I can’t deny that black and neutrals are usually my first picks, but from time to time (especially on a Sunday) I like to mix it up, and wear prints, or colors to brighten up my day! Usually I would’ve picked a black sweater to go with these floral trousers, but why not white? I need to break out of my mentality that since I am (pale) white, in the winter white tops will make me look paler, so I am embracing whites this winter, such as this turtleneck 😉

No niego que normalmente me verĂ©is vestida con negros o colores neutrales, pero de vez en cuando (especialmente un domingo) me gusta vestirme con un poco mĂĄs de color! Otro dĂ­a cualquiera me hubiera puesto un jersey negro con este pantalĂłn (estampado flores), pero decidi ponerme el blanco:)! Siempre pienso que porque soy blanca, en invierno cualquier prenda blanca me dejarĂĄ mĂĄs pĂĄlida de lo que soy, pero estoy descubriendo que no es asĂ­;)! Espero que os guste este look…

Black on Black on Hat

edit14 Timeless pieces is what it’s all about! This look is styled with two major timeless pieces of mine! My Pepe Jeans skinnies, that I have owned since I’m 22, they have been worn and torn endlessly, but I keep fixing them and putting them back on, I never give up on the good stuff;) And my precious hat was gifted to me by my husband, when we were young(er) and living in Barcelona:) A friend of mine had gotten it, and I had told her how much I loved it, so he decided to surprise me and get the hat! So for a few months in my early twenties, I would wear this hat everywhere and anywhere, and then just got over it and put it in the back of my closet, and never looked back! So in my last trip to Barcelona I decided to search my closet for long lost treasures, and there she was!  So now you can find me walking around the cold cold days with this lovely hat and my torn (yet fixed) pepe jeans skinnies…

edit12Siempre tenemos piezas que nos seguirån vayamos a donde vayamos! Y este sombrero lady es una de mis piezas imprescindibles! Mi marido me lo regalo hace unos años cuando vivíamos en Barcelona, y la verdad es que ya ni me acordaba de que lo tenía hasta que volvimos de visita este verano, y buscando piezas perdidas en mi armario me encontré con mi sombrero lady! Que mejor accesorio para los días de frío (insoportables) en Washington DC!

Fall Make Up Tutorial

Fall is finally upon us, and while most of us are preparing our wardrobes some of us are also thinking of fun ways to change up our Make Up to welcome this beautiful season! Once again I have teamed up with a professional make up artist Seema Khanna, so she can teach us the best tricks to get a natural smokey eye, tricks for the perfect eye liner, and an instant face lift with make up secrets;) But before we get into all the make up tricks she mentions the most important factor, getting your skin ready with the right toner and face cream! For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you are more than well aware of my profound love and loyalty for skincare brands that work for my sensitive skin, and specifically Murad Skincares! In this video  used the Murad Daily cleansing foam, their Balancing Moisturizer SPF15, and their Instant Radiance Eye Cream, which are my favorite products to keep my skin clean, glowing and moisturized this Fall!

Pale Pink Blazer & a Striped Blouse

How many of you have seen pale pink coats, sweaters, and blazers all over fashion magazines, catwalks, Pinterest, etc? I know I have, plenty of times for the past few months, and though I am not the usual one to fall into whatever trend is the hottest, I do have to admit that I love the warmth this quite and romantic color ads to our Fall days:) So the other day before heading to a meeting, I dug into my closet, and found my long forgotten (new, never worn) Bimba & Lola pale pink blazer that I got last in one of my Barcelona trips! Paired it with my white chucks, Maje blue denim trousers, a striped blouse, my beloved Amazona Loewe bag, and my new Stella McCartney sunnies!

Cuantas de vosotras estaĂ­s al tanto de que este otoño el rosa es el nuevo negro? Por lo menos en cuanto a abrigos, chaquetas y jerseys, me imagino que habĂ©is visto mĂĄs de una imagen con abrigos rosas, para este Otoño/Invierno! Normalmente no soy la primera en caer vĂ­ctima de las nuevas tendencias, tengo que admitir que esta me encanta! Este color cĂĄlido y romĂĄntico añade un toque de color sĂștil para estos dĂ­as frios que nos tocan
 Espero que os guste este look!

Easy Like A Sunday Morning

This Sunday I stared blankly at my closet not knowing what to wear, another one of those “I don’t have anything to wear” which I am sure you all are more than familiar with, and couldn’t be far from the truth, as my closet has more than enough clothes! While staring at my abundance of clothing, I got this Sunday melancholy feeling, remember when you are in school, and Sundays are the most dreaded days? The weekend is over, and another school week is ahead
 The only thing that would cheer me up was without a doubt MUSIC, and I remembered that for those dreaded Sundays, I would play as loud as possible Faith No more’s “Easy Like A Sunday Morning”! So that’s exactly what I did, I turned up the volume, and it just clicked, what’s easy? Black and White of course! I paired my new leather shorts, with a buttoned up white shirt, my Stella McCartney ankle boots, and my Zara bag, and stepped out the door to meet my hubby for some quality time!

Este pasado domingo me plante en frente de mi armario buscando y rebuscando lo que me iba a poner! Y tuve uno de mis momentos de “No tengo nada para ponerme” que me imagino muchas de vosotras tenĂ©is habitualmente (para no ser la Ășnica)! Y me entro esa melancolia de la infancia, cuando los domingos eran el Ășltimo dĂ­a del fin de semana, y al dĂ­a siguiente era la vuelta al cole, como odiaba los domingos! Lo Ășnico que me tranquilizaba era mi Musica, asĂ­ que ponĂ­a a tope la canciĂłn de Faith No More, “Easy like a Sunday morning” y empezaba a soñar de cuando sea mayor
 Y eso es lo que hice ayer,  escuchando la canciĂłn de repente se me aclararon las ideas y que es mas “Easy” que un look blanco y negro? Mis nuevos shorts de cuero, con mi blusa blanca, mis botines de Stella McCartney, y mi nuevo bolso de Zara, y lista para pasar la tarde con mi marido:)!
