Picnic Anyone?

Image
Backyard picnic anyone?
I have been trying to make the best of this quarantine situation and have been loving getting a little bit more creative.  It took me a while to get to this point and in a way I am happy quarantine has forced me to come out of my comfort zone, when it comes to taking photos for the blog.   This is Ryan's backyard where I have been spending most of my time, so I decided to pay it tribute and photograph some of it.  He takes pride on his grass, look how green it is!!  I also decided to wear this flowy, comfortable dress I got from Shein.  They have so many cute Summer dresses that it was very hard to choose which ones to buy.  This one specially is one I will probably be wearing more.  
Happy Tuesday friends!

Weekend

Image
Friday is here!!
I have never been a fan of celebrating Fridays because I love celebrating all days (even Mondays) but lately the weekend brings joy.  It could very well be the fact that towns are opening up and I can finally go get that drink I have been dreaming about.  Not to say I didn't have any while in quarantine, but it just sounds better when someone else is making it and serving it.   I wore this a couple of Saturdays ago when we had a little picnic at the park.  That was a fun day!  Staying home these past months really taught me to appreciate the little things.  Maybe I will put my feelings down on a post about it soon, but for now lets cheer to Friday.

All Things Off The Shoulder

Image
Off the shoulder and maxi skirts, need I say more?
I could wear this style everyday during the Summer, I think maxi skirts are fantastic when trying to stay cool.  This skirt in particular is one of my favorites, it is an oldie in my closet, but I don't think I can ever part with it.  I styled it with this Sofia Vergara off the shoulder top from Walmart and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised as to how well  made it is.  I bought a couple more pieces from her line and I can't wait to wear them.  Including a pair of her jeans with the hopes that my tooshie would look like hers, but I don't think that can ever happen LOL
Happy Wednesday!

Jumping of Joy

Image
How can jumpsuits be so comfortable, but at the same time annoying?
I will be the first one to buy a jumper over anything, but we have to agree that as comfy as they are, it is a pain to go to the bathroom when wearing one LOL   I wasn't sure how to style this beauty.  I contemplated if I should wear a belt, but settled for a scarf around my neck instead.  As you can imagine, I am having a scarf loving moment (you'll see on some future posts) and wanted so bad to wear this silk beauty I found on my last Goodwill trip.  
Gosh I miss the stores....

Lace

Image
There is something very feminine about lace.
Every time I wear lace I feel a bit extra.  I am not sure if it's because of how delicate it makes any garment, or just because it screams feminism.  This is another piece I bought in the beginning of the year that I never got around to wearing.  It was a bit challenging, since I ran out of double sided tape and as you can see the neck line is very low.  But, I manage to go grocery and plant shopping without an accident and that is a win in my book :)

I am having a "dresses" moment.
The weather is warming up and wearing dresses is the easiest and most comfortable.  As I continue to shop my own closet, I keep finding these little gems that were once placed all the way in the back waiting for a chance to be worn.  This dress in particular,  I have for almost five years with tags on! I cannot believe I waited this long to take it out for a spin.  The shoes are part of my last thrifting trip, they are so comfortable and went well with the 70's print and vibe I was going for here.
Happy Thursday!

Polka is my thing!
During this quarantine I have been loving re-discovering what is already in my closet.  Not able to go out and walk the mall  has not only saved me money, but also has forced me to clean my wardrobe. This is only the second time I wear this dress and I have no idea why because it is adorable.  I joke all the time when I say I have nothing to wear and now I am holding myself accountable to always look first before buying a new item, if we ever get to go out to events LOL

A Lady And Her Mask

Image
Happy end of May....
Never in a millions thoughts and ideas for this little blog of mine, crossed my mind that I would have a outfit post wearing a mask.  But in times like we are living now, it just appropriate.   Do I like wearing a mask? no.  Does it make me feel safe? a little.  I guess we all have a different view on this and for now I choose to follow.  The mask is not the only item that makes this outfit!  I found this pants at Walmart and let me tell you, I was pleasantly  surprised  as to how much I love them. The brand is Scoop and they were very reasonably priced, which was my favorite thing.
Happy weekend friends!

