Why Culottes Are My Best Weapon

a-new-day

Culottes have this je ne sais quoi feel to them. I cannot explain how many times they have saved me from not knowing what to wear to pairing them with such a stylish top, thus equaling to a super chic stylish outfit. They are literally life savers (in my fashion world of course). These cute ones I was able to find at Forever 21 for such an amazing low price!

No matter how often I decide to wear them, they are the only piece of clothing I have no problem repeating. It makes me feel like if I am rocking any type of shoes or top whenever I have them on. Although they are the best, I think I need more in different colors. A girl can never have too many culottes, right? 🙂

Two Sides

orange

While it may be true that a true human can exist, it does not mean that most can do it. This dress reminded me of the importance of all human beings. No one is perfect and we all have two sides.



Our two sides obviously reflect the good and dark side of our nature. I don’t know about you but I personally am sick and tired of being criticized. We all are different and it is okay to admit it and accept it. But one thing we must realize is that without our two sides, we would not be who we are (and we would also be in heaven) which means no PERFECT human beings are on this earth. So enjoy your two sides because that’s what makes YOU. All of course, with precaution. ☺️

The Modern Gladiator

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

Im not trying to be all feminist here and say that women are better than men, but women do deserve a ton of credit when it comes to fighting. Being a mom, I can see everything my mom and my grandma and all moms and non moms out there have had to go through, and yet still little to no credit is given to them.

Women are the rock of all families. When everything else seems to be falling apart, there we are, going to the rescue. But why not go to the rescue for ourselves?

While putting together this outfit I stopped and realized that although those gladiator days are over, we still have our battles to fight. And what better way to fight them than by looking stylish? I believe we all deserve to feel at our best, even when we are at our worst.

Dress up today, tomorrow, and the day after that because you are the modern gladiator ready to fight your problems one stylish outfit at a time 🙂

High rise jeans have been revolutionary this year. I did not understand the concept of this trend, but after finding these white levis on sale at Ross, I immediately understood how all the gals fall in love with the high waist.

If you’re like me, having a child can really change how your body once used to be and high waist jeans are that helping hand when you want to cover up that belly. The other thing is the color. White and black colors do so much for our bodies without us realizing it! Since its summer, white is the way to go, and it not only keeps your legs cool but it helps pop any color tank or blouse you have on, while accentuating your curves.

Do you guys agree or disagree?

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 Style White Culottes

fringe-tank-top

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!

I recently discovered, and maybe you have heard of it, SHE INSIDE. It is the most AFFORDABLE and stylish online clothing store. I have gotten a few pieces from them and it took those few items to get me hooked with wanting to buy more.

I have already started browsing through their items and found such amazing deals on tropical themed clothes! And yes, I have already started adding items to my cart as we speak (hope my hubs doesn’t check the bank account 😀 ).

Any way, below I have listed the items I think we all need to have, check it out and comment below which is your fave!
