Mom and mini fall style

Mom and mini fall style

Hello Ladies! Hope you all are having a wonderful week. I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve written. I’m barely getting used to the every Wednesday Blog post. Eventually I will go back to twice a week. But for now every Wednesday it will be. I want to try to make those worth your reading! I can’t believe the holidays are coming so fast. It’s crazy! I am getting a little stressed. But will all get through it.

Next week on the blog I’ll be giving a little life update and my monthly blog update. I wanted to do this up into my first year of blogging. It’s important for me to keep all of you updated with my journey. So with that said let’s get into this fun post.

Today I wanted to share these outfits. As you can see my little guy is with me. He’s getting so big, Almost 4 to be exact. As we get into the colder months ahead. And all of us Mom’s know these kids grow like weeds. Every fall/winter we have to buy them new clothes. When I’m getting ready to buy Breaker new clothes. I always buy him very simple pieces to start. Denim jeans, a color denim, some neutral cords. Tees always basic color. Occasionally I’ll buy him some Tees that have a design, Like the one he’s wearing here. But that’s very simple, I try to stay away from too much color. For his pop of color I buy him fun socks. Because it’s cheaper to buy a colored sock, so he can wear with anything. Rather than buying a colorful shirt that he can only wear with certain things. Another staple I like to have for him is a Denim jacket. One day I’ll take a pic of all his denim jackets from the first to recent. It’s just a must for me to have for him. They look so cute on and make any outfit look cool. One of my favorite things to put on him are joggers a cute Tee and his denim jacket. I know sometimes we think girl clothes can be more fun, And yes they have more options. But I have found ways to make dressing boys pretty fun. It’s ok to be bold with socks and show them off. If your Son likes to wear hats be bold with a cute hat! Shoes are always a fun way to dress up a boy’s outfit as well! And just remember you don’t always have to match so much. I love a funky combo. Something I always keep in mind when dressing my little guy is 3 colors. I like to have at least 3 colors on him. It really makes his outfits fun! Hope this helps out some mommies with boys!! Or even some of you ladies that want to give your big guy some styling tips,LOL! It works for all! Hope you lovelies have a great rest of the week and a fabulous weekend!

Concert fun/bucket-list check

Concert fun/bucket-list check

Morning Ladies! Happy Hump Day!!! Hope all you lovelies had a great weekend and having a great week so far. I had a nice weekend. My week well, as good as it gets with being a busy mom! Today I wanted to talk about Bucket-list. I mean I hear this saying a lot. I never really had an official bucket-list. But of course we all have certain things we’d like to do or places we would love to visit. I told myself this year I would try to work on a bucket-list. I have stuff on there that I know eventually will be real. I’m working on it really hard.

This year I made it a little more practical, Lol! So I told myself this year if there was a concert I’d want to see I’m going to make it happen and go. I didn’t do many concerts as a younger person. But I love concerts! You can’t beat hearing live music. There was a certain group that was on my bucket-list for sure hands down my all time favorite. DEPECHE MODE when I heard they were going to be here in LA at the hollywood bowl I knew I had to go. Growing up my Mom was a single mom putting us through catholic school and working really hard. For Christmas My mom always felt bad that she couldn’t give us a lot. We weren’t those kids that expected big stuff. Well it’s funny because I couldn’t tell you things I got for christmas even last year I don’t remember. But one gift I will always remember is My DEPECHE MODE tape! Yes I said Tape, LOL! CD’s didn’t exist yet or at least I didn’t think they did. It was The Violator album, came out in 1990 I was in 6th grade. It was the best gift ever and I still remember. I made my mom play it in her car everyday. I learned all the words to every song because tapes came with all the lyrics on the case cover!!! Well fast forward to October 12,2017 I got to see my all time favorite band. This was such a fun night. I went with a group of girlfriends. We all had a blast singing to the songs, dancing, screaming, LOL! Hands down a great concert. The passion these men have for music really shows at their concert. Even if you’re not a fan, I bet you would enjoy! To everyone that doesn’t have a bucket-list I say make one. Small or big. Simple or dreamy. Make one for yourself. It feels good to actually make it happen. I’ll leave off with what I tell my son sometimes, YOLO!!! Hope you lovelies have a great rest of the week and weekend. Till next post!

