Living the Mermaid life

Hello my lovely readers!

         I have new and exciting goals in life… ready? I want to live, breathe and dance the mermaid life. And what exactly does that mean? Did she go crazy? all very reasonable questions.. but no, I have not. Im simply saying I want to live free and happy at the sea… the one place that always held my true happiness. Growing up my family moved every year, but no matter what different city or country we moved to we were always by the beach, my true home. With summer just around the corner all I want is to take a swim in the cool california water, have sand on my toes and live in maxi dresses and beach coverups. And hey, If I could pull off the sea shell look I would wear that too! but since I can’t, a long colorful skirt and leotard had to do <3 for now…

Its been hard shooting lately because apparently June gloom is a real thing, who knew? I sure didn’t, being from Mexico you either get tropical thunder or a sunny beautiful sky, but California has been rather grey lately… but just as I was about to give up, the sun came out! So we decided to shoot at the beach and leave the LA scene for another day. In Laguna there’s a place with beautiful arches so of course my friend and I had to pay a visit. For this look I wanted a long silhouette but full of movement. You should always have fun with the clothes you wear, so channel your inner mermaid and head out all wrapped in color and a free spirit!

Fav Spots: Laguna Beach

Hi there!

         I hope everyone’s weekend was fun. If you follow me on Instagram you already know I spent mine in Laguna Beach. It was so sunny and beautiful that I wanted to take a little day trip so I went with my friend Karen, who was nice enough to take these photos;) We walked around town, had lunch at Cafe Anastasia and visited some of our favorite shops. On days like these I love wearing something cute but comfortable so I decided to wear this sunglow yellow romper, its flowy and the color is so bold that it instantly puts me in a better mood. I’ve been really busy lately with a change of home address thats just around the corner, so its nice to just have a couple of days to relax with a good friend.

With summer style I always try to shop for items that are one full color instead of the typical flower prints because it makes the outfit look more clean and timeless. Plus its easier to accessorize and match with other clothes you may have. Try it, you’ll love the bold statement and you’ll look more fresh!

Thanks so much for reading,
