Neon and plaid

Happy Friday! Today is the last day of the month and I am excited for March to begin. I have been staying away from dark tones and have been wearing lighter or brighter colors. This is my way of saying I am more than ready for spring. 

This outfit was worn yesterday. Thursday afternoon was filled with errands so I needed a quick, comfy and of course cute outfit to wear. Looking through my closet this sweater definitely stood out because of the bright color so I knew it would be the center piece of my outfit. The sweater, jeans and flats were okay but I felt like I needed a print. Sometimes just a plaid top and statement necklace is all you need to spice up a knit sweater. I kept it simple with dark washed jeans and wore nude flats for comfy-ness. 

Have a great day :)

preppy chic

 Hello fashion lovers! We woke up to super cold temperatures this morning which was not fun at all since I was getting used to the warm sunny days. This explains the indoor shots of todays look lol. I had a few errands to run and finally got a chance to make an appointment at the hair salon for a very needed trim. I took advantage of my trip to the salon and took my extensions to get a few layers on them so they can blend even more with my hair. I wanted to go for a semi dressy but yet casual look and came up with a preppy style. A blazer always polishes up a look even when you are wearing jeans and gives your outfit a preppy feel. I loved todays outfit and hope you did as well.

day to night look with a bright printed dress

Happy Monday! My orange obsession continues! I recently found this dress at Ross for less than $10.00. That's a great deal right? Well I pictured myself wearing it with ankle booties and a cardigan but that outfit image completely changed when I remembered I had these bright mint heels. This outfit was worn yesterday. I needed both, a comfy and dressy look. I thought it would be a good idea to wear this dress with sandals for the day time which would be comfy and heels with a jacket layered over for a dressy vibe. Weather has been amazing with a bright sunshine so I wanted to wear this dress instead of waiting to wear it for spring. 

Have a great week :)

powder blue and white booties

Happy Saturday! The weekend has arrived. What are your plans for this Saturday and Sunday? I hope the weather this weekend is as great as it has been the past days. Instead of wearing coats and jeans I have been wearing shorts or skirts like yesterday. I finally wore a skirt I mentioned in a recent haul from Forever21. I was unsure on what I would wear it with but when I found these white booties at I knew they had to be worn together. I've been having this tie-dye denim shirt for a while now and thought it would be great to take it out again as it complements the skirt and booties perfectly. I decided to stay with the blue and white combination without adding an extra color for a soft pastel look. And yes I am wearing my Lili hair by Bellami hair extensions for the second day and I am still loving them :)

Enjoy your weekend!

Inlove with my boyfriend (jeans)

Happy Friday! As you can tell from the title, today's post will share my love for boyfriend jeans in this casual ootd. Have you also noticed something different with my hair? Yep! I have a new set of longer and thicker clip in extensions from Bellami hair. This was my first time wearing them and I gotta admit they make me feel fabulous! I don't want to get in much detail about them right now because I will be doing a separate post with a first impression and review on these gorgeous locks. So moving on to the outfit...

Yesterday I was in a white tee and ripped boyfriend jeans kind of mood. I literally became obsessed with boyfriend jeans since last Tuesday. I used to own only 2 pairs because Ive always been a skinny jean type of gal but I had to get me more. They are my number one choice when I look for bottoms. They just go with everything!

 I recently received this OOTN magazine tee as a gift for winning an instagram contest. I actually cut the neckline and bottom since it was a bit too long for me. A white top always looks great paired with distressed denim and if it has some type of saying or picture even better! To break my habit of going for gold accessories I put on a pair of silver heels that feature a chain on the front. I layered 2 necklaces and hung a grey bag over my shoulder to complement the heels. The sun was out and shining bright so I couldn't forget these mirrored aviators in blue/green. For a small pop of color I went for a pink lip. 

Thank you for reading. Have a great weekend!

mini weekend vacation

 Happy Tuesday ladies! I hope you enjoyed your 3 day weekend as much as I did! This weekend my husband took me and Isabella out of town to celebrate our anniversary which is today =D 

We decided to go to Houston to visit a dear friend of mine and also take a trip to Kemah with her and her boyfriend.  We left Saturday evening and arrived just in time for a late dinner with my friend and her family. There was karaoke which made it a fun environment. The following day we drove to Kemah Boardwalk with my friend and her boyfriend to enjoy the warm weather. We had lunch at an amazing restaurant called Aquarium. I loved the inside and detail they put to the place. It was lit with blue lights, several fish tanks, some big and some small, and instead of normal walls the building was made of fake rock. It really gave you that underwater experience. 

Unfortunately our trip could not last as long as we had to be back in Dallas by Monday so we left Sunday evening. I was sad for our trip to be over but it was nice to get away as a family and enjoy each others company in a different city. 

What were you up to this weekend?
