New York Fashion Week day 1!

I can't believe my trip to New York​ is here and gone. Time flies! Now that I'm back I can share all the fun that happened while I was there.

This look I wore on the flight from Arizona to Newark. I had a Michael Costello presentation to attend and I was late as it was already. My flight landed around 6 and the presentation was from 6-8pm so we raced to grab the rental car and drive the 40 mins it takes to get there.  

With having to go so quickly from the airport to the event we didn't check bags so we could just walk straight to the rental car place, I tell you that because I wish you could have seen us scramble through the plane and airport.

I put Chuck's big boy car seat on top of his stroller and had bags over my shoulder my poor sister and mom were holding all my bags on top of their own and since Chuck had his own seat I carried him in his car seat onto the plane where I hit every single person ​that I passed. People saying ''aww'', ''oh my gosh'', and ''ahh.'' They were all pretty mad at me. I was so embarrassed. It's a tight squeeze down the aisle! 

My poor mom's back was for sure broken. She carried 4 bags onto the plane and my sister had a ton of mine too. ​

Fun times!​

On my way!

We got the car and packed it up and we were on our way. We got to the venue, checked in, and say the stunning gowns and floral walls. Just perfection! His dresses were beautiful! We met Desi Perkins and Michael Costello himself. It was a blast. I had such a nice time. You ladies went crazy for this look on Instagram! 

So here it is!​

Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by and for being such faithful readers that allowed me this opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week, I couldn't have done it without you!​

​Did you read my blog post featuring a $30 basic wrap dress I posted last week? If not you can find it here

Just another wrap dress!​

Did you see this post recently here on the blog?! It's the same dress just a different print. It comes in a few different colors. The one I'm wearing is currently sold out but it comes ​in a few other cute ones. Including the black one I wore. 

It's on sale for around $30. It can be layered and is just a lovely basic dress to have in your wardrobe. ​

I'm coming home from New York today. Did you catch my adventures on Instagram?! ​

I had such a wonderful time but I'll be happy to get back home to my husband and prepare for my next adventure, halloween, and my baby's first birthday. It isn't until November but I'm a planner. So I want to get ready now before the craziness or the holidays start. Thanksgiving and Christmas decor is already on display. My stress levels can't handle anymore. ​Haha!

Anyway, we are one step closer to the weekend. I hope you have a great rest of your week. I pray God's blessings on you!​

​Wish me traveling luck getting back home! Thanks for reading, it means so much to me.

Cold shoulder sweatshirt: Love, Fire // Denim: STS Blue // Sunglasses: Quay // Handbag: BP // Necklace: SugarFix // Booties: DV 

I'm in New York!​

Although I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing right now since this is a pre-scheduled post. Wanna know what I'm up too?! Follow me on Instagram and you can find me on insta-stories. ​

I hope your weekend was great and your Monday is off to a good start. I'm enjoying life in the big apple, it's on of my favorite if not my favorite. There's no city like it and I wish I could live there. The noise, the craziness, the people. I love it all!​

It's bittersweet being here on 9/11. I hope to get to go to the One World Trade Center and take a moment to see all the names of the sweet people who lost their lives that heartbreaking day. Say a prayer for all the families who lost loved ones this day 16 years ago. 

On a much lighter note...​

Let's talk this cold shoulder sweatshirt!

It's perfect for that weird in between season. Where it's not full on summer nor is fall completely here. ​

You won't sweat like a pig in this sweatshirt but it adds just a bit of warmth as it's heavier than a regular top. ​

These Jeans are $45!​

No joke! Such a good price and they aren't distressed which works well with the fall and winter months. So you don't get cold legs!​

As always these sunglasses are a favorite and are under $100 my bag is under $40 and has the cutest gold rings. You can hold it by the rings or it can be a crossbody or worn over your shoulder.  ​

Cheers!

God bless

Twist Front Tee: BP {$22} // Necklace: BP // Handbag: BP {Not online yet, super similar} // Denim: AG Jeans // Ring: Madewell // Mule Booties: DV 

Life is just peachy!​

Or at very least this tee is. If peach isn't your color it comes in quite a few and is only $22. It's so easy to wear and would be great for layering as the season is changing. ​

Pretty much everything I'm wearing besides the jeans is under $50. Top, handbag, and accessories. ​

Great buys right?!​

So I've been running around like crazy getting ready for New York. ​Besides the whole ''fashion week'' thing. I think traveling, in general, is just hectic. The hustle and bustle of getting to the airport, almost stripping through TSA. Shoes, belts, jackets, jewelry... I practically feel naked. Lol!

Add a baby to the mix and it is full on chaos. He isn't bad at all and it isn't even really ''him'' it's just nearly your entire diaper bag needs to be thrown out and into its own bin.

Baby food, formula, wipes, so basically everything you got in there needs to come out on top of all your other stuff. I don't travel light so maybe this mainly applies to me instead of anybody else.

I'm also building it up in my mind because I'm a girl who makes mountains out of mole hills. That's just who I am. Although that isn't really a good thing. Luckily I'm traveling with my family so my stroller, diaper bag, car seat, and all my luggage won't be being juggled by only me. My sister will have to take a turn. Ha!

​Wish me traveling luck! Thanks for reading, it means so much to me. 

​Would you wear this peachy top?!

Welcome, September!

So I guess September is up and running. My baby turns 10 months old, I go to New York at the end of this week. 

I don't know if I've mentioned this, but I can't bring myself to leave my baby behind so he is coming with me on a 6-hour flight with a 3 hour time change. 

I'm praying he is ok with it all. That seems hard on a baby who doesn't understand what's going on. 

Then when we get back I want to start getting Halloween stuff ready because it's off to Disneyland for us the first week of October. ​

I'm so excited for our adventure. 

