Accessories Are Everything…

Happy Friday, world! 🍸

Surprisingly I’m home tonight working on the blog as I have been neglecting it for the last couple months. It’s nice to take a break from traveling and be home for the next few weeks. Although I can’t wait for my upcoming vacation to Europe. I will be seeking some outfit inspiration, so feel free to share with me your fabulous ideas and suggestions!

I’ve been wanting to wear this outfit for a while. Truth is that it’s just been way too hot in Vegas this summer. I fell in love with this plunging flare jumpsuit on Forever 21, but it’s not one of my most practical buys. The cleavage is a bit too open for my taste, so I decided to style it with a bralette from the VS summer sale. What I’m most excited about, is this belt bag I found at Topshop in London. Talk about shoppers’ heaven!

What are some looks you are obsessed with lately?

Velvet and Pleats

I’ve always loved the vintage vibe pleated skirts have. They look so chic if only they fit right! Being so short, I’ve never been able to find a pleated skirt that creates a flattering silhouette on my frame. That’s why when I found these pleated pants at Bershka in Mexico City, I immediately fell in love. Not to mention the rich color and gorgeous fabric. At first, I thought they would be hard to style, but once I got them in my closet I realized that they can be worn in so many ways.  I would love to wear them to a night out paired with my favorite Ted Baker stilettos and a nice blouse. For a day at the office, a white button-down and a pair of squared heel pumps will do. The possibilities are endless…

Styling a Bomber Jacket

It’s only February and it’s already looking like spring in Las Vegas! I’m ready to celebrate warmer weather with thinner fabrics, brighter colors and better yet – floral prints.

To be honest I haven’t been a huge fan of the bomber jacket trend. It is quite bulky, which isn’t very flattering especially if you’re short like me. However, the silky fabric and floral embroidery of this jacket I recently found on Gilt got me! Not to mention the 40% extra I got on it, and that’s after sale. I couldn’t pass it up after all.

Silk looks great with velvet, so I hope to pair this jacket with velvet dresses or pants. For s more casual look, I would opt for a pair of white skinny jeans or a flared denim.

Fall’s Most Popular Fabrics

Suede and velvet are two really popular trends this fall. From head to toe, you can find these fabrics in dresses, jackets, handbags, shoes and even jewelry. I scored these Zara velvet booties only for about $45 in Mexico City. I love the style because they can give your outfit that polished look! The suede dress is from last fall’s Asos collection but it’s still quite on trend. What I love about it is that I can wear the dress by itself to a party or for an evening outing. For a daytime look I can pair it with just about any top. A turtleneck underneath makes a great fall or wintertime outfit as well.

I hope this gives you some inspiration for your fall styling. Enjoy!

Styling a Plain T-Shirt Dress

The simple t-shirt dress should be one of the summer staples in your closet. For example, this Forever 21 dress I’m featuring today is a great fit because it is a mini but not tight, which gives it classier and elegant look. Also, I love the ribbed detail and the color. Better yet, you can get it for less than $16 here. So far, so good. Although if you’re like me – I stay away from sneakers and casual looks – you might need to get creative and dress it up a bit.

For this look, I opted for a pair of Dolce Vita fringe sandals and this eco-friendly Raven + Lily leather fringe necklace. There is something about fringe this season that I just can’t get enough of! I hope you like it too.

Last but not least, I can’t pass up on mentioning my favorite local retailer Desert Daisy Jewelry. Owned and operated by the very talented Emma Roberts, every piece you find on the website is handmade, even custom made based on your tastes and needs. This hairstick is my go-to item on bad hair days. Not only I don’t have to worry about frizzy hair, but I get tons of compliments on the hairstick. It is pretty unique and can be styled in so many ways.

Summer 2016 is all about tassels, fringe and pom poms – what’s not to love! This outfit is another example of how I style non-expensive items with higher end pieces. These Forever 21 jeans cost less than $18. I love the clean look, and the fringe is so on trend. For this outfit, I am dressing them up with nude pumps and accents such as these Baublebar tassel earrings and handmade colorful clutch from Gypsy 05.

On another note, I finally got the platinum blonde hair color I’ve wanted for so long. It took almost a year to go this light. I’m looking forward to adding some fun pastels into it next time. Special thanks to my talented stylist Amanda, @hairbypinkie.

Spring Is In The Air

I bet we are all ready for spring, and some of us are lucky to experience beautiful weather already. I’m not quite ready to give up on my favorite OTK boots, but I love that I can still wear them while mixing spring pieces. I got this dress at Forever 21 for less than $20! You can find similar ones in various colors around the same price. The cut-out shoulder trend is perfect for transitioning your wardrobe into spring. Enjoy!
