WIWW: Blue, Black and Some Leopard

Happy New Year, my darlings! :)

IMG_0965

The hubz and I decided to escape to sunny Seville, Spain to welcome the year for a change. It was heaven to be able to wear just a light jacket or even a faux fur-lined cardigan (just like what I´m wearing) instead of a thick puffer jacket + huge scarf combo for a few days. To complement the blue and black color scheme, I used a leopard printed saddle bag which I´ve had since more than a year ago.

I´ve gained a few pounds from the pre and post holiday parties which I attended here and there and so dark blue and black were my favorite colors to wear nowadays, hahaha!

Dressing Up For Me In Review 2016

Hello, helloooo! :)

So yeah, in two days, the year 2016 will be now called as ¨last year¨. Strange but true, hahaha! So how´s your 2016 so far? Mine´s been a very busy one, hence, I only had 31 posts ( about 25% of what I usually have excluding the year 2015). Maybe because real life ate a lot of my blogging time, I spent half of this year finishing my course ( I passed with a more than average grade, yey!) but I´m satisfied beacuse I got to travel more although the pics didn´t end up in the blog, lol!

As for what I wore, I lived in jeans and tops. Nothing new although I did try and fell in love with some new trends this year. So here are my top twelve favorite looks of the year:

1. Denim

You know me, I´m a denim lover through and through. I may not be a dress type of gal but if it´s in chambray/ denim, I´m all in! I tried the midi denim skirt too which wasn´t bad either. It´s just a question of proportion and what accesories to wear to be able  carry it with my very petite frame.

2. Prints

I´ll say it again and again, prints are a classic. So go ahead  and have a few in your wardrobe. Even if I´m a staunch supporter of the minimalist dressing philosopy aka plain black, white, gray and blue all the way, I still go back to my prints once in a  while. This year I tried on dark florals for fall, remixed a few of my animal skirts and tops, wore gingham and some stripes too.

3. Wide leg trousers/pants

Name it gaucho(for jeans) and cullotes for mid length or palazzo for whole length trousers, this trend got me hooked line and sinker and I´m in love with it. Come to think of it, this style isn´t actually new because I remember my late grandmother used to wear palazzo pants when she was younger and that was like a million of years ago.😁 I preferred mine in denim, plain, chevron or stripes. What´s yours?

Sooo.. what about you? Any favorite looks that you could share before the year ends? ;)

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE AND I WISH YOU THE BEST FOR 2017!!!

Hugs,

Che

WIWW: A Denim Shirt Dress For Fall

Hola, holaaa!

In nine days it´s gonna be winter and so even if  today´s temperature dropped to less than 5 ºC, technically it´s  still fall, right? ;)

2016-11-27 13.23.07

Denim shirt dresses are starting to be closet staples. The stores even have it every season! Since I love denim or chambray shirt dresses, I hoarde them.So how do you prep up your summer denim shirt dress for the cold season?

2016-11-27 13.22.492016-11-27 13.22.25

Easy peasy, just put on tights and a jacket over it and you´re good to go! It´s a no-brainer actually. 😄

2016-11-27 13.23.032016-11-27 13.22.20-1

Since I´m wearing neutral colors, I used a red envelope clutch for a pop of bright red to add some life to the whole look. And oh, a pair of heeled booties for additional inches to this vertically challenged girl too!

WIW: Autumnal Stripes

Happy Wednesday, dears!

IMG_0708

I´m writing this post with the thick fog hovering outside our window and it´s already noon! Anyway, I just want to share this cute pair of palazzo pants that I got from Zara more than a month ago. If you live in a warm weather country right now, this is the best type of pants to celebrate autumn/fall without freezing and be on trend at the same time!

IMG_0705IMG_0707

Although the colors, blend well with the vegetation in here, sadly the cloth is quite thin for the chilly weather and so I had to wear clear tights under it. Oooops, TMI, hehe. Nevertheless, it´s quite an eye catching piece because I stood out in a sea of dark plain color outfits when I wore this, hahaha!😁

Monday Remix: Fave Travel Bag and Jeans

Good evening, my luvlies!

Pardon, I got late in my posting sched for today because real life was busy since early morning today. Anyway, do you have a favorite travel bag and jeans to wear when you travel?

IMG_0489

I do and it´s this red bag which you´ve been seeing in almost all of my travel outfit posts.What can I say, it can fit all of my things and it´s red color complements with almost every look that I wear. As for this pair of slashed jeans, I only stopped wearing this because it got very cold in here and I didn´t want to freeze my knees and joints aka old age, lol! I wore this very casual and minimalist look when we visited Villena, Alicante( Spain) sometime in October and since I´m always late in the posting game, I only get to post it today.

IMG_0486

I love, love this dark blue cardi with a faux fur trimming at the front. It´s quite warm but quite thin for this month´s weather and so it´s now back inside my closet again.

So how´s your Monday so far? The stores are beginning to fill up these days and so it´s better to do your Christmas shopping early. I did a little shopping for our exchange gift activity this weekend.

Enjoy the week ahead!

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. ;)
