Constant pills, shots and preventive methods were apart of my daily life. Today I decided to see the doctor and instantly regretted it due to MORE shots, etc. The irony of it is, although I'm allergic to grass, pollen, certain trees --- I LOVE flowers and being outdoors! This is definitely going to be a tough summer.

Florals has to be my favorite trend this season -- hence my love for flowers! These are the times that I miss Boston. Clear air and less pollen!

I've seen bright orange lips on everyone. Celebrities like Solange, and even models on the runway have been rocking it lately. I went on the search to find the shade and I found Morange by MAC which is a scary color straight from the tube. I really had to manipulate this color to fit me by using a flesh tone lip pencil that would blend well with my skin tone.

Would you wear bright orange lipstick?


If not, TRY IT! I dare ya!

Easter Sunday

Dress: Zara | Pumps: Aldo | Necklace: H&M | Chain Bracelet: Express | Watch: Michael Kors | Bag: Gucci

I call this my Mrs. Obama dress! It's actually a very light peach color which isn't picking up very prominent in the pictures. And I absolutely love the fit of it. I'm usually never keen on wearing dresses that come with a belt but it works. 

I had such a wonderful time visiting my in-laws for Easter. I had plenty of food and good laughs. Easter is always a time to reflect on how the Man above has done great things for us. For those who celebrate, I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Casual Neon

Wore this out to look for Spring/Summer shoes which have been a job to find lately. I've seen a million shoes online that I love but I'm indecisive when purchasing. Asos.com, NastyGal.com, ShopBop.com are the online retailers I check regularly. But I've come to realize that it's EXTREMELY difficult for me to buy things online. I'm not sure if it's laziness as far as returning the item if it doesn't fit, which could very well be the case, or If I NEED to be able to touch and feel the item before buying.

Do you shop online often? 


Happy Wednesday!
