Midi Sweater Dress










We spent this past weekend in Utah visiting family. The weather was fantastic as was the scenery. It’s so green and the mountain views are amazing; there are so many great spots for photo ops. While in Salt Lake City, I got a couple hours to hit up Nordstrom and check out the Nordstrom anniversary sale. Unfortunately, none of the items I purchased that day were on sale but I didn’t mind because I love them all. I’m obsessed with this midi sweater dress. The material is super soft and a great weight, it hugs the body without being clingy. The rectangular cut and arm stripes make it such a casual piece which I always love to pair with sky-high heels. Speaking of obsessions, I can’t get over these Saint Laurent sandals. I’ve been wearing them with everything lately and I don’t plan on stopping, they’re just so chic!

Summertime is the perfect time to play with colors and textures. This woven clutch by Vince Camuto has lots of both. I love clashing patterns, like this clutch and scarf. Mixing patterns can be tricky but if each item has pattern and/or color that picks up on another item then they’ll play well together because it still allows the outfit to flow. You’ll notice there are stripes in the dress, scarf, and clutch.

MIDI-SKIRT-2 MIDI-SKIRT-3 MIDI-SKIRT-7 MIDI-SKIRT-8 MIDI-SKIRT-1Pencil skirts are a wardrobe essential. There is so much you can do with them. Until recently, I’d been using my H & M pencil skirt which I’ve shot many times here, here, here, here and here. I love that skirt, it was so inexpensive and very comfy. It’s now too faded to wear with silk blouses and other elevated elements so I only wear it with nude ballet flats and comfy tops. It surprises me how much use I got out of it give the low price point. However, now that it’s faded I had to look for a new midi pencil skirt. This time I searched for a material that won’t easily fade so I went with a rayon/nylon blend fabric. I also wanted something really soft, with a bit of stretch, and no waistband. I found this gorgeous Vince Camuto skirt and I’m super happy with it. It’s ridiculously soft and very comfortable.

Another new find, is the red lip gloss I’m wearing. I don’t really wear lip gloss often but an updo really calls for glossy lips so I put on the new Chanel lip gloss in “Pirate”. This gloss is rich in vitamin E which really hydrates the lips, and the color is stunning! Also wearing Nars velvet lip liner in “Nihiwatu”.

LEATHER-10When in doubt, wear black. I’ve been very eager to wear this Michael Kors leather jacket and it’s finally starting to cool down enough to do so. The soft, supple leather is amazing. I also love the matte-like finish of the leather, it lends a casual and effortlessly cool vibe. These cap toe boots are a favorite of mine even though I’m not a fan of short heels. I typically opt for a heel above 5 inches but the cap toe on these had me sold. I’m thinking about parting ways with them though, I really need a higher heel.

Si no sabes que ponerte, vistete de negro. He estado muy entusiasmada para usar esta chaqueta de cuero de Michael Kors. Finalmente ha empezado a enfriar lo suficiente como para usar la. La piel de esta chaqueta esta super suave y es increíble.  También me encanta el acabado mate de esta chaqueta, que le da una apparencia casual y cool. Estas botas con punta de capa son una de mis favoritas, aunque no me gustan los tacones cortos. Típicamente  optó por un tacón  de 5 pulgadas o mas, pero la punta de estas botas me encantaron. Estoy pensando en despedirme de estas botas. Lo que me recuerda, ¿sabían ustedes que puede comprar articulos en mi armario de Poshmark?

RRB-4I’m so excited for autumn! I practically live in black skinny jeans. A good pair of denim such as these from Joe’s Jeans, are a necessity for me during fall and winter. These jean’s can be paired with a nice silk blouse, a clutch, and some heels for evening and equally with a basic tee and boots during the day. Get ready to see this closet staple on here A LOT as I showcase their undeniable versatility. Another one of my favorite pieces is this adorable, sparkly ladybug ring from Swarovski. I saw this ring at an antique store I often frequent. It caught my eye from afar and I commented on it to Marc, who was with me at the time. One day I visited the store and it was gone. A couple weeks later, I received it as a Christmas present! I was so shocked, I think I literally shrieked with joy.

Estoy tan emocionada para el otoño! Prácticamente vivo en skinny jeans negros. Un buen par de pantalones como estos de Joe’s Jeans, son una necesidad para mí durante el otoño y el invierno. Estos jeans se puede combinar con una blusa de seda, y unas zapatillas para la noche e igualmente con una camiseta y un par de botas durante el día. ¡Prepárate para ver este elemento básico aquí mucho ya que mostraré su innegable versatilidad. Otra de mis piezas favoritas es esta, anillo brillante adorable de Swarovski. Vi este anillo en una tienda de antigüedades que visito con frecuencia. Me llamó la atención desde lejos y le comenté a Marc, que estaba conmigo en ese momento. Un día visité la tienda y ya no estaba. Un par de semanas más tarde, lo recibí de regalo para Navidad! Estaba tan sorprendida, creo que literalmente grité de alegría.

Weirdness is typically an attribute most try not be associated with. I like weirdness and weird things. As children we’re cast out by schoolmates when we don’t fit in. Even as young adults and into adulthood, fitting in becomes so important that we sometimes lose our true selves. Something about  “the nail that sticks out” comes to mind. But being a little weird is exactly what sets apart most of our current icons like, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

These two ladies are incredibly successful because of their talent and I like to think it also has a little to do with their weirdness. They’re not afraid to be different or stick out from the crowd. These two ladies, it seems, have fully embraced their weirdness. They’re incredibly unique and true to themselves. Life is too short to not be who you want to be. So grab your take out box handbag, put on your matchstick ring, slip on your sunglasses slingback pumps and take life by the horns.

Acepta lo extraño

Ser extraño suele ser un atributo con cual le mayoria de la gente trata de no asociarse . A mi me gustan las cosas extrañas. Cuando somos niños somos ignorados por los compañeros de escuela si tratamos de ser diferentes. Incluso la gente joven y hasta los adultos se esfuerzan para ser igual que los demas y se convierte en algo tan importante que a veces pierden su individualidad. Algo sobre “el clavo que sobresale” viene a la mente. Pero ser un poco extraño or raro es exactamente lo que distingue a la mayoría de nuestros iconos como, Lady Gaga y Katy Perry.

Estas dos mujeres son increíblemente exitosas debido a su talento y me gusta pensar que también tiene que ver un poco con sus manera extraña de ser. Ellas no tienen miedo de ser diferente o sobresalir de la multitud. Estas dos mujeres, al parecer, han adoptado plenamente sus maneras extrañas. Son increíblemente únicas y fieles a sí mismas. La vida es demasiado corta para no ser quien quieres ser. Así que coge tu bolso de caja de comida China, agarra el anillo de cerilla, ponte las zapatillas de lentes de sol y agarra  la vida por los cuernos.
