WIWW: Zebra and White

Hello, my luvs!

20150627_195317

Summer´s full blown in my place, I can´t hardly even go out because of the heatwave that´s been going on in here since yesterday! Every time I complain about the excessive heat to the hubz he would have that `I don´t believe you´ look on his face and tell me that I should´ve have been accustomed to the heat by now because I came from a tropical country. Little did he know that when the heat is on in my tropical lalaland, we hide until the sun sets or use an umbrella if we need to go out under the midday sun, hahaha! And that´s how you avoid most of the wrinkles, my friends. :)

Anyway, for this look, I opt to put on a flowy white top and a mini skirt in zebra print. Like always, these are part of my old summer basics. The red open toed sandals are to add some color to the whole outfit. I usually take out this crossbody bag for spring and summer because of it´s light color combination. It´s just how I do bags, light for summer and spring, dark for autumn and winter. What about you?

Stay cool and dehydrated always!

Monday Remix: The Plaid Buttondown

Good morning!

I´ll just make this short because I know everybody´s gong to have a hectic week except me ( still on vacation mode).

2015-06-21 11.15.57

This is a tried and tested combo whenever I travel, a button down and dark pants. No fuss, easy breezy and tried and easy old basics which I´ve had for years. The loafers are from the Coach Outlet in La Roca Villlage in Barcelona, one of my best buys this season.

Monday Remix: Denim Cut-offs and Cream

Good morning, blogger friends!

Here´s something very casual and summery getup for today: a pair of  denim cut-offs, cream colored flowy top and open-toed flat sandals to complete the ensemble. Summer´s officialy here, finally! :)

2015-06-04 14.14.31

I love accessories especially jewelry but I don´t know why I always forget to photograph them, must be because I´m getting old, hahaha! For this very casual look, I decided wear this love necklace which I bought for sale at Suite Blanco years ago. This is one of my go-to necklacse when I feel like wearing dainty jewelry. It´s quite light!

Flyday Fridays: Hush Blush

It´s a Friday, my luvs!

I´m sharing some what-I-wore photos from my Holy Week vacation in Catalonia three months ago. I know, old pics, hahaha! Spring has just started during this time and so I was wearing a light colored sweater and my favorite flat boots for walking.

2015-04-02 14.47.02

2015-04-02 14.47.09

We stopped by the historic and beautiful Poblet Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site but didn´t get to see what´s inside the monastery(only the church which is quite simple) because we were pressed for time. If you like old churches/monasteries, I recommend this place. They offer guided tours too.

WIWW: Nude and Mocha

Hellooo!

I thought that the warm weather would go on and on but just a day after taking these pics, the temperature went down 10 degrees and we´re back to having those dreary and cold days again. It´s a good thing that I got to wear this light knitted dress again before the clouds turned into gray again because I only get to wear this every two years, lol!

2015-06-14 13.53.22

I rarely put on this nude number because it´s a bit sheer and I had to wear a slip underneath and I always look so bloated, hahaha! But it´s soft, breezy and comfy and so why complain about it? Just pair it with the right accessories and you´re good to go.

2015-06-14 13.53.16

As for my bag, I broke in the hubby´s birthday gift from three months ago. While other girls can´t wait to wear their gifts/ new purchases, I´m the type who waits for the right time to wear them even if it will take months to do so. So here I am with this mocha colored bag in saffiano leather which is technically a quarter of a year old which is becoming a favoritebag  of mine nowadays.

I´ve always been a tote and crossbody type of gal and although this has a strap, I prefer it as a hand bag because it looks bulky on my right  hip whenever I use it as a shoulder bag. I´m not complaining though because it packs a lot as in A WHOLE LOT( What´s in my bag post, soon)!

Monday Remix: White and Gray

Good morning, all!

I´ve been wearing this white boyfriend jeans non-stop nowadays. Here´s another very casual combination which I wore the other month when we went museum hunting in Barcelona, with a lightweight gray sweater and silver loafers:

2015-04-03 12.53.42

Although white jeans are very easy to pair with anything, it can be a pain to maintain it pristine white the whole day. Case point, after visiting the Joan MirĂ³ Museum, a kid accidentally touched my lower right leg while trying to sit down on the bus seat leaving a very nice curved dirty smiley and  just when I thought that everything´s going to be fine after that, a girl on a bike accidentally bumped me on the back leaving a perfect tire imprint on the back of my right leg while the hubz and I were walking along the  Passeig de Gracia. So the day ended with a smiley on my left leg and a tire print on my right leg, hahaha!

2015-04-03 13.11.37

So what´s the lesson learned? Never wear white especially jeans when traveling in crowded places, hahaha!

Here are some of the ways that I´ve paired my boyfriend whites, although they´re stain prone, they´re quite verstaile!

Do you have the same problem with  your pair of white jeans?

Enjoy the week, luvs!

Monday Remix: Gingham and Vermilion

Hellooo!

Technically it´s still spring but it looks so much like summer in this part of the world for two weeks now. How about you in your side of the world? :)

Anyway, today´s outfit is a remix of things that I´ve worn last year. After doing a thorough closet spring cleaning the other day, I´ve noticed that I have a lot of tops and skirts that are waiting to be mixed and matched and so here´s one of them:

2015-06-05 15.35.25

Vermilion( red orange) is my go to color when I´m stuck with black and white gingham print aside form yellow, black and white. I´m safe like that, hahaha!

2015-06-05 15.35.37

As usual, I´m matchy-matchy with this look and pardon for the lack of an accent bling. I wore this outfit when we went down to have a late lunch at our fave restaurant just around the corner. As usual, I was in my pajamas when we decided to eat out and so I just changed the pjs for the skirt, added on some flats and a crossbody bag and voila! :)

I wore the hanging top and skirt first in these photos:
