My go to swimwear style

My go to swimwear style

Hello Everyone! Spring break is in full effect over here at my house. Boys are off for the week and I’m trying not to yell! No but really my boys are good but it does get hard since they are 10 years apart, The little one thinks everything the teenager does needs punishment, LOL! So all I hear is mom punish Dave or Mom I’m hungry, Like seriously!

With summer around the corner, I’m already looking for new swimwear. I’m pretty basic when it comes to picking out swimwear. And with being a mom and having the kids with me, that’s also something I keep in mind when shopping for swimwear. I remember when David my oldest was 2 We were in Jamaica and I went down the slide with him in a more low-cut bathing suit and lets just say they flew out, LOL! So I’ve learned to keep it comfortable, cute and kid friendly. I’ll keep the low cut for trips with no kids. So I’ve rounded a few that I like, and that can be styled with some cute accessories to look trendy and chic at the pool! Loving neon so I had to throw that one in, A pink is always cute, You have to have a black one I mean it’s a must. The leopard is so good, and I actually ordered it, it’s on the way! You can throw on some jean shorts. I like to place a tee over and tie it, if you’re walking around the pool area. A cute sheer duster  is always a must. Don’t forget some sandals. I like havaianas for the pool!

Accessories to give your swimsuit that extra cuteness. I love a good sunhat, Find one that’s neutral so you can wear it all summer with everything. A good bag that you can toss everything inside for pool and beach days, Moms you know how much we pack for kids. I think everyone needs a cute basket bag, So fun and chic. I always like to buy a more inexpensive pair of sunglasses for the pool and beach with kids. Just to be safe you won’t ruin your more expensive ones. I love me a cute layered necklace with a swimsuit and you can’t forget the scarves.  I love a cute head scarf, You can wear it so many different ways and also tie it on your shorts or basket bag for color. check out my video on instagram @stylesencillo for a short video on how I style a basic black swimsuit.

Well ladies happy swimsuit shopping, Hope you liked this post, Till next post.

Spring fashion 2019

Spring fashion 2019

Hello Ladies! So we are about one week away from Spring! Bring on the fashion, sun and allergies, LOL! I’m a spring baby so it’s my favorite besides Fall. But the allergies that come with it can be annoying. Will get through it. I want to get into spring fashion and what I like and what’s popular.

First is Neon, it was spotted on the runway and you see it on celebs. I’m loving neon so much right now. I have neon nails and I’m planning on adding some neon to my 40th b-day. I can’t wear a full on neon outfit, it’s just not me. But adding a pop of it is fun and can be done in a cool, simple, and always budget friendly way. I added some samples of cute neon find that are budget friendly and can be styled with some simple basics. Like I did here I added a neon pink blazer to give my simple outfit a pop of color. Earrings, jelly slides and crop sweater from forever 21 and snake-skin shoes from Zara.

Next is Polka dots and mixed prints. I actually love polka dots so much. From dresses to tops or rompers. You can have fun with polka dots. A fashion trend that I’m loving is mixing prints. I did try it with polka dots and leopard and I just love the way it looked together. You can even mix plaid with polka dots to be more fun or another animal print with some neon. Sharing some looks that are budget friendly and can be styled so many different ways. Leopard Top, 3 others are from Zara and last 3 are from forever 21.

One of the biggest things I noticed about 2019 spring fashion is having fun. I like fashion that’s not serious. Have fun with it, Mix match that print, add some neon, Get those neon pink nails. Add a pop of leopard for work. Have fun with it. You don’t have to break the bank to be trendy for spring. My go to stores are always Zara, H&M and forever 21 for those fun accessories.

Hope you all liked this post and have fun with spring fashion! Till next post.

100th Blog post

100th Blog post

Hello Ladies! Today’s post is quite special. It’s my 100th post. And for that I am truly proud of myself. About 100 post ago, I was so nervous to press publish. I didn’t think anyone would care to read or even look at my Blog. But I published it anyway, and I’m so happy I did. I’ve had so much fun writing my Blog. I’m able to use my creative side and keep up with fashion like I love. I do run into some struggles, at times I feel like I’m not doing a good job, But I stop and tell myself that I am.

Putting yourself out there in this saturated world of blogging is scary. But I’m confident in myself enough to keep going.

I love sharing with you all and coming up with new things to write about. All my post really do come from my heart. I write like I’m talking to my friends, Which you are all my friends.

I plan on keeping this up until life doesn’t allow it. But until then I will continue to bring weekly blogs and fun photos.

I want to thank My photographer Wendy for supporting my vision from the beginning! Look girl 100 post later! And to the Hubby for being the best instagram husband ever, he gets low for those photos, LOL! And to all of you for taking the time to read and message me, It means the world to me. Cheers to 100 more!

Taking you down memory lane! Till next post.

How I make basics look trendy

How I make basics look trendy

Hello Ladies! Hope you all are doing well. The rain finally stopped in LA for now. And we are taking full advantage of that. I’m really looking forward to spring time. Just not the allergies we all get, LOL! I’m also pumped for summer this year, I can’t wait to have some summer fun.

Today I wanted to share some fun ways I like to make basic pieces look trendy. I’m big on not buying such trendy pieces. I’ve always gravitated towards basics. I also try to find trendy pieces at budget friendly places.

