My pregnancy is nearing the end, and the heat is getting absolutely unbearable! But I have made a pact with myself that I will devote this one month that is left to Shirel fully and completely, because her life is going to change so much and she will learn about new emotions that she han’t experienced before. Such as love and care for her baby sister, yet she will probably feel jealousy, maybe a little fear of losing our love, which makes me so sad but I am here to remind her every minute and moment of how endless our love is for her. So this past week I chose to take her to see La Sagrada Familia because she is so crazy about Disney princess stories, and castles, I thought she would see it as this beautiful castle, and I was right she loved it and was in total awe of it, just as I am every time I see it, it never gets old and I am always as amazed as the first time. I hope you enjoy these looks of ours, as you can see my latest wardrobe is mainly Massimo Dutti dresses, they are so perfect for my pregnancy, they are comfortable, flowy, perfect for this heat and I can maintain a chic pregnancy look. For Shirel of course it goes without saying most of her wardrobe is Monnalisa I love it and so does she!

My circle of friends are all quite similar to me in the sense that they are from different backgrounds, grew up all over the world, have moved around cities and countries, and some of the attributes I love about them most is that they are adventurous, open minded, creative, and with what I consider a great eye for beauty. I think it is just natural to gravitate towards people with similar interests, and likes I guess. RYBELO is the beautiful Jewelry brand of a dear friend of mine, we met through a mutual friend when I lived in Madrid for a few months back in 2009! Milena and I instantly clicked, and we also lived shortly in Barcelona at the same time, before I got married and moved to DC. But we have always maintained our friendship, staying in touch and trying to meet whenever we can. She always had exquisite style, and a great eye for design, which is no surprise that she ended up creating her baby RYBELO, and designing beautiful pieces as the ones I am wearing in this post. Her story is truly inspiring, as she left behind a dream job in advertising to pursue a passion, and learned everything about jewelry design from the bottom to the top. I am truly picky when it comes to jewelry, just as I am I guess in everything else, but jewelry is not something I indulte myself often and when I do I like to take my time and research and find the pieces that truly speak to me so I can wear them on a day to day basis to express who I am at the moment. I also now as a mother keep in mind the fact that I will pass it on to my daughters, so I have to find the timeless pieces! With RYBELO I can truly testify that these pieces are not only timeless, but their quality and price are just what we bling addicts need:) I hope you enjoy the pieces I picked to wear and treasure, and do check out the collection it is truly beautiful. So proud of you Milena! Besos

I honestly never thought Shirel would be such a girly girl, she doesn’t just love dresses she is absolutely passionate about them! She will point at the ones she loves, will say WOW with sparkly eyes, and will jump up and down with excitement when wearing them:) I think it is so adorable, and I know it is a pase that I want toscherish, because as she will grow older she might turn to other things she is passionate about, and I do hope it is with the same excitement as now. So for now, I enjoy dressing her in these casual and chic looks, like this Ralph Lauren dress, and of course these looks are easy to find on AlexandAlexa.com. I love styling her in a way that brings out her personality, she is like I mentioned a girly girl, but she has that other side to her that is fearless, she sings and dances anywhere, she climbs anything she thinks she can climb, she runs with the wind, and loves jumping from stairs and heights she feels she can take on, which is why these Stan Smith‘s are more than fit for her little feet. Before I leave you to scroll down the photos, I have partnered with Alex and Alexa to offer you all a 15% discount on all ítems (except the ones on sale), just use the CODE “AAxGGG” and you are set! I am sure you will find amazing pieces for your little ones.

There are many a days where I wish I could borrow some of Shirel’s clothes (Is it ok to say I’m jealous of my toddler’s wardrobe?)…and this is one of them!! I really think I need this Stella McCartney dress in an adult size 🙂 I always knew I would enjoy dressing my daughter…I guess I just didn’t realize how much fun it would be!! One of the questions I always get asked is where I shop for Shirel’s wardrobe or what my favorite brands are, and AlexandAlexa.com is my to go to online shop for Shirel. I can find my favorite brands on there, and the best selection in one place! So you can imagine how excited I was about working with them, and styling Shirel with their pieces:) This is the first look (stay tuned for many more, and follow me on Instagram to see previews of the looks & behind the scenes of the shoots Shirel is really fun:), which is this beautiful Stella McCartney dress, style with gold converse and a cool IKKS leather jacket, you can find a similar jacket by GUESS. This dress is absolutely stunning, for a casual look like this one, or for a special occasion like a wedding, styled with pretty ballerina shoes! One thing that made me SO happy, is that when Shirel dropped her ice cream on it I wiped it right away with a wet wipe, and there isn’t a stain in sight! So you can imagine my happiness:) BTW I apologize for the photo overload, but I just couldn’t choose, I love all of them!

It is no secret that I love shopping at Farfetch.com, and I have been doing so for years now. Which is why when I got the email to be part of their #TheOne campaign, I could not have been more excited. I have partnered with them in the past, and have always loved to be included in their campaigns, because it is another reason to browse around their amazing pieces, and see what the hottest pieces are for the season. This time I was on the hunt for #TheOne, that one piece that makes my heart go boom, and quite honestly it was a bit difficult picking one amongst all the treasures I found, so I must share now of course all the summer pieces I fell in love with while on my search for #TheOne! As well as my most coveted Farfetch item, and how I would style it:) Out of all of these, my most coveted piece is the J.W. Anderson logo detail purse bag in cream (but honestly in any color)! This bag makes me see the stars! I first saw it on a friend of mine this past Fall and was just mesmerized, by every little detail, by it’s fantastic quality, and simply by how it commanded my attention. I immediately knew this was the next bag I must have, for some reason it exudes power, and I want that power:) So dream if I may, when I get (or if I get) my hands on this bag, I would style it with these pieces for the summer. I usually go to either Ibiza, or Mallorca in the summer, but this summer we might ventura to Italy somewhere like Positano is definitely an option, so this is the look I envision while scrolling around with my new J.W. Anderson bag!
Here you can see the pieces I found along the way on my search for #TheOne, or you can also browse on the Pinterest board I created for the campaign.
To get my inspiration, I always head over to Pinterest, and this time is no exception, I digged into my Summer Style board to get inspiration for #TheOne and how I would style my most coveted Farfetch piece this summer!
