THE PERFECT PAIR: RIPPED JEANS AND A BODYSUIT

 

These jeans…too much? I LOVE EM. I think every gal should have some crazy denim’s like this in their closet. Not only do they make a statement on your bold personality but they are also so fun and look super trendy at the same time.

I like to compare this style to Khloe Kardashian’s. I think she has the best style out of the bunch. Or at least the most relevant to my personal wardrobe. It’s not necessary to spend an arm and a leg to replicate the same look because let’s face it, most of us girls hardly wear things more than once.

Jeans like this make you feel some time if way. An idgaf what you think about these jeans cause I like them sort of attitude. That’s how I feel at least.

This entire look is brought to you by Forever 21. The bodysuit, the jeans, and the transparent heels. All under $100.

I hope you enjoyed this outfit! Please follow me on Instagram for sneak peeks of my upcoming looks! @monicapramos_

Until next time my loves!

HOW TO PAIR SNEAKERS & DRESSES

SNEAKERS & DRESSES

 

Sneakers and dresses are my absolute FAVORITE ootd. Don’t get me wrong, I love to dress up in heels and get all dolled up…or on the other hand, I could completely bum it out and be in slides and sweatpants all.day.long.

But when it comes to dresses and sneakers? UGH! It’s truly the best of both worlds. Not too girly, no too tomboy – just the perfect mix. I could wear this on date night, a day out or if I’m traveling! It’s the ultimate comfort-chic!

These sneakers were bought in Mexico, I’ve never seen anything like them which is why I love them! This dress was bought at Papaya 🙂

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!!!💚

Kim Kardashian West Inspired Look: A Business Casual OOTD

Many women in the workplace nowadays have not explored the freedom they have to make statements with simply, their attire. So I wanted to share this $40 look with you!

This outfit is probably one of my favorites I’ve ever put together. It’s elegant, modest, stylish AND its professional, depending on what you do. I, for example, run my own business which requires me to attend events where I need to dress up. I never question nor think twice whether I should wear something too “out there.” I just wear it.

Why you may ask? Well first, I will always and forever love fashion. I will always stay true to myself and never change my look for an occasion because of what others will think. I feel that’s what makes one different!

I wore this open-silk skirt from Forever 21 ($20) for an all-day event I did with my local newspaper and USA Today. I wanted to look professional, yet chic…so I paired it with a white long sleeved shirt with minimal details, the ruffles on the shoulders ($20).

I encourage you to be bold, make a statement and most importantly, be you! I will be dedicating a full blog post to my day with the media so please stay tuned! Follow me on Instagram: @monicapramos_

 

 

Rainy Day Outfit: Tomboy Edition

Incase you haven’t heard, its been raining cats and dogs in Florida lately. Gray and gloomy skies often affect our moods and even our sense of style for the day. I like to take advantage of rainy days in sporty/tomboy-ish attire.

Believe it or not, ever since I was a little girl…my dad always encouraged my sisters and I to play sports, anything from soccer, beach soccer, volleyball and running. I think thats why I (low-key) still enjoy dressing down.

 

The Tomboy Rainy Day OOTD:

Black leggings are your starting point. Tights or workout pants? No one will ever know. Since I live in Florida, and since we’re days away from “officially” summer, we’re bound to hit some pretty high temperatures. You can find me in a sports bra and a cotton workout shirt. This one in particular was about $15 from Old Navy! They have the CUTEST workout apparel.

I’ve been quite the sneaker head lately. I love the on-the-go state of mind and feeling. I especially hate the feeling of my feet wet in the middle of the day, so its always wise to wear anything but flip-flops. You may also be wondering, if you live in Florida, why are you wearing a jacket? Hello, the rain! 🙂 Be sure to have a jacket with a hoodie. Camo jackets are my absolute fav! They add so much texture to your outfit.

Dressing athletic has always been a preference of mine. I like the empowering feeling of getting things done that it gives me. Rain or shine.

I love knowing that although I’m a girly-girl, I have this other side to me that many people don’t know of. Which I love! If you’re the same, embrace it. Wanna know why? Because it just means we have the best of both worlds embedded IN us! Badass, and sweet.

So thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post and this outfit. If you’re not already following in me on Instagram, follow me here!

Peace, love and light, always.

Summer’s Go-To Trend: Rompers

Happy June! We have OFFICIALLY made it to halfway through the year, guys… The start to every new month gives me the best feeling about pretty much everything except Florida’s heat. That’s why you can find me in cotton made rompers at anytime I’m not at work.

Rompers are my FAVORITE because you can wear it to the beach as a cover-up, on a Saturday afternoon and even at night! Florida plays no games when it comes to heat and humidity which is why I chose this one by Forever 21. Its lightweight, sleeveless and has a striped print that never goes out of style – did I mention, comfortable? Wearing white is also always a good idea during summertime because it helps keeps you cool.

This month for me is a time for lots of planning. I have a few trips this summer/fall and I am very excited to share them with you all, so follow my Instagram @monicapramos_

Talk to you all soon!

