Neon Flowers

When you're one of those persons who don't feel confortable wearing bright colors, a good way to incorporate them in your outfits is either on your accessories (like shoes, bags, jewelry), or if your feel like taking risks, wearing only one colorful piece that will be the center of attention, and keeping the rest of the outfit neutral, like I did.  I've had this skirt for so many years, but I've wore it, at most, 3 times, because I think that is has WAY to many colors. This skirt may not be my favorite one, but it sure is useful when I'm in the mood for a colorful outfit. Just in case you still don't have that extra colorful piece in your closet, I linked up some pretty ones like THIS one at the end of this post.

Cuando eres una de esas personas a las que no les gusta vestirse de colores, una buena manera de incorporarlos en tus "outfits" es ya sea en los accesorios, como bolsas o zapatos, o también usando una sola prenda colorida que sea el centro de atención, como yo hice aquí en el post de hoy al vestir esta falda de flores neon. Tengo muchos años que tengo esta falda, pero creo que cuando mucho me la he puesto unas tres veces, aunque me niego a deshacerme de ella porque siempre me saca de apuros cuando tengo ganas de usar algo bastante colorido. En caso de que todavía no tengas esa prenda que es la ideal para salir de la rutina de vestir en neutrales, al final de este post les deje el link para comprar algunas faldas tan bonitas como ESTA por menos de $30

Trend Alert: Pastel Nails | Trust Fund Beauty

When I think about nail polish for summer, bright colors is the first thing that comes to my mind. But this season is a bit different, instead of all brights , the color menu of this year also includes plenty of whites, neutrals and my favorite: PASTELS! If  you're looking for the perfect summer shades you just need to take a look to the Trust Fund Beauty Nail collection.

 I've been using the same brand of nail polish for what it seems forever now, and while I still love it I have to admit that the quality it's nowhere near of  Trust Fund. First of all, this is a 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free brand. All their nail polishes are 10- FREE. The nail polish has a thin (almost watery) texture that can be a bit messy when applying but at the same time the colors are opaque and you can use only one coat, or two if you want more opacity. The result is a pretty mani that will stay perfect for at least 5 days, no base or top coat needed. I absolutely love the rectangular bottles that make this polish stand up from the other ones on my collection. Also, the names are just hilarious and they always put a smile on my face.

Do U  know who my father is? Described as a dusty medium pink. This is almost a neutral pink  with a glossy finish that makes the color pop. Perfect for al of those who prefer to wear the same nail polish until they finish it.

 Elegantly Wasted is described as a dark lilac, but to me it looks like a pastel blue with lilac hues and a bit of grey. This color is my favorite of all three.

Flirty and dirty is described as a deep dusty rose. In my opinion this shade is a light mauve with a little bit of shimmer. This is my kind of pink, the shade is the perfect shade for dark skinned girls.

Comic tee

One of the advantages of being petite girl is that you can shop in basically every department in a store, and that increases your chances to get the perfect new addition to your closet. Nor only that, usually kids shoes and clothes are cheaper, so this is also a way to save money when buying clothes. The Comic tee and my vans that I'm wearing on today's post are from the kids department. For a reference, I wear L or XL in kids shirts and shoes in size 4 are the equivalent of women size 6 , but my vans are actually a size 3 because the brand runs big. Like in every brand and store size can vary, so If you're ready to dive into the kids department online shopping I would recommend you to try on clothes first on the different stores and familiarize with the sizes. Do you have any other tips for saving money when shopping? Let me know in a comment below.

Una de las ventajas de ser pequeñita es que prácticamente puedes comprar en todos los departamentos de una tienda. Uno de mis favoritos es la sección de niños, ahí siempre encuentro zapatos y playeras pero por una fracción del precio porque por lo regular la ropa de niños es mas barata.  De hecho la playera que llevo hoy y los zapatos los encontré en la sección de niños. Para que tengan una idea yo generalmente uso talla G o XG en playeras y en zapatos talla 4 que es el equivalente al 6 de mujer. Como siempre sucede, las tallas en cada tienda y marca son diferentes así que si estas lista para comenzar a comprar online en la sección de niños, te recomiendo que primero vayas a las tiendas y te pruebes diferentes tipos de ropa para familiarizarte con las tallas de cada tienda. Has intentado comprar en la sección de niños alguna vez? Cuéntame en un comentario!

