chic in cutoffs










 cutoffs: Forever21 (get them here in a lighter wash)
white tee: Wal-Mart (boys section)
Ralph Lauren tote
 heels: Forever21 (also love these)
 bracelet: Juicy Couture
 watch: Michael Kors
 rings: Forever21
 sunglasses: Forever21



TGIF! The look I am sharing today is perfect for a casual and chic Friday. The cutoffs look perfect paired with a white tee to keep the focus of the grunge detail on the shorts. I love the whole bleached and destroyed effect on them but I do have to admit that they looked a bit scary to wear when I first saw them. They seemed challenging to style which excited me even more to go ahead and purchase them. Ready to hear the fun part of this look? The white tee is actually from the boys section I found at Wal-Mart for about $3.00. You may be wondering, well why don't you just buy a cropped top for women?! I like my cropped tops on the longer side and a bit loose but not too boxy like I would find them in a store. I decided to buy a boys size large and cut the bottom to control the length I want. Here, I kept the tee long. I plan on cutting a few inches more for my ideal cropped top and definitely buying more colors!

Feliz viernes! El look de hoy es perfecto para un viernes casual y chic. Los shorts se ven perfectos con una camiseta blanca para dejar la atención en el detalle de los shorts. Me encanta lo despintado y lo roto pero tengo que admitir que se veían un poco raros cuando los vi por primera vez. Yo pensaba que iba a ser difícil crear un look con estos shorts. Lista para oír la parte divertida de este conjunto? La camiseta es de la sección de niños que encontré en Wal-Mart por $3.00. Talvez te estes preguntando, porque no te comprastes una de la sección de mujeres?! Me gustan mis "cropped tops" largas y un poco sueltas pero no muy cuadradas como las venden para mujeres. Decidi comprar una talla grande de niños y cortarla de abajo para controlar lo largo. En este conjunto, deje la camiseta un poco larga. Pienso en cortarla mas para tener mi "cropped top" ideal. Definitivamente comprare mas de estas camisetas y en mas colores!

Boyfriend Blazer

 
                                
 
Happy Monday! Here is a new post with a new cut and hair color! I decided to cut my hair in an a line bob again but it is my first time that I get it blond. Since my hair is so dark my hairstylist gave me a slight black to dark blond ombre. I will go on a second appointment next month to add a lighter blond because now it just seems like I have highlights. I included a "selfie" that I posted on my instagram so you can see the color a bit better. The lighting on my outfit shoot was not that great and my camera did not pick up the blond. 

The boyfriend blazer has to be on of my favorite part about this outfit! It has been my go to layering piece whenever I want to add some chic-ness to a look. The length is perfect to wear over mini dresses, skirts, shorts or a romper like the one I am wearing.

Thank you for stopping by my blog!

Feliz Lunes! Aqui esta un nuevo post con un nuevo corte y tinte en mi pelo! Decidi cortarmelo en estilo bob y es mi primera vez que me lo pinto claro. Mi pelo es super negro asi es que mi estilista no me lo dejo tan claro. Tengo otra cita el proximo mes para aclarar mas las puntas para crear el famoso ombre. Decidi incluir un "selfie" que subi a mi instagram para que puedan ver el color un poco mas. En las fotos que me tome con el look completo no se me nota mucho lo claro en las puntas.
 
El blazer es mi favorita parte de este conjunto. Le da un toque mas chic a cualquier look actualmente.  El corte largo es perfecto para ponerse sobre una mini falda, vestido corto, shorts y un romper como el que traigo puesto.
 
Muchas gracias por visitar mi blog!

new in: Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac

 
 
The mini mac has finally been added to my handbag collection. This will be my second bag I purchase from Rebecca Minkoff. My first purchase was the mini quilted affair in mint which I am still super obsessed with. I like how this designer offers most of her bags in a large and mini version. The reason why I have went with the mini is to be able to convert them into a clutch which is very easy. All you have to do to the mini quilted affair bag is pull in the chains and the strap is detachable on this mini mac. This bag comes in so many colors but I went for this peachy color with gold hardware. I needed a casual kind of nude crossbody for those casual days and thought this would be perfect! The gold detail on the strap, the bottom, and all over sold me! Of course the lager version is much bigger but you would be surprised as to how many things you can fit inside. I can keep a pretty large wallet, my iPhone, sunglasses, keys and even a few make up products. I am happy to welcome this baby home ;)
 
P.S. I cut and dyed my hair + shot a new outfit with this bag. That look is coming Monday!
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
La mini mac porfin es una nueva adicion a mi coleccion de bolsos. Esta es la segunda vez que compro de la disenadora Rebecca Minkoff. Mi primer compra fue la mini quilted affair en color menta. Me encanta como esta disenadora tiene casi todos los bolsos en versiones grandes y chicas. La razon que decidi comprar la version chica es para poder convertila en bolso de manoLo unico que tienes que hacer con la mini quilted affair es meter la cadena adentro de la bolsa y con la mini mac, la cadena es desmontable. Este bolso viene en muchos colores pero escoji este color salmon con detalles en color oro. El detalle de oro en la cadena, abajo de la bolsa, y por todos lados me llamaron mucha la atencion. Obviamente en la version mas grande caben mas cosas adentro pero te vas a sorprender todo lo que puedes meter en la version chica. En este bolso puedo meter mi cartera que esta grande, mi iPhone, lentes,  llavero y hasta unos cuantos productos de maquillaje. Estoy muy contenta con mi compra! ;)
 
Adivina que? Me corte y pinte el pelo y tambien me tome fotos de un look con este bolso. El lunes estara ese look en mi blog!

the top

Hello fashionistas! Remember how I told you I had a few events this past weekend? Well here goes anther outfit I wore. This one was worn last Friday and it is more casual. I finally wore a new top that I added to my closet which I am obsessed with! It is from a gorgeous collection from H&M, called Conscious Exclusive. I was a bit disappointed when I noticed I was late on knowing about the collection and hardly found anything left. What I did find in my size is this beautiful top that has puffy sleeves. I did find a few items still available online as well from this collection. I was able to find the matching skirt for this top and will soon purchase it to have the set. Since I was going for a more casual look I wore slightly ripped jeans, nude heels and a statement necklace with crystals. I added a mint bag to my ensemble for a pop of color. I cannot wait to style this top in so many other ways. It has an amazing quality and looks so elegant!
 
