Are there colors that you just don't seem to like how they look on you? Well for me, that color is yellow. For some reason, I feel that most shades of yellow make me look either pale or sick (or both!). But I have come to discover that in those cases there are probably at least one or two shades of that color that could actually look quite nice on you. So I decided to give yellow a chance and bought a couple of yellow pieces. And who would have known that one of my favorite pieces (a mustard top I used a couple of days ago) turned out to be yellow? Goes to show, some things deserve a second chance ;)

Today has had 4 "lime" things... First I decided to wear these beautiful lime green shoes (one of my favs for some reason) to contrast the purple summer dress. Then I added the lime green purse which is the second lime of the day. Third I decided to wear lime green makeup for the first time (and I love how it looks, gotta try this more often!). Last and definitely not least, I baked a delicious lemon cake (ok, its not lime but close enough!) which turned out so soft and fluffy! In fact, I'm eating a slice right now ;)

My Choice of outfit of the week - I miss my straw hat!

May 29 - Omayra
This week's outfit of the week goes to Omayra! I absolutely love this simple yet cute nautical look! What I love the most about it is the cute straw hat. I have a similar hat in Panama and I really wish I had it here for this summer (boo hoo). Anyway, back to the outfit. I love the stripes and white pants (or a white skirt in my case ;) makes everything look fresh and ready for summer. Good job Omayra!

Where: Out to lunch with some friends

Comments:
Today I wanted to create a look that was very natural but pulled together. I love how orange and light blue look so unexpectedly fresh together. To go along with the effortless look, I did the most natural and subtle make-up I could. Its the type of make-up that is supposed to look like you have nothing on but somehow look beautiful. I really like how a simple and natural look can be so fresh and pretty!

I really like how simple yet chic this look is!! I especially like that out of nowhere I got the idea of wearing the blazer's collar up... doesn't it look awesome? I love how it highlights the floral pin on the collar. I felt pretty ingenious with this new invention!! I was also very happy in this outfit because I got to wear the cool rainbow belt my parents got my for my b-day. I love how its like an added surprise to the back of my outfit.
