Leather B-Ball Shorts

Ive been wanting leather shorts for the longest time but for some reason just couldn’t find the right pair for me until I saw these basketball style leather shorts at H&M! I love that they are casual but can be dressed up as well which is what I’m doing with them today! For the first look I paired a jersey tank also from H&M with the shorts and converse for a more casual laid back look. The second outfit I paired a leopard print top with the shorts and sandals which could work for an evening out look! Is leopard print coming back in style this fall? Because I really hope it is! But then again does a classic leopard print really ever go out of style? I think NOT! :) For these pics I shot with local photographer Sara Montoya Photography! I enjoyed this shoot but it was sooooo HOT! These shots are a different style then what I usually do but it was so fun doing something different for a change! Check out her work!

lashirt2I adore this tank jersey from H&M! (Found similar tanks that would work with shorts like these HERE & HERE )I was also thinking that white Converse would look great with this outfit too! What do you think?

I had my old beloved crossbody bag with me this day! The wrist band is CULTURE OF CALI! I found some shorts that I also love HERE!

I was looking for a great pop of color and I found it with this red orange clutch from Old Navy. I’ve really been into this red orange trend lately! Love how vibrant it is!

I’m wearing Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Purty Persimmon. I love this particular lipstick because it really does last along time and they have so many shades to choose from! Find it HERE!

Rings in this pic are from Culture of Cali! Find them HERE and HERE! My LOVE ETCHED Bangle is from Culture Of Cali as well and its pretty much on my arm alllll the time! And I’m pretty obsessed with this lariat style necklace also Culture Of Cali!

TLC

Growing up in the 90′s I remember my older sisters would blast their radio so loud I got to listen to everything that they did! They loved R&B music so I started to really love it too! Some of my faves were Destinys Child, Aaliyah, Missy Elliot and the wonderfully talented and cool, TLC. I mean they had a whole album entitled, Crazy, Sexy, Cool!! I particularly loved their Fanmail album with “No Scrubs” on it! I remember the first time I saw the video to that song I wanted their outfits and I wanted to learn their dance moves. I did my best. LOL! TLC was and will always be one of my fave girl groups!

So when I went shopping the other day and saw this tee at H&M I knew I had to get it! Just trying to represent mah girls!

tlc1This t shirt is pretty over sized, not a problem at all for me but I thought I’d tie a knot in it to give it a little bit of a twist, pun intended. God I’m a nerd.

tlc2

I haven’t purchased black jeans in awhile and I’m glad I bought these because I just love how they fit me! They are also from H&M!

tlc3

This bag is my friend. :) I got it from Nordstrom Online and its just so versatile! Goes with like everything!

tlc4

And can I talk about my sunglasses?! These are from Dollar General!!! They were $5 and I’ve had them for about two months and they’re still in tact! LOL!

tlc5

These sandals are newer to my closet and they will for sure be in some upcoming outfit posts! I love the front zipper detail! They are from Marshalls!

tlc6

Ahhh my hair is so bad in these pics! Bed hair, kinda don’t care! HAHA! I’ve been living in these accessories from my store CULTURE OF CALI! That stack is such a staple! It includes the Anchor Stretch Bracelet, Love Etched Cuff Bangle, Stud Wrap Bracelet and Aztec Silk Wristband! The rings on my left hand are also from Culture Of Cali, get them HERE and HERE! Lastly this Triangle Necklace also from Culture of Cali has been on my neck almost on a daily basis! So simple and cute!

tlc7

tlc8

This cross ring is fab! Its also from H&M!

tlc9

Any other TLC fans out there?! These pics were so fun to shoot! Thanks to my good friend Felipe for being my photographer this day! Come back soon for some more outfit posts or sign up to receive email updates from me! May all styles unite!

Lovin Army Green

I’m finally back with a new outfit post and even as I write this both of my kids are talking in my ears. Is it time for school to start yet? LOL! I don’t often love color but this army green color is just soooo pretty to me! And for olive skinned girls its a color match made in heaven! I just love basic pieces because of all the things you can do to dress them up or down! Also basic pieces are easy to layer! I recently purchased this Express moto vest because it was on sale and it was cute! Then I found this basic tee from Cotton On the other day that I just had to have! ( Shop a similar one here )I know layers during the summer don’t usually work but this shirt is so breathable and the vest well its a vest, no sleeves! Perfect way to layer in the summer! I want to go back and get this shirt in the other colors available because I just love me a big over sized tee! :)

photo1I’m obsessed with this Double Triangle necklace from my shop Culture Of Cali! When I got this one in the store I knew I’d probably wear it a lot! Isn’t it fab?!

photo2

An army green and black combo is my fave!

photo3

These super cute wrap bracelets are also from my shop Culture Of Cali! I live in them now! lol!

Oh my gerd, I’m still loving these H&M pants I got like 100 years ago!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Review

It has been forever since my last post! Like over a month ago! Honestly summer happened! I know there are so many bloggers who manage to post everyday despite having little ones but my kids being home has definitely soaked up a lot of my time. From gymnastics to baseball to playing with friends and planning fun activities, it has been a whirlwind! But I’m trying to get back on the saddle guys with some outfit posts coming soon! I’m about that ballin on a budget life right now so haven’t been able to do much shopping but yeah just excited to be blogging again! So for my first blog back I knew I had to do this product review mostly because I was uber excited about this purchase!

brows1

brows2

So I follow Anastasia Beverly Hills on Instagram and its FAB but it wasn’t until I saw someone post about the Dipbrow pomade that I had to try it for myself! I told my hubby all about it but I was like, “Yeah, I’ll have to order it online”. I like online shopping but sometimes waiting for packages is HARD! So I procrastinated. Then the other day I went into Sephora to use a giftcard and I was walking around checking out the brow powders and pencils and opted for the Benefit Cosmetics brow powder but then looked at the price and was bummed to see it was not in my $25 budget. So I kept looking and in one small section of the store there I saw Anastasia Bev Hills Cosmetics and I was like, “Hallelujah”! Like Heaven opened up and the Cosmetic Angels were singing praises all around me. I was so excited they had the Dipbrow shade I wanted and it was only $18! SCORE! I can tell you this, I’m obsessed with this stuff! I love how smooth it glides on and just how natural my eyebrows look when I’m done! Here’s sort of a step by step of how I fill in my eyebrows!

Step 1: First I dab just a small amount on my brush(I use a really dense small head brush) and then outline the top part of my brow. Be light on the hands here!

brows4

Step 2: Next I outline the bottom part of my eyebrow

brows5

Step 3: Then I go ahead and fill in the entire eyebrow. Be light on your hands on this step! You don’t want to use too much or else you are gonna look like you did your brows with coal and that’s a no-no girl!

brows6

4: Then I use a brow comb or brush to “blend” my work.

brows7

And here’s the finished product!

brows8

Before and After!

eyebroweditfinalSo I highly recommend this stuff guys and make sure you test the shade when you go in the store to find the perfect one! Keep checking back for new posts! Until next time, may all styles unite!

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!

IMG_2007new

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!
