How to Wear a Jumper This Season

There is a clothing piece that cannot be missed in your wardrobe this season. Do you know which one am I referring to? Yes, the jumper.

During the last couple of years, jumpers have become a fashion statement. They are classy, fashionable and easy to wear. And now with the sweaters dress trend, they are more IN than ever. This autumn we can see cozy sweaters, long jumpers, voluminous dresses, and sometimes everything at once. The palette of colors that predominate are navy blue, gray, violet, brown, orange, and black. And let’s not forget about prints! For those of you who are afraid to combine too many colors, prints are the solution. They allow you to wear several colors in one clothing piece.

Let’s see how to wear a jumper this season!

Since monochromatic and minimalist are a powerful trend today, I decided to keep it simple but still making a style impact. The principal clothing piece is made of wool and looks like an over-sized gray sweater that resulted in a jumper with two huge pockets on the front. It has a wide slit in the laterals, so I took a fashion risk and wore a lingerie bra underneath. I could have easily worn a white t-shirt or bodysuit, but since the jumper was so old-school, I decided to use something different in order to escape from that look and make it more trendy.

To match the lingerie bra, I wore a black lingerie choker. Chokers make us look slimmer, more stylized. That’s why I think is a great addition to this fall outfit.

For the final touch, I chose a type of black leather loafers. These shoes are avant-garde and really trendy right now. I believe they go perfect together because they have the same vintage vibe. I like to use this outfit to go to dinner with my friends, or to the mall, or even to have a couple of drinks during happy hour. It’s versatile, fashionable and comfy.

Wearing a jumper is pretty simple. They basically do all the job for us. But if you would like to make a fashion statement, then you need to think out of the box and add accessories, eccentric shoes, or belts. Wear them like you own them.

Here, I will leave you another post of how to wear a bodysuit in case you need more outfit inspo. Three different looks with just one clothing piece!

The Top Fall Fashion Trends You Need To Know About

When it comes to fall style, there aren’t off-limits trends. We all have our personal style and our comfort zone. However, this fall we should all go a little further and take some fashion risks! Trust me, it’s worth it.

During the fall runways, tons of metallic pieces, over-sized jackets, florals, velvet, and suits were presented. So many trends, so many propositions. Sometimes is difficult to know how to wear velvet jackets or how to incorporate menswear, AKA suits, into our lives.

This outfit is inspired in most of these trends. The protagonists here are the florals and the velvet jacket. Velvet is about elegance and comfort. Slim-fit velvet jackets are my favorite. However, you can wear this fabric in everything! Pants, skirts, shoes. The sky is the limit. Just remember to wear just one velvet piece per look. Otherwise, it would be too much.

To complement the jacket, I decided to wear a turtleneck basic in a cream tone. It’s neutral and gives the outfit a splendid touch. What I love the most about turtlenecks is that I can wear them with chokers or necklaces to enhance the neckline. A little tip: chokers and necklaces will make you look slimmer and taller. If you are not sure to go with a turtleneck, you can easily wear another basic.
The skirt is all about florals in navy blue and beige, which makes a great contrast with the top of the outfit. This fall, there are tons of layers and volume, and this skirt encompasses all! When wearing florals, make sure to avoid overwhelming pieces and complement the fabric with basics or neutrals.
Both florals and velvet have their own strength, and it’s important to keep it simple. Like I’ve said before, sometimes less is more.
And of course, the leather boots could not be missed. These boots make the outfit complete giving it that final fall touch.
What do you think? Would you take the risk and incorporate these fall trends?

Fall Means New Skincare Routine

Fall is around the corner, which means that soon we will see the trees changing their foliage resulting in warm tones that take over the city. Sudden, fall means new skincare routine. Why? Because the weather changes and the temperature drops. Now, our skin is more likely to get dry and peel.

