summer-outfit-straw-bag

The other day I told you on instagram that I found in one of my favorite affordable clothing websites (Rosegal) tons of straw bags for under $30. A lot of you asked me to round up some of my favorites, soI did! Go to the end of this post to find them.The straw bag I'm wearing for this pictures is from forever21 and only $18 .

Straw bags for under $30


Like I've mentioned before, Rosegal is an overseas fast fashion store, so keep in mind that because of their super low prices (and FREE shipping all the time) some of the things can be a hit or miss.  I personally prefer them for bags and shoes, they have never dissapointed me!

On July 16th to 18th they are having their anniversary sale , so you can snag any of these with an additional 12% off with the code "RGAnniversary1". However I do recommend you that if you REALLY like something, get it right away. I've noticed that they sold out pretty quick.



Summertime!

swimsuit: Rachel Roy (c/o)

Summer is my favorite time in the city. The weather is perfect, days are longer  and everyone seems to be happier. This past saturday we took advantage of the sunny day and went to the beach for a little bit. I wore this swimsuit that I got from Rachel Roy and I'm obsessed with. If you're looking for a high quality swimsuit definitely check out their page. The prices may be hefty but I think it worths the splurge. If you're not in the mood for spending big bucks, no worries they also have a bunch of swimsuits for less than $20 and just as cute. As far as sizing I would say these run big. I usually get my swimsuits in M to fit my curves but this one was a little bit loose in some areas, a size S would have been much better.

By the way What do you think about the new swimwear trends? I've always been a two piece swimsuit kind of girl but lately I'm loving all the cute styles of one pieces and high waisted bikinis I see everywhere. I linked up some of my favorite at the end of this post.

Los veranos en chicago son mis favoritos. El clima es perfecto, los dias son mas largos, hay muchos eventos por toda la ciudad y encima de todo, la gente se ve mucho mas feliz. Este pasado domingo nos aprovechamos del dia soleado y fuimos a la playa un ratito. Me puse este traje de baño de Rachel Roy que me mandaron hace poquito y me encanto! Si estan buscando un traje de buena calidad, les recomiendo muchisimo visitar la pagina, los precios si estan un poco caros pero yo creo que vale la pena, y si no quieren gastar mucho revisen la seccion de ofertas, tienen algunos modelos super bonitos y por menos de $20. En cuanto a la talla yo diria que estos vienen grandes, yo por regular soy talla mediana y este me quedo un poco flojo, un talla chica hubiera sido mucho mejor.

Por cierto, que piensan de las nuevas tendencias de  trajes de baño? Yo siempre habia sido amante de los bikimis pero ultimamente me encatan los trajes de una pieza. Les comparto unos de mis favoritos hasta el final de este post

Summer Basics


sumer-basics-high-waisted-shorts

 Crop tops, gaucho pants, crochet, linen, button front dresses...  I love all the trends currently going on for spring summer, but for me nothing beats a good old white t-shirt/high waisted shorts/slides outfit. You can easily take this little number from brunch to the beach, and that's exactly what I did the day I took this pictures , ALMOST A YEAR AGO! With summer, slowly approaching it only seemed appropiate to finally share them with you. What is your favorite outfit combo for summer?

Los crop tops, pantalones gaucho, tejidos, lino y vestidos de botones, todas las tendencias de esta primavera me encantan pero sigo prefiriendo los basicos y los shorts de mezclilla combinados con  blusas blancas es mi conjunto favorito para el verano. Ademas de facil de vestir es super versatil!

Emiline Diaries: Getting back on track!

wearing: Naturalizer Emiline Loafers | Calvin Klein High waisted jeans (thrifted then customized by me) - similar - similar (ONLY $13) | Crushed Velvet top (exact one for only $6) | Forever 21 circle earrings | Guess FlapBag - similar 


I'm finally getting my life together after my Costa Rica trip. Honestly all I've been doing since I came back from vacation is reading books and watching Netflix Shows. This past Sunday I put some makeup on, wore my brand new Loafers from Naturalizer and I did this photo-shoot. I felt so accomplished!

After experimenting with colors for a hot second I'm back on my neutrals and basics bandwagon and this outfit proves it.  Part of it it's because I feel more confortable with this style but also because I've been feeling very inspired by Sheryl Luke's (from @walkinwonderland) style. I totally recommend you to follow her!

Apenas siento que voy regresando a la realidad despues de mi ultimo Viaje. Todo lo que he hecho ultimamente es ver shows en Netflix y leer. No fue hasta este domingo que al fin me anime a ponerme un poco de maquillaje y salir a tomar fotos. Senti que volvi a la vida!

Tambien si se dan cuenta , ya he vuelto a los neutrales y basicos despues de haber experimentado un poco con mi estilo, en parte es porque me siento mucho mas comoda con este tipo de ropa pero tambien porque ultimamente me he inspirado mucho en la cuenta @walkinwonderland. Se las recomiendo muchisimo!
