Another day, another fit and flare dress. They really are just the perfect little number to have in your closet. If you’ve stuck around here long enough, you also know the love affair I have with the color mint. But can you blame a girl?! I love that it’s fun, while also being an easy hue to dress up.

As for the jacket/blazer, I had my eye on this little number for quite sometime before my friend surprised me with for my birthday! (love you kels!) It’s versatile and lightweight enough to wear on windy Summer nights, even here in Miami.

Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

p.s. My mani and pedi matched my dress,Β  I love when that happens!

Cotton Candy Cocktail

Cotton Candy Cocktail 4 Cotton Candy Cocktail 1 Cotton Candy Cocktail 2

Oh do I love a pretty cocktail. And anything cotton candy related. So, this Cotton Candy Cocktail is a win-win! Don’t let the frilliness fool you, this Cotton Candy Martini packs a punch. (After all, it is a martini!)

Ingredients Needed:

  • Cotton Candy Flavored Vodka, I used Pinnacle Vodka
  • Cotton Candy
  • Selzer Water
  • Pink Sugar Sprinkles

To make, pour into a bar shaker 6 ounces of vodka and a handful of ice cubes. Shake vigorously for about a minute. Pour equal amounts into two martini glasses. Splash each drink with selzer water, (about 2 ounces each) to dilute it a bit. Sprinkle a few sprinkles into the center of the glass to create a pink hue. Lastly, garnish with a chunk of cotton candy.

P.S. I had fun with the left over cotton candy and made a Cotton Candy Bouquet! Or you can just gobble up what’s left…no judgement.

Crop & Cargo

Can you say crop top? I normally shy away from extreme crop tops, but I could not resist this ruffled chambray. I was going to style it with one of my favorite organza and white skirts, but I decided to shake things up and give it a little more of a laid back feel with some cargo pants.

And what better to tie the look together than with some red heels and a statement necklace?

The Dress of All Trades

I’ve talked about my love for LWD’s (little white dresses) on Sugar Love Chic before. They are just one of those wardrobe pieces that are always good to have in your closet, because depending on the style of the LWD, it could be fit for just about every occasion. Take this little number I’m wearing from Wal G. This dress is office appropriate, party ready and brunch attire…all in one. Talk about an investment! Not that you’ll have to break bank, considering the dress is only $60.00. (happy dance)

Styling LWD’s are so fun. Colorful accessories add some seasonal flare; that’s why I went with mint. The color mint is just as versatile as an LWD. The shade is always in style!

Have a wonderful week! And don’t forget to follow my fashion and foodie adventures here:

DIY Bejewled Birks


DIY Birks

This DIY is for my fellow style mavens that have hesitantly, but without a regret, given into the Birkenstock trend. Because let’s face it, once you’ve placed your feet in a pair of these 90’s staples, you’re inclined to do a happy dance. What I’m getting at is that they’re so comfortable! Since these are indeed a fad, try and find a pair that won’t break your bank (true Birks can run you $100 plus!).

Here are a few affordable options to fulfill your trendy need: Target,Nordstrom (on sale!), Macy’s (the ones I used)


Since this style of sandal is already pretty funky, I thought I would have fun with it and add some bling. You’ll need a tube of Gorilla Glue,Β  acrylic gems, and of course a pair of Birkenstocks or look-a-likes. The first thing I did was lay out a few different patterns I had in mind to figure out what I was feeling. I think the key to keeping it edgy and not cheesy is a simple and off-centered pattern.

Wondering how to style these bad boys? I’ll be posting some outfit inspo featuring them soon. Until then, remember simplicity is best. A shift dress or some denim cutoffs and muscle tee are two style ideas!



Denim and Daisies

Shoes: Dolce Vita Necklace: Similar

Since I was sent these Dittos Brand jeans, I’ve hardly taken them off. I’m so particular when it comes to the fit of jeans, even loose fit boyfriend jeans. Especially if you have some curves and a little junk in the trunk, these jeans are a great choice. I often either get completely lost in BFjeans or they look like seven of me can fit in them, but not these. Great fit, slouchy fit! I’ve also decided to join the Daisy trend. It’s all coming up daisies since Spring and the trend is still strong into Summer. I can see why, daisies are the little princesses of flowers! So cute.

How about these shoes by Dolce Vita? I’m obsessed. I love a shoe that goes with everything and perfect for almost any occasion. And as for this pretty little studded tote is an almost exact replica of the classic Valentino style, which runs for $2,500….but mine right here is from Dailylook and cost me $40.00! I’ve linked up similar styles here and here. BF jeans, crop top and block heeled sandals-three perfect Summer staples!
