Cropped Tshirt over Marshalls Bodycon Blue & Orange Kaleidoscope Dress  This was right after the little poodle lady came up to hang in our photo session :)

TGIF! I hope you’re ready for the weekend. I’ll be spending mine touring around Puebla, Puebla and Oaxaca, Oaxaca with students and Gracia (who took these awesome photos!). Before we packed up for the trip, I wanted to rock this fun look in Mexico City’s Colonia Roma Norte (where our office is located, and just about the best neighborhood in the city… according to us!). I’ve worn this dress a few times before, and it has quickly become my favorite. It’s funny how something that hugs so snugly can actually make me feel so confident. I think it just really lets me show off my curves, which I clearly don’t mind.

I’ve told you how this was a $10 purchase from Marshalls (insane!) and today I wanted to wear it in a different way than usual. Who says a dress can only serve one purpose? I tied up this top to make it a super high-rise skirt, and I loved the outcome. I don’t exactly have a variety of shoes or bags to choose from in Mexico, but I don’t mine the mix of neutrals against this busy pattern. What do you all think?

I’m not sure how much time I will have to post on Monday, but I’ll do my best. :) If not, enjoy this look (I surely did!). Thanks for stopping by

¡TGIF! Espero que estén muy bien y listos para el fin de semana. Estaré viajando a Puebla y Oaxaca con estudiantes y Gracia (mi amiga talentoso que sacó estas fotos). Antes de salir, quería llevar un vestido (aunque llovía y llovía cada día esta semana). En vez de utilizar este vestido de la misma manera, decidí a poner una camiseta arriba, para crear una falda. Llevé este vestido, que me queda muy bien, en la Colonia Roma Norte (mi favorita parte del DF) en uno de mis últimos días aquí. Es irónicao porque, aunque me queda muy apretado el vestido, me da mucha confianza llevarlo. Creo que es porque me permite mostrar mis curvas, que, obviamente, me gustan :) 

La mejor parte es que el vestido me costó $!0 (les dije que tienen que buscar vestidos en Marshalls!) y es tan bonito y elegante. Espero que les guste. No sé si voy a poder hacer una entrada para el lunes pero intentaré mostrarles los looks que llevo este fin de semana. Si no, espero que les guste este look.. obviamente yo sí lo amo :)

Gracias por leer y que tengan un bonito fin de semana! 

-Raque
