Summer pastels

Pastels are perfectly transitioning into our summer wardrobe. Weather you wear them as an accent color  or mix and match them, they always bring some freshness and softness to an outfit.We have been seeing them everywhere, from Forever21, Zara and ASOS to BCBG, Marc Jacobs and Céline , which means there are many fashionable options for every size and budget.

 This is  perfect example for a beach or pool day outfit, featuring pastel pieces. To give it a more tropical feel try to mix in a floral that match the color way of the solid pieces you use for the outfit. You can NEVER go wrong with a high waist number, since it hides the problem areas that must girls thin or curvy, like to hide, and accentuates the areas we love to show. If you don´t feel comfortable wearing a two piece just find a one piece that meet the characteristics, a plain pastel colored one or a floral would be awesome too with this outfit. And if you are on the smaller side and afraid all that fabric will swallow you up, well you can wear a a smaller bottom, to show your petite figure.

Hope you have a blast this weekend!
until next time!

Ootd : minimal matchy-match

Tangerine is one of the go to colors for this season, and it's not as hard as it looks to combine with other colors. In this case we paired with a floral print pump, and pulled some of the royal blue in the shoe to match with the bag. This way you an play with the colors without looking like a rainbow . Alas you may have noticed by now , this silhouette is our go to , whenever we feel like going for the modern retro look.

One little tip for finding the right Skater or pleated skirt if you have a big bum, buy the size that looks better on the bum part and go get the waist tailored to your size, this will keep the pleads in shape in the back part and you wont feel like you have the biggest But in the world.

Have fun with colors this upcoming season, and remember to always look or styles that are cut to flatter your figure, this will make you want to  keep breaking the stupid rules we were all brought up with.

Have. Great time!

Outfit of the day : hello Friday!

Its Friday and I can´t wait to finally be able to go out on the town with my friends tonight. For a night out I usually try everything on just before I go out, but recently I have been trying to plan ahead my outfits if I know I´m not going to have too much time to get ready. I bought this beautiful lamé, embroidered skirt from Forever21, for a New Years party I never went to and have only worn it once to a birthday party. So Today I decided to give it a go and pair it with a black bodysuit also from  Forever21 , a pair of black booties from Torrid, and my beloved tortoise shell inspired sunnies I found a thrift shop in NYC. 

Hope you have a great night and weekend!
