Details of the look: SheIn black fringe sweatshirt, Spanx leggings, Nike shoes, Prada bag, Saint Laurent sunglasses
Who isn’t a fan of chic looks that don’t break the bank? I know I am! Don’t get me wrong every once in a while I do love to indulge in an expensive bag or shoe, one that has been carefully designed and produced. But my closet is still full of (mostly) Zara pieces, Topshop or H&M, which I am sure most of you can relate in one way or another. SheIn was a shop I had heard of, seen countless of Pins on Pinterest, and seen many bloggers wearing, but I never really made the jump to buy anything from them, because let’s be honest we are all animals of habit. So when they reached out to me for a collaboration, I said “SI por favor”, and good thing I did so. As you can see in my previous post, I am wearing their trench coat, and it is Perfection, so is this fringe sweatshirt I am wearing right here. Quality/price speaking, it is a match made in heaven!
Like always when I await garments from brands or online shops I have never shopped from, I am always worried about the fit or the cut, will it look cheap, do I need a Small or a Medium? I was so pleasantly surprised, and instantly in love with their pieces, this sweatshirt instantly brings chic and fun to a casual everyday look, I have worn it way too many times (I am a mom don’t judge, some days there is no time to plan outfits, just work with what you got:) and it looks brand new after washing it it is still as black as the first time I got it.
I hope you enjoy this look, and I totally recommend some shopping time on SheIn.com, especially with Valentine’s Day coming up there are some cute pieces you shouldn’t miss out on! Stay tuned this week for my next Discover Barcelona post…
What Im wearing, Madewell sweater, Asos denim, Native Shoes Apolo, Saint Lauren bag
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.
Wearing, Stella McCartney clutch, Zara Top, Zara black jeans similar here, YSL heeled sandals.
New York Fashion week is just as you imagine it to be, fast paced, full of energy, and loads of inspiration from both catwalks and street style! It was definitely an awakening trip, as I haven’t been able to attend the past two seasons due to my pregnancy and having my babygirl in Barcelona. We came back from Barcelona last Tuesday night and took the train to New York City, and in the past two weeks I have been to Ibiza, Barcelona, DC and New York City! And arriving to NYC after all these calm cities, and just going right into Fashion Week shows, and events was amazingly refreshing. To make it even more special Jeff and Shirel came with me, so it was a fun family trip, and Shirel’s first time in the Big Apple, which made this trip extra special. At the same time I had to pack differently this time, so I packed less for myself and more for her, and the garments I picked were very basic yet chic enough for the shows and events I attended. Here is one of the looks I wore to attend the shows, and it sets a tone for the look I will be wearing most of the time this fall, basic/casual with a little chic to it.
Today it hit me, next Saturday it’s Valentine’s Day! Yes I know you were all more aware of it, since we are being reminded of it every day everywhere we look, and I have been aware that it was almost February 14th, but with my baby girl I really forget to look at the date, and keep up with the days! My clock and time just runs around her feeding, changing and napping times (in between I manage to squeeze baby yoga time, baby music class, and of course story time;). But yes today I realised I need to find the right gift for Jeff, and I am sure just like me many of you need to find a gift for the man in your life! Here are some of my favourite selections for him, and throughout the week I will keep posting ideas and Pinning ideas on my Be My Valentine board!
