NYFW INSPIRED IN LALA.

I received compensation from Dr. Scholl’s® to write this post. All opinions are entirely my own.

#advertisement One day, I plan on going to New York Fashion Week! Until then, I’m having fun getting dressy in LA.

I get very inspired during NYFW by all the looks going up and down the catwalks and the streets of New York. It’s during this time, I want to make a little extra effort to trade in my denim jeans for a dress and sneakers for a pair of heels.

Seeing all the cute heels on heels, I have no excuse to not wear my heels out and about. What makes it even more inspiring and literally, even more comforting, are Dr. Scholl’s Stylish StepTM Ball Of Foot Cushions for High Heels. They are life changing! Personally, that’s the part of my feet I struggle with most, when wearing heels. These insoles give me that support and feel super cushiony.

Mike and I had an evening of drinks and dinner. We had just got back from Europe and we were still on that holiday festive mode. I wore my flirty polka-dot dress with a pair of black and white heels to go with it. My Dr. Scholl’s insoles gave me long lasting comfort through the night. I was even ready to get “Along Came Polly” dancy! I really want to know where in LA I can find a good underground salsa dancing place!? The insoles had me moving and swaying comfortably for sure. Instead, we decided to go home and binge-watch some shows. To complete my look, I accessorized my outfit with some feathery lavender earrings and a mini chained handbag to match.

The insoles are super easy to apply. You simply peel and attach to heel. The insoles are placed inside the shoe towards the front of the heel (ball of foot area). Another big bonus is that they’re clear in color, definitely not visible or obvious. They’re definitely discrete so you don’t have to worry about a pop of color popping out! You can find them at Target in the foot care aisle near the pharmacy. You can save on Stylish StepTM at Target with this offer: here

It is definitely possible to look stylish, looking like you stepped out of NYFW, yet be comfortable! It’s the combo we all desire- to be glam and comfy. Wearing my heels on LALA just got even more fun!

REEBOK: VERSATILITY.

If there’s one look that always looks stylishly put together, makes you want to be healthy and active, and is comfortable…it’s one good work-out gear. One of my current favorites is my Reebok leggings and their latest PureMove sports bra.

For me, this look is my kinda look to run around LA and get things done! I personally feel cool, productive, and I’m ready for any sort of physical activity like hiking, going to the gym, running, or taking one of my work out classes. On this day, I was out and about in LA catching up on errands, as the sunset was approaching, I went for a last minute hike. I honestly thank my Reebok uniform for that energy!

Reebok is being a game changer with the release of PureMove. They’ve developed a bra that is both responsive and versatile enough to keep up with all the activities through a groundbreaking new fabric technology. It honestly feels like a second skin, so comfortable I forgot I was even wearing it. That’s pretty much the dream when it comes to sports bras which are usually so tight and uncomfortable. I also love that this sports bra is made for all shapes and sizes. They have 10 unique sizes available and I’m telling you… it is made for HER! Versatility at it’s best! Not just fashionably but also actively.

A DAY IN CAMBRIA WITH MY CLARKS.

*This blog post has been sponsored by Macy’s, all opinions are my own*

What a beautiful day I had in Cambria, CA. This city is located up north, near Hearst Castle. Although I went for a couple days, on this very day, I was able to put on my cozy pair of Clarks shoes with a cute outfit and really got to explore the city!

For this trip, I couldn’t wait to wear my new Clark shoes I got from Macys. I wanted a sandal that was both comfortable and stylish – my kinda combination! The Deva Janie sandal comes in both black and brown colors. I went with the brown option because I think this is a perfect neutral color that goes so well with colors and Summer staples. Macy’s always has the latest and so many shoe styles – love it!

Mike and I started our day at this cute little Italian place on the main street for lunch. We then walked down the road for a coffee (where I got the sweetest compliment from the sweet barista), and took some photo-ops along the way. From there, we headed up to a winery. We did some more walking around the winery and even came across a cute goat! We sipped, danced, and enjoyed the sunset.

I felt like I had the perfect pair of comfortable shoes to explore yet still feel sexy and chic at the same time on these romantic outings. I styled my Clarks with a hat, denim jeans, and a colorful striped button-up. These shoes go so well with bold pieces and colors.

My day in Cambria was so memorable because what I wore and just living it up in my Clarks really set the mood for a perfect day of exploration and romancing!

