How unique and amazing are these colorful paint splattered skinny jeans? I first spotted these jeans on Shopbop and even though I am always hesitant to buying jeans online I had to give them a try. These skinny jeans run true to size and can be worn as seen above with sandals and a simple white tee for a casual look. You can also wear these jeans with black or nude heels and a simple white button down shirt. Would any of you wear jeans like these? I would love to hear your feedback in the comment section below!

Dress/Vestido: Ann Taylor (also love this one), Shoes/Zapatos: Dolce Vitta (very similar),  Sunglasses/Lentes: Dior

How was everyone’s weekend? I was in Washington D.C. for a quick 48 hour trip and now I’m back in Chicago before flying out to Abu Dhabi on Friday afternoon. While planning what to wear this 4th of July I came across this Ann Taylor eyelet shirtdress. The bright red (even though the website describes it as orange) is the perfect red dress for an elegant and classic 4th of July outfit. This shirtdress is extremely comfortable and the side pockets are a fun addition. This eyelet shirtdress can be styled with flats for a casual look, with nude or black heels for work, with wedges for the summer or with nude sandals as seen above for a trendy summer look. For a limited time you can now find this dress 50% off (amazing!!!) which also comes in navy. I hope everyone has a great week and thank you for taking the time to read the blog! I look forward to hearing your feedback on this dress!

Como pasaron el fin de semana? Les cuento que pase por Washington D.C. y ahora estoy de regreso en Chicago antes de irme de regreso a Abu Dhabi el viernes en la tarde. Mientras planeaba que poner para el 4 de Julio vi este vestido de la marca Ann Taylor. Me encanta el encaje y los bolillos. Este tipo de vestido es un poco mas elegante para el fin de semana, pero tambien se puede vestir con flats para un look mas casual, tacones negros o huesos para el trabajo o plataformas para el verano. Pueden conseguir este vestido (que tambien viene en azul) a 50% de descuento aca. Espero que todos pasen una buena semana y gracias por pasar por el blog.

Happy Friday Amigos! It has been a busy week for me, started in Chicago, spent 48 hours in NYC and now I’m currently in Washington D.C. for a few days. When I first spotted this Banana Republic pleated-ombre dress online I knew this dress would be a best seller! I was so excited to try it on! The dramatic pleats offer an amazing movement and the unique ombre is perfect for the summer. Personally, I felt this dress is not flattering for women with a fuller chest area. Even though I loved wearing this dress over the weekend and felt feminine while wearing I felt the extra fabric made me look “bigger.” I pride myself on being honest with all of you and I hope when you read my blog you get something out of it; inspiration, fitting tips or just my honest opinion about whatever I’m wearing. I still encourage all of you to try this dress, this pleated-ombre dress is comfortable and can easily be styled for a cocktail attire, date night or a wedding. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I look forward to hearing your feedback on this Banana Republic dress.

In the spirit of 4th of July I wanted to share a festive patriotic and classic outfit, emphasis on the word classic. The blue and red combination is the perfect summer look  and can be styled in 100 different a ways without going overboard, right? This Madewell tee is the perfect 4th of July staple, I’m wearing a size small and will say the armholes are extremely big and my bra was showing. I would recommend wearing a fun bralette like this one. I added this cute Banana Republic sailor shorts and fun boater hat for an overall festive summer outfit. The key to pulling a perfect 4th of July outfit is choosing a hero piece, in this case the striped red white and blue tee and building the outfit around that. Below I’m sharing a few of my favorite tops, dresses and accessories for a fun and classic 4th of July outfit. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing your feedback on this outfit!

the perfect shirtdress for summer

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend the weekend in Chicago and I have to say it was perhaps one of the best weekends so far! The weather was absolutely amazing, we saw some of our closest friends and really felt like we were “home.” One summer staple regardless the trend is a white shirtdress. It’s funny because I tend to receive tons of compliments on the most basic and classic items such as this white shirtdress. Even though a white shirtdress is one of those items every woman should have in their closet, sometimes the most basic things are the hardest to find. But not to worry, I’m here to help. This white Eliza J shirtdress is the perfect dress for summer! This dress is even more beautiful in person! The delicate pleats and eyelet cutouts add a feminine touch and beautiful movement while walking. This shirtdress can be styled with flats, white sneakers for a causal day, nude heels for a more business casual look, wedges for a summer stroll or nude sandals as seen below for a summer lunch attire. I added my go-to accessory, this classic fedora and a pop of color with this Tory Burch purse. I’m flying to NYC later tonight so make sure to follow on Snapchat and Instagram for more travels. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing your comments on this classic look.

