Skirt/Falda: Ted Baker ( also love this one), Shirt/Camisa: Ted Baker, Bow/Corbata: ASOS, Purse/Cartera: Ted Baker, Bracelet/Pulsera: Jules Smith 

As you can see I have a thing for beautiful romantic skirts! Haha This one from Ted Baker has a unique color combination and cherry blossom print. I went for my go-to clean look with this timeless white button down and added a little “flavour” to the outfit with this oversize bow from ASOS. The skirt was a bit too “girly girly” for my style  so I though the bow added the perfect edge to it. What do you think? Do you like the addition of the bow?

Como puedev ver por los posts de esta semana me encantan las faldas! Haha Esta de Ted Baker tiene una combination de colores perfectos para la primavera. Combine la falda con una camisa blanca clasica y esta corbatica para darle un poco de “flavour” al look. La falda me parecio un poco juvenil para mi gusto asi que me parecio que el lazo le dio un toque diferente. Les gusta este look? Que les parece el lazo? Gracias por leer y saludos!

Happy Monday Amigos! I hope everyone had a great weekend. One of my new year resolution was to improve my photography skills and I finally had the time to take a weekend class where I learned all the basics and important tips to improve my traveling and blog pictures. On the other hand, how romantic and stunning is this maxi lace skirt from DKNY? This skirt might be one of the most feminine pieces in my closet. The sheer designs adds a touch of sexiness and elegance to the outfit. I kept the look classic and timeless by wearing this silk blouse from Everlane. I was first introduce to Everlane by my friend Bisera and after hearing her rave about it I decided to try it out. I love their classic clean look and timeless pieces and this silk top is the perfect example. Also how beautiful is the background on this picture? Thank you so much for reading and can’t wait to read your comments on this post!

Espero que todos hayan pasado un buen fin de semana! Les cuento que tome una clase de fotografía donde aprendí como usar mi cámara y espero poder tomar mejores fotos de mis viajes al igual que fotos para el blog. Ustedes que hicieron el fin? Que les parece esta falda super romántica de la marca DKNY? Esta falda de encaje es sumamente sexy pero a la misma vez clásica. Para mantener el look sofisticado use esta camisa de seda super sencilla de la marca Everlane. Nunca había escuchado de la marca hasta que mi mejor amiga Bisera me la menciono. Everlane se enfoca en ropa clásica y necesaria como esta camisa blanca.  Muchas gracias por leer y espero que les guste este look. Que les parece el fondo de estas fotos? Cada día consigo fondos y bellezas en la arquitectura de este país.

Dress/Vestido: Ted Baker ( tunic version),  Purse/Cartera: Ted Baker, Shoes/Zapatos: Louis Vuitton (similar here)

How beautiful is the movement on this floral pleated dress from Ted Baker? A few weeks ago I attended the Ted Baker’s Spring and Summer 2015 launch party in Dubai where I spotted this midi dress. This dress is the perfect wedding guest attire or would make the perfect outfit for any lunch or brunch this season. While scrolling through Instagram I came across a funny quote from Miranda Priestly, the iconic character from the movie The Devils Wears Prada which said, “florals for Spring….groundbreaking” and looking back I couldn’t help and laugh and think back to this dress. Certain trends will live forever such as nautical for summer or the LBD and of course floral patterns during Spring. There is something so refreshing about a beautiful multicolored floral print that never goes out of style, who’s with me? Thank you so much for reading and know that reading your comments are one of my favorite things to do!

Que les parece el movimiento de este vestido de la marca Ted Baker? Este vestido es perfecto para usar en una boda esta temporada o para cualquier almuerzo o desayune importante. Mientras chequeaba mi Instagram vi una foto que me causo mucha gracia del personaje de Miranda Priestly de la peluca Devil Wears Prada donde ella dice ” estampados floreados para primavera…que innovador.” Alguna tendencias siempre estarán de moda como un vestido negro para cualquier ocasión o usar algo náutico para el verano y por supuesto el look floreado para la primavera. Le gusta este look? Muchas gracias por leer y espero leer sus comentarios!

