Can you believe that 2013 has come to a close? So many crazy things happened this year (graduated college, started my career in the fashion industry, traveled to places I've never been before, among many other things), and I can't wait to see what next year brings. It seems as though I might finally be closer to starting my own family (gasp!), and it will be one year less that we live in Arizona. Life is too good.

Monday, December 30, 2013Outfit of the Day, Teen Vogue, teenvogue, winter
This past week was a hectic one; I worked on Monday, and on Tuesday we flew out to San Diego for Christmas, and flew back the next day. This was the outfit I wore on Christmas Day, and for our flight back. Without knowing, I wore all black, and surprisingly, I liked it. I worked Thursday and Friday, and afterward, drove back to California to celebrate my husband's birthday. I can't believe it's already almost 2014- sounds strange even saying that! Make it a good one beauties!

I hope you had a very happy holiday this week! Here is a quick post from last weekend, where I combined denim with stripes, and a pop of color! Surprisingly, it is a look I've never tried before, but I ended up loving. What do you think of it?

Sequins are one those things that brighten up any room (literally & metaphorically), and during the holidays they can certainly be very forgiving when wanting to wear them on the daily. As you can obviously tell, I am extremely pale (I sort of really love that about me), and most colors look great against my skin tone. This combination of sequins on this $10 H&M dress had me paying for the dress before even knowing if it would truly fit me, but it fit like a glove, and I can't wait until it makes another appearance this season.
The clutch was sent to me by the lovely people at Winky Designs (see their super cute stuff here), and besides the fact that it completely matched my outfit, it fits everything plus more! The store also offers fashion watches, bracelets, and other sequin clutches in a variety of colors. Right now they are offering FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING until the end of the year, as well as 25% off their Oh So Clutch! Collection!
As a special treat to my followers, if you shop anytime between now until midnight on January 1st,you can also use the code PLATFORMSFORBREAKFAST13 to give you an additional 10% off an item of your choice!
What are you waiting for? Get on it!

I am not the greatest fan of midi skirts (they are skirts that fall right below your knees, but above your ankles), because being the petite girl that I am, it's not the most flattering look. This skirt was found at Goodwill, and the color is the first thing I fell for. It was perfect for the fall season- such a steal! This ivory knit and the studded heels were the perfect complement to my already gorgeous skirt and sealed the deal beautifully.

With Christmas less than a week away, if you're like me, you're probably still procrastinating and have no idea what you'll be wearing that day. Believe it or not, it's almost the end of December and I feel like there has been absolutely NO winter season in Arizona; or much of the west coast for that matter. That's why I chose this romper; it is perfect for parties where it may not be as cold because the shorts complement the long sleeves. The fact that it's lined also provides a little bit more warmth to the body.

Do you ever have those times where you are going out right after work with no time to stop to change at home? This happens a lot during the holidays, with so many office parties, or even if you're the date to someone else's work party. One of the biggest favors you can do yourself (no matter where you work) is to prepare a complete outfit you can wear to work and transition into a nighttime one without the hassle of taking an extra duffle bag to do so. If you don't necessarily work in a complete business setting, you can take a button-up blouse and basic blazer to wear during your day, and then switch out your bottoms into a cute skirt and pumps afterward. You can also spice up your hair and makeup by creating a messy bun with a few stray hairs around the front frame of your face and adding a colorful lipstick to complete your look! Grab your favorite clutch and you're set! You'll have everyone talking even after the party is over.

For the holidays, I have decided to put together a few outfits that would differently fit any type of affair you'll be invited to this season. This Asos dress has been one of my favorites ever since I spotted it in-between dress racks at Goodwill. Yes. This is thrifted. And it is beyond amazing! It has a bit of a strange fit (looser on the top, while it is very fitted under the waist), but it's because it's so different that I am in love with it. This is the type of outfit I would wear to a more formal event, such as a company party, a family get-together at my in-laws, or a great dinner out with friends.

Here is the outfit that I wore on the last day of our weekend in San Francisco. I am in love with this chunky sweater from Forever 21 (I've worn it quite a bit since buying it a few weeks ago!), and the chilly weather was perfect enough to pair it with my teal tights. It's pretty simple, but it was also very comfortable- which was important when exploring a new city!

This past weekend, on Saturday the 23rd to be exact, it was Alex and I's "official" 1 year (marriage) anniversary. I had no idea where he was taking me- he just told me to pack and I'd figure out the rest later. Well, of course, I was completely surprised when we arrived to the airport and headed first class (surprise #1!) to San Francisco. It's somewhere we had always wanted to go and everything there was beyond amazing. We explored the city Saturday & part of Sunday before heading back to Arizona- it was perfect. Here is a peek at our random adventure.

I'm not one to really care for other's opinions, and I let my wardrobe speak for itself. I was attracted to this Nasty Gal x Lazy Oaf dress when I was browsing Nasty Gal's site for the perfect birthday dress. This is a bit (lot!) different than a lot of what I have worn before, and it would get people talking more since I stepped across the border into Mexicali to go clubbing for my special night. I didn't want to take it off.
What do you think of outspoken outfits such as this?

