I love Sunshine and Coral








Hi Friends; yeah, we had sunshine in the twin cities today; lots and lots of it. The sky was so blue and beautiful. I decided to celebrate the beautiful sun-shinny weather by bursting out in my summer brights. I threw on a light coral cable knit sweater and my coral color pumps to cruise around in. I also had on the latest addition to my sunnies collection; a love shaped sunglasses I got recently from Loft. I changed from heels to flats later on to go shopping. The outfit was a little matchy-matchy and though this might not be the trend right now, but sometimes, matchy-matchy is good. As I write this post, I am still basking in the sun rays streaming from the open windows. What a beautiful day!

There is no condition that is permanent in life. After the rain comes the sun and after winter comes spring. The only thing that is unchangeable in life is God. He was there from the beginning and he created all. With him (God) all things are possible.

John 1: 1-5 King James Version (KJV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Floral in the Rain




So, it has been raining a lot in Minneapolis lately and though I love the rain; I also love the sun. I like to see the flowers blooming on a beautiful, sunny day. Well, it started raining again this morning and I just could not hold off anymore. If nature would not give me flowers on a bright, sunny day, I will create my own flowers on a rainy spring day...:-).  I went in my closet and got this floral sweatshirt I got at Loft a while ago and threw on some accessories. The black denim is also from Loft and I love the zipper on the sides which is not obvious from these pictures. If you are a frequent visitor to this blog, you would have known by now that I love Loft. It is one of my favorite stores aside from Victorias Secret and Forever 21. Also, if you notice that I am frowning; I was just tired of the rain because it kept drizzling even as I took these pictures.

Jeans: Loft
Shoes: DSW

I usually do not like sweat shirts because of their boxy silhouette but I really loved the floral prints on this one and after I rolled up the sleeves, it was not too bad. I loved this floral sweatshirt so much that I created an outfit on it in Polyvore here and blogged about it here. The sweatshirt is currently on sale at Loft and you might want to check it out. I wish you a great and wonderful weekend and see you soon; here or on your blogs.

Pop of Yellow





The weekend is over but I am glad it is a holiday tomorrow and that means we are going to have a short work week and that is so awesome. I went to a friend's graduation ceremony today; he has been a practicing pharmacist for year before he decided to go back to school for his masters degree. And it was quite great that he finished the program at the intended time even with family obligations. A very big congratulations to the graduating class of 2015 everywhere; way to go!

I decided to put on this jumpsuit for the occasion because it is so fun and a bit trendy at the same time. I added a pop of color with my yellow heels because yellow is the color for the season and I like the way, yellow, black and white go so well together. If you are able to overlook the inconvenience of going to the ladies room, jumpsuits are very great party outfits. It has been raining a lot over here in Minneapolis and I hope it is nice and dry where you are.

Amazing!!




I have only been away from the blog for about a week and I feel like I have been away longer than that...:-). I missed my blog, my precious little space, so I am here again for a quick post. There are so many things happening behind the scenes which I will share later because I have been busy. You might be wondering what is amazing about this post based on the title and I will tell you what it is at the end of the post but first of all, let's talk about the outfit.

This dress is what I wore on Mother's day and I did not really want to share the photos because as you can tell, I looked like I just had a workout at the gym but that's not really a sweaty face; it was raindrops. Yeah, it was all rainy on mother's day but the sun peeked out occasionally. I got this floral dress from a local boutique in my neighborhood and they do not have a website but are on Facebook. I loved the floral prints on the dress a lot but I did not like the fact that it had no sleeves. I would like to share a secret with you; I am very self conscious about my fat arms which have always been big even when I was very skinny while growing up. This is the main reason why I always wear clothes with sleeves or always have a jacket with me for coverup when I wear sleeveless tops. So, this jacket was purchased at Macys a long time ago and it is different from the one I wore in this previous post here. Remember I told  you almost every jacket in my closet has a twin?....hehehe. Do you think this outfit is a lot similar to the one I created on polyvore here?






Blazers: Macys
                                                                        Dress: Elite Apparel
                                                                        Purse: Express
                                                                        Shoes: Louboutins





Okay, so you know "Yours Sincerely" here likes to talk or write a lot right?..lol. Now let's talk about what's amazing about this post. My first daughter started kindergarten last fall and she talked about her new friend Ella all the time. They are in the same class and best friends. Well, it happened that Ella got sick a lot and she was diagnosed with cancer earlier in the year. She went through a series of chemo treatments and missed school a lot. My daughter was very sad and when Ella lost all her hair it was quite devastating. I thank God that Ella's parents are strong believers in God and there were lots of prayers for sweet little Ella. Miraculously, Ella went for her scan a few days ago and all the cancer cells are gone! Amazing. Everone is so overjoyed. She still needs to go in to the hospital every three or six months for check-ups but that's okay. At least now, she can start to have a normal life again fit for a five year old. IF YOU WANT TO READ MORE ABOUT ELLA, YOU CAN VISIT THE CARING BRIDGE WEBSITE HERE; her mum constantly updates the site but you will need to sign in with a google or other social media account to get access. She turns six next weekend and we are all going to be at her birthday party.

Give me Rain..




It has been raining a lot in the twin cities (Minneapolis-Saint Paul) the last couple of days and while the rain is actually no big deal compared to the snow we deal with in the winter time, It does mess with our plans of enjoying outdoors. However, I do not mind the rain at all; in fact, give me rain everyday, I'm happy with it. I really would love to just lay under the blanket on a rainy day though but on a day like today when I wore this outfit; I had to go run a couple errands which also included some shopping.

I wore a pair of black flats with this outfit to run around but switched into this heels for this shoot. This BCBG peacock print pumps go so well with the down vest and I love the prints a lot. When I first saw this shoes online, they were sold out everywhere in this print and I tracked and purchased this pair on ebay; It is the only thing I ever bought off of ebay and I think they were totally worth the purchase.

This denim pants are my latest DIY project; It's an old pair of jeans that I purchased from Target a long time ago and I took a razor blade and emery board to it to create the ripped and distressed look. It actually took less than ten minutes to complete the DIY. I am gradually loving the distressed denim trend but I'm glad I did not have to spend a lot getting the look. More DIYs on the way this summer..:-).

 Spring showers should not hinder our style in any way so it is always a good idea to own some fashion pieces or clothing that can elevate our look on a rainy day. When holding an umbrella or wearing a raincoat is not practical, we can wear a down vest with fun accessories or a cute pair of rain boots when there are lots of puddles on our way. "The glam continues-rain or shine...:-)."
