Cross My Heart


Cotton On Tee | H&M Blazer | Nasty Gal Skirt | Olsenboye Beanie | Jeffrey Campbell Shoes

I love outfits that can come together on a whim such as this one. I started with the skirt in mind and then added the shoes, shirt, and just out of nowhere decided to add this beanie. I like the cool feel of this outfit and the fact that it was very comfortable, you can't beat that. These shoes are my new favorites and the outfits that I have been putting together in my head lately are always ending off with these shoes. I am really glad I decided to get them for myself for Christmas :) Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas

I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas with all of your loved ones. My family celebrates Christmas by having dinner on the night of Christmas Eve and then we proceed to wait anxiously for midnight to open up our presents. Do any of you guys celebrate Christmas this way? I am so thankful to be celebrating yet another Christmas with my loved ones and being fortunate enough to receive and be able to give out presents. I hope you got all the presents you wanted! Merry Christmas :) xoxo

Pre-Christmas Attire

F21 cardigan-top-shoes | Brandy Melville skirt | Urban Outfitter tights

I would like to thank all of you who commented on my last post about my first blog birthday, I loved reading all of your comments! Today was a very good day weather-wise and certainly a much needed break from these rough winter like temperatures we have been experiencing. I am pretty much set for Christmas, we bought and wrapped all of our presents (an upgrade from last year when I was still shopping on the 24th). I hope you all are having a great weekend so far and happy holidays! xoxo

My First Year Blogging!

I made it! haha One year ago I decided to finally start a blog, after contemplating for a long time and saying, "should I do it?" I am sooo glad I decided on this day one year ago to start my little blog Christel Paola. I never mentioned this before but my name is Christel and my middle name is Paola so when I couldn't decide on a name for my blog at the time, I just used my name! I honestly love blogging more and more each day and checking out your blogs as well; I am so glad I am a part of this community of fashion bloggers. I love that I am able to share my personal style with you guys and what I love about fashion the most is that everyone can be an individual and have their own style. Life would be pretty boring if everyone dressed the same, so I love seeing other bloggers sharing their style. I would like to thank all of you who stop by and take the time to comment and share your thoughts, I really really appreciate it! I look forward to more and more years of being able to inspire readers and reading your blogs as well :)

Season Change

Sweater and top - Forever21 | Jeans - Urban Outfitters | Boots - here

Hey guys! This is an outfit that I wore to go to the mall to finish our Christmas shopping. My fiance and I did most of our shopping online during cyber Monday but there are just some things that you can't buy on the internet! I wanted to be really comfy as we did a lot of walking and it can get really hot inside of a mall filled with a lot of people. By the way, it's starting to feel a lot like winter now and realized I need to bundle up more when taking pictures! Hope you had a great weekend :)

Hat - here | Sweater - Brandy Melville | Pants - H&M | Boots - here

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and had luck with the black Friday deals. I myself I'm not much of a black Friday shopper as much as I am a cyber Monday shopper. I much rather shop in the comfort of my home instead of trying to tackle the craziness that is the mall. The mall by where I live gets really packed on a regular weekend so I can just imagine how it was this weekend, madness! This is an outfit I wore to run errands and grab some dinner this weekend. This sweater is so warm, I love it! I feel like all these items together make for a perfect cozy fall outfit. I would love to know what online deals (if any) you will be taking advantage of :)
