Plaid and Studs


I'm pleased to say that this outfit was inspired by my honorary student, Zareena. After getting a sweet letter from the principal last week informing me about the astonishing grades and behavior of Zareena. They decided to nominate her as 'Student of the Month' and I couldn't be more proud. Today is thee official ceremony and she will be receiving her certificate/award. I promise you, I will be hanging that award up on my wall for sure! With that, I leave you with a trendy school girl #ootd. 

I've always been a fan of wearing a variety of prints and textures. Plaid is one of those awesome and timeless prints that I love. Today I decided to mix plaid with studs and a hint of alligator skin with this clutch/wallet. A school girl look for the modern women (without making it look like a costume). I will also be posting pictures of the award ceremony on my Facebook, so make sure to follow me there. Click below to find out the brands and links to where to buy these and similar items. 
Siempre he sido un fan de usar una variedad de estampados y texturas. Tela escocesa es una de esas huellas impresionantes y atemporal. Hoy he decidido mezclar tela escocesa con tachuelas y piel de cocodrilo. Espero que todos ustedes tengan un gran día.

En una nota lateral, hoy Zareena recibirá su premio de "Estudiante del Mes" en su escuela. Estoy muy emocionada y orgullosa de mi niña grande. Voy a publicar fotos de la ceremonia de premiación en mi Facebook. Haga clic a continuación para conocer las marcas y enlaces a lugares de venta en estos y otros estilos.

What To Do and Where To Go This Halloween

My god! October flew and Halloween is around the corner. I still haven't decided what I will be wearing nor what my kids will be dressed as. If you guys have any suggestions on what I or my girls should be this halloween please tweet me @nytrendymoms. Despite not having anything to wear, I do have many places to go with my children and friends. Below you will find a list of kid friendly events, haunted houses and trendy places for adults. Who knows, you might find me in one of these:)

Rebel In The Village


I've always been drawn to wearing black at night, as most of us are. There's a mysterious factor and inner rebel that needs to be unleashed at night, right? This is what I wore to dine with my hubby at Sotto 13 last week (read post here).  
Siempre me he sentido atraído hacia vestir de negro en la noche, al igual que la mayoría de nosotros. Hay un factor misterioso y rebelde interno que debe ser desatado por la noche, ¿verdad? Esto es lo que me puse para ir a cenar con mi marido en Sotto 13 la semana pasada (ver post aquí).

Rhode Island Road Trip


Every year my family and I take a road trip in the beginning of Fall in the hopes of seeing the leaves change color. It has become a family tradition that my kids and I look forward to every year. This time round we wheeled all the way to Newport, Rhode Island. 
Cada año mi familia y yo tomamos un viaje por carretera al comienzo de el otoño, con la esperanza de ver las hojas cambian de color. Se ha convertido en una tradición familiar que mis hijos y yo esperamos cada año. En esta ocasión hemos rodado todo el camino hasta Newport, Rhode Island.

Theres something about silk blouses that make a girl feel extra feminine and confident. I wore this outfit for a business meeting a few days ago. These boots have only been worn once before on my 'Leopard Me In' post. I love how high and comfortable they are, they would look awesome with some dark skinnies and this silk blouse. This can also be a twist to your workwear. Did I mention I wore this skirt backwards? Always put a twist to things.
Hay algo sobre blusas de seda que hacen que una chica se sienta muy femenina y con mucha confianza. Me puse este traje para una reunión de negocios hace unos días. Me e puesto estas botas solamente una vez antes en mi 'Leopard Me In' post. Me encanta lo alto y cómodos que son, y se verían increíble con pantalones oscuros y esta blusa de seda. Esto también puede ser una buena substitucion a su ropa de trabajo. ¿He mencionado que llevaba esta falda al revés? Siempre me gusta ponerle un giro a las cosas.

Intense Moisture Cream

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Johnson's Baby. However, all opinions expressed are my own. 


Yesterday I announced on my 'Baby It's Cold Outside' post that today I would be letting you-in on the secret for having moist and dewy skin. As I mentioned on a previous post, I have combination skin and It's really hard finding products that won't make me breakout. I discovered this Johnson's Baby Intense Moisture Cream accidentally. In the hopes of reviewing this lotion for a -kids post, I ended up liking it for myself and using it on a daily basis as a face and body moisturizer.

All moms know that after applying lotion on our kids, we tend to wear whatever is left on our hands.  I caught myself rubbing the leftover lotion on my elbows and face. & that was the start of something new.

