Here is my second Zadig & Voltaire look, as I mentioned in my previous post, I partnered with Zadig & Voltaire’s boutique located at CityCenter DC, to show you my favorite pieces for casual Holiday looks! I know this is the time we are all trying to find pieces and looks for all the coming Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving dinners, as well as Christmas and NYE, usually it’s dresses and heels, but I am a mommy to a 13 month old toddler who needs my constant attention and of course gives quite a workout by making me run around after her. Therefore I picked casual yet chic looks like this one, that I can use be it for a day outing or a Thanksgiving dinner. I instantly fell in love with each and every garment I am wearing, and I literally was chasing after Shirel as my hubby was taking these pics, so voila exactly what I need! This fur vest caught my eye right away, and this silky flowy blouse falls perfectly on your body and is light as air which I love, and of course my favorite bag of the moment this XS Candide, which comes in 3 different sizes but nowadays I am devoted to tiny mini bags like this one, because I can throw everything else in the stroller’s bag! Hope you enjoy this look, Besos. PS you guys should head over to their site as thee have Early Access Black Friday Sales, with up to 50% OFF. Just Sayin’…
By now I should’ve been writing to you all from Barcelona, while sipping a cortado and enjoying the amazing weather that usually embaraces us around this time of year in my city. Unfortunately that didm’t happen, since Lufthansa has major caben crew strikes, and I wasn’t let on my flight due to that, I must say that the last few trips I have taken from DC to Barcelona there is always something that just has to happen when we travel! So always looking on the positive note (though I spent one day without leaving the house in utter most sad mode, since it was grey and rainy, to match my mood) we get to spend more time with my hubby, friends and family. Rewinding to the weekend before I was supposed to fly out, we decided to take a mini trip to Downtown Alexandria since I had never been, with our Tahoe Chevrolet, which has become my favorite car ever, the most exciting thing for me was how easy it is to travel with Shirel, since we can put the stroller without folding, there is so much room in the car, and I felt like a serious VIP on the road, not too shabby. Stay posted to more details on this beautiful car in my next post. For a day trip I am always looking for comfort therefore athletic wear is my to go to, here you see me wearing my new Nike gear, with my Native shoes, and bien sur my Stella bag. Hope you enjoy it, Besos.
The Holiday season has officially begun, I took a quick trip to Target yesterday to get random things I needed , and suddenly the aisles that were filled with Halloween costumes, and candy have turned into all sparkly, red, white and green Christmas tones! I know Halloween was over a week ago, but it still hand’t really hit me, because we had spring like weather until now, but yes we are headed into December very soon, and the crazy fun Holiday memories are just around the corner. Which is why I have partnered with Zadig & Voltaire’s boutique in City Center DC, to show you my favorite pieces for the Holiday and colder days to come. Zadig & Voltaire is one of my favorite brands, I love not only their designs, and brand essence, but the quality and cut of their garments. Every piece I tried on seemed to perfectly mold into my body shape, and trust me I do not have an easy body shape (Im sure most of you know what Im talking about), I have a tiny waist, wide hips, and not such long legs, (thankfully I have a full head of thick wavy hair)! So that combination can be very tricky when trying on clothes and shopping, not to say absolutely furstrating at times. But with this brand, I have learned that their garments fit beautifully, their cashmere sweaters, their sexy yet basic tees, their coats, and even their pants, though some of them do fit quite small (but they esqueje everything into place, I love that). Their rocker yet city vibe is so perfect for winter looks, because I feel like I need a tougher look for winter days, so I can fight through the cold. This is my first look, which is very casual and laid back, and the accesorios definitely add a spark to it, I hope you enjoy this look!
Who from the 90’s didn’t wear a bomber jacket and Doc Martins to school? I know I did, and I know I loved every minute and absolutely thought I was the coolest kid around! Which is why wearing this Alpha Industries bomber jacket makes me feel like that cool kid all over again, don’t you guys love that feeling when you wear a garment and it instantly takes you back in time, yet it’s a better version of you (and the garment of course). What makes it better is its fit, cut, and the fact that it is reversible and then voila you have a bright fluorescent orange bomber, perfect for that moment you feel a little more daring and edgy. (I am seriously thinking of getting it in olive green too). It is also inevitable not to pare this jacket with cute heels, and a pencil skirt like this Madewell one, it is the obvious way to instantly turn the whole look into a more feminine and sexy one. My husband loved that I wore this for our date night, and guess what? Now he wants to get the same jacket, it happens quite a lot we end buying the same sneakers, or jackets, and sometimes without even realizing it we will walk out of our door wearing the exact same thing! I love how that happens.
Madewell has become one of my favorite US brands, I really love not only their designs, but the quality that they are so meticulous about. There are many garments from their new collection I would love to have in my closet, but alas I have to show some self control (I have a babygirl now, so Im not only shopping for myself anymore). My absolute favorite pieces, are this Cape Scarf, and the Mira heels, as you can see I have worn these heels quite a lot this Fall. But this scarf, has stolen my heart, I love that I can wear basic pieces, and throw this scarf on and it just transforms my look into much more, even on a Monday morning stroll with my babygirl, or sipping on my coffee at Room11! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, besos and have a great weekend! (Shirel cracks me up as you can see)
