Tuxedo Pants with a Floral Touch!

I love all the flower prints that were all over the runway for NYFW - they are so feminine and give any look a little colorful and delicate touch, whether you wear jeans with a floral top, a pretty skirt or in my case here, off white pants, in the winter! I don't follow rules, I don't think you should only wear white before Labor Day, that's just silly to me. I think winter white is absolutely fabulous and looks so clean cut and makes a statement, in my opinion. I wore this outfit for a night out with my husband for dinner and drinks... if course I had to retake the photos the next day because I like to post pics with sunlight :) 
Me encantan todos los estampados florales que estan de moda. Estuvieron por las pasarelas de la semana de la moda de Nueva York y por supuesto ahora en todas las tiendas. Me parece que se van tan bonito un outfit con una blusa de flores, con un jean o falda.. yo me puse la mia con este pantalon beige. Me parecio super chic y un poquito diferente. Me puse este outfit  para salir a cenar con mi esposo. 

I needed to wear a blazer because of course it is cold here in NJ but I took it off so you can see how much better this outfit looked without it. I totally am in love with these pieces. I want to wear them again + again.
Me puse este blazer negro porque hace frio aca en NJ. Pero el conjunto se veia mas lindo en mi opinion sin el blazer, es uno de mis conjuntos favoritos! Me quite el blazer para las fotos y adentro del restautant.

Forever 21 - My favorite shoes right now!

When I saw these sandals on the Forever 21 website I knew I had to get them immediately and I so glad I did. They were sold out with it a day I think, because just a couple of days later they were not available. They were just $34.90 and look even better in person. They had a leopard print that was nice but I love this black on so much more, classic with edge.
I've gone back and back again because I know so many of you wanted it but no luck. I did find these gorgeous ones for just $29.80 - I am getting the tomato color and citron. You cannot beat this price! And the best part free shipping for orders over $50 - win-win!
Many times I don't find these at the store, so I love that I can be guaranteed a fab show even if I didn't see it first, like i usually like to. I've been 100% satisfied with all my Forever 21 shoes to date. I can't wait to wear these, spring get here already! I am waiting....

Do you shop Forever 21 online? I love it.

Behind the Scenes Makeup Academy Grand Opening!

I had the pleasure to attend the grand opening event of Behind the Scenes, a professional makeup academy in Hoboken. My dear friend and professional makeup artist Stephanie Crespo invited me to the join the event and I couldn't be more happy to have attended. I got to meet the fabulous and stylish owner Jules, she was super sweet. I was very inspired by her achievements. She is a celebrity make up artist and stylist, definitely an inspiration to me. One more time, just proves to me that we can in fact, have it all, woman really run the world!

Blouse: Prabal Gurung for Target | Collar Necklace: Lola Blue, the closet | Pants: Zara | Shoes: Aldo 

Here I am with my hairdresser Steph (it's a small world, she is Jules' hairdresser as well), with Jules (the owner of the BTS) and one of my fellow NJ bloggers and true inspiration Naty Michelle from A Love Affair with Fashion. It was such a pleasure to spend the evening with such powerful and determined women.  

  Toast time!
With the BTS team, my friends and professional make up artists Stephanie Crespo and Jay Perez.

  I fell in love with Stephanie's dress and earrings, the red lip completed the look for sure.

I wore my Ivanka Bib Necklace from my boutique, check it out HERE.

 It was a great and succesful night, best of luck to Jules and her fab new venture. She is a talented woman and I am sure this will be a success. The location for the venue is perfect and the studio is pretty fab.

Black + White { Bey Inspired }

If you know me, you know that I am a huge fan of Beyonce. Of course her music and artistic skills are superb, but to me it is much for that just about her career. She is an amazing powerful, independent and most of all determined woman. She inspired me to be my own voice and follow my dreams every day. I take pride in working hard to achieve my dreams all while taking care of my son and husbands... "strong enough to bare the children...then get back to business" - so when I saw her black and white tribal leggings she wore during one of the rehearsals for the super bowl this year, I knew I had to have a similar pair in my closet. 


This elefante necklace is one of my favorite to wear with this classic white collar shirt, a must have in your closet. You can get this necklace HERE.

Being silly at the end of taking photos.

Lipstick: Russian Red by MAC
Sunnies: Chanel
Blouse: Topshop
Leggings: Forever 21
Booties: Forever 21
Crossbody Purse: Olivia + Joy

I wore it a lot different than Beyonce did. But I love these pants, though they are trendy, I love the black & white for a bit of a rocker chic look And guess what... the prince? $10.80!

