Printed Pants

Date Night

Top: Dorothy Perkins, Pants: Nordstrom, Necklace: ModCloth, Purse: H&M, Shoes: Windsor

For those who know me, I am a print girl. My goal this year is to incorporate more printed pants into my outfit looks.  If you walk into my closet, you will notice I own less than 5 printed jeans. Shaking my head. The lack of printed pants I make up for with colored jeans. Now that, I have plenty! This week I was talking to my friend on how I need to purchase more printed pants, rather than buy more tops. Gives me an excuse to go shopping.
I love to be comfortable but still add a twist of chic and girly to my look. This weekend wear is something you would catch me more often with but don't get me wrong, when it's time to go out for a date night or cocktail, I like to transform my look into a sophisticated feminine look. The date night outfit would be a look that I would pull off for a day like Valentine's. Who says you need to wear red on Valentine's day? ;)

Heart of Gold

The weather in San Diego continues to impress me, so I thought I would be brave and pull of this look without a jacket. Just for the outfit pic that is.  I saw this sequins heart top at Rainbow while shopping in Puerto Rico and did not hesitate once after looking at the price. I purchased these polka dot pants in Marshall's and love the combination of these two. These pants compliment the top very nicely without overwhelming the look. For a top and bottom to be less than $40, I have to say not bad!

Walking into Target is like walking into Disneyland for me.  It is always fun to experience the wild ride these beautiful outfits take me and of course at reasonable prices.  You may expect to see Mickey Mouse but if you are willing to experiment with outfits, you might just enjoy the entire gang. 

The variety of handbags at Target were too adorable to disregard. I came across this butternut tote and knew I had to lay my hands on it. I've been looking for one of this color and size. It fits all of my personal items.

Make that step without hesitation...

My weekend consisted of auntie time. I spent some quality time with my nephew who turned 8 on Friday. We had a cake for him, ate some pizza, and Sunday we went to Dave & Busters to eat, play, and have fun. It was a productive weekend and glad I got to spend quality time with him.
The San Diego weather likes to play tricks on us sometimes and you never know what you are going to get. The weekend was mostly rainy, cold, and gloomy, so I made sure I dressed appropriately. To stay warm, I wore my favorite burgundy corduroy pants and paired them with this plaid shirt from H&M. This color combination reminds me of fall and how I do not want to let go.

Fashion at the Bay

Lately, anytime I want to take outfit pics it's already getting dark outside and the sun gets away from me just like my dreams of one day marrying Ricky Martin. Wasn't that a dream crusher? By the way, kudos to my friend on selecting this location. We literally were rushing to beat the sun.  So today instead of taking pictures at my place, I tried to give you all some eye candy.  This is a beautiful view of the San Diego Bay near Point Loma, California.

Lacey Day

Yesterday was a relax day for hubby and I. I am glad I took full advantage of this three day weekend and caught up with all of my duties. We ended the weekend with a dinner and movie date. I love spending quality time with him and catching up. It's the simplest things that make me happy. 

I was shopping through my closet and suddenly it hit me, I have a lot of clothes! You know how sometimes you just stare at the closet and say to yourself it's just not enough. Ha! I need an intervention. Don't judge me, lol. 

I found this cute soft pink cardigan hanging in my closet from ShopRuche and immediately thought about the socks I purchased from Target. I put two and two together and already had this outfit in mind. So, the moral of the story is, hang a little longer in your closet and see what you come up with. Have fun! ;)

Be creative! Let your surroundings inspire you.

I found this little driveway on my way to work and I had to stop and check it out. The place is so serene and filled with beautiful trees, perfect for an outfit pic. This top was a gift from my friend who was nice enough to take these photos. The weather was a little chilly, so glad I layered the look with a jean jacket and scarf. You can't go wrong with layering. It's suitable for a place like San Diego.

Never give up on your dream....Happy Monday!

Head to Toe

Wow, this is so weird and it wasn't even in the plans. While uploading today's post, I realized my outfit from head to toe is from Target (minus necklace and purse). I usually plan my outfits in advance, but this look was done at the last minute. I was almost fashionably late to work. No bueno. Who knows, maybe I should wait to the last minute when creating a look to see what other store I come up with.    

I wanted to bring out some of the colors of the blouse, and I achieved that by adding a dainty light blue sky belt to my look. 

Blouse: Target, Necklace: Forever21, Skinny Belt: Target, Jeans: Target, Booties: Target, Purse: CottonOn

Hope you have an amazing day and remember, keep the faith.
