Sandals you need for Spring/Summer

Sandals you need for Spring/Summer

Hello Friends! Happy first day of spring! I hope you all are doing well. I Figured I’d keep the theme of  March for the Blog spring. So my favorite of course are shoes. So what better post but to share all my spring shoe favorites. I love me a good sandal. It can be a flat, a chunky heel, a short heel or even a sexy heel. But Let’s get real I’m a mom and I need kid friendly shoes. And I’m just all about comfort and cute.

So I’ve gathered a few different styles to share and from three of my favorite shoe places. I think these are all great prices. It’s always good to buy a good pair of neutral sandals a better quality because they will be your favorite. I’m still wearing a pair I bought 2 years ago from Aldo that I love.

So here goes, First picks are from Steve madden, I love a slide so much so you will notice most are slides. I don’t care for a sandal that goes around the toe area unless it’s a flip-flop. Which the hubs can’t stand for me to wear, LOL! Slides are comfy and they look stylish.

Second are from Aldo, you ladies know I love Aldo shoes. I’m never disappointed and they are pretty comfortable. They have the best styles to choose from. These were my favorite for spring. I also added a cute mule, I love me a cute spring mule.

And last but not least because these are the best for our wallets! So that means we can buy more pairs. Target, Yes ladies these are all from target. As you can see I found the most and I love all of them. I’m living for the blue slides with a chunky heel I need these ASAP! Most of these are under $30 and they are so cute. I read a few reviews on most and all great.

So ladies I’ve made it easy for you to grab those cute sandals for spring and summer so all you have to do is go grab them before it’s too late. Don’t wait for summer to snag these!

Hope you liked this post, Till next post.

My 2018 Fall fashion wish list

My 2018 Fall fashion wish list

Hello my beauties! How are you all doing?! I’m over here being Mom. Back To homework, projects, Dances! It’s all fun stuff. I love being mom. My oldest is off to Homecoming this Weekend, So that’s exciting. He’s actually letting me style him, LOL! I’m hoping he lets me take a pic. So look out on Instagram for that.

We all know Fall is coming and pumpkin spice has already made its debut at Starbucks. It’s like as soon as you see that pumpkin spice on the menu, Fall is in the air. Fall officially kicks off Sept 22! So that means fall styles are already at your favorite stores. I haven’t done much fall shopping since I’m off to my vacay soon. I’m still kind of stuck on summer style. But as soon as the weather drops over here in LA, I have my wish list.

First I’m sharing my Target finds. Target is so good and you can’t beat the prices. With all the cool brands at Target you know you can always find the It styles. One of my favorite looks for the fall are silk like skirts. These can be dressed up or casual. Look out for my fall look coming to the blog soon in this leopard skirt. I’ll share how I styled this cute skirt. Leopard is going to be all around this season. I’m not mad at that. It’s so fun. They also have the same skirt in this pretty bronze like color.

Next would be one of my favorite stores that never let’s me down. Whenever I have somewhere to go, I can always count on Zara to have something cute. My list for Zara would need its own post, LOL! So I’m just sharing some basics you can wear all season long and winter. You can pair this body suit with jeans, skirts, shorts (if in la) just about any kind of bottom. I’m loving the sleeves on this body suit. Jeans I mean we all need that perfect pair. I love Zara jeans. The price is good and you can find any style you like. Another trend I’m liking is the Vinyl purses. How great would it be to not change your purse all season if you just get one of the vinyl bags that match everything. I really liked this one.

Last for Clothes would be Urban Outfitters. It’s a store I don’t buy much from. But they have some cute fall staples I really want this year. Like I said I tend to stick to basics. I’ll add the newest earring or maybe a newer shoe style to give my simple outfit that added flare. I’m definitely getting this fleece coat. I had so much FOMO last year when I saw everyone wearing it, I just never purchased it. But for sure this year. Another one I feel everyone needs is a jean jacket. They go with everything. You can’t go wrong with a Jean jacket.

Last on my list would be my absolute favorite, SHOES! I love shoes. If I could, I would have a room filled with shoes. But I don’t so I limit my purchases and try to sell or donate shoes I don’t use anymore. Which I’m kicking myself because not too long ago I got rid of some leopard pumps from BCBG, I swear whoever found those at the goodwill I donated to are lucky! But I’m happy for whoever scored them. So in right now, UGH! These are my picks. I’m not sure which ones I’m going to splurge on. But I will be getting at least one pair. These are all from ALDO.

Hope you all liked my wish list! Can’t wait to style some fall looks! Have a great rest of the week and enjoy that Pumpkin spice! Till next post.

How to make a $10 dress chic

How to make a $10 dress chic

Hello Ladies! Hope you are all well. So my kids are officially done with summer. Both boys are back in school. We are back to getting our school routine down and both had great first days. As for myself, this week already is a bit overwhelming. Just trying to get stuff done and run errands. I already made a promise, that I would try to take some of my free time for myself. I’m always trying to get a million things done in my free time. On Monday since it was my first day to have free time. I really over did it. I ran so many errands in 3 hours that I felt exhausted. I will not do that again.

imageimageFacetune_20-08-2018-13-50-31

Today I wanted to share a simple look. The best thing is the dress was under $10. I mean who doesn’t like a great deal. Such a simple dress like this you can wear it so many ways. I added some cute mauve color sandal heels and some fun earrings. Super simple yet chic. I would wear this to a more casual day wedding or any day event.  With this color you can add any color shoe. Even a pump will look great.