Les cuento que mi esposo y yo pasamos el fin de semana en Chicago con nuestros amigos y disfrutando del verano. Una pieza clave para el verano es un vestido tipo “shirtdress” como este. Este es un vestido que todas las mujeres deberiamos tener en nuestro closet, pero a veces las piezas claves y sencillas son las mas difíciles de conseguir. Este vestido de la marca Eliza J es perfecto para el verano y aun mas bonito en persona. Los pliegos y los detalles en la falda le da un movimiento coqueto. Este vestido se puede usar con flats, gomas para un look casual, tacones color hueso para un look profesional, con plataformas para el verano y con sandalias como las mias para un look perfecto para almorzar. Le di un poco de color al look con esta cartera de Tory Burch y este sombrero Panameño. Hoy salgo para NYC así que no se les olviden seguirme por Instagram y Snapchat (chicflavours).

Good Morning from Washington D.C.! I took a 13 hour flight from Abu Dhabi to D.C. and even though I was supposed to fly to Chicago my flight was cancelled and now I’m on my way back to the airport to hopefully make it to Chicago. My husband and I are spending the weekend in the Winy City and flying to NYC and back to D.C. during the week. Besides the palm beach print another big trend this summer is the modern bohemian trend. Embroidery, pom poms, tassels has been all the rage this season which I hope stays through the years. This beautiful Tory Burch Madison embroidered tunic is the perfect example of the modern boho trend. The orange tassels are the perfect pop of color and the beautiful embroidery is the bohemian perfection. This top can easily be styled with shorts as I did, with white or blue jeans or even with this matching skirt. Below I’m sharing a few other of my favorite embroidered tops. Which one is your favorite? Thank you for reading and I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Buenos días desde Washington D.C.  Les cuento que vole 13 horas directo desde Abu Dhabi a Washington D.C. y despues de aterrizar me cancelaron mi vuelo a Chicago, pero bueno voy saliendo de regreso al aeropuerto. Mi esposo y yo nos vamos a pasar el fin de semana en Chicago y despues vamos  para NYC y Washington D.C. Aparte del estampado de “palm” otra tendencia para el verano es el look bohemio. Con pom pomnes y encaje ha sido la tendencia todo la primavera y verano. Este top de la marca Tory Burch se puede combinar con shorts como en las fotos, con jeans blancos o azul o hasta con esta falda del mismo estampado. Abajo comparto con ustedes mis camisas preferidas tipo bohemio. Gracias por leer y espero que tengan un buen fin de semana.

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Tory Burch (as you can see herehere and here) and her new summer collection is no exception! I love all the bright colors and elegant and sophisticated silhouette. I visited the Tory Burch store at the Galleria Mall in Abu Dhabi a few days ago and spotted this Tory Burch Marissa Dress. The Marissa Dress is a modern twist from the classic tunics that Tory Burch is known for. The bright orange crochet details add the perfect touch of summer. This dress is comfortable and easy to wear during the day with flats or dress up with heels as I did. I will recommend sizing down on the dress; the straight fit makes this dress a little loose. This time around I added a combination of colors between the dress and this bold yellow purse. I can totally see myself wearing this dress during the day for lunch or at the pool with by husband next month when we go to Greece! I would love to hear you thoughts on this colorful Tory Burch dress and thank you for reading!

____________________________________________________________________________

Como ya deben de saber me encanta la marca Tory Burch y la nueva colección de verano no es la excepción. Este verano la marca ofrece colores vivos y una elegancia y sencillez. Visite la tienda de Tory Burch en el Galleria Mall en Abu Dhabi hace algunos días donde vi este vestido. Este vestido es un look moderno de las típicas camisas y vestidos “tunics” que son sumamente populares para la marca Tory Burch. Este vestido es comodo y fácil de usar durante el día con flats o con tacones para la noche. Les recomiendo pedir una talla mas pequeña de lo normal ya que por el estilo del vestido queda un poco ancho. Les cuento que el Jueves en la mañana voy saliendo para Chicago…que emocion! Mucha gracias por leer y espero ver sus comentarios sobre este look.

Happy Monday Everyone! Thank you all for the nice comments left on Instagram and Snapchat about my pictures from Thailand! My husband and I had the best time exploring Bangkok, Yao Noi and Phuket; a full post and recap coming soon. This week is going to be crazy one, I’m flying back to Chicago (YAY) on Thursday and have tons to do before yet another long flight. One of my favorite trends this summer is the colorful and bright palm print. It screams summer and brands from Dolce and Gabanna, BCBG and Elisa J are jumping on the trend. I spotted this Eliza J palm print shift dress on Nordstrom and loved the fun print and easy silhouette.  You are probably asking yourself, how do I style this busy print? A few tips on how to style palm print items is to remember its meant to be fun and summery. Add a pair of brown leather or nude wedges or create a fun contrast like I did with these summer classic white and navy striped sandals. I hope everyone has a great week and I look forward to reading your comments on this dress.

