After an eventful month, some much-needed me-time was mandatory. While it is enjoyable to dress up for work, it’s nice to take a break and dress down for the weekends. Lace is a great option when you know that you will be out in the summer heat. It can spice up any casual outfit and make it look more chic. However, I have to admit that wearing a pair of jeans in 30+ degrees weather was not the smartest idea. A lighter fabric and a shorter pair of bottoms would have probably been a better choice for this kind of day.

Since nothing exciting was planned for the weekend, I took the opportunity to do a little bit of shopping for basic essentials and beachwear for my upcoming trip to Punta Cana. Even though the trip is a month away, I have already started planning my vacation wardrobe. I can’t wait to spend some time under the sun!

Are you travelling anywhere exciting this summer?


  1. Oh my goodness, I know that feeling! I definitely love dressing down whenever I get the opportunity. I love your lace top!
