My go-to outfit combination is a pair of loose shorts and a chambray shirt. I got these amazing chevron shorts a year ago at a Charlotte Russe sale and they were only $10! I bought another pair which I wore in this post. My chambray shirt is probably the most worn item in my closet as you have seen me wear it on the blog many times. Even though it is summer I chose to wear my ankle boots for a bit of height since the shorts are pretty short. I think it adds a bit of edge to the outfit as well. I pulled my hair up into a messy top-knot to accentuate my collar. I hardly ever wear my hair up but I really liked my new method for top-knots.
What are your go-to outfit combos? I would love to try!
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.
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.
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter than you probably know that I am madly, obsessively in love with my dog Rocky. We’ve had him for almost 5 years but I still consider him my little puppy.
I took this photos for an upcoming feature on Collegefashionista where Style Gurus take pictures with their pets. I decided to blog these photos since I actually do wear this outfit often. These pictures will appear in a photo album on Collegefashionista soon, which I will link back to this post and on my Facebook page when it goes live.
A little on my outfit, I love how this super glam top complements my casual sneakers. Since the blouse is such a statement piece I felt that pairing it with denim would lose its wow factor. Instead I paired it with my favorite polka-dot shorts and I feel like they definitely let the sequence and the gold stand out more! It’s a really fun look that I can wear to school or even to lunch.
