Leopard Print on a Monday

When I shop, the world gets better, and the world is better, but then it’s not, and I need to do it again. – Rebecca Bloomwood.

There’s really not much to say about this outfit. I had the shirt and I wanted to wear it so I did LOL. It made Monday feel a lot more fun than it really is.

Usually I don’t wear more than one element of an animal print but the shoes matched the shirt so perfectly I figured I could deviate from the norm for once.

I must say I loved how light and comfortable the chiffon shirt was especially with these super hot days.

For those of you who like animal prints, do you prefer to wear strictly one piece or do you mix it up like this?

Oh and for an animalistic feast for the eyes, check out theseMichael Kors pieces that I’m shamelessly lusting after.

I don’t think I need to explain why I love this quote so I’ll just go straight into today’s post. 🙂

 

I picked up this four-strand Bijoux Terner piece at the airport in Grenada last October and it has become a favourite of mine.

Just to give you an idea of the situation when I bought it…I really wasn’t feeling well but I  love airport shopping. There was a sale at Bijoux Terner and I’m convinced that four letter word has magical properties because as I loaded my arms full of cute clutches, I honestly felt better. After the clutches, this necklace caught my eye and it was love at first sight.

So…. Here are some of the ways I’ve been wearing it.

On this particular day I wore it with a red orange cardigan. The length is variable so I wore it almost as long as possible. I was rushing in the morning and forgot to put to in earrings (rare for me) but with all this gold and pearl going on, they almost weren’t missed.

Sometimes  I pair it with a collared shirt and wear it shorter so you see less of it but it still brings an interesting twist to a work outfit.  On those occasions I wear it with the matching earrings.

Another reason I love this necklace is that it can go with a basic tank or tee to add a little glam for either day or night.  In this example, it transformed my outfit from day to night.

With all that versatility at an affordable cost what’s not to love?

Angel wings, a leaf and a bow

I was craving KFC and since I live in one of the few places in Barbados that has a Chefette but no KFC, off to town I had to go… on a Saturday… with all those humans…

Anyway, I needed an outfit that was simple but cute. I’m not gonna lie…this is my go-to ensemble and it works day and night. No labels, no brands. Just add heels and a clutch for night and maybe different accessories. That’s right, a fitted skirt and a racer back tank. $25 skirt and $15 top…no need to kill jeans and t-shirts when there’s this combo. You may add a belt if you wish and/or pull the top out instead of tucking it into the skirt.

(My next post will show my nighttime version so look out for it).

This time I chose angel wing earrings, a leaf pendant and this bow ring that just called my name when it saw me. No really, it did… I’m not crazy. It’s kind of a strange combination but I liked the playfulness of it.
