Color Pop:Shorts

Hey guys! Hows everyone been? I know its been a few day since my last post but my goodness! My kids are home from school, and I have worked trying to get the word out there about my accessories company Culture Of Cali! Its just been a lot of juggling I’ve been doing. Cali has gymnastics and Noah has baseball plus my hubby is a youth pastor at our church and I sing on the worship team. So yeah I stay busy but I always try to find time to blog when I can! Sorry about the rambling!

I love a subtle pop of color with any outfit! By know you know my love hate relationship with color. I just cant help that my eye has an eye for black and white and gray and sometimes cream, or off white! HAHA! So today’s pop of color is all in the shorts! Even this subtle salmon color isn’t screaming with brightness. LOL! The shorts are(OLD) from Old Navy!

IMG_2074new

I’m really loving this top from H&M. I love the print, its pretty simple and really cool! It actually buttons all the way down but I thought a little tie knot at the bottom would work. :)

IMG_2017new

When you’re going for a young fun look like this its ok to have a messy hair bun, ponytail or just beachy hair! That kind of stuff says, I’m confident and free! Messy hair don’t care!

IMG_2009new

Hats are so fun! I wish they were more popular here in Texas like they are in LA! You barely see anyone with hats on here which is weird because the sun is no joke here in Houston. We need that added protection in my opinion and hats are a great and fab way to protect our skin!

IMG_2094new

I’m in love with these cute black arrow stud earrings from CULTURE OF CALI! I love that they give any outfit a cool spin! And who doesn’t love arrows?!

IMG_2046new

I’m so embarrassed! Look at my nails! Ah well its a good thing I’m getting that mani pedi this week! Hallelujah! That adorbs necklace is old from H&M, the gold watch is from Goodwill and the Rose Feather Bracelet is mine from CULTURE OF CALI! I also love feathers :) Rings are from H&M and CULTURE OF CALI!

That’s all she wrote for today my friends! Come back and see me soon! :)

The Utility Vest

blackvest1For those of you who follow my blog(and actually read the content) you probably know by now that Cotton On is one of my favorite places to shop! I love their style and I love their prices! So the other day I happened to browse their SALE section which they always have great deals and finds in! And my eyes grew wide with excitement when I found this vest! Sure it was on sale because we are in summer months right now but I didn’t care! It was $15! Um HECK YEAH! I’ll make it work I thought!

blackvest2For summer you can pair a vest with some cutoff shorts and a graphic tee but for today’s look I went for a more MOTO feel!

blackvest3

I got these boots a few months ago before our trip to NYC. I think this may be the first time for them to appear on the blog though. OOPS. Its a bummer because I really love them! They pretty much go with anything! They are MIA brand from Marshalls.

blackvest4

This top is old from Marshall’s(I like it there too). Its on the brighter side than what I usually wear but its something I’m trying to embrace lately. Color that is :). In this post I’m wearing a ring and bangle from H&M and a ring and bracelet from Culture Of Cali!

blackvest5A closeup of my arm party LOL! I usually stick to a 3 maximum bracelet rule, sometimes 4 depending on the thickness of the bracelets. But hey that’s my preference, wear 20 bracelets at a time if you want to!

blackvest6

I love this arrow necklace from Forever 21(Its so old).

blackvest7

I had to crop my zipper out of this pic because I realized it was down the whole time! HAHA! You have to learn to laugh at yourself, and crop some stuff out! LOL!

Look forward to more outfit posts coming soon and make sure to follow me by email!

Karlie Kloss For Warby Parker

Warby Parker. It’s becoming one of my fave places to look for cool sunglasses. Every blogger needs some awesome eye wear because sunglasses really put a nice spin on any look! Plus summer is here and the sun is roaring! Especially here in Houston! :)

Warby Parker started when four really cool dudes put their ideas together to create classic vintage eye wear that makes a statement! You get boutique quality sunglasses at a fraction of the price.

Each frame is handcrafted using only the finest custom materials. SCORE!

They’ve teamed up with supermodel Karlie Kloss for their latest collection and I get to tell you about it today. :)

Karlie Vogue Still #2

She is gorgeous in the MARPLE!

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 4.15.49 PM

In celebration of this collaboration Warby Parker is donating to Edible Schoolyard NYC an organization close to Karlies heart. Edible Schoolyard NYC provides kitchens and gardens to low-income public schools, giving students the tools to develop lifelong healthy habits. And that’s not the only giving they do! For every pair sold they give a pair away to someone who really needs it! I love companies that do things like that! Its always good to give back.

Here’s a look at the fab collection!

