As a new season begins, feelings of renewal begin to build up inside of me. This season has begun with so many new realizations for me. Recently, I attended a conference where I had a lot of time to reflect on what is important to me as individual. Many times, we depend on other things, people, places, days of the week etc. …to give us happiness. Happiness should really stem from the inside, and feeling whole as an individual. I find that when I feel whole and happy and put forth positivity, I then, can assist others in finding happiness in their day.
One of my favorite things to do is make people laugh. I think laughter really can cure a multitude of bad moments in your day. At times, happiness can also be expressed through tears. Joy is a part of happiness that comes unexpectedly at times, for me. When I feel joy most deeply is when I think back on my most meaningful moments in life, either with my husband, family, or friends. The things that brought you the greatest joy are the things that you remember so intensely. Joy comes from focusing on positivity and feeds your overall happiness.
Wake up each day with the joy that you have another opportunity to impact the world in a positive way with your happiness.

I can’t leave out another thing that brings me great joy in a new season, and that is fresh new pieces in my wardrobe! White is officially one of my favorite color for this season. This color is a bit difficult to wear daily, but some of my favorite pieces are in the white family. This piece is a top/skirt combo. This off the shoulder top is the most versatile piece I’ve ever made. This top can be worn as a one-shoulder, off-the-shoulder, or on-the-shoulder for that Spanish feel. This piece is one of my favorite I have ever designed. I am very proud of my Mexican heritage and I love adding a little Latin flavor to my designs. This Latin ruffle is quickly becoming my signature, and I don’t mind it at all.
Pairing this all white look with a pop of color in my blood orange espadrilles was perfect. Even better was the fact that they cost $30 at Target, and they are incredibly comfortable. I recently wore them exploring Coconut grove with the family and they are perfect. And yes! I am sporting another gorgeous pair of tassel earrings from Ann Taylor. These earrings were the perfect pairing to the whole vibe I was going for with this look.
I’m so obsessed with the Summer Vibe in this look and I’m excited to show you guys some more unique pieces throughout the season. Stay Tuned! ‘til next time
