To celebrate this fun day, I went with this comfy and stylish look. I felt very boho chic with this maxi dress and fedora hat. Who says you can't be comfy and stylish at the same time?
On that note, please forgive me if my posting is a little inconsistent while I'm here. I'll try my best to post everyday, ok guys? :)

I like all the purple in today's outfit! It's just one of those colors that I always feel great in. I also wanted to add a little pop of color, so I went with this bright yellow purse. I love how purple and yellow look together, don't you?

Ralph Lauren Polo: Present from my boyfriend
Orange skirt: El Titan (Panama)
Navy belt: Madison (Panama)
Navy Tommy Hilfiger purse: TJ Max
Blue wedges: ? (Panama)

Where: Celebrated my boyfriend's 22nd birthday!

Today was a very very special day... it was my boyfriend's birthday!! In terms of the outfit, I was waiting for his birthday to wear this awesome polo he gave me a couple of weeks ago. I really love the details on the polo like the big 2 on the back and the two patches on the front. However, the best part of today's outfit was that my boyfriend LOVED it! jiji

To celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, I planned a couple of surprises and fun games. I made him do a treasure hunt for each of his presents, as if we were little kids. I also baked several of his favorite treats (which he started to devour immediately). We had the most wonderful time just goofing around, making jokes, and acting like silly little kids... sometimes you just have to embrace your inner child right? jaja

Blue peasant top: ? (Panama)
Navy skirt: El Titan (Panama)
Caramel belt: Forever XXI
Beige pumps: From this seller on eBay
Striped purse: ? (Panama)

Where: Worked on a special event for my internship (day 11 out of 12) and ran some errands

Sometimes I really enjoy wearing two different shades of the same color together... so that's exactly what I did today! I really like how the two shades of blue pop against each other but aren't overwhelming. I also really like the nice details of this outfit like the embroidery on the bottom of the skirt and the details on the blue top.

Since I was wearing so much blue today, I spent most of the day singing that techno song "I'm blue da ba de da..."... jaja, does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Do any of you ever wear two shades of the same color together?
