Favorite Summer Dress?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ok…I look yucky and I’m not too happy with these photos, but they’ll do. I just wanted to show you the outfit I wore on Saturday, for our little gathering. This is the dress I bought at H&M. It is very roomy. It’s a large and I think it would fit anyone up to a size 22. This may be my new favorite dress for the summer and it has pockets! Yay! The great thing about this dress is the print and the colors. It can be worn so many different ways!

Back to reality

Once again, a fun weekend comes to an end. It sucks, but I guess I have to return to reality. Thanks a lot San Diego for making me fall in love with you. There is something about beach cities that I just can’t explain. When I visit them, I don’t want to leave. I fall more in love every single time.

San Diego welcomed me, my hubby, and one of my bff’s with open arms. We ate, slept, ate, shopped, drank, and ate. We even went swimming, thank goodness the outdoor pool was heated! It was a lot of fun. And I love that it’s only 2 1/2 hours from me. I am definitely going back soon.

I wore this outfit Friday night. It was a very casual outfit for a casual dinner in Old Town. Don’t mind the yellow hue of the pictures, I think it was the poor lighting in the hotel hallway.

Fun, Friends, Food, and Family

Is tomorrow Monday…already? Wow! Time does fly when you’re having fun. And believe me, it was a weekend filled with fun, friends, food, and family. I love it! I’m so blessed. I celebrated my hubby’s birthday with a BBQ on Saturday. We had so many friends in this tiny apartment, but that’s OK. We all fit and had the best food! Carne Asada, chicken, riblets, rice, and salad…Yummy! And I totally forgot to take a picture of my outfit. Ooopsie! But, I did have the hubby snap a few of my outfit today. I wore this to a high school graduation/pool party for my hubby’s little cousins. It was such a beautiful day in Southern California, that I decided to go with this strapless top. I’m on a mission to get a tan for my cousin’s wedding. Yeah…I don’t think it worked. Lol. How was your weekend?

Comfy to a Tee

If you’re a regular on this blog, then you should know how much I adore being comfy…remember…my number one rule. So, when Simply Be asked me choose a few things, I made sure to pick something that looked not only comfortable, but was a little different.

OK, first of all please do not mind the crazy bangs and my makeup free face. Lol. And I warn you that these are my lounge looks. I’ll have a dressier look for you soon! Promise.

I love the Frock & Frill Pageant Tee (#1)! I have gotten a lot of compliments on it and the quality is amazing. Super duper comfy. Then there’s the Acid Wash Zip Neck Top (#2) that goes amazingly well with leggings. Yes, I said acid wash! I haven’t worn that since I was a teen. I had to try it. Both tops can be worn many ways and I think that’s what I love the most about them.

Don’t forget Simply Be will be available to the U.S. online in July! It’s almost here!!

It’s time to get bridal…

It’s wedding season!! Yay! I love weddings…actually I love…LOVE! I’m a sucker for love. I’m not ashamed to admit it. With love, sometimes comes marriage. Speaking of marriage, I just so happen to be a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding. I can’t wait. I’m super excited! Yesterday, we celebrated her “tea party” themed bridal shower. It was so much fun! Isn’t she beautiful!! She’s hilarious! Look it’s my mommy too! The wedding is next month, so stay tuned for more bridal pics to come!!

If you’re on twitter, then you might have seen me tweeting about the dress I’m wearing. I wasn’t sure if I wanted it or not. I don’t usually wear large prints like this, but I thought I’d try something different. I haven’t worn a maxi dress in ages. I almost forgot how comfortable they are!

ASOS Curve…I love you.

It’s official…I’m in love with the ASOS Curve line. Ok, I may only have one purchase under my belt, but I’m sold. I know a lot of you love their clothes as well, so I had to buy something. Whenever I order something online, I try to buy something on clearance, just in case I don’t like the way it fits. This way I know I didn’t spend a lot of money on it (It’s the inner bargainista).

As I scoured the clearance, I found the Woven Insert Tee (see pic above) for only $8.45 in white!! I wore it on Saturday night to a romantic Italian dinner with my hubby. BTW this is so L.A…this is the resturaunt where the hostess was a contestant on America’s Next Top Model. Anywhoo…

This tee is so comfortable and the cotton is undeniably soft! Initially, I was worried that it might be too see through, but it wasn’t. I wore a nude bra underneath and I got the hubby’s approval. The length and fit is perfect. Congrats ASOS…you now have a new customer!

L.A’s Beautiful Day

Another beautiful day in Los Angeles. It was so nice out, it made me want to throw a skirt on. That is rare! And you know me and my comfy clothes. Nothing restricting here! After a morning of doing laundry, I spent the day with my dad and even helped him get a new phone. A very simple cell phone by the way! No camera, no internet, and he blocked texting. He’s hilarious…my dad is very old school and I love him for that! After, we met up with my hubby for a delicious meal at my favorite (in the whole wide world) Chinese food restaurant. Rumor is, my mom ate Chinese food 3 times a week when she was pregnant with me. That explains a lot!

New Feature: B.Chic

Hey curvaliscious ladies!

Let me take a sec to introduce you to a new little feature.

“B.Chic: Fashion and Beauty by Brenda.”

Who is Brenda? She’s my beautiful cousin! I love this chick! After the past couple of weekends in Arizona, I’ve come to grow envious of her fashion styling and make-up skills! I’ve told her to go pro, but she won’t listen to me! And can you believe she’s a proud mommy!

Brenda will send me photos of her outfits and make-up, and I’ll post it here! Check out her reviews on Chick Advisor. (She’s in the process of building her profile.)

Enjoy!

Gray and Comfy

Last night, the hubby and I met up with his sister and brother to watch our lovely Los Angeles Lakers. I wasn’t really in the mood to dress up or anything. I was in one of my good ol’ comfy moments. Seems like I’ve been in that kind of mood lately. By the way, I haven’t worn a denim jacket since I was a little girl! I got this gray one at Old Navy for $7!! It has a very worn and thrifted feel to it. I wish it was more fitted, I felt like my waist got lost in this outfit. And yes…the Lakers did win!!

Simply Simple

My hubby and I went out last night for a pre-bithday date night. Nothing fancy, so I just threw on a comfy and simple outfit and my hair in a bun. We went to eat at one of my fave resturaunts-Chyn King on 3rd/La Brea in L.A. So yummy! Then we went to the Little Bar…love this place. It was a chill night…one of my favorite kind of nights. Then I just sat there and counted down until midnight…second by second…until I was a year older. Blah! It’s OK…age is nothing but a number anyways. Lol. Right?

Easter Weekend

I spent this past Easter weekend in Arizona with my family and let me tell you it was an exhausting one! It was a last minute trip, but it was nice to get out of town for a minute. I got back late last night and I am sooooooo happy to be back home. L.A. has my heart for sure!

I wore this outfit for Easter Sunday (with a black cardigan for church). Later, I switched out the heels for white gladiator sandals. It was a pretty comfy outfit, especially the pants. I love the buttons. I was battling with my hair…and I lost. Yuck. My mom was the photographer this time…she’s pretty good…a little blurry…but good. :)
