Velvet Green Jumpsuit

Asos New Look Pajama Style Velvet Emerald Green Jumpsuit

Have you ever seen a jumpsuit so fabulous?! I have been waiting to wear this one for over a month now (!!). The velvet material is perfect for winter. It’s so luscious and has a soft, interesting textures. But because it’s cropped, I didn’t want to wear it in Boston’s freezing winter temperatures. Nobody likes cold ankles, right?! Now that it finally reached the high 40s I figured I could wear it. I’m so glad I got it because it was a unique pantsuit for work, and transitioned well to hang out after hours. At work I wore flat black loafers. But for nighttime, I though these leopard pumps made for a fun combination. What do you think? The best news is that it’s now on mega-sale and under $40!

¿Has visto otro mono mejor que este verde? He esperado desde enero para llevar este mono. Me encanta el color verde oscuro. Y el terciopelo es una tela tan interesante y único, que no hay nada parecido en mi armario al mono. Lo triste es que, ya que las piernas del mono están cortas, no lo pude llevar durante los últimos meses. Hacía demasiado frío para mostrar los tobillos! Por fin pude ponérmelo y decidí a usarlo para el trabajo. Llevé zapatos sin tacones para trabajar, pero pienso que los tacones leopardos son geniales con el verde, cierto? Y la mejor parte es que cuesta menos que $40!

Black and White Work Outfit

Continuing with stylish work-wear, here’s another outfit that is trendy, affordable, and appropriate for work. I actually didn’t wear this one to work, but I wore it to an equally formal event for my sorority. I attended the Boston Sigma Kappa Founders’ Day celebration as an alum, which was so fun. I always love a good reason to get dressed-up and hang with my girlfriends, and this was the perfect event.

Siguiendo con ropa para el trabajo, les comparto un outfit de la moda en que pueden trabajar. Además, es muy económico.  No lo llevé al trabajo de hecho, pero lo llevé a otro evento formal. Ayer fue una celebración de las fundadoras de Sigma Kappa. Fui con otras alumnas de la sororidad y fue súper divertido.

After the event a group of us went to Sunset Cantina- a casual TexMex, margarita restaurant in the neighborhood- for some more fun. We walked from one end of Boston University to the other basically and my feet were totally fine wearing these heeled booties. They’re the best! I think the block-heel style is what really makes them comfortable, and the color is what makes them extra gorgeous.

Después de la celebración, algunas alumnas fuimos a Sunset Cantina- un restaurante mexicana/tejana que tiene ricas margaritas jaja. Caminaba de un lado de la Universidad de Boston hacia el otro en mis botas y no me dolían los pies. ¡Increíble! Estas botas son geniales.

Aveda sent me some makeup the other week, which I have been loving testing out. I’m wearing Carnelian today- the most beautiful red hue. I have to do an entire post on this red because it is so rich and bold. It’s ideal for the holidays! I used to wear Aveda makeup a lot when I worked at a salon in college, but I have to admit it’s been a while. The nourish-mint line is so smooth and creamy that I know I will be back trying out new colors soon!

Aveda me regaló maquillaje la otra semana y estoy obsesionada.  El color de este pintalabios, Carnelian, es hermosísimo. Es el perfecto rojo para las fiestas. No he llevado maquillaje de Aveda hace unos años, pero ahora tengo muchas ganas de regresar a comprar otros colores jaja.

Sailor Style

I know, I know… I look a bit like a sailor today. It’s okay though! I think this is a pretty cute sailor’s outfit :)  I’m not usually a navy/blue person at all, but every so often I find pieces that are really eye-catching. This sweater and these pants were both pieces that really caught my attention in Zara. They’re from different seasons, and if you don’t know yet… Zara is the best!

Sí, sé lo que vas a decir… que este outfit es parecido a lo que llevan los marineros jaja. No me importa, creo que este look es súper lindo! No llevo azul marino mucho pero cada vez en cuando, encuentro unas piezas hermosísimas que compro. Este suéter y estos pantalones son esas piezas. Los compré en Zara– una tienda y marca que adoro.

This sweater is super soft and its cropped style is really trendy. It’s great for high-waisted pants or skirts, and overalls, too! I especially love the embellishments on it, which add just a tiny flare. When I first put it on, Matt thought I had sewn the beading on myself haha. I guess it’s obvious that I’m a girl who likes bling!

Este suéter es súper suave y el corte, de moda. Me gusta llevarlo con faldas y pantalones que llevo alta en la cintura. Y mi favorita parte es los adornos. Matt pensó que los hice yo jaja… es que siempre llevo cosas brillantes y adornadas!

I think these are the coolest dress pants I have ever owned. I love the high-waisted fit and the gold button details. I also like the wide leg and open flare. They’re so chic and unique! Fun fact: according to the way they’re styled at Zara, they’re supposed to sit low on the hip and be super loose. I preferred them snug and high, though. What do you think?!

Creo que estos pantalones son los más chidos que he tenido. Me queda exactamente como quiero. En la página de Zara, son estilados muy flojos, pero los quería llevar apretados y pulidos. Los botones dorados son súper hermosos también, verdad? Creo que los voy a combinar con algo flojo arriba la próxima vez que los llevo.