The unofficial start of Summer is here!
May is one of my favorite months and even though I am sad to see it go (this time went by fast) I can't help but get excited for the warmer days ahead.  Not really sure what this Summer would be like, but one thing I am sure of is that I will make the best of it.
Sooo... This outfit was put together in a matter of minutes.  The skirt is part of a set but I don't know what happened to the top LOL  I was glad it came together well with a little bit of mix prints and this beautiful kimono type of blouse.   White slides and flowers completed the Spring vive I was looking for.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Oh That Quarantine Time

Image
What has everyone done to keep occupied during this time?

I am not getting dressed up as much as I wanted lets face it, not much going on to get dressed up for, but I have been entertaining myself with items I already have in my closet and it has been lots of fun.  Dresses like this one that were supposed to be worn early in May for an event and so many other fun outfits that I am sure and positive I will wear sooner rather than later.

I read on someone's IG story that 2020 is over and that just blew my mind.  Sure it is not a great situation, but just today I saw that Spain and Italy are opening up and the people are happy and doing the best they can.

And that is exactly what I plan to do when things here in USA start to get better. But for now my balcony and my boyfriend's backyard it is!

Bermuda Dreams

Image
Missing my thrifting trips when I look at this outfit.
These pieces were what I found on my last thrift trip before quarantine.  I often go see what they have and sometimes, actually, most of the times I come home empty handed. But this last time I found these pair of  Gap bermuda shorts (with original tags on it) and this beautiful pink blouse/jacket.  The price was also right, since all I paid was $14 for both items.  I can't wait to style them again!

What I Found In My Closet

Image
That moment when you shop your closet and find gems that you either forgot you bought or just items you haven't worn in a long time.  This dress is one of them! I forgot how adorable the off the shoulder style is and how comfortable this dress feels.   A dress is my go to style for the warmer weather and I cannot wait to wear this one again with sandals.
Happy Tuesday!

Always Play Dress Up

Always play dress up my favorite t-shirt.
What is the one thing helping you cope with this times? Me is getting dressed up.  I don't do it as often as I want (some days are better than others) but for now Sunday is my day.  I look forward to it and to walking outside and snapping photos.  
We are on week #6 and it is flying by. 
Hope you are all safe and healthy.

In A Transition State Of Mind

Image
Happy Saturday friends!
So, we have had a few beautiful Sundays here and I have been taking full advantage.  Not being able to go out as much as I would like, it is a treat when the weather during the weekend is sunny and bright. I have been thrifting a lot of my pieces and this skirt is one of those finds.  I got it right before quarantine started and I knew it would be a perfect transition item from Spring to Summer.  
Hope you have a great weekend!

Give Me That Jumpsuit

Image
who else loves jumpsuits?  But hates going to the bathroom when wearing them? 
Jumpsuits are so easy to style and very comfortable to wear.  I dressed it up for the office with this snake printed blouse and added pumps and socks staying with the same color palette.
Hope you are all staying healthy.

Oh Those Sleeves

Image
I have always been a fan of balloon sleeves and when I discover Shein had so many options at such a good price, I couldn't resist.  The pink on this blouse is so vibrant and happy that I wore it as soon as I received it. Hopefully this trend lasts for a long time because it is one I am very excited about.
Happy Tuesday!

My Quarantine Must Haves

Image
Happy Sunday!
Here are just a few things that are getting me thru this quarantine .

Doing my nails maybe like two times a week.  I usually do my own and only go to the salon once a month to clean and shape them, but given the circumstances I might just keep doing my own manicure until things really and I mean really come to normal.

Getting outside every chance I get.  This one has been very important for my mind and my health.  Obviously staying away from other people and washing my hands as soon as I get back home.

My room!  It is the most peaceful room in my home.

I am a big breakfast fan specially on the weekend and since I cannot go to the restaurant and sit there I decided to make my own.  I love cooking so this one was a new brainier.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I am however still working, so that still makes me have a sense of normalcy during the week and the majority of these I do on the weekend.
