The perks of a Salvi boyfriend… BOMB FOOD😋 Have a Blessed Sunday Lovies!!!😘
Before I begin this post, I would like to take the time to wish all the wonderful daddy’s in the world a very HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! May God continue to bless your handwork & LOVE. You deserve your hearts desires and I truly wish you all the greatest of blessings. To my very own dad, all I can say is THANK YOU for stepping up when you had the choice of walking out. You’re a GREAT BLESSING and I am forever thankful for letting me have someone to call DAD! I LOVE YOU.
…Now, for today. Just a quick & casual fit for a day out with my baby king (boyfriend). We made a stop at our favorite Sushi restaurant and then headed out for some last minute shopping for OUR very own papis. Hope you guys like the look…comfy but with attitude. You know me, always have to make some sort of statement ;) XOxo -M

Happy Sunday lovelies!!! Today I woke up early to get a few home chores out of the way and as soon as all that was done, I was able to get started on my favorite part of the day…getting ready! For today, I felt like embracing my femininity and looking dressy. After all, I was going to attend mass at noon and then head out for a sushi/movie date with my beau. Let me briefly say that, if I had to choose a specific style to wear for the rest of my life, it would have to be one that’s very feminine and classy. You know, flared dresses, button up tops with skirts and high waisted dressy shorts. Definitely very “Jackie Kennedy” and “A la Hepburn”. Hence, my inspirations for today…but of course, with a modern twist. Anyway, kept my look very classy but young with this vibrant orangy top. Which by the way, i’m obsessing over thanks to the bows in the back. Paired it with this white skirt with an almost 3D print, if that makes sense. To finish off the look, I added this patent leather belt to compliment my shoes and wore very minimum jewelry in gold to bring out the orange color more. Hope you guys like my look! Simplicity at it’s finest! :) Blessings! XOXO -M

Who said Army print couldn’t be SEXXXY?! Today was another day off from work and due to very little days off, I had some pending errands to run. So, thanks to this very HOT Cali weather, I was FINALLY able to pull out this Army backless maxi dress that I’ve had stored in my closet for months since it’s purchase. I kid you not, I was beyond comfortable in this ensemble all day. Definitely made me yearn for Summer 2013. I paired this dress with a denim vest to avoid being too exposed at the DMV and my chiropractor visit…but once those errands where done, that baby came off to spend a date-out with my love at Yardhouse in the Valley heat :p (NOTICE: I apologize for the poor quality pictures in advance. I forgot my camera so we improvised with an iPhone 4. I owe you guys!) Anyway, hope you guys had a lovely day. Blessings. XO-M

I’ve been so M.I.A. on my outfits of the day but it’s not because I have ran out of clothes…OH NO! If anything, I have more. To my defense, I either come home EXHAUSTED from work that I knock out instantly or I just haven’t had anyone do me the favor of shooting me :( I seriously need to invest in a tripod to go out & shoot myself (as loner as that sounds). HAHA Anyway, just wanted to share the outfit that I wore this past Saturday to a birthday party with my boyfriend’s family. Personally, I hadn’t had the chance to try out color blocking with neons, a trend that at this point is so last summer, but HEY! It’s never too late. I had a lot of fun styling this very fun, summery yet so chic look. I was going for a very casual look because I did have to work prior to the party and since, the party was a children’s birthday party, I definitely wanted to wear something I could easily move around in without neglecting my femininity. I must say, I am very happy with my combo. I felt like I could brighten up anyone’s day with my fit :) Hope you guys like and as for posts, I will try to be more consistent. Blessings. XO-M

My days off usually consist of catching up on house chores, spending time with my dog, hanging out with my boyfriend and if I’m lucky, squeezing in a little “me” time. For today, the boyfriend & I had plans to visit “The Getty Center”. It was my first time there and I enjoyed every minute of it. Took over a dozen pictures and overall, enjoyed some much needed quality time with my baby, exploring the exhibits & gardens. So for today’s outfit of the day, I was inspired by “Skater dresses”. I didn’t wear a dress but it definitely looked like it. I wore my new favorite custom made top of me in my favorite Jordans ever…EVER!!! Hope you guys like this little ensemble. Night night lovies. XO-M

As some of you may or may not know, one of the latest trending styles here in the L.A. Fashion District is the garter piece. The most popular ones have been garter leggings. I happen to like them BUT, not for myself because I feel naked… Like my tiny booty is about to pop out. ..But don’t get me wrong, I have loved the way other girls have worn & styled it. Anyway, when I saw this dress, I absolutely liked it because I didn’t feel like I was exposing a lot and the garter piece just gave it that sexy edge. I was even more drawn to the dress because of the color…WOW! Its such a perfect neon pink and I felt like it complimented my skin tone color. So for today’s fit, I was going for a casual, trendy & sexy look. Paired this dress with combat boots & a light black cardigan. Simple. Simple. SIMPLE!
Tip: If you have a similar dress showing off the mid-section of the body, a denim vest would look GREAT! I didn’t wear anything over because today was such a HOT day in L.A. that I kept it cool. Hope you all had a lovely Saturday :) XO-M

Every morning before getting ready for work or my day, I always check the weather reports. Lucky me, today was supposed to be the hottest day of this week in L.A….and might I add, IT WAS HOT! So for today’s outfit of the day, I wore this dimmed neon-yellow maxi dress that I love so much. Not only because its extremely comfy but also because the peek-a-boo back is just a SEXY touch. Definitely took home with me a lot of compliments and how could I not? This dress is definitely a sexy piece. Anyway, can’t wait to show you tomorrow OOTD. It’s going to be another HOT piece for a HOT day! :) Blessings. XO-M