TRENDY SWIMWEAR FOR EVERY BODY TYPE.

We’re all looking for that perfect piece of swimwear to flaunt in the sunny months ahead. There are so many different styles out there, but it can sometimes be hard to find the right one for your body. I’ve compiled a little guide for different body types, that will make you feel confident on the beach.

For the Petite Girl, it is all about elongating the figure – I should know a lot about this one 🙂 A bikini with high-cut bottoms will lengthen your legs while horizontal stripes will make you appear taller.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1528078926939?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

For the Tall Girl a bikini with hipster bottoms or a classic-cut one piece accentuates the torso while a high-cut and high-waisted suit will compliment your legs!

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1528078926939?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

For the Curvy Girl, reach for a high-waisted swimsuit to accentuate your waist.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1528078926939?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

For the Larger Busted Girl, try something with underwire in the top or wider straps to support you.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1528078926939?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

For the Smaller Busted Girl, bold prints and ruffles with create the illusion of a curvier top-half.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1528078926939?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

For the Pear Shaped Girl, plunging necklines or cool, upper cutouts will highlight your trim upper body.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1528078926939?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

For the Athletic Girl, go for a suit with some ruffles to highlight curves or choose one with flirty cutouts.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1528078926939?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

TUESDAY TOP THINGS: VERSATILE SCARVES TO LOVE!

Who says you can’t wear a scarf during warmer days? Scarves are a staple fashion item that you can wear all year long! Wearing lighter linen, cotton or silk scarves for the summer days will definitely lighten up your outfit. Scarves are so versatile that you can have different ways of wearing them like, on your wrist, hair, bag, neck and my fave… as a top!

To make your scarf a tie scarf tube top, here are the steps! First, you need a big square shaped scarf, grab the edges and fold it into a triangle (depending on the size, you may have to fold it twice to get the desired length for the top). I only had to fold it once since mine was a size small-medium. Put it around your back, hold the edges and wrap it to your chest. Adjust it so it covers up your lady bits and just tie it two times with a basic knot in the front. Voila! You’ve made a fun top!

These are my top five sexy-chic scarves this Tuesday:

  1. Pink Paisley
  2. Rose print
  3. Pink Geometric
  4. Palm Print
  5. Stripe with floral pattern

 

For this outfit of the day, I paired my scarf top with these black boho pants with the lace detailing to contrast the bright colors of the top. I also put on a subtle pink lipstick to not take away its shine. Lastly, I added some gold accessories for an elegant, classic look.

TUESDAY TOP THINGS: GET THE ROCKER CHIC LOOK.

Happy Tuesday! What I love about Fashion is that you can express how you’re feeling through how you dress. On this day, I was feeling a little bit edgy and classy at the same time! So for today’s top things, I picked my favorite items for my Rocker Chic look. The Rocker Chic style never goes out of fashion, these kinda tees are here to stay. That’s why it’s an essential to own a band t-shirt! You can wear it however you like. I paired mine with a soft skirt and cute accessories. You can have fun accessorizing it. I sure did!

  1. Bag  – This gorgeous bag with fringe will definitely add some fun to any outfit style you pair it with!
  2. Band t-shirt – Everyone needs a band t-shirt in their life! You can wear it for an errand or dress it up with a skirt, like I did.
  3. Sunglasses – These rose gold tone sunglasses are essential for summer! I picked these to pair with outfit to add a little bit of chic.
  4. Wrap skirt – Wrap skirts are definitely one of my favorite trends right now! It also hugs my figure just the way I want it.
  5. Earrings – These beaded hoop earrings are not your ordinary hoop earrings because of the beaded detail. It gives a vintage vibe for your look!

I’m excited to say that every Tuesday, there will be a post on “Tuesday Top Things” – this will include personal favorites and all things trending in fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. Welcome to my very first post and be sure to check in every Tuesday fore some new exciting things and inspiration! 🙂

The sun is shining and there are flowers blooming everywhere. It’s the perfect time to grab brunch with friends and I always look forward to putting together an outfit to go out! All you need are a few staples that can be paired with everything. I’ve compiled some of my favorites that I’ll definitely be wearing the next few months!

1. Straw Bag: This fun straw bag with tassels and mini pom-poms on the side will add a little fun to any  brunch outfit!

2. Red Dress: Having a red dress in your closet is a staple for the summer. This red wrap dress with a mini daisy print on it is so cute!

