La temperatura había bajado considerablemente, era una tarde perfecta para salir a caminar, tomarme un café y encontrarme con unos buenos amigos. Así que me pusé mis Vans más cómodos, mi abrigo preferido de media manga y una bufanda ligera para salir a conquistar el día. Entre risas, tazas de café y uno que otro bocado, se me fue el tiempo y ya era hora de atender al compromiso de la noche.

No me iba a dar tiempo de pensar en otro outfit completamente diferente, así que decidí quedarme con la misma camisa y pantalón del Casual Mood que publiqué la semana pasada, cambiando sólo un par de elementos para verme un poquito más formal. Así de fácil pueden cambiar un look drásticamente.

Entonces, si están buscando inspiración de cómo pueden crear sus looks de otoño, y cómo combinar diferentes outfits con las mismas piezas, aquí les dejo mi segunda propuesta de la temporada: The Booties Mood.

  1. Botas: Forever21. Les puedo asegurar que son uno de los zapatos más cómodos del mundo, sí, Forever21 tiene botas muy cómodas, jajaja. Decidí usarlas porque el look era muy gris y quise darle un toque de color. Además como son altas le agregan una chispa de elegancia.
  2. Chaqueta: H&M, esta es de hace un par de años, pero la amo con todo mi ser, porque calienta bastante y tiene mucha personalidad.
  3. Cartera: Vanessa Boulton. Es una diseñadora venezolana, tiene cosas muy bellas. Todavía no tienen envíos internacionales, pero para todas las que están en Caracas, pueden comprarlas Online o en Beco.
  4. Jeans: Old Navy
  5. Camisa: Calvin Klein.

Seguiré publicando Moods de otoño, así que ¡estén súper atentos!

 

The weather changed really fast, and the temperature went down. So, it was the perfect day for an afternoon walk and some coffee with the coolest friends. I put my Vans on, grabbed my favorite Sweater, a comfy scarf, and went out. After some walking, a couple of coffee drinks and so much fun, I didn’t realize how late I was to my next plan.

 

I didn’t have enough time to create a whole new outfit, so I decided to wear the same shirt and jeans (The ones from my last’s week post, Casual Mood) but alternating a couple of elements. Those 3 details I changed were good enough to have a new look, more ideal for the plan I had.  That easy you can drastically change your look.

So, If you’re looking for Fall’s inspiration, and how to style several looks with the same pieces and different layers, here’s my second look of the season: The Booties Mood

  1. Boots: Forever21. You have NO idea how comfortable they are. Forever21 can surprise you with the quality of some of their shoes.  I decided to wear them because the look was a little bit dark and I needed to light it up with some color to pop up the mood.
  2. Jacket: H&M. I love this jacket with all my heart. It looks really cute and it warms up a lot! I totally recommend the brand for jackets and coats.
  3. Bag: Vanessa Boulton.
  4. Jeans: Old Navy
  5. Blouse: Calvin Klein

I’ll keep posting Fall Moods, so stay tuned!

¿Otoño? ¡¿ya llegó?! Bueno, la verdad es que no. Aún estamos en pleno sol veraniego, pero me encanta ir visualizando las tendencias que se acercan para tener un wish list preparado ¿No les ha pasado que al fin lograron comprar esa prenda que morían por tener y justo se acabó la temporada?  ¡Creo que todas hemos sufrido esto! Justamente por eso planifico o, tengo en mi top of mind esas piezas que están por adueñarse de las calles fashionisticas.

Otras de las cosas buenas de adelantarse es que puedo planificar mis compras con un budget determinado y, ¡no gasto de más! Además, este ejercicio me inspira a revisar el clóset y siempre termino encontrando aguna pieza a la que le pueda sacar provecho. Entiéndase: Puedo estar a la moda sin arruinar mi bolsillo:

Por ello, decidí compartir con ustedes mis tendencias preferidas para los próximos meses Otoño-Invierno 2017-2018. Aquí les van:

1. “When in doubt wear red”

Images: Imaxtree. Collage: StyleUrMood

Me fascina ver el rojo por todas partes. Definitivamente es el color del otoño 2017. Antes le tenia un poco de fobia. PERO, aprendí que uno puede adueñarse del color a su manera y terminar amándolo. Ahorita muero por unos Zarcillos Rojos Tassel, una Falda de Cuero o unas Botas Altas en este color.


