Moto Jacket Casual

This weekend has been one of being totally casual and off-duty in my outfits and mindset. Since the husband and I have a really busy June (pretty much all of our weekends are booked), our 3 day weekend was spent doing stuff around the house (like reorganizing my closet-office) and doing activities around town like visiting a new place in San Diego, Liberty Public Market.

Utility Vest and Stripes

Happy Friday and for most of us, a 3 day weekend honoring those who have passed away while serving our country. For those of us who live in the US, it's a great reminder to thank those who serve and fight for our freedom.

For this 3 day weekend, I intend to be in off-duty style like this outfit that I wore to a BBQ recently. This Explorer vest (last featured here) has been a savior lately, I toss it on on my way out the door and it just makes a simple outfit that much better.

#BossNotes at Westfield UTC

Westfield and Who What Wear have teamed up to empower professional and career-seeking women through their "BossNotes: Leading with Style" series that brings Fashion and Career Summits, Visual Installations and a sweepstakes to Westfield centers accross the country (find the nearest one to you here). In true boss style, I paid a visit to my nearest BossNotes installation at Westfield UTC here in San Diego during my lunch break (hence my business casual outfit in the pic below).

Pop of Red Chanel

If my outfit was Destiny's Child, this Chanel purse would be the Beyonce of the whole thing! I mean, Chanel?! Enough Said right? The arrival of this purse has prompted me to think up of so many outfits revolving around this red beauty, most of which you'll see trickle into the blog, but for now I'll start with a casual-esque outfit.

Spring Outfits Recap

I can't believe May flew by me and I didn't recap the beginning of one of my favorite seasons: Spring! The trends I was into were:

  • lightweight and flowy garments
  • pastels
  • lace
... which are staples in my wardrobe at this point because they are on-trend every Spring.

April was such a fun month! I hope you were able to join me on Snapchat (username: lilbitsofpau) where I showed behind the scenes of the Cabi headquarters (blog post on that to come) and also being an audience member to Super Soul Sessions Part II presented by Oprah (the full session is on their site now if you are into spiritual and thought leader talks)!

The month of May has also been such a kick a-- month, with seeing Beyonce last week, and checking out Brad Paisley this weekend. Make sure to follow along on Snap which is where I usually post!

Let me know which one was your fave!

Taupe Summer Dress

It is rare when I wear taupe, but when I do it has to be just the right item like in this cute dressfrom Banana Republic. I loved the details (like the shirred bodice), the length (not too short) and flowyness of the dress. I also loved that the dress can be dressed up with heels (like I did below) or it can also be dressed down with some wedges and a denim jacket- that was the debate in my head when styling this look which tends to be a testament of how versatile an item is. 


Refined Boho

Happy Friday! I'm still on recovering from last night's Formation World Tour and if you follow me on Snapchat (username: lilbitsofpau) you'll see why I'm so tired! Beyonce was amazing, but obvi you don't need me to tell you that! Her outfits was Beyonce in all of its glory (sparkly, high neck and no pants)! Anywhoooo, here is a look that is centered around this really cool top from Chicwish

Draped Long Vest

As a style blogger, it is very easy to get stuck in seasonal dressing (i.e. me wearing pastels for most of the month of April). Although I am a big fan of the Spring girlyness, it is also fun to blur the lines between seasons and just wear what your heart desires or what the weather calls for. I bring this up because it was an overcast weekend here in San Diego and as I was styling my look I kept gravitating towards these dark pieces that layered nicely- a combo that is typically my Fall outfit formula.

Thank you Mom!

Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful Mothers out there! 

It may be Mother's Day but I feel extremely blessed to have a mom like I do every day. She raised me with discipline, humor, morals, ethics- you name it my mom instilled everything she could in me and in my siblings. I like to reflect back on my mom's life, a Mexican immigrant, working since she was a young girl, coming to the U.S., being a working mom and still putting food on the table every night. All of that work that my mom put in was to benefit me, and allow me to focus on being a better woman.

Chic Señorita

I may not be a huge fan of Cinco de Mayo because I'm Mexican and every day is like Cinco in my book, but I still wanted to give a lil Señorita outfit idea without being too literal. This Chicwish top allowed me to do just that with it's gorgeous embroidery and flowy shape.

Mother's Day Shopping with Las Americas Premium Outlets + GIVEAWAY!

Mother's Day is just a week away and typically around this time I'm panicking wondering what to get my mom! Thank goodness, that the Las Americas Premium Outlets made it much easier by inviting mom and I to do some mother-daughter shopping where I got to see what was on my mom's wishlist (since my mom can be tough to shop for). (Giveaway alert: see the end of this post for Giveaway details)
