Spring Pastels

Zara Pleated Pastel Midi Skirt, Easter Outfit Inspo

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was a long one for Easter, which was spent relaxing and outside. It was so warm here. Though I didn’t dress-up for Easter, I styled this skirt as if I were doing so. I thought the pastel stripes were perfect for a spring holiday, and also so cheerful. What I actually wore on Easter was casual, comfy clothing. Matt and I spent the entire weekend walking around Boston, enjoying the summer-like weather. We also always love going downtown during the weekend just before Patriot’s Day. That way, we can see all of the visitors in town, as well as the memorial and finish line of the Boston Marathon. It’s a special weekend for everybody here, and it always seems to be a colorful and warm one!

¡Feliz día! Espero que hayan tenido un lindo fin de semana. Lo mío era largo, y lleno de mis favoritas actividades. Pasamos mucho tiempo afuera porque hacía calor! También nos gusta ir a Back Bay durante el fin antes de Maratón de Boston para ver toda la gente visitando. Y aunque no tuvimos planes de hacer nada especial para la Pascua, todavía quería ponerme algo lindo para el día especial. La Pascua siempre me hace pensar en pasteles, es el día festivo de la primavera, y por eso escogí esta falda de Zara. Es perfecto, no?

Happy Holidays! Haha, just kidding. But really, Thanksgiving is right around the corner- do you have your outfit already picked out? I have mine :) If you are in need of some inspiration, I’e got you covered. I’m rounding up some gorgeous, stylish and affordable pieces for the holiday from Asos, my favorite quick-ship shop.

¡Felices fiestas jaja! Pero en realidad, aunque parece temprano, el Día de Acción de Gracias está a punto de llegar…. ya tienes un outfit? SI necesitas ideas, te puedo ayudar. Hoy llevo un look perfecto para los días festivos, y les comparto blusas de Asos, una tienda que adoro para piezas de moda y baratas.

For the perfect holiday piece, I would recommend anything that’s velvet. It’s so rich in texture, and typically made with a deep, bold hue. I love this burgundy velvet top. The off-the-shoulder detail adds some femininity to a luscious holiday style. It’s new from Asos and below I am sharing many other velvet finds from there as well. So much to choose from! I also added on metallic pieces, like my ring and purse, to give my holiday look some glam.

Para algo festivo, les recomiendo alguna pieza de terciopelo. Tiene una textura especial para el invierno, y casi siempre está disponible en un tono fuerte y vivo. Esta blusa de borgoña es hermosa y muy festiva, no? Es de Asos, y abajo les comparto otras ideas de lo que podrían llevar. Además que el terciopelo, añadí metales. Creo que los tonos de oro son elegantes, especialmente en una bolsa

For the final touch… beautiful makeup. This red from Aveda (called Carnelian) is by far my favorite. I say this all the time with reds, but this one really is stunning. Not only does it make your teeth glow (seriously!), but it is so vivid in its color. It is ideal for the holidays! I am also wearing a rose and plum eyeshadow mix, to play with my burgundy look. It’s unique and perfect for a special occasion.

Para el último toque, me puse maquillaje bonito. Este pintalabios de Aveda, que se llama carnelian, es hermoso. El color es rico y fuerte, y llevándolo, parece que mis dientes están súper blancos jaja. Además que los labios rojos, hice mis ojos con una mezcla de rosado y morado, para llevar bien con mi blusa. Es un look único y lindo, verdad?

¡Feliz Día de la Independencia, amig@s! Espero que hayan tenido un lindo fin de semana. Hemos pasado cada día con amigos en muchas fiestas. Es la mejor manera de pasar el tiempo, no? Si cada fin de semana pudiera ser de tres días, la vida sería muy dulce, verdad?

I think I’ve worn some combination of red, white, and blue every day this weekend. Besides my patriotic nails (scroll below to see close-ups!), I’ve been using just about every red item I own. Pairing that with denim makes for the easiest patriotic look, without having to buy anything new even.

He llevado alguna combinación de rojo, blanco, y azul casi cada día durante la semana pasada. Además que mis uñas, estoy llevando algo rojo con mis jeans para crear looks patrióticos. ¡Es muy fácil y creativo!

If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen the new bag in my life. This Kate Spade white structured purse is a dream bag! I have been on the hunt for a beautiful, white purse for over a year now and I finally found one that was on sale! I love that this bag has an added body strap, fits my camera, and has a bold hue. And can we talk about my nails? That was hard haha. I showed the process on Snapchat (RachelMRaquel), and let’s just say my story was lengthy!

Si me siguen en Instagram, ya saben que acabo de comprar una bolsa nueva. Esta bolsa blanca de Kate Spade es lo máximo. He buscado algo parecido hace un año y por fin lo encontré durante las rebajas. Me gusta el tamaño, el color limpio, y que puede ser usado sobre mi cuerpo o con las manos.
