My Puerto Rico Vacation

If you follow me on Instagram @olyacreative, you probably know that my husband and I went to Puerto Rico last week. It was a beautiful and very relaxing vacation. We had a lot of fun!

Below are some great memories I captured with my iphone:

White Blouse with Boyfriend Jeans

It’s been a while since I wore boyfriends jeans, and so today I decided to pair them with a white blouse. The dark brown shoes, belt and oversized handbag helped me make the outfit interesting and sharp. I added gold bracelets to finish up the look.

Simple and stylish, that’s the way I like it! :)

Red and Yellow

Combining today two strong colors – red and yellow. I wore the exact same color combination before, but the two looks are different. Judge for yourself!

Boyfriend jeans and basic top look cute and dressy together after I matched them with leopard scarf and leather accessories.

Outfit with Striped Skirt

Love this Freestyle Tiered Elastic Skater Skirt from Dillard’s. I like how I can shape it however I want, and I do like it puffy.

Wearing only two colors, but the outfit isn’t boring thanks to the stripes and texture of the skirt.

Outfit with Over the Knee Boots

Over the knee boots are one of my favorite ones of all! I love wearing them with jeans or a long skirt. I wouldn’t wear them with short skirt though, I like a little more modest look, but that’s just my style. :)

I like how oversized red necklace adds a pop of red color to the look making it more interesting and fun.

Baked Apples with Walnuts and Raisins

When I was little, my grandma always baked apples in winter, especially during Christmas time. It was a special time for many reasons.

Today my chilldren and I baked some apples at home, and we enjoyed it so much that from now on it will be our family winter tradition.

Baked Apples with Walnuts and Raisins

4 medium size apples (I used Gala)
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cups raisins
3 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granola
powdered sugar to decorate
 
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Slice off top of apples and core them, be sure to not cut through the bottom.
3. In a bowl mix walnuts, raisins, granola, honey and brown sugar.
4. Stuff each apple with 1/4 of the mixture.

5. Place each apple in a baking dish.

6. Bake for 45-60 min.

7. When done, sprinkle with powdered sugar!

 

Black Dress and Pearls

I wore this outfit to the Christmas party, and felt very comfortable in it. The little black dress (by Antonio Melani) is my new favorite dress for special occasions as well as almost everyday. That’s how much I like it!

I wore it in a more casual way in my previous post, and looking dressy today as I matched it with black heels, evening clutch and pearls.

Find My Little Black Dress

It’s time to wear warmer clothes, even in Florida! I am wearing a black dress by Antonio Melani. I bought it for a special occasion, and wore it with pearls to a Christmas party yesterday. The dress is so comfortable that I am wearing it today again with a casual sweater (by Sugarlips) and boots!

I have a feeling I will be wearing the dress a lot… to the restaurants, shopping and just running errands, therefore buying one more dress, just like it, to keep for special occasions! :-)

My Colorful Outfit

Sharing with you today my colorful look. It’s about time I need to start wearing more Christmassy outfits, but for now blue, yellow and green colors look pretty cheerful. The two photos I am attaching are the best ones my 7 year-old daughter took of me, the rest are blurry…but she is learning. :-)

As you noticed, I don’t post as often as I used to, I am very busy lately. However, you can still get more recent updates from me if you follow my instagram @olyacreative.