This is why I wanted to share with you my new skincare routine. A few weeks ago, a skincare line called Lumion caught my attention. I researched the ingredients, checked the reviews and testimonials of people who have used it and finally decided to try it.

I have a combination of oily and dry type of skin, so for me it’s hard to find a product that hydrates my skin without leaving a greasy feeling on my face. But Lumion is capable of cleaning and hydrating my face at the same time. And the reason why is because of its components.

Lumion’s products only use three ingredients: electrolyzed oxygenated water, sodium chloride, and hypochlorous acid. You may be wondering how am I talking about hydration if Lumion’s main component is water? Well, there is a secret that the electrolyzed oxygenated water entails. It delivers oxygen to the skin  increasing hydration! And the remaining two ingredients are antibacterial, which means that they protect the skin against environmental contaminants.

My Fall Skincare Routine

First, we need to clean our face. I use a detoxifying cleanser from Boscia. This is a warm gel cleanser that dissolves impurities and refines the skin texture. The cleanser is like a mask: creamy and thick. It does not irritate nor dry the skin. I really recommend it.

Then, the next step is applying the Lumion Serum. I splash two pumps on my hand and apply it to my face and neck. This serum increases balance and moisture my skin. The final touch is the Lumion mist. I just close my eyes and splash the mist all over my face. I use this product several times during the day: after exercising, to seal my makeup and in the morning.

This to-go mist is also perfect for airplanes. We all know that when we are in an airplane it is not recommended to wear makeup because of the environmental conditions. But this Lumion product helps the skin to remain clean and sooth thanks to the hypochlorous acid. Definitely is a must in our purse!

The reason why I love these products is because they are really natural and don’t irritate my skin. When I apply a cream or serum on my skin, I am really careful with the ingredients. If you don’t know the ingredients or if you cannot even pronounce the word, it is worthwhile to do a little research.

These products are budget friendly and can be found online. I bought my cleanser in Sephora and the Lumion’s products in the brand’s website.

Let me know if you have any questions regarding the routine or the products. I would be more than happy to help you! This space is both yours and mine!

4 Do-it-yourself Makeovers

Do you remember when I told you that Mondays are for fresh starts? Well, what about if we begin with ourselves? Nowadays, we women tend to feel that we don’t look pretty enough, or that we have gained weight, or we simply are bored of our physical appearance. But let me tell you something. Even when you feel that way, you are still beautiful. You may only need a little improvement or something that highlights your natural beauty.

That’s why today I bring you 4 ways to do a complete makeover! These budget-friendly tips can be easily applied in the comfort of your home, and as a result, you will feel confident and beautiful again!

Let’s begin!

1. Get some GLOW!

Shiny hair is one of the best attributes a woman can have. If you are looking to make a subtle but nice change to your hair, the John Frieda Clear Shine Luminous Glaze is the answer (you can purchase it at Walmart for $7.49)! Use it after applying your shampoo. It works quickly and lasts approximately a week. I recommend to use it with moderation because contains silicon.

2. Add a little makeup! 

I have always been the type of girl who thinks that less is more when it comes to makeup usage. In my opinion, makeup should be used to enhance your natural beauty, not to make you look like somebody else. You can apply illuminator on your cheek bones, nose, and upper lip to highlight your facial features. Also, I’m a true believer that mascara and eyelash curlers are the best tools to make your eyes pop up! Finally, add a different color of lips to your palette. This will make you look different and give your outfit a nice touch.

3. Back to basics!

One of the latest trends in nail beauty is the usage of acrylics with a triangular shape. Also, the glitter and nail art are widely used these days. I must say that I’m not a fan of this trend, I rather get a manicure on my own nails. I believe that classic colors like nude, red wine tones and French style look more elegant and sophisticated. So maybe once in a while, we can alternate between both to get a fresh a look.

