Basic Festival Bitch

I know this is harsh but it’s true and I’m here to help those girls that don’t want to go as dressed up to festivals and think crop tops and just shorts are going to do. If you think neon colors, pasties, bodysuits, high tops, graphic 90’s tee’s are festival material – you’re half way wrong! Unless you attend Ultra, that’s a whole other story because then that’s some what acceptable.
So I decided to take the basic essentials and dress those up just a tad and make a chic-yet-boho look. Crochet or lace are a must for me… it’s probably the only occasion I can wear those and not to mention this shirt is crochet, off the shoulder, and cropped. Instead of going for high wasted jean shorts, I switched it up and added color by wearing colored shorts. Since this post is mainly for Coachella Weekend 2, day 2 or 3 – I added a floral headband (which is inexpensive and gives it that final touch) that brings the entire outfit together perfectly.

So with this look, I went for camel-colored snake skin print booties, they are totally fab and not to mention Kendall Jenner wore all snake skin booties this year to Coachella! Add some circle sunnies and your going from “basic bitch” to Basically Fab!

See you all next year at Coachella and in your cute outfits,

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I always need help in giving gifts. Reason why today – I have provided a gift guide for the lucky men in our lives and for the women we love so much.
Husbands/Fiance’s/Boyfriends:

raybansWhat better way to show your man some love than with these awesome gifts?

  • Apple TV
  • Sunglasses
  • Watch
  • Wallet
  • iPhone case
  • Go-Pro
  • Shoes
  • Headphones

If you’re not into buying gifts and want to get creative and make your own, here’s a really cute gift to make!

DIY (Jar of Love)

  • Buy a Mason jar
  • Cut out 100 pieces of paper and write on each strip reasons why you love him

 I also filled the bottom of the jar with heart shaped marbles that I purchased from the dollar store to add details.

Once you present them with this thoughtful gift – he has to read one piece of paper each day and relate what he read to you and tell you what he loves about you in return! This builds a bond and makes it a fun and very inexpensive gift.

Sidenote: No clothes as gifts! I’ve learned to stay away from apparel for my boyfriend because we have completely different styles!

Wife’s/Fiance’s/Girlfriends:

Valentines For HerWant your lovely lady to appreciate you? Well, be sure to get her any of these gifts and she will be head over heels over you!

The cherry on top can be the dinner you would like to take her to or cooking for her (this is a must! Lol) Hopefully this helped and guided you in the right direction to purchasing the perfect gift for your loved ones.

Valentine’s Day Outfit #1

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day, and what to wear omg help!!!???

Well, I’m here to make your life a little less hectic, and be a little more helpful. I decided on two outfits for today’s post: my first outfit is a casual/movie date, A pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, but this time they are a little more fitted, rather than the usual loose and baggy fit; I paired these Cotton On jeans with a plain white v- neck, also from Cotton On, which by the way, the material is like wearing clouds literally (lol). To add a bit of sexiness to the outfit, I spiced it up with nude strappy heels, and a matching clutch to give it a night life feel. To make it feel more Valentine’s Day-ish I added a red matte lipstick, and this gorgeous Channel inspired pearl necklace that I love, and it was just under $8.00. Enjoy your Valentine’s Day with whomever it shall be with that special night.

It’s so Miami

Welcome to Miami ✿ Bienvenidos a Miami!

RIV_3857RIV_3882RIV_3871RIV_3864RIV_3898RIV_3959

This outfit was quite easy to put together because it’s literally an everyday outfit here in Miami – especially for me. High-waisted shorts can be found in every girls wardrobe, along with a crop top. And if you feel like you may be showing too much skin, a tank top will work just fine.

Very in style right now are kimonos, they can be found in every color, length and style. They are a great addition to incorporate into an outfit and specifically, this kimono was just perfect because of the vibrant colors and the amount of floral. The detailing on the trims of this kimono are magnificent, and it’s so sheer and light-weight – that on a hot summer day, it’ll be just the right amount of coverage.

Accessories were pretty easy to match, I had the perfect blue necklace for this outfit which made the shirt stand out more and brightened up the blue in the floral pattern of the kimono. I didn’t want to do too much blue, so I decided on a white bracelet that matched the trimming of the kimono. Now on to my favorite accessory: the clutch!!! A Steve Madden royal blue, fringe clutch – to die for! And yet again, it was a bargain for $25 dollars. Jesus, how I love the world of bargain and sale! It’s music to my ears and wallet (lol).

Despite the heat and sweating I put up with (even with all the little clothing I had on!), I survived thanks to the car AC and the frequent breeze that would blow through the palm trees. Still, the weather was beautiful and with Fall slowly approaching, the bold, bright and fun colors are going to slowly start fading into neutrals and over knit sweaters. Since Miami does it’s own thing when it comes to seasons, I’ll be trying to push and enjoy every last bit of summer clothing I can!

Until then, enjoy! Adiós, amores ♡
