I instantly fell in love with this dress the moment I first saw it on the website. The pink and gold combo is so elegant! My favorite part is the super gorgeous traditional Indian “zari” detailing on the dress. Also, the fit and flare cut is super flattering!

Gingham jumpsuit..

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
I hope you had a great weekend! Here’s one of the outfits that I wore during my trip to LA last week. It’s our first time visiting LA! I will recap our trip in a future blog post but first I wanted to share this cool look I wore in LA. My husband and I grabbed some coffee and then did some exploring Beverly Hills and walking down Rodeo Drive to the main shopping district Beverly Hills. It was a gorgeous shopping district with the most beautiful flagship stores. You don’t even have to be a shopper to enjoy all that Rodeo Drive has to offer!

So, I scooped up the most adorably chic gingham jumpsuit from Asos and I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys. This black and white gingham jumpsuit is perfect and oh so comfortable. It comes in both regular and petite sizing. Gingham is totally trending now and you don’t want to miss out on this perfect Spring/Summer piece! Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful week, friends!

Tulip picking…

Hi everyone!

I am all about going to farms in the fall for apple and pumpkin picking, but I had no idea there was an equivalent for spring! So, last weekend we made our way out to this cutest little, local pick-your-own-flowers farm, Wicked Tulips Flower Farm. This farm has the largest you-pick tulip field in New England. It was so beautiful. I’ve always wanted to go to Holland to pick their legendary tulips! Luckily, we’ve discovered this lovely tulip farm closer to my home where you can see acres of blooming flowers that’s fun for both taking pictures and picking your own. All you need are pre-purchased tickets  during Saturday-Sunday and also during the week, because they sell out even during the week.

The farm provides baskets, and the tulips are $1 each and you just pull the tulips straight up out of the ground, and that’s all there is to it! At check-out, there are flower cutting and wrapping stations with vases to take home as well!

If you are one of those people out there who see pretty tulips around town and wish they could pick them to take home. This is your chance! Make sure to mark your calendars, and visit this beautiful farm if you live in New England! Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week ahead!

Crochet love..

Hi ladies!

Happy Friday! We are in the final stretch to the weekend! So this look pretty much screams weekend ready. It is the perfect, cute but still comfy combo! I seriously cannot get enough of this crochet top! I love wearing trendy pieces that are also extremely comfortable and versatile. I wanted to share this look with my new favorite crochet top from Chicwish.

Every little detail of this top is just too good! Firstly, I love the bell sleeves so when I saw this crochet top had bell sleeves, I was all over it. The velvet piping detail on the arms is so fun and the fit is spot on! The top is a total must-have fashion item this season. It’s perfect for day wear and also to dress up for a glamorous evening out.  I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week and weekend! <3

One shoulder ruffle top…

Hi ladies!
I’m wearing another top with ruffles! I own way too many ruffle tops. But can you blame me? This one was just way too pretty to pass up. I love everything about this top from the color, to the fit, to the price tag. Also, this top is a piece that I saw all over my social media feed and I couldn’t help but love it. I’ve been eyeing it for a while and I finally got it! I paired it my white jean leggings from Express.
These gorgeous wedge sandals are by DSW and I am 100% smitten with these pretties! They are so comfy and will be perfect for Spring and Summer. Also, grey color goes with everything, so, I highly recommend them!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week ahead!

A day in Savannah…

Hi everyone!

I had the pleasure of visiting and experiencing Savannah for a day during my Charleston trip a month ago. It’s about an hour and a half drive from Charleston and one of the prettiest cities I’ve ever visited.

Needless to say, I absolutely loved Savannah. To take in Savannah’s best attractions, all you need are comfy shoes and a map. Savannah is a city abound with picturesque parks and squares, cobblestone streets lined with boutiques and restaurants, and architecture with endless history buried in its walls. If you prefer a guided tour, you can take a carriage ride or hop on board one of the city’s many tour buses.

Our tour was a self-guided one and my favorite part was strolling around the beautiful historic downtown. We went to some really pretty parks and coffee shops. Paris Market was my favorite. It’s a piece of Paris in Savannah.  Also, I found a piece of London in Savannah. Yes! There’s this cutest red telephone booth near Six pence pub that reminds you of London. Be sure to visit these photo-op places when in Savannah. You’ll surely love them.

About my outfit- I’ve been updating my wardrobe with more color and more florals. I am obsessed with the light blue color and the flattering style of this top from Zara’s spring collection. I’ve been lusting over so many pieces from Zara lately and this top is my favorite. It is so stylish and comfortable. I got so many compliments wearing this top. My espadrilles are from ASOS and these are super pretty as well as super comfy. They are available in many lovely colors.

P.S.  I found these cute pink and gray elephants on the outside of All American Fireworks store on US 17. I-95 exit 5. – while driving back to Charleston.

Have a great week ahead, lovelies!

Yellow ruffle off the shoulder dress…

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe we stepped into Spring already. I’ve been loving a lot of off the shoulder looks lately. This yellow off the shoulder ruffle midi dress from ASOS is just perfect for Spring! I love the color of the dress and ruffle detailing on the dress. It’s made of a super soft woven fabric and this dress is one of my favorite vacay dresses I wore during my trip to Charleston a couple of weeks.

I’ve also been a big fan of neutral accessories and my spring/summer go-to bag is this versatile grey cross body bag from DSW. It works with a variety of looks and is perfect for traveling! Also, let’s talk about my teal tassel earrings for a minute. They are from H&M and are super pretty. These are definitely one of my favorite statement earrings this Spring and Summer!
Have a great week ahead, ladies!

Turmeric ginger latte (Golden milk)

Hi everyone!