JOA skirts

 Top/Camisa: Stradivarius (similar here),  Skirt/Falda: JOA ( love this one and this one), Shoes/Zapatos: Steve Madden ( on sale)

STOP everything you’re doing and take a look at this tropical linen skirt from JOA. How amazing is the leafy print? While endlessly scrolling down on Shopbop.com this skirt instantly caught my eye! The leafy print and elastic band make this skirt a fun and casual addition to my skirt collection. I could have easily paired up the skirt with a black or white top but I added a little “flavour” to the outfit by pairing it up with this striped off-the-shoulder top. The red stripes and black and white print from the skirt create a refreshing contrast. One of the biggest trends this Spring are block sandals, these black double strapped sandals from Steve Madden are a total steal, they are extremely comfortable and can be worn with jeans, a skirt or a summery dress. You can shop below some of my favorite JOA and other midi skirts…Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to reading your feedback about this look. What do you think of this JOA skirt? How would you wear it?

________________________________________________________

Que les parece esta falda de la marca JOA? El estampado de las hojas y el material de lino hacen esta falda super deportiva y comoda. Pude haber combinado la falda con una camisa negra o blanca pero para darle un poco de “flavour” al look combine esta camisa de rayas rojas con la falda. El contraste de las rayas y el negro y blanco de la falda hacen un contraste super refrescante y diferente. Una de las tendencias mas grandes esta primavera son las sandalias con el tacon cuadrado, y estas Steve Madden son el ejemplo perfecto. El tacon es grueso y por eso son mas comodo, el negro hace estas sandalias versatil y facil de combinar con jeans, vestidos o faldas. Pueden ver otras de mis faldas preferidas abajo y espero leer sus comentarios sombre este look. Saludos –

Happy first day of Spring Amigos! Finally right? It has been a freezing and snowy winter for most of us and no matter where in the world you might be we can all agree we are happy Spring is finally here. I’m excited to finally share an outfit post from Dubai wearing this beautiful embroidered dress and one of my favorite trends this Spring a sleeveless and soft coat. I love how the wide straps on the dress stick out from the vest, this dress can easily be worn down for a day at the beach or pool with a pair of sandals. Finally I added these nude mules from Calvin Klein I bought on a major sale from Nordstorm Rack. I can literally wear these shoes with anything in my closet, the nude color is so versatile, these Vince mules are very similar and these ones are a total steal! Thank you so much for reading and hope everyone has a great weekend!

  Sweater/Sueter: 525 America,  Jeans: Levis, Scarf/Bufanda: H&M ( love this colorful one and this one), Purse/Cartera: Salvatore Ferragamo

One last outfit from my trip in DC,  a casual and colorful introduction to Spring. I love discovering new brands and was so happy to find this simple yet necessary grey sweater from the brand, 525 America. This sweater is warm and cozy and easy to wear with pretty much anything. I added a pop of color to the otherwise black and grey outfit with this bright scarf from H&M. Scarves are such a simple and easy way to add a pop of color to your outfit, I’m absolutely obsessed with this one from Kate Spade, I mean how cute are the pom-poms? Thank you so much for reading and can’t wait to read your comments!

Les queria mostrar mi ultimo look de mi viaje en DC, un look super casual y colorido para esta Primavera. Me encanta descubrir nuevas marcas asi que cuando me compre este suéter de la marca 525 America quede super sorprendida. La calidad me pareció buena, el suéter es super suave y comodo y perfecto para esta temporada. Le agregue un poco de color al look con esta bufanda de H&M. Una bufanda es una manera super sencilla y rapida de darle un poco de color y vida a cualquier look, por los momentos me fascina esta bufanda de Kate Spade, que les pareces los pom-poms a los lados?

gingham outfit for spring

 Top/Camisa: ZARA,  Shorts: ZARA, Coat/Chaqueta: H&M (similar here and here),  Shoes/Zapatos: Calvin Klein, Purse/Cartera: Gucci (similar here and here)

This Spring promises a lot of fringe, block sandals, floral pastel patterns and perhaps one of my favorite trends, gingham. Get ready to see this fun pattern on anything from skirts, pants and wrap dresses and in this case high-waisted shorts and top. No matter how you style it, the gingham pattern will be a fun refreshment in your closet. This time around I went for the matchy-matchy trend, matching both the shorts and top in the same pattern but I can also see myself wearing these shorts again with a simple t.shirt or a white button down. I added this white, light trench coat from H&M for a fun and cheerful Spring outfit. I hope everyone had a great weekend and thank you so much for reading. Which trend are you most excited  for Spring?

