Black and blue

What is it about a good pair of black jeans that just gives a girl all the confidence in the world? I sure as hell feel like a million bucks when I put mine on, even if I am wearing sneaks or sandals with them and, when the fit is right, you better believe I will strut my little heart out in them. I decided to pair these (similar below) with the oldest plaid shirt in the history of plaid shirts (ok, maybe not the history of plaid shirts..geez!) but, it’s old (similar below) because plaid shirts are making a huge comeback (as if they ever left, duh) and you’ll be sure to see them everywhere. You’ve seen me rocking this black vest before and I am so glad I purchased it a while back because I have truly gotten so much mileage out of it. It’s funny because it seems very lightweight but it does a great job in complementing sweaters for keeping warm in windy and colder days. I call that a win! And finally, I decided to add a satchel (which my husband gifted me for Valentine’s Day…awww babe you shouldn’t have ha!) and am so glad he chose this style because it’s super roomy -literally everything fits in this thing- and I’m kinda over cross-body bags right now. This one is very lady-like and I love it!

 

‘Til next time, guys…

Denim skirt

Well, it’s back to warm weather down here in Orlando, Fl. and I am gearing up for spring. I have put away most of my warm clothes (of which I barely used, but oh well) and am enjoying wearing a bit more color and bright clothing these days. Well, I am really into citrus colors lately and seriously love how an orange, lemon-y yellow or lime green look against denim. So when I found this skirt  I instantly thought of pairing it with any of the aforementioned colors. I’m loving the “old-school”vibe this skirt has, so 70’s (I may or may not be uh-bsessed with that era) and it just makes me think of Jane Fonda and Candice Bergen circa 1970’s.  I’m loving how these vibes are coming back (especially high waisted, belted skirts) because they are so chic and, in my opinion, do a great job in showcasing a woman’s figure in the most feminine way. And of course, it’s denim, which can be paired with virtually ANYTHING and everything and you will do no wrong.

Hope you guys have an amazing and fashionable week!

Xoxo,

Raquel

So I had another post scheduled for this week but had to post this one because it was just the best Valentine’s day surprise for me and Lucas from daddy. We went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and had the best day ever, just the three of us…and a couple thousand other people ha! But that’s beside the point. It was such a lovely day (nice and cool) and I had originally picked out something else to wear that day thinking we’d probably go to dinner like we usually do, but I had gotten this top  from Target in a couple of colors and this blush pink one was just the perfect color for Valentine’s Day.

I decided to use it as a layering shell because I just feel that wearing it by itself was just too plain (I always need to pile on stuff or layer…I can’t help it). So I decided on this Zara top (old, similar below) just because the combo of the colors is so romantic. I’m so into blush, olive and camel it’s cray!  I like this particular shirt because the material feels nice and light so I wasn’t sweating like a hog with all the walking around we did. To offset all the “girliness”, I went with ripped jeans and obviously sneakers because walking around in heels at a theme park is = not cute.

How did you guys spend your Valentine’s Day? Share below!

Xoxo,

Raquel

Who What Wear

Ok, guys here is what I will be wearing for Valentine’s Day. To hell with red and pink. The Who What Wear ladies launched their most anticipated collection at Tarjay (I will not stop calling it that so there…) and I have gone buck wild purchasing almost everything in the collection. It is the chicest, most effortless collection/collaboration to hit these stores to date (in my humble opinion).

So this top: my God this top! Anywhere else you would be paying $50-$60 for something similar but the price is just right.The color, the print is just so fresh and elegant. Dress it up. dress it down..you can do no wrong. You can see that that the colors blend so well with both black and brown and I love that because to me black and brown together is just about the chicest color combos ever so this top just adds a pop with the blues and yellows. These ladies have hit a home a run with this collection and I can’t wait to style all the other pieces I got. I’m linking a few of their stuff below.

So, move over red and pink for Valentine’s day…I’ll be busy being fabulous in other, more interesting colors that day!

Xoxo,

Raquel

Ok, I dunno guys, I’m not even gonna try and hide it: you’re gonna see me rockin’ menswear occasionally. I’ve always had a penchant for it so get used to it.

That being said: the other day I was over at Tarjay (ok, Target, jeez!) and was *ahem* accompanying my husband in the men’s department ’cause you know the poor soul asked me to help him pick out a new hoodie..”ugh, ok babe…i’ll help ya out”. But of course, ya’ll know me. My little wondering eye hovered over to this delightful little rack that was marked with a “50% off” sign and well..whatdaya know? The cutest, friggin’ sweatshirts in the cutest friggin’ colors….ON SALE! Hot damn, you know a girl can’t pass these things up. You know this!!

Listen, this is one piece you can serioulsy do so much with. I honestly like men’s better because the fit is looser and I can style it with just about anything. I decided on a brocade skirt (old, similar below) and high tops (old, similar below) because the juxtaposition of them together reminds me of my college years- yes, it’s been a while. The great thing is sweatshirts are really having a moment so get yours and get creative.

Xoxo,

Raquel
