Fall Look Vol. 3

Hi guys!

      This past weekend I’ve been in and out of the hospital, haven’t been feeling so good. Buuut I have the most amazing friends who keep checking up on me and have been taking care of me so Im getting a lot better <3 However I am supposed to stay in bed for a few more days and rest so Im sorry in advance if Im not posting as much this week. I hope your guy’s week started off better than mine;) But anyways, I’ve been dying to show you this look from last week’s shoot…

I was going through my closet to find the perfect Fall Look and trying to mix it with my love for dresses. You know, something cute but weather appropriate. And last week I had picked out this gorgeous floral dress from Lucy Paris and I’ve been dying to wear it! The cut and detail of the dress has a very romantic vibe to it, you know very flirty and fun so to enhance that I decided to pair it with a piece that’s completely opposite, something that would contrast. Of course nothing does it better than a moto leather jacket, I added my black ankle boots and voila! My look is done;) Now as you know, I always go light on the accessories and only wear what I truly love. But lately I’ve been dying for The 2 Bandits collection. Their accessories have a bohemian vibe mixed with a vintage look so of course Im obsessed with them. This is the finished look, let me know what you think…

Hi guys,

        So this week got a lot busier than I expected and all the rush has me on a black mood style. There’s just something about black that makes me feel more productive and whiling to get stuff done;) Plus it converts easily for night plans, so what’s not to love right? I also got inspired by this gorgeous new bag from Nadia Gabriella. This brand is a women’s accessories line that specializes in acrylic design and I just fell in love with it! Everything from them is so beautiful and unique! Plus, the edgy and clean cut design of this bag goes perfect with my new trench coat (my latest obsession btw) so I had to go for it. After that all I needed were my fav black ripped jeans and ankle boots, and my outfit is complete.

Hi guys!

       How’s your Monday?? I am starting my week full of energy and motivated to reach my goals before the year ends! I  have big and exciting plans for 2016 so in honor of that I’ve decided to wear all white… a color associated with clean starts. And so I began with a little makeover to my website! I’ve been thinking about re-designing it for a while and Im very excited about how its turning out. This is just the first of many changes to come and Im so ready for it that Im practically jumping up and down of excitement for the future. Want to live your dreams? then you have to dress for it <3

And speaking of which… I want to share with you this week’s look! I am absolutely obsessed with this Lucy Paris White Eye Knit shirt/skirt. Its the perfect transition look for Fall in my lovely SoCal, where cool days are still settling and Fall is slowly moving in. Besides, who says you can only wear dark colors for Fall? It gets boring right? That’s why I enjoy switching it up a little. And to add the final touch, I went for a red lipstick. It always gives it that fierce and more confident look that every woman needs to get through the day. Try it, I know you’ll love it.

Fall looks vol. 2

Hi guys!

          How is your week going? Mine has been fun and busy with lots of photoshoots and blogger events. And its about to get even better because I get to take a short trip this weekend, Im very excited about that! But for now I want to share this look with you…

My blogger friend Vincent from @myselfvincent took these photos of me this week and we had so much fun! Now, I know its officially Fall but in Newport Beach that means.. nothing! We still don’t get to wear beautifully layered clothes, so I though why not have fun with it? I went for a bold color to keep it fresh, paired it with a white high waisted skirt to make it pop and finished the look with a classic heel to keep it nice & feminine.

Fall Street Style

Hi everyone,

             Hope you’ve had a fun weekend! I know its been a while since my last post but I’ve been traveling so much this summer that I haven’t had as much time as I’ve wanted to. But now Im back and am very excited to share some great transitional fall looks for this new season. As you know, I live in sunny Newport Beach, California and here we don’t really get a season change until December, bummer I know! But that doesn’t mean we cant adopt some of Fall’s best looks. Its all about the accessories and color palette you choose. So in the next few weeks I’ll be posting more looks on how to do just that.

For this week I want to share a day look that can never go wrong and its perfect for this first few weeks of Fall. Wether you’re going to brunch with the girls or have back to back meetings, a simple black jumpsuit will make you look stylish but comfortable all in one. And again, its all about the accessories… So when it comes to shoes, you want to pick something that pops, whether its a different color, a pattern or a strappy heel, the point is to give the look a little extra something. I went for strappy heels because I like the play with lines. For bag I chose one of my favorites, the bucket bag. Its easy to carry around and I like how the color contrasts with the black. And to finish the look I went for my eco-friendly Bamboo Life sunglasses. I recently discovered this brand on one of my trips to Mexico and I loved it!

Spanish Dream

Hi everyone!

