Sweater Weather

I've always been a fan of sweaters. I love how I can wear it over a dress, with a skirt or even shorts...bottom line, it just works any way you style it! Typically, I go for the basic colored sweaters but this fall, I am expanding my options. Lately, I am loving the different style of sleeves, like the one I'm wearing - I found this beauty at Marshalls! From ruffles, cute ties, to bell sleeves, you name it...I need it! They can make such a difference to a look without trying so hard, right? All-in-all, sweaters are the perfect staple for fall. Do you have a style preference you'd like to try this season?

Fall is here - How to Help Puerto Rico

Yes, fall season is here! But not quite, for us west coast peeps. We are starting to feel the cool breeze creeping in (Finally!) but I love the fact that we can still get away with summer staples, like these go-to slip-on mule flats; you guys, I live in these! Because I'm a mom, I'm all about comfort but being stylish at the same time. I love that I can wear these flats with a pair of denim shorts or a skirt and still feel "dressed up" while not trying so hard, which is a win-win in my book!

On another note, you may be wondering why I've been MIA lately...see below.

If you've been watching the news lately, I'm sure you've heard my beautiful island, Puerto Rico, is struggling with the aftermath of hurricane Maria, and to be quite honest...it felt weird to post about fashion and style. Although, I thank God ALL my family members (including my husband's side) are safe, it breaks my heart to see the devastation it has caused the island. Imagine not having a roof over your head, water, or electricity for months! Can you imagine?! Some of my family members have lost it all but rest assure, we Puerto Rican's, are fighters and believe that God is always in control! We will overcome. 

How to Donate 

I'm all about sharing organizations that will provide direct help to those in needs; hence, the late post (had to do thorough research before I shared). 

Unidos Por Puerto Rico: United for Puerto Rico is an initiative brought forth by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló, with the purpose of providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Maria. 

B Strong:  Bethenny Frankel, Real Housewives of New York, her B Strong Program, are going above and beyond for the Puerto Rican people. She has managed to get over 20+ planes with thousands of goods to the island and has documented the whole process in her social media sites, which is what I love to see. She's a go-getter and doesn't let anything get in her way. I LOVE what she's doing for the Puerto Rican people! 

You Caring: Organized by Ricky Martin. The Ricky Martin Foundation team on the ground is already working with the local government, local volunteers and the First Lady of Puerto Rico to provide urgently needed food, water, clothing and medical supplies.

You guys, if you donate at least a dollar, you have no idea the difference you're making. Just place yourself in their shoes...just imagine...any little bit counts!

How to Style a button down shirt & 5 facts about me

You guys, I don't remember the last time I wore a button down shirt...like, for real. Now that I'm getting older, my sense of style has changed drastically. Don't get me wrong, my go-to style is still comfort; however, I love exploring new options - hence, the button down shirt! It's always fun trying out new trends; nevertheless, I'm all about shopping on a budget. I found this stripe button down shirt at Marshalls and fell in love! Of course, there are so many ways to style it but I went for the denim skirt, it's so comfy and mommy style approved! If you've noticed, my obsession for slip-on mule flats is going strong. Momma's, this is what I call comfort at it's best! And just because, I'm sharing five facts you may not know about me down below!


Five facts to know about me:

1. Pastor's daughter. Yes, you read that right! My parents are pastors. I've been raised in church ALL my life; While I'm not perfect, I try to put God first in all of my life choices.

2. Where I would love to live? If  could, I would LOVE to live in Charleston, SC. When I attended the The Blog Society Conference, I fell in love with the city! It's  hospitality and history is what drew me in. I want to go back ASAP!

3. Death. You guys, even though I'm a believer, I'm afraid of death...I don't know why...But it just terrifies me.

4. Wing-eyeliner. I'm all about the wing-eyeliner. It's my signature look...Cute, simple, and to the point.

5. Afghanistan and Iraq. Yes, I served in the United States Army, and I deployed to both countries. Let's just say...you become grateful for what you have. 

Happy Hump Day!

Plaid Shirt Dress

Happy Monday, friends! My weekend consists of running errands and spending quality time with my little, Emily. She's 18 months old and I swear, she's already in the "terrible two's." She definitely has the Puerto Rican attitude but momma is trying to keep her in check. My mom keeps reminding me how I was exactly like her...but I guess it's pay back - ha! Any who, the summer weather is slowly creeping away and I can start feeling the cool breeze. However, I do live in San Diego, so I can still pull-off easy breezy looks. I love pairing this plaid shift dress with my new slip-on mule flats. A simple look for the mom on-the-go! Y'all, I'm obsess with black and white but I love how this plaid shift dress comes in three different color options, which are perfect for fall. Just pair them with a pair of booties and you are set!
