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)
There are endless unique spots in DC, and definitely loads to see and learn in this cultured city, but I have always felt like resides Georgetown there was a need for a downtown shopping area with high end boutiques, and City Center has definitely added this to the city! For me it is also perfect, as it is walking distance from my place (40 minutes mas o menos) which is fantastic, I get a little cardio and (window) shopping. Besides shops such as Louis Vuitton, Hermes, or Zadig & Voltaire, there are also cute coffee spots like Dolcezza and Rare Sweets, and amazing restaurants such as Fig & Olive or La Centrolina. Soon Dior and Gucci will be opening their doors, and the absolutely delicious Momofoku and Milk, CANT WAIT! So now you know where to find me, sipping on coffee, eating some sweets while taking a break from serious shopping.
This month was full of birthdays, starting with my babygirl’s first birthday, and my hobby’s 34th the day after! And every year, I struggle to find him a gift that will rock his world, he is very picky especially when it comes to his own style, and well honestly I still haven’t found him that perfect gift, but I’d like to think that the surprise trip I planned to Ibiza was also his birthday gift! So while researching online, I found this beautiful Louis Monet Memoris watch, which is the first chronograph watch in history. Unfortunately it isn’t a watch I can afford (not yet, one has got to keep dreaming), but knowing him and how he loves watches and their complex designs, I knew he would absolutely fall in love with, and I was right as I showed him videos and photos of the watch, he fell head over heels with it, and so it might not be his 34h birthday gift but I am keeping it in the back of my head as possibly a gift for one his near future birthdays (maybe on his 40th ?). This unique and timeless watch truly stands out and says I love you in so many ways, and I thought it only appropriate to share it with all of you in case one of your loved ones birthday is coming up, or an anniversary, the holidays are just around the corner, with the hopes that this will help you find and pick that perfect gift for him.
It’s that perfect time of the year, not too hot not too cold, and I love the freedom of not having to wear coats, or layers! Which is why I thought this look would be perfect for a casual yet sexy look for a lunch date with my hubby. I found these suede fringe shorts on Lulu’s.com, and had to have them, I love the fringe trend but always have difficulty finding that one garment that is subtle with the fringing, and I thought these shorts had just enough of a fringe touch. I am definitely slowly getting back on track with feeling in tune with my body again, and putting effort in my looks, and of course wearing heels while I carry my baby girl around, which might sound silly to some of you but is truly an amazing feeling, after your body has gone through such new changes both physicially and emotionally! Hope you enjoy this look as much as I do.
I am so excited to start this week with a beautiful Monday full of sunshine, and what feels like Spring (even if it is only a limited time, I will embarre it). This week is extra special, because I have teamed up with General Motors as one of their influencers, to drive around their Chevrolet Impala, and show you my favorite DC spots. Today I picked Georgetown, since I wanted to stroll around it’s beautiful streets, enjoy the sunshine, and shop around some of my favorite stores, such as Madewell (since we don’t have it in Spain, but I have just found out they recently started shipping internationally). Driving around all day with my hubby and babygirl, we absolutely fell in love with the car, it is such a smooth ride, really comfortable and spacious inside. At first I didn’t know what to expect, since I have never sat in a Chevrolet (I am from Europe after all), but I couldn’t be happier with this car, and am so excited to keep driving it for the week, with the hopes that the sun will be here to stay! For today’s occasion I chose my favorite basics for this fall, a Madewell basic tee, their super comfy pumps, skinny jeans, Stella McCartney crossbody bag, and Ray Bans of course!
