Happy Summer y’all! So it’s Memorial Day Weekend… So, I assume y’all have some awesome plans lined up. 🙂 We – as always – are still thinking about what to do. Either way, Speaking of Levi’s I wanted to share my favorite pair with you guys. These are hands down the favorite pair of denim shorts I own. Though I have a pair of Target shorts that I love too. These are under $40 and I just love the fit and details like the buttons instead of zipper and that they’re torn are the hem.
I have worn them quite a bit – especially over on Instagram – since buying them. And for this look I wanted to show them off with this cute leave print button down shirt. I bought it at a local boutique but have linked similar styles from around the web. I paired it with the espadrilles that have been my go-to lately, because they just seem to go with everything and are pretty comfortable. The bag is one my favorites and perfect for spring and summer; I’m linking everything below, the Levi’s shorts, bag, espadrilles and similar tops. 😉

Happy Friday Eve! So, tell me what plans do you have for the weekend? We don’t have any plans yet but surely will find something to do. Lately, I’ve been craving to be outside. In this Houston heat, rompers and dresses are my go-to. Amazon has been my go-to place to find affordable dresses. I have been finding dresses for just about any occasion. This little tier dress, I got for under $25. 🙂 I wanted to keep it casual, so I wore my favorite sandals from last season. My most favorite crossbody bag and minimal accessories. As always, I am linking it all below.
If you shop on Amazon, make sure to check out my profile! I have a few lists, including one with all my dress finds. Luckily all finds are super affordable. And I will continue to update the list as I come across more finds.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who celebrate today. Truth is that being from Panama, I mainly celebrate this especial day on December 8th. But because I have been living here over 10 years, I have also embraced celebrating in May. I suppose I am lucky to be able to celebrate twice a year. 🙂
This is my 9th Mother’s Day and it’s just as special as the first. Every year on this date, I feel blessed to have been able to embark on the great adventure that motherhood has been for me. I feel so honored to be able to raise my two girls. While, it’s not always easy, it’s my favorite thing to do. I’m not the best mom in the world but to them I am and it fills my heart with joy.
Motherhood has been a learning curve! And to my surprise, I’ve learned the most from my little ones. They have taught me to pause and enjoy the little things. I’ve learned that patience is a must. And that it’s ok to break the rules sometimes. Most importantly they have taught me what unconditional love is. These little one love so hard and I look up to them for that.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I teamed up with fellow blogger and mama, Ada over at Elegance and Mommyhood for a special link up.
Words from Ada; “I became a mom in my early thirties – a dream I had had since at least a decade prior to that. But I think like most things in life, it happened at the right time. To say my life has changed since my sweet princess Vivian has reigned my heart and my life, would be a huge understatement. She is the reason I live, smile, laugh and breathe. Even more so since I have been raising her on my own the last couple of years. Through thick and thin, my little girl and I have proven to be an unbeatable team. I hope our super close mother and daughter bond grows as each year goes by. I will work hard to make sure she has the best life possible because she is my entire universe! Thank you for being my daughter, sweet Viv! Today I celebrate Mother’s Day because of you, my beautiful, loving, smart and amazing daughter!”
Make sure that you hop over to her blog to meet her and her mini me. Thanks so much for stopping by and if you’re a mom, stepmom, mom-to-be, I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s Day!
If you think that wearing black jeans is only for fall and winter, you’re wrong. I wear jeans all year long, even black jeans. Today, I thought I’d share how I styled these black jeans for spring. Pairing the jeans with a floral print definitely helped to transition them into the new season. I mean, nothing says spring like florals, right? These skinny black jeans are from 1822 Denim, it’s one of the two pairs that I now own. Let me tell you that I love them. They are super comfortable and great quality jeans. 🙂
Adding lighter accessories like these gorgeous beaded earrings – which I’m linking below – seemed like a good idea for styling these black jeans. And a bamboo bag, which is the perfect spring accessory and one that can also be worn well into summer was a no brainer. I personally think that wearing sandals with any look, instantly transforms it and makes it spring/summer friendly. So I decided to pair the jeans with these block heel sandals that I bought recently for under $20 and come in four colors. I am linking everything above because most items are well under $50. So check them out and get to shopping! 😉
Happy Monday you guys. I don’t usually post on Mondays but today’s post is special because we are celebrating Ada’s birthday with a special link up! Make sure to check it out below and see what other bloggers sharing. Today’s outfit is a fun one! It involves four trends that you can wear now and in the summer; off-the-shoulders tops, paper-bag shorts, espadrilles and straw bags. This is the perfect combination for both spring and summer!
I have been doing a little bit of shopping at Burkes Outlet; and found the cutest romper which I shared on Instagram a few days ago along with these fun paper-bag shorts. I thought they would look perfect with this off-the-shoulders top. Even though you have seen this combination before – on this post – I had to share it again. I guess I just love the way off-the-shoulder tops and the paper-bag style looks together. 🙂
Espadrilles and straw accessories are also my go-to when the weather warms up. I got this bag online for under $40 last year, and I have to say that it was a great buy. I have worn it so many times and it’s back in stock, in case you’re looking for a similar bag. The espadrilles, I’m loving because they’re super light and comfy unlike a pair that owned before. The statement earrings, I also shared before and I have been wearing them so much lately. I love that they’re handmade, and each one is somehow unique. I think they would make the perfect gift too, so if you’re interested click over to Audra Style. I’m linking the entire look below in case that you see something that you want to buy! 😉
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I shared my new FitFlop Rally in Platinoyesterday. I have been wearing them so much more than I had imagined I would, when I bought them! They are just SO COMFORTABLE and stylish, that I don’t mind wearing them all the time. 🙂 So, I thought it would be fun, if I shared how to wear metallic sneakers this spring. I have already put together some looks and think I will be able to pair the sneakers with many more.
A Denim Skirt
Jeans skirts and sneaker are not a new trend, they’re a classic look really. Because I have been wearing this little denim skirt quite a bit this spring, I figured it would look super cute with these metallic sneakers. In this look I also wore an H&M tee that is under $5– yes, you read that right! H&M’s conscious line has some great finds for very low prices. I styled this look with one of my favorite handbags by Melie Bianco and if you use code NEW50 you can save 50% on www.meliebianco.com
