Hi Friends!!

After a long week of glowy skin, salty hair and sandy toes, I’m happy to announce that I’m back in the sunshine state and after going straight into Miami Swim Week, things are some what back to normal. Even though I’m slowly adapting to reality, my Bimini trip was absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to share it all with you guys in the upcoming posts. In the meantime, you will just have to follow along A Fancy Affair on Instagram to get little sneak peeks of that amazing turquoise water and miles of sands. The best way to get my week started is by attending my favorite service at Vous Church, no exaggeration! And even though I always opt to wear denim and a more casual look, I decided to show off the only souvenir I brought back from Bimini and it’s my tanned legs. You guys, prior to my trip I was so pale it was embarrassing. Usually this time of year, I’m rocking the nicest color, but haven’t had much time to head out to the beach, sadly to admit, since we are surrounded by the ocean. Gladly, those days are behind me. I paired this gorgeous peach lace dress that I picked up during the Zara sale a few weeks ago with my newest and most fun jewelry from Tous. The Face collection has to be the cutest, most fun and versatile collection I own by Tous. The idea that you can adjust each piece goes to show how versatile it is! You all know how much I love easy pieces that can be worn everyday. Each necklace is sold separately, but once you master the layering method, the sky is the limit.  I even wrapped two of the necklaces on my wrist to stack up with the rest of the bracelets and one of the necklaces, I opted to wear as a choker. Isn’t that so neat?!

Hey friends! Hope you’re all having an amazing week so far!  Currently, I’m in Bimini, Bahamas visiting this gorgeous island, but can’t wait to share an outing I had last week. Michael and I visited the new Downtown Doral area and what they are doing there is amazing! We were passing by the area late Sunday afternoon and wanted to grab some drinks. Before we knew it, we were having a delicious Peruvian cuisine dinner at Pisco y Nazca Cheviche restaurant. The food was not only so Instagram-esque, but equally oh’ so good! Of course, I shared the photo on my social media platforms (see it here @AFancyAffair). The food, service and ambience were amazing. The Downtown Doral area is so convenient for residents of the area because you get to enjoy amazing cuisines and delicious food at walking distance. We were planning out how our days would go everyday after work if we lived there. We even thought about how you don’t even need a car. Oh gosh! lol… But the area is that cute that it will have you thinking and dreaming about living there. We loved it! Can’t wait to go back and try the other restaurants around there.

Now, let’s talk about my outfit. I found the Downtown Doral area one day when in major need of a cute outfit. I googled nearby boutiques and found Cattiva Boutique. I’m very familiar with their Coral Gables location, so when I saw they had opened one in Doral, I had to go check it out. My favorite thing about this top is the bows details! Isn’t it so cute?!

Thank you so much for stopping by and till next time!

Michael and I love to stroll around town on Sundays after church and grab lunch with little P. Guys, she has gotten so cute and we are head over heels with her. She has the best personality and we catch ourselves talking about her even when she’s not around. Like a child! Seriously, we need to have babies already! lol… A quick update with our baby making tale, Michael and I have not quit on trying to conceive (we will always try!! lol…) However, we are taking a more relaxed approach with this whole thing. As most of you know, we have been trying for over 7 years now and after numerous procedures, doctor’s visits, doctors consultations, and surgeries, we have decided to just sit back for a bit on this journey and let God do his thing. Not that we tried to do it on our own before.  We truly believe that we will be parents one day, regardless of the way it happens. We are open to all ideas, maybe adoption, maybe IVF, maybe the good ol’natural way, whichever way God leads us to we will go. This process is extremely exhausting, not only physically, but also mentally and in all honesty, if it wasn’t for God’s love and peace I would have gone whacky by now.

Here are some bible verses which I stand by and find comfort in which have helped me through this journey!

Philippians 4:7

Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

Psalm 62:8 

Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.

Let me know if you guys want to hear more about my “baby making” journey. Don’t want to bore you, but if that’s something you want to hear about, I can definitely share!

Before I sign off you guys, how amazing is this Céline tie knot tote smooth leather bag? I’m obsessed! I have to say that it is a heavier bag, but space inside is limitless. While searching the web for a pre-loved Céline, I stumbled upon the Trendlee site. Oh you guys! They are legit amazing. You will fall in love with everything so be careful! Keep the credit cards away while surfing the site. They are so descriptive and really honest about the condition of the bags and what you should expect. They carry such a a huge variety of luxury brands and all are in amazing shape. Hop on over to their site and if you fall in love with something and would like to enjoy a 5% off your purchase, make sure to use coupon code “FancyAffair“. #yourewelcome 🙂

Last month Michael and I had the pleasure of attending the Veuve Clicquot  Polo Classic event in New York City. If you follow me on instagram and other social media platforms (@afancyaffair) you saw that we had a blast! It was a weekend full of events and we were elated to be attending and a part of it. It was so fun to reunite with my #ClicquotRich fam! Missed them since I last saw them in Paris for the #Clicquologist program (See more of my Paris trip here). So of course, the hubby had to dress the part and when Banana Republic reached out to dress him for this occasion, we couldn’t pass it up. How good does he look? We looked through their website to put an outfit together and we were overwhelmed with all the options they have and carry! Originally, I thought I was going to wear something pink so I wanted him to match me, but you all saw what I ended up wearing, it was totally the opposite side of the spectrum (see here). Regardless, he looked so handsome and like a stud! Love him!

