Coco Before Chanel

What She's Wearing
Coco Made Me Poor Top: G Stage (Here)
Pleated Pink Shorts: Forever 21 Plus Size (Here)
Moto Faux Leather Jacket: H&M (Similar Here)
Multi Strap Pump: Call It Spring (On Sale Here)
 

 
 Since spring is in full effect I wanted to play around with some color. Everywhere I went that day, I received compliments on my bright colored shorts which I recently bought at Forever 21 in the plus size department. It’s personally really hard for me to find this kind of material that fits me because I am considered “Plus Size”…I’ve truly learned to embrace that! Bright colored shorts are huge for the spring and summer and can be worn during the day for running errands and at night for some drinks with friends. I decided to do a black and white scheme so the shorts would pop more. Never be afraid to add some color to your normal everyday life. Last but not least the shoes are just to die for! They’re from Call It Spring and are currently on sale!!!!!

Coachella Festival

 
Coachella is right around the corner and every year it’s always fun to see the style and creativity people come up with considering the music festival is in the middle of the desert. We haven’t been so lucky yet to attend because we can never get tickets, they sell out ridiculously fast!
 What She's Wearing
Sunflower Dress: G Stage (Similar HereHere)
 Black High Low Long Cardigan: H&M (Similar Here)
Gladiator Sandals: DSW Shoes (Here)
Fringe Purse: Thrift Find (Similar Here
Cat Eye Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters ( Similar Here)
 What He's Wearing
Denim Button Up: H&M (Here)
White Tee: Hanes (Here)
Black Skinny Jeans: H&M (Similar Here)
White Shoes: VANS (Here)
Black Original Wayfarer: Ray Ban (Similar Here)
Since we cant go, we thought we would bring you all a little outfit inspirations.  The latest trend right now are loose fitting dresses and a splash of hippie. I’m personally loving the boho trend because its simple and it looks so chic and effortless. Another huge trend that I had to throw in are these conformable and trendy gladiator sandals. Remember, it’s a festival and you will be standing most of the day. That is also why I decided to throw my hair up in a bun, use a cross body fringe bag, and NO accessories.  I would also do minimum makeup and please ladies and gentlemen APPLY SUNCREEN!!!!
 
As for the men, I decided to keep it simple as well. The only thing I would change about this outfit are the shoes because wearing white shoes would probably be the worst thing to do. A white simple tee over a denim button up gives a dressy feel to it but also casual and can be worn throughout the whole day and night. No outfit changes needed.
We will be living vicariously through you and we hope you enjoy yourselves. Be safe and party hard!!!! We can’t wait to see all of your Instagram posts!

Spring Fever

Spring has to be my favorite time of the year because it’s time to bring out the light coats and blazers and put away all the winter attire. For this look I decided to keep it simple and  let the romper do all the work.
 What She's Wearing
Floral Romper: Forever 21 (Here)
White Blazer: H&M (Similar Here)
Nude Platform Heels: Charlotte Russe (Similar Here)
Gold Rings: H&M (Similar Here)
Jeweled Earrings: Similar Here
One of the things I most miss about the spring and summer is my tan. I tend to get lighter and have to switch up my makeup foundation. I have recently upgraded my foundation to MAC Studio fix with SPF 15 in the color NC40. I will admit when I went to esthetic school, I wasn’t the best makeup artist and have been  practicing my skills lately.  I told myself I needed to spice things up a bit so I went out and bought some new makeup!
For my eyes I used the Urban Decay eye shadow primer potion (I also put some on my eyebrows since I fill them in with a gel from Elf). I also used the original naked pallet from Urban Decay because it’s easy to use and the pigments are so simple. For my cheeks I used Orgasm by NARS and for my lips I did the Wet n Wild Think Pink. Wet n Wild has great colors for very inexpensive prices. For a longer last I usually set it with a translucent powder.
On to the rings, I have had a lot of girls asking me where I got the rings and the answer is H&M!!! They were selling them in a pack for $6 and I scored some in gold and silver.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are all getting a nice start to your Spring.

Lady in Red

I usually wear red as a pop of color. A bold signature red lip is usually my go to but this time I wanted to switch it up. I don’t understand why but my eyes usually refer the color red to Valentine’s Day or Christmas, am I the only one? I think I liked this dress because that’s not what came to my head when I saw it on display.  I instantly thought it would go great with a leather jacket, jean vest, or dressed up with jewels and accessories. 
 
