Happy Hanukkah

Black and White

 

Happy Hanukkah & Hag Sameah everyone! This is my favorite holiday, I remember being a little girl and every year waiting for our Hanukkah school concert, and my mom would knit me a new sweater, make the most amazing Sufganyiot (Israeli doughnuts), and we would light the candles all together… This year I got the new gold iPhone (my hubby surprised me) so it is definitely looking to be a brighter year, with better Instagram pics;)! The Holidays just keep on coming! But the weather could not be any more hideous than what it is, every morning I wake up with crazier hair due to this unstoppable rain! How can I possibly take photos of any of my looks to show you all what Im wearing these days? So here is a quick casual, black, white and red accent look that I LOVE wearing, not on rainy days obviously but when the weather permits;)

Feliz Januka! Aqui teneis un look casual y simple, para un look chic! Estos días han sido bastante complicados, no he podido sacar fotos de mis looks, porque no para de llover y con el frio que hace es bastante imposible! Aun no me he acostumbrado al frio de DC, es insoportable, nada que ver con el frio de Barcelona;) Pero en cuanto pare de llover, saldré a luchar contra el frío para enseñaros nuevas piezas de invierno que tengo en el armario;) Asi que estad al tanto…

Keeping warm…

Jennifer Chun coat

edit12Every year I have the same dilemma, finding a warmer coat than the one from last years! This year I wanted to find the right one, not only for the city but also for my ski trip (early 2014), it had to be warm, warm, very warm, but yet something that screamed cool;) After looking persistently online, in stores, magazines, (you know the drill), I finally found this Jennifer Chun Khaki parka, and knew I had to have it. Now I can brave the cold!

Cada año es la misma historia, siempre quiero encontrar un abrigo que abriga más del que me compre el año anterior! Y en esta ciudad (Washington DC) cada año hace más frío! Este año tenia que encontrar un abrigo para la ciudad, y para nuestro viajecito a las montañas a principios del 2014! Así que me puse manos a la obra, buscando online, en tiendas, revistas, un abrigo que me llamara la atención para ese look único! Finalmente cuando vi este Jennifer Chun supe que era el que estaba buscando todo este tiempo. Ahora a luchar contra el frío…

“Barcelona tiene un color Especial”

Barcelona Style

Not one day goes by that I don’t miss my querida Barcelona, wishing I could walk around Paseo de Gracia, admiring the buildings that never seize to amaze me, stopping in one too many cafes for a cortado, or simply taking a walk around Ciutadella. I am sure that many of you who live far away from home can relate with that feeling, those little things that we grew so accustomed to and took for granted, are now the big things that are missing in our every day lives when living far away from our city. And it goes without saying that these feelings grow even more when the Holidays are just around the corner! This colored look was shot in one my last visit’s to Barcelona, and they fit to perfection with the city’s colors, as well as to the Holiday’s coming our way:) This year Hanukkah falls the same night as Thanksgiving, making it all even more so special, a combination of miracles and being thankful, they fit together like this perfect color combination. Hope this total Maje look, with my Joanna Maxham handbag, will inspire your Holiday look…

Ahora que se acercan las fiestas, no pasa ni un día que no echo de menos a mi querida Barcelona, a mi familia y amigos! Echo de menos pasear por las calles de la ciudad, admirar su arquitectura, tomarme un cortado bien echo, y mucho más! Me imagino que sois muchos de vosotr@s que estáis lejos de casa, y podéis entenderme:) Este look fue fotografiado en uno de mis últimos viajes a Barcelona, y para mí tiene esos perfectos colores de Barcelona, y a la vez colores que encajan a la perfección con las fiestas! Espero que os guste este look total de Maje, y clutch de Joanna Maxham

Fresh. Light. Effortlessly chic.

Wai Ming Ilana top This look was totally and completely inspired by Parisian style, that effortless chic that makes us all be in awe of Parisian women and their style! For those of you who know me, you will know that Paris is one of my favorite cities, growing up in Antwerp spending many a summers getting on the train and traveling to Paris with my family created a special bond with the city. So when I met the designer behind Wai Ming, Emily in my visit to St.Louis and she told me she had lived in Paris and was inspired by it’s designers and Parisian style, it was (needless to say) an instant connection (amongst other similar interests:). Emily designs her Wai Ming pieces with these elements in mind Fresh, Light, and Effortlessly chic, and I say AMEN to that! Her collection absolutely wowed me and of course I had to get my hands on a few of them;) So here is my way of bringing Paris to DC:) A Sunday brunch at french bistro Le Diplomate, wearing my Wai Ming Ilana top, sipping a café au lait and reading my ” Paris Street Style” book, and of course all of this with the love of my life! Wai Ming Ilana top Wai Ming Ilana top Wai Ming Ilana top Este look es un look totalmente inspirado por el estilo “effortless” Parisino! Con mi Ilana top de Wai Ming, una de mis marcas preferidas y mi diseñadora preferida Emily! Su colección inspira y respira la simplicidad y la sofisticación, y eso es lo que a mí me encanta! Y para sentirme un poco más “Parisienne”, me fuí a comer a Le Diplomate, con mi libro de “Paris Street Style”, mi café au lait, y mi amor!

Walk the Line…

Black leather pants & white top

One day you will find me in full on winter outfits, and the next you might see me wearing just this:) Because DC is just the right amount of unexpected ( and has the craziest weather), never knowing if I will wake up to a Wintery cold day or a warm Fall day… And what better garment to keep you warm yet cool than these relaxed faux leather trousers by Blank NYC! I have been looking for the perfect ones for the past year, and could not find the ones that fit me right (not easy to find the right fir when you have wide hips & a tiny waist)! I cannot wait to wear them and pair them with all my winter pieces, but for now I am wearing it with just another one of my new findings, this Erika Schrieber top, and my “oldies” (but goodies) Zara heels…