Before I get to the story of this past weekend (one for the books!), here is a look I put together the weekend before. This outfit is one of my favorites because it's playful, yet very chic looking. You could always substitute the chunky heels I wore for some super cute flats, sneakers, or even wedges! The shoes are key- they're the essential that can take you from day to night in a snap!
How would you switch the outfit up?

I am not one to usually stray away from trying to combine my outfits completely, and this is one of those times. This Forever 21 top complemented these pants perfectly, and if I had a boring office job (no offense to anyone who does), I would totally wear rock it there.

I have to admit, this skirt has been hanging in my closet for about two years. I'm not sure if it was because I had nothing to wear it with, or I chose to not wear it at all. I recently purchased this Forever 21 knit sweater, and I thought it was a beautiful match; the colors and the fall vibes blended perfectly. The purse was bought from a local thrift store, and it has been one of my favorites ever since. It has such a cool vintage vibe- I couldn't resist! This is truly a combination that I will surely wear over and over again!

Working in a fashion-related environment can make me feel very pressured- pressured to purchase everything I see in magazines or pressured to look like celebrities. When this daisy crop sweater arrived on my desk, I was overjoyed. For some reason it felt like a crucial staple piece that absolutely had to be in my wardrobe, and now I'm glad it is. Have you started to notice this daisy trend in the fashion world? What do you think of it?

The first time I laid eyes on this Nasty Gal Fuse Shag Jacket from their Fall 2012 collection, I knew it was designed for me. Anyone that has known me since high school knows I was the girl to stand out, wearing bright colors and mixing pieces of clothing together that other girls would not. After deciding it was much too expensive for me, I decided to forget about it, cried a little on the inside, and moved on (SO dramatic right?). A few months later, it went on sale. SALE. A word we all love! I couldn't resist, and when it finally arrived, I proudly hung it at the front of my clothing rack. It's not yet cold enough to wear it (plus, everyone will think I look like Big Bird from Sesame Street), but it's me. I like to get people talkin'.

Days are shorter, nights get longer. I am in love with the fact that I can get home from work and it is already dark. It sounds weird, since most people would love just the opposite. Choosing outfits has become much easier- quite a fast process. Growing up in a cooler environment made me an expert in layering since I was in elementary school. Wherever you spend your winters, it can never be too cold to put in some stylish effort. I knew I wanted to wear this jacket I received from my then-boyfriend (now husband), but with something different, so I chose a simple, short dress and knee-high socks to balance my body temperature (can you believe Arizona is still in the 80's?!). How do you like this outfit twist?

I am still waiting on those days where it is truly cold, where I can go into my clothing racks and pick out long, chunky sweaters and run out the door with a pair of booties. Mornings are getting close here in Arizona, but by noon, it is back to being 90 degrees. Such a tease. This crop top is made of heavier material, and I had actually bought it when I had to go on my trip to NYC almost two years ago. But that trip is a completely different story I might write about later.
Todavia espero los días en los que pueda ir a mi closet, escoger un suéter largo, y salir corriendo con unas botas. Las mañanas aquí en Arizona se están empezando a poner un poco mas fríos, pero para el medio día, esta el sol a todo lo que da. Este crop top esta hecho de material un poco mas grueso, y lo compre de hecho cuando me fui de viaje a Nueva York hace casi dos años. Pero esa historia es para otro día.

The first time I touched down in New York City, I knew I was made to live there. Something about the rush of the people on the streets was very thrilling to me; there was so much action taking place everywhere I looked. The air was freezing, but I didn't care. I wanted to not sleep and just walk around Manhattan all night. Being one of the fashion capitals that it is, I saw guys and girls I knew I could totally relate to. The weather apparently couldn't really stop them from wearing what they wanted- skirts and shorts included (just add tons of layering). I knew I could stay in the city forever, but I can only dream until the next time I smell the NYC air.
La primera vez que llegue a Nueva York, sabia que tenia que un día vivir ahí. Me encanto absolutamente todo, de la gente a mis alrededores, y el movimiento de la ciudad. Estaba helado afuera, pero ni me importo. Yo nomas quería caminar por Manhattan toda la noche. Siendo una de las ciudades mas populares por su moda, mire a muchachas con las que me podía relacionar. A ellas no les importa el clima- eso no les impedía ponerse shorts y faldas (claro, con chaquetas y suéteres!). Sabia que podía quedarme en la ciudad para siempre, pero por ahorita nomas sueño con la próxima vez que pueda mirar a NYC una vez mas.

