The Impeccable Pig & Pizza

Hello everyone!

What happens when you want to do a photo shoot outdoors, but then it rains? You take your photos indoors instead and just make due with your surroundings!

The other day my boyfriend and I went to go eat some pizza. The original pizza place we went to was unexpectantly closed, so we went to the nearest pizza place instead. We ended up being the only people there and coincidentally, my outfit kind of blended in with the color scheme of the restaurant! This is what happened.

Pizza

Did not expect a photo shoot to take place in a pizza place, but I honestly really liked the way that these photos came out because the complimented the outfit very well.

So let me tell you the outfit details. I know I usually save outfit details on my Instagram only, but today I am going to tell you right now since it will explain the title. The Impeccable Pig is actually the name of the store that I got this romper from! It is a strapless romper that originally comes with a tie that matches the print of the romper. I made this romper my own by tieing a red ribbon around my waist so the roses could stand out and added a short sleeved button-up shirt from Charlotte Russe to wear over it.

I bought this romper when the store had their big $12 sale and as of now, this is the only purchase I have bought from this store but I hope to change that!

I was very satisfied with my first purchase from The Impeccable Pig. I loved that this romper didn’t have super short shorts and was a respectable length. I also loved that it wasn’t super thin or see-through and that I can wear it in so many different ways!

Go check out The Impeccable Pig’s Instagram account or website if you are interested in their store. They have some pretty cute items! Link for their website is below!

I hope you all liked these photos and will take some time to check out The Impeccable Pig to tell me what you think or if you have bought anything from this store.

Enjoy some pizza and stay stylish!

What The Rain Told Me

Hello everyone! As you know from yesterday’s post, it was raining here in my hometown. I left out some details of the significance of the rainy weather so let me explain by saying this first, it stormed so badly in my area that I was only at work for an hour before everyone was sent home due to a bug power outage. The rain came in with a bang and caused flooding, many accidents, power outages, stalled cars, lightning shows, gusts of raging wind and panic to a lot of people who were out and about or watching the news at home. Eventually the rain did stop in the evening, but man was it scary Monday morning.

I never saw this storm coming. Never heard form anywhere that there was a chance of rain or anything like that so I was definitely taken off guard. Secondly, the rain washed away a lot of filth. The plants are standing tall and bright now and the streets in the neighborhoods look brand new. Whatever bird poop was on my car prior to the storm was long gone and when the sun finally peeked out, it was like a different place than before. This got me thinking of my how much my soul could use a bit of cleansing.

Lessonsbyrain

 

I had school, work, my fashion endeavor, my fitness journey and social life all over the place and organization was non-existent. I am going to really try to be more consistent and to be honest, I really enjoy blogging at night before bed because it reminds me of how I used to write in my diary, but once school starts, I am not sure if anyone is going to stay up to read my blog. I can still post in the evening, but it would probably be at 9 p.m. which I believe is a respectable hour.

Speaking of consistency, I want to transform my Instagram into a set theme or pattern instead of posting random things all the time. I have been YouTubing videos on how to edit photos, how to pose, how to set a theme, how to view grids and all sorts of things. I am able to dive deeper into this now that I finished my summer courses! I took two classes and gave it my best shot and thankfully came out with passing grades in both classes. I owe it to myself these next two weeks to put myself first now and focus wholeheartedly on my blog and on my Instagram and of course taking some fashion photos for you all.

So how does any of this relate to the rain we had over here?

Well for starters, the rain was pretty scary at first and things got pretty ugly. I felt this way when I started this blog and my Instagram account. I found myself doing the first photo shoot and felt kinda silly posing in a park. I honestly felt overwhelmed and tired afterwards. Overwhelmed and tired were feelings that I got know a bit too much this summer. Now that I do not have to worry about going to school, some weight has been taken off my shoulders.

