WIWW: The Wrap Around Skirt

Heeeeeyyyy!

How are you? I know it´s been like almost three months(!!!) since my last post, it´s been a while isn´t it? No apologies here because I know you´ll be hearing the same reason again and again --- real life took over blogger life, big time, hehe.

Anyway, summer´s in full swing while the sales are about to end. It´s a good thing that I was able to snatch this top and skirt up before they´re finally sold out. They´re so comfy, mind you!

My style´s gone super minimalist these days and with this heat, a T-shirt, wrap around skirt and some leather slides( a la Birkenstock) combo is my go to uniform almost every day. The less clothes we put on, the better it is, right?  Never mind that I look like a stump in these slides but they´resooo light.  Just don´t forget the sunglasses and sunblock and we´re good to go and conquer the sun!

So what´s your go to combination this season? Love to hear from you!

WIWW: Color Blocking in Dusty Rose and Blue

Good morning, everyone!

How´s your week so far? So here I am again after a month of not posting anything, hahaha! Anyway, with all the shades of pink that has been trending this spring, I couldn´t help but pick a few tops in my favorite shade, dusty rose and pair it with a dark blue culottes:

Pardon the grumpy face, we took these pics in a flash (pun intended) at someone´s garage door and so it was a flurry of clicks and we´re gone before  the owner can even say ¨hello and ask ¨whatchudoin on my garage door ¨. 😅

I also upgraded my bag collection with a faux snakeskin printed crossbody bag in yep, pink(and red), hehehe. Mango is killing it in the bag department lately. This season there are a lot of really cute bags with affordable prices and I was able to buy a few without breaking the bank nor waiting for the sales season. That´s great isn´t it? ;)

The culottes are from Primark´s last winter sale. Although I´m loving their length, it´s a little bit big on me and so I´m giving this to my Mom. I´m sure she would like this style because it looks like a skirt but it´s a pair of pants. It´s sooo comfy, it´s too bad it´s big on me!

top- Stradivarius, culottes- Primark, crossbody bag- Mango, shoes- Zara
So, are you crazy for pink too? Enjoy the mid week! :)

Monday Remix: Stripes and Cut-offs

Hello, hellooo!

18a42780-9163-458f-a467-d5b1d4211ae7

Today, I´ve decided to put on some metallic stripes instead of the pink overloaded that has taken over everyone´s closet this season. Oh and I did cave in and bought a pink top ( just one beacause  I already have a growing collection from several years of ¨curating¨ the color ) and you´ll be seeing it soon. But for now, here are some stripes to break the monotone that´s pink that you´re seeing in everyone´s blog:

Monday Remix All Blue and Fuchshia

Good morning, my darlings!

Finally, it´s spring, yay! Have you done your spring cleaning? ;)

2017-02-16 15.14.25

I have but then last weekend, the temperatures dropped to winter-y levels and so I´m back to my thick puffer jacket again. What´s new? This is one of those times of the year where the weather turns bright and summery to cold---- freezing cold in like... a day? Anyway, on those days where it´s sunny, I make do with a thick sweater/jumper like this one I´m wearing:

2017-02-16 15.14.342017-02-16 15.14.20

It´s quite thick and warm still ( no need to put on a jacket with it) and colored blue which pairs well with my dark indigo and black jeans too. Oh and speaking of colors and trends here´s a new addition to my clutch collection, a fuschia colored yummy clutch from Massimo Dutti:

2017-02-16 15.14.56

I got this from the latest winter sales. Since I already have a lot of pink stuff in my closet, I thought this lovely leather clutch would match perfectly with my spring and summer outfits which could either be in chambray, white or black because I´m boring like that. 😄

sweater- Stradivarius, jeans- H&M, shoes- Zara, clutch- Massimo Dutti

So what colors are you buying lately for spring? Have a lovely week, y´all! :)

Monday Remix: Olive Green

Good morning, everyone!

I´m making the most of the cool weather before spring starts here in my city. It´s definitely getting warmer in here although we still get very low temps in the morning and later in the day when  the sun sets.

