A Casual but Stylish Summer Outfit


Hey there babes!

My birthday is in less than a week and I couldn’t be more excited! Usually this time of the year I get a little sad and I don’t know why. This year is different though, I’m feeling so grateful to be alive and happy of doing what I always wanted to do: this blog.

Last year, I spent my birthday away from my boyfriend and my family since I spent the whole summer in New York City. Even though those months in NYC where the best and happiest of my life, I wish I had spent it with my dearest people. But don’t get me wrong, one of my childhood friends was there too and I made great friends along the way, so I didn’t spend it all alone and I love them too!

Remembering that made me feel like crying of happiness (I’m a huge crier, btw) of how some people can open their lives and let you in. If you haven’t had the opportunity to travel by yourself, I highly recommend it; you’ll be surprised of how great people are and how much you’ll grow as a person. Maybe some day I’ll write about my NYC experiences…

Now, back to the present!

If there’s something you should know about me is that I never never NEVER buy anything if it’s not on sale. I started doing that because I hated purchasing something and find it the next week with a lower price tag. Even if it’s at fast fashion stores like Forever 21, H&M or Zara, I feel guilt from buying something full price.

This blouse was on sale at Forever 21 and besides that, it was on the buy one get one free promotion. Oh yes, at the end it cost me like $7 bucks.

I really like the mesh material and the dot details it has. Plus, give me some trendy ruffles and I’m totally in love. This is when you realize that you don’t have to spend your whole paycheck to be stylish. After all, this is the idea I had for this blog.

About the espadrilles: I always get so many compliments about them! I got them at ASOS a few months ago. They’re the best summer wardrobe addition because they are casual and comfortable yet cool enough. They have a little platform so they give you a little extra height, a lovely bow and a pretty color. I have even worn them to the beach!

Hola babes!

Estoy tan emocionada que en menos de una semana es mi cumpleaños! Normalmente, no se porqué, unos días antes de mi cumpleaños me pongo un poco triste. Pero este año es diferente, me siento muy contenta, agradecida por estar viva y estar haciendo algo que siempre quise hacer: este blog.

El año pasado estuve todo el verano en la ciudad de Nueva York, entonces pase mi cumpleaños sin mi novio y mi familia. Aunque esos meses que estuve allá fueron los mejores momentos de mi vida, me hubiera gustado celebrar con la gente que mas quiero. Tampoco me mal entiendan y piensen que la pase completamente sola, una de mis mejores amigas de la infancia y personas que conocí allá festejaron conmigo.

En este momento al recordar esos tiempos me dan ganas de llorar de felicidad, de cómo las personas pueden abrir su corazón tan fácil y considerarte amiga de toda la vida. Si no han tenido la oportunidad de viajar solas, se lo recomiendo, se sorprenderán de todo lo que aprenderán, de la gente que conocerán y de lo que crecerán como persona. A lo mejor algún día escribiré a cerca de todas las experiencias que pase en Nueva York…

Ahora a lo que venimos!

Si hay algo que tienen que saber de mi es que nunca compro algo a precio regular. Empecé a comprar cosas en oferta porque odiaba comprar algo y que la siguiente semana estuviera a mejor precio. Aún en tiendas accesibles como Forever 21, H&M y Zara me da remordimiento comprar algo a precio regular.

Esta blusa estaba en oferta en Forever 21 y aparte de eso era parte de una promoción que tenían de “compra uno y el segundo te lo llevas gratis” entonces me termino costando como $7 dólares. WUJU!

Me encanta el material de malla con los detalles de lunares, ponle unos holanes y me enamoras. Este es el momento que te das cuenta que no tienes que gastar mucho dinero para vestirte bien y a la moda.

Acerca de las alpargatas: no saben cuanto me las chulean! Estas las compré en ASOS hace unos meses. Estas alpargatas son perfectas para este caluroso verano porque aparte de ser muy cómodas, están súper a la moda. Tienen un poco de plataforma para dar un poquito de altura, un moño precioso y un color perfecto para verano.
