Eyelet Wrap Top & Woven Round Handle Tote

Top: Anthropologie | Jeans: Nordstrom (sold out, similar here & here) | Bag: Boutique (nearly identical one here) | Sunglasses: Karen Walker (sold out, similar here & here) | Shoes: Forever21 (similar here & here) | Scarf: Anthropologie

I had of lot’s questions about the details of this outfit when I posted it on Instagram last week and I’ve been dying to share it. This wrap top has the prettiest eyelet trim detail all around the neckline and sleeve. I bought it specifically to shoot a sponsored campaign, which by the way you should check out on my Instagram because we’re doing something awesome to help those in need. I needed a lightweight top that is easy to take care of but with lots of pretty detail so I went with this wrap blouse from Anthropologie. I think it was like, 114 degrees the day we shot this and we were outside for quite some time so naturally, the blouse got soaked in my sweat and wrinkled. So glamorous, right? Lol. Anyway, it doesn’t normally wrinkle that easily, it’s super pretty, and perfect for summer—such a good find!

I’m also obsessed with these little kerchief scarves from  Anthropologie. They’re made of cotton (they have silk too but let’s keep our style cruelty-free) and they’re perfect for wrapping up your hair or around your purse like I typically do. Ok, last style obsession for today, these sunglasses. They’re sold out BUT, I linked two very similar pairs from the same designer. Which pair do you like best? I have to go with the gold-rimmed pair, the gold glimmers so beautifully in the sun! I’ve been wearing these non-stop because they go with everything and I love the oversized look!

ICYMI everything I wear and all the products I use are now and always will be vegan.

By the way, I linked some cute bow espadrille shoes that are similar to the ones I’m wearing and the linked options are made of vegan leather. In case you don’t watch my Instagram stories, I decided a while back to eliminate all animal products from my life. This includes shoes, handbags, and accessories that are made with animal products. So now everything I link is 100% vegan and cruelty-free! If you’re curious as to why I went vegan, there’s a post about it and you can read it here.

Ok you guys, today I have a special guest for you all.

Miss Athena Esmeralda joined me for the sponsored shoot we shot right before these pics. She wasn’t supposed to be in these outfits pics but she kept walking over to me, standing right in front of me staring, then asking me to pick her up. Lol, it was so cute. Her nanny Taryn, kept trying to entertain her to get her out of the shot but she just wanted mommy. So I thought I’d include some behind the scenes with Athena today. 🙂 I can’t handle that cute little face!!!

LEATHER-10When in doubt, wear black. I’ve been very eager to wear this Michael Kors leather jacket and it’s finally starting to cool down enough to do so. The soft, supple leather is amazing. I also love the matte-like finish of the leather, it lends a casual and effortlessly cool vibe. These cap toe boots are a favorite of mine even though I’m not a fan of short heels. I typically opt for a heel above 5 inches but the cap toe on these had me sold. I’m thinking about parting ways with them though, I really need a higher heel.

Piel

Si no sabes que ponerte, vistete de negro. He estado muy entusiasmada para usar esta chaqueta de cuero de Michael Kors. Finalmente ha empezado a enfriar lo suficiente como para usar la. La piel de esta chaqueta esta super suave y es increíble.  También me encanta el acabado mate de esta chaqueta, que le da una apparencia casual y cool. Estas botas con punta de capa son una de mis favoritas, aunque no me gustan los tacones cortos. Típicamente  optó por un tacón  de 5 pulgadas o mas, pero la punta de estas botas me encantaron. Estoy pensando en despedirme de estas botas. Lo que me recuerda, ¿sabían ustedes que puede comprar articulos en mi armario de Poshmark?

R & R

In celebration of the boyfriend’s birthday we are going on a cruise! It’s a great way to forget how old you’re getting, haha. On a more serious note, I have not packed a thing and we leave in a few hours. I did however, prepare myself by making this pretty packing visual “list”! These are my staple pieces I am definitely bringing. Why is there a cardigan, a shrug and a long sleeve top you ask? Great question! You can put your hand down now. Weather forecasts tend to be unreliable and I’m really counting on that because I’m seeing cloudy skies and rain for almost the entire trip! We’re going to Mexico by the way, why is the sun on vacation this week?! For this reason, I prepared light tops that I can layer over a dress or wear with pants and other basic pieces in case it gets a little too cool.

Gray Cardigan: Iris & Ink 
Chevron Stripe Dress: Hive & Honey
Over-sized Black Sunglasses: Fendi
Black Glitter Sandals: MICHAEL Michael Kors
Cross Front Shrug: ALLSAINTS
Tunic Top: Trouve
Tie Dye Maxi Dress: Red Haute
Hobo Bag: Furla
Parfum: Lolita Lempicka
Crepe Pant: James Perse
Silver Sandal: Prada
Blue Sunglasses: Pucci
Extra Wide Brim Hat: San Diego Hat Coompany

Two more things I have to mention. There was no paid advertisement, trust me. I just loooooooove these two particular items. First is the Furla hobo handbag. This one is almost identical to one I bought a few years back on my first trip to Paris. It was the one and only souvenir I brought home. A few years later and it’s still spectacular and looks exactly the same even though I use it nearly every single day. The quality, of course, is superb. It’s simple but luxe. The one I listed however has a second strap so it can be worn cross-body which is fantastic and super useful when traveling. I may just add this one to my collection just because of that extra strap! Lastly, I have to rave about the extra wide brim hats by San Diego Hat Company. They are so beautiful and fit perfectly in any beach or poolside setting. These in particular are really wide and oh so well made; if you’re only going to buy one sun hat this summer, make sure it’s this one.
