{ Sweet summer time with The Gates Hotel South Beach }

This past weekend I got to spend my Saturday soaking up the sun with a delicious mango mojito on hand, toes in the water floating around in a huge tropical pineapple. If you follow me on my social media platforms (@AFancyAffair) this is no new news for you.

The weather couldn’t be more perfect and the mood was just right! I truly believe I was made for sunny days. Being sun kissed is my therapy. Legit, it just relaxes me and it really makes me smile from the inside out, happiness comes from the bottom of my heart. Read More…

{ huge summer try on haul video }

Hey fancy friends!

I was made for summer days! This is my favorite season of the year. Yeah, it’s a really hot and sometimes sticky and sweaty, but not gonna lie, I love it! I love all the vibrant colors, the happy vibes, the long days and all the fun pool, bbq and beach parties! And of course, all the shopping. For some reason, this season inspires me to shop. I feel inspired by all the colors, prints and cool trends that summer brings. I like the easy, breezy outfits. High slits, cropped tops, the showing of the legs and all the fun accessories. Summer is my jam! So I went to Forever 21, H&M, Target and also picked up a few things from my store Fancy Boutique and wanted to share it with you. I got sandals, accessories, athletic wear and vacation outfits that can be mixed matched for brunch or any day event to a fun night out. The best part is that they are all under $40 dollars outfits. Isn’t that great?  

Hope you enjoy this huge summer try on haul video!

 Thank you for stopping by and ill catch you on my next post!

{ meet my Mary Poppins bag! }

 

I’ve been on the go, go, go lately and this precious bag has been everywhere with me. Meet the POPPINS bag by JEMMA. This is the second bag I have from this brand (remember this post and this one?), I love their stuff! Named after Mary Poppins – POPPINS was inspired by the Mary Poppins’s Magic Bag (we all need one of those and now you can have it!) a bag that is versatile, practical and at the same time truly feminine with just the right amount of gold details. Side note: I loved that movie when I was little!! Anyone else? I’ve carried my black Poppins bag from job interviews, meetings, to showrooms to purchase new merchandise for my store to a weekend getaway! The smooth Italian leather allows the structure of the bag to maintain its shape no matter how stuffed it is, and only God knows how much stuff I put in my bag. I need to always have my desk planner, laptop, notebook, camera, make-up bag, water bottle, a few more necessities and the fact that the shape doesn’t change means the bag always looks and sits pretty. This bag is perfect for professional settings like meetings and interviews to a more casual setting like weekend getaways. Read More…

{ Cropped Sweaters }

 

 

 

Miamiiii it’s time to warm up! I can’t wait for the warmer sunny days, because I must say that this feels like the longest winter season we have had in a while. I know that many of you don’t consider 75 degrees cold weather, but it is for Miamians. Ha. ha! This look that I’m wearing here is one that I have been rocking either paired together (repeat offender) or separate. This cute tie up cropped sweater is a fave of mine and pairs well with skirts, pants and denim for a more casual look. Now let’s talk about these Steve Madden boots. Don’t they look like the Christian Louboutin So Kate boot version? Not sure if its the height of the heel or just the shape of the front of the boot, but I sure do feel very sexy wearing them!

{ Press Pause }

 

We all need a little break sometimes. Resting doesn’t mean you quit, it’s a gift to recharge your mind, body and soul!

A little before the holiday season started, sometime around November, I started to back away from social media and then took a full blown break. I’ve taken short breaks here and there, but this one was a long one. I needed it! This time, I was rarely posting and staying active. I needed a little time away to regroup, recharge and just sit still when I had a chance. Let’s be honest, sometimes we wake up and before we even get up from bed we already opened our social media platforms and bombarded our brains with thoughts and things. Believe it or not, I’m not the type to do that. I can go days without opening IG  and other platforms. But while creating content, you need to stay active and post and interact. This time I pressed pause on all the content and just enjoyed the moment knowing that I didn’t have to post anything. Read More…

{ Blossom your Look with Clarins}

 

Hey fancy friends! Its been a while since I last chatted with you on here about beauty products. It’s no secret that I absolutely love Clarins products and the brand (remember this post and this one?) Clarins is that brand that always releases new and improved products that are not only super on-trend, but amazing for your skin. Here are a few items that I’m testing out now and looking forward to using it this spring! The extra firming day and night creams are phenomenal. They have such a nice scent and consistency and super moisturizing. I also picked up the SOS primer in color  (01) Rose. It highlights the skin so nicely and its the perfect primer to give your skin an all around hint of glow. Read More…

{ Luxe Nudes Gift Guide }

 

Hi all,

Tis the season to give and if you’re like me, this season gets you in the mood to give and to buy. Yes, I admit! I love to shop for others, but I always get this itch to shop for myself and enjoy the holiday gift sets for myself as well. I go into a store and shop for everyone on my list and tend to always leave with something for me. I’m being very transparent so no judging, please! Ha ha… Since this happens every holiday season, I’ve learned to prepare my bank account in advance. Here are a few luxe things that I’ve been coveting all year long and may take the plunge and gift myself a little something. You know, a gift to me, from me. The gift guide above includes all the luxe nudes that are perfect for MYself, yourself, your mon, mother-in-law, maybe a sister or girlfriend. I recently found this sequin jacket from Misook and think it might be perfect for a holiday party. If you love it as much as I do, use coupon code “MSK2491″ during checkout to enjoy 25% off. Happy shopping!

{ Fall “IT” hat }

 

 

 

Baker hat, cabby hat, newsboy hat… regardless the name, it is the “IT” fall hat. Every blogger, designer and influencer is rocking the “IT” hat. It has a cute puffed crown and a partially elasticized back which fits pretty much everyone while keeping you warm. I’m obsessed with this accessory and think everyone should be too. You can find them pretty much at every store and in every type of material; velvet, corduroy, leather, pleather, fur, wool and the options are endless. If you’re like me and love to play with trends, then you must get yourself one.
