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

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.

Inspire Me: Accessories for every occasion.

Hi Gurus,

This week we’ll be talking about accessories. I think it is so important to accessorize our outfits since it gives our outfits a big twist and make them look super chic by just adding some key pieces into it.

Accessories were present in every runway: DSquared2, Gucci, Balmain, Balenciaga, Tory Burch
(just to name a few), they were essential to make the outfit unique and full of style.

You can go from day to night in a glimpse of an eye – The good thing is that accessories are so easy to carry on your bag or purse that you can go from day to night by just changing your necklace, earrings, bracelets and adding some lipstick.

We recommend:

  • Chained  necklaces.
  • Black & gold watches.
  • Snake bracelets and rings.
  • Chandelier earrings.
  • Cat-eye or circle-shaped sunglasses.
  • Boho or cavalry hats.

Go ahead, sparkle your outfit with accessories and remember it is very important that you feel confident and comfortable in what you are wearing.

Here are some pictures I will like to share with you since I used them as inspiration for this week’s posts on: how, when and what accessories to wear.

Ale García
