I found this cute shirt from H&M and I couldn't wait to wear it. There are so many ways that one could wear this shirt. I decided to wear it in a more casual way with jeans from the GAP. Flats and sneakers are also in this season; so instead of wearing this outfit with heels I decided to wear it with pointy flats from Forever 21. To make my outfit complete I added my red Ralph Lauren purse that I purchased from TJMaxx. It gave the look the perfect pop of color. Click on the links below to find out more on this outfit.
I wore this dress last week to take my hubby out to celebrate his birthday and I wanted to wear it again to show you what's in this fall and also how versatile this dress is. Dressy dresses with sneakers are in this season. l really love the way my sneakers stood out with the outfit; It felt balanced. I have not really done this style before and I think I was able to pull it off. The blush bomber jacket along with the blush slip on dress from Zara really brought it all together. This pair of Adidas sneakers have been my favorite since the beginning of Spring, and they continue to be for this season. And, don't worry if they get dirty; it gives them character.

In most of my recent posts I have worn a dress or a skirt, but this post is to show you a little bit of my casual side. I mostly wear jeans on the weekends because I am not allowed to at my workplace. In this post I am wearing jeans from Zara that were purchased last year. I am short so this means that I either have to roll up my pants or take them to get tailored. l recommend that you find a good seamstress near you so that whenever you need certain alterations in your clothing you can get them done. I added a plain white dressy shirt from Uniqlo. This shirt can be worn with basically anything from pants to dresses to shorts. I love how versatile it is. Since we are approaching fall and most of us are already wearing fall clothing I added a sweater from H&M. I love that the sweater brings a pop of color and it reminds me of the fall colors of a tree. I went into Zara and found these great two tone flats which are very comfortable, and you can use them everyday. Last but not least the purse I am wearing I found in TJMaxx from Anne Klein. The color is neutral and it goes perfect with the whole look. Check out the links below to find out more about the clothes in this blog.
Are you ready for the fall? Another greatitem to have this fall is floral patterns. You can find floral patterns in tops, pants, shoes etc. I found this cute fall floral pattern dress from Old Navy. It's a very versatile dress. I can add a belt to it and instead of heels I can wear flats, ankle boots, high boots and even sneakers; yet it will still go with the dress. I wore this outfit with sandals this time around because it is still very warm outside and the fabric is light enough for this weather and for the fall. Check out more about this dress on the link below.

This season is coming to an end. The kids are starting to head back to school and most things go back to normal for me as a mom. So, what better way than to end the summer season than being at the beach? I have been wanting to shoot this dress from Forever 21 at the beach since the beginning of Summer but never got the chance to do it until now at the end of it. The color of the dress is not only perfect for summer but also for the fall. I can easily change the look by adding a bomber jacket to it. It is a versatile dress at a great price. Now, this is not a, "goodbye" summer but more like a, "see you in a few." Click on the link below to check out more about Maxi dresses.

How to transition from summer to fall. For many (like myself) it's hard to say goodbye to summer especially if you are living in NYC which gets cold during the winter days (let's not think about that yet); so we tend to really appreciate summer days, and it is why it's hard to let it go. I know many of us this summer have gotten many slip on dresses because they are a great on the go item. You can put them on with basically any type of shoes. So in the post we are not letting go of our slip on dress now that fall is here. Instead, we are going to introduce the slip on dress with a tee under. In this post I put on a slip on dress from TopShop that I bought on Nordstrom and I added the white tee from Zara. I made the look a little more fall like by adding a grey open toe shoes from Adam Tucker that I got at DSW (they have a great selection of fall shoes). Also one great thing about slip on dresses is that you can also use a regular shirt, sweater or a jacket, and it changes the look from summer to fall.

I was searching on Pinterest (which I love) and came across this store that has great items and a good price range. I purchased this cute little summer top from them. I love the details of the flowers and the open back design. The top goes perfectly with shorts, skirts, and long pants. They have many other great pieces as well. Check them out by clicking on the link below.

The last country I visited on my European trip was Monaco. It is such a clean and rich little country; little because it is only three miles long and one mile wide. It's even smaller than my home country of Puerto Rico. Monaco is roughly the same size as Central Park! We were able to take the local bus around the whole country. I did a little shoot around some of the great spots in Monaco. I wore a forever 21 stripe skirt (one of my favorite skirts this summer) with a black bodysuit from Zara that I got on sale for just $12.99. Zara has been having a summer sale therefore you should check it out in stores and online. The shoes are again another favorite of mine from Forever 21. I had a great time in Monaco. It is a wonderful place to visit. Check out the links below if you are interested in any items from this blog.

The next stop on our two week vacation was France. I had such a great time and had the opportunity to visit a couple of places in France like Cannes, Nice, and Marseilles. What better place to do a little shoot than here. In this shoot we were in Marseilles, France and I am wearing a wrap denim dress that I purchased at Gap. I love everything about this Gap dress. It has a nice open back. It is also very comfortable. I wore it during hot temperatures above 90 and we walked a lot. There was not a time that I felt that I was too hot because of the dress.
I found a cute women's clothing store online called Shein. I have a couple of items that are on my list of clothing that I would love to purchase from them. They have different styles that are in season. I wrote this post to share some of the items that I will be buying, and, you can also click on the images below if you are interested in checking them out.
This summer we started our vacation in Italy and we rented a home in Vico Equense, Italy. It was a small town atop the mountains that was filled with loving people and Italian culture. The views from the home were spectacular. I decided to do a little shoot from the pool and some local streets. I wore an off the shoulder rose colored dress from Forever 21. I purchased the dress in the store for under $25. One of this summer's trends is tops and dresses that are off the shoulder. If you can try to own one of these pieces. It gives a little sexy and fun flair to your look. I had such a great time in Italy. We visited amazingly beautiful places like the Amalfi coast, Rome, Sorrento, Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, and Capri. Italy has such a great culture and its people are beyond kind hearted. I can't wait to go back one day!