Mule obsession

Mule obsession

Hello ladies! Hope you all are having a nice week! This past weekend I had a photo shoot, Can’t wait to share those with you soon! Any fun plans this weekend ladies? I’m pretty excited my weekend is starting a little early! I’m going to a concert tomorrow! I’m so excited it’s a concert my 6th grade self would be jumping for joy to be going, LOL! I’ll do a post on my outfit and who I’m going to see next week on the blog.

Today I wanted to talk about a trend that I’m loving right now. I remember these back in the day, MULES!!! It’s a trend that comes, hides and comes back! So I’m sure you all have had a pair or still have a pair in your closet. I’m totally crushing on these. They look so cute and I can walk in them without killing my feet. Especially for the fall I just can’t deal with how cute they look with a cute pair of jeans and a chunky sweater. The choices they have right now are crazy! I’ll need to get a part-time job at a shoe store just to buy the ones I want, LOL! Ok that’s crazy! But really I can’t decide which pair I want. They are all so cute. Of course I have a basic pair. These are velvet material which is a really big trend for Fall. So I’m loving these.

 

I do want to get a pair that is a little more colorful. I found these online at Steve madden, one of my favorite shoe stores. I need all my ladies to comment and tell me which ones I should get next. I don’t know about you all. But I wish I would have saved some of my shoes from the 90’s! Ugh! I had a lot of the trends that are going on right now! But I’m the type that cleans out my closet twice a year. My fiancé hates that, LOL! Maybe if I had a walk in closet I wouldn’t, Wink-wink! Hope he’s reading!

What’s your favorite Mule trend? leave a comment I would love to know. During the summer I had an open toe with a slight chunky heel. I love them! I’m wearing them in a few post back from summer! Go check them out! Shoes are my weakness. What’s your fashion Weakness? I think My boys inherited my shoe weakness, LOL! Well ladies I hope you liked this fun post about Mules! And hopefully you see a pair you like! I don’t know about you but the floral print ones are calling my name! Hope you lovelies have a great rest of the week and weekend!

all shoes are from Steve Madden!

I have nothing to wear!

I have nothing to wear!

Hello ladies! I hope you all lovely ladies had a nice week. I know it’s hard to get through weeks when such sad things are happening. I try to stay positive especially with my oldest. I don’t want him to hold back on life because of these awful things. The Hero stories make me cry because we do have good in our World. Sending hugs to you all!

Today I wanted to talk about something all of us have said “I have nothing to wear” ,LOL! I mean you know we’ve all said this. I know I have many times. As I get older I’ve become a smarter shopper. I had my fun in my 20’s and early 30’s buying the cute trendy stuff. Now I lean towards more practical items. But don’t get me wrong I still stay cute, LOL! I usually purchase very basic items. I buy more trendy accessories. I’ll buy the “IT” earrings or Bracelets that are in fashion. A few things I tell myself when I’m shopping is “Can I wear this with different bottoms?”  If I can match the top with jeans, skirt or shorts. I buy it! I also stick to basic colors. I add color with lipstick, earrings, belts or shoes. Another thing you can add for color is a scarf! I mean I live in Los Angeles so that’s not something I do a lot, but believe me when it’s cold I do it.