Esta temporada promete colores pasteles, sandalias con plataformas cuadradas y unas de mis tendencias preferidas, este estampado conocido como “gingham”. Este estampado lo van a encontrar en faldas, vestidos, chaquetas y en este caso en estos shorts y camisa. No les parece este look super refrescante y algo diferente? Siempre me ha gustados la elegancia de un traje que combina la parte de abajo con la de arriba. También puedo combinar estos shorts con una camisa blanca o una camiseta. Finalmente combine el look con esta chaqueta blanca para un look refrescante. Diganme que tendencia les gusta mas esta primavera? Déjenme saber abajo con sus comentarios!

( some cafecito and scrolling down my IG)

It’s been a while since I last wrote a lifestyle post so I wanted to go ahead and write about something that has taken over most of our lives, Instagram. I will confess I did not have Instagram until perhaps two years ago. WHATTTT! Yes! My friends kept on telling me about it but I used to follow bloggers and brands the old fashion way, going to their websites. Obviously things have changed…haha. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite and most inspirational accounts I personally enjoy following. I follow a few travel and a few hundred fashion brands/bloggers but here are my top five. Do you have any recommendations? Who are your favorite bloggers or accounts? Please share them, I would love to take a look! OH and don’t forget to follow my adventures here

Travel:

1. Dame Traveler: CAUTION: this account will make you want to travel…haha. Dame Traveler features women traveling all over the world! Scroll down her account, grab a glass of wine, a pen and paper and start making your travel bucketlist because Dame Traveler will inspire you travel to new places you never even thought of, check it out and let me know what you think.

2. TravelSouthAmerica: One of my biggest regrets in life was not traveling South America when I had the chance but seeing these pictures just makes me excited about planning a trip to Argentina or Colombia in the near future.

3. Beautiful Destination: With over 3.0 millions Instagram followers you know this page is a must-have for anyone who enjoys seeing travel pictures or just beautiful pictures in general.

4. Conde Nast Traveler: Conde Nast…need to say more?

5. Huffington Post: Not only travel pictures but fashion, world news, trends and more.

Fashion:

1. Brazilian Blogger Thassia Naves: Guys, I’m pretty obsessed with this blogger! haha The funny thing is I don’t understand her captions because she writes in Portuguese but her style is imppacable !!

2. Shopbop: Shopbop might be my number one destination when it comes to online shopping. Free 3 day shipping anyone? You can follow their account for the latest fashion trends…

3. Julia Hengel: Some of you might be following Julia already and for obvious reasons, she has some of the most beautiful pictures I’ve seen in any blog and I personally love following her her fashion and travels.

4. WhoWhatWear: Follow along for the latest fashion related news, trends, streetstyle and celebrity coverage.

5. Elizabeth Keene: Beautiful person both inside and out! I’ve been following Elizabeth for some time now, I think I was attracted to her bright colors, or perhaps it was the fact she can wear any colored lipstick and look amazing but it was meeting her during Fashion Week back in February that made me like her even more!

I also love following Jane from FitFabFunMom, Pam from PamHetlinger and my friend Ashley behind the account Mushroomstew in Chicago. Hope everyone has a great weekend and I look forward to hearing your comments on this post!

Coat/Chaqueta: ASOS ( also love this one),  Leggings/Pantalones: H&M,  Shoes/Zapatos: Vince ( obsessed with these), Purse/Cartera: Rebecca Minkoff ( loving this big tote)

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! I wanted to share another post from Washington DC where I wore the sleeveless jacket which I predict will be a big trend this Spring! The contrast of the pink faux fur on this ASOS jacket adds a little “flavour” to the look. I wore these black leggings from H&M ( very surprised by their quality) and these amazing booties from Vince. These are my first pair of Vince shoes and they won’t be my last! I absolutely love how comfortable they are and the grey colors pretty much goes with anything in my closet, I know I’ll be wearing them all Spring. I bought these booties on a major sale on Nordstorm Rack but I found these very similar ones on Shopbop. What do you guys think of the sleeveless jacket trend? Could you see yourself wearing it? What about these booties, are you loving them as much as I do?

Queria mostrarle otro look que use mientras estaba en Washington DC cuando use esta chaqueta sin mangas, que la verdad creo que va hacer una tenencia popular esta temporada. Me encanta el contaste rosado con el gris, y para darle aun mas color combine esta cartera azul de la maraca Rebecca Minkoff. Combine esta chaqueta con unos leggings y estas botas de la marca Vince. La verdad es que es mi primer par de zapatos de esta marca y quede enamorada. Estos zapatos son super cómodos y el color gris es super versatil. Que les parece este look? Ustedes han usado una chaqueta similar sin mangas? Déjenme saber en los comentarios de abajo.
