BEST KEPT SECRET

JCP jumpsuit

You may or may not know that I named myself the Queen of Bargains a long time ago. You also may or may not know that I have been having a love affair with JCPenney for a decade. Everybody around me seems to be against this love affair of mine, but my boy JC is so good to me, I cannot quit him :-) I recently found this jumpsuit and paid $30 for it! Yeah, exactly. JC is good to me like that. The jumpsuit was on sale for $38.99 and I used a $10 coupon (boy, how I miss not paying sales taxes!). You can get a 20% discount coupon right here . I love this look because it allows you to dress up while staying super comfy. Winning!

Thanks for stopping by!

STYLE INFUSIONS WITH LORI AND SANDY: HOW TO WEAR POLKA DOTS

Happy Monday, everybody! This is my FAVE week of the year (besides my birthday’s!). I love, love, love Thanksgiving. I love that there is holiday dedicated to giving thanks – which is something that I do every single morning when I open my eyes. On that note, today I am very grateful to have my friend Lori join me. Lori has been a customer of mine for as long as I can remember, and we have become dear friends (I am almost sure that we talk daily via Instagram!). She’s the perfect example of how Sira&Mara has been an absolute blessing. Lori is also the pretty face behind the lifestyle blog Jet Set Smart. I love how Lori makes being a mama on the go look so effortless, and she always looks so stylish while doing so. I adore this look. 1. She’s wearing joggers – which I am currently obsessed with – 2. She’s wearing an all-time Sira&Mara necklace fave (now sold out). To get all the details from Lori’s look, please visit her blog here.

Now, let’s talk about my outfit. These days are rare, but when I do it, I really, really DO it. Pattern mixing, that is. I am more into simple pieces and funky accessories, but sometimes I just feel like doing something totally out of the ordinary for me, and this is the result. I love this Forever 21 shirt. It is so soft and comfy. Those booties were on absolute repeat last season, and I believe that that will also be the case this season.

Are you going through a polka dots kick as the majority of the world has been for a while?

MUSTARD IS THE NEW BLACK

Scarf and Bracelets: Sira&Mara; Dress: JCPenney (old); Booties: Guess (not online but recent TJ Maxx purchase)

Hello, everybody! November is the busiest month of the year for me, so right now normal photo shoots are completely out of the question. Of course, that is exactly the time when you wear your fave outfits. Ha! Anyway, I’m wearing a scarf today, because I know that I’ll freeze to death if I don’t. I’m having back to back meetings and the AC in the majority of Miami buildings is just ridiculously high.

Hope that you are having an awesome week! Thank you for stopping by!

HOW TO STYLE DISTRESSED DENIM 3 WAYS

Top: Primark (bought in Spain); Jeans: Zara (old and DIY distressing); Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless (old); Bracelets: Sira&Mara

Embellished top and distressed jeans

Top: Target (old); Shoes: Guess (old); Bracelets: Sira&Mara

Green Mossimo blazer

Blazer: Target (old); Shoes: Make Me Chic (old); Necklace: Sira&Mara

 

Well, well, well. Happy Friday! First, these are obviously not the best pictures you’ll ever see, but I believe that they will help you get some ideas about how to style your distressed denim. As you know, I have an “addiction” when it comes to this. I need to find old jeans that I do not wear and distress them myself and I then need to wear them constantly :-) As such, I get quite creative on my way to style them. If you cannot stop wearing distressed denim, I hope that you’ll find some ideas above. Since I distressed those myself, I have linked my favorite and very affordable finds.

Have a lovely weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Do you know that sentence “Dressing up starts when you are 5 and it never ends” or something like that? Well, for me, it started when I realized that it was illegal to run around naked. That is how much I like outfit planning. I love clothes, I love accessories but I despise planning in general. Planning what I am going to wear is no exception. As of today, I have no idea what my plans are for Thanksgiving, because I feel that planning something that far in advance (oh, yeah! in my head that is very far in advance) takes away all the fun in life. Anyway, this outfit is another great example of my “planning” skills. It went “I want to be comfy today” = super stretchy skinnies. More comfort: baseball tee. “I don’t want to look too sporty” = booties and necklace. TA-DA! That is pretty much all the planning I do. I get out of the shower and think about how I feel or who I want to be that day. 5 minutes later, I am out the door.

CHOIES WISH LIST

Choies

I was introduced to Choies a few weeks back when my fellow Spaniard Estefania featured one of their fabulous dresses, and I have been hooked since. I love how many styles they carry, how unique they are and (yes, you guessed it right) their prices are fantastic! If I  could get everything I like from their site, I’d probably start with these items. I won’t be needing that coat in Miami, but it is so dreamy that I would still get it for potential trips to Wisconsin or New York. Obviously, I had to pick a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, because I live in those!

What’s your favorite? Did I mention that they offer free shipping with all purchases?

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweater: Old Navy (thrifted); Skirt: Zara (old); Boots: Fergalicious by Fergie; Leg Warmers and Bracelets: Sira&Mara

Happy Monday, everybody! I do not know if I have confessed this to you yet, but I love Mondays (I guess this is another way of me always trying to go against the current..LOL). Temperatures are veryyyyyyyyyyy slowly cooling down in Miami, and every now and then you can wear a light sweater like this lovely one from Old Navy that I bought from my friend Theresa’s closet. As you know, I’m all about accessories, and no matter how simple my outfit is, 99% of the time there is something fun happening on my feet. This time is no exception. These boots paired with leg warmers were exactly what I needed to make THE outfit.

Thanks for stopping by!
