Boys & Pocket Squares, Girls & Pocket Bow

Hello lovelies,

How did April manage to sneak up on us?!? But I am super excited for warmer weather and longer days full of sunshine. We have had so much rain this year and are beating all LA precipitation records while staying in low temperature ranges, so I am ready for the sun to make its more permanent appearance.

Speaking of spring vibes this Bow Detail Tweed Tunic Dress from SHEIN is totally speaking my language and helping me welcome the spring in a classic yet fresh style. And yes here is where this post’s title comes into play–boys spruce up their suit pockets by adding a pocket square, but guess what? Us girls can have our own twist on that brilliant idea and use a set of bows to dress up our pockets!! Doesn’t this dress do so in the most subtle, yet noticeable way? By adding the black bow to the top of the pockets and black hemming the sleeves and neckline as well, this simple white dress turns into a feminine yet edgy piece which speaks volumes with simple black and white statements.

Just a few more details on this tunic dress that I love: it is made out of a tweed material which is 80% cotton–the perfect fabric for spring–breathable, yet warm. It is versatile due to its tunic type which allows you to wear it with some leggings on a cooler day. Another aspect that makes this tweed dress very wearable is the simplicity of colors which allow you to pretty much play with any color and pattern accessories. It is elegant and perfect for a day at the office or a date night with your sweetheart. Did I mention that it is only $24?! However if you use code Q2ootdinstyle for 15% off your SHEIN purchase and decrease that price.



Beach Curls with PYT 25mm Digital Curler

Hello gang,

HAPPY SPRING! I am so happy to have more sunshine and longer days. And with those comes my desire for days at the beach and hair that reminds me of those, so guess what?! I just partnered with Pretty Young Thing and tried out their 25mm Digital Curler! Check out the video below for more details. Enjoy 30% offย  your purchase from Pretty Young Thing with code MARIETA30 (valid from April 1 to May 1).

I also have to share the how fabulous their Savage Moisture Mask is!! I have now used it for three weeks and my hair feels so much silkier and healthier already–it looked amazing after the first wash actually! And it smells like Heaven too! I find that my hair responds super well to Argan oil and that is what is at the base of this product to deliver the shine and moisture your hair is crying out for–especially after the roughness of winter and before the harsher rays of the summer sun start working on it! You have my word for it–you would love the results!



Let me know what you think of my beach curls and if you have any questions on either product and I would gladly talk about both!

Love Always,


The Sharp Jumpsuit

Hello lovelies,

OK, Valentine’s day may be behind us, but I have to show you a jumpsuit I fell head over heels for and can’t wait to wear over and over… Meet the SHEIN Puff Sleeve Twist Front Wide Leg Tailored Jumpsuit! โค This piece radiated quiet confidence and hugs the body to perfection. The deep V neck, puff sleeves, and twist fabric detail bring the eye to the top of the jumpsuit, while the wide leg bottom compliments and allow the jumpsuit to shine with all it’s top glory. Although the fabric is 95% polyester, the material has some stretch and feels very soft against the skin, creating a feeling of comfort and ease. During cooler weather I always struggle to find suitable attire for going out for a cocktail or dancing. The maxi length and long sleeves make this jumpsuit perfect for a crispier night out. You can wear it with booties or heels, depending on how much you are willing to brave the cold, and it combines beautifully with a classy wool coat.

Have you purchased a jumpsuit lately? I have to say those and dresses are among my favorites articles of clothing to wear. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cozy & Cute

Hello lovelies,

I like being cozy any season, but there is something extra cozy that I look for in winter clothing–I desire that softness which keeps me warm, comfy and if it looks cute then, hey, I have a winner!! That is exactly how I feel about SHEIN’s High Neck Drawstring Waist Heather Knit Dress. The middy length and turtle neck provide essential coverage to keep you away from the frost biting ability of this season’s weather. The draw string waist adds definition to the smallest area of your body and the ruffled bottom adds femininity and character to this cozy piece. The burgundy color pulls you away from being stuck in the winter blacks (so guilty of that!!) and the pretty silhouette makes this dress perfect for a day in the office or a Sunday brunch with friends. Once I put the High Neck Drawstring Waist Heather Knit Dress on I didn’t really want to take it off–the cotton-polyester fabric is so soft that it feels like you are wearing your favorite joggers and top.

