Hi friends –
I hope your week is going well. Patterns are in, be it squares, lines, polka dots, of graphics, they are everywhere. I usually wear sold colors, mostly because they look better on camera. On a personal basis, I prefer solids because I like sleek lines and classic styles. Plus they can be easier to mix and match, and make one look slimmer. Having said that, I have been incorporating more patterns into my wardrobe and having fun with it!
This dress is fun to wear – and probably one of the pieces with the boldest patterns in my closet! I can match it with different styles of shoes & jewelry, which is always a plus. In winter, I can wear it in with boots, or tights and booties.
The dress came with a wrap around belt made of the same material. For this look, I changed it up by adding a white belt, jade jewelry, & pewter heels.
Hope you like the look!
Do you have dresses with bold patterns? Or, do you wear solid colors more often?

Hope your week got off to a good start! This week started a little different because I had in interview to host & produce. Most of my shoots are held on Tuesday through Thursday, every once in a while we will shoot on a Friday. Our production crew prefers not to shoot on Mondays because we have multiple meetings at the start of the week and it is also a planning day for them. They also say that when we have a shoot on Monday morning, they spend part of their weekend thinking about the shoot. Hence, it takes some mental time away from enjoying their weekend with family. I agree, the same thing happens to me, but I am still ok with shooting on Mondays.
Anyway, to the outfit. My sister gave me this cute cardigan as one of my Christmas gifts and I still hadn’t worn it. It is so soft & comfortable to wear! Since winter is coming to an end, I decided to wear the sweater before the weather gets too warm. I wore it with a green skirt. To contrast, break the color, and add light, I wore a white tank top underneath and a white belt. I accessorized it with silver, to match the belt buckle. I received many compliments throughout my day, which is always nice!
The skirt seems to be stretching out & feels loose, so I may have to take it to the taylor soon.
Hope you like the look!
Do you have a bright colored skirt? How would you have matched the cardigan? I may also wear it with jeans, navy slacks, or white pants for a more casual look. I did consider wearing it with a red skirt…I may have to try that.
Best wishes for a great week! Make it a good one!
The weather got a bit warm during the day, so I simply wore the cardigan over my shoulders. I was wearing a smaller white tank top under the white top, to ensure it was thick enough – don’t want any see throughs 😉
Another lis to wear the cardigan over the shoulders and only button the top button.
It isn’t very visible here – I wear small clear rubber bands (for hair) over the end of the belt, to hold it in place and avoid the flap from being loose. It is challenging to find belts that fit around the waist, so I purchased a belt hole puncher and it works wonders! A very useful item!
Here’s how I wore it on the set for today’s interviews:

Hi friends – Hope you had a nice weekend!
Sometimes, you can find the cutest clothes at the places you least expect. A few months ago, while buying household items, I saw this cute blue & mint peplum top at Target, yes Target! Isn’t it cute? I was excited to finally wear it! It is peplum style, so it is flattering for all body types. I like the exposed zipper detail it has on the back, it adds a little edge to it. It has been hanging – unworn – in my closet for a few weeks because I had tried it on with different skirts and pants, but just couldn’t find the right bottom to wear it with. I recently bought this dark red pencil skirt at Macy’s, and voila, I had a skirt to wear with the blue peplum blouse. Of course being the practical dresser that I am, this red skirt is a classic style, which I will be wearing often and hopefully for years to come. I matched it with brick red belt, to accentuate my waist, and nude heels to elongate the legs. I opted for silver accessories since the belt has a silver buckle and the zipper on the back of the blouse is silver tone.
I wore this outfit for a Disneyland Resort interview I hosted for ABC10 and liked it so much that a week later I wore it to host an interview on Azteca San Diego regarding the San Diego Latino Film Festival. They are different stations, with different viewers and I was covering different topics, so I figured the viewers wouldn’t notice – I try to wear different outfits for interviews & shoots 😉 .
I wore a Tory Burch white cardigan sweater throughout the day since the air conditioning makes the station a bit cold. This outfit will be wonderful for the spring and summer. I can also see myself wearing it outside of work, maybe for a luncheon or baptism (there area few infants among my family and friends, so I have a few baptisms coming up).
Do you have any peplum tops? Do you have pencil skirts? What do you think of the red and blue combination?
Funny note: Last time I wore a red & blue outfit, granted both colors were a lot brighter than these, many women commented on how they liked the pop of the bright colors….on the other hand, the men (my husband included) said they were “superhero” colors, haha, guess it reminded them of Superman in his red & blue superhero suit. Funny how mens minds work differently than womens’!
How I wore it for work:
During the ABC 10 interview. – with Mickey Mouse and the Disneyland Resort team.
During the Azteca San Diego interview – with Ethan Van Thillo, from the San Diego Latino Film Festival.
Hi friends, we live in Southern California and are blessed with warm weather almost year round! There are only a few weeks in the winter season where we actually need to – and get to enjoy – wearing our boots and heavier coats. For the most part, in the winter Continue reading
