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. 

 

xx,

Ale!

Floral-Royal Blue

Hello readers,

It was a rainy day. I know it’s kind of funny how this spring-almost-summer weather is kind of crazy. But this day, it was a rainy day. Gray, chill and humid. Meaning my hair was all over the place, I was a little bit cold, and I needed something bright to bring that warmth back to me. So, while looking through my closet I found this perfect skirt. Although I bought it some time ago I love that it still looks fashionable: it’s a high-waist, pencil skirt with a floral print and a beautiful royal blue color popping out. Which I adore! To calm that crazy hair of mine, I did a low ponytail with a deep-part (it reminded me of my childhood) but it was so easy to do and it looks so clean that I loved it. I added a red lipstick and a mustard clutch and got this floral-royal blue look. I guess I know what colors I’ll be wearing this summer.

Summer Black

Hello readers,

When we think of summer and fashion, the first thing that will come to your mind might be white. Being the warmest season of the year, there’s nothing more one will want to wear but a breezy, light, white dress-shirt, shorts or pants. But this time I wanted to prove it wrong… okay we’re still not in summer but this outfit will definitely work for summer days too.

For today’s outfit I decided to pair my one-piece, BCBG Max Azria, black jumpsuit with some chunky Steve Madden Glendael sandals. And with the amount of heat going around these days, I thought some tinted aviator sunglasses might help me to keep out the rays from my eyes and add sassiness to my look. Don’t forget to add a multi chain necklace for a sharp look.

So don’t be scare of wearing black in summer, you’ll find out that a LBD or a short-jumpsuit like this one will be so comfortable to wear and will benefit you in two ways: you’ll look sleeker and tanned.

Xx,

Alejandra García

Hola,

Podríamos decir que cuando uno piensa en moda y verano, lo primero que se te viene a la mente es el color blanco. Siendo la temporada más caliente del año, no hay otra cosa que uno va a querer usar más que un vestido, short, pantalón o blusa ligera, airosa y blanca. Pero en esta ocasión quise demostrarte que no siempre es así… bueno okay, creo que todavía no estamos en verano pero como quiera este outfit definitivamente funcionará para el verano también.

Para el outfit del día de hoy decidí usar un jumpsuit de una pieza color negro de BCBG Max Azria y unos zapatos chunky de Steve Madden. Siendo un día tan caluroso pensé que usar unos aviator sunnies tornasoleados me podrían ayudar a mantener mis ojos protegidos de los rayos del sol y además obtener un look muy sassy. Y no olvides agregar un collar de cadenas grandes para obtener un look imponente.

Así que no tengas miedo de usar negro en verano, te darás cuenta que un LBD o un jumpsuit corto como el que traigo puesto en realidad son muy cómodos de usar; y además, te beneficiará en dos maneras: te verás más delgada y bronceada.

Start this Monday by Saying Yes to Things!

Hello,

What I like the most from Mondays is that it is that day of the week where you promise-to or push yourself to start something… Whether it’s doing exercise, eating well or start your new project… Whatever that is, Monday is the day to say yes to that thing you’ve been wanting to do for some time ago. For me, this Monday I’m “saying yes” to exercise… What are you saying yes to?

Enjoy your monday and I leave you with some pictures that I find inspiring for a monday’s mood.

Happy Monday ❤

Love,
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.