Have you peaked at what is new on the SHEIN website?! Has anything caught your eye? If so, dont forget to use coupon code Q1ootdinstyle15 for extra 15% off any purchase, valid now trough March 31th.

Leopard Print -From the Catwalks to the Globes

Hello lovelies,

Hope your weekend was restful and fun at the same time. I had the opportunity to spend it with a dear friend of mine and that was a treat! ๐Ÿ™‚

One trend that I noticed being back on the table this season is none other but the famous leopard print–it was all over the Spring/Summer 2019 catwalks from bold Saint Laurent bodysuits to silky, midi skirts by Burberry. Most recently we saw Anne Hathaway arrive to the 2019 Golden Globes looking fierce in an all-over leopard print ball gown by Elie Saab. Needless to say I got inspired to try the trend–to me leopard print is a combination of otherwise neutral colors that pack a beautifully mean punch of style into an outfit.

Sooooo, how did I get my leopard on? Well, you know I love dresses, so I opted out for the Tie Neck Leopard Print Ruffle Hem Dress. It combines two types of print – one on a smaller scale that trims the dress on the bottom, at the waist line, the neckline and the cuffs of the sleeves and a larger print which comprises the rest of the dress. I like the mixture of the two as they are placed strategically to add to the shape of this leopard print dress.

Burgundy and Cordouroy

Happy New Year, lovelies! โค

I hope Santa brought you the “magical pony” you desired and that 2019 would be filled with health, happiness, smiles, love, success, adventures, and contentment.

Aside from my magical pony Santa dropped off this awesome SHEIN Double Breasted Overlap Corduroy Dress for me! It is burgundy and pairs off perfectly with a white undershirt–think Santa was trying to drop me a hint to become one of his helpers? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just so it does not seem like I am late to the party, I decided to pair this chic corduroy dress with a black undershirt, black leggings, favorite booties and a black newspaper-boy hat. Doesn’t this ensemble spell simple, playful, stylish with a bit of French?!

The dress’ double breasted design, burgundy color and golden buttons give it a semi-formal flavor, while the corduroy fabric and front pockets bring out the casual, playful character of this piece. I find the dress “easy going”, yet with enough flavor to spice up an otherwise very basic black look.

Guess what? Santa dropped off something for you too: Q1ootdinstyle15 – use this code for 15% off your purchase from


appy new year once more, ladies and gents!

A Winter Must-Have

Hello everyone,

Are you ready for Christmas? Is it just around the corner and in an blink of an eye 2018 would come to a close. It is amazing how fast time flies the older one gets–let’s appreciate the last few days of the year and make sweet memories! ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of Christmas, this year I want to wear something different–something festive, yet not screaming HOLIDAYS, but making me feel like I am in the magic of a winter wonderland. When I laid my eyes on the SHEIN Whipstitch Trim Tweed Dress, I knew that was it!! The dress is not red or green, it is not plaid and does not have excessive sparkle, but is elegant and whimsical in a very classy manner. Tweed material is very appropriate for the season and the off white color makes me feel like a snow queen. I like the subtle trim details as well – introducing gold and black, which allow you to play with accessories in both of those colors. The sheath silhouette adds to the elegance of the dress and of course you know I am a fan of natural fabrics, so that fact that this dress is 80% cotton also had a pull on my heart. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you like the Whipstitch Trim Tweed Dress you can purchase it at 20% off by using the cupon code ootdi20, which you can actually use on any purchase from

One thing to keep in mind is that if you are tall (I am 5’9), you may choose to size up. I ordered a size Small and feel like the mama in me would have liked just a bit more length and width, hehe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What are you wearing for Christmas?

