I spent the weekend in Chicago with my husband and catching up with old friends. On Saturday night we went to dinner at Dos Urban Cantina, a great Mexican restaurant which I highly recommend. I wore this embroidered red beaded skater dress and received tons of compliments. This dress is everything I look for in a weekend attire. The open back adds a touch of sexiness to this dress and the movement is playful and beautiful while walking. The red beaded embellished design is elegant and the long bell sleeves adds a touch of drama. I added a pair of classic black heels but this dress can also be styled with open toe silver sandals, nude heels or something different like these red flats. By the time you read this I will be on a flight heading to South America, follow me on Snapchat (chicflavours) to find out where I’m heading. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and I look forward to hearing your feedback.

Les cuento que pase el fin de semana en Chicago con mi esposo y unos amigos. El sábado fuimos a cenar un restaurante mexicano, Dos Urban Cantina que se los super recomiendo. Use este vestido de lentejuelas que ofrece todo lo que quiero en un vestido. El detalle de la espalda abierta es sexy, el movimiento de la falda es super coqueto. Las mangas son un toque dramático y aun así el vestido es algo clásico y elegante. Combine este vestido con tacones negro, pero tambien se puede usar con sandalias color hueso o estas flats rojas. Les cuento que cuando lean este post voy a estar en el aeropuerto camino a Sudamerica, siganme en Snapchat para ver a donde voy. Gracias por leer este post y saludos!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Coats: 

Workout: 

Shoes:

Dresses:

Happy Friday Amigos and greetings from Chicago! After a very long flight from Dubai to Toronto and Toronto to Chicago I’m back in the beautiful Windy City. You can follow along Snapchat (chicflavours) and Instagram for more on my trip. Above I’m sharing my favorite pics from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ve been a fan of Nordstrom for as long as I can remember, they have exceptional customer service and a wide range of brands for every budget. I particularly love all the workout gear (you can never have enough) and these gorgeous booties. Which item is your favorite? Let me know below below.

Dress/Vestido: C/MEO Collective (ON SALE),  Shoes/Zapatos: DVF very old (similar, similar),  Purse/Cartera: OTAAT/MYERS (also love this color)

A quick hello as I’m packing and getting ready for a long flight back to Chicago. I wore this rich silk shirtdress for a night out a few weeks back. I love the soft material and beautiful color on this C/MEO silk luxe shirtdress. This shirtdress is different from anything else I have in my closet, the cut out in the back adds a sexy touch to the look and the flare dramatic long sleeves are playful and different. This dress is definitely a date night, going out attire. You can style it with black heels as seen above or with nude mules. I added this cute black purse, I love the oversize gold ring and it also comes in a nude color. What do you think of this shirtdress? Hope you like it as much as I do.

black and white color-blocked outfit

Top/Camisa: C/MEO Collective, Skirt/Falda: C/MEO Collective, Shoes/Zapatos: Valentino (similar),  Purse/Cartera: Soraya Hennessy (COMING SOON), Sunglasses/Lentes: Dior

This might be perhaps one of my favorite outfits yet. This black and white color-blocked outfit is classic and fun at the same time. I spotted this skirt on Nordstrom and when I saw the matching top I knew they were both coming home with me. This C/MEO Collective black and white wrap midi skirt is bold, versatile and feminine at the same time. I styled it with this matching top but you can also wear it with a black or white long sleeve shirt for a more business setting attire or a yellow and red top for a night out. I added this mathching clutch from Soraya Hennessy, so much more to come. I have to say what I liked most about this outfit is how I felt while wearing it. I felt I had my “power suit” on and could walk into any meeting and kill it, what do you think? This will be yet another busy week, I’m heading to Dubai tomorrow afternoon for a full day of meetings and traveling back to Chicago Wednesday night. You can follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (chicflavours) for all the behind the scenes on my travels. Thank you for reading and I look forward to your comments on this post. Also don’t forget to check the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I got these bootscoat and fleece hoodie.

