  It’s been a while since I have done a outfit post it feels. The weather here in STL has been up and down lately, so this day in particular when it was sunny outside it also was very windy so I tried what I could but the wind was blowing my big Texas hair everywhere. Fingers crossed this weekend is nicer weather and I can get some more pictures where my hair doesn’t look more crazy than it is. I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Spanish/Español:
Ha sido un buen rato dése que a puesto una entrada en el blog uno de mis looks. La mera verdad es que el clima aqui ha estado un poco loco y unos dias esta bonito pero esta bien frio con el viento. Este dia en particular entente tomar fotos pero el viento era muy fuerte y hizo que mi pelo se mirara mas grande y loco de lo normal! Ojala en estos proximo diasel tiempo este un poco mejor para poder tomar fotos decentes. Espero que todos esten tiendo una bueno semana!

April Showers

April Showers

Spring is surely here and though the flowers and trees are finally starting to bloom (and pollinate everything!), it doesn’t mean we are clear form the occasional April Showers. I don’t know about you, but I struggle to dress in the rain. With time I have learned that a statement necklace, lipstick and tossing a pair of shoes in your bag to wear when you arrive to your destination make quite the difference. Here are a few of my suggestions to hopefully help you dress on those rainy days, while adding a pop of color to add some sunshine to your day!
Spanish/Español:
La Primavera por fin se ve que se va a quedar y los dias de frio son algo del pasado. Pero claro eso no significa que no veremos dias de lluvia y claro esos dias son los mas difíciles para encontrar que ponerte. Aparté de que el dia esta lluvioso y no quieres salir de casa, quien se va a quiere vestir para salir? Yo no y me aseguro que muchos de ustedes tampoco. Pero te tengo la solución, con tiempo yo ha encontrado que una cadena, labial y cargando tus zapatos en tu bolsa envés de tiner los puestos en la lluvia hace toda la diferencia!

ALIVE Magazine STLFW Spring Style Soiree for a Special Cause

11139714_10205678268507487_1781336917_n

 It’s Spring Fashion Week here in St. Louis and last week was our Spring Soiree! ALIVE teamed up with West County Mall to show all the latest trends that can be bought right in their stores. As well as, Siteman Cancer Center to highlight these women who have been cancer free for years. Did I mention that all the proceeds went directly to the Siteman Cancer Center? To help more women like these, so that hopefully one day they too will be holding a number to show how many years they have been cancer free.

I’m very happy to have attended this event, especially because it hit so close to home.

Spanish/Español: Es tiempo para la moda de La Primavera y eso significa que es tiempo para otro desfile en la pasarela que en San. Luis, MO. Esta ves ALIVE no solamente se junto con la mall West County para enseñares la mejor ropa de la moda que puedes compra  en las tiendas pero tambien con Siteman Cancer Center. Siteman Cancer Center es un lugar aqui en San Luis donde mujeres van para recibir tratamiento para cáncer. Y no solamente ayudaron recaudar dinero para ellos pero tambien caminaron por la pasarela las mujeres que han vivido años si cáncer! Cada mujer cambiaba con un numero para címbalos cuantos años llevan sin tiener cáncer.

Porque yo he tiendo gente cerca en mi vida con cáncer, este evento fue significante para mi.

Explore St. Louis Summer Ambassador Search

So excited to announce that I have entered the “Be a Tourist in Your Own Town” contest put together by CVS, KSDK, and ALIVE Magazine! What exactly is it you may ask? It’s a chance for you the people to pick the next ambassador for this summer in St. Louis and this time we are all bloggers who are either from St. Louis or live here. All of us will be showing some love about St. Louis in a short video telling you some of the best places and things we love about this great city and how you can still be a tourist yourself. Even if you have lived here for 3, 10 years or your whole life. I myself have a lot of great memories I have made throughout the years with some amazing folks and though Texas will always be my hometown, I’m proud to call St. Louis my home!

More importantly, St. Louis is where I found my friends who have become my family away from home and the love of my life. So thank you St. Louis for helping me begin the next chapter of my life by being surrounded with some of the most amazing people I have ever met!

Please come vote for me here, you can vote once per day so go crazy and tell your friends and family to help a sister out! :)

Did I mention that the official Explore St. Louis Summer Ambassador will win $1,000 and be announced at the Be A Tourist in Your Own Town Eventon April 30 at Ballpark Village with the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission?! Now, how cool would that be!

Pearls and Pastels

 IMG_7536

Easter is this Sunday which means its time to wear your Sunday best! I do love going to church, seeing everyone’s colorful outfits, then having brunch and spending it with those I love. For the past 4 years I have always spent it with my roomie’s family but this year starts a new tradition for me and that is spending it with Chris and his family. I have to say that the best part about being with your special someone, is the first year were new traditions are started and everything is done for the first time. Even if some traditions may be the same for some, experiencing any holiday with a new family that welcomes you with open arms is always heartwarming and memorable.

So here’s wishing everyone with old or new traditions a very Happy Easter!

Men’s Series: Top 5 Style Websites

Men's Series 2

Yo couch brotatoes – nothing in this life is worse than wasting your sweet time at malls shuffling through racks of “new collection” garbage that you would never wear. We have better things to do like binge on House of Cards, watch some March Madness or download Drake’s new mixtape.

What I’m trying to say here is don’t be that sad soul who wanders aimlessly at Macy’s, J Crew or Target because you had some premonition that you need new clothes. For God’s sake…don’t be that guy who’s girlfriend or MOM buys all his damn clothing. A man knows what he wants and is confident with what he wears.

Spring Cravings

Happy friday everyone!

Spring is in full action which means its time to update the wardrobe. Now I’m not a person who is big on bright colors or floral but I’m starting to get out of my comfort zone and I have to say I’m a fan! So be on the look out for more bright colors and floral prints coming soon.

Spanish/Español:
Feliz viernes!

La Primavera a llegado y eso significa que es tiempo de ponerte colores brillantes y diseños florales. Si me conoces, sabes que yo casi no uso esos dos pero estoy tratando cosas nuevas en mi vida y esto es uno de ellos. Y tengo que decir que estoy encantada! Espera ver mas colores brillantes y diseños florales en el blog esta temporada.
