Fashion Remix: 1 shoe; 3 ways.

Hello my loves! From now on when I wear an item more than 3 times I will be doing a poll to find out which look is your favorite based on that one item. This time I wore these ShoeMint Blush Suede “Edith” platform three times. Each look was unique with kept with the color scheme; blush tones. For the same shoe, that’s not sold out online, these Steve Madden “Viktoree” are available.

CAN-CANNES

After my trip to St.Tropez, I was off to Cannes. I was really looking forward to a mellower environment, as I felt St.Tropez was a little heavy in the “over-the-top” department. Cannes was a splendid change full of energy that wasn’t snooty and the shopping was to-die-for. So many amazing boutiques scattered all around the city. Restaurants are around ever corner and they all looked delicious!

When we arrived, there were fireworks at night, and we could see them from our table in the restaurant…but I wish we were on the beach. Next time!

The city itself is beautiful, the buildings are gorgeous and the city has so much character! Along the beach boardwalk, there were various cut out posters where you could stick your head in and be Cameron Diaz from Charlie’s Angels, or in my case, Jack Sparrow! So cute and complimentary of their well known Film Festival!

I love Cannes and I hope to come for the Film Festival just to experience the city for what it’s well known for!

Here are pictures! Enjoy!

Au Revoir, St. Tropez!

Bonjour Cannes!

MY WHITE BIKINI TOP: SAUVAGE “MON CHERI” WRAP BIKINI TOP ( For those who saw my pictures previously!)

Overall, I loved Cannes! It was a city, with a beach-vibe. The people were super friendly, and laid-back which was a nice change from St.Tropez!

Places to check out:

HOTEL CAVENDISH= Excellent Hotel. Great Rates, and friendly, friendly staff!

CAVEAU 30: Great food, ambiance & wine list!

PLAGE LA CROISETTE: Lots of Beach clubs, great water, fun, and close to the shopping 🙂

 

Summer Loving: Around the World

Summer time is one of my favorites, not for the hot days, but more for the warm nights. No matter where you are, having a nighttime outfit for a summer night date is a must. For the summer, I lock away my LBD’s (Little Black Dresses) because when it’s warm and beautiful out, why be dressed in black? If black is something you need to have, then have a  pop of color with your shoes and accessories! This post is all about color.

This particular post is all about travel and no matter where you go this Summer, these looks are sure to make you stand out! I’ll be styling looks for Los Angeles, London, Istanbul, Paris & St.Tropez (divided into two posts).

Let’s begin our travelling to…

1. LOS ANGELES

Los Angeles is known for it’s laid-back vibe and beach bunny feel. On the contrary to popular belief of Los Angeles being super dressy, it’s actually a very mellow place. Unless you’re in Hollywood going to a club, you don’t need to over-do it. You can go to a nice restaurant in a cute floral dress and heels! When in L.A…the simpler the better (I’m serious).

1. Purple Split Neck Halter- TOPSHOP

2. Glitter Pumps- Christian Louboutin

3. Blue Suede Heels- TOPSHOP

4. Nude Heels- ALDO 

5. Gold Bangles- Mulberry

6. Blue Stone Ring- Yves Saint Laurent

7. Solid Heart Earrings- AUSTIQUE

8. Blue Handbag- Balenciaga

9.  Blue Clutch- Ted Baker

The reason I love Purple & Blue is that they compliment each other so nicely. It may seem like a weird combo at first, but when put together, it’s one hot look. Blake Lively recently sported this color combo and let me just say, she turned heads. You can always do a color with nude as well, but finding colors that complement each other is a must!

2. ST. TROPEZ

St. Tropez is a luxury beach town in the South of France. I have never been, YET, but I can only imagine how fierce everyone will look in beachy-luxurious outfits at night. I myself, am way too excited to start shopping for this part of my trip, and I stumbled upon this look which can be dissected and turned from a daytime look to a nighttime. Below is the nighttime version, but this dress is to-die-for and I had to utilize it in this portion of my date night outfits. After all, how dressy do you want to get in St. Tropez? It’s like the Bodrum, Turkey of France, and we don’t go there to only be stylish, but we go there to party! This look is daytime/dinner time/and party time appropriate. Score!

