For today's flats challenge, I went with the classic and oh-so-versatile black flats. I've used these babies sooooo many times, they are definitely a closet staple for me.

My sister is currently apartment shopping, and today we saw the cutest apartment ever! It is owned by a very stylish lady that decorated her entire home very Parisian chic. I absolutely love French inspired decor, and this lady's apartment was definitely a dream come true! (I mean, just look at those Louis Vitton suitcases, need I say more!)

The funny thing is that today's outfit is very Parisian chic, so I fit right in with the cute French apartment... hehe.

Did you all enjoy last week's challenge of wearing flats everyday of the week? Well, I sure hope you did because I'm going to have to wear flats this entire week as well! The flats challenge lives on...

Note: This adorable "M" watch is still available here! in case you are interested ;)

I want to thank all of you who have wished me a quick recovery from my fractured toe. You are all so sweet and supportive, thank you so much! It is feeling much better now, but it still hurts to wear certain types of shoes...

The sad news is that I cannot wear any heels whatsoever yet (boo hoo!). Oh well, at least I hope this flats challenge serves you all as inspiration on how to style casual flats!

Oh and btw, I couldn't resist taking pictures with my cute piggie iPhone cover again. Not only is it adorable, but it went with the whole I'm-a-super-girlie-girl-who-wears-pink-and-florals vibe of this outfit... hehe

Sunday August 26, 2012

Today was by far one of the best Sunday's I've ever had! Since I knew I was going to have a busy day, I decided to wear this easy but pulled together look. Can you believe I've worn flats for 7 days straight now for the Flats Challenge?! That has to be a new record for me!

I started my fantastic day by going out to eat breakfast with my boyfriend at a french bakery called Petit Paris. We had an assortment of delicious pastries, jams, fruit, coffee, and orange juice... it was absolutely scrumptious!

Then I spent a large part of my afternoon just chilling out with my boyfriend at a park area of Panama called La Cinta Costera.

While we were there, we got to see some really cool cars!! I'm absolutely smitten with this black Chevrolet Camaro ;)

It was a lovely sunny day, perfect to walk around the park and chitchat with my boyfriend.

And as if my Sunday couldn't get any better, my sister and I decided to go see a Cinderella play! It was soooooo good!! The acting was fantastic, as well as the beautiful costumes and special effects. I felt like I had stepped into the Disney movie... hehe.

And there you have it folks, a perfect Sunday according to Marie McGrath. I sincerely can't think of how this day could have been any better!

What would a perfect Sunday for you be like? Any plans in particular?