This past Saturday, my boyfriend and I went to a family birthday party. Nothing fancy, so I went for a casual but still trendy look…(like I haven’t said that already.) The weather was kind of gloomy BUT mind you, I had work prior to the birthday and well, Saturdays are a busy day for me. Which means that I move and walk around a lot so I tend to be hot. Anyway, keeping in mind that it was still gloomy, I brought with me a poncho-style pullover cardigan because I knew I was going to be cold later on that night. Moving on, my outfit was a little inspired by the Coachella craze that happened over the weekend. If I had been able to go, I would have definitely worn this top, paired with a beautiful print maxi skirt. However, because I was at work in the city and later attended the birthday festivity, I paired this top with simple faded blue jeans and my newest absolutely FAV shoes. I swear, these shoes are FAB! I feel like a million dollars in them and they were beyond inexpensive. Hope you guys like! :P Blessings. XO-M

For today, my boyfriend & I had planned to spend our day in Santa Monica to do some window shopping…and even visit Niketown to iD some shoes. Which, if I may add, are going to be pretty sick! We are both VERY excited for our new babies. We definitely can’t wait to shoot them. But anyway, because Santa Monica tends to be pretty chilly and considering all the walking we were about to do, I wanted to dress comfortably….but still in style. So for today’s outfit of the day, I decided to rock my Jordan 1s that I am beyond MADLY in love with. This is a perfect casual sneaker and the colorway is just BAD! Paired my 1s, with my faux leather pants and a racer-back top. To give it an extra touch & to kind of accessorize, I threw on this skull scarf and brought with me a thin cardigan with faux leather pockets just in case it got chilly, since we were by the beach. Lastly, the pink Casio watch was a lovely, unexpected gift given to me by one of my boyfriends’ co-worker/friend. She was so sweet for that gesture and let me just say, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! The color is SO me! Anyway, hope you all had a very lovely Sunday with your loved ones. XO-M

When it comes to shopping for clothes, I’m not a picky shopper. I shop wherever my heart desires. H&M, Forever 21, Downtown L.A. alleys, swapmeets, outlets and my favorite, THRIFT STORES!!! Shopping at local thrift stores is a lot of fun for me. It’s like a treasure hunt. You thrift hop from store to store and if you’re blessed that day, you will find treasures!! Which brings me to my outfit of the day. I found this forest/fern green cardigan a few months back at a local Goodwill in Hollywood for just $3. The moment I eyed the cardigan, I knew I had to own it. The shade of green was such a perfect Spring cardigan color. The detailing was even more perfect with tiny rosy pink flowers knitted decoratively around. It was an instant buy. So for today’s look, with the cardigan as my cute statement piece, I went for a simple “picnic” inspired look. I received lovely compliments at work from customers and even had them asking me where I had purchased my cute grandma sweater :) Best $3 spent!? TOTALLY!!! So please, trust me when I say this, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on clothes, sometimes, a couple bucks is enough. Remember what they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure! XO-M

Today’s look was yet another casual lazy outfit because although I feel a millions times better, I’m still recovering from the flu. Anyway, paired up my latest “new” jeans that my coworker gave to me with this studded Cross tee. I was going for a rockish look therefore I had to incorporate boots. However, to avoid an all black fit, decided to wear this red crossbody bag to match the shade of red on my lips. A very casual, trendy yet comfy look for a nice day out :) Hope you guys like! XO-M

Hello my lovelies! As evident as it is, it’s no longer Easter morning or Easter day (DUH!)…BUT, I decided that I still wanted to blog my church outfit of the day for this past Sunday. My outfit was inspired by Spring’s pastels, flowers, the very essence of innocence & even the biblical meaning of Easter, which is a gift. I’m not referring the egg hunting as THE gift. So allow me to quickly elaborate. Easter, to me, is the greatest gift that God could ever offer. The great gift of HOPE & LOVE. It is Jesus’ resurrection day to bring new joy into our lives. On Easter day, my church is decorated with white flowers and most people wear symbolic colors such as pink, white & purple. Which in all, becomes my inspiration for this outfit. I decided to wear this lovely pink bow top with white pants for a rosy “angelic” look. I accessorized my outfit with this flower pearly chain necklace that I love so much (it belonged to my friend but she was about to toss it to the trash & I saved its life) and wore pearl earrings to. I finished off the look with my FAV camel wedges and to have a matching tone of color, I wore a similar camel color belt. Simple but I was happy with the combo :) Hope you all had a WONDERFUL Easter!!! XO-M

Yesterday’s outfit of the day was my first official Spring look! Definitely went for the typical…PASTELS! What can I say, I like the usual & when it comes to Spring, I think of flowers, light colors and BRIGHT colors, warm sun, breezy grass with bright blue skies…and even fluffy clouds!! *sigh* I feel like I’m describing The Sound of Music when Maria is out in the meadows singing…if you don’t know what I’m talking about, watch “The Sound of Music”. A favorite musical movie of mine! Anyway, before I continue to drift away, hope you guys liked my Sunday church outfit of the day on Palm Sunday. A super comfy look for any relaxing Sundate :) XO-M
