Tweed Shorts + a Pop!

What are your thoughts on shorts during the chilly season? I decided to try it out, I mean they are tweed and why not? I feel that fashion is all about taking risks. And you know, it's like wearing a mini skirt. I have been seeing these adorable shorts everywhere. Here is how I wore mine. I felt a look like this is classy but still a little sexy. Whenever showing off skin, don't over do it. If you show cleavage, don't show too much legs or if you show legs don't show too much cleavage. And work with what you've got ;)

Top: H&M
Blazer: H&M
Shorts: Marshalls
Belt: Zara
Shoes: Forever 21
Watch: NY&Co

What do you think? I also thought of wearing them with knee highs... that will be my next outfit ;) have you worn them lately? Show me your pics.

If there is one thing I do love about fall/winter weather, it is the fashion! I love the knee high boots, the cute berets, the colorful scarves and the list goes on... Here is this casual, a little rocker with a touch of cozy look I wore yesterday!
Si hay algo que me encante del verano es la moda! Desde las botas, bufandas hasta los lindos gorritos. Este look de ayer es casual pero con un poquito rock'n'roll. Pero lo suavise un poco con este sueter tejido.

Hat/Gorra: Old
Sweater/Sueter: Forever 21
Leggings/Pantalon: Zara
Necklace/Cadena: Lola Blue, the closet
Handbag/Cartera: Olivia + Joy
Bracelets/Pulseras: Lola Blue, the closet
Watch/Reloj: NY & Co.

I must say that these leggings are on of my favorite! They are suede! I love this look because it's fashionable and comfortable. I've had these boots for a long time and they are such great quality, they are still in tip-top shape. Oh and don't forget to stop by my boutique to check out these + more stackable bracelets - Lola Blue, the closet!

{Splurge vs. Steal} Wedged Bootie!

I've been looking for the perfect booties for this fall/winter season. I wanted something with a wedge to give me comfort, especially that I can wear often when I am out with my son. I found these amazing brown suede booties at Forever 21 and I knew I had to have them. The very first day I wore them (see how I styled them on THIS POST) I spotted the most similar booties at Zara, see below!

Forever 21: $32.80
Zara: $49.90

Zara's are still very well priced, but I can use the $18 for a casual top or some nice lipstick in a wine hue I've been spotting ;) 

Do you love? Which would you get? The only big difference is really the shoe laces.

They don't have my pair available online, I bought them at my local mall. But they do have these faux leather wedged ones I've been eyeing as well... and 3 different color options.

{Fresh Skin} Facial Cleansing Routine!

As far back as I can remember, one advice my mom always gave me was to take care of my skin. From when I was a little girl to the days as a teenager when I began to wear makeup. She would always make sure I washed my face correctly, removed my makeup and bought me any products to treat or prevent any acne I may have had. I was lucky to be blessed with fairly clear skin. But there were those days when those little suckers (zits) would appear.

One of the most important things about caring for my body other than healthy eating habits is keeping my skin fresh and clean. As a fashion blogger - I love to play around with clothes AND makeup, I don't wear heavy makeup on a daily basis unless I am on a night out but for my day-to-day I do love my mascara, bronzer,  lipstick/lipgloss, and I can't live without my concealer!

So for me the most important part is cleansing and maintaining, that is to make sure my face is clean and I go to bed makeup-less. But as a mom of a 15 month old and the hectic days I've had lately, for me, a reliable and efficient skin routine is a must! I have trusted Neutrogena for years now. And their Neutrogena® Pink Grapefruit Line features products that powerfully treat and help prevent breakouts and blackheads while delivering a refreshing blast of 100% naturally derived grapefruit extract and vitamin C. It's a win-win for me. Quick and easy steps for fast and amazing results!

I typically wash my face with a acne preventing cleanser, even though I have fairly clear skin, I like to prevent them. I recently started using Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser and I must say I am loving it. It leaves my skin feeling amazing, so clear and fresh. It does not irritate my skin and it prevents breakouts!

After washing my face, I use a toner (twice a week, to prevent drying out) then immediately apply an SPF moisturizer, DAILY, even twice a day. I always use SPF on everything I put on my skin.

I use the Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub three times a week. It does not irritate my skin as it is gentle enough for everyday use, but I like to not use too many products all in one day. I find that for my skin, less is best. I first wash my face with the facial cleanser then use the scrub. These are my best skin days... and my makeup looks amazing after this morning shower wash!

By the time night falls, I am exhausted. This is why I love cleansing wipes! They are easy and efficient. They are my DAILY go-to product when it comes to my bed time routine. I've been using Neutrogena® Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes Pink Grapefruit, they are gentle and remove all my makeup, even my eye makeup! It leaves my skin feeling young and vibrant! And off to bed I go :)

Ladies, it is so important to find the time to care for your skin. For me before I had my baby I had the time of the world. Not "me time" is a lot less but I always find time to follow my skin Facial Cleansing Routine and sticking to it! It is as important as going to the gym or eating healthy. Take care of your skin and maintain it. Whether to you that means a daily facial ritual or a once a month facial at the spa... whatever it may be, be sure to stick to it and make a it a daily occurrence. You will thank yourself in a few years! 

What is your skin cleansing routine like?
