Hope everyone is having a great week so far! While back in Chicago my friend Bisera asked me how I go about planning my outfits and styling them. Honestly there is really no formula…it always depends on how I’m feeling, the weather and my schedule that day. One thing is for sure…I always like to be comfortable, on trend and elegant. One of my favorite brands when looking for classic items is DKNY, as seen previously on this post. When I saw these lightweight silk stripe pants I knew I could probably wear them 10 different ways. Either for a night out as seen below or perhaps with a grey tee and sneakers while running errands or a lunch look with a white blouse and chunky sandals. I created a contrast between the bold and solid stripes on the pants and this light striped shirt. I added a pop of color ( of course) with these forever on trend leopard pumps. If you don’t have a pair of leopard pumps you should definitely think about investing in a pair. It’s a fun way to spice up any outfit. Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to reading your comments.

Mientras en Chicago mi amiga Bisera me pregunto que como hacia para planiar mis looks y como hacia para combinarlos. Y si les soy sincera no hay una formula…siempre depende en como me sienta ese día, el clima y las cosas que tengo que hacer ese dia. Algo que siempre tengo en mente es que me gusta vestirme cómoda, a la moda y elegante. Cuando busco prendas clásicas y elegantes siempre paso por la tienda DKNY ya que siempre consigo cosas espectaculares como esta falda. Cuando vi estos pantalones super cómodos de rayas de la marca DKNY sabia que los puedo combinar de muchas maneras. Los puedo combinar para la noche como el look en las fotos, para un look mas sencillo con zapatos cómodos como estos, o para un almuerzo con una camisa blanca y sandalias. Combine los pantalones con esta camisa de rayas para crear un contraste entre las rayas. Finalmente le agregue al look estos zapatos de leopardo para darle un poco de color. Muchas gracias por leer, espero que les guste el look!

Happy Monday Everyone! How was everyone’s weekend? By the time you read this I will be on a morning flight to the beautiful island of Aruba. I’m heading down for a week and spending some quality time with my family. Before leaving Chicago I took these colorful pictures around the Lincoln Park Zoo area while wearing this vibrant and bold green leaves print dress from Kate Spade. Doesn’t it just scream Spring? The unusual semi quilted material of the dress makes this dress extremely comfortable, fitted to the body and therefore so feminine and chic. Kate Spade has always been one of my all-time favorite brands, I love the combination between feminine bold colors and patterns and playful fashion. By far one of my favorite things about Kate Spade is that you can spot a Kate Spade dress or accessory from miles away…you don’t really need to say you’re wearing Kate Spade for people to know. Check below for some of my favorite Kate Spade dresses this season…thanks for reading and I look forward to reading your comments.

Feliz Lunes a todos! Como pasaron el fin de semana? Les cuanto que manana a primera hora salgo para la isla de Aruba a pasar unos dias con mi familia. Antes de irme me tome estas fotos en el famoso zoologico de Lincoln Park en Chicago usando este vestido de Kate Spade con estampados de plantas. No les parece perfecto para la primavera? El material es bastante comodo, ajustado al cuerpo y femenino. Kate Spade es una de esas marcas que son famosas por su estilo de ropa y estampados…que sin decir que tienes puesto Kate Spade todo el mundo sabe que tienes una prenda de la famosa marca Kate Spade. Una marca vibrante y reconocible…abajo comparto uno de mis vestido preferidos de Kate Spade. Muchas gracias por leer!

A romantic white lace dress for this Wednesday! I’m currently back in Chicago feeling a bit under the weather…I think all the traveling finally got to me. I’ve always been a big fan of Ann Taylor and while visiting their Michigan Avenue location I couldn’t believe all the effortless chic summer dresses they had, I also love this one.  This dress is a must-have for the summer season, it makes the perfect dress for any lunch or afternoon activity and it can easily be dressed up with pumps for a night out. I attached the spaghetti straps to the dress for some support and this classic navy blazer. I hope everyone is having a great week so far and I look forward to reading your comments.

Este vestido blanco en particular se puede usar durante el día con plataformas o sandalias o con tacones para la noche. Le agregue las tiritas para un poco mas soporte y esta chaqueta super clásica. Muchas gracias por leer y saludos desde Chicago.

Happy Monday Amigos! How was everyone’s weekend? I was lucky enough to fly to Boston and spend the weekend with my family celebrating both my younger brother’s graduation and Mother’s Days. I wore this outfit last week while out to dinner with my husband and sister-in-law and received tons of compliments on this colorful and unique blouse from Doll Memories. While at dinner my sister-in-law asked me, “are those macarons on your shirt” haha and yes they sure are! She then said, ” omg its perfect for you” meaning it goes perfectly with my sweet tooth…haha. I was instantly captivated by the the unique and playful prints Doll Memories offers, I mean how cute is this sweater?  This blouse can be styled for an elegant outing as seen below or  pair up with denims and wedges for a casual occasion. What do you all think about this blouse? Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to reading your comments.

