Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!



Well here we are again, it’s the start of another year! The beginning of the new year can mean a lot of things to different people, for me, 2018 is the start of bettering my body and mind. When I look back on 2017, I can’t complain. It was the year I completed my one year at my first post-grad job, the year I advanced my career with my second post-grad job, the year of fun concerts and the year I rediscovered my passion for blogging.

My 2018 resolutions are to get into better shape, to not take myself too seriously and to continue sharing my passion for fashion with you all! I hope not to slack off, but if I do, I will look back at this post and remind myself to not give up.


For my New Year’s weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to spend it in San Antonio. We already spent time with our families during Christmas break, so New Year’s was for us.

On the last Saturday before the break, we spent some time Brackenridge Park, one of our favorite parks. If it hasn’t already become apparent, I love spending time at my local parks. While, I’m not the biggest outdoor person, I love taking time to visit a park and enjoy nature. Plus, it’s a great place to clear one’s mind and take some photos!


My last outfit of 2017, consisted of new buys that I don’t regret! I was able to cop some grey torn skinny jeans from Zara year-end sale. If you haven’t visited Zara recently, make a trip. They always have great deals at the beginning of the new year. I paired my new jeans with an old distressed blue jean button up from Forever 21, that I layered on top of my black tee from PacSun.

I completed my look with my dark green cap from Aldo and my new hi-top Vans. Ever since I purchased the low-top version of the shoes I’m sporting, I’ve become obsessed with Vans. I mean, I’m obsessed with shoes overall!


As I think back to 2017, I realize how blessed I was. The good and the bad has led to where I’m at this very moment typing this. Here’s to more accomplishments in 2018 and not letting the bad moments get me down!


Workwear for Creatives


Work look

Working at a digital marketing firm, dressing appropriately doesn’t mean wearing a suit and tie. Now, even though a suit is great, my type of dressing up doesn’t alway fit that standard. I enjoy wearing a nice pair of slim fit khakis with the cuffs rolled up and some funky socks. It’s great that I can rock this look majority of the time. Sure, when you’re meeting with clients it’s a requirement to wear business attire. However, on the days you have no meetings, try something similar to the outfit I wore this past week.


I paired my khakis and socks with a lightweight gingham button down shirt, a timeless pattern that’s perfect for summer. With the summer heat just getting started, it’s best to stick to lighter colors and lightweight fabrics. Adult jobs usually don’t allow you to wear shorts to work, so this is a great way to keep cool.

Messenger Bag

I finished my workwear off with leather, lots of leather! My asos suede shoes and an awesome leather laptop bag from Aldo. Note, a nice bag leather bag gives you a “ready to kick butt at work” look.

If you get a chance, try loosen up your workwear. If you can’t, try this look on casual Friday or even during the weekend.

Enjoy a Cold, Sunny Day in Style



The best days in winter are the days where you get the cold breeze and the sun is out. This weather lets you enjoy the opportunity to step outside and enjoy winter, and not having to worry about wearing layers of coats and/or sweaters.

This Sunday I got to enjoy some time out at the local Japanese Tea Garden here in San Antonio, TX. For the day I wore a sweater and button up shirt combination. My mustard color wool sweater from DKNY kept me warm and let me stand out. On a cold sunny day I find it acceptable to wear some bright colors to go with the mood. I’m an advocate for dark colors for fall and winter, but on a sunny day mix it up.

To compliment my sweater, I wore some funky orange socks from J. Crew and a pair of tan dress shoes from Aldo. For winter I suggest investing in some funky patterned or print socks, you can find them at almost every store nowadays. I’m sure that you can find one to fit your personality or the occasion.


As for the shoes, winter is the perfect time to not only wear leather boots, but to wear some nice dress shoes for a casual time out. Now I’m not saying to bust out your best work shoes, but invest in a nice affordable pair that you can wear during the day or even for a night out. Aldo is a brand that has nice shoes with prices that won’t break the bank.

On the next cold, sunny day, try adding a bright color sweater to your work or casual attire.

My look: Sweater-DKNY, Button up shirt-American Eagle, Grey skinny chinos-Gap, dress shoes-Aldo.

Big Hats and Short Sleeves

When it comes to stepping out, I always prefer to wear a button down shirt. The summer days have been scorching hot in San Antonio, so I’ve traded in my long sleeves for short sleeves.

I tend to gravitate towards printed button downs, because they add personality to any outfit. Trust me when I say, you’ll get more compliments when you opt for a shirt that begs to be noticed.

For this look, I paired my Topman cloud printed shirt with my barely worn Topman puritan hat. On a sunny day, a hat will keep the sun out of your face. Plus, it adds even more of a wow factor to your outfit. I mentioned in a previous post that a man offered to buy my hat from me. That didn’t happen to me this time, but remember that hats will attract compliments or money. It’s always a good thing when someone offers to buy an item from your outfit.

I finished off the look with some gray torn jeans from H&M, a necklace from Aldo, and my favorite pair of Converse.

I’ll be rocking big hats and short sleeves for the remainder of the summer. Will you be doing the same?

Stay classy, mi amigos!

Graffiti Park


This past week I got some much needed leisure time in the wonderful city of Austin. I went down famous South Congress street, ate at Hopdoddy Burger Bar, and for the first time visited Graffiti Park at Castle Hills.


It was a beautiful sunny day in the high 60s, so the first time in a month I was able to wear just a white Gap V-neck. I paired it with some grey torn jeans from H&M, and my new pair of Chelsea boots from Aldo. Towards the evening I added my faux leather Zara bomber jacket to keep warm.


For accessories I wore a necklace from Aldo and a Topman felted wool hat I got from Nordstrom. The highlight of my day is when a gentleman in a band offered to buy my hat from me. It’s always a good thing when someone offers to buy an item from your outfit.

Be sure to check out Nordstrom and get yourself a felted wool hat. I’m sure you’ll receive lots of compliments and offers to buy your hat as well.

Stay classy, mi amigos!
