faux fur, scarf, jcpenney, all black

Glam

I love that just by throwing on a little faux fur it makes me feel like a 1950's movie star- glamorous like Marilyn Monroe. I'm so ready for my close up.

A faux fur accessory is the easiest way to dress up an outfit. You look luxe, fabulous and it's great for any occasion. It's a cozy accessory for this fall/winter, animal-friendly and chic.

This faux fur scarf from JCPenney elevates this monochromatic outfit. Not only does it add texture but a pop of color. I love the simplicity of the outfit- just a flared scuba skirt, turtle neck, and single strap heels. This outfit is a great look for a dinner or a cocktail party.

Tie Dye

Tie dye is no longer a blast from the past. This print was super groovy in the 60's and 70's. Now, it has come back in a darker tone and not just in t-shirts but in this bodysuit from Shop Love Yourz. This bodysuit hugs the curves just right and has an edgy choker detail- a big trend this season.

Tie dye is usually a print you wear during summer but it can also be a fun print for fall. Distressed shorts and tie dye are the best mix ever- they just work. Of course it's fall so layering is key. Under my shorts I wore black tights and over the knee socks.

Don't you hate when you wear over the knee socks and they keep falling down? I sure do. Fun fact: Wearing tights under your over the knee socks keeps them from slouching. The friction between them keeps them up. I finished this look with chunky booties and retro sunnies. Overall, I felt trendy and sexy in this outfit.

fall jackets, patches, embelish

Patch Up & Camo

Patches are one of falls biggest trends.  They make for a fun DIY project or you can find one with patches already on them like this one from Pink Clubwear.  I love the camo print. This print goes with everything just like polka dots and leopard.

Style Tip: Create a fitted silhouette on a lose dress with a knot on the side.

A camo jacket has become a wardrobe staple. It's casual and comfy. Wear it with jeans, skirts, or like I did with a dress. I chose a little black dress with a lace-up detail and knotted the dress to provide a more fitted shiloutte. I finished the look with taupe booties because taupe compliments a camo print.

JCPenney, Hispanic heritage month

Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, the United States celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15. It's the time that we celebrate and recognize histories, cultures and contributions by Hispanic Americans and our ancestors. It's also the time that many Latin American countries celebrate the anniversary of their independence.

#HispanicHeritageMonth to me means, when all Latinos can unite together and celebrate who we are and inspire one another. My family came from Guatemala and during this month I celebrated Guatemala's Independence Day.  I couldn't be prouder to be a Chapina.

JCPenney honors Hispanic Heritage Month by turning the attention to inspirational Latino men and women. These inspirational people help motivate us to achieve greater things and find our voices. I would like to honor my boyfriend's parents Jose and Amelia this month who have been like a second family to me with a gift from JCPenney. They inspire me every day, they both came from El Salvador and Guatemala with nothing and made it happen. They have worked very hard and now own their own business and home in Pasadena California.

I was very excited to pick out their gifts. I wanted to pick out something that they would enjoy and fit their personalities. Jose loves running. He runs almost every day around the Pasadena Rose Bowl so I thought a sports watch would be perfect. Amelia loves clothes as much as I do. It's getting cold now so I choose a floral print wrap. She can use it as a scarf or a nice layer piece to keep her warm. #SoWorthIt

Sporty Jumpsuit

I've definitely have embraced the sporty trend and I love a good jumpsuit too. When both world's meet you best believe I'm wearing it. This jumpsuit from Pink Clubwear is comfy and casual. I love the side stripe detail on both sides. It kind of reminds me of a 90's Adidas track suit.

This jumpsuit is great by itself worn with some sneakers. I wanted to spice it up a little. I wrapped a plaid shirt around my waist. Is it just me or wrapping a button down shirt is more than just convenience but a fashion statement? I traded in my sneakers for an edgier pair- booties with the perplex heel. 

This outfit has many 90's elements; the side strip detail, the plaid shirt, the choker, and overall sporty trend too. The 90's are here to stay, well at least for little while.

Unfortunately, this jumpsuit sold out but Pink Clubwear has great alternatives. The link is down below.
