Bare Shoulders

  By now, I have lost count on the amount of times that I have proclaimed our shoulders to be the hottest couple of the moment! Believe me when I say that they are, at the same time, your best allies, and your sharpest weapon to conquer the streets. From a girl who has tried on as many possible variations of the off-the-shoulder trend to you, the one that I find more comfortable is when the sleeves come "detached" from the main part of the top, such as the one I'm wearing on this post; that way the sleeves won't be rolling up at your every move.  Kisses, A Ya perdí la cuenta de la cantidad de veces que he proclamado que nuestros hombros son la pareja más...

Italian Feel

_MG_2984

Hi guys! I loved the easiness of this look: a bare shoulder, a frayed hem, a monochrome palette. It is my perfect combination for a casual work day. Plus my feet appreciate the flat, classic Audrey Hepburn style pumps. I hope you guys like it!

PS: I was so lucky to step into the chic boutique hotel of Il Bongustaio. This petite, 5 room, hotel is a certain oasis in the middle of the city. It transported  me to an Italian villa, with its beautiful gardens, filled with cascading bougainvilleas; its dome shaped hallways, and its marbled floors. A soothing place, that certainly goes well with the italian cuisine served at the, open to all public, next door restaurant.

Greens & Yellows

_MG_3138

Hi everyone! Last weekend I took a little escapade to the beach. The palms, the sun and the the refreshing sparklings were the perfect company for a short getaway. It all reminded me of this shoot I did, not too long ago. The greens, harmoniously, contrasting with the dashes of yellow and red of the backpack and romper; and the light blue of the shirt works well for an easy cover up.

Inside Stars

_MG_3049

Hi you guys! I hope you are doing all well! I’ve been pretty busy these past days, working on the styling of an ad campaign, but I still wanted to share with you a casual look I wore not too long ago. I was in the mood for mixing it up, and so I paired a star print top, with a checked shirt. I decided it was best to keep the look on the cool tones, and I was careful not to pair it with your typical red & navy combo, which would have definitely make me look like the American flag. I hope you guys like it! 

Wishing you a blasting weekend!

Luminaire

_MG_7704

I’ve already mentioned before my love for interior design. There’s something about creating warm and inviting ambiances that sooth you after a long work day. Hence, when I step in a place that offers me an eye-catching piece of decoration, I always appreciate it. My visits to “Hecho en Casa”, a small space devoted to showcasing everything from clothes to furniture, strictly designed and made in El Salvador, are always a chance to find interesting pieces. I came by a few weeks ago and loved the atypical luminaire display on their outside balcony. I hope you find it as inspiring as I did!

Sending you a spark of love!

Quick Fix

_MG_6104
Hi everyone! I trust your week is going well!
I have been told many, many times how hard it is to give me a gift. A gift that I will like and cherish. Well, my godmother sure hit the sweet spot when she bought this dress for me! The only reason why I haven’t worn it that much is because it is actually a bit big on me, and I just haven’t come around to tailoring it. However, I like it so much that I have used it a couple of times already. It struck me that wearing a t-shirt or body underneath would be a great solution to my current fitting problem. Add a waist belt to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a pretty cool ensemble. I encourage you all to get a tad creative when fixing these sorts of inconveniences. You never know what good look you can end up with!

Have a lovely weekend!

Flare!

_MG_4539
Through the years, I have come to understand how important it is to know yourself, not only emotionally but in each and every way. It is important to know what color suits you, what shape is more flattering on you, what trends you can and should try. This is the way you can guarantee that your look will always stay on point. In this sense, correct me if I am wrong, but I find that A-line mini skirts are one of my fortes. Albeit it being very simple, there are certain details that make this look work: the flared sleeves, the snake print sling backs, the red nails, the denim… It is all about working with the simplicity of it. 

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead!

Milkshake & Fries

Hi guys! To be completely honest, I am not used to wearing power suits. I know, right?! A bit shocking… The thing is there is something imposing about power suits, which is really the same reason they give off a strong look. A woman that knows how to wear one is also a woman who is confident, and who is not afraid of being the center of attention. She is a woman that conveys a fearless personality, which is sexy AF! So yes, they are a tremendous statement to wear, and if you dare to do it, believe me, it will be a transforming experience. I wore this black and white printed suit a few weeks ago. Needless to say, it was a total hit! The dashes of red on the earrings, the bag and the lips were the right choice to pull the look together. I hope you guys like it!

Oh!…A small tip: if you don’t feel like risking it that much with print, try a more demure version of the power suit in a neutral solid colour.

Have a great day and dare to suit up!

The Knot

_MG_2078

If there is one thing I love about these pictures is the setting. My country has so many beautiful places that I would love to share with all of you, however sometimes, because of the situation we are currently living in, that is not possible. I try to educate my eye to discover beauty wherever I go. It is not always an easy task, as we are so prone to criticize, and judge; but it is always a healthy one. This has made me look at my surroundings in a totally different way. When I take in the places, the people, and the things that encircle me, I try to consider much more than what meets the eye, because, many times, one’s first impressions may not be as accurate as we might think.
