I don’t know what it is, but I always feel extra fancy when I am walking around Beverly Hills.

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 …

Fall for Boots

       It is the first day of fall! It is crazy how quickly time flies.  I can not say I was waiting for this season to start because I feel like this summer I was not able to enjoy it as much as I wanted to.  Believe me I will slowly start transitioning to fall appropriate weather.  (Talk to the LA weather guru because it has been extremely hot for the last couple of weeks) A way in which I am transitioning to Fall clothing is by dusting off my good ol’ boots and sporting them with anything from shorts, dresses, or skirts.  Like the lovely number you see above.  I got this from an amazing event in Down Town La called A Current Affair, which only happens twice a year once in April and the next In September 26 (this weekend).  I can not wait to see what is in store this time around.  They have so many things it is Vintage Nirvana.  It’s A Current Affair is selling tickets online hope you LA peeps …

Pastel Confetti

   Dress: State Pleated Overlay Dress   Pink Sandals similar here: Ugg I wanted to start preparing myself and say catch you later summer by wearing this gorgeous dress.  This dress automatically makes me feel like I am traveling in Europe enjoying a gelato and walking around the Trevi Fountain.  I’m the kind of person who is a summer junkie I love  being able to enjoy the sun’s rays, while I go to the beach or even as I head out to PCH for a scenic drive.  Don’t get me wrong I am looking forward for fall, but can I just have a couple of days more to enjoy summer with all its might?  I wore this 1.State dress that I’m currently obsessed with- I love the pastel rainbow colors and how the pleats on the the dress are so breezy. They kinda feel like a 1920’s silk dress.  I hope you all enjoy the last days of summer to there fullest!!!

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.

Orange You Glad ?

Jogger Jeans, Kurt Geiger Heels, Top was bought at A Current Affair (a massive vintage sale in a warehouse in Down Town LA) There is something about man inspired outfits that makes me feel so liberated.  I am not saying that dressing like a man makes me feel powerful.  It is the action of not having to wear tight dresses and or revealing clothing to feel that much more confident.  We are so lucky to be able to rock both male and female clothing with a kick ass attitude.

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 …

Girly Dress

It’s funny to think how fast time flies and how changes occur so suddenly.  We are now getting close to hitting June, it’s the half way point of this year!  I looked back on the goals I had set for 2015, and so far I haven’t accomplished half of them.  One of the goals I did accomplish was walking for my graduation and receiving my AA degree. This weekend was my graduation from Cerritos College I received my AA degree in Business Administration.  It was the boost I needed to push myself harder in the University I am currently attending; CSULA, I am working on receiving my bachelors degree in Finance with a minor in Economics, If all goes well I will be the class of 2017.  I do dare to dream and I do dare to make these dreams become a reality. So many changes have happened this year from family getting bigger(my cousin is having a baby in June) to me cutting my hair( I know its not as big as a baby, …

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.
