American Pride * Stylo 192♥

American pride unites all Americans holding the country together and always trying to make it better.

Even though I was not born and/or raised in the United States my father inculcated my brother and I a deep love and respect for this country, so much that I celebrate the 4th of July with a lot of pride and joy.

I decided to create my 4th of July Stylo a week ahead in order to give you an idea on what to wear on that special day.

I chose the classic Red, White and Blue combo.

I bought this white dress a few weeks ago, and I was saving it for my nephew’s Baptism, but I couldn’t resist wearing it now.  :roll:

I love the flattering flare design as well as its flowy fabric. It is super retro with a modern chic accent, and you can dress it down or dress it up!

As you can see in the pics, I am wearing the dress with flat sandals as well as with heeled sandals, and I honestly love both looks! It’s all going to depend on my kind of mood and also where I am heading to.

I chose to wear my jewelry in royal blue and I added this gorgeous red satchel my mom gave me.  😉

Regarding the Makeup, I combined blue eyeshadows paired with an eye-catching red lipstick. I made sure the eye makeup was soft and subtle, so the whole makeup wouldn’t look exaggerated.

Strapless Colorblock Maxi Dress *Stylo 191♥

Strapless clothes are not really my favorite, but this dress made me change my mind.

I am a little iffy when it comes to wearing strapless clothes, because I feel my arms are too big and I don’t have enough bust, but this dress made my change my mind, because it has an elastic lightly padded bustline and a fabric that is thick enough to cover certain imperfections that I don’t like revealing.

It also features an empire waist which helps camouflage my rolls.  😆  😆  😆

I also love the colorblock trend, because it makes the outfit look very trendy and eye-catching. I think the black and white paired with the blurred aztec print make a great a combination!

I decided to pair my dress with white rhinestoned flat sandals, along with a mint green crossbody bag, in order to create contrast.

To add a bit of drama to the look, I decided to emphasize my eyes creating a dramatic eye makeup, but softening it with nude lips.

This is definitely a very simple Summer look, yet very eye-catching and elegant, and it can be very easy to create!

Bright Colors With Leopard Print * Stylo 190♥

Bright colors are perfect for Summer! I love pairing different bright colors all in one outfit, just like I did for this Stylo.

I decided to combine royal blue with bright yellow and mint green, adding leopard print leggings.

I usually don’t wear leopard print in the summertime, but I wanted to wear these pair of leggings because they are so comfortable and I was looking for a comfy outfit to wear, being that I was going to PA and I had to drive for an hour and a half.

Regarding the Makeup, I chose to pair lavender eyeshadows with a peachy lipstick. It is a very subtle makeup, perfect for a summery afternoon.

I also chose to wear minimal gold accessories being that the leopard print leggings were already saying too much.

I think this is a nice way to incorporate animal print to a summer look!  😉

Bright Yellow * Stylo 189♥

Bright Yellow is definitely in my wardrobe this Summer!

I was never into yellow before, but somehow, all of a sudden, I am big time!

Same thing happened with fringe! I am now inexplicably into fringe…so what a great surprise when I found this lace top with fringe at H&M!

I think yellow is the perfect color for Summer, and I loved how the whole look came out, by pairing it with other summery colors like mint green and pink.

I had to run errands and was going shopping on early afternoon Saturday, then I was going to go out to dinner. I knew I wasn’t going to have time to change clothes, so I came up with this Stylo, where I was able to change it up a little bit.

Since I needed a comfy and practical outfit, I chose to wear loafers and a hat, as well as a shopper bag where I could fit all of my coupons and offers. 😉 😉 😉

I matched the shoes with the hat, by wearing both in a natural color, and wore my black shopper bag to add depth.

Then to go out to dinner, all I did was take off the hat; replace my loafers for my fave pair of zebra pumps; add a mint green statement necklace and retouch my lipstick Pink Pigeon from MAC, of course!

I loved the whole idea of creating two outfits in one…I think I am going to do this more often.  😉

Blue Orange Combo * Stylo 188♥

A Blue Orange combination is super summery, energetic and definitely very eye-catching.

Comfy looks have become my favorites for Summer. I am loving creating casual summer outfits that are perfect for basically any day outing, or even an evening casual look.

I wore this outfit on Saturday, but slightly different during the day. I had an appointment with a client to go shopping all day, so I wore loafers and a bigger bag. Then after that, I went to dinner and added these minty blue pumps and orange clutch. And of course I added my MAC lipstick: Morange.

I wanted to add different shades of blue, from my jeans to shoes and even my nails.

I also added different shades of orange, like my colorblock shirt, my clutch and lipstick.

I truly love pairing loose fit tops with skinny jeans. I believe they are the perfect summer casual combination.
