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 because I got to travel more although the pics didn´t end up on 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 accessories 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 philosophy 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 culottes 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? ;)

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? ;)

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?

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

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!


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!


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!😁

top and palazzo pants- Zara, shoes- Sfera, crossbody bag(very old)- Zara

Have a lovely mid-week ahead!

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?


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.


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!
