shorts

This Means Business

Working at an office, I’ve always thought how can I get through this workwear rut. I don’t like button downs (I do but just not at the office), blazers over button downs, slacks -like are we going to an interview everyday of our lives?! Let’s give a new meaning to going to work, one of the things people say is do what makes you happy, and I say if it doesn’t, look like you are!

Sometimes I may get out of hand and confuse happy with sexy and then I’m just doing whatever I want, appropriate or not. So I’m trying to find a happy medium and share my findings with you. Today’s outfit: I kept it high enough and long enough without anyone catching any feelings. The bodysuit was comfortable and covered all of my upper lady parts, for $10?! Sign me up! The shorts probably belonged to a blazer sometime in the past, but this time around,  I let them go it at alone. I added this bold cuff from the Balmain for H&M line. Who doesn’t know Oliver Rousting? He has dressed the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and all of her family. It’s almost been a year since his wallet friendly line for H&M. Question is will he ever do a line FOR the less fortunate? Will he sculpt our bodies the way he does these celebratory women? I’m all for it! Just say the words! For now, all I could get my hands on from this line was this superpower bracelet/cuff. It’s gold, my favorite metallic, shiny, big, it’s me. Maybe I too can be a part of his army.

The newest H&M collaboration line is nothing but extravagant, prints on prints on prints, well -way to go Kenzo. I thank you. Cookie cutter is not what it’s all about these days, personification, expression, liberation is what we can all relate to. I look forward to November 2016, as long as I can get my hands on something!!!

How do you make your workwear work for you?

What do you think about the Kenzo for H&M line? Will you suffer? Usually a month or 2 in advance they give more sneak peeks, stay tuned for the never ending mind games fashion has to offer…

Happy Weekend!

Please Me…

That’s the color of my lipstick .

A blazer over a bodysuit under what I like to call ‘real boy’ shorts and open toe booties is my definition of office style with a side street.  I am always trying to find a balance between the two.

How do you think I pulled off this look? Would you wear bermuda shorts to the office?

The March-ing Gram

Flashback Friday: Can’t forget my March instagram posts. It was cold, it was hot and it was cold again! There was lots of coffee, Spring flowers, selfies (of course) and some art this past month.  Follow me @budgetsai for more of all this and daily budgets!

Have a beautiful weekend! AccuWeather says plenty of sunshine in New York! Woohoo!

Tulum Ruins: Day 3

It was the middle of our trip and it was finally time to go see the Mayan Ruins in Tulum. We got on a local bus then took a 10 minute walk directly into the our destination. These particular ruins are the only ones that over look the ocean, a view that just takes your breath away. We spent most of the the time stopping at every structure and reading up on what each “building” represented for the Mayans. It was probably the hottest day of that week so we made sure to bring our swimsuits to take a dip in the water towards the end of our educational adventure. As we were leaving we stopped for some refreshing coconut water. Ahhh…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Tulum: Day 2/Night 2

Day 2 in Tulum meant to start working on a tan in none other than a little black bikini. I added a fun statement necklace and lots of arm candy to brighten up my beach bum look!

For the night out I let my clutch do all the talking with its beautifully sewed in sequins and abstract print.

Happy Friday!
