4th of July Down South

Spent 4th of July weekend in El Paso, TX this year with my pop's side of the fam. Although fireworks were banned this year, I had an amazing time. What can I say?! My familia rocks.

My oh so fashionable cousin, Effiey, made sure I was always out and about. Never a dull moment with him. (Miss you already, Preemeez!) In between all the family cook-outs and the night outings to local bars and clubs, we saved an afternoon to head south of the border into Juarez, Mexico, also known as J-Town amongst the El Paso-ans.

For anyone that's ever crossed a land border into Mexico, you'll know what I mean when I say it feels like you enter into a different world. Without getting into too much detail,  I'm happy to say it's gotten a lot better within the past year or so. Thumbs up to that!

Check out my weather appropriate outfit:

Top - H&M
Shorts - Gift
Booties - Steve Madden

And yes, it was scorching hot out there, but I knew exactly what I was getting myself into when I decided to visit El Paso (the desert) in the summer. Nothing but love!

Here's one more. My preemeez and I on Friday night.

Feelin' Foxy

I have been lusting over Jeffrey Campbell’s black Foxy’s for a long time now. A few weeks ago, I was finally able to find a pair in my size at Nordstroms. They were the last size 5 at their warehouse. Meant to be?... I think so!

Here are some pics of how I wore them last week while hanging out with my sister, Stephanie.

What I'm wearing:

Top: American Apparel
Flannel: Forever21
Shorts and Sunglasses: Moss & Rock
Platforms: Jeffrey Campbell

Todo Negro

Wore this outfit earlier this week for my brother-in-law's birthday dinner. I couldn't decide on what to wear, so I went with my favorite color combo, all black errthang.

Thanks to the bff, Ale, my search for the perfect high-waisted leather shorts has ended. (Thanks again, querida! I love them!) You will definitely see me rocking these shorts pretty often this summer. I paired them with my drifter tank and my new pumps.

Flores de mayo

So much fun hanging out with the Flores family this past weekend- Daisy, Rudy, Alessandra and co. We got together at Rudy's parents' house for some delicious Mexican food in honor of cinco de mayo. I just have to say that Rudy's dad makes THE BEST tacos al pastor.  I def ate more than any human being should ever eat, but when it comes to bomb tacos, you go hard or go home.  That's the rule.

Alessandra wore the most adorable, hand-made, traditional, Mexican dress. She was the cutest, little Adelita ever! Unfortunately, I didn't have a Mexican folklorico dress to rock, but I did wear my new favorite floral shorts that I paired with a white top and my booties.

Top and shorts: Forever 21
Booties: Steve Madden
Sunglasses: Rayban

Hope you all had a beautiful cinco de mayo weekend. Xoxo!

con amor,

Leopard and Stripes

Snapped some quick pics of my outfit yesterday during lunch. I don’t always get to dress this casual to work, but since my boss was on vay-cay, I took full advantage and wore something comfy. I went for the laid-back/ cute look since I had a lunch date with one of my fav pals.

I kinda borrowed this leopard scarf from my sister without asking (Sorry, Wendy!) but I just had to! She wasn't around and the leopard print was just what I needed to give my otherwise boring outfit the perfect boost.

What I'm wearing:

top and scarf: Nordstroms
leggings: JBrand
wedges: Steve Madden
purse: MMS
sunglasses: Ray Ban
