Fourth of July Inspo

How To Host a 4th of July Picnic

Happy Fourth of July (almost)! I know many of you may be celebrating with friends, so I’m re-posting this picnic set-up as some inspiration for your parties today and tomorrow. This picnic shoot was a collaboration with Marshalls- so just about everything you see here (save the food) was found at my local store. Find the original post with details here. My top suggestions are: food variety, games, and tons of red, white & blue! We were totally missing s’mores here, which are a must-have in my book for the 4th.

¡Feliz Día de la Independencia para los estadounidenses! Sé que muchos de ustedes van a tener fiestas hoy y mañana con la familia y amigos, y por eso les muestro estas fotos de 2015, cuando hice un picnic para amigos para celebrar el día festivo. Este picnic fue una colaboración con Marshalls y casi todo que vean aquí compré en mi tienda local. Mis sugerencias para una fiesta exitosa son: variedad de comida (y mucha comida/bebidas), juegos, decoraciones, y s’mores. Creo que todo eso es requerido para el 4 de julio jaja. ¡Felices fiestas!

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?
