WIWW: B/W Shirt Dress and Fuchsia

Hola!

I´m starting my WIWW 2015, albeit late, with stripes.

2014-06-02 18.23.42

These are old photos by the way when the weather was still sunny, mild and I still have long messy hair. Now, it´s foggy at night until mid-morning and even if it´s sunny it´s so soooo cold! Oh and I cut my hair short but it´s gotten messier than ever, hahaha!

2014-06-02 18.24.27

Anyway, it´s been a while since I´ve worn a dress and so here´s a welcome post for all of ya out there. Black and white has always been my go-to combination, it´s a classic and slimming. I just paired it with my all-time fave fuchsia crossbody bag for a touch of color to the look.

The sales season is going on full-swing around here, what´s in your shopping bags? ;) In my case, I just bought a few basics to add to my closet. By the way, part 2 of of my DUFM Year-End Review2014  is coming soon. Watch out for that. ;)

Dressing Up For Me 2014 in Review ( part 1)

Good morning, world and happy new year! :)

I know I´m late in the 2014 outfit review game but it´s better to be late than never. So here´s part 1 of my ootd recap. Aside from my usual jeans/pants and top combos, it was a top and skirt mostly for me. I wasn´t much into leather but I stayed true to my ¨color loving¨ nature.

I ventured on a little bit of florals and animal prints too...

and did some remixing on my skirts which I´m very proud of.

I also wore tulle for the first time but I´ve noticed that I haven´t been really experimental with my look last year.  I hope to make it up this year although with school projects and exams, I really don´t know if I can find the time to dress up more, hahaha!

Anyway, I want to thank all of you who came to visit me on my blog. I know that since school started last September I kind of layed low for a while to focus more on real life but I hope to find the time to blog more often. To those who´ve left comments on my posts, I´ll be visiting you soon. :)

Have a blessed and fruitful 2015 ahead!

Love, love,

Che

WIWW: Gray and and Teal

Oh, hi there(again)!

2014-12-14 13.58.10

I´ve missed all of you, have you missed me too? ;)

2014-12-14 13.57.10

I got a free day off from my hectic ¨school schedule¨ and what way to spend it wisely but snap some photos even on a very wet day. I would´ve love it if it´s snow that´s falling but it´s nothitng but rain, rain, rain.

Anyway, as I´ve been telling you in my last post, I wear nothing but pants and sweater these days and so the other day when I decided to wear a skirt, I just had to take some photos of  the outfit. So here it is, gray on a gray day but at least I get to pair it with teal, one my favorite autumn-winter colors and my jewel necklace for extra color. So how do I look? ;)

Monday Remix: Fall Uniform



Hi, all!

I hope you still remember me. ;) Just checking in to say hello. I can´t stay for long though and maybe will be gone again. Just wanted to know that I´ve missed all of you and your blogs. Anyway, just before winter sets in, here´s my fall unfiorm:

2014-11-21 11.37.27
top(old)- Pimke, sweater and jeans(old)- Zara, booties- local store, clutch- Mr. Joe
A preppy mix of jeans, flat boots, a plaid/ plain button down and a sweater whose thickness depends on the average temperature outside. I live on this outfit the whole season especially now that I´m back at school. It´s comfortable, quite simple and not over the top for school. The perfect uniform for a no-fuss gal like me!

2014-11-21 11.30.28


And here are some of the ways I´ve worn the gray sweater since two years ago:

                 winter 2014                                                                                              fall 2013

Accesories like a bag could change the look of the same outfit right? ;)

Happy Monday, y´all! Enjoy the week ahead. :)

WIWW: Fuchsia and Black

Hello,hello!

2014-11-09 13.49.01

I´m glad that I was able to snag this pair of tall suede boots during the winter sales this year. It´s becoming my favorite pair of shoes to put on every time I step out of the door and it´s so versatile too! I can wear this with tights and a skirt  like what I´m showing you today and skinny jeans which you´ll be seeing anytime soon. ;)

2014-11-09 13.48.52


I´m wearing old things here except for the fuchsia sweater which is a new addition to my fall wardrobe this year. I plan on not addding more because I´ve noticed that I´ve got enough sweaters to last me until winter. Crossing my fingers that I can keep that promise to myself though because I saw a lot of pretty things in the stores last week, lol!

2014-11-09 13.49.01 - copia

And what about you? Have you done some fall/autumn shopping? I can´t wait to see what you´re wearing. :)

Monday Remix: A Very Casual Comeback

Hello, world!

2014-11-08 17.46.30

Yeah right, I´m back and I hope  it would be for long because it´s exams week this week until next. Let´s see what´s going to happen then. So how have you been? It´s been a while I know and as for the weather, we´ve jumped right into winter from a super loooong summer. So the sandals are back inside the closet, the light tops are up, the sweaters are down and the leather jackets are back too!


2014-11-08 17.46.32


As usual I´m on a jeans and sweater mode and ... barefaced, hihihi! More interesting looks to come soon( I hope). ;)

2014-11-08 17.46.46

Have a lovely week, you all! :)

Hugs,

Che

Monday Remix: So Pumpkin

Good morning, dahlings! :)

2014-08-30 14.25.12

I´m wearing orange today just in time for the Halloween season which is just around the corner. Although I won´t be going around town wearing a scary costume this weekend, I think a pumpkin colored top and loafers will do. Right? ;) Anyway, come fall/ autmn I usually take this colored body bag out. It´s teal, mustard, purple colored ikat print that would be perfect for some casual mixing and matching until winter comes. You might have seen this crossbody bag a lot of times here in the blog, it´s a favorite of mine, actually!

2014-04-15 16.25.39

Anyway, I wore this pumpkin and crossbody bag combination while visiting an ancient salt marsh two months ago. Yes, these pics have been ¨curating¨ that long in my draft folder and I owe you BIG TIME( as usual, hahaha!) about that trip because it´s very interesting. It´ll come soon, promise!

2014-08-30 17.53.58

You might have noticed that I´ve stopped posting travel posts on Fridays. So sorry for that, my student life´s so hectic nowadays but one of these days after the exams, I´ll get back to posting on Fridays. Watch out for that!

2014-08-30 17.31.37

In the meantime, here´s another shot for a casual chic Halloween inspiration without scaring the children. Are you ready for trick or treating soon?

Have a fun week ahead! :)
