REKS Optics

Happy Monday, everyone! I wanted to share something exciting with you! Do you ever want something so bad that you wish for it, put out positive vibes, and then the universe seems to bring you exactly what you wanted? Well, that recently happened to me!

Before we move to California, Alejandro and I will be vacationing in Europe for about two and a half weeks. While writing my (potential) packing list, I thought of how it would be amazing if I had a pair of sunglasses that: matched everything, looked trendy, and would be durable. Not one week after setting these standards, I found the perfect sunglasses!

REKS Optics has everything that I want in a pair of sunglasses! They are completely customizable, so you can design a pair that fits your unique style. You are able to choose between a wide variety of frames, lenses, and colors (both for the frames and the lenses). REKS Optics are also affordable, with prices ranging from $30-$60! And best of all, they are UNBREAKABLE. Yes, I just typed that. These sunglasses bend and twist, but don’t break! Which is absolutely amazing. I finally found a pair of sunglasses that I can just toss in my bag, and not have to worry about whether or not they’re okay. These durable sunglasses are perfect for when I nanny, travel, or just for everyday use. What more could you ask for?

Marl Circle Hem Pocket Cover-Up

They say a Sunday well spent brings a week of content, and I could not agree more! Personally, I feel best when I wake up early, exercise, and do a little cooking/meal prepping. Being productive makes me feel relaxed, which is exactly how I spent this Sunday. After cooking breakfast my German Shepherd, boyfriend, and I, walked to The Fens for a little playtime! On days that I’m running around I want to feel comfortable, and over-sized cover-ups and sweaters are my go-to items.
One of my favorites is my marl circle hem pocket cover-up from Express. I love to wear this oversized cover-up with a pair of jean leggings. I like the way the tight jeans contrast the baggy sweater. These versatile items are one of my favorite pieces, because they go well with so many items in my closet.  Whether you wear this cover-up with casual boots or heeled booties, your favorite jeans or a beautiful scarf, this cover-up will complete any daytime look.

Home Sweet Home

Hello, Boston! I am back in town and loving our sunny, blue skies. I had the most wonderful time in Texas! I wish I could have stayed longer but I am happy to be home. I spent a lot of quality time with my boyfriend and his family. It was absolutely amazing! Now, it is time to get back to work. But first, here are some outfit details that I had during my vacation.
I purchased my shoes from the DSW on Washington Street in Downtown Boston. However, when I looked online I found that DSW only sells Coach in stores, not online.
My bracelets come from a combination of various places. The first and third bangles are from Forever 21. They are not sold at the moment but I really enjoy their bangle selection. The second one from the top was made for me by my mother. And the last bangle was a gift given to me for being in my cousin’s wedding. My ring was hand-made at a boardwalk in Florida.
My Basic Black Top is from H&M. My ripped jean shorts are from Express. They are not sold online at the moment but they are having a sale on their denim jeans right now. You can either find mine in stores or a similar pair online. I bought my Lucky Brand Emmie flats from Marshalls. My necklace and purse are from Nigeria.
My maxi dress is from Marshalls and was purchased last summer. My top two bracelets were given to me as a gift. I found my bottom bracelet from a yard sale in Maine. My Sydney Satchel is from Fossil but I purchased it from
My striped tee is from Express. My shorts are from Charlotte Russe. I bought both of these items a few summers ago and are not available at this time. My shoes are from Nine West but I bought them from Marshalls. 
My Ray-Bans are from Sunglass Hut. My necklace was hand-made by my mother. My Kimono is from JC Penney. 
My top two bracelets, the bottom bracelet, and my ring were gifts. I bought the large bracelet from Barcelona.  
During the Texas heat I chose to wear basic, diverse outfits and dress them up with some details. I was able to enjoy my time while feeling comfortable and looking cute. I love being home but cannot wait to see where my next trip will be! 
Thanks for stopping by, Cute Teachings!
