Shifting Into Minimal Style

A few weeks back I was having a real conversation with you guys about how I wanted to change my wardrobe.

How To Style a Midi Skirt

In honor of the last weekend before Spring starts I have a style guide for you and it’s all about Midi Skirts! I used to not like these skirts at all, I found them really hard to style since the length is a little more on the conservative style I though there was no way to make them look stylish. But my love for them has been growing and now I’m obsessed with them.¬†So here you go… a style guide on how to wear Midi Skirts!

I decided to pick two different styles, one being a casual normal Midi Skirt in a really pretty burnt brick color and the other a more dressy one, with pleats and metallic texture! To show how both styles can be style for day and night!

I like throwing some white sneakers for al ultimate casual stylish look, honestly any top goes with it but I decided to go with this one since it was colder! This other version of a day look features a more edgy style, I paired the more dressy skirt with a band t-shirt (My go-to casual staple) and some boots. White sneakers could have definitely be a good match for this but I wanted to show more options.

¬†For the night version of this, some fancy boots and and off the shoulder top! I wouldn’t throw much prints or textures to this since the simplicity of two-tones¬†makes it look formal.¬†¬†Last but not least my ultimate favorite night time look. I used the same fancy boots from the previous night time look, a leather jacket and a simple white tee. I love the contrast of the leather with the metallic¬†and the pleats form the skirt! I think it’s a little bold but the t-shirt keeps it a little bit neutral and not too crazy.

 __________________________________________________________________________________________

En honor del ultimo fin de semana antes de que la primera empiece, hice una gu√≠a visual de como usar las Midi Skirts. (Estas son las faldas que llegan abajo de la rodilla) Les tengo que confesar que la verdad odiaba estas faldas por que ¬†pensaba que me hac√≠an ver como abuela y no pens√© que habr√≠a forma de hacerlas ver bonito pero eso es cosa del pasado. Ahora las amo y tengo una obsesi√≥n con ellas! Escog√≠ dos estilos diferentes, una normal lisa y otra con unos pliegues y un toque met√°lico para ense√Īarte como las dos pueden verse super lindas tanto como para el d√≠a y la noche!

¬†¬†Cualquier look se puede ver super a la moda y casual instant√°neamente con unos tenis blancos, siento que cualquier t-shirt le queda a este look casual.¬†¬†Con unas botas mas elegantes y alg√ļn top formal tu look se ve super adecuado para la noche. Personalmente yo usar√≠a una blusa con estampados o textura para que se vea un poco mas sofisticado.

  Para esta versión con la falda poquito mas elegante, use una t-shirt con estampado (las band t-shirts son mis favoritas para hacer un look casual instantáneo) y unas botas. Los tenis blancos también se verían hermosos.

¬†Por √ļltimo, my look favorito. Las mismas botas de el look anterior de noche, una chamarra de piel y una playera normal color blanco. Siento que el contraste de la piel y la textura y color de la falda son un poco intensos pero la playera mantiene todo un poco mas neutral.

DW Watch

For as long as I’ve been on Instagram I remember seeing posts about this really elegant, simple and aesthetically pleasing watch. It is the ultimate accessory to make you look put together and professional, plus its very stylish so extra points for that!

Daniel Wellington is probably one of the biggest brands on Instagram and I’m here to show you how pretty is the watch they let me pick! There is nothing quite like their watches and I’m sure we all have seen it around social media. Well let me tell you it’s totally worth the hype, I personally really love watches and I think I developed my love for them through my dad (he is a big watch collector). I learned from him that the best watches to own are the ones that are timeless, elegant and simple (and it’s very true, I bet if you buy a trendy watch you won’t use it two years from now and it was not worth spending all that money). I believe Daniel Wellington watches are truly one of a kind and they would make a great gift, their minimalistic style will definitely suit everyone!

FAVORITE OVERALL

 

Joanna Vargas has definitely been my favorite experience from February. I had the chance to get a facial at their location in LA and I am obsessed with their brand. The facial was so amazing, plus Asia Marie (the girl who did my facial) told me so much about my skin that I didn’t know and they gave me these face masks which has helped my skin so so much!

Joana Vargas fue definitivamente mi experiencia favorita de Febrero. Tuve la oportunidad de visitar su salon en LA y me encanta su marca. El facial que me hicieron estuvo increíble y la chava que me hizo el facial, Asia Marie, me dio muchos tips sobre como cuidar mi cara. Me regalaron estas mascarillas que he usado una vez por semana y hacen que mi piel se sienta y vea preciosa!

SKINCARE

 

 

1. Clarins HydraQuench Cream SPF 15 (get it here)

I was in the look for a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid that was gentle on my skin so the lady at Sephora recommended this, it’s been doing its job and my skin seems to like it.

Estaba buscando una crema para la cara que tuviera ácido hialurónico y encontré esta crema que me la recomendaron en Sephora. Me ha funcionado bastante bien y mi piel no ha tenido ninguna reacción a esta crema.

2. UMA Oils Ultimate Brightening Face Oil (get it here)

I was gifted¬†this mini sample from their line and I really like it, it’s 100% organic and natural. Its¬†helping with getting rid of any discolorations or texture issues on my skin.

Me regalaron esta version mini de su aceite y me gustó mucho. Es 100% orgánica y natural. Me ayuda mucho a hacer que mi piel tenga un tono parejo y también hace mi piel suave al parejo.

