A Quick Way to Inspire Your Monday Fashion Mood

Hello!

I’m so so sorry!! I know it’s been a while since I don’t write on the blog, and it’s not because I forgot about you but there’s been so much stuff going on at work… But I promise I’ll keep up and don’t let so much time pass by. I would really like to thank all of you who took the time to write me down the past couple of weeks asking if I had given the blog a break or why I stop posting and wanting to know when was I coming back. That meant a lot to me and it’s been the main reason I’m taking this time to keep you updated. So I’ve decided to change things a little and today I would like to start this amazing (for many, free) week with some pictures to inspire your fashion mood on Monday.

Hope you have a great week!

No Rules

Hello Followers,

Today I was reading one of my favorite fashion icon’s blog – Anna dello Russo – and concluded that her fashion advice is: do not follow fashion rules. I guess that’s why she has been known for her iconic style and everywhere she goes she wins everyone’s attention. That’s why this week I decided to follow some of her advices and chose a black ankle-boots for my summer outfit. Although some may say that boots are only for fall and winter today I state them wrong, by adding this simple but classy ankle-boot to my outfit I somehow fill it gives the whole look a strong and different feeling.

The quote that inspired today’s outfit:

Don’t match clothes and its own function:
Like rain and trenchcoat,
like snow and moonboot,
forget it the umbrella at home!”

– Anna dello Russo

¡Hola!

El día de hoy estuve leyendo el blog de una de mis fashion-icons favoritas – Anna dello Russo – y al leer sus consejos de moda concluí que su consejo en esto es: no sigas las reglas en la moda. Yo me imagino que es por esto que Anna se ha distinguido por su estilo icónico y a cada parte que va se gana la atención de todos. Por esta misma razón decidí seguir sus consejos y elegí para el look-de-verano de hoy unos botines negros. Aunque muchos dirán que los botines son sólo para el otoño e invierno, hoy quiero probarles lo contrario ya que al agregar este simple pero clásico botín a mi outfit pude levantar todo el look y hacerlo diferente.

La frase que inspiró el look de hoy:

No hagas que la ropa y su función coincidan:

Como la lluvia y un trenchcoat,

Como la nieve y las botas gruesas,

es más olvida el paraguas en casa!”

– Anna dello Russo

kristina bazan kayture and how to wear white

How to: Wear White with Kristina Bazan

Hello!

So we’re still in April and my list of fashionistas keeps on going. So I’ve decided to put Kristina Bazan’s (from Kayture) outfits as inspiration on today’s topic: how to wear white. From Geneva, Switzerland, Kristina is a 19 year old top-fashion blogger behind the renowned blog called Kayture . She started her blog back in 2011 due to her passion for the fashion industry. She decided to name her blog that way because in kindergarten she was called by the first letter of her name, back then when she lived in the USA. So she decided to use “Kay” for Kristina and “ture” which stands for couture and geniusly ended up with Kayture.

Her polished and chic style reflects her big admiration for Gabrielle Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu and Dior. Now you can understand why she dresses so chic!

I really admire the work of this blogger, handling school and a blog is not easy. That’s why I totally really agree with her when she wrote: “Destiny is for losers; it is just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen.” Being in school, having to do photoshoots every week and travelling around the world looking so chic everyday have made her one of my favorite bloggers.

Watch and learn how she wears this season’s trend: WHITE. Hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to check out her blog for more fashion tips and trends.

How are you wearing white this season? Let me know via Instagram using #wearwhite hashtag and I’ll post your pictures by the end of this week on my blog.

Xx,
Alejandra García

Hola,

Seguimos en Abril y mi lista de fashionistas sigue creciendo. Así que hoy decidí poner a Kristina Bazan como ejemplo e inspiración del tema de hoy: cómo usar el Blanco. De Ginebra, Suiza y con tan sólo 19 años, Kristina es la top bloggera de moda detrás del famosísimo blog llamado Kayture. Kristina empezó su blog en el 2011 debido a su gran pasión por la moda. Decidió ponerle ese nombre a blog debido a que cuando era pequeña y vivía en Estados Unidos, la llamaban por la primer letra de su nombre. Así que decidió juntar “Kay” de Kristina y “ture” de la palabra couture y formó Kayture.

Su estilo elegante y de alguna manera ‘limpio’ refleja su gran admiración por personas como Gabrielle Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu y Dior. Ahora podemos entender porqué se viste tan padre siempre.

En realidad admire mucho el trabajo de Kristina, el tener clases y además llevar un blog no es nada fácil. Por esto mismo me identifiqué mucho con ella cuando escribió “El destino es para perdedores, es una escusa tonta el esperar a que las cosas sucedan en vez de hacer algo para que éstas sucedan.” Llevar una vida de estudiante, tener que hacer photoshoots cada semana y además viajar por todo el mundo viéndote siempre así de chic son las razones que hacen que Kristina sea una de mis bloggeras favoritas.

Ahora solo queda ver y aprender de cómo ella usa una de las tendencias de esta temporada: el BLANCO. Espero que les guste y no olviden visitar su blog para encontrar más tips y tendencias de moda.

¿Cómo estás usando el blanco esta temporada? Házmelo saber por medio de Instagram usando el hashtag #wearwhite . Al finalizar la semana estaré publicando tu foto en mi blog.

Besos,
Alejandra García

Tip #1: Crop tops, Midi skirts, Slippers-kind flats, Shoulder bags and Gold jewelry are key pieces for spring. Just remember to that crop tops come in a variety of lenghts so pick one that when paired with a high-waist skirt or pants, shows a bit of your stomach or else one that makes you feel comfortable. It is okay to wear a blouse beneath the crop top if you don’t like to show much skin. Another way to wear this trend is by adding a blazer or denim jacket.

Tip #1: Los tops crops, faldas debajo de la rodilla, flats estilo pantuflas, bolsas que cuelgan en tu hombre y joyería de color oro son piezas claves de esta primavera. Recuerda que hay tops crop de diferentes largos, así que asegúrate de escoger uno que al usarlo con una falda o pantalones a la cintura deje ver sólo un poco de tu abdomen o bien escoge una en la que te sientas cómoda. Si eres de las personas que no les gusta mostrar mucha piel, usar una blusa debajo de tu top crop podría ser tu solución. Otra forma de llevar esta tendencia es agregándole un blazer o chamarra denim.