Have you ever had a turmeric latte? A dash of cinnamon, honey, black pepper and spice is the perfect combo for a snowy New England morning!
Like many trends, the turmeric latte may seem to have come out of nowhere. But it has been brewing for a while.

Turmeric latte has become my new favorite drink lately, because I love how soothing it is for the body, and how good it makes me feel. It’s laced with anti-inflammatory spices such as cinnamon and turmeric, they are as delicious as they are nourishing. For all those who haven’t tried turmeric lattes yet, I advise you to try it right away. You’ll surely fall in love. Here’s a simple recipe you can try at home.

Ingredients:

• 2 cups unsweetened almond milk or any milk of your choice
• 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric
• 2 teaspoons of honey (or maple syrup )
• 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
• ¼ teaspoon of cardamom powder
• a small pinch of ginger powder
• a small pinch of gound pepper (Pepper is said to increase the absorption of turmeric. You can also play around with additional flavors. Vanilla, and a tea spoon of coconut oil are great additions as well.)

Procedure:

1. Add the almond milk to a small pot and heat on low temperature.
2. Add the turmeric, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, ginger powder, raw honey or maple syrup, and pepper and stir frequently for about 6-10 minutes until the milk is warm, but not boiling.
3. Turn off the heat and strain the milk using a strainer.
4. Froth the top of the milk for a few seconds with a milk frother. Or you can also transfer the entire mixture into a blender and whizz for a minute or two for a creamy frothy consistency.
5. Sprinkle with cinnamon powder/star of anise (optional) and serve.

 

Bow tie ruffle crop top..

Happy Monday, everyone!
It’s officially March, which means Spring is right around the corner. I am so looking forward to the spring season, because this season it’s all about baring your shoulders – off-shoulder is the key-item! I found this bright red off the shoulder crop top and I knew it would make a perfect vacay outfit. I love the fitted shape of the top and how it hugs your body in a flattering way. This is probably the simplest and one of my favorite looks I’ve put together during my stay in Charleston.

I also finally got the chance to wear these Zara flats that I bought for myself a while ago. I’ve been eyeing them for so long that I decided to finally treat myself and give in to these beauties. I am surprised at how comfortable they are! Charleston is a walking city and I roamed almost all day in these beauties. I’ve paired this top with my super skinny denim and my favorite Gucci bag for breezy spring style outfit.

 

We also stopped by the famous Sugar bake shop during our trip.
This was on our bucket list of places to visit and sweet treats to eat when coming to Charleston and boy are we happy we did!! It is one of the cutest little bakery in Charleston! We ordered cupcakes and sweet tea and they were both delicious. The service was quick and friendly, definitely worth a stop if you’ve got a sweet tooth!

Charleston- favorite eateries and coffee shops.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

We spent this past weekend in Charleston, and it was one of the most perfect weekends I’ve had in a long time! Charleston is seriously beautiful. Every street and every house is amazing. I don’t know how you can come to Charleston and not fall in love or say, “Babe, we have to move here!” I think I have told that to my husband over and over again. You must visit to say the least. Just take it in and enjoy! And make sure you go with empty bellies because you will literally eat your way through Charleston. The food is just amazing. Here are some of my favorite eateries and coffee shops.

Black Tap Coffee

We actually came here a couple of times during our stay, and their lavender latte and almond croissant are a must-try! Not to mention the Banana Nutella turn over. So so yum. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff are very friendly. Would be my local if I lived in Charleston. This coffee is literally the best I have ever tasted.

The Rise

Stopped in for a quick latte here. It is gorgeous inside with marble counter tops, white tile floors and a big window with sun shining in. We tried the vanilla latte and it was amazing. If you are visiting Charleston make this place a stop!

Café Framboise

Cafe Framboise is a little gem, tucked away on Market Street. When walking on Market Street, look for the raspberry (framboise) colored walls inside this charming little French cafe. It’s just so pretty. We had a great quick late lunch here after just arriving in Charleston. Their chicken paninis were fantastic. Their vanilla latte and pastries were amazing as well. Highly recommended.

Poogan’s porch

 

Everyone I know raves about this place and yes it was great. My husband and I both agreed that this was the best meal we have ever had in Charleston. Poogan’s Porch serves traditional, southern food and you definitely need to try their Chicken sandwich, sweet potato fries and my absolute favorite pimento cheese fritters! I loved the ambiance too. They have a gorgeous patio and balcony seating as well.

Belgian gelato

If you are wandering downtown in Charleston near the waterfront, Belgian Gelato is in the perfect location. We both got the Vanilla gelato on a waffle cone. Portions vs. prices were decent, and the single scoop serving is very generous. Definitely worth a trip (or two!) when you’re visiting Charleston. It’s a small store front with very limited seats, but walk over to the Waterfront park and enjoy the scenery and fountains while indulging your taste buds.

Jeni’s gelato

If you’re looking to treat yourself with ice-cream you can’t get just anywhere then Jeni’s is the stop for you. They offer some unique flavors and a wide variety of ice creams. We sampled three of them and they were all phenomenal. I ended up choosing the wild berry lavender and sweet cream. Natural ingredients, cool store design and very friendly staff, make this a not to miss stop in Charleston.

Coming to my outfit- I love pretty much any clothing that’s blue and white… so I’m over the moon for this blue and white cold shoulder  lantern sleeve top. I love  the ruffle, the cold shoulders, everything about it. I paired it with white denim leggings that I got from Express and grey wedges from DSW which are absolute spring must-haves.

I will be sharing some of my favorite places to visit in Charleston in my next post. Have a great week ahead, loves!