Espero que todos hayan pasado un buen fin de semana! Yo la pase por Boston con mi familia festejando la graduación de mi  hermano al igual que el día de las madres. Les cuento que use este mismo look la semana pasada con mi esposo y mi cunada. En la cena mi cunada me pregunta, que si esos eran dulces pintados en mi camisa? y tambien me dijo “la camisa es perfecta para ti”…ya que consumo tanto dulce…haha. La camisa es sumamente suave y comoda. Me encanta que el estampado es algo diferente a cualquier otra camisa que he visto. También se puede usar para un look elegante como el mío o con unos jeans y plataformas para un look sencillo. Que les parece la camisa? Gracias por leer y espero leer sus comentarios.

must see in Jamaica

If you follow me on Instagram then you know I was in Jamaica over the weekend for one my best friends wedding. After such a long and crazy flight from Abu Dhabi my husband and I knew we wanted to tag on a few days after the wedding and explore the beautiful island of Jamaica. It was my first time in Jamaica and I was surprised by its diverse topography, from crystal clear beaches to mountains and rainforest. Below are my must-see and do’s while visiting Jamaica.

1. Stay or visit the Round Hill Resort in Montego Bay. Round Hill is known to be Ralph Lauren’s top destination while visiting Jamaica, both the hotel rooms and restaurant were design by the legendary designer. Also don’t forget to try the rum punch…amazing.

2. While at Round Hill try their spa and get a massage with a view to the water.

3. Visit the “7 Mile Beach” in Negril, Jamaica. You can rent chairs and enjoy the gorgeous beaches, walk around and buy some local artisan.

4. While at Negril make sure to stop by the Tensing Pen Resort and jump off the cliff or bridge into the crystal blue waters…not sure I’ve ever seen these beautiful shades of blue before…

5. Rick’s Cafe…very touristy, great views and atmosphere .

6. Mayfield Falls- if you’re feeling adventurous and want to do something completely different from sitting on the beach and drinking frozen cocktails then Mayfield Falls is your place. It’s a swimming and walking tour around different falls…get ready to climb on rocks, jump from trees and swim in cold yet refreshing natural waters. This was definitely the highlight of my trip…if you do end up going make sure to ask for Dennis as your tour guide.

Anthropologie lace dresses

Dress/Vestido: Anthropologie ( obsessed with this one), Shoes/Zapatos: Stuart Weitzman, Hat/Sombrero: Anthropologie ( similar & similar), Purse/Cartera: Rebecca Minkoff ( LOVE this one)

While scrolling down the Anthropologie website I came across this beautiful and romantic scalloped dress. I was attracted to the baby blue color and the feminine cut-out details. This dress could be worn for any summer outing like seen below with comfortable wedges and a floppy hat or with classic nude or black pumps or even dress down with tan/brown sandals. I love the way the dress fitted and accentuated my curves. I would suggest perhaps trying it on in person before ordering or ordering a size bigger as a backup size. I added a little flavour to the  outfit with this fun and vibrant mini tote bag from Rebecca Minkoff. Unfortunately this color is sold out but Nordstrom offers five other different colors and I can’t wait to get this one from Shopbop. Thank you for reading and I look forward to reading your thoughts on this dress. By the time you read this I will be on a plane on my way to Boston…I know another flight! haha You can follow my travels here.

_________________________________________________

Ya que el verano se acerca hay vestidos por todos lados y este vestido de la marca Anthropologie me encanto por su color y los detalles de la falda del vestido. Me parece super romantico y clasico. Se puede usar para cualquier evento este verano con un sombrero y plataformas como las mias o también se puede usar con sandalias para un look mas casual. El vestido es apretado en la cintura dandole un forma muy femenina al vestido. Les recomiendo ir a la tienda y ver como les queda el vestido antes de pedirlo ya que creo que corre un poco pequeño. Le di un poco de color al atuendo con esta cartera de la marca Rebecca Minkoff, este color ya no esta a la venta pero Nordstrom tiene diferentes colores y me encanta este color que tiene Shopbop. Les cuento que mañana témprano salgo para Boston.  Muchas gracias por leer y espero leer sus comentarios sobre este vestido.

the best shirtdresses 2015

Dress/Vestido: DVF ( also here),  Shoes/Zapatos: Gucci ( old),  Purse/Cartera: Rebecca Minkoff ( ON SALE) also love this one

Happy Monday Amigos! Now that I’m back on this side of the pond I have a long list of different events such as weddings and graduations I will be attending over the next few weeks. I bought this bold floral shirtdress from DVF and thought it would make the perfect outfit for my brother’s graduation in Boston later this week or for any lunch meeting. I love the bright colors on this dress, its extremely comfortable and feminine. As you can see it was a little windy when I took these pictures last week in Chicago which created a beautiful movement. You could either tie the belt like a bow like I did above or perhaps on the side or even wear it without. Before buying the dress I noticed some reviews mentioned it ran small but personally I thought it was true to size. I also love the maxi dress version of this dress and this white shift dress from DVF.  Finally I added a pop of color to the outfit ( I know even more color) with this bright blue ‘Leo Clutch’ from Rebecca Minkoff. Do any of you have any weddings or graduations this summer? Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to reading your comments!

