Backyard Narnia

Outfit in the snow

This past week I noticed our dog, Elvis, having extra energy due to the snowy weather, which it made me very happy, because we know he misses Adobe, our other dog that we had to say goodbye to, a few months ago due his health condition. Elvis is almost 16 years old as Adobe was, but when he goes outside and plays in the snow, he acts like a much younger dog. So, I couldn't help but take several pictures of us having fun in our back yard once again. I really wasn't  planning to have a photo-shoot in the deep snow, so I was wearing the clothes I had on me all day, however, after the photo-shoot my pants were wet, so I put on skinny jeans and my snow boots. After all, I really like the way the pictures turned out, even wearing the least appropriate pants for heavy snow and, by the way, the fringed boots had rubber soles, so it wasn't a problem walking in the snow.

Chunky Houndstooth Sweater and Leopard Pumps

Leopard pumps street style

The last time I posted a look with these pants, I was wearing them with similar neutral pieces (see it  here). However this time, I instead of pair them with a solid color sweater and shoes, I decided to do a little pattern playing with a houndstooth/duck printed sweater and my new leopard pumps. 

My New Leopards

"Say hello to my little friends" I don't know if you're a fan of stilettos, but I personally love them.
These beauties just came in a few days ago and I'm incredibly happy with them. I don't care if they say that stiletto heels are going out of style (great!! Now we can find them at great sale prices), because to me, they are timeless. I can't wait to style them with most of my wardrobe.

"Saluda a mis amiguitas" No sé si eres un fan de los tacones de aguja, pero personalmente me encantan.
Estas bellezas acaban de llegar hace unos días y estoy muy feliz con ellas. No me importa si dicen que los tacones de aguja ya están pasando de moda (genial !! Ahora podemos encontrarlos a precios cómodos), porque para mí son intemporales. Ya no puedo esperar para ponérmelos con la mayor parte de mi armario.

Saint Laurent Paris Pumps

Pardon my Fringe

Flare jeans street style
Here I'm again wearing this fun fringe jacket! And this time I'm wearing it with another trendy piece such as my wide leg/flared pants. I kept everything else classic in order to create a balance. Trendy with classic is always a fun combo and mainly when the trendy pieces are vintage. By the way, this was the first time wearing my Christian Louboutin Decollete pumps, which I need to take to Santana Creative to put a protective half of rubber sole. I do this with most of my leather sole pumps, that way they last longer including the very tip of the shoes.
I hope you like this look and I wish you a wonderful day.

Blooming in the Snow

How to wear white in winter
I opened my closet asking myself how can I dress fun in 20 degree snowy weather? It wasn't windy, which was a plus, but still cold enough to consider some layering. Here in NC our winters aren't as bad as the northern part of the country, therefore, I don't dress often for low temperatures like the ones we are going through right now. Well, after staring at my wardrobe for a few minutes, I thought about what type of clothes makes me the most happiest and I immediately leaned toward this floral printed blazer (also worn herehere and here). Then, to make things even more fun and more me, I reached for this red vintage belt and then for a white pair of boyfriend jeans to playfully match the snow.

Classy, Classic, Simple and Sexy

A few days ago, I shared this picture on my Instagram and I couldn't help sharing it here in my blog as well.  These beautiful CL Decollete shoes were a birthday/Valentines present from my dear boyfriend. You can't imagine how happy I was when I opened the box and saw these amazing shoes. I haven't had the opportunity to wear them yet, because the weather is wet right now, however, I tried them in my house and they fit just right. I love these shoes and the color, because as my round toe nude pumps, these babies are classic and classy and never go out of style. I'm a happy gal here.

Hace unos días compartí esta foto en mi Instagram y yo no pude evitar compartirla aquí en mi blog también. Estos zapatos hermosos de CL Decollete  fue el regalo que mi querido novio me dio de cumpleaños / de San Valentín. No te puedes imaginar lo feliz que estaba cuando abrí la caja y vi estos zapatos increíbles. No he tenido la oportunidad de usarlos, debido a que el clima esta húmedo en este momento, sin embargo, me los probé en mi casa y me quedan a la perfección. Me encantan estos zapatos y también el color, porque así como mis otros tacones de color carne y punta redonda, estos bebés son clásicos y con clase y por lo tanto nunca pasan de moda. Soy una chica feliz aquí.

Christian Louboutin Decollete Nude Pumps

Winter Layers

Leopard coat street style

When I bought this coat at a vintage store, I was wishing for some cold weather (see first look here), at least for a few days. Well, looks like the really cold days are here in North Carolina, therefore, it's the perfect time for wearing this coat.
I have this denim jacket that I haven't worn for a while now, so I decided to give it some use in this outfit in order to keep me even warmer and also add a casual touch. I'm a big fan of turtleneck fitted tops because, like in this outfit, they always come handy, mainly when layering. There are two things in this outfit that I love, and it's the mixed pattern going on with stripes and leopard; and also the fact that vintage pieces added a fun touch to my look.

