Why my mouth is open in most of these photos is beyond me.  But let’s move on.  Clearly, this gal is not letting go of skirts or sandals– at least not any time soon. For as long as there is sunshine and 70 degree weather, expect to see outfits like this one.  Been eyeing this mini skirt, the plaid print is perfect for fall and I can’t have enough white tops, they’re so clean and classic and go with everything.  This ensemble is perfect for a night out with your beau or chicas!  Hope you’re having a phenomenal week.  Besitos!

¿Por qué mi boca está abierta en la mayoría de estas fotos?  Realmente no me explico así que me disculpan de antemano.  Está claro que no pienso dejar de usar mini faldas ni sandalias hasta que no se ponga super frío– siempre y cuando haya sol y 70 grados de temperatura, esperen ver propuestas como esta. He estado mirando esta mini falda, el estampado de cuadros es perfecto para el otoño y no puedo tener suficiente de camisas blancas, son tan clásicas y van con todo. Este conjunto es perfecto para unas copitas con su chico y sus amigas! Espero que estén teniendo una semana fenomenal. Besitos! Xo

I’m not ready to give up mini skirts and open toe sandals.  Sigh.  With that said, we’re starting to feel that wonderful fall chill that I love so much.  Here’s a great way to transition some of your favorite summer pieces to fall: simply pairing them with this season’s must haves.  I’m a sucker for gray sweatshirts and every season I’m on the hunt for the perfect one— I got this one from Madewell and I love it because it’s not too thick.  It’s perfect for fall weather and will transition into winter layered over a button down shirt or worn under a warm coat.  Personally, I think it’s the perfect staple that can be dressed up or down.  This would go great with my BF jeans to run errands on the weekend, but can also be dressed up with a mini skirt and statement necklace like I’m wearing here.  The skirt is Theory scored at Nordstrom Rack and this beautiful necklace was a gift from a friend in Mexico, the designer is Laura Cantu and her pieces are GORGEOUS!

No estoy lista a renunciar a las mini faldas y sandalias todavía.  Dicho esto, estamos empezando a sentir esa maravillosa brisa de otoño que tanto amo.  Aquí les muestro una manera fácil de utilizar sus piezas de verano aun cuando cambia la temporada.  A mi me encantan los suéteres tipo sudaderos y pienso que se pueden usar para un look casual con jeans, pero también para un propuesta mas sofisticada con un collar de declaración como me la puse aquí.  La falda es de Theory y la conseguí en Nordstrom Rack y este hermoso collar fue un regalo de una amiga en México, la diseñadora es Laura Cantú y sus piezas son preciosas!

Dinner With My #Glamfam

Happy Friday chicas!  NYFW has finally come to an end……it was an exhausting week to say the least, but so much fun.  My feet are finally in flats and begging to never be in heels again.  One of the most fun nights of the week was attending the Glam NYFW dinner and seeing all of my fellow blogger buddies— so great catching up with some of the gals that live out of town and hearing everyone’s crazy NYFW stories.  Here’s a video they shot packed with all of the action.  Happy Friday folks and have an awesome weekend!

Readers Q&A: Style Edition With Target


Target Q&A

Hello my lovelies!!  I’ve teamed up with Target to have an open and honest chat with my followers about style, obvi.  Earlier this week I invited you to tell me what was one thing you loved about style and one of the things you found challenging.  Your comments started pouring in and I couldn’t wait to tackle them and give you some solutions.  The truth is that we all have style challenges and I hope you find the advice helpful as many of these are pretty universal and I think you will all be able to relate.

Challenge #1: Feeling sexy while covering up your curves.

Solution: Sexy is a state of mind and you don’t need to be in a tight dress to feel that way.  When I want to feel sexy, I throw on a pair of heels and put on red lipstick, it always does the trick. Coveting this pair and these. And LOVE this Sonia Kashuk lipstick in Classic Red.

Challenge #1:  Mixing patterns and NOT looking like a clown.

Solution: Thinking that you can’t mix prints and patterns, stripes and plaids is an outdated theory– I know it may seem intimidating, but you need to go for it.  I have two simple rules: try to go with a complementary color family.  Try to stick with simple graphic prints, like stripes, plaid and polka dots, especially in black and white because they go with everything.  Lastly if you’re completely intimidated by the trend, break it up with a solid piece.  Here’s a video I shot with Target a few months ago where I mixed prints and it totally worked!

Challenge #3: Accessorizing.

