Ash Platinum

Working retail has definitely boosted my confidence on my hair color choice. There were times where I wasn't sure if the platinum was doing me any favors, but I've gotten so many compliments in the past couple of weeks. Hats off to my hairdresser Vanessa Dunson, she is amazing.

I have people ask me what shampoo I use to keep it looking from going copper-ish after a wash. The not so secret? I use Shimmer Lights by Clairol -shampoo and conditioner. It's purple in color, so it gets rid of the yellow copper tones in your hair. 
Ash platinum is here to stay! 

Now about the outfit: this cardigan reminds me of Rey's outfit from Star Wars. It's a great versatile piece that looks cute with jeans, shorts, dresses or possibly a Rey costume for Halloween?
The shorts have an abstract print but it makes me think of feathered native american headdresses. Anyone else see that?

Honey Dip

This soft sleeveless sweater is cool and comfortable enough to wear in this nasty summer heat. My love for neutrals never dies; I just can't ever have enough white tops. 

I look forward to the beginning of each month, as it's when the Free People catalog arrives. My last favorite catalog was back in April 2016; I wanted to jump inside every single page and join in on the adventure. The August issue has me swooning over almost every page, and there's a lot of pieces I'm already loving... Excuse me while I go chase my wallet, I think I heard it run away.


P.S check out the behind scenes of the Free People catalog; filmed in my home country, Peru

Overalls, Coffee and Music

Nothing says comfort like a pair of overalls... and this pair takes overalls to a 'cute' level. Cute and comfort, I'm in. Who says they are just for kids? 

I've been on the search for new music and I came across a few bands I'm currently digging. Lord Huron's beautiful relaxing sound mixed with some Jack and Eliza's vintage 60's guitar vibe with a Beachboys-like vocals have become part of my days off as I sit and enjoy some freshly brewed coffee. I would suggest you check them out.   -You are welcome.

Baja Top

It's summer, but I couldn't say no to the cutest hoodie. It would be perfect for the beach if I only lived in Cali. But for Florida it's meant for rainy days combined with air conditioned rooms... sigh...

I practically live in this hoodie. Who wouldn't? The colors are perfect.

So a coffee shop somewhat near me opened in the last couple of months called Switchbox. Cool place, but most importantly their coffee is great as is the people that work there; because no one likes a coffee shop with snobby employees.

The hubs and I have been there a couple of times now, and this time I bought myself some Ethiopia blend beans to brew at home, and I'm loving it. What can I say! I love me some chemex coffee.

Belts & Rings

Am I cooking in an oven? This summer is getting to be too much. I believe white is the perfect summer outfit since it doesn't attract as much heat as dark colors do. But I have to say it, Summer is my least favorite season.

I love the Bombay tank from Free People, and I'm all about the lace halter bra which adds a cute detail to the low neckline. Also, have I mentioned I'm becoming a magnet for accessories? Working at Free People is going to increase my newest addiction: belts and rings.

Show Some Shoulder

In the four weeks that have gone by I have missed blogging. Cloudy weather and rain has mostly been the cause of it; but at least I can say I've managed to have two posts in June.

This cute off-shoulder top arrived to Free People and I was excited to finally get it. Aside from the fun bare shoulder look, I love the cute ties on the sleeves; It's the little details.
The fact that it's loose and flowy will make you either hate it or love it... -I LOVE it {insert 'heart eyes' emoji}.

It's been toasty here on the east coast, and wearing boots isn't really helping my situation. But you just can't take boots away from this girl, ever.
