Happy Friday! I am loving this look! Doesn’t stripes and tribal go amazing together? I think so. I bought this jacket last year and totally forgot about it. That is until I was getting ready for my photo-shoot and started starring at my closet on what to put together and found it. You should of seen the look on my face when I saw it, haha seriously I’m a weirdo. I paired this jacket with a simple striped black and white dress (by the way you need to stop by Target I got this dress for $6). Seriously, this dress is so cozy and warm. When it starts to snow, there are so many ways of styling it for a cozy look. I am sure I will be posting it on Instagram on other ways of styling it soon. I also added white simple socks and black booties. I hope you loved this look as much as I did. Have an amazing Friday. A few of our friends from Washington are flying in this weekend so I’m excited to see and spend time with them. Have a great weekend.

Happy Tuesday! Hope your weekend was great. Mine was awesome except the cold weather and snow. I love Fall and Winter but not when its -2 outside and its too cold to even walk. My sister and her husband surprised me and came for a visit this weekend and we had a blast. We showed them around Denver and our favorite places to eat. We shopped and cuddled on the coach when it was too cold out watching Christmas movies. There is just something about Christmas that makes me feel like a kid so when it starts snowing here I automatically start listening to Christmas music and watch christmas movies till it stops snowing. We really wanted to take them to Strawberry Hot Springs but my sister is preggo so we couldn’t do much but we still really enjoyed their company. I was very sad it was such a short trip but I am so happy they came out. Back to the shoot. I love this laced top which I paired with some black skinny jeans that by the way I cut on the bottom because I am so short. I love them so much more now because I don’t have to roll them up. I also added cream socks and booties. For accersories I added this darling sunflower headband and some fun sunglasses. I am obsessing over sunglasses lately, I love having a few pairs because it makes your outfit so much more fun. Give it a try. :) I hope you enjoyed this look, Have a great rest of your Tuesday and see you soon.

Happy Friday! OMG Today is the happiest day of my life! lol My sister and her husband came to visit us from Portland for the weekend and I had no idea they planned this trip. Eeek! My hubby knew and kept this a secret from me. You should have seen the look on my face when they came out of the car. I literally almost passed out from excitement. I missed them like crazy! This weekend we will show them around Denver and drink lots of coffee till we pass out. lol Back to the shoot, I am wearing my favorite clothing from my favorite boutique I just recently discovered. Pureluxboutique.com in Denver CO has so much fun stuff and there prices are very affordable. Affordable and cute? Sign me up any day. :) I styled this sparkled grey tee with my favorite faux leather leggings. I can’t tell you how many pairs of leggings I purchased. They were all not what I thought they would be. Comfort with faux leggings are hard to find and these are just that. Whats even better is that they are only $18, so go do yourself a favor and get them. :) I also paired them with black booties, faux leather baseball cap and a fun clutch. I hope you enjoyed this look. Have an amazing weekend! I will keep you posted on all the adventures from this weekend with my sister and her hubby next week. Happy Friday!

Happy Wednesday! I have teamed up with Brittany from measureofattire.blogspot.com to show you how we styled this amazing warm cardigan. Brittany has such a cute style and is also a photographer, so check her page out and be sure to follow along her journey of fashion. I styled this burgendy cardigan with a plaid dress, polka dot tights, knee high boots, layered jewelry and a fur vest for a fun layering look. I love this fun outfit, its so comfy and still so adorable. I have also teamed up with chipandchisel.com and silvanoapparel.com to give you some discount codes. Chipandchisel.com has a ton of handmade jewlery like the initial necklace I am wearing up above and she is doing 20% off your entire purchase just use the code INSTALOVE.  Silvanoapperel.com has a ton of awesome watches and sunglasses I am obsessed with it all and he is doing 15% of your entire purchase with the code silvano15.  When you get a chance check them both out. Hope you have a great Wednesday be sure to check out how Brittany styled her cardigan (here). We got back last night from Winter Park where my husband had to do some work. It snowed like crazy and was freezing but we made the best out of it. I am not sure if I am quite ready for it to be freezing :( but I know its time and I am so grateful we had such an amazing long fall. Today is freezing also back in Denver and I hate driving in the snow, so I’m not sure if I will be going anywhere today unless I really need to. Have a great Wednesday.

