Laced up!

I may be late to the lace-up trend game, but don't blame me, it was the weather, and I was dying to wear this dress since I got it. This is the first time I wear something with such a deep neckline and I have to admit I was worried I was going to feel a bit uncomfortable, but the lace-up detail made me feel more covered. Also, wearing a piece with an statement detail like the lace-up is, makes this dress an easy to wear piece that doesn't need any other accessories to shine! A lace-up dress like THIS ONE is something you definitely need in your closet.

Desde que compre este vestido moría de ganas por ponérmelo pero el clima no me dejaba. Ahora que ya al fin llego la primavera, fue lo primero que saque de mi closet y me uni a la tendencia del "lace-up". Esta es la primera vez que uso una prenda con un escote tan profundo, y pensé que me iba a sentir un poco incomoda, pero tengo que admitir que el lazo al frente hace que este vestido sea mas fácil d usar, no solo porque hace que me sienta menos descubierta, pero también porque es un detalle muy llamativo que hace que no necesite de ningún otro accesorio para destacar. Un vestido COMO ESTE es lo que tu closet necesita!

Remix: The White Cami


I think I haven't wear this cami since last summer, but now since the weather is nice again, I'm ready to make it part of most of my spring outfits. Meanwhile ere are three ways I wore it last week. Which one is your favorite?
--
Creo que no me he puesto este top desde el verano pasado, pero ahora que el clima ya esta soleado de nuevo, no puedo esperar a hacerlo parte de la mayor parte de mis outftis de primavera. Pero por el momento quiero enseñarles tres diferentes maneras en que use esta blusa el año pasado.

Combat boots, army green jacket

Feels so goo to have sunny days, and be able to wear light jackets once in a while. This time I'm wearing my army green utility jacket in addition with my favorite weekends combo: leggings and combat boots. Those 3 pieces together make a great lazy day ensemble, comfy but not boring! I personally love these leggings with the leather patches that add more edginess to the look, but regular black leggings will do the trick too. If if you feel like taking risks you can always wear something like these go all in with these , and maybe spice the things up with leather and animal print combined, which one of those is your favorite?
--
Ahora que ya los días han estado soleados, y que a fin puedo usar chamarras ligeras sin morir de frió yo soy la mas feliz. En esta ocasión llevo una de mis chamarras favoritas, en conjunto con unos leggings y botas militares para hacer un outfit perfecto para fines de semana, cómodo pero para nada aburrido. A mi me encantan estos leggings con los parches de cuero que le dan el toque edgy al outfit, pero puedes recrear este conjunto con leggings negros normales. Otra buena opción, si lo tuyo es experimentar y tomar riesgos, es usar unos leggings como estos, o todos de cuero, o de cuero con estampado animal. Ya los viste?, Cual es tu favorito?

Thrifted outfit

Today's post is brought to you by the letter T for Thrifted. With exception of the shoes and accessories, I got everything else from a thrift store near my old place. I love thrift stores because you can always find there unique pieces that can be a great addition to your wardrobe, like  this awesome vintage Calvin Klein blazer I'm wearing. I found this gem on my last trip and I immediately knew I had to get it because who I am to say no to the perfect patterned over sized blazer with shoulder pads? I also purchased the jeans for $4 almost a year ago, and they are currently my favorite pair of jeans since they have the perfect length for my shorty self. Do you like to shop in thrift stores? What has been your favorite find?
--
Con excepción de los zapatos y los accesorios, todo lo demás que llevo puesto lo compre en una tienda de segunda (o thrift store) cerca de mi antigua casa. A mi me encantan ese tipo de tiendas porque siempre encuentro prenda únicas que agregar a mi guardarropa, como por ejemplo este blazer estampado Calvin Klein  que es tan "vintage" que hasta tiene hombreras. Cosas como esas son difíciles de encontrar en tiendas regulares sin que te cuesten muy caras, y yo por este blazer pague como $2. En el mismo lugar, hace y varios meses, compre el pantalón por unos $4 y desde entonces se ha convertido en mi favorito, porque tiene el largo perfecto para mis piernas cortitas. Has comprado alguna vez en tiendas de segunda? Que has sido lo mas bonito que has encontrado?