Baby It's Cold Outside


Part of why I love Fall and Winter so much is because I can wear oversized sweaters, drink hot chocolate in my backyard and feel like in that moment the world stopped just for me. This outfit was inspired by just that.  
Parte de eso que me encanta el otoño y el invierno tanto es porque puedo ponerme suéteres de gran tamaño, beber chocolate caliente en mi patio trasero y sentirme como si el mundo se detuvo para mí. Este traje fue inspirado por eso mismo.

Sotto 13


When in the mood for hanging out in the West Village with a couple of friends I highly recommend stopping by Sotto 13, located on 140 w 13th street (btwn 6th and 7th ave). The trendy Pizza, cocktails and Tapas bar is known for having the best brunch in the nation. From a DIY Prosecco bar to a $29 All you can drink brunch. I decided to give this place a try last Sunday night with my husband. I think we can all agree in the importance of details and I will explain this experience as detailed as possible.

Milk Drunk


Today I will be sharing an amazing website I found out about + over 30% off discounts on your child's new wardrobe. 
My family and I had the pleasure of meeting Bre & Sharim, co-founders of Panache Box during our Petite Parade show with UGG Australia and Vogue Bambini a couple of weeks ago. Panache Box is making busy parents life's easier by sending over a box filled with handpicked high quality items (picked by you or Bre & Sharim) sent straight to your doorstep. I love how every item acts as an essential piece in your child's closet. Everything can be mixed and matched with things that are already in his/her closet. When shopping for my girls I always look for pieces that can be worn in many ways and of course pieces that are comfortable. Panache Box is the epitome of 'quality and comfort' at it's best. 
Hoy voy a compartir una página web increíble que me enteré de durante nuestra pasarela con Petite Parade, UGG Australia y Vogue Bambini. Y más de 30% de descuentos para el nuevo vestuario de su hijo.

Tortilleria Nixtamal


Last sunday I had an urge for tacos and I found this local place in Queens called Tortilleria Nixtamal. When I was there it felt like I was in Mexico. The decor was very bright, mostly yellow and red. We wanted to visit this place for quite some time since they are known for having the best tortillas in Queens.

In Purple Boots


It's pretty impossible getting my kids to wear Fall/Winter clothes. All year round they want to wear dresses and sleeveless shirts. In the attempt to pleasing Leanne I let her wear a dress and added a few Autumn touches. A good pullover sweater and these Ugg Australia boots are perfect for Fall/Winter. One trend that I am loving lately is adding sweaters over dresses. What's your favorite Fall trend?

Sweet Tuna Salad


Today I'll be sharing my secrets on how to make your kids eat tuna salad. Believe me, they will love it and so will you. This recipe is kid friendly even though it has a little bit of red onions in it (which you can't really taste). It can be substituted for scallions if you think your kids won't like the raw onions.

Oui Oui


Hello Monday! I am happy to see you come round again. My weekend was incredibly amazing due to the Petite Parade and Vogue Bambini show with Ugg Australia and now I am happy to move on to my next projects.

Maccin' It In Williamsburg


The weekends (without kids) are those days that you just want to unwind and go out for some good o'l comfort food, listen to good music and chat with random strangers -FYI this is only if you're in Williamsburg. Well go figure, that was my -last Friday night. After roaming the streets of willy-b we ended up sitting at a 1920's inspired living room chatting with our new friend Alejandro (a LA based film producer). When the hunger hit we fled the scene and ended up at Brooklyn Mac. We visit Williamsburg pretty frequent and are often catching others saying the smart remark of it being an 'over rated place'. But the reality is it's not and are always blown away by the little hole-in-the-wall places we find. So without further ado, Here's another edition of "What to do this weekend".

Shine On Me


My hair and makeup had a lot to do with Fall. There's something about high ponytails that always pop into my head when Autumn comes around. I like to reach for nude, orange or dark lipsticks during Fall. This Love Devotion lipstick by NARS is a keeper and a beauty essential for this season.

Hey guys and Happy October 1st! Today I have one of two pretty cool news to tell you. If you aren't familiar with Kids Fashion Week, it's pretty similar to New York Fashion Week but for kids. A few designers include Roberto Cavalli, Sonia Rykiel, Diesel and Lily Pulitzer. UGG Australia asked me to join in and walk their runway with my two daughters. Of course I said yes and I am honored to do so. This is such an amazing opportunity and I cannot wait to share more details with you all. It is now official, I will be part of this years Petite Parade Kids Fashion Week with UGG Australia and VOGUE bambini. What's even cooler other than walking down the runway with my daughters is that we will be in the VOGUE Bambini Pitti Bimbo Issue in a special editorial section. The show will be this Saturday so make sure to follow me on all my social media accounts to get sneak peeks:)