This weekend was a bit too lazy for typical me; we stayed in on Friday night, last night I attended Phoenix Fashion Week with my boss & co-workers, and today my only outing was to Sonic to get a chili-cheese hot dog. I deemed this sweater only appropriate for this day, obviously.
Hope you have an amazing rest of your week! xo

As September comes to a close, I can't help but wonder when it is truly going to begin getting cooler in Arizona. It seems like it is only cold for a month, then spring starts up again. This post is the final look that I have (so far) of combining these overalls with different tops in order to show versatility. I am excited that another month will finally be starting (seriously, where does time go?), especially because it's my birthday month (yay!). Though I am not thrilled of turning a year older, I am glad that I inherited some good genes from my mother because everyone says I don't look a day over 17!
Ya que se esta acabando el mes de Septiembre, no paro de pensar de el dia que en verdad se empiece a poner frio en Arizona. Parece que en cuanto empieza el invierno aquí, ya un mes después ya se esta poniendo caliente de nuevo- no dura nada el frío aqui! Este look es el ultimo (hasta ahorita) que pondré con estos overoles para poder enseñar que versátil es. Estoy feliz porque ya va a empezar un mes nuevo (no puedo creer que casi es el fin del año!), especialmente porque es mi cumpleaños! A pesar de cumplir un año mas, estoy contenta porque todo mundo dice que todavía parezco nena de 17 años!

I have always had this overly obsessive thought that I absolutely needed these lucite heels in my life or I would die, so I couldn't take it anymore and finally gave in. They are comfortable, but like any other heel, they will eventually begin to wear you out. I paired it with the most comfortable (and cozy!) sweater ever, and topped it off with the same Topshop overalls from the last post to prove that they really are a staple piece and you can spice up your wardrobe with items you may already have as the seasons change.
Siempre me habían encantado estas zapatillas desde el momento que las mire, y decidí que necesitaba tenerlas en mi vida o me moriria. Finalmente, las compre. Me encantan! Soy muy versátil y cómodos, pero como cualquier otra zapatilla, después de tenerlas puestas un tiempo, te cansan. Los combine con mi suéter favorito de H&M, y los mismos overoles de Topshop del ultimo post para enseñarles que en verdad es una pieza con la que puedes combinar muchas cosas sin importar que temporada sea.

Today is the first day of fall, but when you find yourself living in one of the hottest places in the United States of America, it still feels like the beginning of summer. Ever since I can remember, I've loved overalls, or basically anything that's one-piece suits. They can be completely versatile pieces; you can dress them up or dress them down. Pair them with crop tops, or pair them with button-up blouses, this is one staple item that is here to stay in my closet.
Ahora es oficialmente el primer dia de otoño, pero cuando se encuentran viviendo en uno de los lugares mas calientes de los Estados Unidos, se siente como si apenas fuera el principio de verano. Cuando miro hacia atrás, siempre recuerdo que me encantaban lo overoles, o todo lo que fuera de una pieza. Los overoles son muy versátil, y los pueden combinar con crop tops o suéteres, pero como sea, esta es una pieza que nunca faltara e mi closet.

Ever since I first laid eyes on these Prada Baroque sunnies, I absolutely knew they had to be mine. The fact that I happened to find this Topshop Jumpsuit and platforms were a plus. I'm not going to lie; I love shoes. I must own over 50 pairs, most of which have some sort of heel or wedge attached to it to help me in the height department. In other news, I can finally feel it transitioning into the next season- I mean we are already less than 100 days from Christmas! And then it's 2014. Goodness gracious.
Desde la primera vez que mire estos lentes de Prada, supe que tenian que ser mios. Cuando también encontre este jumpsuit y plataformas de Topshop, no pude resistir. No les mentire; soy adicta a los zapatos- tengo mas de 50 pares! Casi todos tienen tacon porque soy muy petite y necesito toda la ayuda posible con mi estatura!

There are times when I am in a rush to get out the door with no particular outfit to wear in mind; those are the times when I put together the most amazing ensembles.

They say that you dress according to how you feel, and you'd expect me to tell you that I've been feeling down or something with this full black on black ensemble, but I believe that you feel your most confident whenever you wear dark colors. Black is slimming, classic, and can make you feel very sexy, and with this look, I really feel that and much more...

I have wanted this Nasty Gal dress ever since I first saw it, and when it went on sale, I immediately knew it would be in my possession soon! There is something so girly about it that I obviously cannot ever pass up when it comes to purchasing clothing. The fact that I am also on the shorter side and the dress sits right above my knees completely reassured me that I made the right choice.

I am in love with the fact that I am the type of person who absolutely cannot walk out the door without looking the slightest bit unpresentable; I have my mother to thank for that. Such was the case a few weeks ago when I decided to pair this rad metallic skirt with a pair of clear sandals (heels?) and chose to walk through a golf course on a whim because it was on the side of the road...
So much of my inspiration comes from magazines, artists, places, even objects. Though it is still scorching hot outside, I am still daydreaming about days where I will wake up and throw on the coolest leather leggings and amazing aviator jacket over them...

I know, I know. There is once again a huuge gap between the last pot and this. But do not fret..yet. I graduate from art school in 47 days (but whos counting?!) and have always been wanting this blog to be a part of my life. I have struggled because I don't think it's "fancy" enough, or because I have a lack of followers, but I just need to keep going. Anyway, I usually take my personal outfit of the day's with my Iphone and upload them on my Instagram, but if you don't follow me on there, then here they are. I am going to leave before I keep rambling on-and also because I am sick :(
