red lipstick


Dress/Vestido: J.Crew Shoes/Zapatos: Michael Kors, Purse/Cartera: Rebecca Minkoff , Bracelet/Pulsera: Bauble Bar 

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! I'm excited to share this fun collaboration with friend and fellow blogger Ashley behind the blog Sed Bona. I had the pleasure to meet Ashley at the Simply Stylist event earlier this summer and immediately connected over fashion, our love for Chicago and our eagerness to try every restaurant in the city. I love how summery and feminine this J.Crew dress is and the playful dramatic ruffle sleeves are bonus! This dress is extremely lightweight and can easily be dressed down with sandals or up with fun wedges or pumps. Ashley gave me the courage to add a little "flavour" to my outfit by wearing a bold, red colored lipstick. I KNOW! When have you ever seen me wear any lipstick at all? haha I absolutely loved trying something different and might even wear it again.
Do yourself a favor and check out Ashley's Instagram account...she has some beautiful pictures! Thank your for reading...I look forward to reading your comments!

Estoy super emocionada de compartir esta colaboración con mi amiga y bloguera Ashley del blog Sed Bona. Tuve el placer de conocer a Ashley durante el evento de Simply Stylist hace unas semanas y enseguida nos pusimos hablar de Chicago, la comida y por supuesta la moda. Este vestido blanco es super femenino y coqueto en las mangas. El vestido es super ligero y facil de combinar para un look casual o un look de noche con tacones o plataformas. Ashley me dio el valor de darle un poco de "flavour" al look con este pintalabio rojo. LO PUEDEN CREER? Cuando me han visto con usar cualquier pintalabio en general? haha La verdad es que me gusto probar algo diferente y puede ser hasta que vuelva a usar el color rojo. 
Les recomiendo que sigan a Ashley via Instagram porque la verdad tiene unas fotos espectaculares. Muchas gracias por leer y espero leer sus comentarios abajos.

Top/Camisa: American Apparel similar here,  Skirt/Falda: Endless Rose also love this onePurse/Cartera: H&M, Shoes/Zapatos: Louis Vuitton

I wore this sexy yet classy outfit over the weekend while going out with my husband. I love the bold stripes on this Endless Rose skirt and how versatile it is. This time around I paired up the skirt with this basic black crop top but could easily wear it with a navy or white top. I added a pop of color with this fun and affordable H&M shoulder bag. What do you guys think? Would you wear this bold midi skirt on a night out?

Use este look sexy y classico a la misma vez durante el fin de semana saliendo con mi esposo. Me encanta las rayas gruesas de esta falda de Endless Rose y lo versátil que es.  Esta vez combine la falda con este top negro, sencillo pero fácilmente puede combinar la falda con un top azul o blanco. Le agregue un poco de color al look con esta cartera super economica de H&M. Que les parece? Ustedes usarian esta falda?

linen maxi dress

hat with pom pom diy
jcrew maxi dress

Dress/Vestido: J.Crew ( now on SALE) also love this one,  Hat/Sombrero: DIY,  Bracelet/Pulsera: BaubleBar also love this one,  Purse/Cartera: Colombian mochila similar here,  Sunglasses/Lentes: RayBan

Honestly when I first saw this linen maxi dress online at J.Crew I wasn't really that impress. It wasn't until I went into the store and noticed the blue chevron pattern and it's airy material that I realized this is a summer must-have. I love how comfortable and elegant this dress is, you can dress it down with sandals or dress it up with wedges. I wanted to add a little "flavour" to the outfit and added this cheerful floppy hat with green pom poms. I'm the least crafty person you will ever meet but when I saw this DIY project on Mimosa Lane I knew I wanted to give it a try. What do you guys think? Do you like how the hat looks? What about the dress?
Thank you so much for reading! Hope to hear from you in the comment section below...

