“#CoachSpring2016 Campaign”

Hey guys!  I feel like it’s been a while since my last blog post.  I’ve been on duty and on the go lately so it’s been a challenge trying to keep up!  I’m finally blogging about my Instagram project/collaboration with Coach for their #CoachSpring2016 campaign.  I am honored (and thrilled!) to be a part of such a fun project!  I spent the day in San Francisco with the help of my sister, Gladys (photographer extraordinaire) and much-needed assistance from my good friend, Andrea.  This shoot wouldn’t have been possible without you two, so thank you!

We shot two looks throughout the city featuring The Coach Swagger 20 mini bag and the C101 Low Top Sneaker.  Hope you guys like it!

Look #1:

Let me tell you about the cutest little bag: The Coach Swagger 20.  This pretty little thing matches my petite frame, but still makes room for my daily essentials.  It also comes with a strap if you’re a hands-free type of gal.  Perfect for roaming around in the city when you’re always on the go like me!






Look #2:

The white sneaker is the most coveted pair of shoes that are in every fashionista’s closet lately.  They’re cute, comfortable, and will go with just about everything.  The pink stitching on my Coach C101 Low Tops brings a nice feminine touch!  What’s not to love about these?  Heart emojis all the way!







Hope you guys liked my long and overdue post!  I apologize that it took so long to share!  I also wanted to take the time to thank you all for your continuous support of my blog!  I reached 10.5 K followers on my Instagram page recently and I am beyond grateful for each and single one of you!  My appreciation is boundless. ❤

“Will you be my Valentine?”

We are almost halfway through February and Valentine’s day is just around the corner.  Love is in the air and so are the reds, pinks and floral prints in my wardrobe!  Is it weird to fall in love with an outfit?  Because this look has got me hooked and I am in love!

Nothing says romantic and flirty like a floral maxi dress.  I picked up this red beauty in the early fall months (when it was still warm) and wore it constantly! I have always been a fan of floral prints and maxi dresses and I just fell in love when I saw my two favorite things in one amazing piece!  I love the colors of the flowers and check out the periwinkle-colored leaves! So pretty! The mixing of colors were unexpected and compliments the red very well.  This beautiful dress is airy and flows well while you are walking that it almost looks like you are floating!    And the open back detail?  I can’t even!  It gives a subtle sexiness without showing too much skin.  This is by far my favorite dress and I try to wear it throughout all seasons.  I simply wore a leather jacket over it as a warm layer (it’s still winter in California) and my black mules.  The only accessories I added here are my sunnies (a must for me) and the simple elegance of crossbody bag in a bright shade.  Don’t you just love the pop of neon against the red fabric?  I love putting things together that are unexpected!

Romantic outfit with a little edge for Valentine’s day?  I heart it.  ❤
