Dress/Traje: Peter Pilotto for Target, Booties/Botines: Madden Girl, Purse/Cartera: Michael Kors via TJ Maxx, Watch/Reloj: Michael Kors, Necklace/Collar: Lola Blue the Closet

This dress is absolutely fabulous! The print and colors are just amazing and a huge plus is that it is super comfy.  The fabric is soft and stretchy, and the length is perfect... I know that I will be able to get a lot of use out of it since it can be dressed up with a pair of heels or booties or you can dress it down with a pair of flats.  I kept everything simple because I wanted the dress to be the focus.  If you follow me on instagram you know that a couple weeks ago I was at TJ Maxx trying to decide which purse I wanted to buy and as you can see by the pictures I decided on the all blue Michael Kors bag which is beyond fabulous!

Este vestido es absolutamente fabuloso! El estampado y los colores son simplemente increíble y una gran ventaja es que es súper cómodo. La tela es suave y tiene un poco elásticidad, y lo largo es perfecto... Sé que le voy a dar un buen uso a este traje, ya que con un par de tacones o botines puedes lucir elegante o si se pone un par de flats puedes lucir mas casual, mantuve todo simple porque quería que el vestido fuera el foco.  Si me sigues en instagram saben que hace un par de semanas atras estuve en TJ Maxx tratando de decidir qué cartera que quería comprar y como se pueden ver por las fotos que me decidí por la cartera azul de Michael Kors y simplemente es fabulosa!

 Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Casual Sunday... 2 Weeks Ago!

Hey Loves!! Happy Monday... as you can tell I have not done an outfit post in a little bit now, I have been in a little funk lately and the weather is not cooperating.  I forgot I took pictures the last time we had great weather on the weekend (2 weeks ago) during a family bbq.  You guys must think that I live in my leopard sneaks from Steve Madden (I promise I will give them a rest for the next outfit post) they are just that fabulous and when you have not 1 but 2 toddlers they are really just that convenient to wear and chase after them.  I am super excited about this week since my blog is turning 1 on the 28th!! I putting together a fun giveaway with some of my favorite things so stay tuned for that! Thanks for being a loyal City Hip in Country Zip reader and thanks for sticking by me while things get back to normal around here!!

Obsessed With My Leopard Sneaks!

Happy Monday Sweets!! How was everybody's weekend? Mine was great... we had such great weather I actually sat outside and soaked in some much needed vitamin D.  So if you follow me on instagram you know that I wore this outfit last Saturday (I forgot to do a post) and as you can see I am once again rocking my leopard sneaks from Steve Madden, I am completely obsessed!! I have worn them every weekend since I got them.  They are just so perfect for mommy on the go outfits they add that touch of effortless chic to every outfit.  What do you think about this sneaker trend?

Meet MagSoul!

Hey Loves!! Happy Thursday!! almost done with the work week and I am so glad because it has been a busy week.  And I am looking forward to the weekend to relax at home...

I bring to you MagSoul Shop this little boutique with lots of fabulous scarves and other goodies (think skirts) I first encountered MagSoul through social media, I made contact with her and we hit it off from the start she is so down to earth and such a talented woman, I knew right away that I wanted to work with her.  She agreed and here we are!!!  
This is Mags story:
In 2009, my sister sent me this little hair clip with a single spotted guinea feather on it. It was so beautiful. Back in those days, I hadn't found my fashion identity yet, so I was very into accessories. Plus accessories were what I could afford on a single mama budget. So I had this little hair clip, and I loved it. I also had a glue gun, and a serious broken heart, so I needed a hobby! I went out and bought some supplies and made a batch of hair clips using feathers and vintage brooches. I sold my first set at my friends boutique, Pollux.
Everything grew from there-all of my friends supported MagSoul from the beginning. A couple months later, we had a "debut party" and within a year, I was attending shows, markets, and my hair accessories and jewelry were being sold in five stores.
Flash forward to the end of 2012, we had moved from Colorado to  Hickory, and been there for a year. I had opened a small boutique, with the goal of always featuring handmade accessories. Having a brick and mortar shop is very hard (and very expensive!). It was always a struggle to find more than a couple local "makers" who were making on trend products.  Also, I really wanted more scarves for my shop, but had to spend my inventory dollars on clothes. So one night, I ran down to Hancocks and whipped up a batch of infinities...They sold out the next day. So I just kept making them. It has changed my business a lot, and brought me down paths I never saw coming. I have had to give up on certain things and push hard to achieve others. When my customers writes me to say they felt beautiful in something I made, that is everything to they feel in one of my creations! (it helps to use really soft fabrics ;)  

I just love her story, how through heart ache and pain she found her calling and has shined and succeeded at what she does which is making fabulous handmade scarves, skirt, turbans, etc... Her fabric is so buttery soft it just makes you feel warm and cozy while looking chic and fabulous at the same time, and the best part is the you will not break the bank because she has amazing prices.  Keep up with Mags on Instagram and Facebook because she always has exciting thing s going on.

