I fell in love with these powder-blue suede mules and rusty pink turban from River Island; it is very 50's housewife-chic to me. The destroyed denim makes for a more casual vibe. Wore this to lunch and a quick photo shoot with my honey.

I am not sure how much longer I'll be able to get away with wearing open toe heels with winter right around the corner, but I plan to push it as far as I can. No one likes a quitter, right?

Are you ready for the holiday season?

STRIKE A POSE

I know these are spring colors but I figured the trench makes it "cold weather" appropriate. How can you go wrong with a pencil skirt, crop top, and a trench? A trench coat can go along way and will last foreva'!

Happy Hump Day ;)

I thought it would be cute to post this look today since it is Halloween! What is more "Halloween-ey" than black and orange? I threw this on to meet my mom for an impromptu dinner date. I could go for another bowl of that Pho right about now.

I am wearing Forever 21 plus size pants, and top. The sandals are from TOPSHOP.

Happy Halloween, stay safe.

My new mission in life is to refine my personal style and stay relevant at the same time. I am half kidding, half serious. Maybe that is not the most practical goal for a "life mission" but it is what it is.

I rue the day when I look back at pictures 20 years from now and say to myself "what was I wearing". I am sure it is inevitable, but I will try to avoid it at all costs.

Happy Tuesday! XoXo Serena

Do Your Thang Girl

I am not sure if I have ever made my goal clear for this blog but I want to briefly say that my intent is to empower women and encourage them to express themselves in a way that is authentic and true to self.  Allowing society or friends and family to dictate what to wear and not to wear is  easy to do but not good for our souls. It is time to do what make us feel good about ourselves and not be concerned how others will perceive it.

I am forever on a journey of discovering what I like and dislike, but I am finding it out for myself and basing it off of my personal feelings and opinions. Don't get me wrong, I am all for flattering your figure and accentuating your best features, but play around until YOU like what YOU see.

Moral of the story: Do your thang' girl! Stay true to yourself and what you like.

Besos Chicas

You Are Beautiful!