Feliz Lunes a todos! Muchas gracias por los buenos comentarios en mi Instagram y Snapchat de mis fotos de Tailandia. Mi esposo y yo la pasamos buenisimo conociendo Bangkok, Yao Noi y Phuket; pronto compartire un post sobre mi experiencia y mas fotos. Les cuento que una de mis tendencias preferidas para el verano es el estampado de “palma.”  Es un estampado colorido y perfecto para el verano. Cuando vi este vestido de la marca Elisa J en Nordstrom me encanto la sencilles del vestido pero aun así ideal para el verano. Seguro se están preguntando cual es la mejor manera de combinar este estampado y les recomiendo mantener los accessories mínimo así que unos zapatos color hueso o de cuero. Yo cree un contraste con estos zapatos de rayas de Soludos. Les cuento que el Jueves voy saliendo para Chicago! Así que no se olviden de seguirme por Instagram o Snapchat (chicflavours) para ver mas de mis viajes. Saludos!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! If you follow me on Snapchat (chicflavours) or Instagram then you know Tom and I have been in Thailand for the last few days. Excited to share more pictures in the next few weeks! Before flying to Thailand I wore this exact same outfit out for lunch with my girlfriends and received tons of compliments regarding the color combination. White jeans are one of those timeless spring and summer items that can be worn in many different ways. This time around I wore this navy playful feathered fringe top an added a fun contrast with these leopard heels (currently on a major sale) and neon orange clutch, what do you think of the purse? A few of my all time favorite white jeans combinations are: white on white, white on blue denim, white on black and white and navy stripes. Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to hearing your comments on this outfit and greeting from the island of Yao Noi!

Si me siguen por Snapchat (chicflavours) o Instagram entonces saben que Tom y yo llevamos varios días en Tailandia. Pronto estaré compartiendo muchas mas fotos con ustedes. Antes de volar a Tailandia use este mismo look para almorzar con mis amigas y todas comentaron sobre el contraste de colores. Los jeans blancos son una pieza que se pueden usar durante todo la primavera y verano y de muchas maneras. Esta vez use estos jeans con una camisa azul oscura y hice un contraste de colores con estos tacones de leopardo y esta cartera color naranja, que les parece? Alguna de mis combinaciones preferidas con jeans blancos es, blanco con blanco, blanco y negro y blanco y rayas azules. Espero que les guste este look y saludos desde la isla de Yao Noi.

If you’ve been following Chic Flavours for sometime now then you are familiar with my love and hate relationship with jeans. I love wearing dresses and skirts, but every now and then, I find the perfect pair of jeans that help me break my dress and skirt cycle. While I was in Chicago a few weeks back, I visited the Old Navy Store on State Street where I spotted the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans. I tried over 10 different pairs of jeans before finding the  these! These boyfriend jeans are loose and relaxed but still highlight my curves. I love how comfortable, soft and flattering these jeans are! The light wash is perfect for the summer. I went ahead and rolled them for a fun and casual day at the beach! Old Navy offers a large variety of jeans for every body type, all at an affordable price tag. You can shop a few of my favorite styles below. Which jeans do you like most, skinny, flare or boyfriend jeans? I hope everyone has a great week ahead and I look forward to reading your comments on these casual beach pictures. Greetings from Thailand!

Si llevan tiempo siguiendo Chic Flavours entonces saben que me encatan usar vestidos y faldas pero de vez en cuando consigo los jeans perfectos. Cuando estaba en Chicago pase por la tienda de Old Navy en State Street donde consegui estos jeans tipo “boyfriend.” Si les soy sincera me prove por lo menos como 10 diferentes jeans hasta conseguir el ideal. Estos jeans son cómodos y suaves. Son tipo “relajados” pero a la misma vez muestra la figura del cuerpo. Me doble los jeans para un look casual en la playa aunque tambien me gusta doblarme los jeans con tacones simplemente para darle un toque diferentes a los jeans. Abajo comparto con ustedes mis jeans preferidos de Old Navy. Ustedes que tipo de jeans les gusta mas? Skinny, acampanados o tipo boyfriend? Gracias por leer y saludos desde Tailandia!
