Commuting to Work With Rain Boots

Published on April 18, 2015

Someone said to me that rain boots aren't office-appropriate, and I personally believe it depends on your office dress code policy. However, regardless of your work, I don't see nothing wrong with wearing rubber boots while commuting to your office on a rainy day…right?
As I said before, my work dress code is casual, so I wore this office-appropriate look with rain boots just for fun and to go dinner with my significant other.
You have a wonderful weekend!

When in Doubt, Wear Polka Dots

Published on April 15, 2015

As I said to my Instagram readers…There is nothing wrong with your vision…you are actually seeing spots, and lots of them!
I was not planning to post another black and white look this week, but after reading one of my favorite magazines and seeing the cutest polka dots looks, I ended up completely inspired. This time, I added a small pop of color to add a hint of spice.
Let me share with you one of my favorite fashion sayings, by Marc Jacobs is, "There is not a wrong time to wear polka dots." Agree?

A Ready-To-Go Look for a Busy Day

Published on April 13, 2015

When an outfit is described as neutral and basic, it might sound boring, but if we add a fun piece to the look, things can become a little more interesting. 
Effortless, practical and comfortable are actually the words that come to my mind before I get dressed when I have a busy day (errands, Dr. visits, meeting with friends etc) in town. Since the weather is getting warmer, a pair of flat sandals seems to me to be a great idea to start with. I know flat leather sandals are very casual, but they aren't exactly flip-flops and if we pair them with a pair of semi-dressy pants and a blazer, we can look decent enough to walk in to a Dr. office or to the local bank, and even go for some drinks. In order to add a touch of fun to this effortless look, instead of wearing a solid colored blazer, I decided to wear my versatile floral blazer. See, after all this look isn't boring at all.

Road Trip Through the Countryside

Published on April 11, 2015

We just started hitting the open road and enjoying the countryside of North Carolina, and of course, I'm always checking on the weather before I decide what to wear. Right at this moment, I can't stand very long trips due my back injury three weeks ago, however, I still can enjoy small trips (thank goodness for Aleve) to beautiful backroads. Earlier in the week, the weather was somehow humid, but still warm and perfect for a road trip. Luckly the mosquito population isn't bad right now and I was able to enjoy my trip wearing a skirt
Denim on denim seems to be an easy way to dress for a road trip regardless of the weather, so that was my choice for that day. I decided to wear a pair of comfortable tall boots in case we encountered damp and heavily wooded areas because, besides sightseeing, I enjoy walking through the interesting paths.

Tweed * Linen * Denim

Light wash flare jeans street style
The weather is turning warmer here in North Carolina, therefore, the need for real heavy coats is dwindling. I don't want to give up yet on certain pieces that will keep me warm on chilly spring mornings or evenings, however, this is the perfect time to start introducing lightweight clothing. With this in mind, I started mixing spring-like pieces with the less heavier winter garments. For example,  in this look, I wore my vintage tweed jacket with a 100% cotton tunic and a pair of light wash flared jeans that seemed to be the perfect complement for this combo. At mid-day I removed my tweed jacket, since the weather started getting warmer, but later in the evening, this baby was back on. Now, if you ask me what would I call this look? "Transitional bohemian-dressy" sounds about right. 

Cargo Pants

Cargo pants street style
You might say, "another outfit with army green"? Pardon my obsession, but I'm having so much fun with this masculine shade, that I can't see myself stepping away from it for a while. I have pretty much moved this color as a staple in my wardrobe, so I must share with you through this blog and Instagram all the outfits I came up with.
This time, I'm wearing a cargo pant in a very simple way. I put on a simple black sweatshirt and I just a Panama hat and a statement necklace (tribal style is my favorite) to kick it up a notch a little bit.
