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.

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.

10 month blog update/life update

10 month blog update/life update

Hello my beautiful ladies! Today I wanted to give you all a blog update and life update. If you’re new to my blog. Every month I’ve written a blog update. I wanted to have my first year in blogging documented not only for myself to go back and see my growth, but for others that are thinking about starting a blog.

So today is exactly 10 months since my first post. I still get butterflies when I hit the post button. No matter what or how long I do this. I think I’ll always feel a little nervous posting. With the worry of will people read, will people like the post, will people think I’m lame, LOL! You know all the worries I shouldn’t have. As my blogging journey continues, I’m learning so much and loving every minute of it.  Blogging has helped me step out of my mom routine to use my creative side and talk about things I love. I try to stay as true to myself in all my blog post and my instagram post. It hasn’t been easy, I honestly commend all the bloggers that have been in the game for years. I have learned the most important rule of blogging is consistency. Don’t give up keep posting content. Don’t post just to post. Make sure you post something worth reading and looking at. I don’t have time to waste and I don’t think my readers do to. So when I’m getting ready to post I really put my heart in all post. They honestly come from my true self. When I’m writing I put myself in a space talking to my good friends.

What to expect from my blog. I plan to bring more Family life to my Blog. Because that’s my life. I found myself getting a little stressed and giving myself anxiety just trying to think of what fashion post to put up or what’s the news styles we all need to have. I mean don’t get me wrong , I will still post about fashion and the coolest styles. But I will add more family moments and family talk to my blog. I can’t wait and Believe me it won’t be boring. I really hope you all follow along my blogging journey because I’m not stopping anytime soon!

Life update! Well I’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety lately. I haven’t felt like this in a really long time. It’s getting better. I work out twice a day just to relieve the anxiety. I haven’t pin pointed the cause. But it will get better. I have to keep telling myself to slow down and breathe. I think Mom life can get a little overwhelming for all. If you experience anxiety just slow down and really focus on you. I really feel exercising helps.

On a brighter note. I have something super exciting coming later this year. And let me tell you after summer break with the kiddos home and back to school madness. This upcoming adventure will be so needed. I will be attending my lovely cousins wedding in Punta Cana. My kids and hubby will not be going. SO that’s major for me. I haven’t left my breaker ever. So when i decided to go I had so many thoughts in my head. You know the mom guilt. But I really am so happy to be going for my cousin. I get to enjoy some R&R with my family. My mom included, I’m so excited. And believe me follow me on instagram because I will for sure be posting there. I’ll be posting a packing guide for the blog right before. It will be destination wedding packing. And I’ll be posting a recap of my vacay after. So please stay tuned to what I have in store for Stylesencillo.com.

I love all of you that take the time to read my post. And appreciate the sweet comments. Thank you thank you. Means the world to me. Till next post.
