SPRING TRENDS: FLOWERS + HEAD WRAPS

 We didn't get another dog! This is Lola's cousin Diesel. He is the cutest little bulldog ever. Naughty but cute indeed. And he was the perfect accessory on this gorgeous spring day. I am obsessing over head wraps, they are so retro chic and just scream spring style. I got this one for just under$4 at Forever 21. I paired it with my cute floral top from Romwe and my favorite jeans, my ripped boyfriend jeans that you will be seeing a whole lot of this season. I love the bright and fun colors for spring and summer. 

I am really excited to share that I am working with two great brands on a couple of amazing collaborations, and will be sharing details in the next few weeks. Yesterday I filmed my first video campaign and I couldn't be happier, follow me on Instagram for some sneak-peeks. All this thanks to your support and love, which never goes unnoticed, Lola Blue has grown so much in the past 2 years and I couldn't be happier. So many opportunities coming and I can't wait to share with you. Have a lovely Wednesday dolls!

LITTLE HANDSOME BOY

 I couldn't help but share photos of my handsome boy today. This is a great idea for a cool Easter outfits for boys or like we did, for a wedding. I knew I didn't want him to wear a suit because most children's suits are too big and they don't sell the European fit everywhere or they are too expensive. I found this set of pants and vest at Target, the pants were $12 and the vest was $10. It was the perfect outfit for B, he was comfortable enough to run around and still look sharp and elegant but still look like a kid. I paired this adorable pinstripe look with blue high top Converse sneakers (because I don't like most dress shoes) and added a simple and classic white button down from H&M and matching blue/gray tie. I am loving that Ben now enjoys taking photos, he insists on posing and I couldn't be a prouder mama... This outfit was just $34 without the sneakers. Definitely proves that you don't have to break the bank to dress up, even as a child.

I hope you loved this pint size style post. I hope to bring you more of B and his style in the coming months.

SPRING TRENDS: THE MIDI SKIRT

 Happy Monday!
We had an amazing, perfect weekend. And we took our boy to the park for play time and a picnic. I wore this super cute skirt I bought months ago on hm.com, I wore it for our Christmas photos and haven't worn it since, so I figured this was the perfect first warm day to wear it on. I changed my shoes to flats for our picnic and wore this look all day. It was super comfortable and chic. Midi skirts are all the rage right now and I love them. I have my eye on a few more and can't wait to get them. Pair it with a cotton top, tucked in, like I did here or with the super trendy crop top and voila! you are ready to go...chic, girly and simply perfect.

Feliz lunes!
Tuvimos un hermoso fin de semana. El primer fin de semana calido y lleno de sol. Y por supuesto que aprovechamos y llevamos a Ben a el parque a jugar y tambien tuvimos un lindo y relajado picnic. Me puse este atuendo comodo y chic. Pero para el picnic y parque me cambie a zapatos planos por supuesto. Esta falda la compre hace meses, incluso me la puse para nuestras fotos familiares de Navidad. Y el sabado fue el dia perfecto para sacarla una vez mas. Las faldas de talla media y abiertas como esta estan super de moda, me encantan con camisetas asi de algodon o con la populares crop top

BEAUTY OF SPRING | LA BELLEZA DE LA PRIMAVERA

 This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Neutrogena and Latina Bloggers Connect. All opinions are my own.
Spring is officially here and we have been taking full advantage of the gorgeous East Coast weather. I've said it before and I will say it again, spring is my all-time favorite season. The gorgeous crisp smell of the mornings, the blooming trees and flowers and the amazing fashion trends this spring... are simply too exquisite for words. It's the rebirth of Mother Nature, new seasonal fruits and of course revamping my closet! But my fave thing about spring is being outside with my little one, one of "our" things to do are picnics and eating fruits outside while we play. But when it comes to beauty and fashion this season is all about blush and pastel color clothes and makeup looks. It's all about a fresh face and neutral tones. And today I want to show you guys a super simple daily spring look with Neutrogena. As you guys all know as a mommy on the go I always go for the quick and fab routines... and that doesn't mean I have to sacrifice my style, I'm just efficient with my time. For this look I wore Nourishing Long Wear Liquid Makeup as a base and simply added the amazing Healthy Volume Mascara, because I can't live without mascara! It definitely brightens up my eyes. I then topped it off with MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Sweet Watermelon for my lips. The color of this lippie is spring perfection. I love this look because it's young, fresh and you can achieve it in just 5 minutes... a mommy's dream!

