Today's quick post is brought to you in part of the fact that I have to take my (soon-to-be) broken down laptop (cue tears). Well, I am not entirely sure this is what's going to happen to my MacBook, but I hope not because I CLEARLY need this thing for more than one thing (Pinterest and catching up on Sons of Anarchy, helloooo)! Do you watch the show? Gimme all your thoughts on it! I don't want it to end!
On another note, the babes at Fevrie gifted me one of the most comfortable and gorgeous cardigans I've ever owned; even the color is perfect! Since apparently a bit of summer is still felt here in San Diego, I chose to wear it with one of my favorite Forever 21's skirts and some chunky heels for added chicness! What did you think of the look?
Chin up cuties, it's almost Thanksgiving! XOXO

The week is finally here, which has finally got me a bit excited (excluding that flying & airport part) about heading to the Grand Canyon for Thanksgiving. It's crazy to think that I lived there for almost 4 years and I never quite made it out there. For now, I bring you this outfit I received from the babes at Missguided. It may be extra chilly in the mornings, but by noon you can still feel extremely warm, and that's the time that this outfit comes into play. Paired with a chic moto jacket for the colder evenings, you are sure to have the look all of your friends will be wanting to steal from you.

Have a great (short) week!

It has been a little crazy lately with planning holiday events, work, and personal things that I haven't had time to post! I was inspired to put this outfit together because of these things going on in my life, and also because I had a few ideas in mind when it came to getting dressed up for this season's festivities. I think I kept it simple and chic, right? Let me know what you think of this look and make sure to tag me on Instagram (@esmirnatapia) in your #ootd pictures so I can get an idea of what to wear for the rest of the year! I'm always inspired by others' ideas and styles, so I can't wait to see yours!
Happy weekend! xx

What can I say? It's Friday Eve (as I like to call it), I get to see Alex tomorrow, and I am about to shower and snuggle up and catch up on some Sons of Anarchy (thanks, Leslie!). I am still on season six so NO SPOILERS! I wanted to save this post for the weekend, but I felt like I had that weirdly urgent sense to write to you, whoever you may be reading this (thank you!). And also because I kinda liked this "not giving a f*ck" outfit. I've been meaning to buy this exact basic top all three times I had gone to H&M before this final time, and I finally caved in because NEWSFLASH, it's still like 80 degrees in this state. I feel as if I can't even walk into a damn Target or dollar store without going a little nuts with the Christmas music on repeat. And let's not talk about the decorations- they've been there since BEFORE Halloween. Like, really. 
While getting dressed, I knew that I had to wear at least one piece of jewelry, so here we are with another gorg piece from my new designer friend babe, Tatum from Love Tatum! I have the tiniest wrists in the entire world, so this was the perfect accessory because you can twist it in a way that both ends are on top of the other (weirdly explained, so just look at the pictures). It reminds me of my wedding and how I had to custom make my bracelets because nothing on Earth fit me the way I wanted it to. What do you think of it's "dalmation" design? So different, I love it. 
I hope you babes have a lovely weekend! xx

It is about that time- the time in which I begin to panic just a bit because the holidays are here. Even though I am not the biggest fan of the winter festivities (as much as I'd like to be), it is always a reminder that I should really be grateful instead. Most of the time I believe we forget how truly blessed we are- that we have family, friends, food, a home, clothes...! With this said, I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to work with local San Diego jewelry designer, Tatum Lenahan, the force behind Love Tatum, one of the most unique collections I've ever laid eyes on! She knew my style right from the start and gifted me items she knew I'd fall in love with- she was totally right.
What do you think of the jewels?! Make sure to shop on her site ASAP for these and more chic pieces, right on time for the holidays, too! XX

Es ese tiempo en el cual empiezo a ponerme nerviosa porque ya llegaron las fiestas del fin del año. Aunque no soy la fan mas grande te esas cosas, siempre recuerdo que debo de pensar que soy muy suertuda y estoy bendecida porque tengo comida, familia, amigos, ropa....! Tocando ese tema, me agrada traerles esta colaboración con una diseñadora de joyería de
aqui de San Diego, Tatum Lenahan, la fuerza detrás de su tienda y colección, Love Tatum. Ella supo mi estilo y gustos desde el principio, y no me pude decidir cual pieza llevarme! Que piensan de la joyas? Preciosas, no?

'TIS THE SEASON FOR A&F

*I put together an Abercrombie & Fitch® holiday outfit as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions expressed are entirely my own. #afstylist

And just like that the holidays are here. It was last Saturday (the day after Halloween) that I saw five Christmas-related commercials while watching television. As always, I think we question the fact that a new year is upon us and whether we will actually follow our resolutions this time. But before this, we have plenty of holiday parties we need to gear up for, and with this in mind, I have teamed up with Abercrombie & Fitch to bring you a glimpse into their holiday collection (now in stores), which includes chic outerwear, sweaters, scarves, and more! Of course, when it comes to my personal style (and the fact that it is still very warm in Southern California), I tend to really mix it up when it comes to certain pieces, so it's no surprise that I threw on this amazing faux fur jacket with a pair of casual sneakers. This is a look that reminds me of nights out with friends during the holidays when we were all home from college on break. Where would you use this combo to? Get to your nearest A&F store for this and more outfits ASAP and take your pick! xx

Follow me on Instagram @esmirnatapia & tag me on all of your holiday photos! I wanna see what YOU'RE wearing this season!

Y así de rapido ya llegaron las fiestas navideñas. Era el sábado pasado (el dia después de Halloween) que mire cinco comerciales de Navidad en la television. Y como siempre, nos ponemos a pensar en que que rapido termino el año y si tal vez esta vez vamos a cumplir con nuestras resoluciones. Pero antes de esto, tenemos eventos de la temporada a las cuales debemos de asistir, y con esto en mente, me e juntado con Abercrombie & Fitch para traerles unos looks de su coleccion de invierno (que ya esta en tiendas), que incluye chaquetas, suéteres, bufandas, y mucho mas! Claro, cuando se trata de mi estilo personal (y tambien que aqui en San Diego todavia hace mucho calor durante el dia), me gusta intercambiar tendencias, así que no es sorpresa que me puse esta chaqueta de piel sintetica con unos tenis casuales. Este look me recuerda a las vacaciones de Navidad cuando todos mis amigos y yo nos juntábamos cuando regresábamos del colegio. A donde usarias esta combinación? Encuentra estas piezas en el sitio de Abercrombie & Fitch o en tu tienda A&F mas cercana!

Sigueme en Instagram @esmirnatapia y etiquetame en todas tus fotos de la temporada! Quiero ver lo que ustedes se pondran!
