Oh how bummed I was to find that these pictures were blurry! I just recently got a new *real* camera, and haven’t started classes yet… I rushed taking these during our conference (hehe) and was sad that I didn’t have more… Alejandra’s outfit was so awesome, I can’t even put words to it. I was so happy to see Ale because we get along and she is really a down-to-earth, fun girl. And then, I immediately fell in love with the edgy and contemporary look she was wearing and asked to photograph her…. the good news is that she lives nearby me in Boston, so I can throw her on here more (with clear shots!) :) So I would love to break-down my favorite pieces of this outfit, but she honestly nailed it from head to toe, so I’ve gotta just highlight it all. First off, the striped top with tuxedo striped pants (which fit perfectly) is a great play with lines and give the look a modern edge. The chain belt is so edgy and adds extra flair. And then there’s the shoes… oh how I love a pointy flat :) And the color blocking of  black & white just completed the look. She really created some edge to her look with the patterns and accessories here, giving the basic and neutral tones a kick. LOVE!

Have a great weekend!

Estaba súper frustrada cuando me di cuenta que mis fotos estaban burry :( Cuando vi Alejandra en nuestra conferencia, inmediatamente tenía ganas de tomar fotos de ella. Su ropa es padrísimo y me enamoré de su manera de jugar los las líneas y añadir un toque moderno a colores básicos. Aunque estas fotos no son muy buenas, lo bueno es que vive cerca de mi en Boston, así que podemos reunirnos para sacar mas fotos pronto! En cuanto a su ropa.. no tengo una pieza favorita porque cada parte combina perfectamente para crear un look contemporaneo y chic. Me encantan las rayas de la blusa en contra el pantalon con raya de tuxedo. Y el metal de su cinturón añade un toque extra al look, mientras que los zapatos son modernos… amo los zapatos puntiagudos! En fin, Ale dio en el clavo con este look… Lo amo!

Que tengan buenos fines de semana!

    I want her top, belt and shoes. Where did she get them? I love the edginess!

    • Hi Kathy- I don’t know where it is all from, but there are links to similar items up! I do know the shoes are Zara and from a past season though. It is a great look though, I love it too!