Como ya lo saben, si es que han leido mis posts antes... la primavera es mi temporada favorita. El rico y fresco viento de primavera es como ninguno... la arboles florecen, las frutas se ponen riquisimas y lo mas ,lindo para mi, la primavera significa muchos dias afuera divirtiendome con mi hijo bello. Una de nuestras acitividades preferidas en esta temporada es hacer picnics y comer frutas en un lindo atardecer. Y hoy les traigo un look de primavera facil y eficiente para las mamis como yo. Desde el maquillaje hasta los atuendos son mas lindos esta temporada... los colores pasteles, neutrales y looks frescos y claros son mis favoritos. Para este look de dia a dia use productos de una de mis carcas de maquillaje favoritas Neutrogena. Empeza con la base Nourishing Long Wear Liquid Makeup, acentue mis ojos con la mascara  Healthy Volume Mascara simplemente porque no se vivir sin mascara o rimel como le decimos en Ecuador. Y por ultimo complete mi look con este lapiz labial llamado MoistureSmooth Color Stick en el color Sweet Watermelon. Lo mas chevere es que este look es posible en 5 minutos! Espero les guste

WEDDING GUEST DRESS

 
 Last Sunday I attended my cousin's wedding. It was a lovely affair on the perfect spring Sunday. I've had this dress in my closet for the longest time, waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it to. When the popular dress boutique Faviana sent me the dress it was too big and I had been debating on selling it. After posting it on my IG and seeing how much my readers loved it on me I decided to take their advice and got it altered. I was very happy I did. It is such a stunning dress for any elegant affair. The detail on the dress are exquisite. It is completely sequined and has a great cut. I love a one shoulder dress and this fit me like a glove after the alterations. It was classy and a little sexy. I decided to do a red lip for a little but of sass. And of course added tons of bracelets for a fun and sparkly look. Wearing my crystal tear drop earrings always makes me feel like a million bucks. Thank you guys for encouraging me to keep this gorgeous dress. 
-----------------
Este domingo pasado fue la boda de mi primo. Fue un bello domingo de primavera y la boda estuvo muy bonita. Este vestido me lo enviaron de la tienda de vestidos de gala llamada Faviana. Pero cuando me llego me quedo demasiado grande... pense en venderlo pero despues de leer sus opiniones en Instagram decidi quedarme con el y como me dijeron hacerlo cojer con un sastre. Y gracias a Dios las escuche, despues de los arregos me quedo muy bien. El vestido es un sueno. Es puras lentejuelas color plata, con detalles preciosos, es un vestido perfecto para cualquier tipo de gala. Es elegante y un poco sexy a la ves. Como siempre me puse muchas pulseras para que resaltaran con las lentejuelas y acentue mi look con labios rojos.

SPRING TRENDS I AM COVETTING

I am so excited that winter is finally making its way out of the East Coast. And for that reason I have collected a few of my favorite spring trends. From midi skirts with mesh details to lace and more lace... and of course everything pastels. One huge trend this spring/summer is the crop top! I've also noticed jean overalls making their way back into the street style scene. Hmm... not sure if I will rock those yet. I think with the right shoes and accessories it is definitely possible. What is your favorite piece from my style board above? 
----------------
Por fin estamos teniendo dias bellos casi toda la semana. Y por eso decidi copilar unas piezas de primavera que estan super a la moda esta temporada. Desde faldas a la rodilla, encajes y muchos detalles, hasta por supuesto los colores pasteles. Y no podia faltar las crop top o blusas de ombligo, que estan como pan caliente! Y que les parece que los overoles de jean tambien regresan esta temporada!? Cual es tu pieza favorita?
