Spring Embroidery Florals

Hello Everybody!

It is great to be back on this platform and continue to share with you more photos, personal stories and inspiration with fashion, travel and photography.

For this look, my vision was to do more of an Editorial look with the fashion and location.  Both proved to be exactly what I was looking for!

Let’s start with the dress. It’s the perfect transition piece from Spring to Summer because of its light and dreamy material, but the beautiful embroidery details made it ideal to try the Spring Embroidery Floral trend that has been so popular this season.

Initially, I was tempted to try out the embroidery trend on a denim shirt or jeans, but I soon saw that everywhere (and by everywhere I mean Pinterest and Instagram) and I knew I had to challenge myself a bit more and look for other wardrobe pieces that would be different to try the trend with. I soon found this dress! (Links other similar dresses below!)

Once I found the dress, I wanted to keep my accessories more subtle so that I could let the dress stand out. So I paired it with block heels and one of my favorite small, crossbody bags. I finished off this look with a nod to my Beloved Mexico and my culture since this happened to be right on Cinco de Mayo! So I added the red flower for some of the photos above.

As for the location, this stunning scenery is only a 15 minute drive from where I currently live and had not visited it during the Spring. The focal point was the covered bridge, but once we arrived and saw the creek with its rushing water leading off to a still and peaceful lake, we knew that these photos would take on a more Editorial look.  The Spring blooms, the mountains, the setting sun, the lake and covered bridge would all be part of this Spring Embroidery Floral look!

I hope that you have enjoyed these photos! Let it continue to inspire you to try new trends and have fun with fashion. Also, to go out and explore more!

Hello everyone! Since this weekend we’re celebrating Memorial Day, I was inspired to do do a street style chic look that had a classic color combination of black and white with the added feminine touch of lace.

It goes to prove that even classic colors can be styled in a chic way with the right wardrobe piece. In this case, the dress. I love that it’s versatile for a day to night look and can easily be paired with any accessories. For this day look, I opted for strappy sandals and gold colored jewelry and handbag.

I hope that you have been inspired by the look and enjoy the pictures. Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to subscribe!

As Memorial Day approaches on Monday, let’s join in with prayers and appreciation.

Love and Peace,

 Hello everybody! As you can tell by this week’s pictures, I was inspired by the Spring Lace Up dress trend and decided to do a scenic  photo shoot with it.

The location was surreal and has become one of my favorite places that I have ever visited. The winds were chilly, but it allowed for the details of this flowy dress to be really shown of.  The dress not only has the lace up detail to it, but it is fitted at the waist and has slight ruffles on the hemline and top. These details make this a perfect day to night look simply by changing out your accessories!

I opted for a day look so I kept my accessories a little more bold. I chose (the also very on trend) tassel bag and a watch with small gold spikes.

I hope you have enjoyed the look and pictures! If so, let me know in the comments. Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to subscribe!

Love and Peace,

Hello everybody! Thank you for stopping by and checking out this week’s look: Spring Dress Inspiration.

I had so much fun with this look and location! The dress was so feminine and hit right on the over the shoulder trend, too. Also, this dress is very versatile because of the style and light colors. I personally think it’s perfect for trips to go wine tasting, brunch, and as you can tell by my pictures, picturesque countrysides.

Finding the right accessories to pair with is dress is easy and just as versatile. I opted for a whimsical and fun handbag, gold jewelry and dark blue lace up flats to complete the look.

Hope you have enjoyed the pictures and the look! Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to subscribe!

 Hello everyone! For this week’s post, I wanted to share with you easy and chic ways to update your style this Spring:  Spring Accessories.

Updating your style doesn’t necessarily mean going out and spending money on shopping because you can easily look (or in my case, raid through) your closet. And, the best way to start is looking through your accessories.

Since we’re in Spring, there will most likely be rain in the weather forecast. Why not let a pretty umbrella be your chic accessory?! So while you’re walking to and from places that you need to be, you can brighten up and add a touch of style to your wardrobe with this unexpected accessory. You might even be tempted to start singing “Umbrella” which I did and then had that song stuck in my head for awhile!

The second accessory that you can add to your Spring style is a handbag! You can keep your wardrobe in an all monochrome look and let the handbag add a pop of color and style!

Have fun this Spring incorporating these easy and chic ways to your style! Let me know in the comments below if you tried them, too.

Hello everyone! For this week’s post I wanted to share with you a Spring floral look. It’s nearly impossible to resist adding florals to your wardrobe when Spring is in full bloom!

For this look, I wanted to incorporate not only Spring florals, but also another trend, the pastel blue color. I am sure that you have seen dark florals and bright florals on wardrobe pieces, but I was very happy to see that this skirt had the pastel blue (one of the chosen colors of the year) in the whole background of the skirt.

For this look, I kept it very simple with my light sweater in a dark blue color along with my shoes so that the skirt could be the highlight of this look. I also kept my accessories in the golden hues and added a bit of edginess with the watch and it’s gold studs throughout.

I hope you have enjoyed this Spring fashion inspiration look! Let me know in the comments below if you added any Spring florals to your wardrobe as well!

For this week’s outfit, I wanted to inspire you and provide you with a tip on how to style your sleeveless dresses as we are transitioning into Spring.

There are still days where the weather is cold, but the sun is out. In the days when the weather is still balancing between Winter and Spring, the desire to bring out that nice Spring dress can be quickly put aside when the temperature starts dipping back into colder digits.

One easy way to transition your sleeveless or even V-neck dresses is to layer them up with a long sleeve blouse or even turtle neck. It will not only look chic and very trendy, but it will help you stay warm.

Let me know if you try this styling tip in the comments below.
