Monday Remix: Snakeskin and the Red Tote

Good morning my darling blogger friends and readers!

2014-07-17 20.10.49

How was your weekend? Mine was busy and rowdy. It´s fiesta season here in my side of the world and over the weekend, it was our barrio´s turn. Unfortunately, they also placed the concert stage and everything else on the street near our place and so you can just imagine the noise fun that my neighbors and I went through for two whole nights until the early morning. ;) It´s okay though, this only happens one weekend every year and we can we live with that. The important thing is our sleepy barrio is alive and all the kids in our place are happy. :)

Anyway, I´m back to my uniform of just a top, jeans and flat sandals. To add a little pizazz to the look, I chose a snakeskin printed top over a solid gray one and wore a red tote bag for color. Gray and red is another surefire color palette for me, agree?

I wore this one afternoon for an ice-cream date with one of my girlfriends. I could have worn shorts or a skirt with my top but since we´re planning to stay in town until evening, I wore jeans because of the abrupt change in temp once the sun sets and besides my legs have turned toasty brown from wearing shorts for three days, hehe.

I first wore this printed snakeskin shirt more than a year ago when I went to Portugal. It´s soft and very light, perfect for those really hot days where you want to feel cool but don´t want to burn your legs. That´s why I wore pants with it, hahaha!

I love loveeee gray paired with red - it's the perfect color combination. Hope you catch up on your sleep (I hattttte when my sleep is disturbed).

Dressing for the evening when you'll be out all day is so difficult. I always find that I'm worried about being too hot and getting sweaty but at the same time I worry about being too cold come the evening. I think you did well of pairing those grey jeans with that snakeskin top and I think the red bracelet and bag are the perfect accents.

i hope you had some fun at your Barrio party!!

I LOVE the snakeskin top and the red tote! SO CUTE! I'm so jealous that your legs turn toasty brown in three days! Half way through summer and I still look albino! Hee!
Loving your style, Dear!
