Coloful Maxi Dresses for Spring and Summer

While I typically indulge in the Spring pastels at this time of year, I can't seem to stop myself from getting vibrant pieces (as you previously saw here and here). I don't know if it's a 2019 thing, but this Spring I seem to want to live life colorfully, bright and cheery! Or maybe it could be that I'm craving a beach vacay and this dress just mentally took me there!

Taking a Dress from Casual to Elegant

With wedding season and summer upon us, I wanted to knock two birds with one stone in today's post by showing you how to take a dress from elegant to fun casual! My dress of choice is this beautiful "Drama" dress from cabi that just went on sale today as part of their 2nd New Arrival Release: Blooming Blush (more info on that below).

Mother's Day Shopping - Las Americas Premium Outlets

Here is your friendly reminder that we are T minus 13 days away from Mother's day (and T minus 11 for Mexican Mother's Day) BUT before you let the panic set in, I have something special for all of my San Diego readers: A place where you can find designer brand gifts at discounted prices for all of the special moms in your life, Las Americas Premium Outlets!

I have talked about Las Americas Premium Outlets before here and back then even got the stamp of approval from my own mom, but this time I decided to ride solo so I could get her and all of the special moms in my life gifts.

Last minute Easter Outfit Ideas

I know Easter is just around the corner and although these are considered "last minute" outfit ideas, they are also good for the rest of the Spring season! Below I have rounded up four outfit ideas to look chic this Easter Sunday starting from casual to elegant!

Yellow Powersuit - The It Color of Spring!

This look made an appearance on my Instagram a couple of weeks ago and it was such a hit that I wanted to dedicate a full blog post to it. For one, yellow is the IT color for Spring and two, I love me a good power suit! Yellow and power suit together, definitely a bold move which goes well with my whole "stepping out of the comfort zone" journey I am on. (More on that below)

Pink Vest Outfit - Just Add Pink!

When in doubt, just add pink! You can say this is my new motto as of late to the point that one of my friends said that light pink has become my signature color! I'll take that as a compliment ;) While I'm not going all Legally Blonde status, I do LOVE adding a pop of pink! Today I'm showing how you can add pink in a chic way to an otherwise basic outfit by simply adding a pink vest like I did here or a pink blazer.

Spring is in full swing and I must say the sun has been gracing us with its beautiful presence and I couldn't be more grateful!

How I Got Out of Credit Card Debt

Today's post will definitely stand out among my usual style blog posts but I felt compelled to write it because 1) I have mentioned this topic before and so many of you expressed interest in hearing my story 2) we live in the social media age where a lot of people live above their means to portray an aspiration lifestyle that has reminded me of me in my 20's and 3) I'm hoping that sharing my story will help any of you out there who may find yourself in a similar situation.

My Winter 2019 Go-To Outfit

Just when I think it can't get any colder in San Diego, it does! And yes, I am fully aware that we are spoiled here and that the rest of the country is literally freezing (sorry rest of the country!) Today though I wanted to share my Winter 2019 uniform.

Valentine's Day Sweaters

Hello February and hello Valentine’s Day season! I used to get glam for Valentine's Day (as can be seen here), but now I would rather chill with my boys at home and not have to fight the crowds at restaurants. My low maintenance celebrating, however doesn't mean that I don't love V-day. Valentine's Day is actually one of my fave Holidays because it's another excuse to dress girly- queue the hearts, the pinks and the reds!

How to wear a suede Moto Jacket

I've raved about moto/biker jackets before but today I'm zeroing in on the suede (or faux suede) moto jackets because they have become a constant go-to for me every Fall and Winter for the last few years. I find that they add such a cool-girl vibe to any ensemble, allow me to show you how!

Birthday Thoughts: What I know now in my 30's

Today is officially my birthday and it's funny that over the years I make my birthday less and less of a deal. It not only has to do with being officially in my "late 30's" but also that I'm a mom to a very active little one year old and at this point just having a break or a nap is a gift!

I remember in my 20's coordinating my birthday months in advance. The outfit had to be a statement dress preferably sequins and the location had to be poppin' (or as the kids say LIT). Some birthdays extended over days (starting from Wednesday at Sidebar into the weekend) and into other cities (like Vegas). My-my times have changed! As I reflect on my life I think of how blessed I am, and so thankful to have been able to create all of those beautiful memories (and even create a little human) on my thirty-something years on earth.




What to look for in a Reversible Dress

With the start of 2019, I have hit the ground running on this year's goals: decluttering (as you an see on my Instastories I have accepted the #declutterlikeamother challenge, decluttering 30 mins a day for 30 days), eating healthier, saving money and being less wasteful, to name a few. Instead of doing my usual one-and-done approach to my goals, I'm trying to develop better habits because I want things to stick this time around! Wish me luck! And of course I will share with you what I learn from each journey, but for today you might be wondering what all of this has to do with a reversible dress?

In my closet purging (yep doing that like everyone else in America right now), I realized that I only want high quality and versatile pieces to take up the highly coveted space in my closet - enter this reversible dress (which is currently 65% off btw) that works TWO ways seamlessly. I previously wore it on the leopard side (here) and now I'm showing you the stripe side!

Chic Warm Coat Ideas

It's coat-wearing season y'all and funny story our little family and I headed to the desert for a few days where brrrrrr it was freakin' cold! We thought it was a desert thing until we came back into San Diego to find out that it was just as cold here too! And so for today I wanted to not only give you this chic coat outfit idea but also link up some other cute coats for this "brrrr" season.

My Blogging Goals for 2019

San Diego Fashion Blogger 2019, Holy Matcha San Diego


I usually know what I want to work on and what I want to aim for when it comes to my blog, but this time I struggled to put this list together. I think it's because this industry is changing rapidly that I don't know where it's headed and where my efforts will be best suited. I'm not going to get all existential in this post, trust me I've been thinking A LOT about social media's role in life in general, but as I think about my long-term future as blogger, I simply don't want to waste my time or energy on platforms that might not be around in X amount of years (a la Myspace, Friendster, Vine, Pose, Periscope, etc). So for 2019 my goals are simple, yet profound because they are rooted in why I do this and how I intend to continue to enjoy it despite all of the changes around me.
