Jumpsuits for Spring

There are so many spring trends to try, but one trend I've kept my eye on is the jumpsuit. This one-piece staple is perfect for those days you just want to throw something on without trying so hard but yet, look put together - It's the perfect alternative for dresses and separates, especially for those warmer days. Jumpsuits are great to wear on a vacation trip (not to mention, lightweight and easy to pack!), happy hour with friends, or even a wedding - You can pair it with your favorite heels or espadrilles sandals and you're ready for the day! I've rounded some of my favorites below which are all under $50.

How To Style Bermuda Shorts

Doing something a little different today, I'm sharing two looks in one post, just because! But first, let's get the question out-of-the-way - how does one style knee-length shorts, aka 'Bermuda Shorts' for spring and summer? Here's how...because I want a comfy and flattering look, I focused on the top and shoes, and went with the fitted knee-length shorts. For me, this is the easiest to style because you can go with a blouse, button down, or a tie knot. Not a fan of the fitted style? You can also rock this trend with boyfriend Bermuda shorts (oversized and distressed) and again...the key is to look put together and pretty! So if you're over it wearing long skinny jeans and short denim shorts for the warmer months, this trend is one you must try!

Spring Dress

Happy Hump Day! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen in the beginning of the month I had mentioned, I was on the hunt for new dresses - flowy and casual comfort. Well,  I did just that! Now that the warm weather is finally here, there are many adorable dresses available to shop for. Especially, this Stripe Sweetheart Skater Dress which is on sale for less than $21! I love how comfortable it is and breathable - plus, it's a stripe dress, so it's a double yes in my book. While you can style the dress without a jacket, I opted for layer because I felt more comfortable with a little more coverage. To top of the look, I paired it with my favorite espadrilles sandals from last year which I can't get enough of.

Blouses for Spring and Summer

When I'm on the hunt for new blouses, I want to make sure I can wear it at the workplace, as well as an off day. If I were to wear this top to the office, I would pair it with a fitted skirt and mule sandals for a business casual look. Now, for my off day look, this is exactly how I would wear it - cute, chic, but comfy. Some of my favorite go-to blouses are prints, ruffles, and peplum style. So, if you are looking for new blouses for spring and summer, I've shared a couple below under $50 that will work perfectly for the office or a weekend look.

Spring Overalls

You guys, never have I ever worn denim overalls in my life, and the fact that I'm trying this trend at 35 is kind of late in the game...but hey, there is always a first for everything, am I right? I've been on the hunt for a good pair of affordable denim overalls and what can I say, Marshalls never disappoints. I found this pair for less than $30 and I just couldn't pass on the deal! It's the perfect style for spring and summer. I'm loving the hem side slit and distressed style for a comfortable, yet chic fit. To keep the sexy look going, I went with a fitted top and my current spring shoe obsession, espadrilles, which I shared in my latest post - spring shoes under $50. Another way to style denim overalls for spring is with an off-the-shoulder top and block heels for a day night or a girls night out. Would you try this trend for spring and summer?

I am so excited for the many shoe options this new season has to offer that I had to share my current favorites with y'all.

No worries! These closed flats, which I own and faithfully wear everyday to the office are super comfy.

Mommy and Me Look

When you're trying to shoot a mommy and me look but it's a total fail. Hey, such is life but at least she's not crying! Any who, temperatures in San Diego where in the low 70s over the weekend so what better time to wear this match comfy look than now!

I purchased Emily’s sweater and denim jacket a couple of days ago because I knew I wanted to create a mommy and me look. We received so many compliments over the weekend, especially about our matching sneaks! I mean, how stinky cute are they?! We've been wearing these shoes non-stop since I bought them and it's now become our favorite. I swear, It's the perfect shoe to wear when traveling long distance or spending a day at the park; super comfy, yet stylish!

Mommy tips

Mommy life is not easy, my friends...however, I wouldn't change it for the world. For those who don’t know, we struggled with fertility for years but we are forever grateful the Lord grant us our wish to become parents to the cutest little girl, Emily Isabelle, who is straight up a social butterfly and full of personality! You guys, I can't believe we officially have a toddler...where did time go?! No joke, I have  conversations about what to eat or what Peppa Pig episode to watch and I love it! I swear, she's a little Minnie me but extra, lol! My mom tells me all the time (in her Puerto Rican accent), "Igualita ti cuando eras pequeña! (translation: Exactly like you when you were little!)." The crazy thing is that my husband is the complete opposite of both of us, he's SUCH an introvert. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.  With that being said, I wanted to share with y'all a couple of mommy tips that has helped me the past two years.

Don't be so hard on yourself. You're not always going to have all the right answers...Simple as that. Just take one day at a time and go with what feels right. Everyday is a learning experience.

Me time. You HAVE to take care of yourself. Allow some "me" time. Whether it be getting your nails done, spa day, or a night-out with the gals...go take care of you so you don’t lose yourself.

Activities. Try to do one activity a week (especially, my 9 to 5 momma's) so your child can stay social or active for that week. We love going to the park or indoor playground.

What are some ways you like to stay busy with your child ? Please share below!

Knotted Button Down Shirt

I have to be honest, button down shirts are my least favorite thing to both wear and shop for but, since I've become a mom, my body has change so it's time to change it up in the name of fashion. I found that wearing blouses with the top button undone creates a v-neckline style which draws the eye down and visually streamlines my shape. By wearing a v-neck style shirt, you elongate the torso making the neck look longer, which is a plus in my book! To complete my look, I paired this top with my favorite denim jeans and slip-on flats for the perfect weekend ensemble. 

Now that it's officially spring, you can style a button downed shirt with a pair of denim shorts or your favorite skirt. You can tie it up on the front, tuck it in, or wear as is! All-in-all, have fun styling it. It's definitely a versatile piece that would work perfect for spring and summer.

Lace Trim Top

I don't what it is lately but I've been gravitating toward girly pieces for spring. As you can tell, I have this thing for bows now...as seen here. Just too cute to pass! I love anything blue and pink, especially pastel since it's the perfect color combo for spring. While on the hunt for new spring pieces, I found this Lauren Conrad's lace trim top at Kohl's and just had to have it. I styled it by pairing it with dark distressed denim jeans with a lighter denim wash jacket for contrast. To keep the feminine look going, I went with these blue block heels for a bit more dressed up look. What's your favorite color to wear for spring?
