Whoot! I’m officially flu free! That stuff was no joke. Besides being sick I’ve been getting into the hang of my new job as a patient registration clerk at a hospital which I actually love because I like meeting new people! I think the biggest change for me since starting is having little to no time to do fun things like hanging out with friends and doing cool stuff like write blogs That’s what I miss most! We’ve also been keeping busy with church small groups and family outings!
Ok now for the fun part of this blog! LOL! If you couldn’t tell already from my last post, I’m starting to embrace wearing dresses a little more. I especially love pairing dresses with tights or leggings. To me its one of the simplest ways to look stylish and chic with little effort! This dress is one I picked up from H&M and I think the leggings are from there too! With Spring right around the corner I cant wait to embrace this dress obsession of mine even more!
My birthday is tomorrow and I’m already starting to think of what I will wear for my birthday celebration! Maybe another dress? Whatever I pick I promise to post pics of my bday outfit soon!
When I bought this dress I had no idea there were pockets in it! Score!
When wearing a dress with leggings the first rule of thumb I go by is if the dress covers my butt and my crotch! It makes me cringe to see girls wearing short tops with leggings! No just no!
The boots have been with me for awhile! The cutout detail around the ankle is definitely my favorite feature!
Shoes: Call it Spring
Sunglasses: Culture Of Cali(Coming again soon)
Bracelet: Culture Of Cali(Coming again soon)
Ok! Hopefully I will be able to write again soon guys!
Honestly when winter rolled around I knew I really wanted to start wearing more dresses but I was like eh, I’m not really a dress girl ya know? So I had to find a nice happy medium. Enter the sweater dress. I really like sweater dresses one because they keep you warm And two because they are cute without being little girl cutesie! They are the perfect balance of cute but classy. I got this one from Target probably from the clearance rack because even though I may go to Target for some laundry detergent and hangers I always find myself browsing the clearance racks. Target can do that to you. I paired it with some of my go to black booties from H&M and by Kenneth Cole bucket bag which I purchased from Ross. I wore some soups dark lipstick which I’m LOVING right now! Any way that’s my take on the sweater dress. Browse the pics below
Oh yeah those are my “in ears” hanging on my neck LOL!
Here’s the outfit low down:
If you like this I’ve found some things you might like as well!
Growing up I was always the rule follower. Expect for a stint in fourth grade when I acted out to make up for all the bullying I endured from the boys in my class. Besides fourth grade I had never been to the principles office, was very rarely late to classes and got good grades. I’ve always been pretty good.
But man oh man, these shirts with words on them, they are super cute! I cant help myself, I neeed more shirts with words on them! So when my friend Avelina gave me this one I was like, “Cool, I like gray”. LOL. I guess everyone of us has a little bit of a rebel within. Yep even you perfect people out there
I love a simple top or blouse because then you can play around and add detail to the rest of your outfit. For this one I added a leather jacket and moto boots to round it all out. This day was cold so I busted out the beanie too! Would you wear a shirt with a phrase or word on it?!

Happy New Year from your gal at USOS! Notice I’m beginning a brand new journey with my blog including a new theme and fresh content. Honestly the story behind this is that my previous page was hacked, BOO! I was a little bummed but even more bummed that the hosting company never contacted us back and therefore I lost all of my previous content, another bummer! So I decided that with the holidays coming I would take a little break and just start all over again. I knew I didn’t want to just give it up because of this big bump in the road so here I am starting anew. I’m ok with that though.
The holiday season was very busy but just as much as it was busy we were blessed. Kids school parties, church events and family gatherings took up most of the time I spent away from blogging! Being around family and friends during this time is a real blessing! I have no regrets about 2014, it was a great year! In 2015 I’ve decided to not sweat the small stuff, to breathe, to smell the roses and truly enjoy all that God has given me. I want to blog more. I want to sing more. I want to grow as a better wife and mother. I want to make lasting friendships. I want to grow in God. I’m hoping to reach more people through this blog and I think I can do it!
Here are some of the moments captured recently! (most of which are photos captured on my phone)
