Colorful Leopard

Happy Friday!! You might have seen this leopard top on my blog before, but more casual (with jeans and flats). I like the colors in this leopard print because they are bright and summery! I "fierced it up" to go have dinner with the bf by incorporating this spike necklace (perfect for this week's fashion challenge) and these strappy sandal heels. It got a tad bit windy so I grabbed my jean jacket on the way out! Hope you like it and have a great weekend!!

Feliz viernes! A lo mejor ya han visto esta blusa de leopardo en mi blog, pero más casual (con jeans y zapatos bajos). Me gustan los colores en este estampado de leopardo porque  son veraniegos! Me puse esto para ir a cenar con el novio con este collar de picos (perfecto para el reto de esta semana) y estas sandalias con tacon. Comenso a hacer un poco de frio, así que le agregue esta chaqueta de levis a la salida! Ojala les guste y que disfruten de su fin de semana!

Snake Skin Neutral

Hey y'all! On Saturday we celebrated my friend Maria's birthday at the Grand Opening of a new lounge in downtown called "Area 51 Ultra Lounge". They call themselves a "futuristic hookah lounge" which I believe means a hookah lounge in a hip lounge ambiance :) The entrance is super discrete (it is a hardware store entrance) so we almost walked right past it! The best part, is that we had a good group of friends and we had a grand time! The lounge stays open 'til 4 am (but I had to leave earlier because I had to wake up early for my dad's breakfast, plus my body doesn't recover like it used to). I definitely loved the ambiance, but I think because they were new they were still organizing themselves. I decided to wear this neutral outfit with a pop of dark red lip. I love love love this skirt from Express, because it's 1) snake print 2) bandage skirt 3) Metallic 4) on sale!!!

First of all, Happy Father's Day to all the father's out there! Today, in celebration of my dad we took him for an all-Mexican breakfast :) I wanted to keep my outfit simple and bright to go along with this gorgeous weather outside. I added a matching lip, which brightened up the outfit even further! Hope you all enjoyed this Sunday Father's Day! Have a great week!

5 Ways Fridays: Neon

Happppppyyyy Friiiidaaaayyyy!!! (Can you tell I'm excited?!) Today I wanted to do another "episode" (if I may call it that) of 5 Ways Fridays... I wanted to show 5 Ways to Wear Neons!! Neons have been on their comeback tour for a while now and it doesn't seem like it's going away any time soon, if anything it's been getting bolder. If you're not so sure about neon, you can start off with a pop of neon and see how you feel from there. If you love neon, you can turn up the volume and colorblock with neons. Here are 5 different ways at 5 different levels of wearing neon!

En Español: Feliiiiz viernes!! (¿Se nota que estoy emocionada?!) Hoy les traigo otro "episodio" (si se puede llamar así) de "viernes de 5 maneras" (meh, no rima en español) ... Quería mostrarles 5 maneras de usar neones! Neones han estado de moda por un buen tiempo y no parece que se vayan a desaparecer pronto, sin embargo se estan haciendo mas fuertes. Si no estás tan segura de ponerte neón, puedes comenzar con una prenda o zapatos neón y ver si te sientes agusto. Si te gusta el neón, le puedes subir el volumen y hasta hacer "colorblock" con ellos. Aquí están 5 maneras diferentes de usar neón a diferentes niveles!

Pop of Minkoff

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday!! Today I had another meeting with Rachel from Da Paura, but this one was more official as we were meeting to discuss logistics of our event/meet up for San Diego Style Bloggers. Before we ran into the meeting, we roamed the streets of Little Italy and took a few pics. Yesterday, my Rebecca Minkoff MAC arrived! When I was ordering it all of the colors were selling out (in this size) so I had to make a decision fast and I'm so glad I chose this bold color as opposed to the usual black that I end up getting. Hope you like it and thanks for reading!!

En Español: Feliz martes / miércolesHoy me junte otra vez con Rachel de Da Paurapero esta junta era más oficial, ya que estábamos planeando nuestro evento para San Diego Style BloggersAntes de entrar a la junta, recorrimos las calles de Little Italy y tomamos algunas fotosAyer, mi bolsa de Rebecca Minkoff MAC llego! Cuando lo estaba ordenando todos los colores se estaban vendiendo (en este tamaño) así que tuve que tomar una decisión rápida y estoy muy contenta de haber elegido este color en comparación con los bolsos negros que siempro salgo comprando. Espero que les guste y gracias por leer!

Tropical Punch

Happy Sunday! Yesterday, I attended my friends' birthday luau and obviously when you think luau you think to wear something hawaiian. Well, I remember that back in the day attending a luau meant going to a thrift store to see if you could find a hawaiian shirt, but this time I was so excited because tropical prints are everywhere so I knew I would find something tropical looking easily. Among many items, I found this cute tropical skirt and because the skirt was so colorful, I drew from the colors of the skirt for the rest of the outfit. I matched my lip color to my nailpolish (I'm addicted to doing that at the moment). I also included some other cute tropical finds at the end of the post if you want to indulge in a tropical punch ;) Hope you have a great week!

Crochet Sorbet

Happy Saturday!! First off, I want to apologize for my lack of outfit posts this week. Let me get personal for a paragraph ;) I had new challenging tasks at work that were assigned to me, the biggest of them all included my phobia public speaking. Coincidentally, I saw on the Today Show this week that Public Speaking is the #1 listed phobia! I'm on my 4th presentation of the year and I still get very anxious, but with each presentation I do I'm feeling more confident. If you have a speech or presentation coming up, my best tip is PRACTICE, it really does help with confidence. The last presentation I made was for four of my bosses and I was nervous until I walked into the conference room and got in the zone. It went really well and I felt so proud of myself for conquering that fear that I feel like I need to reward myself. Another tip: Reward yourself after conquering a fear!

Enough about that, here is what I wore to a celebratory happy hour for my cousin and I. My teacher cousin is done with the school year and I definitely needed a cocktail after that presentation :) A little colorful number with a crochet top for this week's Fashion Challenge
