Cape Blazer: Nasty Gal (Here)
Top: F21
Jeans: Gap
Shoes: F21
Sunnies: Gap Factory

I have been meaning to post about this fabulous cape blazer from Nasty Gal for months. I purchased it a while ago and have worn it a few times, including to the CoverFx event last week and if you follow me on Instagram you might have seen this look on there.  I get so many compliments on this cape blazer, it is so unique and it definitely adds some fun to an otherwise very simple outfit. One other thing I've been meaning to talk a little more about is my hair color. I dyed it black last week because as expected the dark brown was not winning the battle against the Ombre blond I did last year. The blonde kept creeping through and it was driving me nuts, black is not my ideal hair color, I prefer my natural dark brown hair but this is the only color that I knew for sure would cover the blonde. I used L'Oreal Excellence Creme in Blue black as it simple and easy to use. It is taking some time to get use to this color but for now I am happy to see the little bits of blonde officially gone.

He tenido la intención de escribir sobre esta fabulosa chaqueta estilo capa de la tienda Nasty Gal por varios meses. Lo compré hace un tiempo y lo he usado un par de veces, incluyendo en el evento de CoverFx de la semana pasada incluso si me siguen en Instagram ya abran visto este look. Recibo tantos complementos sobre esta chaqueta estilo capa, es único y sin duda añade un poco de diversión a un look simple. Otra cosa que he tenido la intención de hablar un poco más es sobre mi nuevo color de pelo. Me teñí el pelo negro la semana pasada debido a que el marrón oscuro no estaba ganando la batalla contra el rubio Ombre que hice el año pasado. El color rubio seguía saliendo en, Y mi única opciones teñir me el pelo del color negro. El color negro para mi no es el color de pelo ideal, prefiero mi pelo natural de color marrón oscuro, pero este es el único color que yo sabía que iba a cubrir lo rubio completamente. Utilice L'Oreal Excelence Creme en el color negro azul como por que es sencillo y fácil de usar. Me va tomar un tiempo acostumbrarme a este color, pero, por ahora estoy feliz de ver a los pequeños trozos de rubio oficialmente desaparecido.

XOXO

I'm on YouTube





I'm on YouTube guys!! I am beyond nervous and excited about adding this to my blog and to be honest it took me forever to just hit upload and make this video public. I also recorded this haul twice, the first time I rambled way too much LOL . The reason why I finally took the plunge and joined the YouTube community is because I've been super MIA from the blog due to a variation of things, for one the weather this past winter was horrible and taking pictures outside was nearly impossible. Two my hubby is my "photographer" and he's been super busy at work and of course having the kids spread germs to one another over and over, was also a major set back. Starting this channel is going to allow me to bring more variety to you guys my fabulous readers.  I have so many video ideas, that include DIY projects, product reviews, more mom related content and of course more fashion & beauty than ever.   If you guys have any ideas for a video you would like to see please let me know. While you are visiting my channel don't forget to give my video a thumbs up and subscribe so that you can stay up to date.

Mi gente, estoy en YouTube!! Estoy más allá que nerviosa y emocionada ahora que agregue el canal de YouTube a mi blog y para ser sincero, me tome horas para por fin completar y subir este video. También grabé este recorrido dos veces, la primera vez hable demasiado. He estado súper perdida y no he podido publicar nada en blog y fue debido a varias cosas, por ejemplo el clima durante este invierno pasado fue horrible, tomar fotos afuera, estuvo casi impossible. Segundo mi marido es mi "fotógrafo" y ha estado muy ocupado en el su trabajo y, por supuesto, tener a los dos niños pasandose gérmenes del uno al otro me atraso aun mas. Este canal va a permitirme traer más variedad para ustedes mis seguidores fabulosos. Tengo tantas ideas de vídeo, que incluyen DIY, reseñas de productos, más contenido relacionado a la maternidad  y por supuesto más moda y belleza que nunca. Si ustedes tienen alguna idea sobre un vídeo que le gustaría ver por favor hágamelo saber.

Trying to defy this long winter by wearing some open toe shoes this past weekend. I must admit I was in and out of my car that day so I was nice and warm for the most part but I am tired of wearing boots. I got these shooties a couple of months ago, they were on sale at the DSW store so I couldn't go wrong besides I had high hopes for an early spring. The web site describes these as sandals but I think they are more like a shoe mixed with a bootie (shoetie). Perfect for spring and super comfortable, I love the taupe color and the pop of color on the insole. 

P.S. the wind was unreal so I'm pretty much holding my hair down in all my pics lol 
P.S.S. I dyed my hair black. What do you think?

