Zara Sale Picks

Do you know how much I’ve missed you Aunties and Uncles?! Please forgive my absence, but I won’t make excuses! If you’re folllowing me on Instagram and Twitter than you probably had enough of me!

This past weekend, I went to the Blogging While Brown Conference and let me just say, SHEESH. I’ll talk all about it in my upcoming #BWBNYC photo diary post. (This is going to be the best week on my blog so stay tuned for the next several posts!) Now that we’ve covered housekeeping items….

Zara is really annoying with their continued reductions during semi-annual sale. I mean, how much easier would our shopping lives be if Zara priced items at it’s lowest from day one of sale?! I’ve been stalking this lace top for quite some time, and I’m glad I didn’t buy it before sale time. It is now 10$ cheaper than I bought it for so enjoy! I decided to wear a nude bandeau under it and a pastel blue leather pencil skirt. A bit apprehensive about this skirt because, I mean let’s face it, who wants to wear leather in 80 degree weather? (apparently I do) I wore my fave light Blue Aldo pumps and White coach bag to complete this pastel look.

-Be blessed!

Bon Jour

H&M Straw Hat // Forever 21 Tank (Similar Here) // Choies Skirt // Zara Heels (Old; Similar Here) // Rayban Classic Wayfarer // H&M Necklace (Old)

Here’s what I wore when I went shopping with my mother. I actually started to wear cut out jeans and a long sleeve shirt but after coming to my senses, I quickly changed into this look. It’s entirely way too hot to wear clothing, so I like to keep it cool by wearing clothes that barely touch my skin.

Straw hats serve multi-purposes. It’s a nice, fashionable way to keep cool in the summer but it can also add spice to your outfit. When going for a short brimmed straw hat, I always go for a light sand color, with a black band. I guess you can call this the original straw hat color. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, full skirts are pretty big these days. They can look a bit dressy, so I added a graphic tank top to make the look more casual. It wouldn’t be Aunty Christina without heels so I decided to wear a Zara favorite, these leopard and studded peep-toe heels. Speaking of Zara, did you shop their semi- annual sale last night? I’m curious to know what you got!!! Comment below 🙂

– Be Blessed.

Live Colorfully

IMG_3366 A little night shot won’t hurt anyone… But will I be doing more of these in the future? Mmmm nehhh lolIMG_3374 You ever get really excited when two pieces match almost perfectly? Yeah, well that happened when I realized my Harvey Faircloth skirt matched with my Christian Louboutin Astrogirl pumps. I love the split action and asymmetry on this skirt! I wanted to play on the pink so I added a subtle pink striped collared shirt from J. Crew and pink cat eye glasses from Aldo. IMG_3377 IMG_3378 IMG_3381 IMG_3386IMG_3387

Mint Green and Red


IMG_3260 Hiya! Here’s what I wore to church on Sunday! I love the way mint green and red look together! It makes me feel Christmas-y… Full skirts have become everyone’s obsession and I’m actually happy about that. (The cool thing about this one is that it comes with a shawl 🙂 ) The fact that it’s popular to dress like a woman and not a skeezer makes me smile! I actually got so many compliments from men this day, which also made me smile. Not because I liked the attention, but because it proves that you don’t have to expose your body for people to notice you.

 I’ve had this magazine clutch for some time now. It was love at first sight! Originally I purchased the black and white one, but the next day, Dor L’ Dor had the multi-color one so I exchanged it immediately!! What do you think?IMG_3308 IMG_3266 IMG_3271 IMG_3278 IMG_3297 IMG_3309Photography by The Product Junkie
