WIWW: The Mili Green Dress

Good morning, my darlings!

Two more days and it´s officially fall/autumn on this side of the world. The weather´s been quite nippy these days although we still have a few sunny days in a week so it isn´t  bad. Here´s a transitional look that I suggest during those warm days:

A shirt dress with an uneven hemline is the perfect in-between seasonal clothing for those sunny days in fall/autumn. This dress works two ways: worn on it´s on or used as a cover-up over pants/pants and top, et voila, outfit complete! You can always put on a cardigan over it when the temperature drops later in the afternoon. ;)

Moreover, the military green color is a basic fall/autumn color and so you´re on `fleek´ with this dress.😉😊 I bought this dress in July but can´t seem to find it any more in the Zara website  but here are some options: 1st is this and 2nd is this in mustard and gray color.

Monday Remix: Matchy-Matchy in Nude

Good morning, everyone!

So how´s the weekend? Mine´s been a cold one but hey, we´ve had the best summer in years and so I´m not complaining.  Anyway, here´s a typical outfit that I wear when the temp drops:

Although, the trend nowadays is about lots of ruffles, cold shouders and bell sleeves, I still opt for my good old cashmere sweater. You can never go wrong with a cashmere sweater because it´s a basic, a keeper and doesn´t go out of trend anytime! Right? Right.

I´ve noticed that I´m gravitating towards solid colors this year, maybe it´s the age or the lifestyle or both but I´m okay with it because they´re easy to mix and match.

Flyday Friday: Nájera

Good morning, my luvs!

Finally, after like a gazillion promises here´s a short travel post for today to share with you. :)

Aside from the world famous paella, Spain´s gastronomy wouldn´t be complete without it´s wines. In fact, one of the most sought after region for wine connaisseurs in the world is the La Rioja region.These pics were taken sometime in September(last year, eeep!) when the harvest season began. We visited a touristy town called Nájera in La Rioja. Here´s what I wore:

2016-09-17 19.02.01
striped buttondown, shoes and bag- Massimo Dutti, pants- Mango, twill jacket- Zara
A visit to one of La Rioja´s pueblos, isn´t complete without stopping along the roadside to look at the grapes and a sneaky pic of the ripened grapes ready for harvesting. It´s quite tempting to plop a few on my mouth but they´re strict in here so photos only please and no grape tasting!

Do you see that red cliff on the photo? This place was once used as a hiding place during the Moor invasion and wine cellar by the people a long time ago. In fact, the old houses here were constructed by excavating through the rocks and that´s how the town was built. Nájera came from the Arabic word ¨Naxara¨ meaning ¨built between the rocks¨.

I´m ending this post with a costumary door photo of the Church of the Holy Cross( Sta. Cruz). You know me and doors, we bond really well especially if the church is almost 400 years old!

I hope you enjoyed this short post. It´s been in my draft folder since last year and it´s about time to finally launch it since I might be going back to Najera tomorrow for it´s 12th Puncho(Tapa) Contest which has been going on for a few days now. If you happen to visit La Rioja don´t forget to visit this place, it´s worth it!

Til the next post. :)

Hugs,

Che

WIWW: The Wrap Around Skirt

Heeeeeyyyy!

How are you? I know it´s been like almost three months(!!!) since my last post, it´s been a while isn´t it? No apologies here because I know you´ll be hearing the same reason again and again --- real life took over blogger life, big time, hehe.

Anyway, summer´s in full swing while the sales are about to end. It´s a good thing that I was able to snatch this top and skirt up before they´re finally sold out. They´re so comfy, mind you!

c9bab115-a90b-46c8-af41-cb055b675c36


My style´s gone super minimalist these days and with this heat, a T-shirt, a wrap around skirt which is becoming one of my favorite sale find and some leather slides( a la Birkenstock) combo is my go to uniform almost every day. The less clothes we put on, the better it is, right?  Never mind that I look like a stump in these slides but they´re sooo light.  Just don´t forget the sunglasses and sunblock and we´re good to go and conquer the sun!

top- Zara, skirt- Stradivarius, sunglasses- Massimo Dutti, bag- Bimba&Lola, sandals- local store

So what´s your go to combination this season? Love to hear from you!

WIWW: Color Blocking in Dusty Rose and Blue

Good morning, everyone!

How´s your week so far? So here I am again after a month of not posting anything, hahaha! Anyway, with all the shades of pink that has been trending this spring, I couldn´t help but pick a few tops in my favorite shade, dusty rose and pair it with a dark blue culottes:

ab6c3b2c-a1cf-4d71-8a7e-14ca85736d83

Pardon the grumpy face, we took these pics in a flash (pun intended) at someone´s garage door and so it was a flurry of clicks and we´re gone before  the owner can even say ¨hello and ask ¨whatchudoin on my garage door ¨. 😅

05300388-e182-46d7-ba3d-8b56c43c7e8f

I also upgraded my bag collection with a faux snakeskin printed crossbody bag in yep, pink(and red), hehehe. Mango is killing it in the bag department lately. This season there are a lot of really cute bags with affordable prices and I was able to buy a few without breaking the bank nor waiting for the sales season. That´s great isn´t it? ;)

The culottes are from Primark´s last winter sale. Although I´m loving their length, it´s a little bit big on me and so I´m giving this to my Mom. I´m sure she would like this style because it looks like a skirt but it´s a pair of pants. It´s sooo comfy, it´s too bad it´s big on me!

7b860b92-3421-40ac-b0aa-8aef9fe8797f
top- Stradivarius, culottes- Primark, crossbody bag- Mango, shoes- Zara
So, are you crazy for pink too? Enjoy the mid week! :)

Hugs,

Monday Remix: Stripes and Cut-offs

Hello, hellooo!

18a42780-9163-458f-a467-d5b1d4211ae7

Today, I´ve decided to put on some metallic stripes instead of the pink overloaded that has taken over everyone´s closet this season. Oh and I did cave in and bought a pink top ( just one beacause  I already have a growing collection from several years of ¨curating¨ the color ) and you´ll be seeing it soon. But for now, here are some stripes to break the monotone that´s pink that you´re seeing in everyone´s blog:

Monday Remix All Blue and Fuchshia

Good morning, my darlings!

Finally, it´s spring, yay! Have you done your spring cleaning? ;)

2017-02-16 15.14.25

I have but then last weekend, the temperatures dropped to winter-y levels and so I´m back to my thick puffer jacket again. What´s new? This is one of those times of the year where the weather turns bright and summery to cold---- freezing cold in like... a day? Anyway, on those days where it´s sunny, I make do with a thick sweater/jumper like this one I´m wearing:

2017-02-16 15.14.342017-02-16 15.14.20

It´s quite thick and warm still ( no need to put on a jacket with it) and colored blue which pairs well with my dark indigo and black jeans too. Oh and speaking of colors and trends here´s a new addition to my clutch collection, a fuschia colored yummy clutch from Massimo Dutti:

2017-02-16 15.14.56

I got this from the latest winter sales. Since I already have a lot of pink stuff in my closet, I thought this lovely leather clutch would match perfectly with my spring and summer outfits which could either be in chambray, white or black because I´m boring like that. 😄

sweater- Stradivarius, jeans- H&M, shoes- Zara, clutch- Massimo Dutti

So what colors are you buying lately for spring? Have a lovely week, y´all! :)
