WIWW: Cobalt, Black and a Dose of Color

I love mixing rich colors and textures such as this combination:

2014-04-10 13.08.17

So today on WIWW, I´m `showcasing´ this satin skirt for the last time before it hibernates back into my closet until autumn. During the spring and the summer months, I usually gravitate towards light colors because of the heat but come night time, it´s always elegant to wear something dark. And hey, blue and black really look good together, no? ;) The necklace which you´ve already seen a number of times here in the blog completes my look for today.

This ensemble could also be worn with flats for that casual look or open toed heels but I opted for pointed toed pumps because my feet gets cold easily and when my feet starts to get cold, I get cold all over, hahaha!

So would you wear this combination? ;)

Monday Remix: Pastel Pink

Happy Monday, all!

2014-04-19 12.30.02 - copia

Today´s Monday Remix is about this dark skinny jeans which you´ve seen a million times in the blog, a blush pink pair of ballet flats that I bought four years ago and an old plaid scarf (another old stuff, hahaha!). This time I wore a pastel pink top( from the recent winter sales) and a colored crossbody bag to create another casual look for you today.

I won´t be posting old outfit combinations of the black skinnies and ballet flats because I know that you´ve seen them a lot of times already.

How did your Easter Sunday go? I spent mine in Aveiros, Portugal and it was so fun, will tell you about it soon! :)

Black Friday

I´m stepping out from the blog today to commemorate the Lenten season. In the meantime, I ask you to offer prayers for those who are suffering, in one form or another and as cliché as it might sound, let´s hope for world peace (especially in the war ravaged countries of Africa and Europe and the political unrest in other parts of the world).


Let there be peace amongst us!

Love,

Che

WIWW: Sweatshirt and Light Washed Jeans

We had  an impromptu trip to Biarritz, France over the weekend and I wanted to wear something casual and comfy. So I wore this:

2014-04-05 18.06.08

A silver-gray sweatshirt, pale blue jeans and a purple tote bag for storing everything including my hat. ;)

2014-04-05 18.06.00
2014-04-05 18.06.17-2

Don´t you just love my sweatshirt? It´s says Front Row S/S 14 but I´ve never been to any fashion show nor have sat near any fashion runway, hahaha! Well, I´ve been to a lot of beauty pageants, does that count as a fashion show? ;) It´s a bit chilly and rainy when I left our place but I was quite surprised when the weather actually turned sunny and nice in Biarritz. Although the weather channel was wrong this time, I´m glad it turned out for the best than what I anticipated.

sweater and jeans- Zara, purple tote- Purificación García, shoes- Fluchos
Spring´s arrive, so what are you wearing these days?

I´d love to see your outfits too!

Monday Remix: Jazzing Up a Graphic Shirt

Good morning, dears! :)

2014-04-10 12.53.09

So how do you jazz up an embellished graphic shirt? Easy peasy.

2014-04-10 12.56.02

Just wear a cute skirt instead of the usual pants--> half tuck the shirt in, use a metallic clutch and finish with a pair of heels. Et, voila! :)

And don´t forget to smile though I felt silly smiling by myself just before the camera timer went off. I bought the top when Custo Barcelona opened it´s pop-up store in 2011 in Passeig de Gracia en Barcelona and the skirt is another old find from Mango.

I first wore the top and skirt in 2012 and forgot about them last year, a hoarder problem, I know, hihi!

So how do you dress up your shirts?

Flyday Fridays: Scarf Kind of Day

Hello, hello!

2014-04-09 19.03.00

 Dahlings, the light scarf season officially begins for me today. It´s that time of the year where it´s sunny,windy(just look at my hair!) and chilly at the same time aka spring. ;) So it´s time to bring out those light as a feather scarves for extra warmth on the neckline and they can also serve as fabulous accessories too! Oh and it´s best to wear them with monochromatic colors to bring out the fun prints and colors for more oomph on your outfit. ;)

I bought this leopard printed scarf while visiting Toledo(Spain) last year then totally forgot about it (as usual, lol) until I saw it stuck between the other scarves while doing my spring cleaning. I´m debuting it with a black monochrome look to bring out the emerald green color of the print.

top and pants- Zara, bag- Bimba & Lola, shoes- local store, scarf- local store(in Toledo, Spain)


























Have you started wearing light scarves? Have a fun weekend ahead!

WIWW: Radiant Orchid

Happy Wednesday, everyone! :)

2014-04-06 12.44.02

Finally, an outfit to celebrate Pantone´s color of the year, Radiant Orchid. If you´ve been a follower of this blog (since I started it), you´d know by now that purple is my favorite color. It´s lighter shade called mauve is even part of my wedding motif! So I´m glad that Pantone chose a shade close to purple for this year´s color. As for combining it with different colors, I tried mixing it with olive green pants for a different springy look.

cashmere top and clutch- local store, pants- Zara, shoes(old)- Blanco
I set my camera to warm colors on the first four photos but the top´s actual color is lilac which you can see on the photo below. I just had to include this picture because of  the ¨grumpy face¨ formed by the top´s creases on my tummy. Can you see it? And no, my tummy doesn´t feel grumpy at all and nor do I, lol! :)

2014-04-06 12.45.34

More purplish colors coming soon. I laid low with purple these past years because I didn´t want to saturate my blog with my fave color but hey, since it´s the base of this year´s color, then I´m letting it all go!

So what´s your take on Radiant Orchid? Have you worn it yet? ;)

I hope your midweek´s great!

Hugs,

Che
