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!

Let me know what you think!

Miami Spice Just Arrived

I am eager to tell you that Miami Spice just began! Every year in the months of August and September, the most trendy and exquisite Miami restaurants offer a three-main-course menu featuring popular dishes at reduced prices. The brunch and lunch cost $23 and dinner $39.

There are more than 200 restaurants participating in the Miami Spice.

How can you make the best decision and try the most delicious dishes?

I have created a list of the top 3 restaurants that are worth to visit for the three occasions: brunch, lunch, and dinner. Let’s take a look at them!

SeaSpice

I have always been a fan of this place because of its fun atmosphere! Sunday brunches in Sea Spice are a day party that never stops. However, this time I went for the food. Let’s check what I ordered.

For the appetizers, we had the tomato and yellow pepper gazpacho, and the plantains wrapped in bacon filled with chorizo. Yes, you read well. Filled with CHORIZO. My boyfriend is a food lover; he just loves to try new things and experience different flavors. That’s why he chose the plantains. And guess what? They tasted incredible! The sweet and salty combination was delicious. He likes to call it the newer version of dates wrapped in bacon – an iconic appetizer of the Pubbelly Station. They both have that bittersweet contrast but with a different texture.

For the main platter, we both had the truffle ravioli with gorgonzola and pear. This combination is one of my favorites in the world. It’s like an explosion of flavors melting in my mouth. The rich aroma of the cheese and pears was hard to resist. Together, they produce a taste unlike any other.

The size of this plate is a little small. Ravioli servings usually have five to six pieces. But with dessert, you should be satisfied. We had a peach and champagne cold cake, and a mango mouse with a touch of basil and crumbled cookies on top. Both of them were a delicious selection. Our favorite was the mouse!

SeaSpice participates in the Miami Spice in the following days. For brunch, Saturdays and Sundays. For lunch and dinner, from Tuesdays to Fridays.

Komodo

Komodo features an Asian-modern-fusion cuisine with outdoor eateries and a Brickell-type nightlife experience. This delicious restaurant participates in the Miami Spice from Mondays to Fridays for lunch and dinner.

For the lunch menu, Komodo offers five appetizer options which include edamame, shrimp tempura, and watercress and calamari salad. I recommend the colorful salads. They are both refreshing and full of flavor; perfect for the summertime in Miami.

For the main entree, my two favorite options are the salmon bowl with kale and red quinoa, and the tahini chicken with peppers and peanuts. Since I am a salmon lover and a fan of the Asian cuisine, this bowl blew my mind. However, the tahini sauce with the peanut touch made this chicken one in a million. They are both mouthwatering selections, especially for those who like this type of season.

Since the hot weather in Miami is more powerful than ever, gelato is always a good option for dessert. The texture was soft and creamy. It comes in three different flavors: green apple, blueberry, and raspberry.

Kiki On The River

Located in the Miami Downtown area, this modern-greek-cuisine restaurant offers a wide selection of mouthwatering dishes and an amazing view of the river to be enjoyed from its garden-like setting with a glass of wine. Kiki participates in the Miami Spice from Monday to Friday at dinner time and changes its menu every week.

For appetizers, the restaurant offers both cold and hot dishes with five different options. Since I went with my boyfriend, we got to choose two appetizers. He chose the marinated octopus, and I chose the Greek grilled cheese platter with a side of salad. The octopus was tender and grilled to perfection; its flavor was out of this world. I highly recommend it. On the other side, the cold appetizer was tasty and refreshing. As you may know, Greek cheeses have a strong flavor and hard consistency. This exquisite selection combined with the raw veggies made this plate, one to remember.

For the main course, we had the t-bone savory lamb steak and the roasted rosemary chicken with spices. I must say that my favorite was the lamb. Cooked medium, tasted delicious with lemon roasted potatoes. The chicken was also a good selection. The Mediterranean touch gave it an amazing flavor.

We had pistachio baklava for dessert – one of my boyfriend’s favorite. The puff pastry was crispy and sweet. The last layer was full of pistachio and melted caramel. And yes, it tasted as good as it sounds. If you are a fan of Mediterranean cuisine and romantic views, Kiki on the river is MUST visit!

 

I hope you like it, and I encorague you to enjoy of this annually event! Great food cannot be missed!

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!

Miami Swim Week 2017

Miami Swim Week 2017 is here!

On Friday, July 21st, Silvia Ulson introduced her 2018 collection to the public at the W on South Beach, Miami. This resort collection included the denim trend that I have mentioned in the past, as well as high-waist swimsuits in silver, gold, and navy blue.

The Brazilian designer played with fabrics made of different materials such as crochet. Most of the swimsuits were one piece with pronounced necklines, and the models had head wraps with fruit details. Also, the models wore pink and red sandals with long laces intertwined resembling gladiators. The entire look was an amazing vision.

Another of my favorite collections in Miami Swim Week 2017 was KOA’s collection. This brand presented two-piece and one-piece basics in dark, nude, and pale pink tones. The fashion show began with a model wearing a bikini featuring sea shells as the top piece, while other two models pretended to be mermaids swimming in the W’s pool. The following designs were bikinis with V necklines, one-piece swimsuits with floral fabrics, and classic triangular bikinis in a dark green.

The last show of the night was KAOHS. KAOHS models looked like combat warriors wearing long fishnets and military boots. This collection was all about risky swim pieces in bright colors such as yellow, blue, red, and pink. The high-waist bikinis and V deep bottoms were the protagonists of the night. These are some of the most trendy features in swimwear right now, and we will see them everywhere next summer!

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.

IMG_0976.jpg

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!

IMG_0906

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.

IMG_9973

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!
