Animal Print 101

Leopard print. Who doesn't love it? This fun print is something every girl should have in their closet. Whether you decide to wear leopard flats or a leopard belt, this print can bring your outfit to life. Believe it or not, this print is considered a neutral color. With it's tan, beige, and black colors, you could pretty much pair this print with anything. Try to stick with one leopard print piece. If you decide to go bold like this blouse, pair it up with a solid color of your choice. A pop of hot pink, red, or burgundy pants like this one would go perfectly with this top. To balance the look, I chose two-tone flats for comfort.

Stripe like Blue

On my way to work yesterday, I was listening to Sugarland's "stuck like glue," so of course, today's title post is inspired by the song. Cheesy right?
 
I confess, this outfit was not planned. It was a sleepy walk to the closet and picking out what stood out the most, which was this stripe cardigan. The rest, well, it's pretty much self-explanatory. Can't go wrong with denim on denim. Good day loves!

Spring Break

It's time to start making room in your closet and start putting away some of your winter clothes. Spring break will be here before you know it. For you students and hard workers, go ahead and kick your feet up, have yourself a piña colada, and relax from the stresses that surround you. Whether you're heading on a road trip with friends or just enjoying the beautiful sun at the beach, make sure you do it with style. This look is something I would wear for a cool relaxing day at a vacation hot spot. Are you looking forward to Spring Break?

Casual Heart

Like Klaus would say from Vampire Diaries, Good day loves! What a weekend huh? Did you watch the Oscars? Which celebrity look was your favorite? Mine had to be the gorgeous Jessica Chastain. Her coppery-nude sequin strapless dress by Armani Prive...wow, I mean, she was absolutely stunning and so Hollywood glam. The touch of red lips and simplicity of her hair was just perfect. I loved it! 
                       
On to my outfit, I've had this cute satchel purse for quite sometime but it's just been collecting dust in my closet so I think it was time to make a debut. Taking a simple casual sweater, dark jeans, and paring it with bold lips and purse would bring a casual look from simple to fun. 
 
I can finally see! these affordable eyeglasses from Bonlook are exactly what I was looking for. I've wanted some cute trendy cat eye frames for a very long time and I got them! The process to purchase them online was super easy and fast. Another cool feature they have is the "virtual try on,"which gives you an idea on how the eyeglasses would look on you. Now, that's a way to win a customer's heart.

On Black


With finals happening this week, I feel like I've been running on fumes. I need to keep telling myself  it's okay to stop and take a breather. Sometimes I believe if I stay on the "Go," things will get done rather quickly; however, it only wears me out. So with that being said, I will make sure to enjoy the moment and not sweat the small stuff. One day at a time my friends. 

To make my day a little interesting, I decided to play a small prank on one of the branch heads.  During one of the many weekly meetings, and after being given a set of instructions by him, I decided to quote the youtube video sensation "Sweet Brown" (If you haven't seen it, you need to).  I just replied to him "Ain't nobody got time for that!" Needless to say, there was a brighter vibe in the room from that moment on and that my friends, is how you turn your day around.  Alright, so this hasn't actually happened yet but my co-workers and I were fantasizing about it, LOL. Don't wait for the positive things to happen......you need to make them happen. 


Little black dress (LBD). How many of you own one? This little cutie is such a great whimsical piece to invest in. You can incorporate so many looks to this dress. From wearing a sweater over it or adding a simple cardigan like I did. From work to happy hour, you can make your LBD look flawless. Cheers to $3 Chardonnay!

Owl say this is cute!

Don't you wish there were more hours in a day? Although I had a 3-day weekend, I feel like I didn't accomplish as much as I wanted too. What can you do right? Just keep moving forward!

How adorable is this owl dress? This look is actually perfect for one of those "Things to do" days.  It is also perfect for other things like going to the movies, the park, etc.  This piece is one of my purchases from Charlotte Russe and I love how the style has a vintage feel to it. I paired it with this cute half-sleeve cardigan from Target. Since the weather was nice and cool, to keep my toes nice and toasty, I decided to stick with boots.

Monochromatic Gamble

So, I am a mommy! Ok, I am not really having a baby (although I wish it would happen soon!), but hubby and I adopted the most adorable puppy anyone could ever ask for; he's a Shepherd & Labrador mix. We were contemplating on whether we should go forward with adopting a dog, but I think it was the right moment to do so. We named him Titan and he's a playful one. He loves to cuddle and be loved. I posted a pic of him in my Instagram and a small video in Vine (daintyjea) if you would like to check him out. 

I purchased this sweater from Forever 21 a few days ago and what caught my attention was the type of color and design. I don't own a sweater like this one, so this was a must staple piece to invest in my closet. To stay within the same color scheme, I opted from my typical skinny jean to a burgundy corduroy skinny. Ok, who likes free stuff? I do! I got this scarf from Charlotte Russe on a sale they have going on, which ends today. I love the soft colors and floral prints, which pair up nicely with this look without overwhelming it. Monochromatic looks are fun to style, especially with pieces that have unique designs.

Aztec

Yesterday was a wonderful and successful Valentine's for the hubby and I. He took me to dinner and a movie, which was very sweet and much needed. We watched Nicholas Sparks "Safe Haven," which was amazing! I love all his movies and how romantic they are. What can I say? I am hopeless romantic.

I had an eye for this dress from the day it was posted as a new arrival in ShopRuche. I swear, I stalk this store at least three times a week. I'm always looking forward to seeing what they have in store. I just can't get enough of them! The colors and Aztec print on the dress is a statement itself. Isn't it pretty? This is the first time in a while I wore pointy shoes, and I was surprised on how comfortable they were. I am happy with the outcome. What do you think?
