Navy Blue & Lemons

SONY DSC

Yesterday as I was getting ready to go do a little shopping at Costco, I reached into my closet thinking I was pulling out a navy blue tank top I have, but instead, out came this dress! I was a little confused because it’s the exact same color and fabric (plus I’m a little sick, AGAIN! So my brain’s a little off), and had to take a few seconds before I remembered this dress.

I believe I bought this dress a little over a year ago, and am still uncertain on how I feel about it. It’s very comfy, always love a great navy blue piece, I think it’s just how I feel about it on me…hmmm…I still wore it out, but still debating on whether to keep it or offer it to one of my sisters. ;)

We’ve made it to Wednesday! How the days go by. Have a happy hump-day and stay classy!

First Day of Summer

SONY DSC

*drumroll please* Yes!! It’s finally arrived! The 1st day of summer! And from the looks of it, according to The Weather Network, it’s actually here!

Time to pull out all of our fun (and barely-there) clothing, cute shoes (get rid of those socks!) and the most important pieces to a great summer?? Sangria & Mojitos! I could sure go for some right now ;)

To start the [real] summer days off right, I pulled this bright yellow number out of my closet. It’s been a piece I’ve held onto for years now, and don’t plan on letting go! A great dress like this never goes out of style (but frankly, I don’t care. If I like it, I wear it!) Paired with these purple heels, which are the solid colored version of the ones I’ve worn here. Yellow and purple, one of my favorite color combinations.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday! I hope it’s as beautiful for you as it is for me, and have a wonderful weekend! Stay classy!

The Remaining of NY Summed Up

Back in good ol’ Montreal…where the weather right now is a little rainy, but looks like it’ll get better by the weekend! Lucky for us, the day we left New York, the weather there was also gloomy and raining, which was fine since our previous days were quite sunny and nice.

There are only so many pictures, but let me tell you, we did have a great time! I haven’t walked so much in quite a while, so it felt nice to just be able to do that (even though our legs were KILLING by the next day :P). As I mentioned in my last post what we were planning on doing, we spent a good amount of our Saturday strolling through the MET. The exhibit I wanted to see most was the Punk: From Chaos to Couture. What an exhibit! The fashions that were displayed were phenomenal and it was so exciting to see all these different designers’ outfits. Such art! If you’re in the area, or are heading there soon, go check it out! It’s really something, along with the many other exhibits going on there, that shouldn’t be missed!

Now that my vacation fun is over (Vegas & New York), expect daily posts coming your way! I’m hoping to incorporate some other types of posts (i.e. recipes, fitness, diy, etc) so if any of you have any suggestions on what you would like to read, throw them my way! Like I always mention, I love to hear your thoughts! Until next time, stay classy realists ;)

Sin City; Day 1, strolling the strip

SONY DSCSONY DSC

Hello realists!! Vegas is treating me great so far! The food is wonderful, the weather is perfect, and I’m up on roulette!!! ;) Oh, how I love this wonderful city!!

Yesterday, we were waiting for the 4th member of our crew to fly in at night, so we took it easy by just strolling the strip and making our way to Bacchanal, the buffet at Caesars Palace. A little pricier than your typical buffet, but the food is far from typical! Freshly shucked oysters, jumbo cocktail shrimp, sushi (and good sushi, not the usual “don’t eat that” sushi you’ll find at buffets), and a dessert table that will literally make you gain a few pounds just by looking at it!

After needing to all be rolled out of there, we made a quick stop at Fashion Show Mall. I was able to snag a beautiful pair of Brian Atwood heels from Neiman Marcus for half price! I’ve mentioned it before, and I’ll say it again, I love sales!! :) (I was also very happy that I was able to win back most of my shoe money on roulette at night!) After being high from this wonderful purchase, we made our way back to our hotel for some pool time.

Now, amongst all this pleasant talk, I have some bad news. Somewhere, somehow, along our walk, the lens’ on my camera broke…how, I have no clue! One minute I’m taking pictures, the next, the strangest noise was coming out of it! We passed by a camera shop along the trip back, and the guy there told me that my lens was broken. And just like good ol’ Vegas hospitality, he tried very hard to sell me a new one…no thank you, I just spent my money on some sexy heels. Shitty, yes, so now you’ll have to view my trip through my trusty IPhone. Not a dslr, but can definitely take some good pictures under the right circumstances ;)

Besides the camera incident, everything is great! Here are a few pics of my strolling outfit, accompanied by some group/scenery shots. Enjoy, and stay classy!!

Vegas Flight Attire

Vegas! Woohoo! So excited to be in this energetic, and hot, city! This is not my first time here, nor my last, but it’s my first time spending it with only girls! (This will get interesting ;)) So, as promised, I will keep up with my posting ( I know I missed yesterday’s, but it was quite hectic!), and here’s my first outfit/story that started in Montreal, and ended in Vegas!

