DOTD: Colorblocking… Finally

Hola Divas…
I love Colorblocking. I sit on Pinterest as much time as I can and I can’t get enough of images of bloggers, models, and everyone in colorblocking pictures. And I think to myself that I would love to colorblock. I know you’re thinking that you’ve seen me colorblock. But there is always a piece that draws the colors together. A necklace, shoes, or earrings…always a piece that have both colors together so that I didn’t have to actually work so hard at the colorblocking.

I finally did it. I colorblocked and did so without a linking piece. I love red and teal and this morning I was so pressed to wear them together and I have to admit… I am in LOVE with how this turned out. I wore black basics to draw the pieces together but I am glad I colorblocked with 2 colors FINALLY…. now my next goal… to colorblock with 3 colors… hehe… I’m so proud of myself…. I’m also proud that I did 2 posts in one week.

Now to the honest part… I really wanted to wear this with a different pair of shoes but I couldn’t see me making it the entire day in any other shoes. I love these shoes because they are one of the few pair of heels that I own that can be walked in for more than 6 hours. I mean I can do these shoes almost all day no problem. I had to go see my son’s PO (who said that my son is doing amazingly) and I had to go and rip my leasing office a new one (seriously… everything bad that happens in this neighborhood is not my son’s fault… PERIOD)… but I digress… Today was long but productive and now (thank goodness) it’s almost over. I plan on posting this and then reading or being on Pinterest until I fall asleep. How was your day? Did you do anything eventful? Have you colorblocked yet? If so, how do you think it turned out? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~

P.S. I just realized that I’m wearing almost all Forever21+


What I Wore While Blocking the Color:
Black Cami: Forever21+
Teal Lace Top: Forever21+
Red Skinnies: Forever21+
Shoes: Off Broadway Shoes
Ring: Charming Charlie
Earrings: beauty supply
Sunglasses: Flea Market

DOTD: Making a little Sunshine During Darkness

Hola Divas…
I’ve seen some drama in the last few days. Drama that I can’t completely go into on my blog because I don’t know who will read it… but drama, none the less. I wish I could just put into words just what I’ve been through but know that it was work related and for the first time in my life I realized that I am not able to work with “every” personality. Anyway….

I love purple… I think that in the years that I’ve worked on this blog you may have figured that out… lmao… so when I need some “fabric courage”… I tend to go with purple (my signature color) or red (my power color). In this instance, today, I went with purple. I also went with yellow because I love purple and yellow together and I also think that nothing brightens up a day like yellow… hence my title…

I don’t know how I truly feel about this outfit but I do know that I felt better after putting it on. Do you have a color you wear for certain situations? Do you find that certain colors can give you courage or power where nothing else can? Or do you have a piece of clothing in your closet to accomplish this feeling? What do you think of my color combination? Do you or have you had a situation at work that makes you question everything? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~

What I Wore To Get Through Today:
Purple Tank: Wal-Mart
Yellow Top: Alloy
Skinny Jeans: Dots
Purple Pumps: Target
Earrings: beauty supply
Ring: Charming Charlie
Necklace: forgot…

DOTD: And the award for worst blogger ever goes to…

Hola Divas…
I have completely fallen off my blogging game… I want to blog but lately I’ve been sooo swamped at work that I just can’t seem to find the time/desire. Now this week has also been bad because I have a double ear infection and strep throat… but I I persevered and made it to work (albeit not particularly on time). But today… after finally having a diagnosis… I decided to step up my fashion game today. I have to say this is one of my favorite outfits in a while. I felt like all the pieces seemed to come together effortlessly.

Now I need you to ignore the fact that I am makeup-less and that my face is swollen (yea… its that bad). But focus on my first piece ever purchased from Macy’s and my awesome shoes that I love. And also today was the first outdoor picture and I hope there will be many more to come…

Now that I truly intend to stay connected… What have I missed in the blogsphere? Have you blogged any outfits or content that you really want me to check out? Leave a comment with a link below *smiles*
~hasta la proxima~ besitos

P.S. Did you notice I’m wearing one of my new favorite colors? CORAL!!!


What I Wore While Really Not Feeling Well:
Sheer Batwing Top: Soprano (Macy’s)
Crop Challis Pants: Forever21+
Shoes: ShoeDazzle
Watch/Necklace/Earrings: Charming Charlie
Ring: Dots
Bracelets: Lane Bryant 
Sunglasses: Coach
