FFC: Day 3

Today's outfit features two cute little friends of mine! My owl ring, Hortance, and my owl necklace Gerard! (Yes, I name any jewelry that has faces!) 

Let me tell you why I LOVE jewelry from Body Central
  1. It is fabulous! They have such a wide variety! From  chic night life, causal, and dressy, to cute, dainty, and feminine! They literally have hundreds of pieces to choose from! 
  2. Like all Body Central products, they are are excellent quality! Not thin or flimsy, and they last! The pieces featured below I have had for a year or two! 
  3. And finally, your wallet will not go hungry! Generally, prices do not exceed 5 dollars, however, most of the time I go in all jewelry is on sale for 3.99! I even got Hortance on sale for .99! 

Not going to lie, I loved my outfit today! I am in love with this Chambray for JC Penny! It goes perfect with the polka dotted body con skirt also from JC Penny! 

The devils in the details! And these details are too legit to quit! ;P Yes, I went there... :)

This belt came with some shorts I got this summer. It cinches in my waist for a more polished look! 

In case you are wondering, I am indeed on a step stool! 

And one final touch! October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and so I will be wearing this pin! I will also be participating in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk! 

It's time women fight for women! You can help create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays! <3

Fashion Feature Challenge: Day 2

Okay, so I just spammed your blog feed! Sorry! But I must catch up! In case you did not see my previous post, I am doing a fashion challenge! It is to pick a brand or store and wear at least one piece each day for the month of October. I chose Body Central!

On to today's outfit! I've worn and blogged this outfit- a summer version- before.

The creepiest picture of my hand EVER! "Moss Have" by Sinful Colors.

Super comfy leopard mocs from Maurices

Random cluster of bracelets from all around! The turtle and dolphin bracelets are from Guatemala! :)

I LOVE this necklace! Also from Guatemala! 

Still trying to figure out how to take pictures sans tripod...

I love this Body Central top! It is loose and light, which is perfect for hot days. This piece goes perfectly from summer to fall, as well! Typically during the summer, I wear this top without a cami. Nothing wrong with showing a little extra skin! Because the sleeve openings are larger, I do wear a bandeau so as not to show my bra. Since today was chilly, I threw on a cami from Forever 21 under it. I think it goes well together! I really do love muted colors. :)

On a side note, here is a mini haul! I went to Walgreens and picked up a few tidbits... ;)

Elf Disney Villains collection! Evil Queen!
Sinful colors eyeliners
Wet and Wild lip gloss

Fashion Feature Challenge- October

Okay, so I have been MIA for so long! There are a number of reasons- final semester of college, graduate classes, and a personal crisis. I won't go into the details of any of them. But I am on the mend and so I feel I need to restart my life! Blogging and all! And to encourage this I am going to be having a mini-series! Please look forward to....

Fashion Feature Challenge: October! Featuring Body Central!

The premise of this and other blog posts during the month of October will be to feature at least one Body Central item each day. That's right! Lil Miss Latina is going to blog everyday! Or at least try.... ;)

So, while I am tripod-less, I probably won't be actually posting photos while wearing the outfits... I'm going to try and figure out a way to take pictures sans tripod and my usual photographer, my sister, but till then it will probably just be an overview of the outfit. Sorry! 

Top: JC Penny
Cami: Forever 21
Jeans: Aeropastale
Boots: Body Central

These boots are so comfortable!


Nail polish: Sinful Colors- Rain Storm

I took several pictures so you could really see the color. They are a dark brown and oh so comfy! You will definitely be seeing these throughout the month! I've worn them with so many outfits already! The sizing is also very typical to most shoes. I'm a size 7 in most shoes, and am here as well. The quality of the boots is very well done. Sometimes it's hard to find reasonably priced boots that are good quality, especially, when they are from a retailer who does not specialize in shoes,but these are just fab! They also had them in several other colors which I was tempted to splurge on.. all in due time I say! :)

While I wrote this post last night, my internet went out and I could not post it until today. Sorry!

Boys and Their Toys....

Scratch that! This is a FASHION blog!

Firstly, my apologies for my, what seems like forever, absence! I was going through a slight personal crisis, but, praise the Lord, oh my soulllllll...! I am all good now! :)

To start off my blog, I would like to note that, THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAD TO WRITE THIS. Darn, blogger not understanding that by backspace, I meant the letter and not the page! Does that ever happen to anyone else? :( Why do I never learn to save?!

Okay, now, on to the actual topic of this post. Guys wearing scarves. Believe it or not, there is actually a debate going on as I type, as to whether or not men should wear scarves. Now, we are all fashionistas here, and I would imagine all quite open to the ever evolving world of fashion and what it presents to us. However, I live in the Midwest. For those of you who do not know, we are not the go-to destination for anything fashion-related. 

I assume most of my readers are fairly open-minded when it comes to trends, alas, where I live people seem to be absolutely completely ridiculously  a bit close-minded when it comes to fashion. The ombre trend didn't even make much of an appearance! In hair or clothing! Which I think is sad, since its so cute! 

However, I digress. One of my friends on Facebook posted asking if people thought men should wear scarves- yay or nay? An absolutely overwhelming majority replied- NO! Well, let me just give you a few reasons why I say, HECK YES!

I could pretty much JUST leave this picture and I'd win the debate. BOOM. David Beckham is a huge fan of scarves!


Cheekbones + a scarf!!! Benedict Cumberbatch, ladies!

So this one isn't even fair. Asians look cute in anything! *jealous* Isn't he adorable?!