2. Estilo oficina: Plaid, Pata de Gallo y Check.

¿QUÉ? ¿Look de oficina? SÍ y me encanta. Se ve súper elegante y va completamente con el mood de la temporada. En estos próximos meses, no puedes dejar de llevar una pieza en Plaid, Pied De Pouled (Pata de gallo) o Cuadros. Estoy segura que casi todas tenemos un par en el clóset agarrando polvo. Es el momento para que los sacudas, les eches una lavadita y los luzcas. Puedes combinarlos con un graphic tee o una blusita roja.


3. Otoño floreado

Algo que me tiene enamorada de esta temporada son las flores, y aquí, entre nos, podría usarlas todo el año, jaja. De hecho, me tranquiliza saber que mis vestidos floreados no van a quedarse en el clóset hasta la primavera que viene. Ahorita, específicamente, se ven muchos colores mostaza, burgundy, azul y verde esmeralda.

y, ustedes cuéntenme ¿Cuáles son sus tendencias favoritas para otoño? Me pueden comentar por aquí, Instagram o Facebook, en dónde también pueden compartir la publicación si les gustó.

Nos vemos en el próximo post,
Les envío mucho amor

#LocalBrands : Nostra Miami Dad Hat

Andrea's Mood, Urban Moods

Hi there my loves <3,

Last week I felt in the mood of wearing a street outfit. I was looking for something cool without losing my essence. I’m saying “without losing my essence” because I’m not always dressed in Urban Clothes, but I really like them. So, I was really into getting the whole style adapted to my wardrobe.

Also, I wanted to create a look with a local brand; the thing is, I really enjoy searching talent and trends around the area. So, I did my research and I found Nostra: High-end Street Wear Inspired and Made in Miami. After checking out their catalog, I decided to wear their Summer Vice Hat in White! A simple but incredibly awesome Dad Hat!

Nostra Miami Summer Vice  Dad Hat

A Dad Hat? You, Andrea, Really? Yes! A Dad Hat! You have no idea, this is a huge trend and, I’m loving it! I don’t know if it already happened to you, but every time I go shopping I see them everywhere! In fact, I was looking for a Dad Hat since January and, I just couldn’t decide which one to get! (Yes, I’m that picky with accessories) So, I was really happy to finally find this one! Nostra really did the job! The fabric is soft and fresh, it’s built with high-quality materials so it’s incredibly comfortable. Also, I loved how it looked, I would totally recommend it! what do you think? You can get it here!

I hope you like it!
Love you all,

Andre

4 things you should consider before buying a swimsuit!

Andrea's Mood, FashionMoods, Lifestyle Moods, Trendy Mood, Uncategorized

Last week I had this trip planned to Key West and, since it was something I’ve always wanted to do, I decided to add some flair to my beach outfit by acquiring a new bathing suit.

We all know that swimsuit shopping is a difficult task. I think it is one of the most stressful and frustrating shopping experiences. However,  it could be lighter and more fun if we consider the following tips:

1. Set a Swimsuit Budget

In general, swimsuits are not a cheap item. If you are seeking for a decent quality piece you might consider spending more than 30 bucks. If your budget is limited, avoid expensive brands, unless you know they have a sale. I don’t want you to fall in love with a beautiful one-piece swimsuit and then, suffer from a broken heart once you check the price tag. 😦

2. Remember: Just because it’s trendy doesn’t mean it’ll look good on everyone.

Yes, we like to follow trends! But, it doesn’t mean that any cool awesome trend will flatter our bodies. We need to understand our body type and, if the swimsuit model or style doesn’t work for you, just don’t buy it. You’ll lose your money and you’ll feel bad about yourself. Remember to consider your skin color as well, think about favorable tones for you. In my case, I can’t wear any light pink nor light blue, because my skin is deadly pale. I need something a little bit more vivid.

3. If you don’t feel comfortable: DON’T BUY IT.

Ok, so you passed the selection phase. Now, the fitting room challenge is on!!!!! Please, if you feel something´s wrong with the swimsuit or you just don’t feel too comfortable in it don’t get it, ’cause it won’t change [NEVER] you must FALL IN LOVE, and it should be love at first sight. ❤ ❤ ❤ If you don’t like it enough, it’s not worth it! We don’t want any regrets here.

