Hello Loves, 

Last night, Eddie and I dined at a restaurant with a bit of a casual feel; I knew before hand because we dined there for the first time in the beginning of September. That time, I dressed a bit more dressier, but nothing too over the top. This time around, I kept things a bit simple, yet there was a bit of a dressy feel, due mainly to the texture and style of the dolman top. I love dolman tops because they're versatile; they can easily transition from day to night or from a casual setting to a more business causal one. This one in particular has such a soft and feminine texture; extremely cozy and perfect for a fall night out. Fortunately it wasn't too cold, so I was able to get away with not wearing a jacket on top, which I was happy about because I think a jacket would've spoiled the look a bit. 

Speaking of the complete look, I decided to create a pairing that mixed a couple of shades of grey with navy. Grey blends so nicely with blue, especially navy because grey has a cool undertone and so does blue. Colors that share either the same hue or undertones, are guaranteed to work well together. Something I touched on briefly in this week's video on another fall color I love, orange.

Navy and grey are a combination that looks stellar on those who have cool undertones, most commonly those with very fair or very dark skin. They bring out those cool undertones and as a result, provide a nice healthy glow to the skin. This is not to say that those who have warmer undertones cannot wear them or don't look good in them either. Some colors just tend to flatter certain or specific skin-tones more than others and that's okay! 

I also wanted to briefly discuss the top I'm wearing. It's dolman top, which has a very flowy style, which I personally find cozy. It's also a piece that can be worn during the day or night, since it shares both a dressy and casual tendency. It's also super flattering on most body shapes. For us pear and rectangular shapes, they provide a bit of volume to help fill out our smaller upper bodies. In the case of the apple shape, depending on the length of the top, it can help conceal and flatter a larger bust and midsection. The reason I mention the length is because if it ends before the widest part of the hips, it'll make the upper body appear larger. If it stops where the hips are, it'll have the opposite effect, creating a longer and leaner upper body. So these may want to consider these suggestions when shopping for this particular style of blouse.

I hope this outfit inspires you to recreate it on yourself or one with a similar look the next time you're out with your ladies or bae :)



Thanks so much for stopping by and please do return tomorrow!

Hello gorgeous people!

Tuesday night, Eddie and I went to a Caribbean restaurant in the resort and it was ok. To be quite honest I wasn't all that happy with the food, but it's ok, we're on vacation and it's all inclusive, which I HIGHLY suggest when you go away, so you don't have to worry about paying for anything, all you can eat and endless beverages. We've noticed..(CLICK READ MORE!!!)

Hi everyone!

First, I would like to ask all of you to stop and pray and think of those who have suffered loses in both the Boston bombings and the Waco, Texas explosion. Something is truly taking place on this earth that is incomprehensible and evil, that should not and cannot be ignored! If you follow me on twitter or Facebook, you have read my quote, "let's replace selfishness with selflessness." Although we may not have been affected directly, we are all humans and feel the same pain, so let's consider that of which the people involved are feeling at this present time.(CLICK READ MORE!!!)