Tratando de desafiar este largo invierno con el uso de algunos zapatos  abierto este pasado fin de semana. Tengo que admitir que estaba dentro y fuera de mi carro ese día, así que era agradable y cálido en su mayor parte, pero estoy cansada de usar botas. Compre estos shooties hace un par de meses, que estaban a la venta en la tienda DSW así que no podía ir mal, además de que tenía grandes esperanzas para una primavera temprana. La Pagina web de DSW lo describe como sandalias, pero creo que son más como un zapato mezclado con un botín (shoetie). Perfecto para la primavera y super cómodo, me encanta el color marrón y el toque de color en la plantilla.

P.S. el viento estaba increíble, así que estoy tratando de controlar mi cabello en todas mis fotos jejeje
P.S.S. Me teñí el pelo negro. Que les parce?

Hello March?

Coat: Soia & Kyo || Sweater: Ann Taylor Loft (on super sale) || Jeans: Forever21 || Shoes: Nine west || Sunnies: Gap Factory

Yup, It is snowing again! I have said this a million times this winter I feel like I'm on repeat, but I am so over snow, it has been nearly impossible to dress nice let alone take pictures. It is one of the reasons why you haven't seen much of me lately, that and the below freezing temps we've been having. I just haven't been able to embrace this weather, but I gave in and stepped out to shoot these pics in this outfit I wore to hang out with family. I was not expecting the snow when I planned this outfit, but thankfully I was in my car and I did not have to walk anywhere. Let me know what you think and leave me a comment below. 

{Espa ñol} 
Sí, Está nevando otra vez! Lo he dicho un millón de veces este invierno me siento como si estuviera en repetición, pero estoy cansada la nieve, ha sido casi imposible de vestir bonito y mucho menos tomar fotos. Es una de las razones por las que no han visto mucho de mí últimamente, eso y las temperaturas bajo cero que hemos tenido. Yo no he podido aceptar estas temperaturas, pero me anime y sali a tomar estas fotos en este look que lleve para pasar el rato con la familia. Yo no estaba esperando la nieve cuando planeé este look, pero por suerte yo estaba en mi coche y yo no tuve que caminar . Déjame saber lo que piensa en la sección de comentario abajo.

XOXO

Indian Wedding Guest Look

Dress: Virgos lounge via ASOS || Shoes: Christian Louboutin || Head piece : Mall Kiosk 

I Can't believe I completely forgot to post this look. If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that I posted some picture of an Indian Wedding I attended a few months ago. This was the first indian wedding I attended and I really wanted to wear an traditional Indian Sari, but I had no idea where to start and I did not want to burden the bride with helping me find a dress, so I decided to go with this gorgeous embellished dress from Virgos Lounge. They had the most gorgeous options, but this one just had my name written all over it. I decided to accessorize with just the head piece because the dress already had a lot going on and I did not want to take away from the gorgeous details it has. I hope you guys like this look.

{Espanol}
No puedo creer que me olvidé de publicar este look. Si me sigues en Instagram te habrás dado cuenta de que he publicado algunas fotos de una boda India en cual asistí hace unos meses. Esta fue la primera boda India que yo he asistído y tenía muchas ganas de llevar un look tradicional de la India, pero no tenía ni idea de por dónde empezar y yo no quería ser una carga para la novia pidiendo que me ayudara a encontrar un vestido. Así que decidí ir con este precioso vestido adornado de Virgos Lounge Tenían las opciones más hermosas, pero éste sólo tenía mi nombre escrito por todas partes. Decidí personalizar con sólo la pieza de cabeza porque el vestido ya tenía mucho que hacer y yo no quería tomar distancia de los detalles magníficos que tiene. Espero que les haya gustado este look. 

XOXO

T-Shirt: NStyles c/o (here) || Skirt: DVF || Jacket: Zara (old) Similar (here) || Shoes: Aldo

I love a good print t-shirt and lately I am obsessed with pretty much anything that has a lip print on it. It's on my desktop, as wall art in my home office and I am on the hunt for a mug that had gold lip print on it (saw it on pinterest, if any of you know where I can find it please let me know) So when NStyles sent over this tee I was in heaven and I couldn't wait to wear it. I've had this skirt since the summer but had not worn it, I knew immediately that this DVF skirt was just waiting for this tee to make its debut. I love the details on this skirt, I am not a curvy girl at all but I feel like this skirt gave the illusion of some subtle curves and I couldn't be happier.

Me encanta la camisetas con impresión y últimamente estoy obsesionada con casi cualquier cosa que tenga una impresión de labios lo tengo en mi computadora, como arte en pared de mi oficina y estoy a busca de una taza que teníe una impresión de labios (lo vi en Pinterest, si alguno de ustedes sabe donde puedo encontrarlo por favor hágamelo saber) Así que cuando NStyles  me envio esta camiseta estaba super contenta y no podía esperar a usarla. He tenido esta falda desde el verano, pero no la había usado, supe inmediatamente que esta falda DVF estaba esperando la llegada de esta camiseta para hacer su debut. Me encantan los detalles en esta falda, yo no soy una chica con curvas, pero esta falda dio la ilusión de algunas curvas sutiles y yo no podía estar más feliz.

XOXO