4. Change your skincare routine!

Most times we stick to one line of products to clean our skin, and that’s totally fine. The problem is when we use the same routine for a skin that has developed other necessities. By this, I mean that weather changes, hormones, our period, are factors that can alter the appearance of our skin. So once in a while, it’s recommendable to get a skincare analysis and see in which conditions our skin is. There are websites such as SkinCarebyAlana and Kielh’s that do skin analysis for free! And if you are feeling creative and looking for natural and organic skincare products, take a look at How to Make Your Own Skincare Routine at Home. I made a step-by-step guide explaining you everything!

Feel free to add comments or ideas of different makeover tips! I would love to hear what you think.

Beauty wasn’t born in an operating room; you were born beautiful. Your beauty is a reflection of yourself. NEVER FORGET THAT.

If you want to reinvent yourself one day, just do a natural makeover!

A Stylish Way to Wear The Bell Sleeve Trend

Aren’t you in love with the bell sleeve trend and all its variations? Me too! I think is because it’s retro but at the same time feminine and chic. The one that I am wearing today it’s more like a tiered-bell-sleeve blouse in a pastel blue. As I have told you before, pastel colors, retro trends, and movement are all IN this summer.

We can also expect to see this trend in pants. Instead of having a skinny end, the pants open at the bottom with a wide boot forming the bell shape. If you would like to get a better idea of how they look like, check out this spring post that I published a few months ago.

Getting back to business,  let’s see today’s marvelous outfit!

IMG_0937 (1).jpg

First of all, we have a white pompous skort from Akira boutique with a tiered bell sleeve blue blouse. This skort has two layers giving volume and movement to the look. Also, it’s high waist and outlines the figure. This clothing piece is pretty versatile. We can create a casual outfit by combining it with a denim cropped top or a more formal one by wearing a floral blouse or a bell sleeve shirt like I am doing it.

The Zara’s tiered-bell-sleeve blouse is the protagonist of this outfit. It has two strips that must be tied from behind forming a bow – cute detail. The blue pastel color of the blouse allows us to combine it with lots of clothing. I have worn it with floral pants, jeans, and white trousers. I have even worn it for work! Now, it’s time to play with accessories!

Accessories can make a huge difference in an outfit. They can transform a very simple look into an extravagant, breathtaking one. Here, I wore a pair of gold and silver long earrings because the neckline of my blouse it’s closed and tight. Otherwise, I would have chosen a necklace.

Since the palette of colors includes pastel tones, this outfit is better for events with day light, or it could also work for a happy hour in Brickell. It’s Thursday, so I think I will go for the second option!

Stay tuned because next week I will share the details of Miami Swim Week!

Denim & Street Style

Hello, hello!

I don’t know if you have realized but maxi dresses and maxi skirts are taking the streets. More than that, the denim trend is still IN and it has many variations. Jean skirts are everywhere this summer, and I must admit that I’m obsessed with that trend. I find it super chic and easy to wear.

IMG_0009

Guess what? The outfit that I prepared for you today has a denim maxi skirt! The moment I saw this fabulous skirt, I fell for it. I loved the triangular opening in the center, best part… it’s high waist! Sounds too good to be true, right? hahaha but it’s true. Promise! Then, I combined it with a wine violet bodysuit with a low cut in the back. The nicest detail of this piece is the little aperture that has at the bottom.

Getting into the accessories. I chose a pair of Katherine Cordero’s earrings and a classic brown belt to make some contrast. Katherine Cordero’s jewelry is one of a kind. She makes hand-crafted pieces with a cultural background. If you don’t know her work, don’t worry. I will tell you every single detail of her career and her collections in a new category that I’m planning to open SOON.

For the shoes, I chose a pair of gray wedges to make an entrance from bottom to top. This type of heels is a great to enhance the appearance of the legs. They make the legs look toned.

I like this outfit because it’s casual and different. The contrast between the dark colors and the light denim is visually appealing and attracts attention immediately. I hope you find it inspirational and come up with different street style outfits!

Be creative, girls! Never forget that. The sky is the limit!
