There are days as an entrepreneur that are tougher than others. Sometimes you put on a smile even though it’s really the last thing you want to do. But then there are days like these that you just can’t help but smile. I can’t remember the last time I just frolicked around with a bunch of balloons but when I found these pants, they just made me happy and had to be worn for something fun!

The look was inspired by an Oh Joy! post with the cutest pair of crops that were from the Target kids department, but my hips don’t lie, I wouldn’t even attempt it. The pants are actually from LuluLemon (Similar) which means dual usage. (Bonus!) I can wear them from the gym, right out to happy hour as long as I’m not getting to sweaty. They’re so colorful and fun and work easily with just a v-neck tshirt or something simple like this tank from H&M.

Since I have to pick and choose what I buy due to an entrepreneurial budget, I have a few go-to’s in my jewelry box and closet that I wear on a regular basis. This gold cuff by Jules Smith just kind of goes with everything and since it’s summer, I can get away with white sparkly heels more often than not. With this crazy, humid weather, my naturally curly hair doesn’t really want to play nice when it’s down and with Goldplaited‘s braid bar, it’s a win win. Hair is out of my face and doesn’t do all kinds of funky things once I walk outside! The only question is, where do you go to happy hour with a whole bunch of balloons?

Bien à toi,
