Hola México!

Top: H&M / Pants: Quinn / Shoes: Forever21 / Necklace: Serendipia / Bag: Zac Posen

Finally back in Mexico! Actually, first time for me in Mexico city which is way different than the north. Feels so good to, after some chaos, get away and enjoy the simple things in life for a couple of days: Nice weather, delicious food and a good outfit without layers!
I love the fact of mixing oversized sweaters with sandals - it is about keeping the outfit interesting and not so cliché. When you have weather around the 60's it is a must to play around with it. 

Love,

Oversize it all

The lower the temperature the higher the boots - that is my new motto. Also, the chunkier the sweater… definitely. My skin and body never got use to the extreme low temperatures in the city - no matter how many layers or heat-patches I wore, the cold got me every single time. Thank God for the extra thick modern fabrics! I am amazed that in situations like Fashion Week, no matter the rain, snow or dry-cold air, people will still managed their ways to look fabulous! I personally thought in keeping myself warm, I even had to grab an ultra hot cup of coffee every time and even with that I got compliments - who would've known even coffee could be an accessory. Only in New York. 
Luckily I ran away from the cold and came back home - no more layers for a while yet I definitely left a part of me under that snow.

Home is where the heart belongs - I strongly believe in that. No matter what you do or where you do it, sooner or later if its meant to be you will always find your way back. Even as my dad says: "A star will always shine no matter from where you see it." 

Love,

Uphill battle, I look good when I climb
I'm ferocious precautious
I get crackadotious, I'm not gonna stop
I like the view from the top

You talk that
Blah blah that la la, that rah rah sh
And I'm so done, I'm so over it
Sometimes I mess up, I eff up, I hit and miss
But I'm okay, I'm cool with it

I still fall on my face sometimes and I
Can't color inside the lines 'cause
I'm perfectly incomplete
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I
I wanna hang with the greatest gotta
Way to go, but it's worth the wait, no
You haven't seen the best of me
I'm still working on my masterpiece

In honor of Valentine's Day which is around the corner, I wanted to write this post. Even though my Valentine's is a couple miles away from me right now, it doesn't mean I have to stay home in PJ's, drinking wine and watching Netflix… well, that sound like a great plan BUT it is also a day to celebrate friendships.  
As I mentioned a blog before, after-college life is when you start meeting people of your own - those who understand how bad you need a glass of wine at 3pm, those who laugh with you even though they don't get the joke (language barriers,) tell you what shoes to wear with an outfit you thought you would never try, those who would tell you how crappy you look and glam you up in the moment and most importantly, those who are there to listen to your struggles because they might be going through the same. Joel, from Moorehisstyle.com is definitely one of those friends… can't you tell? I feel so blessed to have people like him in my life and I have a feeling these friendships are going on forever.

To all my fashionable-new-life-lasting friends: I LOVE YOU & Happy Valentine's Day!

Love,
S

Hey WA!

Blazer: H&M / Sweater: Quinn / Jeans: AG Jeans / Shoes: Zara / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

This weekend was one of the best. Having a getaway weekend is always a good idea - even if it's only a few hours away, like Washington DC. Trust me, it makes a huge difference. You know when you are so focus in something that suddenly when you escape for a tiny bit you realize it was a solo-time you actually needed? That is exactly how it was. 
Washington is a small town full of diversity, breath-taking monuments and museums, and extremely clean streets. It was a totally getaway from my beloved New York and I'm so happy I had the chance to visit and share it with my friends. 
It is always a good idea to getaway, clear your mind, learn about culture, smile, and of course, dress for the occasion!
Love,
S
