When I was a little girl two of my favorite trends were overalls and acid wash jeans. I remember when I was about seven, I used to own a pair of light acid wash jeans with suspenders attached to them. Back then I wore them with a red and white stripped shirt and my cowboy boots. I thought I looked so cool. This trend has come back, and of course I had to bring it back with a more modern twist.

Yesterday, the last Sunday of the month of May, we celebrated Dominican Mother's Day. We had a nice family barbecue at one of my cousin's house where a lot of the mothers in our family gathered with children, husbands, and friends to celebrate. Since this is also a holiday weekend (Memorial weekend)  I wanted to add a little American girl vibe to the outfit I wore. I wore my acid wash overalls with a loose-fitting dark blue sleeveless collar shirt. I took this casual look and dressed it up with a pearl and rhinestone statement necklace, white and dark blue stripped heels, and black satchel. Since this was an outdoor party, I wore my blue mirrored aviator glasses, which makes a great combination with the different shades of blue I have going on with this outfit. I took this casual look from comfortable to chic by just adding a few accessories. Overall, I am very happy with the way this look came out.

In light of Dominican Mother's Day, I want to share some photos (below) I took with a very special little guy that changed my world three and half years ago. He makes my life so much more meaningful. My son, Arthur.
