WIWW: Pink Gingham

Hi, there!

So what do you wear when you visit old castles on a very hot day like  30ºC+ hot? I opt for a pair of shorts and a really flowy cotton top for comfort while walking non-stop and climbing steep stairs.

2016-08-05 11.54.01-1

A good walking shoes helps too and as for the top, I don´t go for sleeveless not only because I have flabby arms( hehe!) but I don´t want to get sunburned. So I always go for tops with sleeves.

Lately, I´m favoring gingham tops. It´s  a plus that it´s in a shade of light pink and pleated at the back. I love tops with quirky details be it a pocket, buttons or pleats. This sort of fits the bill.

While a lot of women like wearing dresses during summer, I always go for shorts. I don´t have a thigh gap so you can´t imagine how icky it feels when your sweaty inner thighs rub each other as you walk (TMI sorry) and with shorts/jeans that solves the problem. :)

gingham top, slip ons, sunglasses- Massimo Dutti, shorts(old)- Bershka,

So what´s your go to summer wear?

Monday Remix: An Eyelet and a Midi

Hi, there!!!!

So I´ve been gone again but this time with a good reason, my travel partner and I took our first summer vacay on the southeastern part of Spain. Will tell you about it once I get the pics up.

Anyway, are midis still in? I´ve been wearing this non-stop.While everybody´s in mini and shortie shorts, I´m getting a lot of wear with this midi denim skirt. It´s just so comfy and breezy and most importantly, I don´t have to be conscious of my knickers butt showing when I stoop down to get something on the floor. Ge my drift?

2016-07-16 20.35.38

As for this neverending summer heat, I pair the skirt with an eyelet top. We need lots of ventilation, darlings to survive the sizzling temperature nowadays!

2016-07-16 20.35.31-12016-07-16 20.35.49

So there goes my look, clean and no fuss just how I like it to be.

2016-07-16 20.35.26
top and denim skirt- Zara, shoes and bag- Massimo Dutti

I first wore the eyelet top as part of an all-white ensemble. It loos so fresh, isn´t it? ;)

Have  a lovely week!

WIWW: Summer Basics

Good morning, luvlies!

2016-07-09 17.11.40

If there´s one clothing that I´d like to wear all summer long, it´s a white top/dress. It looks fresh and clean all the time although I can never guarantee the clean part because I tend to stain anything white the minute I put it on, hahaha!

2016-07-09 17.11.32
2016-07-09 17.11.15
skirt- Zara, V-neck shirt- Levis, bag- Bimba & Lola, sandals- local store

Anyway, my summer basics are: a white top, a skirt/ shorts, a pair of sandals, a nude colored bag, sunglasses and a nice tan which doesn´t show in the pics but which I´m having right now. Hmmm, so are you with me or not? ;)

2016-07-09 17.11.25

Happy Wednesday!

Monday Remix: Summer Colors

Holaaa!

Here´s another jean and top combo which I´m sharing with you today. Although my go-to colors for summer are usually white and  anything light, once in a while I reach out for something bold and vivid in my closet like this two-year old Sandro top that I´m wearing. I collect Sandro pieces especially their tops because they´re one of a kind.

2016-07-17 14.01.55

This blue clutch was an old sale find from Mango ago few years ago. I stopped buying clutches when I went back to school two years ago which is okay beacsue I´ve amassed quite  a number already and besides I got hooked on crossbody bags which are much more in synch with my lifestyle. Although I love clutches and still use them, I prefer crossbody bags because of their hands-free ¨feature¨ when you need to grab something with your hands. Get my drift? ;)

2016-07-17 14.01.35
2016-07-17 14.01.33
top- Sandro, jeans and flats- Zara, clutch- Mango
I first wore this top on a trip to the Palace of Aranjuez in Madrid. You can´t find the palace in the city of  Madrid, you need to take the train to go to Aranjuez. You can read about my trip here.

The temperature continues to rise here in Spain. Keep hydrated especially if you´re traveling to the south!

Besos,

Che

WIWW: The Black Shirt Dress

Good morning, my luvs!

2016-07-03 14.09.43
shirt dress- Stradivarius, clutch(old)- Zara, shoes(old)- Bimba& Lola

If you´re wondering why it took me a long time to update this little corner of the blogging world, it´s because my outfits have been blah lately aka jeans and tops everyday and so afer a gazillion years, here I am finally wearing dress. A shirt dress counts, no? ;)

2016-07-03 14.03.22

As a loyal follower of the minimalist dressing philosophy, I find that deciding on what to wear while staring at your closet is much easier and faster because you only see mostly solid colored tones to mix and match and it actually clicks with my no-fuss lifestyle! For an added quirkiness to the mix, I just accesorize with a nice pair of colored/printed shoes or clutch:

2016-07-03 14.09.33
2016-07-03 14.03.17

or a chunky but not over the top jewelry for some oomph to the whole look. Not quite minimalist but not too over the top either.

2016-07-03 14.04.39-1
necklace- Sfera

And hey, what am I really doing on this wall? No idea. It´s one of those dozens of blooper shots where my phootgrapher aka le hubz asks me to stand on a place awkwardly while he starts clicking non-stop. Oh the things you do for blogging´s sake and I´m kinda missing this. ;)

2016-07-03 14.10.35-1


Summer´s in full swing in my place, I hope in yours too. What are your plans?

Hugs,

Flyday Fridays: Back Pleats, please!

Hi, all!

I´m still on the jeans mode here coz it´s still chilly to go barelegged in my town. Anyway, my friend and I went window shopping at the mall the other day and well, we decided to take a few photos of my ootd just for fun. ;)

A sucker for buttondowns, it´s my fave go-to top to pair with my jeans and slipons for that casual comfy look all day.

2016-05-27 21.05.26
jeans and buttondown- Zara, bag- BimbayLola, slipons- Massimo Dutti

And loving more the back pleats detail:

I found this cute mustard top while browsing through some of the tops at Sfera, a Spanish brand.

Happy weekend, all! :)

Summer Stripes

Hellooo, hellooooo!

Stopping by to say howdy to all of you, I´ve one more week to go with internship and then I´m free. :) I really missed this space which I´ve  been neglecting for the past two years. I hope to be blogging regularly soon.

In the meantime, here´s a casual look which I wore today. Summer arrived early last week although it rained today and probably tomorrow too and the temperature dropped by half, no worries coz it looks like summer´s here to stay.

2016-05-21 16.28.36

By the way, how´s your spring-summer shopping? I find the clothes they´re selling n the stores this season´s not really worth taking home stylewise and quality- wise and so I´m sticking to my good old closet for my casual outfits. I´m into stripes lately and choco brown too:

2016-05-21 16.28.27

Boring color combination I know but I  love flowy tops and this fits the bill, hehe. 


2016-05-21 16.27.08
top- Stradivarius, bag- Bimba & Lola, jeans and flats- Zara

So how´s life  lately on your side?

Besos!