On to the outfit...​

This striped pullover!

It's under $40 and is so great for this time of year. The distressed deconstructed look is just adorable. I love the street style vibes!

This black denim is wonderful for fall. These bad boys are only $45. You can find them here!

This handbag is also so affordable and the ring handle is such a fun and cute little touch. 

Thanks for reading and spending time on my blog. Remember to pray for Hurricane Harvey victims, and you can find more information about how to help on the bottom of my last blog post here.

Cheers!

God bless

Wrap Dress: Lush // Necklace: SugarFix // Sunglasses: Quay // Handbag: Henri Bendel {old, similar} // Booties: DV

This wrap dress is on sale!​

So not only is it a great basic dress, that can be worn during any season. With sandals in the summer, layered in the winter, worn with a light jacket in the fall but it's also under $30. 

I repeat under $30!​

It comes in other colors too. I love it in a cute floral pattern in addition to the one I'm wearing here today.​

These booties!​

They are just adorable with the zip detailing and they are super affordable. They are from Target!​ They are under $40!

I also have cute mule booties by the same brand you can find them in this post. They are also under $40.​

On a completely different and more important note. ​

Houston needs our prayers! The people of Houston have had a lot of devastation and disaster with Hurricane Harvey. To watch the news is just so sad. People have lost so much including loved ones. Did you hear about the family of 6? Just heartbreaking. I talked about a great blog post written by a blogger who lives there that includes ways and resources to help.

You can find it on my blog in this post or go directly to Veronika's blog post here

Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to check out my blog. It means a lot. ​

Cheers!

Lace Top: Wayf // Denim: AG Jeans // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Handbag: Topshop // Mule Booties: DV

This Wayf lace top!​

Comes in two colors. ​The pink one I'm wearing and also a ivory/cream color. It's currently sold out online but I'm sure it will be around a Nordstrom near you. I've seen it around at my local Nordstrom as of yesterday.

However, this one is just as cute! You can find it here

The thing I love most about Wayf's tops especially these lace ones is that they look adorable with jeans but can be so easily dressed up with skirts and heels.

They are very versatile. Think everyday and church!​

Do you like this Wayf lace top?!​

We'll skip to shoes!​

We will just skip straight to the good part. These adorable mule booties are $35.

So affordable right?! Target finds ladies Target finds!​ I also got the booties in this post from target too. You can find the post here

Please don't forget to pray for Houston with the devastation going on with Hurricane Harvey. ​ So many people have lost their homes, all of their belongings, just everything they have because of this storm. 

If you want to find out ways you can help Veronika over at Veronika's Blushing wrote an amazing post on how to do just that! Be sure to check it out here. It has all kinds of info as well as sources where you can find out more. She talks about shelter, donations, relief items needed, and pet shelters too. 

Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to check out my blog. It means a lot. ​

Cutout Tee: BP { Under $40} // Jeans: Articles Of Society // Sunglasses: Quay // Chocker: SugarFix // Handbag: Henri Bendel // Booties: DV 

This tee is under $40. 

It comes in two colors. The one I'm wearing and like a distressed mustard kind of color. ​

Both are really cute! ​This tee has the best cutouts and sleeve details. It's so unique and makes for such a great street style look. 

These jeans are also amazing!​

The hem line is so edgy and looks so adorable with little booties just in time for fall transition style. They are under $70 and fit pretty great. They are both comfortable and cute!

My handbag is vintage. Ha!​

This Henri Bendel bag is old but ​I linked a super chic one instead. 

I want to thank you so much for reading and buying through my links and just following along with my life and blog. It means so very much, I appreciate it. 

Have you read one of my posts from last week? If not catch the latest one here. Featuring this velvet dress under $100!

June & Hudson Dress!

This dress is the perfect transition piece to have in your closet this season. It's so well made and feels heavy. Not in an uncomfortable way, but rather in a this feels ''expensive'' kinda way. It's not...

It's under $100! 

I  can't believe soon enough it will be fall. 

School has started and has been started here in Arizona, and I know it's starting all around the nearby states. 

Even though the weather doesn't change much where I live. It will be starting to charge pretty soon everywhere else. 

I'm excited to be going to New York and I hope it's cool while I'm there, then again everywhere is cool in comparison to 110 degrees. Ha!

Do you have any fall plans?! I have a few in the books. 

New York and Disneyland 

One coast to the complete opposite coast. Crazy!

I'm going to take my baby to Disneyland in October. I'm so excited! I think he's going to love it. Even though he's little I swear he knows Mickey Mouse. He laughs and smiles when he sees him. ​

I'd love to hear your plans if you have any for fall. Thanks for reading!​

Cheers!

God bless

I'm back! Wearing this tie sleeve top!

So I've been one busy lady lately but I'm happy to say I'm ready to recommit to the blog. 

Gotta be honest I've had a busy year. I had a baby, moved to a new apartment, traveled a lot. I've been to Utah, Nevada, California, and soon traveling to NYFW all with a baby! 

I know I didn't ''give birth'' to a baby this year but he was a little less than 2 months old when the new year began so I have gotten into a routine or should I say into a whole big massive lifestyle change this year. 

I mean my whole life has changed...I'm a mom!​

It's only August...there's still a lot of the year left!​

I've even tried to implement a whole new routine. My sister and I go to the gym at 5 am while my baby is still asleep because I have to get back to being healthy because since Chuck's been born I just haven't wanted to. ​

We've also been reading our bible and praying together and I say that to remind you how important is to keep God first​. I've struggled with that and once you start, you realize quickly what you should be putting first in your life. Or better yet who!!!

So I'll be here if you need me. You can also follow me on Instagram and Snapchat if you care to see me more often and in the real life. Ha!​

So enjoy this cute tie sleeve top under $50!

Cheers!

God bless