What She's Wearing
Red Maxi Dress: H&M (Similar Here)
Accessories: Forever 21 & H&M
Head Chain: Down Town LA (Buy Here or Here with my 10% off promo code: KBT10)
 
I decided to have a little fun with this number from H&M by pairing it with a head chain for a more playful look. The great thing with this dress is that it can easily be dressed up or down.
 
The head chain is such a fun accessory also seen on Nicole Richie and other famous style icons. There are some that are dainty and look very boho chic and there are some that are very dramatic. For the summer we will be seeing more head chains and flower crowns, it will definitely be the cherry on top of a cute outfit!  Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, first we need to get through Spring!

Lost Without You

 
Love is definitely in the air today but for us its everyday…well mostly everyday! Let’s be honest, we’re only human and nothing is perfect in life. One thing is for sure, when we love, we love hard. We have had our fair share of ups and downs and sometimes barely make it out of a storm. Our long time friendship, respect, and love has kept us together for 7 years and still going strong.
 
This time we really wanted to shoot together because it is rare when we get the chance. Blogging has been like our baby, we work together as a team to nurture it and we spend time together taking pictures and creating ideas. We will admit, it has taught us a lot about each other. That’s the most interesting part of all this. When you’re in love or in a relationship, you never stop growing and learning from each other.

We are still very playful with each other and we still make an effort to stay interested in each other. We would have to say the key to a long lasting relationship is friendship, trust, and laughter…after all we did meet each other in a bouncy house!
There’s always those great parts in a relationship when one already knows what the other is thinking, when you walk out of the house in the same outfit, or just as simple as being able to be yourself without being scared. Relationships are work but in the long run, at the end of the day, being happy is all that matters. 

Happy Valentine's Day!

XOXO

This Valentine’s Day is on a Friday and I wanted to show you all how to style one dress with two completely different outfits. As I mentioned in our last post, this dress is very versatile and can be worn in so many ways. For my second V Day outfit I wanted to dress up more for a dinner outing or a night out with some girlfriends.
 
Floral Dress: G Stage (Similar Here)
Burgundy Fringe Clutch: Target (Here)
Nude Pumps: Forever 21 (Similar Here)
By simply adding a clutch and some nude pumps this dress is automatically transformed. I would also change up the lip color or add some simple eye shadow.  
Valentine’s Day is much more than romance, flowers, and gift exchanging, I believe it’s more about the people around you that you love such as family and close friends. It doesn’t have to be about boyfriends/ girlfriends and the cliché romance. I am lucky enough to have an amazing man in my life and supportive family. We should show our loved ones everyday how much we love them, not just on holidays.
We would love to know what your plans are this Valentine’s Day, feel free to comment below!

Crazy in Love

SURPRISE...I have bangs now! A girl needs change once in a while. Don’t be afraid to comment below and tell me what you think. Okay, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and personally I always have a hard time figuring out what to wear. Yes we can go for the girly and flirty look but why do what everyone else is doing? I decided to switch it up this year and do something a little different for you all. I wanted to wear a floral dress but wanted to keep it chic and edgy. What better way than to add some leather into the mix!
Floral Dress: G Stage (Similar Here)
Faux Leather Jacket: H&M (Similar Here)
Stay Social Black Heels: Lola Shoetique (Here)
Black Bag: H&M (Similar Here)
I have been seeing celebrities like Kim K wearing similar styles to these amazing booties from Lola Shoetique. As a matter of fact they reminded me of some beautiful Jimmy Choo’s but without the price tag! I honestly felt really chic and still girly wearing the heels with a floral dress. Later I will show you a different way you can style this dress from G Stage.
I wanted to let you all in on some tips I have for shopping. A secret I have for shopping and buying clothes is buying pieces that you can style in different ways.  I will confess now, I have worn this dress 5 times already since I purchased it because this style dress and print is versatile. The dress cost only $12 at G Stage and it’s flattering and trendy. Another secret I have is not buying right away, go home and sleep on it, if you still want it the next day… go buy it!

Make sure to check back next week to see a sexier and simpler way we can style this dress for Valentine’s Day.
