Hello there!
Sorry I went MIA for quite some time but my dad came to visit me and then I took some family/vacation time.I am happy to finally be back bringing you a very beachy post! This summer I think I have visited the beach more times than ever before, and that explains my dark tan hehe.

Comfy dresses are the kind of garment that I enjoy wearing during the summer, so when Eshakti contacted me to do a review on their line I couldn't pass it up. Not only do they have plenty of options, but they offer customization! How great it is to get your clothes made in your size and style?


This little number is very lightweight and well made. However, the fabric is not suitable for a 
very hot-humid day since the fabric is not as breathable. Still, I love it and for sure will be wearing it regularly once fall decides to come.

When I put this dress on, I knew I wanted to pair it with my recently acquired  jewelry pieces from Soulmakes. Cowrie shells, turquoise nuggets, and feather touches are just the perfect combination. I am obsessed with their stuff!


Even though summer has been great so far I am truly ready for fall. Who's with me?
But until then, I'll keep living the beach life...

Recaptured



Today I will be taking you down memory lane. I decided to put together some of my favorite outfit posts. I have been blogging for years now and it's kind of cool to see how my style has evolved.
As I was looking at the pictures, I noticed how different they all look but that's totally fine.
When I started to incorporate the fashion aspect on this blog, I knew I wanted to make it always interesting and different and my hubby and I been working pretty hard on making that happen!

Blogging has become a way to go on road trips. So whenever we set a date to shoot, it's exciting, because most of the time we try to go to a new place. To me, it's all about finding that place that can give life to the outfit, if that makes sense.


I hope you enjoy this post as we
 recaptured some of those moments!
Happy Friday
xoxo

Jewels Struck

The other day I was thinking about the way I dress, and I came to realize that I do have some sort of an outfit that I always gravitate to. That one that is easy to throw on and I feel super comfortable in.
I'm talking about tunics! For as long as I remember, these have been a garment that I love. They are comfy, flowy, and can be worn in different ways so it's the kind of item that is very useful to have in the closet.

This Harlow Tee from Gypsan it's so awesome! It's very similar to the Free People wonder woman tunic, but what I love the most about this one is the fact that is short sleeved, which makes it perfect for summer time.
 I have been using it with shorts, as a swim suit cover up, and with long pants as you can see in this post.

Now let's talk about these jewels shall we?
Through Instagram, I have found so many cool Etsy stores that offer one of a kind jewelry and that is right up my alley.
The first one I want to share with you guys is Victory Jewelry. The necklace I am wearing is made with Freshwater pearls,cowrie shells, and vintage kuchi coins finished off with deerskin leather. And the bracelet is a little different featuring some brass colored beads along with the others mentioned above. Aren't they gorgeous?

 Both of these pieces are adjustable so you can wear the necklace long or short and the bracelet can turn into an anklet. You guys know I will be living in these! I have been following Athena (owner of the shop) for a while now and her artisan work is top notch!

Another treasured store is Carly Marly designs.
Her pieces are colorful and super fun!This tribal wrap is such a cool piece! It's another versatile piece since you can use it as a necklace or anklet. The leaf closures are my fave detail from it, it gives it a very whimsy feel.

I highly recommend you guys pay a visit to their stores!

Have a great week!
