Polka Dots For Summer

I am so happy I can wear dresses everyday again! Specially midi style, they are so fun to wear! And Target has been coming up with new and exciting collaborations with some of my favorite brands. Like this dress I’m wearing, it’s from the Who What Wear collection that was launched for Target Style. A couple of weeks ago I got invited to preview the new line and I fell in love with every piece! It’s beautiful, affordable and perfect for Summer!

I know I don’t wear polka dots that often, but I just loved this design! The off the shoulder detail and midi length caught my eye right away, so I’ve been practically living in this dress ever since. And I can’t wait to show you all the pretty pieces I got!

My i.am + BUTTONS Experience

A couple of months ago I got the chance to meet up with will.i.am ‘s team and see all the amazing things his tech company  i.am + is working on, including their latest launch the wireless earphones BUTTONS. And they are amazing! Right away I loved the design and got excited to work together to introduce you guys my new favorite tech + fashion accessory all in one!

As a blogger and a woman who loves fashion, I always make sure my style is reflected in everything I wear —I’m saying truly down to the smallest detail! So it makes sense that someone would come up with earbuds that actually look good with your outfit right?? Well here comes BUTTONS to save the day…

That said, I also spend a lot of time on my phone so even thought I love listening to my favorite songs, it’s not just about the music. I mean a girl has to work right?? And that’s why I truly love these. I can take calls on them too, which comes in handy when I’m running around all day, from shoot to shoot and I have scheduled call meetings in between —to which I never get used to lol (that’s just my personality) but this definitely helps the process go by smoother. Plus, the sound is crisp clear! So it’s a win-win.

All in all I can’t help but love my BUTTONS. And I had the best time shooting with the team. We met up at some of my favorite places in LA, we shot a quick video, took some fun photos and they were all incredibly nice and easy to work with! Which I always appreciate, it made the experience even better. ***Also, I had posted the video we did, but I had some issues with it loading on this page, so I will post it again on a separate one… stay tuned! But I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did and please let me know what you think!

As always thanks so much for reading!

Blush For Fall

Being caught in between the end of Summer and beginning of Fall leaves me wearing light dresses with ankle boots, but I don’t mind it at all! I do however wish I was living in NYC to be able to wear all the fun season clothes, specially now for Fashion Week! Has anyone else been following any of the runways? I am on high just watching these first ones, can’t wait for my favorite ones to come! But for now I am wearing one of my favoite colors these days blush and light grey. Simple and casual, but also just the right combo to get me through the day.

 I am in love with these tones right now, they go with pretty much everything and they are both great colors to transition from day to night! So you will probably see me wear them more often in the next few weeks. Hope you liked this outfit and as always thanks for reading!

Sail Away With Me

I can’t believe Summer is basically over! I’ve been waiting for this for a long time, partly because I don’t have ac in my home and partly because I miss wearing my beautiful boot collection (can’t help it, sorry). But now that its around the corner, I figured I would welcome the new season with a “Sail Away With Me”.. to Fall-post.

I’ve been reflecting about how time keeps going by so fast and thinking about how many steps we’ve actually taken to move forward with our dreams. It’s easy to get distracted with life, I know I’ve been there a few times! But I don’t want to lose focus, I want to always keep moving forward. A new season always brings a fresh start and we should make the most of it, right? However, if you’re not feeling the drive think about how much your life can change in a year. For example, when I thought about how much mine has changed from exactly a year ago, I felt unbelievably happy! Not because everything went by so smoothly, on the contrary.. I made big life decisions about where I wanted to live, had some health issues to deal with, then had personal decisions involving my family, but then more happy things came along! For instance I had to get serious about how far I wanted to take this blog, which to me was very exciting. Also a guy with the kindest heart came into my life, he later became my boyfriend and is now someone I love very very much. I look at this entire year and I can’t help but feel very grateful, for the good things and the bad! All of this in one little year so think about the possibilities if we only focus and work towards what we want, the rest always find its way:)

So whether it’s a new challenge or an exciting new path for the blog, I want to welcome all change I want to make the most out of what’s left of this year and it will be okay because I will be wearing a beautiful hat on my head to keep me grounded and beautiful boots to take me where I want to go, all in style of course! A girl has to look nice even when she’s busy. Now, my wardrobe won’t change dramatically next week because lets face it.. I live in sunny So Cal. But in the coming posts I will be talking about transition looks, the must-have items for Fall, more blogging tips and many more fun things! So follow along..

To welcome Fall season I decided to wear a white jacket and my favorite brown leather booties. I like pairing these with white shorts to balance out the look, I think it keeps it more casual and adding a straw hat makes it more fun!

