Back To School with DSW

Back to school with DSW

This is by far my favorite blog post ever: one, because I was able to work with my princess, and two, because we are both some serious shoe lovers. You can probably imagine our excitement when we were asked to select back-to-school shoes from DSW and show how we would style each of our shoes. We are both girly-girls and sneakers are not our usual picks, but these were both just too cute to pass on. I also feel like sneakers made their way into every trendy fashionista's closet this past year. They are no longer just for the gym or for playing sports. With simple color combos—like these black-and-white ones—and some sleeker designs, we can now add it to some of our favorite looks and still look chic. 

For my daughter's look, I decided to go with what she loves the most: a dress. I then accessorized it with a denim jacket and her adorable print backpack. I know a lot of people stay away from dressing their kids in black, but the trick is to add a pop of color where you can. For this particular look, the backpack and the denim jacket kept the look from being too monochromatic.

I wanted to keep with the black-and-white theme to style my super-cool sneakers, but I added a pop of color by wearing my favorite red aviators and red lipstick. I also wore my faux-leather shorts to add a different texture to my look. I love these shorts. They are so versatile and super comfy and go perfectly with these sneakers. Both our looks are super easy and comfy, and are the perfect choice for a back-to-school look.

Sag to Swag with Pampers

Latinos are born with rhythm and dance in their blood, and my 1 yr old definitely has it in his blood. He dances to everything, including his made up "baby babble" songs, but his best and most infamous moves come out when he is listening to some Merengue and Bachata. It is only natural because we come from a culture where music and dancing are part of our everyday lives. In my home we listen to music while we are cleaning, cooking and even in the shower. Not only does it play a major role in our home, but, whenever we are out running errands the only way I can keep him happy in the car is to play music. Nothing can hold back my little dancer except a saggy diaper, and that is why it is so important for me to keep him comfortable. 
Finding a diaper that can keep up with his every move is my number one priority.

Lucky for me the new Pampers Cruisers diapers feature three Extra Absorb Channels TM that help little ones stay drier and do not sag like ordinary diapers* – helping babies go from sag to swag. While a poor fitting or saggy diaper can limit babies’ freedom of movement, new Pampers Cruisers have three channels in the core of the diaper that help distribute wetness evenly and prevent diaper sag, helping babies move without restriction and keeping my little guy happy and dancing to his favorites songs. Not only do Pampers diapers prevent diaper sag but they also have three layers of protection and a thin core to help lock away wetness and provide up to 12 hours of protection. Pampers Cruisers feature fun Sesame Street® character designs and include wide, stretchy sides to help the diaper stay in place and flex comfortably with baby’s every move, for Pampers best fit. 
While the design of Pampers Cruisers has changed, the diapers are made from the same safe and mild materials as before.