IMG_2819IMG_2825IMG_2824IMG_2823IMG_2822IMG_2821

Some of the basics I like to have in my closet. Always a good pair of jeans a nice blue, a good black and a nice grey. These are my favorite colors to have. For tops I must have a few black options. A short sleeve, long sleeve and sleeveless. Black tops you can always do so much. If you have a last-minute date night, girls night or event. You can match a versatile black top with anything and you will look chic! This top I have on is actually almost 4 years old. And still looks cute and fashionable. So you can’t go wrong with a basic black top. A few other staple colors you should have are white, nude and a light pink. I know some don’t like pinks but it’s so feminine and cute that a very light pink nude is always nice to have.  I think if you stick to some of these basics I promise you won’t say “I have nothing to wear” as much! Because who am I kidding us ladies will always say this! I found 3 tops that I would for sure keep in my closet! Hope this was helpful for us busy moms. Being a mom isn’t easy and we are always thinking about what our kids need. Just trying to make it easier on my stay at home mamas and working mamas out there! Have a great weekend!

All tops are from Zara. Because one key thing for basics is Quality! So they last longer!

3 month blog and life update

3 month blog and life update

Hello Hermosas! Monday again, LOL! I can’t believe it’s October already, like seriously! It’s also my 3 month Blog update. I have to say, I’m proud of myself. It’s been 3 months and I’m learning so much. Last month I was having a hard time, feeling discouraged. This month I have to say, I did have a week where I had no desire to think of my blog. I was feeling a little blah! This is being completely real but as I get older I find myself getting more emotional when I’m having my monthly lady blessing. I get a little depressed, anxious and not to mention, I feel not so pretty. That literally last about a week. This month I had it really bad. But I’m back to myself and I’m so excited to bring some fun fall looks, fall outings, and just some fun blog post. I decided to add a little more family stuff to my blog because it’s my life and it’s what I love about my life. The fashion is a given because I love me a cute outfit! I am really having fun with my blog. I can’t wait to see what a year will bring me. My goal is to build and grow as a blogger. I’ve connected with some really awesome ladies that help me push myself to do better and not give up. It means so much to me when I see comments from family, friends and ‘new’ friends saying they loved my post. These are the reasons I keep going! Here are a few shots from my photo shoots, which are getting a lot easier!

So a little life update. We survived the first full month of school. Both boys are doing great. My oldest is such a good kid. I mean like every teenager he needs a push in the studying department, but he’s very independent. He just attended his first school dance. That was pretty exciting. I want my son to live life to the fullest, and enjoy school life! My little one geez, Lol! He has his moments at school. I already know when his teachers need to tell me something he’s done. He’s a character let me tell you! I tell Daddy I need to be extra sweet to his teachers because they deal with our lil dude! It’s what keeps me young, dealing with these 2 boys! That’s what life as a mom is. Everyday is something new, everyday is a blessing and everyday I learn more and more how to be a mom! I’m not perfect and it’s not easy but it truly is the best thing in life. Here’s a picture of my oldest and myself before his dance. We we’re laughing at something funny Breaker said! I’m telling you, he’s a character! Hope you ladies liked this post. Have a great week!

Mickeys Halloween party

Mickeys Halloween party

Hello Ladies!! I swear these weeks go so fast. So as promised I’m going to share our family day to Disneyland. We are big Disneyland people. I mean, we love it! We did have season passes last year but didn’t renew since I don’t like going during the really hot months. So it had been almost a year since our last visit. I was pretty excited since every year for Breaker, it’s a different experience. That’s what I enjoy the most , my boy’s excitement.

This was our first time attending Mickey’s Halloween party. For those of you that don’t know, this is an evening event during Halloween time. This is not included if you buy a day pass and not included if you have an annual pass. It’s a complete other ticket. I know this event sells out fast. Season pass holders do get first priority on buying these tickets. Another thing before I get into my personal experience, these tickets are not as much as a regular admission and the cool thing is the event starts at 6pm. You can actually go in 3 hours before event. So you get those extra 3 hours to park hop! And the park closes early to regular admission ticket holders so the park is not that crowded.