The past few times that I’ve flown for more than an hour, I’ve always worn the typical flight ensemble; tights, a tee, and a sweater for when it gets chilly. I already am not a huge fan of flying, so getting dressed up for it was never thought of, until this flight! Now, I didn’t “dress up”, but I did settle on wearing this simple, black, maxi dress, accompanied by my trusty turquoise blazer.

This maxi dress is perfect in the sense that it cost me, drumroll, $13!!! As I was strolling through the mall the other day, preparing for the photo shoot I just took part in, I strolled past none other than Sirens and saw this dress hanging there with the price card “$13”. I haven’t walked into a Sirens in yeeeaaaaaars, but I thought “What’s the shame in trying it?” Good thing I did!! Fits perfect, love a racer-back and v-neck anything, and it’s comfy! Score!

First day was just mostly us hanging poolside, so not many pictures to show, but I will definitely be bringing you some! Keep reading, and stay classy!

P.s. These pictures are not the best, please forgive me, but they will get better! I’ll make sure to get somewhere (outside ;)) with better lighting! :)

Grand-parents’ 50th anniversary

DSC04500

This past Saturday was a big deal for our family. It was my grand-parents’ 50th anniversary! 50 years together. I think “Wow!”, and then I remember “Oh right, I’m married too and will be making that mark one day as well…” This August is my 5th anniversary (woohoo!) Another 45 years to go ;)

To help celebrate this wonderful occasion, we all decided to throw them a surprise party at this awesome Greek restaurant called Mythos. My grand-parents are as Greek as they come, so to know that they would enjoy eating/dancing here was a given!

Now, any reason for me to dress up is a good reason, although  I like to believe that you don’t really “need” a reason, per se. So, with the weather really warming up in Montreal, I had the pleasure of pulling out this beautiful maxi dress that I’m absolutely in love with. Everything from the colors, to the way it fits, down to the draped fabric on the right side. Also, for this special occasion, I felt that it was a perfect time to pull out my wedding shoes. I try to wear these sexy babies as often as I can!

On another note, I’ll be leaving for Sin City tomorrow. Yes, Las Vegas, baby! I’m so excited for this trip because I’ll be spending it with some of my cousins, and I’ve yet to go to Vegas with only girls. I’ll be sure to continue with my posts, so make sure to tune in and read all about my vacation in Vegas!

You don’t need me to remind you, stay classy, realists!

Tribal inspired mini dress

SONY DSC

Yesterday I wrote a post about bold prints being hot and in this season! To continue on with that topic, I put together an outfit today with a tribal inspired pattern.

What I like about this dress is that not only is it comfy and looks super cute, but you can wear it either dressed up for a night out with the girls, or dressed down to go grocery shopping! You can also pair it with some black tights on chillier days, like I did this morning. Also, I mentioned yesterday that you can definitely mix and match prints, which is what I did here. Instead of pairing the dress with a solid, neutral sweater (which is what I was planning on doing at first), I decided to combine the print of my dress with the stripes on this particular sweater. Patterns can absolutely mingle ;)

I hope that wherever you’re reading this from, the weather is starting to warm up for you as well, or if you’re one of the lucky ones, you’re already wearing shorts ;) As always, stay classy, realists!

Muscle Tank; Sporty with a twist!

SONY DSC

Here we are! Outfit #2 of our DIY muscle tee! Yesterday’s outfit was a casual/chic one, today, how’s about something a little sportier?

As I was sitting and staring into my closet, I kept thinking “How can I make this work, looking sporty, but without being too literal?” Here it is! A bodycon dress (which has also made an appearance once before, but as a striped version), with the tee paired over it, perfect! Throw on some black tights, since the weather’s still a little brisk, and combined them with wedged sneakers. The great thing about the versatility of this outfit is that you can really throw on any comfy sneaker, boot, whatever your preference may be, and it’ll work just as great!

Tomorrow, I think I’m going to throw in some classier fabrics, so stay tuned!! And as always, stay classy ;)

Cats, dolls, and nightwalks

Hey there!! As mentioned in “Wishing for warm weather”, the hubby is away for work so I unfortunately have no one here to help snap some shots of outfits (boo). Luckily, I have some pictures saved from a night out a few weeks ago. This outfit is quite appropriate because my eyes were so irritating that night that I had to omit wearing contacts and don a pair of frames, and yesterday, the post was conveniently about just that, glasses!

I found the cat-eye frame to add character to the lace, baby-doll dress. The overall ensemble was quite “sweet” looking, which is why I decided to top it all off with my most comfortable, and easiest to walk in, nude nightwalks. Those shoes are by far one of the most coveted items I own. Contrary to what they look like, I’ve never walked with such ease in a pair of 6″ heels. If you own a pair, you understand exactly what I’m talking about. If you don’t, you need to go out and try them to find out exactly what I’m talking about! Along with that, who doesn’t love a pair of black opaque, over-the-knee stockings? ;)

Wherever you are in the world, have a great Friday/Saturday! ;)
