I know I have been m.i.a for a (long) while, and I sincerely apologize! But I am back on track, and ready to share looks that are full of sunshine, and SO ready for spring/summer! As I am sure so are all of you who have suffered from this long and miserable winter! Here is one of my favorite look to wear when it isn’t quite summer yet, but you can relax in a nice terrace or a rooftop sipping on ice tea, and getting a little sun (burn) ;)

Ya se que ha pasado bastante tiempo desde mi ultimo post, pero aqui estoy de nuevo preparada para la primavera y el solecito! Me imagino que much@s de vosotr@s estais igual que yo anticipando la primavera y deseando que llegue ya el invierno! Espero que os guste este simple y comodo look, perfecto para un dia de solecito en la terraza de un cafe…

Élegance, simplicité, qualité

Romy & Ray

As I sit here in one of my favorite coffee shops in DC, looking out the window I see the streets covered in snow (again), and it’s March!! I don’t mean to sound annoying to many around me (especially to my hubby, lo siento), but I am so OVER this cold and snow, and am ready for Spring, anytime you want to arrive, I will be here to welcome you Spring:) But I am not always complaining, and I have realized that in order to feel less miserable I need the right garments, since I am not a fan of layering, and am not used to this cold, I was delighted to find out about this new Parisian knitwear brand Romy and Ray! Everything about Romy’s (the designer) garments subtly and beautifully say Parisian style, “élégance, simplicité, et qualité”…

Romy & Ray

Romy & Ray I can’t even begin to tell you how long it’s been since I have been looking for that perfect cape, that won’t look beautiful, but will fit perfectly, keep me warm (without too many layers), and simply say quality. So when I received my box, I was more than surprised, I did expect to get beautiful garments (in my next posts you will see what other pieces I got from Romy & Ray), but I was blown away by the quality of the knitwear! So enough talking, here is my Sunday (comfy) look, wearing my Romy & Ray cape, while my hubby and me went for a cappucino and a quick stop to buy this beautiful tullip bouquet!

Os escribo sentada en uno de mis coffee shops preferidos, y mirando hacia fuera las calles siguen cubridas de nieve (de nuevo), no quiero sonar pesada, pero no puedo mas con este frio, y con la nieve! Primavera por favor te pido que no tardes mucho en llegar, ya estamos en Marzo!! Asi que para combatir este frio, he decidido encontrar las piezas esenciales y necesarias para no sufrir y congelarme de frio:)

Spring Heights

Spring may seem far away for most of us, with this unbearable cold winds, but a girl can dream and prepare at the same time! So why don’t we look at our style options for when the nice weather decides to grace us with it’s presence… Here are a few heels I see myself wearing this spring… And yes I love Jimmy Choo’s!

Cada dia que pasa la primavera parece mas lejana aqui en DC, entre la nieve y los frios vientos, parece que nunca llegara… Pero siempre tenemos que estar preparadas y soñar que al despertar la primavera nos sorprendera! Asi que yo me preparo con estilo, y aqui teneis mis tacones preferidos para esta primavera! Y si estoy bastante obsesionada con Jimmy Choo;)

Valentine's Day

This past week has been a little hectic for me, which didn’t leave me much time to post! I have been sick, a few snow storms got in the way, so my hubby was working from home (which gave us some quality time together), and of course Valentine’s Day (which we made a whole long weekend out of)! How did you all spend your Love day? We went out for dinner the night before, and he surprised me by taking me to a fancy and romantic dinner at The Jefferson Hotel in DC and getting me three different bouquets of tulips, a white, a violet, and a red one… He is truly my forever Valentine…

Valentine's Day

As I was mentioning, snow has been falling and gracing us with it’s presence in DC as you all may very well be aware of, and I just couldn’t take wearing layers anymore, so the day of Valentine’s I decided to wear a warm red mohair Sandro sweater, my black shorts, comfy shoes, this beautiful TOUS necklace, and tons of delicious cupcakes to accessories;) Sometimes I just am tired of layering, and need to find those warm, cozy feminine sweaters that will keep me warm without the need to layer on top of it!

Cupcakes

Esta ultima semana ha sido una locura, por eso no he podido subir ningun post, entre los “snow storms”, estuve enferma, mi marido trabajo desde casa la mayoria de los dias (quality time), y como no San Valentin (que acabo siendo un fin de largo, en vez de solo un dia)! El dia de San Valentin en si, salimos a jugar en la nieve, y no solo me sorprendio mi marido si no que tambien me llegaron estos deliciosos cupcakes a casa, cortesia de TOUS!

Asi que decidi quitarme los “layers” de invierno, y simplemente ponerme un jersey grueso, y rojo de Sandro, para celebrar el dia del amor con color:) Y accentuarlo mas con piezas negras, y este nuevo collar romantico de TOUS. Espero que os guste…

My San Valentin Favorites

Valentine's Day

I have never been a big Valentine’s Day fan, because yes I am one of those believers that once you are with the one you love (your true Valentine), you can always make your own “love” celebration! But I must admit that it does warm heart, to see hearts everywhere, beautiful flowers, chocolates in all forms/shapes of love, and let’s not forget classy/sexy lingerie from Victoria’s Secret, and an excuse to get more gifts (jewelry, perfumes, a nice getaway…)! We all love excuses such as this, to make us feel special and to make our loved ones feel special! Here are my favorite sweets, and flowers for this love occasion…

Tulips

Tulips

Nunca he sido una gran fan del dia de San Valentin, porque soy una de esas personas que cree que cada pareja puede celebrar su amor sin tener que esperar a un dia especifico! Pero tengo que admitir que me encanta ver corazones por todas partes, flores de cada color, chocolates en forma de corazones, y como no lenceria sexy y classy de Victoria’s Secret, y lo mejor de todo una excusa para recibir mas regalos (joyeria, perfume, un viajecito romantico…)! A tod@s nos encanta excusas como este dia para sentirnos mas especiales (que otro dia cualquiera), y recordarles a nuestros queridos cuanto les adoramos! Aqui teneis mis dulces preferidos y flores preferidas para esta ocasion de amor…