IMG_2664IMG_2616

First the park is totally decorated for Halloween! It’s so cute and festive. It’s a Halloween party so you can dress up, of course Disney has rules on the website. But that was probably my favorite is just looking at everyone’s costumes and seeing how cute the families get into the spirit of it all. The crowd is a mixture. You see a lot of teenagers and young adults but you have your families with little ones as well. The cute thing is you see a lot of the characters around – more than a normal day at Disneyland. They have lines where you can take a picture with the Villains of Disneyland. I mean how cute is that! Some of the rides are Halloween themed. One of our favorites is the Haunted mansion. They turn that into ‘The nightmare before Christmas’ theme and it’s so cute! That one lasts through Christmas time at Disneyland so if you don’t get out there for Halloween you still have a chance to see it for Christmas. They have a few more that they change-up for halloween. But that one is my favorite. Another fun perk, is the Trick or Treating spots. They have them through out the park. They give you a map on where to find them. That was really cool.  Breaker loved that! We literally just did 3 of the spots and we had 2 bags filled of good candy. Oh they do hand out mini bags when you enter the park! One of the best perks of this event was the short ride lines. It was amazing! We got to get on Peter pan in like 2 minutes, LOL! If you’re a regular at Disneyland you know what I’m talking about. That line is always so long! The parade is a Halloween theme with a spectacular fire work show at the end. Besides feeling like a went to a club all night the next day it was such a fun night for my family, LOL! No but seriously, if you haven’t experienced it, I really recommend you do one year to come. It’s very cute and the kids loved it! So did us big kids! I’m going to share a few personal photos below. Breaker wanted to be a donut Chef, his choice. So I made us a little something to go with his costume. Breaker’s donuts on his costume, my ears and daddy’s pin was all made by yours truly. Big brother was supposed to be bashful from snow-white. I even made a hat for him but he changed his mind, TEENAGERS! Hope you ladies liked this post, I hope it helps if you’re heading out to Disneyland for Halloween.

Bootie season

Bootie season

Hello Ladies! It’s officially fall! I’m so happy. Fall is my absolute favorite season for fashion. My weekend seemed so fast. We are heading out to Disneyland today for Mickey’s Halloween party. So I will have a blog post up on Friday with my first time experience for the night event. So stay tuned!

IMG_2516

 

Today I wanted to talk Fall must haves. I’ll have a few more post on different items and makeup. For today I picked out 3 different outerwear styles you can add to a simple outfit. I also picked 3 different booties that I think can make your fall outfits say, YASSS! The outerwear styles I picked are pretty different. The first one I feel everyone should have is a faux motorcycle jacket. They look so cute with just about anything. Not to mention, I feel so cool when I wear mine. Another trend I’m loving is the trench coat. You just can’t go wrong with having one. They are timeless! I also make sure I have a really cute statement sweater. I love these. They are so cozy. But also look so fashionable. I would style all 3 with a great pair of jeans. A skinny jean, flare, straight, I mean your jean choice is endless. I live in California so it doesn’t get that cold. If I’m wearing a stylish jacket or sweater I always wear a tank underneath. That ladies will make you feel so stylish and comfortable.

For the Booties! I’m a shoe girl. I love shoes. The first pair I picked are flat style booties. These are so cute. I’m already putting these on my next purchase list. This mama has to limit her shoe buying. I would say they are more on the rocker chic style. I would wear these with a dress, some cut off jean short or some flattering jeans. My second pick is ,these cute black booties with a slight heel. They are very similar to the booties I have on in the pic above(so sad they don’t have them anymore). But these are a very good alternative if you like the style. You really can’t go wrong with a black simple booties. You can wear them all fall long! For my last pick I just had to add these. I mean how sexy are these!! I can picture these red sexy booties with a hot pair of jeans, with a black body suit and some red lips, YASSS! I would also wear these with a dress. Tis the season for Booties, LOL!

Well I hope you ladies liked this post, I know some of us Mama’s don’t have much time to shop like we’d like. I want to try to make it a little easier. I hope these help! All items have been linked! Hope you lovelies have a blessed week!
