The perfect floral romper for spring

Here is the proof that I've been wearing nothing but jumpsuits and rompers lately. But seriously, they are extremely easy to style. When I get dresses choosing the right shoes is what takes me the most, but when I wear a romper I know I can grab any pair and it's going to look good because rompers go well with EVERYTHING!! I got this one during winter in a little boutique and It was a steal. The sleeves and the perfect, and (surprisingly) I really like the floral pattern and the color. I think I'm finally finding the love for colorful clothes... at least during spring. What is your favorite trend of the season?

Ultimamente todo lo que me pongo son jumpsuits y rompers, porque son la cosa mas facil de vestir. Ni siquiera escoger los zapatos es complicado porque ademas este tipo de prendas queda CON TODO! Este romper lo compre durante invierno en una boutique de un centro comercial y estoy segura que no pague mas de $5 por el, me encanta el estampado de flores y el color... al menos durante primavera. Cual es tu tendencia favorita de esta temporada?

Travel style : Joggers & suede

Do you remember this outfit ? This is what I wore to my little road trip to minneapolis (Which by the way I haven't got the time to write about here). When I travel comfort is key. My travel outfits are alway a combo of joggers/leggings + sweatshirt + jacket that I tried to keep somewhat "stylish" just in case we stop along the way to take pictures. When I posted this outfit on instagram, a lot of you asked me about this faux-leather joggers. I got them on H&M a really long time ago, but I liked up a bunch of similar ones at the end of this post. Hope you find the perfect ones for you!

Se acuerdan de este oufit? Si! Es lo que me puse durante mi viaje a minneapolis (que por cierto ya pronto compartire algunas fotos aqui en el blog). Cuando voy de viaje siempre trato de ir super comoda, y mi "uniforme de viaje" siempre lleva pants y sudaderas, y una tercer capa que hace que el conjunto se vea mas casual (y menos como para hacer ejercicio) y tambien resulta muy conveniente si hace un poco de frio. El dia que publique este look en instagram muchos de ustedes me preguntaron por estos pants de "cuero" y como les comente yo los consegui en H&M ya hace bastante tiempo, pero me puse a buscar algunos similares y les puse un monton de links al final de este post.  Asegurate de verlos!

Spring Staple: The jumpsuit

Can you think about something more relaxed and easier to style than a jumpsuit? Neither do I!  A jumpsuit is a very versatile piece and a great option for those days when you don't want to sacrifce style for confort. I love the light fabric  in this one, and the vertical stripes that are always a flattering pattern for petites.

Puedes pensar en alguna prenda mas comoda y facil de vestir que un jumpsuit? No? Yo tampoco! Lo que me encanta de los jumpsuits es que son extremadamente versatiles y una opcion ideal para esos dias en que quieres verte con estilo sin dejar del lado la comodidad.  Este que llevo hoy me gusta mucho porque tiene el estampado de rayas verticales (que es super  favorecedor para las chaparritas) y la tela es bastante ligera lo que lo hace una prenda ideal para vestir en capas.

Watercolor

I wore this outfit this past sunday to go to have brunch with my friend Desiree from Fashionlingual (make sure to check her blog). She has a great eye for fashion, but also to spot the prettiest walls in the most random places around Chicago. Because our lunch dates always include lots of walking and lots of pictures I wanted to wear something comfy yet stylish, and a romper + booties is just the perfect combo for those days. To finish the look I just added a (faux) leather jacket because this is Chicago, and a 70 degrees perfect weather kind of day can change in a second. You always need to be prepared!

Esto fue lo que me puse este pasado fin de semana para ir a desayunar con mi amiga Desiree del blog Fashionlingual (asegurate de ir a visitarlo!).  Ella no solo tiene un estilazo, tambien tiene muy buen ojo para encontrar los murales mas lindos por todo Chicago. Como nuestras citas siempre impican caminar mucho y tomar muchas fotos, queria vestir algo que fuera tanto comodo como bonito, asi que opte por este romper de rayas en conjunto con botines que aunque tienen tacon son super comodos. Para finalizar solo agregue mi chaqueta de cuero (falsa), porque hay que recordar que aqui en Chicago hasta el mas soleado de los dias puede cambiar en un segundo y hay que estar siempre preparados!

