Florida Trip | Part V

Oh, life's a beach. Summer calls for the beach at least once, right!? Tennessee is landlocked; the only thing closest to the beach is the lake. And the lake is gross. So, here I am at Daytona!

Grandma Shoes

 Mules. And not the donkey lookin' kind either. For the longest time, I kind of hated these. I thought they were ugly, but then...I gave in. If you style it wrong, these little thangs can come off as g-ma style and not so chic. They are probably the toughest shoes I have when it comes to putting outfits together, but it is also one of the top spring/summer trends that I love.

Florida Trip | Part IV

 Other than wearing dresses to beat the humidity and heat, rompers are a great choice. Especially open back ones! Easy to style because all you have to do is choose shoes.

Also, if it looks like I'm in the middle of no where on a sand road, it's because I am! I visited my grandparents farm and as much as I love being out there and experiencing the quiet life, it kind of sucks not being able to reach out with wifi and service. So kudos to people who love living out in the country because I'm not sure if I could do it all my life. I sure do love the asian foodies they make me! Since I'm a vegetarian, they know I go crazy over anything organic and since that's what their farm is made of, they made me so many dishes, I was just about stuffed the whole day.

Florida Trip | Part III

 The whole trip was kickass, but this may have been the highlight. C'mon. Disney for July 4th!? Fireworks and Mickey carmel apples and ice cream. How much more awesomeness could you ask for in a day? Since it was the 4th of July, I went sorta patriotic for the occasion. All white, once again, with the red Minnie snapback and I topped it off with a flag pin, that way the blue was still part of my outfit (which they were just giving out).

The Birds Are Chirping

 What is this? Sharena is wearing watercolor print? Yah, dude. I am. I decided to step out of my black and white box and throw on some color in different shades of bird. Adding on to more color, I brought out my blue minimal sandals. Of which, I got for only $20 at a Zara sale! Those Zara sales kill me every time (like NOW; cause there's currently one). 

I got the opportunity to go to a media event presented by Arlene Goldstein, Belk VP of Fashion Direction! She's such a nice and sweet lady. It's always a pleasure meeting people in the fashion industry nationally along with locally. She gave us a preview of what to expect in the fall. My favorite that I completely agree on is 'complex simplicity'. Basically, it screams out Alexander Wang because he does those classic pieces with a twist. You got to look for those little details, ya feel. 

'The look is in the mix."
