Keep Up, Don't Give Up.

Monday, September 29, 2014

Being the type of person that I am, I usually always have something to say; Words ARE important, and so is having a voice, and not everyone uses this to their advantage. Having said that, I absolutely love shirts like this, I am all about empowering others and surrounding myself by positive vibes. A message as simple as this can truly make and brighten someone's day. Words really have a powerful temperament towards people, it could either inspire them or crush their dreams..just like that;  so that is why I truly love what Le Motto stands for. Words can really uplift someones spirit when they need it the most. I feel that positivity and meaningful words are something so simple that could really make all the difference in the world. It is just like karma, whatever you do and whatever energy you feed will reciprocate back to you; at least I believe that. Also, the best part from purchasing one of these shirts is that they donate part of the profits to educational programs, their current one funds "The Bully Project", which educates parents, teens, from all over the world on how to deal with the epidemic of bullying. 

I decided to go simple and paired it with white shorts (YES, if you're wondering, I wear white after Labor Day..I'm a rebel !) and a little pop of Leopard print with the shoes, because leopard makes everything better ! lol .

Happy Hump Day ! :)

Wanted to share my favorite lipsticks at the moment. 
You can very easily transition these into Fall, and that's exactly why I love them!


This is for sure a "barbie pink". It is perfect !

A vivid matte fuschia; 
It kind of reminds me of "Up the Amp" by MAC as well :)


MAC in Pure Zen
This one is in Limited Edition packaging, 
BUT it is part of their permanent collection !

Proenza Schouler for MAC in "Wood Rose" 
This was limited Edition :( But I just had to include it !
It is a mauve-pink, and it's just beautiful !
It is one of my favorites!


MAC in  Ruby Woo
A timeless Retro-matte Red

Last Days Of Summer: Polished Stripes

Monday, September 22, 2014

Hi !
Ok so funny story behind this striped top. When I first received it in the mail, I was so disappointed because it is so unbelievably huge ! When I went to go exchange it for a smaller size, they didn't have anymore; so I decided to stay with it and work with it that I think about it, I am glad I did. LOL. you know, the last days of Summer are quickly approaching; even though here in Miami, it's Summer all year round! I envy you all that could really feel and see the seasons change where you live..haha :) Stripes to me are timeless and classic; I decided to pair the top with some high waisted shorts that have faded striped details. I really like the combination of the horizontal and vertical stripes here. I added some pearl bracelets and a shiny statement necklace that I feel really made everything come together! :)


Top - OldNavy
Shorts - Target (They're on sale !)
Sandals - JCPenney
Purse - Kate Spade via Sawgrass
Bracelets - Forever 21

Fall Vibes

Monday, September 15, 2014

Hi !
So I had been really wanting a pair of "boyfriend jeans" for quite some time now, and I was really happy when I found these ! :) They have just the right amount of subtle distress and the way they cuff at the end is just perfect ! I paired them with this loose-fitted blouse which I thought the colors were pretty appropriate ;) To pull this whole look off, I feel like the shoes really did that for me. Can you tell I love these shoes...haha ! They are both cute and comfortable, so it's just a win-win for me. I wore this out for to dinner for my brother's birthday this past weekend.

Top - Express (old) 
Boyfriend Jeans - Old Navy (exact pair and On Sale !)

Keeping Up With Estephanie: Red + White in "Paris"

Friday, September 12, 2014

Helloooo and HAPPY FRIDAY !!! :)
I hope everyone has been having a good week!  I'm already excited because it is the weekend!. LOL :) Anyways, I wanted to share an outfit of the day that I wore this past weekend for a little outing. Last Sunday, I went for a stroll at Lincoln Road Mall; which is basically an outside mall filled with amazing shopping. It is definitely a must-visit when in Miami. I decided to wear this little number and thank god I did! It was so unbelievably hot, I feel like I even got a tan, haha. I've been loving red + leopard print together, can you tell?! :)

My entire outfit is from JCPenney. (What a surprise) LOL.

Red blouse - MNG by Mango (similar here and here )
White Shorts - Arizona 
White Sandals - Call It Spring
Leopard print crossbody - Call It Spring (similar here and here)

This was the highlight of my day; Ever since I heard that Laduree opened a shop in Miami, I've been dying to visit. It is such a small and cute little shop, I fell in love. I finally got to try the famous macarons. I tried Vanilla (my fav) , Lemon, and Caramel. I hope one day soon I'll visit the one in Paris ;)

I hope this brighten your day in some way.
As always, thanks for reading. :)
