You ever feel like giving up on everything? Well, I’ve been really out of it lately so I’m trying to renew my mind. What I love about photography is its many ways it can illustrate whatever you want it to illustrate. A picture truly can say a thousand words. Or it can simply just be a picture. Anytime I’m in front of a camera, I forget for those few seconds about my current situation and start to think of the message I want to relay to my audience. Its an escape from reality. But we can’t really escape reality forever, can we?
Paul says in Romans 8:18- “The sufferings of this present times are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” I just want to encourage anyone reading to not be consumed with their current situations, for they do not compare to what we’ll soon experience after this life. That’s why its so important to believe in Jesus Christ and what He did for us on the cross.
These suede Via Spiga shoes are my new favorites. But I guess I say that about everything new, huh?
Sunglasses: Burberry // Leather Jacket: H&M (old; but love this one) // Floral top: Zara (bought the shorts to match too)// Pants: Forever 21 (Old) // Shoes: Via Spiga (found on eBay) // Clutch: Primark // Earrings : Banana Republic // Rings: Payless (old)
I went to my favorite restaurant in the whole world- Cheesecake Factory on Saturday which automatically put me in a fabulous mood. It was quite warm out so I decided to go for an almost all white look. This J. Crew top is pretty cool, as the sleeves fold and button up to your preference. I paired it with this striped mesh skirt from a boutique called Dor L’ Dor.
Can you believe the skirt was on sale for $19.99? It’s such a unique piece, with an exposed zipper trailing down the middle. My bag is from Forever 21.
I love these Jeffrey Campbell Matara Sandals because its unique and patent leather. I got so many compliments when I wore them!
As I mentioned yesterday in my prior post, I was contacted by the Content Director of Vegas.com to curate outfits for a vacation in Las Vegas at the Aria Resort & Casino. This post is dedicated to a lunch date at Lemongrass. Now if you’re like me, you most likely prefer to be over-dressed than under-dressed. That’s exactly why I love the black and white striped outfit on the left. Stripes, if styled appropriately, can easily turn plain materials into note-worthy clothing. While the norm may be to match similar striped patterns, I’d recommend matching vertical/horizontal and diff. sized stripes. The detailing on the bottom of this skirt alone is enough receive a slew of compliments. Complete the look with Christian Louboutin Pigalles and the magnificent Kate Spade book clutch! If you’ve been following, then you probably noticed this is the second time I’ve featured this clutch. (Looks like a purchase is in order!) This Kate Spade clutch is the perfect Olympia Le-Tan inspired style at a fraction of the cost! I can’t get enough!
Like true Aunty Christina fashion, I ALWAYS overpack when traveling. It’s uncomfortable for me to be away from my closet for extended periods of time as I always second, third, and fourth guess my outfits. To mitigate this, I always pack two completely different looks that compliment each other. Here are two things I am currently loving: boyfriend jeans and cropped tops. I kept the color scheme the same as the first outfit in order to give you more flexibility in deciding outfits. For example, this River Island yellow cropped top could easily be paired with the skirt, and vice versa! you could also swap the Louboutins for the second outfit and blend trendy with chic!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on my outfit picks! Are you the chic or the trendy type? Maybe a blend of both?
Last week, I was contacted by the Content Director of Vegas.com to curate outfit ideas for those that will be traveling to the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas this summer! Should you decide to visit the extravagant and upscale Javier’s restaurant for dinner, above is an outfit idea that’ll be an eye-catcher but so venue appropriate! Pair a floral pencil skirt with a slim -fitted orange cropped top from Topshop. To compliment the pastel detailing in the skirt, add these gorgeous and very stylish pastel pumps from Aldo. Complete the look with statement earrings, a Michele watch, cat eye sunnies, and a classic double- flap Chanel bag! I also found a less expensive bag at Tory Burch that’ll go with this look!
Stay tuned for other #MyVegasStyle outfits this week!