The blush duster coat

A duster coat is a must have on your spring wardrobe.  They help to accentuate any outfit, and (heads up my petite friends) it elongates your figure. I love the ones in lighter fabrics that are extra flowy and soft , but a knit duster cardi like this is a much better option for those chilly days when all you need is an extra layer to keep you cozy. You know how much I love a good neutral piece (preferably black) but this spring  blush/ dusty pink is the new beige, and when I found this blush beauty HERE and for less than $20 (Score!) I knew I have to have it.

Las chaquetas estilo cazadora son un favorito para esta temporada, no solo ayudan a acentuar cualquier outfit, pero tambien hacen que tu figura se vea mas larga. Personalmente, yo prefiero las telas ligeras y con bastante movimiento para llevar esta tendencia, pero los cardigans super largos tambien son una buena opcion sobre todo en aquellos dias un poco frios en los que necesitamos una capa calientita extra. En cuanto a colores, esta primavera el palo de rosa es un favorito de esta temporada, asi que yo me tuve que olvidar de mi amor por los neutros (y el color negro) y me anime por esta cazadora que estaba en menos de $20 AQUI!

March beauty favorites

Last month I tried so many new products, and I wanted to share with you some of the ones I liked the most. Some of them have been around for a while, If you have tried them before let me know what do you think about them in a comment below.

El mes pasado me la pase probando nuevos productos de belleza y les quiero comparti algunos de los que mas me gustaron. Algunos de estos ya han estado por aqui desde hace mucho, si ya los han probado diganme que piensan en un comentario!



You probably already have heard about the all time favorite Glow mist, often compared with the MAC fix + setting spray. Well, Pixy by Petra expanded their collection and added 3 new mists to their family.  The vitamin wakeup mist is a blend of citrus extracts meant to be used on bare skin to revitalize and prepare the skin before your skin care routine. The hydrating milky mist has hyaluronic acid and black oat and It can be used at any time to soothe dry skin. I like to use it before my night skin care routine because I've found that it helps to better absorb the following serums & moisturizer while helping lock in more hydration. Last but not least the makeup fixing mist, which I use after applying powder products to blend them together for a more natural look. I also like to spray some during the day to refresh my makeup and hydrate my skin. This is supossed to extend the life of your makeup as well, but it doesn't work for me. When i want my makeup to last forever I just use THIS primer from milk cosmetics and this setting spray

Estoy segura que ya mas de una vez habran escuchado/leido miles maravillas de el Pixi by Petra Glow mist que tanto se compara con el MAC fix plus setting spray, asi que yo no les hablare de ese si no de el resto de la nueva colleccion de sprays de Pixi By Petra. El que mas me gusta es el Vitamin Wakeup Mist, que es una mezcla de extractos citricos hecha para hidratar y preparar tu cara antes de tu rutina de belleza. El hydrating milky mist , tiene acido hialuronico y avena, puede utilizarse en cualquier momento para hidratar la piel. Yo lo uso por la noche antes de mi rutina de cuidado facial, pues me ayuda mi piel absorba mejor los serums y el hidratante . Por ultimo el makeup fixing mist me gusta usarlo despues de aplicar mi maquillaje  (sobre todo en polvo) para difuminar los productos y lograr un acabado mas natural. En teoria este producto deberia alargar la vida del maquillaje, pero a mi no me ha funcionado de esa manera. Para que el maquillaje me dure por horas tengo que usar este primer de milk cosmetics) combinado con este spray fijador.


Milk makeup eye pigments 


These little guys  are super pigmented, long lasting & shimmery, cream eyeshadows. They are  perfect for those days when you want to get your makeup done in 5 minutes or less. I like to apply them with my finger all over my eyelid for a quick eyeshadow look, or I dab them on top of my eyeshadow to add some extra sparkle. You can even use them as an eyeliner with the help of an angled brushed. The downside about these is that they dry really quick (about 5 seconds), so you need to move fast when using them!

