Having social media is a blessing now days. I say its a blessing because we can get inspiration by watching someones youtube video, or in my case, instagram. Street style has always captured my attention, especially the pictures that involve crossing the street. I find it to be my obsession and since I am on instagram, I decided to give it a try for myself.

My attempt to take a stylish picture while crossing the street at the same time was a very interesting experience.

For starters: A) Don’t try this on your own

B) Make sure you have a great outfit on (I’m talking flowy dresses, or something flared)

C) HEELS HEELS HEELS (the key to a great street style photo)

D) Take it on a not so busy street- Safety first πŸ˜€

AndΒ lastly, believe you are street style!Β 

I for sure almost fell twice, BUT i can say that its the most thrilling and spontaneous thing you can do! It gives you that confidence that makes you say “yeah I got this!”

 

 

 

Summer Favorite: Espadrille Sneaker

Hi everyone! I can’t explain the joy I am having right now, and that is all due to shoes! Yes I know sounds funny right, but I have been eyeing espadrille sneakers ever since the day they came out, but of course being a fashion blogger doesn’t always mean I get to keep up with the trends every time they come out. It seems ironic not to be, but in these times who isn’t on a budget?! And all of this to say that my espadrille dream came true thanks to MATTALOU!

This local boutique shop in Long Beach, CA has the most unique items you can possibly ever imagine! And their shoes, well they are love at first sight! I have found great items at affordable prices. The espadrille sneaker was no exception and I immediately had to have it. It was the perfect staple for summer. The comfiness is UNBELIEVABLE! I can literally walk for 3 hrs and not feel sore at all. The best part is that it pairs well with anything I want to wear, and its extremely stylish (of course :)).

How To Pull Off An Outfit With No Jewelry

I am very guilty of not wanting to wear accessories very often. At times I even forget to add jewelry to an outfit I’m planning on shooting, but of course as a mom it can be very tough trying to remember everything when you have 10 min to get ready and on top of that your toddler wants to eat (again!). But thankfully I have discovered 4 easy tricks that can save you much time when getting ready, and not even bother reaching into your jewelry box.

First: Pick a neutral bottom color such as white, beige, or even regular jeans

Second: Patterend blouses or striped shirts definitely will work

Third: Put on sandals with prints on them, or low heels with two toned colors

Fourth: Pick your favorite purse (or do rock paper scissors to decide)

Et Voila! You will have your outfit ready in no time and all you need is to throw on your shades. Easy right!?

How To Style White Culottes

Hi there! The sun seems to be shinning brighter and hotter than ever these days, which of course means we must wear cooler clothing. I don’t know if you have heard this but culottes are perfect for summer! They not only make you look like a different person (more stylish than before) but they guarantee comfiness all day long. I know I am definitely seeing much of a difference each time I decide to wear them instead of going with my everyday jeans, and it is very worth it.

Mixing culottes with flats, espadrilles, or even sandals will make your outfit pop with style. Im pretty sure culottes go with anything and I literally mean anything! You can grab your fave tee and tie a knot at the edge, or wear a loose long sleeve and you will still look like a pro in fashion. I know I am a big fan of fashion and culottes are your summer saviors!

Romantic Summer Dress

After having the stomach flu all last week (I’ve survived!) let me say I am so happy to be back on track. It feels great getting some new content shot and done. But, one thing I am for sure happy about is the fact that summer is finally here! I am a big sucker for beaches, swimsuits, and of course long romantic summer nights.

I have noticed many bloggers posting about their go-to swimsuits that I decided to post my go-to romantic summer dress. It is no surprise that in summer white is a big deal, (sunburns are no fun) which helps keep us cool, but at times it can get boring wearing all white. Dresses for summer usually call for flowers and prints, but this off-the-shoulder dress not only does it have polka dots, it has an A line cut off meaning we can show our legs some love as well!

How To Look Stylish In Low Heels

Affordable Fashion Bloggers

low-suede-heels

Monday has finally arrived and of course this means refreshing our minds with new styling ideas is a must. I have been obsessed with low heels over these past few months (they are just perfect!) and my only blame is….Zara. Oh goodness where do I even begin with this! It became the only thing on my mind due to its classy look and yes, the low inch heel. As a mom, wearing heels can only happen in our dreams, so low inch heels are extremely welcomed any time. But styling them can be tricky and it helps narrowing down what can pair well with them now that summer is approaching.

My number one tip would be to buy dark and light colored low inch heels. Navy blue, and two toned neutral colors can be easily worn with much of what we may have in our wardrobe.

WHO WHAT WEAR low heelsΒ /Β TOMMY HILFEGER shirtΒ /Β MERONA dress shorts

Tip number two: Dressing shorts/skirts , dressing pants (rolled at the ankle), and ankle cropped jeans or skinny jeans compliment the heel structure.

Tip number three: Adding casual t-shirts or knits will keep you from looking too over dresses, and will keep you feeling comfy.

I am still on the hunt for more heels (can’t get enough!)Β , but I hope these tips can come in handy the next time you shop for low inch heels πŸ™‚
