Isn’t this red trench coat from Burberry perfect? I am definitely adding this little number to my wish list. I have always said that when I buy a trench coat it HAS TO BE Burberry!

I got to create two outfits out and I love the pops of colours on both! I am obsessing over the Joie Navy Blue Blazer because it is casual and perfect for layering over basically any colour top and both the Ted Baker top and Eileen Fisher boyfriend jeans give life to this outfit. The outfit on the right is full Red Valentino. Aren’t those printed yellow pants everything!? Absolutely in LOVE!

As you all probably know by now, DVF is my favourite designer and one of the women I admire the most. Wearing one of her iconic dresses truly makes you feel like the woman I want to become. This romper is so fun and cute!! I love it !

How to Style: Shorts & Playsuits

rs_560x415-130726152252-1024-shorts-jl-072613_copy

For all my northern friends, Spring  is upon us and pretty soon the sun will shine and warm your skin. I promise!  This spring, shorts and playsuits will be must- haves in my closet. When travelling, I will be bringing a combination of both in different styles and colors. These pieces are perfect for warmer weather because you can either dress them down for a day outing, the beach or simply to lounge around or pair them up with high heels, wedges, a statement necklace and a clutch and you are good to go for a night out! Overall shorts are also a piece I am looking forward to styling  and I can’t wait to wear them! Who said overalls are for 5 year olds!? Ok, they are, BUT, the new overalls going around town, look really pretty on grown up women!  I have added two inspiration mood boards to show my favorites of the season and how I will possibly be styling my pieces!

I am all in for prints this  spring season, especially tribal and floral printed shorts! A good lace short can do no wrong whether is day or night, and how can we forget the basic jean shorts that can be styled with so many different blouses and basic shirts. A statement necklace can really dress it up as well! Just remember the golden rule, if you show legs, cover up top, Less is Always more!

The playsuits that I have added to my wardrobe this spring are both printed and solid bright colors! For a spring/summer vacation, a simple white playsuit is essential because you can pair it with so many other colors and that can save space in your luggage! The more flowy a playsuit is, the more I like it, since being comfortable is what I crave most! Aren’t this inspiration playsuits delightful? The black playsuit reminds me of the LBD, so that means, we need one just like it!

What style is your favorite? Shorts or Playsuits? How would you style overalls?

Fashion Tuesday: Monochrome Olive

For this week’s #OOTD I decided to go for the monochromatic look and use one of my favourite colours of the season : Olive. Although in Puerto Rico it is perpetually “hot”, this look can be easily worn with jeans and an olive toned sweater as opposed to the short sleeve blouse I am wearing. I love this look for the weekend or a laid back night out. There are tons of festivals happening here year round and this look is perfect to maintain a stylish edge while keeping it cool during hot days out.

How to style: Basic Button Down White Shirt

One of my favorite items in my closet is a simple white button down shirt. It offers versatility like no other item of clothing. It wears extremely well across all seasons and can be dressed up or down. It pairs amazingly with shorts, jeans and even skirts. Here are some of my favorite looks that I will be using as inspiration for upcoming posts! Stay tuned & Happy Sunday!

” I got to say I miss cold weather and layering! Living on this beautiful island can sometimes get a little too hot. The weather has been nice to us recently and has calmed and cooled down a bit and I have enjoyed this immensely. For today’s OOTD I decided to break out the leather and the fringes and the faux fur gillets. Hey, go big or go home, right? I just love the neutrality of this outfit and how the turquoise of the statement necklace makes everything come together. I added the little belt to accentuate my waist although it can also be worn loosely. I decided to layer the necklaces because I am a bit obsessed with the little dainty  necklace and the turquoise reminds me of my favorite princess, Pocahontas. I would love to pair this outfit with nude booties, but its not cold enough for that. So on our less than hot nights, I will be throughly enjoying this outfit!”

Trends: Mixing Prints

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Recently I have been more open to new fashion adventures and for me, mixing prints is definitely one of them. I always wondered how it was possible to achieve such perfect ensembles with that much difference in patterns and prints. Like everything, mixing prints has its little tricks and secrets. After many hours researching and finding my favorite ones, I am here to share them with you and make your closet filled with endless fashionable possibilities! The first thing to know about mixing prints is that in order to find harmony between the pieces it is important to link them with a common color palette or undertones. Also, a good idea is to combine different textures. If you are unsure of where to start: black and white is always a safe bet. It is important to make a single piece, your key item. Whatever you decide to pair it up with should be a subtler print, in order to achieve harmony and not let the prints become “too much”. It is also very important to accessorise accordingly by adding a solid color item (shoes, handbag, necklace) that will tie your outfit together. My favorite patterns to style are stripes with animal print or florals. As I learn more and feel more confident, I will be diving into the deep end of mixed prints! The best thing about mixing prints is that it can be done during all seasons, from fall through summer! Here are some of my favorite ways of mixing prints! Enjoy, and remember to be bold and dare to be yourself! Fashion is not about faithfully following a certain trend, it is about seeing a trend that you like, and making it your very own! screen-shot-2014-07-28-at-11-11-07-pm I found these useful styling tips from  MadebyGirl and will be incorporating to my wardrobe!

The Petite Diaries: Boyfriend Jeans

Today on The Petite Diaries, we will be talking about styling boyfriend jeans specifically for petite women. Boyfriend Jeans can look a little daunting at first  but with the right amount of fabric and styling, we too can rock the boyfriend jeans. I used to be afraid of the trend, although I spent countless hours pinning looks on Pinterest trying to find the right style for me . After much research and venturing out to different retailers, I found my pair! Although I need to alter it for sizing ( It’s a very loose fitting size 1 ), I believe the lenght, color, and distressing is perfect. I have used it and styled it with cardigans and form fitting tops as well as paired it up with heels and wedges. I will be showing you soon how I have styled them! In the meantime I wanted to give you some inspiration on the best ways to style boyfriend jeans for petite gals!

This post can be found in Spanish over at EgoModa!

 When it comes to style, a slim cut boyfriend jean is the best bet for a petite frame. Another tip that works and I have used, buy some jeans one size up and/or  a pair of your size that are slim but loose fitting and those could pass as boyfriend jeans as well!

 When it comes to cuffing your jeans, make sure they are cuffed as narrowly as possible. Add feminine statements like heels, necklaces, a bold bag or bright lips to keep it girly!
