Boga México

Top & Shorts: Zara / Shoes: BCBGeneration / Bag: Zac Posen / Sunnies: Nastygal

I'm so happy to announce my collaboration Boga Mexico! This new online fashion magazine invited me to be part of their columnists sections which I was delighted to be part of. I took this great opportunity to explain more about my life and the real meaning behind The Street Styler and the not-so-glamorous yet intriguing world of fashion. 
The photos that I included in the article were taken by the amazing photographer Pepe Almazan during his visit to New York City. I went for a feminine-chic look that matched the streets of Soho, my favorite area in the city. 
Read the article here: http://bogamexico.com/sara-castillo/ yes, I'm even more happy that I could write an article in spanish again! Hope you enjoy it. 

From the bottom of my heart, thank you Boga Mexico for the amazing opportunity and to Pepe Almazan Photography for the collaboration (wait to see more of our shoot on the blog!) 

Love,
S

All About The Fur

Sweater: Zara / Jeans: Courtshop / Booties: Forever XXI / Clutch: BCBGMaxazria / Sunnies: Gucci / Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC

Finally is starting to feel like a real winter, which means pulling out all the chunky sweaters and socks. 
For somebody like me that is used to temperatures above 100's, this is an interesting experience. With the first cold day (which was nothing compare to is what's yet to come) not even layering all my light-weight pieces was enough. 
One thing is going on vacations to Colorado, enjoying the snow and the outdoor activities to come back to your cozy cabin, put on your cashmere pajamas and enjoy a nice cup of hot coco by the fire... well, that just lasts for a couple of days and does NOT happen in our everyday lives so, I definitely need to start working on my real winter essentials. 
Chunky sweaters, fur and boots, that's what comes to my mind. This cute navy sweater with fur on the sleeves is one of my favorites. Not only is appropriate for day-to-night but it is actually really warm in the inside!
Sunday walks around South Street Seaport are becoming my favorite, and now next to my photographer Jessie I will be able to bring you more breathless sights in the city that never sleeps. 

Love,
S

Fuerza Rosa

Lately I've been wearing too much pink. Not the bright pink color that makes your eyes hurt but the soft, girly, pretty pink. Maybe it's my inner girly-girl but I thought in doing a quick post with this outfit to remember  you all about October as our Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We all know it as the pink power month to create awareness but it is also about taking action and prevent this disease. 
Even though you may not have a relative fighting against breast cancer, you know a friend of a friend, and I truly believe that's enough reason to have the motivation to fight. We all dream of a better world so people like you and me live happy, but the only way to make it happen is by taking action and have the willingness to help.

Piperlime & Moments of Chic

Skirt: Piperlime Collection / Top: Lanston by Piperlime (similar here) / Boots: Candies / Bag: Zac Posen / Sunnies: H&M / Hat: ASOS 

I’m so happy to announce my first collaboration with Piperlime - Moments of Chic!
Living in a city like New York is always about being comfortable yet making a statement. Yes, it is the tricky challenge of everyday.
No matter how glamorous or extravagant your life is, you have to make your #ootd comfy for the streets. Trust me, is never as glamorous as it seems. Lucky for me, Piperlime  gave me the perfect outfit for me. I was excited when I got my package, not only because pastels are my favorite colors, but this blush midi skirt is right on time for the season. Enough of skinny jeans for a while - There’s always a way to make that summer-fall transition appropriate in a blush skirt. 
In this case, for a Sunday morning walking around South Street Seaport, I wore my Piperlime long sleeve top and midi skirt accessorized with my studded silver necklace, camel booties and my favorite black fedora hat to give what I call a bohemian-girly-girl vibe.
As the Moments of Chic phrase would say, is all about making every day and every occasion a moment of chicness, a moment to remember – and since I couldn’t agree more, I am very excited to be part of such a beautiful collaboration.
Thank you Piperlime for making me part of your #momentsofchic and for the fabulous outfit! How do you dress for a moment of chic?

Love,
