WIWW: Stripes for Life

Hola, holaaa!

With the ¨trending¨ hot weather nowadays, wearing a super loose bottom to feel comfy can be quite challenging for a petite girl like me. So I incorporate prints into it like stripes.

Aren´t we also glad that pajama dressing is in? Because these pants look like pajama bottoms and I´m loving it. Truth be told, these are one of my go to pants to wear this summer. They´re just so breezy, light and leg lengthening, don´t you think? I even paired it with flat sandals and they still look good!πŸ˜„

WIWW: Little White Dress

Hello, hello!

If there´s one piece of clothing that should be called the ONE in our closets all throughout the summer season, it´s the little white dress. I mean, duh, it´s a no brainer, right?

It doesn´t matter if it´s a mini, midi or maxi, short sleeved or sleeveless. A white dress is a classic, ALWAYS is.😊 Moreover, it goes well with a denim jacket, in classic blue or even colored  when the temperature drops in the early or during late evening. And speaking of temperature drop, our summer weather is quite abnormal. Although thunderstorms normally come after a few days of consistent high temperature ( not reaching more than 30ΒΊC though), they always convert into a huge hailstorms with lots of wind and super heavy downpour. Bad, really bad.

At least we have a lot of cool days too and so I´m not complaining much.  So, do you have a little white dress stashed in your closet somewhere?


Hugs!

Monday Remix: Mixing Prints

Howdy!

Do you still mix prints? I still do!

2018-04-18 18.36.30
top, culottes and shoes- Zara, tote bag- Mango, necklace- Bimba & Lola, sunglasses- Massimo Dutti

Although summer is in full swing right now, there are still days where the temperature drops to  21ΒΊC maximum and so I can get by wearing a light knitted top over anything,; a pair of jeans, skirt or in this case my good ole cullotes from three seasons ago.

2018-04-18 18.39.08

I just make sure that the colors/ color motiff blend with each other, in this case, I mix a black and white striped top with a same colored color combo of chevron prints at the bottom and there you go! I stayed with the two-color theme by wearing black Mary Janes and a black tote bag for a more harmonious ensemble but accented it with a shell necklace from Bimba & Lola which was scored from the sales about three years ago.

2018-04-18 18.36.15

So if like me you also do mix prints, what are the usual color combos you opt for? Have a lovely week ahead, y´all! :)

Monday Remix: Some Gingham and Wide Legs

Good morning, everyone! :)

Let´s bring it out there, I can´t just get over this pair of wide leg jeans/ cullotes. Now, we both know that I´m very petite and cullotes or  extremely flared bottoms are not quite aesthetically pleasing for a vertically charged gal like me but who cares? When you´re a jean wearing fanatic like I am and it´s so hot out there, wouldn´t a flowy pair of denims be the best alternative? ;)

2018-06-20 21.18.28

This pair came out pretty high-rise and so pairing the right top for it is quite tricky. I´m glad that I still have this old gingham top from three years ago et voila, problem solved. I guess it´s time to shop for shorter tops in the sales too. #shopaholicradarison

WIWW: Marigold

Hello, hellooo!!!!

I haven´t given you a proper welcome for summer but hey, we´re still in the middle of it, right? ;) Anyway, with the temperature slowly rising by the day and dropping a little during the night, I tend to favor wearing just a plain tees and softly textured jeans.

2018-06-03 12.52.41

My favorite color nowadays is marigold. Now if that color doesn´t scream summer, I don´t know what does. Well, white of course but you and I know that white is given. ;)

Monday Remix: The Gingham Blazer

If by chance, you´ve been following my sporadic posts for a number of years, you would´ve known by now that my style choices have changed drastically from too colorful to too plain, hahaha! Don´t get me wrong, I still wear color from time to time although a lot of them doesn´t get documented here for some reason aka  no time to edit and post,oops!

2018-05-19 20.16.14

Anyhoo, the weather´s still goes loco on this side of the world and while it may already be full pledge summer in your place, we´re still experiencing the four seasons in ours(in a day).

2018-05-19 20.16.16

So what do I usually bring with me on days like these? A light blazer or to be exact a gingham blazer which I bought from the tail-end of the winter sales late February of this year.

2018-05-19 20.16.032018-05-19 20.16.00

It´s light, in a classic monochrome color, long enough to cover my bum and in a discrete print where it doesn´t clash with what I´m wearing. Just the perfect all-around blazer to lug around during spring and early summer actually.

2018-05-19 20.15.11
blazer- Pull & Bear, knitted top- Zara, jeans- H&M, loafers- Coach, bag- Bimba & Lola


And you? What´s your usual cover-up when the temperature drops these days? ;)


Bisous,

WIWW: The Floral Dress

About two weeks ago, a friend of mine invited the hubz and I to her son´s First Holy Communion. Now if you´re catholic and live here in Spain, this is a big  deal. The people here treat it like a mini-wedding and is strictly a family affair. So we´re more than happy that my friend and her family decided to share this special occasion with us together with a couple of common friends. This was what I wore:

2018-05-20 13.47.44


I´m not a ¨dress-y¨ type of gal, per se. Do shirt/ denim dresses, count? They´re usually what you´ll find inside my wardrobe. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ To be honest, I think I only have  three which I consider real dresses and this one which was a sales find last summer which I didn´t get to wear until now. At first, I considered wearing palazzo pants or my favorite eyelet white dress but I had a problem finding the perfect handbag to go with them. Then I found this gauzy floral number in light colors at the bottom of my closet, they´re perfect for spring actually!

2018-05-20 13.47.05



The weather´s chilly in the morning and so I had to wear clear stockings, By the way, do you know how it´s difficult to find a nude stocking color to match your skin? It´s a hit or miss and as always, mine´s a miss, hahaha! I bought mine at H&M and I hope they bring out samples for skin matching because it´s quite difficult to do a swatch test when all the stockings are already packed and with the yellow lighting and all. To give the look a casual and modern twist, I draped a light denim jacket over the dress et voila, outfit complete!