Effortlessly Cool

Denim and a white Tee is the  definition of effortlessly cool. It’s a classic that has survived over decades and decades of fashion trends and that I believe will continue to be part of our wardrobe for many more years to come! The key to this look is to find the perfect fit in your denim and my go to of course is Levi’s. No matter what body type you have this iconic brand has most likely made the right fit for you, you just have to hunt a little but that’s the fun part! Next is to find the right Tee to pair it with, I like my T-shirts as soft as they can be and not too baggy. My absolute favorites come from this brand called AMVI, they are vintage inspired high quality basics and let me tell you I love them!! I first found out about them when I first started blogging last year, they sent me a couple of their basics to try out and I became obsessed. I even bought my boyfriend a couple because they are so comfy to wear, the quality is so good and that is 100% my true feelings about the brand. Of course you can pair it with any white Tee you know and love:) The point is get the right fit for you.

I am wearing the high-waisted, straight leg with classic wash and raw hem Levi’s. I specially loved that last part because the raw edges make it more interesting! And since I was going with the classics, I could not forget my favorite Raybans as well. You’ve seen me wear these way too many times but I cannot get over them, sorry!

Midi For Summer

With this Summer heat I try to make the most out of wearing dresses. It’s so much easier to slip on a dress and head out the door than to style a whole jeans, or short and top combo am I right? Besides, sooner than we think Fall will be here and it will be all about layering. So for a while now I’ve been obsessed with midi length everything! Whether its dresses or skirts, I feel like it’s the most flattering look and so easy to wear. The midi is the dressier version of the maxi dress, which I also love and will be posting about soon! But the trick to this style is to wear it with heels so it helps balance out the height issue. If you are short wear it with very delicate scrappy heels, if you’re tall you can get away with a chunkier heel like mine. Take a look!

Whichever way you decide to style it, I am a firm believer that this is your best friend this Summer! You can see me wear the midi style in previous posts like Here and Here. As you can tell, I’m a fan <3 What about you guys, what are your style go to’s this Season? I would love to know.

Belts + My Favorites

This Summer I’ve been loving belts, I have them in every color! But last week I found this beautiful white leather one at Planet Blue’s new Newport Beach location and I had to have it! I love the black and brown belts but this one caught my eye because of how thin it is, therefore the double buckles don’t make me feel too chunky. Personally I’m a firm believer that accessorising your outfit is the key to make it interesting and doing it with belts can make it a lot more fun! Honestly, its things like this that can make an outfit go from simple to stylish. So whether it’s a romper, dress or your favorite jeans, a belt will always go perfect with it!

I paired it with all black because I love the contrast but feel free to mix it up! A white belt will pretty much go with everything. But if you’re not feeling the white, at the bottom I’ve shared some of my favorite belts of the season <3 Take a look..

The Little White Dress

Summer is always the most awaited season! Specially here living in SoCal, people tend to gather more often since its so nice out and life just gets more fun. I really love it, but I also find myself missing my favourite little black dresses. There’s just something about Summer that makes me feels like the LBD is not quite right. But what about last-minute events, drinks with the girls or date night with your guy! I never realised how much I relied on it. So I did a little hunt and I have found the perfect summer version! It has cap sleeves and open fishnet insets to accent the waist line, but the thing I loved the most was the crew neckline. Honestly, the last thing you want it is a low neckline when the dress is already short, so this was exactly was I was looking for!

I also love the mix of fabrics on this dress, I think it makes it more fun! I paired it with nude stilettos, wore my hair wavy for effect and I’m ready for a fun evening out <3

Bomber Jacket Yes Or No?

This summer I am very open to try new styles! I want to give my closet a a bit of a spin and this Spring/Summer Bomber Jackets have made a surprising come back. And I say surprising because I never and I do mean literally NEVER thought I would try this trend. Bomber jackets always bothered me to be honest but with the thought in mind of trying something new and getting out of my comfort zone for you guys, I’ thought I would give it a try! And guess what?? I loved it. It’s such a lovely and fun look to wear. I particularly loved this one because of the flower print which you guys know I’m all up for and the lines along the sleeves are a nice touch!

Bomber jackets have gone from a bulky silhouette with heavy fabrics, to a more slim style with more delicate materials. You see them in silks and satins or with prints like mine. And how you style it is up to you! You can either throw it on top of a little black dress for a night out or you can style it the way I wore it, with your favourite jeans and sleek heels. The point is to make it your own. I added a bright pink lipstick to keep it fun and I’m ready to go.

Comfy Style Done Right

Guys sorry for the lack of posts this past week! I have friends visiting from out-of-town and I have been showing them around and enjoying their company. But I’m back now and ready to start the week with a fresh blog post!

Now, I’ve always been a firm believer that comfy doesn’t have to look ugly. Even if you have a busy day you can still look chic! I chose a nude pleated hem jacket, with a strappy beige top and midi twill pants. I swear it is like wearing pajamas! I know all three items are  very loose and flowy but with the mix of different lengths (meaning the oversized jacket and the shorter pants) it balances each other out. Now the shoe situation… I am a fan of heels, so Im sorry but I feel like heels are a must no matter the mood! And these are actually comfy. Plus they are the finishing touch, after all it is a work day! You cant really add sneakers right? So just choose your comfiest heels and meet your week goals <3 Let me know your go to’s on comfort…