1. Dolly Dress- TOPSHOP

2. Neon Canvas Sandal- ZARA

3. Color Block Sandal- SIREN

4. Stone Sandal- Jimmy Choo

5. Floral Stilettos- Forever 21

6. Wrap Bracelets: Chan Luu

7. Flower Earrings- Urban Outfitters

8. Turquoise Ring: Les Pommettes 

9. Ring- Dsquared

10. Gold Watch- American Apparel

11. Bangles- Paige Novick

12. Nude Bag- CHANEL

13. Colorblock Handbag- ASOS

14. Red Handbag- BALENCIAGA

I know I kind of threw a lot of things on top of each other, but there are SO many options with this look that I just couldn’t resist basically throwing together about three outfits at once. You can literally do ANYTHING with this dress as it’s almost like a blank canvas. If these shoes are too funky, you can do a solid colored pump, think blue, pink, red, or purple, or keep it totally simple and accessorize the dress with a bib necklace, or chunky pendants.

Stay tuned for Paris, Istanbul & London summer night looks!

Which look did you like best?

Fit & Fab

I’ve recently really got into fitness and believe me, it was really hard to get motivated. Once I started embracing the world of fitness, I’ve become happier and more energetic, and it’s given me another excuse to shop, not for red sole heels or a lace tank, but for cute athletic wear. I’m not one to drop big bucks on Lululemon (I don’t think I’m ready to switch my budget from clothes to athletic wear yet, BUT I’m getting there), but there are various companies that sell great athletic wear at reasonable prices. One of my tips, that’s not fitness related, is to shop sale items for major brands. I bought some great stuff at half off! Always check!

I love layering tanks & sports bra’s over loose racer back t-shirts and cami’s. This allows you to color block (one of the summer’s hottest trends) and not look too overdressed. The great thing about working out is that you CAN be trendy.

I’ll make this post easy to navigate and start from TOPS to BOTTOMS!

1. Sports Bra’s & Tanks

This Y-back cami from Forever 21 is a great sports bra that is racer back friendly and comes in an array of colors, and it’s only $9.

For more support, this high impact racerback sports bra is a great alternative, also from Forever 21.

I love this contrast striped sports bra from Forever 21 and the concept is stylish and functional.

Basic is always best as you can throw on a great tank over a solid sports bra! Also from Forever 21.

Below are some awesome tanks that are cute, trendy and most importantly functional!

Via Forever 21.  

Body Language Alba Top #176

I love this knotted front sports bra from Body Language, it’s so dainty and even though you’ll be the only one seeing it (unless you don’t mind going bare belly), it’s a fun twist!

Couture Active Wear Halter Bra Top #J1013

Couture Active Wear Belt Loop Bra #J1140B

These (Top 2) ADORABLE and super flirty work out tops are so freakin’ cute, I could only dream of being able to sport them. If you can, Couture Active Wear has them in a variety of colors.

Bia Brazil Top #TT2203

This Bia Brazil top is something I see Kim Kardashian rocking. It’s simple, not too sexy, stylish and clean.

2. Bottoms for your Booty

Bottoms I think are great when basic, but a play on trim color is always fun! Below are some great styles that won’t break the bank!

Via Forever 21.

Body Language V Front Pants #402

These adorable V-front pants from Body Language are playful and a little sexy, if you’re OK with being a little playful while sweating it out!

Margarita Activewear Capri #302TPrint

Want a little Pucci-inspired work out pant? These from Margarita Activewear are your go-to!

Modella Band Cuff 3/4 Pants

These Elisabetta Rogiani pants come in plethora of color combinations! You can mix and match your tops to your bottoms!

Sport Band 3/4 Pants- tight

Same goes for these if you want that pop of color on your upper body rather than lower! Also from Elisabetta Rogiani!

Remember, when buying shoes, buy something you feel good in! The cool thing these days are the variety of color schemes to choose from, so you can REALLY coordinate if you want! Always a helpful tip; all black sneakers go with everything ;).

That’s all I can come up with right now, but stay tuned for customized outfits and a great post of athletic shoes!
