#ItsBanana x2

Happy Tuesday, or should I say, TWOsday? Today I’m bringing you two outfits in one blog post courtesy of some cute pieces I picked up from Banana Republic’s new Spring arrivals. Interesting to note, one is a transitional piece and the other a very trendy piece.



Zipped Up

There's something about midi body con dresses that play with the idea of being sexy but not overdoing it. This dress from the Nicki Minaj collection allows for just that with a zipper that allows me to zip it up as much as I'd like (so my thirty-something year old self zipped it to my heart's content). I appreciate that her collection has pieces that are body-hugging but not too over the top and that they are very affordable (this dress runs for $20!)

Blue Belle

Today I'm throwing it back to a month ago, when I was a long-haired brunette, when I shot looks with Miss Match Boutique here in San Diego. This "Blue Belle" dress is still in stock and ready to accompany you on a night out, cocktail party or even an event during the day time. I was drawn to it primarily because of the color and then I realized it had some cool belle sleeves. On another note, I was really digging my lip color that day, so I bought more of it! It's such a tame, yet noticeable color.

ALLEGIANT Movie themed Giveaways!

It was just one year ago I hosted giveaways for the INSURGENT movie launch and now we are weeks away from the next exciting movie from the Divergent Series to premiere! ALLEGIANT is the newest installment from the series which is set to hit theaters March 18, 2016. In honor of this premiere, I am hosting two giveaways: one for local San Diego ALLEGIANT fans and another open to U.S. residents!


Textured Coat

What a difference 5 months make! I last wore this coat here and I remember breaking a sweat in it because the temperatures in San Diego weren't letting up. Then this week el Nino came back marking its return with thunder and winds! Needless to say, I brought this coat out and gave it another go, styled it differently and I liked it even better.

I have figured out part of an outfit formula where you toss on a cape to a basic outfit and voila a chic look. I got my first cape through SheIn (here) and since then I've been swearing by it, from a casual day in jeans to layering it on an elegant dress, a cape can adjust to any occasion.

And now I'm looking to add more capes to my wardrobe, so I decided to share my favorites below all below $100! I'm leaning more towards the structured ones because they can give an outfit a sleek touch, I'm also eye'ing the blush one which is a great way transition into Spring.


Comfy and Airy

TGIF my friends! As if I wasn't jumping the gun with Spring inspired looks, now I'm pressing fast forward to a Summer look (in my defense this San Diego weather calls for it). I will say that this type of attire will come to a screeching halt this week because we are expecting El Nino rain this weekend and is all the more reason to test out some Summer attire like this!

February Outfit + Life Recap

Good bye February, Hello March! 

On a style note, I love how outfit recaps can give me a sense of how my style is transitioning. I don't want to badger y'all with another "it's so hot here in San Diego" but that was a big factor on why I started ditching the jackets and jumping in to Spring fashion. I started adopting the cute floral dresses from Chicwish and the casual ones from Miss Match Boutique. I was also excited to include Cabi Spring pieces since their new collection themed "la Dolce Vita" launched before my eyes at the #CabiScoop event. They have the most fun yet practical pieces.
