Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month: Mexican Cultural​ Dress Edition

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

The Latin Community celebrates Hispanic Heritage evert September. In honor of Mexican Independence Day on September 16th, I wanted to share details on my story and this vibrant, colorful dress!

After an amazing and unforgettable summer vacation with my family, I’ve been waiting to share this gem I found in a market in Mexico! These dresses are very authentic. People wear them on a daily, especially the older women. It’s very traditional. My favorite part about it is that its a one size fits all! Mexican culture is about being bright and colorful and standing out.

My parents came here to give us, their 3 daughters a better future. I spent some time in México this summer and witnessed the blood, sweat, and tears people go through firsthand, on a daily. It’s not the safest in some places, but the PEOPLE make the culture what it is. Our people are about helping one another, they are humble, they are hard working and they absolutely love life through it all. Those same principles exist in my household to this very day. I carry the good morals with and in me in every area in life. Relationships, friendships, and business. Knowing where I came from and recognizing everything my parents and family have gone through to be here is what FUELS me. And I’m gonna do it all for them.

Te amo México! Mi tierra linda y querida!!!💚

Fall in Florida: Leather Vibes

Hello from the Sunshine State!

It’s Fall in Florida, so what better way to spend a beautiful afternoon than a historic local landmark that has been around for OVER 100 years! 112 to be specific – this village, known as Korheshan State Park was built in 1904 and is open to the public.

I had been here one other time prior to this day and knew I wanted to get some shots here. I wore a light leahter jacket I recently purchased at Burlington Coat Factory – over a lightweight scarlet colored tank top and purple skinny jeans along with some grey Juicy Couture booties from Kohl’s.

These photos were taken in actual homes where pioneers once lived.

Korheshan State park offers water activities such as kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing. This canal was the absolute most beautiful canal I’ve seen thats close to home.

Lets not forget the bamboo trees! They have a few miles worth of grounds with very tall bamboo trees. I was surprised to find such great places to shoot! If you are in the Estero, FL area…you may want to add this stop to your things to do list.

Hope you found this post helpful!

Until next time,

How To Wear a Bomber Jacket

bomber-jacket-12-2

You have to agree with me when I say all women love fall, mainly for the extra layers that are appropriate to spice up your wardrobe. No, I did not say pumpkin spice latte – focus!

A personal favorite piece of mine is the BOMBER JACKET. It gives a sporty and street style look that can be worn over your work out clothes or even a night out like I did. This one, in specific is by American Eagle ($70) – I actually got mine 40% off my shopping at Miromar Outlets.

I’ve wore it to a music festival, a casual Saturday morning and of course, happy hour! Thats the beauty of bomber jackets – they are appropriate to be worn for pretty much any occasion. Even a dress!

The rest of my #ootn is all from Miromar Outlets as well – where EVERY item purchased was on sale. For example, see these cropped jeggings I have on? Originally $50 – well, I got them 40% off. This Banana Republic velvet cami I’m wearing originally $68 had 50% off because I shopped at Banana’s Factory store. The bomber jacket could be considered a fun accessory to pair with just about anything you decide to wear for that day or night.

I’d love to know how you decide to wear yours! Feel free to use any of these photos as a guide. Follow my IG (monicapramos_) to see what I’ll be working on next 🙂 Now…off to Happy hour! Cheers!

 

 

 

Fall Fashion

It’s here! Fall is finally here in Florida. We got a cold front this weekend and visited a pumpkin patch so you know I had to pull out the fall wardrobe…so here’s what I whipped up.

My front keyhole bell sleeve top is from American Eagle ($40). This faded navy top is a go-t0 fall color. The long sleeves and floral add an extra touch especially with the keyhole bow in the front. My denim x midi shorts are also from AEO and can be found here ($50). So obsessed with AEO lately! I bought this #ootd from the one and only, Miromar Outlets of course.

I spent my weekend at my first corn maze with family & friends. We went on a hay ride and  pumpkin patched at Farmer Mikes in Bonita Springs, FL. Such a great spot for fall festivities in SWFL – kid friendly too! Hope you enjoyed this post.

Happy Fall!

Until next time,

Xoxo
