I had a lovely weekend and hope you all had one too! I spent my entire Sunday morning purging my closet and clearing out an entire room that was filled with products, and tons of clothes. This cleaning out was way overdue and much needed. Honestly, it should’ve been done in the beginning of Spring, but I never got around to it. So now, I’m starting this week with a huge to do list, but excited that it’s a new week with new opportunities. What are you guys up to lately? Remember when I mentioned Giti Online, the new online boutique I recently discovered and was loving so many pieces? Well, this is another romper that I loved from their website and got tons of compliments, plus it has pockets! Love everything a little more when they have pockets. The print is my fave too. I think the contrast between the navy blue and the nude is perfection and makes my skin look so tan.
Thanks for stoping by and wish you all a lovely week!
Today’s post is all about this look since it’s one of my new favorite jumpsuits! It’s sexy with vibrant and fun details. I’m truly obsessed with the fact that it fits me a little high waisted. I’m 5’9 so for items to fit me high waist is always a little miracle. I wore it to Key West and was still perfect for their weather because it’s very light weight. I picked this one up from Giti Online. They have the cutest andtrendiest clothes for every occasion. I love it! If I’m in need of an outfit, I know I can find it there. This top and this one are few that I’m coveting from their site. I finished this look with some of my favorite pieces like my newest white watch that you’re probably tired of seeing it since it’s on all of my IG photos. And this gorgeous Jemma wallet, which let me tell you, it’s perfect for traveling! It’s perfect to throw it in your bag as a wallet by day, a clutch or hands-free cross-body by night — just add the adjustable chain and voila, you’re ready to go. It’s a win win! Read More…

Hey fancy friends!
Last weekend I headed to Key West for our #TripleSmash best-friends annual trip (no new news for those that follow me on my social media platforms @afancyaffair). Yearly, my best friends and I pack up our cutest & trendiest clothes and travel usually to a tropical destination, either with our significant others or make it an all girls trip. This time we went with our hubbies and of course, I took Penelope. We need at least one of these trips a year. Our lives are so busy that a weekend to relax, spend QT, recharge and catch up is always a MUST.
The three of us have been in each other’s lives since high school and no matter where home is for us or where life has taken us, our annual trip is the first thing we jot down on our calendars. We look forward to the trip all year long and once the trip is coming to an end, we always wish it was a tad longer. This year the destination was Key West. It was the same location as two years ago, but it’s always a new experience and really the only place you can kick back, relax, and go dancing wearing flip flops and it’s totally acceptable. For those that don’t know, Key West mile marker 0 is only 3.5 hours away from Miami. So we packed up the car that Friday evening and took off! We made a quick detour at Cracker Barrel and ate breakfast for dinner, which is totally ok with me, since breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I love their homemade warm syrup over french toast. Yes, I started my trip already eating bad, but I’m the type that would rather eat everything in sight and work out my happy little butt at the gym after.
Michael and I love road trips, (Just kidding! I do, he’s not that into it.) so comfort not only is key, but a MUST if I don’t want to hear complaints the entire 3.5 hours… lol! And of course we brought little #FancyP. A trip wouldn’t be a succesful trip without her. She was loving every second of it! Being in a car for a few hours requires a good playlist, yummy snacks & candy, comfy clothes, lots of leg space and obviously a sunroof to see shooting stars. So renting out the new Toyota Corolla was the perfect fit for this trip! My favorite feature in our car was the touch screen panel which made it so easy to pair up my phone and swap music quickly. I also loved that it was great on gas. We filled up our the tank once with only $28 dollars. Amazing huh?
We stayed at this really cute hotel, did a whole lot of nothing, but hangout by the pool and relax! Everyone headed back home after brunch on Sunday and Michael and I stayed back to enjoy a little more of this gorgeous and fun island. And of course we couldn’t go back till we had some Sloppy Joe’s and an original key lime pie. Oh, what a great way to end our trip!
I always joke about wanting to be a mermaid, but I’m kinda serious! I’m a tropical girl and always dreaming of tropical getaways, warmer weather, sunny days, sandy toes, salty hair & crave the smell of the ocean. I’m not too fond of the open ocean so I’m convinced I wouldn’t be a great mermaid, but a girl can dream right? Even though I love the ocean I also have so much respect for it. I love watching it from the boat, fishing is my jam and running my hands through the water while the boat drives away is my fave. Here’s a fun fact about me! My biggest fear is to get pinched by a crab… I’m dead serious, I hate those crawly little guys. I can spot those little suckers from miles away and when I do, it’s over! I become totally paranoid.
