I'm so happy to be wearing this blazer for the first time! I think it looks so chic and smart at the same time. Since the border of the blazer is purple, I thought it would look good with this purple plaid skirt. I love the overall preppy feel of this outfit!

Today's outfit was actually inspired by Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. I love all of her preppy outfits and how fashion forward she always looks.
Inspired by: Blair Waldorf

Do you ever feel inspired from a TV Series? Which one?

Today I realized that I have a bunch of projects that I haven't worked on in ages! I have some jersey necklaces I want to make like this one, as well as a zipper necklace, a paint by number, and a photo album. That is just to mention a couple of the projects I have been wanting to work on. It's time for me to get to it!

In terms of my outfit, I really love the warm color palette I came up with! I always feel that white and beige look very classy and sophisticated when paired together. I especially love the details on this beige cardi (mostly the sleeves and the buttons). I was also very happy to be wearing this cute floral skirt for the first time! I can't wait to pair it with bold red tights when the weather gets cooler :)

What projects are you working on?

For today's Professional Tuesday, I decided to wear this striped collar shirt that I have actually never worn before. I paired it with this navy skirt because I love the detail on the bottom border. I also added the pop of red purse to keep things interesting.

And now, put your hands together for the return of the shape collaaaggee!!! Yaaiii!! :

Today was a very rainy day so I got to wear my cute and happy rain boots! I wanted the boots to be the center of attention, so I paired it with this crisp white dress. I added some color with the bright cardi and colorful scarf.

I finished off the cutesy look by braiding my hair (which was also perfect because the humid weather made my hair crazy!... hehe). I'm so happy to wear my happy rain boots again :)

Do you own rain boots? Are they colorful? cute? simple?
