Happy Sunday, lovely friends!

I’m happy to report to you guys that I’m finally done packing for Minnesota! I’m really excited now and I cannot wait for Tuesday to get here already. Although I love my regular routine, I have to admit that I’m looking forward to some time away from work and everything else -everyone needs a little vacation from time to time, am I right?!

Anyhow, who doesn’t love a fabulous off-the-shoulder blouse for summer? This blue and white stripped blouse from Shein has quickly become my new favorite. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I always love me some bows, and the fact that this blouse has them on the cuffs is simply perfect. The amazing thing about this blouse is that it is currently on sale for only $13.99! I mean really, it doesn’t get any better than this, don’t you think?

I hope you guys like the post! Please feel free to leave your questions or comments in the section below. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week. See you guys with a new outfit soon.

Happy Monday, lovely friends! You guys, I can’t believe how fast this summer is going. Next week, the husband and I will be making a trip to Minnesota as one of his cousins is getting married. I’ve never been to Minnesota, so I’m actually very excited to go visit and spend some quality time with the family. That reminds me, I should really start packing soon… lol.

Anyway, one piece that I’ll be bringing to Minnesota is this lovely sleeveless peplum top from Romwe.  It’s perfect for summer, and you can totally dress it up or down because it’s so versatile! The best part about it is that it’s currently on sale for only $12.99 -yeah, you’re welcome!

Something else that’s coming with me to Minnesota are these fabulous Prada Sunglasses from Shop Ditto. If you guys love fabulous eyewear like me, consider signing up with them. It’s like Netflix for your face! I really love how you can rent unlimited designer sunglasses for only $24 a month. Consider using my code PEARLSANDPENS and receive your first month for free.

Hi beautiful friends and happy Wednesday!

So the past two weeks have been incredibly busy for me. And when I say incredibly busy, I really mean it! Between baking cupcakes, cake-pops, and making handmade decorations for a baby shower and later for a bridal shower, I feel like I’ve barely had time to breathe. If you follow me on Snapchat (pearlsnpinkpens), you probably saw some of my work. They may not have been all perfect, but they were all made with lots of love. I was even lucky enough to get compliments on my work, so I guess I did good and that made it all worth it.

So a little bit about these pictures – they were taken a couple of weeks ago when it was raining nonstop. Remember those rainy and gloomy days? I’m sure you guys do. It was only two weeks ago, but because of the rain it actually feels like it was last year, right? Anyway, I finally found the time to share these, and I think this is a perfect dress for this season.

Since the dress has some black details on the top, I decided to keep my jewelry and shoes black to match it. However, I wanted to do a little bit of color blocking with my bag for fun because who doesn’t like to have fun? I know I do!

Happy first day of May, beautiful friends!

You guys, it’s finally warm enough to wear dresses! I figured, if I’m going to be wearing a dress might as well go all out and do it girly girl style. This gorgeous dress from The Mint Julep Boutique got me at hello with the color and the bow detail in the back. From the minute I saw it I thought it would be perfect for some of the bridal showers and baby showers I have coming up this May.

The dress is truly a beautiful peach color so I feel like there are multiple ways to style it. For this look, I decided to pair it with colorful accessories because I wanted a playful yet stylish look to go with the warmer season.

Happy Friday Eve, lovely friends!

This month I celebrate 2 years since I started to work out daily. It’s changed my life in ways you can’t imagine! Working out daily isn’t easy, I won’t lie to you. It requires a great deal of commitment. But with a little determination, you can totally do it too.

Today I decided to show you guys how I wear my leggings from Albion Fit in two different ways. The first look is pretty obvious, I use when I go out for a run or do some yoga outdoors by a lake nearby. These leggings are seriously so comfortable! They stretch just enough so your legs don’t feel super tight and that’s so important for me because I like to feel like my legs are free to move, you know?

For my second look I decided to pair them up with my new Hunter Boots -courtesy of my husband, by the way. This outfit is perfect for those chilly, early morning walks. With April showers right around the corner, I can totally forecast a chance for this outfit to be repeated again.

I hope you guys like these post! Please feel free to leave your questions or comments in the section below. Until next time!

Hello, beautiful friends!

I know it’s been a while… but I’m so excited to share my first blog post of the year! I’m also delighted to share that I’m joining Burlington Stores in their 2016 Spring Campaign. I mean, when one of your absolute favorite stores asks if you can put together a spring inspired outfit you say yes, OF COURSE! How can I not?!

I’ve been a customer of Burlington for years now. It’s the one store that I keep coming back to because on top of having a wonderful selection of clothing, accessories and household items, everything is up to 65% off department store prices. Did I mention that’s everyday too? I can honestly say that this store has saved me hundreds of dollars throughout the years. Whether it is a gift for a friend, a house decor item or a new outfit, Burlington has been there to rescue me.

Take this outfit for example. My jacket retails for $139.00 at a regular department store. The Burlington price is only $39.99!  My blouse retails for $59.00 and I found it for $24.99. Let’s not forget about my shoes, retailing at $75.00 when I only paid $29.99! That’s about $178.03 in savings and I get to look and feel fabulous without the stress of spending so much in just one outfit. Each of these pieces are versatile too, I’m sure I’ll get a lot of outfits from each of these individually. I’ll show you guys just how in future posts, you guys stay tuned!

Pastel colors are always a great way to transition to a spring wardrobe. I picked these specific items because all of them say hello spring, get here already! Alright my darlings, this is all I have for you today. Let the countdown to spring 2016 begin!

Burlington Stores sponsored this blog post. The opinions and text are all mine. 

I’ll be back soon!

Summer: Hair gets lighter. Skin gets darker. Water gets warmer. Drinks get colder. Music gets louder. Nights get longer. Life gets better.” ~ Unknown 

Happy Monday, beautiful friends! Anyone else excited about Summer 2015? I know I am! I love being able to have outdoor BBQ’s, go out on little adventures, wear all my pretty shorts and skirts that only make sense to wear during summer, etc. There’s also something so awesome about being able to get a tan by just sitting out in the sun… I guess summer just helps me feel like I actually am alive. I really don’t mind the heat at all. I totally embrace it, I’m weird that way lol!

While I enjoy my outdoor time, I always try to protect my skin with the proper lotions and all the good stuff they sell for your skin. Today I’m very excited to introduce a boutique that has taken fashion to the next level: they have created sun protective clothing. How amazing is that?! Mott 50 pieces are very stylish pieces that are both comfortable and sun safe. This is one of two looks that I’ll be showing you guys how I styled them.

Striped clothing are pretty much mandatory during the summer, right? That’s one of the many reasons why I feel in love with this dress. It’s perfect for summer outings and it’s so fun that it allows you to dress it up (like I did) or dress it down with some flats. This is a look that I would wear to casual Fridays at work or a fun date with the husband.

Well my darlings, this is all I have for today. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead and I’ll be back with a new outfit, soon!
