Riders on the Storm

{Skirt: Gap, Sandals: Steve Madden, Accessories: Thrift Stores} The dessert like the ocean in my eyes is seen as a place to reflect on life.  This summer I have been doing a lot of soul searching.  Riding through this desert I have thought about where my life is at the moment and where I want to be in life in the close future.   Being ambitious…there is nothing wrong with being that way.  I love learning new things and mastering the skills that I once feared.  Being a photographer specially starting this summer I have faced  a  lot of challenges.  I even started to doubt my skills, but by staying positive and being persistent I know that I can conquer it all.

Spontaneous is my Middle Name

  {TJ Maxx Dress, Steve Madden Gladiator Sandals, Forever 21 hat and accessories, Buffalo Exchange Bag} The word spontaneous accelerates my blood.   That and the word trip.  This past weekend my boyfriend and I decided to visit our love nest.  It is a place that was currently hit with tragedy and it saddened our heart that Santa Barbara was struck with such travesty.  It is a place that is filled with peacefulness and the news did not hit us until we were already driving to visit our “home” We tried not to think of what had occurred on the past days and our prayers do go out to the families of the victims. Everything about this trip was spontaneous.  From deciding to take our dear Penny for the first time on our small road trip to riding on the coast of Santa Barbara with Penny inside the basket.  I loved everything about it and this day will be marked in my heart forever.

Sunset with Lace

  {American Apparel dress, heels purchased in Amazon, Ivanka Trump purse, Marc Jacobs watch, Thrift Store accessories} Hello everyone, Once again I find myself having a small hiatus from my blog and it is something that breaks my heart.  From the end of another school year to a daily 8 to 5 job.  I find myself struggling with finding time to do what I love to do.  I managed to find the time I needed and enjoy the three day weekend we just had.  I love enjoying the weekends as much as possible and stay away from sitting down, which is what I do at my office job.  The outfit that I wore was different from the rest.  I wanted to feel extra fancy this day so I put the dress that always makes me feel so lady like and ended with my dear Penny Lane by my side and witness the beautiful sunset.        

When Life Gives You Lemons

{Dress Buffalo Exchange, Heels JCpenny, Hat and accessories Forever 21} Moving forward from the bad luck I had last week is something that I am slowly learning to get over.  From last week’s dreadful accounting test to getting sick, and the cherry on top: getting my car towed away in the mix of other things.  I learned to look at situations from a different perspective.  Things happen for a reason and even though we try to live life perfectly things will happen that are out of our control.  If we didn’t encounter problems then life would not be interesting.  In this city that I love I have to learn to grow tough, specially being a Mexican woman.  Bring on the lemons and salt because I need to make Margaritas. This dress was a perfect representation of how i was thinking of my situations.  When life gets tough bring on your best outfit forward because even though life is not going your way.  A great outfit will boost confidence and bring on a smile. Ladies and gents I …

Journey of a Dress

{Tj Maxx  crop Top, Windsor Leather Jacket, Peter Pilotto for Target skirt, Olsenboye Strappy heels, Ray ban glasses, Vintage purse, Mar Jacobs watch} The Journey of a designer specially Diane Von Fursteberg Story is one to really look out for.  She was able to work with the times and give woman freedom with the rap dress.  Specially during the 70’s when woman were fighting for equal rights.  Her wrap dress itself gave women the freedom to wear what they desired and it was accessible, while still being fashion forward.  Having the opportunity to witness all these dresses was something eye opening. I wanted to wear an outfit that went with the patterns Miss Furstenberg has created over the years and my skirt was a perfect representation of those dress. I hope you all enjoy your weekend, xoxo Charms of Penny

Spring has Sprung

{Thrift Dress, Aldo Bag, Jeffrey Campbell Heels, Forever 21 earrings, bracelet, and necklace, Marc Jacobs watch} For days I have been anticipating this day. The first day of spring, it is the opportunity of new beginnings: The Flowers are starting to blossom, the time change, and the sunshine is coming out a bit more which means I get to wear more dresses.  Hello brighter colors and catch you later dear coats.  My inspiration to my “Hello to Spring” is my thrift Dress, which is crazy to believe that I found this dress at the amazing price of five dollars. I am now trying to find new hairstyles, it was one of the reasons why I am letting my hair grow, their is a lot of versatility. The location is a place that I have always looked at, but have never had the opportunity to visit.  The Walt Disney Hall is architecturally beautiful.  Every angle of this location is different it reminded me of a House of mirrors.    

I left my Heart in San Francisco

{Levis Pants, Vintage Leopard Jacket, Target shirt, Target Sunglasses, Cathy Jean Boots, Forever 21 earrings and ring} Ok so maybe I’m a bit obsessed with this city, so much so that I have dedicated three separate entrees to it. Yes its that magical and yes you should go and see for yourself what I am talking about.  The title speaks for itself, so far I have left my heart in San Fran everything about it was perfect, what made it even more perfect is that I had the opportunity to share these moments with my love. I dont know what it was, but this city brought my wild rock and roller side… literally I’m wearing leopard jacket..This outfit was a bit more risky to something I would not normally wear, honestly I loved that I took that risk.
