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!

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? ;)

2014-10-18 18.04.22
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)!

Happy midweek!

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.

2015-03-10 18.13.16
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:

So... Monday´s here again. What´s the plan this week?

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

Monday Remix: Black and Gold

The other day, I wore an old favorite. My first peacoat, the first coat that I bought here in Spain since arriving from my little tropcal country seven years ago. Surprisingly, it held up really well after wearing it every winter. :)

2015-01-25 12.57.47

Inside, I wore a leopard printed skirt and denim vest in gold to celebrate a rare sunny day which we had the other day. I don´t know about you in there but in the last two months of winter, we´re having only bad weather. That´s why you can´t find any street photos of me in the blog ( aside from being busy with school) because it´s either snowing or raining a lot outside.

2015-01-25 12.58.08


2015-01-25 12.57.33

Here´s one last shot in the shade, the vest looks orange-y, hahaha!

2015-01-25 12.58.22
vest top- Zara, leopard skirt(old)- Stradivarius, clutch(old)- Pull&Bear

I first wore the leopard skirt in 2013:

Exams period is about to end and so I might be posting more outfit pics soon. In the meantime, I wish you  a lovely week ahead.

Kisses!

Monday Remix: Here and There

Hello, hellooo!

So I´ve been gone again, hahaha! I know I´ve been neglecting this little virtual corner for more than a month now(eeps!) but I hope to continue where I left  so much so that the weather´s a little bit better for some outfit posts. My personal life´s still pretty hectic though so if I ´ll miss some outfit posts in the coming days, it means I´m swamped with school work. Anyway, here are some casual pics that we took during my hiatus. First was a plaid, jeans, jacket and Converse conbo while visiting  a small town in Portugal late autumn of last year:

2014-12-06 12.18.05

I had the pic taken at an old Romanesque bridge in the middle of somewhere with a fantasic bucolic view:

2014-12-06 12.09.56

The hubz and I were thinking about buying this more than a hundred year old stone house for sale. Nah, it was a joke about buying, we´re 100%  city people although spending summer over this tiny and peaceful village is quite tempting. ;)

2014-12-06 12.24.18

Over the Christmas break last year, we stopped by Valencia, Spain. I really  missed this place.

2014-12-28 16.54.40


Aside from paella, these are what I love most about Valencia, it´s famous sweet and flavorful oranges. You gotta try them and orange trees are everywhere in this city!

2014-12-28 16.56.00


And finally, about two weeks ago, we had a weekender in Madrid to visit a trade fair and a side visit to the Archaelogical Museum which is the best interactive museum I´ve visited so far Spain, France and Portugal combined. If archaelogy and old artifacts are your thing, you should visit Madrid´s Museo Arqueológico, it´s worth it.

2015-01-31 18.16.41


My very casual OOTD in Madrid. The coat´s a recent sale find in Mango, it´was 60% off. Great deal, no?

2015-02-01 17.43.38
coat- Mango, jeans(old)- Zara, bag and booties- Bimba& Lola

So how have you been?

Love, love,
