Outfit Of The day : Cut out and the Caftan

I finally got my hands on this dress from Forever21, that I had been crushing on, since we featured it in one of our Weekly Finds Post. Its is the perfect plum tone and has a great fit, but be ware, it runs a size smaller than what I usually wear. I´m obsessed with the little cut out it has on the waist, and the cool way they mad the straps go from center front to the back. To give the outfit a cool bohemian feel and a little dimension I added an ethnic print caftan also from Forever21 , which I could not resist to buy.







As you might know by now, I love to buy pieces that I can take from day to night easily, because I believe in multifunctional wardrobes, specially when like me you are not a size 6 and plus size clothes are usually more expensive. Caftans are a must have piece for summertime, you can wear them over your bathing suit at the beach or like I wore it today, paired with a skater dress and a pair of booties fom Torrid. I finished off the look with vintage brocade hoop earings and a pair of Bottega Veneta round cat eye sunnies. However you choose to Rock this look always remember  to pick pieces that complement your figure.

Until Next time!!

Monday Mix : stripes, dots and metallics. Oh My!

Let's begin this week with a little mix of textures,. It's a fun way to pump up your Monday meetings and repel the Monday blues (or at least look like you are repelling it) This skater dress is perfect on every body type and black and white stripes are everywhere this season. Mix the stripes with a ethnic inspired scrappy sandal and pull the look together with a great bag in a solid bright complementary color. And of coarse, don't forget a cool pair of cateye sunniest with metallic details. Who says you have to do the matchy matchy thing to be a powerful business woman? Not us!

Summer blocking

The color block trend is here to stay and what better time to put it into practice than these transitional spring/winter to summer days. Mix bold solid colors for a tropical feel. Tangerine is one of our top five colors for this summer and it is flattering on almost all skin types. Give it a try,  Who knows, maybe you'll get a little early summer loving situation going.

Outfit of the day : Neon Loving

<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12171755/?claim=cnb6ptew369">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

 A few months ago,  I found this amazing neon coral dress, in a neoprene like fabric, on one of my many shopping trips to Forever 21. I had it in my closet for a while,  because even though I loved it, I had lightened may hair, and some of the pieces I had looked a little off, with my new Rose Gold Hair color. So against all odds I decided to do this OOTD (outfit of the day) and I love the Finished product.

For this look I decided to pair it with one of my favorite oversize denim jackets, also from  Forever 21It gives the outfit a little texture, plus I love to wear layers with dresses ! It's a cool way to dress them down, without the outfit looking too simple.

To finish off the look, I added a pair of wedge sneakers, with leopard print details,also from Forever 21 my beloved Céline sunnies, and heart shaped gold hoop earrings. 

Like we always say in our blog, accessorizing the right way will take your outfits to the next level. Always remember to look for statement pieces or pieces that speak for themselves, and represent your style. This summer will be all about bold colors and metallic, so I think its time to get into the groove and start rocking this trend, even if you live where it is still 35 degrees.

until next time!

Monday Mix: I dream of Friday

It's Monday again, but there is no better motivation to get through than thinking about what your going to wear for Friday after work happy hour. And if you want to start the week with energy, why don't you rock your Friday outfit today. We wanted to start this week with color, so we created this blazer and skirt combination. Who says you have to be all matcy- matchy  to look professional? Office attire doesn't,have to be boring.  Digital prints are super trendy right now and they are a great option for work wear. Pair them with a solid color blazer and a white Cami or basic blouse, to play down the eclectic print, without overpowering the outfit.  For a final touch add some metallic accessories, preferably in gold tones  and take your work wear to the next level.

Monday Mix : beach wedding edition

It's all about the white and blue florals. The monochrome print allows you to look fresh and elegant. Add some pops of colors with vintage inspired accessories and a bold lip. Break the rules and get a neon mani pedi.  To tie everything together pull your hair up, in a braided bun, or a sleek ballerina bun, it will look great even when humidity attacks and tries to sabotage the evening.