La verdad es que cuando vi este vestido por internet no estaba muy convencida. Despues que fui a la tienda y me di cuenta del material y las rayas me pareció el vestido ideal para el verano. El vestido es sumamente cómodo y elegante, lo puedes usar con sandalias para un look más sencillo o con plataformas. Le agregre un poco de "flavour" al look con este sombrero con pom pom verdes. La verdad es que no soy la mejor persona para hacer disenos ni construir nada pero cuando vi el proyecto de agregarle pom pom al sombrero en el blog Mimosa Lane supe que tenia que intentarlo. Que les parece, les gusta el sombrero? Que les parece el vestido? 
Muchas gracias por leer!

bold stripes

ugg wedges
chicago fashion blogger

Dress/Vestido: Gap, Shoes/Zapatos: UGGS ( now on sale), Bracelet/Pulsera: Furla, Purse/Cartera: Carolina Herrera similar here

As I made my way through the Gap store on Michigan Avenue this black stripe dress immediately caught my eye. I love the classy fit and bold stripes and the side pockets are a total bonus! When shopping I always try to think about the longevity of the dress, how many times will actually wear this dress? This summer dress can be worn with wedges as I did below, with flats for a casual stroll around the city or with pointy pumps for a more clean-cut look. I added some "flavour" to the look by creating a contrast between the stripes of the dress and these fun wedges by UGGs. I also added my new bold bracelet my Furla and this adorable purse by Carolina Herrera.  
I would love to know what you think of cheerful look...let me know in the comments below.
                                            ____________________________________________

Mientra compraba en la tienda Gap de Michigan Avenue este vestido enseguida me llamo la atención. Me encanta el look clásico del vestido, las rayas anchas y los bolsillos a los lados. Cuando compro siempre pienso en cuántas veces puedo usar el vestido. Por ejemplo este vestido se puede usar con plataformas como lo hice yo en las fotos de arriba, con flats para un look casual o tacones para un look mas clásico. Le di un poco de "flavour" al look con estas plataformas rojas de UGGS y esta carterita roja de Carolina Herrera. 
Me encantan leer sus comentarios! Dejenme saber que piensan de este look abajo.

saying yes to new adventures

(The view from the Heritage Village in Abu Dhabi from our trip back in January) 

I've been writing my blog for almost a year now and for those who have followed my journey - thank you from the bottom of my heart; it means the world that you take the time out of your jam-packed schedules to stop by my blog. I've been thinking over and over about the best way to tell all of you some incredibly exciting news. A couple ideas that crossed my mind: buying balloons and taking some cute outfit pictures or perhaps waiting till the last minute, but my latina-self got the best of me and I'm just going to tell all of you that my husband and I are packing our bags and moving to the other side of the world! More specifically, we're moving to Abu Dhabi! haha yikessss....
Some of you might be asking "Wait, where is she moving?" or perhaps "Why is she moving?" and those are all great questions! In a nutshell, we're moving to the United Arab Emirates (yes, the Middle East) in September (yes, that's in a month) ...! Why? Mainly due to the fact my husband was offered an amazing new job opportunity and our adventurous hearts didn't hesitate to jump on board! We are both excited and nervous for all the uncertainty and fun things ahead. I will continue to post outfits pictures on a weekly basis as well incorporate a lifestyle post once a week. Most importantly, I will be traveling back and forth between Chicago and Abu Dhabi...splitting my time between both cities. 
Thank you to all of you for your support and I invite you to please follow along in this next, exciting stage of our lives. Follow along as we make Abu Dhabi our new home, make new friends, learn and embrace the culture of the UAE, travel the world and much, much more. 

Thank you again!

Llevo casi un año escribiendo este blog y para aquellos que me han seguido muchas gracias! Llevo tiempo pensando sobre la mejor manera de contarle a todos que mi esposo y yo nos vamos a mudar al otro lado del mundo. Para ser mas especificos, nos mudamos a Abu Dhabi!
Me imagino que alguno de ustedes se estaran preguntando, " para donde se va a mudar?" or tal vez "porque se estan mudando"  y la verdad es que son todas unas buenas y lógicas preguntas. Nos mudamos a los Emiratos Arabes la segunda semana de Septiembre ( si, en un mes)....! Porque? Primordialmente por el trabajo de mi esposo y nosotros siendo tan aventureros no queríamos dejar pasar esta gran oportunidad. Los dos estamos sumamente emocionados! Yo voy a continuar mi blog al igual que incorporar un poco mas de nuestro estilo de vida.También voy a estar viajando entre Chicago y Abu Dhabi dividiendo mi tiempo entre las dos ciudades.
Muchas gracias a todos por el apoyo y los invito a que sigan con nosotros este nueva etapa de nuestras vidas. Siganme mientras hacemos Abu Dhabi nuestro nuevo hogar, nuestros viajes, y aprendemos de la cultura.

Muchas gracias!
