Happy Friday loves! How crazy is it that we’re already past the first week of August and more than half way through the year? Our son just turned four months old recently. I can’t believe how fast time has flown by.

Today I’m wearing something you’ve never seen on the today — high waisted denim shorts. I’ve always seen these all summer long but I never had the confidence to wear them. Shorts in general are not flattering on me. They tend to make me look extra petite. But recently I came across some cute high waisted shorts and decided to give them try. Since then, I’m basically hooked. These ones from Target is a true gem. I love the wash and fit of these shorts. They’re easy to style, cute to wear and not to mention make your legs look so long. They go well above your tummy, so you can eat as much as you want. LOL! I actually wore this outfit to our anniversary dinner not so long ago. We still celebrate our monthly anniversary. And having to celebrate it with our son just makes it even more special.

For this casual chic look, I’m pairing the high waisted denim shorts with a flowy black crop top, sandal heels and this gorgeous triple-pocket backpack from Campos. It’s such a brilliant and unique design and it holds so much. Beside looking gorgeous, it’s quite a practical bag to travel and going out with. It’s also made in the US (yay!) and made to order actually. Each bag is handmade the minute you order and the leather that it’s made from is one of the softest I’ve had.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll have a fab weekend!

Easy, effortless and romantic are the words that come to mind when I think of boho chic. And it’s everything that describes this cute boho inspired playsuit I’m wearing today. I came across it recently and instantly fell in love. The cut of this playsuit is very flattering and the print is gorgeous. It has an vibrant earthy feel that I love so much. Adding to the boho vibe, I’m wearing a floral kimono and riding boots. Since we went on a hike right after this shoot, I wanted to wear something comfortable to walk on. The riding boots were perfect for the occasion. However, if I didn’t have to walk so much, I would have worn the playsuit with sandal heels.

Happy August Lovelies! What better to way to relish the fleeting summer days than wearing some cute mini skirts, right? I am a firm believer that you are never too old or young to rock a mini skirt. It all comes down to how you style them, but most importantly always wear them with confidence!

Today I’m partnering Redbubble to showcase four chic ways to style mini skirts. These aren’t just any mini skirts you guys, they’re super adorable graphic mini skirts designed by amazing artists from around the world. Having over a million designs to choose from, you probably think it must have been daunting for me to select a few favorites, but it was rather easy! I had an idea of the type of designs I wanted, and all it took were a few clicks to find exactly what I was looking for.