2016-12-08 17.46.20

I´m on the ¨green phase¨ ( you know me and my color phases, lol!) right now and tend to  collect favor colors like khaki, olive green and military green. This plaid scarf is my latest addition to my growing collection, oops! I bought this at my local accessories store and got a 20% discount, the perks of being friends with the owner.😻

Everything that I´m wearing are quite old and my favorite stuff to mix and match during the autumn- winter season except for the scarf which is relatively new. As for these olive green booties, I´ve noted that it did not get much attention than it derserved and so I´m wearing it as much as possible nowadays. To tell you the truth though, I´m weaing my walking shoes from Zara more than these ones, hahaha!

Have a lovely week ahead, my luvs!

Monday Remix:The Long Lost Furry Friend

Hola, holaaaa!

It´s another Monday my darlings, which means, it´s the start of another week. Time flies so fast indeed and the weather´s getting fantastic every week aka, more sunny days and higher temps. Yey!

2017-02-18 17.55.00

You all know that the furry coat took center stage aside from the pufffer jacket this season, right? I mean they even come in different sizes and colors! The bigger or more furry, better. I´ve always associated fur coats with elegant dressing because with jeans? Uhmm, not really my style. But last weekend, on a lunch daye with my grilfriends, everything changed:

2017-02-18 17.54.56
top and shoes- Zara, jeans- Pull & Bear, bag- Bimba & Lola, coat- vintage fur

I finally wore it with jeans and I´m loving it! The hubz was telling me to wear my new leopard coat but in the end, the practical side in me won because it´s a chilly day and our lunch always extends to dinner later. 😸 I can´t believe I´ve had this coat for more than three years but just let it hang in my closet wasting away. It´s a hand me down vintage fur, by the way!

2017-02-18 17.57.09

Oh and looking at my old pics, I forgot that I wore this coat with faux leather leggings in 2014 while visiting a ski resort in the mountains of Ezcarray in the La Rioja region of Spain. So yeah,it isn´t only for elegant dressing after all! 😁

2014-02-15 17.20.23


Do you have a furry coat in your closet? How do you style it?

WIWW: The V- Day Look

Good morning,everyone!

It´s been a month since my last post. I know  and I´ve no excuses this time, hehe.😍 Anyway, you all know that yesterday was Valentines Day. We didn´t go out for dinner because, ya know, falling in line to get seats in a super crowded restaurant isn´t our cup of tea. We went to lunch instead near our place. And... cliché of all clichés, yes, I wore red, hahaha!

2017-02-14 15.53.55

The sun was up and bright yesterday and  the temperature was spring-y. Truth be told, I´m quite fed up of wearing thick sweaters and so I pulled out this Burberry wool sweater from my bottom drawer and amy current pair of comfy jeans and voila, V-day outfit solved!

2017-02-14 15.54.102017-02-14 15.49.38

I´ve always been wary of wearing boyfriend jeans because they make me look like a sack of potatoes but I think I found the right pair(though it´s still quite loose on the hips) that makes me look alright. Besides, this is a great pair to wear for lunch/ dinner because it´s loose, aka hides the extra bulge. The best deal of all is that  I got this for 5.99€ from the sales! If this isn´t a steal, then what? ;)

2017-02-14 15.54.06
top- Burberry, jeans- Pull&Bear, crossbody bag- Bimba&Lola, booties- local store
So how did your Valentines Day went yesterday?

WIWW: Blue, Black and Some Leopard

Happy New Year, my darlings! :)

IMG_0965

The hubz and I decided to escape to sunny Seville, Spain to welcome the year for a change. It was heaven to be able to wear just a light jacket or even a faux fur-lined cardigan (just like what I´m wearing) instead of a thick puffer jacket + huge scarf combo for a few days. To complement the blue and black color scheme, I used a leopard printed saddle bag which I´ve had since more than a year ago.

I´ve gained a few pounds from the pre and post holiday parties which I attended here and there and so dark blue and black were my favorite colors to wear nowadays, hahaha!

So how´s the first nine days of 2017 been treating you? Freaking cold, I know! Europe´s freezing, for real. Bundle up, people !!!
