Rainy Days, Stuck Inside….

With all of these gloomy days, I have spent my time stuck inside trying to find something to do. My main task:  organizing my clothes and shoes. But just because I was stuck inside does not mean that I don’t have my style game going!

On these rainy days, I usually like to bundle up and keep extra cozy. I am wearing a long sweater length dress with faux leather detailing. I paired a cranberry pair of cotton leggings, changing up the look, as well as added a black and white checkered scarf. Rain boots were a must, especially with my black Hunters. Accessories were kept limited with only a bracelet and studs.

A black sweater is a necessary staple piece, especially for this fall. This shirt is so comfy, but still has that “put together” look. The leggings add a nice untraditional flare, since all black would have just been boring. I also recommend investing in a pair of wellies! Whether they are Hunters or another brand, in this weather they are a must to keeping your feet dry!

On these rainy days, do not forget to dress fabulous, while still feeling comfortable!

Elle, you’ve done it again!

I have a new found respect for Elle magazine, and it starts with a “D.” Dance: to move rhythmically to music, typically following a set sequence of steps. It is something that I love, and I, myself, know the passion and feeling that one gets when connecting with the music and story of a dance. They recently released a spread with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, in which some of the performers showed off their skill in some of summer’s most desired trends and pieces.

Seeing this, I was blown away and captivated by the beauty of both the dancers and their bodies. I give major thumbs up and five million stars to Elle for using such a creative and amazing skill to show off these beautiful pieces of art. It’s about time we step away from the standing model and move our way towards a body with movement, poise, and grace.

Below are just a few of the photos and a link to the Elle magazine site where the entire spread can be viewed!

In Paradise…

A lot of you may have thought that I have been MIA lately, but trust me when I say that I am back! I was on a little vacay with my family in South Carolina and did not forget to blog! I was able to capture some of my fave outfits with some lovely scenery! Our first stop was Myrtle Beach where I was able to bask in the sun and get my well deserved tan! For dinner, I wanted a fun, yet casual outfit. With a cute pair of shorts and halter, I was able to feel a little boho while in my own paradise!

I am wearing a pair of pattern, light weight shorts with blues, creams, and black! The pattern is tribal and perfect for day or night! I paired a very flowey halter blouse with lace detailing that was semi cropped. The top created a boho feel to the entire outfit and perfect for a humid evening! The colors are great for summer, adding neutrals with a beautiful blue hue! I paired a simple pair of sandals and kept the rest of the look very plain, letting the shorts do the talking!

These shorts are the best trend to develop this summer! They are so comfy and light weight! The patterns dress up a boring old short and top look, making it chic and put together! Forever 21 is the place to buy these adorable pieces! Check them out!

So, wear the shorts! Don’t let the shorts wear you and always feel fabulous, even in the hottest of summer weather!

Beautycon!

This weekend was full of fun and surprises at Beautycon NYC! I had an absolute blast meeting my fave Youtube beauty gurus and seeing so many different vendors! Walking in, I was able to see the beautiful Whitney Port! Being so starstruck I could not believe it! She is even more tall and gorgeous in person! Inside, Tarte, Bare Minerals, American Apparel, and more had booths set up! Most of the products were discounted, which made me splurge!

I still cannot believe I met some of my fave gals including Carli Bybel and Meg of ciaobellaxo! Definitely check out their youtube channels!

This weekend taught me that being a fashion and beauty blogger is truly my passion, and I am so so blessed to be able to do it and have the support of all of you who read and keep up to date with it all! Hopefully a Youtube channel will be in my future, but  for now always keep up to date with me at Navy and Lace! I could not be more humble and thankful for the fantastic experience I had this weekend!! Below are some pics of the weekend! Enjoy!

Quote of the Day!

Quote of the day! Haven’t done one in a while! “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once!” Everything happens for a reason! Embrace the moment and live in the present. Don’t regret the things you do because you can do anything!
