Tank: Old Navy (similar), Bralette: Target, Pants: Forever 21 (similar here and here), Purse: Jessica Simpson
There are obvious items that every girl should have in her wardrobe such as a great pair of jeans, a chambray shirt, a blazer, etc. However one item that I have had for a while and I have found to be very versatile have been these brown cargo pants from Forever 21 that I bought a few years ago. I have been able to dress them up and down and they are really, really comfortable. When I hear the word cargo I tend to think of baggy boy shorts, but I love the skinny fit of these which allow me to cuff them at the ankle for a more casual feel. Since the color is a little dull I decided to wear a bright pink bralette underneath a loose white tank top. My passion ice tea was also helpful in adding a bit of color to this outfit.
HAIR NEWS: Did you notice my hair is shorter? I finally, after two years, got a hair cut. And that’s not all. I ALSO got my hair straightened again. Two years ago I had my hair straightened which I wrote about here. After many mornings stressing about my curly, tangled, frizzy hair I knew it was time to make my life a whole easier and get my hair done again. I use the Japanese method as opposed to the Brazilian and I absolutely love it!
If I am being totally honest here I have no idea where I bought this dress or when I bought it. I THINK I bought it around middle school or maybe early high school. What I love about this dress is its ode to a Puebla style dress. I love the eyelet and embroidered detailing that runs along the hemline, sleeves and neckline. My family is from Mexico so I love anything that play a little tribute to my culture. I paired the dress with some wedges in a neutral color because I wanted to the details of the dress to really stand out here. Wearing my hat and sunnies was the perfect touch for such a sunny day and it really gave this outfit a vacation style look.
Guys, my roots are coming in and for those of you who don’t know, I had my hair permanently straightened almost two years ago. You can check it out in this post. I am quite conflicted if I should re-straighten it or just let me natural waves take over. My hair here is the aftermath of drying naturally and me trying to curl the straight parts of my hair to match my roots. Although I do think my curly hair gives me character, something about my straight hair makes me feel a little more me. I am a very indecisive person so we will see what I end up doing. Opinions?
On to my outfit, I am so in love with this yellow floral kimono. It is just so bright and airy and perfect for summer. Since it was a bit chilly I decided to wear it with an old pair of Forever 21 pants. I think they are about two years old and I have definitely been on the lookout for a new pair because these fit me a little too big. I decided to pair it with a white tank to give a monochromatic look and to allow the yellow to just pop!
And the arm party that is currently going on is my total fave! These three gold bracelets are playful and sophisticated and I basically wear them with my watch like everyday.
Spring is totally in the air and I am welcoming it with open arms. Spring is my favorite season for many reasons, one being that my birthday is in April. I also love it because this is when beautiful flowers start to bloom in the most beautiful and bright colors. I am starting to embrace lighter colors and fresher fabrics as the weather begins to shift. I have owned this blouse for a while now and it is the perfect shade of peach in a very light fabric. And these pants are my new obsession! Not only did I get these on sale on Target BUT they have the most beautiful watercolor print in a ridiculously fresh fabric. They are kind of like work out pants in disguise. This look would not have been complete without my Juicy bracelet. I don’t wear it often because it is rather chunky but when I do wear it I know I am making a statement!
I submitted this outfit to Collegefashionista’s March Madness contest. Click on this link and Like my picture so I can move onto the next round!
Polka-dots and stripes are hands down my favorite patterns. So when my mom saw this sweater she knew it had my name all over it. Since its shorter in length is makes for a great layering piece. Chambray is my go-to when layering sweaters with a bold print. Since the weather has been warming up, I decided to add a strong pop of color. I chose to wear a boot because I felt it pulled from the black print to tie the outfit together. I have also been stacking a lot of gold bracelets together above my watch for a more casual feel. And how cute is Rocky?! He clearly enjoyed being on the blog so he decided to photo bomb my pictures.

Let me tell you how I feel about cold weather… I hate it. Being cold to me is painful and does unflattering things to my body such as a red nose and dry, goosebumpy skin. The only bright side is that I can wear really cute scarves and beanies and most importantly leggings. This outfit is kind of my winter uniform with a few variations depending on the day. The most important item is my mom’s beige cardigan which has made itself comfortable in my closet this season (sorry mom). It’s a thick sweater in a neutral color which basically means I can wear it everyday. Since this outfit is clearly black and tan tones I HAD to have a pop of color through accessories. This beanie has been my favorite for years. I’ve always loved the color blush and the embellishments add the perfect touch of sparkle. And I am also totally obsessed with my new lipstick from Sephora. I can’t wait to buy more from this collection.
PS. The title of this post does not only summarize how I feel about my current situation in this dreadful weather but it is also a small line from the song Colder Weather by Zac Brown Band which is on serious repeat as of lately.
I have a younger brother who is 18 years old and he is easily my favorite person in the world. We are complete opposites but since we are pretty close in age we have always had a special bond that I am extremely grateful for. This bond is so close that he doesn’t stop me from borrowing his sweaters every now and then. There’s something extra comfy about wearing a boys sweater. This gray one has been my favorite for a while and when my brother grew out of it he finally let me have it. I usually wear it with leggings and tall boots, but this time I wanted to dress it up a bit. I automatically went for my new favorite necklace from Charming Charlie. It takes any outfit to the next level! I wanted the gray to pop so I paired it with my white pants and cuffed them at the bottom to show off my brown ankle boots. This outfit was perfect for a date night!

Shirt: Charlotte Russe / Jeans: PacSun / Belt, Watch, Clutch: Kate Spade/ Earings: Forever 21 / Boots: City Classified This outfit is quite simple, just jeans and long sleeves shirt, but I feel with the right accessories it definitely gave it some life. One of my favorite color combinations is black and gold so I couldn’t resist adding gold jewelry and a belt with a gold buckle. I picked out a clutch that would add some color but wasn’t too harsh on the eye. My suede boots finish off the look perfectly by adding some height and dressing it up enough for a casual dinner with my cousin.
Here are a few more great black and gold combinations…
Hi Everyone! Today I wanted to show you how I transitioned my little black summer dress from this post and made it appropriate for fall. By adding a chunky knit cardigan and some booties with socks scrunched at the top you can make any summer dress last into the coming season. I kept the colors neutral in this outfit, but I can’t wait to add colored tights and a textured stripe sweater over this dress for the winter. If you don’t have a black dress that is light weight and preferably spaghetti strap then I highly recommend purchasing one! Trust me, there a tons of ways you can style it and it will be in your closet all year round. I am all about versatile pieces here people!
The weather has barely started to cool down in southern California and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin and like me on Facebook! —>

Today is my first official day as a junior in college. The past two years have just flown by. It’s crazy to think that in the same amount of time I will be graduating. This may sound a bit cheesy, but going to college was a dream of mine since I was a little girl. So to be in my third year is truly a blessing and I thank my parents for giving me this opportunity. I am kinda a nerd at heart and like the beginning of the school year. Walking into Staples and seeing all the new notebooks and pens is nearly as joyful as walking into Forever 21. Yes, I just compared schools supplies and clothes.
On another note, I wore this outfit to celebrate my dad’s birthday. I thought I would give this hat another go before summer ends. How perfect does that coral strip on the hat match the coral strip on the bottom of this blouse? Gosh, don’t you just love it when that happens?
