Hello everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you my favorite go to outfit for a casual day. We all know jeans are super versatile and fun, my favorite are these from Cotton On. They are extremely comfortable and form fitting, with  various kinds of styles. I combined them with this cute top from Forever 21 and a pair of white Stan Smiths. I love this outfit because I can still look put together and comfortable while running errands with minimum effort.

Sweater Dress Look

Hello everyone,

It is officially Fall season and I am stoked. I love how the weather changes, the leaves start changing color and the weather feels a little crisper. Walking down the street and seeing the decorations in the front yards remind me of the festivities ahead. Most of all I love being able to wear warmer clothes even though sadly,  it rarely gets cold enough to wear anything too warm in California. This look in particular is simple and easy to put together to achieve a sophisticated outfit. I am wearing a sleeveless sweater dress from Papaya. My black jacket is from Bebe and my booties are Cole Haan’s. The tights are from Target and the cool thing about them is that they have the sock like look already attached to them so they are a two-in-one piece which is so convenient because it doesn’t feel too bulky.

Don’t Be Afraid, Be Bold

 When I saw this fiery, floral crop top I just knew I had to have it. Bold and beautiful, this shirt is the perfect statement piece. Worn together with a pair of my favorite jeans and my Sam Edelman sandals I feel chic with a touch of bohemian vibes.

The jeans I am currently wearing are from the store Cotton On. I am obsessed with their bottoms because they are very form fitting. Sometimes it is hard find a pair of jeans that flatter my shape. (Jean shopping is definitely a bit stressful sometimes ;)). 

IMG_4852.JPG

My shoes are a pair of dark orange Sam Edelman sandals which I purchased at Nordstrom Rack. I love detailing, whether it is on shoes or clothes and the diamond-shaped silver pins immediately drew my attention. The fact that they are super soft and comfortable to walk in sealed the deal. They were mine for the taking.  On my wrist I am wearing an assortment of multi-colored bangles. I purchased these at Forever 21. The choker around my neck is a dark brown and was purchased at h&m.

I added a thin gold chain around my waist to give my waist a bit of glitz.

Two Pieces: Why I love Them

Happy Saturday loves and welcome to summer! Four days in and I am already feeling the heat. Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite outfits. 

This cute two-piece outfit is perfect for summer. The lightweight fabric is very breathable, and the design reminds me of a tropical island. Two piece outfits are a wonderful addition to your closet because one, you don’t have to search for a matching top or bottom, the combination is already perfect for the regular day to day, and second, you can most definitely mix and match both pieces. I love to wear the top with a pair of jeans and the bottoms with a cute t-shirt.

My accessories are minimal but still bright enough to give my look a pop of color.

My hat is from a small boutique store near my house. I have seen many similar hats in stores such as Target and Marshals, so finding one should not be too hard, as they are quite stylish.

My shoes are Sam Edelman’s from Nordstrom. I love the glittery look. It compliments the look without taking away from the outfit.

My green and gold bracelet is from Fossil. I purchased this bracelet a few years ago, when I instantly fell in love with it. I love it because I can match it with various clothing that I have. The red and brown one came as a pair from the Fashion District in downtown LA. These were purchased a few years ago as well. 

IMG_4772.JPGIMG_4783.JPG

The top is about an inch longer in the back and shorter in the front. The shorts are high waisted, which are my favorite style. Both pieces are loose, but still fitted in all the right places, giving your figure the appropriate curves. This two-piece is from Romwe.com.

Warm Weather is for Summer Dresses

Happy Summer everybody! 

We have been going through a major heatwave here in California and a light, flowy dresses has become my go-to. Nothing is easier to throw on than a light dress because in this heat, the last thing I want to do is overthink about what I am going to wear that day.  This dress in particular is my favorite because of its classic A-line look, floral print, and light and airy fabric. Paired with a pair of my favorite Vince Camuto sandals, and I am ready to start the day.

I saw this dress and instantly fell in love. Collecting pieces that I will wear often is important to me and this dress fit all the criteria. The length is perfect, a little bit above the knee. The print is versatile and the fabric is light.

This pretty black floral dress is from Topshop.

My favorite detail about the dress are the ruched sleeves. The drawstrings pull up giving the sleeves a slight angle.

The slightly open back has a button on the top to allow airflow while maintaining a classy look.

Why Every Woman Should Own a Bodysuit

Bodysuits have become a necessity. A versatile item that can be mixed and matched, dressed up or down. 

Here are 3 reasons bodysuits are worth the investment. 

