2016 is in a few days, I still can’t believe it! Time does fly as they say, I can’t believe my babygirl Shirel is 15 months,  this September I will be married 5 years, and I will be 33 and my hubby will turn 35, and I still have a bucket list from before I was supposed to turn 30! Ok you can imagine where my mind is running off to, I will stop it right here, otherwise there will be no end to the madness and anxiety that comes with not having enough time and not being where we thought we would be, right? But I do know that I am blessed with an amazing family, with fantastic friends, the ability to love life, travel and discover new places, health and love, and slowly every year things will get better because I will work to be a better me and in achieving my dreams. For now ley’s go back to the simpler things in life and worry about “what am I wearing for NYE”? kinda questions, so here I share with you one of my looks, wearing this Balmain H&M dress, fax fur coat, over the knee boots, and Saint Laurent bag. Hope you love it as much as I do, Besos from Barcelona. NYE Look

Three shades of Black

NYE Look
The Holidays are just a few days away, and time is flying by like a distant memory, and between slowly settling back to Barcelona, taking Shirel every day to daycare and hanging out with her till she gets used it, working (as much as I can considering there isn´t enough time in one day), somewhat trying to find time to work out, and of course making a list of my New Year resolution, I am trying to share some of my fave Holiday and NYE looks with you all! (I do apologize for the long sentence).
So as you are all more than aware the Balmain for H&M dropped last month, and craziness took place worldwide, I on the other hand was in DC too busy with my toddler to even remember the date (priorities do change when you have a little one), but luckily I have sister in laws here in Barcelona who thought of me, and got a few amazing pieces from the collection! So voila here is one of my fave dresses that I think fits this time of the year with perfection. I styled it with over the knee boots, and a classic small Saint Laurent bag, I let my hair loose because that´s what I do. Hope you all like it…

NIRVANA

Nirvana lookNirvana lookWhat Im wearing, total look Zadig & Voltaire, White fur coat, Embellished shoulder bag, Nirvana T-Shirt, Trousers, Ankle boots.

These pics were taken a few weeks ago (by my hubby) in DC, when I partnered with Zadig & Voltaire‘s boutique, right in the heart of the city at CitycenterDC! As you saw in my previous posts, they let me pick out my favorite pieces and style them for all of you to see how I would put them together with my very own touch. This look felt so right, with the winter white, and the red NIRVANA, just so perfect and cozy for these Holidays, right? There is something so serene and comforting about white in every season of the year, but even more so when it is cold and snowing outside. At first I thought of picking out some looks filled with glitter, gold, dresses oh so typical and fun for the holidays, but then I thought about it honestly and I am a mother of a 1 year old toddler, and I am traveling around with her non stop (as a matter of fact I am writing right now from my home in Barcelona, and stay tuned for my post on how to travel transatlantic flights with a toddler), I will probably not go to too many parties this year since my bed time is around 10pm these days, and I still don’t know what my NYE plans are, so these looks are for all of you who are on the same boat as me and LOVING it! So for now I say cheers to the cozy and edgy looks we can rock beautifully these holidays, like this Zadig & Voltaire one.

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’…

Zadig & Voltaire

Holiday StyleLook by Zadig & Voltaire, V neck Nosfa sweater, Alabama Bords hat, Pomelo pants, XS Candide Bag, Sneakers 

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! Holiday styleHoliday styleHoliday styleHoliday styleHoliday styleHoliday LookHoliday styleHoliday style
