I AM BACK!!!
Doctors orders that I write, take pictures and post more and more.
I have been battling anxiety and with that came the lack of motivation and the doubts.  Why should I write? who reads it anyways? I am to old for this?  blah blah blah Those thoughts might still be there, but I will push thru I promise!! These were taken a couple of months ago on a Sunday when I went to the town's vintage sale. I never thought I would be cowgirl type of boot gal, but surprisingly I love these pair!  I have been wearing them non-stop.
Happy Tuesday!

Helping Earth

Image
I have found a love for second hand clothes.  I have no idea why I never went thrifting before?
I started a couple of months ago and so far I have found some great pieces.  Like these pair of Gap jeans!  I got them for $5 and they had the original tags still on them.  I also got this blouse practically for free. 
If you have patience to look thru racks and time, I recommend you trying it.  I feel recycling clothes is my little contribution to this beautiful earth. 
Happy Friday!

On Repeat

Image
It is official I have a thing for touching my hair and closing my eyes when I take pictures LOL
I loved this outfit so much,  that I wore it three more times after that and that was only last month.  This skirt I found by accident in the store.  It was the last one and in my size!  you know I could not pass it.  I am probably going to wear it with boots and a black sweater and maybe next time with a blazer.  I just love it.  
Also, very sad I got these sandals in late Summer.  I got them at the Zara sale for like $10.  They are the prettiest in person.
I have a couple of more posts planned for October and I am trying to figure out the lighting in my apartment for inside pictures in the near future, since my not so good friend Winter is coming!

Friday

Image
There is always something about Fridays that makes me feel happy!  
Specially around Fall time.  All the activities the PSL's and the fresh air that is accompany by all this change.  Trees transitioning colors and all of the Fall sweaters and styles I love.
This sweater I got a couple of years ago and I don't know why I don't wear it enough.  It's perfect for this time of year's layering, where is 50 degrees in the morning and 70's in the afternoon.
Looking forward to a weekend full of activities starting tomorrow with Zumba with Fabletics and the American Heart Association walk on Sunday!
Happy weekend friends!

October

Image
"Life does not have to be perfect to be beautiful"
This is one of my favorite quotes, specially after 2017.  On October 25 of that year my life changed.  I changed. I suffered a TIA aka mini stroke due to a congenital heart defect I had, that I had no idea even existed.  I remember that day like if was yesterday, not by choice I just can't move on.  I have to work on letting go of the memory because even thought it was a shocking moment, God gave me another opportunity to still breath.   If you are wondering what caused this, I had what is called a PFO a little hole in my heart that let a blood clot travel to my head, causing me to go blind in my left eye for a few minutes. I have never written about this, because as I mention before I need to learn to let go.  Fast forward to now and I am a completely different person.  I am physically back to normal, but mentally well, that is a working progress. As October sneaked in on me it made me realized that instead of crying and reme…

Everything Comes Back

Image
I was so happy when I saw headbands come back.  For someone who suffers from migraines and can't really have anything extra tight around the head, I sure love them LOL
I got this one at Zara but I should off search more, mine was $19 and after I purchased it I saw them on Amazon for $4!! I was so pissed.  Lesson learned right?
I have this skirt for over 10 years and this is the first time I wear it.  I cleaned my closet a couple of weeks ago and found so many items I love and forgot about.  That is what happens when your space is limited and have to hang three things on one hanger.
I am glad I re-discovered it!!
In other news... Fall is around the corner and I am not doing well with the idea of the cold weather :/

MIni Mouse

I have not been to Disney World in a while, but I am pretty sure that this looks like Mini Mouse's outfit LOL
I can't believe  the first week of September is almost gone and that my birthday is next week.   This year flew by so fast I feel I didn't even get a chance to breath and take it all in.  
About the outfit I wore this look to the office two weeks ago.  Two of my favorite polka dots and bows :)

New Beginnings

Image
My birthday month is here!!!
A little sad that the "unofficial" end of Summer is here, but I am so happy the birthday celebrations have begun.
I always think of September as a new beginning.  With Fall right around the corner and seeing all the nature changes, it's a good reminder that new beginnings are great. 
Let's have a great one!

