BLACK AND WHITE FOR THE ON THE RUN TOUR

Happy Monday!
This is what I wore to the On the Run concert with Beyonce and Jay-Z. We had such a great night, the concert was anazing, those two together are definitely something else. Love them! So I wanted to wear something comfortable and fun, so I went with these high waisted shorts and crop top from one of my favorite online stores OASAP. And my go-to cut out sandals, that I've had for years, they are from Steve Madden. It was the perfect summer concert night and I was comfortable and was able to dance all night. Did any of you go to the concert?

Feliz lunes!
Chicas, esto es lo que me puso para el concierto On the Run de Beyonce y Jay-Z. Fue una noche hermosa de verano. El concierto estuvo excelente, como siempre me encantaron los dos. Me quise vestir comoda pero a la moda por eso decidi ponerme estos shorts de cintura alta y blusa corta de una de mis tiendas de l web favoritas OASAP. Y estas sandalias super viejisimas que las tengo hace mucho tiempo, son de Steve Madden. Algunas de ustedes fueron al concierto? Que les parecio?

SUMMER TREND: THE SHIFT DRESS

Hi lovelies, happy Tuesday! It's been a little while since I've done a style board shopping inspiration post. And today I wanted to bring you one of my many summer must haves: the shift dress. As you saw on this post and this one - I am loving all sorts of shift dresses. I am so obsessed with how easy it is to wear them and loving the prints I have been lucky to find. I put together my top 5 dresses I am coveting this summer. And I am in complete love with every single one... I think they are great for any and all occasion because this summer, because they are light, short and flirty but have just enough to make it chic and appropriate for pretty much any event. If I had to pick one from my top five it would definitely be the "Date Night" leopard print and the "Family Dinner" yellow dress. I think they are so me. 
So let's start with some inspiration shall we? Here is my #1 - the leopard print short sleeve, I love this for a date night, just add some cute black or nude heels, red lipstick and lots of mascara and you are ready to go! 
Love it? Buy it HERE for just $24! 

Next up is this amazing solid pink 1/4 sleeve dress. I would totally wear this to the office to feel feminine and chic. This look can be worn with high heel pumps or sandals for a professional yet stylish office look.
Add a chunky necklace and you're ready to go! And it's just $40 - get it HERE!

This next dress is such a fun Girls Night look. I love print and this dress speaks for itself. And what I love most is that it can easily be worn with flats or heels, add some fab sunnies and you're on your way to a fun day or night. This one is much more pricier, being Mara Hoffman but for me it is definitely an inspiration and I am sure there has to be a "steal" version of this dress at Forever 21.
But if you love it so much, get it HERE, dolls!

Yellow has totally become my color. And this little number is no exception. I love the style, the color, the cut, I think it's simply perfection. You can wear this to a family dinner or birthday party, I would do either print shoes or a classic nude strappy sandal. Add dainty accessories for a super chic look.
You have to love River Island for their amazing prices, this dress is just $40, get yours HERE!

Finally, this is a dress I can really see myself wearing for a baby shower, bridal shower or fun event. Even a casual wedding, it is all in the accessories ladies! And this makes our wardrobe super versatile. Be creative!
This one is a bit pricier - but again ladies, these fabulous prints and styles can be found at great stores like my few faves H&M, Forever 21 and Zara! Inspo, inspo, inspo! This one is available HERE.

I hope you enjoyed this post, I wanted to bring you something a little different with a bit of variety for every occasion and every budget. Let me know what summer trend you want to see next!

DISTRESSED / RIPPED JEAN SHORTS

Hi dolls, I am back! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I took a little over a week break to just relax and enjoy the summer days with my boy. Summers are so short here in the East Coast and as a mom, as you may understand, my priority is my family. It has been a great few days of just family time and I truly have loved it. I didn't do any blogging or took any photos for here, but I found these pictures I had forgot to post - it's the last batch from Mexico (man those pics lasted, haha). Every summer I wear these amazing ripped or distressed jean shorts that I love! They are perfect. I got them at Nabee years ago and never found such a perfect pair of shorts again. This is a super casual look that's cute and comfortable. Hope you like!

Hola chicas, si me siguen en Instagram, ya se dieron cuenta de que me tome unos dias libres para disfrutar el verano con mi hijo ya que los veranos aca en New Jersey son super cortos y sin planearlo decidi simplemente relajarme un poco y disfrutar al maximo estos dias con mi familia. No me he tomado fotos para el blog ni he hecho nada que tenga que ver con el y espero lo entiendan. Ser mama es mi prioridad y la verdad se sintio rico:) Bueno estos son mi shorts de jean favoritos, esos todos rotos y super cool. Los uso todos los anios, son de Nabee y nunca he visto parecidos tan cheveres y comodos. Me los compre hace ufff de anios. Espero les guste este look casual playero. Nos vemos! 
Top/Camiseta: H&M
Jean Shorts: Nabee
Sandals: Forever 21 


The two outter bracelets are from my store Lola Blue and the middle is from Forerer 21.




I decided to add some pics as a little Mexico Diary. The scene was beautiful everywhere you looked and I truly loved this trip, can you believe it's been a month already! Time flies my friends.

Decidi agregar unas fotitos de lo bello que es Mexico, donde sea que ves es un paisaje hermoso. Pueden creer que ya ha pasado un mes desde que visitamos Mexico? El tiempo vuela chicas!