I think everyone should own a few different black tops. From a regular tee to a fun crop or a sweater. Black tops can go with anything and be styled with just about anything. My favorite is the black tee. A more relaxed fit is a plus, You can tuck it in or tie it to the front or back. Or even wear a spaghetti top or dress over. It’s just a staple you need to have in your closet. In white as well. I love my tees from Zara. They are under $10 and I love how soft they feel. I usually buy about 3 at a time. As well with white. And sometimes in Pink.

To make a regular black tee trendy I would add a hat or some cool trendy earrings that will make that Tee pop. Accessories are the items I usually buy trendy. You can find a great selection at forever 21. The earrings are so good there. I love me cute trendy earrings. Add a cute scarf to your black tee and you create a whole different look. Just have fun with adding trendy pieces on a budget.

Another look I like is a crop top. I have them in short sleeve and long sleeve. The long sleeve I like to dress it up more. I love pairing this one with a skirt or even some cute trousers. It just adds a little fun twist on the basics. I also love crop tops under overalls. It just makes the overalls looks so much more feminine.

This was short and sweet about basics. Hope you liked this post. Till next post!

Gymboree Holiday styles

Gymboree Holiday styles

Hello Ladies! Happy first week of December! I’m sure everyone’s getting in that Holiday spirit! One thing I’m a little bummed about is we didn’t get a family picture for a Christmas card. I swear I need to get it together. Next year for sure! So if you don’t get a Christmas card from me don’t think I left you out, No one got one, LOL! I’m thinking of doing a New years one! So talking about photos. I wanted to share some cute styles from Gymboree for the littles. From family photos, holiday parties, pajama parties or just a cool outfit for the Holidays.

I’ve been using Gymboree for 14 years since my oldest. I love the quality of their clothes. And the styles to choose from. Breaker here is wearing a look that I thought would be perfect together or paired with something else. I mean you can’t go wrong with a denim shirt in your closet. This one can be buttoned up or worn open as an added layer. These skinny jeans are so cute and come in other colors. I also love the color that I picked they will be perfect for spring as well. His beanie is so cute and although we live in LA it still gets chilly at night. Perfect to make an outfit look winter ready.

Breaker also wanted a robe and they had this cute one. It’s so cozy, he loves to wear it after the bath and just relax in it. They have the most adorable pajamas too. I know some families have Christmas pajama parties.

The awesome thing about Gymboree is they have a style for every occasion. Shop the cold weather collection for boys.  For that special little lady! Even some great gift options for boys and girls. My little one actually loves getting clothes. Mom’s always love it.

I have a special code if you spend $40 you get 20% off. What a deal. Be sure to check out with that code! GIVEHAPPYHBT and I hope that put’s a smile on your face!

Hope this helps out to dress your littles for this holiday season! Till next post.

How to deal with Holiday rush

How to deal with Holiday rush

Hello Ladies! Ok so I’ve been feeling very uninspired. I feel like the end of the year gets hard to keep up with the Blog, Instagram and my most important my family. So I always get extremely stressed out. I’ve been trying not to get overwhelmed, But it’s hard. I want to continue to bring great content to my blog, because it makes me happy. But I’ve hit a wall and I know once the holidays pass I will be refreshed.

 

So with that in mind I wanted to share a few things I like to do to avoid that Holiday rush and stress.

I’m all about writing list. I write down everything. Of course my gift list, grocery list and what food I’ll be making. List help me so much. I love to see it written and there’s nothing like crossing it off! That feeling never gets old! I know we all have different traditions but I think we can all relate to the shopping and the never-ending wrapping! For years I shop and leave it in bags. This year no way. I’m always leaving wrapping to the last-minute and I end up hating it. So this year I am totally wrapping as soon as I purchase. Because you end up wrapping about 50 things Christmas Eve, LOL!

Shopping! Ok we all love that, NOT! I mean for myself but it’s hard to shop for others. My kids are usually easy for me, But I have nieces, nephews, Etc. Mostly all teenagers or young adults. This year I decided to be easy on myself and my wallet! I haven’t decided what, but I’m going to be giving very easy gifts but with meaning to them. I’m always stressing out and trying to be extra. This year no way! And I’ve come to the conclusion that gift cards are not a sign of not caring or putting more effort, I love gift cards and I’m sure so will they.

Malls! I avoid them as much as I can around this time, They make me dizzy! I’m an online shopper and I like the more outdoors shopping. Like the Grove or The Americana and Old town Pasadena. I usually do most online and the rest I will wake up super early and get it done before the crowds. And I leave my kids at home!

IMG_4902

The most important is just be there in the moment. We are all so busy and rushed that we let the holidays pass right by us and we don’t enjoy the moment. So this year I promised myself to be there in the moment. I remember Christmas as a kid and having no worries. I want that no worry Christmas so I can be there physically and mentally  with my kids and hubby!

I have a very fun giveaway that I hope you all enter, I will be announcing the rules and the very special collaboration with this giveaway on Sunday Nov 18 on Instagram. It’s in honor of Breaker’s 5th birthday. I will have a special blog post next week on his party!

Hope this was helpful and happy shopping! Till next post.
