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?
I may not always wear joggers or sweats, but since the weather has been cooling down I haven’t really felt like wearing my jeans each time I go out for quick errands. So of course I had to go to SHEIN.com
They have the most affordable and cute clothing anyone could ever ask for. It fits my budget, keeps me happy, and makes me stay stylish. I was completely in love with the jacket and jogging pants I found. They make me feel very comfy and flexible at the same time, which usually is pretty tough for me to find items that make me feel at ease, so this was definitely a win win for me!
While I love to be in plain ol t-shirts, there is just no escaping my love for casual chicness. I love that the weather is finally getting some sense into itself and longs levees are sounding super perfect!
Pairing pajama shirts with classic blue jeans and colorful heels, or sneakers, are what brings my creativeness out. Who doesn’t like to look good and feel creative at the same time 🙂 Its the perfect shirt for casual outings in the city. Just in time for thanksgiving.
You might have guessed the title had something to do with Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas (which is my favorite movie) and it has a significance. You see we are always caught up with trends, who wore it best, who has the best style, … yadi yada, but the true meaning I find in fashion is the colorful life you can have by playing with different vibrant textiles.
This particular set blew my socks off when I was shopping at Target. It instantly gave me that life I needed inside me. It not only goes well together, but it makes you feel at your best by wearing it. Forget fashion, I want to be wearing what makes me feel me again and again. Don’t you?
So much has been going on these past couple of days. With Mexico being hit with a horrible earthquake on Tuesday, I can not help but to feel deeply and immensely sad. Not because my family is from there but because I feel for those who have lost everything, lost their families, lost their loved ones, be it animals, neighbors, colleagues, etc. No one was ready for this tragedy, and actually no one ever is.
In these moments all I can think of is of the ways I can help. Donating and praying is what everyone needs at this moment, even if its a little bit. Fashion can wait. Its what you feel in your heart that matters the most. Sure the world and life goes on, but we can not ignore those who are in need. For now, positive thoughts and prayers are what I will be doing. With a smile on my face because I know Mexico will get back up, not forgetting, but pushing forward. Fashion goes on no matter what, but Im deciding to pause and be silent. The well being of others is far more important.
Color has been hitting me hard lately. It has given me an uplift in a way that is helping me see life in a more exquisite way. Sure, what do I know about life, but Ill tell you that I know far enough to say that each minute spent with your loved ones is far more important than whatever you’re stressing about right now. And yes, bills are important but there is more to life than bills. Anyway, enough about that, lets take a moment to admire the beauty of this colorful striped skirt.
Target sure did do it again! I mean I just sit and stare at my skirt when I feel like I lack inspiration in my life, and boy does it give me life. I just knew I had to have it the second I bumped into it. It’s also great because you can pair it with whatever your heart desires. I used to see life pitch dark two years ago, but ever since then Ive learned that a little color never hurts.
Monday calls for a new wardrobe check. My closet has not been getting any updates recently so a girls gotta so what a girls gotta do lol. That means getting super creative, which is the beauty of fashion. Certain dresses that are not so lengthy are a big plus in my book because it means they can double as tank tops. And with the hot weather staying until September, finding ways to reuse my clothes is on my list. Adding high heels is the glam finishing touch.