So now I post the same question- Guys in scarves? Yes? Or no? And not just in the winter time!

Sunday Stripes...

and fabulous future! 

Well the picnic is over for another year... last night was the final night of my town's annual founders' day picnic. I spent the evening walking around eating with my best friend, Frances. We talked and laughed and had a great time! (Even if it was ungodly hot outside!)

Walking around, seeing people we had known years ago, made Fran and I realize how much our lives have changed, as well as, glad to have outgrown and found life beyond our little hometown. While we, of course, still have ties to this town, and we won't forget where we called home for so long, we aren't letting small town mentality hinder our dreams. I'm very grateful to have been raised in such a small, safe town, but I also realize there is more out there for me. Country-raised. City-destined. :)

Now after my little shpeal  on small town life, I would like to apologize for not having any OoTD pictures from last evening. I really liked my outfit too! But my photographer aka my sister, had to work, and I feel very vain letting anyone else take pictures of me... But I will definitely be wearing the outfit again, and will get pictures! So until then, it'll just remain a secret! ;)

So here is my outfit today instead! :)

My wonderful bestie brought me this dress back from the Philippines! It love it!  


Bought this purse at Body Central on sale for $6.99! It's super cute and has so much room! 


If I look slightly... flushed... it's because, well, it's an inferno outside! Super hot... >:( Hence the flowy, light dress! All jewelry was high-jacked from my mama's closet! I get my fashion sense from her. :) And my dad's not too bad either! haha

Hope you all are having a great Sunday! Here's to a good week to follow! :)

Lace, Floral, and Fun....

I hope everyone is having a fabulous day! I'm back at my apartment for a couple days for work then I'll be headed back to my parents. Such I busy life I lead! haha just kidding. :)

Well this weekend is the annual founders day picnic in my hometown. For those of you not "in the know", that means a few things- 1) summer vacation is drawing to a close 2) the reunion of cliques that have been separated due to vacations, summer jobs, and camps of various sorts, and 3) the time to show off any tan, cute clothes, or boyfriend you may have acquired over the course of the summer.

Basically it's our town's version of the red carpet (except it's sticky pavement)- a place to see and be seen. 
The only reason I go anymore is for the food. I do not ride rides and the entertainment in the park has been the same since I was two. This year I went with my mom, sister, my oldest friend and her little girl. We ended up having a blast! I guess being around a young spirit makes you feel younger yourself! :)

Top from JC Penny, shorts from Gordmans, Sandals from New York and Company

I love this necklace from Forever 21!!

So many ruffles! 

We stared at the bunnies for quite some time :)

Someone got herself all chalked up! 

I hope everyone is having a good summer thus far! :)

Green with Glee...

No envy here! :)

This post will have three parts- a "where the heck have I been" part, a "hair update" part, and an "outfit of the day" part. Let us begin...

To start off, I have been basically living out of my suitcase for the past two weeks. As some of you read in my previous post, Boyfriend took me to see Big Time Rush! Well, after that, I went back to my apartment for three days to attend class, then Wednesday after class, I went back to Boyfriend's to set out for Tennessee the following morning. 

Since I plan to write a post solely on the trip, I will just quickly say that I had a wonderful time with Boyfriend, his family, and some of their amazing friends! :)

Now for part two. My hair. In yet, another post  I said that I was going to start a hair treatment that was supposed to grow out my hair fast. Well, I tried it, and I am quite pleased with the results. While I did not measure my hair before I started, I think it is safe to say it grew about two inches. Of course, I skipped two days of the treatment, and so my results may have not been as good as they could have. 

And finally, a quick outfit I just saw last night, that I forgot to post! I wore this outfit several weeks ago for church. :) I must say, I love the dress! Even if my sister says it makes me look like a mom! 


Dress and Belt from H&M, Ring from Claire's, and Nail Polish "Need a Refresh-Mint" from Wet 'n Wild

This evening I'll be going to the annual founder's day picnic in my hometown! Don't let the [!] fool you, I'm not really super excited, HOWEVER, they serve the best corndogs on earth! And for that, I am pumped! Look forward to some lifestyle photos and my OoTD! :)

You're the Only One That Rocks My World...

My Cover Girl. <3

As anyone who read my previous post knows, I had another one of my revitalizing "unplugged" weekends this past Friday-Sunday. (An "unplugged" weekend is basically any weekend I go to spend with Boyfriend and his family. While there, my phone gets hardly any reception, thus, I am unplugged from the online world. Which is really rather nice!) 

This weekend was an absolute joy!!! Not only did I get to spend time with Boyfriend, but I also got to see my favorite band- Big Time Rush!!! God bless my sweet beau for getting us tickets, driving there, sitting in rain, and enduring the entire concert, while I screamed and jumped and sang along like the fangirl I am! 

No worries, I thanked him over the huge screens that were there. :) So everyone could see how darling he is! 

Because it was raining some during the opening acts, I didn't want to walk around with my camera and get it all wet. So I didn't get any pictures of Big Time Rush outfits- though, as you can imagine, there were plenty! So enjoy these few pictures of Little Miss Rachel Crow, Cody Simpson (who is now surprisingly... older.. than I remembered...), and, of course, my wonderful Big Time Rush. :) 

I did not take anywhere near the same amount of pictures I took the first time I saw Big Time Rush. I decided this time I was going to completely enjoy the show. And I did. With my best boy beside me and my superstars in front of me. :)

Finally, my outfit of the day! :) 

Yes, this weekend will go down in the record books as amazing. <3
