Found this cute & super comfy black tunic with an illusion neckline at Target a few weeks ago and I love it! It has high slits on each side and it actually is a sheer lace top (so technically I made the illusion neckline myself) but to make it everyday/work appropriate I paired it with a black cami underneath.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and that today was a good start to your week :)! This week is my Bachelorette Party so I’m sooooooo (!!!!!) very excited to be reunited will all of my amazing friends & bridesmaids!!! Woohoo!!!

xoxo Sera :)

Happy “Inspired Wednesday” party peeps! Finally sharing some of the photos from the magical creative photo shoot that I did with Brittany Bowen of brittanybowen.com

I’m sharing a good amount of the photos (but not all of them…for real there’s more!) because seriously I’m kind of in love with all of them :)! Not in a vain way just in a “Holy moly these are beautiful” thanks to Brittany being a kick a** photographer & having a wonderfully artistic eye!!

I went for a very boho-chic look because let’s be honest if I could wear a lacey dress and flower crown on my head every day I would!  Plus, it looks very ethereal and totally worked for our shooting location.

Hope you like them and feel inspired for the rest of the week :)!

xoxo Boho-Chic Sera ;)

I Love You

Hello Chic Readers!!! Sorry that I’ve been a little MIA, planning a wedding is crazy! Been super busy but have a new outfit to share today! Several things I’m loving & wearing quite often right now:

1) This flowy pleated chiffon accordion top because the red is a beautiful true red and the movement is so cool!

2) A fun sexy crochet bra perfect for Valentine’s Day (and all other days!)!

3) I’ve recently rediscovered this “Eye Heart You” necklace which I’m digging. It was sitting in my jewelry organizer and I haven’t worn it in a really long time so I’m sure it’s happy to be out and about!

This red top is seriously a steal though. Even if you don’t love the color red/wearing red definitely check it out as it also comes in white! I literally love wearing the color red year round and that’s probably why I really enjoy Christmas, Valentine’s Day and the 4th of July (among a lot of other reasons)! But seriously there’s tons of red around for these holidays which is the best! It’s such a vibrant, sexy and powerful color. Why do you think I’m obsessed with red lips?! Haha.

Plus it’s the color of love and passion and who doesn’t like those things ;)?

Hope you are all getting ready for Valentine’s Day…it’s quickly approaching!

xoxo “I Love You” Sera :)

Top: Forever 21/ Belt: J.Crew/ Jacket: Zara/ Ring: TomTom/ Necklace: Cocktail Bling/ Leggings: Zella/ Booties: Rag & Bone/ Sunglasses: Celine/ Lips: MAC ‘Rebel’

I remember spotting this chevron asymmetrical top a few years ago at Forever 21 and debating if it would look good on. It was a very rare, extremely quick shopping trip where I had no time to try anything on which I literally almost never do…I’m all about trying things on! Some things looks not so great on the hanger and then great on you and vice versa. So trying on for me is a must!

I took a chance and purchased the top without trying it on in the store and am so happy I did because it’s very different, comfy, fun and one of my favorite pieces in my closet! Plus, the price point of 20 something dollars didn’t hurt either ;). I love the bold chevron print, the slits on the sides and the high-low cut. To add some shape I like styling it with a skinny belt under my chest on my upper waist to add some definition (otherwise it’s quite tunic-y) and pairing it with a leather jacket for a cool, edgier feel. With a long cardigan it also looks really cute and when it’s warm enough I don’t even have to wear anything over it!

My shopping advice: Always try things on when out shopping but if you really don’t have 5 minutes to spare then trust your gut when in doubt. Also, make sure the store has a good return policy and you’re golden!

For as much as I love bright colors (really color in general) and bold prints I also really enjoy pairing pretty neutrals together! Stone + Cream + White + Cognac + Gold + Black…sign me up! I love the lace detail on this asymmetrical cream dress paired with the small waffle knit of this stone colored cardigan. Texture and color family mixing adds interest to an outfit. Plus, the look is easily attainable!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful (short) week so far!