Thank you so much for reading! The week is almost over, have a great one ;)

Hola fashionistas! Se acuerdan que les comente que tuve varios eventos el fin de semana pasado? Bueno, aqui va otro conjunto que me puse. Este me lo puse el Viernes y es mas casual. Por fin estrene esta nueva blusa que hace poco agrege a mi closet y estoy obsesionada con ella! Es de una hermosa coleccion de la tienda H&M, que se llama Conscious Exclusive. Estaba un poco decepcionada poque me di cuenta de esta nueva coleccion demasiado tarde y no quedaron muchas cosas. Lo que si encontre en mi talla es esta blusa que tiene mangas amponas. Encontre varias cosas en la pagina de internet de esta tienda y tamien encontre la falda que va con esta blusa. Pronto la comprare para tener el conjunto. El Viernes queria ir casual a la fiesta asi es que me puse unos pantalones de mezclilla, tacones color hueso y un collar llamativo con cristales. Agrege un color menta a mi look para una chispa de color. No puedo esperar a ponerme esta blusa de diferentes formas! La calidad es excelente y se ve muy elegante!
 
Muchas gracias por leer mi blog. La semana ya casi termina, disfrutenla ;)

polka dot dress

 

 
Happy Monday! This weekend was full of events and the outfit I am sharing is from Saturday. I attended the Christening of my friends beautiful baby girl. This polka dot dress was perfect for the occasion because it was appropriate to wear inside of the church. It was also great day time dress that could easily be transitioned into a night time dress. Sine I was only able to attend mass and not the party I kept my look simple with platform sandals and a statement necklace. If I was to do a party look I would pull my hair up to a high bun and switch the platforms to a pair of white or nude heels. I love how the dress fits. It flares out at the waistline and is only fitted on the top to create curves. Oh, and the best part it that I found it for $12.99 ;)

Thank you for reading! Have a good day!

Feliz Lunes! Este fin de samana pasado fue lleno de eventos especiales. Hoy boy a compartir el conjuno que use el Sabado. La hija hermosa de una amiga fue bautizada. Este vestido con bolitas fue perfecto para esa ocasion porque era algo apropiado para usar dentro de la iglesia. Tambien era un vestido perfecto para transformar de dia a noche. No pude asistir la fiesta asi es que mantuve el look simple con sandalias con plataforma y un collar llamativo. Para una fiesta me haria un peinado estilo cebolla como se esta usando y unos tacones blancos o color hueso. Me encanta como me queda este vestido! Queda justo en la porcion de arriba y se esponja de la cintura abajo para crear curvas. Y la mejor parte es que lo encontre por solo $12.99 ;)


Gracias por leer! Que tengas un buen dia!

Happy Friday! I have been waiting eagerly for the weekend to come and it is finally here! Well who else wouldn't be excited for Friday, right?! As you can tell today's outfit post is all about color-blocking with bright and soft colors. Neon lime paired with light mint make a perfect match! To avoid doing too much of one color I went for my favorite pair of nude heels. 

I am making a few small changes to my blog. One of the biggest additions I have decided to make is to make my blog bilingual, English and Spanish. Beginning today I will write in English and include a translation in Spanish as well. You can also check out a new tab I added on the header to include a bit more about me. Check it out ;)

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a great weekend!

Feliz viernes! Eh estado esperando el fin de semana y porfin a llegado! Bueno a quien no le gusta la llegada del fin de semana, verdad?! Como pueden ver, el conjunto de hoy es basado en juntar colores claros y neón. Amarillo neón y un color menta son una perfecta combinación! Para evitar usar mucho de un color me puse mis favoritos tacones en color piel.

Estoy asiendo unos cambios a mi blog. Unas de las mas grandes adiciones es que eh decidido hacer mi
blog bilingue (ingles y español). Empezando hoy, boy a escribir en ingles y incluir una translación en espanol también. Tambien puedes visitar una nueva pagina que incluí en la parte de ariba titulada "About Me". Ayi vas a llegar a conocerme un poco mas de mi ;)

Muchas gracias por leer y espero que tengan un buen fin de semana!

pink and lilac



High five for shorts season! It sometimes gets so hot in basically every season in Texas that all I want to wear are shorts. This week has been gloomy and a bit chilly but last week the weather was perfect. I paired these simple shorts with a bright pink top to have breakfast with my mom last Saturday. We celebrated mothers day at our favorite restaurant. In Mexico, mothers day is celebrated on May the 10th and we like to keep that tradition. This year it was perfect how May 10th was a day before the second Sunday of May, which is the day it is celebrated here in the US. We celebrated all weekend long ;)

Have you ever seen me wear purple? I think I have mentioned it before that for some reason that color does not grab my attention. This is the only pair I own that has a purple shade. Ive been having these wedges for about 2 years and have only worn them about three times, counting last Saturday. Since pastels are trending this season I decided to keep them in my closet when I did my Spring cleaning. I like how it has a bright pink which makes it easier to match with another color other than purple. This look is super girly and perfect for the mall or a casual date. 

Thank you so much for reading!