__________________________________________________

Les cuento que ahora que estoy de regreso por este lado del mundo tengo varias bodas y eventos que tengo que atender. Me compre este vestido super colorido de la marca DVF que me parece perfecto para la graduacion de mi hermano menor en Boston a finales de la semana. El vestido es super comodo y femenino. Como pueden ver había un poco de viento en Chicago cuendo me tome las fotos que creo un movimiento muy lindo en el vestido. El lazo lo pueden usar como yo en el centro, o tal vez a un lado o tambien se puede usan sin el lazo. Antes de comprar el vestido lei unos comentarios que el vestido corre un poco pequeño pero en mi opinion corre igual y use mi misma talla de siempre. También me encanta este vestido en su version largo y este vestido blanco. Finalmente agregue un poco mas de color con esta cartera azul de Rebecca Minkoff. Que les parece? Les gusta el look?

Jacket/Chaqueta: GAP,  Top/Camisa: ASOS (old),  Pants/Pantalones: GAP (similar style)Shoes/Zapatos: Converse, Backpack/Bulto: Everlane 

I left my high heels and maxi dresses behind and traded them for this casual on-the-go look! I mean I needed to be comfortable to climb on one of Chicago’s most popular hotel rooftops to capture the beautiful skyline that makes Chicago so famous. While exploring the city with friend and photographer Sean I wore perhaps one of the most comfortable pants I own, these denim joggers by Gap. The elastic waist and loose fit makes them perfect for a casual day look. I packed my camera in by navy Everlane backpack (perfect for traveling) and  kept warm with this comfy quilted jacket.  As I described my day to my younger brother he asked me,  “how did you meet Sean” and my response…”Instagram.” While endlessly scrolling down on Instagram I came across some beautiful pictures of Chicago, clicked on Sean’s profile, sent him an email, a few weeks later next thing you know we are taking these awesome pictures. Have you guys ever befriended someone over Instagram? Have any of you visited Chicago before?  Can’t wait to read your comments!

Les cuento que use este look super comodo y casual mientras me montaba en el techo de un famosos hotel en Chicago. Claro, tenia que estar cómoda para poder subir las escaleras…haha. Mientras exploraba la ciudad de Chicago con mi amigo y fotógrafo Sean use estos pantalones super sueltos de Gap, que son perfectos para estar haciendo diligencias. Guarde mi cámara en mi bulto de la marca Everlane y use esta chaqueta super suave y cómoda. Mientras le contaba a mi hermano menor sobre mi día me pregunto que donde había conocido a Sean, y le conte que lo conocí por Instagram. Mientras chequeando mi Instagram vi una fotos de Chicago que me llamaron la atención, le di click al perfil de Sean, le mande un email y después de algunas semanas tomamos estas fotos. Que les parece estas fotos? Les gusta mi chaqueta?

Happy Monday Amigos! Where has time gone? Can you believe it’s almost May! It was a crazy 110 degrees this weekend and oh boy it is getting hot in Abu Dhabi. It’s a type of weather I have not yet experienced ( even while growing up in Venezuela), it’s a combination of dry heat and humidity. I keep struggling with dressing “conservatively” but also not passing out from a heat stroke…haha so it’s a bit of a challenge. I wore this long sleeve floral chiffon dress while out to brunch last weekend, I thought the long sleeves protected my arms from the sun. I love the cheerful floral pattern; this dress could also be worn as a beach coverup. I’m heading to Chicago later today ( late flight from Dubai) before flying off to Jamaica on Friday! You can follow more of my travels here. Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to reading your comments about this casual cheerful dress.

Hola a todos! Pueden creer que ya casi estamos mediados del ano? El tiempo se ha pasado volando. El fin de semana pasado hubo un calor matador, entre la humedad y el calor la verdad es que me iba a dar algo…haha. Use este vestido de mangas largas que pensé que me protegía los brazos del sol y también se puede usar como un pareo para la playa. La verdad es que estoy tratando de vestirme de una manera “conservativa” y a la misma vez no morirme del calor…asi que vamos a ver! Les cuento que hoy en la noche voy saliendo para Chicago por unos días antes de ir a Jamaica este Viernes. Puedes ver mas de mis viajes aquí. Muchas gracias por leer y espero ver sus comentarios sobre este vestido.
