I have taken a MAJOR hiatus from the blog over the past month! I got a new, full-time job and went to NYC for ten days, so I’ve been pretty busy! I ALSO have a lot of exciting changes coming to the site, so stay tuned over the next few months. I will try and post as often as I can!
As for this post, I documented what I wore everyday this week. Like I have mentioned a few times before, this blog is to show you how I rotate the same pieces in my wardrobe to create new outfits. I feel like with this series, you will really get to see how I do that!
ps. Since I am revamping the site, please leave me any feedback!
Dress: Old Navy, Jacket: Forever 21, Shoes: DSW , Purse: Kate Spade, Necklace: JewelMint
Guys, my whole life has been turned totally upside down. I am MADLY ADDICTED to Gossip Girl right now. I know I am a few years too late, but I have never been one to watch too much TV. I always knew that GG was a show known for its fashion but school and my social life always kept me busy. But now, thanks to Netflix, I spend all my free time watching it and I must say that I am so inspired by Blair Waldorf’s style. She is the epitome of class, sophistication and elegance (minus her scheming). Call this a phase, but I plan on channeling my inner Blair a little more through my wardrobe. By layering this tweed blazer over a delicate white dress paired with a snake embossed heel I feel like I am getting there!
My go-to outfit combination is a pair of loose shorts and a chambray shirt. I got these amazing chevron shorts a year ago at a Charlotte Russe sale and they were only $10! I bought another pair which I wore in this post. My chambray shirt is probably the most worn item in my closet as you have seen me wear it on the blog many times. Even though it is summer I chose to wear my ankle boots for a bit of height since the shorts are pretty short. I think it adds a bit of edge to the outfit as well. I pulled my hair up into a messy top-knot to accentuate my collar. I hardly ever wear my hair up but I really liked my new method for top-knots.
What are your go-to outfit combos? I would love to try!
Tank: Old Navy (similar), Bralette: Target, Pants: Forever 21 (similar here and here), Purse: Jessica Simpson
There are obvious items that every girl should have in her wardrobe such as a great pair of jeans, a chambray shirt, a blazer, etc. However one item that I have had for a while and I have found to be very versatile have been these brown cargo pants from Forever 21 that I bought a few years ago. I have been able to dress them up and down and they are really, really comfortable. When I hear the word cargo I tend to think of baggy boy shorts, but I love the skinny fit of these which allow me to cuff them at the ankle for a more casual feel. Since the color is a little dull I decided to wear a bright pink bralette underneath a loose white tank top. My passion ice tea was also helpful in adding a bit of color to this outfit.
HAIR NEWS: Did you notice my hair is shorter? I finally, after two years, got a hair cut. And that’s not all. I ALSO got my hair straightened again. Two years ago I had my hair straightened which I wrote about here. After many mornings stressing about my curly, tangled, frizzy hair I knew it was time to make my life a whole easier and get my hair done again. I use the Japanese method as opposed to the Brazilian and I absolutely love it!
If I am being totally honest here I have no idea where I bought this dress or when I bought it. I THINK I bought it around middle school or maybe early high school. What I love about this dress is its ode to a Puebla style dress. I love the eyelet and embroidered detailing that runs along the hemline, sleeves and neckline. My family is from Mexico so I love anything that play a little tribute to my culture. I paired the dress with some wedges in a neutral color because I wanted to the details of the dress to really stand out here. Wearing my hat and sunnies was the perfect touch for such a sunny day and it really gave this outfit a vacation style look.
When I first decided I wanted to start a blog it took me a while to figure what I wanted to name it. After what seemed like months of debating I came up with adry on the daily. I picked this name because I wanted my blog to be a representation of my daily life. It’s hard to wear your every day clothes when other bloggers are wearing glammed up looks. But this blog is meant to inspire fashionable looks even when you are running errands or even just hanging out at home. There is no reason you can’t feel your very best even when you are wearing sweat pants.