Another way I would style this dress for a more fun casual wear. I would add a white tee under and pair it with some cute sneakers, some flat shoes or sandals. Even add a jean jacket over with a pair of bootie boots for the fall. Such a versatile dress. Comes in different colors and some prints. 

I wanted to give a short update. So if you’ve been reading my blog you know I was updating every month on how I felt and where I was with blogging. Last month was my year and I do have a post on that. It’s been going well. I’ve reached out to different brands and people on possible collaborations. Unfortunately I haven’t booked any. It can be discouraging. I’m still trying to grow my following. It can be overwhelming. I have enough confidence in myself to keep going and keep trying. I know it takes time and all I can do is be consistent and keep moving forward. I don’t let the No’s or the ones who just ignore get to me. To me it’s business not personal. These people don’t know me so I don’t ever let it bring me down. A learning lesson in any kind of business don’t ever let it get to you personally. If anything it pushes me more to try harder.

Always thank you to all of you who always take the time to read my blogs. Till next post.

Mommy and Mini spring style

Mommy and Mini spring style

Hello my loves! Spring is in the air and I’m loving it. Did you all check out my spring favorites post?! We are enjoying the nice weather so much. We’ve started up our daily evening walks again. When the time changes and the weather is perfect we get in an evening walk when the Hubs gets home. We love it, We walk around our area try to get 2 miles in. And this weekend Breaker learned how to ride his big boy bike(training wheels).  So he rode his bike on our walk for the first time this week and did so good. It’s a nice way to get some family time in away from phones and exercise.

So Mom life update. I’m starting to figure out some things to do once the kids are off for summer. I’ll be putting up a blog post on some of the ideas I get. trying to stay local, inexpensive and good for both my 14-year-old and 4-year-old. I really want to get more outdoors with them before it gets too hot. So stay tuned for what I come up with!

Today’s blog post is all about spring style.  And I have my side kick to show how to jazz up a boys spring outfit. I absolutely love blazers. They looks so good with denim. It’s really a favorite look of mine. I did a blazer look a few post back with jeans. Now that we are in spring, I think this look is so appropriate for the season.

Processed With Darkroom

My look I pretty much had everything I’m wearing since last year other than the blazer. I purchased the blazer right before Easter from Target. I also spotted the same blazer in pink. I think I’ll be snagging that too. My shorts I purchased about 2 years ago from Urban outfitters. I love them. It’s so hard to find the perfect pair of Jean shorts. My shoes are from Aldo I love them and they are on sale now. I added some orange earrings to jazz it up. Some tips I have, with just adding a new pair of earrings or a blazer to some items you already have in your closet can really make a new cute look. Shop within your closet I bet you can make a cute look!

For Breakers look I wanted to spice up his shorts and plain white tee. He was in a wedding a couple of weeks ago and This was his blazer to his suit. I’m trying to get more wears before it doesn’t fit. It was a linen suit so perfect for spring. I love adding jean jackets or cute cardigans to his outfits. They just make a plain outfit look so much cuter. With boys outfits can get pretty plain. So I always find ways to make my boys outfits pop!

Hope you like my Mommy and Mini spring style and got some helpful tips. You ladies have a great week! Till next post.

Spring shoe style

Spring shoe style

Hello Ladies! Hope you all are doing well! Spring is finally here and I can’t be any happier. Something about spring colors and weather makes me so happy. I think the only thing I don’t like about spring is the allergies I get. But nothing a little allergy medicine can’t fix, LOL!

My boys are off of school next week for spring break. We having nothing planned yet but hopefully we can get a few fun things in. Sometimes it’s hard when you have kids so far apart because a place that will be fun for Breaker(my 4-year-old) is not fun for David(my 14-year-old). So I try to find in between places. But that’s not always easy. The good thing is my oldest is really patient and good with his brother. That helps a lot.

Today’s Blog post is on shoe styles that will help you transition into spring from Winter. Spring is still not that Hot for summer style shoes. But warm enough for some cute open toe or peep toes! I love shoes. I think if I wasn’t on a budget I would have a mountain of shoes. A shoe will always fit no matter what. And they can just liven up any outfit. I’m a very simple dresser, So shoes have always been my accessory that pops! Besides my earrings.

First shoe style I felt will be a cool transition for spring are these booties with a peep toe. They will look so cute with jeans, dresses or some cute cut offs. And will work for a night out because they will keep your feet warm for the chillier spring nights and will also show off your cute pedi!

Second style are these floral booties. I’m kind of obsessing over floral right now. I think  floral booties or a cute floral pump will be perfect for a spring outfit. The booties will look cute with a jean skirt, dress or some jeans. And the shoes will be your show stopper for your outfit.

IMG_1239

Third shoe style will most likely be my go to. You can’t go wrong with a sneaker. I’m loving the Nike Cortez right now. These are navy with a pop of pink. I will also be purchasing a white classic van and a checkered slip on van. I think if you are a busy mom running around but want to look cool and stay on trend you can’t go wrong with these. I will be pairing my sneakers with a cute tank dress, some crop skinny jeans or some spring style dresses. I think they will look so cute with a more feminine look.

I will be posting outfits with these shoes very soon so stay tuned! and I will link some shoes below that will rock your spring style! Hope you ladies liked this post. Have a great week and Weekend! Till next post.
