Sorry if I just conjured up an Avril Lavigne song with that title…but I thought the title fit (although I can’t say the same about that song). Anyway, I love me some skirts and dresses with a skater cut.
It’s fun, flirty and super feminine…which is kind of how I like to describe myself ;) Anyway, I got this skater dress at Armani Exchange a while back which is why it’s got longer sleeves but I just got around to wearing it (problems of a shopaholic).
I love the way it moves when I walk…kind of made me feel like I had a Beyonce worthy wind machine following me around.
Hey, a girl can dream, right? Continue reading →
There’s something about zippers on clothing…it makes it feel a little extra sexier, daring and adventurous. Take this dress from 4.Collective…it’s just your normal classic silhouette but that zipper that runs all along the side of it makes this dress stand out from your ordinary wardrobe staple. It’s always great to have classics (and trust me, that’s so my style) but it’s also nice to make some of these classic pieces become a little more contemporary in style and attitude. Also, that hemline is definitely adding a little extra sass to what could very well be a work dress. That’s why I love this line so much…you can go from work to happy hour to dinner with your love without doing so much as having to reapply your lip color.
“Eye” have got a thing for eyelet lately…there’s something so classic and chic about this fabric and to me, it just is the epitome of warm summer days and nights. I’ve been (sub)conciously stocking up on it and of course when I saw this See by Chloé dress with it, I had to have it. There are a lot of super fun eyelet options out there right now…from shorts to tops to dresses and skirts…so if you’re into this style the way I am, you’ll be really pleased with the selections out there. This eyelet dress will be on heavy rotation with me all summer long.
We had heard the horror stories of attempting to conquer Disney with a toddler. The tales of long lines, the hot Orlando sun and no available reservations for lunch and dinner. The stories of tantrums over not being able to see Elsa. The exuberant cost of having to buy every souvenir known to man. And lastly, the nightmares of not being able to disconnect from Disney itself once the park day was done (hotels that play theme music throughout their grounds, pools with bright colored character sculptures, rooms with only Disney movies playing and so on and so on). Needless to say, we were nervous and maybe a little scared about our trip to Orlando.
That’s why when it came time to look for where to stay we decided to research a little and find a hotel that would be able to provide us (the adults) with a vacation of our own without excluding little Mia.
Enter (and check in) to the Four Seasons Orlando. Located on Walt Disney World Resort, this property is everything you’d expect from the Four Seasons without sacrificing quality family time.

I love the idea of having one item of clothing that looks like two…it’s like pretending to have actually planned your outfit when in fact, all you did was zip it up ;)
That’s the case with this dress from Banana Republic. The top is cut to look like you’re wearing a matching crop top (complete with back cut out) but it’s actually just one fit and flare dress. Love, right? I adore its fit so much that I purchased this dress in this fun spring print and in a solid black…because when a dress fits, buy it in every color! At least that’s my motto.

I’m so happy to read/see that the weathers are warming up all over the country and not just here in Miami. You all must be so excited to bare those legs, wear those short dresses and enjoy not being cold. Frankly, I don’t think my Miami blood could handle the winters anymore…I need the heat. Well, for those of you just starting to build your spring wardrobe, can I please suggest this fabulous little number by 4.Collective? I mean, the color is absolutely perfect and although you could pair this dress with dressier accessories, I loved the way it looked in this casual style. Love the basketweave too…it gives this simple silhouette an elegant touch. Continue reading →
Green is not a color I envy normally…it’s probably the color I own the least of. My closet is mostly a sea of neutrals so I was kind of hesitant when I saw this dress. I almost didn’t try it on but the simplicity of it and the material (100% silk) talked me into it. I’m so happy I did because I loved how it fit and how ridiculously easy it is to wear. I have worn this at least three times in the last month…and that’s a lot for me. I’ve worn it with black sandals, closed toe heels and of course, these strappy babies. So, I stand/sit here corrected with my impression of the color green…turns out it’s a pretty fab color to wear! Continue reading →
This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Vi and Va Dolls and Latina Bloggers Connect but all opinions are my own.
Mia’s got some new friends and that’s okay with me because these girls are like family. Meet sisters Viviana and Valentina along with their cousins Felicia and Roxxi part of the Vi and Va dolls collection.
No doubt you’ll be seeing them around town soon and especially in little hands. They’re exclusively sold at Target and thanks to their unique story, they’re geared towards embracing and honoring ethnic diversity. It’s so important that small children have toys that are relatable to them in skin tone, culture and names. How wonderful that this line provides little ones with the ability to appreciate the bonds of a Hispanic culture and the importance of family.
We received all four (4) dolls to try out and they’re all super fun and interesting. Mia loved being able to interchange their shoes, earrings and accessories (like the guitar, the boom box and the paint brush). Plus they all had a lot of hair…major bonus points for my little diva girl that loves styling her own hair. Continue reading →
Horizontal stripes…the nemesis of all women…or simply just a misunderstood direction? I’m going with the latter.
After all, I felt great wearing this horizontally stripped dress by 4.Collective. I never once felt it made me look big or wider than I am. In fact, I think it hugged my body just right. I think the trick to wearing horizontal stripes is their width and their placement. If you see, the torso of the dress is all horizontal but the skirt part of the dress has more of a curvature giving the skirt a nice bounce appeal.
Of course it can be scary to try on something that we’ve all deemed to be unflattering but trust, some horizontal stripes are breaking out of that stereotype and making us ladies rethink their negative appeal.
I picked up this sweet little REDValentino number at the Gilt Warehouse sale and I’m honestly not sure that I can tell you what I paid for it because it was such a steal…and because I’m afraid they made a mistake on the label and will track me down thanks to this post and make me pay the difference. For the record, I will admit that I would happily pay it because this dress and me belong together. It’s the softest prettiest pink ever and it’s got the most delicate little Valentino bow along the waist to make this look the epitome of girly. I could have paired it with some strappy heels or cute wedges but honestly, these Keds were exactly the shoe for the dress.
