Every tomorrow

All this outfit needs is some type of leather armor and a sweet sword. 10/10 would ride into battle.

Notice anything in the third picture? Something orange with long thin legs? Yeah, I didn’t see this little friend when taking photos. After I saw this I ran to the bathroom to see if it was still on me. Nope. It’s a ninja.

Crochet peplum with a super soft chiffon skirt. Anything with a short hem and sleeves is my friend in this heat. I respect other Houston bloggers who venture out in this humidity. Is it fall yet?

Coloring inside the lines

I knew this neon skater skirt was a risky purchase. It’s not exactly practical, but it definitely gets you noticed. I don’t like to have a closet full of pieces that I only end up wearing one time. It defeats the purpose of having a style blog.

Shirt: Daily Look (similar silk version)
Skirt: Aeropostale
Trench: American Eagle (similar)
Shoes: Payless
Necklace: Forever 21
Earrings: Express

Pairing neutrals with neon is not exactly groundbreaking, but the addition of a trench matures the brightness of the skirt. Simple heels with this feminine silhouette is perfect for a summer night out, or a sexy date with a Domino’s pizza and the new season of Orange Is The New Black.

Mother’s Day

Cheers to a mom who has put up with me and my journey through school, work and becoming a self-sufficient human being. Not many are blessed with that kind of support, and I am forever thankful for the generous, helpful and loving person she is. She has been my biggest supporter since the beginning of this blog. I wouldn’t be where I am if it weren’t for her patience and guidance through a difficult time after graduation. Thank you, Mom.

Maybe it’s the Mexican in me, but I was so excited when I saw this skirt in Bethany Mota’s recent Aeropostale collection. I know, I know, I’m 25 and essentially wearing junior’s clothes, but it’s just so summery and amazing.

Also, these wedges. I can’t stop wearing them. However, black velvet encasing your feet in 90+ degree weather is not ideal. My feet felt like they were in an oven when we visited my grandmother’s graves. This may be the shoe gods telling me to buy sandals. I have my eye on these little cuties.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms. My child is a 17 pound Westie that refused to poop during his afternoon walk. Animal moms need love too.

I have a new love, and its name is Cambridge.

Top: Modcloth
Skirt: Aeropostale (same skirt in pink)
Shoes: American Eagle
Bag: Cambridge Satchel Co.
Necklace: H&M

I’ve been admiring this Kate Spade Saturday bag for the past few months, but I knew it didn’t completely fit my style. I started researching more about Cambridge satchels because I adore the school bag look. I’ve always wanted a brown leather satchel since the Harry Potter books came out, and was very happy to learn that these bags were created with HP satchels in mind. It’s a bag that I will have for many years and I am excited to age with it.

What are you currently coveting?

Have a great Wednesday and thank you for reading.

What a crazy week it’s been. Christmas was bittersweet due to the absence of my grandpa, and I am now relaxing and taking advantage of the amazing new camera my boyfriend gave me for Christmas.

It is a sunny 66 degrees in Houston today so I wore a dress with NO LEGGINGS. What.

Dress: Pacsun (similar here)
Cardigan: American Eagle
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Purse: Rebecca Minkoff
Earrings: Aeropostale Bethany Mota Collection
Ring: Forever 21

This purse and I are inseparable. My mom gave it to me for Christmas and I think it’s perfect. I am a crossbody fanatic, and this one fits all my essentials. I want one in every color.

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday. 2014 is around the corner. How will you be celebrating? My only wish for the new year is that my family gets a break from grief and that we have more blessings than sadness.

Have a restful Sunday and thank you for reading.

Pour the Wine

I watch a lot of beauty channels on YouTube, so when I found out that Bethany Mota, the youngest of the ones I watch and who I had the pleasure of meeting at Vidcon this year, was releasing a clothing collection at Aeropostale, I knew I wanted at least one thing. I was immediately in love with this wine colored chiffon skirt when I saw it in store.

Blouse: Forever 21 (similar here)
Skirt: Aeropostale
Jacket: Target (similar here)
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Purse: Forever 21 (similar here)
Necklace: American Eagle
Nails: OPI In the Cable Car-Pool Lane

It’s extremely windy today and this skirt is lightweight so I apologize to anyone I may have flashed in the Petsmart parking lot. I expected the Aeropostale clothes to be Forever 21 type quality, but this skirt is very well made and extremely soft.

If you’re interested in seeing the rest of the clothes in Bethany Mota’s collection, please check it out here. She’s young but has accomplished so much and is a positive role model for girls. I am proud to support her because of how much she inspires her viewers to be creative and proud of who they are.

Stay warm and have a lovely Saturday.
