Faux Fur and Leather

I love this faux leather vest that I bought from Belk on black friday it is so warm and cozy.  I was trying to figure out how I wanted to style it for the first time so I decided on my faux leather pants and my chambray shirt feel like this combo works well together, the chambray shirt brings everything together for me.  There is something that I may change the next time I wear this vest and that is my hairstyle (I am going to put it up in a high bun the next time I were this vest) I think by doing this it will give more focus to the vest and the accessories that I will be wearing.  What do you think of this combo?

Military Green With A Feminine Touch

 I bought these pants on black friday and I finally decided to wear them, I was however in need some inspiration so I browsed through good ol' Pinterest to see how others styled their outfits.  I know I wanted to give my look a feminine touch and I did that by adding a silk blouse, gold accessories and you can't forget the leopard heels.  I just love this color green, it is such a bold color you can combine it with just about everything.  Do you own any military inspired colors or pieces?

My New Favorite Boots!!

I purchased these boots when I purchased my sister in law's gift, Charlotte Russe was having buy one get one for $10!!! So I bought my sister in law's late birthday gift and I got my boots for just $10!!! that was one deal I could not pass up.  These have instantly become my go to boots, you can wear them with everything and be ready to go in now time... plus they add warmth to my legs on these cold days.  I love the color and the fact that the heel is not too high make them super comfy!! 
Yo compre estas botas cuando estaba comprando el regalo de mi cuñada, Charlotte Russe tenia un oferta comprar un par de zapatos y te llevas uno por $10! Así que le compre el regalo de cumpleaños de mi cuñada y me lleve mis botas por sólo $10! esa era una oferta que no podía dejar pasar. Estos se han convertido instantáneamente mis botas favoritas, las puede usar con todo y estará listo para salir de la casa super rápido... además que como son altas me abrigan mas las piernas en estos días fríos. Me encanta el color y el hecho de que el talón no es demasiado alto las hacen súper cómoda!

Be Back Soon!

Hey Guys...

I was going to do a post today but, I can't even concentrate with my 2 boys sick.  My youngest has an ear infection and upper respiratory infection and if that wasn't bad enough I was called from the daycare this morning after dropping them both off that my oldest son was having trouble breathing, as you can imagine I panicked and I left work immediately.  I was so worried since he as a newborn he was in the nice because he had swallowed some amniotic fluid so I always have that in the back of my head when he gets sick, after multiple tests and x-rays it turns out the my oldest son has RSV which is a "Respiratory syncytial (sin-SISH-uhl) virus, or RSV, is a respiratory virus that infects the lungs and breathing passages." Unfortunately they cannot give antibiotic since this is a respiratory virus, they did give us some steroids for him.  So that being said my head is just not focused enough to right a post right now, these boys are my life and seeing them helpless and not able to take away their aches and pains with a touch of a button just kills me.  I will be back soon maybe I will do a post on Friday depending on how things are at home, until then I am going to focus on giving them extra attention, love, and lots of snuggles to help ease their pains.

Hope you are having a fabulous week!

Fall In NC...

As you all know I live in North Carolina which the fall here can be pretty tricky, some days if can be cold in the mornings and hot in the afternoon.  Which makes getting dressed in the morning a bit stressful, because if you put on a thick sweater for the 30 degree weather in the morning by the afternoon you are burning up in the 73 degree weather.   But I must say that I do enjoy the weather down here because it is full of surprises.  How are you enjoying the weather where you live?

 Coat: Michael Kors, Blazer: Belk, Shirt: HM, Pants: HM, Shoes: BCBG via TJ Maxx, Necklace: Ily Couture, Watch: MK, Purse: Phillip Lim via Target

I love the color combo of this outfit

How fab are these black BCBG t-strap shoes? I bought them from TJ Maxx for less than $20!!

Hope you enjoyed the post!

Chambray Polka Dot Blazer

I bought this blazer on the Target clearance rack a while ago and I still had not worn it because I just couldn't find "the right" outfit to wear it with.  One day I decided I was going to go with light colors and decided that this was the time to put it to use.  I like the outcome of the outfit I feel like all the colors flow nicely together and the chambray blazer is a perfect contrast to the light colors.  Are you still embracing chambray or have you moved on?
Compré esta chaqueta en liquidación en la tienda Target hace un tiempo atras y todavía no la había usado porque no encontraba el atuendo "perfecto" para usarla. Un día decidí que me iba poner colores claros y decidí que este era el momento de perfecto para usar la chaqueta. Me gusta el resultado del atuendo, pienso que todo los colores fluyen bien juntos y la chaqueta de un contraste perfecto a los colores claro. ¿todavía usando el estilo chambray o lo han cambiado por otro estilo?

Giving Thanks... For Family!

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Johnson & Johnson and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, All opinions are my own.

Doing a little different post today.  As I reflect on these past few days I realize that family and people we call family are the motivation behind everything we do.  My kids are my motivation to give them a better future, to show them to always strive to be the best that they can be.  I am lucky enough to have a pretty big support system, We are lucky enough to have my husband's family close to us that allows us to have family gatherings, they love to bbq which gives us the opportunity to spend time together.  We are also lucky enough to have friends that we consider family that always join us on these family gathering/bbq's.  I think that is what it mean to be a Familia de Hoy it is not necessarily about blood family but about the people that love and support you, the people that will be there no matter what through happy times and bad times.

(part of the family)

(my son)

It's with saying the above is that I feel that the Jimenez family is a lot like my family they live close to each other they have family gatherings they share a sense of family values, love, and laughter which is important in today's world to have that feeling of security, of having a support system that will be with you every step of the way.  The Jimenez family needs our vote to become the Johnson & Johnson spokes family of 2014 you can click La Familia de Hoy to cast your vote for this lovely family.
