Pump it Up

I went to Nordstrom Rack to buy some jeans for my husband (yes, I am his personal shopper) and came back with 3 pair of pants for him and this beauty for me... it only costed me $22 bucks, hard to believe!

Floral Skirt

Last weekend I went shopping for some specific pieces that are missing on my wardrobe, and (as always) I came back home with some unexpected findings... like this floral pleated skirt and a few others to be reviewed later here. I love the flow, colors and how the flowers appears to be falling onto the skirt. The tee is also a new addition to my closet... it fits so well that I got in blue and yellow but what I really wanted was to style the floral skirt with some stripes, which will require another trip to the mall. Take a look below...

Top: Madewell (on sale now at stores), Skirt: AE (new arrival), Sweater: J. Crew, Purse: HM, Shoes: from Brazil

Guess who?

Last Saturday I went to my Brazilian friend's baby shower (congrats Raquel Poubel) and one of the games was to guess each other baby's picture. I didn't know anybody among 10 to 12 girls there but every single one of them guess it right and recognized me by this picture when I was maybe only 2 years old. Is it that obvious?

This is what I was wearing that day...

Top and shoes: From Brazil; Shorts: J. Crew;  Bag: HM (available in stores only);  Glasses: LOFT (now 40% off with code SHOP40); Watch: Michael Kors