3. Sunglasses: Sunglasses are the perfect accessory in the warm months coming up. I love these beige glasses because they give off a fun retro vibe!

4. Wedges: Black wedges are essential to dress up an outfit. These black ones from Steve Madden are some of my favs!

5. Gold Choker: This necklace is super trendy right not! It’s a choker but has a layered element to it too!

For this outfit of the day, I decided to create an outfit around this red cutout dress. The cutouts on the front add a little edge to the outfit, so I added some more girly accessories to balance out the look such as the black espadrilles and the red and black tassel bag. I grabbed an oversized jean jacket and a pair of retro oval shades to complete the look.

 

PALM SPRINGS: STAGECOACH.

First time to stagecoach music festival was a success! I didn’t know what to expect yet I knew I was open to try something new this year and I’m so glad I went with it. While I’m a fan of some country music, I feel like I got even more into it while there watching the live music! Coming up with my outfits for the festival was a lot of fun!

I’ve always loved a little western-cowgirl style and even outside of stagecoach, I love incorporating this style to my outfits. I’ll never forget when I got my first pair of white boots with fringe when I was eleven years old (I think I would still wear them now – they were that cute from what I recall :). I think my love for this style also came from my mom, who used to wear vintage vests with boots, and would take us horse back riding.

I went to the festival for 2 days. For my two looks, I wore my white ankle western boots that I did not want to take off because I just felt so wildly good! First look, I wore a high-waisted skirt with a tube top, and of course hat! The fringe dress-top I threw over my outfits, was my statement piece to complete this look.

For my second outfit, I went with a little more color. I wore an orange button-up dress with a gold/silver brown belt and white/silver bag to balance the color.

THREE TIPS TO MAKE YOUR LEGS SHINE.

This post was sponsored by Gillette Venus as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Having smooth, strong, and moisturized legs gives me a higher level of confidence. When I give my legs the love and care they need, I can feel it! I like to be ready for anything, not matter where I go. Whether I go to the gym, an event, date night, or deciding on what my outfit of the day will be, getting out of my comfort zone and wearing something that shows more skin is easier when my legs are smooth and silky.

I like my legs to be ready for anything and all my Outfit Of The Day’s. They play a big role in my decision making as far as getting out of my comfort zone and putting on something that shows skin.

Seeing more denim shorts and lots of pretty dresses on the racks, especially while spring is on the horizon, excites me. I’m currently preparing for a big Europe trip for the summer and one of my goals is to make sure my legs are shinning!

These are my three tips that have helped me keep my leg game strong and confident:

1. Choosing the right razor. I’ve been using Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor for my new leg skincare routine. It’s been leaving my legs flawless and extra smooth! This razor is a beautiful design featuring the brand’s first made-for-women metal handle. It has a strong grip that is better for wet conditions and 360˚ Ribbon of Moisture technology to help it glide nicely to protect your legs. Plus, loving the luxe look to it! I think these are key features for a razor. There’s nothing like smooth legs that are ready to slip into any outfit and go to any destination! It’s amazing to be able to have a dependable Gillette Venus razor that keeps up with my busy lifestyle. Super convenient having my new fave, the Gillette Venus razor, available at Target and Target.com

2. Body skin oil. In addition to body lotion or moisturizer, I’ve been applying before the lotion, body skin oil on my legs. It really helps with keeping my skin nourished and hydrated. I’ve seen a difference since I’ve added this to my leg skincare routine. It gives them a nice glow.

3. Take a hike. A good hike is also beneficial to taking care of your legs. I find my legs getting stronger and nicely defined. This is very good for the legs, because you’re using all your leg muscles and you can feel that burn! This is something that has helped me to keep my legs shape.

Hope these three steps will help make your legs shine bright! Don’t forget to pick up the Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor at a Target! xx

OOTD + TOP TEN STRAW BAGS YOU MUST HAVE.

Outfit of the Day – plaid, off the shoulder, booties and a straw bag, all with a little edge! The neutral tones balanced the plaid skirt out. The neutrality of the sweater and booties also made the edgy chain a little more chic. A plaid skirt has versatility and I don’t see this look going away!

A trend that I’m loving are straw bags. Although this style of bag has been around, I’m seeing more and more hot options this season. I’ve put together my top ten straw bags you must have below!