Years ago, I gifted Michael the classic rose gold Daniel Wellington Sheffield 40mm watch and he loved it. We purchased an additional band  so he was enjoying both worlds (black and brown). However, these past few months he has been swooning over the latest style- the Dapper St Mawes 38mm with the blue dial and oh my! It is stunning!! These watches are so fine, chic, classic and a must have! They also make great gifts for your loved ones. Use coupon code “AFANCYAFFAIR” during check out to enjoy 15% off.

Thanks to Banana Republic for sponsoring this post and look.

Shining some major rays on my summer wardrobe one dress at a time with the help of this Alexis Monic dress . It is so stunning! It’s flowy, bouncy, flirty, totally fun and a showstopper. Take my word for it! This dress feels like a summer version of a maxi. Make sense? Not sure, but I will run with it. I adore the neckline and how it cuts in at the perfect spot. Can we take a moment to admire the ruffles on the side with the tassels hanging? Isn’t it adorable? I think it’s an added summer touch bonus!

By the way, for those that have asked about my lash extensions, I go to “Lash_Image” owned by a dear friend of mine in Miami. Maxi is AHMAZING! The process to get lash extensions can be lengthy and take anywhere from 1-2 hours. Maxi is quick, meticulous, a perfectionist and extremely detailed, yet time goes by so fast that you don’t even notice. If you live in the Miami-Orlando area, call her and she will make you feel like a human doll! Tell her I sent you for a discount.

Oh my! It’s official. Summer is here!!! Yay… The excitement is real. I’m doing shimmies of excitement over here. I love the long summer days, all the fun outings, the boat rides and the list could go on for everrrrr, and I think you get the drift. The heat is on! I love it all and aside from all the fun things, I love all the street fashion during this season. Yes, swimsuits is all we want to wear when the high double digits and even triple digits kick in, but it takes legit talent to be able to look put together when underneath it all you’re overheating. The scarf trend is one trend that I was really skeptical about.  Maybe because I think of one of my fave rappers, Tu Pac, but also because I had not found one that I loved, until I found this one at Koko & Palenki. It’s skinny, lightweight and so silky with a very breathable fabric and the print is just delicate, chic and very feminine- its totally me! When I saw it, it was a total game-changer. If you follow me on snap-chat and on IG, you probably spotted even Penelope wearing it. It’s that cute you guys! I decided to throw it on with this off-the-shoulder dress to add a cool element to what could have been a casual summer look.

What do you think about this trend?

Hi my fanciest friends!

I’m such a sucker for an all white look. I think it’s so crisp, chic and stylish! It is also one of those hues that accentuates every skin tone. I love a good LWD (little white dress), this one is so tailored and so feminine, but also comfortable #MajorKey. I could put on a dress or jeans and feel the same way, sexy, pretty, chic and feminine. And yeah, everyone is different and we all have different styles, body types, but comfort is everyone’s goal. So if that’s you, this dress is for you! I did pick this LWD at a local boutique, but I’ve seen similar styles hereherehere. So obsessed with this one and listed many more up top for you guys. Hope you like the cut off shoulder trend. I sure do!

Also, the Tous jewelry I am wearing on this post will be 30% off starting tomorrow for a 2 day Tous Friends & Fam Day ending on the 18th. Are you doing shimmies already? I am!! So run, don’t walk to any Tous store and enjoy up to 30% on many jewelry and accessories! There will be surprises, beauty experiences and gifts for everyone! So shop on!!

Summer is a few days away, (12 days to be exact!) and what better way to take on the heat than in a one-piece-wonder? This is a different look for me, right? I know… But every once in a while I like to change things up a bit and take a jump to the unexpected and add a powerful tone to my oh, so colorful daily hues. This black jumpsuit has the prettiest neck plunge in the front and a deep V on the back, which gives such sex appeal without overkill, while keeping it classy (that’s a must ladies!). I adore pieces like these, don’t you? A few days before heading out to NYC, my sweet husband Michael and I knew that we needed some time alone and I decided to wear this look to a date night and paired it with very dainty, nude and minimal pieces, making it chic as hell!

Hi frands!

I’m back from visiting my best friend in NYC and I must admit I had a great time. I did get to record bits and pieces and I will soon be sharing a NYC vlog on my Youtube channel, so stay tuned for that! But of course, first thing I had to do was pick up my little furry baby #FancyP and stop by one of my favorite coffee shops in the Gables for a cup of Joe at Pasion del Cielo. To this cute outing, I decided to dress appropriately to beat the Miami heat. These cute shorts are so feminine and sweet with the eyelet details perfect for the warmer days. So easy to style and the hem can be rolled up or down for a shorter look. I can also add a cute belt for a whole different look (versatility is my motto), and what’s more feminine chic than a cute peplum denim top? This one in particular is so light weight and a new fave of mine.

Banana Republic carries amazing pieces for fun days to date night and work chic. I know I can always walk in and trust to walk out with something because they cater to every age, every occasion and always with sophistication.

Today’s post is filled with peeking sunshine and bright rays! The weather is just lovely in Miami this time of year and wearing flowy, airy pieces is all I want. Michael and I had an event to attend which was an outside setting, so prior to heading out we shot this look. I wanted to document this gorgeous fun bright dress and share it with you. I think this is a perfect look for a wedding, baptism and even for an early date night look. The high low cut is perfectly structured to show off a little bit of your legs, yet leaving the rest to your imagination, creating such a gorgeous tail. I’m obsessed! As I look through my IG feed I realized that I’m such a color girl, I love bright and vivid tones. It makes me happy! What about you? Do you stick to a particular color palette or it’s a free for all in your closet? I want to know, so please share on the comments below! Read More…
