the coatllection

January 5, 2018

Hello everyone! Two things you should know about this coat: it’s my moms, and it’s from her insanely large collection of coats. To say she is obsessed with coats would be an understatement. She collects them and I’m sure she can fill up a closet with them. Anyway, she let me borrow this gorgeous one the other day partly because I am the complete opposite and don’t collect coats. It’s not that I don’t like them, I just don’t bother buying them because there is hardly any cold…

santa, baby

December 12, 2017

Santa, baby give me some cold weather! We took these pictures the week before Thanksgiving and it was  probably 85 degrees outside, but somehow it looked like Christmas in every corner of the street. I love how festive everyone around me has been, which makes me love the holiday even more. When I was growing up, we didn’t really have any set Christmas traditions. Sometimes we didn’t even have a tree up. Gasp, I know. It was mainly because my parents would take my brothers and I…

its a new day cardigan

November 29, 2017

The other day I stopped by Target for a few toiletries I needed and somehow ended up walking out with this cardigan and pink handbag (along with other unnecessary things). Does this sound familiar? All too familiar, perhaps. It happens to all of us, right? Anyway, when I bought the two I meant to wear the cardigan and bag separately, but something told me to pair them together, and I’m so glad I did. I love mixing casual with dressy. In this case…

Fall Florals

October 24, 2017

The last thing I think about when choosing what to wear during Fall season is florals or anything that gives me summer vibes, because (probably) like every other person living in Texas, I’m psyched about the leaves changing color and the temperatures finally lowering down, even if it’s just a few degrees. Last week we attended a wedding and something gravitated me towards picking a floral outfit. The pants and blouse have the same exact pattern so when you pair them together…

how to wear joggers to work

October 3, 2017

I love wearing comfortable clothes, but who doesn’t right? I also like to look sharp and not at all like a slob, which can be tough to figure out when choosing what to wear for work. I’m a high school teacher, so as you may imagine, I have to work extra hard to look my age and not like one of the students (sad face). I’m also on my feet all day and running around so staying comfy is a must for…

Mintysynth turns 25

September 11, 2017

So I turned 25 the other day and I honestly feel no different, other than the humbling feeling of being alive another year. When I was younger I remember waiting in anticipation for my birthday month to arrive. My mom and brother were great about making my birthday extra special. There was always some kind of morning surprise and then cake for dinner. I remember my mom telling me that when she was younger, her birthday was spent like any other day. I guess her family didn’t see…

Blue Ruffles on a Summer Day

July 3, 2017

I had the sweetest time with a friend of mine the other day. We walked around Bishop Arts Districts (what she claims as her “hood”) and it was just the girl time we needed. She loves photography and obviously has an eye for it cause she took some amazing shots! We drank a few drinks and ate some ceviche at Gloria’s and ended our time there at a favorite spot of ours, Wild Detectives, which you must visit if you’re…

Romantic Stripes

March 15, 2017

Hello world! I have gone through what feels like a roller coaster ride with these images. I put together this outfit for a romantic Valentine’s day look and… well Valentine’s day happened a month ago. Blogging takes time is all I am going to say. Also, it doesn’t help when all of your edited pictures are perfectly organized in an external drive and the thing crashes the day you decide to upload the pictures. So fast forward to now, I…

Wrap it up

January 20, 2017

I have recently fallen in love with wrap dresses. I’m starting to see them everywhere and I assume it will be a great piece to have as the days get warmer. Like any flowy dress, they are easy to wear in cold or warm weather as long as you pair it with the right accessories. I wore this pretty floral wrap dress the other night on a double date. We watched La La Land at Alamo Drafthouse and headed to…

skirt skirt skirt

January 12, 2017

I have the song “30 hours” stuck in my head btw. No but really, I love wearing skirts. Specially during the winter time because I get to wear them with cute tights and booties! In this case, I decided to pair this patterned Jcrew skirt with my new favorite flats. They are so dang comfy! I love mixing styles and in this case, I have a preppy look going on with the skirt and turtle neck but I made it a tad bit…