Estos tubitos son en realidad sombras de ojos en crema super pigmentadas y de larga duracion. Me encantan para esos dias en que voy a la carrera y quiero maquillarme en 5 minutos o menos. Generalmente lo aplico sobre mi parpado movil usando mi dedo, o algunas veces aplico un poquito sobre mi sombra en polvo para agregarle mas brillito. Tambien se pueden usar como delineador de ojos aplicandolo con una brocha diagonal. Lo unico malo de estas sombras es que se secan en 5 minutos o menos asi que hay que aplicarlas super rapido.



Huesbox Suscription

Huesbox is a suscription perfect for those who are looking to discover and add more natural products on their skin care routine. Unlike other suscriptions this one is inclusive for women with darker skin colors. I already wrote a full review of their very first box, and you can find it HERE.


This month's theme was Operation summer time, designed to craft yout best mind, body and spirit for summer! The box included 4 different products from small bussiness : A grapefruit and lemon bath bomb that smells delicious from Alabee Bath. One sample of nature's syrup boddy butter in "mango honey-chile" that I've been carrying around in my purse because it is that great!! and it smells like mango bubblegum, so I'm obsessed . It also included a carrot oil exfoliating soap from clearessence which I've been using every morning. Lastly, my favorite item in the box was the Mango Green Tea with Chrysanthemum. It's delicious!

Anteriormente ya les habia platicado de esta suscripcion, pero este mes ha sido mi favorito y tenia que ponerlo aqui. Por si no han leido el review anterior, Huesbox es una suscripcion perfecta para aquellos que quieren probar y agregar productos naturales en su rutina de belleza. A diferencia de otras suscripciones esta si incluye productos ideales para aquellos con tonos de piel oscuros (como yo!).

Este mes el tema es Operacion verano y la caja incluyo 4 productos ideales para prepararnos para el verano: Una bomba de bano de toronja y limon que huele delicioso de alabee bath, una crema corporal de Nature's Syrup con olor a mango, un jabon exfoliante de aceite de zanahoria, y mi favorito, un te verde de mango que tambien estaba delicioso!



The sequin maxi gown

*This post may contain affiliate links

Today I'm wearing this stunning sequin gown (which in fact is a maternity dress) from pinkblush,  and I'm obsessed with it.  Let me tell you a story about it ... When I was shopping on their website going through pages and pages of beatiful flowy fabrics and floral patterns, this dress caught my attention and I immediatle I fell in love with it.  Just when I was about to order it,  I asked myself, but when I'm going to wear this??? I don't have any fancy events ahead, new years is not even remotely close, and  I can't even think about three different ways to wear it! But against my better judgement I decided to go ahead and get it. Maybe this is not the perfect floral spring dress, nor a conventional dress by any means but it sure is pretty and I'm decided to make it work for the everyday. What a better way to take me out of my confort zone right? .. .. The moral of this story is that is okay to indulge ourselves every once in a while. So just stop waiting for the perfect ocassion, and get that fancy dress you have been eyeballing for a while, or those killer heels you think you'll never be able to wear. When it comes to fashion risky choices are sometimes the best ones!

Hoy llevo este vestido increible de pinkblush que me encanta!! Cuando estaba en su sitio web viendo todas las prendas de telas ligeras y estampados florales tan perfectas para esta temporada, este vestido de lentejuelas me enamoro, y justo cuando estaba a punto de pedirlo me puse a pensar, pero cuando me lo voy a poner??? No tengo ningun evento especial planeado y ademas aun faltan 9 meses para ano nuevo  ... asi que lo deje ahi y continue con mi busqueda, pero de repente todos los demas vestidos que tanto me habian gustado un minuto antes  ya no se veian tan bonitos, y lo unico que se me venia a la cabeza era ESTE vestido asi que hice lo obvio y lo oderne a pesar de todo. Tal vez no es el vestido convencional de primavera, pero yo estoy decidida a hacerlo funcionar y usarlo tantas veces como pueda.  La moraleja de esta historia es que esta bien darnos el gusto de vez en cuando y no tiene nada de malo comprar este vestido que tanto queremos pero que no hemos comprado por no tener "la oportunidad perfecta" para usarlo, o decidirnos por los taconazos increibles en vez de otro par de flats. Cuando se trata de moda y estilo personal las decisiones arriesgadas pueden llegar a ser las mejores
