Pale Pink Pearls

Hi everybody!

Today's outfit is casual with a hint of professionalism. I kept the main pieces very basic, with black flats and skinny jeans, and a white tank top. The long cardigan is actually a button-up dress that I kept open. I used the belt it came with to cinch in the waist. I then threw on a string of pale pink pearls, the focal point of the outfit. They add a touch of classiness and sophistication to an otherwise comfy outfit.

I hope you enjoyed!

Blushing Chiffon Dress

Hello everybody!

This is what I wore this Valentine's day. I'm in love with the dress! It's a lovely dusty rose color, and fits me very well. Normally, I'm reluctant to shop online, but I couldn't pass this dress up. I'm even considering more in different colors! The great thing about a nice dress is that other accessories aren't needed. I kept mine to a minimum, with earthy tones to complement the warm salmon color.

I'm not only in love with the dress, but also with my backdrop! These fountains are in my neighborhood. I noticed while on a run the other day that the shrubs had been trimmed, bright flowers replanted, and I knew I had to take pictures out here! The weather has also been very nice, and I now look forward to my runs around the scenic community. I also want to stop by here to read. I just finished The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, which I highly recommend! It's an amazing read, and I look forward to reading other books by this author.

I hope you enjoyed!

A Day of Sunshine

Hello everybody!

My little brother, Isaiah, and I went outside for a stroll in our neighborhood and I decided to take pictures along the way. Currently, the weather in Dubai is nice and still slightly balmy. It won't be long before the heat regains its grip on the city, so I wanted to take some pictures before then!

We took matching "Uncle Rico" poses.

I hope you enjoyed the photos!
