Hey Loves!

“The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old but building the new.” -socrates

Fall is finally here and I couldn’t be anymore excited. I did some shopping this past week and I couldn’t help but notice all the fall styles that are officially out in stores. On my shopping list was a pair of burgundy booties and I found the perfect pair at Zara. These booties featured in this look are super sleek and chic. I can wear them with just about anything. I also love how they have a sliver heel. I don’t know about you guys but a sliver jewelry kind of girl so these burgundy booties were a must!

I know that I was M.I.A from my blog for a while but that was because I was in the middle of starting a new position at one of my favorite retail store’s corporate offices. Now that I am official back in the groove of things, I will be blogging a lot more. To kick things off I wanted to share with you guys this fall look I put together. I paired my denim dress that I bought during the summer ( I like to buy pieces that can easily transition from season to season) and paired it with a cream and black tribal blazer. I added s statement necklace for some fun and topped off the whole look with my burgundy booties and a burgundy lip. Below are some more pictures of my look. Enjoy!

The San Francisco Uniform


Leather Jacket: American Eagle
Top: Nina’s
Jeans: Banana Republic
Booties: Target

Hey loves!

Such skimpy apparel doesn’t meet San Francisco’s style standards. For starters, the weather is so unpredictable year round. People who have never been to San Francisco might imagine it to be like the rest of California: warm and sunny all year. But think again. Since San Francisco is located on the bay, it gets brutal wind that keeps temperatures low, despite sunny days.

For the most part, the city’s style can often be pretty laid back. Even at nicer restaurants in San Francisco, you can get away with a pair of skinny jeans and a nice top. My go to outfit for just about everything is a pair of jeans with a nice blouse, a chunky sweater (if it’s cold out), a leather jacket, and ankle booties. Add a scarf if it’s extra chilly or a statement necklace if it’s not. I like to call this the San Francisco uniform, because you can catch just about any women from any age group sporting this look year round. In the summer I like to substitute my casual black leather jacket for a vibrant color, while still remaining warm enough for San Francisco’s unpredictable weather. Below are some more photos of my look, enjoy!

Choker Trend




Dress: Forever21
Choker: Forever21
Heels: Zara

Hey loves! Today I want to talk about one of summers hottest trends “The Choker”. I’m sure you guys have been seeing them everywhere. Chokers can be worn in so many ways to complete the perfect outfit. They are the perfect minimalist and chic finishing touch. You can even layer them on for a more dramatic statement piece look. Lately I’ve been wanting to wear a choker with every outfit. I feel like it can make the most simple outfit look cool and edgy, so I’m trying to restrain myself.  This trend will defiantly carry on into your fall wardrobe so make sure you get your hands on a cute one or two! I wore this look to a dinner with some old friends from high school. I found this super cute spaghetti strap dress at Forever 21 for just $12 and thought that a choker would be the perfect chic 90s touch to complete the look.  Below are some more photos of my look, hope you guys enjoy!

Let Freedom Ring!!


Dress: Zara
Sunnies: Wish (app)
Heels: Banana Republic
Flags: Target

“Freedom lies in being bold.”
-Robert Frost

Hey Loves! Since the fourth of July is in a couple days I decided to be a bit patriotic and dedicate a style post to the holiday. Whether you’re attending a BBQ, celebrating on a yacht, or snuggling up with your bae during a fabulous firework show, the fourth of July is all about showing off your patriotic pride by layering on the red, white and blue. This year be bold and different by staying away from the usually American flag tees and cut off shorts. Although the color palette is restricted there are still unless styling possibilities!

For this look I went for a glam approach to the holiday. This is something I would wear if I was spending the Fourth of July at a fabulous party in the Hamptons or a phenomenal party on a yacht (Can a girl dream or na? lol). I choose this pretty white dress as the main piece in my outfit and styled it with red fringe heels ( they remind me of fireworks), a red lip and some blue sunnies. I didn’t want to over do the red, white and blue, so accessorizing with pops of red and blue felt just right. As for my reality…I will be spending the holiday BBQ with friends and family then sunggling up with myself as I watch the firework show. Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Fourth of July!

-Summer Time

Hey Loves! It’s officially summer and one thing I recommend this summer is going out and having the time of your life! I wore this pretty little number when I was in Cancun, Mexico  to dinner, then to go have a few drinks and dance the night away. I just love the embroider details on this dress and the fact that it’s black and white means I can pair it with any color for a bright summer pop. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been stocking up on some pretty summer dresses this past spring and I can’t wait to wear them.

Cancun Travel Diaries


Hey Loves! Welcome to my Cancun travel diary. I decided to put together some of my favorite photos from my trip to share with you guys. I was in Cancun for 7 days with my mom and grandparents. It was the perfect vacation for some relaxation. The first night we were in Cancun my mom and I went to this club called COCO BONGO. It is like nothing I’ve ever been to before. It is a performance but a club at the same time. If you are ever in Cancun I totally recommend going, even if your not the club type. I also got a chance to go to Isla De Mujeres, The Mayan Ruins at Tulum Mexico and Swim down the underground river at Xcaret Park. Below are some photos of my trip!

“A Girl With Passion Is Unstoppable.”

Hey loves!

Well it’s been a while since I last posted on my blog. I’ve been making new life choices when it comes to certain area’s of my life and I can’t wait to fill you guys in on them. Summer has officially started and I can’t wait to hit the beach and have some fun in the sun. I actually just got back from a 7 day trip to Cancun. It was my first time there and I had so much fun. I will do a blog post on that later on this week. Right now I wanted to give you guys a new outfit post featuring this pretty tribal blazer I scored on sale at Banana Republic. I thought is was the perfect blazer for summer to add some fun into your wardrobe. Below are some more photos of this look.
