Happy Friday Amigos! I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend! Can you guys believe is Christmas already next week? I’m currently in Aruba and will be here until the 26th and then jetting off somewhere else…what is everyone doing for Christmas and New Years? Would love to hear your plans…Mucho love– S

 Dress/Vestido: ASOS, Earmuffs: Adrianne Landau also love these and these,  Shoes/Zapatos: Vince Camuto c/o, similar, similarSunglasses/Lentes: Ray Ban, Purse/Cartera: H&M

I wore this cheerful and colorful outfit out to dinner while in Chicago and received tons of compliments. It’s easy to feel drawn to darker colors during the winter season but I always make an effort and wear some bright colors in hopes to brighten up the day. I love this pink check dress from ASOS and these beautiful blue earmuffs. These earmuffs are a guarantee way to add a pop of color to any winter outfit. I love how bright and warm they are. I added these gorgeous suede boots from Vince Camuto. The elastic material on the back makes these boots comfortable and easy to wear with jeans or tights. Even though I took these fun pictures in Chicago I am currently enjoying some much warmer weather in Aruba, you can follow my travels and more personal pictures on my Instagram account. Thank you so much for reading and hope everyone is having a great week so far.

Use este mismo look para una cena en Chicago y todo el mundo comento que bonito y colorido era! Es muy fácil sentirse atraida a los colores oscuros durante el invierno pero siempre me gusta agregarle un poco de color a mis looks especialmente durante los días oscuros y fríos de Chicago. Me el color y lo comodo que es este vestido de ASOS y estas orejeras azules. Estas orejeras te garantiza darle color a cualquier look de invierno. Finalmente agrege estas botas super comodas y elegante de Vince Camuto. Aunque me tome estas fotos en Chicago por los momentos estoy disfrutando del sol y la playa en la isla de Aruba, me puedes seguir y ver mas fotos de mis viajes en mi cuenta de Instagram. Muchas gracias por leer!

Happy happy Monday Amigos! I’ve been quite busy these past few days; after being away for three months I travelled back to Chicago and loved catching up with some friends and doing some Christmas shopping. Yesterday morning I took a direct flight to the island of Aruba and I’m beyond excited to be here over the Christmas break. As you can see by the John Hancock building on the back of these pics I couldn’t resist but take some outfits pictures in Chicago. One of the biggest trends this fall/winter season are capes…I love the idea of adding a little “flavour” to your outfit with a fun and elegant cape like this one…I mean how cute is the bow in the front? I added this must-have and versatile navy striped turtleneck from J.Crew and my go-to fedora. While walking all over the city I wore these amazing black botties from Via Spiga and omg! I couldn’t believe how comfortable they were and I love the side zip zipper and slick leather. Thank you so much for reading and can’t wait to read your comments!

Feliz Lunes a todos! Les cuento que he estado super ocupada ya que el Miercoles en la mañana salí de Dubai para Chicago a pasarme unos días, viendo a mis amigos y comprando unos regalos de navidad. El Domingo salí de Chicago directo para la isla de Aruba donde voy a pasar las navidades. Mientras en Chicago me tome estas fotos que me encantaron! Unas de las tendencias mas populares de este ano han sido las capas, me parecen super elegante y una manera diferente de darle un poco de “flavour” a tu look! Combine esta camisa de rayas y mi sombrero preferido con este look! Que les parece? Mientras en Chicago use estas botas de plataforma super cómodas y elegantes. Espero que les guste este look! Saludos–

highlights

grand mosque abu dhabi

I can’t believe its been three months since my husband and I packed our bags and moved to the other side of the world. Now that I’m back in Chicago (for a few days) I’ve been reflecting on all the different experiences we’ve had. I wanted to share with all of you some of the highlights of the past three months.

Words cannot describe the beauty of the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, which also happens to be the biggest mosque in the UAE. The architecture, the marble, the carpet inside and the chandelier makes the mosque a must-see.

sand surfing in abu dhabi

Ever since moving I’ve wanted to go on a desert tour but at the time it was way to warm! I can now say that the wait was totally worth it! We went dune bashing, camel riding and sand skiing. I will confess ( very embarrassing) that all the screaming and turning while dune bashing made me sick, it was like being on a roller coaster in the middle of the desert! haha

On December the 2nd the UAE celebrated its 43rd National Day. What? Well what I’ve learned in the past 3 months is that the National Day represents the date when the UAE was actually formed. It also means vacations days, fireworks, fighter jets and more celebrations…

Taking a helicopter tour over Dubai might have been one of my favorite experiences so far. Seeing the man-made islands roughly form a world map is pretty espectacular. The picture/house you see above is owned by formular 1 driver, Michael Schumacher.

