Spikes, Studs & Lace

Outfit Details:
Dark Denim Top & Lace Skirt - Zara
Stripe Top - H&M
Studded Tote - R&eM (would love these , but also loving this & this)
Conceited Flats - Bakers (get it here)
Cat Eye Sunnies - Mango

My awesome friend Cathy took some quick photos while on lunch today.  This is what I wore to work, very casual but with some pumps this outfit can be ready for happy hour! But I wanted to show you all my lovely and dangerous Conceited flats.  I fell in love when I first saw these flats online about two weeks ago.  Since, I have been trying to save money, emphasize TRYING..I wanted to make sure that I really wanted them and waited until yesterday to finally make that purchase! I have been doing this lately because my closet is filled and need to get rid of a bunch of stuff. It can be difficult, but what I've learned and REALLY need to go by, are some of these rules:

1. Would I wear it now?
2. Have I worn in the last 4 months?
3. Do I love it?
4. Do I have anything to wear it with?

If I can't answer to any of these four, then it means it's probably time to let it go, sell or donate it.

I Threw A Wish In The Well

Outfit Details:
Jacket - H&M
Polka Dot Tank - Forever 21
Ombre Shorts - Target (Thrifted!)
Shoes - Seychelles
Sunnies - Michael Kors
Bag - JCPenney

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Borrowed my friend’s camera to take these shots, and really love her T2i Canon.  Still have a lot to learn about these DSLR and which to invest in because I don’t want to have to keep upgrading every two years.  Anyone care to give me their opinion on which DSLR to buy?

It’s only Monday but I can’t wait for the weekend already! Very sad, but true.  Either I need a new job, or its time to just have a part-time.  But for now, just need to push through and pay the bills! Well, here I am with one of my polka dot collection and looking like a biker chic..haha!  I always feel like a bad ass with this jacket on! 

I know mostly everyone knows the song by Carly Rae Jepsen right? Call me, maybe. Well, my daughter loves this song and it gets me every time I hear it.  Crazy to like a little girl music, but what do you know it made on mainstream!

Happy Monday! It's been a while since I last posted, been busy and having camera issues and can't wait to invest in a new one.  The weather has been so weird where I live, one day it's nice and warm, the next foggy.  If I could wake up to a beautiful sun every morning, I would wake up happy! 

Lately I have been driving about 20 minutes away just to get to a place with the weather that I love the most..which is around 70 degrees and nothing more please! I tend to get cranky when it hit's 90 and up! Do any of you feel the same? If not, then I guess I'm a weird! 

Well, off to explore your blogs and get inspirations!

Rock Steady

Outfit Details:
Lace Dress - Nasty Gal (loving the maxi version here)
Cropped Denim Vest - Forever 21
Watch - Michael Kors
Sunnies - Armani Exchange

These were taken a while back just didn't have time to post.  I have been meaning to wear this very delicate lacey dress last year but never did.  I just felt like it should be worn on certain events because it was so fancy. But one sunny day, decided to pull it out even though I wasn't going to any event. By dressing down with some boots, made it seem okay to wear to this lovely park.  A lot of people seemed pleased to see this dress as I received many compliments! Which was a little shocker since I didn't make any effort, I just wanted to throw something on and be comfy. 

Anyway, how I wish the weather was like this everyday, but that's wishful thinking.  Happy Monday!

This was taken over the weekend when the weather was quite gorgeous.  It was sunny with  little breeze.  Today we have rain in the bay, which I don’t mind at all.  I love when it rains here and there, I kind of wish I ordered this cute umbrella last week though! 

So I decided to change my shoes because I decided to walk around since it was a lovely day.  These flats are one of my favorites because they really have such great soles in them.  I also love one of my newly purchased Crown Vintage wedges.  I bought about four pairs from this brand in one month! Yes, I need to stop and I will..hoping!  

Well, hope you all are having a great day! I leave with a friendship quote since it is one of my oldest closest friend's (we go way back)!

Floral Skirt & Vest - Forever 21 (skirt get it here)
Boots - Journey's
Watch - Michael Kors

How was your weekend? I’m sure everyone wore their pretty pastels! I wanted to wear all of mine for sure!  But, decided on wearing my pastel green maxi dress with a blazer.  My mini-me had the cutest dress and sandals ever which I might post later.

Well, here is my OOTD.  The first time I saw this black and white floral skirt online I knew I had to order and it came really fast! Thanks to the fast online shippers at!  But I didn’t stop just buying online, I went to our store in SF and bought even more stuff! *sigh* I know I can’t deny, I am an addict to Forever 21.  I can’t help it, they have so much sheer and romantic pieces! Rory Beca has such a cute line! One of which has watercolor prints.  They ran out of the romper but I grabbed the tank. Which I can’t wait to wear and share with you all!

Have a blessed day!

Behind The Beautiful Forevers

Outfit Details:
Cropped Jacket & Cardigan – Forever 21 (old)
Horse Sweater – H&M (super sale $5!)
Pants – Zara (last season)
Boots – Rampage (very old)
Watch – Michael Kors
Bracelet - Juicy Couture

Here I am in one of my favorite places in the East Bay is called Heather Farms, where they have this amazing garden area filled with bed of flowers.  A bunch of weddings happens in this serene vicinity throughout the year, and I don’t blame them.  It is the perfect spot for picture taking.  As you can see the gorgeous cherry blossom behind me is one of the reasons I come here and it has a huge playground for my mini me which she absolutely loves!

As for my very first horse sweater, I found him in the kid’s section of H&M, I knew it was a horse sweater from a glance band grabbed it right away without looking at the size or price, I was in a rush.  When I got home, I looked at my receipt and to my surprise I got this baby for only $5 bucks!  It fit perfectly and became my favorite sweater for the weekend, along with pumpkin colored pants from Zara.  My mini-me asked me why I didn’t get her one.  I would have since I love matching with her, but it was the last one.

I wish the path behind me led to the beautiful forevers!

Happy Hump Day!!
