Something Borrowed

The best part about having your sisters grow up, is the expansion of your own wardrobe. Lucky for me, at the moment my baby sis and I can share pretty much all of our clothes and shoes, not only that, but she has inherited a keen sense of style (obviously learnt from the best! ha!). You can actually follow her on her shared Instagram feed (@lifethrghlenses). Now, she may hate me for posting this cute dress on my blog, before letting her post it on her IG account, but, babe, if you are reading this, what's mine is yours and vice versa.  xA Uno de los mejores beneficios de que tus hermanas crezcan es la multiplicación de tu armario. Este año, por...

That’s a Wrap!

On my latest trip to London, I didn't have much time for shopping -or budget, for that matter-, so I decided to spend the little time and money I had, wisely. Topshop is definitely one of my go to English brands, and within Topshop's lines, their Boutique collection has got to be one of my favourites! I love its chic, minimalistic sense of style, and its good quality. Although the tags feel a bit pricey at times, its fashion driven designs make it worth the investment. This navy skirt, was the result of a long and, apparently, fruitless hunt for one. Since the wrap skirt trend hit the runways, I fell for it, and after looking for the perfect one for...

Sequins & Roses

Hi guys! I am very much into embellished anything, lately. These jeans are perfect for a casual day, they make it easy to spice up any simple look. I wore this look not too long ago, pairing two pieces that blended seamlessly thanks to their don't care attitude. The floor grazing cardigan (which many have christened as a Harry Potter cloak) added a touch of drama, and enveloped the look with a special allure. x A ¡Hola a todos! Últimamente me he dejado seducir por los bordados. Desde el momento en el que me puse estos jeans, supe que eran ideales para dar vida a un look otrora aburrido.  Este conjunto que usé hace unos cuantos días, era una combinación más que lógica....

Button Ups

_MG_2026

You do not need to be super observant to have noticed that A-line button ups is the way to go about skirts these days. They are cool, effortlessly chic, and play well with absolutely anything! And as it happens, they are also one of my favourite trends of the season. If we talk materials, I would say, opt for suedes or denims. And lengths? Although the queens of street-style have showcased them in a parade of lengths, I will always vow for minis!

The Knot

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.

A Cream Jacket

_MG_1918
I tend to swindle between ladylike looks and understated casual ones. A few weeks ago I found this beautiful Chanel-esque jacket (sorry for so blatantly making up my own terms), which was desperately calling for a feminine combination. Button-up skirts, enjoying center stage for the time being, seemed  like a more than fair partner to the printed outer piece. Funny enough, it was not until I wore the look that I realized how at ease I felt with every garment on its own (the blue top that I wore had that inevitable sensuality that a lose shirt gives to women… LOVE, LOVE, LOVE) which made the outfit even better.
