Taller and Comfortable

Espadrille wedge street style

Yes, I'm talking about the wedge espadrilles; this is the most versatile, warm weather shoe I've ever come across. Whenever I doubt what to wear with my Spring and Summer ensembles, I immediately reach for my espadrille wedges. These classic shoes, besides bringing a touch of femininity to my outfits, can also be as comfortable as sneakers. Being only 5'4", I appreciate the fact that they can help me to prevent looking stumpy with certain outfits like, for example, with this short jumpsuit.

Bohemian Rhapsody My Way

Bohemian poncho street style

Spring time is almost over, and so is the opportunity for layering. The spring mornings in North Carolina can sometimes be a little chilly. Therefore, a lightly layered outfit seems to be the most appropriate. The day of this photoshoot, I woke up craving a bohemian style that wouldn't interfere with my errands. I recently was gifted with this beautiful fringed poncho piece with such an eclectic feel that reminded of the bohemian rhapsody styles that we have seen lately on runways. The print, the colors, the flowy fabric and of course the fringe, are the details that screamed the word FUN, therefore, it was a perfect piece for me.

Nautical With A Warm Hue

Nautical street style

The combo formula for wearing nautical style is simple: navy, white, red and stripes. However, I often like to add unexpected hues to my maritime ensembles; for example, today I paired it with rust-hued pants and bag. Around this time of the year, you don't see too many people wearing their browns and burgundies and I guess it's because they save those colors for the cooler months of the year. I personally try not to relate colors with seasons, therefore, I enjoy wearing most colors all year round. The only thing that will stop me from wearing a garment of a particular color, in any given season, is the fabric.

Happily Tied Up

Outfit with tied up shirt

Yay!! I'm back with a regular outfit post. However, I still have so many pictures from my honeymoon that I would love to share, but I am not sure if I will have time to share them any time soon. I'm working on a couple of photoshoots that we took before and after our wedding.
I want to thank everyone that left a sweet comment on my wedding pictures on Instagram. I really appriecate your warm wishes.
Today's outfit was an experiment from a few weeks ago. In the past, I've worn button-down shirts knotted at the front with pants, denim shorts (hello, pinup girl!), and skirts. This time, I wanted to do an unexpected styling with an oxford shirt by paring it with my fringe dress (more looks with dress: here and here).

Honeymoon Diary: What I Wore To Old San Juan

Summer vacation outfit in Puerto Rico

Well, my honeymoon diary continues and this time, I want to show you a couple of outfits that I wore while touring Old San Juan. My husband and I only checked one luggage for the both of us. I wanted to travel light, so I only packed my luggage with three pairs of pants, a few t-shirts, one skirt, denim shorts, a rain poncho, one dress, two hats, my pajamas, hiking shoes, flat sandals, undergarments and my wedge espadrilles. Yes, I only packed one dress and the reason why is because this was my first time traveling to Puerto Rico and I wasn't sure what to expect from their environment and weather, and I personally feel more protected and secure wearing my pants. The weather was on our side, because, despite the partially cloudy sky, we had more sunny days than rainy ones. The only time that we got caught in the rain, was the rain forest El Yunque, but that type of weather is pretty much expected in any rain forest.

Honeymoon Diary: Easy Mornings

El Convento Hotel Old San Juan Puerto Rico

Three things are a must for me to achieve a good night sleep or even a nap, and those are a cozy bedroom, a good bed, and comfortable sleepwear. Even on my honeymoon away from home I had to consider those three facts, so I made sure the beds and the ambiance of our room were cozy enough to feel like in home. When I travel, I don't need to have a luxurious room and as a matter of fact, I prefer a cozy and one of a kind place like a bed and breakfast, old historic hotels, and now I've even started considering Airbnb rentals. However, even if it's a cozy place, if I didn't bring comfortable sleepwear,  I will not feel at home away from home. At least, that's the feel I like to achieve when staying out of town.

Honeymoon Diary : Welcome To Puerto Rico

Honeymoon outfit

We are back from our honeymoon, but my heart is still in Puerto Rico. We had a such a great time from the moment we arrived until the last minute there. I've put some pictures together to give you an idea how our time was in Puerto Rico, in case you're considering traveling to the area.
As soon we arrived, we freshened up and headed to visit the obvious attractions and historical places in Old San Juan. We planned to explore the old city in the first two days and then explore the countryside for the remainder of the trip through the use of a rental car.

My City Hall Wedding

Hi, everyone! This past Friday was one of the most important days of my life. After dating my boyfriend Brad Medich for six years, we decided to get married. We both were married before, so this time, we decided to make things a little bit different. Five years ago we decided to move in together and since then we've enjoyed our lives together, but it was only a month ago that we decided to take the next step. Yes, I had only a month to plan my wedding, but since we were keeping things simple, it was a very easy task for me.
One of the hardest things for a bride in the preparation of her wedding is finding the right dress. In my situation, it was very easy because I knew that I wanted to wear a simple non-white lace dress. If you follow me on Snapchat @CareliaMoran you probably saw more live details about my small wedding. Since cameras or cell phones are not allowed inside the courthouse, we decided not to hire a  professional photographer. Instead, I asked my oldest son's girlfriend ,Casey, to take the pictures.

A Coordinated Mix To Sunday Brunch

The weekend is almost over, but that doesn't mean you have to give up the fun. Sundays are the perfect days for dressing cute and strolling around downtown after brunch.
