Purple Hues

After nearly two months without posting, I’m making a comeback in one of my favorite finds from the Zara sale. My work travel and family summer adventures have kept me busy, but you can find all about it on my Instagram here.

If you are short like me, you know the struggle of finding a great fit, especially for jumpsuits. When I tried this romper on, I knew it was a winner. I loved the colors too, and I have been wearing it as a casual outfit most of all. Here, I decided to dress it up with a pair of caged heels and add a pop of purple.

The amethyst leather bracelet is handmade by Desert Daisy Jewelry, and you can find it here along with other unique crafted jewelry items including the hairsticks that I frequently wear. The tassel earrings I’m wearing below are also handmade. I found them in a boutique in Sydney, Australia during one of my latest trips.

I can’t wait to share more Australian finds with all of you, so stay tuned! ❤

Brunching to Bar Hopping in One Dress

Hi all!

I wanted to share another versatile look I wore this weekend. The title already gave it away, but you can see below how I styled this light cut-out dress from Driven Boutique both ways. For daytime, I paired it with flat mules (scored these in Mexico). I love this trend although I’m quite short, and I don’t find them very flattering. Since it’s summer in Vegas already, I wore a denim vest. If you live somewhere cooler, you can opt for a moto jacket instead.

Heels are a must for my evening looks. The corset trend is new to me – this one comes with the dress already, and it’s velvet! I kept seeing similar corsets online for a while, but I wasn’t sure about this trend until I finally tried it on. It does give you a feminine and sophisticated look, so I have a feeling I’ll be wearing it more this season.

I hope you enjoy both looks. If you’re looking for versatile pieces at affordable prices, you can find tons of cute stuff at Driven Boutique you can wear different ways. I personally love the fact that the store only carries a few sizes of each item, so it makes your outfits pretty unique. I’m working on more day to night stories, so stay tuned!

Cheers to a productive week ahead! ❤

Beach Glam With AMI Clubwear

Spring break is almost here, and I sure am looking forward to our Cancun vacay! I have been to Mexico several times, but it will be a first to this destination. I am excited to go somewhere warm and relax on the beach for days.

Regardless of your vacation destination, you will want to pack some fun pieces in your suitcase. I have been looking for the perfect swimsuit for a while, and finally found it! Being a mom, I rely a lot on the one-piece styles, but I still want to look cute. I have been obsessed with the tropical floral prints this year, and this AMI Clubwear swimsuit is just gorgeous! The best part is you can get it here for only $25. Now, that’s a steal!

The fit is very elegant, and paired with this long duster creates a nice silhouette. If you’re looking for a more stylish and glam look, this is a great option.

If you are into the sporty and casual look, stay tuned… I will be featuring another option for those of you. However, rocking both looks depending on your mood is the way to go!

Have a great weekend. ❤

Chinese Flare And a Pop of Color

Hello world!

I know it’s been a while since my last blog post, but I hope you really enjoy this one.

If you follow my posts regularly, you have probably noticed that I’m all about the right accessories. Most of my outfits are really not that special, but it’s the styling that complements them. I got these Chinese earrings as a gift, and I think they make the perfect statement jewelry piece while adding a pop of color. I am also obsessed with shoes, especially heels! I scored this L.A.M.B. pair on Ebay a couple years ago for around $30. If you are a L.A.M.B. fan, you realize this is a total steal! I know they may look painful but I must say that these and another L.A.M.B. heels are the most comfortable ones I’ve ever worn. Now that doesn’t mean I would pay full price for them. 🙂

Finally, this Mango chain leather bag is on sale here. The velvet slip-on dress is also on sale on Mango here.

What is the most important accessory in your closet that you love wearing over and over?

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.

Styling Stripes

Hi loves!

Here I am styling another outfit that I can rock from the office to a happy hour or a date night. I’m obsessed with these AMI Clubwear velvet booties lately. The color is gorgeous, and I can wear them with pretty much anything from dresses to leggings and jeans. I scored this Zara striped dress from last year’s holiday sale. You’d think stripes are hard to pull off, but again it depends how you wear them. I’m short, so I try to avoid thick horizontal stripes. I love the colors of this dress, and the bodycon fit creates a nice silhouette.

How do you like to wear stripes?