4. If you’re shopping online, check the brand’s size chart.

If possible, try it first at the physical store. When buying online, it’s really important to follow the size chart instructions from the brand you are planning to purchase your swimsuit. Usually, online stores don’t accept returns on bathing suits, so, I highly recommend to check the measurements first. If you are getting it online because you have a coupon or discount, try to locate a store nearby and try it first. If you like it, it fits perfectly and you feel comfortable with the price, you have achieved it!!! GO FOR IT 😀

As you can see I got mine!! I’m happy with my choice:

T H E  L O O K

Swimsuit: Forever 21

Sunglasses:  Lucky Brand

Shorts: Vintage (the 50’s)

 

3 Must-Haves To Start Off Summer With The Right Foot

Andrea's Mood, FashionMoods, Trendy Mood

Hello! Summer has finally arrived, and it comes along with colorful and fun shoes. I believe my obsession with them have made me a terrible shopper. I always try to plan my closet’s acquisitions; however, I kind of forget my list, because I am really focused on heels, sandals, Platforms, etc. But, there’s always a bright side: owning a big shoe’s wardrobe means the following: You can wear the same outfit every single day, but, with a distinct pair of shoes, and the outcome will be a completely different outfit. That’s why I want to share my bucket list for this season. Also, I want you to know where you can find beautiful models at an affordable price. My mission here is to increase our shoe’s collection together, without ruining ourselves!

So, Are you ready to build up our summer shoe’s shopping list?

GREAT!! LET’S BEGIN.

Platforms, Embroidered, Glittered, Metallic, Velvet, you name it. They all make us fall in love.

Imagine a magic world where you could look like a princess without being uncomfortable. that’s exactly what happens when you’re wearing espadrilles. Or at least that’s how I feel about them. You’ll look chic, trendy and taller and there’s no need of cinderella’s glass shoes. This season comes along with pink, yellow and pastels.

Boyfriend T-shirt + dress. Is that happening?

Andrea's Mood, FashionMoods

EN-I have NO idea if this trend is happening or not, but let me tell you something, I LOVE mixing flirty and happy dresses with a boyfriend T-shirt. It makes me feel so comfortable and it also looks really cool. You know, it gives you like a careless mood but you still get the chance to look cute, I mean, you are wearing a dress.

Wanna know how this happened? I LOVE skirts, specially flared ones, with those cool and colorful prints. But, back in Venezuela I didn’t find the opportunity to wear them, or maybe I didn’t take the risk to. SOO, I had a sunday lunch, it was really hot and I wasn’t in the sticky jeans nor pants mood, but I didn’t have any skirts I absolutely loved. Immediatly I saw this dress, which I bought a couple of days ago on a Vintage Store, right next to my favorite everyday T-shirt and KABOOM!!! I heard magic stylists voices in my mind saying: TRY THEM, and I did. Since then it’s a trend for me.

 

ES-La verdad es que no he visto tanto esta tendencia, pero déjenme decirles algo, ME ENCANTA combinar vestidos alegres con una camiseta gigante tipo Boyfriend. Me siento comodísima y además luce super cool. Es que te da como ese look desenfadado pero sigues viéndote coqueta. Estás usando un vestido, no hay forma alguna de no verse linda usando estampados y colores primaverosos!

Entonces, quieren saber cómo llegue a este look? les cuento, me encantan las faldas!! me fascinan, sobre todo las que son como acampanadas y estampadas. Pero, por alguna razón no conseguía la oportunidad de utilizarlas cuando vivía en Venezuela,  o capaz no tomaba el riesgo, no sé por qué. Entonces, hace unos días tenía un almuerzo y no sabía qué usar porque no era tan formal, y el calor era infinito. No tenía intenciones de utilizar pantalones o jeans, y en el momento no tenía ninguna falda que me dijera “por favor úsame” (Diantres, era el momento perfecto para una falda). De inmediato ubiqué este vestido, que compré hace poco en un vintage store, justo alado de mi franela favorita para todos los días y BOOM!!! escuché las voces estilistas, que suelen aconsejarme en momentos de crisis, diciéndome: PRUEBA ESTO YA. Desde entonces se ha convertido en una tendencia para mi.
