LookBook: Casual Chic Striped Dress

  I had Katie's baby shower to attend on Saturday and looked for a casual chic outfit.  Knowing Katie and her sisters who have a great style sense I knew everyone was going to be looking sharp and I wasn't wrong, I hope she shares some of the pics from the shower with me so you guys can see how stylish and pretty everyone was dressed and how absolutely fabulous her shower was!!!  This was my choice for the day:Dress and belt Ann Taylor, sandals Tory Burch, bag Prada, sunglasses Ray-ban wayfarer Beijos,

Recently I discovered a great gal who makes the most intricate hair styles seem a breeze and since I get asked to do tutorials on my hair do's I think is a good idea to share my newest find with you all!! (tutorials are not my forte! I'm still trying to work on it) I apologize if she's already super famous as I don't have much time to browse but I really felt in love with the girl! Hope you like it as well ;)[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEpBXz9WHoo?fs=1]Beijos,

LookBook: Neutro Total

Back from a break....again ;) Today's look is a basic neutral and a sophisticated yet soft sub from the black and white looks. Shades of gray paired with shades of nude always go well no matter the occasion. I adore this look not only because the dress was a birthday gift from my fashionista friend Isabela Paim but because the silhouette is so boho and flowy but it becomes instantly chic and put together with a tailored little blazer!   Ideas to try: 1. Play with different lengths and try a nude mini-skirt with a gray maxi-cardie 2. Super high nude pumps will take the look straight to a night of partying, along with pulling up the sleeves of the jacket 3. This look works best with a smoky eye and nude lips. If it's too hot out I…

LookBook: Whites!

Great sunny day to go shopping with dear bro! A white look with camel accents is the perfect summer chic ensemble ;)Try crisp white top and bottom and play matchup with the belt and shoes, the shades of camel don't have to match perfectly but everything needs to be in harmony to look great, I would recommend a camel or white handbag as well!!

LookBook: Refreshing Pop of Color!

It was one of those cold and overcast days of spring when I had the chance to wear my skinnies with my new Zara yellow tweet jacket! I was meeting with a client but wasn't scheduled to work that day, so I could afford to wear more casual clothes but in a professional looking way. Think office casual, you want to wear your jeans but not look like it's the weekend  already. Keep the look pulled together pairing a cute tailored jacket. Accessorize, that's the ultimate wild card for spring! You can possibly wear the same outfit several times and keep the look fresh by accessorizing differently every time.Transform this look in an evening outfit by switching to heels and wearing stronger make up. Also unzip the bottom part of the jacket to make it…

LookBook: Mini balloon-skirt dress with open back!

 I got this cutie at H&M Chicago a couple of weeks ago. So sad this kind of dresses never make it to the Indy stores, what's up with that?! Frustrations aside I'm happy I got it...not only it compliments the shades of my new hair style ;P but it goes a long way when changing the accessories and pulling the hair up in a bun. It's a special little dress for an even specialer price! This time I wore with a long tan leather belt (I love when the belt is long enough to tie at the end, it adds a little something something!!) from Ann Taylor and a pair of green textured leather heels from Ralph Lauren (both items are from past seasons, sorry!) but I also put it on with a deep brown…