Secondly, the rain went all out at first and flooded everything, but after a while it was more steady. This is how I feel about the way my Instagram account is. I uploaded about four photos the first day I created my Instagram which was June 4, 2017. I also posted about three photos a day which was super tiring and an unrealistic expectation of myself. Now I try to post one photo a day and sometimes two. Either way, I don’t want it all to be revolving around the same shoot because I don’t want to annoy followers with the same kind of photos over and over again.

Lastly, the rain nourished everything around it in a way that no human simply can’t do by themselves. This taught me that I am going to need help from others if I really want my fashion endeavor to be a success. I am a very independent person and I hate asking for help, but I need it. I can only take so many good photos of myself, by myself. It helps when someone can take your photo. Also, I cant be the only follower to my fashion account and expect people to get tips and outfit inspiration. I am seriously nothing without any of my followers so I will end this blog by telling you all thank you again for becoming a part of my fashion family and following my Instagram account or blog right here on WordPress. Your support means everything to me and I always try to be as interactive with you all as much as possible, so don’t be a stranger, say hi and comment once in a while on here or on my Instagram. I love hearing from you all.

Think about what it is you really want and just go for it! But remember to stay stylish while you are out there working for what you want!

My Favorite Long Earrings

Can we talk about jewelry in a fun and non-controversial way now? Great!

I got a second ear piercing about three weeks ago and it has reminded me of how fun it is to wear earrings and jewelry in general. Although I am not a simple jeans and t-shirt girl, I can easily make a simple look my own when I have the right jewelry! Today I am going to show my favorite long earrings that I own. I was supposed to pick my top 5, but I hope you are all okay with seeing my top 6 instead!

I am going to start things off with a pair of earrings that have my favorite color: RED!

These were handmade from a lady who sells jewelry. She had made these earrings to sell at a yard sale in order to make extra money. I am wearing them in the images below!

How fun are these?! I bet I can make more like these if I went to the craft store! I really love the fuchsia pink color and the gold. these colors compliment each other well and I think that they are perfect earrings to wear in the summer! No more boring jewelry!

What Happened Yesterday?

Hello everyone. I woke up this morning in a panic when I realized I forgot to blog!

Fear not, I will explain my whereabouts. For those of you who haven’t noticed yet, if you see the name Andrew in the comments section sometimes, he is my boyfriend. On top of that, he is the lead guitarist in a local band here in San Antonio, TX named Like A Sparrow. They had a show last night at Brick at Bluestar along with some other local artist. I went out to support him and cam back home pretty late last night.

I took some pictures of the band from last night and refrained from taking any pictures of myself since yesterday was all about my love and the band. I was going to dress up really nice, but I wore the band’s t-shirt instead. I have to support the band!

The front man of this band is actually my friend Jonathan who got married about three weeks ago! This was the first time I got to see him and his wife since the wedding day. Other than supporting local music and reuniting with some friends, I was constantly filming using Insta-stories which used up most of my phone’s battery. If you are curious to know how my boyfriends band sounds, I really recommend for you to go to my Instagram and check it out. I unfortunately didn’t film aside from Instagram.

Like A Sparrow has released their single “Smile” which is available now to purchase and download online! Give it a listen and remember to support local music and stay stylish!

Like A Sparrow also has their own Instagram account. Follow them for better images from last night and updates! Their Instagram is @likeasparrowband

If you like the other artist from my Instagram stories, you can find them on Instagram too @_ajvibes and @c.rose_95 and @brvndonheinzz_

Check out the music video by C. Rose named “I-35” too if you can! You can find it on YouTube!

 

Back In Black

Finally! I have been able to blog at an earlier time today! Is everyone’s week going by fast? Mines either.

It’s actually crunch time right now for me and those who may be taking summer classes. I am drowning in homework and am trying to remember every single deadline and of course, work is also picking up as we get closer to the fall semester. I feel like I’ve been constantly talking and thinking about school, but that’s because school is pretty much my life right now. I don’t see anything wrong with that personally, but I will admit that I am really looking forward to my two weeks off. Yeah, unlike two months off, I only really got two weeks off. This is okay, hard work pays off and I cannot wait to get that degree!

