Spring Shoes under $50

Are you ready to swap winter shoes for a great pair of spring espadrilles, sandals, slip-on's or wedges? 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. So, if you prefer closed or open shoes, either style will work perfectly for this spring and summer.

There are so many affordable options that I am loving, especially, these wedges from target... LOVE! I think they'd go perfectly with a floral maxi dress for a day of wine tasting with your favorite gals or even that cute Easter Sunday dress you have hanging in your closet. Not crazy for open shoes? No worries! These closed flats, which I own and faithfully wear everyday to the office are super comfy. 

All-in-all, these selections are affordable and will go with any look. What are some of your favorites for spring and summer?

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 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?

Gingham for Spring

Finally, giving denim jeans a break and wearing this pretty gingham dress for today's post as a  spring must-have! When styling a dress for spring, any shoe works. Depending on your preference, you can totally rock this look with flats, heels, sandals, or booties but because I'm all about comfort, I went with booties. But can we talk about the pretty bows on the back of this dress?! I mean, how more spring can it get?! For reference, I'm wearing a small, true to size (TTS). What are some of your favorite ways to style a dress for spring?