  1. Convenience: A bodysuit can dressed up or down. Wear with a pair of jeans and sandals when going out for lunch as I am here or dress it up with a skirt and pumps for a night out on the town.

2. Sleek and Classy Look: Isn’t it frustrating when you try to maintain a sleek look but your shirt bulges at the waist giving your outfit an unflattering bulky appearance. I love not having to pull my shirt down every five minutes. Put it on, secure the bottom and you are done for the rest of the evening. No need to adjust anything.

3. They aren’t going anywhere anytime soon: Face it, A-line figure looks are always in.  This look is versatile enough to wear anywhere, whether in your home town or if you go traveling out of the country. The best part is, bodysuits do not take much room in your suitcase, because it is so easy to roll them up without the fear of wrinkles.

February Faves

 

Happy Thursday !!!

With February halfway over, and thankfully so in my opinion (as I am ready for spring), I wanted to share a few of my favorite items this month. The reason I love them so much is because they are very versatile year round, but especially so in the colder winter months. Each item brightens up my day in their own way. We all have that special someone, that long lasting mascara, or the favorite lipstick, well I have several loves and I will explain below each image.

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet

Dior/$60.00

This perfume has got to be my favorite of all time. A sweet delicate flowery scent, it is so versatile that I use it for both daytime and evening wear. The bottle comes in two sizes, this one being the smaller of the two, but it still lasts me about eight to ten months. I love the little bow tie on the lid of the bottle. It is very feminine and just makes me happy. This particular perfume I purchased at Nordstrom, but they are also available at Sephora, Macy’s and Ulta.

Be Legendary Lipstick

Smashbox/$21.00

Although Valentine’s Day is over, these two lipsticks from Smashbox are a perfect addition to your makeup collection. These classic colors are superb for a date night or dinner with a friend. It gives the perfect pop of color with any outfit.

Better Than Sex Mascara

Too Faced/$23.00

If you are looking for an amazing mascara this is it! I usually use two different types, but with this single one, my lashes look perfect. It is on the pricier side, but I can definitely say it is worth it. I use only about two coats, and I am left with luscious, thick lashes. I also love that it comes in waterproof form too, so on the nights when I don’t want to carry much with me, I know my lashes will stay close to perfect all night long.

Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer

MAKE UP FOR EVER/$36.00

I am a huge fan of Make Up Forever products in general, but this bronzer was a great investment. It is such a pretty, yet subtle color. Although it is a bit difficult to get it on the brush at first due to the texture, as you work into it, you get a natural, beautiful glow. It is waterproof, therefore will last you all night whether you go out dancing or to a movie.

 Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator

NYX/$7.50

If you are looking for the perfect glow, you’ve found it. Inexpensive yet effective, this illuminator will give you a natural, healthy glow. And a little bit goes a long way. All you need is a dab, extending the life of your illuminator for many months. Definitely a keeper!

Radiant Creamy Concealer

NARS/$30.00

This creamy NARS concealer in the color Ginger is a part of my everyday makeup routine. It provides medium to full coverage and is light enough to wear on a daily basis but covers enough to not need foundation. I love that I don’t feel any heaviness and it is very easily applied with its brush. It is paraben, sulfate, and  phthalates free so I feel comfortable applying it daily.

British Rose Instant Glow Body Butter

The Body Shop$/21.00

This body butter is literally heaven on earth. I cannot describe how ecstatic I am with this particular product. Not only does it smell delicious, but the texture of it is so smooth and lustrous, I simply count the minutes until I can apply it. It hydrates my skin quickly without leaving any sticky residue leaving my skin glowing all day. It comes in two sizes as well, which is perfect in case I want to reapply it, I can leave the bigger one at home and carry the smaller container in my bag. I highly recommend this body butter.

Smooth Affair Facial Primer

 jane iredale/ $48.00

I am in love with products that smell like grapefruit. This facial primer is one of my favorite items from jane iredale because it contains many natural ingredients such as grapefruit extract, thus the lovely smell, Honeysuckle extract which purifies the skin, aloe, which smooths the skin as well as many other ingredients. What I love the most about this product is being able to use it as a face primer before I apply makeup, as well as a moisturizing agent at night.

Pro Amazonian Clay Palette

tarteTarteist™/$53.00

This palette is probably my new favorite. The palette contains an array of 20 shades which vary from neutral to glam. The amazonian clay generates vibrant, pigmented shades which are a perfect combination for blending. The colors are beautiful and can be used for a day look or glammed up for the evening with the bold colors on the far right.