Jumpsuits are in again this year and for this blog I found myself a nice white jumpsuit. This outfit actually looks like I am wearing a top with shorts, but it is Zara simply one piece. I bought the outfit at the store for $39.99. I searched for it online but they are no longer have it available. Sorry guys! But, I have added a link with reasonably price jumpsuits from different stores for under $40. Check out the links below. This time of year is great to buy a one piece item. You simply put it on and go. It is as simple as that. You can dress this piece up with heels and the right accessories, or you can you put onflats and make it a comfortable piece. Make sure to pick up one of these pieces and add it to your closet this summer!

I went to celebrate my anniversary with the hubby and we spent a night at a nice little town in Connecticut called Norwalk. Everything is very close by the Inn where stayed in. During our night out we decided to go to a new Latin Fusion restaurant called Aji 10. I decided to wear this cute forever 21 open back dress for $24.90 that I purchased at the store. I looked online to see if I can post the link to the dress in this blog but couldn't find it. A lot of pieces that you find at the store you can't find online. So, if you are interested in this item I would suggest to go to the Forever 21 store. It was a great dress to go out at night with the hubs.
Old Navy has gone a long way since the days of its inception. They have expanded their market from young children and teenagers to young adults and older adults. Old Navy has a lot of great pieces from sandals, dresses, shorts, shirts and bags. You will definitely find something that you like. This Old Navy linen dress is perfect for those spring and summer days. The fabric is light and loose. Check out Old Navy's various selections at your local store or online.
I was super excited when I first found out that I was going to be a mother. My husband and I had planned the pregnancy. I really wanted to be a mother and carry a life for 9 months. I never knew then how much my daughter was going to change my life and how much I was going to love this tiny little creature, but I instantly fell in love. No one tells you how hard it is to be a mother; the countless times you have to wake up in the middle of the night, the times that they get sick and you can't leave their sight until they feel better, or all the times they fall and hurt themselves and you feel helpless. I have cried many times, especially when my daughter was younger. She had a lot of energy more than Iwas ready to handle. She would want to climb anything and would run around nonstop. She would fall and hurt herself a lot, and I would call my mom crying about it. I hated the feeling of helplessness. My mother would give me words of encouragement and would make me feel at ease. Motherhood is about trying to control your child's environment and make sure your child is okay, but at the same time feeling like you have no control of anything. Regardless of the difficulties of motherhood I would never trade it in for anything in the world. For this Mother's Day I decided to do a little special shoot with my baby girl (she will always be my baby in my eyes) and spend a special moment together. These are the moments that last a lifetime. I hope you have a great Mother's Day!

I usually buy clothing that is versatile; clothing that can be worn in multiple ways. I like to purchase different types of tops and bottoms to have many options to mix and match. This week's items can be used in many ways. I wore an off the shoulder top with a denim skirt. With this outfit I went with heels, but you can wear this outfit with practically any type of footwear. These items are not only versatile, but they can also be bought at a great price at Forever 21. Check out the links below if you are interested in any of the items from this post.

The warmer weather has begun in NYC and the spring jackets are out. Everyone is out and about wearing their spring and summer outfits. I found this great spring/summer dress at forever 21 for $12.90. I bought it in a nice blue color. The best part about the dress is that you can wear it with heels, sandals, or sneakers. You can use it for the beach as a cover up or you can dress it up for a night out on the town. I think it's a great piece to own. I also bought this boater hat from Forever 21, which is a great quality for the just $14.90. You can have great pieces in your closet for under $20 each.
As the weather in NYC becomes warmer the layers start coming off. We begin wearing less bulky items. The other day I went out with a couple of friends and decided to wear something light since it was a really pleasant weekend in NY. I wore a light weight button down shirt from H&M; perfect for spring weather. I paired it up with high waisted jeans from forever 21. Lastly, I went into Marshall's a couple of weeks ago and found these great suede Steve Madden pumps. The aviator glasses are from Ray-ban. I love their selection because their styles go perfect with my small framed face. Now that spring has officially begun, begin to shed your winter weight off by taking off those winter layers.
I am usually a dress up kind of gal. I love heels, and I have many, but what you usually find little of in my closet are sneakers. I am not such a sneaker fan, but lately I have been wanting to dress a little more comfortably, especially when running errands, so I decided to go sneaker shopping and came across the adidas Stan Smith edition. These sneakersbrought back so many memories of when I was younger (it is as if I had taken a time machine into the past). I remember having these sneakers in several different colors. They were my go to sneakers. Since I loved them when I was younger I gave them another go, and I am in love all over again! This time around Adidas has made these sneakers a lot more comfortable by adding an otholite cushion inside. I purchased them from footlocker for $65 in a kid's size because the smallest women's sizes fit me too big. If you are in search of sneakers that are not used with the intention of running and exercising then you should definitely try these Adidas.