Who knew that my campus would be a great place to take some fashion photos? Honestly, this is the last place I would have gone, but since my boyfriend and I went on a random day at a random time, it was pretty nice to take pictures there! Oh, and my outfit was black. Picture of my outfit is in the image below.

Remember that you can always find outfit details on my Instagram account! Give me a follow so I can reach my next goal of 150 followers!

Back in Black Outfit Closeup

Did you know that you can pretty much dress up a pair of shorts with a nice blouse and jewelry? Shoes can also transform an outfit from looking casual to dressed up. If you do not want to look too casual or over-dressed this semester, boots are always the best shoes to wear because they are super versatile and won’t hurt your feet when you walk all over campus.

Back in Black

I think that the most important rule about wearing black is that your outfit does not have to be boring if you stick to this neutral color or any neutral color for that matter! Any time I like any black clothing, it is because it has its own uniqueness to it. The shoes for example have a jeweled design in the front. The blouse has ruffles and lace detail while the shorts have the white polka-dots to help the outfit come together without overpowering or blending in too much. Let me know what you guys think about this outfit and if you can, check out the picture that Target shared from my Instagram account! Link to see it is going to be right below this sentence.

Have a great day and make sure you go to my Instagram tonight to see the woman who helped inspire me to wear this black outfit! Stay stylish everyone!

 

Fall Semester is 1 Month From Now!

Hold up, retail stores….what do you mean back-to-school? Some of us haven’t even left school because we take summer classes! Anyways, today it hit me when I realized that one month from today starts the fall semester for some of us. Some people may have an earlier or later date, but either way, it’s coming for all of us! The summer heat may be increasing, but starting next week there will be some changes in my schedule since my work schedule is going back to its fall hours and my summer 2 class is getting more challenging and coming to an end in 2 weeks. I will have to adapt to a new schedule which is not always easy. I am still new to being a fashion blogger so I am going to see how I balance school, work, social life, family and fashion blogging. No worries, I swear I am not going to disappear. If I do not post on here a day or two, you can always follow me on my Instagram account alamocitysara to follow me on a more daily basis.

Back To School

As I look ahead I am really trying to consider what is and what is not practical of me to wear as I go back to school. I will find myself walking all over the place. I am going to have to find outfits that are going to be appropriate for work, but also cute enough for school. Some days I will have spare time to go home and change into something more comfortable, but I know that it is more of a hassle. The truth is that college students will always find themselves hauling ass one way or another, but that doesn’t mean that I should at least look great while doing it! I wish I had a school locker as big as this storage door full of clothes to change into!

Back to school 2

Another huge deal for me this fall semester is that my boyfriend is going to be going to the same school as me! Ever since we dated, we have always gone to different school and have had to put in extra time to see each other which got exhausting. I’m really looking forward to carpooling and being on campus together. I know that my plate is going to be full, but I know that what doesn’t kill me will definitely make me stronger. Before I can truly get excited for the fall semester, I have to finish and pass my summer 2 class that I am currently taking. Wish me luck everyone!

As always, have a great night and stay stylish!

 

Style Inspiration

Today at work I am experiencing that very slow and boring hour that is just completely dragging itself. Normally when this happens, I begin to online shop or look up some style inspiration on Google images. This leads me to today’s topic which revolve around my top 3 style inspiration women who I am head over heels with their style.

My first woman is the girlfriend of video game commentator YouTube star Pewdiepie and her name is Marzia Bisognin. She also has a YouTube channel of her known which is under ‘Marzia’ if you are interested in subscribing to her channel. On that channel you will find fashion hauls, makeup tutorials, some diy projects, videos of both her and Felix (Pewdiepie) playing video games or answering questions, and even some VLOGs. Marzia even has her own clothing line and it kills me to admit that I have not yet purchased anything from her line yet. Things sell out super fast everyone!

