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.
When I first decided I wanted to start a blog it took me a while to figure what I wanted to name it. After what seemed like months of debating I came up with adry on the daily. I picked this name because I wanted my blog to be a representation of my daily life. It’s hard to wear your every day clothes when other bloggers are wearing glammed up looks. But this blog is meant to inspire fashionable looks even when you are running errands or even just hanging out at home. There is no reason you can’t feel your very best even when you are wearing sweat pants.
I have never been much of a sweat pants girl and all the pairs I own have been gifted to me, just like these pink ones that my mom gave me for Christmas. It came with a matching sweater and I fell in love with the set for so many reasons! First off, I am obsessed with the color blush and I adore the subtle gold details. I also really love how they are slim fit and I prefer to wear them scrunched up at the calf. Since it was a bit hot out I paired the pant with an old StyleMint tank and a bralette underneath. I have to say that I am entirely obsessed with this bralette. Not only does it have gold polka dots (score!) but it’s really comfortable and it provides a nice break from wearing a regular bra.
For a casual look like this, I just put my hair up in a high pony and curled the ends a little to add volume. For my makeup, all I did was put on my favorite BB cream, blush, mascara and lip gloss. I also chose to wear my tote purse which is ideal when running errands.
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.
We’ve been experiencing typical spring weather here in LA. It’s beautiful and sunny but the winds are like crazy and a slight overcast will occur every hour or so. It makes it really difficult to pick out an outfit that will be comfortable throughout the day.
I loved this spring dress and winter sweater combo so much that I wanted to wear it every day this week. Disclaimer: This sweater actually belongs to my best friend and it is pretty much the best thing ever because it is super chunky and really warm. She’s amazing and lets me borrow it like all the time… So I decided to wear it over this really soft white dress that has some crochet detailing at the bottom. I had never thought to wear such two opposites but I loved the result! The outfit felt complete with my favorite boots and a statement ring with a dainty necklace to finish off the look.
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.

I last wrote about this sweater in April when I wore it with jeans and an oxford shirt. This outfit is completely different but just shows how versatile the sweater is. Even though this outfit is all black, the stripes and tan color from the sweater create some depth and keep it visually appealing. I felt the outfit had room for some heavy accessorizing so I borrowed this gorgeous Michael Kors necklace from my Aunt Elsa (Thank you!) and also wore my cloche hat from Target. I am excited for the colder weather because now I get to bring out all my hats and scarfs. I have to try really hard not to wear one every single day. But they are just so cute!

I have been wanting leopard ballet flats for a while, especially after seeing outfits like this and this. But one day, as I was passing the shoe isle of Nordstrom Rack, and this pair of Sperry’s just spoke to me! You know that Pier 1 commercials where the products start talking? Well, that’s exactly what I’m talking about. After debating for like 2 hours on whether to get them or not, I decided to buy them and I am so glad I did. Leopard shoes are actually really versatile, and the boat shoe style has been really comfortable while walking around campus. I paired it with my favorite blush blouse that has a pretty coral trim.
Side Note: I am such a freak when it comes to buying a planner for the school year. Not only does it have to be cute, but it has to have ample amount of space to write my overly detailed scheduled and to do lists. This one from Target has been my favorite one ever! So much so that I had to show on here.

One of the reasons I wanted to start a blog was to show young women that you don’t need to shop every weekend in order to coordinate a stylish wardrobe. This is the third time I have red pants and a white blouse and each look was different just by using the right accessories. I wore this outfit on the first day of school and accessorized with gold. I love this simple gold necklace because it adds an element of sophistication. These gold, heart-shaped flats are my favorite because not only are they super adorable, but they are comfortable to walk around in.
As this blog progresses I hope to show you how I wear various pieces and style different outfits. As much as I LOVE clothes and shoes and purses and pretty much anything fashion related, it’s hard to constantly go shopping on a student budget. It’s important to have a solid collection of versatile pieces that be worn over and over again and each time will be a different outfit.
Here are a few versatile pieces that I think every closet should have

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?