           Ready for the weekend? I know I am! And nothing says weekend more than distressed denim <3 This effortless style will take you anywhere from mornings at the Flower Market to Happy Hour with the girls. I wore this to brunch with my friend Karen in DTLA where we spent the afternoon shoe shopping and planing for next events at the end of the month. A girl has to be prepared after all;) And next week its the Yellow Conference which is a fun creative space for women entrepreneurs in the LA area. You learn how to run your own business, meet amazing people and get inspired! As I understand, tickets are sold out but you can still get a live stream pass, anyone interested email at erika@wanderwithlove.co to get a Discount Code.

But getting back to this look.. I decided to combine Effortless with Spanish vibes, so Im rocking my latina roots for this post and Im loving it! Its the end of summer right? lets have fun with it. So wether you’re a girly girl, minimalistic or tomboy just know that you can never go wrong with light denim, its all about how you style it. For casual-chic I like going light on the accessories and focus more on the shoes, it gives it a more clean and confident look;)

Girlfriend Jeans

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

       With the end of summer things are finally getting crossed off my list. My new place is starting to feel like home, all my paper work is done and delivered, I was able to attend all the fun summer events;) and now I can get new projects started! It’s been a stressful couple of months but if I’ve learned anything is that I need some ‘Me’ time, where I can focus on my goals and keep moving forward. I have many plans for next year so that will be taking much of my time, but I’ll try to keep up with my blog posts;)

For now I wanted to share with you my latest find, the Girlfriend Jeans. This fun reinvention has been around for a while, but I had yet to find the perfect pair.. until now! For those of you who are not familiar with the concept, they are the slightly slimmer version of the Boyfriend Jeans. The cut is just above the ankles, still a baggy look only more flattering and… I’m in love with them! To be honest, boyfriend jeans never fit me right but this new version is just what I’ve been looking for. I decided to style it with a button down shirt and wedges to balance out the baggy look;)

Summer Getaway: Cancun

Hi There!

          Hope everyone’s week is going great. Im finally back from my little trip to Cancun and I’ve been dying to share it with you…

This summer I’ve been taking short trips to different parts of Mexico and its been a lot of fun. To be honest, my original plan for this summer was a bit different but things never go as we wish them to. But even though I’ve been really sad about it, I still had the opportunity to visit my beautiful country, so Im grateful for that and I’ve tried to make the most of it  <3 I don’t know if it was the tropical weather, the crystal clear water or maybe the fact that I got to see my family, but somehow this trip felt like a big giant hug. With that in mind, I know that traveling to touristy places can be tricky but since I grew up there I still have a few favorite spots that I love to visit;) For those of you who aren’t familiar with the area I have a few tips:

Isla mujeres is a lovely island to spend the day, I like Lancheros Beach. It has the most translucent water known to mankind, you get to swim with whale sharks which I’ve done before in Cabo and was amazing, now imagine the experience in the clearest water! Plus you’ll find the underwater museum which I have yet to try –if my sensitive ears will allow it.

If you’re going to do the whole natural park thing I absolutely recommend Xcaret! It is such an amazing place, you get to visit beautiful animals, swim in underground rivers and caves, enjoy the beach, get to explore and learn about the mayan town and the night show is a must.. this last one represents Mexico’s culture 100%, I love it! Don’t waste you time with Xel-Ha, its not as big or beautiful, there’s way less things to do and its a longer drive. Xplore is not my favorite but if you’ve tried one park and are looking to continue the experience I would go for this one instead;)

Cenote Dos Ojos is a natural swimming whole with rocky sides, much like a cave. Its gorgeous to explore, bring snorkel equipment, its a bit of drive but its really beautiful! Tulum is full of natural cenotes, so you have plenty of options this is just one of them.

I’ll post more photos and tips in the near future but for now I’ll share with you some of my favs from this trip! With such beauty around me I was inspired to wear all white for this trip to let the beautiful greens stand out;) The first is a beach cover up with embroidered flowers on the sides that I simply loved, its so fresh and comfortable to wear, perfect for a quick getaway. The second outfit is a white linen dress for a day, a lifesaver for any vacation spot you visit;) And the third outfit is my favorite, denim + stripes, this basic goes perfect with a day at sea…

New Discovery: Eye makeup remover

Hi everyone!

          This year I’ve tried to be more conscious about skin care and the products I put on my face. I feel that its really important to use organic products that wont be too harsh on your skin and that will keep it healthy. A while ago I discovered an eye makeup remover that has worked wonderful for my sensitive eyes and I wanted to share it with you;)  I’ve tried so many different products but they always irritate my eyes with all the chemicals they use, so I wanted something more natural. We Love Eyes caught my eye because its 100% plant based, that means no preservatives and its cruelty free <3 I loved that. After using it I noticed such a difference, my eyes didn’t sting for once, it was soothing and I felt better about using a product that is as organic as it comes. Guys never underestimate the importance of taking care of your skin, whatever your age is its never too soon to start and in my experience, the more natural the better!
