Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I wanted to share this trench-coat inspired mini dress that would make the perfect Saturday night-out look. This dress by Mango is extremely soft and comfortable. You can easily wear it with a pair of flats for a casual look or dress it up with some pumps. This dress also comes in all white (love) which I think would look so elegant with a black fedora…don’t you think? Thank you so much for reading! Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Esta semana fue de locos para mi pero bueno quería compartir este look super sencillo con ustedes. Este vestido se puede vestir super casual para durante el día con un par de flats o se puede usar en la noche con unas par de tacones como los que use en las fotos. Este vestido de Mango es super comodo y suave. También viene en blanco que se viera super lindo con un sombrero o tacones de colores. Que les parece? Muchas gracias por leer, espero que tengan un buen fin de semana!

2015 beach essentials

Happy Hump Day Amigos! Where has the week gone? I’ve been running around Dubai from meeting to meeting and planning the next few month which will be jam-packed with travels. I wanted to share my favorite, must-have beach essentials for this summer. I’m heading to JAMAICA later next week and Aruba towards the end of May so I’m looking for some cute coverups, sandals, and more. What do you guys think of these finds? Are any of you traveling this summer?

Happy Monday everyone! How was everyone’s weekend? My husband and I did some exploring and drove to Ras al-Khaiman, one of the seven emirates in the UAE. We had a relaxing weekend by the beach and enjoyed a change of scenery. We are trying to spend as much time as we can outside before the weather gets unbearably hot, I heard the temperature can get up to 110F degrees with 90% humidity! I’ll be sharing my first summer experience in the UAE with all of you on the blog…stay tuned. This baby blue pleated skirt has a beautiful movement when walking and I love the delicate slit on the left which shows just a little  of  my leg. This skirt can easily be pair up with a grey sweater for a chilly night, a simple white tee or a fun vibrant floral top like seen above.  I added this classic boat hat and these gold sandals from Aldo. These are my first pair of Aldo shoes and I have mixed feelings about them. The gold color is already starting to peal off ( no bueno) but I love how comfortable and bright they are. While wearing them these weekend my husband told me, “everyone keeps looking at your shoes” I smiled and said, ” I’m sure they would never guess they cost $60.00.” Bulky, platform sandals are a big trend this season, I personally love these and these. Have you guys ever tried Aldo shoes before? What do you think of this skirt? Let me know in the comment section below!

Feliz Lunes a todos! Como pasaron el fin de semana? Mi esposo y yo manejamos a Ras AL Khaiman que es uno de los siete emiratos del pais. Queremos disfrutar del buen clima antes que se ponga tan caliente que recomiendan no salir, las temperaturas suben a 110F y la humedad esta al 90%. Les contare sobre mi experiencia en el verano pronto en el blog. Me encanta el movimiento de esta falda, el abrimiento en la pierna izquieda hace la falda super coqueta.  Combine el look con una camisa floreada y estas sandalias doradadas de la marca Aldo. Ustedes han probado los zapatos Aldos antes? La verdad es que me gustaron porque me parcen super comodos y economicos pero el color ya se le comenzo a caer. Las sandalias de plataformas estan de modas, de muchos colors y precios por los momentos me encantan estas y estas. Que les parece este look? Dejenme saber abajo en los comentarios.

Happy Friday Amigos! Wearing a few of my favorites things on today’s post; a classic white button down and this beautiful royal blue maxi skirt. Even though the skirt is very dressy and formal I wanted to dress it down while in Dubai for a few meetings and lunch with a friend. Adding a simple pair of nude and comfortable wedges was the perfect way to keep this outfit casual yet elegant…I mean is there such a thing? haha Thanks for reading and hope everyone has a great weekend!

A casual yet chic Spring inspired outfit for today’s post. This suede mini dress from the Spanish brand Stradivarius might be one of the most understated pieces in my closet. Let’s be honest, the color of the dress might be a little on par with my skin tone…haha but this dress can be worn so many different ways I had to get it. I can definitely see myself wearing it with sneakers like these and a denim jacket while running errands in Chicago or for a girls night out with a pair of black or nude heels. This time around added a pop of color with this burgundy fedora, definitely a must-have for Spring. I’m sharing a few similar options below, thank you so much for reading and I look forward to seeing your comments about this cute number.

Un vestido super sencillo y casual para hoy. Este vestido de gamuza de la marca Espanola, Stradivarius puede ser uno de mis vestidos mas sencillos y simples. La verdad es que el color es un poco oscuro y hasta parecido a mi color de piel…haha pero la verdad es que lo compre porque lo puedo combinar de muchas maneras. Lo puedo usar en Chicago mientras hago varias diligencias con una chaqueta de jean y estos zapatos super cómodos o con unos tacones negro para la noche. Para el look de hoy combine el vestido con este sombrero para darle un poco de color. Que les parece? Les gusta el vestido? Muchas gracias por leer!

Happy Monday Amigos! How was everyone’s weekend? I was in Dubai for most of the weekend attending Fashion Forward, a fun and vibrant fashion event in the UAE. I had so much fun learning about different local and regional designers and getting familiar with the fashion and blogging scene in this part of the world. I wore this playful matchy-matchy outfit from Carolina Herrera on the last day of Fashion Forward and received tons of compliments. Someone called me “dalmation” and another friend called me “Mrs. Polka Dot” obviously all in good fun…haha. Growing up in Venezuela I remember my mom would always wear Carolina Herrera to any major event and since a young age I’ve been a  fan of the effortless elegance and feminine designs of Carolina Herrera. These pants are fun and versatile, I can easily see myself wearing them again with a red blouse and even this yellow ruffle top for a more tropical beach outfit. This time around I wore this feminine matching top, I tied the sides on the front but could have also gone for a more traditional look and tied a big bow on the back, either way it was a fun way to accentuate my hips. Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to reading your thoughts on this cheerful and fun outfit!