How would you wear these B&W leggings? I can't wait till spring to be able to wear dresses, short sleeves and crop tops.... we are almost there.sigh.

This Eagle Has Landed!

Lately I've been feeling like I have zero time and I am always rushing. I have so many things coming my way, from the boutique to the blog, to my adorable son and my husband, to collaborations and events... the list is endless right now, but guess what? I love it! Well, finally I took some time out to get a little haircut on Saturday afternoon (you will see my new hair on the next post) and I wanted to wear my favorite t-shirt of all, my sequin eagle t-shirt, from where else but my fave place: Zara. This is how I wore it! 
Ultimamente no tengo tiempo para nada. Desde el blog a la boutique, mi bello hijo y esposo, colaboraciones y eventos.... pero la verdad estar ocupada con este tipo de cosas me encanta. Solo quisiera tener mas horas en el dia. Bueno, pero por fin tuve unas horitas y me fui al salon de belleza a cortarme el pelo (cual veran en mi proximo post) y me quize poner mi camiseta favorita! Es color gris oscura, con una aguila de brillitos, me encanta! Y por supuesto es de mi tienda favorita, Zara.

What did you think of this bad-ass-rocker look? I love to dress like this sometimes.
Que les parecio este look asi un poquito rocker? De ves en cuando me encanta vestirme asi.

{ Pearls + Shoe Jewels }

The weather in NJ is all sorts of crazy. But lucky for me the passed couple days have been amazing, sunny morning and up to 40 degrees. Trust me for the East Coast, this weather in February equals big news! So I've been wearing my staple piece blazers and no coats! That makes me extra happy. Today I wore my favorite blazer right now. I purchased this one on Black Friday for $20 at H&M, How cute is it? 20 bucks for a blazer? you can't go wrong. I wanted to add a chunky statement necklace to this outfit so I went with the Camila Pearl Bib Necklace from my boutique - it is stunning in person, such a statement piece.
El clima en NJ a estado super loco, pero no crean que me estoy quejando. Como les he contado no me gustan los abrigos gruesos coats.  Por eso estuve feliz esta manana cuando el sol salio tempranito a brillar y la temperatura estaba riquisima. Los dias asi me ponen del mejor humor. Compre este blazer el dia de Black Friday en H&M por tan solo $20! Lindo, no? Quize ponerme un collar grande y que resaltara por eso me puse el Camila de mi boutique, es hasta mas bello en persona.

How fab is my necklace?

I am in complete love with these shoes, they are so girly and just simple P R E T T Y. 
I love putting together fun outfits for work. They make me feel amazing all day. An untraditional but chic work outfit can truly make you stand out. Be sure to always buy key pieces that become must haves in your closet, a versatile clothing item is an investment. 
Estoy enamorada de estos zapatos. Son tan femeninos y simplemente H E R M O S O S.
Me encanta combinar estilos no convencionales para ir al trabajo, de seguro que resaltaras. Asegurate de comprar siempre piezas que sean versatiles. Ahorras plata porque te lo puedes poner una y otra vez.


{ Purple Rain } a warm February day!

I love to get up and get dressed... it is probably the only thing that gets me up in the morning. I often plan my work outfits as I am falling asleep the night before. Yesterday I wanted to wear my super cute Lana del Rey top I got in September, you may have seen it HERE last year, when I wore it out to a dinner date with my husband. This time I wanted to make it a little more casual so I wore jeans and my favorite pumps right now, the purple pointies!
La parte de las mananas que mas me gusta es vestirme. Casi todo las noches planeo mi outfit antes de acostarme a dormir. Ayer me quize poner esta blusas de Lana del Rey para H&M, ustedes se acordaran que me la puse AQUI el Octubre pasado para salir a comer con mi esposo. Esta vez quize estar mas casual y me la puse con jeans y con mis zapatos del momento!

I apologize for the crappy snow in the background. We had a blizzard over the weekend and though the snow fall is beautiful and looks amazing on the very first day... for those of you who don't live on the East Coast a few days into the snow, it gets all crappy and dirty... Not so beautiful anymore.

Missing summer....
Perdonen por la nieve sucia atras en las fotos, tuvimos una tormenta de nieve el pasado fin de semana y ahora no se tan bonita como el primer dia. Tuvimos un dia mas calido de lo que se espera para Febrero ayer... pero sigo extranando el verano...
