summer look

Summer Look: Crispy white eyelet top…



Hello beautiful souls! Hope your week is going amazing and that you find yourselves feeling joyful and revitalized. As for myself I can say that my week is going great! I have been getting a lot done and enjoying the present moment more and more every day.  Today I wanted to show you a white top I received last week from Rafaella Sportwear and that I am loving very much.  White is my favorite color to wear during the mega hot summers here in Orlando and even though I don’t enjoy the fact that white garments show dirt and stains more easily, wearing this crispy and super fresh color keeps me feeling cooler and at the same time makes me look very chic. And what a better way to wear white than sporting this super cute Rafaella eyelet top that pretty much can take me from a girl’s lunch outing to a day at the park? FYI, this Rafaella top is super comfortable and the material is of superb quality.  I will definitively be taking this one with me to my upcoming vacation trip (I seriously can’t wait! Can you tell???).  I know I have been mentioning this trip for the longest time and you may already be very tired from hearing about it but we are taking my daughter Alexandra to Europe as her high school graduation gift and we are all super excited about it.  She graduated last year but the trip was actually postponed to this summer. Speaking about summer, I hope yours is going amazing and that you are getting to enjoy the wonderful things it has to offer.  From sunny warm days to less traffic in the mornings due to kids being off from school (yay!), I am very thankful for this season and I am enjoying every minute of it.  May your days be filled with beautiful moments and life changing experiences and remember that it is in the smallest things that we find true pure joy and happiness. Have a blessed life!

¡Hola bellas almas! Espero que la semana les vaya de maravilla y que se encuentren sintiendo muy alegres y revitalizados. De mí les puedo decir que gracias a Dios mi semana vá de maravilla. He logrado hacer mucho y disfrutar del el momento presente cada día más. Hoy quiero enseñarláes una camisa blanca que recibí la semana pasada de la marca Rafaella Sportwear que me fascina mucho. Blanco es el color que más me agrada llevar durante los mega calientes veranos que pasamos aquí en Orlando y a pesar de que no disfruto de el hecho de que la ropa blanca enseña más el sucio y las manchas, el llevar este crujiente y muy fresco color me ayuda a sentirme menos acalurada y también super chic. Y, ¿que mejor manera de llevar el color blanco que llevando esta linda camisa Rafaella de tejido “eyelet” que fácilmente me podría llevar de una sálida a almozar con mis amigas a un pasadía en el parque? También quiero informarles que esta camisa Rafaella es super cómoda y el material es de muy buena calidad. Definitivamente la estaré llevando conmigo en mis próximo viaje de vacaciones (¡En serio que no puedo esperar que yá llegue el día!). Sé que llevo mencionando estas vacaciones desde hace yá un tiempo y ustedes deben estar cansados de leer lo mismo pero es que vamos a llevar a Europa a mi niña, Alexandra de regalo de graduación y estamos super emocionados. Ella se graduó el año pasado pero el viaje se pospuso para este verano.   Y hablando de el verano, espero que el de ustedes esté yendo de maravilla y que se encuentren disfrutando de todas las cosas maravillosas que el mismo ofrece. Desde días soleados y muy cálidos a mañanas con menos tráfico por los niños estar fuera de la escuela, me siento muy agradecida por la temporada y me encuentro disfrutando de cada minuto de ella. Que sus dias sean unos llenos de momentos hermosos y experiencias inolvidables y recuerden que es en las cosas pequeñas donde muchas veces logramos encontrar felicidad y alegría verdadera. ¡Que tengan todos una bendecida vida!

The modified boho look…





Today, is a Bohemian day for me.  Not only have I always been drawn by the easy going and free spirited feel of the boho style but I will admit that in a very special way, I do have appreciation for the bohemian cultural mindset and  lifestyle.  Even though their expression of freedom was a little radical at times, the message bohemians tried to get across was very clear and simple;  be and express who you really are and don’t let others tell you how to live your life.   If you take away the radical aspect of the concept and apply to your daily life the essence of the message  they wanted to convey, you will soon find out that it actually makes a lot of sense.  Just think about it for a second  and you will see:-)  So, to celebrate the “no-worries” attitude that bohemians lived by and that in my opinion, could save us from a lot of unnecessary stress and many body and mind imbalances l chose to create a “modified” version of the relaxed and cool boho look.  In order to keep the experience stress-free and easy, I chose to work with pieces I already owned so no shopping was required.  And why a modified boho look?   Because to enhance the boho style of the dress I used a cowboy hat instead of the typical “floppy”.  To accentuate the waist and pull off the free-spirited feel I wanted to attain, I added a wide leather belt and a multi-layered long necklace I bought many years ago.  The open-toed gladiator style booties are the “in-between”, American Old West and the Boho Chic Era.  The roomy and easy going bag gives you the comfort and convenience to take with you anything needed and go anywhere.  So dear friends, let the free spirited energy of self love and appreciation take its course, allowing us to live a life free of fear, self doubt and worries.  Have a blessed weekend. Love, Ms. Jeannie:-)

and remember…

To always do what makes you happy, not what others think is right for you or will make you happy; happiness is a personal matter.  The knowing of what is best for us comes from within ourselves, not from an outside source or others.

Siempre haz lo que te haga feliz a ti, no lo que otros digan o piensen que es mejor para ti; la felicidad es un asunto personal.  El conocimiento de saber que es lo que mas nos conviene viene de nuestro interior, no de afuera o de nadie.
