What I Wore: Gems and Jeans

Hello Lovelies and welcome to a brand new week with opportunities you have never had before!

This past weekend was very memorable. My oldest son was in a court for a Quinceanera on Saturday. A Quinceanera is the celebration of a girl's fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America and elsewhere in communities of people from Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.This was my families first experience in participating and attending the celebration. We had a wonderful time. After the presentation of the young lady, the guests were invited to dance the night away. There were moments when my husband and I shared the dance floor with both of our sons and their friends! It was quite the celebration. The fun of it all took us back to our recent holiday at sea on Carnival. On our drive home, we laughed and recapped the evenings events. I love moments like this.

Today, as I continue to relish in Saturday's pomp and circumstance, I had the urge to wear something fabulous, but being that it's Monday, I still want to throw on my favorite Boyfriends. So what do you get when you want to look fabulously relaxed? You get Gems and Jeans!
