Who from the 90’s didn’t wear a bomber jacket and Doc Martins to school? I know I did, and I know I loved every minute and absolutely thought I was the coolest kid around! Which is why wearing this Alpha Industries bomber jacket makes me feel like that cool kid all over again, don’t you guys love that feeling when you wear a garment and it instantly takes you back in time, yet it’s a better version of you (and the garment of course). What makes it better is its fit, cut, and the fact that it is reversible and then voila you have a bright fluorescent orange bomber, perfect for that moment you feel a little more daring and edgy. (I am seriously thinking of getting it in olive green too). It is also inevitable not to pare this jacket with cute heels, and a pencil skirt like this Madewell one, it is the obvious way to instantly turn the whole look into a more feminine and sexy one. My husband loved that I wore this for our date night, and guess what? Now he wants to get the same jacket, it happens quite a lot we end buying the same sneakers, or jackets, and sometimes without even realizing it we will walk out of our door wearing the exact same thing! I love how that happens.
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.
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!
