The Knot

_MG_2078

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.

I’ve been remodeling my room for over a year now. It is not a matter of indecision, all the opposite, it is a matter of knowing exactly how I want it to be, and getting frustrated at the fact that there are no good furniture offers in the Salvadoran design market.

Not only that, but now I have also realized that I am in urgent need of a small working space… (since my bed has never been a suitable desk.) Sadly, I have the ominous feeling that the pret-a-acheter desks will not fulfill my requirements either. This notion has pushed me into a Pinterest/Instagram hunt for inspiration on a small office space. As I am sure I am not the only one in this type of predicaments, I though I might share with all of you a few stylish work spaces that I have stumbled upon, should you find yourself looking for inspiration.

A Cream Jacket

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.
