Head in the Clouds

ZARA: Maxi Dress It’s been such a long time my friends! Balance is one of the things I want to work on this coming year.  My goal is to keep you updated as much as possible with my wacky adventures.  I have missed being able to share what I have been up to, but with starting my photography business as well as maintaining my 8-5 job, and being a full time student it has kept me extremely busy.  No matter how extreme my schedule gets, I will not let go of my Charms of Penny it is a part of me. The location of the shoot above is a location that is often overlooked in DTLA.  I love how it is in the middle of it all so close to Pasadena, DTLA, and the university I attend.  The view of this nature spot is magnificent.  I can even saw the view is much better than in Griffith Park, I say this because the view of my little treasure city is so close.  From where I took …

Blue Jean Girl

   Jeans::Levis    Heels::Just Fab What is easier to style than the old jeans and white shirt combo? This is the first time I ever buy boyfriend jeans and let me tell you these jeans by Levis do not disappoint at all.  They are so comfortable I can wear them forever.  The closest thing to forever that I can do is wear them at least once a week.  I know that it is a big fashion no-no; frankly my dear I don’t give a dam.  A way to keep things interesting with my outfit is ofcourse to have popping accessories.  It keeps the go to outfit more interesting.  I will enjoy wearing these type of outfits for the time being since in Cali the summer heat is still fighting strong! I wanted to share with you guys something very close to my heart.  You probably have noticed my small absences from the blog.  The reason for this is that I am focusing a lot more on my photography business that I am starting up Lily Tapia …

Denim Boho Flare

Flare Daisy Pants: Forever 21  Levis Denim Top, but similar in Mango I am a true bohemian at heart.  With summer being here that inner chic nomad comes out even more than usual. Levis has to perfect mix of minimalism and boho, like the top I am wearing on the photos,  I had to pair it with my ever so cool flare pants.  Which I may say feel kinda like yoga pants, they are so comfy. Bring on the festivals, long summer nights, and beach days! I hope you all have an awesome week and I’ll Leave you with this question My bf and I are planning a road trip towards the end of August so question guys Where are some awesome, but local places to visit in California? Can’t wait to hear your ideas XOXO

Jump on It

Jumper is Vintage Heels:Steve Madden Stecy Heels  Backpack bought at TJ Maxx similar here: Leather Buckle Zipper Backpack As a Fashion Blogger I never thought it would be so hard to photograph in public locations. This shoot by far was one of the hardest shoots.  Maybe that’s what I get for believing that a crowd of fans from the Pasadena Music Festival would not try to photobomb my photos.  Silly me! This little jumper has become one of my favorite pieces of clothing.  Just as it looks it is very comfortable to wear I can not get enough on how spacious it is, so you know I let it all hang out and ate like there’s no tomorrow.  The only downside was the heels! I love them, but they are so darn uncomfortable.  It is okay though I forgive them, because I will be rocking them over and over again. (Can you say Love Hate Relationship?) I hope you all have a great rest of the week.  Positive vibes from me to all of you.

Rainbow Child

H & M- Camel Shorts   Forever 21-Long Line High Slit Racerback top  Blue Fringe Heels  Statement Necklace Summer is finally here! What a better way to kick the season going then by wearing these awesome and May I add camel shorts.  They are so comfortable I am even considering wearing them as a gym outfit. Heck no! I am only joking.  I wanted to try something new by incorporating this new trending top by Forever 21.  It not something I would usually wear, but since it is summer I was feeling a bit more daring than usual.  Just to give it that extra pop, I wore my blue fringe heels.  They give my outfit that extra wow factor. By the way guys excuse my absence as you can see there is a NEW LAYOUT for Charms Of Penny.  I hope you guys like it!!! I wish I was a bit more tech savvy, but slowly I’ll get there! I hope you all have a great week.     

Love Affair with Lace

The word is out! Or has it been that obvious? My love for lace dresses continues.  Is it trending in fashion right now? I don’t know and frankly I don’t care.  Lately as you saw on the post before I’ve grown obsessed with lace and cute vintage style dresses.  I am growing dangerously close to kinda sounding like a broken record when I say, this type of dresses are so chic to style. It makes me feel so comfortable and lady-like at the same time.  Gents, that is not a bad combination. Currently I am looking for inspiration.  I feel that I’ve grown detached to so many things that represented me.  Now that summer is near and I will have a short break (2 weeks of school) I can focus on bringing to light my adventorous and free side.  I will keep you posted on my goals for the summer. One of them has come true if you are following me on Instagram, and you should be: Ligerlily18,  you saw that my boyfriend and I just experience …

Wine Tasting

A couple of weeks ago my cousins and I took a road trip up to Santa Barbara.  We were celebrating my cousin’s bachelorette party.  We had a very relaxing weekend soaking up the beautiful sunny day.  To start things off we decided to  cruise around Solvang’s Wineries, it was my cousin’s first time ever to truly feel the beauty of a “buzz” lets just say she handle herself pretty darn well.  Her big day is a couple of weeks away.  I can not wait to see her in her beautiful wedding dress and get to see her embark in her happily ever after with the love of her life.

Return of Beach Days

Sometimes all a girl needs is a bit of Cali sunshine and a walk down the beach to get her day started.  What better way to compliment my relaxed morning by wearing my favorite comfy Jeans and awesome coat. This coat is a great transition from winter to spring and I am in love with how it makes an outfit that much more fashion forward. I can’t wait for the days ahead.  Goodbye layers and hello to beach bumming it all summer.

WoMan’s World

It is the last days of winter and I was feeling a little men’s wear vibe going on, while wearing my pant suit and plaid coat.  I wanted to give my outfit a tough look by adding my Jeffrey Campbell boots, which have become my favorite.  I have never seen a pair of boots more interesting than this bad boys.  I love how the straps wrap around the shoe and that they are a blue hue, it is the cherry on top.  I had to keep the colors close to each other so that my coat will pop out.  This coat is so Inpesctor Gadget meets Paul Bunyan in a concert. ha! You can say this is my 2015 outfit giving a kind farewell to winter with a bang of Kool Aid. The Art District in LA is one of those places that I have had on my list of places I want to visit.  It is amazing spot in LA filled colors and different ideas.   It inspired me even more to grab one of my …