Xoxo,

Hi there, friend! If this is your first time on my blog, WELCOME! 🙂 I love to write about personal growth, food, travel and of course, fashion.

Today’s look is one of my favorite this spring. You can’t go wrong with white, especially living in Florida, its sort of necessary in order to not melt 🙂 But I’m here to give you some tips and advice on wearing white-on-white. Denim is always in style, white jeans, however, are just DIVINE. Its the prefect day to night piece for spring so make sure to get you a pair!

I purchased both my blouse and jeans at Papaya. I love Papaya so much because the clothes is very inexpensive, the clothes are always trendy and since fashion is always evolving…you won’t feel guilty about donating your inexpensive clothes during your next spring closet cleaning.

Spring’s Must Have: Florals, Cold Shoulder’s & Ruffles

Runways at Spring Fashion Week this year were an uproar of floral prints, dreamy pastel shades, layered with ruffles and topped off with a cold shoulder cut. That’s precisely what this jumpsuit has going on.

Let me start my welcoming you to my page and mentioning that jumpsuit’s are for everyone no matter your height or body shape . They just look so flattering. My personal take on jumpsuit’s is that it is a statement to the world that, “Yes, I take my appearance seriously, but let’s make it simple…and comfortable.” All that requires is a good print a good cut and of course, some ruffles.

This particular jumpsuit is designed by J by J.O.A and was a gem found at Target. I can’t tell you how I lit up when I laid my eyes on it. Now, when looking for the link…after not finding it, my first thought is that Target is sold out – I was only able to find the link to a floral dress with the same print, here. I did a little digging and found another design in the same print on Revolve, here.

I am so upset to not have the exact link, I had so many compliments on this find! So sorry guys, I let you all down. You can always follow me on Instagram, HERE to follow my hunt for styles, though! See you there 🙂

Bloom, baby bloom!

“SPRING: A lovely reminder of how beautiful change can be…”

How’s 2017 going for you so far – everything running smooth and as planned? If so, I congratulate you! Sticking to a resolution is not easy, or change for that matter. That hasn’t really been the case for me and I think its important for me to keep my supporters in the loop of not only my triumphs but my downfalls and how I overcome life’s setbacks.

As many of you may understand, maintaining a social media presence is WORK -especially being a content creator in the online world. Being a blogger, it almost feels as if you’re expected to come up with fresh new ideas to share on a daily…thats just the business of it. HOWEVER… life happens, stuff comes up and not everything may go as planned. Unfortunately, moments like these for many of us result in being discouraged, unmotivated and feeling like you fell off the wagon.

“The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” 

One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. From a breakup,  experiencing a terrible eye opening situation at my previous employer to finally finding a better opportunity for my career all in first quarter…this year has been no walk in the park by any means.

I’ve done a lot of letting go of negative situations in my life lately which is why this stressful period has touched me so deeply. Here’s what I have learned so far this year:

  1. I realized that a successful relationship requires equal effort on both behalf’s. You can’t have someone love you more than you love them because thats being unfair to them and vice versa. When two people give effortlessly without expecting back, that’s when there is something special and one of a kind. Giving is such a wonderful thing, especially when it comes to a significant other…not sure why nowadays its all about being selfish and only thinking about “me, me, and me.” So, loving oneself sometimes means that if that is not returned, when given, its time to walk and not look back.
  2. (It is not easy to say this, because I know how certain things to share online are touchy subjects…but this particular issue would not be tolerated by anyone) no job on earth is worth having when you are mistreated, deceived and humiliated. It’s sad to say that women in the workplace to this day still feel like their voice can’t be heard even when seeking to resolve a problem effecting others. That was another negative I didn’t think twice to let go of.
  3. The only hope to look forward to is knowing something good always comes out of a a setback. I found a great opportunity that opened its doors to me, a PR and marketing firm that will help me learn and grow as a blogger.

I am not ashamed to express what I’m going through, because I care far more about my story inspiring or encouraging someone else. Besides, if you’re here to judge what are you doing here anyway.

“Wherever life takes you, bloom with grace.”

During this time, what helps to pick myself up is to think about what I’ve accomplished so far and what my next steps will be towards my goals. I give myself many, many, many pep-talks and tend to write a lot more often. It is then when I take a step back, observe and come up with the best approach to a situation.

What helps me a lot, is to take time off social media, spend quality time with friends and family, and travel! I love going to the other coast to Miami even if its just for the day – one of my favorite spots is the Wynwood Art District. I love art, photography, fashion and to be around such an area with such inspiration always motivates me.

Since its springtime in Florida, I like to stick to rompers. They’re effortless, cute, and comfortable! I found this one by MinkPink at Saks Off Fifth at Miramar Outlets (my favorite outlet mall in Florida!)

I know this post has been probably my longest, so I’ll leave you with this:  Finding the beauty in adversity is a beautiful thing. Bloom. Grow. Blossom. It’s your time to bloom. Be what YOU want to be…be with who YOU want to be…and most of all, be happy because life is unexpected.

Love you guys!!
