My Thoughts On Easter

Hello everyone! I have been on temporary hiatus, because let’s be honest, sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day! Between traveling, auditions, rehearsals and shows I have not been able to make blogging a priority! Be on the lookout for some life updates coming soon, but for now, enjoy this little post about Easter!

Easter is one of my favorite holidays, second only to Christmas. Besides the religious connotations, which are very important to me, Easter is all about renewal. There is something about it that serves as a reminder that every morning we wake up and are in charge of who we will be. The possibilities are truly endless!

Another thing I love about Easter, is that it is the holiday of florals! This year I wore this gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer dress that I scored during last summers after party sale. The pink flowers are so beautiful and springy!

I hope that you all had a lovely and relaxing Easter!

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Christmas is truly such an amazing holiday. Although my views may seem archaic and outdated, I truly do focus on Jesus’s birth being the, “reason for the season.” I know that technically He wasn’t born on this day, and that December 25th was originally a pagan holiday, but that doesn’t change what it means to me. Even those that aren’t religious can appreciate the kindness of the season.

Although it can get stressful, and we can loose sight of what it is all about, the heart of Christmas is giving, and giving is such a beautiful thing. This was the first year I was able to pick out and purchase gifts for my loved one’s on my own, and it was honestly ten times better than receiving gifts. I love my family and friends, and having a day set aside to be able to show the that is so very wonderful. Now that my Christmas soliloquy is out of the way, let’s get to my outfit!

This New York and Co. Dress (which happened to be a Christmas present!) is absolutely beautiful! It was very Christmasy, but I believe that it would be beautiful for a romantic Valentin’s Day outing, or a, “Galentin’e Day,” soiree! A chunky pearl necklace and my Jack Rogers flats finished off the outfit perfectly.

I hope that you had a magical holiday season, and that you will try to keep the spirit of Christmas all year long!

Noche Buena!

As most of you know, I have resided in sunny South Florida for most of my life. Miami is predominantly made up of Latinos y Latinas who proudly embrace their culture, and my family has adopted lots of new traditions after being surrounded by so many cultures. One holiday tradition that we absolutely love is Noche Buena which is a Christmas Eve celebration.

I got this beautiful lace dress several months ago and I knew that Noche Buena would be the perfect time to wear it. I absolutely adore the eyelash lace and scalloped details.

I also love these darling Rebeca Minkoff earrings. The giant pearl on the back really makes them such an interesting conversation piece.

My nude Vince Camuto pumps and a pretty up do rounded off the outfit.

I hope that you all had a lovely holiday season, and a Feliz Noche Buena!

Fa-la-la-la Festive!

Everyone has a favorite holiday tradition. For some it is baking cookies, or watching, “A Christmas Story,” for the millionth time. My favorite part of the Christmas season is all of the fun holiday parties

There is nothing more fun than putting on a festive dress, some heels, and red lipstick! This is one of my favorite go to holiday party looks! Curls just scream Christmas to me, and so does the color red.

This Lands End dress is oh so elegant and super comfy, which makes it the perfect party dress. This darling sparkly pearl necklace from J. Crew makes the outfit oh so chic, and the heels give you the perfect lift!

Wishing you all a happy holiday season, and don’t forget to stay fa-la-la-la festive!

Bows Pearls and Plaid

Although this week has been, “the most stressful time of the year,” as it has been finals week, I’m so happy that it is almost Christmas time!

Nothing says, “Happy holidays,” quite like this darling little red dress! I decided to wrap it up with a bow belt, because it truly felt like a gift when I found it! I actually found this dress over the summer, but I knew it would make a great Christmas dress!

The moral of the story is to think big picture when you try on clothes. You never know when you’ll find the perfect dress in the wrong season!

I hope that everyone is surviving finals week, and that you’ll find a bit of holiday cheer during, “the most stressful week of the year!”

A Pink Dress, Pearls, and a Head Full of Curls!

You can’t go wrong with a pink dress, pearls, and a head full of curls! Most classical singers like to stick to conservative neutrals such as black and navy for performance; I however, am not most classical singers. I believe that there are lots of concert appropriate outfits that don’t squash your individual style!

When I saw this darling hot pink Kate Spade dress, I could envision it working perfectly in a concert setting. Pairing it with a pearl necklace gave it an air of elegance, while the fun floral pumps gave it an exciting vibe. When I was given the opportunity to perform at the beautiful Bakehouse Art Complex, I knew that this was the perfect venue to debut this look! How do you shake up conventional clothing? -PS
