The most beautiful summer dress, in my opinion, with a very uncommon color combination: blue and purple. No matter what I say about this dress, it’s not going to show you how beautiful it is. From the gorgeous floral pattern, to how soft the fabric is to how it flows, it’s really hard to describe the beauty of this dress with words. It’s perfect for a beach day or even a shopping day. But I also recommend it for all the boho lovers as it also has that bohemian vibe. It also runs longer at the back, which is actually a plus in my opinion. The deep V neckline is also a nice detail that makes this dress very laid back, but sexy at the same time.

I had the most perfect pair of sandals to wear it with. They are an old purchase and I don’t wear them often, but they were a perfect match for this dress. 

For accessories, I opted for a pair of blue earrings and a beaded porcelain bracelet that I actually purchased at a jewelry art fair last summer.

It’s not only Nordstrom that has a big sale now. There are also other amazing stores that are having great sales as well. Here are my latest purchases that I scored for very cheap.

The first are three summer dresses because it’s still summer, right? I particularity like the Twist-Back T-Shirt Dress, as it has a cute opening at the back with unique twist detailing. Also, I don’t have anything in that color, so I’m really loving it. You can also get it in black, but hurry, this dress is almost sold out. I also love the Crochet Lace Tie-Belt Dress. It’s perfect for errands, or a casual day, but still has that beautiful crochet detailing and the belt complements it perfectly. You can also get it in green. The Sleeveless Jersey Dress is very simple, but I love striped dresses. This one has a nice burgundy and white combination, which I absolutely love. It also comes in four other solid colors.

And lastly, I also stocked up on pants. I needed a good dark pair of skinny jeans, so I got the Mid Rise True Skinny Ankle Jeans, which I’m very happy with. As for the Tencel Print Utility Joggers, I’ve been eyeing them forever, and what better time to buy them then now when they are on sale! They will be perfect for in between weather with a light denim jacket. The blue Petite Off The Shoulder Tee is marked way down now where you can get it for about $10! Unbelievable prices on all these things, I’m telling you. Just remember, if you like something, don’t think twice as these things will be gone before you know it. After all, it’s the end of season sales.

Fruit Infused Iced Tea – Summer Dinner Idea

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone. #ServeWithACoke #Jewel #CollectiveBias

One thing you don’t know about me, is that I love to cook! I have always wanted to incorporate some cooking into my blog and make it a little bit more lifestyle as well, so here it is. I’m going to share a fantastic summer meal with you in this very first recipe post. I don’t know about you, but usually in summertime, when it’s hot outside, I’m not into cooking at all. You’re outside a lot, enjoying the warm, sunny days and there is really not enough time left for cooking. That especially holds so true when Friday comes. That’s why I keep it very simple every Friday and instead of cooking, we either order takeout or prepare something really quick and easy (and by that I mean grabbing something from the store that is all or almost ready to eat).

 

Fruit Infused Iced Tea - Summer Dinner Idea

 

Last Friday I decided to try Jewel’s signature chicken meal deal. Not only does it come with a full cooked chicken, but also comes with your choice of sides (cole slaw, mashed potatoes, potato salad), as well as Hawaiian sweet rolls. What’s great about this meal is the fact that it’s all cooked. That means you don’t have to heat up your stove and sit by it to watch your chicken on that hot summer day. Genius right? Dinner is basically served in minutes! Another great part is the large bottle of Gold Peak® that comes with every meal. You can choose from many flavors, it tastes great and goes with everything. Its perfectly balanced flavors complete our meal so well.

But I wanted to add a little touch to make my iced tea taste even better, so I prepared it with a twist. And, as a result, I ended up making a fruit infused iced tea made out of the Gold Peak Tea that came with the chicken meal deal. It’s nothing too complicated to make so don’t get discouraged. I just added some berries along with lemon juice and fresh mint leaves that I have growing outside.

Can you even call it a recipe? It’s so simple that it all comes together in seconds. I told you this dinner is the quickest dinner ever! It saved us all the hassle of cooking on that hot Friday we had. Trust me, you will see how convenient it is, and if you are like me, you’ll want to incorporate this into your meal rotation. Plus, I have to tell you, it was delicious. Look what you can put together out of this easy and delicious combo from Jewel.

Gingham is so popular this summer and I have to tell you I have totally embraced it. You might remember the post I did not so long ago where I wore a red gingham dress. In case you missed it, or want to check it out, here it is. This dress is an absolute dream. It’s so fresh, youthful and something I’ve never had before. It features beautiful ruffle sleeves and the black and white gingham pattern. The bow ties at the back are stunning, and are a most welcome addition. Wearing this dress, I felt like a Parisienne girl wearing a Chanel dress. The gingham pattern makes this beauty stand out even more, like all the amazing detailing is not enough to admire. Be ready for a lot of looks and compliments from other people when out and about wearing this stunner. I absolutely love this dress!

I decided to pair it up with a black purse and white sandals, but you can totally do either a white bag and sandals, or black everything, I decided to mix it up this time.

 For accessories, I only wore a pair of simple white earrings as I didn’t want to take aways from the beauty of this dress. It has so much going on already, there is no need to dress it up.

Did I mention this dress is under $20? This was the best purchase I’ve done this summer and the most beautiful dress I’ve bought. This one will not disappoint you!

Isn’t this white and navy look Kendall is spotted wearing flawless? You can shop her look above, although, let me warn you, it’s not the cheapest one. But let’s talk about her pink floral shoes, which happen to be a trend she’s loving at the moment (according to her App). Since it’s, in fact, such a big trend right now, I went ahead and found similar style pumps that you might like and want to wear during the summer, like Kendall declared she would . So take a look at the five pairs I found interesting and let me know what you think about the floral shoe trend this season.

This post features this absolutely adorable short sleeved powder color dress. The shade of this dress is even nicer in person and I love how nice and clean it looks. The subtle yet beautiful detailing – the opening and button on top – is everything this dress needs as it’s all about simplicity with this one. Because of its sophisticated look, it’s perfect for summer parties, weddings, baptisms, even work, as well as any other formal occasions. I paired it up with a pair of beige sandals and a white crossbody bag. Because of the simplicity of this dress, you can easily dress it up with a nice pair of earrings and some bracelets but I decided to keep it the way it is with no additional jewelry.

This dress might look seemingly simple and casual at first glance, but in fact, it has a lot of going on. Between the beautiful silhouette with the flare accent and the oh so trendy palm leaf print, it’s actually an amazing dress that can easily be dressed down or up depending on an occasion and type of day. I opted to wear it casually with a pair of white sandals and a pastel pink bag (matching the leaves patterns on the dress), but I can easily envision it with a pair of high heeled brown sandals for a date night as well. Also, I really love the color palette on this dress: brown, white, pastel pink and mint altogether look so pretty, and you can match your shoes and accessories with any of those colors. I really like pastel pink accessories this summer and because of that I’m so glad I got this amazing cross body bag because I’m really getting a lot out of it. I’m wearing it almost every day! Good news – all my outfit pieces: sandals, dress as well as the bag are now under $10 each. Don’t miss out on the fabulous sales on these items. Details below:
