Pastelina

As Spring arrives, so do pastels and oh how I love me some pastels! Mint is the prime pastel color of the season and mint jeans are very popular at the moment. For this Challenge I chose to put two pastels together: pink and mint, it's a very whimsical and girly combination. This is my second time wearing mint jeans (first time here), I can't wait to wear these mint jeans in so many other different ways!

Cuando llega la primavera, también llegan los colores pasteles y ¡Oh, cómo me encantan los colores pastel! Menta es el color de la temporada y los pantalones de menta son muy populares en este momento. Para este reto, elegí dos colores pastel juntos: rosa y menta, es una combinación bastante romantica y femenina. Esta es mi segunda usando estos pantalones menta (la primera vez aquí), estoy emocionado para usar estos pantalones de menta en tantas maneras diferentes!

Prep in my Step

On Saturday I went on a mini shopping spree at the nearby Outlet Center and I went into two stores that I usually don't go into: Old Navy and J.Crew. I was enticed to go into Old Navy with the big banner that said 40% the entire store, as soon as I walked in I was in a color daze, they had a lot of cute colorful stuff! J.Crew also had a decent sale, but I kept it to a minimum there as I still find it a tad bit pricey there.

On Monday, I met up with my cousin for lunch at Cheesecake Factory so I thought it would be a good opportunity to rock my new purchases :)

Before Spring Unleashes

I have been keeping my eye on runway shows from New York Fashion Week (Fall 2012) and captivated with so many great looks with dark colors, lots of deep reds and edge. It's a stark contrast to my current obsession with the spring brights & pastels that are everywhere from the store windows to the newest Instyle magazine to the most recent J.Crew Catalog- I'm dying to unleash into the world of Spring colors! But before I do here is one more Fall/Winter outfit I wore to go shopping this weekend. Don't forget to check me out on Instagram or Twitter (@lilbitsofPau) as I post all of the goodies I purchased! There were some GREAT sales!

He estado manteniendo mis ojos en las pasarelas de Nueva York de la Moda Otoño 2012 y captivada por una gran apariencia de tantos colores oscuros, un montón de rojos y de vanguardia. Es un marcado contraste a mi obsesión con los colores de primavera (pasteles y colores chillantes) que están en todas partes desde las tiendas a la revista Instyle hasta el catálogo de J. Crew mas recienteMe muero de ganas de entrar al  mundo de los colores de primaveraPero antes de eso, aquí esta un look más de Otoño/Invierno que me puse para ir de compras este fin de semanaNo te olvides de buscarme en Instagram o Twitter (@lilbitsofPau) si gustas mas detalles y las cosas que estoy comprando!

Stripes + Red Jeans

First of all, I'm SHOCKED that Whitney Houston passed away last night! I was glued to the television last night as they showed old clips and played her songs... brought back so many memories and I teared up! Whitney at her prime was AMAZING! R.I.P. Whitney Houston.

On a lighter note, today I watched "The Vow". It was a cute movie, obviously it doesn't beat "The Notebook" but it was a nice romantic movie based on a true story. After that, my boyfriend took me to the gym across the street of the theater (his gym) and I signed up for the gym... again (this is my fourth time)!! I keep signing up, being really diligent about my work outs and then it slowly fades... it's very cyclical with me. I'm forcing myself to get ready for bikini season :-/ and also just be healthier, have more energy and tone up. Anyways, sorry for ranting... Have a great week y'all!

Sailor Chic

What to wear to a Popeye Party? Sailor stripes of course! This past weekend was my godson-nephew's 5th birthday party at Kid Ventures. Kid Ventures is this super cute place modeled after a little city. It has a saloon, firehouse, cinema, castle, ship... and more. A kid's dream right?! My godson chose Popeye as his theme, so I felt obligated to wear some sailorish attire: Sailor stripes and anchor earrings! Here are some pictures of the outfit followed by some cute pictures from the party :)

¿Qué ponerme para una fiesta de Popeye? Rayas marineras, por supuesto! Este fin de semana pasado fue la fiesta de mi ahijado-sobrino para su cumple de 5 años en Kid VenturesKid Ventures es un lugar super lindo que se ve como una pequeña ciudad. Tiene un salón, estación de bomberos, el cine, un castillo, un barco ... y más. El sueño de un niño no? Mi ahijado eligió Popeye como su tema, así que me sentí obligada a ponerme rayas marineras. Aquí hay algunas fotos de el look y fotos de la fiesta.

Asymmetric Dress- Olé!

This past weekend my cousin celebrated her birthday at Café Sevilla here in downtown San Diego. Café Sevilla is known for their Spanish atmosphere, cuisine and of course sangría! I knew I needed to finally rock a high-low hem dress... Why? Because it reminds me of a Spanish Señorita dress! They had different color options at the store (teal, red, and mustard) but I opted for basic black because it’s more versatile (with a blouse, sweater or vest over it). I added a red lip, my first dual colored mani and voila!

Este fin de semana pasado mi prima celebró su cumpleaños en Café Sevilla aquí en el centro de San Diego. Café Sevilla es conocido por su ambiente y comida Española y su sangría!! Sabía que necesitaba tratar un vestido asimétrico. ¿Por qué? Porque me recuerda a un vestido de señorita! Tenían diferentes colores en la tienda (verde azulado, rojo y mostaza), pero opté por el negro ya que es más versátil (con una blusa, un suéter o un chaleco por encima). Agregue un lipstick rojo y mis unas de dos colores ¡voilá!

About the Outfit:
Dress/ Vestido: Love Culture (similar)
Blazer/ Saco, Cuff/ Pulsera: F21
Handbag/ Bolsa: Tory Burch
Necklace: Charlotte Russe
Shoes/ Zapatos: Target
Lip Color: MAC Ruby Woo

I had been eye’ing this necklace at Charlotte Russe for months! Anxiously waiting for it to go on sale, which it hasn't so I gave in! Now it's my favorite!
 Le he hechado ojo a este collar por meses! Estaba esperando ansiosamente para que le reducieran el precio, pero no lo han hecho e impacientemente lo compre. Así que aquí está mi nuevo collar favorito!

As I see how amazingly creative beauty bloggers get with their mani’s I decided to put some creative effort into mine. I used a dark red for the base, waited for it to dry, then put tape on my fingers to get a black tip. I was actually impressed by my own mani!
Como veo que increíblemente creativas otras bloggers de belleza son con sus uñas, decidí poner un poco de esfuerzo creativo en la mías. Utilize un color rojo oscuro para la base, espere a que se secara, le puse “tape” a mis dedos para pintar unas puntas negras.

Rediscovering San Diego

When I first started my blog one of my main objectives was to re-discover this city that I call my hometown, San Diego. This past weekend, the weather was perfection: clear and sunny skies. It's hard to believe we are in winter!! My boyfriend and I decided to take a little trip to the Cabrillo National Monument which aside from being rich in history has the best view of San Diego. I went picture crazy with the views, military history, the ocean, the light house... it's such a beautiful place that reminds me of why I love my city so much!! I hope you enjoy the pics :)



Here is part of Coronado and you can see downtown San Diego at a distance...


You can see the Coronado Bridge and that little red speck is the Hotel del Coronado 
Statue of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo who was the first European to set foot on the West Coast of the United States in 1542.
