I love spring beautiful colors and also my garden’s tree that blooms just perfect!
Makes me happy we get to experience all seasons here, but especially after a cold winter you appreciate the warmth the most. Love me some sunshine today so I went out to shoot some pictures in it. I loved spending more time on the fresh air so we got carried away. (By we I mean my daughter and I since she tagged along as my designated photographer)
I absolutely adore this outfit because is simply comfortable and casual to wear just about anywhere. I struggle often shopping since I am petite but pieces like these complete my soul. They are from some of my favorite stores and I can wear them all year long so it is a win win for me.
Not your spring colors but the fabric looks inviting if you get a chance to look at it in person and even better if you can touch it. About the shoes I will say they are vibrant with color and not your typical wear but they are a highlight in my closet and a great addition.

I am so excited to get my first post out. For weeks I was logging in and spending time on the look of the site itself yet not so much on the content of my first post. So I am jumping in with both feet like that all saying we all know so much about.
Shopping is hard for some of us and it can be very stressful if you are not the average size person. But it is okay to be different, you may be too short or too tall, but hey we simply embrace it to make the best of it. If you are too short (like me) you spend some time on a step stool or whatever is near you can climb on to reach some hard to get to items. But if you are too tall you bend a lot to reach lower things that I take for granted sine they are easy for me and that can hurt your back because of the frequency of that activity. So what I am trying to say is we all have challenges but that’s okay, trust me, I speak by experience. We just find ways to find a happy medium. When I was on my twenties I got away with buying kids clothes but at almost 39 years old (which by the way let’s keep that number between us) things are just a tad different. As a professional others expect me to dress accordingly and you manage to overcome the obstacles on your way. Over the years found stores that run smaller and fit me well enough so they get my business over and over again.
There are going to be a few photos as you can tell by now (selfies to be exact) of myself because I want you to see the everyday me. There are not full of the fashion material/quality you expect from a blogger these days but hang in there with me ladies I will get up to speed and improve in all the things I lack now but others master. With that said I invite you to subscribe and Grow with Me because we are going to have a lot of fun. The photos I am using are just random pics. The first one I am on my way to work or driving my kids somewhere, next I am on vacation which explains the messy hair/ natural curls and last but not least you will see me as soon as I got home after a long day of work. “All the selfies on my car were taken when the car was at parked somewhere because safety is very important to me”.
But we are going to look at some fashion tips and cute outfits in the next few posts. Because if you find yourself struggling in the shopping area maybe my ideas can help you.
We are also going to travel together, some will be back in time to the wonderful vacations I’ve taken with my family over the last few years. To give you some hints this family Loves to Cruise so we will cover the places we visited, the food and the entertainment because that is good information to have especially if you are thinking to begin travelling abroad alone or with the family. With that said we drive to a lot of our destinations by car within a reasonable driving distance but flying is my all-time favorite mode of transportation so when things get too far to drive we just fly since places like California and Hawaii are too far not that you can drive to Hawaii but I think you get the picture. We also got a few exciting trips coming up and will share those as I go.
My blog will cover Fashion, Travelling (which are my two favorite things about my blog) and Lifestyle as you probably already notice on my title below the Short and Sweet Chic name. Lifestyle is a broad subject in my opinion which will allow me some freedom to include topics like DIY projects for home or garden, family tips, some cooking ideas which may include quick meals along with some of my favorite Cuban dishes. Again subscribe and we will have lots of fun here on my post and always feel free to comment and give suggestions because I am new and I need all the help I can get. Till next post.
