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.

What to wear – 10 trends you’ll love

Hello,

As we approach December it reminds me that the year 2013 is coming to an end and that finally, after so much sacrifice and effort, I’ll be graduating from Marketing which translates to some incredible and interesting projects (I’ll tell you about them some time soon). But on the other hand, it reminds me that the holiday season is about to begin which means endless parties and the need to count with the right outfit for every occasion. This time I searched through all those fall trends and selected the ones I loved the most as well as those I think you may like.

So now I leave you with some of fall’s 2013 hottest trends as well as some of my favorite clothes and fashion items from fall’s most important runways so you can wear this season.

Which one’s your favorite?

xx,

Alejandra García

Hola, 

A medida que nos acercamos a diciembre, me recuerda que el año 2013 está por terminar y que por fin, después de tanto sacrificios y esfuerzos me graduaré de la carrera de Mercadotecnia, lo cual traerá muchos proyectos y trabajos por delante que después les contaré. Pero por otra parte, me recuerda a que la temporada de fiestas está por comenzar lo cual significa el tener que contar con un sin fin de opciones e ideas de outfits ideales para cada ocasión. Así que en esta ocasión me di la oportunidad de buscar de todas esas tendencias del otoño, las que más creo les podrán gustar y además son ideales para cualquier ocasión en esta temporada de fiestas.

Así que los dejo con algunas de las mejores tendencias del otoño 2013 así como algunas de mis prendas favoritas de las pasarelas más importantes del otoño para que se puedan enamorar de cada una de ellas y escoger la que más les guste para esta temporada.

¿Cuál de todas es la que más te gusta?

Pastel Color Coats

Whether it’s a gray tone, a soft pink or green, even a lilac color, they will be a great choice and ideal color to wear to a day party. You will not need to have an outstanding outfit beneath since the coat itself will be the statement piece of your look. 

Fur Accessories and Coats

I have to accept I’m a huge fan of fur (faux). It adds elegance and style to your look in just one piece. I definitely recommend wearing a faux-fur coat to your night party; you’ll need no more but your coat and yourself. But in case your not that into fur, remember you can still wear this trend in a more subtle way by adding a scarf, key chain, purse, cap, even just a small part of your coat with fur. It will help you to go from day to night with just one piece.

Jumpsuit summer trends 2013 2014 fashion week

Summer Ready!

Hello followers!

Summer is one of my favorite seasons in the year (winter’s my top 1). It’s the time in the year when you can actually dress in so many ways: rompers, dresses, short-shorts, maxi-dresses, etc. Sometimes jeans get so boring that you need something fresh and chic. So this time I decided to wear one of my favorite summer garnments – the jumpsuit. Although I decided to wear it in black, you can choose bold colors like orange, blue or red, or maybe try small patterns for a retro look. Pair your jumpsuit with some wedges and large sunnies and you have your summer look. And remember WEAR A BELT, I really like how the small.chained belt looks, but if you are wider on your waist you can wear a wide belt to accentuate your figure.

Remember you can leave me a comment with your favorite summer trends.

Have an awesome week and don’t forget to stay tuned for the upcoming posts.

xx,

Alejandra García

¡Hola!

El verano es una de mis temporadas favoritas del año (invierno es mi top 1). Siempre he dicho que es el momento indicado para usar cualquier tipo de ropa: los short-shorts, vestidos, jumpers, maxi-vestidos entre otros. A veces los jeans se vuelven tan aburridos e incómodos que es necesario usar algo fresco y a la moda. Así que esta vez decidí llevar uno de mis prendas favoritas del verano – el jumper o jumpsuit. A pesar de que yo decidí usarlo en negro, puede escoger un color brillante como el naranja, azul o rojo para tu jumper o bien prueba patrones pequeños para un look retro. Agrega unas sandalias altas y unos lentes grandes a tu outfit y tienes el look perfecto para el verano. Y recuerda LLEVA UN CINTO, me encanta como se ven los cintos pequeños de cadena con este tipo de ropa, sin embargo si eres de cintura un poco ancha sólo cambia el cinto pequeño por uno más ancho para acentuar tu figura.

No olvides que puedes dejarme tu comentario con tus tendencias favoritas para el verano.

Que tengas una excelente semana y recuerda de estar al pendiente del blog ya que tendremos posts muy interesantes.

xx,

Alejandra García