I have never been much of a sweat pants girl and all the pairs I own have been gifted to me, just like these pink ones that my mom gave me for Christmas. It came with a matching sweater and I fell in love with the set for so many reasons! First off, I am obsessed with the color blush and I adore the subtle gold details. I also really love how they are slim fit and I prefer to wear them scrunched up at the calf. Since it was a bit hot out I paired the pant with an old StyleMint tank and a bralette underneath. I have to say that I am entirely obsessed with this bralette. Not only does it have gold polka dots (score!) but it’s really comfortable and it provides a nice break from wearing a regular bra.
For a casual look like this, I just put my hair up in a high pony and curled the ends a little to add volume. For my makeup, all I did was put on my favorite BB cream, blush, mascara and lip gloss. I also chose to wear my tote purse which is ideal when running errands.
As you already know, I have a mild, I mean major obsession with polka dots so it was only a matter of time till I created an entire look using some of my many polka dot pieces. Instead of wearing a skirt with the same black and white polka dot print as my crop top, I went for a more subtle approach and wore this skirt that has a polka dot pattern in a reduced size and color palette.
I recently bought this hat from Windsor and I am so happy with it! I am pretty picky when it comes to brim size and this seems to be the perfect match. I wore my favorite sunnies and some comfortable black sandals. I then topped it off with… yup, a polka dot bracelet. I thought, hey one more thing can’t hurt!
OH MY GOSH! I graduated last Friday. That’s right, I am finally a college graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and a minor in Spanish. I have dreamt about college since before I could do long division! I really did not get emotional until I sat in my seat and opened my diploma to see my name printed on that parchment paper. After my ceremony I had lunch with my family and friends and I felt so blessed to share that special day with them. After four long years I happy to start the next chapter in my life. I am so excited that I am able to share this with you guys!
I could not have done this without my parents and my brother. This achievement is theirs just as much as it is mine! I love you familia!
A couple of weeks ago I had my college version of “prom.” My school planned a dance on a yacht and since it was during prom season I of course treated it like a real senior prom, minus the over the top glitz and glamour dress. Instead I wanted something classy and elegant yet still very modern. I found this dress at the Guess by Marciano store and it was love at first sight. (It was the first dress I tried on when I went shopping, like when does that ever happen?) I fell in love with the material because it was thick and hugged my shape perfectly. Since being on a boat is always really chilly the long sleeves were a major plus because I wouldn’t have to worry about carrying a coat. Wearing a dress with cutouts was kind of a huge step for me. I tend to dress a little more on the conservative side but these cutouts weren’t very revealing. This dress allowed me to show just enough skin while still being pretty covered up. I of course wore my amazing ShoeMint heels. I danced for like two hours straight in these suckers. Seriously, thank you ShoeMint!!!
Here are two pictures from that night. Sorry the photo quality is terrible, iPhone cameras at night just don’t work well together. And yes, this is my boyfriends blog debut! Meet Kevin (:
Guys, my roots are coming in and for those of you who don’t know, I had my hair permanently straightened almost two years ago. You can check it out in this post. I am quite conflicted if I should re-straighten it or just let me natural waves take over. My hair here is the aftermath of drying naturally and me trying to curl the straight parts of my hair to match my roots. Although I do think my curly hair gives me character, something about my straight hair makes me feel a little more me. I am a very indecisive person so we will see what I end up doing. Opinions?
On to my outfit, I am so in love with this yellow floral kimono. It is just so bright and airy and perfect for summer. Since it was a bit chilly I decided to wear it with an old pair of Forever 21 pants. I think they are about two years old and I have definitely been on the lookout for a new pair because these fit me a little too big. I decided to pair it with a white tank to give a monochromatic look and to allow the yellow to just pop!
And the arm party that is currently going on is my total fave! These three gold bracelets are playful and sophisticated and I basically wear them with my watch like everyday.
