If you aren’t even a little bit excited about this new trend then you are just lost in the world. Let’s face it, who doesn’t LOVE wearing sweaters and sweatpants?!? Who!? Don’t get me wrong..I love glam and I am the jeans and T-shirt queen BUT a good pair of sweatpants!!! Yeah!
Loving this new trend does NoT mean I love how everyone is wearing it. The whole sweatpants with heels wear of this is just not my cup of tea. If I’m going to wear sweatpants that means I’m going to wear either Sandels, uggs.. or sneakers., but heels….da f*%#! Umm no. If a trend is allowing me to be comfortable with an excuses then you best believe I am going to milk that comfort level to all new heights…. right???
Yesterday my husband and I went to the local zoo, well the only zoo in Barcelona lol. And it was the beginning of Carnival festivities here in Spain so we both dressed down went on a 4 hour walk and had an epic cheat day (in regards to food duh). And when you add hours of walking AND hours of eating, you must break out the sweatpants.
Sweatpants are from Zara kids boy section. Top is Zara. Purse is YSL. And shoes are Nike.
I could not be happier that Spring is Springing along so quickly. Although it doesn’t look so sunny outside in my pictures it was actually pretty nice out. It’s been sunny all week and I am so digging it. If there is one thing I get sick of very very quickly, it’s carrying or wearing a heavy coat. Coats in my opinion are nice and can add a spiceiness to ones outfit but it’s always what’s underneath that counts… at least to me.
Transitioning into spring. I absolutely love sweaters. Not your typical gym sweater but a chic chasmere or knitted sweater top. For Spring season they are essential. They pretty much go with every pant type and is easily dressed up or down, which is Life!!!!
Today I wore a Zara sweater (comes in other colors as well), paired with high waisted Mango jeans, Zara Booties and Hermes Birkin 35 in black. I was warm and comfy and had my new short hair cut to compliment it all!!!
I will share more Spring fashion incorporating sweaters. Also guys.. never forget, it doesn’t matter how much money you spend on an item or what the brand is… it’s how you wear it and piece it together!!!! ❤
I have had long hair pretty much my whole life. With the exception of my younger days when my mom would turn me into a boy with the hair cuts she would get me sighh*. I think that scared me for life and now I am just terrified to go short. Or am I?
I LOVE short hair. And honestly if I had smooth sleek hair that wasn’t so thick I would have cut it all off a long time ago. My shortest length was a little under my shoulders a couple years ago and I loved it (feelings were not mutual as far as my husband goes lol). Short hair is so chic in my opinion. I think it pulls a look together so nicely and just screams mature. Okay without trying to offend anyone here… long hair is only nice when you have full voluminess hair that is healthy. I see so many grow their thin brittle dead hair long and it completely ages the person. Hair like that should be cut short with full of mixed layers and only blow dried. YAS!
Nonetheless there are some cons to long hair. It’s very difficult to maintain. It gets stuck everywhere. It’s annoying to sleep with. It uses up two bottles of conditioner a month (which is a lot for me) and it’s super heavy. So I’m pretty conflicted as if to cut it short and take that leap into the short hair club again!!?!?
Before I leave let me give you my major tips for long healthy hair for those of you seeking to achieve just that.
- ONLY wash your hair once a week
- Do NOT flat iron your hair. Use a blow drier and wait till your hair is damp-dry NOT wet
- Use a good argon oil on the tips of your hair after showers and after blow drying.
I mean really guys, invest in a good shower cap and use it. You will love the results, I swear by it.

Ahhh yes. In fashion sometimes we take risks, sometimes we take pain and sometimes we just tumble and eat sh**…on the bright side of things however I got to wear my new platform shoes!
Typically I love mixing high end items with much more affordable items. I actually do this on a daily basis and it works so nicely that way. Sometimes to much of a brandy outfit just doesn’t look good…almost like you are trying to hard, yah know?! Example: A Gucci logo shirt paired with Gucci jeans with the visible snake stitch and Louboutins and that Louis Vuitton bag you just got. In my opinion that looks like you are trying way to hard. I personally Love making my less expensive clothes look expensive so when a random person says wow I love your top where is it from.. I can share where and how much I go it from, oh and tell them it’s still available so goooo get it!!!
This day I wore basically Zara from head to toe. Jeans and men’s sweater is by Zara as well as my new platform shoes, which I loved. Jacket is by True Religion and bag is Louis Vuitton. I love simple outfits that are comfortable with a hint of statement attached to it. And really I just dress my mood, which most people do.
The day was going great. My fashion photographer (a.k.a my husband) was taking my photo and I’m not sure how but I managed to roll down all those stairs.. get up and trip and fall again. Not only did I trip on my shoes because they are so clumpy but I was also gifted with a blister behind my foot the size of a golf ball… yea I’m still recovering from that blister!!! However, aside from all that fashion is about taking risks and risks sometimes come with pain and suffer or joy and glam. We cant always be winners!!!
Until my next tumble…XoXo
Why does everyone say January first is going to be a fresh start for me.. well let’s state the obvious here, it’s because it’s a new year, new you and time to set those new goals into effect. I must admit I too have made such promises and goals to myself… sometimes successful and sometimes far from it, but this year I realized that even if a few months pass and you take action later on in the year, it doesn’t count any less then if it was the first of the month….as long as it progress!! Who’s with me on this!?
I recently took a moment and really thought what I want to accomplish this year and what I truly love doing. What makes you happy!? Do you ever really ask yourself that? And do you have an answer that satisfys you when you say it in your head? Anyway, I see so many bloggers who are married AND have a new born baby (or more) and I thought… well if they can manage with xy&z then I can as well”. Let me elaborate.. I always wanted to blog and vlog and be one with the fashion industries… I left law school because it just didn’t make me happy. I ended up getting married to my best friend and the love of my life and because I am fortunate enough to not have to work I was left with a lot of time on my hands so to speak.
The past couple of months have been very exciting… well actually the past year. I want so bad to share what is to come but that would take the excitement out of things now wouldn’t it. We for some odd reason push harder to achieve a goal when we know there is a sense of suspense behind the outcome of sharing what we have been hiding… right!? Anyway… it feels great to be writing again. Be sure to follow my YouTube channel SonyaTutorials for what’s to come.
If you love honesty, real life shit and fashion… you are on the right bloggers page!
