Work + Had a wonderful girls-night with my sister eating sushi and watching tv.

A couple of weeks ago, I came accross THE coolest french costume jewelry designer called N2. I loooooooooooooooooooooove every single piece of costume jewelry they have made! They specialize in making unique looking accessories inspired in fairytales and cute characters. Out of all their fabulous lines, I love the Hansel & Gretel inspired one the most. I mean, isn't this necklace the cutest thing you have every seen?!?!?!

As soon as I saw their Hansel & Gretel collection (the collection is actually called Un petite coin perdu), I knew I had to have it!! So I scouted the internet for HOURS until I found exactly what I wanted at a decent price. I am sooooo happy with this necklace and earrings! They are just sooo darling! They made me smile all day long ;)

Drove to a nearby beach with my boyfriend and his family to enjoy the sound of the waves, the soft wind, and a very nice lunch.

Can I just say that I love this red beach hat? I mean, it completely makes today's outfit, don't you think?

Just because Panama is a tropical country doesn't mean that we all wear shorts, board shorts, flip-flops, and beach hats everyday (not that there is anything wrong with that!).

But what I am trying to say is that people don't just wear beach hats around the city. So I was very pleased when my boyfriend and his family invited me to go have lunch at a nearby beach because it was the perfect opportunity to wear this red beach hat for the first time!

Nautical | Everybody, Everywear

My Choice of Outfit of the week - Classy chic

Outfit of the week - Lorena's everyday wear
This week's outfit of the week goes to Lorena from Lorena's Every Day Wear! I love how classy and sophisticated Lorena looks in this outfit. The collar shirt layered under the black top makes the entire outfit more sophisticated and chic. Plus, you all know that I am a fool for pops of color, and Lorena did a great job adding color with those shoes! Good job Lorena!

Today's outfit has so many different things going on, yet I feel its very subtle and classy. I have a lace dress, with a statement faux pearl necklace, leopard shoe covers, and even bright red lipstick!! Yet, I feel that all of these elements go so well together.

I felt great in today's outfit! So I guess it proves that wearing lots of different elements can really work well together if you get it right :)

Work + Just relaxed at home watching TV.

I have an on and off love for the statement necklace I am wearing today. Sometimes I absolutely love how colorful and different it looks. And other days, I sorda feel like its not my style and that I look like an art project... Today was one of those days were I wasn't so convinced.

Still, I decided to make an outfit around this necklace today because I haven't worn it in such a long time. I felt pretty pleased with the results, so I'm glad I persevered!

This skirt is one of the best skirts I have in terms of flowynes... what is flowyness you ask? It's being able to twirl round and round with the skirt doing beautiful wavy movements... haha, is it strange to love that?... I guess I'm strange then ;)
