waiting for April Shower

For reals... April is nearly over and we haven't had much rain. I guess it's okay rather than getting too much of it and that would mean a flood for me. So I thank GOD just the same.  While i sit here steaming cause it is rather HOT, I thought I'd share my outfit of the day.

I'm wearing a couple of DIYs. My crochet and yoyo flower necklace and my zipper bracelets. I haven't actually done a DIY on my necklace cause it is somewhat more complicated but I do have one for my zipper bracelets that you can checck out. ;D They are great alone or stacked with other bracelets. 

So the sun has been ruling the skies lately and under the shades of a tree is always the best way to stay cool. So this in our mini mango tree that's yet to bear fruits but I can wait. It is what I'm good at.

I'm also wearing two of my favorite go to items. My Gap white scooped neck T-shirt and sailor pants inspired shorts. Lastly, my alegria sandals in zebra print just to let the animal out in me and may I add that it is as good as walking on barefoot. :D

Thanks for dropping by and please leave a comment cause it's always a nice surprise and I will most definitely reply back. 

Hoping everyone a spectacular week!

my summer color block

Summer is on! Its been steaming hot lately. I feel like my brain is roasting in my skull and it is my only excuse for not posting lately. So to make it up, here is my summer color blocking. From my DIY pink tassel earrings, violet sun dress and blue cropped vest. Decided to wear a nude color wedge to not over do the color blocking.

Now I know I said it's steaming hot so why am i wearing a cropped vest?  I get cold real easily and this is just my option in case I end up at the local or anywhere else that I might need it.

I tried doing one of those sock buns and this was the result, not too bad but I will work on it to tweak the style a bit more. 

so here is the thing... the cropped vest was cut off from what is pictured above. its just way too hot to wear a full vest so the best solution was to cut it in half and wear it cropped. The bottom half is the original color, I just dyed it blue because it had blue stains on the back. doesn't show up to much but it is actually ombre with a lighter blue shade on the shoulder area and darker blue towards the chest area.
What  I'm wearing:
Sock bun for the hair
DIY tassel Earrings 
violet sun dress from Landmark Trinoma
 American eagle outfitter platform wedges

Thanks for stopping by, looking forward to all your comments!
Hope everyone is having a good week so far!!!

Welcome Little Eli

April 13, 2012, a Friday, we took home a cute little chihuahua! Please welcome the new addition to our family...


We tried out a DIY sock turned chihuahua wear with a Halloween inspired design. It was a lost sole, ( we seemed to have lost the other pair) so it was destined for chihuahua fashion. Looks like someone is ready for Halloween right? 

Thank you for stopping by. Have a nice weekend everyone!

Mixing It Up

Mixing prints is really not my thing but trying new things this season is one of my goals. A lot of girls and even some guys can get a way with it and I can totally appreciate the look but I really don't know... going with the same colors helped me cross the line with my striped top and floral print skorts but I'm not quite convinced. what do you think about mixing prints?


What I'm wearing:
DIY tassel earrings in two toned red
DIY zipper bracelet
venus cut striped top
skorts from Contempo Casuals from ages ago
Charles and Keith wedges

Bobbie Nail Po in red
Meiya Nail Art in silver (moon of the nails)

Hope everyone is having a safe and Solemn Good Friday.
