Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide

It's been way too long since I've been on the blog, If you read my last post you may recall when I said I was feeling better. I must have jinx myself or something, because I ended going right back to feeling horrible. I hate being sick!!
But on a much brighter note, I am now back to somewhat full health (this horrible weather does not help at all) and can get back to shooting and posting for you guys! I teamed up with Francesca's to bring you a Holiday Gift Guide (I'm not gonna lie its more of a wish list lol) that can hopefully help you get some ideas for looks and what to get for your chicas this coming holiday season. These are my top 10 items from Francesca's website.

You know I'm a jeans lover, so why not spice up the regular blue jeans and get something a little more fun for the upcoming holiday season. Pair them with a light knitted sweater, ankle heeled booties and some statement earrings or a statement necklace and you are ready for any dinner party.

Who would think that the once dreaded pocho would become such a fashionable piece this fall/winter?! Pair it with some super skinny jeans and riding boots for a cozy and comfy look.

The perfect piece to start the New Years, that's all I have to say. LOVE IT!!
wear this beauty with some black skinnies, black or nude heels and finish it off by adding a pop of red on your lips.

This adorable top can be worn with tights and a skater/circle skirt for a fun party look. The fact that is  burgundy and has scallop detailing just makes me want it even more!

There is nothing I love more than style and comfort in one piece. These leggings bring you the right amount of chicness to wear them out to any holiday party while keeping you comfortable... and lets not forget how they'll give you that extra eating room that I'm all about! ;D

There is nothing I love more than a good scarf to protect you from the horrible winter cold that has approached us quite earlier than expected. I am a huge fan of big scarves and when the 'blanket' scarf became the item to have this fall/winter I could not be happier! This piece is a great item to wrap around your neck and stay toasty when the weather just gets colder and colder.

And of course, this wouldn't be a Wendy's guide/wish list without some sort of tan/camel color item. My obsession is serious, no shame in admitting it! Like I've mentioned in many posts before, this color goes with literally anything in your closet. Wear these babies with some jeans, an oversized sweater and top it off with a chunky scarf and you are ready for anything! 

Ever since my sister graduated from college and my dad decided to give her some diamonds earrings, my desire to have a pair of diamond studs has grown. Let's just say I still have plenty of years ahead of me before I graduate college and can possibly get a real pair myself. So these adorable ones are a great alternative for when your budget is nowhere near the real ones. They are a perfect everyday stud, rock these beauties with a messy top knot and minimal makeup for when you want to show your natural, effortless side or go for a bright lip to show your fun and classy side!

My love for statement necklaces has seriously grown over the past year, they have become one of my favorite add on pieces to spice up any simple outfit. I fell in love with how versatile the different colors make this necklace, subtle yet fashionable and chic. 

Even though my obsession with statement necklace has grown over the passed year, My love for dainty jewelry will never really end. This dainty gold necklace is a perfect layering piece, yet still stunning enough to wear by itself. pair it with a simple sweater during the fall for a subtle statement!

If you like any of my top 10 items from Francesca's, make sure to check out Francesca's Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday deals. 
They are definitely going to be having some great ones!!

I'm hoping to get my hands on the black leggings, the lace peplum tank, the boots and the blanket scarf during their deals!! What would you love to get your hands on this coming weekend??

Rule Breaker

Whoever came up with the fashion rule that mixing black and brown was a 'no, no!', probably never actually wore these two colors together!
Even though I had planned to share way more looks this week, my body seemed to think the opposite and got horribly sick on me :/ On a brighter note, I am feeling much better and can finally share this look I wore on Monday, which I'm completely in love with! There are certain things most people agree are a total don't when it comes to fashion, I've always heard that you should never mix black and brown because they don't seemed to go. I, on the other hand, am a big fan of mixing these two colors (I'm obsessed with tan, remember?!? lol). These gorgeous earrings, another beautiful and affordable piece from Luxe Statements, inspired me to share how I style the two colors together.  This look is perfect for the cool yet beautiful weather we were having in VA, I love how the leather jacket adds a little edge to the look while the ankle heeled Sam Edelman booties and the statement earrings dress the look up a bit. Even though I only wore this to class, this look can easily work for everyday, a casual date or even a girls night. making this one of those looks perfect for pretty much any occasion while staying stylish, put together, yet comfortable!!


El que se le ocurrió crear la regla de moda que mezclar el color negro y marrón es un "no, no!", Probablemente nunca en realidad an usado estos dos colores juntos!
A pesar de que había planeado compartir muchos más looks esta semana, mi cuerpo pareció pensar lo contrario y consiguio enfermace :/ En una nota más agradable, me siento mucho mejor y, finalmente, puedo compartir este look que me puse el lunes, lo que estoy completamente enamorada de el! Hay ciertas cosas que la mayoría de las personas están de acuerdo de no hacer cuando se trata de moda, yo siempre he oído que nunca se debe mezclar el negro y marrón, ya que no parecen ir. Yo, por el contrario, soy una gran fan de la mezcla de estos dos colores (estoy obsesionado con el color marron/tan, ¿recuerdas?!? Lol). Estos pendientes , otra pieza hermosa y económica de Luxe Statements, me inspiraron a compartir la forma en que yo usaria los dos colores juntos. Este look es perfecto para el clima frío pero hermoso que estábamos teniendo en VA, me encanta cómo lo chaqueta de cuero añade un poco de ventaja a la mirada, mientras que los botines de tobillo con tacón de Sam Edelman y los pendientes de declaración visten la mirada un poco. A pesar de que sólo usé esto para ir a clase, este look puede trabajar fácilmente para todos los días, una sita casual o incluso una noche con tus chicas. haciendo de esta una de esas miradas perfectas para casi cualquier ocasión manteniendo tu estilo y comodidad!!

New Found Love

I have finally found a pair of high waisted jeans that are actually high enough! 
It is safe to say that I have a never ending love with anything that is high-waisted, which brings me to these high waisted jeans (more like jeggings, to be a specific lol) from Express. I love how fitted they are yet I'm still comfortable enough to move around in them. I decided to pair them with a thin cranberry color sweater from H&M and these Franco Sarto ankle booties, another great #fabfound from Marshalls! Although I wish I had a purse to match my shoes a little better, I ended up going with this little white cross body one instead and tided it together by adding the white spiked necklace from Charlotte Russe. What do you guys think of this look? I ended up really loving the way it turned out! are you a fan (more like obsessed lol) of high waisted bottoms like me or are you against them??

Por fin he encontrado un par de pantalones jeans de talla alta que en realidad son lo suficientemente altos!
Es seguro decir que tengo un amor que nunca termina con cosas de talla alta, lo que me lleva a estos pantalones (más como jeggings, para ser un poco mas específica lol) de Express. Me encanta cómo quedan bien ajustados sin embargo, son todavía lo suficientemente cómodos para moverme en ellos. Decidí combinarlos con un suéter fino de color rojo de H&M y estos botines de tobillo de Franco Sarto, otro gran #fabfound de Marshalls! Aunque me gustaría tener un bolso que coincida con mis zapatos un poco mejor, terminé usando este blanco pequeño y añadí este collar blanco de Charlotte Russe. ¿Qué piensan ustedes de este look? realmente me gusto mucho la forma en que resultó! ¿eres un fan (más como obsesion lol) de los pantalones de talla alta o estas en contra de ellos??

I promise to get back into posting more often!
