WHAT I WORE: 3 Looks 1 LONG Weekend!

Helloooo Young World! I'm finally getting the time to update my blog and bring you guys up to speed on my life. My 4-day weekend turned into being the longest weekend ever, hence why I am just blogging about my weekend. Of course it was 4th of July weekend so I knew that I would be running all over the place but, I was even more excited about the Jay Z and Beyoncé concert (which was AMAZE-BALLS). I had a few interesting looks over the weekend, and I got a lot of inquiries on where I snagged some of my fits as well as my inspiration so I'm here to answer all the questions!

Anyway, my weekend began on Thursday at the pool followed by watching Orange Is New Black (I'm completely obsessed...thanks to my connect!) then it was finally the 4th of July on Friday. I kicked off my holiday weekend by going to a champagne brunch at this swanky apartment building followed by a few cookouts and of course fireworks to check off my Summer Bucket List. Since it wasn't super hot outside and I knew that I wanted be comfortable so I decided to go with a denim jumpsuit and some strappy sandals. I also wanted to embrace my new found vintage frames that magically appeared in my life a few days ago. Of course red, white and blue was on my mind so I tried to incorporate that into my look as well with a signature red lip (MAC baby!).
WHAT I WORE: Denim jumpsuit (similar found here)/ Phillip Lim for Target mini-bag/ White & Silver sandals by ZARA/ Vintage Dolce & Gabbana for MADONNA (old but similar found here)/

My 4th of July was cut short due to my pounding headache so I decided to go home and get some rest as I knew my Saturday would be pretty busy. By Saturday morning I felt 100% better and finally found my outfit for the concert. In celebration of summer and just the beautiful weather I got the chance to sip a few cocktails at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown while catching up with my girlfriend (just what the doctor ordered).

I guess you can say I was still in the spirit of 4th of July by the starry sheer blouse I had on, ideally I wanted wear something loose fitting and transitional since I attended a cookout earlier and had plans on going out for a night out on a town. The weather is still tricky so I'm glad I had this long-sleeve blouse because it was a bit chilly by the time I headed into the city.  

WHAT I WORE: Sheer gold & white blouse by H&M/ White quilted shorts (old) by TOPSHOP/ 'Lance' strappy sandals by Jimmy Choo/   
After a fancy night out on Saturday, I used my Sunday to run a few errands and go to brunch before getting some rest for the BIG day better known as "#ONTHERUN". After doing a few changes to my initial outfit, I decided to embrace the Coachella/Rocker Chic side of me (I'm part Beyoncé too lol..) by taking a few fashion risks and to my surprise my outfit worked out perfectly for the venue. The concert was held at the M&T Bank stadium and I knew I would be doing a bit of walking and these ankle booties were perfectttt, although I was a little hesitant about my shoe choice (I mean who opts to wear booties in the summer? lol) it worked with my overall look and I'm happy.  
WHAT I WORE: Black fedora hat (old) by F21/ Green embellished bralette by TOPSHOP/ Black high-waist shorts (old) by UO/ Chained purse (old)/ suede and leather ankle booties by Ann Taylor/
Now that I've caught you guys up on my life, it's back to grinding it out and prepping for another weekend (hopefully spent by the pool). Wishing everyone a great day and weekend, I'll be back to blogging about fashion, style, and so much more next week!! xoxoxo

Happy 4th of July!

Me in Costa Rica on Memorial Day (May 2014)
Whoop Whoop, it's finally the 4th of July weekend and I can't wait to go to the pool, eat some good hotdogs/hamburgers and enjoy the company of family and friends....and how can I forget see the fireworks?! I'm completely obsessed with Summer so far, I've attended a few day parties and started to check a few things off my Bucket List so I'm a happy girl to say the least. This week has been quite the whirlwind but I have an extended weekend complete with the #OnTheRun tour that I'm elated about...NO, I haven't found my complete outfit but I'm confident that I can find something over the weekend. Anyway, I wanted to wish everyone a very happy and safe 4th of July!! #TeamUSA

SONG OF THE DAY: "Am I Wrong" by Nico and Vinz

Seriously, I've played this song/video like 5 times already! I'm completely obsessed with the lyrics. Enjoy!

