Mommy and Me- Winter Boots Round Up

It’s time for a Winter Boots Round up. I teamed up with Koolaburra by Ugg for some Instagram shares with these new boots, but we had SO many lovely Mommy and Me photos with Ella that I decided to do a full blog post as well! Shop Our Looks:       There’s nothing better […]

Cozy Winter with VIPme

Staying cozy this year has become serious business for those living the NW. This has been one of the worst winters we’ve faced in about 8 years. During the first ice storm Ella and I were stranded 2-miles from home and had to walk home in the snow. So this mama is taking cozy to a whole […]

THE Spring 2016 Trend You HAVE to Try

With Spring just a month away, it’s time to start thinking ahead toward sunshine, lighter palettes and must-have pieces for your closet. Say hello to your new best friend (or at least drinking buddy): The Turtleneck. I adore wider necklines in light colors so that my hair pops off the neckline and instead of stealing length, […]

Eva Mendes Holiday

What a fabulous era to be a Latina! Growing up with iconic celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba and Eva Mendes, I found myself embracing my curves, olive skin and dark features early on. I have always been proud of my Puerto Rican heritage and am blessed to thrive in a culture that celebrates women of […]

Stripes and Denim

The 70’s train is speeding through our Summer and into Fall! I am in LOVE with all the denim details, cotton fabrics and retro prints. For this retro look, I paired my BDG denim skirt with some playful stripes from PinkBlush. I just discovered PinkBlush online! They not only offer an array of easy to wear pieces, […]

Join the Circus- with Circus by Sam Edelman

One of the most flattering trends- all the way from the 1950’s- has to be the All-body-types A-line skirt! I know short skirts don’t work for everyone, but isn’t wonderful to wear something that naturally accentuates your waist and flows out to create the illusion of hips no matter your shape/size? Spring is HERE fashionista’s!!! And that […]

Bridge and Burn

Bridge and Burn is a Portland-based clothing store that emanates best of Portland’s unique style. Portlanders are very much about a functional lifestyle, but love good quality and classic, utilitarian pieces. They sent me this super comfy T-shirt in black-wash, which I have slipped into several times since. I love the worn in feel of the cotton […]

Ready in Red- Trina Turk

I just watched “Devil Wears Prada” this weekend and was reminded how classic some silhouettes are! Especially when it comes to coats. Throughout the movie, we see Anne Hathaway strut through the streets in a dozen different jackets that I would steal off her body 9 years later! Isn’t that crazy? So a beautiful coat […]

Over-The-Knees for these Boots

When this 90’s trend first came back, I was nervous. I am one of those girls who has a HARD time finding boots that look right on me. A. I am petite (a kinder word for short) and can look swallowed up if they don’t hit just right. B. I am knock-kneed, which means that […]

Cynthia Vincent

I was pretty excited to be interviewed for the Examiner on my Spring Style list. Here’s one of the outfits I put together from Eg Page in Lake Oswego. I pulled this screen print top because of the black and white pattern and the pop of color. The boxy cut gives it a more casual […]