So here is the first outfit I chose that Marzia is wearing and I picked this one because I can re-create this look with the clothes I already have in my closet.

I have a printed skirt similar to this, but with a different color scheme and a solid long sleeve sweater and tons of beanies. I really think that this outfit says ‘fun’ all over it and it really gives me that bubbly feeling when I am looking at it. Plus, I love skirts!

 

 

 

My second outfit that I chose from Marzia is one that I think is very beautiful, but that I am a bit intimidated to try out because I have always been scared to wear white pants.

Style Inspo person 1 image 3

I think that this outfit is so cool and chic though! The white ruffle that the pants have in the front add interest to the simple outfit and Marzia paired it with a black long sleeve top, black platform pumps and a black hat. In my opinion you can never go wrong with black and white, but at the same time, it is the little details that make outfits like this interesting such as the ruffle detail and hat.

Last but not least on Marzia is another pant look, but this time, more colorful.

Style inspo person 1 The color scheme of this outfit make me think of the Fall season which leads me to thinking about going back to school. ( I know I take summer classes and never take a break from school but you know what I mean!) This outfit can be worn to class or on a date. This is my favorite outfit on Marzia. Ever since she posted this outfit on her Instagram, I started to try to find similar apparel to recreate it.

My second woman is a model named Ines Steel who mainly posts on her Instagram account: Assassinofsteel which currently has 34.1K followers. If you are into some heavy metal and the more edgier styles, give her a follow! She also does photography and comes all the way from Barcelona!

This first outfit puts us back to black with some ripped knee denim, black sneakers, long and carefree hair, a band tee under a leather jacket with some shades. I have a very similar pair of jeans like hers that I got from the store Express. I recommend this store for their jeans. I know it may be pricey, but they have unique styles and great quality.

Style Inspo Person 2

What I love about this style is that not only does it give off a rocker chic vibe, but it also has a lot of fringe and Ines Steele wears a lot of red and black, my two favorite colors!20170717_161752[1]

20170717_163350[1]I picked this last outfit from Ines because it is the perfect outfit to wear to all the music festivals in the summer time.

She attends a lot of music festivals so she knows how to dress for these events. She tends to always wear some tights underneath her shorts and some bootie shoes when not wearing sneakers. She also never forgets those sunglasses at home. She honestly rocks any outfit that she puts on.

 

 

My third woman is known as a makeup guru YouTube star and is Carlibybel! She also has three Instagram accounts, including one that is dedicated to fashion which is known as thefashionbybel! I first started watching her videos when I was trying to figure out how to curl my hair using a straightener. She is a gorgeous woman and gives some of the best beauty advice. I love her fashion, but mainly her Fall/Winter looks.

The first look below starting from the left says Fall fashion to me. It has the brownish beige color to it and I love that both the bag and shoes have fringe detailing! High-waisted jeans are my go-to and are the only type of jeans I like to wear now-a-days. The best high waisted jeans are from Fashion Nova! They are so comfy. If you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend it!

20170717_174932[1]

The second look is another outfit that is also mainly black and white. I love black and white, I cannot help it. The ripped boyfriend jean is a look I like on other people but not on me. Carli is surprisingly only 5’2 just like me and although I believe boyfriend jeans only work on tall people, she looks really good in these jeans! She also paired them with some platformed boots. Perhaps this helped make this look work? Regardless, she is flawless.

Last but not least, can we talk about that beige, winter perfect outfit on the right she is wearing? I know for some of you this is still a Fall outfit, but believe me when I say that Texas winter is probably Fall weather for some of you. That beige trench coat looks so cozy! I am going to have to find myself one of those for the winter. Especially since winter time falls on my birthday and I should not have to sacrifice style just because it’s cold outside!

I hope you all loved these styles from 3 different women I look up to fashion wise. Feel free to tell me who inspires your fashion sense and if you also like these styles. Time to clock out now!
