Cut-Off Denim Shorts w/ Chucks

Feliz Viernes! Happy Friday!

Hope you guys had a great week. I'm ecstatic for the three day weekend. Thank you Jesus! 
It was a rough week. 

Anyway, here is a look you guys rarely see on the blog. Obviously, I am a curvier woman and wearing shorts like this can be a challenge. A challenge because you don't want your butt cheeks coming out the back, you know? Well I found these shorts at F21 and I was super excited when I tried them on because they were just the right length. They cover everything that needs to be covered. 
Check out the look:
What am I wearing?
F21 tank and shorts. Chuck sneakers. Necklace: Stripe Clothing Co. Bracelet and earrings from HandM. Sun glasses: Urban Outfitters. 
I pray you all have a wonderful weekend! 

Love, 

Ivonne Stacy.

Blogger Problems + $17 #OOTD

Hello Hello!

I was viciously attacked when I wore this outfit! By what, you might be asking? Well, by those darn mosquitoes. Blogger problem number three hundred and sixty eight- those darn mosquitoes. I don't know why, but they love me. They adore me. I can't even be outside for a minute and I have at least three mosquito bites. The worst part is that the bites swell up like balloons. It looks horrendous.
Porque SeƱor?! 

Anyway, enough rambling about those blood suckers. Let's talk about this outfit. It's bright, it's fun and perfect for Summer. If I remember correctly, the skirt was about $12 bucks and the crop top was like $5 bucks. What! What! A whole outfit for $17.  You can't beat that. 
Check out the look: 
 What am I wearing? F21 skirt and crop top. Urbanog heels. 
I can't forget to talk about this purse. It's also from F21. I've been wanting a white purse for a while, but I was hesitant to buy one because I am a magnet to spills. Gosh, not only am I a mosquito magnet but now a spill magnet. I can never wear white. See this post here? That outfit didn't survive. I got make up on the skirt and ketchup on the top. Thank God for bleach. :) 
I've set a goal to keep this purse as white and clean as possible. I will keep you guys posted. 
I just realized, for blog purposes, I set my white bag on the floor! LOL! Don't worry no bag was harmed in the making of this photo. 
Please stay safe, enjoy your loved ones and see you next week. 
Have a great weekend.

SALSA {T U R Q U E S A}

Hello Lovelies, 

I've had writers block all morning. So, let me tell you a little bit about our new adventure. 

My husband and I have been taking Salsa lessons. It's definitely something new for us and challenging. Challenging because it's frigging hard and I am really impatient. I want my hubby to already be a pro, lol! I want him to be a leader and lead me. I've stepped on his shoes a few times, we always hit each others knees and we suck at all the turns. BUT with all the craziness and our sore toes, I LOVE it. Who ever thought Salsa would teach us to communicate better, have more patience with each other and be cohesive- one unit.
 Last night we learned a new turn and we practiced all night. My feet are killing me this morning! Hopefully soon, with more practice and my toes still in tact, we can boogie down on the dance floor. 
 Like it says in the bible "the two will become one flesh." Not only in life, but in Salsa dancing too. Lol! God knows what he's talking about :)
Tell me, have you guys ever taken any type of dance classes before??? 
Let me know in the comment section below. Don't be shy! I would love to know.
 I am wearing: F21 pleated skirt, HandM white crop top, turquoise necklace from eBay, Steve Madden leopard heels, and Aldo watch
As soon as I saw this skirt, I snatched it up! I didn't even look at the size or price. It was going to be MINE. Fortunately for me, it was only $22 and it was a Medium. We were meant to be.
(Gosh, I sound like a crazy lady, lol!)
Have a blessed day everyone. Thank you for stopping by! 

Love,

All White w/ a POP of Leopard

Hi Loves!

It's almost Friday :) Eeeeekkkk!

Let me tell you a little bit about my outfit chaos. I had no idea what to wear for the Gap event. No idea! I tried on five different outfits and my husband and mom were no help. They had different opinions about each outfit. So, I decided to go to bed and decide in the morning. I woke up in a monochromatic mood and went for all white with a pop of leopard. I didn't ask anyone for their opinion and kept it moving. Sometimes, it's better to just do what you feel is right.  
 What am I wearing? 
F21 cream crop top. Leopard heels from Steve Madden. Love Culture cream skirt. Aldo watch
I don't know if any of you noticed, but my hair is much lighter. Thank you Mellanie for my new locks! Check her out on IG: @HairbyMellanie.
I pray you all have a great weekend. Thanks Mom for taking my blog pics :)