SUMMER TRENDS: THE PINEAPPLE PRINT

I am so excited to share today’s post with you! Not only because it is my first blogger collaboration but because we are sharing a super fun summer trend: the pineapple print trend! I teamed up with my friends Nadia + Naty to bring you our individual take on this chic trend. What I love most about this is that when we showed up to our meeting point we all had very different looks… very us but still styling the same trend and I love that! I love individuality even under the same scheme. Cheers to women empowering other women, I am blessed to have nothing but love + light around me and these cool babes are definitely that.  
I wore this amazing shift dress from ASOS, I loved the color when I saw it online and when it came in I loved it even more. I have a couple of shift dresses and I realize that every time I wear them I end up accenting it with a thin belt, because they are usually longer on me since I am 5’ short. I decided to add this fun and amazing embellished envelope clutch from NineOneTwoSSI for a fun and different look. For their looks, Nadia wore a neutral and chic outfit - she decided  to rock her pineapple on her top! And Naty did her bottoms by wearing these adorable shorts, such a chic look this summer! Jump over to their blogs A Love Affair with Fashion + NACStyles for all the details on their individual looks.

I really hope you loved this post as much as we did working on it and let us know if you would like to see more. Lastly, huge thanks to Naty's amazing mom for putting up with our silliness and being an amazing momtagrapher
Here are some fun pieces I loved:

MOMMY CHIC | SUNDAY FUNDAY WITH MY BOYS

I love family posts and this one is no exception. We visited Field Station in Secaucus a couple of weeks ago. My son has moved on his obsession with trucks to dinosaurs so we had to take him to this amazing and fun dinosaur park and it was a huge hit! He still talks about it and we do plan on going back. We had such a nice time, I love seeing my husband and son together they truly melt my heart. We looked at all the dinosaurs then had a picnic for lunch, Ben loved every minute. I wore a super comfy and chic mommy look. I've said it before and I'll say it again, don't sacrifice your style because you are now a mom, simply work with what you have, you can still be comfortable and fashionable. I wore this cute graphic tee from OASAP which actually has pearls and jewels on it! It is so cute. And paired it with my fave and super old white shorts, my new Forever 21 flats (birthday gift from my mom) and my go-to Olivia + Joy bag, it is perfect for mommies too!

MIX + MATCH BIKINIS

No matter what my age, I have always preferred a two piece bikini over a whole one. Even with my extra lbs in the mid area, I have to try and embrace my body. (So that's not to say I don't own a couple of one-pieces.) I always love to mix and match the pieces and create fun and different styles whenever on vacation or back at home, that was no exception in Mexico. I paired this hot pink printed bandeau top from Victoria's Secret (from my honeymoon) with a emerald green bikini bottom from Forever 21. I love the fun colors and I think they were perfect for Mexico. I often use some tops or blouses as cover ups and I brought this gold and black lace top which I love and have worn often.
--------------
Desde siempre, he preferido los trajes de bano de dos piezas. Y no es porque tenga cuerpo de modelo para nada, todo lo contrario, pero hasta con las libritas de mas tenemos que estar orgullosas de nuestros cuerpos. De todos modos yo siempre tengo unos dos trajes de bano de una pieza. Y me encanta combinar los bikini mezclando los colores, texturas y estilos, porque da un look chevere y divertido. Ademas da muchas opciones y no tienes que siempre comprar mas. Este top es de mi luna de miel y es de Victoria's Secret el bikini es de Forever 21, me parecio un combinacion perfecta, vibrante y divertida para Mexico. Ademas use esta blusa de encaje negro y dorado como cover up.  Es una buena opcion para sus blusas.

Here are some cute bandeau tops I love | Aqui les dejo con algunos bikinis que me encantan!

TROPICAL PRINTS

 In case you haven't noticed anything fresh, tropical and high-waisted, is my latest obsession. And if it's showing off my legs, then double score. We all have a part of our bodies that we prefer or love. For me being petite and not busty, I have to say my legs are my favorite body part. They are not long but I love to show them off any chance I can. Therefore summer is all about dress, skirts and shorts for this little lady! And I think it is great to find a part of your body that works for you and work with that. If you have a nice upper body show it off in a classy way, have great butt or legs then accentuate that. Work with what you have because no one is perfect but we all have something that works for us. I had to have these super cute tropical print shorts from Zara. They were on super sale for $15, I took them with me to Mexico and paired them with this tube top I've had from Express for at least 8 years. It is one of my favorite tops ever that's why I won't let it go. It's actually a crop top but since my shorts are high-waisted you can't tell... so obsessed.
----------
Por si acaso no se hayan dado cuenta, cualquier pieza que sea super liviana, fresca y con cintura alta, es mi mi mas reciente obsession. Y cualquier cosa que sea shorts, faldas, vestidos que acentuen mis piernas entonces hasta mejor. Todas tenemos alguna parte de nuestros cuerpos que es nuestro favorito. Para mi, siendo pequena de estatura y sin muchos senos, mi parte favorita es mis piernas. Por eso cada chance que tengo las enseno. Por eso me encantaron estos shorts de Zara con estampado tropical que esta super de moda. Les cuento que pague tan solo $15 por los shorts durante una venta de verano y me los lleve a Mexico conmigo. Lo combine con esta blusa medio morada o azul que la tengo desde hace mas de 8 anios, es una de mis favoritas y es de Express. Me gusto mucho este look, chic y fresco para el calor. 
Top/Blusa: Express 
Shorts: Zara
Shoes/Zapatos: Zara

Jewelry/Joyeria: Lola Blue, the closet



This elephant necklace is one of my all time faves. It was from the very first collection at Lola Blue, the closet. I've been so busy with the blog that my jewelry shop has taken a back seat but I promise you it will be back revamped and better than ever. I have so much going on with my personal life and professional, I need more hours in the day. But it is one of my priorities to bring it back very soon. Stay tuned for a Summer Blowout Sale - with amazing prices and free shipping!