Este puede ser que sea uno de mis looks preferidos! La combinacion del blanco con negro es elegante y clásica. Cuando vi esta falda en Nordstrom y el top con el mismo estampado pues supe que tenia que comprar estas piezas. Esta midi skirt de la marca C/MEO Collective es versátil y femenina. Se puede usar para el trabajo con una camisa negra o blanca sencilla. Yo cambine la falda con este top del mismo estampado y esta cartera de Soraya Hennessy (que emoción). Les cuento que esta semana voy a estar ocupada, mañana martes voy saliendo para un día entero de reuniones en Dubai. El miércoles en la noche me monto en otro vuelo para Chicago, recuerden que pueden seguirme por Instagram o Snapchat (chicflavours) para ver mas de mis viajes. Gracias por leer y espero ver sus comentarios sobre este look!

comfortable travel outfit

Blazer/Chaqueta: J.Crew (also love this one),  Tee/Camisa: LOFT,  Jeans: Topshop,  Shoes/Zapatos: Adidas (classic here),  Backpack/Bulto: Madewell, Sunglasses/Lentes: Fendi

One of the questions I get ask over and over again is, “how do you stay chic while traveling such long hours.” The truth is it has taken me at least a year to master my fashion and beauty routine while traveling. I first like to be as comfortable as possible, I’m often on the road for over 20 hours between Chicago and Abu Dhabi and being comfortable is key to staying chic. First thing is first, comfortable shoes. I either recommend these classic Adidas which are extremely comfortable or a pair of Nike. I always like to wear a white shirt or white tee underneath a blazer, it really goes with everything. A blazer is elegant and classic and is always good to look the part during traveling as you never know who you might bumped into or meet. I always have a rollaway with me and a backpack or tote bag that fits my most important things. This Madewell backpack fits my laptop and other major accessories like my camera. A few tricks I can recommend besides wearing a comfortable travel is drink lots and lots of water, avoid watching three movies and actually get some sleep. I always carry a toothbrush with me, Moroccan dry shampoo and oil sheets for my face. Do you have any tricks when it comes to traveling? Would love to hear them in the comment section below! Have a great weekend.

TIE-WAIST ROMPER

Jumpsuit/Braga: J.Crew,  Earings/Aretes: Kenneth Jay Lane (also here),  Shoes/Zapatos: Cole Hann,  Purse/Cartera: Soraya Hennessy (COMING SOON), Sunglasses/Lentes: Fendi

While back in Chicago I wore this bright tie-waist romper for a stroll down Michigan Avenue. Rompers are a fun alternative from dresses and skirts; they are playful, different and can be styled in countless of ways. This J.Crew romper has a fun tie-waist band, side pockets and modest v-neck. I added a pop of color with these stunning Kenneth Jay Lane turquoise earrings (constantly a best seller) and this colorful Soraya Hennessy clutch. These earrings keep selling out time after time; the turquoise always adds a fun pop of color, the gold version are elegant and the white pair are perfect for the summer. You can wear this romper with sandals as seen above for a feminine summer look, add a pair of sneakers for a casual day, wedges for a summer lunch or black heels for a night out. After reading the comments left behind on the J.Crew site regarding this orange jumpsuit I couldn’t help but laugh to myself. Most of the comments said something along the lines, “this looks like a Halloween custom” or “I would never wear an orange jumpsuit unless I was in jail.” Yes, this is a bright orange jumpsuit but I believe its all about how you style and wear the clothes. Who’s with me? Would you wear this orange jumpsuit? Looking forward to reading your comments on this outfit!