Now, let’s chat about this cute outfit! I’ve been dying to get my hands on a cute denim skirt. I find them so cute and fun for summer. However, I also haven’t worn anything that low cut in a long time so when I tried these on, I was little hesitant. I’m not a fan of showing my bellybutton, however, because I’m so tall, it’s kind of hard to hide. So anything high waist is usually a go for me. This skirt is totally the opposite, it reminds me of my high school days when I used to wear a ton of Brazilian cut jeans. They were the teeny weeny low cut jeans. Those were put to rest a long time ago and I wasn’t mad about it. This skirt, although low cut, is pretty versatile. I’ve worn it with tees and sneakers, with a lace top and wedges and the last with this Maggie Ivory strappy crop top I picked up at Tobi, which is also available in red, black and sage. By the way, if you haven’t shopped this website, you’re missing out on the cutest things! They have such cute curated collections of summer must haves, latest trends, and basics at such good prices. I’ve scored the cutest things on here and have a cart full.
Today’s #FancyHairFriday tutorial is in honor of 4th of July! So bring out your cute bandanas or headbands and lets get this party started! I created three hair styles for all of those traveling rocking the salty hair and mermaid locks! Which one is your favorite hair style? Leave it in the comments below.
I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial. Thanks for watching.
Bold ruffles, stripes and embroidery are all the craze this season and I’m all over it. These trends are a major hit among fashion girls, magazines, runways and yeah, they can sometimes not be the most flattering on everyone’s figure. However, today I’m going to share a few tips on how to work around it and make it work for you. Now that I own my own boutique I hear these comments from so many girls and here’s what I have to say!
Choose vertical stripes to lengthen your physique
Opt for the ruffles in the areas that you either want to accentuate or hide. Examples, arms or bum area.
Less is more, I think. I only choose items that are embroidered in areas that I don’t mind people looking at.
Now go shopping and keep these quick tips in mind.
For today’s #FancyHairFriday I have created this messy twist ponytail. This is a perfect go-to hairstyle for those days your hair is a little dirty, but either you don’t have the time to wash or going to the beach and pool. I sprayed a little bit of Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo and Voila! Read More…
A very special thanks to Simply Stylist and Coppertone for sponsoring such an amazing event and for the generous goody bag. Loved all the products and can’t wait to share some with my readers. #Sponsored #AD #Advertisement
Hey fancy friends!
A few weekends ago there was a lot of buzz about the Simply Stylist Miami event at the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami Beach with the new Coppertone Whipped lotion. Oh Em Gee… this formula is soooooo good and goes on so smooth.
The event was fun. We got to really connect and mingle with some of our favorite internet friends as the sun was out and so was every single cool blogger. Everyone gathered at the garden area and seemed to be having a blast while enjoying all the fun things to do under the tents. I got to get a mani by the LVX team and sipped on champagne and on delicious coffee while applying and learning about the importance of applying SPF.
According to SCF, sun damage is cumulative. Did you know about 23 percent of lifetime exposure occurs by age 18. No wonder when I turned thirty I felt my skin had changed so much. If only I knew the things I know now back then. Where were all these fun learning events at? Lol…
For today’s #FancyHairFriday I have created this really cute bend to my hair, leaving the bottom extremely straight and knotted the back so it wouldn’t have such a basic half up/half down look. Read More…
Did you have a nice long weekend? Michael and I had a chance to get away to Bimini for the weekend and Oh Em Gee, we had a blast. Didn’t realize how badly we needed to get away for a few days and recharge. I can’t wait to share the 10000 million photos we took at that beautiful Bahamian Island, but in the meantime you can get a sneak peek in my Instagram (@afancyaffair). Now, let’s talk about this adorable look I have going on. I have been really enjoying the whole stripe trend this season, the blue hues and everything in between. And even though I love to finalize my looks with gold jewelry, I’ve been gravitating towards silver a little more. So when searching for the right pieces, I found Touchstone Crystal, which offers a stunning jewelry collection, with each piece sparkling in Swarovski crystals. Cool right? I wanted to pick out a few pieces that can be worn on the daily and dressed up or down. I love a statement piece, but love daintier pieces even more. The necklace that I have on can be worn as a lariat or as a choker in the front and let the long piece hang in the back for those open back tops. The fact that the chain is so thin gives a sex appeal without being too much. After looking into Touchstone Crystal, I found out that you can be your own boss and become a sales rep for this brand, or host a party at home for your girlfriends and earn hundreds of dollars in free jewelry by hosting a Touchstone Crystal party. Cool right?
What have you guys been up to this season trend wise? Would love to hear from you on the comments down below.