Love Always,


Street Smart

Hello lovelies,

How was your Thanksgiving? I hope filled with family fun, delicious treats, sweet memories and maybe some crazy-good shopping! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I tried to stay away from the stores, but managed to find this super cool and smart blazer from SHEIN and a pair of distressed denim from LOFT that put together make me feel SUPER “street smart”, hehe!

Why do I love this blazer:

  1. I am a natural fabric girl and this piece is 100% cotton, so it scored huge points in my books! It is soft and breathes with you.
  2. The cut, color, pattern, and length make it perfect for work and play. The navy and plaid pattern scream classy and smartly-dressed, but not stiff or stuffy manner. You can wear the SHEIN Double Breasted Notched Neck Plaid Blazer with a white or navy dress, or dark denim pants and it will carry you straight to the office. Combine it with a pair of distressed jeans and hang out looking cool at the neighborhood coffee shop or bar.
  3. It is such a steal at $25 and if you use code “ootdi20” you will receive additional 20% off your purchase from the US SHEIN website.

Drop me a line and let me know what you think about this outfit or tell me what is your favorite buy from this weekend, even if it was a present for someone else you are super excited to give. I got something for my dad and I am excited to have his Christmas present all set.

Love Always,


Salsa Queen

Hello lovelies,

Do you like Salsa dancing? I am a huge FAN and cannot wait to learn more steps and perhaps one day spin on the dance floor like those beautiful professionals can (yeah, a girl can dream, right?!?)

Well, when I saw the SHEIN Ruffle Cold Shoulder Layered Hem Dress, SALSA emerged in my head right away… It is sexy, yet not over-the-top, lets me feel like I am on fire in the coolest way possible, and makes me want to dance!! So let’s break this down:

“Sexy, yet not over-the-top”: The dress hugs your curves and has a cold-shoulder element, but is knee length allowing you to feel sexy without exposing too much leg or cleavage.

“On fire in the coolest way possible”: The burgundy red color and the sheath nature of the dress make you feel like an explosive powerhouse, yet one composed, beautiful and in control. ๐Ÿ™‚

“Makes me want to dance”: The ruffles around the hem and the shoulder detail add so much movement to the dress–it is like it was created to lead you to the dance floor!

Do you like the SHEIN Ruffle Cold Shoulder Layered Hem Dress!? Does she make YOU want to dance? Let me know in the comments below. USE CODE “ootdi20” FOR 20% OFF your Shein USA order.

Love Always,


Indian Summer

Hello lovelies,

Happy November! Hope this month is filled with warmth and tons of cozy family feels for all of you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Are you already in sweaters and planning Thanksgiving with your love gang?! I have to say “Yes!” to the later, but “NO” to the former as the city of Angels is still taken over by sunshine and high temperatures. Sure, it is a lot cooler in the mornings and evenings, but summer dresses are pretty much the ARTICLE to wear at lunchtime–yes an Indian Summer is upon us. As such I want to introduce you to my latest find–the SHEIN Self-Belted Button Up Dress.

This navy beauty is 100% cotton, soft and such a pleasure to wear. The cut of the dress is very flattering to your body–the belt adds waist definition and the buttons draw the eyes vertically and elongate the silhouette. Like most women, I love the fact that it has pockets. The dark blue color makes this dress jive with so many different accessory colors–white, red, gold, orange would all be perfect with it. I chose to accent the dress with gold as that is the hardware on my bag, the buttons on my denim blazer and shoes! If it is slighly cooler where you live think of the SHEIN Self-Belted Button Up Dress as your topical getaway find as it would be the perfect partner in crime on your visit to the Caribbean, Mexico, South America or Australia. You can use code ootdi20ย to get extra 20%off while shopping from the Shein USA Site!!!

Love Always,
