Me and Ashley from A Sassy Woman



After a long week I was happy to accept an invitation from Ashley to grab a bite to eat at one of her favorite restaurants, Silver Spoon Thai and Sushi.  I really loved the low-key ambiance of the restaurant and the food was good! I opted for the avocado egg rolls and Thai veggie noodles, yummy! 

The photo shoot after dinner was hilarious, natural light is a bloggers best friend. Two bloggers, two cameras and bad lighting makes for an interesting time, lol.  Make sure you check out Ashley's blog for more pictures.

Simply Chic







Instead of showing you guys my work outfit I wore today, which I loved but the pictures came out horribly, I opted for my after work casual look.  I did a quick switcharoo and threw on my jeans and wedges.  I have become such a tank top girl since living here in Miami.  I am always wearing these long and lean tanks from Target and throwing on a pair of jeans or shorts.



Adding the scarf and necklace took a simple tank and jeans from plain to chic.  The weather was perfect today for a light woven summer scarf.  I fought my urge to throw on a ring and bangles and kept my look simple and casual.

Blazing Hot



 Not sure what I was looking at but at least you get a side view of my shoes


*Sigh* my brief summer break is over, back to the books.  On a happier note my birthday is officially 30 days away, and my niece is due to arrive in 29 days!  Can't wait to meet her!  I need to do a post on all the cute clothes I have bought so far. 

I am pushing my luck wearing this blazer today.  I am so ready for cooler temperatures, I miss wearing scarves, blazers, tights and booties. Considering it's always freezing inside my office and even worse at school, I will be okay. 

I am also wearing my new "Fabulous" necklace; one of my co-workers just asked me if I really thought I was fabulous.  My answer "of course!” lol.

Weekend Wear: Fedora





So I decided to go the beach today and relax a little.  Unfortunately the beaches down here are being invaded by jelly fish, boo! I did get my feet wet a little before a jelly fish got too close for comfort.  I was still able to enjoy the beach and get take a few pics.  My trip ended early when I saw a couple engaging in sexual activities right out in the open, smh.  The sun wasn't even down, and there were kids around.  Maybe they weren't aware that the clothing optional beach was on the other side of the fence!

Fun Friday






I am sick! Summer colds are the worse.  I think my weekend will be filled with tea, Theraflu and Vicks.  Fall semester starts on Monday so I need to get it together before then.  Hope you guys have a great weekend.

More Stripes and More White





I love effortless outfits...I went to work super casual and comfy today.  I scored these really cute boat shoes from Old Navy last week for less than $20 and I had a coupon for 30%.  I really wanted them in red but they were sold out.  Once again I am wearing my white slim jeans, love these things! I am definitely getting a few more washes when Levis has another sale. 

I was wondering if the no white after Labor Day "rule" still applies? Good thing about living down here in Miami is it's always hot so we kind of do what we want, lol.  

Oh and I finally bought some colored skinny jeans, cobalt blue and azalea pink!  Both Jeimy and Maria spoke highly of the City Street brand from JcPenney, and for $20 I figured it couldn't hurt to give them a try.  They colors are so vibrant, I love it...however they will have to be taken in at the waist major gapping =(  I am still waiting on my red pair from Old Navy hopefully they will fit better.

BDIB: Arm Party







I love this challenge!  Me, Prissy and Inez just had a convo on twitter about accessorizing.  I know you shouldn't overdo it when it comes to accessories. However on most days you will find me wearing earrings, bracelets, a necklace and a ring! I know that sounds like a lot but I like it! 

So I decided to go back through my outfit posts and pull out some of my favorite arm candy pieces.  My current favorites are the colorful friendship bracelets, (first picture), that have been popping up everywhere.  The arm candy that gets worn the most are my three gold bangles, (last picture), my ex-husband gifted me from Dubai; he even had one engraved =) 

Make sure you check out the other ladies arm parties!

Feelin Blue


I am so proud of myself; I have been continuously adding color to my outfits.  Instead of going out and spending a lot of money I have been picking up items here and there at thrift stores.  I purchased 3 more blouses today at the goodwill for $15! My mom said to me today "you love that goodwill don't you", lol.  I sure do!  



I miss wearing scarves but it's clearly too hot to even think about wearing a scarf.  But I purchased this scarf two years ago from NY&Co. for $5 and never wore it, smh. I couldn't pass it up because it was so beautiful and my favorite color, blue. I picked up this royal blue skinny belt at Forever21 a couple weeks ago.  My blue bracelets are from H&M; picked those up over the 4th of July weekend.  So despite the heat I rocked my silk scarf.  

Planning my outfit around my accessories worked out great.

Color Blocking: Finally!





I finally found a color combination that was perfect for color blocking; I must say I am feeling quiet good wearing this outfit today!  If you follow me on twitter (@curveebeauty) then you know me, StyleChic360 and Gen321 all purchased the same knit pencil skirts during the Forever 21 yellow tag sale.  Instead of taking the safe route, typical black skirt, I figured I needed to try something new.   

There isn't much color in my closet so I hit the goodwill Saturday to find some nice tops specifically for color blocking.  I hit the jackpot, three blouses, for $17!  I can't wait to see how the other ladies style their skirts.  I just realized my entire outfit is less than $50, minus my hair, lol.  

I want to give a special thanks to all the ladies over at ChocolateBrides.com I read all of your nice compliments.  I joined the forum but I am not about to respond to posts for some reason.