Solution: I know this can be hard sometimes, but less is more when it comes to accessories. I really believe in focusing on one key piece that makes a statement and everything else should be understated. Also make sure that the pieces are proportionate to your body frame, if you’re petite, stay away from a big chunky necklace and opt for a statement bracelet instead.  Your accessory shouldn’t be the one thing people notice.  Stay away from matching sets, it’s such an outdated approach– mix pieces up, it makes accessorizing more fun and interesting.  Love these two statement necklaces, one and two and this bracelet (all under $20).

Challenge #4: Finding that ONE versatile piece that can fit into the many roles in your life.

Solution: Boyfriend jeans! with a blazer and flats for work, with converse sneakers to run errands and with heels for dinner.  Voila!

Challenge #5: Do you need to match your purse to your shoes?

Solution: This is the most outdated style rule in the book– matchy matchy is not cool and that applies to your shoes and purse.  Mixing your shoes and purses will give your outfit more personality, so have some fun!

Challenge #6: When you work from home, finding an outfit that does not entail yoga pants day in and day out.

Solution (but not really!):  I work from home a few days a week and it’s also a challenge for me, but there’s no other way to work from home than being in loungewear.  So what I do is find cute ensembles that are loung-y and pretty, I also change them every day and that makes it feel special.  I never wear the same loungewear two days in a row.

Challenge #7: A new wardrobe, where to begin?

Solution: Back to basics! Few pieces here: A classic black bag, a basic white shirtBlack pumps and Flats here.

Challenge #8: Transitioning summer pieces into fall.

Solution: Roll your skirt right into fall by swapping sandals for ankle booties, here’s a pair I love and this pair!

This gal here has been taking advantage of every sale out there– yes, still shopping for summer pieces.  I stumbled upon this dress on ASOS, I got the orange version and wore it so often this summer that why not get it again?  I wore this printed version to the office with a blazer and then took it off for a night out.   This dress can be worn with heels or flats– it’s super comfy and lose just where you want it giving you an effortless look that still looks pulled together.  Happy shopping!

Shop The Look:

No les puedo negar que he estado tomando ventaja de cada venta que veo! Sí, todavía estoy comprando piezas de verano. Me encontré con este vestido en ASOS, tengo la versión naranja y me lo he puesto tan a menudo este verano que porqué no tenerlo en otro color? Me lo puse para ir a la oficina con un blazer y luego me lo quité para salir de noche. Este vestido se puede usar con tacones o flats– es súper cómodo y se ve muy chic. La mejor parte es que esta a la venta!

New York Fashion Week: What To Wear!

New York Fashion Week has sprung upon us once again and I had the BEST time with the Glam team, Olivia from The Corporate Catwalk and Fallon from Sage & Sparkle last week shooting this video on WHAT TO WEAR!  Planning outfits for the week can be quite overwhelming and by the time it is over your feet just hate you for putting them through so much trauma.  But let’s not talk about the drama and let’s focus on how fun (and nerve wracking) it is to put together your outfits for that week.  Oh, the pressure!  I know it sounds so boring, but the truth is that the week should be called “Running Around Week”– you’re going from one show to another and for me, I’m in and out of the office, running to meetings between shows, meeting friends for lunch and hopefully, having cocktails and dinner at the end of the day.  So I really need an outfit that can take me from day to night– that’s polished enough for the office and meetings, but also on trend.  So for this look I went with a floral trouser, a black blouse that has this pretty appliqué around the neckline and an off white blazer because it’s the perfect time to start layering.  Paired the look with really high pumps that are super chic.  You should that I always keep a pair of flats in my purse that I alternate throughout the day.  My colorful clutch is so chic and gives my classic outfit a little oomph.  The details on what I wore will be featured in a post next week, so stay tuned!!

On a separate, exciting note, I’ve teamed up with Target to for an exciting Q&A with you, my followers!  All you need to do is leaving me a comment telling me, what you LOVE about style and one thing that you find challenging.  I will highlight my favorite answers and address the challenges with style pointers in a post next week.  So here’s your chance to Real Talk with me!  Can’t wait to hear about the things you love and what you find challenging about style.  Besitos!

