Happy Friday Eve everyone! I hope you all are having a great week. It's been a rough week here for me.   I've been struggling a lot in changing my perspective and controlling my actions and how I response to things. Like I mentioned in my other posts, I'm really working on self-care and self-love. It's definitely a daily struggle for me especially since what I went through last year. I am definitely taking it day by day. One of the struggles that I have been dealing with lately is letting people or events control my feelings and mood. I never really shared this before, but I'm a pretty emotional person. I react very quickly to what others say or think of me. I then internalized it and it usually puts me in a bad mood especially if it's something negative. Today, for example, I was having a great day. I went to workout in the morning and felt great. After my workout, I received a text that really bothered me. My instant mood with from happy to sad and I hate that it did that to me. I've been working really hard to not let that happen, but I'm only human and it does. As I'm writing this, I'm thinking of all the tips that I learned from my therapist, talks from my parents and my good friends on how I can change and shift my mind and perspective. I instantly take 3 deep breaths and tell myself that "things will be okay" to not worry about the "unknown" and to let fear control my mind or my life. I tell myself that I am in control of my thoughts and no one can make me feel weak or unworthy. I also instantly think of 3 positive things in my life that I am thankful for which puts me in a better mood. I also need to learn not to respond to negativity and not to react. I'm hoping to put this in practice for the rest of the weekend especially since it's Easter. I just wanted to let you know if you are struggling you are not the only one. Everyone is working on something and struggling with issues and I'm hoping to be more transparent about mine. Instagram and social media can make life seem so glorifying. I can almost guarantee that is only about 1% of someone's life. At least, I can say that about mine.

In my last post, I mentioned that I was going to share my top 6 trends for Phoenix Fashion Week. One of my favorite trends from the show was the "White on White" trend. I love white for spring. It's such a great color and it reminds me of "innocence" and "purity". I wore this white dress with my favorite white boots that are currently BOGO 50% and under $38. They are seriously so comfy and perfect for spring. I wore them for Fashion Week as well and got so many compliments. Here are some of my favorite ways to wear this trend. I'm linking my favorite white on white outfits below that you can shop.

Another trend that I love is the 80s trend. I was born in the 80s and love the music, fashion and everything that has to do with the 80s. Here are so me of my favorite pieces that you can wear that were inspired from the runaway to everyday wear.


The utility trend is also very popular for spring this year. I love that utility can be sporty, dressy or work appropriate. Here are some of my favorite ways to wear this trend.


The monochromatic trend is another personal favorite of mine. I love the chicness of wearing an outfit that is all one color. I linked some of my favorite monochromatic looks here that you can shop that is perfect for spring/summer.


For men, one of the spring trends at the fashion show was "Men Boxed Suits". I really loved how the stylist curated some fun looks. Here are some images of my favorites and also some looks that your husband/boyfriend/brother or "friend" can wear this season.


Last but not least is the "All Dolled Up Trend" which was the winner of for the Phoenix Fashion Show. These looks were definitely fun to see on the runaway. I found some more everyday looks that was inspired by this trend. 


I wanted to say a very special thank you to Brian Hill the executive direction of Phoenix Fashion Week for not only having me at the show, but as a judge. I had such a fun time and it was such an amazing experience to be part of such a great network of people and stylists that are so inspiring. Thank you for letting me be part of this. It means so much to me and to be able to do what I love and what I passionate about. I also wanted to thank the Andaz Hotel for their hospitality and stay. 
More importantly, I want to thank each and one of you for supporting my dream and being with me on my journey which I'm still trying to figure out. It definitely has taken a different path than I had planned, but I'm hopeful that good things lie ahead! Have a fabulous weekend ahead! Xo
