structured and grey

If there is one thing I will (from now on) suggest to someone who asks for fashion advice- well, even if they don't- is to own a cotton/polyester blazer! I, myself just realized I own three in grey, obviously different shades. I recommend looking for one that is structured and heather grey. Blazers are already a cool piece. They take an outfit 0 to 100 real quick (hmm I love Drake). Now even if you have a casual outfit or your work doesn't require you to get super dressed just adding a more relaxed blazer takes you places your coworkers have never been. They'll ask "from where?" trust me. That is when you grin with a feeling of awesomeness. Your response will be either "It was a gift" because you want to be the only cool dressed or "______ store" your a softie. My response depends on my mood and most importantly the person.

hair-stels for spring

You know, I've never been the type to do a crazy color with my hair. 1). I'm scared to do it and looking a like a major bean! 2). It's a little too wild for me. Yet, recently, I find myself  wondering what would I look like? Maybe I would look like a mermaid! Obviously a mexican mermaid, but nonetheless a mermaid! 

The ponder is real, so I felt like sharing!

Aggressively worn

Let me tell you a little story about this denim blue leather vest. So I was at Nordstrom Rack cursing through the clearance section. I saw this leather vest, picked it up but didn't think much of it (I'm not into vest but I really liked the length). I gave it a chance. Threw it in the basket. After all I wanted it to prove to me that vest can trusted.  Long story. 
As I was in the fitting room, I noticed a real cool pink/blue metallic lining in the inside of the vest. I was like WHOA! Stepped back, observed the actual vest as a whole- smelled like scrumptious leather, felt incredibly soft (baby-ass soft), and realized the price point originally $645 marked down to $39.90!!!! I was like "GINNNNNNNAAAAA"!!! Didn't even finish trying on the rest of my stuff. Practically ran to the register to pay. Maybe I was scared it wasn't real. It was! I won! You guys, I had the biggest grin on my face, I probably scared the cashier. I'm pretty positive standing in her shoes I looked extra creepy. But It was an incredible feeling. Have you ever felt that?

I must say, since then, the amount of times I have been wearing this vest is a little aggressive. I'm secretly hoping someone compliments me or gives me a comment so I can share my story.

Happy (early) Valentines Day!

Oh how I love Valentines day! It's one of my absolute favorite holidays. 
I can't tell you exactly why, but I just LOVE it! I'm starting to think its all the adorable décor. Like heart shaped pancakes, tons of flowers everywhere, organic rose water, pink colored pressed juice (PS check out my article on City Scout for the perfect vday gift featuring my favorite, Liquidology). 
 I almost want to buy those adorable valentines cards that we had to distribute as little kids during valentines class parties. You know like the mickey mouse, barbie, power ranger ones! Ringin' a bell? Anyway, I didn't buy them. Instead I bought balloons! 

Have a perfect Valentines Day! 
xoxo, Jac

stylish couples

Love is in the air! 
Aww how I love me a stylish couple! Don't you? It's like they are both definitely on the same page, vibing, having a good time. It's incredible. It almost feels like they know everyone is looking. People look and think "wow, they're perfect together" I know I sure do. 
So there's been a few times I purposely let my boo get ready first so I can either match him or compliment him. Sometimes it works out. When it does work I try to take pictures but he is the hardest person to try to get a photo out of. Annoying. How will we ever be one of these couples!?

Anyway here is a few of my favorite stylish couples.

México diary 2

Here are my final photos of my trip to México.
Warning: this post is longer than usual! 

 This last trip to México has to be one of the most memorable trips ever. I was able to experience a different México. I dont know if it was because I'm older or I actually went with a mission and a list, but it was absolutely beautiful. I am so mesmerized by the beauty, culture, architecture, and people. Just stunning! 
On my list:  Visit places I've never been.
 1. Guanajuato, Guanajuato. 
2. San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. 
Two of the most incredibly charming cities in México. It felt like I was in a romantic movie. 
Not to mention, the University in Guanajuato, GTO is perfect. It looks like a Gothic Cathedral! INCREDIBLE! Mind Blowing! The lucky B**** that get to roam the hallways to get to class...ugh. 
Then, San Miguel de Allende....OMG! perfect. I've never seen a city so put-together. Didn't even seem real. And the FOOOOD! Even my snack size Pringles were amazing! 
Anyway, I want to revisit but I feel like there is still so much of México I wish to explore. Next on my Mexican travel list: Queretaro, Oaxaca, Morelia, and Guadalajara. Oh and Cabo! 

San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato
