#HM fall fashion

Outfit/ Atuendo: H&M (head to toe)

Happy Wednesday everyone! As you already know I'm a big fan of H&M so when they asked me to style a fall inspired look I jumped on the opportunity. I love this denim tunic dress because it's so versatile and easy to dress up or down according to the occasion. This time around I added a skinny belt to highlight my waist and these amazing patent mules! I wanted to add a pop of color to the outfit so I  added this must-have burgundy tote bag. Another way to style this dress is by adding a pair of tights or leggings for the cooler fall nights or perhaps a pair of booties and a wool fedora for a night out. I have to say this look might be one of my all time favorites, its casual and chic...and did you see the shoes? haha Make sure to checkout more of H&M'S Fall Fashion collection here. You can also head over to my Instagram and learn how you can win a $50 H&M gift card! Thank you so much for reading! 

On the other hand my husband and I are slowly settling into our new life in Abu Dhabi. I'm currently looking for a photographer who can take a few of my outfit pictures for the blog. If you or anyone knows any photographers in the UAE area please let me know. I will be posting more about our move and life in Abu Dhabi sometime next week. 

Como ya debe saber me encanta la marca H&M así que cuando me pidieron combinar un look para otoño les dije que si inmediatamente. Me encanta este vestido de jean porque es super versátil y se puede combinar para un look casual y un look de noche. Esta vez combine el vestido con una correa delgada para acentuar mi cintura y estos zapatos super modernos y diferentes. Para agregarle un poco mas de color al look combine esta cartera de color vino. Este vestido también se puede usar con leggins para un look casual o con tacones y un sombrero para un look de noche. Pueden ver mas de la colección de otoño de H&M aquí. Y también pueden seguirme en Instagram y ver como se pueden ganar $50 en H&M. 

Por el otro lado mi esposo y yo no estamos acomodando en Abu Dhabi. Por los momentos estoy buscando un fotógrafo que me ayude tomarme fotos para el blog así que si conocen a alguien porfavor déjenme saber. Para la próxima semana les estaré contando mas sobre nuestra mudanza a Abu Dhabi.

neon jumpsuit

Jumpsuit/Braga: ASOS,  Shoes/Zapatos: Christian Loubtoutin similar here,  Purse/Cartera: Gucci

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I heard Chicago got taste of fall over the weekend with temperatures in the mid 50s meanwhile the average temperature in Abu Dhabi is 100F haha...You can follow me on Instagram for more on our move to the Middle East.  
Before leaving to Abu Dhabi I took these fun pictures in the West Loop. How fun and vibrant is this neon jumpsuit from ASOS? I wore this outfit during my second day of New York Fashion Week and received tons of compliments! While walking outside Lincoln Center I was approached by a street style photographer and by the end of the day my picture was  featured on E! Online! This jumpsuit is definitely an eye catcher, the floral patterns adds to the already different colorful jumpsuit. What do you think? Is this jumpsuit too much...would you wear it around? 
Thank you so much for reading! Greetings from Abu Dhabi...


Espero que todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana! Me contaron que la temperatura bajo en Chicago a los 50F mientras en Abu Dhabi la temperatura diaria es de 100F...pueden ver mas de nuestra mudanza en mi Instagram
Que les parece esta braga vibrante y colorida de ASOS? Use esta misma braga durante mi segundo día en la semana de la moda. Pueden ver como combine la braga durante NYFW aquí. Esta braga es llamativa, comoda y a la moda. Me encanta los bolsillos a los lados al igual que el estampado de flores. Que les parece este look? Ustedes usarian esta braga? 
Muchas gracias por leer! Saludos desde Abu Dhabi

off the shoulder dress

Dress/Vestido: VAVA by Joy Han also love this one and this one, Shoes/Zapatos: Stuart Weitzman or herePurse/Cartera: Coach

Happy Friday everyone! If you follow me on Instagram then you know my husband and I made it to Abu Dhabi last night. We are so excited for this new stage of our lives and I look forward to sharing it with all of you. 
Before leaving to Abu Dhabi I visited one of my favorite Chicago restaurants, Antique Taco. I thought this hot pink off-the-shoulder dress was fitting to the tacos and margarita celebration lunch that afternoon. This dress is stretchy and comfortable. The off-the-shoulder makes this dress flirty and the crochet details adds a little "flavour" to the look. Below are other cute and colorful dresses from the same brand...
Thank you so much for reading! I hope everyone has a great weekend. 


Feliz viernes a todos! Si me siguen por Instagram saben que mi esposo y yo llegamos a Abu Dhabi ayer en la noche. Estamos super emocionados por esta nueva etapa de nuestras vidas y espero compartirla con ustedes. 
Antes de irme de Chicago me tome estas fotos afuera de uno de mis restaurantes favoritos, Antique Taco. Me parecio que el color del vestido al igual que la forma era ideal para mi almuerzo Mexicano. Este vestido es comodo y suave. El vestido fuera del hombre lo hace ver un poco que voy a volver a usar este vestido durante mis vacaciones Navidenas. 
Muchas gracias por leer! Espero que todos tengan un buen fin de semana.

Fedora/Sombrero: Sensi Studio, Scarf/Bufanda: Hermes similar here,  Shorts: American Appareal, Luggage/Maletin: Louis Vuitton

Happy Monday everyone! I'm back in Chicago from NYFW and even though I loved attending a few shows and love the energy of New York I'm happy to be back in Chicago. My husband and I are getting ready to move Abu Dhabi in just a few days...I can't believe it's finally here! We're pretty busy packing and getting everything ready so I will make this post a quick one. 
I took these fun pictures in Kalamazoo, Michigan a few weeks ago while visiting my best friend Bisera. We spotted this train mural and thought it was the perfect background for a fun casual travel weekend attire. Sometimes the most basic things in your closet make for the most beautiful outfits. I wore this basic black top with high-waited jean shorts. I added my signature accessory; this colorful fedora and added a little "flavor" to the outfit by folding this beautiful vibrant Hermes scarf around my neck. I love having timeless accessories like this scarf and finding different ways to wear it. Thank you for reading and stay tuned for a recap of my in time NYC! 


Espero que todos hayan tendió un buen fin de semana! Les cuento que estoy de regreso en Chicago depuse de la semana de la moda...y aunque me encanto ir a varios shows estoy feliz de estar de regreso en Chicago. También ando super ocupada ya que este Miercoles nos mudamos a Abu Dhabi!
Me tome estas fotos hace unas semanas en Michigan mientras visitaba a mi mejor amiga Bisera.  Vimos este mural mientras caminábamos y me pareció perfecto para un look de viaje. Combine una camisa negra sencilla con estos shorts de jeans. Agrege uno de mis accesorios preferidos; este sombrero y le di un poco de "flavour" al look con esta bufanda de colores. Lo importante es siempre tener piezas claves como esta bufanda y combinarlas en diferentes looks. Muchas gracias por leer...pronto estaré poniendo mas fotos de la semana de la moda. Saludos...