Hola a todos! Espero que hayan pasado un buen fin de semana! Les cuanto que ma pase todo el fin en Dubai en un evento que se llama Fashion Forward. El evento se trata sobre mostrar los diferentes diseñadores en la region, convivir y conocer a gente en la industria. En el ultimo día de Fashion Forward use este mismo look de la marca Carolina Herrera. Mucha gente me miraba, y me dijeron que les encanto el look. Desde pequeña me ha encanto la marca Carolina Herrera, mientras crecía en Venezuela mi mama siempre usaba las carteras o vestidos para cualquier evento especial. Estos pantalones son super coquetos y versátil, también se pueden usar con una camisa roja o hasta este top amarillo para un look mas playero.  Que les parece este look y la combinación entre los pantalones y la camisa? Muchas gracias por leer y espero leer sus comentarios.

Happy Friday everyone! How cute is this pink peplum top? I really don’t wear pink that often but when I saw this dusty pink satin top from the brand Riva ( Middle East based) it reminded me of Carrie Bradshaw…haha so of course I had to get it. The dramatic bell sleeves add some elegance and volume to the top. I can honestly say this might be the most structured item in my closet, I love the dramatic peplum and sleeves. I styled this top for a date night look but it can easily be worn with white pants for an elegant lunch date or even dress down with skinny jeans and nude pumps. Thank you so much for reading, what are you thoughts on this top? You can shop for similar peplum tops below…

Hola a todos! Que les parece este top rosado? La verdad es que muy poco me visto con el color rosado pero este top me pareció super coqueto y diferente a cualquier otra cosa en mi closet. A parte que cuando lo vi en la tienda Riva me acordó al personaje de Carrie Bradshaw en Sex and the City y pues obviamente lo termine comprando. Me encanta el volumen y la estructura del top aparte de las mangas. Aunque lo combine la camisa para un look un poco deportivo, tambien se puede combinar con pantalones blancos para un look elegante o un loook mas sencillo con jeans y tacones color hueso. Que les parece el top? Les gusta? Muchas gracias por leer y espero que tengan un buen fin de semana.

Yes, that is a teddy bear iPhone case! haha Let me explain…I was walking in one of the most beautiful malls in Abu Dhabi, the Galleria Mall and spotted the flashy and bold Moschino store. As I walked in the store I spotted their entire “teddy bear collection” including tshirts, purses and of course iPhone cases. This was definitely a splurge ( especially for an iPhone case) but honestly it made me smile. Everytime I pull it out in public or between a big group of friends people ask me where I got it, or I get, ” is that really your phone” yes it is and I love it! I wore this  outfit earlier this week while in Dubai, midi skirts have really become my go-to style in the UAE, they are stylish and “conservative” and so easy to dress down or up. I actually wore this exact same skirt a while back and styled it in a completely different way. This skirt is absolutely gorgeous and playful, the tulle lining creates a feminine volume. You can see some of my favorite midi skirts below…also Shopbop if offering 25% OFF YOUR ENTIRE PURCHASE, I’m thinking about getting this pouch and this dress.

Que les parece mi osito como un forro para mi celular? Mientras caminaba por el Galleria Mall en Abu Dhabi vi la tienda de Moschino donde tenían la colección “de ositos” incluyendo carteras, camisas y forros para el celular. Cada vez que uso el celular o lo saco en publico alguien me pregunta donde lo compre o se ríen. La verdad es que me llamo la atención, me parece algo único y diferente. Use esta falda durante unas reuniones en Dubai, es el largo perfecto y fácil de combinar para cualquier ocasión. La falda tiene un poco de tul abajo que le da un poco de volumen y movimiento. Les cuento que Shopbop esta ofreciendo 25% de descuento en cualquier cosa que compren. Estoy pensando en comprarme esta cartera y este vestido. Que les parece este look? Les gusto el forro?

Happy Monday Amigos! Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. Fringe is definitely one of Spring’s biggest trends, get ready to see fringe on everything from jackets, heels, skirts and purses. This jacket is the perfect way to add a little “flavour” to any outfit; you could easily wear it with a white or black dress, or perhaps with jeans and short booties for a on-the-go look. I wore this jacket with my go-to white jeans from J.Brand and the always on trend navy striped tee. I wanted to capture the movement of the fringe and kept on twirling and spinning around to the point of feeling dizzy…haha what do you guys think? Are you able to see they way the fringe moves? Will you be wearing any fringe items this season?

Hola a todos, espero que hayan pasado un buen fin de semana! Les cuento que los “flecos” están super de moda para la primavera. Lo van a ver en chaquetas como esta, tacones, faldas y vestidos. Esta chaqueta de flecos es una manera super moderna de darle un poco de “flavour” a cualquier look, desde un vestido negro o blanco o con jeans. Yo combine esta chaqueta con mis jeans blancos y una camisa de rayas que siempre esta a la moda. Quise tomarle una foto al movimiento de la chaqueta al caminar y comencé a dar un poco de vueltas hasta que me sentí mal…haha. Que les parecen las fotos?