3. Mario Badescu Rosewater Facial Spray (get it here)

My favorite skincare item of the month. This rosewater face spray is all you will ever need for your skin in one bottle! It works as a primer, pore tightening, getting rid of redness, you name it!

Mi producto favorito de esta categoría. Esta agua de rosas en spray es todo lo que tu piel necesita en una botella. Lo puedes usar de muchas formas, prepara tu piel para el maquillaje, cierra los poros, quita lo rojo en tu piel, y mucho mas!

FOOD

 

I am trying to be a lot more healthier overall and I know the best way to do so is by making it a lifestyle not a “diet”. This month I’ve been trying to incorporate more vegan dishes into my everyday. I have significantly reduced the amount of meat, chicken and fish¬†I eat. I have completely quit two things: diary and eggs.

Estoy cambiando mis hábitos para que sean más saludables y se que la mejor estrategia es convertirlo en un estilo de vida y que no sea solo una dieta. Este mes he intentado incorporar mas platillos veganos en mi día a día. He reducido la cantidad de carne que como y deje de consumir por completo dos cosas: lactosa y huevos.

TREND

 

 

1. Same brand similar ones here

Accessories are definitely my favorite fashion piece of the month. I’ve been really into earrings (which I’ve never been before). I still keep my jewelry dainty like I’ve always had, but this time I’m layering them with some chokers of the same color.

Los accesorios han sido mis favoritos en el departamento de moda. Ultimamente me encantan los aretes largos (cosa que antes nunca me gust√≥). A√ļn as√≠ sigo usando piezas minimalistas, como siempre. Esta vez me fascina como se ven juntos unos aretes largos y delicados con chokers del mismo color ya sea plateado o dorado.

OOTW

The weather is starting to look a lot more promising in Los Angeles. Winter definitely hit us hard this year,¬†it’s been raining like never and I’m starting to forget the last time I saw a clear blue sky.¬†Last week we had a couple days where we were able to soak the sun just for a couple hours so I decided to take advantage.

–¬†Don’t forget that I always have the shopping links at the end of the post! –

This first outfit is very simple but I just wanted an excuse to wear a dress! I decided to go with a casual tshirt + slip dress combo. Some ankle boots and my favorite purse of the moment. I found this purse at¬†TJ Maxx last week, it’s from the brand Elaine Turner. I wasn’t able to find the exact same one online since its probably is from a past collection but I featured links for some similar ones. This slip dress is from H&M and I¬†found it at a thrift store called Buffalo Exchange (AKA mi favorite place) I know they have several locations across¬†the U.S. I really recommend checking it out, you might be living close to one and you didn’t know! The boots are from Forever21 and they were part of their fall line, but any Chelsea Boots will work!

The second outfit is definitely more casual but I featured my current favorite thrift find (also from Buffalo Exchange) It’s a vintage button up velvet shirt from DKNY! I decided to keep the “vintage” style and wore it with some mom jeans from Forever21 that I got last summer. A¬†red bandana tied around my neck for a pop of color and some loafer slip ons! Once again, I wore my favorite current purse, I really wasn’t kidding when I said I was obsessed, it really is gorgeous and I wear it everyday!

Since the shirt is a vintage piece I tried to feature some similar ones, I had a hard time finding button up velvet shirts but I found some affordable¬†alternatives for velvet tops that I would’ve totally worn with this outfit!

Floral Embroidery

I’ve been in the hunt for some rose embroidered jeans for the past two months and I finally scored the perfect pair!

Zara is having their anual sale, I’ve been such a fan of this event ever since I was living back in Mexico. There has never been a year where I pass on the amazing deals! After a whole winter break of non-stop looking for the perfect pair of these trendy jeans, I found them!

But this embroidered trend doesn’t have to stop here, I’ve seen tons of clothing items with them. It’s such a good way to have an accent piece in a sophisticated way.

Here are a couple that I have my eye on (shopping links are at the end of the post).

MY WINTER STYLE

Hey everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful winter break. I’m still feeling that post-Christmas blues but I’m happy to be back in Los Angeles. This winter break I was lucky to spend it in the south visiting my boyfriend’s family! I had so much fun and definitely wasn’t ready to leave just yet but we all gotta go back to reality at some point!

This online shop, Zaful, reached out to me earlier in December to offer some of their clothes so I’m very excited to share with you guys what I picked! Their clothes have such great quality and¬†kept me really warm in the cold southern winter!

(Check the links at the bottom of this post to buy the featured items!)

I’ve been wanting a nice quality suede jacket for the longest time but they all seem to be thin and I wanted something that would keep me warm. I though why not give this one from Zaful a chance and I’m so glad I did! It’s thicker than all the ones I’ve seen, definitely my new go-to jacket!

screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-2-20-11-pm

Another favorite that I picked from their website is this Leopard Faux Fur coat! I’ve had my eye on this one for a while but I wasn’t sure if I was going to use it enough to where it was worth to invest in one. So when Zaful contacted me, it only made sense to get it then! And you guysssss… IT’S MY FAVORITE COAT!

screen-shot-2017-01-06-at-2-13-47-pm

I’ve found that I actually use it a lot more than I thought I would. I wore it almost every day, it’s so warm and it feels like you’re wearing a blanket. Plus¬†doesn’t it look so stylish?¬†Everyday that I wear this, at least one person compliments this coat! This girl approached me in the bar asking where I got it from, the lady at the grocery store, even an old man told me it was a beautiful coat! (It’s also very affordable).