For this outfit I am wearing MagSoul's triple infinity scarf what I love about this scarf if that you have 3 scarfs in one.  You can change it around to showcase a different part of the scarf with each outfit you wear. The material is just so soft it is like wearing an old t-shirt but obviously way cuter.   

Sweater: Old Navy, Jacket: c/o Conversation Pieces (here), Scarf: c/o MagSoul Shop (here), Pants: LEI via Walmart, Shoes: ebay (old), Sunnies: Ray-Ban

And I will leave you with a message from Mags: 

Fashion is for everyone, but unfortunately women do not always feel confident in the clothes, let alone their own skin- I would love to change that! If wearing a scarf makes you feel trendy, or if one of my skirts makes your curves look hot (because I don't use elastic!) then I am winning :)

My thoughts on this is to love who you are and don't give in to what society wants you to be, we as women have to empower each other not bring each other down.  Help one another because no one else will, we are women and we need to stick together.

The White Pant.... A Collaboration Story!

Hey Loves! today I am teaming up with fellow fashion blogger babe Altagracia from Inspire By Style to bring you this ootd on how we each style white pants for spring.  As we all know the white pant is here to stay for spring and summer so we are going to show you 2 ways how you can easily style them.  I was thinking when Altagracia first came to me with this idea that I was going to paired them with my floral top and blue heels.  But then I received my leopard sneakers from Steve Madden and I just new that I wanted to do a casual chic outfit instead.  So I paired my white skinny jean with a mint striped shirt and I threw on a dark wash denim jacket because let's face it it can still be chilly in the spring.  I absolutely love the way the outfit came together, I know that this can be an easy go to outfit for weekend casual chic look.  Can I also say that I am in love with my new leopard print sneakers!! They have quickly become my go to shoes in my closet, they are comfy and very easy to style to give any outfit a chic look.
Hola Amores! hoy estoy haciendo equipo con la fabulosa bloguera de moda Altagracia de Inspire By Style para mostrarles cómo usar pantalones blancos para la primavera. Como todos sabemos, el pantalón blanco está aquí para quedarse para la primavera y el verano por lo tanto le queríamos mostrar 2 maneras de cómo usted puede usar su pantalón blanco fácilmente.  Cuando Altagracia me escribió con la idea de hacer la colaboración yo ya tenia en mente usar una camisa con un estampado de flores y unos tacones azules.  Pero recibí mis zapatillas de leopardo de Steve Madden y cuando las vi cambie de idea y quería hacer un atuendo casual chic.  Así que combiné mi pantalón skinny blanco con una camisa de rayas en un color menta, me puse una chaqueta denim lavado oscuro, porque seamos sinceros, todavía puede ser frío en las mañana cuando estamos en primavera.  Me encanton con el resultado final de este atuendo, puedo decir que es algo que se pueden poner en el find de semana para un look casual y chic.  ¿También les puedo decir que estoy enamorada de mis nuevas zapatillas con el estampado de leopardo! Ellos se han convertido rápidamente en unos de mis favoritos zapatos en mi armario, son cómodos y bien fácil de combinar para darle un toque chic a tu atuendo.

Shirt/Camisa: Tienda Local, Pants/Pantalon: Jordache via Walmart (similar on sale), Jacket/Chaqueta: Finale (similar),Shoes/Zapatos: Steve Madden (here), Purse/Cartera: Nine West (love this one), Jewelry/Joyas: Piperlime & MK, Sunnies/Gafas: Ray-Ban

This lovely weather seen here is a far cry of what is going on today! Stay warm loves spring is almost here! 
Este clima lindo que ven en la foto, no es lo que esta pasando hoy! Mantengansen calentitos la primavera ya esta cerca!

Happy Saturday!! Since I slacked off this past week I come to you with a little outfit post.  When I received this scarf from MagSoul Shop I knew that wanted to pair it with stripes because there is something about that combo that I just absolutely love.  So I took out my favorite shirt from Conversation Pieces and my new green pants that I got for $7 bucks at Walmart! I just love this scarf the print is fabulous and the material is just to die for it's soft and stretchy very comfy, and the fact that it is an infinity scarf you can wear it short or long.  I am loving the way this outfit turned out.  What do you guys think?
