.winds of change.

One of the few pictures where I didn't have hair in my face.
Oh, the winds of change.


Happy new year everyone! Who is excited about the new year? Is there anything that you are looking forward to? I know I am. I don't have any new year's resolutions, but I am finally starting to re-incorporate blogging and working out into my life! Blogging allows me to be in touch with my creative side and exercising makes me feel great mentally and physically. Having these two things back in my life makes such a huge difference, especially now that I am a mom.

This is my first real outfit post since I've had Luna. When I say real, I mean that I actually planned out my outfit and a time to shoot the pictures. When I say time, I don't mean a specific time because Luna determines whether I get to stick to a plan in the first place. My husband photographer took these pictures on the windiest day in the history of this blog while Luna slept in her stroller. The photoshoot only lasted a few minutes because it was cold and I was pretty sure the wind was going to somehow blow my baby out of the stroller and into the air. This is what happens behind the scenes during my photoshoots now.

I am happy to start off the new year wearing this mustard polka dot blouse gifted to me by PinkBlush, which I paired with an old gray skirt that I've had since college. PinkBlush has so many cute long-sleeve blouses and I chose this one because I do not have any polka dots in my closet! Pretty crazy huh? By the way, PinkBlush provided most of the cute maternity clothes I wore during my pregnancy. I hesitated to use the skirt because it has a pattern on it, but I don't think it clashes with the polka dot pattern at all! Plus, it helps that the patterns are different scales. The burgundy platform shoes give off some major 90s vibes and I purchased them brand-new at a thrift store for $10! I added the beret to match the lighter gray color in the skirt and to make the outfit look a bit more winter...well, California winterish. 







Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this post sponsored by PinkBlush. It's always a pleasure using this platform and engaging with so many creative individuals! I hope you had a wonderful time ringing in the new year, whether you were out partying or relaxing at home. I am excited to be back and I cannot wait to see what this new year has in store for all of us!

Much Love,
PerlaGiselle

  3. That is such a cute top! I love mustard yellow :)

    I smiled at your behind the scenes - all my blog pics are done with the kids on the other side of the camera, haha! It's a tricky balance getting photos but not having them knock the tripod over! :)


    Happy New Year! Hope that your 2019 is off to a great start and you've been having a great week :)
