In case you didn’t know, the white sneaker trend is here to stay. It’s clean, versatile, and always in style. It’s a true classic! White sneakers compliment every outfit, and everyone has been obsessing over this trend, me included. In today’s blog post I’m showing you my how I’m styling my new white adidas UltraBOOST!


I currently have a great selection of casual white sneakers in my closet but I was looking for a comfortable pair that I can wear on my off-duty days, either to workout in or for my airport look. I recently got a pair of white adidas UltraBOOST from Finish Line and I absolutely love this knitted, white-out color way. I love how UltraBOOSTs are so comfortable and versatile! Finish Line has been my go-to for shopping athleisure shoes and clothing because they offer a wide variety of styles from my favorite brands like adidas! I can always find what I’m looking for on their site, and even got  a white pair for my boyfriend to match :)

When it comes to styling, I love wearing my white sneakers with biker shorts because it gives that effortless cool girl vibe! On the other hand, my boyfriend loves wearing his with jeans for a clean street style vibe. How do you style your white sneakers? Would love to know in the comments below!

How To Style Sneakers + Summer Staples

Since summer is just around the corner, I wanted to add a few staple pieces that I thought would be perfect to wear all season long! I was specifically looking for pieces that screams comfort and style, and immediately thought of adidas—one of my favorite brands to shop for my athleisure looks! I found a few items from Finish Line that I absolutely love, and thought I’d share them with you:

1.     Everyone needs a pair of reliable sneakers, and the adidas UltraBOOST has been my favorite for years now! I’m a big fan of them because they’re the most comfortable shoes that I own. I actually needed an upgrade from an old pair I got a few years back, so I decided to get a new pair in white and grey to match my monochromatic wardrobe! I love how I can wear these both to the gym and the airport. They’re the perfect all-around sneakers for the style and functionality, especially for all my fitness and adventure-loving gals out there! I’m also loving the other colors in all-white, black, and pink!

2.     Crop Tops are such a staple piece in my closet because they’re so versatile and easy to wear! I love how this top is cute on it’s own, but you can style it in so many other ways! For example, I would throw on a light jacket for a cool, effortless look; or layer it with a sheer top for a night out. There’s also other colors like white and blue!

 3.      Biker Shorts are a big obsession of mine because they can make any look effortlessly chic! You can dress it up or down and stay comfy while you’re at it. You can go for an “elegant and polished” look by throwing on a blazer, or a “casual and cool” look by wearing an oversized tee! I also love how the stripes on the side gives it such a sporty vibe!

4.     Clear bags are all the rage! Did you know that most music concerts and shows require event-goers to wear only clear bags for safety measures? But hey, I’m not complaining! They’re super cute and fun! I thought this fanny pack would be the perfect everyday summer bag. They also have a crossbody option if that’s more your style!

 5.     Last but not least, a cute hat to complete the look! I found this denim bucket hat and thought I had to get it. I’m currently obsessed with anything denim and I love the subtle print on it. They also have this in white, black and camo!

 I hope you guys loved the wardrobe essentials I shared above! And if you’re planning on adding any of these items to your wardrobe, or if you already have an item or two in your closet, please let me know! I would love to hear your thoughts. I’m hoping that summer can come sooner because I’m excited to show you more styling ideas with these items. Until next time :)

Wellness Intentions for 2018
Pau Dictado Wellness Intentions

Coming into the new year, I made a commitment to myself to practice self love more.  And I knew that loving myself meant taking better care of myself. In order to do so, I’ve set a couple intentions to keep throughout the year:

Have a healthy mind AND body.

In my attempt to have a healthier mind and body, I’ve decided to start practicing yoga. I always thought that I needed to do high intensity workouts when it comes to being active and healthy, and never thought that I would enjoy yoga. However, after hearing first-hand experiences from a few girlfriends, I thought I should give it a try. I recently started my membership at Core Power Yoga and have been loving it so far! I’ve been trying to go 3-4 times a week (mostly in the mornings) and I can honestly say that it’s helped a lot with my mood and productivity as well as my mental health and awareness. I feel more calm and stress-free, and also feel more mindful of my time and surroundings. Core Power Yoga offers different types of classes but I have been loving their yoga sculpt classes because it includes cardio and weights (yes, you heard that right!). If you're interested in checking them out, you can sign up for a free 7-day trial here. On my lighter weeks, I also try to go to the gym at least once or twice to do cardio and heavier weights.


Always remember: It's not about how you look, it's how YOU feel about yourself.

We all get motivated in the beginning of the year but it’s so easy to get side tracked, especially with our busy lives. But once you treat your workout as more of a habit than a chore, it gets a lot easier to be more consistent with it. Simply put, avoid all excuses and make your health a priority!

Keep a healthy, non-strict diet.

A few months ago, I found myself feeling more sluggish than usual and even got sick a couple times. I took it as a sign and started making healthier choices when it comes to what I eat. I started cooking healthier meals at home and have been incorporating more fruits and veggies in my diet. After a couple months, I started shedding a few pounds even though I wasn’t working out! I have been replacing white rice with brown rice, quinoa or greens, and I have been trying to avoid refined sugars. Note: this is my secret to getting those abs pop out!

Don’t get me wrong, this was such a HUGE challenge for me because I’ve always been surrounded by dishes that come with rice, and I have THE biggest sweet tooth ever. But since I crave healthy food when I workout, it got easier over time. It also helps a lot when you make yourself food at home.

Remind yourself that HEALTHY is better than SKINNY.

My biggest advice to you is to find out what works best for you and your body. Crazy strict diets are not always the solution, and I’m not planning on doing one anytime soon. I just try to make sure that I maintain a healthy diet by including fruits and veggies in my meals, and then I treat the weekends as my cheat days where I can indulge with friends and loved ones. With that being said, I’ve been able to keep a healthy weight and still live my best life. It’s really all about balance, and my goal is to simply feel good inside-out (without sacrificing too much).

That’s all I have to share for now! I will try to keep you updated on my wellness journey as time goes by, and I do hope that this post will inspire you to make better and healthier choices for yourself. You can shop a few of my current favorite workout essentials below:

The Track Style

Athletic-inspired and casual cool.

One piece I’m really loving right now are my Adidas track pants. I’m currently cleaning out my closet and found them neglected through the excessive pile of clothes I have in my room. I forgot how comfortable they are and I’ve been wearing them a lot on my off days. I just love how you can easily dress it up with heels or dress them down with sneakers. You can get away by working all morning at home and stepping out later in the day by simply adding strappy heels and a staple knit to look instantly chic! I’ve put other options below in case you want to try this look for yourself.


Athleisure at it’s finest—there’s nothing quite like the classic three stripes.

From the comeback of the Superstar sneakers to killer collabs with the likes of Rita Ora and Pharrell, Adidas Originals has been killing the athleisure game.

Talking about the classics, let’s talk about the track pant reimagined for the modern female:

The Supergirl.

They are slim-fit, made with stretchy tricot material that’s comfortable to either dress up or down! I love the the zip-up ankle detail because it offers alternative options to style—it just adds that cool factor. Wear it with your favorite sneaks for a chill night, or strapped heels for a night out.

I wanted a sporty-yet-casual vibe for this look, so I paired it with my all-white Superstar sneakers. To finish it off, I busted out my cool new sunnies from BonnieClyde. They have a variety of mirrored styles that’s unique, and perfect for the summertime!

Shop the look below (and I hope you're staying hydrated in this summer heat)!