I'm back!

Last couple weeks have been hectic, I started a new job, I was studying  for some tests, and I moved to a new home. I managed to find time for the blog in between that mess, but last week I had to stop posting because we didn't have internet in the new place, and after a week without updating the blog I'm finally back!! And when it feels good to be writing for you again and sneaking through Facebook occasionally, I have to admit living without internet wasn't that bad after all, while being disconnected, we finally finished unpacking, organizing all our stuff and decorating and we also watched a complete season of Modern Family. Most productive week ever! What have you been up to?
--
Las ultimas semanas han sido una locura, comencé un nuevo trabajo, estaba estudiando para unos exámenes y me mude de casa. Y aunque había encontrado el tiempo para escribir en el blog regularmente a pesar de todo, hasta cuando al fin nos pasamos a la nueva casa y tuvimos que estar sin internet toda una semana. Esa es la razón por la que no había actualizado el blog, hasta hoy que llegaron a instalar el internet. Tengo que admitir que estar desconectada no fue tan malo como pensé, y al mismo tiempo estuvimos mas productivos que nunca, no solo terminamos de desempacar, organizar, limpiar y decorar la nueva casa, también tuvimos tiempo de sobra para ver toda una temporada de Modern Family! Ustedes que han hecho últimamente?

Fearless!

If you have been reading me for a while, you already know I'm an advocate for comfy clothes and breaking rules. And this post combines both. First let's talk about the comfiest trends of all Athleisure, which basically is wearing your workout clothes in your day to day outfits.This time I'm wearing my favorite joggers, and a basic crop top with a leather jacket on top to "dress up" the outfit a bit.
--
Si me han estado leyendo por un rato, ya sabrán que yo siempre repito lo mismo todo el tiempo: me encanta la ropa cómoda y no hay que tener miedo a experimentar con tu estilo. Y en este post les hablo de las dos cosas (para variar). Primero les quiero ensenar un poquito sobre la tendencia Athleisure, que se trata de usar ropa que normalmente usarías para hacer ejercicio, como prendas básicas para el dia a dia, mas cómodo imposible!! En esta ocasión llevo la tendencia usando unos pants con un crop top, tenis y una chaqueta de mezclilla para terminar el look y hacerlo ver no tan deportivo.


Now let's move about the real talk, and my favorite: breaking rules! ... You have no idea how many times I've heard that you can't wear a crop top if you don't have a flat stomach, or that you can wear a two piece swimsuit if you don't have the perfect "beach body" ... well, let me tell you I'm not a size 0, my stomach is far from being flat, and Chicago's temperature barely pass the 50 degrees but any of those things stopped me from wearing a swimsuit, or well at least the top part of a bikini in this Sporty outfit (and Yes,you read it right, I'm wearing a bikini top).  I guess my point is , that it doesn't matter if you don't have the "perfect body" or if someone says that you can't wear this or that, DON'T BE AFRAID of experiment, fashion should be less about rules and more to have fun and express yourself.
--
Ahora quiero pasar a lo importante y mi parte favorita: Experimentar y romper reglas! No tienen idea de cuantas veces he leído/escuchado que si no tienes el abdomen plano no debes usar blusas cortas/crop tops, o que no debes ponerte un bikini si no estas en forma. Yo no creo en eso! Mi panza es de todo menos plana, no soy talla cero, y por aquí las temperaturas no pasan de los 50, pero nada de eso me impidió usar un bikini en este outfit .. o al menos el top de un bikini. Lo que les quiero decir es que, en realidad no importa que no tienes el cuerpo ideal para usar esto o el otro,  NUNCA debes dejar de experimentar o usar lo que te gusta solo porque alguien mas lo dice, las reglas están hechas para romperse y la moda se trata de experimentar y expresarte.