Crop Top

It has been way to long since my last post. I woke up today missing my blog! This past couple of weeks have been so busy for us. We finally got our internet issue fixed! We just switched providers! DONE! I have also been working a lot on Culture Of Cali the accessory boutique I opened in April! You can go shop it HERE! Its been a fun process so far and quite a lot more work then I thought! Anywhoo, Im glad to be here again! With you, mah friend! :)

newskirtpic

I got this skirt from H&M recently for Easter and I LOVE it! The material is very stretchy so it doesn’t feel constraining at all. I’m on a mission to wear more skirts this summer! Its my personal challenge!

newskirt2

This top is old from Marshalls. I’m not a big crop top wearer but I think paired with a high waisted skirt or pair of pants I can pull it off! I love the aztec-y tribal print of this top in my fave colors gray and black of course.

newskirt3

Ok people are surprised when I reveal what I wear under skirts or dresses. Ready for it?……..SPANX! Yes I wear Spanx. I will NOT, could NOT walk out of the house in a dress without Spanx on! They are just one of the best inventions EVER! Try it, you’ll like it. :)

newskirt5

Notice what I did here? I mixed my metals again! Im pretty obsessed with the art of accessorizing! It makes up like 20 mins of my getting ready time most of the time! LOL! All rings from H&M and Culture Of Cali! Bangles from Forever 21 and Culture Of Cali!

newskirt4

My go to lip color these days is a light pink. Its subtle and perfect for everyday wear!

newskirt6

These strap heels are from this cool trendy store in Houston called Pavement! They are pretty great! The strap is velcro! Easy on, Easy off!

newskirt8

This summer try embracing a loose wavy pony tail. Its a hairstyle that can be dressed up or dressed down!

newskirt9

Light pink also works on the nails too! These cute earrings are from Culture Of Cali find them HERE!

This week I found out that H&M is coming to the Houston Galleria with a 20,000 SF store! It was like Christmas morning! I cannot wait to go shop and share my outfits inspirations with you! Until then may all styles unite!

Washed Out

GUYS! Ive been WIFI-less the past week and a half because our internet service provider pretty much sucks. So the posts have been slow coming and I’m sorry! But any who be patient pleaase :) So I am living in these acid wash jeans lately. They are so comfy and a far cry away from the super dark denim craze lots of girls have been going for lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a pair of dark denim jeans too but I think acid wash jeans are coming back and maybe they’ll stick around for awhile! Today I paired them with a black top but I’m wanting to experiment with them more and maybe pair them with a fun spring color! We shall see! Keep reading for outfit details!

new3995

So the jeans are from H&M! I love how H&M jeans fit. I’ve never bought a pair from there before that didn’t hug my body perfectly! Similar HERE!

new3997

This top is from old from Target! Similar Here! I love the hi low top trend too! I like that this one covers up the front and the back but is still chic!

IMG_4043new

My hairs down in this pic! LOL! I had just painted my nails so my sis volunteered to take my hair tie out!

IMG_3999new

I love waking up and just throwing my hair up! Ive been going more natural lately with my hair mostly because it saves time! I challenge you to go more natural too and see how much time you save!

IMG_4006new

As promised on my Instagram account I’m going to reveal where I picked up these super cool Aviators and my cross body bag in today’s post! They are from Goodwill! I don’t go into Goodwill much but the other day I had some time to spare and I came across these sunnies and that cute Liz Claiborne bag!

 IMG_4036newHere’s a close up of my accessories! The cross ring and midi rings, cat ear rings and square ring are all H&M! And the LOVE ROPE ring is from CULTURE OF CALI! Thanks for the visit! Hopefully I can get another look posted this week! Keep checking in :) Or just sign up with your email to get email updates from me! May all styles unite!

Sweater and A Lil Leather

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today! I’m pretty pumped about today! My husband and I are headed out to Rockport Tx! Ive been once before and I really loved it! Its a cute little beachy community. But before I head out let me tell you about today’s outfit! This is the outfit that I wore for church this past Sunday. Since I’m on stage I usually like to wear very comfy things that I can move around in. Plus it gets HOT under all them lights so ain’t nobody got time for pit stains! HAHA! Hence the reason why most of my Sunday outfits involve lots of loose flowy tops and most of the time comfortable shoes! On the day we took these it was so windy outside so it was hard to capture some decent pictures. MY clothes and hair were going wild!

 grayleatherrevThis top is from H&M. Everyone thought it was two shirts but nope just one! I thought the leather sleeves were a different and edgy touch! Here are some similar options//HERE//HERE//HERE

grayleatherrev2

I’m wearing a necklace that is so old I have no clue where I got it! I those bracelets are both from Target!

grayleatherrev3

Rings from H&M! These pants are one of my faves! I got these shoes for my birthday! I love the side cutout detail in them! Get them HERE!

grayleatherrev4

Dancing in the wind! Haha! You can see the cutout detail in the boots here!

This little guy is my main little man! This is Noah my one and only boy! Hes 7 and just wanted to take a pic with momma :)

grayleatherrev6

I love this lipstick from Revlon! Its the matte Really Red shade! Get it HERE!

Summers IT Sandals

Summer It Sandals(1)

Its sandal season! Can I get a whoop whoop?! Recently I’ve noticed this bizarre trend in shoes especially in the teens at our church and around town. They’ve been wearing these brown strap sandals that in my opinion are pretty ugly. When I asked why everyone is so crazy about this particular shoe the answer was this, comfort. When I asked what they were called the answer was this, Jesus sandals. LOL! I was like, “Ok, people really value comfort these days”. I’m one of them but could I really bring myself to wear these hideous shoes?! The other day GMA did a special about granny sandals and how they’re in BIG time for summer! And to my surprise I actually liked most of them! Another sandal making a big comeback is the gladiator sandal. But this time around I’ve noticed the more extreme and glam the gladiator is the better! So I’ve made my own list of summers IT sandals! Ones that I would actually wear might I add! Which ones do you see yourself in?

1. Urban Outfitters

2. Urban Outfitters

3. Nasty Gal

4. Nordstrom

5. Nordstrom

6. Nine West

7. Bloomingdales