One of the biggest highlights so far? Having both of my brothers visit…

Hope everyone is having a great week and thank you so much for reading but most importantly thank you so much for following and being a part of this exciting journey…

lilly pulitzer maxi dress

Dress/Vestido: Lilly Pulitzer (similar, similar),  Shoes/Zapatos: Jimmy Choo (similar)Earrings/Aretes: Lisi Lerch (also love these)

How amazing is this maxi dress from Lilly Pulitzer? It’s no secret I’m a big fan of the fun and cheerful colors Lilly Pulitzer has to offer and this elegant and sexy blue maxi dress is no exception. I absolutely love the lace on this dress and the sheer sleeves adds a little “flavour” to the look. What do you guys think of this dress? Do you like it as much as I do? On the personal side, I’m heading to Chicago tonight for a few days and then heading to the beautiful island of Aruba to spend Christmas with my family. I keep hearing how cold Chicago has been but the truth is I’m actually looking forward to some cooler weather and seeing all the Christmas lights on Michigan Avenue and hearing Christmas music every time I walk in a store…so excited! What is everyone doing for Christmas and New Years?

______________________________________________

Este vestido de Lilly Pulitzer es espectacular no les parece? Siempre me han encanto los colores vivos que la marca Lilly Pulitzer ofrece y este vestido largo de encaje es uno de mis preferidos. Me encantan las mangas y el abrimiento en la falda del vestido, que le da un toque de sexy. Que les parece el look? Les gusta este vestido tanto como a mi? Les cuento que hoy en la noche voy saliendo para Chicago por algunos dias y después para Aruba para pasar las Navidades con mi familia. He escuchado que esta haciendo mucho frío en Chicago y la verdad es que me hace falta el frío y ver las luces de Navidad prendídas en Michigan Avenue al igual que entrar en las tiendas y escuchas música Navidena. Y ustedes? Que tienen planiado para las Navidades?

JOA striped skirt

Skirt/Falda: JOA (similar, similar, similar),   Shirt/Camisa: ZARA,  Shoes/Zapatos: Jimmy Choo,  Hat/Sombrero: Sensi Studio, Sunglasses/Lentes: Ray-Ban ( similar)

I wore this fun and cheerful outfit during brunch with the family and love how it combines some of my favorite items into one outfit. A white button down has become my go-to item in Abu Dhabi as I can easily pair it with pretty much everything in my closet. This time around I wanted to keep the outfit a bit more casual and tied the shirt on the front and wore this fun midi skirt from JOA (also seen here). I added a little “flavour” to the look with my go-to fedora and some delicate hoop earrings. This outfit represents everything this blog is about, timeless pieces with a modern twist and a little flavour. What do you guys think? Thank you so much for reading and I can’t wait to read your comments about this look.

Este mismo look lo use para un almuerzo con la familia y me encanta ya que combine varios de mis piezas preferidas. Por ejemplo una camisa manga larga blanca y sencilla se puede combinar con casi todo y esta vez la combine con esta falda celeste de rayas de la marca JOA. Le agregue un poco de “flavour” al look con mi sombrero preferido y unos aretes de aro. Muchas gracias por leer y espero leer sus comentarios.

Hello Amigos, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I have to say it has been crazy busy for me, we’ve had a total of 10 family members join us for the week and I’ve been playing tour guide showing our family our new home. We also celebrated my older brothers 29th bday and my husbands big 30th bday! What was everyone up to this weekend? Any major cyber monday shopping? I wore this absolutely stunning two-tone maxi dress during Thanksgiving dinner and loved how comfortable and flowy it was. The dress has a delicate yet sexy keyhole on the front with a front tie. I will say this dress rungs large and would highly recommend sizing down. I added a pop of color with this Rebecca Minkoff clutch and Ray-Ban sunglasses. Thank you so much for reading and I can’t wait to read your comments on this maxi dress.

Hola  a todos, espero que hayan tenido un buen fin de semana. Les cuento que la verdad he estado super ocupada ya que hemos tenido 10 familiares visitándonos y celebrando Thanksgiving, el cumpleaños de mi hermano y de mi esposo. Use este vestido para la cena de Thanksgiving y me encanto lo comido y suave que es. El color es super vivo y el largo del vestido lo hace ver super elegante. El vestido corre un poco grande así que les recomiendo una talla mas pequeña de lo normal. Le agregue un poco de color al look con esta cartera de Rebecca Minkoff y los lentes de Ray Ban, que les parece? Les gusta el look?

Dress/Vestido: Parker, Purse/Cartera: Kate Spade ( on sale), Shoes/Zapatos: Stuart Weitzman also love these

I love the bright color of this feminine yellow dress from Parker! I paired up this dress with this adorable and must have Kate Spade purse and my go-to wedges from Stuart Weitzman. This dress can easily be worn down with flats and a denim jacket. This dress is form fitting without being too tight or uncomfortable and the scalloped hem adds to the feminine flair of the dress. This week has already been crazy busy, we have 10 family members visiting us from Chicago, Boston and Venezuela.  My husband and I are so grateful that our family was able to fly all the way to Abu Dhabi and be with us to celebrate our first Thanksgiving in the UAE. Most of my days have been busy showing everyone around and catching up with my family. What does everyone have plan this Thanksgiving? I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend ahead and make sure to check back for the most amazing Black Friday sales.

Esta semana ha sido super ocupada ya que tengo a mi familia visitando para el dia de Thanksgiving. Ustedes que tienen planiado?