__________________________________________________________________________

Mientras en Chicago use este mismo look para caminar por Michigan Avenye. Las bragas me parece super juveniles y algo diferente de los vestidos y faldas que siempre uso. La verdad es que me dio mucha risa los comentarios en la pagina de J.Crew sobre esta braga, la gente diciendo, “que parece algo para Halloween” o que “solo usarían esto si estuvieran en la carcel.” La verdad es que creo que la gente se deja influenciar por otros comentarios, y para mi es sobre como una combina la ropa y como uno se siente. Que les parece? Yo, combine esta braga con estos aretes de la marca Kenneth Jay Lane y estas sandalias. Estos aretes son bellísimos en persona y tambien vienen en diferentes colores como blanco y naranja. Muchas gracias por leer y espero ver sus comentarios sobre este look! Saludos!

I’m sharing some exciting news today, please stay with me for the entire post. I had the most amazing week in Santorini and flew back to Abu Dhabi last night. After all the traveling during the last few months I want to focus on catching up on emails, hitting the gym and most importantly Soraya Hennessy. Soraya Hennessy (Hennessy is my married name) is my brand which I’ve been working on for the past three months. It will include clutches, bucket bags (as seen above) and different accessories. Most importantly all the purses are 100% handmade by a group of Wayuu artisan women in Venezuela. For now this is all I can share with you but I promise to share more details when the site goes live. Thank you in advance for all the love and support. I styled this handmade braided mochila (Spanish word for bucket bag) with a pair of fun and edgy white jeans and simple summer embroidered top. The fringe details of these jeans (also love these) add a playful touch to an otherwise traditional pair of white jeans. As mentioned on this post, embroidered tops are a big trend this summer. This top from Madewell is lightweight and the red embroidery screams summer. I would really appreciate your honest feedback on this post and most importantly on this braided mochila. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you.

Quiero compartir una noticia con ustedes, asi que espero que puedan leer todo el post. Pase una semana increíble en Santorini y ayer en la noche me regrese a Abu Dhabi. Y despues de un mes de estar viajando me quiero concentrar en responder todos mis emails, ir al gym, pasar tiempo con mi esposo y sobretodo en Soraya Hennessy. Soraya Hennessy (Hennessy is mi apellido de casada) es mi nueva marca en que llevo tres meses trabajando. La marca va a incluir sobres, mochilas (como la de arriba) y accesorios. Lo mas importante es que las carteras y accesorios son todas hecho 100% a mano por un grupo de mujeres Wayuu en Venezuela. Muchas gracias a todos por su apoyo y enseguida que pueda compartir mas detalles con ustedes creanme que seran los primeros en saber. Combine esta mochila trenzada con estos jeans blancos y esta camisa de encaje. Estos jeans son un poco de diferente por la franja de abajo que la de un movimiento ideal. Espero que les guste este look y me encantaría escuchar sus comentarios sobre esta cartera. Saludos!

Happy Friday Amigos! I had the most magical week in Chicago, spending time with my mom and enjoying the summer season but most importantly working on a secret project! Stay tuned for more! This short suit was the perfect outfit for a summer stroll, I love the playful polka-dot print. The shorts were a bit longer than normal but the stretch waist made these shorts extremely comfortable. The matching jacket is lightweight and can also be styled separately with blue denim or white jeans. I kept the outfit causal with these black sandals, which also come in navy and simple black purse. I’m flying out to Abu Dhabi later tonight and spending 4th of July with my friends in Abu Dhabi. Do any of you have any exciting plans for the holiday weekend?

Feliz Viernes a todos! Pase una de las mejores semanas en Chicago con mi mama y disfrutando del verano pero en especial trabajando en un proyecto personal y muy importante que pronto compartire con todos ustedes. Este traje corte fue perfecto para un día de verano, los shorts son super cómodos y el material es supe ligero. Los polka-dot son super coquetos y juveniles. La chaqueta del mismo estampado tambien se puede usar separada con jeans o pantalones blancos. Les cuento que hoy en la tarde voy saliendo a Abu Dhabi. Ustedes que planes tienen para este fin de semana? Gracias por leer y saludos a todos!
