5 Things Im Loving Right Now

Happy Monday all!

1. d’Orsay Flats:

I’ve always thought d’Orsay flats  were cute so I decided to pick up a pair for the upcoming Spring.  I absolutely love flats and these are a perfect addition to my flat collection.  What do you think?

2. Lupita Nyong’o:

I have such a girl crush on Lupita Nyong’o! From her soul crushing performance as Patsey in “12 Years a Slave” to her amazing sense of style, I’m here for all of it! She seems to be well grounded and humble which I hope translates into a long successful career. So when I’m watching the Oscars next Sunday, I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for her! Go Lupita!

3. IGIGI Chelsea Dress in Fuego:

You all know how I feel about IGIGI. I absolutely love their dresses and how they fit my body.  What sold me on this dress was the print.  It reminded me of an unfinished  water-color painting. Add the color scheme and I couldn’t resist!

4. Duolingo:

My friend Tamera suggested I download Duolingo to help me learn some French for my upcoming trip to Paris.  Whenever I go abroad, I try to learn a few phrases to get around.  What I like most about this app is that it is so easy to use and I really feel like I’m learning French (not fluent but enough to say “where is the bathroom?”!)

5. Voskos Greek Yogurt:

After trying Voskos a try last week I’m adding it to my list of  favorite yogurts. I had the  wild strawberry and  apricot mango yogurts and both were very creamy.  Neither had the funny after taste that is common in a lot of non fat yogurts. I plan on trying the exotic fig and Greek honey varieties this week…YUM!

    Haha. As I sit here typing, I’m wearing a pair of black Steve Madden d’Orsay flats!! I love them. The only thing, I had to go down half a size to fit them. Same with an Adrienne Vitadini (sp?) pair I tried on. They’re definitely a shoe that has to fit well, no fudging the fit with them.

    I love that Igigi dress on you! Gorgeous colors and a perfect fit!

      I had to go down a half size too! I think when the fit alittle snug they wont slip off.

    The colors on the dress are gorgeous. And I love wearing flats; I can’t wear heels any more – my feet don’t like them. My feet don’t really like closed shoes at all, so it’s a good thing I live where I can wear sandals year round. 🙂

    Oh my gosh…you are a knockout in that dress! So freakin pretty. I’ve been trying to use Duolingo to brush up on my Spanish but so far I have not stuck with it haha. And thanks for the yogurt suggestion, I love greek yogurt!

    Seeing your outfit post on Instagram, I had to come see the full post! The Chelsea Dress in Fuego looks ah-mazing on you. Truly. It’s so pretty against your skin. I’ so excited to come up with new ways to style mine. I think I need a hot pink coat so I can copy your look here!

    And those d’Orsay flats! I am in love! I love ballet flats, and I’m always walking around downtown, so I’ve had to make the switch from heels to flats for the sake of my ankles. lol I love them because there’s just something so chic about them that elevates them from the traditional ballet flat.