So am I wrong?
For thinking that we could be something for real?
Now am I wrong?
For trying to reach the things that I can't see?
But that's just how I feel,
That's just how I feel
That's just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can't see

WEDDING BLISS: Olivia Palermo Marries Beau, Johannes Huebl

Quiet as kept, Stylista Olivia Palermo married her longtime beau, Johannes Huebl over the weekend. After 6 1/2 years of "courting" one of my favorite couples decided to tie the knot in a very romantic ceremony surrounded by their closest family and friends in Bedford, New York. Olivia stayed true to her very effortless style by wearing a custom "cashmere sweater with scattered ostrich feathers and chic white shorts with a full tulle skirt overlay that cinched at the waist in layers of satin and silk and featured a high slit in the front with floral details" according to her site.  The groom wore a tailored white Marc Anthony Hamburg suit with a Marc Anthony Hamburg piquet shirt, a navy Charvet tie and navy Etro pocket square. They clean up pretty nice, what a beautiful couple (I've been Instagram stalking this couple for a VERY long time, it's nice to see them make it official).

Olivia also channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw by wearing "something blue" on her special day, also known as the signature Manolo Blahniks from the movie Sex and the City when Carrie Bradshaw married the love of her life, Big in city all. How New York of Olivia? Congrats to the happy couple! They give me hope...

WHAT I WORE: The Big Kiss To Summer

 Happy Summer Everyone! Last Saturday kicked off the official day of Summer in my bed for most of the day (Friday night wore me out lol) then to my little cousin's grad cookout before I ventured into the city for some quality time. I kept it pretty comfortable and chic as I knew I would end up going to a lounge or walking a few blocks. The weather was so beautiful Saturday night that I made my way to a rooftop on U Street, it was the perfect way to bring in Summer 2014.   

WHAT I WORE: "Kiss me in French" crop top by UO/ Bandage skirt from Nordstom/ Pointy toe Saint Laurent Pumps/ Studded clutch by F21 (old)/

L-R: Brittany, Ashlee and I at Lost society

CHIC OF THE WEEK: Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Chrissy Teigen & More!

Kim Kardashian was my absolute favorite look of the week in this custom made Balmain roped dress in Cannes. She looks like a freakin' goddess, love love love!

Nicole Richie has me wanting to go purple (kidding...I'm not that brave lol) but I love it on her! I want her cropped laced shirt....NOW!

J.LO had so many fabulous looks this week, I have to say this one is my fav. She looks stunning as she is promoting the release of her latest album, AKA.

Lala Anthony blew my mind in this orange suited look with her croc heels, what a great color on her.

Halle Berry has proven time and time again that "She's STILL got it"..I mean seriously she looks flawless. Fab-Mommy indeed! Werkkk!

Selena Gomez kept it street chic and I must say I love it, I need those jeans in my life.

Chrissy Teigen is becoming new favorite on the red carpet, she's stylish yet daring. I'm loving this cream look on her and the slick back hair is tres chic!

Sienna Miller makes me want to go out and buy a biker jacket lol...I love the all black look even though is baking on the East Coast Sienna is keeping warm. Such a great look for the Fall.

Kendal Jenner made a risqué red carpet arrival and although I was on the fence because this dress ages her a little I think she rocked it perfectly.

Kylie Jenner was also quite the stunner this week in this beaded orange dress. Kudos to their stylist, Monica Rose she keeps them in the hottest looks!

SHE WON: Lupita Nyong'o Makes Her First Vogue Cover, July 2014

The "It Woman" of the year, Lupita Nyong'o rightfully got her first cover of Vogue Magazine's July 2014 issue and of course she looks stunning. The Oscar winner and Fashion Icon on the rise has made herself easily the most watched and talked about woman of the year. Her breakout role in 12 Years As A Slave was ground breaking and moving (seriously, one of my favorite movies!) but it was also her glamorous looks on the red carpets that caught my attention. For this issue of the popular fashion bible, Vogue Magazine Lupita was photographed by Mikael Jansson with a rather unique and fitting theme of Egyptian royalty. I mean she is American royalty in my eyes and at 31 years old, she's definitely making it look easy to be so effortlessly fabulous. Check out her full spread below:

How stunning are these pictures? I'm in awe of such beauty, she's totally a natural.

Congratulations to Lupita!
