I love neutral colors so the first look incorporates a lot of it!
If you're in a colder climate, this look would definitley keep you looking amazing while keeping you warm.
When choosing your textures, it's best to go with a thick knit sweater to pair with your skirt.



  




This second look is best suited for those fall days, not too cold not too warm. I paired a flannel with this skirt to play with pattern. I chose to pair boots with this look as well so that you can dress this look up and not be too casual, besides fall tends to bring out the best in our closets.

The last look is meant for those casual days that you want to feel more relaxed in. That is why I chose to pair the skirt with sneakers and a light jean shirt, again it's great to play with material and textures. Styling Leather Skirts 03

School Girl Blues

Dec 6, 2015


Hi Luvs,
For most of us the school year is coming to a close and we are gearing up for finals. If you're like me and you work and go to school, you're probably on the verge of locking yourself away and eating really badly in order to stay awake to study/deal with your finals.
But, all is well because soon you'll get a break and get to relax a bit.
Anyways, I wanted to document an outfit that perfectly fits my state of mind at this point in the semester, which is:
I may be cracking under pressure, but at least I'll be cute while doing it!

Cafe Truths >>> Tierra Mia Coffee

Oct 27, 2015



 In all truth, this jem was found during an attempt to find a cafe that wasn't too far away so that me and my babe Mariana could chill.
And boy did we come up!

Walking in this place immediatley gave me a "at home" vibe. 
Sometimes I think there are cafe's that really make you feel welcomed and not so artificial.
Tierra Mia wasn't consumed with the "hipster, way too invested design," and wasn't trying to shove a particular aesthetic at me.

It was a very simple, modern atmosphere steeped in central american culture.
Literally, on the walls you could see frames filled with pictures of how they make their ingredients and the story behind it and it's amazing.



Not only was the place pretty funky, but it was hands down some of the best pastries I've tasted in all my gentrified cafe neighborhood visits, only minus the gentrified neighborhood.
Very community oriented!
Very soft, buttery pastries!
  I had to come back on multiple occasions and different locations.



Majority of the time I don't care about aesthetics and I search for places that invite me in and give off great vibes. I find myself in a lot of amazing places that creates a space for me to write and talk without feeling uncomfortable.

"And the idea of just wandering off to a cafe with a notebook and writing and seeing where that takes me for awhile is just bliss."

October in Neutrals

Oct 15, 2015


Hey luvs!
In Cali, the heat just keeps on rolling through, however many of you are finally starting to see signs of fall and well, I am just going to pretend it's in the low 70's for now.
This look was inspired by my lack of wanting to put together a outfit and my drive to still look amazing, lol.
It's comfortable, chic, and the perfect look to transition into fall with.

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES

Oct 5, 2015



Hey Luvs,
We are already in the first week of October and in Cali it's finally starting to feel like fall, well at least the nights are colder. But no matter, as we amp up for fall, and it is time to put our sundresses, shorts and things we loved in the summer away. And before I do, I would like to share my September favorites, when the weather was still hitting the high 90s.

September was definitely one of those odd months of the year for me, so many new changes and transitions occurred. So bear with my non-too conventional favorites post!