Feeling colorful

I love wearing black as much as the next person, but lately I've been all about prints and colorful clothes. This time I wore my beloved floral pants with a bright pink tank top. This top has been sitting on my closet for the longest time, but know is like I feel that I want to wear it all the time. What I really like about the outfit, it is that it is pretty casual but bot pieces are "girly" enough that with only adding high heels like I did looks dressier. The caged sandals I'm wearing are from express but sadly they are sold out . I liked out some awesome pairs like these at the end of this post.

Ya saben que me encanta vestirme de negro, pero últimamente vestirme de colores ha sido lo mio. Esta vez me puse mis queridos pantalones florales con un top rosa vibrante. Este top lleva muchísimo tiempo en mi closet y aunque no me lo pongo para nada, por alguna razón no me he deshecho de el, y ahora lo quiero usar todo el tiempo. No se, puede que los días soleados me tengan de buen humor.

Summer Combo

Happy Saturday Everyone, I hope you're having a great weekend! Summer is finally here and that means that from now and on most of my outfits will consist of high waisted shorts and crop tops. These shorts were my latest find and from the minute I got them I knew I had to wear them with my white embroidered crop top. I love how the patterns of each piece contrast with each other, so to make those details the center of attention I wanted to keep the rest simple. My Rebecca Minkoff micro tote  and white platform sandals were just the perffect addition to this casual outfit.

Feliz Sabado!! Espero que estén teniendo un excelente fin de semana. El verano al fin ha llegado, lo que prácticamente significa que de aquí en adelante la mayor parte de mis outfits van a consistir en shorts y crop tops. No tiene mucho que compre estos shorts, y desde que los vi supe que me los quería poner con mi crop top con bordados. Me encanta como el detalle del top contrasta con los detalles de crochet en el short, así que para mantener lo demás simple solo añadi mi bolso pequeño de Rebecca Minkoff y sandalias de plataforma para terminar el look.

Vans & Denim

Since the last two posts have featured old pictures, I figured I would post another set of throwback pictures to keep with the mood. I took this ones, the day after The Simply Stylist last year!! Cannot believe it has been a year already and the new conference is going to be in one month (If you are in Chicago in july 16, see you there, get your tickets HERE!) .. time flies! By the way, besides the t-shirt everything in the outfit is thrifted. I specially love the bag, don't you think is the cutest thing ever?

Como en los últimos dos posts puse fotos viejas, pues quise seguir con la temática y poner estas que tome el año pasado justo un dia después del Simply Stylist. De verdad que no me creo que ya paso tanto tiempo y la próxima conferencia es en un mes (Si están en Chicago el 16 ahí los veo! pueden comprar los tickets AQUÍ) ... el tiempo vuela! Por cierto, todo lo de este outfit es de la tienda de segunda, lo que mas me gusta es la bolsita, no les parece linda?

Office Wardrobe Staple + giveaway

Happy Saturday!! Can you believe summer is only a couple days away? I feel like time is flying and I just can't catch up. But seriously, is like the week doesn't have enough days, and the days are waaay to short. Am I the only one who feel the same? . Anyway I wore this outfit last April and two months later I'm finally posting this pictures. But in fact  I've been wearing this pants almost once a week. They are a staple on my office wardrobe because they are really comfy, plus the black and white pattern make them a piece easy to match with almost ANYTHING in my closet. That always comes in handy on those days when I wake up late and I have like 5 minutes to get ready!

Feliz Sabado!! Pueden creer que ya casi es Verano? Yo siento que el tiempo esta volando,  de hecho, estas fotos las tome en Abril y siento que apenas fue ayer, y no solo eso, ya pasaron dos meses y apenas están llegando al blog! Es que de verdad los días de la semana y las horas del dia no me alcanzan!! En fin, hace poco vieron estos pantalones AQUÍ  , y como les dije, me los pongo bastante seguido, al menos una vez a la semana los llevo a la oficina porque son super cómodos, y ademas el estampado blanco con negro hace que me combinen con TODO en mi closet, lo que siempre es muy util en esos días que me levanto tardísimo y tengo como 5 minutos para alistarme!
