Poplin shirts are having a major moment right now. I love how designers are upping the ante of casual wear, by adding whimsical details to our usual, everyday shirts. They come with ruffles, tassels, flared sleeves, and a long line of etceteras.
The moment I spotted this particular top, I coveted it; its allure residing on how it mixes your typical baby blue stripes with the floral embroideries, a style very à la Gucci. I kept the look on the cool tones, by sticking to blues, whites, and silvers. This way, the outfit results fun, yet smart enough for a casual day of work.
I’ve already mentioned before my love for interior design. There’s something about creating warm and inviting ambiances that sooth you after a long work day. Hence, when I step in a place that offers me an eye-catching piece of decoration, I always appreciate it. My visits to “Hecho en Casa”, a small space devoted to showcasing everything from clothes to furniture, strictly designed and made in El Salvador, are always a chance to find interesting pieces. I came by a few weeks ago and loved the atypical luminaire display on their outside balcony. I hope you find it as inspiring as I did!
Hi everyone! I trust your week is going well! I have been told many, many times how hard it is to give me a gift. A gift that I will like and cherish. Well, my godmother sure hit the sweet spot when she bought this dress for me! The only reason why I haven’t worn it that much is because it is actually a bit big on me, and I just haven’t come around to tailoring it. However, I like it so much that I have used it a couple of times already. It struck me that wearing a t-shirt or body underneath would be a great solution to my current fitting problem. Add a waist belt to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a pretty cool ensemble. I encourage you all to get a tad creative when fixing these sorts of inconveniences. You never know what good look you can end up with!
Through the years, I have come to understand how important it is to know yourself, not only emotionally but in each and every way. It is important to know what color suits you, what shape is more flattering on you, what trends you can and should try. This is the way you can guarantee that your look will always stay on point. In this sense, correct me if I am wrong, but I find that A-line mini skirts are one of my fortes. Albeit it being very simple, there are certain details that make this look work: the flared sleeves, the snake print sling backs, the red nails, the denim… It is all about working with the simplicity of it.
One of my favourite pieces for a business look are wide leg trousers, specially when they are high waisted. They make you look taller, stronger and ready to tackle anything. I paired a dusty pink pair with a black top, a printed scarf and snake print stilettos, which add a playful touch to the combo.
