Comments:
Today I tried to mix patterns for the first time and I'll be honest, I had no idea what I was doing! jajaja. I have seen many people mix patterns beautifully and look so chic while pulling it off. But I really struggled with this one since I am used to only having one focal point. Anyway, I was glad to try something new so it was all worth it! How do you mix patterns?

Today I accompanied by boyfriend to watch a Monster Jam show (the ones with the HUGE cars running over small cars). I wasn't that excited to go since I am a flowery, sunny, happy type of girl and it just didn't seem like my thing. Nevertheless, I went there with a positive attitude hoping to have as much fun as I could.

Who would have known that I actually enjoyed it? jajaj weird I know! It was just very exciting and different that I actually enjoyed myself a bunch! Goes to show that its good to try new things, such as monster jam and pattern mixing, because you just might like it!

Yaaiii!! Today I found out that I would be going back home for spring break!!! Yaaaaiii! I'm so excited!! So to celebrate I decided to wear a happy outfit (well actually, I wear happy outfits each day but whatever!). I decided to pair this pretty floral dress with this rich navy turtleneck making the dress look like a skirt. I finished it off with this shiny bow necklace which landed me a whole lot of compliments today :)

Today I am wearing for the first time this jersey necklace I made! Yai! I really like how it turned out. After making the first one, my family suggested to make the next one with different levels of threads and to make it longer. So that is just what I did and I love it like this!

What I like most about this necklace is the beautiful colors and the cute flower. It sorda reminds me of a sunrise with all the orange, yellow, and red shades. What do you think?

I am so so so so happy with how I look today!! It's one of those outfits that just make you feel happy and pretty all day! I started off wanting to wear this rose dress that I looove so much. Then I paired it with my happy red boots and added the white sweater to make it more winter appropriate. I forgot that I was wearing white and took pictures in front of snow (oops!)... jeje. Anyway, today was a really happy outfit!

Today's outfit was inspired by the $1 scarf I got at Walmart a way long time ago. I really like the colors and plaid pattern of the scarf (and did I mention it was just one dollar!)... jaja.

So anyway, I decided to pair it with this block dress and teal jacket to play off the colors of the scarf. I also decided to tie it in this triangle shape I have seen so many people wear lately. I always enjoy finding new ways to tie scarves. What's your latest favorite?

Comments:
Today I really wanted to wear one of the many funky leg warmers my parents gave me for Christmas, so I decided on this pair and built an outfit around them. I kept most of the outfit neutral and just added pops of aqua throughout the outfit for interest. I'm very happy I was able to incorporate this tee since it reminds me of my dear brother living in Spain :)

I also realized today that I forgot to show all of you one of my cork boards.!The other day I made a post about a cork board project I finished, and I forgot to show the last one I made... jaja I'm so forgetful sometimes. Anyway, here it is:
Feb 22 (9)
The theme on this cork board is more like memories. We see some things I have made like the dolphins craft and the mask. I also added some postcards my brother and mother have sent me which remind me of them. Last I added a couple of booth pictures I took with my boyfriend that always seem to make me smile. Just another decoration in my house that makes me cheerful everyday :)