La Semana de la Moda de Nueva York ha surgido sobre nosotros una vez mas y me junte con el equipo con el equipo de Glam la semana para grabar un vídeo sobre qué ponerse! La planificación de que ponerse para la semana puede ser bastante abrumadora pero no vamos a hablar sobre el drama y vamos a centrarnos en lo divertido (y angustioso): armar los atuendos para esa semana. Oh, la presión! Sé que suena muy aburrido, pero la verdad es que la semana debería ser llamada “Running Around Week” – uno va desde un desfile de moda a otro y para mí, que estoy dentro y fuera de la oficina, corriendo a las reuniones entre los desfiles, reuniendome con amigas para almorzar y en la noche siempre hay una cena.  Así que realmente necesito un traje que me pueda llevar de el día a la noche– suficientemente pulido para la oficina y reuniones, pero que también sea chic. Así que para este look me fui con un pantalón floral, una blusa de color negro que tiene este bonito adorno alrededor del cuello y una chaqueta color crema.  Para este atuendo me los combine con unos tacones altos, negros y esta cartera super mona que me encanta.  Los detalles sobre mi atuendo estarán disponibles en un post la semana que viene.

En una nota aparte y emocionante, mis amigos de Target y yo le tenemos algo emocionante a mis seguidores.  Déjenme un comentario diciéndome que que les gusta de la moda y lo que se les hace difícil en cuanto se trata de la moda o cual es su reto mas grande.  La semana que viene voy a destacar mis respuestas favoritos y voy a incluir unos consejitos para ayudarlas con sus problemitas.  Así que no dejen de dejarme sus comentarios! Besitos. Xo

Seriously? It finally feels like the HOT summer I was craving all summer long!  And in honor of the scorching weather, how about a pretty romper from Yumi Kim?  You all know how I feel about florals and I never thought I would fall in love with rompers all over again.  Yumi Kim is notorious for bold floral patterns in bright colors and I just had to snatch this one when I saw that it was on SUPER SALE.  This is probably one of my last purchases of this summer (sniff, sniff), but one that will definitely be seen again next year.  Paired here with my Schutz gladiator sandals– perfect for running around in style.

¿En serio? Finalmente se siente como el verano caliente que he estado esperando! Y honor al calorcito que está haciendo decidí ponerme este romper de Yumi Kim que encontré a la venta en Saks Off Fifth. Todos ustedes saben lo mucho que me gustan los estampados florales y yo nunca pensaba que iba a enamorarme de los mamelucos de nuevo. Yumi Kim es una linea notoria por estampados florales en colores vivos que me encantan. Esta es probablemente una de mis últimas compras de este verano, pero que sin duda será visto de nuevo el año que viene. En combinación con mis sandalias gladiadoras de Schutz que no me las he apeado este verano.

I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet.  Insert: internal cry happening now.  Sigh.  Hope you all had a fantastic Labor Day weekend!  We wrapped up our stay upstate and gave up our beautiful rental, which we called home for most of the summer– it was a sad day.  I never thought I would be so enamored with the countryside, but it really suited me.  It’s probably the most peaceful and serene summer we’ve had, taking all of the nature in, experiencing gorgeous sunsets every night, shopping at the farmers market— a truly magical time! Now I’m back to the grind– completely re-energized and ready to give you all I’ve got for Fall!  But not just yet– you’ll see that I’ll still be wearing some summer-y pieces that can easily transition into fall, like this matching top and skirt set that I’m just in LOVE with.  First, floral is huge for fall, so don’t put your pretty flowers away just yet.  It’s still too hot to throw anything over this, but I can’t wait to wear this with a light leather jacket and killer black pumps (yeah, you can visualize it!).  Anyhow, this little number will def be seen during fashion week.  A lot of exciting things coming to the blog this Fall– so stick along for a fun ride.

No estoy lista para dejar ir el verano todavía. Suspiro.  Espero que todos hayan tenido un fin de semana fantástico Día del Trabajo! Tristemente terminamos nuestra estancia en la casa de verano que alquilamos este ano, nos fuimos super tristes ayer.  Nunca pensé que estaría tan enamorada de el campo.  Es probablemente el verano más tranquilo y sereno que hemos tenido, rodeados de la naturaleza, viendo unos atardeceres espectaculares, un verano realmente mágico! Ahora estoy de vuelta a la ciudad– revitalizada por completo y lista para darles lo mejor de mi ahora que viene el otoño! Pero no tan pronto!  Verás que todavía voy a estar usando algunas piezas de verano y que pueden hacer la transición al otoño, como este conjunto que me tiene loca. En primer lugar, los estampados florales es una tendencia que continua para el otoño. Todavía esta demasiado caliente para ponerme una chaqueta sobre esto, pero no puedo esperar para llevar esto con una chaqueta de cuero ligera y tacones altos cerrados negros (sí, usted puede visualizarlo). De todos modos, este conjunto definitivamente será visto durante la semana de la moda. Un montón de cosas interesantes que vienen a el blog esta otoño– preparasen para un largo de un paseo divertido.