Needless to say I'm supporting Target #NOFOMO campaign that is encouraging women all over the world to rock their swimsuits with confidence. Now is the time to stop being self conscious about our bodies and just have fun wit our clothes. Sometimes you'll find the perfect crop top for your outfit in the bikini you purchased last summer and you haven't wear since then. See what I always tell you that versatility is key when shopping for clothes? And because bikini season is just around the corner, I linked up some pieces that you can totally rock both on the beach and on the streets. Don't you want them all?

Por eso cuando lei sobre la campana de Target #NOFOMO supe que tenia que ser parte de este movimiento que motiva a las mujeres a dejar de tener miedo y usar un bikini con confianza! Yo creo que este es el momento ideal de dejar de ser tan criticas con nosotras mismos y disfrutar de nuestra ropa, porque hay veces en que puedes encontrar el crop top perfecto para tu outfit en ese bikini que compraste el verano pasado y no te has vuelto a poner desde entonces. Ya ven porque siempre les digo que la versatilidad es clave para crear tu guardarropa? Dicho todo esto, y porque la temporada de bikini esta a la vuelta de la esquina, aquí les dejo algunas opciones que estoy segura pueden usar tanto en la playa como en las calles, porque dejar guardados tus trajes de baño por todo un año es un desperdicio de espacio en el closet.

Birthday Wishlist

This month is twice as awesome because not only is the month of my birthday, but also because Shopbop is having the biggest sale of the year right now, so of course I couldn't help but to take a look on the website yesterday to snatch some pre-birthday gifts. And why not? use this as an excuse to show you some of my favorites just in case you want to get a little something for the birthday girl ;)

birthday wishlist

When it comes to fashion I usually like to dance to the rhythm of my own drum but this season I'm all about the trends: Lace, off shoulder, tassels ... I love everything and my wishlist proves it! A lace dress is a must for spring and I'm dying over all the cute lace dresses here, I also may or may have not get some pretty lace bras too. Lately I'm seeing tassels all over the place, and I'm craving for one Grace Atelier de Lux bag , and maybe some tassel earrings for those days when I rather make a subtle statement. Talking about accessories: 90's are back, and it's time to wear chokers again, hard to decide which one to chose having so many options here. Finally, a women can't never too many shoes, specially if they are comfy heels, and I definitely have space in the closet for a couple block heels. I'm still debating to get an off shoulder top, but If I do I'll get a denim one to create some denim on denim outfits. And last but not least, you may don't know but I'm a bookworm, and this time this book from Books with style made it to the list for some fashion inspiration.

The navy blazer

On the last post I was talking about a MUST HAVE Basic: The Little Black Dress, and today I'm wearing another one of my favorites wardrobe staples: The blazer. Adding a blazer to your outfits is not only an easy way to dress up a casual outfit, but they are also a great way to add some color to a plain outfit.I personally like better the blazers that look more masculine and oversized. But In this occasion I'm wearing stretch blue blazer  with short sleeves over a basic striped tee, and I finish the look with ankle boots, to create a an outfit that can be worn in the office for casual Friday. 

ps. How pretty is my Foley + Corinna Bag ? I usually don't like to spend a lot on a purse, but since this is the month of my birthday, I decide to treat myself, and I couldn't be happier with this new addition to my closet.

En el post pasado les estaba hablando de una de las prendas que no deben faltar en el guardarropa: El vestidito negro y hoy les quiero ensenar otra pieza básica que no solo es ideal para agregar color a tus atuendos, si no que también hace que un outfit sencillo se vea mas "arreglado" en segundos: El blazer. En lo personal yo prefiero los blazers con estilo mas masculino y un poco "oversized" , pero en esta ocasión llevo un blazer pegadito de mangas cortas, que combine con una blusa de rayas y botines para crear un outfit que podría usarse en la oficina en un viernes casual.

pd. Que les parece mi nueva bolsa Foley + Corinna,  por lo general yo no gasto tanto en una bolsa, pero ya que es el mes de cumpleaños, me di el gusto por esta vez. Y aunque pensé que me iba a arrepentir y la iba a regresar, estoy muy contenta con mi compra. Me encanta!
