WIWW: Stripes, Chambray and Green

Helloooo!

2015-04-12 13.55.46

I´ve been posting a lot of jeans/pants combos in the blog lately(student life´s turned me into a boring dresser,hahaha! ) and so I put on a skirt and an old trusty chambray top for a change. I´m still mixing and matching old pieces from my closet although the mid-season sales are so tempting, even Zara´s having one right now. I don´t know how long I can resist not shelling out a few euros because when I´m stressed out I sale shop, heheh.

Leaving you with a blooper shot that the hubz took at the beginning of the shoot. I was laughing very hard because the neighbor´s dog wouldn´t go away and wanted to photobomb. After about five minutes of coaxing he finally went away to join the the other dogs, lol!

WIWW: Pale Hues

Happy Wednesday, all!

2015-03-29 14.09.43

The day´s getting warmer everyday and the sun´s setting longer too. Spring´s in town, people, I hope you´re enjoying it as much as I do. :) Anyway, when spring arrives, my color choices tend to go towards the lighter side of the spectrum athough I sill accessorize with dark colors in mind like this brown clutch which I´ve had for years.

I still haven´t done my spring cleaning. Have you? And I´m still shopping from my closet. After many years of just buying hoarding things, I´ve come to realize that you only need the basics to dress everyday. It´s just a question of mixing, matching and accessorizing everything and you´re done. So I pulled out all the must haves and this pair of printed pants for some oomph to the whole look.

Have a lovely mid-week, y´all!

Monday Remix: Ripped, Mottled and a Pewter Colored Jacket

Good morning!

2015-03-28 17.53.46

So spring´s finally here, yey! I thought that it would never come because just three days ago we´re having snow. See that white foamy patch near my left foot in the picture below? That´s what´s left of winter, hihi. :) Anyway, here´s what I wore last weekend while visiting MIL, just the good ole basics( wet hair included) of a mottled/ tie dyed printed ripped jeans, a linen buttondown, a pewter colored faux leather jacket  and not an ounce of jewelry because we´re in hurry.

I wonder if it´s time to do a little spring cleaning this week, the weather´s been really great although when you live in a city where it´s sunny today and then it´s winter tomorrow, you´d never know what to keep in your closet, lol! We´re having the annual Holy Week holidays this week and I´m so excited because we´re travelling to the eastern part of Spain in Catalonia. Hopefully, I´d be able to show you some decent outfit posts soon.

WIWWW: Spring Hath Come

Good morning, dears!

Here´s something light and breezy to usher in spring 2015 which is SO not happening today because it´s snowing in my side of town. Booo!

2014-10-18 18.29.32

Anyway, these are pics from early autumn of last year which I wasn´t able to post because my real life became busier, hehehe. A pair of white rolled up pants and light checks in lavender and gray would be the perfect look to usher in spring, no?

2014-10-18 17.45.11

I only wore this white ¨boyfriend¨ jeans twice last year ( I know, I´m really bad at remixing) but this year, you´re going to see a LOT of this classic colored pair especially that my dressing mantra these days is the minimalist look. There´s nothing more minimalist than pairing anything with white, right? ;)

bag(odl)- Bimba & Lola, leather bangle(old)- Massimo Dutti

 These pics were taken on a trip to Haro in the La Rioja region of Spain, one of my favorite places to visit near my place. When you´re a wine and tapa lover this is THE PLACE for you, I guarantee ( double thumbs up here)!

Monday Remix: This Shirt Dress

Good morning, dahlings!

I have a soft spot for denim shirt dresses because it reflects my dressing philosophy in life nowadays which is laid back and no fuss aka ¨lazy dressing¨, lol! So if I would have to wear a dress everyday, it should only be denim, right? ;)

2015-03-10 18.07.05

We had the sun up for almost two weeks and so I was able to wear this shirt dress with a light jacket but then, reality sunk in again and right now we´re back to winter mode. Oh well, at least it´s ending really soon and oh please, please, please, I hope it really does soon.

jacket and shirt dress- Stradivarius, bag- Bimba& Lola

Here are some of the ways that I styled the jacket and the denim/chambray shirt dress:

WIWW: A Mix of Winter and Spring

Hello all!

Is my blogging posting groove back on? ;)

2015-03-01 14.13.46

After almost half a year of sporadic posting, I finally got to take some more outfit pics to show you today. Oh well, it isn´t much but at least  I got to post some, hahaha! Here´s my take on dressing up in-between seasons:

2015-03-01 14.13.33
top and clutch( AW 2013), skirt- Stradivarius
And by that, I mean winter and ... spring which is just a few days away.Yey! To be honest, I´m kinda fed up of wearing bulky winter sweaters and so wearing something with a light texture and color´s like a ¨a breath of fresh air¨on my winter wardrobe costume. Of course, it still has to cover my neck and I have to wear tights because it´s still a wee bit cold and windy in here and hey, we´re still in winter mode technically!

2015-03-01 14.13.41
sweater(old), clutch ( old)-Zara, skirt- Stradivarius, shoes- Janilyn( Philippine brand)

So what about you? Are you ready for some spring dressing or like me, you´re still caught in between seasons?

Happy Wednesday, all!

Love,

Che
