Metallic Off the Shoulder

Hi hi! Today I’m sharing what I wore for Matt’s birthday dinner last week. We went to an awesome steakhouse in Boston called Mooo, which was more than enough reason for me to dress up :)

¡Hola! Hoy les comparto el outfit que llevé para la cena del cumpleaños de Matt la semana pasada. Fuimos a una churrasquería que se llama Mooo en Boston, que fue la perfecta razón de vestirme formal :)

So Matt’s birthday was a crazy day for me at work (as in the “I have no time for lunch” day), so I only had about 10 minutes to get ready by the time I got home. I opted for a high pony, since I needed a sassy hairstyle in a pinch. I am not the hair-back type (unless it’s a topknot bun), but I had fun with this funky style- so unexpected! Matt didn’t know where we were going for dinner and couldn’t figure it out with my outfit, which made it even more fun!

El cumpleaños de Matt fue un día ocupado para mí. Fue un día en el trabajo en donde no pude comer, porque no tuve tiempo de pararme de mis tareas. Odio esos días jaja. Tuve 10 minutos para prepararme para la cena cuando regresé y por eso, puse mi pelo arriba. No llevo mi pelo así normalmente- lo prefiero suelto- pero de hecho, es un estilo muy divertido. Viene con una actitud muy juvenil.

I decided to wear metallics, because I always feel like they’re festive. First off- this off the shoulder metallic top from Zara is so fun. I can see myself wearing it just as much for a dinner date now as I would to a New Years party during winter. I went with the obvious choice of black pants, but it would be great with a burgundy leather or distressed denim too. The best part is that it is under $30!

Mi tema festivo incluyó cosas divertidas! Esta blusa metálica es la mejor parte del outfit, verdad? La compré en Zara por $30. La puedo llevar tanto ahorita como en enero- ser´â perfecto para el año nuevo, no?

I’m a big fan of MAC lipsticks, and I always save my empty makeup items to submit for a free lippy (you can get a free lip or shadow with 6 empty items- even travel size counts!). This orangey red, called Chili, is my most recent freebie lipstick from MAC. I love its warm tone, and how smooth it goes on. It’s from a matte line, which is surprising as it’s quite moisturizing and smooth.

Soy gran fan de los pintalabios de MAC. Simpre guardo mi maquillaje vacío para entregarlo a MAC como parte del programa de reciclaje. Con seis piezas vacíos (de cualquier cosa), puedes recibir un pintalabios gratis. Este color, chili, es lo que acabo de escoger como mi pieza gratis. Es una combinación de rojo y naranjo, y un tono muy, muy lindo para el otoño.

And last but not least came some final touches- my accessories were gold heels, this velvet choker and black onyx ring. I love my feminine style, but adding edgy pieces is always unexpected and allows me to be playful with my outfits. I also felt that they were dramatic and great for an evening out. What do you think?

Y últimamente añadí unos accesorios para completar mi look. Me puse tacones dorados, esta gargantilla negra y mi favorito anillo ónix. Aunque normalmente escojo piezas femeninas, me gusta ponerme algo inesperado y atrevido, especialmente para la noche. ¿Qué opinan?
