SPRING AND THE CITY


So apparently the spring hasn’t settle down yet, the weather keeps changing constantly, specially in my super crazy weathered city, where it tends to change completely from the morning to the afternoon. The good thing is that while we wait for the weather to finally start to feel like summer, we get to try some cool trends and styles, like wear a pair of boots with a short dress, like I did for this simple but sexy look, perfect for a sunny but windy day.

I paired a kimono style mini dress with my new ridding boots, which I barely had chance to wear before the winter ended, so I decided to wear them for a different scenario and created a kind of boho chic mood, very easy and casual for the day, but also cool and a bit sultry for a night out. 

I wore some simple accessories like my new calf hair clutch, some silver rings and the coolest pair of vintage chandelier earrings, with some red stones to match with my dress, then to finish the look, I put on a hot red lipstick for an extra color pop and wore my hair up on a slick low bun.

MRS. WHITE


A few weeks ago before the the heat of the spring officially hit the city, I went to grab a quick lunch with a good friend of mine, we visited a great local restaurant called Mrs. White. After lunch we decided to take a few pictures around the place, to show you my look of the day and for you to get to know this cool place (which I really love) as well. I totally recommend it, if you haven't tried it, you are definitely missing out, because the food it’s amazing!

This was a casual date, so I decided to wear a super laid back outfit, by wearing my new super comfy denim jogger pants, with a light sweater to top. To keep the look simple, I matched my shoes, sunnies and bag with my clothes, creating a complete white and blue ensemble. To finish this easy look, I pushed my hair to a side on a messy braid, then wore some big statement earrings, and a hot pink tone lipstick, to add some excitement and a fun pop of color to this effortlessly chic look.

DARK BLOSSOM


Today I’m sharing the second look I wore on the photo shoot of my interview for Look Magazine. I created three diferent outfits that reflected my style and showed off my personality, this one is the most formal of the three, and is the one that best relates to me. I put it together by pairing a cool dark blossom print top, with a slick midi pencil skirt, making it a flirty spring look. 

I love to wear pencil skirts, cause they are perfect to accentuate women’s curves, and I think, if you got them why not show them off!! Fitted skirt are all about embracing your body in a sexy but super sophisticated way, they can make you feel sexy, with out having to look trashy. I am a fan and have a large collection of them, but this one is one of my favorites, I love the tea length it has, it make it way more dramatic and feminine. To complete this look, I added some silver accents, wearing a big chocker necklace and my ankle strap pointy pumps.

TOTAL DENIM


Denim is the most basic fabric ever, it’s so casual and easy to wear, that jeans are most people’s clothes of choice. Everyone loves to wear jeans, me included, but I usually try to make them less casual, by styling them with something not so obvious. This time I decided to keep it simple, by wearing my ripped boyfriend jeans on a total denim look, mixing them with a cool different tone patch work shirt, then I added some statement accessories like a leopard belt, some studded sandals, a big scarf and matching mirror shades, to create a monochromatic look that is simple, yet very chic for a casual day.

FEEL THE BLUES


Sometimes It gets boring to wear the same outfit style over and over during the cold season, let’s face it, usually everyone ends up wearing the same old looks, which tend to involve a cozy sweater, a basic pair of jeans and some riding boots. I mean, I get it, it’s a comfy mix, and so easy to pull off for the everyday looks. Don’t get me wrong, I like to wear the basics too, But I do try to mix things up, by wearing sweaters in a more unexpected way, trying to make different looks for my daily life activities.

One of my favorite ways to dress up a simple sweater, is to pair it with more exciting bottoms. Forget about your old jeans, pair them with something sexier, like a cute mini skirt or as I like to do with mine, with a super fitted pencil skirt, specially one with a bold tone or a cool print, for a more dramatic twist. Like I did this time, by pairing my navy embellished sweater, with a matching graphic skirt and my beloved metallic pumps, making an easy feminine look. 

You don’t have to wear boring looks just because it’s cold outside, you can still wear your favorite sweaters with out looking too simple, just try taking a few risks and have fun while choosing your clothes.
