Raising the Bar

Hello readers,

I’m happy to announce that this December I’m not just concluding a wonderful year but I’m also concluding my college degree, and I couldn’t be more happier. Knowing that college has ended is kind of weird, I can’t really explain this feeling, it’s a combination of self-realization and excitement. I guess that what I’ve learned from these past years is that at the end it all comes back to YOU. What you’ve done, achieved, failed, had more trouble in. And it’s until then when you understand that the competition wasn’t  between you and your colleagues but with yourself. Couple of days ago I read this quote that said “I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.”  So this year I’m not only concluding an important chapter in my life but I’m also Raising the Bar for the years to come.

To know others is wisdom, to know one’s self is enlightenment. 
– Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu

Short days, long nights

As we approach to one of my favorite seasons (well kind of my favorite time of the year) it reminds me of all my new year resolutions (2013) I’ve checked and  those still waiting for me to do. Although it seems I still have time (2 months and some days left) my schedule gets even more crowded each day. I guess that’s why I love fall and winter days because the days are short and the nights are long, leaving me with enough time to focus and do all those things I need to do for myself.

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” – Anne Bradstreet

The Overall Comeback

Hi Followers,

Lately I’ve been obsessed with overalls. Although it kinds of remind me of my childhood I have to admit I love how they look. I find them so elegant and chic I would definitely wear them to a dinner with friends, a social event or even to work. What I love about overalls is that you can add any type of accessories to it and you’ll end up looking glamorous. In this case I decided to wear a statement necklace, a simple white tank beneath it, and a cute small square-bag. Another thing that I love about this key-item is that during fall-winter season I just add a tailored-cut blazer and I’m ready to go.

I would definitely recommend wearing a one color overall like: Denim, Black, Red or Orange.

Do you like this trend? Will you wear it?

xx,

Alejandra García

Hola, 

Últimamente he tenido esta obsesión por los overoles. Aunque me recuerdan mucho a mi infancia, tengo que aceptar que amo como se ven. Los considero muy elegantes y chic por lo que definitivamente lo usaría para una cena con las amigas, un evento social o incluso para trabajar. Lo que amo de los overoles es que con tan sólo agregar un accesorio, terminas con un look muy glamuroso. En esta ocasión decidí usar un collar statement, una simple tank blanca y una pequeña-y-cuadrada bolsa. Otra cosa que amo de esta pieza clave es que puedes usarlo durante la temporada otoño-invierno, sólo le agregas un blazer corte sastre y estás lista para salir.

Definitivamente te recomiendo que elijas un sólo color para el overol, por ejemplo: Mezclilla, Negro, Rojo o Naranja. 

¿Qué te parece este trena? ¿Lo usarías?

Between summer and fall

Hi readers, I can’t believe we’re in September, time passes by so quickly…

In my world, September means three things: Vogue‘s September Issue, Fashion Week, and the beginning of autumn. Where I live the weather is still very hot but the nights start to feel a little bit chill. I like to think about it, as the perfect time to wear transitional clothing. For transitional I mean that you mix summer clothes  with fall/winter items. Today I would like to share with you my transitional outfit. I mix some short-shorts with a fall pattern, white buttoned blouse (ideal for summer or fall) and flower-pattern chunky heels.

What other pieces do you consider as transitional items?

xx,

Alejandra García

Hola, en verdad no puedo creer que ya estamos en Septiembre, el tiempo pasa tan rápido…

En mi mundo, Septiembre es sinónimo de tres cosas: el September Issue de Vogue, la Semana de la Moda y el comienzo del otoño. En donde vivo el clima sigue siendo muy caliente pero las noches empiezan a estar un poco más frescas. Me gusta pensar en este momento como el momento perfecto para usar ropa para pasar de una temporada a otra. Con esto me refiero a mezclar ropa del invierno con ciertas prendas del otoño/invierno. El día de hoy comparto con ustedes uno de mis atuendos para este momento de cambio de temporada. Combiné unos short-shorts con estampado de invierno, con una blusa blanca de botones (ideal para el invierno o verano) y unos zapatos chunky con estampados de flores.

¿Qué otras piezas consideras como ideales para esta etapa intermedia entre temporadas?

Alejandra García

 If your more into straigh hair, the silky straight hair is for you.
