Monday Remix: Faux Leather Jacket

Good morning, my luvlies!

2016-10-23 14.27.23

Eveybody should have a leather jacket. Real or faux, light or thick, brown, black or in any other color it doesn´t matter as long as you have one in your closet. It´s the best option that you could have when you don´t want to wear a bulky coat or puffer jacket and look like the ¨Michelin Man¨ when the temperature drops. Moreover, it drapes nicely on your chair when you sit down for coffee  than say your coat, no? 😏

Coincidentally, I tend to pair my black jacket with red. Black and red looks good together, so it´s either with a red shoes:

2016-10-23 14.12.282016-10-23 14.13.41

With a red bag or a red plaid shirt dress:

And even with a red skirt which I wore during winter last year!

Eveybody should have a leather jacket. There.. I said it the second time!😁

WIWW: Metallic Stripes

Good morning, girls!

Just a short OOTD post to liven up the day. Aside from leopard, metallics are also IN this season. I opt for a metallic knit top in all fall colors. I wore this on a winter trip last December to the south of Spain, hence, the hotel room selfie (hahaha!).They do add some pizazz to an otherwise boring black outfit. ;)

Monday Remix: Gray on Gray

Hi, all!

There´s nothing more minimalist than the color gray and a simple shirt, right? I´ve had this Sandro shirt since last year and I can´t believe that I´ve worn it only once. It´s one of those thick shirts which are best worn in-between seasons which could be the reason why I hardly reach for it during summer.

2016-10-31 12.50.33

What I like about this top is are the color accents which I can go matchy-matchy with either bags or shoes. Lookie, lookie, it even complimented well with the background, hahaha! Okay so I´m babbling nonsense here. Anyway, the gist of this post is that gray is a classic  and basic color which every girl should have in her closet and hey, if you don´t like wearing black, this is the next best alternative. ;)

WIWW: Geometric and Black

Hello, luvlies!

It´s definitely tights season in here. I´ve had these photos in my draft folder since early spring when we visited the south of Spain but wasn´t able to publish them until now.

2016-03-25 16.35.50

Pattern trends come and go while some stay like gingham, plaids, florals, stripes or animals througout the year and almost always, we already have these stored in our closets  waiting for their time to shine depending on the season and what´s in. So once in a while I opt for fun prints like these geomietrc ones to spice up my wardrobe a bit no matter what season we are in.

2016-03-25 16.36.06

I wore this while visiting the National Museum of Romanesque Art, part of the building complex declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Mérida, Spain. A fitting skirt to wear actually because inside I saw ancient mosaic tiles which blended with my skirt pattern hahaha!

Do you care for fun prints?

Monday Remix: How To Incorporate Leopard Into Your Wardrobe

Hello, my darlings and Happy Halloween!

2014-04-20 17.44.08

Today, I´ll be talking about my leopard craze. Now I started late, in fact, I bought my first leopard skirt when I started blogging and that was in my 30s! For the neophyte leopard print wearers out there, here are some tips on how to incorporate this ubiquitous and gorgeous print into your wardrobe:

1. On your top with blue denim or with any solid colored pants. They´re a perfect match!

2015-09-01 21.09.21

2. Skirts are a great option too. There are a lot of patterns and colors for this print, you can opt for the classic print and color such as this:

2016-10-02 13.20.27

or the snow leopard print like this one:

I´ve had this skirt since 2013 and though I only use this skirt during the cold season (it´s quite thick for summer wearing) I can´t seem to part with it because of it´s neutral print and color.

 3. Start small with accessories. You can with:

a scarf in a neutral color

or in a brighter color. The choices are endless!

a clutch is a great alternative

or a crossbody bag if you´re feeling it and would definitely like to keep it for good.

4. For shoe lovers out there, this is a good time to invest in leopard shoes. You can choose between a good pair of heels, boots, sneakers or like me with flats.

You see, there are lots of ways of incorporating leopard into your wardrobe. It´s just a matter of choice on how you want to wear it. Don´t be afraid and take the plunge! ;)

Happy rawr-ing!

Che

Flyday Fridays: Scarf Season

Helooo, hellooo!

So yeah, it´s scarf season again, my dears!

2016-07-23 15.42.57

Although I collect scarves, I hardly ever wear one except when I´m on the train and trying to get some sleep( scarf as a mini pillow=cool, hahaha!). But scarves are really outfit game changers because they can make or break an outfit just like your bag and shoes.

2016-07-23 15.43.16

I snatched this colorful number from the Zara sales last summer thinking about wearing it this season although I´ve already debuted this a few months ago when the weather went chilly on us. Today, I saw this again and promisde to wear it more often because what´s the use of collecting something when you don´t wear it, right? Right!

2016-07-23 15.43.37
top- Mango, scarf, jeans(very old)- Zara, tote bag- Purificación García, flats- Aldo

Have a lovely weekend ahead and oh, are your pumpkins ready? We don´t have that tradition here in Spain although everybody´s out on a mini-vacay( us included) because it´s gonna be a long weekened ahead.

Hugs!

Monday Remix: Fall Colors and this Jacket

Good morning, my dears!

While black, white and blue( denim) are my go-to colors all year round, with fall, I always go for rich hued colors such as maroon/burgundy/marsala, forest green teal  blue and mustard. These are my favorite color tones which I think combines well with my dark hair and skin color than say the light colors of spring. I´ve been incorporating fall colors little by little into my outfits since September just like this olive green top to upgrade my fall look:

IMG_0422

I have this jacket/blazer for more than a year now. It´s one of those all terrain jackets that you just grab from your closet when you have nothing to cover yourself with when the temperature drops outside.

As for the accessories, I dug out this chunky multi-colored necklace from the dungeon that is my jewelry drawer. The trend for necklaces these days are delicate chokers but hey, we can wear anything that we like don´t we? ;)

So how´s your weekeend? I spent mine glued on my couch, surfing the net and watching tv non-stop while bingeing on cashew nuts and Doritos( Don´t follow me, I´m PMSing). A very boring activity to you active people but spending two whole days doing nothing after a very hectic week is an ideal weekend for me, ha!

Hugs!
