Walking the streets of Old San Juan Puerto Rico, reminded me of Italy, Cuba, and any small alley or street with tiny cobbled stone pathways. A culturally beautiful city where the colors of the streets are enhanced by the lifestyle, I kept reminding myself everything moves slower, especially when Its Island time. To follow my Instagram Diary of the city, check out:

I feel know my body so well that I know what styles work on me. Shift Dresses are my go to choice, so when I saw this olive green shift dress with its low scooped back, I just knew I had to have it. It’s sexy, it’s slinky, and it’s lightweight. The low back lets let jewelry drip down, showcasing a linear style. On the streets here in Puerto Rico it is hot, so lightweight silk chiffon works great. The colors of the small cobbled streets remind me of Italy. Know what works for your body, and then work it! Hubba Hubba to that!
I am a hunter. I love the chase, the hunt, the find, the score – so when I found this beauty of a vintage white lace blouse, that fit me like a glove, it was destined to be mine. Perhaps I am late to the game, but I have been binge watching the TV show Mad Men. I wish we lived in a time where people dressed up all the time. Walking the streets of old San Juan Puerto Rico, I got a sense of a mini Havana.From the tiny cobblestone streets, to the walls so brightly colored, it reminded me as I always to, to hurry up an
One day I hit the jackpot. I was shopping at my favorite vintage store that carries designer and modern vintage, when I came across this slinky number. There was no label, but I was dying to know; Who could make this simple chic, best little red dress and I not know who it is? I know – conundrum of the century right?!? #firstworldproblems. But I did know this – it was bright, simple, and stunning enough, that it would turn heads, and it did. Less is always more!
I am so happy that olive green is back in. I always get inspired by local people, destinations, environments and hometown colors. Island style clothing is a trend of it’s own, reserved for those hot days that require thin layers for draping. In keeping with a minimal clean palette, the blouse acts as as a thin jacket, and the white tee anchors the outfit, which contrasts so well against the green. The Aztec print on the shorts create texture, and the nude flats, add polish and sophistication to an easy breezy daytime outfit. Think clean lines and simple, and you’re on your ways to tropical island chic.
Does a crisp summer outfit get any cleaner than paired with great white summer shorts? Not really. In keeping in line with a minimalist theme, I choose not to wear a belt, and paired the look with nude flats, which also keeps the outfit polished and clean. A blend of silk & cotton, the blouse reminds of my favorite china print, “The Willow Pattern”. Classy and chic, I know what works for my body and that’s low waited shorts. When you know your body type, rock what you wear and rock it well!
