Hello lovelies!

Just a quick post, all the outfit details above. Not a whole lot to post right now, or not much new. Well I did
just start a new job! which I am excited about, not in fashion 😦 but for now I will settle for a job that pays my bills!
The top is new from topshop.. I love there tops!! all of them and I am just a little obsessed right now! yikes!! the only I don’t like from their itty bitty tops
is the too high prices for half a shirt >:/ but… I get over it! This particular top is a little short for my taste.. I ended up wearing a higher waist pant in the end

sorry no pics.. However if your okay with exposing a little belly then go for it. Oh by the way in case you need to know size reference, I am 5″2 and 1/2 🙂 and my torso is short and last but not least I bough a large.

On to the jeans.. these are wonderful and stretchy.. the thing great about their leggings is they don’t lose their shape, which is typically what us girls are looking for in a jean, am I right? couldn’t find these exact ones available but I posted some similar ones with link, just click on pic! The purse I wore, sorry not shown is black american apparel clutch that I have used before, see previous posts.

Until next time,

XOXO Sophia

Hi, I’m Melanie Cortez!
I am a freelance photographer and full-time college student based in Mesquite, TX. I was mentored by Dallas Morning News staff photographers in 2008. I have recently received my Associates in Arts with an Emphasis in Photography. I have photographed commercial work for local businesses. For the past couple of years, I have been a contributor for NeighborsGo, the community news operation of The Dallas Morning News. I am actively involved in my community. Throughout the school year, I speak to local high school journalism/photography students about art and photography.
I admire every detail in photography! I love to capture memories for others to cherish on paper. I absolutely adore the thought of producing photographs for clients knowing the photographs will become part of their family history’s keepsake for future generations to come.

Until next time!

xoxo Sophia

Love yourself as you are

I wanted to talk a little bit about confidence and loving yourself the way God made you. I know that even as a grown women there is so much out there telling that your not good enough and if you don’t look like this or have that, etc.. the list goes on. And I know what I went through as a young girl, trying to find my place, being picked on and well really being a ugly duckling. I think knowing who you are is very important, loving yourself even as that ugly duckling. God makes no mistakes, remember that. I struggled with having a big nose, big eyebrows and HUGE glasses and I didn’t look like most of my peers in school. I was always heavier then my blue eyed, blonde haired friends. And that at times messed with my head, I always would gaze at the cheerleaders and how small they were and wished I too could be one of them. But since I was a little bigger, I had to settle for the stomp team. I look back and realize that it wasn’t really my weight that stopped me but ultimately it was myself and the limitations and parameters I had put on myself. You see I didn’t see myself as good as the other little girls and therefore I limited what I could be and do. I may get dressed up and love girly things but theres also a reality that I don’t get dressed up everyday, more like two times out of the week. And the other days I have sweats and tennis shoes on. So remember past the glitter you see on TV, Magazines or even blogs there is a real person who is just like the rest of us.

When I catch myself wanting to have vain things that have to do with outward appearance,like to have bigger hips, bigger boobs etc.. I remember that God makes no mistakes and therefore I decide to love myself the way he created me. I also remember that it is wrong to covet your neighbors (car, house, looks) it’s not wrong to look at someone and admire them but you have to remember that it should end there and to be happy/content with yourself first.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.-Psalm 139:14

Graphic tees and pullover

I am probably going to be one of those old folks who’s wearing graphic tee’s way past an age they should, I have come to accept that and will plan on it unless I feel different when I get there! Tees in general are just comfy, fun and my go to when I want to be comfy and still look cute. They always make me feel like I am a kid again? I know they are just graphic tee’s but I will always love them! I haven’t been buying as much lately so that is why I haven’t posted as much. I will have to re-invent old looks to be new! I am also so ready for FALL and have been buying pieces for the fall. I love the FALL it is always my favorite time of the year! So what do you guys think tee or not to tee??

Boyfriend Jeans

Todays look is a super comfy and relaxed everyday look, I have grown to love boyfriend jeans. It is somewhat different from my usual skinny jeans but I enjoy the change up on what I am used too.

What do you guys think of Boyfriend jeans? I wish more companies made them with all different materials and shapes, they usually run either too tight in the bottom or look overly big? They are somewhat limited now in the (level of cuteness) in my opinion. These are cool they have some little detailing in the back which I like.

Some of the celebs that I think that wear this trend really well are repeat offenders (in a good way) Rachel Bilson always looks super cute and pairs things together really well. As well as Katie Holmes, Gwen Stefani and Reese Witherspoon. There has to be that great mix/balance of masculinity and femininity and I think these girls usually pull it off really nicely.

I adore these floral trousers from zara, and thought this look is lovely with a peplum top, I tried it on with 4 tops actually and in the end the Teal top from zara won as the best look. I think the teal is a more relaxed look and I would wear the peplum for a more dressed up look. I posted some pics of some very similar looks below.  Hope you guys enjoy the look! xoxo Sophia

I love the way she mixes these jeans and creates a nice warm outfit for when its chilly out! im looking forward to re-creating a similar look!

Farmer Chic and Country Inspired Looks

 I know your probably thinking farmer chic, and do I really want to be farmer chic? Well if you love cute comfy clothing with a little twang and flair, then I say these pieces are a must and YES PLEASE!

There are many ways you can dress “farmer chic” originally farmers mostly used to wear denim pants or overalls, plaid shirts and a hat to protect them from the sun. Initially, jeans were simply sturdy trousers worn by workers , especially in the factories during World War II.Denim has been through many stages and has gone from being worn as work pants for workers in factories to making a debut with James Dean in the movie Rebel without a Cause. During those times this popularized denim amongst teens and young adults and was seen as a form of rebellion amongst the youth; because of this denim became restricted attire at most restaurants and theaters.

Fast forward to 2012 and denim is seen as attire that is socially acceptable in most settings and will even be worn at times in a more formal setting. Regardless of where denim has come from I must say I am thankful because farmer chic or not denim is one of my favorites and almost everyday staples!
