Remember when I last wore this shirt (see here)? So I didn’t change the color scheme at all today, but I did change the outfit silhouette a lot. This look is different for me, as it is flowy up top and below. I usually counter a flowy piece with something more form-fitted, but I am loving this cute and relaxed combination.

Recuerdan la última vez que llevé esta blusa (aquí)? Obviamente no cambié la combinación de colores que llevo con esta blusa, pero sí cambié la silueta de mi look hoy. Esta falda, combinada con esta blusa con arrugas, es atrevido para mí. Normalmente, llevo piezas flojas con algo apretado, para crear un balance entre las siluetas. Peor me gusta mucho la combinación relajada y floja hoy… es linda!    La Mariposa Ruffled Cold Shoulder Top, Zara blue ruffled off the shoulder top, ruffled cold shoulder blouse, summer outfit inspiration, styling a cropped shirt and skirt     La Mariposa Ruffled Cold Shoulder Top, Zara blue ruffled off the shoulder top, ruffled cold shoulder blouse, summer outfit inspiration, styling a cropped shirt and skirt       La Mariposa Ruffled Cold Shoulder Top, Zara blue ruffled off the shoulder top, ruffled cold shoulder blouse, summer outfit inspiration, styling a cropped shirt and skirt, headband braid, dutch braid, summer braided hairstyle

Having a little black skirt (or three) is so useful. It’s just as versatile as a little black dress, except it allows for more outfits and looks, as well as creativity. I wear this skirt year-round, and it never fails to pull-together something new, from date nights to office meetings. I rounded up a variety of black skirts that I think would be ideal in the widget below, so be sure to heck them out. I think they’re all pretty cheap (under $50!), which is well worth it! PS: Isn’t this dot skirt so cute?

Tener una falda negra en su armario es un requisito! Las faldas negras son súper útiles ya que son muy versátiles. Es como un vestido negro, pero puede ser combinado con más y por eso influye más creatividad en los outfits. Llevo los míos (sí, tengo varios) tanto al trabajo que al salir. Abajo les comparto estilos que adoro y que no cuestan mucho (menos que $50!). Vale la pena comprar una falda negra, les juro! PD: Esta falda con lunares es mi favorita!

I think this may be my favorite top, ever. I was so hesitant to try it on because it is cropped and boxy, but I am so in love. First off, the cold-shoulder is really modern and trendy, which I love. The ruffles are feminine and playful at the same time. And the fit is flattering, despite what I thought! I found this shirt from Storets in a few other colors, and I am itching to buy the pink!

Esta camisa es mi favorita de todo tempo. Dudaba probármela porque parecía ancho y corto a primera vista. A ponerla, sin embargo, me di cuenta que la silueta me quedaba muy bien. Además, era cómoda! Las arrugas y los hombros abiertos son toques modernos y femeninos que también adoro. Encontré la misma camisa en Storets y ahora tengo ganas de comprar la rosada!!
