Hispanic Heritage Month with Macys.

HHMCOVER

I’m beyond proud to announce that I’ve partnered up with Macy*s to help celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month! I’m one of the influencers to celebrate such an important month for us hispanics/latinos as we tour a couple cities to visit Macys where we will discuss personal style, the importance of my heritage and what being a latina means to me.

There’s nothing in this world that I am more proud of than my heritage, my culture, our history, my country and of course being a Latina especially in the fashion industry. With México’s Independence Day just a few days before- September 16- I feel lucky to be able to focus on my heritage and share this special month with you all.

To kick off the first city, pop singer Jasmine V, former beauty editor Kika Rocha and myself will be at the Macys Bay Plaza in the Bronx, NYC. We will be discussing all things style, fashion, our heritage and the importance of being a latina.

I’d LOVE to meet you and have you get to know me better in person, so I invite you to come out tomorrow Friday to Bronx, NYC. Here are the details:

About a week ago, I showed you how I styled my favorite go-to skinny jeans in this post… kinda easy breezy with classic pieces like a white button up + oxfords.

For this week, I’m showing you how I styled this relaxed fit boyfriend jeans from Citizens of Humanity via Nordstrom. I always change between skinny and boyfriend because for me, they’re the most versatile kinda jeans to have. These boyfriend ones sit right on my hip so the slouchiness is extra comfy, which I love.

A little stripe top, pumps and pop of color never fails to make any boyfriend jeans look good… yes, even if your own boyfriends hates them.

Loving all the new stuff Nordstrom currently carries, with the hottest trends to carrying classic pieces too. Their denim selection however is my favorite because its a wide variety of styles and they have some of the best brands, you can’t beat that!

Don’t forget to pick up your favorite pair… especially since fall season is already here!

When I’m at the SJ office, I try to wear pieces that can take me from running errands to having an unexpected meeting. It’s important for me to stay comfortable throughout the day but also looking great in a pair of statement heels, flats or fancy clothing item.

I’m very aware of the kind of silhouettes that flatter my body, I know what works and what doesn’t. I try to stay away from body-con type items because 1) it’s not my style and 2) it’s not really for my body type. I stick to flowy items because it complements my slim frame. When I do wear body-con pieces, I always try to make it more “me” by adding a leather jacket over my shoulders or plaid shirt/denim jacket as a wrap around.

I normally don’t ever wear body-con skirts but the comfiness of this one, sold me. I managed to make it more casual and added my own flavor by dressing it down with a simple tee and denim jacket. The fancy flats definitely added that extra oomph!

Are there any specific styling tricks you’d like for me to post about? Or maybe, my wardrobe essentials picks?  How to style a certain item a couple of ways? beauty routine? etc. let me know in the comment section below what YOU want to know and would like to see on SJ! I’m more than happy and excited to make a post dedicated to just that!
