Weekend look

Hi guys!

How was the weekend?
Today I show you my look for strolling around the city, comfortable with sneakers and trench.
Although it is still cold in Madrid, the new spring collection is already in stores and I could not wait to wear this trench which is easy to combine.

Tropical Jumpsuit

Hi!! Here is a very comfortable look for today. With the hot summer weather I usually wear a jumpsuit, one piece and forget about complications of having to combine.

This jumpsuit with a tropical print is by Women’s Secret (NEW). I bought it before the sales for my trip to Mexico but maybe you can still find it at any WS store.

I recently saw Eva Gonzalez wearing this versatile jumpsuit for a presentation. Wear it to the pool with flip-flops or at night with high-heel sandals, a clutch and a jacket.

For a daytime look combine it with a crochet bag in beige and white, Ibiza style perfect for the summer months.

Dressing for a Ceremony

Hello everyone!

How was your weekend?

We’re in the wedding season, with baptisms and first communions, and this past Saturday I attended the first communion of my nephew. Here is the look that I chose.

Being a daytime ceremony, the most appropriate outfit is a cocktail dress and in Spring, best to wear soft colors, pastel, white silver, and try to avoid black in daytime events and celebrations.

I wore this dress by Angel Schlesser that combines white and silver, sleeve to the elbow and straight but adapted to the body. You can rent this dress at dresseos.com

Silver sandals from Jimmy Choo, black sunglasses by Tom Ford, and silver handbag with pailletes from Yokana.

Ethnic Style Look

One of the Spring-Summer trends is ethnic style. We have already seen this trend with clothing, decoration, art. In fashion the key characteristics are intense colors, frayed fabrics and fringes. Often fabrics or materials from Africa and India.
