Yesterday I spent half of my day with Alex, giving him a small tour of Otay Ranch while also snapping a few pictures. The peacefulness and family ambiance was enough to convince him that that's the place I want to settle down in the next few years and start a family. I am extremely lucky that I have a husband that supports everything I want, and every dream I have has so far come true. Before getting too sappy, I also want to say that I am also very fortunate to have worked with the gals at Missguided because they sent me the greatest care package in the entire world! Platforms, organza, cut-outs, I got it all, and this is what makes what I do even more fun! This look was originally intended to be taken elsewhere, but I will save that for a later post!

Ayer pase el medio de mi dia con Alex, dandole la gran gira del area de Otay Ranch mientras tomamos la oportunidad de tambien tomar unas fotos. El ambiente familiar y relajado fue lo suficiente para convencerlo de que ahi es el lugar apropiado para vivir y empezar nuestra familia (suena raro, no?). Soy la mujer mas bendecida del mundo por tener un esposo que me apoya en todo, y a hecho cada sueƱo que e tenido (hasta ahora) realidad. Pero antes de ponerme a llorar y ser un poco dramatica, tambien tengo que decir que fui muy afortunada de poder haber trabajado con las nenas de Missguided porque me mandaron unas cositas super hermosas! Vestidos, plataformas, y crop tops- recibi de todo! Adoro lo que hago! 
No se les olvide seguirme en Instagram (@esmirnatapia) para seguirme dia tras dia!
Besos!

#BESTFITEVER BY ABERCROMBIE

*I created this outfit as part of a sponsored collaboration between Abercrombie & Fitch and  Socialstars by Crowdtap. All photos and opinions expressed are my own. #AFstylist #BestFitEver











I WAS WEARING:
Jacket | Jason Wu
Tank & Jeans | Courtesy of Abercrombie & Fitch
Heels | ModDeals.com

This morning I bring you a small collab I did with Abercrombie, in which I was to choose a pair of denim jeans from their recent collections to help spread the word about their #BestFitEver campaign! I of course, could not make up my mind, but opted for a pair of their super chic distressed white denim for the summer season! They say that you shouldn't wear white after Labor Day, but these will definitely be in my wardrobe for a long time to come! Cool, relaxed, and comfortable, these A&F jeans can go with anything, and you can easily take them from day to night by switching out your shoes and accessories!

MADE FOR ME










I WAS WEARING:
Crop Top & Skirt | Courtesy of eShakti
Boots | Forever 21 (old)
Purse | Kate Spade

I was approached by the wonderful people at eShakti.com to pick a crop top and skirt set of my liking to review, and I was stunned to find out just how different this brand is. You go to their website, choose whatever you'd like to purchase (anywhere from dresses, tops, pants, skirts), and here's the coolest part: they actually TAILOR the clothing you pick to be made to your size! Since they are made to order, I was even more in love! This is perfect for those occasions where you might need something quickly or cannot find in stores- it's literally like having your personal fairy godmother making everything you want, whenever you want it! How cool is that?!

BY THE SEA

Shoes | Asos.com

Currently, I am writing this just as the end of the World Cup is coming to a close (Messi, what a guy!), and I can't even believe it happened so fast! What team were you rooting for today?
This outfit was sent to me by the cool people at Choies, and I am really into mesh paneling lately. And did you see those platforms?! Who knew they'd be extremely comfortable?

Happy Sunday!

THE TINIEST CROP TOP












I WAS WEARING:
Top | Courtesy of Choies.com
Jeans | Topshop
Shoes | Moddeals.com
Purse | Marc Jacobs

In case you haven't noticed, I am a huge fan of the color mint- I have plenty of clothing pieces in that shade. It is the perfect representation of summer, and nothing makes me feel more in season than combining it with a really great pair of denim and a pair of stunning shoes. I am currently in Calexico, where I am joining my husband on a relaxing weekend before heading back to San Diego tomorrow. Sundays always suck, but I have the opportunity to go back to Arizona for a brief visit beginning Thursday night. Never thought I'd say I'm glad to be heading back to the desert!

LATE 4TH









I WAS WEARING:
Sweater | Moddeals.com
Shorts | Hollister
Shoes | Moddeals.com

It has been nearly a week since I have posted, and I wasn't even about to tonight. Good thing I have because the blog is about to get a little bit more interesting: I have a few collabs in the works with uber amazinggggg brands that I can't even handle the excitement. In other news, I will be traveling back to Arizona next weekend and preparing to endure more heat than I can imagine (on the plus size, there's a pool waiting to be used). I never thought I'd say I'd be glad to be back in the desert, but when you haven't been in your own apartment in months, I don't think there's anything better. Don't forget to follow me on Instagram @esmirnatapia so you don't miss out on the fun along the way.
