Spring Layering with Lightweight Jackets

When Reah Norman of StyledbyReah.com asked me to take part in the Bloomingdales Shop For Women Spring event, I jumped at the chance. She showcased seven spring trends and I was asked to help with one of my favorites—layering with lightweight jackets. We might be right smack in the middle of spring, but that doesn’t mean it’s been all sunny days and blooming flowers. No matter where you live, you know the weather has been…

I Am #WomenInspired

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Prudential and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own. I grew up in a home where my dad was the key provider. My mom worked, but she didn’t bring in what my dad did. And although we lived paycheck to paycheck, we had everything we needed. My parents worked their butts off to make sure we had the basic necessities. I appreciated that more than…

Giveaway A Mother’s Style and Influence (Closed)

Sponsored by Gwynnie Bee. When it comes to my mom and personal style where do I even begin? I’ve written about her before (and even my abuelita) and how her dressing me as a kid taught me about fashion. I mean…she styled me for the first 18 years of my life—and I practically fought her every step of the way. But, that doesn’t mean I didn’t admire the way she dressed. She has and will…