501

Image
I don't know what it is with me and jeans, but wearing them is when I feel more comfortable.
I own too many pairs but I can't never have enough! And in my defense I always purchase them on sale.  These ones I got last year when Levi's was having a major sale and I scored them for $29.  The 501's are my favorite, they are high wasted, cropped and make my behind look a bit more full. If you know me, you know I need help in that department LOL
Happy Weekend!

Easy Dressing

Image
Every year when Fall is around the corner all I can think about is the simplicity of dressing during Summer.  I always miss it!  I am not a fan of wearing a coat.  Layering, yes, but not wearing a heavy Winter jacket. 
I wore this outfit to the office and I was so comfortable.  It's simple yet appropriate and the shoes are the star of the show.

Back To The 80's

Image
I bought this shirt for Ryan when I went to Colombia back in October.  Unfortunately it didn't fit him right, but it did fit me LOL!  I cut it to make it a cropped top and rolled the sleeves up to give the outfit  an 80's vibe. It's funny because I actually don't like the fashion in the 80's, but I recently bought a pair of vintage acid wash jeans from goodwill and I've been taken it back to that era with all my outfits. I wore my DIY cropped top with this denim skirt I bought last year and paired it with Zara's leopard print mules.  I totally felt like a rocker bad chick :)

It's Still August

Image
As far as I am concerned it is still August and Summer for that matter...
Yesterday I decided to go to the mall and do my walking.  I do that sometimes and it actually relaxes me.  I walk for 45 minutes and after I always get soup at Panera.  But yesterday I was getting a bit anxious because all the stores have Fall and Winter clothes displaying already!!! What is happening people?  I've lived in this country for a long time, but it seems that every year we are still wearing bathing suits while sipping on a pumpkin whatever latte they sale at Starbucks LOL
These were lost files taken back in June.  Go get this dress for a fraction of the price, because the sales are really good now!

That Time I Went to Philly

Image
Closing July with a post that should off been up months ago!!!
These three outfits were the ones I wore on my Memorial Day Philadelphia trip.  We took the puppy and I wanted to be as comfortable as possible.  I only packed one pair of neutral colored sandals and for the most part only wore lipstick.  Can't get any simpler than that!! I find that when on vacation I don't even think of makeup, so not me LOL
On another note... Tomorrow is August! Insane

Got News?

Image
I personally don't watch the news LOL I find them depressing and I just don't have time for that.
But... when I saw this dress I had to get it.  It reminded me so much of Carrie Bradshaw's  Dior dress that I needed  to have it.  Obviously mine was only $12 and a bit different style on top (not shown here).
I styled it a little 90's child layering a t-shirt and sneakers for a comfy Sunday look.

Beautiful Finds

Image
When I was little I used to always get my sisters and cousins hand me downs.  So it was only  a matter of time for me to start thrifting. I love Free people clothing, but lets be honest it can get a lot expensive. When I found this dress for $15 dollars at the consignment store, I had to buy it.
It can  styled as a dress or top.  This time around I wore it with biker shorts and lace up flats for an afternoon in the best city in the world, New York!

My Go To

Image
When Summer hits and you only feel comfortable in tank tops and a skirt....
I have been living in outfits like this for the past month.  I am not complaining about the heat, in fact I love it.  It is so easy to just pick an outfit and get out of the house.  I have been trying different versions of this to work and the weekends.
I recently bought these sandals at the Zara sale and have been in heavy closet rotation.
Hope you have a nice week!

Here is a funny story my friends...
 Ryan and I met thru an online app.   In reality we almost don't even meet . If you have used one of this apps before, then you know it can get a little crazy , boring and tiring.  I was about to give up and so was he.  On his profile he stated that he was into muscle cars, really? I thought to myself. I had no idea what he meant by that, until he showed me this beauty. The whole time we sat and talked about this car on our first date I was clueless LOL  He worked on this car for a long time, won many prices in lots of car shows.  Was I impressed?  hell yes!  very much. To make a long story short his dedication and passion for this car amazed me.
It took three years for me to finally take pictures of this beauty and I am so glad I did!
I wanted to look a bit retro for this so I went with a dress and sneakers, no…
