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! BesosRYBELOMASSIMO DUTTI DRESSRYBELORYBELOMASSIMO DUTTI DRESSMASSIMO DUTTI DRESSMASIVO DUTTI DRESS

Long Coat and Knee High Boots

I have been looking endlessly for these two pieces to complete my winter wardrobe, and I was so delighted to find them before flying to freezing DC. I cant tell you how much money I have invested in endless over the knee boots, but have always been dissapointed that after a few times of wearing them they suddenly dont hold on to the knee anymore and just fall! So this time I decided to invest a little more and bought myself these beautiful Giuseppe Zanotti ones, and they arent just beautiful these boots are so comfortable, which is exactly what I need when Im running after my toddler or walking around pushing her stroller and trying not to slip my coffee, you know the usual:) It has been a while since I have worn heels on a day to day basis, so you can imagine how much Im loving it. To complete this look, I found this gorgeous Zara faux suede long coat, which they also have it in a beautiful beige color! I hope you love this look as much as I do:) Besos!Long Coat & Knee High BootsLong Coat & Knee High BootsDetails

My round up of top biker jackets

Zara Biker Jacket

Wearing: Zara suede effect jacket, Stella McCartney bag, Converse white leather, black trousers and black top. Similar Biker jackets, H&M , Shopbop.com, ALL SAINTS, THE KOOPLES, Topshop (black), Topshop (green), Neiman Marcus, ASOS Missguided, ASOS Noisy May, REVOLVE Ganni.

The weather in Barcelona has been amazing (when isn’t it actually?) besides the rare two or three days of cold, we always have sunny days, and a little cooler evenings/nights. Therefore a biker jacket is a must in this city, but it is also a basic we should all have in our closets! I have my all time favorite Burberry one my hubby got me last year for our anniversary, but for this season I wanted a change so (after a lot of research) I got this beautiful brown suede effect jacket from Zara! But before finding this one I went of course on my usual online never ending search trying to find the right one, so I have decided to share the ones I found with you all! Zara Biker JacketZara Biker JacketZara Biker JacketZara Biker JacketZara Biker JacketZara Biker JacketZara Biker JacketZara Biker JacketZara Biker Jacket

I still remember the first H&M collaborations, such as Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney (some of my favorite designers), I lived in London at the time and madness arose everywhere! But this time for the Kenzo collaboration, in comparison with previous collaborations especially last year’s Balmain, there wasn’t chaos nor long crazy lines here in Barcelona. This year’s capsule collection was a more civilized scene than in previous years! Which is why I am glad I went in and snagged a few styles, like these two Tshirts. The one thing I will say is that the sizes for these are a bit big, there were only Small and Medium left no more XS by the time I got in, and the Small is more like a Medium. Here is how I styled a more casual day look with the White option, and the more evening look with the Black option. For the daily look I chose denim and my new white leather chucks, which are also a bit bigger in comparison to the canvas option, so I got a half a size smaller. For the evening look, I chose to pair it with these Zara flare pants, and my new Jimmy Choo velvet bordeaux platforms, which are so comfortable for the height that they have. PS those of you who follow me on Instagram were probably aware of my haircut, but for those who were not now you get to see it! It is a much needed change for my hair, and for my time management (taking care of long hair is time consuming when you have a toddler to care for:) I hope you like it!