Light Wash Flare Jeans

How to wear flare jeans

Here I am again, wearing another pair of flared jeans! I can't help it, but I've always been a huge fan
of this style. They make my legs look longer, so right there I have enough of an excuse for never letting them go. I never stopped wearing them (see more looks herehere, here, here, and here) regardless of whether they are trending or not. Flare jeans are a staple in my wardrobe, therefore, it was time to make an update. I had to let go of three old pairs which I just replaced them with a medium dark wash (see it here) and this lighter wash. I need one more pair to replace my really old black ones, however, I haven't found the right fit so far.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a very romantic Valentine's Day!

Aquí estoy de nuevo llevando otro par de pantalones vaqueros acampanados! No puedo evitarlo, pero yo siempre he sido una fanática de este estilo. Se que mis piernas se vean más largas cuando me pongo este tipo de pantalones, y eso es suficiente excusa para no dejarlos ir. Nunca dejé de usarlos (ver más miradas aquí, aquí, aquí, aquí, y aquí), independientemente de que si están en tendencia o no. Vaqueros acampanados son piezas básicas en mi armario, por lo tanto, era hora de actualizarlos. Tuve que despedirme de tres pares que ya estaban viejitos y que acabo los reemplazar con un par de lavado medio oscuro (ver aquí) y éste de lavado claro. Necesito un par más para reemplazar los de color negro, ya que estaban muy viejos y estirados.

Espero que tengan un fin de semana formidable y un día de San Valentin muy romántico. 

Metal belts trend

Flare jeans street style

I have to mention that all my chain belts started seeing daylight again. I like the retro touch that they're adding to my looks and a little bling.

Tengo mencionarles que todos mis cinturones de metal están viendo la luz del día otra vez. La verdad es que me gusta el toque retro que le están dando a mis conjuntos.

Birthday or Valentines Outfit

Mixed patterns street style
Since today is my birthday and in a few days is Valentines, yesterday I decided to wear a lady-like romantic look. I wanted to add a subtle, sexy touch to this conservative outfit, so I wore a red slip and I exposed it a little bit around cleavage. Instead of wearing pumps or dainty heels, I went for a chunky pair of platforms. I really love how the brown shoes and the belt added warmness to black and white mixed prints.

Leather Pants And Converse

Leather pants with sneakers
When I tried on these vintage pants, the first thing that came to mind was how cool they would look with all my pumps. Well, the funny thing is that when I finally decided to wear them, I chose to wear them with Converse sneakers. These pants are as comfortable as a pair of sweatpants; the reason why I felt like just keeping everything else as comfy and as easy as the pants. 

Cuando me estaba midiendo estos pantalones, lo primero que se me vino a la mente fue lo genial que se verían con todos mis tacones. Bueno, lo chistoso es que cuando finalmente me decidí a ponérmelos, opté por un par tenis Converse. Estos pantalones son tan cómodos como los de elásticos; razón por la cual me decidí acompañarlos con atuendos confortables.

Overalls with Fun Pieces

Overalls with heels

I will start saying that I had a blast wearing the outfit that I'm sharing with you today! An outfit with overalls, a fringe jacket, striped top, leopard pumps, oversized sunglasses and studded bag can be a bit too much if you didn't wake up with a playful attitude, and obviously, it wasn't my case. The fringe jacket is a new vintage find which I completely love (for now) and my overalls are also new in my wardrobe, which will replace my old pair. 
As you can see, I'm wearing vintage with new, and is a combo that I have been trying to achieve more often. I really love how pieces from different eras can make my looks more fun and of course, more me.

I hope you have a very stylish monday!

60's Bright Print

How to wear a colorful maxi skirt

We have had a couple days of spring-like weather here in the South and, obviously, I took advantage of it and wore this bright 60's maxi skirt. I love the groovy pattern in this skirt and the breathtaking colors. Since the skirt makes a huge statement by itself, I decide to pair it with neutral colored pieces in order to keep simple and yet fun. 

Bohemian Fringe

How to wear the fringe trend

I have been enamored for a while now with the fringe trend. However, until last week, I found a couple vintage pieces with fringe that completely got my attention. By the way, the Saint Laurent new Spring collection is the perfect example of how to wear fringe with a bohemian vibe. Today, I'm sharing with you a look inspired by this collection, which I wore this past Monday (off from work) to spend time around town and celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. I really felt very comfortable and even sassy wearing this boho style look.

A Tomboy Way to Winterize White Jeans

How to wear white jeans in winter

I completely refuse to put my white jeans away around the cold weather months and with that attitude, I came up with this tomboyish look. I wanted to be comfortable and warm, so I decided to wear a pair of lower heel booties, cocoon wool coat and my boyfriend's scarf and belt. The wool hat and aviators were a must in order to accentuate even more the boyish style.

Me niego totalmente a guardar mis vaqueros blancos en los meses de clima más frío y con esta actitud  se me ocurrió ponérmelos de una forma masculina. Yo quería estar cómoda y cálida, así que decidí usar un par de botines súper comfortables, un abrigo de lana estilo capullo y una bufanda y cinturón de mi novio. El gorro de lana y los aviadores eran una necesidad con el fin de acentuar aún más el estilo masculino.
