ORANGE POLKA DOT

I can’t believe spring is now turning into summer! It’s so exciting because I can’t wait to bring out my bathing suits to play. And speaking of summer, Polka dots are my current obsession right now and I think it fits the whole summer theme, but over all I’m just so into polka dots (please tell me you are too lol).

A recent one Ive been loving is this gorgeous off the shoulder top but with a collar top. I don’t know what it is but it caught my eye and I find it super chic and sophisticated at the same time. Running around after my son and cookie, (our newest family member) is a ton of work and I really need tops that I can just post on and look chic without even trying.

The Perfect Skirt For Spring

While I am enjoying a bit of the gloomy days, I still look forward to the days where the sun will be out and about until the end of the day. I find it hard at times to plan around the weather, especially if Im planning on shooting a nice outfit, because it does interfere with your mood and your skins sensitivity (I’m talking goosebumps on a cold day while wearing nothing but a cute shirt and jeans). But, I must say that I won’t be minding that feeling anymore because I have found the perfect (and affordable!) skirt to go with anything you decide to wear!

This skirt has that velvety feeling and does keep your upper thighs warm. I have only recently paired it with sneakers and I must say its the greatest feeling ever when you wear something super comfy and at the same time it does not look like you just stepped out of the house not knowing how to match your outfit (thats me at times). So, I will definitely keep on experimenting with it and keep bringing you loves some more ideas!

Simple #MomUniform with @JESLA_STYLES

Hi there! I am so excited and happy to announce that I am collaborating with a great fellow fashion mom blogger friend of mine, Jessica Lares (find her on Instagram @jesla_styles). Since mom life can be hard at times, having the time to pick out an outfit each day can be even more stressful. So, I decided to collaborate with Jessica and I asked her to create a whole look dedicated specifically to all the moms out there in order to facilitate the chore of getting dressed. #MomUniform is a real thing and we are here to help solve and inspire the task of getting dressed because all moms deserve to look good no matter how tired we may be 🙂

I hope you enjoy our #momuniform looks!

I love to always look stylish, but there will always be days where I much rather prefer to be in my pajamas and just not go out at all. But I know that if I allow myself to fall into that bad habit, it’ll eventually affect my mood and behavior. So to make it all much easier, I have noticed how easily a trench coat can make a HUGE difference in my appearance. A simple t-shirt with jeans and flats is all you need to finish the look. Easy right?! And for those days where touching up your hair is a no no, try doing a braided pony tail. It works super well and you will be out the door in no time! Try it and you will be hooked on wearing it non stop.

Valentines Day Outfits

Happy Monday!

It feels like its been forever since I blogged! Obviously life happens and we gotta do what we gotta do. Im super excited to be starting off February with some cute styling options for Valentines day, and I know that you will love what I have in mind.

For starters, who doesn’t love a LBD? I know I sure do because its the easiest thing to wear without having to put so much thought into combining and all that extra good stuff that can become tedious at times (mom probs, at least for me). Here I chose two perfect options:

1. The Stylish LBD  (perfect for clubs too)

A Pearlescent Edginess

IMG_9063

Welcome to 2018! A new year of edginess, sophistication , and creativeness. I wanted to start off the year extremely different than the rest by mixing up my wardrobe to not only bring you all some style but a unique sense of combination that you can actually implement it to your daily life, or at least when you go out.

I have found that breaking the rules when wearing a sophisticated item can go very well if worn correctly and minimally. The perfect example is a pearl dress. Pearls are known to be the gem of showing sophistication, so I decided to spice it up and pair it with tights and chunky neutral heels. It says I’m sophisticated but I’m also not taking my self too seriously.

New Years Eve OUTFITS AND PLANS

THIS NEW YEAR I PLAN TO DO 3 THINGS DIFFERENT….

 

New Years Eve is here and I’m so excited to start fresh! I don’t know about you but I’m so eager to get 2018 rollin through and accomplishing 3 tasks I have set my mind to. Over the past years I have noticed how frustrating it would be for me to welcome the new year, especially during the week of my birthday because I would turn a year older and notice how I had not managed to meet my personal goals, and to top it off the new year was approaching and I had nothing to show for.

Of course being young means making a TON of mistakes, but I plan on making this year my last. So, the question is, what 3 things do I plan on doing different this 2018?

 

3 Things I will do different

  1. Set a routine
  2. Invest my savings
  3. Travel

NOW THAT ITS SETTLED , MOVING ON TO OUTFITS

My Top 3 Winter Staples

Winter is almost here, even though here in California it seems more like fall.

I can’t complain too much though because the weather has been tricky and wearing sweaters has been a tad bit dreary due to the semi heat we get. But with that being said, I am more than excited for winter to arrive because I want to wear my top 3 winter staples each and every day.

The first is the TRENCH COAT

It is a must in my closet. It’s the best fashion accessory to wear for any occasion. Layer anything under and top it off with the trench. It’s a warmer indeed.

SHOP THIS TRENCH COAT :Floral trench coat

Next is STATEMENT SWEATERS

One of my favorite fashion trends this year has got to be the statement sweaters. It’s a different approach to an ordinary simple sweater and I find it spices things up a bit.

SHOP THIS SWEATER: Bow tie sweater

Lastly the SHORT DRESS

I love boots, especially knee high boots. I find that short dresses are the key to flaunt those long and tall boots. They both meet half way creating a super stylish combo.
