fashion blogger birthday

By the big 25…

It seems just like yesterday I blew out the candles for my 18th birthday. Last saturday the big 2–5 arrived so I took some time to think of what I did and learned through out these wonderful years, and today I would love to share these thoughts with you… hope you like them!

By the big 25….

1. You know how to choose your friends wisely,

2. And know that it’s not possible to keep them all.

3.  Now you know that wanting and having a relationship takes work, but it’s REALLY worth it.

4. You appreciate spending time with your family,

5. And find out your parents are cooler now than they were ten years ago.

6. But also, you know how great it is to leave home and see the world.

By the big 25….

7. You should start saving money.

8. And know that money can be a serious issue if not handled properly,

9. But also that splurging once in a while after working hard is pretty great.

10. You enjoy dressing up and attending fabulous events,

11. But you also know that staying in is as fun as going out.

12. You understand the real meaning of responsible drinking, not just for yourself, but also for others.

13. And start accepting that hangovers DO get worse over the years.

By the big 25….

14. You learn that quality is better than quantity.

15. You should know it’s okay to cry like a baby with a stupid love story or movie.

16. But that you’re old enough to speak for yourself.

17. You should know rejection is the one thing in life that makes you stronger,

18. And that you can still have some regrets even though people say “your old enough”.

By the big 25….

19. You understand the importance of saying no,

20. And that it’s okay to be selfish.

21. You now understand the real meaning of the word “confidence”,

22. And accept it is okay to not know everything,

23. You should know life is too short to worry all the time.

24. And that even strangers can make a difference in your life.

25. But most important you understand that being a quarter of a century old is really not that bad, it’s more of a blessing.

 

Sorry again for the bad quality of the photos but as I said before, I only had my iPhone.

Ale!

Weekend Getaway

Hello!

Last week was my first time in Los Cabos, and I have to admit I’m deeply in love with this place. I turned 25 last saturday and for my birthday I wanted to do what I love the most (besides from shopping), traveling. So I went to Los Cabos with my boyfriend and a couple of friends and this are some photos I took during my trip. I hope you fall in love with this view as much as I did when I was there.

And sorry for the not-so-good-quality photos but I only had my iPhone and I wanted to share with you this moment so I made this more of a on-the-go photoshoot.

Next week, I’ll be posting the photos of my birthday, so stay tuned.

xx,

Ale!

Un salto en moda y en tiempo

Hola,

Nunca había experimentado tan de cerca el dicho que dice “el tiempo vuela”. Y es que es totalmente cierto. En realidad no puedo creer que el mes de Abril acaba de terminar, que la primavera está a la mitad y el mes de Mayo acaba de comenzar.

La primavera, una temporada en donde el clima es fresco y el sol empieza a picar. En donde el traer un abrigo de piel o lana ya no es necesario, pero de alguna manera cargar con un blazer o trenchcoat sigue siendo indispensable para esas mañanas y noches frescas.

Empieza esta transición de cambiar la manga larga por la corta y de cambiar los leggings de piel por unas faldas plisadas. Y es que es la primavera, una de las mejores épocas del año para usar de todo ya que sabes que en cualquier momento el tiempo cambiará y necesitarás quitar o agregar prendas a tu outfit. Y vaya que me ha pasado. Los últimos días he tenido que combinar los shorts con los suéteres y hay veces en los que he tenido que sacar todo de las cajas de la temporada de verano para encontrar la pieza perfecta para mi look del día.

Con la intensión de que no te pase lo mismo que a mi, y no estés vuelta loca con la ropa, el día de hoy te comparto un poquito de lo que vendrá en la guía de estilo para esta temporada la cual, estaremos viendo durante las próximas semanas. Cada semana estaré compartiendo contigo outfits inspirados en cada una de las tendencias, además estaré visitando varios lugares turísticos cerca de donde vivo. De esta manera compartiré contigo las dos cosas que más disfruto: la moda y viajar.

Este es sólo un adelanto pero espero te guste lo que está por venir.

xx,
Alejandra García

Going Neutral

Hello readers,

Many women think that wearing a neautral color will outshine their look , but today I’m here to deny this.  Although neutral usually means without color, wearing a neutral color could actually be a very good choice to outstand your assets. As they say “The brighter tones could not be so bright without the neutral tones.”so by contrasting a lighter tone with a bright one, could help us bring the viewer’s eye to where we want them to look (our assets).  Colors such as beige, ivory, taupe, gray and white (including black, but this time I’m talking about the lighter tones) appear to be without color so, what’s the best way to wear this color and still outstand your assets? Well,  wear a bighter tone in the things you will like to pop-up. For example a red or orange lip, or a bright metallic shoe or bag will look great. I’ll leave it to you to decide what asset to outstand. And you know what’s best? Neutrals are a trending color for the season.

Enjoy your day!

Hola,

Muchas mujeres piensan que llevar un color neutro de alguna manera puede llegar a opacar su look sin embargo, esto no es del todo cierto. A pesar de que el neutro normalmente significa sin color, llevar un color neutro podría ser una muy buena elección si decides utilizarlo como estrategia para destacar tus atributos. Como dicen “los tonos más brillantes no podrán lograr su brillo sin la ayuda de los tonos neutros”, al contrastar un color neutro con uno brillante, podemos atraer la atención del espectador a las áreas en las que queremos que centren su atención. Colores como el beige, ivory, taupe, gris y blanco (incluyendo el negro, pero esta vez sólo hablaré de los colores claros) parecen estar sin color, así que ¿cuál es la mejor manera de usar estos tonos y seguir resaltando nuestros atributos? La respuesta está en usar un tono mucho más brillante en las cosas o áreas que queramos resaltar. Por ejemplo, un color de labios rojo o naranja, o bien una bolsa o zapato metálico se verán increíbles. Te lo dejo a ti a que decidas qué vas a querer resaltar. Y, ¿sabes qué es lo mejor de esto? Que los colores neutros son parte de los colores de tendencia en esta temporada.  Espero que este pequeño tip de color te ayude a resaltar to look.

Que tengas bonito día.

To the things that are yet to come…

2013 has come to an end and I couldn’t be more thankful for the amazing year. Although you were able to see and read (here in the blog) about several spring and fall trends for 2013, there were just few of them that really made a statement. 2013 was the year for crop tops, grunge and prints. From the checkerboard’s spring trend (like Louis Vuitton’s popular checkerboard dresses) to the eye’s  fall trend (like Kenzo’s ocular print) I could say  that prints and symbols were kind of  huge during 2013.

But what to expect for 2014? I could say that we’ll be seeing much of last year’s trends… crop tops, sport luxe, over-sized cuts, prints, leather, fur and we can’t forget pantone’s color of the year… Radiant Orchid.

What do you think will be this year’s top trend? My guesses are that the sports luxe (over-sized and boxed cuts) as well as the crop tops will make every fashionista want to workout and be in shape to be able to wear 2014’s hottest trends.
