Urban and Wild

Leopard dress street style

This is probably one of the most comfortable dresses I own and it's also fun to wear. I love it's large and wild leopard print and also how it flares at the bottom, making it full of movement. The first time I wore it, I remember I paired with a pair of orange high heels (see it here), but this time, I opted for a pair of men-inspired shoes and biker vest in order to give it a boyish touch.

The Perfect Gingham Shirt With a Full Skirt

Gingham shirt street style

The gingham shirt finally arrived (see post here) and I couldn't help but to wear it right away.
I decided to style it with one of my favorite denim skirts and classic pumps. I plan to wear this shirt more than once this week and many times throughout the year. It looks well made, so I believe this baby will last long time.

Mini Bags

I'm a huge fan of mini bags, because they are versatile and practical. They are perfect for the times when we feel carrying only essentials or when we are off from work and we don't need to carry an oversized bag around. I personally love the crossover style and the ones that you also wear as a clutch.


Soy una fanática de los mini bolsos, porque son versátiles y prácticos. Son perfectos para los tiempos que sólo queremos lo esencial o cuando estamos fuera del trabajo y que no necesitamos para llevar una bolso súper grande. Personalmente me encanta el estilo de cruzado y los que también se puede usar como bolso de mano. 


Adventuring

How to layer two dresses

I was feeling very creative yesterday! …and decided to layer two dresses for a playful look. I also tied the strings in the back of my neck instead of over my chest. What can I say…sometimes I wake up in the morning feeling like a little kid again; ready to venture out and try new things without fears. Well, yesterday was one of those days for me. I enjoyed my look with its details; mainly how my white dress peaked out a little bit at the bottom, which I think this is a very important detail to take into consideration when layering two dresses.

****
I hope you are having an adventurous weekend.

Thinking of Audrey Hepburn


"Audrey Hepburn would so wear this sweet and sheer cotton top," was the stock description that Bella (see her store here) gave to this top and I couldn't agree more. The vintage 50's style folded boat neck and the side ties were the details that attracted me right away. 
Most of my favorite clothing items in my wardrobe have been purchased in vintage shops and thrift stores. Many times I can find the most unique pieces at a very reasonable price and besides I LOVE the fact that I'm contributing to recycling. 
I'm a big fan of juxtaposition in fashion, so I decided to pair this romantic blouse with a pair of boyish-style Bermudas.

Ethnic Print Midi Skirt

How to wear ethnic prints

I love clothes with movement! And that's exactly what this skirt is all about. I love the ethnic Mexican print and the classic señorita style. This past May on my Cinco de Mayo post (Bohemian Señorita), I wore it with my yellow cropped sweatshirt. Yesterday, I decided to wear it with a neutral colored tee and my old Celine gladiator sandals.

Body-Conscious Skirt

Outfit with pencil midi skirt

Wearing a body-conscious skirt, especially midi-length, can be a challenge for many women, including myself.
I personally like to style them with the highest heels I own and loose tops to balance the proportions.
In this opportunity, I decided to wear this black and white skirt with a bright colored top and statement heels, in order to distribute the attention.

Keep on Moving!

Sporty outfit with Adidas Slides

"To me, if life boils down to one thing, it's movement. To live is to keep moving"
Jerry Seinfeld

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

Preppy and Playful

Mixed patterns street style

I am tagging this look with the words preppy AND playful, because besides finding this combination preppy, I also find the proportions of this look a little hard to pull off, but I had fun daring myself and  wearing it. Since there is a lot going on with this shirt and the floral print of the skirt, I decided to wear a nude colored bag and shoes. I tried this look with flats in front of my mirror and I had to laugh at myself at how stumpy I looked, so I decided to go with my 4 inches heel wedges, which I believe was a smarter choice.

Sporty, The Lady-Like Version

Outfit with Adidas Adilette slides

My window pane printed skirt has been solicited a lot during the last week. I've worn it three times with these sporty slides and comfortable tanks or tees.  A couple days ago while taking a selfie to post on Instagram, I realized that I really liked it the way sporty pieces looked with this very lady-like midi skirt.  I asked my boyfriend to take a few pictures to share this look that frankly I wasn't planning to post here but in Instagram. But hey, I don't think it's a bad idea for readers to get to see what bloggers wear while running errands or just lounging around the house. And by the way, the only pieces I added in the last minute was my bag, bracelet and my sunglasses, which I only wore after we decided to go out for a pizza.

Khaki Shorts With Basics

How to style khaki shorts

Sometimes it's healthy to take a break even from things that you enjoy doing. The last four days I have been pretty much working around my house, getting things in order and working on my blog makeover and on how to make it more attractive on the eyes. I also wanted for you as a visitor to get an immediate idea of my style just by clicking my interchanging header and the tags at the top of my all my posts.
I still have work to do categorizing my posts and adding more features in my blog, but so far, things are working ok. The loading time might take a little longer since I have more features loaded, however the template still remains simple. 
Now let's move to my outfit. I often wear boyfriend or wide legged shorts, because I like how they feel around my legs and of course the comfort factor is always there. So this time, I paired a basic pair of khaki shorts with a basic boyfriend cut shirt and classic style pumps. At this point you probably already figured out that I am a hat lover, so to kick it up a notch a little bit, I decided to wear a classic Panama hat.

Practical and Fun!

Birkenstocks with boyfriend jeans

Two weeks ago while my boyfriend was driving us to the mountains, I decided to take a picture of this look and share on Instagram. As I was taking the picture my boyfriend commented "you really love those Birks and I think even more than any of your Louboutins" Well, I don't know about that!
 My lifestyle is more casual and outdoorsy around Spring/Summer, so I find myself grabbing these sandals more often and besides, they are a perfect companion for even rugged activities that I could never do wearing my stilettos.
I know Birkenstocks are very trendy right now and they probably will go out of style soon, but if you put aside the trend factor and try them out, you will be surprised how comfortable, fun and practical they are. 
I know I am keeping mine and I am considering to buy another pair in nude color.

Confident and Comfortable with Linen Pants and Metallics

Outfit with white linen pants

Every Summer I go back to the darkest part of my closet and drag a pair of linen pants that I had purchased on sale the year before. I keep updating them with a new pair each year since they can easily turn yellow at the bottom, mainly when they're white and very long (I like them that way) so they sweep the floor. I consider linen pants a classic piece that for me never goes out of style, however, finding the appropriate fit is the key to feeling comfortable and chic in them. I personally like them wide-legged, drawstring low waist with front and back patch pockets. 
Linen pants are made for movement -- if you don't feel comfortable and confident enough walking, running or even jumping around in your pants, then maybe you should try a different fit, color or size.
My love for the metallic trend continues, so I decided to pair my already bright white pants with a bright gold top and shiny silver accessories.