Happy Thursday! I am currently obsessing over this fur coat. I love the color, how soft it is, oh and also how warm it is. This coat is so perfect for the cold winter days that are ahead of us. If you live in Denver I am sure you know what I mean. It can get so cold here that when you breathe it hurts. So I am set for this winter. Forever 21 has the cutest coats and cardigans so check out their website if you haven’t already. I paired the fur coat with a cheetah skirt and this fabulous top from chic-talk.com. I also added knee high socks and black booties, for accessories I added these amazing sunglasses from silvanoapparel.com, necklace and a small clutch. I adore this look. I think the grey fur jacket makes the outfit so fun and flirty. Hope you enjoyed it, have a great Thursday and remember tomorrow is Friday woot woot! My hubby and I are driving up to Winter Park CO today where he is doing a job for next couple of days. I will be keeping him company and maybe we will go to hot springs since we’ll be only a few minutes away. On saturday my sister in law and I are doing some shoots in the morning. I will be doing a huge giveaway sometime next week so we are going shopping for that so stay tuned. Also saturday night I am attending a going away dinner for a friend of mine. Have a great weekend.

Hey ladies, happy Tuesday! This weekend was so relaxing, my hubby had it off so we literally hung out at home and ran some errands. Also ate a lot of ice cream that Christine Bennet from moxie.com got me addicted to lol. If you like mint chocolate chip ice cream than you will love this, so all you do is take graham crackers and make ice cream sandwiches out of it. OMG! Its literally a party in your mouth, you have to try it and just don’t get mad at me if you can’t stop eating it lol. So I will tell you a little bit about my trip to LA to visit Christine from moxie.com. We had a great time. We shopped till we dropped, took a lot of photos and stayed up watching movies and drinking our favorite COFFEE :). She is so sweet, I have never meet a person like her. I am so glad God helped us find each other. She also did my hair. You can’t really tell in these photos but its looks amazing. So if you live in Yorba Linda y’all gotta go see her so she can make your hair beautiful. Back to the post. We both bought the same maxi dresses and wanted to do a fun shoot so I styled mine with a pair of distressed skinny jeans, black booties and a simple plaid bag. Head over to moxie.com and see how she styled hers. Hope you enjoyed these two looks. Have an amazing Tuesday! I am meeting with a local Boutique today so I can’t wait to share all of the fun outfits. So stay tuned for that.

<< As Christians, we have to recognize that Faith is perhaps the single most important aspect of Christianity. Without faith in Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, we are are nothing. Faith in God, although it seems easy, will take a lifetime of effort to keep. It is the true Faith and what every Christian should aspire to have. Don’t let your Faith waver when things in life don’t go as planned. We should work hard every day to remember that Jesus Christ is our Savior and God is our Father – we should always have faith in Him. >>

Did you find that perfect coat yet? Winter is around the corner and for cold snowy days like we have in Denver this coat is perfect. I recently went to Forever 21 and stumbeled upon this coat. It was literally love at first site as soon as I saw the price I was even more astound? It was only $27.00. I am the girl that loves to have variety of cute cozy coats so I will not spend more then $50 on one. I love to switch them up. I paired this coat with a white lace top, faux leather leggings and brown booties. I also layered some gold jewlery and toped it off with a cozy scarf. FYI check out mycentsofstyle.com for a 20%OFF your entire purchase just use the code MODA. They have some fun scarfs and great deals. I hope you enjoyed this look. Today is my last day with Christine Bennett :( but I can’t wait to squeeze my hubby I miss him like cray cray. I can’t wait to tell you everything we did this week so stay tuned for Christine and Alena’s adventures in LA. Happy Thursday.

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone’s weekend was fantastic. On Saturday my hubby had a day off so we spent the whole day together. We went to this amazing breakfast place called DJ’s Berkeley Cafe let me just say bomb.com. I had a California Benedict and it was literally a party in my mouth. After we had breakfast we walked around and enjoyed the beautiful weather we had. Sunday we went to church, had some lunch and did some photo shoots for my blog with my sister in law. Later that evening a few girls and I got together for some coffee/girls book night. We are starting a book called The Power Of a Praying Wife. If you are a wife or soon to be wife, I suggest you to read this book it changes the way you pray for your husband and teaches how to be a better wife. If you live in Denver and would like to join us please feel free to email me at modaprints@yahoo.com we would love to have you. Back to the shoot. Isn’t this dress stunning? I went to the release party for the Denver Style Magazine last Thursday and this dress was perfect for that night. I added black heels, gold necklace and a dark purple lipstick. This look is so fun and I absolutely adore this dress. You can dress it down with some fun braids and sandels or dress it up like I did for a night out on the town. I hope you enjoyed this look. I am in LA hanging out with my blogger bestie Christine Bennet so I cannot wait to see what today has in store for us and can’t wait to tell you all about it when I get back. Happy Tuesday.
